I think posts are disproportionately made by mentors. If everyone got as many votes as they had posts in the past month, it would be a different story.

I’d say CD has more lurkers that are around highschool age or recently graduated college alumni or mentors since it is focused around a highschool robotics competition, but the people who write posts and participate in discussion are more likely to be adult mentors.

I wouldn't be surprised if students tend to lurk more for various reasons. Mentors and alumni also make up a lot of the big names here, so you see them more often.

I would tend to believe that there are quite a large number of lurking adults.

I know I was one of them for the first few years of our program...
It can be very daunting posting here. Many great mind with so much experience and impressive backgrounds, though a few have little patience and are quick to put you in your place with a snarky retort ..

Not really a negative thing but many times GP is not included in the correction/slap down which creates hesitations to post....

Just saying...

This isn't CD's demo, it's the demo of people who responded to the survey.

“These poll results are surprising”? Don’t you mean “The results of this poll are terrifying“?

I'm 29, but act like I'm either 10 years younger or 10 years older. Or both.


Does reminding freshmen (and older) that you've been in FRC longer than they've been alive mean that you're old, ancient, or a fossil? *shakes cane*

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

I am old as well, however still don't understand how when I see an old person, that they are likely my age. And who is that old guy in the bathroom every morning when I shave?

I'm 24 (25 come December), so I'm in that fun age where I dont get the appeal of Fortnite, I get and enjoy memes, and I flex on the freshmen in Magic the Gathering.
