What is your online age? - January 28th 2011, 04:15 PM

How long have you been using the internet to communicate with people you did not know? I don't mean how old is your TH age, I mean your internet. As in, when did you first sign up for a forum, or first start going to a chat room?

I first started using the nick.com messageboards on January 1, 2003. I always credit this to my 'online birthday.' I was 10, soon to be 11. But my online age is 8 years.

I didn't venture out to 'big kid sites' until I was almost 14.

What's yours?

Re: What is your online age? - January 28th 2011, 04:33 PM

My internet age is 15/16 years.

I started using chat rooms in 1996 but I began using the net in 1995.

My age for posting on forums, however, is six; although I registered on the now-defunct site in January 2003, eight years ago. I lurked for like a year and half, posted occasionally in 2004 but truly began getting into the forum biz in April of 2005.

Umm, I first went into a chat room when I was about 11. Not that I told people I was 11...I always said 16 or 18.

I joined The Sims 2 forum when I was 15. xD But it was by far not my first forum. I was a part of the Sims community for a good two active years.

I joined TH when I was 15, it was the first forum I joined.

I started using the internet when I almost turned 14 (there was about 2 or 3 months left). I've been using computer before that though, just not the internet; my parents won't let me use it. Now that we mentioned it, those were fun time. Back then I didn't even know what Lol means, xD.

So, as of now, I've been using the internet for only 4 years.

I think the only forum other than TH I've ever used is a Sims 1 forum. Yeah. I'm a nerd. And that was when I was like....11? 12? 13? But I'd been using the internet long before that. :P

I can't find when porn came on the interwebs, but that's why I said "trying" to find porn. I never mentioned that I was successful. I didn't start looking at porn till I was 8-9 years old. But I tried in 1995-1996 just to see what sex was and stuff. I saw a video that I shouldn't have seen and it peaked my interest. But no, it wasn't sarcasm.

Embarrassing but my first internet experience was joining a Harry Potter community- bludgersandbroomsticks if anyone remembers it. :P There was also this site, colourfun...also gone now. Then I discovered other sites, like forums, through my sister who was an actual HP fan. I joined a few, even did "roleplaying"...I didn't even know anything about HP at the time. I just liked it cuz my sister did. I even made my own website, custom graphics and all. It still might be up. That was when Freewebs was Freewebs lol. I was about 10 when I started. My computer usage was exclusively games (like Lego Island and Barbie Pet Rescue and Zoo Tycoon and Age of Empires) but soon enough I was only going on to view the internet. I eventually strayed from my sister's interests and developed some of my own. I took up coding. I was really young, and a girl, but I never admitted either of those things. My dad scored a copy of Photoshop 7 at the time too, so my fate was predetermined.

My online age is 7.

I started using the internet when I was 4 or 5, so 11 to 12 years old :P

I played a lot of video games at that age too, like Age of Empires, Zoo Tycoon, Roller-coaster Tycoon.

By the time I was 8 I enjoyed games like Call of Duty, Medal of Honor.

When I was 10 I played games like Command and Conquer, and got into online strategy games.

I signed up for Facebook when I was 14 or so.

I would say mine is about 8/9

I used to go on things like habbo hotel and club penguin when I was about 9/10. There was one called SoulKool too but that one was really creepy, a lot of people asking to cyber... it's closed down now

In high school (12) I started on websites like myspace, bebo, piczo and I also had facebook at like 13 but no one else I knew had it for another year ish (I saw my brother on it and copied )

Came here at 15.
