So when you first joined NG, did you lie about your age? Mainly due to site rules and the crusades against thirteen year old kids?

I remember joining when I was 12 years old and claimed I was sixteen. I'd be 22 years old now if that were the case.


You know what would be really neat? These things actually being noticeable.

I don't recall if I did or not, but I am 17. Too lazy to count the years, although I might have.

I told the truth, though I was 18 so I had no reason to lie.


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

Nope; didn't have to. I found the site at 14; made my first account at 16, and made this one at 21.

Websites had to be pretty good to be worth the dial-up loading times back when I was 12, so even if I had found the site I probably wouldn't have stuck around since there really wasn't much on here back in 1999 / 2000.

I was 13 when I joined. So I did need to lie about my age. I also had to lie to keep my Gmail later on, since now they have a policy against anyone under 18. I think I was 16 when they introduced that policy, but im getting off topic now. I dont need to lie about shit anymore.

I can't recall. I was 10 when I first found the site and signed up when I was around 12 or 13 back in '05. I most likely did lie about my age.

As you can tell, this is a newer account. I'm 21 this sunday.

I didn't make an account until I was 16 so I didn't really have any reason to lie about my age. I first discovered NG at the age of 13, so I suppose if I had made an account from the start I wouldn't have had any need to lie about my age back then either, but if I had made an account in 1999 or 2000 I probably would have bumped my age up a bit.

Nah. I was 18 when I joined. These days if I were to lie about my age then it would be in the opposite direction and I'd claim to be 20 or something.

I wasn't sure if I'd be me when I joined though or the opposite sex. I spent like 2 or 3 years prior to joining NG acting out as someone else. It was an accident how it happened but damn I could not stop it. Glad I didn't become that person again. I hate me, but I prefer to be me then pretend to be someone who isn't me.

I didn't lie. I was 11 when I discovered the site, but I didn't make an account until I was 14. Then I promptly forgot about it until I was about 16, when I ventured here, to the BBS for the first time.

I was 17 when I signed up, so I was always one of the "older" guys here on NG.
