    A year ago when I got into this hobby, I felt like I was already late to the party and I'm probably in the last generation that is interested in pinball.

    After reading a thread "thoughts-after-years-offline" where many thought that this hobby was only kept alive by older generation because of the nostalgia and there are not enough younger people interested, I got an idea of creating this poll about Pinsider's age. This of course does not represent all of the hobbyists out there, but we'll get some clue about age distribution.

    Quoted from poppapin:

    You'll have to move all the results from those polls up one group now...

    So far the results are a lot different than I imagined.
    Maybe older generations haven’t found their way to internet yet?
