I can't believe I had an attention span that long for Omni >.>

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

Normally they join around 14-16 but we sometimes get 12-13 years old members too as well as adult ones who programmed calcs for ages before joining or older people in their 40s who are just interested in old school hardware. People who join past 14 usually stay until they start college and turn 18 and the 12-13 years old members usually stay for less than 6 months since at this age they have a much shorter attention span.
I shall try to stay for my entire life! (or if Omni collapses/is swallowed by Cemetech :trollface:, whichever comes first )

Lol I was 14, but I came back!
You just lost the game.

It's now old enough to sign up on forums! With the permission of its parents! How cool is that?
I give it permission. Let the meta begin.
out of interest, What's about the average age of Omni members?
I could run a query of all the members who actually record their age.

I think the average age of omni members (the active ones, that is) is slowly moving up and I think the average is 14-15 right now. Just some guesstimations.

Happy birthday, Omni!

Now to get all the younger members to move up into calc programming so they eventually release new games that rival 2011-13 Axe featured games :P
 
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Just hope they don't have a false age.

No, just hope I can actually filter out enough false ages. Currently with what I've filtered out (like born in 1337) the average is 44. Going to filter more later.

Well congratulations on keeping the website going. I do not think that phones will overtake calculators.
You see phones will never make it in for serious testing there will always be a market for calculators.
Also I do not own a phone believe it or not, yes I have seen them and they look cool but I like a calculator better for serious math. I have no inclination to touch the screen every time I want to type a number.

Nah people can stick to whatever language they want. I meant moving up from quadratic solvers towards the bigger, more original games (although of course stuff like Supersonic Ball requires something else than TI-BASIC unless removing scrolling).

No, just hope I can actually filter out enough false ages. Currently with what I've filtered out (like born in 1337) the average is 44. Going to filter more later.
Yeah even 44 seems quite high. Somebody possibly just entered some weird number without necessarily entering the max or some popular number like you mentionned.

 A lot of the older less active members are now way past 18 but the newer ones mostly joined at a younger age in general. It would be interesting to see what's the average age of only the users who have posted within the last month.

It depends. Eventually, TI could simply release a proprietary tablet based on Android on which wi-fi and many other features are locked down or restricted. But perhaps their best bet would be releasing advanced Android and iOS Apps that are compliant with exams, so basically the class could connect to the teacher phone and the teacher phone would warn the teacher if a student exits the calculator app.

But even if calcs were to disappear entirely from the hi school and college landscape, look at what happened to the Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Sega Genesis development scene in the last decade or so. Pier Solar, for example, was released for the Sega Genesis in 2010, 12 years after the console was discontinued, and they're still planning to do a 3rd print run for that console.
