Ok, i dont believe i saw SiSteves age in the "How old are you?" Thread, so i am asking u guys to take a guess on the age of our site administrator.

My guess:

35:D

He is the species of Yoda right, so I will guess 675.

He's 28. JediTricks is 25.

Well, this site must take a lot of time so he must be independently wealthy. It started before Qualcom split, so his money is pre-dotcom. He doesn't seem like a young rich spoiled brat so I guess that he's in his late thirties to mid-forties.

oops. Steve is 31. JediTricks is 27 or 28 depending on his birthday...I was looking at the wrong thing...You can find out SirSteves name by going to the int'l Webmaster list. Then type his name in to a people finder list, to find his address, phone # etc. then go to that local areas DOT website to find out his height and weight and driving record and the color of his eyes, etc...including his birthday.

i was just joking, of course. International Webmaster List??? Heh. But Steve really is 31... that part's true...;)

Let's see...
Sir Steve is old enough to remember when TPM first came out, so that makes him at least 2 1/2.
But in order to post on this site, you have to be 13, right? So he was born in at least 1988.
I think you need to be 16 to be knighted, so Sir Steve at least past that age.
Since JediTricks works for him, and JT's 26 this year, most bosses these days are barely older than the employees, so I'd guess SS to be, uh, 26 + x, with "x" being some unknown variable.

Am I right, Sir Steve? :D

Wouldn't it be funny if he turned out to be a 10 year old kid :eek: :D ;) running this site :eek:

I think his at least a couple years younger than Jeditricks :)

I'd like to see a 70-year old who knows HTML. Now that would be shocking! SirSteve is too mature to be a 10-year old kid. And he doesn't misspell words or say "like" all the time. :p

Hmm I used to chat in the SirSteve chatroom about 9 years ago, and back then he was 23ish i think. So my guess is he's about 32ish! Anyone else remember the good ole days of the chatroom? :D

Steve, JediTricks, and I are all about the same age or within 1-2 years of each other. As a matter of fact, you could include JediMasterSal, Kidhuman, PlasticFetish, ElChuxter and so many more of us in that approximate age bracket.

However, I act like I'm 20 years younger than that. :D

It keeps me young and makes them age. lol

Seriously, Star Wars is celebrating its 30th Anniversary and figure that each of us was around for the KENNER vintage days, which should place all of us in our early 30's now.

The site has some "seniors" in their 40's, and maybe older, and some "juniors" in their teens and 20's, too.

But SW is 30 and so is the bulk of its fandom.

8-track. Wow. Those are old school. I don't even remember them well. All I can recall is that, after they were played several times, you sorta heard all the songs at once.

All I can recall is that, after they were played several times, you sorta heard all the songs at once.I have a stereo that has a cassette deck, an AM/FM radio, a turntable, AND an 8-track player. Have no idea if it still works, being that I have no 8-tracks. (Actually, I might have a SW soundtrack 8-track somewhere, but I won't chance messing that thing up, even if I could find it).

As for SS's age, I'd guess that he's older now than he was before.
And now he's older than he's ever been
And now he's even older
And now he's even older
And now he's even older
He's older than he's ever been
And now he's even older
And now he's older still.

SirSteve is so old, he hung out with Burger King when he was a prince

He is so old, he went to Pizza Hut when it was a tent.

He is so old, he farts dust.

That can't be accurate at all. Star Wars was released in 1977 which means that most of the target audience would have been born between about 1966 and 1973. I'm currently 38 and was in 2nd grade when the first movie hit screens and the toys were released. Much older than that and the toys weren't important. Much younger and the movie wouldn't have made much sense... until the re-releases post 1983.

If the bulk of Star Wars fandom matched the age of Star Wars ANH, then the bulk of the fans would have been newborns or less on opening day. I can't see the logic in that. Most of us "old-timers" were actually self-aware when the first tickets went on sale and the empty "gift" box was released at Christmas. Here-here to all fans everywhere, but it is those of us in our late thirties to early forties who can claim responsibility for supporting the initial merchandising efforts as well as a great deal of the movie's success.

Tycho
11-18-2007, 01:28 PM
In the SW scheme of things, 38 is about the same as 30. But Stillakid is correct, many fans are slightly older than exactly 30.

Don't forget that SW was such a hit, that in 1979 it was re-released in theaters before the 1980 release of ESB.

Thus you could have been born as early as 1974 and been able to understand a theatrical presentation of the movie in 1979 (and even attended - possibly in diapers - the 1977 releaase).

Also the toys were not out until 1978, so if they are ages 4 & up, 1974 would be a good birthdate for the bulk of the youngest Original OT fans.

Sure, if you're older you can be a fan. Everyone became a Star Wars fan in those days.

Of course! But what I'm saying is that there was that age window where the majority of fans/toy-players-with would now be in their late thirties to early forties by now. Of course older fans were made the world-round, but they didn't generally run out to "collect" the toys the way that particular audience did. And after "we" locked the hobby into place, the younger whippersnappers came in to discover it all too. :)

jjreason
11-18-2007, 07:42 PM
I'm 35 going on 36. I saw ANH for the first time when I was 6 - it was about a year old. I feel like I'm the realm of having been the perfect age to be about as profoundly influenced by Star Wars as a person can be.

But then, I've always held an overly high opinion of myself. :love::D

What you need to do is look at who's backing Caesar. It's the same special interests that back Rocketboy, Cappy, and Slicker, JimJamBonds and so forth.

If you want to vote for real change you need to call for the return of Derek and Emperor Howdy, perhaps DeadEye and Rollo Tomassi - and fully fund a surge in whatever Stillakid's latest initiative is.
