How old are you? I want to give this question and to gather some statistics about ages of programmers. Certainly, I know that this stats won't be full. But I hope somewhat to do it.

I'm 22 and started problem solving at this site at the age of 20. I solved a bit more than 1000 problems so far.

IT IS FOR ALL. Attention please:
Don't just choose your age. If you can and it won't be hard for you, then I want you to write how many problems you have done from problemset in It is for stats too. I gather it also to know "the power of ages".
Thank you. 8)

Hmmm. I'm 44 and just have started visiting sites of this type... :)
But maybe I am the odd one out (as I've been most of my life) :D

I not sure it is the best way. There is something like 30000 registered users, only 1500 on the board, but I hope this topic won't have 1500 replies. If you want those statistics (i really like statistics as well), then you can try to ask the systems administrators to implement it as optional array in our profil or something like that. Most of the time fnpc uprade the OJ some day after your request in the worst case.

My stats : I'm 20. Register for 1 year. AC pb : 100. ( Not really good, but never cheated :wink: ).
Don't forget to post your own statistics.

Yes. You are right. I know that there are many users or teams that just don't need this forum. What about me, I need such help that I can get from this forum. But those who don't need it, among them there are maybe the best programmers in the world. They are those who just come here for fun or something else. Among registered 30000 users only 20000 submitted more than 0 problems. They need this site only for online contests, not for training. And I suppose that nearly 1000..2000 users have been registered twice (registered with two or more accounts). And if everyone who open this page just to take a look will vote, then I hope to gather more statistics. By the moment I write it, nearly ~90 men just looked and nearly ~20 gave their vote. It is only 23 percent. It will be better not just for this topic, but for all, to help if you can help in some problems.

Thank you for reading this. I hope that you will pay attention to the words said above.
