    I'll be 18 in May. I'm the youngest of three co-admins on a our 1.7 million post forums, but I'm largely there for technical stuff as opposed to running the business. The others are 21 and 28.

          Err... let's do a little quick math here. If you're 25 now, 21 is the youngest you could have been when vB was first released in April of 2000.

            I feel 26, but my true age is **!

            Girls never like to admit their age.

            :cool: That which is obvious, needs no introduction. :cool:

              I think he meant 25 licenses.

                I turned 27 on January 21st

                They run ./configure in 1976 and make install finished in 1977 took about 9 months!

                      Nope. Look at his profile. His birthdate is February 7th, 1979, which makes him 25.

                        He probably started off with UBB or so, then switched to vB once vB came into existance...

                        I don't judge professionalism by "the size of their board" or "the amount of income" a board brings.
                        I judge professionalism on presentation, attitude, and above all, quality of content.

                        And when it comes to that, those three apply not onto you, as far as I'm concerned, but I know several "minors" who run perfectly great websites in a very professional way, who just don't try to get as many people on there, but rather just make and run the site(s) for the fun of it. And they never go out of their way to slander other admins.

                        All I'm saying is, you don't have to have a "big money-making community board" to be professional. Someone who puts in more money than s?he gets out of it and just does it to provide a sort of 'online home' for a small yet cosy community can be just as professional, if not more so, than a huge board with thousands upon thousands of active members. Regardless of the topic of the board.


                        Oh, and I'm 21 btw

                          I'm 18 at the moment, but will be 19 in may. Most of the people that help me out are 18/19 too.

                              I too am under 18... 16, do be exact. Most of the members at my forum are around 14-25. I don't think we have very many "adults" posting.

                                21 in a week

                                It's weird cuz I first started my forum when I was 16 with UBB and the core group of members I started out with are still around a few younger, a few older and a lot my age so I've seen people grow up lol it's very strange. I cannot believe it's been so long! Damn, it feel like yesterday I was hacking a UBB tryin go figure out perl without reading anything (I dont read LOL)
