I know some of you do not wish to list your real age, location, etc. I want to ask that if you don't want to list it please do not list it. While it seems funny to be a 6 year old or 120 year old it messes with our demographics.
Why does this matter?
For years Game Developers have brought our family in to top secret projects. They ask me to select people between age ranges, locations, and sometimes even genders to help them test, build, and create panels for their games. I can not effectively do this if people are making up their age or location. It hurts our families ability to provide reliable data to game developers and makes it very difficult to build teams. Our demographics are provided to both game developers and the media (No Names attached) so that they may see if we can fill the needs they require. This is exactly how we were involved in RIFT's creation and Guild Wars 2's creation so if you want to be a part of these things in the future we need acurate messurements.
Bottom line, If you don't want to say leave it blank. Don't lie.
Be sure to update your profiles today as I have added "Gender" to the list and know of one little project where their going to want X number of men and X number of women. I can only involve you if you fill this out.
Also note I've added a new checkbox to hide personal information that will not display name, age, gender, location on your profile.
