Dear members of IDB,

We are a curious bunch of moderators and we are interested to know the demographics of IDB. We have made a really short survey and would be grateful if people could click and complete. The survey will run for 2 weeks, after this time if people want to know the results we will publish them on here.

How did you find IDB?
There were 278 responses to this questions, the majority of which was via GG with Tumblr and Google coming a close second.
However we did have some great answers to this question, some of which are below (all anonymous but if one of the comments is yours and you want it removed, please PM me);
> Out of sheer luck. Most likely through a search for information and a link leading me there.
> I love Mandy's fics a lot and she mentioned it on tumblr or something and I was like "okay this definitely will not ruin my life" and here we are
> I was looking for Deppy's tour bus and stumbled across the forum
> Felucca's Youtube comment about IDB!
> gg --> bam day --> been here since the begining
> by accident.
> People shading you on tumblr lmao (I think it's great tho dw)
> Oqua's IDB fic.
> I noticed the sign in Dan's bedroom and wanted to know if anyone had decoded what it said. I found a discussion about it on IDB and never left!

Thank you all again for taking part, feel free to discuss the results in this thread if you want to. Maybe next time we will ask a few more questions just to see if the demographics have changed at all.

I'm glad to see the over-35 contingent is not as small as I feared. Shoutout to fellow middle-aged nose perverts! :ribena:

Hey hey to the over-30s! Didn't think there was that many of us! - But aside from that, and that so many perma-lurkers responded (Hey you guys! :welcome: Post! We don't bite!!) The results were about what I expected. How about anyone else?

Some of those responses tho. :bigthumbsup:

Genuinely surprised the majority are twenty-somethings, but it probably makes sense :bigthumbsup:
