No ill intended, sorry for the confusion, I've opened the boomerang generation link, but my net is failing so I aint sure when I will see it.

EDIT: Seen it, yeah, the terminology is Australian but the application seems to be centred in the US.

I would have thought Gen X would be leading also considering the name of the forum is Planet AD&D! Honestly it's a really small sample here though. If you go on Dragonsfoot I bet the majority will be Gen X and Boomers. If you go on ENWorld the majority will be Millennials and Zoomers. Facebook an older crowd, twitter a younger crowd. It really depends on where you sample.

Based on past conversations with him, I am certain Cole is GenX.

I did the boomerang thing once for two weeks in my early 20's. I had just moved back from out of state. Took me that long to find a job and a place to live.

I think we should reclassify the names by D&D types just for fun. Jaded you started this thread, what do you think?

I second Lukafio but I wonder if I understand what he means by "D&D types"... Do you mean, like classes? (Bards, mage, paladins, etc) or do you mean like playing strategies favoured? (I only know the munchkin and the roleplayer, munchkin definitely is 5Edition or anything from 3 onwards).

It doesn't look like I can edit the poll options, so the only way to do that would be to start over with a new poll.

In any case we would need to handle the types and agree which cohorts favour which type... maybe Cole can

No worries

Hegdeh, by types I meant: :knight:
    Chainmail
    D&D
    AD&D
    2E
    3E
    3.5
    4E
    5E
Instead of Boomer, GenX, GenWhy, GenZ, GenAlfa
