So basically I was just wandering at what age players on here starting playing this game and how long they've been playing.

I started when I was 8-9 (with my parents permission cos I was underaged hehe ) until now (almost 14 years old) which is five years almost on eggcave. Looking back at my PMs and old wall posts really makes me cringe at my old self and realise how long I've been here for.

So I was just curious if I was the only one who started playing at such an 'early' age? Ofc if you don't want to reveal your age you don't have to

I think I used to have an account when I was younger, but I started around 10 I think (Then I gave up since all my creatures were dying and started up again)

@wild_wonders - I was actually nine years old when I joined this site and it was very, very obvious. Looking back at old blog comments and forum posts just kills me inside. I always used to forget to go on the site during holidays and stuff so most of my creatures would just die.

I started when I was in 6th grade or so, and now I'm back. Started again last March. I remember selling some of my creatures on auction before I left, those being a Zinzall, Cetopia, and Tokk. I wish I remembered who took them in, but oh well. I came back to about 20 mil EC in my bank because of that.

I originally started my account in Feburary of 2010, when the Tine was released. I was 11 years old I ended up forgetting about Eggcave for a month (r.i.p my Tine) without activating my account, but then I remade it here. I can't believe its been 9 years!

@wild_wonders I think my old account was lalakatie98 or something? xD It's long gone now though. I remember I joined during a CRW thought and thought Wisnakers were ugly and gave them away because I didn't know they were special >_>

I first joined in April 2012, when I was 10 years old. I'm 17 now, so it's been almost 7 years now, which is...wow. Like everybody else, I have my fair share of kinda embarrassing forum posts, and role plays but hey, I was only 10.
I don't really do much here anymore except put my creatures in Tim's when they need it.

Wow that's such a long time for a player who has been active the whole time o.o Have you gotten your dream creatures on here already or..?

@wild_wonders
Yeah, I just realized it's been that long. I never did much in trading, I was mostly here for the forums, so I don't really have any dream creatures. My cove probably not worth much in comparison to some of the users of similar age have.

Yeah, I mostly role played, which was fun, although most of my characters were self-inserts/mary sues.

@wild_wonders

It's an on and off thing for me. I'll have a burst of playing on EGG Cave (like right now) then I'll get bored and come back later.

@wild_wonders Been playing since 15 November 2012 still on my original account! I am 29 years old now. Can't believe it has been 6 years already! I was 23 years old when I created this account. @Chat is still the same original username I signed up with; never did change it. I was in college then. Now I am married, 2 years. No kids, yet. Maybe when I'm 30? Been with this girl for 6 years and married for 2 years how crazy is that?
