Using the data scraped for Feedback Friends, I just ran a little query to answer some questions like “Who are the oldest LD36 submitters?” or “I am older than the average submitter?”.

Note: by “old” I mean “who subscribed for the longest time”, which is easy enough to figure out by looking at UIDs, those incremental, public numbers assigned to each account. You can check your own UID by looking at the URL of your game.

For instance, the elder of LD36 is Jovoc (UID 34), who apparently was here since the very first Ludum Dare, and still takes part regularly! Here’s the top 10:

+------+------+--------+-------------------------------+

You can use this list to find your own name and figure out where you rank in terms of seniority 😉 I for instance am among the 7% oldest members who took part in the event, my first event being LD24 [/bragging]. Also:

  • The median user is from LD33
  • At least 1/4 of the users are new accounts who never took part in an event before, LD or MiniLD
  • As shown by Tijn’s work on past events, the turnover is especially big for the Jam category, which can be explained (in part) by the fact that teams come and go with each event, often requiring people to create new accounts.

    I’m row 42! Not so young, and far from what I could imagine. Thanks for this leaderboard!
