Apparently I have to post to gain experience or whatever, so let's discuss. I feel like a lot of the people on this website are really young, and I wanted to confirm that I am not the only one above 20 years old.

I didn't create a poll because I noticed that polls completely kill discussions as no one ever replies, they just vote.

I'd like to meet some people my age, feel less alone, make some friends if possible. Why are you here? What do you think about this community?

We have dozens of players in the 20-30 range and a dozen solid players around 40 years old who hold down the community and provide a nice range of discussion, in-game help and humor.

My old server used to consist of largely an adult player base. I myself am in my early 30s and I had many regular players in their 40s.

I also know of an adult themed BDSM fetish server which does very well. Minecraft is certainly not just for kids!

Come to think of it, age doesn't really matter when it comes to video games.

hmm, this is interesting. But does age really matter?

It does, because age usually correlates with the level of decency, maturity and so on.
Also being of the same age as someone else probaly makes it easier to find things you have in common, shared views and interests.

I know how you feel, constantly looking for servers or videos etc. that are targeted towards older players.
I'm 20 years old and I constantly find myself coming back to play the same game I first played when I was 11 years old.
One of my favourite youtubers, General Sam, made a good point in a recent video, he said "with all the kids playing fortnite and apex now, there's not as many playing minecraft anymore" so that's another reason why I've really started to come back into Minecraft and the PMC community.
There is a huge amount of adults coming back to the game and it makes playing the game a lot more enjoyable, and I don't feel as embarrassed to play minecraft anymore because so many people my age are starting to come back.

Level 13 : Journeyman Dragonborn
I'm 25, and have been hosting the same server for nearly a year and a half now.

I'd say about 50% of our community is over 20, some over 40.

The above URL is the 1.13 info, the thread has been updated as well as the server, for Vanilla 1.14. No white list at the moment.

If you're interested, I do allow Ages 16+, so far they have all been very mature.

I'm over twenty and would appreciate meeting some new people too. I like the Minecraft community because it caters towards creativity in many forms.

I think a lot are these days. But people who have had the game a while or who have been on this site for a while tend to be older I bet.

Nope, you're not the only one. Above 30 years old right here.

By the way, my cousin Greg has a wall entry dog door for sale. If anyone's interested, feel free to PM me.

I'm 26, been playing since I was 19. As much as I enjoy talking to fellow crafters, it's always a little weird not knowing if they've graduated high school yet. I don't have a lot to say to a stranger anyways, it takes some time for me to warm up to a conversation if I can't make jokes, cuss, etc. The group chat, like twitch, is just too general and a mess most of the time.

So far I haven't really met anybody here either. My family insists on playing the Xbox edition while I am a steadfast Java player so I figured I'd look for some people who already play the right way lol. I played on a server for a bit but couldn't get into it, I like turning mobs off and not being in constant peril.

Check out my map if you have a second, it's here:

be sure to do it on peaceful though, or take a tour first and raid my chests for gear.

I'm 21, and I think Planet Minecraft is a great platform to hang out on. I've been on Facebook, DeviantArt, various forums and communities but I found none of those to be nicer than the community here on PMC. ^_^

What I love about this site is that above anything else, it's about creating. From my experience younger members bring positivity to the site through their enthusiasm and creativity. And, some kids are more mature than some adults. I oftentimes get surprised learning someone's age on here.

Being my age I don't feel out-of-place at all. Not just because there are plenty of members who are the same age or older, but also because those who are younger generally are nice kids. 😊 + Good moderation on the site surely helps with that too.

I'm here because I enjoy hosting contests and events, to come up with a theme or concept and see what other people make of that. \o/ + I also enjoy creating skins, writing, the occasional build, and sharing what I know about all of that in tutorials to help people with their own creations. 😅

I'm 20 myself. I personally like that Minecraft appeals to a wide age-range, so I just accept any forum environment to be the same.

Plus PMC is just honestly my favourite, community wise.

Though I may not be above 20 y/o, There's a lot of members signed up to this site. I'm entirely positive there's plenty of other people who are older than 20 y/o.

I'm 23 and have been playing Minecraft since the age of 16. I think I'm the only one of my friends who plays it though, but it doesn't bother me one bit since I can be creating what I want without covering the front room carpet in A4 sheets of paper haha

I just started a new world for 1.14. Check it out if you are looking for some others to play with. My friend and I are in our 20s, and have a few other players at different ages. Building kind of a hermitcraft style server, with a custom datapack.

Well, most of the people who have replied right here are mostly teens and adults.

Overall, you aren't alone. Not at all.

I actually found a lot of cool profiles here on Planet Minecraft, and again, most of them are either teens or even adults. I'm not even 20 yet! Like DinowCookie said, I also believe Planet Minecraft would be a great platform to hang out on overall. Why not stick around here? You won't regret it.

Haha think again, I'm double 20 then add 3. Although technically I'm only 6, 7 in May as I'm Guardian to my Son as this is his Minecraft Character. So if you consider us one entity then we're 50.

My wife and I both play, at 24 and 26 respectively. Honestly I mainly use this website to post projects I've built that I'm proud of; it's nice to be able to show them off. The community is also good for inspiration, so that's a plus.

Over 20 as well. Sometimes, I don't know why I am here. When I have time I create Redstone things. I also used to run servers, which are down at this moment, they have been running since december last year and are in need of some work to get everything refreshed. Overall I think this community of Minecrafters and skinmaker persons is okay enough, but be aware of the teenage cringe! :P

Yeah I caught a 15 year old girl verbally abusing another player in chat here last night, I quickly intervened and after they spouted about their freedom of speech, I informed then that freedom of speech doesn't mean you have the freedom to abuse someone.

good choice of forum topic :) and reasons for not polling

I'm 35, and gave been playing minecraft for probably 2 years. Recently, I started trying mods, and had lots of questions about it. Now I'm working on creating content, and have lots of questions. So I appreciate having a place to share ups/downs and spark creativity
