This is about you.
Over 11,000 individuals of the 30,000 to 23 million daily readers of Cryptomundo have registered at the site. All 11,000 registrants can leave comments.
During the recent challenge to post a comment about yourself on the posting entitled, variously, “Who Are You?,” a total of 340 of you left enough information for us to gather a profile of the typical reader. In terms of research surveys, this is a significant number and while we can’t say we know the entire silent majority, your comments give all of us a good idea of you.
Thanks to Tabitca who assisted greatly in assembling this database, from the broad population responses to be analyzed.
Cryptomundo Survey of 340 Posters

Based on this sample, the average Cryptomundo poster (versus reader) who responded to this survey is male, aged 26-40 years of age, lives in the USA and is semi-professional.
If you feel under-represented because you didn’t speak up, it’s never too late.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
