  • Hey, I saw you changed the Liz Toomes DoB based on the year groups being January 1st-December 31st. Are you sure about that? I'm not saying you're wrong because I'm from the U.K. so I have no first-hand knowledge, and here it is September 1st-August 31st, but the research I did suggested that it varies from state to state, but in New York you start, for example, your senior year in whichever September you are 17 at the beginning of, which would be like the U.K. If it is that the seniors in the September 2016-June 2017 school-year are all 1998 children, that would mean that the oldest people in the year (January 1998) would be 18 when starting the year and 19 when they finish, but the youngest (December 1998) would be 17, turning 18. Which would mean that the year group ranges from 17-19 rather than 17-18, which websites I've checked have said is the age for seniors - the equivalent to a U.K. "Year 13". Just checking, you're probably right but I'd like to understand.


    Also, thanks for enforcing/keeping an eye out for the ages/2016 dates that users have been changing, it's really helpful and nice to see.

    • It's still Jan 1-Dec 31 here. A person born on December 31, 1998 would naturally be a grade higher than a person born on January 1, 1999.

      And thanks! I did do a blunder on Liz's birth year though, but someone fixed it. She's a '99 if she's a senior in September 2016.

      OK cool. So does that mean that Peter's school year are all '01 born?

    • We don't know. Some of them might be early starters; someone added in that Flash was held back and is actually 17.

    • So early starters might be 2002-born and someone who'd been held back might be 2000-born?

      Seems weird that Flash might've been held back also, considering they're all pretty smart to be in that school

    • I know, which is why i think it's not quite correct, whoever made that statement. However, Flash is also seen driving and he would have to be 16 to do so. Which aligns more with the eleventh grade.

    • Just so you know, when I put that warning I wasn't putting a fanon birth date on the Spider-Man article. It was just that on September 27th he is then "16-17" rather than "16", but people kept changing it without reading. Just making sure you don't think I'm putting fanon stuff on
