And birthdate I believe is optional in the profile (if not Paul 3rd suggestion of the day and man it's only 6:40 AM LOL ) so they can chose not to have their birthday listed. Now Paul maybe another option might be to allow them to set the month and day but not year for those not wanting to publish exactly how old they are and make sure to mark in the profile area that year is optional!!!
Being politics moderator though I actually find it helpful to gage the experiance of those I am discussing with not that age is a true measure but gives me an idea how much political nightmares they've been through
Just wait until after Thanksgiving OK, that'll give me a year to get used to the idea, or manipulate the year. Not that anyone would do that.
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. - Frederick Buechner
If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles, how can it be called progress?
Hey I didn?t think of removing the age. I could make a few changes so just the name of the person shows. It is kinda nice to know the age of the birthday person ? maybe in the forum leave the age down below on the stats, but on the frontpage just have the fact it is the members birthday?
I think it's a great Idea to have birthdays on the front page, it give us a chance to wish those whos special day it is best wishes and such. you might also consider putting in Anniversary date for Marriages, the day they Joined this site etc.. I am a firm believer that every one is a very special person in thier own way and should always feel that way. Blessed Be, Angel
