    I'm sure we can find out when your birthday is Flugalgal ;-) :p and then announce it in a separate thread.... just for you... in big letters and a huge number or 3 :-D

    Happy Birthday Gaz

    Yeah happy birthday Gaz! :)

    Don't think Gaz'll mind people knowing he's 24 (he's still a young spring chicken!) but I suspect some people might get a little offended that everyone gets told their age!!

    It is up to each user whether he or she makes this information available to everyone. From the User Control Panel:

    "If you enter your birth date using the controls provided here, other forum visitors will be able to see your birthday on the forum calendar and in your profile. Adding your year of birth is optional."

    So I don't see there being a problem! :cool:

    Unless someone "spills the beans"... as it were ;-)

    *makes a note to try and find every bean that's anywhere near Naomi so that she has none to spill...*

    Stephen... you enter the details about your birth date in your User Control Panel. Just enter it in there, and when it is your birthday, you will receive a greeting and will be displayed in the list.

    HelenV: There's no problem here re annoying anyone, as the choice to the brithday being divulged is entirely up to to the individual - nobody else can do this.

    Yep, it seems you were right.
    I had expected there would be something like "Todays birthdays: none" or just some empty space on the portal-page. But instead, all references to the birthdays disappeared...
