I clicked "Clear Birthday" then "Save Changes" and I got a message saying I have entered an invalid birthday. Please change this so I don't have to enter fake birthdays to get the system to accept my existence. Thank you.

yea, and you can't enter a birthday without a year either. I think you can enter your birthday but hide it, though.

It used to not need a birthday...and then it used to accept a birthday without a year...now it requires all of them. Next up, credit card numbers. :)

I'm pretty sure vB has asked for a birthday, or at least the birthyear since version 2, since it's required for COPPA, whereas now you are required to input a birthday and not click on "born before 'some date here 13 years ago'" or "born after 'same date as before'".

Under "Edit Profile" you can hide your DoB and age.

It's been like that ever since they added the semi-public porn forum.

Someone asked about this earlier. If you have any real problem with your birthyear being seen but not your birthday, just put in the correct day and month and make the year something obviously untrue.

Why would someone have a problem with letting people know their age?

That was me. I jokingly put my age at 85 years old, but I think I'll just keep it (as if I had a choice)

600 AD can't be represented by a unix timestamp. It's far too long before the Epoch.

Well, I suppose I can pretend to be someone I'm not around here a little longer.

March 14, 1971, it is.

edit: Oh my, it looks like I can't even change it at will. How preposterous.

December 15, 1971, it is.

happy birthday, then.A little belated, but thanks. And I'm older than RSL now. Ha.


What problems are you getting when trying to change it?Won't let me change it. Says to contact an administrator.
Date of Birth - December 15, 1971
Your date of birth and age are displayed in several places on the forum. Only the administrator will have access to your date of birth should you choose to hide it via the privacy option below.
Please contact the Administrator if your date of birth has changed.

edit: It's even weirder, then, that I was able to change it before.

At first I couldn't figure out how to beat the Time Devourer.

I thought you just couldn't change the year.

I've been 100 since I joined. I change my birthyear every year.
