    Default Birthday not displaying

    Hey so this is a tiny thing, I know, but this is the second year in a row that my birthday is not displaying in “today’s birthdays” in a row. As far as I’m aware, I didn’t change any of the settings in my profile that would cause such a change to make sense. Is there something you can do about it?

    Can you check your privacy on your birthday?

    Settings > Edit Profile > there is an option here somewhere


    Also happy birthday!

    I have a theory.

    The calendar used to display everyone's birthdays. So you'd get a long list of randos and bots with the odd regular sometimes mixed in. January 1 was always a fun time.

    And then it changed to only show certain members. Notable members. Random oldbies. My feeling is that it is a list that was curated by none other than Loony BoB, and when he created it you were not prominent enough to be on the list.

    I have no idea where the list is stored or how to change it. Sorry.

    Of course, I could be talking utter bollocks as BoB has never talked about the list or its existence.

    In lieu of this, please accept this holiday on the calendar instead with my apologies.

    I did discover a way to make the calendar no longer finish in 2017 so that's something.

    Honestly? This is exactly what I expected and it makes me sad

    But thanks a lot for the holiday. I appreciate it. It's a nice gift.
