Suggestion: Birthday - Tool

Postby Lady Ryu » Mon Oct 24, 2005 12:43 pm

i've seen here various thread with congratulations for birthdays so i tought it would be nice to have a Birthday-Tool like other forums. :idea:

on the end of the mainpage would be written all members who have their birthday this day.
of course it shouldn't be a must to write down his/her birthday.

Hi Lady Ryu,

I know ..... a bit of water has gone under the bridge now, but I did see this a few days ago.

As far as I know, phpBB does not support displaying peoples birthdays. But it may be possible to add one on.

I don't mind researching this, but first I'd like to know how many would be interested. To this end, I'm adding a poll to this and see what comes of it!

I'm also comfortable with the idea, just because I belong to several other forums with this kind of a function! Thanks for bringing the idea into daylight!

Hey Lady Ryu,

this is a great idea. :D In the forum on Enya's website there's a "Birthday Tool" and it's nice to know when somebody has his birthday (for congratulations, if you have friendship with somebody).

Support for this is fairly positive :) so I think it's worth researching it and see what I can come up with :D

Two riders though:
  • With Christmas approaching I've got a lot of 'out-of-the-ordinary' things on and coming up, so this will prolly have to wait until the New Year now.
  • I can't (and won't!) promise anything .... I always say that in case there is something that prevents me from being able to do it. I'm one of these people who would rather not say "I will do it" then find for some reason that I can't as this creates a lot of disappointment.

But as they say .... watch this space!

I wouldn't mind if a birthday tool was added. I also wouldn't feel bad if it isn't implemented because of technical limitation. However, I voted for a "yes."

I can't say it bothers me having my birthday on here, but those people who know me well enough already know my birthday and they'll send me an e-card (at least i'd hope they would) :P

I think it is a good idea, as I don't know the birthdays of many people here and it would be nice to send them congrats. :wink:
I felt so happy, seing my name in a birthdaytopic, that I would like to see other people as happy as me. :mrgreen:

I've collected a few innovative thoughts on how to do this, so it's a case of getting the time to look at implementing this early in the New Year now I think.

Thanks for all the positive feedback ... further comments, voting, etc. are still welcome though!
