    Birfdays

    Just curious.. I've got my profile settings set so that nothing about my birthday is visible to users.

    I notice that near the bottom of the page that lists all the forums, there is a section for "today's birthdays".

    If I have my birthday hidden from view, will my name still appear in that section on my birthday??

    ^_^

    If you set it to hide your date of birth, then I'm pretty sure it won't appear in the birthday section. Indeed, unless your birthday is fairly soon, I think it will cease to be an issue. The forums are moving to Discourse soon, and I don't think it has that feature (although I could be wrong there ).
    Don't serve your porridge and then go out for a walk.

    TechnoBear is correct though, if you have it hidden, it won't show up there. I have mine set the same way and it never showed

    I've always been away on my birthday, so I don't know if mine shows up - and we'll have moved to Discourse before my birthday this year, so I'll never know.

    Nope.
    Only I'll know when it is and I promise not to tell.
