Birthdays

Where are they? I've not seen any for weeks. I find it difficult to believe there are no folks with one lately.

No automatic cake icons have ever appeared on this version of the forum. You have to look at the bottom of the main forum index page to see birthdays. Or have SOS friends on Facebook which might tell you birthdays if people haven't opted to share DOB on their forum info.

You're right. I'm sure they were there about a week ago.

Just to be sure, I've been checking every time I log in. Narry a burpday in sight. What's happening? First we lose the animated gifs, then it's the birthday cake, now it's birthday list. What will disappear next? :cry: :?

Maybe its because to Forum software knows we're mostly old and couldn't care less about birthdays anymore?
If so, that was a good upgrade! ;)

Possibly a GDPR requirement?

Though Facebook still shows them.

Doubtful. In your account settings you have the choice over whether you want them reported or not - simply by whether you give a birthday entry.
