In the users profile input screen is the following instruction:
"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."
What's up with the last sentence?
Is it in case someone never entered their birthdate, entered it incorrectly, or do we have reincarnated users?
:unsure:
Thanks,
dp :-)

Naturally, the "change" refers to an incorrectly entered date at the time of registration.

We are yet to receive a message from a freshly-reincarnated user, but I'll happy update our members (and the BBC) if something so extraordinary transpires.

:lol: The wording is awkward, but I can only assume it's there for people who incorrectly entered their birth dates.

The default setting for Vbulletin (our forum software) is to require a birthdate upon registration. Once you're registered, you cannot change it, unless you contact an administrator.
