    I am aware that a new feature (?) is installed. Something that OUGHT to tell us who's birthday is today. However, it seems that this doesn't work. Just faulty or doesn't know anything?

    It showed DE's birthday a while back, likely the reason why it didn't show ytzk's is because he didn't put that information in his profile - unless he did?

    Or is this a roundabout way of telling us it's your birthday Arthgon?

    My birthday? That's already been awhile ago. So, no.

    The feature appears to work just fine. What makes you say it doesn't?

    DE's birthday never appeared as listed as today's birthday on my screen et al. There's always the possibility that I overlooked it. You have to write it down in your profile?

    Yes, one has to enter his birthday date here in his profile if he wants to be mentioned on the index page when that day comes.

    I had no problems with seeing it, as far as I remember.

    I have set a fake birthday for today. Is it visible to you at the bottom of the index page?

    Note that you have to be logged in to see it.

    If I dare say, you look good for 100. Your green skin is barely cracked at all.

    Deleting my facebook profile 3-4 years ago was one of the smartest things I ever did.

    Not wanting to create another thread, so I will ask it here:

    Is there a way to keep on disabling the signature in ALL the posts than having to disable it in each post?

    Couldn't you just, you know, delete your signature?

    Arthgon, go to your profile, and hit the Board Preferences button. Then select Edit Posting Defaults, and hit the "no" button next to the "Show Signature by default" selection.

    A very good job of disabling it you did too.
