    I have a modification that can post a birthday thread every day for users that have a birthday. It posts a single thread wishing all of the birthday users a happy birthday at the same time. This will limit the amount of birthday threads we have and will also eliminate us forgetting anyones birthday.

    If you all want to keep doing it the way we always have, thats cool too. I came across this little script and thought I would toss it out there.

    It's broken - you would have to look at the calendar right now.

    Yeah, I was going to bring that up when it was my bday, but I saw that Rich remembered it. I was like hmm odd. Where did they go, then I saw shells message on yahoo about her bday and was like did we forget hers too.

    Its still at the bottom of the forums page. The module i created for the birthdays broke with the upgrade. I just need to rewrite a small section in the PHP file that feeds it and it will return. I will try to have that back tomorrow.

    Hmmm I had responded to this earlier but apparently the post got eaten!
    So here I go again!
    The only drawback to it I see is that we will be posting birthday greetings to people who have not been on the site in months or years.

    Personally I think the individual birthday greetings are more,... well, personal. It is aimed specifically at one member and not just a blanket wish. And its not like there are that many birthdays on any given day

    I know it would mean more to me to have several posts responding to a Happy Birthday Merlin than to have a bunch of posts simply responding to a Happy Birthday Rich, Dominick, Marsha, Shelly, Ken and,.. and,... and and.
    Thats my 2 cents.;)

    Yeah, I agree with Merlin... Is there any way to get the script to do individual threads? And maybe get it to only do the ones for people that have signed in in the last 6 months?

    what about people that join on their bday? What about after the post is made will it add more?

    I've been in lazy mode for a while. It's probably the winter depression thing.
    But I like the auto feature. I do think it loses the "personal touch" though as well.

    It currently shows users who have been online over the past 4 months. I set that up already. Removing the code for the age is simple enough as well.

    I guess we should put this up to a formal vote since we have some opposing views.

    Lets all enter our vote and we can go from there.

    I am for it.

    I prefer the individual wishes.

    It will probably also save space since you only have 1 thread vs 4 diff bday threads. It still has the personal touch since everyone is posting.


    FOR IT!
