Birthdays
« on: June 08, 2016, 06:53:47 pm »
Afternoon all!

Now a lot of you know who I am, I've not been here a massive amount of time, but I make myself known. I talk to everyone in the chat whether I know who they are or not, and I do the same in Team Speak. I'm very much outspoken, and that's probably why you know me, because I'm loud.

But what about those that aren't so loud, or talkative, and don't go about making themselves known to the community as quickly as I try.

Proposition
What I propose, is simple, a calendar. Displaying everyone in the guild and their Birthday's.

This can be done a number of ways;
  • The player adds his/her own birthday to the Calendar
  • This is added by the forum administrators after an extensive "when is your birthday?" type mail
  • When the player joins up to the forum, they're asked when their Birthday is, and it automatically adds it to the calender

Why add Birthdays you might ask;

As stated in my initial point, I make myself known - now within games, and these guilds some people straight away are known within the majority of the community, and others are not. This goes the same at school, work, social, etc. When Birthdays come around, some people get presents, some people don't, some get "Happy Birthday" - some don't get noticed.

Now I'm not using this as an excuse for more presents on mine February 6th for those that want to know - but using 1 example, one of the already known players has had their present bought and delivered by a friend, as they're known, they get other presents, well wishes and nice greetings. Someone else also has a Birthday that day, they're not known so much, they're over shadowed by the first, don't want to get involved into the community as much as it's something they've previously mentioned but hasn't been remembered nor recognised.

So something simple, like a "Happy Birthday" or a cheap dye / sharpening stone / mini pet makes their day.

Making a calendar, saves the remembering and makes more Birthdays a good day. 'cos we're here to celebrate each other, not put them down!


-----Edit-----

The Birthday Calendar has been added into - http://psdh.eu/index.php?action=calendar

If you don't find your birthday, make sure to add it into your forum profile!

That crap extends right through to twelfth night, yo - by my birthday everyone has alcohol-induced amnesia and can't possibly remember anything is happening ;)

No Ardi just some of us don't need reminding of the inevitable onset of middle age ;)

Aside of that some people, myself included don't like banding personal data all over bits of the Internet where it's not a necessity. Like those silly things on facebook "what's you porn star name - take your first initial, date of birth, bank account number and national insurance number to find yours NOW!"
