How come some of you are not "forced" to enter your date of birth when you set up your user profile like I was? The system wouldn't let me update my profile without date of birth, said it was mandatory, yet several of you have profiles that clearly don't list your age when I look you up. What gives?<p>Also, the "I agree to behave" document you read when you register has a line in there about agreeing to behave here in "Pickuptruck.com". Perhaps that verbiage could be changed to read "Swedespeed" for folks registering at Swedespeed? <BR><BR>

Nice one. I totally missed pickuptruck. That means it says that on VWvortex also as I took the Vortex document and substituted VWvortex out for Swedespeed.<p>Lisa, I'll go in and change the mandatory setting now. Probably what happened is that they haven't updated their profile since we made the change.

Regarding the age thing, OH, okay. That makes sense. Not that I care all that much, it's just that some people don't like admitting their age, be it young or old. It's just something I noticed, you know...

Yeah, that was one of the default settings on Zero Forum. I just hadn't changed it.

Re: Question About Profile Set-Up, and A Minor Suggestion (Lisa62)

As George mentioned, it's because we haven't changed our profile since the switch to ZeroForum. I tried to change mine, but it said "You must provide a secret question and answer." so I just left it the same. I'm sure if I'd done that, it would have told me I needed a birthdate (today! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> ), and so on until I met all the requirements.

No way, TODAY?! Well happy birthday to you! If I knew how to add in little musical notes or a birthday song tune or something fancy-schmancy like that, I would... but I don't! Here...have a beer... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> And have a GREAT birthday! (Today's my dad's birthday, by the way...small world...) Well, statistically, I guess 1 in every 365 people you meet is going to have the same birthday as you, right?! Anyhooo...back to the point.<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/star.gif" BORDER="0"> H A P P Y . B I R T H D A Y . T O .

<BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR>...BTW, age is no longer necessary.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><br>Well, you're correct...at least partially. It is no longer necessary to enter an age before you click "Save". It now <I>lets</I>you click save, but somehow the blank screens (lack of DOB) make it freak out and it reverts back to the date that was in there previously! I tired once yesteday, and again just now. Not workin for me... Am I doing something improperly? I put the Month & Day to ----, and delete out the four-digit year, then I click on save. But nothing "saves"...it goes back to how my profile was before. Huh?! I'm corn-fused...<BR><BR>

Thanks, thanks, and thanks!<p>I know of only 2 famous people born on October 3rd. One is former major league baseball player Dennis Eckersley, who was a pitcher for several teams, including the Oakland Atheltics in the 90's when they won a couple of World Series. He was one of my favorite players which is the only reason I came to know that he shared the same b-day as me.<p>The other is one of my favorite musicians AND one of the greatest guitar players ever, Stevie Ray Vaughn. He would have been just 48 years old yesterday, if he were still alive.

Just take them out of your mouth and dip them in a glass of water, a couple of times will do...How do I know? I was in a cafeteria, somewhere in Austria, once and I saw a very old lady do it.

Back when Clinton was campaigning against Dole, a reporter who'd listened to a Clinton interview the night before asked the Republican, "Senator Dole, do you where boxers or briefs?"<p>The senior senator shrugged and replied, "Depends."<p>No it's not true, but it makes for a funny joke. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> No political leanings meant or implied. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0">
