So your age doesn't update automatically on your profile then?

Surely there is a way of doing that? I'm on another forum where you just enter your DoB and your age is displayed automatically and updated when you have a birthday.

Don't get me wrong, I'd like to stay 37 for ever, but... it feels kind of dishonest!!

UnquietDad Thu 06-Sep-07 11:45:31

Thanks, but it was a while back! I've just got round to updating my age.

fryalot Thu 06-Sep-07 11:47:01

I'll keep my cake to myself then wink

fryalot Thu 06-Sep-07 11:47:34

UnquietDad Thu 06-Sep-07 11:52:16

No, I was 38 back in June. I've only just got round to asking the question!

phdlife Thu 06-Sep-07 11:53:06

fryalot Thu 06-Sep-07 11:59:34

No we don't ask for DoB. Whatever you put in that fields gets displayed as is. Some people would rather put "somewhere around 40" and so on rather than a bare number. We did think about auto-update but decided against - one should never ask a lady her age (or summink - must find that nancy mitford book).

Can it go back a year on each birthday? I would like that!

UnquietDad Thu 06-Sep-07 13:54:02

Thanks for the clarification, tech!

phdlife Thu 06-Sep-07 20:02:09
