On a couple of forums I used years ago, on the main page and underneath all the sub forums was a little section which showed what users birthdays it was on that day.
Might something like that be possible to implement here? Obviously it would only be for people who wish to show their birthdays.
Reason I ask is that the other day there was a birthday thread for someone but it turned out to be 2 or 3 other people’s birthdays on that way too. Just ensures everyone gets a thread if they wish to have one
