Hi Guys,

Just a heads up, that the default setting in the profile page is to display the members birth-date. It was easy enough to change, but there is no notice provided that birth-date would be displayed, and I know this would bother a lot of people in terms of privacy.

So I think you should either alert users during the sign up process or set the default to not display birth date.

Yeah, I changed mine but I definitely think the default should be changed, at least to exclude year.

Ah yes. I've just changed it now so the default for new users from now on will be to display neither year or date of birth.
