I´ve just realised something. The bit with the birthdate being blacked out doesn´t mean much, especially as some of the clever ones amongst us might just look at the list everyday and when the age goes up a year, then it will be blindingly obvious, even to a blind bat, on which day the "blacked out " persons birthday is. ;-)

That is true Paul , but a few people have got a fake date on 31-12-19??
and others have got it on there real date of birth.
This is the only way to make the diagram as reliable as i can get it...

On this moment I update mostly every day, but if I don't get information, I won't update it...
So on that moment the list on the internet is some older, that why I added the date on every page...

The members who don't have he problem with it are in top of the list, in order of month and day.

Must say, it is a lot of work, but fun to see these statistics grow every time

Hey I can't see what the problem is by giving your date of birth? Is that a National secret? :mrgreen:

PS: anyhow I want to wish happy birthday to the members who had their birthday this month: zzed Benno, Alois Nebel and Plasticsoldier :king: :cheers:

@Paul: I was checking it every day :mrgreen: :joker:

Update..

:scratch: When will we reach the 35% filled with birthdates ?

In the list are:
* 293 members (will we get 300 this year?)
- 095 members with age (will we get 100?)
- 209 members with country

As you can see most of our members give there country (69,3%),
and just 32,4% give there date of birth.

So who will give there date?

If you don't want your date in the list, I always can hide it in a black cell..
But for the automatic age counter I need a date...
A few members have emailed me there age, these are in the list as 31-12-19??

In the beginning of the list you see our members sort on date,
after here the are sort on username,
and at the last page you see a diagram, based on the info from our members
(this diagram will be better with every new data in the list)

Hope that I will get a few more reactions of you guys :?

TIP: to be sure you have the latest edition, refresh the list after is opend!

You managed to convince me so the rest shouldn´t be a problem. I don´t see any problem if it´s in a black box. Strange is that people don´t give their country even :scratch:

Well Paul I think some of the members are ghost members. They signed in, but never came back. Just look at the memberslist to see what I mean. That's why I like it when a new member signs in with some comment or even a contribution :thumbup:

Well there you´re wrong. I cancelled mine several times, finally deciding to come out into this cold hard world after I had come up with a decent punch line. What it was, I shall not say here, only I shall admit that it didn´t go down too well at the time as I hadn´t sufficiently enough developed vocal chords and was unable to deliver my line with enough aplomb. I had to wait several years before giving this cracking killer line, but obviously by then the gag had gone flat. This though, was a very good lesson in timing and.......has re.....mained.....with....... me ever.......sin..ce.
