Happy birthday thread
 
Here's an official thread to wish people a happy birthday.

Anyway, Happy birthday to tocsin!

edit: whoops! I didn't realize that one could hide their age from being revealed. I thought it was a bug of sorts. Sorry about that.

Is a stickied happy birthday thread really necessary? Same with the "introductions" thread. If thread mergers and long-term stickies aren't especially necessary, I think it's better to just avoid them...

Also, happy birthday Tocsin.

Happy birth-day to me four months ago!

the introductions thread is necessary, especially right now because the site is reborn and we are getting a lot of newcomers in and having TotT flooded with "hi! I'm new! I've been browsing Zophar since blah blah blah" threads makes the place look bit messy/cluttered. Having it all in one thread avoids this

As for the birthdays thread... eh, I think it's a good idea, for the same reasons as the intro thread. I will admit though that it isn't as needed as the intro thread, but I'll talk it over with the rest of staff and see what they think.

I disagree also with the birthday hread. I think it makes the place look cluttered!

Xeon3D 07-22-2008 11:51 PM

How can one thread where all birthdays are posted are more cluttered than 1001 threads saying "happy birthday X".

Anyways, +1 vote for letting it be as a sticky.

Goku 07-23-2008 09:30 PM

I do not find it messy because the old birthday threads disapear and are forgotten in the abyss of old threads whereas the sticky is always in your face!

I agree; individual threads are also more personal and organized. It's not unusual for a birthday thread around here to turn into a short conversation about something before dying, whereas in a permanent birthday thread such things will probably interfere with the thread's purpose and become confusing.

Arrrgh, alright, alright I'll talk it over with staff once I get done checking the forum.

Jeez, and I thought it was a good idea too. ;/

I just hope that you guys don't complain about my other future sticky thread ideas >.>

I like the idea of a temporarily stickied introductions thread (because of the sudden changes in the community and site), but agree that the stickied birthday thread is too much.
