We like to think of Elysian Fields as a community, and part of being a community is celebrating together. We already celebrate great stories and reviews, but now we can help each other celebrate birthdays as well! Based on a suggestion by RESPICE FINEM, you now have the ability to choose to share your special day with others at EF. If you head over to your preferences, in the site settings section, there's now a space for you to enter your birthdate. If you enter the date there (yyyy-mm-dd format), on your birthday you'll get a special note in the site info section of the main page, which will look like this:

Your birthday will be shared based on site time (currently GMT-4), not your local time because it's stubborn like that. Remember, this is completely optional. If you'd prefer not to share your birthday, just leave the space in your preferences blank.

Cute! I hope lots of people share their birthdays so we can party it up EF style!

Love the new addition! heartheartheartQuestion though can you chose not to include the year of birth, not many people(like myself) like other people to know about how old they are. thinking

Love this and already put mine in.  Thank you Susan.

The year is just there because that's how the database is set up to store dates. The year you enter or your specific age won't be shown anywhere on EF.

Yehey! I love the idea even more! Great job, Susan and thanks for suggesting this Respice Finem!squee
