When you find someone 150 years or older that wants to sign up Alan, we'll be sure to accept them. Wink

Probably the forum hosts, more than likely as a data 'captcha' for those that don't enter a year.

Don't think they're really "rules", just a way to catch invalid year entries. They could have perhaps phrased it better by exclaiming an invalid year error message rather than an apparent ageist thing I suppose.

Then again 'ageism' is one of the lesser enforced discriminations than any other.


By the way, Happy Birthday for tomorrow. Is this discrimination  1f44d

Love it Alan. If you do get kicked out next year I am sure Victor will get you back in. Many happy returns, hope you enjoy your day. If you're playing radio then hope the skip gods are watching over you today.

A very happy 'just another day' Alan. Is this discrimination  1f37a  Is this discrimination  1f382 and may the radio waves go well for you.

If 150 years old is max, I only have another 75 to go! Sad As Victor put it......

The forum software I have used for 15+ years also has a similar rule of year of birth being compulsary, so for CTDX it is almost certainly phpBB that has it in the software.
