    Default The "Happy Birthday" thread.

    I've seen some individual threads started to wish forum members a happy birthday. That's a very nice thought, but perhaps we can have just one thread and post our happy birthday wishes to individual members from here.

    Okay, it seems this isn't a favored idea, and I have no idea how to delete it.

    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute. Then Pete got him to autograph my sign for me because I was too polite to ask myself since he was on his way to eat. Pete also took this of photo of him holding it. - 8/2/2014.

    People are willing to deal with the threat of clutter if it means getting individual attention on their birthday.
    When they said "sit down", I stood up.

    They can get individual attention. People will be listing their names here. I've done this before, it works out well. It will end up looking like a whole bunch of birthday threads, one after the other.

    Okay, can we please keep this thread for birthday wishes? If the admins don't think it's a good idea, leave it to them to get rid of it.

    It never resulted in too much clutter before so I don't see why it would now.

    Couldn't that exact same point be made about the individual birthday threads? No offense meant, but under your own logic if it had been a problem the admins would have done something about it already.

    Yeah, I never said they should be deleted or that they were a bad idea. I just think that this is a better one. It worked out very nicely on another forum I used to be part of.

    whats wrong with having a Bday thread. I have seen it on other forums. You guys are way too uptight.

    A few years ago, all the regulars made each other birthday threads. There was almost always at least one birthday thread on the first page, and they often got pretty fun. Now there are two birthday threads, and it's been months if not over a year since the last one... they were never a problem years ago when they were common, and with how little activity there is around here these days, birthday threads are definitely not causing clutter. If this was a really busy board, I could understanding having a birthday thread, though.
