    Hi

    Its Jackfh & Gateacre birthday today although the bot has only displayed one of these users. Is this a bug?

    Happy Birthday Jackfh

    It might be that the Birthday Bot (as nice a Bot that he is) respects user privacy settings if users decide to hide their age.

    Its not that. Gateacre has displayed his / her age they are 28 today (happy birthday by the way) and they haven't been announced by the Bot. Jackfh has hidden there age and she / he is announced by the Bot.

    Maybe your right but its just the wrong way round for some reason.

    Yeah you could be right there. The forum does appear to be experiencing more problems in general. I wonder if the latest patch has anything to do with it? I suppose a server reboot might be in order too!?

    The edugeek webserver is running Linux not Windows ;-)

    I agree Linux is more robust serving web applications, but you have to agree there is something as I posted here

    as the vb board was updated a few days ago to the latest version, maybe it has something to do with this.

    I own a few VB sites and have updated this week, i dont use the birthday bot but i know theres been a few lil errors that have occurd on here and the same on my sites.

    I am sure Z will sort this tomorrow

    Wouldn't worry too much, the birthday bot is a pain in the bum anyway!

    Like most things on edugeek some people love it some people hate it.

    This is seen when we changed the site some people hated cluttered feel of the old site some people disliked the new site.
