Default Calendar

If you click on Calendar it takes you to a place that has a "default calendar". Can someone tell me what this is and how it is used?

For many other forum sites they might add events that would be of interest to the group. I guess we could ad events like Tax days, quarterly tax payments for us who are self employed, or any other event that would be fitting for us to have on a shared calendar. Right now it shows the upcoming month and the users who have birthdays. For our site maybe that link should just be taken off?

Thanks Andy. I have no problem with keeping it. After being on this forum for a few years, this is the first time that I noticed it.

I like the idea of Tax deadlines on there. Very relevant for us old DIY financial geezers with bad memories

I mark my calendars at the start of the year, but a backup is always good thing.

Silly me, I thought it was the date that Uncle Sam defaults on the debt.

So how come the calendar shows other people's birthdays but not mine?
Is it a some kind of conspiracy? Because it is December 22nd, and I better be seeing a cake, by gawd!

Uh...maybe because you didn't put your date of birth in your profile?

You're very welcome.

By any chance did you choose "Hide age and date of birth" in your user profile?

Nope, it says the default choice, "display age" (and not carbon dating like REW has to use to display his age, but in actual years).

Ahem... If you chose the "Display Only Age" option, that's all it will display - not your birthday.

Darn, so it isn't a conspiracy? Rats.

edit: Hey, look at that, it works! Huh, that REW fellow must have some smarts that the Texas heat didn't boil clean out of his head!

Thanks, I am still a moron, good to know....

Well, while you guys are busy discussing birthdays I'm over here on a rampage that may or may not be warranted
