Another unannounced LJ-change [Jul. 14th, 2006|07:55 pm]
Good news: With so many people adding years to their birthdays to bump up LJ's statistics, LJ has now added an option to display only month and day of your birthday without the year (even if you have entered the year).

Bad news: In so doing, they changed everyone's preferences to not display the birthday at all, even if you previously chose to display it.

Go to http://www.livejournal.com/manage/profile/ to set the option the way you want it.

Eep. Thanks for the heads up - I prefer to display mine, year and all, and hadn't noticed it had vanished.

How odd -- mine has vanished and I haven't done anything to it. It's still displaying just like always.

Thanks for the heads up! I hadn't even noticed that it was missing.

Thanks for the heads-up. Moreover, I noticed that they introduced a bug: If you enter only the month and day, and tell it to only display the month and day, it will only display the day (with a hyphen before it). If you enter the year, it will display correctly.
