BIRTHDAY MANIFEST RULES OF PARLEY

Travel Forums Off Topic BIRTHDAY MANIFEST RULES OF PARLEY

Okay, so they are more guidelines than actual rules...

But, they haven't been covered in awhile so I guessing, with some of the new kids in town, they should be brought to everyone's attention (or as a reminder - however you choose to look at it), once again. This thread will only be stickied for a short period of time so if you're interested - read it. It will disappear.

The Guidelines are simple:

  • I may have magical powers but they do not allow me access to the "personal information" database. When Moderators view a profile, they see what everyone else sees - that does not include actual dates of birth - only how old you are right that very minute.
  • Those wishing to be included on the Birthday Manifest, please me contact via PM with your month and day. We don't care about the year because most of us can do the math. (It's 2009 - we know how to do subtraction.)
  • If you wish to be recognized more than once, stay active on the site. Preferrably, post in Off Topic at least once a year. (Main reason, chances are you'll come back just to see what I've written about you 12 months down the road.) I do check everyone's profile to see their last forum post. Do me a favor - follow the sort of next guideline... Okay, the one below the next one...
  • Those who have not posted in the 12-13 month period following their last birthday thread are put on "hiatus". If you are traveling and haven't posted, your name is not removed - just put on hold until you return.
  • Again, posting in Off Topic, or contacting me directly about your return, lets me know you're back and willing to still be on the manifest.
  • I am not responsible for belated threads. I do the best I can. I am aging and losing my sight. I'm also deaf so comments will fall on deaf ears. I heard that! No laughing from the peanut gallery!

Okay - that pretty much covers it and I now need to leave.

Uh-uh!! Pete, your sister's hairdresser's husband's cousin's best-friend's brother's car-mechanic's dog-groomer's second-cousin-half-removed's birthday isn't until September.

Damnit, G !! As you know, the first rule of threadjacking states clearly that:

The party of the first part, in the case of the fifth part, acting with the consent, in written form, on the behave of the first part, as stated in paragraph 45.0.2.4.2 sub-paragraph A, if one is dared to jack a thread, it takes all the fun out of !

Pffftttt....to you ! And your better half !
