Birthday Icon

just do it bob1

I just came up with this idea, and I thought it would be pretty cool.  

The admins and mods probably can't implement this, but it's worth a shot anyways.

For those who use Snapchat, you are probably familiar with the icons/emojis 🎂🎉 that appear when it is someones birthday. 

I thought it would be pretty cool to do the same thing on the forums when someones birthday comes around. I feel that many of the members "special day" is not acknowledged much on the forum, and it might encourage people (when responding or quoting something they said) to add a "happy birthday" at the end of the post. 


In terms of incorporating this, I would picture it as putting maybe a birthday cake in the users username for that given day, and it would change back after that day ends? 


I'm almost 100% certain that this wont be ever implemented, but I thought I may as well suggest it anyways.



I am aware that some people may just change their birthday every day on this forum to get an emoji beside their name. But really, if something like this was implemented, most would single out who's birthday was actually legitimate and who's birthday is not. 

I also understand that you could just change your member title to "it's my birthday today" or something along those lines, but I think a feature like this would be much more cool and interesting.

The old versions of IPB used to have something like this, it was flashy back then, nowadays not so much I guess. Unfortunately I don't think it's something that is even on the list to implement, there's still stuff to tune in the background, not to mention we're using a fully supported constantly updated version, which means any customisations made might just break things even more as the forum is updated.
