    Is there any way that I can show my age in my profile without showing my birthday? I think my age could be relevant at times, but I like it better when my birthday isn't even noticed.

    That was definitely possible on the old platform. @Dillon, is this possible on XF?

    Hi @smee,

    At present the only option, which you've discovered, is to disable your birthday display, which in turn also disables the age display.

    Our forum software takes this approach because it provides the most privacy. However we can easily craft an alternative solution. I will confer with the admins about the best approach and follow up.

    This is something the admins are currently discussing, and it's likely we'll do some sort of modification. It may take a while to implement, but we're discussing the specifics now.

    If it's doable, what if the settings were altered so only your followers/people you follow can see your full birthday (if you want them to; it can be a setting you can turn on or off), but the rest of the EC members and guests can only see your age?

    If not, I'd be fine with just only showing age in profile for everybody

    We're exploring this as a possibility. No promises, but interesting enough to look into. :slight_smile:
