Better date selector for birthday


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

We can do better than this dual action drop-down:

27

A standard calendar drop-down should do the trick here, no? I don’t know why we refrain from asking for birth year, but I guess it’s often unnecessary.

I imagine that some forums might want year, others not.

Perhaps make the year optional in /settings?

DOB_Format:

possibilities
DD/MMM/YYYY
DD/MMM
MMM/DD/YYYY
MMM/DD

I’m not a fan of clicking through calendars.

We simply don’t need the year of birth right now and IMHO it’s a lot easier to select month and day from dropdowns instead of selecting your birthdate in a calendar. Finding the right year requires a lot more clicks and doesn’t provided any added value.
