Why do I have the cake next to my name?


(Quenten) #1

I just checked a comment, and I noticed there is a cake

Any idea ?

That would be do to this plugin: Cakeday! Celebrating birthdays and anniversaries.

In brief, it is either your birthday or the anniversary for when you signed up on Meta.

You bring up a good point though. It’s a bit odd that we don’t inform users whatsoever about what this thing actually means. It doesn’t even have hover text.

One suggestion: Make it clickable, and clicking it will open your user card. User card should say:

“Happy birthday!” or
"Happy Meta anniversary!"

under the username.

No hover text is particularly egregious @tgxworld

Hmm I thought I had this fixed long ago.

Will check if something regressed here.

Fixed the regression for missing emoji title and alt attributes

Add title attribute for poster icons in
