    This is odd, but it's on my mind so I thought I'd post it.

    Looks like vBul is farting up when it comes to grouping the birthday's together.

    Take today's list for example:

    (color emphasis mine)

    Now notice how all of the 70 year olds are grouped together (in Red)?

    Why aren't the 25 and 21 year olds (indicated in Green) grouped together?

    The first two listings are people who have a birthday listed in their profile, but no year, so the system doesn't know how old they are. They get put first in the list by default.

    So it assumes they are 70? Why not just put
    or
    or something like that?

    It doesn't assume they are 70, it just doesn't list an age, note there is no age listed after their name. The (70) applies only to gts66

    Sorry WildCowboy, guess I was a little quicker on the draw. :D

    No, it assumes nothing...that's why there's no age listed for them. Every other member on the birthday list has their age in parentheses immediately following. If there's no age listed, there's no age in their profile.

    Edit: Yeah, what he said. :)

    Ah, OK, I thought that is was grouping the names I have hilighted in red above.

    I can't believe we have a TheCheat.

    This makes me very happy, and for such a small reason.

    :)
