Maybe it’s due to an old account but the profile age has always been black despite setting the date of birth and to show age in profile. I wonder if there’s a way to fix that.

I have the same issue.

It is supposed to show, according to my profile settings but it doesn't, underneath my avatar, as it does with other people's.

Please PM me the full date you'd like to use. And blitzkrieg.
I might have a solution via the back door.

Confirmed as functional -

It seems to be a problem with the Edit Profile page. It tells you to enter your birth date as mm/dd/yyyy. But it actually needs to be entered as mm-dd-yyyy. Dashes rather than forward slashes.

For example, it needs to be 01-31-1981. Not 01/31/1981.
viewtopic.php?t=408213#p9117299


Edit to add: er, nope. :roll:
dd-mm-yyyy has worked with several members.
No spaces, just as it appears above.
Today 28 Nov 2023 would be 28-11-2023

This does not work for me, the dashes or the spaces between dashes

But there are no spaces between dashes, or anywhere else...
Also, your age is currently showing under your avatar and on your profile page. :?

Have you tried entering your birthdate as mm-dd-yyyy as per my PM suggestion? (no spaces! :wink: )

Try it as dd-mm-yyyy

That worked here, and the incorrect age sounds similar to what you're finding - viewtopic.php?t=416291#p9406184


(Yes - it is ridiculous, all this fiddling around, but this seems to be one area (of many) where customization of the codebase has broken things)

The dd-mm-yyyy format actually worked this time round, so the example is wrong now i guess :p
