Do you want to have Birthday Announcements over here?
Posted by: rgG
Date: December 16, 2005 09:00PM
I wanted to ask everyone’s opinion about posting Happy Birthdays here. I have been posting the Birthday Spectacles at DM since joycee asked me to help out last summer. I have decided to stop posting them at DM, there is a thread there that explains why. If you care, you can check it out.

My question is, do you want me to continue the tradition of birthday announcements over here? If the majority want it, then I will post a sign-up thread later and we can get a fresh up to date list. If the majority says forget about it, then so be it.

Please let me know how you feel.

PS. There are some birthdays coming up in the next few days. I'm going to post those until we get a consensus, just so no one's feelings are hurt.

Thanks,
Rhonda

Yes. I think it's a very nice community feature. And thank you very much for taking it over from Joycee!

Be sure to get the OWC crew!

Ken, I feel like maybe you should get a re-post of your birthday, since it took place on the ill-fated forum change over day. That was just sad.

Yes, of course, by all means keep up with the B'Day spectaculars. It's just another way to tell them over there that they can't keep the power from the people.

At the risk of sounding biased (my birthday was yesterday, and I appreciated the announcement!), say;
Yes

As long as you and Joycee are willing, and it's not turning into work for you, please do continue!

rgG,

Your birthday announcements are great! The best part is you bring more than just Happy B-day to so and so. It's the personal touch you give them.

him carry me, and yet assure myself and others
that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his
lot by all possible means — except by getting off
his back. - Leo Tolstoy, novelist and Philosopher
(1828-1910)

What reason would there be to say no? I think I recall even getting one from joycee shortly before I was uncerimoniously booted.

Just because no one else has said it... "No".

Just because I say I don't want you (or anyone else) to post it doesn't mean you shouldn't, though. winking smiley

Post away!

All signs point to "yes"





The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

LOL, ArtP, I agree - everyone deserves a bit of spectacle on their birthday. And cowbell. Lots of cowbell. ;)

rgG, you do such a wonderful job with the birthdays - I'm glad that you're willing to continue them! You make everyone feel so special, which was the original goal when I first started doing them all those years ago.

Have you thought about what you'll call them here? On the other forum, they were "Obligatory" in homage to all of the "Obligatory Apple Store posts" and they were "Spectacles" in homage to Randy B <[forums.dealmac.com]; (I miss him!).

It seems like we need to come up with a fresh and unique title for them here in their new home, ya think?
