Author Topic: Visibility of calendar  (Read 2061 times)

There are trustworthy rumors (in the happy birthday thread in General Discussion) that the forum has a calendar functionality that allows -- among perhaps other undisclosed things -- seeing when it's a member's birthday.

I'm having trouble finding that, and Paladin Zebra is reporting similar  problems. The moderator I talked to (hi, Sal!) was confused by this and thought I ought to be able to see it. But it looks like I'm lacking privileges -- see screenshot here.

Is this supposed to be a member-plus-only feature or something? The return-of-members-plus thread has people saying that M+ is supposed to come with the ability to add things to a calendar, but doesn't say that the calender in question is only visible to M+.

Can you view this? I'm not entirely sure if Calendar is M+ only or not cause I never use it.

If you take a look here...



You should see the birthdays above the Forum Stats. Not sure if this is a Member Plus thing, though.

In that case I think it might be a M+ page... Not sure why...

The problem is viewing the calendar, not adding events to it.

It does make some sense to restrict easy access to that information so not anyone in from the street can see it just by registering an account. A birthdate can be argued to be (borderline) personally identifying information, and a fair number of members are minors.

Just a pity the upgrade path to more trusted status is closed, then.

16-month bump because I was reminded of the thread and we now have a new admin.

The calendar must have disappeared for everyone except possibly mods when M+ was abolished.

Derpy One, do you have a button you might push to bring it back?

I completely forgot about this  :-X
Seconded, it's a feature I'm still not sure why only M+'s were able to use/view.
