Adding Yourself
(1) Please subject/title your note to this account with "Add" only.

(2) Then include your birth date in the following format for example: November 11th. Please only leave us your birth date in the note. If you want to leave us any praise etc please leave that information on our profile page!

Important: Please do not write your birthday as 09/10 for example because different countries switch the dates around.  So for some people 9/10 is September 10th and for others 9/10 is October 9th.  So make sure to spell out the month to avoid confusion.

Birth dates left on the profile page and/or journal will not be added.

Oof, so many comments asking to be added! I have a suggestion, if that's okay.

Maybe some users could mistake "note" for "comment" - you could rephrase your "Adding yourself" instructions to say "Send a Note" or "Write a (Private) Note" - maybe include a screenshot snippet of the "Send a Note" button at the top of your page? You could attach this link to it as well: www.deviantart.com/notificatio…
Or write NOTE in all caps everywhere - I don't know!

It's so hard to reinforce rules when you've already got a big "DO NOT POST YOUR BIRTHDAY HERE!" sign above the comments. ^^;  I have run some communities/teams and sometimes it feels like people just don't read!! Which I know happens often, and we cannot control it.

Frustrations aside, you're doing great work here for the DA community, and it's a very cool idea. : )  
I hope this can continue even once Eclipse hits!

I also have one question: Am I allowed to add someone else's username/birthday to the database via notes? Or do they have to do it themselves?
Thanks! Have a wonderful day/night!

Hi there, thank you :D

Haha yeah. We do keep talking about how we can change that, but honestly I don't think it'll work. I volunteer in a charity shop that works like a pound shop (or dollar store depending on where you're from) and we always get people asking how much things are -_-

To the last question, I'm afraid that we only accept database entries if the note comes from the account of the username. It's to avoid getting accused of sending spam. So if you know of anybody who you think might want to be on the database, just let them know about us :D

You're welcome!

That's fair! You are right - even if you do change things, it likely won't change everyone's behaviors. ^^;  Ah well!

Thanks for explaining that for me - makes sense. Will do! :D 

Have a lovely week!
