    Does anyone know .... (early neopets question)

    When did neopets start asking for birthdates to register?

    He means register, not log in. If I'm not mistaken, from the beginning?

    I joined first in...02? And I had to give a birthday. So to cut down your timeframe by some.

    I feel like smileyadead is right...I can't imagine them NOT making you give a birthday esp with the age restrictions and stuff.

    It was never optional from what I remmeber if you was under 12 you had to get a parent to register you and shit.

    Also bday was added to login in about 2002 when I released a password cracker on msn groups.

    I saw I've had a prompt after logging in to an account telling me to set a birthday, maybe it was when we were making accounts and the birthday was being skipped.

    So, if someone registered when neopets first starting running, they didn't have to give a birthday, but when the birthday thing started a couple years later, if that same person tried logging in, it made them add a birthday even though they didn't have to originally?

    I still remember when they added this feature. All because of @raredaredevil releasing account crackers publicly.

    I remember they asked for your age group at the beginning, but not your actual birthday.
