Sherry has asked me to post this message.

If you wish to join the Birthday Group, approval will now be required. This step is being taken to protect The Stamp Shack only and is not a reflection on any current members whatsoever. Approval is a requirement on many sites and we think it is a good rule as there has been a problem on other sites and we don't want a problem here.

Thank you for your understanding.

Are "old" members being grandfathered in? If not, I would like approval I guess to list my bday. Who doesn't like their bday recognized, right? Oh wait, that may not be true for everyone. LOL

Fantastic, I'd like to apply NOT to have birthdays if you can arrange that, 28 is working out for me just fine, I'll stick with this one please. :)

You are already in the Birthday Group, Mary, so no worries for you!

Well, if you can stick with 28, then I'm going to stick with 35! That was a good year for me!

Hehe, I wish I could stay at 28 forever too! Pat

That sounds too much like Grandmother and I don't feel old enough to be a grandmother! Although I certainly am old enough -- just because I have a 10-year old daughter doesn't mean I could't have a 30-year old one!

The birthday group has been fun! I try to send a bunch of cards every month -- I wish I could send enough for everyone!

I want to be on the list if I am not already. I like the age I am right now. It is 35 and that's where I'm staying. Hugs, Heather

Do we know yet what the new procedure will be? I wouldn't mind having a "happy birthday" or two on the day ;)

Hi ladies,

Let me explain this issue better. For those of you who are already a member of the birthday group, you will remain in the birthday group - no further steps are necessary. For anyone NEW wanting to join the group, you would sign up as normal (please see this thread for instructions (http://www.stamp-shack.com/forum/showthread.php?t=56)) but I would have to approve your application. The reason we are doing this is because, apparently, there is a person (or bot) going around to different message boards, joining their groups and then causing trouble (ie. hundreds of spam posts to the group forum). Unfortunately, once this person has been granted access to the group, there is no way to stop them, You can't even delete or ban them. So, in order to prevent this from happening to us, you will now need approval by moi.

Hope this makes sense!

Cheers!

Sounds good to me. Birthdays are great. So I hope as an old member I'm in group or this is my approval to put me in the group. :nod:

Can I go back to 29? I think I had to turn 30 this year since my DS turned 15. Have to keep the numbers somewhat believable. :biglaugh:

Sherry, Thank you for looking out for us. What we would we do without you. You take such good care of us and are thinking way beyond what any of us could even imagine. That's what makes this site so great.

Sherry,

How long does it take to be approved? I'm a newbie here and submitted my application.

Thanks.
