You may remember that the forum was moved from one software platform to another? When we did that we updated the registration profile info to meet current legal requirements. You are being asked about your birthdate because we don't allow kids to register here. This is to meet the COPPA law regs in the USA. Anyone currently registered who never included that info is prompted when they try to update their profile.
