Hmm.. yeah, they're are quite a few. Most of them for members that don't come one here, anymore.

*raises hand*

Guilty - most of them were started by me. During my youthfully exuberant early Forum days (oh, to be 46 again!) I thought it would be nice to wish each member a happy birthday - it sorta got out of hand when I started a birthday thread for my wife's horse (no, he is not a member of the Forum). Then, Joe suggested we have just one thread for all and that's how this thread got started.

I stopped doing it after a while because every time I got an Outlook reminder (oh yeah, I kept track) to wish so-and-so a happy one, they were no longer posting.

Happy belated birthday to Yoko.yoko-ono_01

Happy birthday to my mum, today!! heart

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

The thing says two of my posts got moved here, what would those have been? Were they the George Martin posts? Hmm..  I thought that was originally here. Guess not. 

They were in a thread that was titled "Happy Birthday". I saw them. They live happily here now with all the other warm and fuzzy birthday wishes.

 

Ah, wondered why some posts from 2 months ago were being moved now. OK, thanks.

Spotted elsewhere that its Parlance's birthday today (despite the thing at the bottom saying it was "upcoming").

Happy Birthday @parlance ! 
Apologies for being late, but it still says it's your birthday over here! I am happy that you had a nice day, a very good way to begin yet another year of your life, and I wish you a good one :) Have fun at the concert!

Speaking for myself, no problem with forumites birthdays being consolidated, but I do not believe birthday wishes to people like Yoko, George Martin, etc, should be here, and I will be starting new threads for them next time around. If I look back through this, which I haven't yet, will I find John, Paul, George and Ringo threads have been folded into this?

Birthday greetings to people who use the site being in one thread makes sense, burying those who played parts in the story is, and would be, silly.

I would really rather have just one thread for all birthday wishes. While it's nice to say "Happy birthday Pete Best!", I don't think it really deserves being anywhere but the Birthday Topic. And hey, if Beatle people are being celebrated along with forumites, isn't that a good thing?

It's not really burying anything, it's making it findable and logical so people don't start dozens of threads which are essentially for the same purpose.

I guess the exceptions are where there are particular celebrations or tributes for John, Paul, George and Ringo. A good example is all the Lennon 70th stuff that happened in 2010. But even most of that would work perfectly well in this thread, x-posted to news etc.

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

It's my birthday on the 10th, so I'm going to Liverpool for a tour round the houses and then off to a vintage clothing fair to get me some more clothes. My mum's making me a cake with the design of
Help!, I'll post pics when she's finished.

Sounds like fun! I hope you will give us a report on your trip.

Cake!!!
