    Just like with how we have 'em for Members' Birthdays, I was wondering if we could implement the same but for Members' Anniversaries.

    Today is my 5 year Anniversary and had I not noticed on my profile, it could've easily been overlooked. I figured it would be nice to make Threads for Members who achieve such milestones (1 year, 2 years, etc.) because they might not even notice it!

    Just a thought :)

    Don’t we get trophies? And how would we know that they’ve come up in order to create the threads? I check the member section daily in order to wish people happy birthday—ohhh they could program a new sub section in members that notifies about anniversaries the way they do birthdays.

    I could make a happy anniversary section, but it’s whether or not it’d catch on with the wider community. There are ways to see if people are interested in that/will engage with that idea... if you can convince me of it then I’ll consider making the section ^_^

    That being said, there are commemorative trophies for it (as @Kia mentions) that I personally think are reward enough

    Do people use the birthday notifier?

    You mean that sub section over there where it lists those members whose birthday it is? The one that looks like this: A9BB4FE3-8E7C-4FFE-BEC5-E05DBB536932.png Yes. I use it daily to wish people happy birthday who’ve been active in the last few years. If it’s more active people or people to whom I’m closer, I start a thread. :P

    As do I. That's why I figured if there was one for anniversary reminders, we could make Threads for them. :)

    Inactive members (the ones who never interacted) would clutter the sidebar though.

    True, but that also happens with the 'Birthday' Sidebar.
    I always scope out active members to make a Birthday Thread (unless @Kia beats me to it)

    I just figured it'd be a fun thing to implement. If not, no biggie. Just a thought! :)

    Yes, this one. I should probably try and work out how to get rid of all the inactive accounts on that list...

    You mean stop them from showing up there after they’ve been inactive for like five years or so? I suppose that would make it look more clean. ^_^ There’s some if/then statements you can stick in there somewhere that’ll screen it for you, I’m sure.
