Eden's Birthday Club - Rules and FAQ!

Darling Jen Darling Jen
The Eden Fantasys Birthday Club!

As we draw close to celebrating a brand new year together as a community, I wanted to update everyone as to what’s going to happen with the Birthday Club. After all, it’s all about finding reasons to celebrate together!

First, I am happy to announce that I will be continuing the Birthday Club! It was up in the air for a while as my life keeps getting busier and busier. But I would honestly miss you lot way too much to quit now! I will be the point-of-contact to submit your birthdays to. As I have had many issues in the past with successfully receiving emails, I want to keep the submission option ONLY to PM through EdenFantasys. Also, your point-of-contact with Eden-points questions is Stormy. Just keep in mind that we’re both busy ladies if you send us a question.

Second, if you have any suggestions to make to Birthday Club more exciting, more participatory, or just have great ice-breaker questions – send them to me! Also, I want this thread to become the new question and discussion section for the club, so post away! I’ll try my best to get to every question, concern, and idea.

Third, because I receive loads of one sentence PMs asking me what the Birthday Club is, how to participate, where to find it, etc. (basically questions that could ALL be answered by reading any of the shout-outs already posted), I wanted to post a complete list of the ‘rules’ and FAQ in one place for easy reference. It’s the boring part of this post but completely necessary. Just see the info included below!

And something I know everyone is wondering – when will the January 2013 shout-out post?! And my answer is: SOON! I am really excited about this new format I’m working on and I want it to be the best it can be. Happy New Year, Edenites!!!

Birthday Club – FAQ

1. What is the Birthday Club?
a. The Birthday Club is an awesome once-a-month thread to celebrate birthdays! There are no dues to be paid, homework to complete, or required meetings to attend. All in all, it’s a fun monthly post for every to share warm and fuzzy birthday feelings while learning a little bit from the posts.

2. How do I join?
a. You PM me. No, posting on a thread doesn’t count. Writing on my profile wall doesn’t count. Sending messenger pigeons doesn’t count. Simply PM me through EdenFantasys with your birthday.
b. On the note of sending your birthday – PLEASE type out the month name. Why? Not all countries use the same format! Some countries use month first, others use day first. If I typed 3-10, you don’t know if it’s March 10th or October 3rd.
c. No, I don’t need your year.

3. How do I participate?
a. You find the most recent Birthday Club Shout-out and join in on the discussion! Read the post to learn something cool and then celebrate with the other Edenites!

4. Who do I message and when?
a. You should PM as soon as possible. It doesn’t matter if it’s 11 months from your next birthday because I save them all! If you forget, however, and message me after the shout-out has been posted for your birthday month, you will need to patiently wait until it comes around again. We do this to be fair. Also, Eden is so amazingly generous, there will be plenty of fun, fantastic, and free opportunities during the rest of the year, which makes waiting easier.

5. Can I still receive the points even if I’m not in the shout-out?
a. Nope.

6. Where can I find all of the shout-outs?
a. All Birthday Club Shout-outs can be found here: Birthday Club.

7. My partner(s) and I use one account, can we have multiple birthdays?
a. Nope. One birthday per account only.

8. When will I receive the points?
a. Usually by the 10th day of the month. There is no exact day every month since Stormy and I don’t always have matching schedules. But be patient because they will arrive!

9. What if I don’t want everyone knowing my birthday?
a. Then don’t give me your birthday…? If you still want to participate, you can always give me a different day within your month if it helps.

10. Why don’t I get a reply when I submit my birthday?
a. Because I have received nearly 200 messages within a single month before and it makes it crazy impractical for me to respond to each of them. (This is especially true when they are just asking me what the club is…)

11. What if I change my username on Eden, will you automatically update it for me?
a. I have almost 1,000 birthdays recorded at this time. So there’s no way I could keep up with individuals. If you do change your username name, please PM with the change and your birthday so I can locate you easily.
b. Example: “I used to be “EdenUser1” but changed it to “EdenF1” and my birthday is January 1st.”
c. If it goes un-updated, Stormy will have a lot of difficulty in getting you your points!

12. Do I have to resubmit my birthday every year?
a. Nope! I have birthdays saved from before the club’s first post. I began collecting birthdays in November 2010!

13. Can I submit a birthday for my friend/partner/family on Eden?
a. Nope. There have been quite a few people who are not comfortable with being included in the club. And I want it to be within everyone’s power to control whether or not they are listed in the shout-out.

So sexy! I love the changes, by the way. Chinese zodiac isn't as well known or understood in the Western world.

You must PM me, not email, to be included. I have already received nearly 100 so far this month for me to sort through! Good gracious!

Also, yes, the points will be automatically credited to you, which is why it's so important for me to have your current username.

"Sending messenger pigeons doesn’t count." Too funny! Gosh, such an incredible amount of busy work for you. I'm probably not as good a person as you & certainly not as patient!

Awesome post! Good to have it all in one place.

I just realized - I don't think I got my points for my birthday last month. I was listed in the shout-out list, but I wasn't sure when the points would happen (I thought maybe it was just late in the month, and that was why I hadn't gotten them yet) but suddenly it's January and still nothing. Is there someone I should email about this?

Good to know! I was going to ask about submitting for a friend. His birthday is coming up and I think he'd really like points for his birthday! I'll definitely tell him about the club. I'm already a member!

indiglo and Wicked Wahine, yall made my week. Thank you for the compliments. To me, it's worth it when I see people giving birthday wishes and sharing stories. With all the sadness in the world, small amounts of time and safe spaces for only happiness matter a lot!

A PM is a private message. If you click on someone's username it will take you to their profile. From there, you'll see a link near the top of the screen to send them a message. It's that easy!
