She doesn't message you back. As long as you sent her a message, you'll be included. I had never received a message back when back when but my birthday had been included. Don't be frustrated! She's just very busy.

And it's still February, my birthday was the 22nd, it is that month, and birthdays were already announced! Confused and hurt! I'm Charlotte, Cody's is in September.

Can I still get my birthday points?

And thank you. I thought she was supposed to message back. That's good to know. Haha.

I don't think they give points for two people on the same account, but I could be mistaken!

I'm not 100% sure but I believe you need to message her before the month of your birthday (that way she can include you). Did you message her back in January?

This is what she says in the FAQ:

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.

this is correct

From the FAQ (can be found here: link):


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

Last thing I want to quote from the FAQ, It's about how she doesn't respond to messages:

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…)

Hey there, I think what sktb0007 was trying to tell you is that you can register Cody's birthday for September's birthday club and by-pass the waiting for a year scenario. Waiting five months is better than twelve.

Hey everyone! Yes, the elephant in the room is here. Thanks, everyone, for helping out and answering all the questions and linking back to the FAQ I posted. Super wonderful of you all for looking out for each other! Everything they posted was 100% correct!

Also, if you have concerns, don't feel you can't message me or Stormy about them. We can help out clearly up the confusion without passive-aggression. No, I don't generally respond to people simply submitting their birthdays but I will respond when I get one like this:
"DJ, I really need your help because I am confused about this club thing!"

Though everyone linking to the FAQ here really does the job for me so, again, you're all fantastic!

And Stormy is also completely and totally right! Just remember that if you choose to use the September birthday, you can't go switching it every year. So you pick what you prefer and just send me the memo via PM (private message, which can be sent from my profile page).

Not necessarily, I sent mine in once I found out about the club (Jan. 2012), she sent me a notice that I turned it in to close to the birthday and wouldn't be able to get one for that year. Which was fine, I did get one for this year.
