What's the cakeday for?

the title says it all. what is the cakeday for? i found it today, (which is coincidentally my birthday) and saw that it just shows everyone’s birthday. what do we need that for?

Its just a fun thing to show anniversaries of a user’s account creation.

If you have questions about Discourse, you can always ask on meta.discourse.org.

so…what happens on a cakeday?

The user gets a :birthday: cake next to their name for the day.

Isn’t it for regular birthdays?

Depends on if the user set their birthday in user settings. If they didn’t, it’ll default to their anniversary.
