    Wow, only 3 birthdays today.

    dice:
    The birthday list has been modified to show only those with 100+ posts.

    Satangel:
    Awesome decision of the staff, wondered why there were so less birthdays nowadays.

    Cool. I noticed it being a little lengthy anyway, especially since most of them were users who just came here for a single question and never returned.

    Bad idea, I hate it.

    How will we be able to celebrate the birthdays of viagra sellers and merchants of pornography now?

    Awesome. This saves space, since most of the list is made up of newbies who just leave after asking a question.

    Make it 1 post rather than 100. You won't see much of a difference anyways.
    There are way too many 0 posters registered here.

    1 is too low as most people just join to ask 1 or 2 questions...
    I think 100 is perfect, but if you were gonna change it go with 50.

    Great idea btw!

    The way I see it if you have over 100 you're more likely to be recognized by others, understandably we wouldn't gave a damn about people who we're not familiar with.
