I don't mind filling out things like my location (as long as I can be general and not specific) or gender (okay, I'll be specific here ).
But WHY can't I just not answer the birthdate question? I'd rather leave it blank or enter "N/A" or "I was born during the Kennedy Administration" than enter false information just to protect my identity. And really, it's a sweet thought, but I'm not expecting a birthday card from EDC.
If you need to understand your demographics, then "birth year" or "what is your age range" would work for me.
Oh, maybe you need me to somehow certify that I'm not a minor...but that would be kind of silly since you don't really sell anything directly or host the types of forum topics that might require that you know the minor status of participants, do you? But okay, if you need to know I'm not a minor, then I'm sure we could probably figure out a way to do that.
But why do you need my birthDATE?
It seems that I can't fill out ANY of my profile without that info, and so the merry-go-round continues.
Thanks for listening!
