Anyone else get annoyed by websites, specifically gaming websites, that demand all sorts of personal information?  You do NOT need to know my birthday. And if you do, maybe you need to know the year I was born but not all of it.  Anyone else make up birthdays for these places?  I told the last place I was born in 1901.  They told me that no one over 70 was allowed to register on their website.  I guess my dad is out, then.  icon_smile  What if I really was that old?

Anyway, why do they need to know all this stuff?

it's easier to keep track of you.  BTW, you never did your email validation for 'Hot and Heavy Moose Fuckers'-  you might want to get around to doing so.

Does it bother you that through the wonders of Google Analytics I can track your location, time spent on a website, Operating system, browser, and screen resolution?
I have to check the stats for about 10 different sites for my company daily and it always amuses me.

When sites require this stuff, and I don't think it's pertinent to my viewing the site, I always make stuff up. I'm generally born on Jan 1st, 1901 (or whatever year is first in the list), my Name is Fred Ziffel, my company is Green Acres Farming Supply, and I'll choose "other" on any question where that's available.

Yes. I have a fake age, birthday, name and address that I use for sites that don't really need to know this stuff.

Whenever Gametrailers wants to check my age I usually put 1901. I like to screw around with their statistics smile

This probably explains why the Software Publishers Association claims that the average age of a gamer is over 35.

I try not to be too anal with the inspections either.

I remember how ticked off I was at Knightshade when I first registered with GT all those many moons ago.  I honestly felt he went too far.

I remember it like it was yesterday:

GT:

Name

Birthdate

Location

....What are you wearing?

Me:

what?

GT:

What are you wearing...right now?

Me:

I don't see how that's perti....

GT:

Are they tight pants?  Jeans, maybe?

Me:

Wait...what?

GT:

Just answer the questions. 

You doing anything tonight?

Me:

Seriously, this is creeping me ou...

GT:

Shhh...don't type.  You're going to ruin this moment.

Me:

....
