Say it all in the topic title. I find it hilarious that the character creation date is called "Date of Birth". It's like the character was born an adult with the knowledge of how to fly epic space ships.

This is a simple change to will change "Date of Birth" in character sheet / corporate member details / other areas to a little more reasonable "Date of Certification" or something to that effect. "Date of Birth" is a real immersion breaker...

This should be easy to do as well. I already suggested it in one of those "Thousand little things" threads, but I might as well support it for added visibility.

Would be nice if they actually fixed the employment record as well...still missing a year from mine.

Pointless interference. My character is born an adult every time it dies an adult.
Go break your own immersion some place that might matter.

Makes more sense, doesn't hurt anyone who isn't in favour of the change and shouldn't take 3 months and an entire team to implement.

Ok, I could be wrong on that last point. Razz

It's a minor change that hurts nobody if made, should be trivial to implement, and makes more RP sense.

Then I suppose you would agree to having your date of birth changed each time you are vat born? Rolling Eyes

You weren't Vat born with the knowledge of being a pod pilot nor with any of the other skills. Your character started out actually being born and having a 'normal' life until you decided to go for the capsuleer training which is when, in your character's life history, you started the game. Thus this proposal makes absolute sense since we aren't being born into the game, we are being certified as a pod pilot.

Should be an easy fix too. Just a matter of changing some text...

I like the born on date more. We are not still human. They toil, they get old and sick, they die.

We don't get sick, we don't get old, we don't get hurt. We have wealth beyond what they can ever dream of. We can store massive volumes of information in our heads.

We simply are.

When we became capsuleers we become something new, and whatever you want to call it, we are no longer human. Our born on date is simply when we became what we are now.

I think the "date of birth" is the date we became a pod pilot, ie immortal. It was our date of birth, at which point we ceased to have the ability to perminantly die (barring a bad accident with the cloning).

Yes, anything's better than Date of Birth.

Date of Birth doesn't even make sense, EVE time is measured differently from real world time.

What year is EVE on now? Something like YC113 I think, so where do they get 2003-2011 from?

Hey look, this guy eye rolled, he must be right. No wait, he's not, he's just using the eyeroll emote because he thinks he's obviously right, but he's not even close, that's not what I said, nor is it a logical assumption. In fact it's stupid.

Date of birth is a commonly accepted and understood principle, which is why it's used inappropriately in many applications.

Maybe get over it?

EDIT:
Although you know what, no I don't care if the d.o.b. updates every time you get podded. I literally do not care. How do you feel now? Angry? Mad?
INSANE?! Insane that somebody doesn't care to know how old you are?

Eh? How about that eh... somebody who doesn't care... well the ****ing cheek of it. HOW VERY DARE THEY?

I never did think of it, but now that you are mentioning it, it will annoy me every time i look at my character sheet ;)
