Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    Well, you can get the year by subtracting the age from the current year.

    well, it's not quite as simple as nokrev says, but that's basically it. but you can't get a complete DOB unless you already know the person's month and date in addition to age.

    Yeah, but that's the best you can do with the information you have. It won't work in a lot of cases, but it'll get you within one year.

    E.g., I'm currently 16, but I was born in 1990. 2007-16 is 1991, though, because it's not my birthday yet.

    well, you could still do better if you apply any probability to it. so on 2/17/2007, you're 16. also on 2/17/2007, approx. 10.4% of 2007 has passed. so there's an 89.6% chance that if you're 16 today, you were born in 1990, not 1991.

    Or, more simply put (I think this is what you're getting at), you could just see if today is after June 1st, and if it is, there's a greater than 50% chance that they're that age, otherwise they're the subtracted value, minus one. Or, something like that...
