To be honest at the end of the day, this would be a no. If you want one day of hopefully getting supporter, is when peppy decides on doing so which is usually on an anniversary day of osu!

Why not skinnable background? it would just be seen by them for that 24 hours. if your supporter tag runs out, you can't see anymore that custom BG menus.
Oh well, you're right, but still, I'm not sure is it ok for a one-day background? I guess majority of players would not put a background because one-day background isn't worth it.

Unless there's a background bundled with the game that activates only on birthday then it's nice to be added so.

This can be very badly abused, being that a person's birthday can be changed infinitely. Couldn't a user just continue to increment their birth date to maintain the free supporter status? I mean, I'm sure that there is a way to circumvent that from happening internally -- with that being said, I don't think this is the best of ideas.

There's a way, which is restrict birthday date changing once the birthday has passed, just a way to stop abuse.

Just throwing in an idea which popped up in my mind while reading this.
Considering the fact that a 24h supporter is kinda useless and it could be easily abused if not controlled properly, I'd rather have a special "welcome theme" the first time you open osu on your birthday singing for you.
I know this is a bit silly, but it could be a nice alternative and some users may find it heart warming (like saying "osu! cares about you <3", or something like that xD).

As a solution for the correct "date" we could add a box into the options to input our birthday. This data will be stored locally on our pc (maybe someone doesn't want to make it public on their profile for whatever reason) and it will be asked just once to avoid abusing it (even if it doesn't really hurt anyone if someone just wants to hear that welcome more often, but I'd rather keep it for the right day only to make it more special :) )

Probably this is already a different request, but anyways...

Would be nice, as long as it has something listed below.

- No userpage feature.
- No increased beatmap submission.
- No vote request.
- No skin-able main menu background.
- No change names.
- No access to early releases.

The reason of these no's?
Well, because birthday always last 24 hour, it is a bad idea to reward with these above which last for a long time.

- Colored name, which isn't bright yellow or any existing color, to differentiate from current supporters.
- Access to osu!direct.
- Ability to view specifics ranking.
- Automatic downloads when playing multiplayer, spectating others, or clicking links in chat. (likely not to be added)

Important things that needs to be aware of- Restrict the birthday editing (of course, it'll have to be decided by someone's who better than me), or else it'll be heavily abused.
Just like everyone else, I heavily disagree with "no skinable main menu background".
What's the harm of a simple main menu background?

Well, I actually mean that it isn't worth it, the 24 hour background.

I'm not against, but it is just like not worth it for one day background, unless there's a automated background for a birthday then it should be worth it.

How about when you open osu! on your birthday, you get a mashup of "circles!" and "happy birthday" as the main menu theme

How about Birthday Tag ?

  1. Different colour name tag, not bright yellow.
  2. Access osu!direct for 24h
  3. Ability to view specific ranking
  4. Birthday tag on his/her profile for 24h

I think this is perfect.

Seems impossible to me since we manually set our birth date on our profile. It would have been possible if at the registery site we had to set it, so it would never change.

However, I can see people overusing this function and create multiple accounts for the pleasure of having a free 24h Supporter "tag".

Lock the birthday date once the birthday has passed to prevent abuse.

But not sure about multiple accounts for this feature since that is possible and is hard to be prevented.

Maybe the birthday has to be at least 3 months away from when you made the account? Someone before said a year before, that seems like a decent amount of time. Waiting at least 3 months for 1 day supporter would deter a lot of people from multiaccounting I'm pretty sure.

At least 2 weeks should be enough to prevent multi accounts for this feature.

What if the birthday of the person is really like 2 days after he/she made his/her account?

It would be very sad to see this.

Well
What about current supporter?
It feels a shame that non-supporters get a gift, while supporters don't
they can always get some osu!coins
