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.
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.
Would be nice, as long as it has something listed below.Just like everyone else, I heavily disagree with "no skinable main menu background".
- 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".Well, I actually mean that it isn't worth it, the 24 hour background.
What's the harm of a simple main menu background?
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.Lock the birthday date once the birthday has passed to prevent abuse.
However, I can see people overusing this function and create multiple accounts for the pleasure of having a free 24h Supporter "tag".
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.What if the birthday of the person is really like 2 days after he/she made his/her account?
