The woman had been born 34 years ago, but told people she had only had 26 birthdays. She was not lying.

Qwike

You currently have 5 active puzzles in play which is not encouraged (3 is the recommended maximum). Also you have an outstanding question on one of your puzzles which was posted 5 days ago. It's for exactly this reason that it is recommended that you don't run too many puzzles at the same time.

With regard to this one are the following relevant? February 29th? Time Zones?

I do not have 5 active puzzles in play. What I do have is puzzles that have been spoiled but have not yet been moved to the solved puzzle forum. As I can not move my puzzles there I should not be chastised for the fact that they haven't been moved there.

But see ya. I can tell when I'm not wanted

Qwike,

Don't let one person's ignorance cause you to leave here. People make mistakes, as Peter did here. It was wrong for him to post that without checking to see if your puzzles were in fact active, but hey at least you got questions.

I have 3 puzzles up that no one will ask anything on. And one can be solved with just one more question thats so glaringly obvious I can't think of a hint to put up that wouldn't give it away

*spoiler*

A birthday is also known as an aniversay of a birth. One of the correct definitions for anniversary is "a celebration of an anniversary." This woman had only celebrated the anniversary of her birth 26 times, so using the definitions above, she only had 26 birthdays

My mistake . It's nothing to do with you're not wanted i just made a genuine error because your spoilers were not in bold for which i naturally apologise.
