This question already has an answer here:

I am having a similar issue reported in this question: Age not updating on profile.

I had a birthday several months ago, but my Stack Overflow profile still says the younger age.

This seems to be a bug, but please let me know if I am missing something.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

In other words, you're not aging. Now that's a breakthrough! :) – Mysticial Apr 30 '13 at 4:08
@Lucifer This question is not Stack Overflow only. Because his age is 26 in his all profiles. – hims056 Apr 30 '13 at 4:14
Opps....hims....I just edited according to what OP said, I forgot to do that research. – Lucifer Apr 30 '13 at 4:16
I swear, SE doesn't handle dates well, they should hire Skeet for dealing with obscure dates! – Richard J. Ross III Apr 30 '13 at 4:19
@RichardJRoss are you refernceing 1927? News flash: THAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED! – Cole Johnson Apr 30 '13 at 4:59

This is not a bug. The correct birth date format is YYYY/MM/DD, whereas I incorrectly entered it in the wrong format. The age now shows correctly.

It would be nice if there was something explaining the expected format though where you enter your birthday for your profile.

This is why we use standards, like ISO 8601. – Richard J. Ross III Apr 30 '13 at 13:11
