This profile will not keep the birth date! [closed]

I found this profile in my watch list without a birth date and immediately went to fix it.  Of course I clicked save.  The date did not save.  I have tried multiple times, but the birth date will not take!

The birth date is in the Biography.  I will be happy to open the profile if someone needs that to fix it.

 Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

There are only 30 days in September.

That is why it won't save.  OOPS

Oh dear.

Would be very helpful if the system told us why when it balks like that.
Not the first time, nor the last that I've seen this or done this.

I always remind myself that there are only 28 days in February, and if you try to use February 29 on a non-leap year... it's bit me on this before.
doh!  I feel like an idiot!  And my birthday is on Leap Year Day.  I should know better!  I didn't even bother to check if the date itself could be the problem.  Thank you David for pointing it out!
Its no problem. Too easy to do. To many dates in your head, you just stick down the date without thinking. Not the first time this has cropped up, and it wont be the last.

Have you somehow gotten a character into the field that the system doesn't want there?

The date on the gravestone is 21 September.

Thank you for pointing that out, Earl.  I just copied it blindly from the FAG inscription like the novice I was back in those days!  I have sent an edit request to the FAG manager for this memorial.
