Hi,
I have some code (below) which I use at work to remind me when my employee’s annual reviews are due, the problem I have is the names disappear of the list after a certain amount of time, how could I change the code so I have to confirm the review has been completed before the name disappears?

Regards,
<div id="content_wrapper">
<br/>
	<div class="onecolumn_wrapper">
	 <div class="onecolumn" style="margin-right:20%; margin-left:20%;">
	  <div class="content" >
<?php   

$curdate=date(m);
$query="SELECT * FROM teamdates WHERE MONTH(S_Date)";

$result=mysql_query($query);

$num=mysql_num_rows($result);

mysql_close();

$i=0;
while ($i < $num) {

$Date=mysql_result($result,$i,"Name");

$Date2 = substr($Date,0,10);

$Name=mysql_result($result,$i,"Name");
$S_Date=mysql_result($result,$i,"S_Date");
$ID=mysql_result($result,$i,"ID");

$start_time = strtotime($S_Date);

$print_member = 0;
if ($start_time > time()) {
  // $start_time came from the future.
  echo "Please check employee start date."; //validation
} elseif ($start_time < strtotime("-364 days")) {      
  // $start_time is over 30 days old.
  $type = "Annual review";

  $int2 = 3;
  while (($int1 = strtotime("+".$int2." months", $start_time)) < time()) {
    $int2 += 3;
  }

  if (strtotime("+30 days")  > $int1) {
    //if the review takes place within 7 days from now, print the member.
    $print_member = 1;
    $type_date = date("Y-m-d", $int1);
  }
} 

if ($print_member == 1) {
  echo "Name: <b>$Name</b> 
 <br>Start Date: <b>$S_Date</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; Review Type: <b>$type</b>&nbsp;&nbsp; Review Date: <b>$type_date</b>
 <hr>";
}

$i++;
}


?>

	<br class="clear">
</div> <!-- end content wrapper -->

Increase the value from "+ 30 days" to something higher like "+ 1 year".

  if (strtotime("+30 days")  > $int1) {
