A request
« on: July 22, 2014, 12:40:20 pm »
I hope I can post this here, I feel a little bit cheeky asking for something but here goes.

On the Profile settings under Gender, we currently only have Male and Female options. Could we have options for other non-binary genders please, or at the very least just a simple "Other" option.

Thanks  :fox-;):

This'd be neat I guess, but I still don't see the need to even include gender, not sure why everyone feels the need to show it :/

I like having gender there so I dont accidentally use the wrong pronouns for someone because sometimes It's hard to tell and I dont keep having to correcting people that yes, I am a girl because they automatically assume I am male.

So the gender feature is helpful.

this

even though it says they/them pronouns in my sig
people continue to call me she/her ???

if there was an option on my profile to say i'm non-binary i feel like that would help

That would definitely help because I know I automatically look to the side for gender (Although I did see the They/Them in your sig)

and others probably do too and that would be easier in case someone didnt have it in their signature, or if mentioned in an intro post, if someone didnt read that.

That's the default built into the program we use, I'm nor actually sure if that can be changed??? But yeah I agree, it's actually been asked before and its defienrlt something we'd like to change, or at least adding pronoun fields. I hope Natasha sees this because she can explain the changes better than I can

Heh, totally forgot about that whole pronoun thing x3

(I don't care about what pronouns are used toward me whatsoever)

The Gender field is intended to serve the purpose of indicating to others how you identify and which pronouns you prefer.  It was pointed out a few months ago that the options of "male", "female", and "neither" are insufficient for some people, and I came up with a potential solution, but a lot of things happened and the people who helped me come up with the idea left the site, so it was never acted upon.

But, you're right that we should implement that.  I'm on my way to bed right now, and I have a busy week/weekend, but I'll dig up my notes tomorrow and see what I can do next week.  I could use a few volunteers to help me test the new solution, so if you're interested, PM me :-)

There's a compatible mod for this! http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2152

(although that's really only a starting point, that mod is a bit... weird in the gender options)
