Not possible in phpbb code, without adding it as a custom field. And I doubt the mods want that pain in the arse.

Little tacky, but it'd do the trick. Using alt 11 and alt 12 for conciseness. ♂♀

Considering they only have one postcount, they probably posted twice when their first one didn't appear.

Not to mention the number of people who would (a) rather not have it on their profile, or (b) rather not be associated with one of the traditional genders and its associated pronouns.

There's always the a) not filling in that field and b) using a sign for a non-traditional gender (I just looked them up and they exist).

I hope it's obvious that I, in no way, meant to offend.

The point of this thread is to ask the pronouns people prefer, so that we can use them when we talk about them. It is not about people's gender; that is personal information that nobody is obligated to provide. The idea is to avoid presumption of gender and insensitivity.

It's the fault of these gendered languages >_> Reforming English isn't any closer either.

Male. Male pronouns.

Sorry if it's a lot of hassle for a very small change, but now that I've thought about it I'd like to have it on mine that I don't really like plural pronouns.

So it'd be he/him/his > she/her/hers > they/their/theirs.

Sorry for the trouble and thanks for an excellent thread!

Alright. I'm going to have to omit your other request, I'd rather avoid listing potentially offensive choices that are not serious anyway.
