Suggestion: pronouns entry in profile
« on: August 06, 2021, 01:46:13 am »
So, was thinking, with the upcoming changes. Perhaps instead of say ICQ or one of those lines have one for pronouns? People can leave it blank if they want, but I thought it might be good for those that don't use want to use the lord or lady tag, or even then want something else. I know I am always scared to get it wrong and I know we have a listing for that, but I don't know if everyone knows it exist.

Anyway, just a thought I had. Feel free to throw tomatoes at me now :)

I'd really like this. I know we have a gender icon, but that's not actually the best indicator for a person's preferred pronouns. Just adding my voice in saying that I'd love it if profiles had a pronoun section. <3

I think I mentioned desiring this long ago(I highly doubt I was the first to suggest it), I know I did for Discord(Which thank you mods for adding pronouns to names by request ^_^). This would be a great addition to the new system I think and very helpful. Which it wouldn't surprise me if it's already planned.

I would love to see this. Probably the most helpful information that you can put there!

I *believe*  Veks said the icon was going away, anyway. Could be misremembering.

I'd love this too. Mine have already ended up as my personal text but it would be nice to have that free again.

I agree this would be a good thing to implement. I think a lot of people would appreciate it. And is ICQ even a thing anymore lol?

Even if it is (I don't think so), I know for a fact that most of the other messengers are dead.  If we're just wondering what to put where, I'd suggest putting Discord info where the old messenger icons were, and a pronoun field where the little gender icon is.  (Definitely a text field to allow for less common n/b pronouns.)

Why can we not have room for pronouns for those who wish to be identified in that fashion OR the gender tags for those of us who would prefer to be identified in that fashion?

There's Unicode support for that, too!  ♂ (Unicode 2642)    ♀ (Unicode 2640)  So they could also be put into a standard text field.

I may be doing it wrong, but that doesn't work in the profile section for me.  2642  or in this post

I'm typing 2642 pressing ALT and then X

I usually use the Windows character map applet, because it's easier for me to scan a bunch of symbols than remember an arbitrary number, but Microsoft's support pages says

Quote
To insert a Unicode character, type the character code, press ALT, and then press X. For example, to type a dollar symbol ($), type 0024, press ALT, and then press X. For more Unicode character codes, see Unicode character code charts by script.

I know it has to be done from the number pad, not the 'top of the keyboard' numbers.

Apparently it has to be done in a document off site first ♂ and then pasted in here

My old eyes can barely see the first ones;  But these ones are more visible ♂️ ♀️ 

And it takes two shots to get either pair into the profile.  The first one gives an error message; the second try works.

Thanks for your help
