    Is there any way we might be able to get a gender choice like we have location and date joined and posts....in the past week, I have made a few embarassing mistakes about gender, and I was wondering if there was any way to prevent people from making this mistake......

    It's possible it could be an added feature after we upgrade to vb 3.0 later this year. Most likely though it would be something that would show up on your profile if we did it. And even then, it would be optional as some choose not to reveal that information publicly.

    I'm curious to hear what other people think about this though.

    I think it's a pretty good idea. I got in trouble once for mistaking that! :eek:

    This does sound good.:D I'd like to know who's a she and who's a he when I'm posting.

    thanks! I feel bad when I mistake that...I usually not try to specify gender in a post, unless I know..and even if some chose not to...I think most would and would make it easier!


    thanks dude! (I just wanted to call phil dude)

    Yeah, i'm all for it - i've made some embarrassing mistakes too. I guess as long as people can opt out it's not something people would object to.

    My gender is in my profile. But I did confuse Sarah. Not to many guys out there who would pick foofoo as a user name. But I suppose there are a few. Not a bad idea since before you respond you might not look at somebodys profile.:rolleyes:

    Is your user name supposed to be like Miss Piggy's dog?!

    I didn't think they'd be many girls who'd pick Carazy Harry, but we have been proved wrong.;)

    And I have always known tha Sarah is in fact named Thomothias

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    uhh...hate to disappoint you, but my name is Sarah.....


    and somehow superscoot has figured out my whole name....AHHH! (yes I know it was explained to me, but I didn't get the explanation)

    did I mention my hair is blonde?

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Don't try to trick us now, we know it is Thomothius.

    That would be very helpful to have gender. It would even be helpful to put ages in there aswell, or even just age groups, 5 -12, 13-20, 21+ etc. So we know the ages of who we are posting messages to.

    :) :p

    Yes, we must be sensitive to the many 5-year-olds on the group. That'd be weird, wouldn't it? :p

    And just in case anyone's interested, I'm a guy.

    If Sarah turns out to be a guy, I have some serious problems I have to work out...

    Speaking of which, Luke, are you male? Or female? I suspect male because of the whole Britney and penguin fetish, but after this thread, I'm not sure about anyone anymore! :zany:
  17. Beauregard

    Beauregard Well-Known Member

    I think it would be better and safer personaly to keep ages off. (Next we'll have full addresses!!!)

    Oh and sorry for the spelling error, Tomothius, er, Sarah.
  18. sarah_yzma

    sarah_yzma Well-Known Member

    well you can put your birthdate...so that's sort of like ages...I guess....

    I tend to assume that most members are male....just for that fact that most of the big posters are......most of the forums I belong to, the majority are male....maybe males just like forums more......


    In fact, I think I am the highest posting female...of course, I'm probably wrong;)

    I dont think we have to worry about safety too much on muppet central. I mean we're all muppet fans and theres not likely to be anyone bad on here. Why would anyone bad bother, seriously.

    Theres nothing unsafe on muppet central if your careful!

    I live in Australia and we're not quite as security conscious, but getting that way.

    Even if full addresses were displayed, would anyone seriously bother doing anything with them other than send eachother wonderful muppet gifts?


    I know theres not many or any people on here around the age of 5 but theres nothing to stop any, and younger kids are getting pretty good with computers these days.

    in 1995 I still barely could use a mouse, they were new technology on the old dos machines.
    sorry for the topic change!

    :) :p

    it's ok....I'm glad to hear security isn't tight as a noose somewhere...but sadly, there's that one person who ruins it for the rest....I know the US is VEE-E-E-E-RY seurity oriented.....and I *think* our cousins across the water are too.....it's horribly sad, but true.....

    I am very careful on everywhere I go....I only say what state i'm from, nothing more.....I say my age and first name.....and If I care to e-mail someone (which says I trust them) my e-mail does have my name...but I think I will even change that soon, also....it's sad that the world has come to this, and I hope in some places, people can feel safe wherever, but I have been threatened in my own school...and have my own little thing about security.....it's very scary when a person who knows where you live threatens to come do bodily harm to you....


    wow...I turned this thread morbid....FAST!

    here have a zany penguin:zany:
