Hey! I'm new here and I'm really excited to be part of a snail forum. However, I was really, really put off by the fact that the forum *REQUIRES* choosing between two binary gender options in order to register. Not to mention the weird binary gender symbol that hangs out next to your avatar whenever you post. Neither of the two options are applicable to me, and I honestly feel like I'm unwanted unless I lie. Can you please fix this? You can either make the gender component optional or create more options to choose from (at the very least, a third "other" option?).
I'm very sorry that making the account put you in an awkward position, i completely agree that atleast there should be an "other" option. Unfortunatly it is something the people at probaords (the site which hosts numerous forums including this one) decided was required for all accounts and isn't anything to do with this forum or the admin and is not something any of us here can change. i had a look around and managed to find this which explains how to not display a gender icon: www.proboards.com/user-guide/profile-info/gender
