    I think it would be nice if it were an option to have your gender displayed on your posts and profile. I never know if I should call someone "Brother: or Sister".

    I can see where such a feature would be worth some consideration.

    Not everyone is a brother or sister in Christ. But may I suggest that we change our signatures by adding our name with the prefix, Mr., Mrs., Miss, or Ms. I have started the ball rolling. Who's next?

    True but I still tend to call many people "bro" so It would be nice. Your idea is good I'm just not big on using my real name on forums, I suppose I could be Mr. MISFIT.

    I don't call the shots, the final say will come from Greg most likely...

    Who else wants to spam Greg's inbox with PM's, until he gives-in? :chin

    while i think this is a great idea, such as a blue male icon or a pink female icon, not everybody has sigs turned on, like myself. i think they take up too much space on the page, and if you really want to know what somebody's sig is you can click on their name to take you to their profile page. i think my idea is best, but it should be optional for each user to choose.

    If I know Phpbb well enough, if a gender feature is added it will go under the avatar and their would be a feature that allow's this to remain either private or blank.

    I believe this will require a mod. Mods can be version sensitive, not compatible from one version to the next. Right now the version running is 3.0.3 but there's a newer version out 3.0.4. I believe we'll be upgrading soon.
    Mods also need to be PHPBB approved to be considered here.
    Getting a mod installed here is not easy. Admins don't have FTP access therefore we can't install a mod at will. Greg has tech support to do maintenance here so communication/approval can take time. And I haven't seen Greg around in quite a while.

    I've posted on many a forum over the years some good some bad some ugly :biggrin, but only one had a gender feature and it was optional. It's just kinda nice to know, here's an example, on one forum I used to post on (it no longer exists) I said to another poster "right on bro" they replied, "thanks but I'm not a bro." I felt dumb. :oops

    I do think that this feature would be beneficial. It would be especially useful if the mods decide to do gender specific boards.

    And MISFIT, by your location, I would assume you to be a brother... :shrug
