My own :2cents

Yay - Christian/NonChristian (However, what about the cultic sects? Mormons? JWs? etc. It could get kind of confusing!)

Nay - for displaying age

Hmm....

I've implemented as a mandatory field a Christian yes/no radio button field. Let's see how this goes.

I haven't done the age yet, as it's pretty divided.

I don`t have a firm feeling about age. Seeing the age would be helpful and as a female, I don`t mind saying my age at all. I think showing age would be helpful because with a teen, I would definitely be much softer because I would see the feelings as more fragile and more likely to get hurt. Plus, I would probably show much more leniency because I would see teens as being less experienced and having much stronger emotions so I would just try to tolerate certain rants or immature comments from them. But a teen may not want that. A teen, might see such treatment as being babied and condescending. They may want the same mental challenge and acknowledgement as the next person. They may not want to be treated with kids gloves and pampered. I would definitely be softer and more motherly with a teen if I knew they were a teen. And like Strangelove, if someone were older, I would also feel an obligation to show extra respect. So I could not challenge them the same as a peer, but again someone older may not want that. They may want to come on and be on the same equal footing as everyone else so I think the decision of age should be decided by those who would get the preferential treatment. Do they want it or not? If I knew their age, I would give it and expect others to show the same mercy for a teen and respect for the aged. I would have a hard time seeing someone plow into either of these age groups.

Go to the top where it says

New Posts, Private Messages, FAQ etc

and under

Forum Actions:

Choose: General Settings

Then scroll down until you see the option (under the option to display your gender!)

Hope that helps!

Hoorah!

I still think optional age display would be a great step forward.

Optional of course.

Nice radio button implementation protocol Nick! :clap

Thanks. :)

You can choose to display your age on the profile. So we kinda already have that. It's only one click to a user's profile. What I think is more important is the Christian field. That's why it's displayed with a user's posts.

It is a good thought but does the software support it? It may not be an option with the current software. Ie the forum software on the server.

Top right - 'settings'

Left pane 'general settings'

Halfway down - Christian Yes: No:

And you can also put 'All Praise The Ancient Of Days' as your sig unless...uhm....you feel some sort of spiritual significance in typing that out for every post. Where do you get that from anyhoot?
