Feature Request: pronoun tags

Postby merspieler » Tue May 23, 2023 8:43 am

Is is possible to add a pronouns field to the profile and show it next to the posts?
(you&, she/her)

Please use gender neutral terms when referring to a group of people!

That might indeed be a good suggestion by Alan, as we don't show the profile info on small-screen devices, while the signature is visible there.

+1 for merspieler's suggestion: I think a dedicated field for preferred third-person pronouns is a good idea, following the lead of GitHub and many other sites. People can always add pronouns to their .sig as well, as Alan mentioned, but a dedicted field shows that we care at least as much about gender identity as we do about callsigns, and makes FlightGear more welcoming for a wider diversity of users.
