Re the gender thing -- maybe it's a politically correct issue and thus more hassle than it's worth?

Anyway, I'm a female.
The gender does show on your account @Devi .... click on ABOUT ... I know that you have to put your gender in there to post other information .... right @Matrix ?
The gender check seems to lock in your account for everything else you put in there.
(That's my feeble explanation)

I just looked at your profile, Bonnie. Hadn't realized your adorable dog was an intellectual! :love:

What am I missing? If I click on name, I only get basic information like the date you joined, # of messages, etc.

Click on your username at the very top of the screen, Jules, and when the rectangle profile box displays, to the far right of you'll see - Report/Edit Profile Banner.

Click on Edit Profile Banner, and choose whatever saved image you have that you want for the banner, then click on Save. That's it. :)

I've been toying with the profile banner image and think I found one I like. At first I didn't realize you can move the image up and down a bit. I have one now.

@Aunt Marg and @Devi:
  1. Click or hover over a member's name to get the small info screen.
  2. Click on the name within that little screen.
  3. A short way down the page is a horizontal menu bar that includes the option "About"
  4. Click on About
Assuming the member has filled out some information and makes it available for other members to see, you can often learn a bit more about the people you're chatting with, including gender.

Thanks, Star.

One thing I notice, which I don't think such was the case before, but I see that there is no longer a gender specification when one visits Account Details.

I'm certain when I signed up as a member and was filling out the particulars related to my profile info, there was an option listed to specify ones gender, but I no longer see that option.

Maybe, I'm thinking... once a member clicks on "male or female", the forum software auto-stores that selection but doesn't display it.

*As a side note to any/all here who may be left scratching their heads as to my gender, please allow me to take this moment to inform you that I am indeed of the female variety. :)

We made gender info mandatory for new registrations last year, but some members may not specify it if they registered before the change.
i saw a new member with no gender just the other day. that's why i asked.


i have a new question today. how does one go about putting an image in their signature?
