Gender in profile setup.

We should have more than the usual boring binary options.

Good point! Unfortunately, I suspect that's beyond my powers (I am very much not an expert so I'm limited to what options the forum software makes readily available to me), but I will poke around and see if I can do anything about it.

EDIT: (for the second time, apparently I forgot to save it the first time.  Neutral ) I've made the Gender field a text box, so people can fill it with whatever is most appropriate rather than having to choose from a limited list.  

Totally unconnectedly and mysteriously innocent , you may notice that on your own profile, there is now a field of useless uselessness, which has options for male and female. It won't appear in your public profile, so you can safely ignore it. Sorry for the kludginess! Best I can do!

Another quick question - I see that I now have 2 reputation points, but I can't see to which posts I got these votes from :-(.
Anyway to fix that or tell me how do I see to from which posts I got these votes from?

Unfortunately not (or at least not until Sangheilioz is able to take a look and sort us out with something better).

Your reputation comes from when anyone clicks Like on one of your posts, and individual posts will show how many times they've been Liked, but there's no way to see where all your reputation comes from.

I've been getting into the habit of leaving a message on their Visitor Message board with a link to what comment I'm Liking whenever I Like a comment so they'll know. But it's kind of a pain. Hopefully we'll be able to sort out something better soon, I know this is a feature that everyone would really like, but so far, I haven't been able to manage it. Apologies to all for my lack of technical skills.

Good show.

Can you alter the choices to "breath mint" and "candy mint"?

Sadly, the choices are set in stone...but I've made them make slightly more sense with the field name.
