We made a big profile change and you need to check (this is clickbait yo)

Recommended Posts

What up.

 

After a pertinent asked question and internal debate, I went forward with a big modification to the core profile options. The entire point of the Gender profile line was to inform people how you liked to be called in the third person, and honestly, it wasn't really sufficient in 2004 and definitely isn't sufficient today. I killed it. It's Pronouns, now.

 

You'll have to reset your settings in your profile. I tried to make it inherit from the previous value (e.g. if you were Male you'd automatically get He/Him) and I completely fucking failed at it, so you have to compensate for me. I'm open to the idea of expanding this, but I think the current options are much more inclusive than the previous Gender options while still being pretty easy to look at. I'm an engineer, after all, and beholden to good UX design.

 

Feel free to leave feedback in this thread, or DM me, or whatever.

 

As you were.

 

EDIT: Oh yeah, it's multiple-selection, if you have more than one set you're cool with. Go for it.

it took more time to nail down the wording and options, including contacting a third-party expert to help me figure out how to get it right, than it actually did to put the words into a list. the actual coding time was like 2 minutes.

 

EDIT: that does omit me dry-testing it on the admin side where nobody could see me fuck up, so i should say 'once i knew what i was doing it took like 2 minutes'

That is definitely a most important step.

It's definitely a good idea.

Though I have one question: After trying it out, can't the pronouns field be left empty anymore?

I can't remove it unless I oversaw something.

I seem to have lost my gender/pronouns in the switch.  People now will just have to always use my full name when referring to me, now.

Cool, but can there be a blank option?

switching to a multiple-selection enabled field removed that option as far as i'm aware - i might tinker with it in the future or a patch might enable it, but for now i have to choose between letting people choose multiple sets or letting there be a blank option, and i went for the former

Just don't set it, I know I won't bother to.

yeah it would be absolutely terrible if people knew what pronouns to use when referring to you

 

EDIT: anyway, ninjamonkey being a fuckhead as always aside, Any/All is now a selectable option after some feedback on discord for if you really don't care how you're called but don't like the big pile of selecting all the options

Male is the default option, so I don't need to set anything. Besides they can always call me by my username.

good job you ignored learning and created a single moment where the name can be substituted for the pronoun with no regards to, for instance, the entire problem that japanese tends to not use pronouns and it sounds awkward as fuck if you swap to calling someone by their name or title every time in english

 

EDIT: here let's play the examples game

damn i can't believe ninjamonkey supports the detroit lions, he must live an existence of pure suffering or maybe he's just come to terms with it

Why are we arguing in here? Either use a feature or don't...

Just if you don't use it, expect to be asked what pronoun you want or for people to use one you don't use. That's my two cents anyway.
