this would be especially useful for me, seeing as I keep getting mistaken for a guy (it's not really an uncommon occurance anyway--) and would appreciate it if I could get some sort of icon or note nder my avatar stating that I am of the female gender.

That's the first time I've ever heard anyone make that request on a forum in... Well, it's got to be about nine years online I reckon.

Firstly, I'm really not ure how on earth to go about adding something like that to the profile boxes.

Secondly, I suspect that most people would prefer not to have it there, because many like the gender anonymity of the web.

So, how about adding something in your sig that states your gender if you feel that it is important for people to know this?

Well, if they didn't want people to know, they wouldn't have to use them...

Some forums have them, I forget which ones though.

Every sort of expert knowledge and every inquiry, and similarly every action and undertaking, seems to seek some good. Because of that, people are right to affirm that the good is 'that which all things seek'...

The forum at my favorite an-cap site does and you can and you can choose not to respond, though about 90% of the people there do.

"Savior" isn't the right word, but it's the first word that comes to mind.

Well if someone wants to find out how you do this to IPB then I'll see if I can put it in place.

There's a link to their site at the bottom of the page.
