I have had problems with not having sufficient knowledge of a member, and I'm sure many others have too. This can occur when a someone is posting about a fellow member and call them, for example, a "he" when they are a "she", or vice versa. This can be rather frustrating, for it has happened to me a jillion times.
I've had that happen to me, too!
Maybe a little pink smiley face or a blue smiley face under the username would be one way to solve that.
(Kind of old fashioned, with the colors, but a fairly simple solution.)
As a parent, I would not allow my kids using a site like this to identify their gender. I don't even mention their genders or quantity when trading with people - I only mention "kids." You just never know who is out there. Surely most of the people here on WI are great people and not to be worried about, but it is a public site and you don't know who is lurking or lying.
I suggest that if you want to address someone as "he" or "she" that you take a guess, write "he/she" or "they" or something like that. I bet that most people wouldn't be offended is you guessed a gender writing that and got it wrong. They'd either not care or let you know the correct one.
Good topic for discussion!
You have a very good point! There are several Goverment enforced regualtions, such as COPPA (Child On Line Privacy Act) I have my own websites and I have to follow those regulations also. COPPA is a great safety feature
