Minor complaint, but can't help but wonder if the gender icon on the information thing beside every post is really necessary?

Anyway, you're just walking around with these teeth in your vagina and you think it's normal cos like, who do you ask about that shit? Then, one day you go to have sex with someone & they're all "WHY DOES YOUR VAGINA HAVE A TOOTH IN IT?" That'd be damn awkward.

I'd wondered about that, too. The only reason I can think of as to why it would be there is for ease of pronouns when new people refer to someone's post or something, but the blue and pink/mars and venus thing seems a little awkward. Reminds me of baby clothing stores.

It does seem weird for a queer/queer-friendly space. I don't know if we have any gender-queer users, but it's a strange thing to have when we're so aware of the possibility. Also, yeah, pink and blue? Let's not....

it was actually something I noticed and researched a bit to see if there was an admin option to turn it off, but the info I found was complex - that there is no option, rather a series of coding that needs to be changed. We aren't sticking with SMF indefinitely, as mentioned in this thread, we'll be switching to vBulletin soon, so I don't think it's necessary to put extra work coding something that won't be here much longer, so in the mean time if you are uncomfortable with it for your profile please go to your profile settings and remove it there.

Done :) Didn't realise you could do that, I much prefer it now.

Thanks, Sean. I don't know the backend details, obviously, but I don't doubt that things can get hairy really quickly, even when you are careful. Being able to hack through all that stuff and salvage something usable is no small feat. Good job, and good luck executing the rest of your plan. :)

I'm wondering if the Grand Theft Orchestra should be added to the header on the Box. Michael, Chad and Jherek are part of the family now.

However, Amanda did call this the "Dresden Dolls" forum several times in the Storywheel interview. Is there some thought that the GTO will have its own forum?
