I'm not an admin, but I was able to add a Personal Text entry in the options and save it with no problem.† What specifically are you trying to update?

I am trying to specify my gender in settings.
Whatever I try to change - this message comes out. So that I don't change whether age is always this message

I was able to save a gender setting.  Possibly a browser issue?

yeah - try logging out of the site, shutting the browser down.
starting the browser back up and logging into the site again.

That usually fixes most of these issues.

And before anyone asks - we're not adding any extra 'genders'.

CA that's not the kind of comment I was expecting to hear from you.
I am pretty sure we are all guys on here currently but in the event that someone is on a different wavelength, I would want them to feel comfortable being themselves around us.
I'm not saying add 72 other options but adding a non binary option would be a kindness and more.

lol - and there we have a knee jerk response.

I'm not adding random genders - for a number of reasons.

1) I can't.

2) there are only three human genders and genuine, medical† hermaphrodites are so rare, I've never seen the option on any form.

3) be what the hell you like - it won't change the forum software Smiley

Fair enough that you can't change it but that isn't true. Gender is not binary or even tertiary.

personal perception is variable.
Human BIOLOGICAL gender is fixed in your genetic code.

Now you can argue that an xyy could be categorised as a different gender - but as xyy folk tend to be ultra male - they'd no doubt argue that you were talking out of your arse and looking for a punch up the bracket.

Not sure if you get xxx at all - but generally most people are either xy male or xx female.

Everything else is sociological, and down to personal perception.

Sexual preference is NOT gender.

Thereís a lot to lose. This is a divisive issue. Iím not sure we even need to bother with†stating a gender at all when the forum canít seem to keep any female members for more than a few days anyway. Everyone here is a male... but sex or gender or preference or whatever you want to quibble over is completely irrelevant to slinging. Why are we even having this discussion?†

I can't see a single thing that could possibly be lost.
