Is it just me? Maybe it shouldn''t matter what gender wikis are (of course it doesn''t) but I find myself flummoxed when people use names or photos that suggest one thing and then read the posts and realise they are another!

Or maybe I am just easily confused at the moment!

Haway is probably the best one for sorting out gender issues - they are topical with him at the moment. Apparently he has just come back from Thailand where he found himself in an ''interesting'' situation !

See his recent post if you haven''t already ! LOL

It''s not just you, Eliza - I''ve done that many times myself :blush: Sometimes people do use usernames that don''t make clear if the owner is male or female - for ages I used to think that Mitchum was man...

PS - you are a man,right? :silly:

Oh dear, think I fall into this category, ;)

My avatar does not display my gender, just my hopes for "my" acceptable toy boy, should he ever pop into wiki :laugh:

NWTT.:dry:

If you look at the "online" list of members - on the community page, to the left of the posts, there is a little pink or blue icon next to each username, indicating if they are male or female. And each member''s profile page also states their gender.

Yes, thanks, I keep doing that when I realise with a shock that I was thinking the wrong thing!
