Hi TWF staff. I just notice the profiles in each post. For male member it will say They have: # posts, while for female members like Megan it says She has: # posts, where # indicates number of posts. Whys use They have: instead of He has:?

The forum uses 'They' when the gender isn't set in the profile. Click on My Account, and then the Edit tab. The gender setting is under the Personal page.

So, obviously, if someone doesn't specify gender, they are "they"

Ok, its clear now. Smiling, I think it is much better to show gender in registration form.
