Missing profile data?

39 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've been a member here for a while now but when I logged in this time I was asked to complete missing profile data before I could proceed, notably my date of birth. When I signed up I entered this, so it appears to have been deleted or lost.

I just thought I'd mention it in case there was a problem ;)

There was a minor debate on here the other day as to the gender of a regular poster - the profile leads to a WG website but someone said that is a wind-up and the poster concerned is male. Maybe that caused the change we're all experiencing...although, as Kinky says, depending on how (s)he answers the question we may be none the wiser anyway.

Ahh thanks guys. Gender was the other question I needed to answer.

I'm glad it wasn't a problem with my account, it makes no difference to me anyway and I think it's good idea to have that stated on a forum like this ;)

Have you noticed that there's a little Gender icon by your name now?

Yours might but an increasing number of members here have androgenous usernames and so we took the decision to add that requirement.

Clearly people can lie and we will not be taking names and kicking tyres on it, but it does help people in some cases to know that.

There you go, I posted it simultaneously with your query.

I do hope my reply made you a little more enlightened.

I've done mine, however it did worry me when I first saw it, was it some sort of identity theft thing?

One of the questions puzzled me slightly.

What is the capital of England. ;):confused:

FFS James, I thought that you guys both modelled yourselves on Fred Housgoe and also did "the knowledge".............................

It's a human verification question, to make sure you are not a spambot.

The punting capital would be MK apparently. WG's/population, it must be the best ratio for punters.

I must admit I thought one poster was female by name, but male by post content.

Is that a non-PC term for someone with large buttocks? ;)
