      Not a big concern but considering the number of mixed gender bands (and in our case, couples)that have profiles shouldn't there be more than just "male" and "female" as options for gender?  We tried leaving that section blank, but it seems that isn't an option either. I'm guessing there are also a few gender neutral or "it's complicated"s among the members as well. Not looking to be politically correct (horrors!), just looking for more accuracy. Because we're librarians and metadata mattersWink.

      That's a good point. What are some other options that should be made available you suppose?

      If we knew what the data was being used for, that would help.  However here are some to consider

      - Mixed group or couple

      - None of the above/Other (maybe offer a write-in option)

      - None of your business

       

      In the spirit of the site these could be re-worded to

      - Dynamic Duo, Lux & Ivy, etc.

      - Manson Family, Mamas and Papas, Chicks & Dicks, etc

      - What does gender mean?

      - Piss off!

      The Band/Artist Profile Type no longer asks for a gender. I don't believe that was an option back in September, which is probably why you encountered it.

      Sorry, just trying to catch up on all of these support requests...
