I think an option when you start to choose whether Male or Female should be implemented because at the moment what if you are a female but have the status of Lord Of The House it doesnt seem right and i am sure the female players would prefer it to be Lady of the House. Already existing players can go to the service page and choose and then it cant be change again.

i agree
either that, or rename the ranks slightly to be genderless

such as Leader of the House


i know it's a bit lamer than Lord... but it would be a hell of a lot easier to implement - 1 minute rather than 10

i agree that it would be good to implement something in consideration of gender. i have messaged some players assuming they were a male, and were a little offended of having to correct me that they were infact female.

I would prefer that. In Fact i had to correct some players writing me and it is irritating to read "Lord" The game seems to be designed for only men Wink *G*

I agree with this idea. It is quite cumbersome to make sure all imperator-specific messages are non-gendered, to not offend any people.

Nice idea (has been requested in kosmor.de years ago by lebia - if I remember that right).
I added the request to the list of "wannahaves". It will take a little bit longer than 10 minutes, though, because we also have to handle the correctness of GPU-messages, example (galactic news):
Lady XY changed her name to YZ, because she was not very content with her former name.

Bye,
Maelstroem

PS: Maybe the pink house colors for the girls Wink Sorry, no offense.

oki... 11 minutes Razz
just wondering...
is the "code" for .com and .de the same (or virtually), with the languages being pulled in from language files...
or, are all the words hard coded into the code?

alpha: the web frontend has language files (of course), because it has lots of text.
The gpu has hardcoded strings, which is not soo bad here, as the gender handling would need code (or special templates) anyway.

Cool! Shocked
So, when the Lady of the house tells her orders to her subs, she will go like: "Build many from the Pink ships and not so many from the Red ones and Yellow ones..." Very Happy

yellow ones are for people who aren't quite sure if they're male or female?
