That's what avatars are for. Just take a selfie and put it in as your avatar.

Then I have to ask,
Why are you on here ?
As someone else has already mentioned to you more than once, put some reference to the fact that you are a female like maybe a picture of some sort, even if it is not you.

Until our society finds and generally adopts a gender neutral set of pronouns (yes, I am aware some have been suggested, none generally adopted), as you know, the default is the male set for unknown predicates.

Helping us out with a gender indicator in username, avatar, or signature would go along way to us knowing you are a her and not an unknown.

We're all for using the correct pronoun, but there needs to be some way for us to know...

Fair 'nuff?

Peace,
Tom

As I communicated before on other threads there is nothing in your user name or profile to give anyone a clue as to what you are.

that is because when in other forums guys instead of answering questions from women ask them personal information and things like that.

That's unfortunate. But I doubt that's an issue here. Or at least hope not. Maybe make your avatar here something that makes it obvious for the majority of people here that don't know.

Umm.... So all conversations would be:
SeaBeagle: Comment, yada, yada
Person A: SeaBeagle, before I respond, I need to know, are you male, female, or prefer another pronoun set?
SeaBeagle: Thanks for asking, female.
Person A: Thanks. now I can respond to your original post....
She said her stuff yada, yada, yada,

Or using Inkahauts:
inkahauts: I'm in favor of this, that, and da other.
Person B: inky, be ye dude or dudette?
inkahauts: can't you tell?
Person B: No
Person C: No
inkahauts: Dude
Person D: No (he or she was late to the game...)
Person B: Cool, now what was the comment?
Is that how it goes on other forums? I've never seen it, but I suppose it could happen. :)

Still think it would be simpler to put a gender identifying item in the name, the avatar, or signature.

Peace,
Tom

There is a button that you can push if you think someone who knows your gender is being inappropriate. Use it, I do if someone says something inappropriate to me.

But you can't complain if someone who doesn't know what gender you are assumes you are male unless YOU take some steps that assure everybody what you are. I think.

Therein lies the problem. My Dell printer, which has been a workhorse and a very reliable machine, has no drivers for Windows 10. Until that machine can fully work in 10, I will not upgrade.
If the Dell printer is no longer supported by Dell, don't expect MS to come up with a driver.

Then you have your choice ... either make a display profile change that gives a hint of a gender or cut the entire rest of the world slack when they assume the wrong gender for you. One cannot ask to remain anonymous in gender then complain when people get it wrong.

(And if you get "personal questions" report the posts or PMs and moderators will take action where needed.)

That being said ... moving on.

Someone in a totally unrelated forum I participate in was taking a poll to reach a consensus on pronouns to use when addressing certain LGBT gender variants which I thought was silly. If I were ever in a social situation in which some people were thin skinned, I'd just make liberal use of I, you, it, we, they, us and them.

OK, I've gone into the "Update" function and told our computers to proceed to download and install the upgrade to Windows 10 Pro that is somehow described as version 1511, 10586 which I guess is a beefed up version of what they used to call a service pack. It appears that many things that didn't run properly or would crash intermittently now work. But the upgrade download process on a regular work day took too long and because of computer use and reboots would always show as failed.

There were two updates for Windows 10 Pro this month. Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 (KB3118754) and (KB3120677).

My work pc would never see the update. I just ran the latest universal mediacreationtool.exe to upgrade my 10240 to 10586. Upgraded without a hitch. There for some time Microsoft pulled the tool, but since then restored it. I already had it backed up from running it on my windows 8.1 laptop for the upgrade anyway. If your media creation tool specifies a 32-bit or 64-bit version then your likely pulling the original Win 10.
