Gender based colours on avatars


#1

Hi!

I’m searching for the way to tag user avatar base on gender.
For example male avatars will have blue background and female pink one. Does anyone tried to do that?
Thanks!

I suspect this wouldn’t be very common as it is fraught with potential… difficulties. For instance I wouldn’t like to have a pink background on my avatar and I’d be upset if I was forced to do so.

That said, it’s your community and your decision!

Do you collect gender information at registration?

I think it might better to add the distinction by using icons near their names or maybe avatar “flairs”.

For me at least, for members that have the default avatars, I use the background color to help in identifying different members.

For example, Lex and Luther might be L green and L yellow. If both were L blue, I could not as easily tell the difference.

I think you could allow people to join groups that would style their avatar.
