Pronoun & Timezone Spreadsheet

Post by madge »

I miss the old forum's post with pronouns, decided to make it into a spreadsheet on google forms (yes i know google is evil but it means nobody has to do any work).

Here's the spreadsheet for reference: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Here's the form where you can submit your data: https://forms.gle/NrifkRQM16cGcNdR9

You should be able to resubmit your data if you decide to change pronouns or move to another timezone or think of notes later on.

I added timezone as for some games it's useful to know if the others are likely to be awake.

Notes section is for anything you want. Maybe your pronouns are she/her but you don't want to be addressed as "ladies"? Maybe everyone pronounces your username wrong? IDK.

Let me know if I've made any mistakes with terminology or am missing something vitally important from the form! I am always happy to learn.

fyi, there was some earlier discussion for a pronouns thread.

Personally, I'm in favour of this thread? Timezones are good to know and not many people have them listed in sigs (actually, same for pronouns), and there's already been some accidental misgendering in the halloween mafia thread. Some people may also want to have their pronouns easily available but not want them in their sig or not want a sig (which seems to include two people in the linked thread).
unemlightened. they/them.

Oh whoops. I did not notice! Sorry.

Regardless I like having the list, it makes things easier. IDK.

@Madge - you might want to make timezones location based rather than strict UTC+X because summer time/daylight savings etc - otherwise many players will have to update them twice a year! E.g. I'm UTC+1 currently, but will be UTC+0 by the end of the month.

If you do it location-based then there's like a bazillion locations and i figure people might not be keen to share their location but the timezone is less identifiable.

I figure that DST doesn't make that much of a difference, because sleep schedules vary more than that, and I hope people know the purpose is less to be able to tell someone "4pm" but more for people playing mafia to work out who might be online or who might not be based on typical sleep/work patterns.

idk. i might be biased, as i live in a non-DST jurisidiction.
