IMPORTANT PREFACE FROM STAFF: IMPORTANT NOTE: this is sitting in the main board, which is publicly viewable, don't accidentally out yourself if you don't mean to.
In an attempt to help out the non-cis members of our community and create a welcoming environment, I wanted to start this thread to allow people to share how they would like to be identified by other players/staff. I still see some misgendering going on, especially towards a few individuals, and I'd like to stop that.
To that end, IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, please post here with your IC name, OOC name, and pronouns for each. Staff, if you want to name a face character or just leave it to your OOC name, that's fine. Remember that nobody's is forced to out themselves, so if you want to use a set of indentifiers that aren't technically correct but how you are choosing to be called in this space, please feel welcome to do so.
Also, when writing or speaking about anyone, especially if you don't know them personally, PLEASE check this list first to ensure you are identifying them appropriately.
Please use the following format.
OOC Name I would like you to call me: Rhiannon or Rhichi, Rhi for friends
IC Name I would like you to call me: Siadona, Sia, or Dr. Briggs (nicknames like "Doc" are also fine)
OOC Pronouns I would like you to use: She/her/hers (they/them/theirs acceptable but not how I identify.)
IC Pronouns I would like you to use: She/her/hers (they/them/theirs acceptable but not how I identify.)
