Names And Pronouns

Hey all,

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.

Thanks all!

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.)

OOC Name I would like you to call me: Brandon
IC Name I would like you to call me: Dr. Yellowstone Grintner Swahn, Yellowstone, Dr. Grintner, Dr. Swahn are all acceptable. I've noticed people have taken to switching between "Dr. Swahn" and "Dr. Grintner" depending on how much they agree with what I'm saying at the moment. This delights me, you may continue.
OOC Pronouns I would like you to use: he/him/his (they/them/theirs acceptable but not how I identify.)

Hi friends, and thanks for this Rhiannon! Brilliant idea.

OOC name I'd like you to call me: Storey

IC name(s) I'd like you to call me: Tobi or Dr. Lancaster, Ray (or insults as they definitely deserve it), Kavita, Trinket; depends on character I'm out as of course.

OOC Pronouns I'd like you to use: she/her/hers

Tobi's pronouns: they/them/theirs.
Ray's pronouns: any of the primary three, but they/them/theirs is most accurate. It/its is also applicable as an insult. None of these will make me uncomfortable - switch around or stick to one. Your choice.
Kavita's pronouns: she/her/hers.
Trinket's pronouns: they/them/theirs out of VR, she/her/hers in VR.

OOC Name I would like you to call me: Lee
IC Name I would like you to call me: Basil

Intended pronunciation of Basil is bay-zul, but mistakes there (e.g. bah-zul) don't bother me and will be taken IC. IG nicknames are fine too (e.g. "serf"); I would clarify with you if you start using a nickname that OOG bothers me.

OOC pronouns I would like you to use: they/them/their
IC Pronouns I would like you to use: they/them/their

Hi there!

OOC Name: Josh. Not Joshua, please. If there are multiple Josh’s in a room, I’m fine with being called JB to distinguish between us, and went by it for years among my friend group as a kid where my best friend went by Josh J.
OOC/IC Pronouns: He/Him/His. They/them/theirs is fine but not first choice.
