    I don't know how feasible this is because I don't know much about Zenforo. That said, per the screenshot, has there been consideration into replacing "his/her" with "their" for notifications when someone adds an entry to their blog?

    "Their" would likely be viewed as a much more gender-neutral term and also would look/read cleaner, in my opinion.

    I feel like it should be determined by whatever gender they have set on their profile, and (unspecified) would use "their"

    This has been brought up before (Can't remember the thread or remember the conclusion of it!) and basically yeah I agree with @Dionicio3, it should use your profile gender to choose the pronoun and relapse to "their" if you didnt specify one, then everyone is happy!

    It would be nice but it's not that easy. I'll change it to "their" for now as it's totally inclusive.

    Can we also change the logo of GBAtemp since it's not inclusive?

    Thanks shaun! I know not everyone is comfortable being referred to as him/her and hope that this helps them have a tiny bit better of an experience here :)
