    Default the sandbox

    When I tested a template (which epically failed, and was somehow created twice) at the top it said WHAT ARE YOU, <MY USERNAME IN ALL CAPS>!? and then a picture of Ditto's Sugimori Artwork. Is it the site, or is someone insulting me? And how do I change or stop that, because I am a boy, and I don't wanna be called an "it" by someone or something in the sandbox.

    Set your gender in your preferences.

    IIRC, that sentence was a test of the gender-determining code in mediawiki (which I believe is used by a few userboxes).
    Thanks Jo The Marten for the avatar.
    Demons run when a good man goes to war.
    Night will fall and drown the sun,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Friendship dies and true love lies,
    night will fall and the dark will rise,
    when a good man goes to war.
    Demons run, but count the cost.
    The battle's won, but the child is lost.

    On that note, there are only two genders available in the preferences.

    MediaWiki recognises only "male" and "female". We don't seem to be able to add variables. If you identify as another gender, then leave it blank.
