Our community members have often asked for a a way to not display their avatar gender on their avatar/profile cards. We have just implemented a change to allow you to do that!

Effective immediately, you may choose to display or not display your avatar gender under Account Settings using the menu option under Avatar Cards:



As a reminder, everyone can switch genders on their account (male versus female) under the Account Settings option as well.



Any features such as people search, default categories shown in the Shop etc will continue to use the gender that is currently selected by you under Account Settings. Today's change simply allows you to not display your selection on your profile cards - both on the website and client.

Thank you.

Staff Update page 3

Oh this is good! ^^

Could this checkbox get rid of the slash / before the age? just an estethic idea as the slash does nothing there without the gender and looks bad.

Would it be possible to have a different colored text for those who hide there gender? Otherwise it is still obvious which gender you have chosen.

This is a step in the right Direction, but again, is the IMVU way of making it still not right. As was posted in another section, why cant IMVU add transgendered to the choices of gender, instead of forcing it to be hid. By hiding the gender, it still leaves the question, is this a male hiding as a female or viceversa. by adding TG to the choices, or 3rd Gender, or even Other.. it leaves no doubt that there is something different on the gender choices.

Isn't the colored text randomly assigned when an avatar enters chat, regardless of gender? I've never noticed a difference.

That is one of the greatest ideas I've heard in a long time.

Not so happy about this feature... Just because it ruins the guy only rooms or girl only rooms AND groups, omg.... SIGH

Also, just wanted to test arround with it..

Why does it say ''Female'' on the roomcard im in when I hide my gender?

I'm not talking about in chat. I mean when you click on a person's avatar card in client. Those who select "Female" get pink text for the tagline, and those who select "Male" get blue text for the tagline.

Why hiding the gender ? Hiding age ? That sorta i can understand. Hiding sexual oriëntation, sure. But gender ? Whats the point of a profile card, with no profile on it ? Its like a blanco ID card. I like to see with who i deal with. I expect huge problems in guys only / girls only rooms like someone stated before. I always avoid people who ( try ) contact me with their age hidden, now i can add non-gender to that list too.

Yes, and unless they change that, this "change" is in effect useless.

^ Pretty much.
Even though it seems kind of pointless based off of Alba's screenshot.
Why? Her tagline is clearly pink, so I know she is a girl - gender showing or not.
They should make taglines gray or some other neutral colour if someone has their gender hidden.

I don't think I'll be hiding mine. I am pretty sure it is apparent that I am female.

If you hide your gender, the room cards will display the gender as "hidden".

Thank you
