Hey there Wolfhome!

The Wolfhome Administration is pleased to announce a new forum profile feature! This feature allows you to enable badges, or flairs, in your Forum Profile. To find it, go to your User Control Panel, then go to Profile, then select Manage Profile Flair.

For Pride month, we wanted to do our best to provide flags for our community. We have done our best to include a wide variety of flags. However, if you see that we have neglected an important flag and would like for it to be included, please message a Forum Admin / Moderator and provide a link to the SVG file for this flag and we will do our best to add it in! Additionally, if you see an error in any definitions please send us a PM! In the future, these flairs will not be limited to this purpose, but it was important to us to make this available to our community as quickly as possible.

We hope you all have a safe, and lovely pride month!

i know it says "important flags" but what about flags that had proposed revisions ie. a new bisexual flag, a new gay flag? they've floated around twitter and i was curious what you guys think about that

That is a great question!

I posted the final draft of this at 1am, so I probably shouldn't have used the word "important." What I meant to say was perhaps the centrally traditional set of flags.

As for new versions of traditional flags I suspect we're gonna have to decide it as a community. We have already had to make some last minute calls such as using the Community Lesbian flag instead of the Traditional Lesbian flag (which comes with baggage). If any selections are ignorant or harmful there's no one who would argue with updating them or removing them ASAP. We can't add every flag that is used by every individual, but if there are flags that are becoming mainstream in the community and you feel confident are widely used then by all means propose a substitution or addition! We're chat site admins, we have no authority to make decisions about the validity of identities or genders, though there are of course always going to be resource constraints on how many flags we can add. We have the sensitivity and communication skills as a community to talk about changes or additions and decide what changes are the most important, IMO! I don't see any harm in discussing proposed additions in this thread if you have a suggestion you feel might be contentious. (Though that's just my opinion, and I am on hiatus, so if the rest of the team have a better suggestion for managing these convos I defer to their expertise!)

We can definitely use it for other applications, as well as having multiple groups of flairs with different requirements, perms, etc.
