Just a thinking out loud again - but when creating a new pet, it would be nice if the gender was automatically set to neutral NOT female because occasionally one is created without remembering to set gender. Example is RugbyPowderTims, a special memory pet, who was (IS) a male. But oops I forgot to reset the gender and HE'S listed as a SHE. Not a very happy camper is HE - about the oops OR with ME! smile_laugh.gif

Would solve everything, though to start out the gender setting as neutral, then any mistake would be an easier one with which to deal.

Or, maybe we can get the option to change their gender ONCE within 24 hours of creating them, in case such a mistake occurs?

Same thing nearly happened with my pet, too. Neutral is a good default setting.

@Gladion Yes, THAT would be a WONDERFUL option! Or the neutral default setting...

I like this idea but I’m worried about what happens when someone doesn’t want their pet to be neutral and they do this as well. Perhaps, while being a little more cumbersome, there could be a separate page for choosing per species and color from gender.

@RiverStarr Good point. There's many sides to every issue, isn't there? I'm just trying to save for a pet gender change for RugbyPowderTims...poor baby.

Hope you're having a stupendous Holiday!!!!!!!! smile_heart.gif

I think neutral is a safer "mistake," though. It's like being on the middle of the axis instead of at the totally wrong poll. Accidentally choosing neutral is the same problem as accidentally choosing male or female--the accidental part smile_tongue.gif So I do think that's not a bad idea.

Here is the node, you who hate change and fear revolution. Keep these two squatting men apart; make them hate, fear, suspect each other. Here is the anlage of the thing you fear. This is the zygote. For here "I have lost my land" is changed; a cell is split and from its splitting grows the thing you hate—"We lost our land." The danger is here, for two men are not as lonely and perplexed as one. And from this first "we" there grows a still more dangerous thing: "I have a little food" plus "I have none." If from this problem the sum is "We have a little food," the thing is on its way, the movement has direction.

@Megrim Me, too. RugbyPowderTims would rather be neutral that an ooops-i'm-not-a-girl mom error.

I'd rather see a confirmation pop-up outlining your choices ("You are creating [Name] the [Colour][Gender][Species]" ), where you can continue or cancel.

You could start with it's gender being neutral, then use some kind of gender changing items for each gender?

@GummyBear67 Right now there's a pet gender change available in the Ice Shop. I'm saving for that right now. It would be nice, however, if there were some sort of safety to avoid mistakes when creating pets.
