Forum addition request: "Device" field in user profile

I think it would be very useful for people (mostly developers but regular users could be interested as well) if there would be a "Device" field in the user profile, preferrably beneath the post count and location, so that it's always visible.

Users could, for example, enter that they have a 1st generation iPod Touch, 8GB. When discussing problems, developers don't have to ask for this.

An additional improvement could be a gender choice, so that people can see if a user is male or female if that's not immediately clear from the username.

The Device field could be problematic if a user or dev has multiple iDevices.

A device field would be nice, but I don't think necessary. Male/Female is something which I would also want because that way I would know how to address someone when writing a post.

I hope your not serious, cause that's completely wrong. I bet you there are many more girls here than you think.

slow down on the spam I've been here several months( and more before joining) and you have more posts than me.

Beta tested: Parallelus, Galactic Gunner, Crazy Snowboard, IMO

The stats could be right but still the females that DO post on TouchArcade are often quality members.
