Thanks teor.

Yup, all information on the page is optional *but* it's consistently
collected. My ask here wasn't that it must be listed for everyone but
that we should collect them in the same way as the other information.
Which is to say reach out individually to everyone on the page to ask
if and what pronoun they'd prefer.

Interesting. I suspect in our community he/she/they will be enough but
interesting to know there are things like 'eir'.

Seems there are iconographic options, but on reflection it probably
would indeed be better to just spell it out along with irc nicks.
