Gender Categories (Poll)

Gender categories have now been added to the wiki. if you have any problems or need any help please leave a note on my message wall.

Hello again editors and moviestars. I recently deleted the page for a category that didn't belong on the wiki, however it did get me thinking about adding some new categories to our moviestar pages. Those categories are for gender. Though before adding it in I of course wanted to get the communities thoughts in on it.
This update would include two new categories, Female and Male. They'd work just like the other categories. However do note that the gender would be based on the avatars gender. So if the moviestar is a female using a male avatar the category on that page will be male. Though you could still note t…

MovieStarPlanet Wiki Twitter (Poll)

The MSP wiki twitter account is here to stay! If you feel there are any problems with it please leave a post on my message wall thank you! Hello there fellow editors and MSPers.
Some of you may have noticed I recently created a twitter account for this wiki. The account is intended to be used as a way to spread the word about the wiki, wiki updates, and offical MSP news(this means there will not be news regarding moviestars).
I (SnowGem) will be running the account solely for now. However the communities words will always be put in when fitting.

I know a lot of moviestars have twitter accounts and that following a stream of updates could be very useful. However it is also going to be used on the main page of the wiki so for those of you who do …

Pages for inactive moviestars

Notice:This feature has already been implemented. See more information here.

Hello everyone!
So I'm just going to get right into it. This is a subject I've been thinking on for quite a while.

As I'm sure many of you have noticed before some of the articles on our wiki showcase inactive users. Now being inactive or deleted is okay in normal cases however a lot of those articles are stubs that can't really be further expanded due to the user being inactive.

Before I even get into possible solutions I need some basic feedback .
If you could please take the time to vote in the poll below it would be a big help.

Don't think too much on your vote. I've already come up with things to go further on them.
Try to vote solely on whether or not you think the…

"In relationship with" rather than "boyfriend" or "girlfriend"

Hello fellow editiors, today I'm going to talk about an issue with have with our infoboxes. I've noticed this a while ago but it's taken me some time to come up with something better to say.

We have "boyfriend" or "girlfriend" on most of our infoboxes, this is an issue because we base that off the gender of the moviestar. Some moviestars may want to date the same gender and it's unfair to assume their sexual orientation. 
I realize some of you may not be in full support of different types of sexual orientations, but like with other things your personal opinion doesn't belong on the wiki page.

From now on I ask you put "In relationship with" rather than "Boyfriend" or "Girlfriend".

Also don't put "single" put "no one" not only does it sound bet…
