    I have quite a few scars, but these are the ones I am proudest of.

    Scar 1: Lower Chin, Skateboarding down a hill that was crowned inward. Speed wobbles start going like crazy and before I can formulate an escape plan I am flying head first into the asphalt. I managed to get my hand out and reduce the impact force a bit in exchange for a chunk of skin, but my face still plowed into the ground chin first. I remember my first thought was "oh shit, my teeth" and reach up to make sure they are all there, my hand came back covered in blood. I grabbed my board and headed back to my girlfriends house. Oh the look on her face when she answered the door. Get myself to a mirror, and realize that a sizable chunk of my chin is just gone. Off to ER for stitches, great doc did three layers of 8 stitches to put my chin back together, about an inch long scar is all that remains. I also had a basil skull fracture and hairline fracture in my lower jaw which kept me in the hospital for a day or so, I will never forget being given a roast beef sandwich which I had no hope of being able to eat.

    Scar 2: This scar is known as the "Ministry Dentistry" event. Went to see Ministry on their farewell tour, I had seen them before but this would be the first time where I wasn't also working. Show starts up and after a couple of songs I fling myself into the mosh pit. Having a grand time smashing and bouncing around. Suddenly everyone in front of me is splitting away, and before I have time to react a large bald head comes charging through the crowd. His head smashes into the left side of my face, everything goes numb. I get back up and flounder to the edge of the crowd, I am getting intense looks as I push through the crowd. Head to the bathroom, and the entire left side of my face is just splattered in blood. There is a large laceration just under my left eye. check my teeth and realize that 2 of my crowns are broken in half (ya for root canals! no pain!). Try to go back to the show, but it is clear I need to go get stitches. Spend the rest of night in ER waiting to get stitched up, 10 stitches in all and a beautiful crescent moon scar under my eye.

    I also dislike this option, and very nearly stopped the account creation process when I hit the 'male' OR 'female' dichotomy. Forcing your users to select a binary sex identifier to gender their avatars is simply not an inclusive policy. I also think it runs counter-intuitive to the mission statement.

    From the Snapzu Mission Statement (emphasis added):

    With our "gamified" (for lack of a better word) approach, we give all new members the ability to establish an identity based on their online actions, shares and creative works, instead of who they are away from keyboard.

    By forcing me to select 'male' OR 'female' I have already lost some control over creating that online identity.

    The reasoning behind this apparently necessary classification is to quote DrunkenNinja and my own interpretation:

    created at a substantial cost

    Graphics are expensive and we really want avatars that level, so we have to limit the types of avatars available

    The male or female question has nothing to do with anything but that simple choice of the avatar style, just like if you were to create a character in an online game, ie. WoW, for example.

    This is how the dev team views gender and is an appeal to tradition and generally not a good reason to just keep doing it the way it has been done

    I get it, you want leveled avatars and you don't have the budget to make an avatar for every possible gender expression, I respect that because there are a lot of gender expressions in the world and it wouldn't be feasible to cover them all.

    At the very least, remove the 'male' / 'female' language and replace it with 'masculine' OR 'feminine' which is a better match for the choice of gender anyway.

    I would hope you could look into making a gender neutral avatar.

    I would be ecstatic if we had customized avatars so I can have actual control of the creation of my online identity.
