@Purodha: Could you please elaborate why this needs gender support?
Which word in the message would change depending on gender?

I don't know a language where it would be required, but I guess that the parameter on which it may require gender flexions is %{username}, if any gender is attached to this user. Maybe there are languages that may introduce it with a preposition which change depending on %{username} gender…

@ Psychoslave - you are right,

Which word in the message would change depending on gender?

In Colognian (and some other Germanic languages) you must have an article with %{username} which depends on its grammatical gender.
