How do you prefer to be described?
He edits wiki pages
She edits wiki pages

/ Proposed /
When you do things on the site that you want other people to know about, we say something like 'Sam replied to you on his talk page' or 'You thanked Janet for her edits' how would you like the site to describe your actions?
They edit their wiki sandbox (They/Their)
She edits her wiki sandbox (She/Her/Hers)
He edits his wiki sandbox (He/Him/His)
With the default selection being They/Their
