Although the URLs are useful, [https://chat.indieweb.org/microformats/2018-08-19#t1534705418184500 a simple name:url pair] would increase the usefulness.

** Possibly something like <code>.[up]-pronoun.h-pronoun > .u-url</code> paired with <code>.[up]-pronoun.h-pronoun > .p-name</code>. [[h-cite]] would be prior art as also expressing “a reference to <i>[something]</i> in some way with name and url”. [https://chat.indieweb.org/microformats/2018-08-19/1534705492641900]

This page is for brainstorming about various uses, details of, and additions to h-card.

This page contains proposals. For the current state please see h-card.

Contents

Brainstorm proposals that illustrate how to use the existing hCard spec will likely be incorporated into existing hCard documentation such as:

Pronouns

Ashton McAllan marks up her pronouns as:

<span class="p-x-pronoun-nominative">she</span> / 
<span class="p-x-pronoun-oblique">her</span> / 
<span class="p-x-pronoun-posessive">hers</span>

in her h-card on http://acegiak.net/

Each pronoun is listed individually with it's form allowing parsers and programs to identify them for different uses. Other languages may include different forms of pronoun. This solution is suggested after reading the Wikipedia Personal Pronouns article


gRegor Morrill marks up his pronouns similarly (note corrected spelling of "possessive"):

<p>Pronouns: <span class="p-x-pronoun-nominative">he</span>/
<span class="p-x-pronoun-oblique">him</span>/
<span class="p-x-pronoun-possessive">his</span></p>

on http://gregorlove.com/about/

Martijn van der Ven marks up his pronouns (more clearly on his gender page) using only a dictionary URL:

<p>
  I use male pronouns (
  <a href="https://nl.wiktionary.org/wiki/hij#Persoonlijk_voornaamwoord" lang="nl" class="u-pronoun">hij</a>,
  <a href="https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/han#Pronomen" lang="sv" class="u-pronoun">han</a>,
  <a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/he#Pronoun" class="u-pronoun">he</a>,
  <a href="https://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/er#Personalpronomen" lang="de" class="u-pronoun">er</a>
  ) but also accept gender-neutral pronouns (
  <a href="https://sv.wiktionary.org/wiki/hen#Pronomen" lang="sv" class="u-pronoun">hen</a>,
  <a href="https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/they#Pronoun" class="u-pronoun">they</a>
  ). If you are writing about me and are in doubt: ask.
</p>

Other Platforms

A GitHub issue about adding pronoun fields to Mastodon was discussed in #microformats on 2018-08-19. The comments in the issue bring up some points previously brought up by Martijn in regards to how useful it would be for machines. Also includes interesting survey data showing that just listing the minimal amount of cases does not show all inflections, e.g. does “ne/nim” refer to “ne/nem/neir/neirs/nemself” or “ne/nem/nayr/nayrs/nemself”?
