TikiWiki stores personal data about it's users. Besides (!) the GDPR issues, there ia a VERY vulnerable situation for Tiki site admins:
The user preferences only know these three settings:
According to a ruling of Germany's supreme court from last year, that constitutes discrimination, and entitles every user to sue the administrator (and win).
The German supreme court has ruled, that the law that defines the standards of record keeping by the government collides with the German constitution and therefore MUST be changed, so that every German citizen may be either
Diverse is a bracket that includes all of the LGBT etc. in one label. This means that if any German citizen so chooses, he or she will be issued a new ID card or passport, where D will be written under gender.
If someone operating an IT system that forces users to enter either M or F, and does not have a selection D, this constitutes discrimination, and entitles the discriminated person to sue. And winning the suit would be a piece of cake.
Now the question arises "is this relevant"? People can choose "hide". Yes. Well, if a citizen opts to change his or her official record (they have to officially file a request to do so) in the German administration and request to get new ID card or passport, how likely will it be that such a person does not care if an IT system forces him or her to be labelled M or F? Highly unlikely, I think.
So to protect TikiWiki admins, you should as soon as possible introduce Diverse as third gender. And in the long run, because other countries supreme courts might not choose "diverse" as a bracket and include the full LGBT etc. list, gender should become a configurable and expandable entity. The number of legally correct gender entries may vary from country to country, so do not stick to 2 or 3...
And just before anyone asks this: It's not about me. I do not need a D in the database, but I want my users to make such a choice for themselves (and be protected if anyone might want to make a case on this).
P.S: I believe there is no need to demo this, it's plain to see that TikiWiki only knows M, F and hidden.

Unable to connect to show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is currently under maintenance. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Unable to get information from show2.tikiwiki.org. Please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
Show.tiki.org is in the progress of creating the new instance. Please continue waiting for a minute or two. If this continues on for more than 10 minutes, please let us know of the problem so that we can do something about it. Thanks.
To help developers solve the bug, we kindly request that you demonstrate your bug on a show2.tikiwiki.org instance. To start, simply select a version and click on "Create show2.tikiwiki.org instance". Once the instance is ready (in a minute or two), as indicated in the status window below, you can then access that instance, login (the initial admin username/password is "admin") and configure the Tiki to demonstrate your bug. Priority will be given to bugs that have been demonstrated on show2.tikiwiki.org.
The URL for the show2.tikiwiki.org instance that demonstrates this bug is at: http://. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show". This is different from the initial login and password for a new Tiki which is "admin" and "admin".
For the install log, see http:///info.txt
Note that if you see PHP errors or a Tiki claiming to be missing third party software, the instance creation is probably not finished. Please wait a couple minutes and reload.
Snapshots are database dumps of the configuration that developers can download for debugging. Once you have reproduced your bug on the show2.tikiwiki.org instance, create a snapshot that can then be downloaded by developers for further investigation.
Snapshots can be accessed at: http:///snapshots/. Note that if you get a popup asking for a username/password, please just enter "show" and "show".Create new snapshot
