unwelcome install dialog text



  • This is an unwelcome install dialog text. Our industry suffers an inequality in our inclusion of female members and examples like this are corrosive to the efforts many of us put forth to help resolve the imbalance. Please have this text removed. There are more inclusive ways to communicate the core message of things being better when they are free.

  • @Steve-Signorelli ,

    We Notepad++ Community forum members have no ability to change that.

    If you’d like to contact the developer and make the request, there is an issues page to make such requests.

    I think one has to infer some things to consider that the “unwelcome” text is “harmful” to one specific gender? In light of recent media events, there may actually be no genders, furthering my confusion about your comment.

    However, it is possible that the text you highlight in yellow is offensive to some, and I’m sure an acceptable substitute can be found.
