Stack Exchange have released a post about changing their policy and CoC on using personal pronouns. I am not familiar with all of the personal pronouns linked in an article that they cite on the linked meta post.

What exactly are the definitions of each of these personal pronouns, and their differences?

Zie, Sie, Ey, Ve, Tey, E

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is not related to achieving an interpersonal goal. Questions here are related to interpersonal skills. – ElizB Oct 11 at 3:14

    I honestly don't know. My scope is only within this site and part of Meta Stack Exchange. It may be better for you to do research on this and ask people who use these pronouns or know someone who does? – ElizB Oct 11 at 3:16

    This doesn't appear to be about interpersonal skills, but rather definitions of words. I haven't read the link they came from, is there not an explanation on that site? Otherwise you might search one of the stacks on English (English Language and Usage or English Language Learners - I'm pretty sure I've seen questions on neopronouns there before, but I'm on mobile right now and can't search easily) – Em C Oct 11 at 4:07

The pronouns you listed Zie, Sie, Ey, Ve, Tey, E are all gender neutral pronouns.

Their meanings are mostly subjective to those who self-identify with them.

The key similarity is the gender neutral-ness of them. They are used in place of he/him and she/her, because those who self-identify with these alternative pronouns use them to specify that they do not fall within binary gender categories (he/him, she/her).

Further than that, the choice of pronoun is simply a personal preference. https://www.mypronouns.org mentions them all, but describes each of them simply as gender-neutral, rather than a set of distinct gender identities.

    Most likely because you're answering an off topic question which is discouraged. – Imus Oct 11 at 8:22
