Right, nice work. However, may be easier if you sort the lines into six. For that, in modern spanish, we use the @ to mean male/female. So, how about:

-AR infinitivos such as bailar, volar, amar
yo -o

tú -as
él/ella/Ud. -a
nosotr@s -amos
vosotr@s -ais (this one, the pl 'you people', was not on your original list)
ell@s /uds -an

I don't understand you. you said that you use the @ instead of A, mmm I'm sorry by telling you this but it's not correct in the grammar.

The @ looks like an O, with an A inside. It's to show that they both have a masculine and a feminine form.

ellos y ellas.
nosotros y nosotras.
vosotros y vosotras.

It's just more comfortable for your grammar notes, guys, besides, it is what Spanish teenagers (and learners in general) do here.

I think it looks cool

I have also never used it, or thought about doing so, but it looks pretty good, maybe it would be worth using. It would at least spare some time.

Hmmm...using @ for o/a is a good idea - thanks.
