Proposal: Have help text Middle Name refer to help for Middle Name Warning [closed]

+16 votes

Many cultures do not know the concept of Middle Name. Last year a setting was introduced that enables suppression of Middle Name warnings for those cultures.

Unfortunately that setting is not mentioned in the Middle Name help text. Therefore I propose that text like this be added:

To suppress Middle Name warnings for cultures not having middle names please see Middle Name Warning

This has been done.
Thank you.

"This has been done" could be interpreted as if it was already done before I proposed it. It was not.

Good idea! Despite all the work to lower the number of wrong middle names in the Netherlands, the number stays about the same, due to all newly added wrong middle names. And this is in a country that has a WikiTree+ warning against middle names. The problem will be much larger in countries like Germany, Belgium and France.
