non-living people

+10 votes
At the moment, the form to fill in for a new person offers death "radio buttons" of about/uncertain or certain/exact .  Only after you come back for another edit do you find the first radio buttons now includes  "but non-living".

This should be improved so that the add new person button one includes  "but non-living".

Then the dilemma will be whether to click button one if one is uncertain whether the person has in fact certainly died.

I agree. We should have the choice of "but non-living" right from the time of the profile creation.

I agree.  It's an odd choice of description, though.  I can't help comparing 'non-living' with 'undead.'
