I object to the word sourcerer, it denotes witchcraft. Can't another terminology be used?

You are confusing Sourcerer, meaning "one who sources," with Sorcery.

So there is no need to use a different term!laugh

Can we rename it Source Wizard?

The first time the badge was awarded was on 09 Jul 2015. That word has been in use in WikiTree for more that 3 years. The whole community is aware that the meaning of the word in WikiTree has nothing to do with witchcraft.

I respect your right to desagree but there is nothing wrong in using the word "Sourcerer" the way WikiTree does.
