Where you see the system as anglo-centric, demeaning, disrespectful, and horrendous, I see the site as a collaborative outpost that has to work within set boundaries in order to function as it has for so long.
And just to be clear, I never stated that the guidelines cannot be reevaluated and/or updated. I was merely wanting to point out that it has been structured this way for specific technical reasons.
The LNAB has been set as the primary key (page name) for WikiTree profiles, so this now becomes a fundamental technical issue that has to be addressed very carefully to ensure that the site does not become a breeding ground for errors or where it will have a negative impact on existing data with a swift and rapid change. This is where precautions need to be taken, and that any changes suggested have to be clearly thought out in advance, tested, etc. To simply disregard the field or revert to "whatever the manager wants to put here is fine" will cause countless issues and errors across the system, even if they may not be readily apparent. There would also be the issues of merges, connections, etc.
So, this is a question that needs to be thought out very seriously, cautiously, and have full support of the Team - not something that can be quickly decided and voted on here in G2G.
