Fixed the suggestion page.  The 'action' step had been removed, probably by accident.

Action is 'correct birth date'.

I have an alternative thought about that "action." Sometimes when I see this kind of DBE message (this one is "Mother is too young or not born"), the problem is not an incorrect date, but rather an incorrect person. For example, the wrong profile ID may have been connected as the mother, or the profile might have been created from an online genealogy in which the generations were scrambled. In situations like those, it would be a mistake to simply edit the dates.
Agreed, I have seen that frequently.  I was just putting back the action that had been removed.  When they get back to rewriting the Suggestion Pages, they will be reviewing all G2G that have been tagged for each page, so hopefully, this will get picked up at that time, but I will pass it along to DD group, also.

Hi Robin

Just had a quick look @ the Error description page - I think the {{{action}}} part of this page hasn't been written yet and the words are there as a space holder/reminder that this needs to bee filled smiley

Take a look at the video for better diagnosis/ action steeps
