I am unhappy about the 'alias' section in a member's details.
In Family Tree Builder I checked for '(tools) consistency issues and got maybe eight requests to move a name to the alias section.
In the case of my own name it was shown as Athol Geoffrey "Geoff" Stewart, because I am known by the shortened version of my second name. This is common practice.
But if I am to move it to another part of the front of the card I don't want it to be called 'alias'.
In English that is used in the case of criminals. Only criminals.
And of course it is not a nick-name. I went to school with people with nick-names like 'Pig' or 'Doggy'
Maybe you could call it 'Usually known as' or something. NOT alias.
Thank you for writing to us.
I understand your concern, and I will pass your suggestion on to our development team for further consideration.
I apologize about the inconvenience caused.
