Family Tree: Death Event Should Require Sometimes Require a Reason
I wish to suggest a small modification to Family Tree profiles to require the user the make an entry in the "Reason the information is correct" text box when checking the "Deceased" check box (circle, actually) without entering an interpretable date in the Death event of vital information under two circumstances:
1) the date of the Birth event of vital information is blank or uninterpretable; or,
2) the date of the Birth event of vital information indicates that the person would not be more than 110 years old.
The "business case" for this modification is to lessen the chance that a person's profile will be carelessly or thoughtlessly marked "Deceased" when, in fact, the person is still living. By requiring the user to enter something in the "Reason the information is correct" box, the user would either have to give at least some thought why the profile is being marked "Deceased" or actively (and, perhaps, dishonestly) circumvent the system by entering something like a period punctuation mark.
