Summary0000371: Suffix usage
DescriptionWe should reviewall the names of the accounts that have the Suffix field filled out.
I had too many cases of accidently filled out Suffix fields, and too many of them already being assured that way, due to the Assurance Webform not clearly distinguishing it.
Perhaps we should add a comment to the signup form saying "This field is only for Suffixes. Please only fill it, if you know what a suffix is."
Lot of people mistake Suffix with Prefix (which is reasonable, I would say)
I saw a lot of "Mr." Suffixes.
So we should research it, and take a look how large the problem is.
And it´s difficult for Assurers to see, because it doesn´t look any different than firstname/lastname.

There should be a comment on the join page on the webpage to explain what this suffix is for.
