Common Keying Errors Found by Reviewers
Some keyers are keying BA, MA, DD, etc into the Suffix field although the instructions say not to key these. --Katerimmer 16:18, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

Q: Should we ignore the word "The" if it appears at the beginning of a prefix? (e.g. The Reverend.) --Katerimmer 13:38, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
- A: Yes ignore the word "The". I asked Anna about this when the wiki was down last night. --Wiedwoman 15:22, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
Q: I know we don't key MA etc but are "Canon" , "Honorary Canon" or "Dean" valid suffixes? 28 Sept 2014
- A: I don't think so. --Katerimmer 21:37, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Q: With New Zealand names such as Joshua te Moanaroa, is the "te" part of the Given or part of the Surname. I think Surname but I am reviewing a set where it has been put with the Given Name. I do not want to punish the keyer by mistake.
- A: It is part of the surname. --Katerimmer 14:05, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
