Description of need:
When adding a common name to a taxon, one is presented with the question,
If this is a scientific name, is it currently accepted? (True/False)
People adding non-scientific names are sometimes confused by this and select False, which results in their new name being displayed with
strikethrough in the Taxonomy tab, creating further confusion.
Feature request details:
Don’t display the
If this is a scientific name, is it currently accepted? prompt except while the Scientific Name lexicon is actively selected in the editing window, and/or don’t change display of non-Scientific names in the Taxonomy tab based on the True/False selection for that prompt.
