Add 'Request correction' link to People pages #708
Not 100% convinced this is a good idea, throwing out for feedback.
We could add a small, static text link on each Person page, something like "Request corrections to this information". (Or "Is this information incorrect?", or variations in that ballpark.)
This would go to a new, single-use contact form page, where the site visitor (who isn't necessarily the Person concerned!) can write what's wrong, add email address if not signed in (or perhaps they have to sign in first), and Submit. This page would mostly copy our existing Contact Us page design and validation logic.
Benefit for the site visitor is that, when they see an error on the Person page (name misspelling etc), it's more immediately obvious where to click to solve it, and that we are willing to solve it (in a general sense, as required by GDPR etc). Without this, they have to click around our FAQ and Contact Us pages to understand how to get the correction.
Benefits for us:
