TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
A couple of people pointed out that the information
preceding the name (Mr., Miss, Ms., Dr., etc.) is
the person's title. At least one person distinguished
between generational information (III, Jr.) and titular
information (M.D., PhD) following names. One person
voted to call educational/job stuff an appellation,
instead of a suffix or title.
I think our developer is not that picky--any information
following somebody's name is going to be a suffix. I'll
have to ask him if he's made a provision for people with
more than one suffix. :-)
