I'd like to see surname pages with documentation. For instance, I could enter my grandfather and upload a JPG of his death certificate, family bible entry, etc., anything acceptable as a primary or secondary source. You could require a source upload without verifying if the source is acceptable so long as it could be reported to administrators and removed is needed. Upon removal, the name entry would no longer be valid. Any name with any uploaded or "typed into a form" source would be acceptable. If we had a surname database of just entries with sources it would be a lot more accurate.

This gives you an idea if you must respond immediately, or it you just want to get through the rest of your email before opening up your web browser. -- The email notices we're getting now are of little or no value to me. (Yes, I've learned to have Outlook auto-place them in a specific folder so my mail inbox isn't so cluttered.)
In other words, GenealogyWise, this isn't about page hits, this is about social networking.
If you happen to get a lot of page hits, then so much the better.
Remember that another large genealogy website has been attempting for years to overcome the reputation about being too focused on the numbers.
If you build it -- they will come.
Build it right.
