So personally I would appreciate it if a birth date was not required when creating a character. This applies to using institutions as characters. In a history a government or a company may be an important actor, but their "birth date" generally has no meaning.
shorn wrote:2) Related to this, when you create a character, their birth is entered as an event in the timeline. I don't need this, so I delete the event, but the person remains as a character, which is great. However, if I later decide to enter a birth date, or change it, having deleted the event from the timeline, I don't see anywhere to do this.

(Similarly some kind of tagging mechanism would be good too.)

You can already associate an event as the "death event" for a character.
To do so, instead of left-clicking at the intersection point to cycle through "observer/participant/no participation", right-click. You will be presented with a menu that allows you to select 'Death' as well. I think this is mentioned in the documentation already, but it is a long document
