Dear all - in project options there is Edit, but unfortunately there is still missing option to edit project name itself.
This is needed:
A) for correcting misprints in project names
example:
http://www.geni.com/projects/Eesti-s%C3%B5jameeste-kalimistute-andm...
need to change "kalimistute" to "kalmistute"
B) to add English translation of project name which is currently only in some national language
example:
http://www.geni.com/projects/Eesti-Rahat%C3%A4hed
to change name to "Eesti Rahatähed - Estonian Banknotes"
etc.

P.S. How to add line breaks into project description?

BR

A) We will enable an option to edit Project titles in the near future.
B) You might try including both translations when creating the project, for now.
C) You may use <br> to indicate line breaks. You might find this aide helpful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Line_break_handling

This is really needed. I had a case of brain fade and misspelled Japanese in a title and the only thing I could think of was to delete the project and start over :-(

Yes, we agree. I will look and see if I can find out an ETA on this update.

Ashiya: It might be a good safety move to limit title changes to the person who started the project. Some people on Geni are offended by some subjects, Hitler for example.
