If a game designer changes their name (either from getting married or some other reason) do games published after the change get listed under the same name or the new one? Both? Is there a way to list the change?

Case in point, "Anne Siegert" is now "Anne Thomas".

Since I wasn't sure, I just submitted a game to the database with the author's old name not the new one. (So the tie to the previously designed games was there.)

Dunno how the database was designed, but it should consider any given designer a single entity; so when her name is updated it should be reflected universally.

The name could be listed as "Anne (Siegert) Thomas."

My 2 cents. Really depends on how the database was designed.

I guess I was wondering what the offical BGG stance on this was?
