Hi Yohann, Wikimedia India is not an informal organisation. We are a registered society in Karnataka, India. We need to comply with all the formal processes and regulatory bindings that entails. We need to make sure all our documents including membership forms are properly processed and compliant with all the regulatory requirements we have. This is not red tape, this is being compliant with the law. Failing to do this will lead to audit failures which inturn will have repercussions in our smooth functioning. We cannot alter membership applications on our own - even it is one single box. When we processed Niraj's application we promptly replied to Niraj saying we cannot process it, clearly indicated what was missing in it and asked him to resubmit a completed form.
