ESA registry: Remove 'station' default value from Organization Name
In the ESA registration form, the Organization Name field under Basic Information is prepopulated with the value 'station'. This shouldn't be in there.

On second thought, I'll take this one step further.
It doesn't make sense for Organization Name to appear as a field under Basic Information at all, much less appear as a required field. People end up entering their institutional affiliation in that field, and this makes it look as though the institution itself is a separate co-creator of the data. Really, if the data owner has an institutional affiliation, it should only go in the (non-required) Organization Name field that appears separately in the Principal Data Set Owner section.
And for the record, documents submitted through the ESA registry already get this automatically:
<organizationName>Ecological Society of America</organizationName>
