    I agree with that 100%. In fact, I think a lot of surname projects are run by women who may not have had an immediate male family member who took a yDNA test.

      From our MyGroups pages:
      The goal of the STEVENSON Surname Project is to distinguish between STEVENSON ancestral lines, worldwide. Any reasonable spelling variant is included (please feel free to suggest a variant you feel we have missed)....Our member results are ONLY on male swabbers testing y-DNA. If you have tested at Family Finder without also testing y-DNA, please DO NOT request to JOIN this project.

      Each administrator must decide how to handle their surname projects, in my opinion.

        You are 100% correct. It is your right, as admin, to make that call. If you want to limit the success rate for your project that is your choice.

          Not only opinion but part of FTDNA's guidelines. It is up to the admin. However, allowing some of those autosomal-only testers could prove advantageous if you can get them interested in YDNA at some point rather than booting them. Their autosomal match lists can also be used to recruit potential YDNA testers who aren't aware of your project.
