Insufficient instructions on "Marriage County" field

As I arbitrate this project I notice that almost everyone is typing the name of the county given at the top right of the index card. This is the county that the record was filed under, not always the same county where the marriage took place. Only experienced genealogists and indexers will pick up on this. Please add a field help and project update. As an arbitrator, when both indexers mark the county with the top right field I understand it is not correct. It is also not my duty as an arbitrator to fix an error that both indexers made so many faulty records are being submitted.
