Crockford's Clerical Directory[edit]

Crockford's Clerical Directory is the authoritative directory of priests in the Anglican Communion, covering a large number of notable subjects in category:Anglo-Catholic clergy and subcategories. Guy (Help!) 17:07, 15 August 2018 (UTC)

JzG, I couldn't find a Wikidata property for Crockford's, except this other one that mentions it. I recommend you make a property proposal at d:Wikidata:Property proposal/Authority control, then it can be added and handled seamlessly by the module.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  19:18, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

ArhivX LOD[edit]

Should ArhivX LOD be added? Peaceray (talk) 06:37, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Interested Parties Information[edit]

My question if a composer's IPI code is better used in Musician Infobox or be a subject of Authority Control (Property 1828)ZJ (talk) 11:15, 21 September 2018 (UTC)


MusicBrainz appears to be a WP:USERG site. Why are we including its content? I think it should be removed. Toddst1 (talk) 22:03, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Information Center for Israeli Art artist ID[edit]

Would be nice to add Information Center for Israeli Art artist ID (P1736). For example Ya'acov Dorchin would get a link to [1]. Multichill (talk) 15:20, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

Argument to disable WorldCat Identities links[edit]

Can we add an argument to disable generation of WorldCat Identities links?

There are some works that have VIAF IDs but do not have a WorldCat Identities page. Some examples are video games in the BNF (National Library of France) namespace like No Man's Sky or Acts of Congress in the LCCN (Library of Congress) such as Digital Millennium Copyright Act.

Being able to set worldcatid=no to suppress generating that link would be helpful for those articles so that users don't see 404 errors on what are usually good links. William Graham talk 21:41, 9 October 2018 (UTC)

 Done. You may now suppress WorldCat Identities via a blank |WORLDCATID=, similar to all other parameters.   ~ Tom.Reding (talkdgaf)  11:18, 10 October 2018 (UTC)
