Only says "birth" even if also death-info[edit]

The following:

{{Creator
 | Name              = Fortuné Méaulle
 | Birthdate         = 1844-04-11
 | Birthloc          = Angers
 | Deathyear         = 1901
 | Deathloc          = 
}}

displays as:

Fortuné Méaulle (1844–1901) Link back to Creator infobox template

Collapsible class[edit]

As file page content is available on all projects, then you might want to use classes that are available on all projects, e.g. mw-collapsible instead of collapsible. It's design is probably less flexible, but at least it would work everywhere. 90.190.114.172 20:10, 4 October 2013 (UTC)

Symbol keep vote.svg Agree however I do not know much about different collapsable classes. Can someone more familiar with it try to create one in the sandbox? --Jarekt (talk) 18:23, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

User name parameter[edit]

Can we add a |user name= parameter, for cases where the creator is also active on Commons, or on a sister project? Andy Mabbett (talk) 16:06, 30 October 2013 (UTC)

I think that would be such a rare case that it would be more easily handled by adding username to description field. Some users created their own Creator templates but it is mostly discouraged unless they meet Wikipedia notability criteria (see Commons:Creator) and very few of us do. --Jarekt (talk) 18:21, 30 October 2013 (UTC)
