Two VIAF number for one person[edit]

What should we do if a person have two VIAF numbers, two ISNI nunbers like it is in Nathan Marcus Adler case? -- Geagea (talk) 07:51, 18 February 2016 (UTC)

@Geagea: Use the better one (the one with the most data in the VIAF record), but add both of them to the Wikidata item, so that it will be picked up by a constraint report, which is seen by VIAF, who will resolve it and redirect one to the other. Andy Mabbett (talk) 12:21, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
Andy Mabbett, Thanks for your advice. BTW I did not receive the ping. -- Geagea (talk) 14:26, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

Uruguayan Authority[edit]

There is a new Authority for Uruguay: autores.uy (Template:Authority control/autores.uy) -- Pablolaguna (talk) 03:35, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

@Pablolaguna: Is this in Wikidata? Andy Mabbett (talk) 12:17, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing: Yes, it is, and working very well. A bot is being develop to add the id to every uruguayan author who is in autores.uy. --Pablolaguna (talk) 11:47, 15 March 2016 (UTC)

National Library of Spain[edit]

May I ask the use of BNE (National Library of Spain) ID: P950. It's extremely useful for the Spanish-speaking world, as it's possibly the most widely use authority control identifier in Spanish-speaking countries. Best regards --Discasto talk 10:30, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Discasto, We expect to hare access to wikidata turn on this month. This template will go through major rewrites as a result. We will likely not be adding any features beforehand. But once we are done and this feature is not there please leave message again. --Jarekt (talk) 17:02, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
OK, it does not seem as adding just a line of code (I'd take care of writing {{Authority control/BNE}}), but you're the one who rules. Thanks anyway --Discasto talk 20:47, 22 April 2016 (UTC)
Discasto if you want to write it go ahead. Than add {{edit protected}} to add it. --Jarekt (talk) 01:01, 23 April 2016 (UTC)

Using data directly from Wikidata for this template[edit]

Per m:Tech/News/2016/17, Wikimedia Commons will have full access to any Wikidata pages starting from April 26. Is there any plans to deploy the new Lua module like the corresponding template on Wikipedias? Quenhitran (talk) 07:57, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
