Hello, Template:Botanist seems (at least to me) no longer to be working, in that it does not change the display of "botanist" depending on one's language settings; do you know why? Thank you, Maculosae tegmine lyncis (talk) 10:34, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

@Maculosae tegmine lyncis: I can see no reason; there have been no recent changes to either the template nor Module:Getlabel on which it depends. Neither have there been any relevant changes to the Wikidata item it uses, d:Q2374149. As it relies on Wikidata, the issue may be transient, so please try again.; after purging the page you're viewing. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:10, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

Template:McNamara, 1997

Hi Andy. This is a very small issue, but I wonder if there is a reason to why you added the same link twice when you created the {{McNamara, 1997}} template? There's one link "page 97" and one link "BHL" but they're both aiming at the same URL. As I said it's not a huge deal, but nonetheless it's a tiny bit misleading and/or inviting confusion. –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 19:32, 22 June 2021 (UTC).

@Tommy Kronkvist: I simply moved the code from another page. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:36, 22 June 2021 (UTC)
Okey, thanks. I've cleaned it up a bit. Tommy Kronkvist (talk). 22:03, 22 June 2021 (UTC).

Template for references

Hello, and Thank you for this (and subsequent) help(s). Small question: Should we systematically create templates for references, such as {{Creighton, 1930}}, {{Creighton, 1930b}}... and eventually convert all references from the author's page to templates? Or only for references actually used on taxon pages (to begin with)? Thank you in advance. AtonX (talk) 19:07, 28 June 2021 (UTC)

@AtonX: Ideally all of them, as they should all correspond to items in Wikidata. But as your comment implies, priority is for works cited on more than one page Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:10, 28 June 2021 (UTC)


Hi I requested that the some accepted combinations in the above genus be filled with data rather than deleted, but you deleted them, why? See Talk Pages. They are non-controversial so an easy fix, say 5 mins in total. I am doing a couple of red linked genera. Never mind. Andyboorman (talk) 19:00, 24 October 2021 (UTC)

Because I'm not telepathic. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:01, 24 October 2021 (UTC)
Because it is on the Discussion Page as requested by the request., no need for telepathy. Andyboorman (talk) 19:52, 24 October 2021 (UTC)
