explore making this change. They are not missing if they are not dead, so we should cater for both scenarios without confusing things. Only would be missing of the person is alive 130 years after death. — billinghurst sDrewth 12:43, 20 March 2018 (UTC)Reply

DNB contributor template cleanup

Hi. I've been recently working on cleaning up the DNB contributor templates for ambiguous ones to match in line with existing similar ones. Can you please turn these into disambiguation pages similar to what's in Category:Dictionary of National Biography ambiguous contributor templates and disambiguate these with AWB? They're transcluded in so many pages, so they would require too many tabs to be opened if done manually.

During the cleanup, I also ran into Template:DNB AH Hartshorne, which seems to have been created in error since none of the DNB contributor lists attach Albert Hartshorne to any initial but "A.H-e." Making it a redirect to Template:DNB AH-e would be misleading because "A.H." was never used for his work on the DNB, so I might consider it for deletion. ミラP@Miraclepine 03:03, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Miraclepine: Please leave them for the moment as I am talking about Xover about a better way to deal with these. The current situation is ugly, and it is just getting more complex and unsustainable. — billinghurst sDrewth 03:30, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply
Thank you. I've subscribed to the conversation on Xover's talk page for further developments in the meanwhile. ミラP@Miraclepine 04:29, 28 January 2023 (UTC)Reply

Alumni Oxonienses (earlier) vol. 2 hiatus

As stated on https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Alumni_Oxonienses_(1500-1714)_volume_2.djvu. It comes from https://archive.org/details/alumnioxoniensi00oxfogoog/page/n37/mode/1up (onwards). Today I came across another scan: https://archive.org/details/b24873275_0002/page/457/mode/2up. So we can transclude the missing from there, in due course.
