Author disambiguation - Mark Mills

Dez 3, 2022, 10:39 am

I recently added Maré de Azar, the Portuguese version of Amagansett. My problem is that I'm not able to set the right author and I keep receiving the information that the nationality of the author is "not set" in the "Nationality" graph of the Charts and Graphs report.

When I try to figure out what is the problem, I get the Mark Mills disambiguation page, where it says that «"Mark Mills" is composed of at least 2 distinct authors, divided by their works» ( and Although the book Maré de Azar is correctly combined with Amagansett I cannot get rid of the disambiguation.

Any suggestion/explanation/help on this?

Mark B. Mills is the author name that shows in your list, and very little CK has been set there.

>1 TonyRAlmeida: I'm not sure what you're saying is the correct resolution you're trying to achieve in terms of "setting the right author". There are multiple authors by the name of Mark Mills, which is why there is a disambiguation page for that name. If "Amagansett" is currently assigned to the wrong one you can change that with the Author Division (Edit the Division) link on that disambiguation page, to set it to Mark Mills (1) or a new Mark Mills (3), whatever is the appropriate author split. We don't want to remove the disambiguation because it's necessary to keep the different Mark Mills authors separate.

If you're trying to add Nationality or other Common Knowledge, there is a large amount of it already there for Mark Mills (2):
but not much under Mark B. Mills, as MarthaJeanne says:

Currently Mark Mills (2) is aliased into Mark B. Mills because the users here have determined those are the same author. If you want to add more Common Knowledge to Mark B. Mills you can do that, including copying over from the Mark Mills (2) page.

>3 scott_beeler: Thank you. Your explanation helped me understand the issue here. Because the book is being redirected to Mark B. Mills, and this page is lacking a lot of information. Problem solved :)
