Cf your edit at Q56229820, the World Cat entry which mentions a book about police dogs is for another person of the same name, a policeman who is 20-30-year older.

WorldCat number of holdings
@Gamaliel, with https://tools.wmflabs.org/editgroups/b/OR/ca88c7a127/ you're adding qualifier "quantity" to WorldCat Identities ID (P7859) meaning "(number of) worldcat holdings". Do you think that's valuable given that this number is bound to change quite often? If you really need to do that, please make sure you add it to the existing statements and don't create duplicates, eg
We do. This is the result of a collaboration between OCLC and Wikiproject Women in Red. The number is used in listeria lists as a rough measure of importance and the availability of sources for potential article topics. Removing this number has now made all of those lists nonfunctional.
I've run a batch in QuickStatements to eliminate the small number of duplicates and I'm going to revert your reversion of my batch. I'm sorry about creating the duplicates but I would ask if you find any more we collaborate to come up with a solution that doesn't eliminate a lot of good data that people are using.
You're doing the right action. After your batch is complete, I'll recheck Property talk:P7859#avoiding duplicates and try to eliminate more.
However, you've flooded me with notifications. Guess that is because you have the "Reverter" right? I dismiss them 50 at a time but still, going through 850 is tedious...
Sorry about that! Is there a way to do it without sending a notification?
Don't know :-) We are getting there: I'm removing my duplicates now..
Hi @Gamaliel:, are you working to eliminate the duplicates?
I'll reply on the Property talk page to centralize the discussion.
@Vladimir Alexiev, you have added the tag viaf-316734778 to the reference element. The added label refers to Losada, a publication from Buenos Aires, Argentina, when the Q5981319 element refers to a town in Spain. I am therefore undoing the edit, removing the tag again, as this WorldCat Identities ID, owned by the author, is not suitable for a population. Best regards, ~~~~
@Galopax There are legitimate WorldCat pages about places, but I think you're right, this probably refers to Argentinian publishing house Editorial Losada not the Spanish city
