As some of you know, we have recently been working on our policies regarding Wikidata and Find A Grave. In particular, we have wanted to settle controversies in our community related to WikiTree+ hints based on bad data on those sites.
Any WikiTree+ suggestion can be dismissed by setting the status as "false suggestion (hide forever)." This is what you should do in most cases when a hint is based on bad information on one of those external sites.
Dismissing a suggestion is permanent. However, it only dismisses the one Wikidata or Find A Grave hint. There may be other hints, now or in the future, based on the same connection between the WikiTree profile and the Wikidata item or Find A Grave memorial.
If the connection itself is bad -- if the WikiTree profile and the Wikidata item or Find A Grave memorial represent different people -- Ales is now implementing a way for you to permanently dismiss and prevent all hints based on that connection. You just need to put sameas=no in a link template.
The link template should go in a Research Notes section on the profile that explains why the person can be confused for the person on Wikidata or Find A Grave, and why we know they are different.
To be clear, sameas=no should not be used when there is some incorrect information on the external site but their page is clearly meant to represent the same person as our profile. It should only be used if it's a completely different person, or if it's conflated person and a majority of the information on Wikidata or Find A Grave is for a different person.

If you have any questions, problems, or minor suggestions, post them here. If you have big suggestions, consider making a proposal.
