Media Viewer ignores other authors if one of them has a Creator: template
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

File:Moireraster.png has its authors specified as:

|Author      = [[User:Anton~commonswiki|Anton (rp)]], original photograph by {{Creator:Nadar}}

When viewed in Media Viewer, all author information other than "Nadar" has been stripped. That is unfortunate, because even though Nadar certainly deserves the main credit here for the original photograph, Commons User Anton (rp) is the one who needs to be credited from a copyright perspective.

(Random wikis can have random templates with random names. I would not expect MediaViewer to know about all and any of them.)

We're talking about the most basic things on Commons here. MediaViewer knows about this. It just tries to be smarter than it should.
