  2. Check if the property is already pending or has been rejected.
  3. Check if you can give it similar label and definition as an existing Wikipedia infobox parameter, or if it can be matched to an infobox, to or from which data automatically can be transferred. See WD:WikiProject Infoboxes for suggestions.
  4. Select the right datatype for the Property.
  5. Start writing the documentation based on the preload form below and add it in the appropriate section.

Creating the property

  1. Creation can be done after 1 week by a property creator or an administrator.

ISO 12620 ID[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: Numeric ID from the Data Category Registry, which is a registry of linguistic terms specified by w:ISO 12620, which is a standard from w:ISO/TC 37. Each item in the registry has a PID which is a stable URI which is accessible via a RESTful interface, and it is available under a Creative Commons license. There is a web interface to the Data Category Registry as well as more information at http://www.isocat.org/index.html.
Discussion

The DCR is created and maintained by scholars all over the world. It is the subject of numerous scholarly publications (http://www.isocat.org/files/publications.html). Supporting items with links to the DCR could help with integration with Wiktionary in the future. Haplology (talk) 03:04, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As for the example: Why not 4948, 5748, or [2765 2765] for adjective (Q34698)? From my understanding, ISO 12620 is about implementing a registry for linguistic terminologies, i.e. existing vocabularies are imported to provide some kind of centralized system of reference. And isocat is one specific registry implementing that standard. Its identifiers are specific to isocat and not to ISO 12620. The listed terminilogies still exist in parallel, no attempts are made to create a combined vocabulary. Thus any concept ("class") may occurr many times in the registry. Intended usage of isocat seems not to provide direct points of refrence but rather to construct specific new sets of terminological classes for specific projects. But maybe I'm completely off the track... -- Gymel (talk) 08:27, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Cambridge Alumni Database ID[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: ID in the Cambridge Alumni Database/Alumni Cantabrigienses (ACAD)
Discussion

Alumni Cantabrigienses is a ten-volume directory listing all known students of the University of Cambridge up to 1900, with around 130,000 entries. The University Library at Cambridge has supported an online version of this ("ACAD", at venn.lib.cam.ac.uk) which has assigned an identifier to every entry and allows a static URL to be generated (see, eg, PRKR685T).

There are currently around 5000 links to ACAD on enwiki. Andrew Gray (talk) 17:32, 15 September 2014 (UTC)

  • This would be useful to have. It can be noted that many Oxford graduates are also included, where their degrees were recognised by Cambridge, something quite common in past centuries. So for British history the site is a substantial resource including notable people. Charles Matthews (talk) 11:03, 18 September 2014 (UTC)

GA-Number[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
Discussion

GA-Numbers are very common for New Testament manuskripts. The number provides access to the Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung Münster database which is the most important source for all data concerning the manuscripts, provides photos or scans and transcriptions of the greek texts. The GA number is enough to source all statements of an item you can think of. There are many articles named after the GA Number as Papyrus 66 (Q666654), Uncial 070 (Q695524), Minuscule 69 (Q1128804), Lectionary 1681 (Q1816555) and so on.

@Giftzwerg 88: Why not to use catalog code (P528) with qualifier catalog (P972)?--Micru (talk) 09:57, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
GA-Numbers are used since 1908. Gregory´s proposals were given to more than 100 famous scolars all around the globe and allmost all of them agreed and cherished this system of numbering of manuskripts.Have a look on this publications (German). The whole world uses this numbers since Gregory´s book. GA numbers then were used in all critical editions of the Greek New Testament. The first editions of Novum Testamentum Graece (Q746704) used an different numbering, but changed to GA Numbers very soon, and made them poular in all publications. This numbers are older than Kurt Aland (Q61806) who as able to identifiy different fragmants with different GA- numbers that belonged to one manuskript, so he reformed and enhanced the list of Gregory with new numbers for some more manuskripts Gregory did not know about. At last Aland founded the Instituft für Neutestamentliche Forschung and handed over the authority of numbering of new Manuscripts to the institute. But this numbers are some 50 years older than INTF and the cataloge of the INTF.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 12:41, 18 October 2014 (UTC)
I need this number badly for infoboxes used in articles concerning New Testament manuskripts. I just cant use wikidata items to fill the infobox, because there are no GA-Numbers to fill in, so the manuscript is nameless. The infobox is multilingual in its contents and can be used in every language, it is just the header that may be needed to translate. You can find this box for example in this articles https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus_66 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus_66 https://id.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papirus_66 https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papirus_Bodmer_II, the box is allmost the same in all languages and all of them contain the GA-Number P66 in the header or elsewhere in the box. --Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 20:13, 18 October 2014 (UTC)

@Jakec:. Though it may seem more consistent with other things, p553:Linkedin, P554: would not tell that this is a company identifier and that the URL should containt "/company". I guess a separate property would be needed (well, I would be in favor of replacing P553 with "Facebook account" et al. properties anyway). --Zolo (talk) 08:48, 19 October 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment 1) For caWP we have CANTIC (P1273): Pieter van der Aa (Q533876) => a10640745. Both catalogues are located in Barcelona. Do you have more information? (Do they work together? Is one catalogue more important than the other?) 2) The title "Autoritats UB ID" is ambiguous, since "UB" (Universitätsbibliothek) also stands for "university library". --Kolja21 (talk) 23:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
@Kolja21: I forwarded your question and the answer was: the Universitat of Barcelona participates in CANTIC, and the IDs are the same whenever the registers match. The problem is that Càntic has a narrower scope, so there are items in UB that do not have an ID in Cantic. The numbers are:
  • 173265 total number of author registers at UB
  • 62200 matching registers with Càntic
  • 111065 only at UB and not on Càntic
I am told that it is possible to import only those that are not available at Càntic, and they have information about some people that is not available in other authority catalogues (like for this person).
I changed the label so it is not confused with Universitätsbibliothek.--Micru (talk) 11:23, 23 October 2014 (UTC)
