This page is for the proposal of new properties.

Before proposing a property
  1. Check if the property already exists by looking at Wikidata:List of properties (manual list) and Special:AllPages.
  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:Infoboxes task force 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.
  2. See steps when creating properties.

I want to add information to the CPU items, but there aren't enough properties to that. MisterSanderson (talk) 00:46, 21 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Should be number datatype.--GZWDer (talk) 14:27, 26 October 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Changed to number.--Micru (talk) 16:54, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - This property should use the unit "Hz". Mega and Giga are just prefixes to the cycle rate. --Tobias1984 (talk) 13:12, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
Tobias1984 (talkcontribslogs), using Hz is a bad thing. The clock frequency of actual processors are measured in a small number of GHz, or a big number in MHz. The numbers in Hz will be too big... 1.8GHz = 1,800MHz = 1,800,000KHz = 1,800,000,000Hz. This is very unpractical.--MisterSanderson (talk) 12:42, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
What I'm trying to say is that it shouldn't be a unit-less datatype, but have Hz as a unit. The prefixes and the preferred displaying of MHz and GHz will be handled by the user interface. If it is unit-less it will output 1.8 in a query and it will take additional work to put in the GHz. --Tobias1984 (talk) 12:49, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
The Wikidata user interface can show Hz as GHz automatically?--MisterSanderson (talk) 17:20, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
We are just discussing the specifications of the datatype here: Wikidata:Requests for comment/Dimensions and units for the quantity datatype. Everybody is welcome to comment ;) --Tobias1984 (talk) 18:09, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment CPU clock rates are variable on the vast majority of CPUs. Also, there is no need for clock rate to be specific to CPUs, it applies to all types of chip, e.g. GPUs, RAM, etc. Danrok (talk) 01:37, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
But there is a clock rate specified by the manufacturer for the CPU. It's the maximum clock rate without overclock.--189.83.216.41 13:49, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support if it is number with units but Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose if it is a dimensionless number.

Symbol support vote.svg Support --Tobias1984 (talk) 10:49, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Again this is not so simplistic. FSB speed is variable and has a relationship with the CPU speed. These things are often configurable settings specific to an individual computer. Also, FSB has been superseded by HyperTransport or Intel QuickPath Interconnect, which further complicates matters. It begs the question do we really need this data, what will it be used for? Danrok (talk) 01:43, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I created an item for the processor. Hopefully we will get both bit and byte in the numeric datatype. --Tobias1984 (talk) 16:10, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I think this is best left until we have the number type, and know how it will function, because we may only need one generic property for "size in bytes" which can be used as a qualifier. So, for example, we may be able to claim that a CPU has part L2 cache with qualifiers, quantity = 2, size = 8MB. Let's not create 100s of properties for speeds and dimensions.

script directionality[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    Done
Property:P1406
  • Description: directionality of writing system
Discussion

Some scripts can be written in multiple directions, so different values could be specified. Also, it may be ambiguous whether TTB and "bottom up" goes from left-to-right or right-to-left, which could be specified as separate items. πr2 (t • c) 19:25, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

It's also ambiguous whether LTR and RTL go downwards or upwards in block direction. --Yair rand (talk) 20:13, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
@Yair rand: That's true, but I'm not aware of any LTR/RTL that goes upwards. Maybe we need two properties (or a qualifier) for this, unless you can think of a non-confusing way to encode it. The majority of scripts (especially ones still used today) are probably either LTR downwards or RTL downwards. πr2 (t • c) 21:19, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
@Yair rand, PiRSquared17: I have added some of the necessary items (see above), more can be created as needed. If there are no objections I'll create this property in the next days.--Micru (talk) 19:26, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

varietal[edit]

Wikidata:List of properties • v · d · e
Status:    In progress
  • Description: type of wine made primarily from a single named grape, herb or fruit variety
Discussion

Varietals aren't "genres" and that is the closest thing I can find to what would fit for listing types of grapes, fruits, or herbs used to make wines, liquors, beers, ciders, etc. This is my first time requesting a property and I'm unsure on if I did it right, but, perhaps others interested can help improve this request. Thank you for your consideration. SarahStierch (talk) 17:18, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Sarah, could you give an example of how you see this property being used in a Wikidata statement? For something like Zinfandel (Q204433), we might be able to build a set of varietals with existing properties, e.g. "Zinfandel use (P366) varietal". Other useful statements might be "Zinfandel instance of (P31) cultivar", "Zinfandel subclass of (P279) Vitis vinifera". That instance of and subclass of usage would be consistent with how Wikidata classifies cats and dogs, e.g. Chihuahua (Q653).
Anyhow, food and drink is an interesting area for structured data. Let me know if the above makes sense or if you have other ideas about how to model things. Cheers, Emw (talk) 19:59, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Hi User:Emw! Hmmm.... I'm not really sure actually...I'm pretty open minded and didn't give that aspect much thought outside of wanting to be able to use "varietal" as a statement. I'm not too sure...I can see the cultivar and vitis vinifera probably working best as statements versus the first varietal - but, since Zinfandel is a varietal, and it's a type of vitis vinifera.....hmmmm.... I'm leaning towards your experience in this to guide me! SarahStierch (talk) 20:06, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Sarah, things like "Zinfandel" are tricky because they're polysemous. As you you say, Zinfandel is a type of wine and a type of grape. However, many statements for Zinfandel wine are false for Zinfandel grape, and vice versa. For example, Zinfandel wine is not susceptible to bunch rot and Zindandel grapes do not have an alcohol by volume range of 12-17%. The wine derives from the grape. I think these statements illustrate the need for two separate items for the two different senses of Zinfandel.
This kind of polysemy exists elsewhere, e.g. with the concept "influenza". Influenza is formally a type of disease, but it is often also used to refer to a type of virus. Separating the two concepts into two Wikidata items -- influenza (Q2840) and influenza virus (Q287246) -- allows us to be much more precise and expressive about each subject.
Perhaps we could do the same here with Zinfandel wine and the Zinfandel grape it derives from. That is, we could reserve Zinfandel (Q204433) for the grape and create a new item Zinfandel wine (Qx) for the wine. What do you think? Emw (talk) 00:29, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
User:Emw you are a genius! (But you probably knew that already). Making new items for wine is a GREAT idea. How do we make that happen. SarahStierch (talk) 01:59, 8 July 2014 (UTC)
