What about standing room of a venue?
I think I get the idea behind this property, but at least for some venues I know it would be more applicable to talk of capacity. Often the seating capacity is not known, only the full capacity (seating capacity plus standing room) is known. I guess for some venues (like theaters) we want to know the seating capacity (as normally people sit there during a stage performance). For stadiums (sports venues in general) we want to know the "total capacity", so the number of people that are allowed in a venue during a sports event (seating capacity plus standing room). Maybe this could be reflected in the label/description in some way, not sure how. In the end the correct term for sports venues with standing room would probably be "maximum number of tickets that are be sold for this venue" as we don't really know what the maximum legal capacity is, we (usually) only know how many tickets are sold for sports events in such a venue. E.g. a sports club could sell less tickets for the standing room in this venue than are allowed by law (legal capacity) as they think this would be too uncomfortable for the spectators (just a made up example, not sure if this is realistic :) --Bthfan (talk) 17:04, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
- I agree, the English label and description should be changed. In all other languages, the label already implies the total capacity. --Pasleim (talk) 10:48, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
- Changed. --Denny (talk) 16:00, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
From the new label it's not clear that it's meant for venues. Now it's used (and erronousely did so myself) for vehicles with units such as "aircraft pilot (Q2095549)" and "passenger (Q319604)". Should we add "venue" into the label? --- Jura 14:44, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
- I think it's okay to use this property also for vehicles but I really don't like the units aircraft pilot (Q2095549) and passenger (Q319604). meter (Q11573), millennium (Q36507) etc. are units but not aircraft pilot (Q2095549). --Pasleim (talk) 16:07, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
Standing room again: if we use the total capacity (which is useful since often there is no other number available), the allowed unit still only is "seat", which gives a wrong impression. "Person" (possibly Q215627?) should be allowed, too. --Anvilaquarius (talk) 08:38, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
Why limit to people?
Given that we can specify units, should we broaden this property to be able to talk about the number of containers on a container ship, or the number of bullets in a gun? Bovlb (talk) 00:02, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
