Also co-founder[edit]

I've added "or co-founder," if this is problematic, please remove. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 14:31, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Someone who founded a place -- i.e. a state or city -- should be applicable, too. Yet we term them "geographical features" and not "organizations." So I've tweaked the description a little. Shawn in Montreal (talk) 21:00, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Human instead of person[edit]

The constraints must be updated, person (Q215627) states it is not to be used for instance of (P31). Ahoerstemeier (talk) 15:56, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

so you reject using of this property for fictitious organisations? --Infovarius (talk) 14:50, 23 May 2014 (UTC)

constraint report relating to Wikimedia disambiguation page (Q4167410)[edit]

Organisations, Countries[edit]

Looking at the constraint violations for this property, I'm seeing lots of instances where a country or organisation is listed as the founder, e.g.

Do we want to change the constraints of this property or create a new one to handle these values? Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 10:53, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I'd say any agent (Q24229398) should be allowed. -- JakobVoss (talk) 09:07, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
I agree that the allowed values should be expanded to more than just persons. Any agent seems a sensible suggestion as this would be a catch-all for the entities that are often founders. If that is not agreeable, then perhaps a founding member property is necessary.Sic19 (talk) 17:31, 24 June 2016 (UTC)

Multiple foundations[edit]

What do you do with organisations that have been re-founded? e.g. w:Magdalene College, Cambridge

Slight label change to encourage correct use of this property[edit]

I have changed the label (again) from 'founder' to 'founded by', in order to avoid confusion and improve human-readability and correct use. I've seen too many wrong applications of this property where a human (Q5) is said to be founded by (P112) an organization. Spinster 💬 11:09, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

Founder of an ideology[edit]

I've added ideology (Q7257) as a class that could be founded by someone. This includes religions as a subclass of that, but also things like political ideologies.--Pharos (talk) 17:23, 22 September 2018 (UTC)

value type constraint[edit]

Organization can be founded by another organization, also company (subsidiary) can be founded by company , not only limited to government and human. Matthew hk (talk) 21:23, 24 December 2018 (UTC)
