Only organization?[edit]

Only limited to organizations? Why? Michiel1972 (talk) 13:06, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

I have the same question - I want to use this as a qualifier for people with membership in the club "Bentvueghels", e.g. Kristiaan Reuder (Q18814454) Jane023 (talk) 12:35, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
As the property has a statement instance of (P31) Wikidata property for items about people (Q18608871) I assume it can be used for people as well. -- Bene* talk 12:46, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Jane023 (talk) 13:01, 19 April 2015 (UTC
If you look above you can see the example used when the property was proposed is a person. However it used for a nickname for this individual, not for generic nicknames for all members of an organisation ("Gooners" for supporters of Arsenal football club). Are you trying to say that Kristiaan Reuder was known as 'Leander' to the other members of Bentvueghels? If so then there are better properties than nickname. I suggest you use pseudonym (P742). You should add a reference as well giving the source of your information. Filceolaire (talk) 06:43, 22 April 2015 (UTC)
Actually, the nickname, once given was used also by others, not just members of the club. For some, their original names have been sadly forgotten. I guess it is a bit like nuns when they take on a new name when they put on a habit. A pseudonym in my mind is a name someone takes on when they are hiding something, not a name they are proud of. The example was only added after my query in the project chat. Jane023 (talk) 16:34, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
