Please don't add redundant information
Example: 2009 Guangzhou International Women's Open (Q1552778) instance of (P31) Guangzhou International Women's Open (Q279861) which is subclass of (P279) tennis tournament (Q13219666), which in turn has property sport (P641) = tennis (Q847).
As a consequence, 2009 Guangzhou International Women's Open (Q1552778) is implied to have property sport (P641) = tennis (Q847), and should not specify that property itself (redundantly) in the type of relational database that wikidata is.
- Dear Vinkje83, some form of redundancy is part of Wikidata. You should learn to live with that. Multichill (talk) 19:44, 4 November 2014 (UTC)

usage of country name as a qualifier
Long time since passed by at Hong Kong. Somewhat concerned by usage of 'Australia' after what appear to be obvious Australian identified locations ( like South Australia, Australia) - is there a rule or policy that requires such a qualifier in descriptions? Please lead me to such an item, as I really think it is a potential issue - unless you can show me where it is an essential element of descriptions... sats (talk) 01:49, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
- Hi sats, how are you doing? Hong Kong sure is some time ago already.
- The attatched ", Australia" part is probably because the initial labels are based on the titles of the connected Wikipedia articles. Labels shouldn't be used to disambiguate, we use descriptions for that. I updated Wubin (Q2332790) as an example. See Help:Label for more information. Wikidata:Glossary is also a good entry point.
