Motivation:

Proposed by: SamB (talk)

Well, it'd be nice to be able to tie the items for programming languages and the items for the relevant implementations together somehow; this seems a straightforward, appropriate way. SamB (talk) 20:31, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Could we make this more generic? Say have a property that specifies the standards that the output files comply with like writable file format (P1073) (or extend P1073 so it can be used for this? Filceolaire (talk) 01:47, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
@SamB: Is this indented for query language (Q845739) (e. g. SQL (Q47607), regular expression (Q185612)), or only for programming language (Q9143)? -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 08:18, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
May be better generize: implements the syntax? -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 08:22, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
@SamB: any further response? MSGJ (talk) 21:39, 10 June 2015 (UTC)
@MSGJ: uh, yeah, generalizing this enough to include query languages like SQL or XPath whatever would't be a terrible idea; perhaps it should be "implements computer language"? That could even work for programs that implement the JVM or .NET's CLI. (By the way, any ideas about how to represent the output language(s) of a compiler? Should every ISA also count as a computer language?)
[Oops, I forgot to sign this last night! SamB (talk) 14:25, 11 June 2015 (UTC)]
I would even further generalize and also include emulators or VMs. Rename the property implements, with software as domains, and programming languages, specifications and computer architectures as ranges. But we would need maybe to sort out the compilation/emulation stuff. It's pretty clear that a compiler produces programs in output and that emulators or virtual machines just executes ... That's too kind of implementation TomT0m (talk) 10:48, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

      • Just to clarify: In English, your statement would display "Oppose I don't get why you should separate this property from running time (P2047)", but as P2047 gets changed, it should read "from duration (P2047)". --- Jura 16:00, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
    • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. P2047 has nearly a thousand uses, and only 9 of them are for "duration". The rest are all for running time, an entirely separate concept, and one that actually deserves a property. "Duration" does not. The broken uses of P2047 should be removed, and the label/description/constraints should be changed back to running time. --Yair rand (talk) 21:54, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
      • @Yair rand: Can you explain how "duration" and "running time" are different concepts? Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 02:04, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
        • As far as I can tell, a "running time" is a specific type of duration. If I saw "duration" without qualifier on an item describing a creative work, I would assume it meant precisely "running time". There is unquestionably a need for the general "duration" property; the lack of items using it that way reflects the fact that, until last week, it wasn't worded that way. I've been working to remedy that, applying the property to items with duration, such as Qantas Flights 7 and 8 (Q16177169) and human pregnancy (Q11995). Swpb (talk) 17:55, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
        • @Thryduulf: An event/span of time has a "duration", which is the amount of time between the beginning of the event and the end of the event. A recorded work has a "running time", which is the intended duration (same sense) of any particular showing/use of the recording. The work itself is not an event, or span of time, or a class of events or spans of time. It has no duration. A light-year might always take a year for light to run through, but that doesn't mean the length itself has a duration of one year. Even more so, a recording intended to be viewed by means of a player over the course of one hour does not have a duration of one hour. --Yair rand (talk) 02:44, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
          • That's a dubious distinction, and one not adhered to by other schemas. I'm fine with a separate "running time" property, but it ought to be considered a subproperty of duration. Swpb (talk) 14:25, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
            • @Swpb: Looking at schema.org's description of duration, it doesn't look like it overlaps with duration of a span of time at all. It's just running time, extended to similar situations (length of time to cook a dish, do an exercise, have a flight from point a to point b, etc). --Yair rand (talk) 16:54, 21 January 2016 (UTC)
      • I agree with the practical considerations in Yair rand's opinion, but the problem is that the definition of the existing property varies across languages. The label in English is much more specific than the ones in other languages even if the descriptions were more restrictive in various languages. Given the somewhat limited use of the existing property, a new one could avoid such issues.

    Motivation

    There can be several minutes of difference between the running time of a movie depending on the different frame rates in which it is shown. E.g. the length of Star Wars VII. is 135:27 at 24 fps (theatrical) but 130:02 at 25 fps (PAL, European et al. TV standard) [1]. Máté (talk) 07:17, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

    {{Oppose}} this is very technical property, and it describes not the movie itself, but intermediate media used to transfer such creative work, another property may be proposed -- original media, to describe how movie was filmed. -- Vlsergey (talk) 06:47, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    @Vlsergey: please read the proposal again. I do not propose it as a property for creative works, but as a qualifier for their running time. – Máté (talk) 07:09, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    I've read proposal and studied example in proposal and would say that "135 minutes" will not depends on media used to transfer Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Q6074). It doesn't have a lot of sense with movies with sound. Frame rate just does not define duration for such movies -- one can't speed up or slow down movie by changing frame rate. It may have sense for soundless movies, but then scope of property (and example) should be redefined. -- Vlsergey (talk) 07:58, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    @Vlsergey: but it is common practice. To begin with neither NTSC or PAL is capable of the transmission of the 35 mm native 24 fps (for NTSC it is always slowed down to ~23.976 fps, for PAL it is always sped up to 25 fps, the sound along with it). This changes the running time by several minutes. Moreover, TV shows are often sped up for reruns to allow more time for ads, especially in the US. Many old films were somewhat sped up to fit the requirements of 21st century digital containers. There are differences in running time even between theatrical screening methods. – Máté (talk) 08:13, 2 February 2016 (UTC)
    (The change in the speed of the sound is also normally indicated by the change in fps. – Máté (talk) 08:16, 2 February 2016 (UTC))
    It's the first time i'm reading about changing sound of published movie. Okay, would you mind to provide example for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Q6074)? I.e. reliable sources that provides tables of different duration and fps? -- Vlsergey (talk) 05:55, 3 February 2016 (UTC)
    See the link in the proposal to the certificate by Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle der Filmwirtschaft (Q329126): [2]. Also, the British Board of Film Classification (Q861670) lists it at different running times for 70 mm IMAX and IMAX 3D: [3] (bottom of the page, open "Features" menu). – Máté (talk) 06:22, 3 February 2016 (UTC)

    Part of an ongoing effort to model copyright status. Jane023 (talk) 15:17, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

    Discussion

    Aside from the GLAM use-case (e.g. The bequest statement that is a formal part of the attribution to many artworks, as displayed on the walls in museums), this could be particularly useful when we eventually start handling Commons metadata in Wikidata (the Structured Data) project. Without an appropriate free-text field for attribution information it would require that we create a Wikidata item for every single uploader to Commons. Also, because the "image" property is already a direct link to the file on Commons, the "credit line" property could be a Qualifier to it. Wittylama (talk) 15:30, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

    Yes, so this property is a part of common image metadata currently used by GLAMs and Wikimedia projects, but not yet documented. See en:Credit line as an example of how metadata fields of artworks such as this one still have a long way to go. --Jane023 (talk) 15:35, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
    We already have author (P50), creator (P170) and others. I don't think that adding another property like this would help anything. Can't we just make an existing property slightly more generic to cover any possible attribution target? Nemo 15:56, 4 February 2016 (UTC)
    Turning "creator" into a free-text field would solve the problem I identify in my comment, but would also create further problems by breaking the structure of the property as it was originally created - to create the structured data relationship between works and authors. Also, it would not solve the question addressed by the proposal - of being able to incorporate GLAM metadata for their artworks for the bequest information (which is different to the authorship information). Wittylama (talk) 16:38, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

    This property is not to be confused with the attribution. This property has to do with provenance only. --Jane023 (talk) 18:29, 4 February 2016 (UTC)

    In the current form the proposal says "For Wikimedia commons, the original uploader"? What? Can you give an example of that? I also wonder what this has to do with copyright. Credit line is just a friendly way of providing provenance, it doesn't have to do anything with copyright. Multichill (talk) 17:21, 5 February 2016 (UTC)

                  • We should probably just create this one soon, as there is no opposition. Trying to define the scope of a property like this is usually too difficult and it is easier to see where it goes once we gather some data.

            • Do we? Is our system for constraints so limited?

       Not done

    Domainthis would be a qualifier on statements

    ExampleNorth Lincolnshire (Q175945) located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) no label (Q20989059) "with respect to" ceremonial county of England (Q180673),
    Lancashire (Q23077) shares border with (P47) Cheshire (Q23064) "with respect to" historic county of England (Q1138494)
    Motivation

    This would be a generalisation of applies to part (P518) to cover cases where the statement-value applies not to part of the subject, but in connection with an aspect of it.

    For example, with located in the administrative territorial entity (P131), one could indicate that some area was a subdivision of one area in respect of one scheme (eg current administration), but a subdivision of a different area in respect of a different scheme (eg a scheme of traditional subdivisions), or another area again in respect of further schemes (eg police areas, ambulance areas, fire service areas).

    This is a different thing to P518, which would would indicate that the statement only applied to part of a geographical area.

    Also, where we have an item that is covering multiple roles, it can be useful to indicate which role for that item a statement applies to -- for example if the same item is covering two different types of administrative areas that cover the same ground, there may be different values of head of government (P6) in relation to the different roles.

    This is not to preclude the items later being split into different items for the different roles; or more specific properties later being invented to cover particular types of relationships. But I think it is useful, at the very least, to have a generic property to allow information to be untangled in the structures we have, while discussions as to how those structures might be refined may be ongoing.

    Discussion
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment normally, the value of P31 wouldn't be repeated systematically as qualifier when an item is being used. If handeling two parallel hierarchies in P131 is difficult, maybe it's worth creating a distinct property for ceremonial counties. BTW there is a generic qualifier no label (P794). --- Jura 10:11, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
    It's not just a P131 problem, and it's not just ceremonial counties. For example, this could equally arise with identifiers, where different contexts of the same item might have different identifiers, sometimes even in the same database. This may occur where an item has more than one P31 -- there needs to be a way to say which one which identifier applies to.
    But even for the P131 case, it's not just the present ceremonial counties. There are other old administrative structures, and one would want to record in relation to which structure the hierarchical relationship existed. Jheald (talk) 18:26, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
    In general, I think this suggests you'd need separate items. We would really need samples to discuss this. --- Jura 23:43, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
    I agree. I'd say if an administrative unit is replaced by a new one we also should use "replaced by" to link the items old/new unit. author  TomT0m / talk page 09:55, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
    At Poplar and Limehouse (Q1032451) there is the statement replaces (P1365)Bethnal Green and Bow (Q3134130), but it only replaced parts of Bethnal Green and Bow (Q3134130), which still exists as a current constituency but with different borders (Poplar and Limehouse (Q1032451) is the majority of the previous Poplar and Canning Town (Q3403573) but unlike Bethnal Green and Bow it changed names and so got a new article/item. Other than listing wards (which don't have items afaict) with applies to part (P518) how do we reflect this? It seems like something this might work for. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 11:41, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
    @Thryduulf: I'd use separated from (P807) View with SQID for this.
    I think we should have a property like "located in the (exact) same territory" to link an administrative unit to the main (by convention) teritory of the administration of the country. author  TomT0m / talk page 12:42, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    "Contains, Contained by, Contains major portion of, Primarily contained by, Partially contains, Partially contains, Partially contained by" might work better than P131.
    In any case, I'm not sure if this or P131 is ideal to model gerrymandering (Q476310). --- Jura 13:12, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) is ill defined, if defined at all :) There is a least two things countained in it, locality and political organisation : american states depends on the general state who define some federal rules, and they are geographically contained (and they covers taken together) in the US territory/. More than Partially contains / Partially contained by I'd use a single symmetric property geographically overlaps with. I'd tend to be OK with Contains / Contained by, but we lack the covers property This is a similar case with class covering by subclasses in Wikidata:Property proposal/Generic § subclass, I'd propose a similar solution, for the same reason. Yet we would have to solve the political hierarchies/relationships beetween entities. author  TomT0m / talk page 14:10, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    Oh, and I still think we need a property to say the territory is shared because there might be several division (state, religious or whatever) with different administration but who aligns with state administration division for convenience. author  TomT0m / talk page 14:13, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    Comment. I have mostly held off from creating new items so far working on administrative entities in the UK. User:Danrok originally raised the concern that we were sometimes combining onto one item various different aspects of an entity, that were regarded as different things by the Ordnance Survey. He raised the case of Aberdeen (Q36405), which we have as both a city and a unitary authority. I haven't looked at the Scottish structures yet, but I think an analogue is eg Cambridge (Q350) which on WIkidata (and Wikipedia) we currently have as both a city and a non-metropolitan district. The OS has two records, one for the administrative district and one as a named place. In this case I think we probably are right to keep one record, as Cambridge the place for most purposes equals Cambridge the city, the boundaries of which are currently defined by the boundaries of the district. But as one gets down to the 'Civil Parish' level there may be questions when we have ABCD as both a village and a civil parish, does a stated area correspond to the area of the parish, or the area of the core settlement. The "co-classes" links at Wikidata:WikiProject_UK_and_Ireland/adm/England#Items_by_subdivision_type give counts of what other classes the administrative entities are also listed as instances of. On the other hand, until we have properties we want to hang off these items, I am loath to break them up -- for one thing, which item would the en-wiki article link to, and how would its infobox also find and extract statistics from the related item?
    One set of items I have started to break up is Ceremonial Counties, where the area administered by the County Council is now smaller than the full ceremonial county. So I have started creating the new items returned by this query. But even here, where we do have two different areas on the ground, I am wondering whether this is the right thing. The infobox for en:Lancashire or en:County Durham currently lists both (but not eg any of the other unitary authorities that are part of County Durham). Is it right to split the item? Or should one have area relating to the Ceremonial County and area relating to the Unitary Authority on the same item?
    For counties, I think there may be a case to split. For civil parishes there may be a case to keep together. Either way, I think there is a case to have the functional ability to be able to model the data both ways, whether for long-term purposes, or whether for short-term purposes, to clarify the data in the immediate term, while the long-term structure is being debated/discussed.
    (And this is without prejudice to other cases where one might want to make suitable qualifications -- eg the entities bordering the ceremonial county of Lancashire now, as opposed to the entities bordering its historical form. Yes, one can sometimes denote historic data with start & end dates; but it's nice also to be able to identify it with a particular structural arrangement, that may have been revised at different times in different places). Jheald (talk) 17:22, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
    I don't think you need to model items symmetric to enwiki articles. If one article includes two concepts, they can draw data with random access from two items. --- Jura 13:13, 2 November 2015 (UTC)
    The usual approach I use is to split things which contain multiple things (e.g. Lincolnshire (the ceremonial county) versus Lincolnshire (the administrative county)) but not split things which don't contain multiple things (e.g. a civil parish which contains only one settlement). Basically, if they didn't have the same name, what would we do? In the former case, it would be a ridiculous idea to merge two things with different names which contain different things (imagine merging England with the UK!). In the latter case, they're not clearly distinct items even with different names (I could imagine having different items, but I could also imagine having one item and saying "the village is called X but the civil parish is officially called Y").
    Another way to look at it: When you want to use the item, if you merge the items in the former case, it becomes far more awkward to link to the item, e.g. how do you distinguish someone born in the ceremonial county of Lincolnshire from the administrative county? You would need to keep adding qualifiers to the statements linking to the item to clarify which of the two you mean and it would be more sensible to just have separate items. On the other hand, if the civil parish only contains one settlement, it's far less of a problem, villages often don't have well-defined borders, so even if we know the exact coordinates of something, we might still have no idea whether it counts as being in the village or not, so for those it's easier to have a single item.

    • Symbol support vote.svg Support, but I think the problem with the units of measurement is far more complex. Imagine for example that the height of a mountain is declared in "feet" and the user has a preference for metric system, we need to somehow these data are converted and displayed according to the preference of each user. But also I see no point in stating the same information in different possible units. I just do not really know how it can be done, perhaps through some tool. --Almondega (talk) 23:32, 23 November 2015 (UTC)
      That's why in earlier proposal, we suggested to restrict to SI units. But this proposal is at least a proposal to store the correspondance beetween units in a generic way, for example with a statement

    • GA candidate.svg Weak support - it feels somehow wrong to me that you are doing this primarily through qualifiers, but the only alternative I can think of given wikidata's current structure is to use several claims rather than one and that can't be right either given how claims are generally independent of each other. I think what we really need is a "list" datatype in wikidata, so that you could have a claim of the sort 'item <product of> [number, item1, item2, ...]' as a single claim (without qualifiers). Is there any prospect for getting a list datatype supported? Other than that, I think a "division" or "ratio" property would be helpful too, when it's a product involving an inverse. ArthurPSmith (talk) 22:08, 24 November 2015 (UTC)

      • @Snipre: unknown value can be set via the web interface or the API, it is the snaktype "somevalue" rather than the normal "value" type. There is also "no value" available. But it does look odd here, which was related to my concern also. ArthurPSmith (talk) 14:51, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
        • ArthurPSmith I know what it is but this clearly shows the problem of this property where there is no way to use the value as valuable information. Snipre (talk) 15:32, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment @Snipre, ArthurPSmith: Qualifiers precise the meaning of the claim, and are "closed" or can be considered as closed, cf. Markus Krötzsch on this mail https://www.mail-archive.com/wikidata-l@lists.wikimedia.org/msg05880.html , as opposed to a list of claims that we can't assume to be complete, a claim and it qualifiers are assumed to be complete. If we have a list of qualifiers, there is no missing qualifier. As Here the order is not important, we do not need more to express a close list. The encoding is the one suggested by Markus on the "(Disjoint) union of" proposal upper. Overall I did not see a discussion about a list datatype and I think if we can do without it we don't have to add this to the already pretty loaded plate of the development team. author  TomT0m / talk page 15:02, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
      • @TomT0m: I hadn't read the above discussion on the Union proposal; that does make it seem more reasonable. In fact, I think that gives us a way to implement list values in a de facto manner through the use of qualifiers. Instead of using "unknown value", make the target of the product claim an item representing the data type, maybe no label (Q12148816) or set (Q36161), and then list the elements via specific qualifiers (we don't seem to have an "has element" property, so maybe that should be proposed also? ArthurPSmith (talk) 15:17, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
        • @ArthurPSmith: I don't really know why saying it is a list is useful, as we already know it's a list by definition of the property. It's something to express on the property item, I guess, no real need to make this redundant claim in every statement with this property. Maybe the type of the elements of the list, or their number, or a dummy labelled item with a comment/statements about the list (the number of elements) ? would be more useful. author  TomT0m / talk page 15:32, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
    • @TomT0m, Almondega: Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment what is the status of this proposal now that we have a mathematical expression datatype? It seems to me that there ought to be a way to combine "mathematical expression" with some variable substitution process via qualifiers (as the suggestion above incorporates qualifiers) to allow this to work. But I don't know technically quite how to do that. In any case, I don't think a separate property should be needed for each type of combination (product, ratio, etc). ArthurPSmith (talk) 14:23, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose When you are taking a product, it is really only useful to consider multiple terms. So having a single mathematical expression as the input to the "product" property is not useful. Also, we have to be clear about what ring or field we are working over when considering products and powers.--Jasper Deng (talk) 06:23, 17 March 2016 (UTC)
      • @Jasper Deng: We can just create items for other terms of the formula. I'll just note that the existing "formula" datatype is not clear about the meaning of the operators.

    • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose For me this seems to be an abuse of qualifiers and unknownvalue to get multivalued claims. The use of unknownvalue is also counterintuitive and so I think many users will not use these properties in the intended way. --Pasleim (talk) 10:29, 24 March 2016 (UTC)
      @Pasleim: It's not an abuse if we decide it's a legitimate way. Please don't stop stuffs just because of a vague feeling. The intended way can be corrected, it's just a matter of a correct constraint and a message on the use page with a few usage instruction or a pointer to the property page.

    Motivation

    With any kind of commercial product, in particular individual models of computer hardware, or computer software packages, there is generally both a release date (the date the product becomes commercially available) and a discontinued date (the date the product ceases to be commercially available.) After the discontinued date, instances of the item are usually still in existence, but they can no longer be commercially acquired in new condition. While I was principally looking for this property for use for computer models and computer software, I can see it being applicable to any commercial product, e.g. individual models of cars or aircraft. This property would mark the end period of which Property:P577 (release date) is the beginning. SJK (talk) 05:49, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

    Addendum: I don't think the property is even unique to commercial products per se. An open source project, even if never a "commercial product", can be taken to be discontinued on the date at which all of its developers cease actively working on it. SJK (talk) 06:05, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
    Further addendum: note that service retirement is similar but not quite the same. If we look at the lifecycle of most products, it could be summarised as: (1) announcement date (announced but not yet available to be ordered) (2) available for order date (date on which orders will first be accepted, but not yet shipped) (3) first customer ship date (date first unit ships to customer) (4) withdrawal from marketing date (new orders will no longer be accepted after this date) (5) last customer ship date (date last unit manufactured ships to customer) (6) end of service (post-sales service/support/maintenance ends at this date). I know for computer software, (6) is often distinct from (4)/(5). P730 might be interpreted as (6) instead of (4)/(5). It looks like P730 was created for aircraft, but I dare suggest the lifecycle is actually quite similar for both aircraft and computer hardware/software - there are many models of aircraft which you can no longer order new from the manufacturer, but the manufacturer still provides field service for, which demonstrates the distinction between (6) and (4)/(5).SJK (talk) 09:13, 13 February 2016 (UTC)

    has part is tricky. We don't know for sure if our subject item is an individual star, in which case we could enumerate the star, or a class of object (the star class represents all the stars). There is a difference here : we should have to qualify the statements to say that the universe has stars (in general) with the number of stars it actually has, whereas there is only one sun and we're sure of it. I often see the two mixed up and I don't really like that. I'd like to have a non ambiguous property that we for sure use to link individual to their kind of classes, that we know can correctly be qualified by a number, whereas the other can't by design and links instances to instances. I think this is a potential improvement for quality management. Overall, per Refining "part of" there is conceptually work to be done with this property. author  TomT0m / talk page 21:34, 18 February 2016 (UTC)
    • Symbol support vote.svg Support I agree "has part" is ambiguous as to whether its target is an instance (token) or a class (type). One suggestion I have, is maybe we should label this "has part of the class" instead of "has part of the type". The current (English) wikidata terminology seems to be "class" not "type", since we have an "subclass of" property not "subtype of", so we should try to stay consistent with that terminology in this property also.

That way each crossing could be a part of the set of crossings, and the order could be defined as part of that set. Sets can be ordered numerically, temporally, spatially, administratively, etc. and an item could be part of any number of sets. Attaching something like 'next crossing' directly to the bridge item or 'next higher league' to a sport league assumes a lots of particular perspective in how one is looking at the crossing and the set. That means for every different kind of ordered set, it would have to have its own set of properties, with their own set of constraints, etc. Having a general structure set up for ordered sets would, on the other hand, allow us to use the same structure and properties whether we are defining the order of crossings down a river, intersections along a road, leagues or organizations within a hierarchy, etc. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 22:15, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

    @Jura, Josh Baumgartner, Kopiersperre, Antrocent, Ash Crow: I have changed this so the data type is number with units. Since any item can be used as a unit this would mean we don't need a qualifier; we can just say Fryšták (Q1471150) → 0.514477 - units female (Q6581072); (point in time:2015). OK? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 03:40, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

    I think a qualifier of some sort was the right approach and I think this is the wrong way to use unit support.
    There is no way for a machine to know that the number here does not mean "0.514477 measured in females" (just over half of one female person) but should instead be interpreted as "51.4477% are female". Doing it this way creates multiple ways to interpret the data type which I don't think is a good idea. Percentages/ratios do not have units (which is another reason it seems like the wrong approach), but I think the best way we have for entering percentages is to enter a number between 0 and 100 and use "percent" as the unit, so that you can tell from the unit that the number does not represent a concrete number but rather a percentage. That would also mean that it displays much better for humans, because (as far as I'm aware) we don't have a way to have numbers between 0 and 1 displayed as a percentage. - Nikki (talk) 09:36, 23 September 2015 (UTC)

    Je prévois dans le cyclisme d'utiliser massivement les données de Wikidata pour centraliser ici le maximum de données possibles, l'objectif étant d'une part de laisser du temps aux contributeurs des petites versions linguistiques, de leur laisser la possibilité de générer des articles très rapidement, de sorte à ce qu'il ne leur reste plus qu'à rédiger, et d'autre part de centraliser au maximum la maintenance et la mise à jour. Ce chantier va être étalé tout au long de l'année 2015.
    Sur les articles concernant les courses cyclistes, nous associons à chaque édition le vainqueur, le deuxième et le troisième, c'est-à-dire les coureurs qui montent sur le podium. Il existe actuellement une propriété winner (P1346), déjà utilisée dans Four Days of Dunkirk (Q513691) et Paris-Arras Tour (Q3365097), mais il nous manque une propriété pour indiquer le deuxième et une autre pour le troisième. L'objectif étant à terme de générer les tableaux présents dans chaque article de course cycliste, comme fr:Quatre jours de Dunkerque#Palmarès, depuis Wikidata. Le coureur arrivé deuxième et celui arrivé troisième sont également demandés dans les infobox d'étapes de courses cyclistes, telles que la 20e étape du Tour de France 2014. Cette demande pourrait permettre de faciliter le travail sur un grand nombre d'articles et dans de nombreuses langues.

This project will be spread throughout the year 2015.
    Of the articles about cycling races, we associate with each edition the winner, the second and the third, that is to say the riders on the podium. There is currently a winner (P1346) property already used in Four Days of Dunkirk (Q513691) and Paris-Arras Tour (Q3365097), but we lack a property to indicate the second and one for third. The objective is ultimately to generate the tables present in all cycling races article, like fr:Quatre jours de Dunkerque#Palmarès, since Wikidata. The second runner arrived and the third are also requested in the infobox stages of cycling races, such as 20e étape du Tour de France 2014.

    • Topsport Vlaanderen-Baloise 2015 (Q18746658) has got 9 entries on this site - one each for every year from 2008 to 2016 though all of these have the teamcode 'TSV' so I have added that to your example. (Search for team with no year selected and code = TSV) The search function uses asp so the search string isn't in the url so we can't use the 'formatter property' to construct a search to get the list of 9 entries.
    Womens teams have a different url (change 'men' to 'women' in the url above).
    all this means that we can't use the CQranking team code to generate a link to the team page on CQranking.com unless we have separate mens and womens properties and we give the value as "year=2015&teamcode=TSV" instead of just "TSV" then each team has as many entries for this property as it has entries on CQranking. Is that how you want to do this or do you just want the team code but don't need to link to the team CQranking page? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 15:24, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

      I had the same impression until I saw the example. Maybe the English name of this property should be reconsidered. I leave this for the native speakers, though.
      About the re-election: Supposed we have one statement of position held (P39) for several consecutive periods, there certainly should be qualifiers linking to all the re-elections. But maybe a separate position held (P39) statement for every period (with a single link to [re-]election) would be a better choice. On the other hand, how will we use the replaces (P1365) and replaced by (P1366) qualifiers in the case of re-election? Could an item link to itself?--Shlomo (talk) 12:55, 6 December 2015 (UTC)

      "During" seems also ambiguous (even if probably less ambiguous than "in") - it can also refer to time or to event that takes place at the same time as the election does. What about "elected through"? Or maybe just "election"? (Just proposals, I'm not a native speaker of English and I can't feel the slight differences between the options so well...)--Shlomo (talk) 16:42, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
      To me (a native English speaker) "elected during" is at least as likely to be a time field than "elected in". My first thought would be to expect things like "elected during 2015 (Q2002)" or "elected during 43rd United Kingdom Parliament (Q21084460)" and less likely to refer to an election. "Elected at" is the best short name I can come up with, "elected as a result of" is longer but not necessarily better. It also implies that has cause (P828) as a qualifier to their position would work. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 23:08, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I still do not know how to handle cases, when people get their "position held", not by getting more votes than anybody else, but by replacing somebody who temporarly or for the rest of the period cannot "hold their position" any longer. Parental leave, retirement and death also affects MPs. An example: Börje Vestlund (Q512590) is since 2015-10-01 an MP of the Swedish parlaiment, not because he was elected as such, but as a replacement for Stefan Löfvén, who holds the position as Prime Minister. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 17:34, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
      As for MPs' replacements, they are not just anybody who comes and is ready to continue the job; usually they took part in the same election and on the same list as the replaced MP, they just ended "below the line" according to the number of seats gained by that particular list. But the legitimacy for becoming an MP is their election result. (I asked in another discussion, if such candidates can be included in successful candidate (P991) statements...) Anyway I assume, that their position can be described as "elected at/through/whatever" the election even if there was a considerable time span between the election and obtaining the position.--Shlomo (talk) 09:22, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
      A more serious problem are the MPs (or any other "elected" body), that are not elected at all. In some parliaments (councils a.s.o.) there are several seats reserved for representatives of some particular groups or regions. Such MPs are not always elected, but nominated by another body, or their MP-ship is connected with another function a.s.o. Surely they shouldn't be described as "elected at", but with another property (if there is one...) That could cause problems with constraints, scripts that use this data for infoboxes etc. What about a more general property, something like "legitimated by", which usually will link to the election, but can refer to another facticity as well if needed.--Shlomo (talk) 09:22, 4 January 2016 (UTC)

Josh Baumgartner (talk) 20:46, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
      Pictogram voting question.svg Question @Joshbaumgartner: Can you point me at an explanation for why first and family name have item datatype? It seems like an extra burden on contributors to reify names, and probably leads to great under-population of these properties. And it doesn't seem ontologically sound to link items as siblings simply because they share a name. It's as if we make homonyms siblings under a word simply because of a lexical coincidence. Thanks, Bovlb (talk) 17:40, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
      @Bovlb: No, I am not well versed in exactly why it was set up that way and personally I agree with you that it is a burden to have to learn the whole system of adding items for names, and then sub-items for specific name applications, even having separate items by gender for some of them, and then go create new items and sometimes additional structure every time you just want to identify someone's name. I certainly have shied away from putting in names that don't already have items because it is tangential to what I am putting in and I want to stay focused on my main objective...for example I may be updating player-to-team links and wouldn't mind filling in player first, last, etc. names, while I'm there, but if it takes going down a side road and having to create new items, it isn't always worth the time. However, the reason I listed my recommendation to change to 'item' is because we should be consistent in what system we use, and unless we are going to re-visit how we do first and last names, then it is the system that is in place right now. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 18:33, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
      @Joshbaumgartner: I can see one advantage, which is that it gives you name translations for free, although I'm not aware of any attempt to exploit that. The fact that it discourages addition of names seems like a major drawback. Bovlb (talk) 16:55, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

This arrangement also allows the patronymic to be adjusted by the person's ethnic group (P172); if the same name item has different patronymics assigned to it in different languages, people with different values for ethnic group (P172) can have different patronymics shown when needed. ––– For those people whose fathers are not on Wikidata, there could be a sister property 'patronymic from' that takes a name item, so that the patronymic can be generated from that name alone.

    Discussion

    P373 are from the old ages in Wikidatas history when Commons wasn't connected to Wikidata. Now it is, and I think we should rethink how we technically connect ourself with Commons. I here propose the idea that the current Property for Commonscat: Commons category (P373) who has datatype:string should be replaced with an item who has item as datatype. If this proposal is successfull, maybe the same thing should happen with Commons gallery (P935)? Lavallen (talk) 18:42, 17 March 2014 (UTC)

    And category and article in the same item is not going to happen. Multichill (talk) 21:49, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
    What is the benefit of P373 if there is topic's main category (P910) having an item that links to Commons? As of now this looks like duplication to me, or worse storing correct and outdated information at the same time, e.g. Aveiro District (Q210527) and Category:Aveiro District (Q8280642) which are linked twice with each other (P310/P910) and where the category item links to commons:Category:Aveiro District both link to commons:Category:Aveiro (district) via P373. The longer P373 stays, the more outdated information will be created. Tamawashi (talk) 05:13, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

A property dedicated to sectional views would be useful for things as different as an organ (Q712378), a building (Q41176) or a machine (Q11019), but also to store the altimetric diagram of a cycling race (Q15091377), for instance.

    embed URL

    Descriptionformatter URL for embeddable content
    Data typeString
    DomainRFC 3986
    Allowed valuesSame as formatter URL
    Example
    Motivation

    P1651 (YouTube video identifier) only lists non-embeddable URLs, removing users from their current viewing point. In mobile environments doing so may require launching a separate application, losing previous application state. Beyond video: Web comics can be embedded (XKCD encourages this), photographs, 360 panoramas, podcasts, legislation (text), and even emulators.

    Which is preferable? A formatter URL qualifier (embed=Document/Image/Audio/Video/Web) or another property (embed URL) to indicate this?

    Challenges:
    <iframe>s requires a fixed width and height. They do not scale like <img> (automatic height with given width), hopefully this will be fixed. Media type information (document, picture, sound, video, or JavaScript) might be useful. Audio containers should have non-zero width/height (for buttons). Dispenser (talk) 20:19, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

    Discussion

    Given that the Youtube ID is shared between the direct URL and the URL for embedding, and given that the ID itself is stored for YouTube video ID (P1651), I don't quite see what purpose that would serve. Alphos (talk) 12:10, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

    The idea is programs can embed the video instead of launching a new browser window. The alternative is every program special casing every service. Dispenser (talk) 23:58, 22 January 2016 (UTC)
    this proposal makes only sense to me if we use it as property on property pages, . But is there beside YouTube video ID (P1651) another property on which we could use it? --Pasleim (talk) 15:02, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
    The commercial service Embed.ly lists 300+ providers, but most of those are proxied snippets (e.g. New York Times article). I have added 3 more example properties to the list. Dispenser (talk) 13:25, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

    Agreed. I changed it in the proposal. --Srittau (talk) 18:44, 25 March 2016 (UTC)
    @LydiaPintscher: Can we get your opinion? I'm still undecided if it should be a standalone property or a qualifier of formatter URL (like regexes on IMDb). Dispenser (talk) 22:02, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
    It seems to me that in spirit this is very similar to the distinction we already make for formatter URI and formatter URI for RDF resource (P1921). So imho it is best done as a separate property. --LydiaPintscher (talk) 07:27, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

    • Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral I'm not very happy with this approach, unless there exists some kind of notation of how this identifier is supposed to be used which can be used programmatically, preferrably from Lua. Maybe there should be some kind of pseudocode allowed in the formatter URL's? If not, the ID should be something the formatter URL can use. The way it's noted now, you can't use it unless you have "the key" which isn't present here. Stigmj (talk) 22:52, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
      • Most probably I won't answer your question, Stigmj, but I'll give a try. So if you provide local formatter URL at Wikipedia, then you can use this property in such URL (this is in wikitext, which of course will be very easy convertable to Lua): http://www.cricketarchive.com/Archive/Players/{{#expr:trunc({{{id}}}/1000)}}/{{{id}}}/{{{id}}}.html. Having correct formatter URL at Wikidata, so everything is pretty, isn't possible at current stage. The ID at Wikidata itself will be clickable, I assume, as we have a gadget for that. Why not having "normal" ID for working URL generation? Well, one of most important reasons is to not have possible problems in future, if website admins decide to change URL format. And "41/41464/41464" isn't ID, "41464" is :) IMHO, not having working URL for an ID is not good enough reason not to store values themselves at Wikidata. At least, not in this case. --Edgars2007 (talk) 11:58, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
        • Edgars2007: Is it possible to use the ID on the site somehow without knowing the exact "encoding" in the URL? If so, I'm all for it. What I don't like is a collection of purely internal ID's which can't be used or referenced in any way without knowing how to use them. In this exact case, it's possible to "encode" the URL correctly on wikipedia if you know how it's constructed, but this information is *not* present in the wikidata-entry and would possibly prevent the usage from other parties not privy to this information. As a minimum, the property should be marked as such. Stigmj (talk) 17:44, 2 April 2016 (UTC)
        • Edgars2007: And to add to this, Freebase, Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes uses "multipart" values which has direct mapping to URL's in their systems. I'm pretty sure they have some kind of internal ID as well, which we can't see or know about. I can't see the rationale for having this ID be any different. Yes, enwiki may have done it differently for this exact ID, but that's not a good enough reason for me. Local formatter URL's are not "user friendly" and I would like to avoid them when possible. The only reason I can see is if the ID is actually usable for any other purpose than the lookup via a direct URL. Stigmj (talk) 23:02, 2 April 2016 (UTC)

    @Edgars2007, Løken, Pigsonthewing: ✓ Done. It is certainly useful to record an ID, even if our simple URL formatter approach can not create a link from that. But links can be derived programatically, for example in templates. --Srittau (talk) 13:09, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

    @Edgars2007, Srittau, Løken, Pigsonthewing: I'm am questioning what the real ID is in this case. Why is the ID "41464" in this case and not "41/41464/41464"? Is there some corroborating information to this effect other than the simple programmatically possibility of constructing the URL knowing only the "last part" of the "long ID"? As I have asked before, is there any way of finding or using this ID in the website other than constructing the URL needed to access the information? Edgars2007 alleges the URL could possibly be changed in the future and an ID with "41/41464/41464" may not be valid anymore. This is true, but then the ID could also change altogether unless we have some kind of assurance of the stability of the said structure. All signs points to the "41464"-part being the "ID" as noted, but unless this can be corroborated and possible to use in some way other than constructing the URL's, I can't see the problem with using a "41/41464/41464"-notation as the ID. We already have precedence for this in many other identifiers. Stigmj (talk) 14:18, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Those files have multiple ways to auto-match records, including geonames, dbpedia, freebase, and more. I'd love to hear more from @Thinkcontext: about ways to automatically populate this information. Runner1928 (talk) 16:16, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
      • @Runner1928: topics.nytimes.com has what I believe is a complete listing of the topics which correspond to the concepts. It should be a simple matter to scrape the topic text and do a lookup against the API to get Wikipedia, Freebase or DBPedia reference. data.nytimes.com contains RDF dumps which have all the information so it would be best to do a mass import of that first and then setup a bot to monitor the topic listing.
    • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment These "formatter URL" values will NOT work with wikidata - it requires a developer API key - the "your-API-key" piece. When you follow the links as given it returns an error page ("Inactive developer"). Unless we can find a URL link for these concepts that does not have that dependency on personal API keys, I am uncomfortable with adding these identifiers to wikidata. ArthurPSmith (talk) 20:27, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
    • @ArthurPSmith: I see, thanks for the comment. As you can tell I've been having difficulty figuring out how and where this information would best fit into wikidata. I think there's considerable value to having it in wikidata, do you have any suggestion as to where it would best fit? As a generic property? Thinkcontext (talk) 14:56, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
      • @Thinkcontext: I agree it would be nice to include this data somehow in wikidata. But I don't think you have the right data format here. Looking at their "about" page the ID's should be numbers, not the words you list, and the formatter should be simply http://data.nytimes.com/$1 - as that about page says, "For instance our subject heading for "Park Slope, Brooklyn" is associated with the URI http://data.nytimes.com/60694995023816375851. " So I think the ONLY thing wikidata should have is those numbers (represented as external identifiers) linked to the associated wikidata items via something like a "NY Times Semantic Concept ID". We definitely don't want to have some dependence on a developer API - they provide open linked data, we should use that. ArthurPSmith (talk) 15:04, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
      • Hmm, I just noticed this issue was brought up previously (earlier proposal still on this page). However, I think your argument is wrong. If NY Times is not providing this data without restricting it (via developer API) then it should not be in wikidata. We should take what they give us as open, even if it hasn't been kept up to date. There are English text labels associated with each concept at data.nytimes.com (the skos:prefLabel value) and there is also a search API link provided, so I don't think your concerns about being unable to look things up from the number are valid. And I think the number is the only reasonable thing we can use here. ArthurPSmith (talk) 15:19, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
        • @ArthurPSmith: The text labels are not only exposed by the API. In fact the reason I feel the text labels have great value for linked data applications is that they are exposed within the HTML of articles as metadata. Example from todays paper, What to Watch For on Super Tuesday has <meta name="per" content="Clinton, Hillary Rodham" /> (as well as a variety of other tags for other people and subjects) which NYT lets us know corresponds to http://dbpedia.org/resource/Hillary_Rodham_Clinton. Its extremely rare for a major news organization to connect their own internal processes to the linked data cloud in this way, we would potentially be giving up a great deal of value in not recording this information. As for the numerical ids, I personally don't see the value of them and feel having obsolete ids is confusing clutter. Thinkcontext (talk) 16:01, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
          • @Thinkcontext: Can you give a reference for why you think the numerical ids are obsolete? There is no sign of it on the NY Times web pages, including the one you linked to - the Semantic API page explicitly says: "As part of its work on linked data New York Times R&D created http://data.nytimes.com, a site where we publish the vocabulary used to index concepts. The site assigns a unique URI to each concept, and in the form of http://data.nytimes.com/concept_uri. This "concept_uri" is a mandatory parameter for accessing the Semantic API with a linked data reference." and that "concept_ui" is the numerical id we are talking about here. The REASON it is important to have a numerical id instead of a name is - suppose you have an article tagged with "Clinton, Hillary Rodham" - and then she gets divorced and changes her name back to "Rodham, Hillary". Suddenly all your old semantic concept id's are invalid. But the numerical id refers to the same person and is still good. It doesn't look to me like the NY Times is providing a strong guarantee regarding the permanence of the concept labels, and the concept_uri values are being promoted. Unless you can provide some more evidence on why you think the data.nytimes.com stuff is really abandoned it seems to me the numerical ids are the ones we need here. Or perhaps you can give a more complete use case describing an instance where the labels would be helpful to have in wikidata and a numerical id would not? I'm not seeing the problem right now. ArthurPSmith (talk) 16:42, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
            • @ArthurPSmith: I feel that the numerical id is obsolete because data.nytimes.com has not been updated for around 5 years.This snapshot from archive.org in 2011 has the exact same number of entities listed as today, so no new items have entered that data set. I have examined the SKOS data dumps and verified that they contain the same number. The individual record for Hillary Clinton on that site lists a last used time in 2010. I'd definitely prefer to have a permanent id but if they have abandoned it I don't think it would be good for wikidata to use it, especially because they are over 20,000 items short now. Your point about changing names is a good one, I think these would be better as generic properties rather than authority control ids, I guess I'll resubmit. Thinkcontext (talk) 19:37, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
              • well the snapshot you point to says exactly the same thing as the current page about the total too, so apparently the 20,000 missing hasn't changed since 2011: "The New York Times uses approximately 30,000 tags to power our Times Topics Pages. It is our intention to publish all of these tags as linked open data." Is there any third-party discussion on what the NY Times is doing on this, or a more recent quote from them?

Looking at topics.nytimes.com the list seems at least as out of date as whatever is on data.nytimes.com. Not a single one of the 2016 presidential contenders is listed on the "People" topics page, for example, not even Trump or Clinton. Maybe the best way forward would be to email NY Times and try to convince them to use wikidata ID's as semantic concepts, if they are having trouble maintaining their own database.

    @Thinkcontext, Thryduulf, Runner1928: ✓ Done. This was a hard one. Frankly speaking, the linked data initiative of the New York Times is a mess. On the one hand you have an open, non-restricted API, using surrogate keys, with data under a CC license. This has seemingly been abandoned five years ago. On the other hand, you have a restricted, registration-required, unfree API, using natural keys, for which we have no stability guarantee, but which seems to be kept fairly up-to-date. (I registered and got an API key. I checked two items. Zaha Hadid (Q47780), who died today and has an obituary on www.nytimes.com had not been updated. On the other hand, the entry for Bernie Sanders was last updated in February.) Both APIs have no references to each other. Nevertheless I think there is inherent value in linking our concepts to that of the New York Times as a major news outlet. The outdated data is no options, so we have to use the current API, despite its problems. Let's hope their data becomes more open in the future. --Srittau (talk) 20:08, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

    The IUCN Red List did not include taxa that went extinct before 1500 AD. --Succu (talk) 11:50, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
    And it doesn't include taxa other than species, as genus, families or whole phylla. -Theklan (talk) 20:37, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am not happy with this: Tyrannosaurus rex is not "extinct" but is know to us only from fossils (bones and perhaps eggs). I would rather see a property "fossil". Or "instance of fossil". - Brya (talk) 05:26, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
    If a taxon is not extant, then it is extinct. It can be known from fossils or not, that's the evidence for us to know that it was extant when it lived. -Theklan (talk) 20:37, 4 March 2016 (UTC)
    The point is that these are two different things: "only known from fossils" and "extinct". And for Tyrannosaurus rex the label "extinct" is not a meaningful one.
            And "extant" is here and now (it is plain silly to say "to those dinosaurs that were taxonomists T. rex was an extant species", as we don't know of any dinosaurs that were taxonomists; in fact even the idea that there might have been dinosaurs that could read will be regarded as far-fetched by the scientific community). - Brya (talk) 11:02, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
    I don't think is silly to say that Tyrannosaurus rex or Homo habilis are extinct species, nor Australopithecus an extinct genus. -Theklan (talk) 23:33, 6 March 2016 (UTC)
    Whoever said that was silly? But to say that Tyrannosaurus rex is extinct is quite uninformative. The dodo is "extinct", there are quite a few species that are "presumed extinct" (they might still be found alive) and there are species that are "extinct in the wild" (there are some in zoos or gardens). But Tyrannosaurus rex is in a quite different category and "only known from fossils". - Brya (talk) 05:49, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    An interesting discussion. I guess that the extinction status (basically true/false) should be supplemented with an estimated time (date) of extinction (eg. 68,000,000 MY). That would allow us to somewhat categorize the extinct species. There is a grey zone between "fossil only" and "extinct" and I would be afraid of drawing a clear line between those two. As for "extinct in the wild", we already have such information in the IUCN categories, don't we (E vs. EW categories) - extinction in the wild vs. individuals in ZOO only applies to year>1500 species and that's covered by IUCN quite well.--Vojtěch Dostál (talk) 07:26, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Indeed, IUCN covers most of the cases of "extinct" (in the narrow sense), but not the dodo. Nor the moa, which is more of a grey area. In many cases, age will work, but its presence would have to be made a requirement. Also, there are lot of fossils, and these are not necessarily well documented (or defined). In those cases there is nothing like an estimated time of extinction. - Brya (talk) 11:43, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    As far as I know when a mass extinction occurs (as in the Permian) there is an extinction. So if there's an extinction then those taxa are now extinct. They were alive. Then all of them died. And now they're extinct. -Theklan (talk) 12:20, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    The organisms that went extinct then can be subdivided in two groups: 1) those that are known to us (at least in part) by fossils and 2) those that are not known to us at all. - Brya (talk) 17:43, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Those that are not known to us at all, is to say, the unknowns unknown are not eligible for Wikidata. -Theklan (talk) 22:40, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Fossilworks and PaleoDB make no distinction (dodo at Fossilworks) between „real fossils” and taxa that became extinct in the holocene (another example Mammuthus primigenius (Q3699044)). --Succu (talk) 15:24, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Fossilworks looks at this from the other end: everything in Fossilworks is fossil. - Brya (talk) 17:43, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Yes, both have a field extant. --Succu (talk) 21:54, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
    Because there are fossils of extant species and taxa. For example Homo sapiens is known by fossils and we are here. -Theklan (talk) 22:40, 7 March 2016 (UTC)

I consider this as a very valuable resource in Wikidata, as this data only is available on the mirTarBase project website or as an MS Excel sheet. Integrating this data into Wikidata would add a great resource for understanding gene expression and also will allow to enrich the Wikipedia articles on microRNAs with a reliable resource on microRNA targets.

When asked for more information by 2 opposes, no information is provided. When I mark the proposal as not done, additional information is provided. The information needed to create a property should be provided upon the moment of proposing the property. And still not all information is provided. A link to a template isn't a property title.

            • I assure you I read the proposal in full. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:54, 13 November 2015 (UTC)
            • I assure the same. The description is "..." and the motivation is "(Add your motivation for this property here.)". I've gone further and read the linked template, but it is a WP template and doesn't say anything about Wikidata implementation. If we don't have that information, then there really isn't anything to work with here and thus my opposition until the proposal is fleshed out to actually explain what the property is, what it is meant to do, and how it should be implemented.

              • At least one of you had a look at the template. I wonder if there are several ways to implement this. Personally, I think there would be just one. Josh, could you list the variants? --- Jura 09:12, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
    • I have added what I think is the necessary information for the property, as I think it seems useful. I invite Jura1 to check it, and everyone else to see if they support now we have the information filled in. Silverfish (talk) 19:03, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
      • Josh Baumgartner might think there would be several ways of doing it, so I'm curious to learn more about them. --- Jura 16:26, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
    • Symbol support vote.svg Support @Silverfish, Jura1: This proposal looks good now. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 19:58, 19 November 2015 (UTC)
      • @Joshbaumgartner: can you advise us of possible alternate ways of implementing this, given the template at Wikipedia? --- Jura 10:15, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
        • Josh doesn't seem (and he can correct me if I'm wrong) to be saying there are sensible alternative ways of implementing this, but previously opposed the property as there was no implementation given. I've now provided one he seems happy with. Silverfish (talk) 19:27, 21 November 2015 (UTC)
          • As he is a property creator and given that he opposed it initially, I think he might have several options in mind. I think it's important to review them before we support or oppose this property. @Joshbaumgartner: please comment. --- Jura 12:54, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

    @Silverfish, Joshbaumgartner: ✓ Done. The only opposing votes were for formal reasons, which have been resolved since. --Srittau (talk) 18:26, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
