See also[edit]

This page is for the proposal of new properties.

Before proposing a property

  1. Check if the property already exists by looking at Wikidata:List of properties (manual list) and Special:ListProperties.
  2. Check if the property was previously proposed or is on the pending list.
  3. Check if you can give a similar label and definition as an existing Wikipedia infobox parameter, or if it can be matched to an infobox, to or from which data can be transferred automatically.
  4. Select the right datatype for the property.
  5. Start writing the documentation based on the preload form below and add it in the appropriate section.

Creating the property

  1. Once consensus is reached, change status=ready on the template, to attract the attention of a property creator.
  2. Creation can be done 1 week after the proposal, by a property creator or an administrator.
  3. See steps when creating properties.

Error report

For a long time now the Property:P1368 is not working any more. Please try the Wikidata property example on https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P1368 or the values of all the items using this property.

If a property is old or defective, it should be repaired or at least signed as defective.

What shall we do? (I think, the dev team can build a script to declare automatically such defective ID properties as dead links anyhow.) Doc Taxon (talk) 11:09, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Discussion

It just seems to be a modification in the base URL. I modified it in the definition of the property and it seems to work. Please make a check to verify it works. Toto256 (talk) 12:01, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

Cultural Information System of Mexico.[edit]

   Under discussion
DescriptionSistema de Información Cultural (Q51939336) (SIC, in Spanish) is an open data published database of the cultural sector in Mexico. It contains information of GLAM sector as venues (galleries, libraries, public book stores, archives, museums, cinemas, theaters), publications (books and papers) projects (granted projects by the government), indigenous people (projects and media); persons (authors, artists) and much more derived from public cultural sector.

Motivation

I'm managing a GLAM collaboration with Secretariat of Culture of Mexico. This datasets are available to fill a huge gap about Mexican Culture sector in Wikidata and will add info from my country. Also will be a good first step for another datasets that will be provided by the Government secretariat. ProtoplasmaKid (talk) 01:01, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Interesting, but according to formatter URL = different properties are apparently needed. On a different matter, property's name should be more aligned with our standards for external ID's: "Sistema de Información Cultural ID". strakhov (talk) 20:02, 2 May 2018 (UTC)
    True but that strange to have several property to point to one same and only database. Would it be possible to have a formatter URL with $1 and $2? It's not the first time that this question arise (I asked recently something similar on Wikidata:Project_chat#Tricky_conditions_for_a_CIL_property, and I remember seeing it elsewhere several times before). @Lea Lacroix (WMDE), Lydia Pintscher (WMDE): do you have an idea for this? Otherwise, a jacky-dirty way would be to use "biblioteca&table_id=7016" as $1 but it's not ideal at all. Cdlt, VIGNERON (talk) 18:37, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the ping, Sadads. ProtoplasmaKid, it seems a good idea to add this datasets but what Strakhov and VIGNERON said is essential. The trick of Vigneron would solve it but it would be very dirty to have, I think. Unless Lea or Lydia gives another solution, another way could be to have one property for dataset, I mean "Sistema de Información Cultural Library ID" (identificador Sistema de Información Cultural de biblioteca), "Sistema de Información Cultural Museum ID" (identificador Sistema de Información Cultural de museo), etc... There are another cases in which we use different properties to refer to the same website but different datasets, for example Dialnet with the author, articles, books and journals identifiers. In this case, each table type could be an independent property with its own formatter url. Regards, Ivanhercaz Plume pen w.png (Talk) 19:26, 16 May 2018 (UTC)
@strakhov: Does the emerging consensus of creating separated properties work for you? We shouldn't have to create another discussion if that is the case. Sadads (talk) 19:23, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
I was the first one who suggested that (creating different properties), so you could figure out I've no problem at all with this "emerging consensus". Cheers. strakhov (talk) 19:35, 22 May 2018 (UTC)
I just wanted to clarify, since your !Vote is still an "oppose", Sadads (talk) 20:14, 22 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose seems to be the wrong datatype if not limited to the British Library tags. String is what we use for similar (e.g. Twitter tags). If the use wont be limited to a single item, it shouldn't be an external identifier either (compare with some other classifications).
    --- Jura 18:08, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
    • @Jura1: It's an identifier, it's external => it ought to have an external identifier type. Much better for it to appear below the fold than cluttering up the main section of statements on an item. If you want to record whether it is generally 1-to-1 or not (and, yes, it's probably not, if one starts going beyond institutional tagging), that's what constraint statements on property pages are for. Jheald (talk) 18:18, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
    • I agree with you, but that's not the conclusion from the discussion about the string datatype conversion. Besides, mere GUI things can be changed otherwise. So to be consistent with others, it should use string datatype.
      --- Jura 18:21, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
      • @Jura1: A particular aspect of our GUI could be changed, but in this case its unlikely -- how should the GUI distinguish string-valued statements for genuine strings that ought to appear above the fold, from string-valued statements for external identifiers, which ought to appear below the fold. Much better to make all external identifiers external-identifier valued.
Even more difficult, how are external applications supposed to recognise strings that refer to external identifers, if they are not external-identifier valued? For example, Reasonator. The value of this property ought to be in Reasonator's external links box in the right-hand column. But how is eg Reasonator supposed to know that, if the property is string-valued rather than external-identifier valued?
If other properties have been given unhelpful types, the place to start changing that is here and now. So I stand firm for making this external-identifier valued, because it is an external identifier, and I believe it is helpful to external applications to mark it as such. We should remember that "consensus can change". If external identifiers haven't been given external-identifier type, that nonsense has gone on long enough, and we should end it.  :::Can you give a link to the earlier discussion on this? What were supposed to be the conclusive benefits of giving external identifiers a type other than external-identifier? Is any application in the wild relying on this distinction (as opposed to being degraded by it, like Reasonator) ? And if this is about reasonably consistent single-valuedness, why is that not more effectively indicated by the explicit constraint statements on the property? Jheald (talk) 19:29, 20 May 2018 (UTC)
It's just not the outcome of the discussion. Datatype alone isn't necessarily a good indicator for GUI construction. Currently this mixes social media accounts of a person with third party identifiers. Depending on the presentation, this can look bad. I asked our developers to look into some of the GUI issues at Wikidata. Obviously, interface things are always top priority for them ;)

When this new system is live we could just update the existing property. Abbe98 (talk) 09:35, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
Abbe98 (talkcontribslogs) please call me I feel your comments is very confusing +46-70-5937579 I cant understand your logic. The main reason to store the new identifier in a new field is that it is a new identifier and you will avoid problems with other solutions who use Property P906 so they don't break. Suggesting an one time conversion ==> that you need to coordinate that with other people using Property P906 something not needed if we create a new property.
My thought is: 1. Create an new property 2. Populate it.... 3. When other solutions like VIAF is also using the new ID upgrade scripts and when we know todays Property P906 is not used maybe delete it
  1. New system is planned to go live on monday 11 june
  2. E.g. todays Libris ID is used by VIAF and I guess they will have both the old and new ID...
    1. We have scripts used today getting eg. LIBRIS ID from VIAF that will be broken if you do an one time conversion and reuse the name for the new content without a lot of coordination
      1. I use User:Magnus_Manske/authority_control.js that finds matches at VIAF and e.g. populate P906 With what is stored in viaf.org/processed/SELIBR.... if we do an one time conversion scripts like this need to be changed at the same time and maybe we need to wait until VIAF is updated
- Salgo60 (talk) 21:03, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
To get a second opinion I asked a question at the LIBRIS support forum link what they recommend and if they know what e.g. VIAF will do - Salgo60 (talk) 10:37, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment From a Wikidata perspective, I don't think we should replace P906 with different identifiers. A property for an identifier can be created without a formatter url being available.

Motivation

The history of the database goes back over 100 years. It is now hosted by the German Entomological Institute (Q472839) (Senckenberg Deutsches Entomologisches Institut, Müncheberg). Some of the entries are sparse, but on the other hand the synergy with the biographies on Wikispecies appears to be high. There are 37,000 entries and over 6,000 portraits. The database invites "corrections and supplementary information", and so I think Wikidata could collaborate here. Altogether this would seem to be a valuable scientific identifier.

  • I'm worried about several issues:
    • This website abuses Javascript, making it impossible for most applications to use or check their content. I guess this will also make us very difficult to add the corresponding IDs to Wikidata by using tools like Mix'n'match. Are there some alternative, Linked Data friendly URIs?
    • This website seems to have several bugs or unfinished features. For example, I get no titles when filtering by artist.
    • Should these IDs be used for books, for editions or for exemplars (see Wikidata:WikiProject Books)? If for exemplars, even if for editions, this property may not be so useful.

Motivation

ArchINFORM has entries for more than 76.000 architectural projects. It havily uses content from Wikimedia projects and has links to Wikidata for many entries. It shouldn't be so hard to fetch the IDs of the entries already linked to Wikidata. That said I think especially those not yet here are of value for us: The database comprises many unbuilt projects (proposed building or structure (Q811683)) and modern buildings without heritage designation for which we don't have items yet. Unfortunately, small parts of the content is German-only. In 2016, a proposal for "archINFORM.net availability" as a boolean value has been closed as not done for lack of support. However, a property with external ID datatype wouldn't have no dependency on the Wikidata ID available at archINFORM and could help creating items based on archINFORM entries – a main purpose of this proposal. --Marsupium (talk) 15:23, 19 June 2018 (UTC)

  • I'm involved in the archINFORM database and suggested in 2016 the proposal for "archINFORM.net availability". Reason for the "unusal" kind of authority entry was the fact, that we maintain on our own at archINFORM a pretty huge (and actual) authority relation table with links to selected big authorities (Wikidata, GND, Getty, ...). With a "classic" proposal (like the actual one) data maintenance has to be done twice (at Wikidata and archINFORM), which is more error prone. Neverthereless there are reasons to do it this way and of course I will help to populate this authority entry, if it will be accepted. --Arch2all (talk) 09:01, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
    I thought about that. Of course it creates redundancy and more work when changing something. I'm not sure if it is more error prone tho. I see that having the data here can help
    1. spotting duplicates and clusters here and on archINFORM and improving both databases, namely using distinct values constraint (Q21502410) and single value constraint (Q19474404),
    2. finding new links between the two and
    3. creating new Wikidata items based on archINFORM entries with Mix'n'match.
    This isn't possible with a boolean availability property. Also we have the linking problem with such a property here – which could perhaps be solved. But it is worth thinking through both possibilities with the scenarios and deciding which bringst highest quality data for least work!
    Is the relation table somehow available (meaning without scraping all the 76k entry pages)? Thank you, --Marsupium (talk) 13:24, 20 June 2018 (UTC)
It's possible to create a relation table "wikidata <-> archINFORM project ID" in csv format. --Arch2all (talk) 09:24, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

Motivation

Or should it be called "Online Books Page copyright ID". An amazing resource that has the date for the first copyrighted issue for publications that filed for copyright renewals. I plan to eventually, with help of a bot programmer, extract the dates and import them into a new field. The field will use the original database as the reference. The new field with the date can be used to scan and flag Wikimedia Commons items for copyright conflict. Lets say that a scan of a New York Times article from 1950 is marked with {{PD-US-not renewed}}. A bot can compare the date of the article with the date of first renewal and flag it to be checked by a human. I will also ask the creator if he is interested in adding a Wikidata link to his pages, that way we can work on both end for completeness. RAN (talk) 01:17, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
