  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment fixed the datatype from "number" (non-existent) to "quantity". --- Jura 07:44, 16 February 2020 (UTC)
  • Pretty sure we already have a more generic property that would work for this. If there isn't one, there should be. --Yair rand (talk) 17:40, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
@Yair rand: it seems non-neutral to state if something is a democracy or not rather than saying that one rating considers it one. To specify that a certain rating says that would be better to make sure we don't break neutrality rules. DemonDays64 | Talk to me 22:01, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
@DemonDays64: I agree completely, and I think that a property that indicates that something has a score of X on the Y index/system/assessment would be fine. --Yair rand (talk) 22:21, 17 February 2020 (UTC)
