This is a fairly new social network which has got some traction recently. I'm not quite sure about the formatter URL. Ideally we could reuse the groups in the regex to translate "" to "", but it does not seem that this functionality is supported by formatter URL (P1630). − Pintoch (talk) 21:57, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I've heard of this. We should definitely get a formatter URL. ArthurPSmith (talk) 16:46, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
Given that the nature of the network is about being decentralized I'm not sure whether a formatter URL is useful. ChristianKl (talk) 18:59, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, I would say that the decentralized nature of the network makes URL (or rather a URI) all the more relevant. − Pintoch (talk) 23:00, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
somehow I wasn't quite paying attention - I can set up a formatter using the wikidata-externalid-url service if/when this property is created. ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:12, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

  • I would prefer if this property still has external-id as it's datatype even when we don't have a good formatter url. ChristianKl (talk) 12:04, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

    • Thanks - I updated the wikidata-externalid-url resolver to support this and entered the appropriate formatter URL - it works at least for the example case... ArthurPSmith (talk) 13:31, 6 June 2017 (UTC)
