Hmm, this is for some compounds still a disputed property .. --Beetstra (talk) 13:05, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
There is always one IUAPC and most of the time you can put more than one. And as IUAPC is going to publish some rules to select the preferred name when several possibilities exist (see here, we can define one name for that property. Snipre (talk) 12:49, 26 June 2013 (UTC)
I have noticed French language using alternative characters with accents for the names, which does not quite match use in English. So is the non accented use correct? Graeme Bartlett (talk) 08:15, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
In French non accented names are not correct. That's why a multilingual property is proposed: each language will have its own name, so the value of this property will be a list of chemical names associated with a language. Snipre (talk) 08:32, 29 June 2013 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support, though the domain should probably be refined to "chemical compounds". Otherwise perhaps I'll finally get to see the IUPAC name for titin! It would also help to have an example, if only for documentation. Proposing a canonical source for IUPAC name claims would be helpful, too. Emw (talk) 12:14, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Proposed byPaperoastro (talk)
Discussion

Epoch is the seventh parameter of an orbit: it is necessary to define an orbit. In this proposal I'd like to discuss:

  1. we need a new property (this) or we can use point in time (P585)?
  2. epoch refers to 6 orbital parameters: how to join them?
  3. for spaceflights and artificial satellites the epoch is expressed in usual calendar unity; for extrasolar planet in Julian day or some its variants. How to solve it?

Paperoastro (talk) 12:32, 25 October 2013 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It might be useful to have a specific property because it can be further developed to have customisations and different representations (J2000, TT, etc.). As for bundling orbit parameters, one possible solution is to have an item to represent the orbit and link it with a property "orbit parameters". --Micru (talk) 20:37, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I am not an astronomer and having read the en:Epoch (astronomy) article I am still confused.
On the one hand epoch refers in some way to unusual ways for expressing calendar dates - for these we could use the current wikidata time variable type and ask the devs to offer alternative ways of displaying this at some future date
on the other hand it seems to refer to unusual units of time (Julian years and Julian days) - for these we can use seconds until the devs get round to creating alternative units of time
on the third hand it refers to IAU standards - we can create items for these

I have amended the example as I understand it should be used. Please check I got it right.
Can this property be extended so it can be used on solar eclipses as well? Creating a property that can only be used on lunar eclipses seems a bit narrow. Filceolaire (talk) 00:10, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I believe this is correct (see en:Solar eclipse of August 11, 1999#Notable times and coordinates for example. I will ask someone more knowledgeable to comment here. MSGJ (talk) 09:52, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
P1-4 and U1-4 apply to solar and lunar eclipses, but differently. A solar eclipse is a en:Transit (astronomy) so the timing is based on the viewing location INSIDE a shadow, while a lunar eclipse has viewers looking at an object INSIDE a shadow, so everyone sees the same appearance at the same universal time. So knowing the P1-4,U1-4 times for a solar eclipse are less useful for any given observer. Tomruen (talk) 01:08, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
If U4 for a solar eclipse is different from U4 for a lunar eclipse then we should have separate items for these with the "applies to part" qualifier linking to the appropriate item in each case. This means this property could be used for solar eclipses if we just change the label. I would Symbol support vote.svg Support this property if you made this change to the property label and description. Filceolaire (talk) 03:04, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Could you explain what you mean by "This means this property could be used for solar eclipses if we just change the label." Does that mean that properties can have more than one label? Or do you mean that you could have two statements for "subject item of this property"? Or do you mean something else? MSGJ (talk) 12:24, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
Rename the property as "Contact time for eclipses". Change the description to "Contact time for lunar and solar eclipses (U1, U2 etc. lunar and U1, U2 etc. solar)". Filceolaire (talk) 16:41, 30 April 2015 (UTC)
