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

Useful, because it gives information about the players strenght. We already store FIDE elo ratings for chess players, this is for european go players. --Wesalius (talk) 09:34, 23 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Comment: Might we be better off with a generic "rating" property, qualified with conferred by (P1027)? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:34, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
    • I guess so, thank you for the idea. If nobody comes up with a better idea in couple of days I will retract my proposal and use your solution. --Wesalius (talk) 18:18, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
  • At the moment, Elo rating (P1087) is used for chess players and for go players. I think it would be better if we would separate these issues (which is probably also the intention of this proposal). I think the easiest way is to create properties for each rating separately. So Property:P1087 would then only be used for FIDE ratings, and there would be additional properties for ICCF ratings, European Go ratings, and maybe some more ratings. Having only one rating property would probably make things unnecessary difficult and I think also chaotic. Also, conferred by (P1027) has as description "awards a prize to or bestows an honor", but a rating is neither prize nor honor, so this property would be unappropriate anyways.

place of baptism[edit]

   Under discussion
Description the place where a person is baptized
Data type Item
Domain people
Example MISSING
See also date of baptism in early childhood (P1636), place of birth (P19)
Motivation

In the current time it is common to register where someone has been born. In previous eras this was in large parts of the world not that common, as then people were first registered at there baptism in church. As not every town had a church, people had to travel to the nearest church. This means for Wikidata that adding the property place of birth (P19) is not right, as the place of birth had been different from the place of baptism.

In line with date of birth (P569) - place of birth (P19), and date of baptism in early childhood (P1636), a place of baptism is needed and hereby requested. Thank you. Romaine (talk) 20:19, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

When the dates and place are going to be used, this can't be done easily by just extracting the place of baptism directly. Also I think that such an important moment, like birth and death, also baptism was a major one, and serves as an alternative if the birth place was not known due the circumstances I described above. Romaine (talk) 23:51, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Motivation

The Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (Q2131030) has the most comprehensive and scientifically useful database of Ancient and Byzantine Greek literature, ranging from Homer to the end of the Byzantine period (1453). It is widely used in the scholarly community, mainly for those working at universities, because access to the database is restricted. For the whole of the TLG database, you need an (expensive) subscription; part of the Canon, the "TLG Abridged", is available for free but requires registration.

A formatter URL would be impractical because access to the TLG Canon is restricted (as described above). But it still technically is an external ID, not only a string.

Motivation

Hi. I explained what I want to do in Wikidata:Project_chat#how_to_tag_that_someone_has_worked_as_a_coach.2Fmanager_for_a_football_club.2Fteam. To describe coach career in Wikidata, there is no evident existing property (occupation (P106), member of sports team (P54) and employer (P108) each have their default). So Danrok (talkcontribslogs) invited me to ask the creation of a dedicated property. H4stings (talk) 09:07, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Up: I am still interested. Face-smile.svg I wait for the conclusion of this page to start my work. Either this new property creation is validated, and I will use it tens of thousands of times. Or it is not granted, in this case I think I will use the member of sports team (P54) property with has role (P2868):association football manager (Q628099) as qualifier.

Discussion
I don't see why the information has to be stored on the page of the manager. What's wrong with storing it at the club level? You can still write access the information via a query for an infobox. ChristianKl (talk) 19:31, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
@ChristianKl: there is no obligation, but it sounds simpler to me. Almost every manager is an old footballer, and we already store the player career data in the wikidata player element (with member of sports team (P54)). And in any Wikipedia page, both information (player and manager career data) appears in the infobox of the human being, not in the club one. --H4stings (talk) 07:59, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
When it comes to the term head coach it's not immediately clear that humans can't have head coaches like humans have teachers. This might be confusing for new users. If you want to model the side from the human than I think "hold position" already does the job. ChristianKl (talk) 08:06, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. I believe that using position held (P39) would be unnecessarily cumbersome as it would require one to use modifiers every single time to show which teams the individual has coached/managed. Furthermore, I have yet to see any explanation as to why P39 is good enough. Indeed, that property appears to be political in scope. Perhaps someone can give me some reasons for why I should use P39. If we have no problem using member of sports team (P54) to list the teams an individual has played for, why is there a problem with storing managerial information on the page of the manager? Many sportspeople are far more famous as a manager than as a player, and it would be good for us to be able to document the organizations that they represented in that role. In a nutshell, I think it would be very helpful for those of us who edit sports items if we had this property. Lepricavark (talk) 11:19, 23 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. Very few items about coaches use P39, it's ambiguous for most editors and you can't think of it while editing.

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. We have it in most Wikipedias, and if we put it in Wikidata we can automatically add to templates without using position held (P39), that would be good for presidents of sport teams, but not for a trainer, who can be in more that one team every year. The list of position held (P39) would be too long because most formats in Templates are using this for politicians, with different formatting. At the same time, one coach of any sport team could also be in a political charge during his life, and it would lead to misunderstood. -Theklan (talk) 22:57, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

      • @Lahi: If I am understanding Pigsonthewing correctly, they believe it should be possible to calculate the number of pole positions for, e.g. Michael Schumacher (Q9671) by counting the instances of items about F1 races where qualifying position 1 has the value Michael Schumacher (Q9671). This would require every qualifying position to be stored on the item about the race (or a separate item for the qualifying for that race) - I do not know whether this is currently done, or whether it would be doable? An alternative way of modelling this would be to have a "pole position" property, for use on items about motor races, which took the item about the driver as it's value. For example, 1996 French Grand Prix (Q221567)pole position  Michael Schumacher (Q9671). You would then be able to calculate the number of pole positions a driver had from this. However this comes with two caveats - (1) I do not know whether infoboxes can do this sort of calculations; and (2) the count will be wrong until the information about pole position has been added to every grand prix (and Indy 500, etc, etc). For this latter reason, I'm leaning support as a temporary property until data is complete. Thryduulf (talk) 21:08, 16 November 2016 (UTC)

    --- Jura 11:22, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
    • @Jura1: You mean something like
      < Queen consort > has quality (P1552) See with SQID < values in qualifier >
      spouse (P26) See with SQID < King >
      or something like that ? I think that's not a bad idea but that may not work all the time : I'm not really into noble titles and inheritance but stuffs like death of some spouse - say "Lady Diana" before the spouse become the king, remariage, and so on, could make a mess not really easy to model. This property is probably way simpler to model the relationship between the titles themselves. Not to mention the possibly esoteric and inconsistent rules of nobleship through the kingdom. That's safest to model this relation than to try to model and follow the rules, imho. author  TomT0m / talk page 11:36, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
      • To follow the sample you gave in the proposal, when using has quality (P1552) this would look more like:
        British consort (Q19946212) - has quality (P1552) - consort (Q5784340) - qualifier of (P642) - Monarch of England (Q18810062)
        I'd avoid "values in qualifier" as an item as it does tend to get messy. With an equivalent of relative (P1038) it would be:
        British consort (Q19946212) - "title for relative of" - Monarch of England (Q18810062) - qualifier type of kinship (P1039) - spouse (Q1196129)
        We could probably apply the 2nd solution to items for family relationships in general. Oddly, none of the items given in the sample seem to relate to specific titles .. Besides as titles differ by country and tend to evolve through time, you might end up doing lots of parallel statements.
        --- Jura 11:58, 11 November 2016 (UTC)
        • I don't really like the first one the first solution as it uses a general meaningless qualifier who tends to be used everywhere and is probably dispensable - to me this gets to be far more messier than the "values in qualifier" solution as it clearly means imho that we wil get a set of "property values pair". With "of", god knows what we will get. I really don't get the "has quality : consort" solution either as "consort" is by essence a relationship which is more naturally model by a relationship than by an item. That's why you have to use a qualifier to add the value of the pair (title/consort title) - this seems a petty attempt to spare a property that twists Wikibase data model to put a square into a circle. I'd expect "has quality" to point to something that is a property of the instances, something like or something like that. But we never properly tried to define "has quality" so this became somewhat of a mess which means everything and nothing (actually in my example the proper way to model that every disk (Q238231) View with Reasonator See with SQID is convex could be given that the item means "convex set" as "any set that have the convexity property", and that we don't have an item actually for "convexity property". "Has quality" could also be seen as a duplicate of properties for this type (P1963) See with SQID is some cases where we have an item corresponding to the property (for example we know that the fathership relationship father (P22) See with SQID has a corresponding wikidata item father (Q7565) View with Reasonator See with SQID by a statement subject item of this property (P1629) See with SQID - Does this mean that we could for example model any relationship in Wikidata by for example
          < Adam > has quality (P1552) See with SQID < father >
          of (P642) See with SQID < Abel >
           ? Then we would need no property at all except "has quality". So maybe "has quality" has to be restricted to apply on types. Then if we mean that  and
          < human (Q5) View with Reasonator See with SQID > has quality (P1552) See with SQID < father >
          , we get a triangle "class - relationship item - wikidata property" and one edge of this triangle is redundant. In the end, this property is a mess.

          The second proposition is way more interesting as things are way better defined here, including the qualifier who is already defined for similar case. It's clear that's the qualifier value has to be a relationship item and it's a good compromise if there could be a lot of relative titles. However I wonder if that would be necessary as I can't cite another title for relative than "prince" or "princess" ... Any idea ? author  TomT0m / talk page 13:11, 11 November 2016 (UTC)

  • It's probably better to see at least a dozen of samples. Generally, I noticed that some of the properties proposed by Tomtom remain unused and get potentially messy as users don't have any clear precedents to follow. As for the link to Adam and Lady Diana, it seems to be yet another digression.

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. Aren't people in captivity or imprisonment given serial numbers all over the world? For example, Jean Valjean (Q1156620) (prisoner in novel Les Misérables) → 24601,or Elie Wiesel (Q18391) (Holocaust survivor) → A-7713. Why not a more universal property, that could be qualified by the authority that is controlling them?--Pharos (talk) 18:53, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
