Persons[edit]

Identifiers[edit]

MSBI person ID[edit]

Description identifier of a person, in the Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland database
Data type External identifier
Domain person
Example Henry Moore (Q151097) -> msib2_1214407085
Formatter URL http://sculpture.gla.ac.uk/view/person.php?id=$1
Robot and gadget jobs The MSBI persons are a mix'n'match catalog.
Motivation

The Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland site, for short the Mapping Sculpture database, is a scholarly project on sculpture 1851 to 1951.[1]. There are over 6K person identifiers.

"The University of Glasgow, in partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum and Henry Moore Institute, launched the project in September 2007."[2] This is a major resource for British art. Charles Matthews (talk) 12:53, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

Discussion
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support But I believe the IDs should be prefixed, e.g. msib2_1214407085 rather than 2_1214407085. --Magnus Manske (talk) 12:58, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support but I'd prefer the label as "MSBI person ID" to make it clear it's an ID for a person not a sculpture. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 15:41, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
    • Fair point - was actually my intention to have it that way. Charles Matthews (talk) 17:32, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support A very useful database, which I have often used as a source on Wikipedia. Fixes suggested above applied, and description made more standard. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:37, 9 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - looks good. Andrew Gray (talk) 11:37, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

@Charles Matthews, Magnus Manske, Thryduulf, Pigsonthewing, Andrew Gray: ✓ Done Now MSBI person ID (P2914), can be matched to Mix'n'match. Lymantria (talk) 05:40, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

INSPIRE-HEP author ID[edit]

Description – (Please translate this into English.)
Data type External identifier
Domain person
Example Fabiola Gianotti (Q983183)Fabiola.Gianotti.1
Formatter URL https://inspirehep.net/author/profile/$1
Robot and gadget jobs Possibly Mix'n'Match. Also, some author profiles have other identifiers we could match, like ORCID (P496) and arXiv-ID (property missing).
Motivation

INSPIRE-HEP (Q5972440) is a major database for high energy physics, that includes author profiles identified by a BAI (Bib Author Identifier).

For most scientists working within the HEP field, the profile is connected to a HEPNames record that contain name variants and their professional history. But there are also author profiles not connected to HEPNames (example), that are not as well curated. So we should probably recommend linking mainly to HepNames-connected records. Danmichaelo (talk) 20:38, 14 June 2016 (UTC)

Discussion
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support - sounds like a useful id to have. However, aren't they using ORCID now at INSPIRE? ArthurPSmith (talk) 20:25, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
They support it, but at least at the moment there's lots of authors without one. Danmichaelo (talk) 11:33, 21 June 2016 (UTC)

Example Konstantin Rokossovsky (Q40482) warheroes.ru ID is 357
Source http://www.warheroes.ru
Formatter URL http://www.warheroes.ru/hero/hero.asp?Hero_id=$1
Robot and gadget jobs Relevant articles in Russian Wikipedia contain links to this site
Motivation

http://www.warheroes.ru contains article on Russian language about people awarded with w:en:Hero of the Soviet Union of w:en:Hero of the Socialist Labour titles. Should help to standardize such links location and creation. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 02:31, 19 June 2016 (UTC)

Catalogus Professorum Rostochensium ID[edit]

   Under discussion
Description identifier in the Catalogus Professorum Rostochensium database on professors of the Rostock University from 1419 to present
Represents Catalogus Professorum Rostochiensium (Q1050232)
Data type External identifier
Domain human (Q5)
Allowed values \d{8} - 8 digits, leading zeroes allowed

Source http://cpr.uni-rostock.de/nav?path=left.start
Formatter URL http://cpr.uni-rostock.de/metadata/cpr_person_$1
Robot and gadget jobs Import by de:Vorlage:CPR gives the wrong values, dewiki makes use of the possibility to reach the individual pages by Integrated Authority File (Q36578). A mix'n'match entry will be created by me after the property is active (or perhaps even before).
Motivation

Interesting and reliable information on the careers at Rostock University. Used quite a bit by dewiki. Seems a good addition to wikidata. Lymantria (talk) 16:25, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

title of chess player[edit]

   Under discussion
Description property for the title of chess players
Data type Item
Template parameter "title" in en:Template:infobox chess biography, "titel" in de:Vorlage:Infobox_Schachspieler, "titre" in fr:Modèle:Infobox_Joueur_d'échecs, "Cím" in hu:Sablon:Sakkozó infobox etc.
Domain human (Q5) (with occupation (P106) chess player (Q10873124)
Allowed values Grandmaster (Q105269), International Master (Q752119), FIDE Master (Q1049520), FIDE Master (Q1049520), National Master (NM), Candidate Master (CM), Woman Grandmaster (WGM), Woman International Master (WIM), Woman FIDE Master (WFM), Woman Candidate Master (WCM), International Correspondence Chess Grandmaster (Q3818700), Grandmaster of the Chess Compositions, International Solving Grandmaster, and the special national chess titles of the individual federations (see: en:Chess_title)
Example
Source en:Chess_title, FIDE Handbook
Proposed by --Dodi123 (talk) 14:23, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Motivation

Because the title (GM, IM, FM, WGM, WIM, WFM etc.) is NOT AN AWARD (award received (P166)) for the chess players. There are their TITLES. An award for a chess players is for example the Chess Oscar (Q752000) prize.

Discussion
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose award received seems fine. --Izno (talk) 15:00, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please read the wikidata page of Magnus Carlsen (Q106807). He has many awards: four Chess Oscar (Q752000), the Aftenposten Gold Medal (Q388826), Norwegian Sportsperson of the Year (Q1859368), the Peer Gynt Literary Award (Q1780561). These are really awards for him. The rank (title) of chess player is an other thing, there is same as dan/kyu rank (P468) for asian sports. If you read wikidata page of Hironori Ōtsuka (Q386415), he has awards: award received (P166) Order of the Rising Sun (Q818600) and he has dan/kyu rank (P468) 10 dan karate master. --Dodi123 (talk) 17:29, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A chess puzzle solver is not a chess player, so for solving grandmaster, this property would not be suitable. Same for chess puzzle composers. 85.216.91.92 17:58, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
"Just as in over-the-board play, in problem chess the titles International Grandmaster, International Master and FIDE Master are awarded by FIDE via the PCCC (Permanent Commission for Chess Composition) for especially distinguished problem and study composers and solvers" (see: en:Chess_title#Problem_chess). en:FIDE is the World CHESS Federation. --Dodi123 (talk) 18:11, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but then the property should be named title of chess person, not "player". A composer is not a player. 2A00:1398:9:FB00:F125:7AF5:8A19:8547 08:56, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support and actually I would suggest to broaden this property to honorific titles given to persons in general. --Srittau (talk) 23:21, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
