PersonalData.IO (Q59695802) initiated the Wikidata:WikiProject_PersonalData, focused on understanding the economic ecosystem around personal data. Not everything was appropriate to store on Wikidata, so we spun off our own instance of Wikibase at The idea of this property is now to join what it makes sense to join, such as entities of type:

The list of relevant data types is relatively open ended, which is why we didn't really specify it in this proposal. Note that not all entities hosted on will be appropriate for Wikidata.

We expect to be the converse to the property listed here.

  • I think Q should be part of ID.--GZWDer (talk) 18:06, 26 December 2019 (UTC)
    • I was on the fence myself. That would match what was eventually done for Wikibase Registry ID (P6307) (even if its original proposal was done without the Q). Happy to do the ID with the Q, but I am wary of now changing what has been proposed, and unsure what the procedure is in such cases. (Note also that this would unfortunately hit into a bug of QuickStatements' heuristics at recognizing item IDs as Wikidata's) Pdehaye (talk) 23:29, 27 December 2019 (UTC)
      • I agree with GZWDer. It's fine to adjust a proposition during the procedure, it's even the goal of this discussion. The complete value of a PersonalData.IO ID is with Q, so it should be included in the values of this property. The format of a value shouldn't depend of an external tool, especially in the case of a bug in this tool.— Envlh (talk) 19:19, 31 December 2019 (UTC)
