Discussion
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This is a major astronomical database (speaking as an astronomer), it should definitely be available here as an identifier. Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 18:00, 9 August 2016 (UTC)

@Pigsonthewing, Mike Peel:✓ Done Now SIMBAD ID (P3083). I hope next time to find a proposal with domain and possibly regex included. --Lymantria (talk) 08:02, 13 August 2016 (UTC) P.S. The example doesn't seem to work properly. I think it has to do with + being translated into %2B. Annoying. Perhaps you can replace the exameple. Lymantria (talk) 08:04, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

Works for me. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:20, 13 August 2016 (UTC)
