  • @Belteshassar: I tried to create this property but an automatic check failed: example value "108000" does not match regular expression 1000-999000. Please fix your proposal and your property will be created shortly. This is an automated message but do not hesitate to ping me if you need any help. − Pintoch (talk) 15:08, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
