Probably different from subscriber (Q28008243)? --Succu (talk) 21:05, 26 July 2019 (UTC)
Sure. It rather deals with subscription (Q322948). Nomen ad hoc (talk) 10:55, 28 July 2019 (UTC).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Well-defined and potentially useful to create sociological networks around a publication. Alexander Doria (talk) 19:26, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support StudiesWorld (talk) 15:37, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Is the proposed label in English a mistranslation? I don't understand what it would mean for a book (or synagogue, as in one of the examples) to have "subscribers". --Yair rand (talk) 20:26, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Subscriber lists (ie pre-publication funders/purchasers) for 19th century literary works often had more than 1000 names on them. Are we really proposing to systematically add that data here? If not, is only a tiny fraction of the subscriber list worth adding? Jheald (talk) 21:56, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I think sponsor (P859) has a sufficiently close meaning to this that it could be used for this purpose, no? Or were subscribers intending to get a return on their investment? In which case investor (P1951) seems appropriate instead. ArthurPSmith (talk) 17:26, 30 July 2019 (UTC)
    Ah, indeed; I didn't know this property, but it seems that it would apply (with some more aliases). Alexander Doria and StudiesWorld, who supported the proposal: any opinion? Nomen ad hoc (talk) 09:30, 31 July 2019 (UTC).
    Anyway I marked it as withdrawn; thanks for signaling this property. I'll add an example of subscriber there. Nomen ad hoc (talk) 06:43, 1 August 2019 (UTC).
