TV Tropes (Q2537428) is a database of cultural works (movies, TV shows, manga, books, video games, media franchises) and associated trope (Q843227) and other narratrive concepts.

Do we want one property, or one per concept? I see three possibilities:

One property
  • TVTropes ID
Two properties
  • TVTropes trope ID (/Main/)
  • TVTropes person ID (/Creator/)
  • TVTropes work ID (/[Manga|Series|Film|Franchise|VideoGame|Literature|/<id>])
Several properties
  • TVTropes trope ID
  • TVTropes person ID
  • TVTropes TV show ID
  • TVTropes manga ID
  • TVTropes film ID
  • TVTropes video game ID
  • TVTropes book ID
  • TVTropes franchise ID

  • I support the inclusion of TV Tropes. I'm however not quite sure about the best way to do it, as well, as their URL structure is a bit chaotic. Creating separate properties for each distinct category on the site could IMO result in too many properties, since in addition to the ones you mention, there's also categories/"namespaces" like /advertising, /comicbook, /ComicStrip, /Roleplay, /Ride, /WebAnimation, /WesternAnimation, /Myth and even /Disney (see here for a list). And when an animated film like Pinocchio (Q4341553) for example isn't located in the same namespace as other animated films, but under Disney/Pinocchio, the site doesn't make it easy to create well-definied separate properties. I like your second option - separate properties for tropes (/Main), persons/companies (/Creator) and works (/*). But unfortunately, it seems among those work namespaces, not all contain just works. /Music for example seems to also contain singers and bands (see here), meaning persons aren't all contained in the /Creator namespace. There's also the /UsefulNotes category, which contains people, places, events and much more, along with works they appear in. Those could also be interesting to include, but don't fit into one of those three categories. A single property might be more unwieldy, but has the advantage that we don't have to care about all the intricacies of what kind of entries are contained in each namespace and that entries for persons are spread across various namespaces. --Kam Solusar (talk) 21:39, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support with a single global id property. No need to bother with splitting away the namespaces (because that's really what they are), especially as we won't need to have a wiki id the way we do for Fandom and Gamepedia articles. Circeus (talk) 19:22, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
