Property for artists included in Eurohunter (talk) 15:15, 5 October 2019 (UTC)


  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, no information about the artists is provided. This seems to be part of an attempt to add as many external-ids claims as possible to Basshunter (Q383541) (possibly for search engine optimization benefits?), with no interest in reaching meaningful coverage for the properties created. See for instance Lyrics007 artist ID (P7206), artist ID (P7205) or artist ID (P7194) created weeks ago, with only 6, 6 and 10 uses each respectively. − Pintoch (talk) 11:07, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
    • @Pintoch: It may seems like that but remember it need time for property to get used in more items. I just added them to these items (all few (3-5) the same in majority cases). There are thousands of artsists ids and quite some properties missing. Can you imagine how much time it took to add all these properties? If I would like to add atleast 100 ids of each new property it would take days or weeks to complete them and finally I have no interest to add them to random artists which I don't care about.

      • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Eurohunter, could you at least slow it down a bit? I feel like you are cluttering the Property proposal up by having so many entries open at the same time. --Trade (talk) 00:03, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
      • @Eurohunter: sure! that's just my own impression about your activity. I do realize this is taking you a lot of time: in fact, this is also taking us a lot of time (to review and create all these properties). − Pintoch (talk) 09:12, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
        • @Trade: I don't have any new proposal on eye right now. Eurohunter (talk) 19:32, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
