Motivation[edit]

There are hundreds of Bulgarian caves in Wikidata that with reference URL (P854) to an ID-specific url of a defunct Bulgarian website; see this Wikidata query result: https://w.wiki/8yb. Since reference URL (P854) is not supposed to be used in this way: "The property reference URL should not be used in this location (as main value). The only valid location for this property is as references." This property would allow for the information to be properly retained. Imnasnainaec (talk) 17:53, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

It should be easy to write a bot to convert all these references to this new ID, but that is beyond my current access/ability. Imnasnainaec (talk) 17:56, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
