Proposed by--Dodi123 (talk) 14:23, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Because the title (GM, IM, FM, WGM, WIM, WFM etc.) is NOT AN AWARD (award received (P166)) for the chess players. There are their TITLES. An award for a chess players is for example the Chess Oscar (Q752000) prize.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Please read the wikidata page of Magnus Carlsen (Q106807). He has many awards: four Chess Oscar (Q752000), the Aftenposten Gold Medal (Q388826), Norwegian Sportsperson of the Year (Q1859368), the Peer Gynt Literary Award (Q1780561). These are really awards for him. The rank (title) of chess player is an other thing, there is same as dan/kyu rank (P468) for asian sports. If you read wikidata page of Hironori Ōtsuka (Q386415), he has awards: award received (P166) Order of the Rising Sun (Q818600) and he has dan/kyu rank (P468) 10 dan karate master. --Dodi123 (talk) 17:29, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info A chess puzzle solver is not a chess player, so for solving grandmaster, this property would not be suitable. Same for chess puzzle composers. 17:58, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
    • "Just as in over-the-board play, in problem chess the titles International Grandmaster, International Master and FIDE Master are awarded by FIDE via the PCCC (Permanent Commission for Chess Composition) for especially distinguished problem and study composers and solvers" (see: en:Chess_title#Problem_chess). en:FIDE is the World CHESS Federation. --Dodi123 (talk) 18:11, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting info.svg Info There was a short discussion at Wikidata:Forum#Vandalismus preceeding this property proposal (mostly in English). Property proposal was one of the three discussed solutions, and to me it appears to be the best option based on what Dodi123 told about chess player titles. It might be worth to broaden the scope of this proposed property to all board games which have grandmaster titles (I'm not an expert in this field, so no idea whether this would be important). —MisterSynergy (talk) 18:06, 23 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support, ergo would suggest creating a bigger property - sports title. For example, a lot of Soviet sportsmen need it. Yelena Donskaya (Q23695237) -> Merited Master of Sports of the USSR (Q9387384). --Lingveno (talk) 04:44, 24 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment for some other activities, there is dan/kyu rank (P468).

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support and actually I would suggest to broaden this property to honorific titles given to persons in general. --Srittau (talk) 23:21, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Use award received (P166). Per en:Grandmaster (chess), "The title Grandmaster is awarded to chess players" (emphasis added). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:10, 29 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Dodi123 is correct: It's a title, not an award. Grandmasters, International Masters etc. are commonly referred to as "titled players" in chess. Stefan64 (talk) 22:26, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Perfectly correct: "The title Grandmaster is awarded to chess players" (emphasis added). --Toni am See (talk) 05:18, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
    • The fact that a tile, and not, say, a medal or a vase, is awarded, is irrelevant, and objection on such grounds is hair-splitting. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:37, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
      • You're talking nonsense. A PhD is also awarded, but that does not make it an award. Stefan64 (talk) 13:05, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
        • Actually, it is: "A Doctor of Philosophy (PhD or DPhil) is a type of doctorate degree awarded by universities in many countries." Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 19:20, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
          • Try to move en:Doctor (title) to en:Doctor (award) with this crappy reasoning. You will be blocked in no time. Stefan64 (talk) 20:40, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
            • Could you please cut out the aggressive, borderline abusive, language? The article to which you refer includes links to List of doctoral degrees awarded by country, and includes the word "award", "awardee", "awards" & "awarded", no less than twenty times. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:00, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
              • You are quite obviously clueless on the subject in question, several people have told you so. It's time to accept that. Stefan64 (talk) 21:42, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
                • "Could you please cut out the aggressive, borderline abusive, language?" I did not mean simply by dropping "borderline". Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:21, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
                  • I'm calling a spade a spade. You don't understand the difference between a title and an award, and keep insisting after it has been explaned to you repeatedly. Maybe you think that you are a very important guy here, because you've had some wiki jobs and Jimbo has heard your name before. No chance to impress me with that. Stefan64 (talk) 11:54, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support It is indeed a title for life, not an award. --Gereon K. (talk) 13:20, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support The official regulations are the FIDE Title regulations. In this regulations, the term "Award" ist not used at all. Especially relevant is §0.1: "Only the titles as in 0.3 are acknowledged by FIDE." 08:12, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
    • Not so. Note the subheading of section 0.6, which is "The Award of Titles". The preceding section says "such titles are awarded automatically by FIDE." The word is used, in one form or another, at least 11 times. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:25, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
      • the use of award as a verb does not imply that the object of the verb is always an award as a noun. Please at least acknowledge that two different parts of speech are involved here. ArthurPSmith (talk) 14:57, 6 July 2016 (UTC)
        • Correct. One can award nobel prizes, medals, or titles. An in this case, it's the letter one - titles. 19:02, 6 July 2016 (UTC)

@Dodi123, Lingveno, Srittau, Stefan64, Toni am See, Gereon K.: ✓ Done Clear majority support. Now property title of chess player (P2962). Lymantria (talk) 15:26, 12 July 2016 (UTC)

This is no supposed to be a vote. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:34, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
