Country property[edit]

So far, while there are a few items that do use Property:P17, most road items do not. I am proposing that we change this, to make it easier to design infoboxes, and to conform to the standard used by more geographical items. Thoughts? --Rschen7754 17:14, 26 December 2013 (UTC)

I can run autolist to add the property, so don't worry about the work involved. --Rschen7754 17:15, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
Seems fine to me (seeing that we don't have to manually add it to all 10000+ items). TCN7JM 17:21, 26 December 2013 (UTC)
I have no objection, although I wonder if we really need to do it since in most cases this data should already be associated with a road because of the system parameter. —Scott5114 [EXACT CHANGE ONLY] 08:06, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Well, there are international routes, and routes without a system, and at some point the system has to be tagged with the country too... --Rschen7754 08:07, 2 January 2014 (UTC)
Doesn't hurt, only helps (me). -happy5214 08:08, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

Now adding to the properties list, will add to the templates shortly. --Rschen7754 18:17, 15 January 2014 (UTC)

route number property proposal[edit]

I have proposed a property "route number" to be used on road articles, which would be the road number (Q3241753) that the road (or a section of the road) is part of, or in some cases, equivilent to.

Wikidata:Roads task force -> Wikidata:WikiProject Roads[edit]

Please. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 00:24, 8 August 2014 (UTC)

But then you will need to have all the other task forces renamed... --Rschen7754 03:22, 8 August 2014 (UTC)
Easy or hard, it could be done, as the last WikiProject still with old name. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 10:37, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Of course it could be done, but is it worth it? --Rschen7754 13:15, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
Seems ✓ Done by GZWDer. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 14:54, 24 October 2014 (UTC)


Can we please get the headers on all of the subpages translated to English? We already have a framework to translate pages, and we could create translations in many additional languages (a German translation of the Macedonia subpage, anyone?) if we can get the headers in English and the pages marked for translation. The item names will also appear in the user's chosen language once the lists are converted to roadtable. -happy5214 11:18, 2 December 2014 (UTC)


New template for us to use. --Rschen7754 20:35, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
