- Same here, I missed it, too. And I have encouraged the critique you raised at Wikidata talk:Wikiproject Fictional universes#use of "fictional" items there. --Marsupium (talk) 13:46, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
- Based on the description, manifestation of (P1557) is not limited to creative works (like 1074). d1g (talk) 09:47, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
- @Fractaler, D1gggg: No. This other property is based on the FRBR concept of "manifestation", which links for example a musical album to the CD object it was engraved on, or a musical album to one of its recording. It links a character of a play to one precise time an actor or an actress played this a specific day on a theater. It's very different from this property that links a character to the real person whom its supposed to represent - say "Abraham Lincoln" to the analog in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (Q587707). Maybe in this case we should however just use inspired by (P941) . 10:02, 11 January 2017 (UTC)
Only for classes?Edit
- I guess as mentioned above statements with based on (P144) fits in those cases. 17:12, 30 January 2018 (UTC)
- based on (P144) should be used for works used as a basis - at least according to the proposal and quite a few descriptions. The earth is not a work. I think inspired by (P941) is a good alternative.
- But actually I don't know why we should not use P1074 on instances. Sometimes a fictional entity represents some real entity by reference (name, etc). It should be possible to say that this entity is said to be that other entity. A fictional entity can be inspired by/based on some other entity without actually representing that other entity. And a fictional entity can represent another entity without actually being "based on" it (there may be only few similarities apart from the name). - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 08:20, 31 January 2018 (UTC)
- I went ahead and changed the property constraints and English description to allow individuals, too. Feel free to discuss and revert if there are any problems. - Valentina.Anitnelav (talk) 11:27, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
