Baptism part of birth or death (or related to DOB)Edit

Is baptism part of birth or death [1] as User:Jura1 suggests? Frank Robertson (talk) 14:51, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Here is the better diff: diff.--- Jura 14:55, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
You choose to not answer the question? Frank Robertson (talk) 15:06, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
With "description" (in your diff), I meant the text added in the second diff. It also appears under the property label and explains the relation. --- Jura 15:08, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
For my understanding all three are different events, none a subclass of another. That is why I posted my question. Could you answer this yes/no-question? Frank Robertson (talk) 15:10, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Yes: it's related to birth. The explanation is given in my diff. --- Jura 15:27, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Can you say what kind of relation you see between birth and baptism? In the diff it says "For times when only baptism records were available, this can be a good substitute for date of birth.". Can you explain what constitutes a "good substitute" in your opinion? Frank Robertson (talk) 20:16, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

I contest "For times when only baptism records were available, this can be a good substitute for date of birth." and will remove it. Frank Robertson (talk) 20:30, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

This is also mentioned by @Gymel: at Wikidata:Properties_for_deletion#date_of_baptism_.28P1636.29 (example: Ludwig van Beethoven). Thus I restore the note. --- Jura 05:03, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
I agree with "For times...", but I oppose baptism being part of or property for birth or death. Petr Matas 18:10, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Occasionally baptism is connected with birth or death, like emergency baptism (Q1431591), but it is not part of birth or death at all.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 16:04, 7 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't think anybody thinks it's part of birth or death. It's just related DOB and can provide a good substitute if no DOB is available. --- Jura 16:17, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

Usual in hours and minutes or days and months?Edit

If it's generally specified as hours and minutes, I'd call it "time of baptism".

If it's specified in days and months, I'd use "date of baptism". --- Jura 14:55, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Time is the general concept and allows for specification of different precision. Frank Robertson (talk) 15:04, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Yeah .. right. As the precious is "date" and given that is the agreed label, I restored the last version before your back and forth. --- Jura 20:54, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
"Data type: Time" and "Allowed values: Dates (possibly times)". Frank Robertson (talk) 21:35, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
time can't be entered. --- Jura 05:46, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Why couldn't we specify time, if it's known? Creating a separate property for it would be crazy. Petr Matas 18:54, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Have you tried it? --- Jura 19:23, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Label removalEdit

User:Jura1 removed several labels [2], I reverted this. The user should stop edit warring. Frank Robertson (talk) 21:09, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Frank Robertson reverted without any explanation. --Succu (talk) 21:12, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
That is true, since addition of labels normally does not need explanation. Now User:Succu removed the labels again [3] claiming "better". Frank Robertson (talk) 21:33, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
And your rational is? --Succu (talk) 21:36, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
That it is better to have 1) labels that describe possible values and 2) translations. Frank Robertson (talk) 21:38, 14 December 2014 (UTC)
Do they? --Succu (talk) 22:01, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

Removal of Wikidata property to indicate timeEdit

User:Succu removed "Wikidata property to indicate time" [4] - could there be an explanation? Frank Robertson (talk) 21:42, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

What's yours? --Succu (talk) 22:01, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

"In childhood"Edit

The property descriptions in different languages seem to disagree on the whether this property is for childhood baptisms only. Which one is correct? Deryck Chan (talk) 10:25, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

"in childhood" was added after a deletion debate. --- Jura 10:50, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Place of baptismEdit

The qualifier location (P276) can be used to indicate the place of baptism. See the discussion at Wikidata:Property_proposal/place_of_baptism.
