"subclass of" or "instance of" "award"?Edit

The property documentation says that the value type of this property should be "subclass of" "award". Now almost all awards currently seem to use "instance of" "award" though, which I think is not actually wrong. After all an award like the Nobel Prize in Chemistry is a concrete object. Maybe one could argue there is an addional "layer" below with a subject receiving an "instance" of that award, that way you could argue for such awards being a "subclass of award". --Bthfan (talk) 06:53, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

See and for the two item lists of instance of/subclass of. --Bthfan (talk) 06:56, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
On top of that most of the awarded items are actually ceremonies and not awards. Like BRIT Awards is an item about the ceremony and should be a subclass of award ceremony. Should it also be a subclass of music award so that it can be awarded? Can it/should it be a subclass of both? RolandBeck (talk) 08:27, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I changed the relation in the constraint from "subclass" to "instance" as it is more natural to look at an award like the Nobel Prize in Chemistry as a concrete object with several receivers than a class. --Pasleim (talk) 14:28, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Standardizing statementsEdit

For the Nobel prizes, we generally have an item about each years award. Currently we have at least three different ways of stating that someone has been awarded one:

  1. One statement with one qualifier:
  2. One statement with two qualifiers:
  3. Two statements:

Could we try to agree on one standard? While 1 is a bit lacking, both 2 and 3 both seem like valid ways of describing the same information. In number 2, however, "point in time (P585) 2012" will be stated both in 2012 Nobel Peace Prize (Q4626364) itself and in the qualifier used with award received (P166). Thus, number 3 seems like the more elegant and fail prone solution to me. Danmichaelo (talk) 12:49, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

I think there has already been somewhere a discussion and that solution 2) was favored. In any case, this is what I would support, because this can be easily applied to all awards while 3) is awkward in many cases (it would require items like "1949 edition of teenywiny village entertainer prize, and seems hard to apply to awards that are not periodical, like military decorations). It is easier to use in clients without too much reprocessing. Actually, the fact that the date given in the awardee item seems like a good thing. For example, {{Timeline|Q43179}} mentions that she got the Indira Gandhi Prize, but not the Nobel prize, because the template does not get fetch dates from linked items (and enabling that wihout creating a lot of nonsense may actually be rather tricky).

  • I believe first AND second variants are both good. The difference between 1 and 2 is additional optional qualifier. Third variant is not good because it would be very hard to select entities for all years. Also third variant (as said before) implies creation of award-by-year entries. -- Vlsergey (talk) 16:08, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Vlsergey. Option 1 with option 2 as an enhancement where additional info is available. Filceolaire (talk) 19:18, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
I prefer the first variant, since it's succinct (only 1 qualifier), gives both the specific award and the date, and doesn't require creating a new item for each year's awards. Such items are already created for the Nobles, thanks to Wikipedia, but they would be overkill for most other awards, and it would be nice to treat different awards consistently. Ghouston (talk) 21:26, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

Pop up of qualifier NOT "point in time" in initial listEdit

Can someone please explain to me the qualifier pop-ups. Usually the pop-ups when a qualifier is added are those expected to be added, yet for me the "point in time" (a mandatory component) isn't in the initial presented list, it only appears when halfway into the word. Is there a means to have the mandatory qualifiers appear first?  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:25, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

Revocation dateEdit

Would there be any way to notice the revocation date of an award? Let's say some person received a medal from an institution and some years later that same institution considers them unfittable for whatsoever reason... --Toniher (talk) 16:47, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

@Toniher: start and end time qualifiers define events in past
we can adjust constraints. d1g (talk) 19:03, 1 August 2017 (UTC)

Awards awarded for a previous periodEdit

Sometimes, an award is awarded for a previous period of time, like an awarded given in March 2016 for the best movie of 2015. How should we deal with that ? I have created Wikidata:Property proposal/Awarded for period. --Zolo (talk) 07:49, 2 August 2017 (UTC)

add 'field of work' and 'for work' as allowed qualifiers?Edit

I've been working on the WD item for this year's most prominent winner of the Ig Nobel prize - and therefore using this property. I've come across two constraint violations in the process which I think shouldn't be violations field of work (P101) and for work (P1686).
My example case: Q40728819#P166. The two qualifiers, in this example, are field of work (P101) -> physics (Q413) and for work (P1686) -> On the rheology of cats (Q43085371).
Could these two be added to the list of allowed qualifiers, or someone suggest an alternative? Thanks, Wittylama (talk) 16:33, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

quantity not allowed as qualifier for awards receivedEdit

The wikibase gives an error when a statement of award received (P166) is combined with quantity (P1114). Example: Parkheuvel (Q1814421)

award received (P166) Michelin star (Q20824563)
quantity (P1114): 1
start time (P580): 1990

With the Michelin star (Q20824563) prizes the number of stars is important. There are two ways to solve this:

  1. quantity (P1114) is accepted as qualifier for award received (P166), then the items can stay the same.
  2. For the Michelin star (Q20824563) prizes, for 1 star, 2 stars, and 3 stars each a separate items is created and used instead of Michelin star (Q20824563).

Or maybe another solution? Romaine (talk) 10:54, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

I would say to create separate items for each star category as a subclass. --Hannolans (talk) 15:51, 30 March 2018 (UTC)

point in time (P585) should not be mandatoryEdit

Very often, there are sources which state that someone has received an award (for example a military decoration), but do not mention the date. So this qualifier should not be considered as mandatory. BrightRaven (talk) 12:36, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

  • If you don't haven't, just skip it. Someone else may eventually complete it. For people born with the award, maybe DOB could be used.
    --- Jura 12:45, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
    Having it mandatory generates constraint violations. Constraint violations should be for signalling data inconsistencies, not missing/unavailable information information. In some case, getting to know the date when the award was given is original research. BrightRaven (talk) 07:21, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

I have delete this. Becausse there are often awards, that are given for a special time. So for example Q31777238 or Q1632037. They need P580 and P582, not P585. Marcus Cyron (talk) 12:29, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

There should be a possibility to require certain constraints only for specific statements. So e.g. Q31777238 should require P580, but e.g. Officer's Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany (Q10905334) should require P585. But I guess this is (currently) not possible?! Steak (talk) 20:01, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
I'm glad it's gone, because awards with start and end times like on Tommy Morrison (Q467409) no longer need a duplicate "point in time" qualifier. Ghouston (talk) 03:59, 7 August 2018 (UTC)

serial number (P2598) as valid qualifierEdit

Please allow serial number (P2598) as valid qualifier. At least it make sense for Soviet orders. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 18:02, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

@EugeneZelenko: Done. Manu1400 (talk) 22:34, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

A case with doctor honoris causa (Q11415564)Edit

@Paju~wikidatawiki: There is a case with doctor honoris causa (Q11415564) here [1]. award received (P166) is used with organizations in the main statement and doctor honoris causa (Q11415564) as a qualifier. This seems not right to me. I think that doctor honoris causa (Q11415564) should be the main statement, or we should subclass doctor honoris causa (Q11415564) for the individual institutions. — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:07, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

I see the approach I argued for is used in, e.g., Günter Grass (Q6538). — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 16:21, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
Honorary doctorates are a bit of a mess, actually there are several ways they are done. There are items like honorary doctor of Harvard University (Q39384825) and also Doctor of Science (honorary) (Q17403163). I like Doctor of Science (honorary) (Q17403163) because it can be used like on Mathew Alpern (Q20704249) to declare both the type of doctorate and the conferring institution, but it isn't used much, and items don't exist for all possible doctorates. Ghouston (talk) 19:49, 16 October 2018 (UTC)
There's another discussion at Wikidata:Project chat/Archive/2019/11#Forgotten how to show a degree is "honorary/honoris causa", but still not really conclusive. Ghouston (talk) 01:08, 24 May 2020 (UTC)

nominated by (P4353) can be a qualifier, but it generates constraint violationEdit

nominated by (P4353) can be a qualifier, but it generates constraint violation. Trilotat (talk) 20:52, 22 August 2019 (UTC)

Any update on this, nominated by (P4353) seems like a valid qualifier for award received (P166)? Many thanks, JerryL2017 (talk)
It's not really valid as present, because nominated by (P4353) is for "who nominated a person for an office". However, it seems to me like a reasonable extension. I asked at Property talk:P4353, and I'd say if there are no objections there, we should do it. Ghouston (talk) 22:47, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
There were no objections at Property talk:P4353, so I changed the English label on that property and added it to the constraint check on this property. Ghouston (talk) 12:14, 16 November 2019 (UTC)

Add as a qualifier P937 "work location"Edit

The Nobel prize people are redesigning its API and sadly also stop update the SPARQLend point (T200668). For Olga Tokarczuk (Q254032) they have JSON file 980 that contains current residence location that I think we also should have as a qualifier work location (P937) - Salgo60 (talk) 16:11, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

has cause (P828) added as a qualifierEdit

Because an award ceremony or Birthday/New Year Honours will always cause an award to be awarded. ミラP 15:07, 24 June 2020 (UTC)

On second thought, I'm inclined to remove it because it's redundant to statement is subject of (P805). Thoughts? ミラP 18:30, 4 November 2020 (UTC)

Award declinedEdit

Is there any good way to indicate that someone declined or turned down or refused an award?

For example: I was looking at David Bowie (Q5383) and it currently says that he was awarded a "Commander of the Order of the British Empire" and "Order of the British Empire", when in fact he declined those awards per w:en:David Bowie#Awards and recognition and w:en:List of people who have declined a British honour.

The closest I can see is reason for deprecation (P2241), but I'm not sure if that is appropriate.

Additionally, I think one of the end-goals would be to remove those awards from displaying at external locations such as and I'm not sure if P2241 would have that effect?

Thanks for any insights. Quiddity (talk) 19:03, 28 July 2020 (UTC)

Documentation neededEdit

Hoi, I seriously object to the "need" for references with awards. I have put into place many of the awards and its awardees and I have included placeholders where no person was yet known to link the award to. I have used petscan to include awards to items. This is a best wiki effort. The new "requirement" is used as an excuse for deleting items. This has to stop because it undermines the integrity of lists of all the award winners for an award. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 05:23, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Item requires P31 statementEdit

Manu1400, you added the item requires statement constraint (Q21503247) with instance of (P31). However, currently there are around 60 valid uses, where item is for a class that don't require P31 statement. Probably many more similar uses are possible. So instead of listing that many uses as exceptions, I think it's better to drop this constraint. 2001:7D0:81F7:B580:61F6:DF4B:8E29:27F4 08:06, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

Announcement dateEdit

I added announcement date (P6949) as a permitted qualifier, to do something with the Nebula Awards, e.g., on Sarah Pinsker (Q28870552) for the award she received in 2020. The award is officially the "2019 Nebula Award for Best Novel", but it was announced and awarded in 2020. See also Wikidata:Project_chat#Literary_award_dates.
