Image searchEdit

Images can be added with Magnus' Free Image Search Tool.

Try one of the following queries for items without place name sign (P1766) in the tool: examples with Brazil (Q155)

Items related to Brazil
CLAIM[17:155] and noclaim[1766]
Places in Brazil
TREE[155][150][17,131] and noclaim[1766]

Note:

  • Uncheck "Only items without image (P18)" and then click "Run".
  • [wait] The tool takes some time to run in two steps:
    • 1. Loading wikidata items and image candidates
    • 2. Loading Wikidata titles.
  • Images are selected by placing the mouse pointer on an image and selecting "Add as". When the menu appears, select "Add as place name sign".
  • Before adding the first image, one needs to log into "Widar".

Stations?Edit

Why is this property used for images of stations depicting the name of the station? Property should be used for road signs according to the description. Another property for station sign images may be proposed. Michiel1972 (talk) 14:58, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

I think it would fit as a "place name sign" or a sign with the name of the place on it. --- Jura 07:57, 27 April 2015 (UTC)

Non-place itemsEdit

As seen in the constraint violations, this property is often used on non-place items, such as for images of street signs named after the (human) subject. This usage contradicts the "represents" and "domain" documentation. Does it make sense to expand the documentation? Or what? Mrwojo (talk) 13:27, 8 October 2015 (UTC)

I've often seen it used this way, and I myself use it this way using WD-Fist.
A lot of pictures displaying places named after people are used on articles about those persons. If it is not possible to use this property, what property should be used ?
If this property should not be used this way, it would be important to make it explicit.
I do not really see a problem in using this property : it is, in fact, a "place name sign", of a place named after the person... :/ --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:59, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Signs displaying the name of a place where they are not situatedEdit

Can we use this property for signs displaying the name of a place where they are not situated? For example, should File:Saint-François.jpg be stored through this property on Q3462182? In other words, is it OK to document this property with direction signs? Thierry Caro (talk) 02:19, 11 April 2016 (UTC)

I have the same question. @Thierry Caro:. Xaris333 (talk) 02:20, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

  • Going through its uses, these seems fairly rare. Q4239567#P1766, Q4373627#P1766 has such signs. Personally, I don't see much of an issue, as long as it's about the same place. Variations can be interesting.

What about room names?Edit

Could for example these two images of museum room names added as values?

  1.   for a room in the Rockefeller Museum, Jerusalem
  2.   for Alte Pinakothek, upper floor, gallery IIa (Q29865827)

Thanks in advance for any response! --Marsupium (talk) 15:25, 6 October 2018 (UTC)
