Property proposal waitingEdit

Hi Andy, Ive been involved in a property proposal which has been marked as ready for a good few weeks now but doesn't seem to be getting approved. Would you mind taking a look? perhaps there is something we haven't done correctly? or perhaps its just slipped under the radar? Any advice would be much appreciated. Cheers Jason.nlw (talk) 07:40, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

@Jason.nlw: Unfortunately, Category:Properties ready for creation has backlog (62 proposals, at the time of writing). I can only suggest you post at Wikidata:Administrators' noticeboard to ask for an admin or property-creator to act on it.

OK thanks Andy! Jason.nlw (talk) 12:17, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data - testing qualifiers for depictsEdit

As you might have seen, testing is underway for adding qualifiers to depicts statements. If you have not left feedback already, the Structured Data on Commons development team is very interested in hearing about your experience using qualifiers on the file page and in the UploadWizard. To get started you can visit Test-Commons and chose a random file to test out, or upload your own file to try out the UploadWizard. Questions, comments, and concerns can be left on the Structured data talk page and the team will address them as best as they can. Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:08, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Help Writing a Property PorposalEdit

Hi Andy, perhaps foolishly, as I have never done one before, I am trying to put together a property proposal for the State Library Collections - initially for unpublished material and then for published as they are managed differently in catalogues. I briefly talked to Pontoch who was very helpful about this. I understand everyone seems swamped with the amount of work but am wondering if you can give me some guidance on the statement structure - I have put together a draft below with comments on things I am not sure about? Thanks

@Eothan: Using the above info, I've drafted a proposal at User:Eothan/DRAFT: SLNSW unpublished item ID. Please tweak it and add a "motivation" (i.e. a short statement about why we should have the property). You can then copy the markup and post it here [1] (or I can do that for you). Some of the parameters are optional, and can be ignored. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 17:22, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing: Wonderstuff - thanks Andy - I will get on with the motivation statement. My shout next time you are over here. Cheers Geoff. Eothan (talk) 06:26, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
