Support but I'm not sure about the data type. In general those values have measurement uncertainties, so Quantity might be better. Why restrict this to the sun? Apoapsis would be more general. Same for periapsis. --mfb (talk) 13:14, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

### ACM Classification Code (2012)

Description ACM Computing Classification Code of 2012 (8 digits) ACM Computing Classification System (Q288530) String ACM Code (2012) any computer vulnerability (Q631425) -> 10002997 , malware (Q14001) -> 10002997 The URL can be validated with a pattern RDF/XML and HTML version http://dl.acm.org/buildccscode.cfm?id=$1&lid=f A gadget ACM2Wikipedia will propose the ACM's categories with their label in function of text in the page Wikipedia. The user can select one label and save this url in Wikidata. Motivation The 2012 ACM Computing Classification System can be utilized in semantic web applications. It relies on a semantic vocabulary as the single source of categories and concepts that reflect the state of the art of the computing discipline. This classification system plays a key role in the classification of publications in the computer science. This property will help to link the concepts of Wikidata (and so, also wikipedia) to scientists' publications. Open Science is near... Karima Rafes (talk) 22:31, 6 July 2015 (UTC) Discussion @Karima Rafes: Please provide an example that relates to a stated, existing Wikidata item, as done for other property proposals. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 09:04, 17 July 2015 (UTC) @Pigsonthewing: I inserted examples. It's ok ? --90.44.36.135 11:47, 17 July 2015 (UTC) Thank you. It seems that the ID is, for instance "10002997" and the formatter URL is "http://dl.acm.org/buildccscode.cfm?id=$1&lid=f". Is that pattern consistent? (i.e. can we always replace "$1" with an ID and get a vaid URL?) Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:56, 17 July 2015 (UTC) @Pigsonthewing: It seems, we can always replace "$1" with an ID and get a vaid URL. The two solutions are good for me. I'm prefer URL because the user of wikidata can see directly the page of ACM about this ID but it's true, the URL is not very nice... We replace the type URL by a integer ? --Karima Rafes (talk) 08:34, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
@Karima Rafes: Not quite; we actually use "string" datatypes for such things. I've made the necessary changes, above, but I see that both of your examples use the same value. Please check. Thank you. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 08:57, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing: Great ! Now, we wait the validation ? --Karima Rafes (talk) 09:03, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
@Karima Rafes: No, we need to resolve "both of your examples use the same value". Is that correct?
@Pigsonthewing: Yes this is correct. For the same ID, there will be hundreds of entities. Here computer vulnerability (Q631425) malware (Q14001) will have the same id 10002997 --Karima Rafes (talk) 16:04, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
@Karima Rafes:, So each of these numbers corresponds to a class ('category') of items. In that case shouldn't this property be used on the wikidata item corresponding to the ICM category, rather than using it on every item in that category? Will adding it to every item breach any ICM copyright?
Note that the ICM categorisation has only one property (the category) so it may well be better to add the ICM category to every item rather than trying to bend the wikidata statements to fit the ICM categorisation. @Pigsonthewing: what do you think? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 15:39, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
So how many of these IDs does ICM have? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 20:52, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing: Sorry, I do not know ICM. I speak about ACM Computing Classification. I suppose, ICM is one of hundreds of classification in the world. Here, the question is not to give again (and again...) a new category in Wikidata. I do not know if ACM is the best or not. The question is : How do you link the "million" of scientific publications with ACM's ID with the page of Wikipedia via Wikidata ? My proposition is to show the old publications in relation with a page of Wikipedia via a gadget that will use the ACM's ID in Wikidata. Have you an other manner to do that ? This new property is not nice but it's the more simple solution for linking Wikipedia to computer science's publications. I hope you are convinced. Bye --Karima Rafes (talk) 07:59, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
@Karima Rafes: Which proportion of the ACM categories don't have their counterparts in Wikidata items ? I bet only a few ... This is a case for Databases interlinking, and Wikidata is quite good at it. We can ask for a "mix and match" (https://tools.wmflabs.org/mix-n-match/?#) dataset to directly map the ACM categories to their Wikidata items. Wikidata has not to replicate any classification in the world, but has to find nice ways to interlink databases. I'm afraid adding a property to reflect another classification is not the custom here, we use this to source our own classification statements and properties like main subject (P921). author talk page 09:15, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry; I meant ACM. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 10:03, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
@Pigsonthewing:@TomT0m: Another solution, it's to change the name of this property by : "ACM 2012 ID" and the description : "ACM's ID for databases interlinking". So the wikidata's users will not use this property for creating another classification in Wikidata. This property will be only an ID for "Databases interlinking". What do you think ? Bye --Karima Rafes (talk) 10:16, 4 August 2015 (UTC)
I would say to leave the label alone and rewrite the description to make clear it is only for the wikidata item corresponding to that ACM category and not for the members of the category. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 16:16, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
@Filceolaire: But the aim is to link the entities of Wikidata with ACM's categories via this property. It's exactly the same problem with the ROME Occupation Code (v3) (P867) for the occupations and there are no problems with other classifications in wikidata. I simplified the description and label to avoid using it as a category (like the property ROME Occupation Code (v3) (P867)). It's more clear now ? Bye --Karima Rafes (talk) 20:08, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Karima property ROME Occupation Code (v3) (P867) can be used to label wikidata items (not "entities". On wikidata "entitities" = "properties" + "items"). Property occupation (P106) is then used to link items for persons to these occupation items.
Similarly the proposed "ACM Classification Code 2012" property can be used to link to the corresponding wikidata items (items with the "subclass of (P279)" property) but individual wikidata items associated with this category will use a number of different properties to link to it, including instance of (P31), part of (P361), main subject (P921), facet of (P1269) so it may be difficult to harvest all of these associated items (but if you manage to do so you will have more info than the ACM "category" relation would give you.
Having said that I   Support the creation of this property. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 17:23, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Joe Filceolaire. I   Support the creation of this property. --Karima Rafes (talk) 07:57, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Awesome idea. The fact that currency units are somewhat unwieldy due to exchange rates is an issue that needs attention, but it should not prevent us from creating interesting and relevant properties like this. Emw (talk) 19:00, 10 May 2014 (UTC) • Comment I think issues are more about verifiability/privacy/volatility than with exchange rate fluctation (very large fortunes are often stocks, and often mostly in just one company, which means that the volatility in local currency will often have more impact than exchange rate fluctation). It means that we should have a date qualifier providing a day, not just a year, if we want something a bit precise, and I am not sure such data exist. This best known source about large wealth is Forbes 500 but it is not really a model of precision and transparency. I cannot even find any indication about how they got their data. And even if we say "this is what we have, so let's go with it", their might be a copyright issue as their is arguably an element of creativity about determining these wealth data (not sure about that actually, maybe its ok as US laws are more permissive than Europe's in this respect). All that does not mean I am opposing this property, just wondering about its practical implementation. • Also about the datatype, I do not think that currencies are planned as a unit anytime soon. Should we rather create a "currency" qualifier ? --Zolo (talk) 07:28, 16 May 2014 (UTC) The concerns about copyright and sourcing seem like a stretch, and, in the seemingly remote chance they're valid, applicable to many if not most of our existing properties. More information on the Forbes ranking is in The World's Billionaires. The "currency" qualifier seems like a reasonable workaround for proper unit support. Emw (talk) 13:00, 16 May 2014 (UTC) Yes, a currency qualifier is a good idea. Not sure why there are privacy problems (this appears in infoboxes already) or copyright (Wikipedia is CC-BY-SA and uses that info). --Jakob (talk) 13:27, 16 May 2014 (UTC) @Emw, Jakec: What was not planned were currency conversions, but IIRC currency units are feasible.

Emw (talk) 15:14, 17 May 2014 (UTC) Micru, John says: "Yes, currency will be among those units." Emw (talk) 00:51, 18 May 2014 (UTC) @Emw:. Currently, we are refraining from importing European population data, following the official advice from the legal team. Much of it is CC-BY-SA but that does not appear to be permissive enough. I am not saying that we can't find uncopyrightable data about this, just that importing the full Forbes list may not be ok - and that in most cases the data are imprecise and debatable. --Zolo (talk) 16:38, 17 May 2014 (UTC) Zolo, could you please provide a link to that advice from the legal team regarding European population data? If that data can't be included on Wikidata because it's CC-BY-SA (is population data even copyrightable under US law?), then presumably we should delete Dewey Decimal Classification (P1036), since the Dewey Decimal Classification is not freely licensed, or at best licensed under CC BY-NC-ND, which is not compatible with CC0. A comment in Wikidata:Property_proposal/Archive/17#P1036 mentions it's "free to use the simple ID" from DDC, but the statement is rather tenuously sourced. If we're using DDC ID without formal approval from the legal team on the presumption that it's OK, then why prevent this property from being created? You mention "importing the full Forbes list may not be ok". I just semi-randomly went through the Wikipedia articles of several people in http://www.forbes.com/billionaires/list/, and Dietrich Mateschitz (#142), Joseph Lau (#143), and S. Truett Cathy (#214), Karl Wlaschek (#312), Ronald Lauder (#410), and Anil Agarwal (#534) all have net worth claims sourced to the Forbes list. If you're basing your rationale on copyright standards, then shouldn't we delete most coverage about net worth in Wikipedia's prose content? It's essentially all cited to Forbes. And again, regarding the precision and debatability of the data, that is not unique to this property, nor, in my opinion, a compelling reason in this case to not source statements to Forbes. Forbes seems far and away to be far and away the most cited source for this data in the world -- presumably the reference source is good enough for Wikidata. Also, properties like genomic start (P644) and genomic end (P645) are debated among biologists, and more accurate values regularly supersede less accurate values, but this doesn't mean those properties aren't appropriate. The same holds for claims about medical condition (P1050), cause of death (P509), etc., etc. It doesn't mean we shouldn't have these properties, it simply means that we need to cite our sources. Emw (talk) 00:46, 18 May 2014 (UTC) @Emw: Citing a source in a article and make a machine-readable copy of a list are two different things. The advice of the legal team is meta:Wikilegal/Database Rights. Apparently, things are simpler for the US than for the EU though. If it is legally ok to import the Forbes list, I have nothing against it, I am just warning that it is very imprecise (and also, some data are given for "X and family" and I am not sure we can use that in the item about X without family). I realize I have not replied to the more general point about privacy/verifiability. The sort of issue I had in mind was more like there is a strong suspicion that politician X has accumulated 20 millions but nothing is reallly proven. That does not mean this property should not be created, but I think its usage would deserve a close watch. --Zolo (talk) 06:49, 18 May 2014 (UTC) ──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Zolo, thanks for the pointer. Is European law applicable to storing data on Wikidata? My understanding is that only United States law is applicable in that regard. If European law is applicable then it seems the Forbes data (and a vast swath of other data currently used on Wikidata) should not be on Wikidata per the sweat of the brow doctrine. If it is not applicable, then an important question is: do Forbes's net worth statements amount to a creative expression? Is a set of statements about the net worth of 1,645 people copyrightable? Forbes describes the methodology behind their 2014 Forbes Billionaires List as follows: To compile net worths, we value individuals’ assets–including stakes in public and private companies, real estate, yachts, art and cash–and take into account estimates of debt. We attempt to vet these numbers with all billionaires. Some cooperate; others don’t. We also consult an array of outside experts in various fields. That methodology isn't obviously subjective, original or creative. I think another important point to make here is that using the Forbes list data (even all of it) to cite individuals' net worth claims would not be "importing the Forbes list". Claims for this property would not be directly compiled in a list; they would go onto Wikidata pages about individuals. This seems to avoid the "selection and arrangement" criterion for database or list protections. Finally, I see no fundamental difference between these claims existing on Wikipedia (which they already do) and them existing here on Wikidata (which is being proposed). The sampling of Forbes data in Wikipedia articles described in my previous post indicates that Wikipedia uses at least a substantial portion of the Forbes list. Much of this exists in highly structured infoboxes as the 'net_worth' parameter. Those infobox statements on Wikipedia are trivially machine-readable. Statements about net worth Wikipedia's prose are also very machine-readable, e.g. with a simple set of regular expressions. If copyright concerns surrounding the Forbes list prevent this property can be created on Wikidata, then the logically consistent thing to do would be to delete almost all claims in the Template:Infobox_person parameter 'net_worth' from Wikipedia. If you don't support doing that, then why not support this property? Emw (talk) 17:00, 18 May 2014 (UTC) I am not opposing this property, and tend to support it even. But as the datatype is not here yet, we may as well discuss it here :). There may not be a fundamental difference between copying the list of in Wikipedia and in Wikidata, but still there is a difference in degree (I 'd say machine readability/data-minability of Wikidata > Forbe's website > Wikipedia). And I am not sure their data can be considered orginal or creative (asset valuation implies methodologicla choice but their do not appear extremely sophisticated not particularly original, and their appear to be gaps in their list but that probably does not qualify as active selection of data). Yes, it's quite possible that everything is fine, but sometimes, law is a bit surprising so I don't know. --Zolo (talk) 20:14, 18 May 2014 (UTC) On hold To be re-opened when the datatype is there. --Micru (talk) 13:45, 23 May 2014 (UTC) • Comment Should this go to "pending"? --- Jura 14:19, 23 May 2014 (UTC) Yes, I agree with Jura.

(needed only if Number (dimensionless) and Number (with dimension) do not have the same datatype!)

• Description: any kind of values
• Datatype: QuantityValue / Number (with dimension / unit) - (1 Sandbox type per available data type)
• Domain: any kind of values
• Infobox parameter: any/generic (but more for testing than productive)
• Comments:

To be honest I am badly informed about wikidata, just to make that clear. I do think that I need a property to be created in order to store values, please confer Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/DrTrigonBot and Wikidata talk:Infoboxes task force#Feasibility of DrTrigonBot/Subster to update Wikidata. Thanks for all your help and patience. Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 20:54, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Sorry. What do you need ? An property with a numeric datatype ? Or a property representing a numeric concept with a string as datatype ? If I take your example with swiss franc you want something like "currency division" to give the nominal value of each coin/note ( 0.05, 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 1000)? Snipre (talk) 21:03, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
In fact I think a good thing would be a generic property (e.g. "DrTrigonBot Value" or even more generic "Bot Value") for the bot in cases when it has data to write for which no property was created yet - as it is the situation right now for a property "Currency Exchange Rate" (or similar) that is needed for swiss franc. This would allow the bot to already be tested or used without having the need to create always the suitable/correct property before being able to check if the bot works at all (in that specific situation), e.g. That would be a really good and useful/helpful thing! Thanks a lot for considering this and Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 21:41, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Just for a test you can see if there is a property in request for deletion using string as datatype or a property which not used in a lot of item or finally try on the demo version of wikidata. Snipre (talk) 22:05, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
Thats clear, currently I am using something else. Also the demo was already used to adopt the bot code. What I need is something permanent. In future and daily (usual) operation there will always be a case where you have to test, since the bot is freely configurable from here - by any user. --DrTrigon (talk) 22:36, 22 March 2013 (UTC)
I think testing bots should not be done on the productive Wikidata, except in the sandbox.--Faux (talk) 17:04, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
It is not testing bots, but testing setups - as on wikipedia itself you will always have situations were you have to change something, modify setup of data, configuration and so on... at least that is what holds for me. Then I have to disagree because testing of bots is needed, e.g. in order to fullfill the bot flag request a given number (e.g. 250) of test edits have to be done. And there will in future clearly be other situations - as soon wikidata will be used frequently... Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 20:55, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
I mean ... it does not need to be something bot specific, what about general maintenance (for human users)? I would even more support such a property, that can be used if it is e.g. not clear yet what property to use, one has to be renamed, other name conflicts or anything else... --DrTrigon (talk) 20:59, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Why not simply a sandbox property per datatype ? I do not see what harm can be done with that, as long as it is clear that it is a sandbox. --Zolo (talk) 21:29, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Sounds good! (+1) Thanks for the idea! Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 22:41, 23 March 2013 (UTC)
Do you plan using that sandbox property only on sandbox/test items, or also on production items? --Faux (talk) 12:12, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
I do not see anything wrong in using it other items. It will not look very good, and if we can avoid using it too massively, that is better, but raw Wikidata items do not look very good anyhow. The important thing is that it does not unintendedly get transcluded to Wikipedias and other clients. And as long as they do not query sandbox statements, I see no reason for that to happen. --Zolo (talk) 12:22, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
So... are we done here, or for what are we waiting? ;) If you agree I would step forwards and create following 3 properties:
1. Label: Sandbox-CommonsMediaFile / Description: Sandbox property for value of type "Commons Media File" / Data type: Commons Media File
2. Label: Sandbox-Item / Description: Sandbox property for value of type "Item" / Data type: Item
3. Label: Sandbox-String / Description: Sandbox property for value of type "String" / Data type: String
any comments or thoughts on this? Thanks and Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 10:52, 29 March 2013 (UTC)
Ok here we go:
so these can be considered done but I think it makes sence to propose the future ones too and set them to the pending page:
• Label: Sandbox-Quantity / Description: Sandbox property for value of type "Quantity" / Data type: Quantity
• (and all other data types to be introduced in future...)
Thanks for all your help! Greetings --DrTrigon (talk) 01:09, 30 March 2013 (UTC)
•   Not done, no longer needed.--GZWDer (talk) 10:06, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

Support. I suggest physical constant --Paperoastro (talk) 13:34, 9 February 2013 (UTC)
Support but I think we need a better name, because “value“ is already the name of the not-label-part of any property.--Svebert (talk) 20:48, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
"Quantity"? - Soulkeeper (talk) 14:25, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Comment I think quantity is a good property on its own, but not for this one. I would propose something more along the lines of 'constant value'. If we can establish a better name than 'value' for it though, I can support this proposal. Joshbaumgartner (talk) 06:51, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Support - but needs a different name. Why not "physical constant"? --Tobias1984 (talk) 07:25, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Strong support What about (en) constant/(de) Konstante/(fr) constante.
Support needs to be renamed "Value of Physical constant" but we will also need "Units of physical constant" to specify what SI units the value is in (as a qualifier?) (unless there will be a data type with value and units). Filceolaire (talk) 18:52, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Support Renamed as per comments.--Micru (talk) 03:10, 3 June 2013 (UTC)

Support for m3/s. - Soulkeeper (talk) 14:28, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Support we will have to wait until numbers are available to see how to work out the units. Joshbaumgartner (talk) 06:51, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
comment should this be a general property Flow or Flow rate, with units->m3/s as a qualifier? Filceolaire (talk) 16:10, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Comment in Wikipedia SI units are not used for many entries but it would be preferable if possible to gain data easily consistent with SI.–دوستدار ایران بزرگ (talk) 14:35, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I think it is absolutely imperative that all data is stored in SI-units within the database to conserve data coherency. Conversion into non-SI units is easy enough to do. --Tobias1984 (talk) 14:45, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

### Height of person

Not done
Description height of tennis player Number (not available yet) "height" in en:template:Infobox tennis biography person n/a MISSING MISSING MISSING ATP/WTA/ITF websites --Stryn (talk) 16:23, 1 May 2013 (UTC)
Discussion
Support Very useful. One more template that use it is the en:template:Infobox football biography .
Comment Remember about units. That English template supports both meters and inches. --AVRS (talk) 14:55, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
We can have 2 different items: Height of person (m) and Height of person (in). Xaris333 (talk) 19:22, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
What about a "unit" qualifier and a constraint that the property should have it? Disclaimer: I don't know how usable it would be in Wikipedia templates. --AVRS (talk) 21:06, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
Support No need to store two numbers, because one can be calculated from the other. Vinkje83 (talk) 10:02, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
Comment this is a useful property, but it clearly applies well beyond persons. I think the label should be changed from 'height of person' to simply 'height'; and its domain should be any item that has volume. Also, the allowed values should be any number greater than 0. Emw (talk) 03:04, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Comment I agree that this should just be rolled into a generic 'height' property. As the number datatype functionality is rolled out, we will see how we have to handle units. Joshbaumgartner (talk) 10:00, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
Support - currently used by infoboxes on sporters, but also on certain objects I assume (towers, mountains, etc). Edoderoo (talk) 11:19, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
Comment IMHO this should be of datatype "quantity". -- 12:16, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
Does this really need a distinct property? The newly created height (P2048) property is rather strangely limited to just buildings, but I can't think of any reason why the height of a building is different from the height of an object which isn't a building or the height of a person. - Nikki (talk) 14:41, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
Range of possible values? --- Jura 15:13, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorted to Person for discussion now that units are available. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 06:29, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Oppose use height (P2048). Josh Baumgartner (talk) 06:29, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Oppose Per Josh Baumgartner. Casper Tinan (talk) 08:00, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Support a persons is not an object. --- Jura 08:10, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
Removed the hidden part. What's wrong with using height (P2048)? That's how the schema.org people seem to do it too. Multichill (talk) 19:30, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
Questions to ask might be: what is the purpose of the schema you mention? How frequently is it actually being used? How many people are using it? What is it being used for? If it's merely for meta discussion of schemes, it might not of any practical use. --- Jura 11:29, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Oppose instead of answering my question, you as a new one. Use height (P2048). Multichill (talk) 21:41, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm not here to answer your questions, I'm just trying to figure out what you are trying to compare it with. --- Jura 22:12, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Oppose per Josh Baumgartner - in German it's body height, height or size, so it would be co-resident Plagiat (talk) 11:50, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
• The label shouldn't be an argument. You might just need to pick better translations. --- Jura 12:00, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Oppose - agree that height (P2048) seems fine for this. It's not clear why we need one property for buildings and one for people (do we then also need one for statues, one for mountains, one for horses...) Andrew Gray (talk) 21:57, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
@Andrew Gray:: range of possible values is different. --- Jura 22:12, 4 October 2015 (UTC)
Surely we could handle this with a constraint report? eg/ [if P31:Q5 and Pxxx > 3m then report an error]? Andrew Gray (talk) 18:06, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Unfortunately not. Special:ConstraintReport requires distinct properties. --- Jura 18:34, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
