Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Again this is not so simplistic. FSB speed is variable and has a relationship with the CPU speed. These things are often configurable settings specific to an individual computer. Also, FSB has been superseded by HyperTransport or Intel QuickPath Interconnect, which further complicates matters. It begs the question do we really need this data, what will it be used for? Danrok (talk) 01:43, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Tobias1984 (talkcontribslogs), using Hz is a bad thing. The clock frequency of actual processors are measured in a small number of GHz, or a big number in MHz. The numbers in Hz will be too big... 1.8GHz = 1,800MHz = 1,800,000KHz = 1,800,000,000Hz. This is very unpractical.--MisterSanderson (talk) 12:42, 20 November 2013 (UTC)
What I'm trying to say is that it shouldn't be a unit-less datatype, but have Hz as a unit. The prefixes and the preferred displaying of MHz and GHz will be handled by the user interface. If it is unit-less it will output 1.8 in a query and it will take additional work to put in the GHz. --Tobias1984 (talk) 12:49, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

@Tobias1984, Emw, Snipre: Anyone have an opinion? --Jakob (talk) 00:23, 1 March 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I am just wondering if we should use a more generic name. The page about the Tsar Bomba uses "Blast yield". In German one uses simply "Sprengkraft" which is "blast force". Maybe "energy released" would emphasize the physical unit. I would also prefer Joules (+SI-prefixes) and convert to kilotons for nuclear weapons. The advantage would be that we could also use it for ammuntion, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:50, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
This seems like a good idea. --Jakob (talk) 12:51, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
I would prefer something like energy released or energy content. Snipre (talk) 15:24, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
How about enthalpy change (delta-H)? That would certainly be the most generic naming and could take positive and negative numbers. Tobias1984 (talk) 10:56, 21 May 2014 (UTC)
@Tobias1984, Snipre: Sure, why not? --Jakob (talk) 12:12, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
For explosion it is difficult to express the enthalpy change: is it only the thermal change ? Including the volume expansion work ? Snipre (talk) 13:42, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold TBD when the datatype is available. Label changed to match nuclear weapon yield (Q3062538). Notification: @Jakec, Tobias1984, Snipre:--Micru (talk) 08:52, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

@Micru: Put a name without nuclear in order to use that property for other explosives than nuclear bombs. Something like "explosive energy equivalent". Snipre (talk) 15:10, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
@Snipre: Good idea, changed. As per w:TNT equivalent a "megaton" is equal to 4.184 petajoules, so probably it should be available as unit.--Micru (talk) 15:18, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
There must be "TNT" in the title, because without specifying the type of explosive it has wrong units. -- MichaelSchoenitzer (talk) 21:55, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support - "Carrier frequency" would be clearer. Wait for "Hz" datatype. -Tobias1984 (talk) 10:56, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support @Tobias1984:- radio station was just an example, I think carrier frequency is needlessly specific to telecom. That said the other use cases I can think of involve a range of frequencies (i.e. violet (Q428124)). Is there a good way to represent ranges in WD yet? Also I was actually thinking of proposing the property "frequency" for events (i.e. annual). Now I guess I will have to call it "Event frequency" although I suppose it is possible to represent "annually" in Hz... :) Mvolz (talk) 22:24, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Remember that in radio you have a carrier frequency and a signal bandwidth, both in Hz so you probably do need specific properties to distinguish these. Suggest these are put on hold until we have a 'number with dimension' datatype. Filceolaire (talk) 15:27, 2 November 2014 (UTC)

Motivation is that we want to collect this information for all the genomes in wikipedia, or annotate lists of genomes for automatic querying of genomic information and for cross language updates. Dan Bolser (talk) 11:58, 15 April 2014 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Such basic metrics should be in Wikidata proper, not just in some external resource. --Magnus Manske (talk) 12:45, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Symbol wait.svg Wait The information is usually measured in "SI-Prefix"+"Basepairs" which is why we should maybe wait for the datatype "number + unit" to become available. For items about Genomes (e.g. human genome (Q720988)) a more generic "information stored"-property would allow us to use the same property for a wide array of items (e.g. also hard drives etc...). Tobias1984 (talk) 15:17, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
Tobias, the value for an "information stored" property in a genome is interesting to consider, but I don't think it's what we'd be looking for in this property. Genomes are conventionally measured in base pairs (or nucleotides), not bits. (Genomes often contain huge tracts of repetitive sequence whose information content can be highly compressed depending on the algorithm, etc.) Emw (talk) 03:25, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: I agree with Emw on this point. --2001:630:206:4001:F1A1:AEAA:B627:DDA0 11:26, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Dan, Magnus, since genomes are commonly treated as sequences, I think it would make sense to at least change "size" to "length" in the proposal. See for example http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/assembly/GCF_000001405.26/, http://ensembl.org/Homo_sapiens/Info/Annotation#assembly.
Following up on "genome size" vs. "genome length": the English Wikipedia article Genome size is illuminating. It says genome size "is typically measured in terms of mass in picograms (trillionths (10−12) of a gram, abbreviated pg) or less frequently in Daltons or as the total number of nucleotide base pairs". In other words, "genome size" can have units of mass or length, depending on the audience. "Genome length" cuts down the ambiguity significantly. And although "genome size" has more hits than "genome length" in scholarly publications (compare here, here), Ensembl and NCBI databases both seem to prefer "length" when talking about this kind of thing. Emw (talk) 04:01, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: Template:infobox genome already notes units of "Mb", but I'll note here that "b" (bases) and not "bp" (base pairs) seems like the best unit for genome length. This accounts for organisms with single-stranded DNA genomes like phi X 174 (the first sequenced genome). Emw (talk) 03:25, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment: From the evidence given, I agree that genome length (in bases) is a better property. --2001:630:206:4001:F1A1:AEAA:B627:DDA0 11:26, 6 May 2014 (UTC)
It's also worth considering that there are several types of biological sequence data we'll want to describe the length of on Wikidata: genes (b), proteins (aa) and chromosomes (b). Do we want one length property for each of these, or one property for all of them? As I note in a related discussion, I'm inclined to use one length property for all sequences.

reason for deprecation

DescriptionQualifier to allow the reason to be indicated why a particular statement should be considered deprecated.
Data typeItem
Domainany statement that is not of top rank
Allowed valuesitem from a controlled vocabulary -- items would need to be P31/P279* a class item made for the purpose
Examplelion (Q140):taxon name (P225) = "Felis Leo" -> this qualifier = item for "superseded taxon"
Sourcereference, Wikipedia article, etc
Robot and gadget jobsCertain types of statement -- eg statements of spouses who are no longer current spouses -- could perhaps be picked up automatically.
A report could be created for how many not top-ranked items lack the explanatory qualifier.
Bots could also check that statements with this qualifier did not have top rank.
Motivation

It seems to me that it would be generally useful to record not just that a statement is deprecated, but why it is deprecated (or not of top rank, if another statement is preferred).

For example, it may be very valuable to distinguish statements that were once considered correct but are no longer accepted, from statements that were never correct (but which may have been widely reported).

Also, it is useful to have a qualifier for this, that then a reference can be specifically attached to, if the reference details the reason for deprecation.

Also, because it could be valuable for queries eg to be able to report all species for which a specifically obsolete classification is noted, as opposed to a more generally incorrect one.

Also, because a qualifier like this would make it more obvious that a statement was deprecated or not top rank, eg when read on the wikidata page or on Reasonator -- something significant because editors sometimes complain that they are wary of adding wrong statements to Wikidata, even with the "deprecated" rank, because they are concerned that readers (or bots) will not notice the little 'deprecated' checkmark.

While Wikidata includes RefSeq RNA ID (P639) and RefSeq Protein ID (P637), RefSeq Genome ID is still omitted. This is a key identifier for genome assemblies, and becomes increasingly important as new species, and strains of microbial species, are added to Wikidata. The RefSeq Genome ID allows mapping of gene to genome. Entrez Gene ID (P351) are gene identifiers specific to the genome of the specimen they were sequenced from. It will be important to include genome assembly identifiers to species and strain items that genes link to. Putmantime (talk) 23:22, 14 October 2015 (UTC)

Orbit apsis (two properties)

Proposed byPaperoastro (talk)

Motivation. One of the orbit parameters described by Wikipedia templates. Astronomers uses different names (see the list here), basing on the "major body" (e.g. aphelion and perihelion for bodies around Sun, perigee and apogee around the Earth, and so on...). Qualifiers can distinguish the different types. If the community prefers to have two property, one for "periapsis" and one for "apoapsis", for me is the same. Paperoastro (talk) 14:26, 18 April 2013 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support I think I would use separate properties (periapsis & apoapsis) so the number can of periapsis can have qualifiers for "mean value", "maximum", "minimum" which I recall does wobble a bit for bodies like the moon. --Tobias1984 (talk) 08:32, 19 April 2013 (UTC)

To be more clear. "Qualifiers can distinguish the different types" as Paperoastro tells above. But the periapsis can also wobble, true, then we can use the "Uncertainty". -- Lavallen (block) 11:12, 21 April 2013 (UTC)
@Tobias1984: if I was too much "cryptic" above. Astronomers use different names for the apsides of orbits, depending on the major of the two bodies: see this table. My idea is use qualifiers to distinguish between aphelion and perihelion, or perigee and apogee, or periastron and apastron, and so on. Periapsis and apoapsis have, by definition, one value, and cannot have "minimum", "maximum" or "mean". --Paperoastro (talk) 16:34, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

Are we really missing some opportunities by having only one property ? From my point of view it is better to keep the number of properties as low as possible but to put effort to find values for all chemical elements or chemicals.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment. Danrok The info boxes listed in Category:War and conflict navigational boxes (Q8170912) allow for two (or more) belligerents, each with a list of allied units/countries/participants. Many of these have the option of listing the number of combatants,, deaths, casualties etc for each unit. This would seem to required qualifiers on qualifiers, which wikidata cannot do. The way round this is to list the <belligerents>, then list all the <units> with each of these having qualifiers for <allied with>, <no. of combatants>, <Commander/leader> number of deaths (P1120), number of casualties (P1590), etc. Will this proposed property work as the <allied with> property to link units with the side they are on? Filceolaire (talk) 18:07, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
I'm not sure that "allied with" and belligerents are quite the same thing. It is possible for two groups to be fighting against the same opponent, but not as allies. Strictly speaking if you were making a list of belligerents you would only have one list of all participating groups. I'm not sure how to come up with a system that works in all situations, because not all wars are the same, and things can get a little complicated, e.g. Italy and Finland during WW2. Danrok (talk) 16:09, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
I meant "allied with" as a qualifier to "belligerent". As we cannot have qualifiers on qualifiers it seems to me we need to have one list of all participating groups so we need to use qualifiers to separate them into 2 (or three) sides/alliances. A system that works in all cases does seem ambitious but at the least we need a system that can capture the same info that can be included in the Category:War and conflict navigational boxes (Q8170912). Until we have a proposal for a set of properties that can do that we should probably hold off on creating new properties related to conflicts. Filceolaire (talk) 12:26, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Josh Baumgartner (talk) 18:01, 5 June 2015 (UTC)
Coding the info contained in the infobox for a battle is not easy.
We need a property to identify the various sides. We have participating team (P1923) for sport. What is the equivalent for a battle?
We need a property for each of the components of the sides in the battle - like participant (P710) for sport and candidate (P726) for elections. Can we use these for a battle or do we need a new property? "belligerent"?
We need qualifiers for each of the components of each side - what side they fought on (allied with?), how many of them were there, deaths, injured, who was their leader etc.
We need to identify the two (or more) sides - the name at the top of each column. Do we call each of these an "alliance", "side"? What works for the Union Army at Bull Run, The Allies at Normandy and for The Wood Elves at the battle of the Five Armies?. These statements will also have qualifiers for leaders, casualties etc.
Notice that if you list the components of each alliance in qualifiers to the alliance statement then there is nowhere to put the leaders and casualties of the component. Because of this I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose this property proposal. We do need an "allied with" property as a qualifier to each component, alongside qualifiers for leaders, casualties, numbers etc.

Besides students count being a very awkward wording, this need is really more akin to population (P1082), but for organizations instead of places. Something signifying that this university has this many students enrolled, this organization has this many members, etc. I'm blanking on the generic word, unless it's simply count, used with the qualifier of (P642). So Jagiellonian University (Q189441) would have count => 51601 of (P642) => student and count => XXXX of (P642) => faculty, etc. Some organizations may have a need to clarify between undergrad/grad students, or on-campus/online students, too, which qualifiers could help distinguish.

I think this make sense as all competitions or tournaments have their own rules, which make the list of valid competition stages quite hard to complete or easy to misuse. What we actually mean is a property to put a hierarchy on stages items, maybe follows (P155), and a property like opponents who made it to the next step ... That's a model where we got everything we need and that would work with any kind of competitions without problems, without the need to add a new property. To complete

. TomT0m (talk) 12:16, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
I can how that would work, but I must say I strongly disagree with that structurally. Interpreting instance of (P31) as "is a" makes the statement completely wrong (it's not a list, it's an individual world cup final match). It would be more appropriate to say
< 1998 FIFA World Cup Final (Q585295) View with Reasonator View with SQID > instance of (P31) View with SQID < FIFA World Cup final >
, which is what I have been doing for FA Cup Final matches until now.
However, although it's technically correct to use , it seems IMHO much better to use . Thinking about how we use instance of (P31) human (Q5) for people (rather than call them instances of poets, scientists, disabled people, or any other potential sub-classification), it would appear more consistent to stop at the level of 'football match' and use other properties to specify the other more specific attributes of the match. I'm aware that this is really a matter of opinion and very much related to how instance of (P31) should be used - of course I'm happy to back down if nobody agrees with me :)
Yes, this is a list page but the case for list pages versus classes is still a mess, as a list is often just a list of instances, people like Filceolaire just think they should be merged with classes items :) ... Did you read Help:Classification ? This explains how classification works in languages such as OWL. Their is a strong relations beetween classes and queries in those languages, as a query can define what a class means, beeing a worldcup match can be defined as beeing a football match in the worldcup competition for example. In Wikidata this could mean that, if a user says that an item is an instance of world cup final, a bot could just as well fill the part of <World cup> statement just by knowing the query ... If the item is tagged as an instance but does not appear in the query, then we would know there is missing informations in this item. I think such possibilities should not be avoided just because a few number of classes like disabled people are not really acceptable. Is see no problem in the poet example, as the class of all poets can be defined by queries about whether or not they are authors of a poem item, or if they has poet as an occupation. If you're talking about peoples, just classifying them as people is not much of a classification :) TomT0m (talk) 13:17, 13 June 2015 (UTC)
Many thanks for the clarification... I have no real experience with classification beyond what I've picked up from using Wikidata, so will happily go along with your recommendations as you clearly have the experience to back up your suggestions :) I see what you mean about the lists vs classes case, it seems like one of the many areas where we're a little way of anything concrete being decided. I had read the Classification help page before, but found it very useful to read again. I would personally love to see a Wikidata task force set up for classification as I keep feeling it's something that the layman has little chance of entering in a consistent way, but that's obviously a discussion for another place..
I'm happy to carry on using instance of (P31) FA Cup Final (Q4484477) (or whatever other type of match is applicable) as that's what I've been using so far anyway - it doesn't match how other editors seem to have been entering data, but we'll get there in the end.

For English soccer we have FA Cup Final (Q4484477) and list of FA Cup finals (Q769746) but in most cases we just have a "list of" article like en:List of FIFA World Cup finals. This article is a collection of all the FIFA finals so in wikidata terms it is a class. I agree that <'instance of:'List of FIFA World Cup finals'> doesn't make sense in English and that is why the wikidata item associated with this article should be renamed "FIFA World Cup finals" with "List of FIFA World Cup finals" as an alias and it should have a "list of" statement and a "subclass of" statement and it should be used as a target for 'instance of' statements, so that is what I am going to do.

Discussion
There is no reason to limit the number involved to trains. We already have number of participants (P1132) to express the number involved in an event, and a train accident is an event. What about a construction like
< the accident > participant (P710) View with SQID < train (Q870) View with Reasonator View with SQID >
number of participants (P1132) View with SQID < 3 >
 ?
Like that if a car and a human was involved we can add
< the accident > participant (P710) View with SQID < train (Q870) View with Reasonator View with SQID >
number of participants (P1132) View with SQID < 3 >

Hmm, I had assumed that "participants" was restricted to humans. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 20:57, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Thryduulf: participant (P710) is already being used for teams in a league table and in principle can be used for an event however it has datatype 'item'. For many events the number of participants may be large and we may not have an item for each participant so there may be a need for a 'number of participants' or 'number involved' property. If you want to amend this proposal so it could do that job you will have my support. As currently proposed it is, I believe, too narrow and specialised. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 17:07, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm happy to broaden. I don't know how to do that and keep a specification of what the type of participant is. Something like "number of <item> involved: n" would be good. Either suggest it here or propose it separately and I'll withdraw this. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 21:28, 22 August 2015 (UTC)

Properties for specific levels of administrative units

Currently, items of populated places (villages, towns, cities, city districts etc.) are equiped with located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) which should contain the immediately superior unit. Such a statement can be (hypotetically) supplemented with a qualifier which would define which kind (level) of the administrative unit is linked.

However, the invoke function is not (and will be not in the foreseeable future) able to work with qualifiers, is not able select the requested value by qualifier and is not able to work with a multilevel statement tree structure (imitating the categorization structure) and extract the appropriate value from them using structured conditioning. Said simply: when we have a specific item of any place - we cannot invoke the municipality, the district, the region or the land where the place is. The only level of administrative unit which have its specific property and is widely used for populated places is country (P17).

The new function of Wikidata:Arbitrary access can be very helpful e.g. in monument lists created for Wiki Loves Monuments. They can help to fulfill specifying entries in the list tables as well as prefilled at the file description pages of images uploaded using campaing link to UploadWizard as well as to help with precise automatic categorization of such images. However, the statements need to be specific enough to be usable for practical work.

I propose to create specific properties for specific levels of administrative units. In case of my country (Czechia), we need properties:

  • municipality
  • district
  • region
  • land

Format and usage should be analogous to the existing country (P17):

--ŠJů (talk) 07:25, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Do you propose to create separate properties for each level of adminunits?--Ahonc (talk) 07:34, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes. As explained above. --ŠJů (talk) 07:42, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
@ŠJů: Can you work with Lua ? It's not really hard to make an equivalent of Invoke in lua using Wikidata API, who can manipulate qualifiers. I'll encourage you to poke the lua developers of the Wikipedia of your language. By knowing the instance of (P31) of a division, you can pretty much know which kind of division is the upper level of that item. Note that the administrative model of division differs from one country to another, which would make a mess of properties ... Other projects are trying to work this "upper division" model, for project consistency sake I'd say it's better that all the administrative division local project stay aligned with this. author  TomT0m / talk page 10:05, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
But why we need qualifiers? We should use P131 for Q12036136, then P131 for Q852457, then P131 for Q188399.--Ahonc (talk) 10:18, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Another problem with the model ŠJů propose above, is that some administrative divisions maybe have the same "name" in one language, but completly different names in other languages. In Swedish we use different words for a county in US, UK, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Russia. We would then need one property for each type of administrative level in every present and historical country. We would soon reach 1000 properties only for administrative units. The disadvantage of the other model is that the simple hierarchy is sometimes missing, and in Sweden is it only present in the relation between municipalities and counties. -- Innocent bystander (talk) 11:29, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Why? We may create universal properties for this, e.g. Level1AD, Level2AD, Level3AD, Leve4AD, Level5AD, Level6AD etc.--Ahonc (talk) 11:36, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Then I don't get how using specialized properties makes things really for Sweden :) If there is no hierarchy or a flat one, then ... whatever you do things will remains flat. author  TomT0m / talk page 11:37, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. We used to have 'type of administrative territorial entity' and we replaced it with instance of (P31) and that is what we can use for this. <instance of (P31):municipality of the Czech Republic (Q5153359)>. There is a reason we do not put the higher levels on each item and that is because these hierarchies change from time to time. If the info is in one place only then it is much easier to keep it accurate. This does mean that you need to go to a different item to get the links to the higher levels and that is something we live with.
Taxa used to have something similar and the specialised properties for upper levels were deleted so now we only have parent taxon (P171). Just be thankful country (P17) is still around. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 13:56, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

@Spinster: BA candidate.svg Weak oppose Mmm Wikidata is not about terms but about concepts, and is mutilingual, so this does not fits well.

TomT0m (talk) 19:16, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
See the examples above. You are correct that I should not say these are terms - they ARE concepts, regardless of their translation. I updated the proposal to reflect this. For instance, the Finnish Wikipedia article about action painting, Toimintamaalaus, mentions Harold Rosenberg. Movements and concepts like action painting (Q217213) and relational art (Q2566149) and stipule (Q304216) have definitely not been discovered or invented by those people (usually critics, researchers). They were "seen" and named by them for the first time, that's a different thing. Spinster (talk) 19:26, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

@Spinster: The person that created a new name for that concept ... did not invent that term ? There still is a confusion beetween the concept and the term :). A man can discover or describe a concept, like a taxon, then create a name for this new concept. Actually we already have a property taxon author in taxonomy I could very well see generalized. But I think a construction
< the stuff > name (or original name) (or late name) search < thename >
author (P50) View with SQID < the person >
is pretty good, it does not talk of the concept, just of the name (plus the inventor of a treasure, or a planet, for example, obviously did not create them, hence the name of the property). I don't see a need for this property. Statements with this pattern will just have to be labelled coined by in infoboxes since it's a common way to express this in english.

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment how will it be different to military branch (P241)? --Pasleim (talk) 22:13, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
@Pasleim: military branch (P241) is a very high level, very broad category: just country and branch, such as Fooian Army, Fooian Navy, etc (practical examples would be items like Royal Navy (Q172771), Royal Air Force (Q165862), United States Marine Corps (Q11218), United States Army (Q9212) and so forth) — at least in theory and by design; it might be misapplied in practice. This property would be for a lower level, giving specific regiments, squadrons etc (such as Grenadier Guards (Q772054), 45 Commando (Q4638181), 101st Airborne Division (Q165256), 2nd Foreign Infantry Regiment (Q2703367) etc). As such, military branch (P241) is supposed to be limited to a single value, because it is unlikely for a person to transfer between, for example, the Army and the Navy; while this property could potentially have many values, each qualified with start and end dates, because transferring between units within a branch is common. - AdamBMorgan (talk) 11:00, 9 June 2015 (UTC)
@AdamBMorgan, Pasleim: I agree about branch. Even if a person does serve in multiple branches (I served alongside some who did) that is fundamentally different than tracking the actual unit they are part of and needs to be maintained as its own piece of data. For example, a Navy corpsman may be assigned to a Marine unit; they are still Navy, but the unit they are assigned to is not. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 15:48, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

BA candidate.svg Weak oppose I think it's a team classifications issue, so instance of (P31) can deal with it as a classification property. Example
The <less than 18 football team> item could have statements like :
  • < less than 18 football team > subclass of (P279) View with SQID < football team >
  • < less than 18 football team > max member age search <  18 >
  • < less than 18 football team > min number age search <  16 >

@TomT0m: Sounds convincing. Is there any "min number age" and "max number age" properties yet? Yellowcard (talk) 18:07, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
After more thoughts about it: I don't think this solution would be the best one. Using items like under-21 sport (Q21152744) with a new property "age group" would be better and could be used as qualifier for instance of (P31)national association football team (Q6979593) instead of a new statement. This way we would still have the direct relation of the under XX national teams to national association football team (Q6979593) which has certain advantages escpecially for the direct access from Wikipedia versions.

Should we treat MCC and MNC as interrelated to make each pair distinct? And second, how do we deal with one company with many MNCs, like worldwide telecom Orange?

The goal of this property is to allow to have something less strong than equivalent property (P1628) in order to do mapping with external vocabularies. For example there is no "father" property in schema.org but only a "parent" property. With this new property we would be able to declare directly in Wikidata that father (P22) "subproperty of" http://schema.org/parent . The main use case of such mappings would be to create tools that outputs Wikidata content directly in these vocabularies. Tpt (talk) 19:11, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support But I would prefer "subproperty of" since this is already used in RDFS, OWL, and Wikidata (subproperty of (P1647)). However, to clarify the distinction from subproperty of (P1647), I would suggest to call this one "subproperty of external property". --Markus Krötzsch (talk) 09:46, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment A general concern with all of these external mapping relations is that Wikidata has its own data values that are often more complex than plain RDF (XML Schema) values. Therefore, in a strict sense, it does not make sense to declare a Wikidata property to be (sub/super/equivalent)Property with an external RDF property that takes completely different types of values. The documentation of these mapping properties should explain how exactly the value of an external property is to be converted from a certain XML Schema datatype to Wikidata and vice versa. For example, if you state father (P22) "subproperty of" http://schema.org/parent then it involves the assumption that the Wikidata items that are values of P22 are converted to URIs before being taken as values for http://schema.org/parent. We can do this for all Wikidata property values based on our RDF mapping but for complex values this mapping has several forms for a value. For super properties it is more complicated since the mapping might depend on the concrete use. For example, if some external property "http://example.org/father" would be declared to be a subproperty of Wikidata's P22, then this would probably mean: "If an external object S has an item Sitem in Wikidata, and there is an external statement "S http://example.org/father O", and O is a URI that has an item Oitem in Wikidata, then the statement "Sitem P22 Oitem" can be imported. Making this mapping requires a lot more background information on how external URIs (or other XSD values) are mapped to Wikidata. There can also be cases where an external triple, even though it uses a property that is mapped to a Wikidata property, cannot be related to Wikidata in any way, since there is no meaningful mapping of the subject and object (for example, a birthdate should use some time-value as its object; if it uses some other thing then it makes no sense). This is why all of these mapping properties are very different from the standard "subproperty of" et al. relations in RDFS and OWL. --Markus Krötzsch (talk) 09:46, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Motivation

Most associations produce some kind of periodical publication for their members. Especially those with the goal of elevating public knowledge like historical societies, learned societies or professional associations produce scientific journals or yearbooks intended for a general audience beyond the circle of the actual members. The rôle of the association is usually that of issuance and taking responsibility and varies: Smaller associations select a printer's shop but perform most of the work by volunteer labor (roughly comparable to self-publishing (Q1568650) without a proper publishing company), huge associations like American Mathematical Society (Q465654) probably have publishing departments with full-time staff comparable to any commercial publishing venue.

Interestingly enough the usual German term for this role is "Herausgeber" (a corporate counterpart to P98 (P98) here reserved for persons) and the English one is "publisher" (identical to publisher (P123) reserved for commercial publishing firms). Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici (Q5152387) is an internationally known journal, from en:Commentarii Mathematici Helvetici we can learn that it is edited by a person (as editor-in-chief) and publishing (probably the "usual" actions like organizing the printing process, distribution, subscription handling, fee collection, possibly also the infrastructure for the peer reviewing processes) is outsourced to the much bigger European Mathematical Society. However the journal still is most closely connected to the Swiss Mathematical Society as the issuing (corpoarate) body, according to en:WP the Society "owns and operates" the journal (I imagine: holds the rights on the name, implements the board of editors, interacts with the publisher, and most importantly takes financial and moral liability for failure or misconduct, so in theory the Society is also the collector of excess revenue generated in the publishing of the journal ;-).

Many of these periodicals like Rendiconti del Circolo Matematico di Palermo (Q2535964) carry their issuing body akready in the name, but I don't think that named after (P138) would fit the particular role of the association with respect to the publication. Loosely related properties are maintained by (P126) (IIRC introduced for railways and bridges but now broader in scope), printed by (P872) and distributor (P750) as properties for subprocesses of the publishing chain, standards body (P1462) (quite exactly the role we need but with focus on standards, not publications in general), commissioned by (P88) (rather far-fetched, but in case there is a separate publishing company involved it's clearly the task of the issuing body to commision the work to that company) and the rather unspecific contributor(s) to the creative work or subject (P767) which encompasses "co-creators". A concept of "Corporate authorship" (author (P50) or creator (P170)) IMHO does not apply here, the journals may sometimes contain official communications of the association but the bulk content consists of scholarly or scientific or educational or recreational articles with personal authorship like in any other journal. Gymel (talk) 22:31, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. publisher (P123) is meant to cover this. "Publisher" in English can be a big organisation or a small group of amateurs. Some professional societies work with a magazine publisher where the society is the P98 (P98) (i.e. they select the articles) while the publisher sells the advertising and organises the printing and distribution. I don't see the need for another property. Filceolaire (talk) 21:48, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
Well, P98 (P98) is constrained to humans only. But I see that I may have been fooled by the German description of publisher (P123): All other languages formulate it in terms of "responsibility" for the publication, the German one however goes along the lines of "the media company which puts it on the market". But "ordinary publications" are cited by giving place and year of publication and publisher's name: That "publisher" is clearly the publishing house, i.e. the company you or your bookseller would have to contact in order to obtain a copy. So I'm inclined to assumue that the German description got it right and the wording for all other languages does not reflect the intended purpose and acutal usage of the property.
Anyway: The "Commentarii Mathematici Helvetii" example above shows (a human editor-in-chief and) two organizations with distinct roles. Putting the "responsible" Swiss Mathematical Society into the publisher (P123) slot following your suggestion leaves the question where the European Mathematical Society acting as "publishing house" belongs: Also in publisher (P123) but with a distinguishing qualifier for "function"?. -- Gymel (talk) 22:33, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
What about <owned by (P127):Swiss Mathematical Society (Q684691)> since the Swiss own the journal and just subcontract the publishing to the Europeans? Filceolaire (talk) 14:30, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
Indeed ownership (actually possession (Q829909) and property (Q6422240)) usually lie with the society and not with the publishing house. But I fear nobody would understand that the economic "ownership" would be intended to extend to the bibliographic role of creator or corporate editor which consist of organizing, running and being responsible for the editorial process of content selection. I checked the articles on en.wiki for major journals like Nature (Q180445), Science (Q192864), and The Lancet (Q939416) and they are described as owned by their respective publishing companies or scientific societies. The infoboxes always declare a "publisher", in the split case stereotypically as "X on behalf of Y". en:Journal of High Energy Physics would be an example for that, see JHEP Home page for details: "The Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP) is an international, peer-reviewed, online-only, scientific journal owned by the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA - Trieste, Italy) and published by Springer".
That means owned by might well work for the English language and two questions remain:
  1. is owned by (P127) for all languages sufficiently broad in meaning (I tend to question that for the German language)
  2. even if, would we prefer to have a distinct poperty for "bibliographic" usage (we are here talking about the subclass "journals" of creative works and aspects of intellectual responsibility, ownership of physical copies or works of art would be in the same domain but something very different). -- Gymel (talk) 10:56, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, publisher (P123) works fine. If the act of publishing the work is a collaboration, it seems feasible to list all parties with publisher (P123). As for P98 (P98), it should not be limited to people, but instead broadened to allow organizations as well. owned by (P127) is correct to represent the economic relationship, and can be used in addition to publisher (P123) but is not a substitute for it. The following should do the job for the examples:

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment Is this still valid with the introduction of the GHS classification ? Is this not redundant with the NFPA system ? Snipre (talk) 23:12, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
Snipre:
With respect to NFPA: This is indeed the same system used by the NFPA. However, I looked up Wikidata properties with "NFPA" or "National Fire Protection Association" in the name and could not find any properties that corresponded to this classification scheme (IA/IB/IC/II/IIIA/IIIB). So this would still be a novel property for this specific classification scheme.
With respect to the GHS: I did some research and OSHA indeed harmonized their hazard communication system to align with the GHS. The regulation covering flammable liquids in the workplace is 29 CFR 1910.106 which uses the GHS system. However, confusingly, OSHA still has materials on their website using the outmoded system; see e.g. this resource page on flammable liquids. And if you do some Google searching, you'll find that people still use these terms, even if from a regulatory standpoint they're no longer applicable. I absolutely agree we need GHS codes for flammability but from a public health perspective it may be worthwhile to include these other codes as well if they are codes people use and know. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 15:35, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
@James Hare (NIOSH): We already have properties for NFPA classification, see NFPA Health (P993), NFPA Fire (P994), NFPA Instability (P995) and based on heuristic (P887). I just want to be sure we don't duplicate the properties. For GHS, I asked the question because I know some organizations plan to switch from their system to the GHS like the SIMDUT classification of Canada. If I mention GHS this is just to be sure we don't create properties for a classification system which will disappears in some years because of the adoption of GHS. If OSHA has its own classification which will be maintained in the next years so we can speak about specific properties. Snipre (talk) 10:01, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Redundant with route of administration (P636). The name of this property is not describing clearly the current proposal but the principle is the same. Snipre (talk) 23:15, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
I understand the logic here, but the name "route of administration" suggests the intended route for a deliberate exposure to a chemical (i.e. a pharmaceutical), which is different from the multiple pathways by which a substance can harm a body. "Route of administration" indicates how to do something; this proposed property indicates "watch out for this", which are two rather different things. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 15:42, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
I've been thinking about this and I think it's important to separate route of exposure and route of administration, especially in the context of medications and their manufacture. Just as one example, aspirin is usually administered by mouth, but those working in aspirin manufacturing can be exposed by breathing in aspirin dust. These should be distinguished.

We have arsenic poisoning (Q730249), cobalt poisoning (Q5138720), ... - The advantage would be that we could use the normal symptoms (P780) property. And I have the feeling that there is more interesting data that we could attach to such items. Plus it would keep substances and medical conditions more separate concepts on Wikidata. --Tobias1984 (talk) 23:12, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
@Tobias1984:, that is certainly one technique we could try. Is there any way we could link to the exposure item from the main item, e.g. cobalt (Q740) to cobalt poisoning (Q5138720)? Could I do cobalt (Q740)has effect (P1542)cobalt poisoning (Q5138720), and then cobalt poisoning (Q5138720)has cause (P828)cobalt (Q740)? In any case I appreciate your help with modeling this data.

@James Hare (NIOSH): I just remembered that we had a similar dicussion a while back and found it in the archive (link). afflicts (P689) should actually be used to show if a disease afflicts a human/horse/cat etc... Adding a qualifier for the organ would be one possibility. But I don't know if a good qualifier has been found yet. Otherwise this proposal would offer a very explicit approach and would be a good idea. - In any case for some statements it is not easy to decide what should qualify what. Maybe separate statements are better? --Tobias1984 (talk) 23:19, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

@Tobias1984:, if we have an existing afflicts (P689) that would allow a qualifier for organs, that would work fine. For what it's worth, I only have affected organ data for humans, but for exposure symptoms, I have data for humans and for "animals" not further specified. Will that create an issue?

BA candidate.svg Weak oppose There are dozens of organizations providing this kind of limitations (at least one per country). Do we want one unique property and the identity of the source can by deducted from the source data or can we use a qualificer ? These questions should be discussed first. Snipre (talk) 23:05, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
If there is a generic property for regulatory exposure limit amount, with the option to qualify which organization promulgated which regulation, that would work fine. Incidentally, do we want such a property to be strictly legal requirements, or also non-binding recommendations that health organizations may also promulgate? The government agency I work for, NIOSH, issues recommended exposure limits (RELs) that often deviate from the permissible exposure limits (PELs) that OSHA requires. See the proposal above for a NIOSH recommended exposure limit property. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 15:48, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
@James Hare (NIOSH): I already started to think about these kind of properties and I had a first draft in my pocket. Please have a look at this table and at the properties
* TLV-TWA (Time-Weighted Average Threshold Limit Value for 8h)
* TLV-STEL (Short-Term Exposure Limit for 15 min)
* TLV-STEL (ceiling limit)
By creating 3 specific properties we can solve the problem of the qualifiers for the application field of each value. Then stay the problem of the mention the organization which fixes that value. So we face 2 solutions one property per organization and 3 qualifiers (8 hours, short duration and ceiling) or 3 specific properties like mentioned above and the mention of the organization as qualifier. For me all organizations are eligible to have their data in WD, we just need a way to differentiate them. Snipre (talk) 09:54, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
This looks reasonable. I have two caveats. First, the time threshold (especially for STELs) may not be the same for each substance; I would have a default time value and then allow for time duration as a qualifier. Also, there are two different types of values: recommended values, which can be suggested by any reasonably knowledgeable organization, and permissible values, which are legally binding requirements. On the WikiProject Chemistry talk page I recommended two separate properties for legally required value vs. recommended the value, with the former having applies to jurisdiction (P1001) as a qualifier and the latter having some other qualifier. How would we fit that into this model: would we create a parallel series of properties for a total of six, or would we find another way to qualify legally binding value vs. recommended value? (Also, threshold limit value should be spelled out.) James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 14:34, 5 October 2015 (UTC)

This is part of a mass importation of data from the Pocket Guide to Chemical Hazards into Wikidata. Note that it is not meant to be used on its own as a statement, but for a qualifier for chemical exposure limit statements. This is because within permissible exposure limits and recommended exposure limits, there are varieties of exposure limits, and different chemicals have different recommendations (ranging from "a little bit during the workday won't hurt" to "avoid if at all possible").

Snipre, would this mean dedicated properties for "recommended exposure limit (time-weighted average)", "recommended exposure limit (ceiling concentration)", etc.? Note that a given chemical isn't going to have more than one; it will have a TWA or a ceiling concentration or a STEL or a carcinogen limit (of effectively zero). James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 15:54, 1 October 2015 (UTC)
@James Hare (NIOSH): Exactly. And no you won't have only one limit because you always have short term and long term exposure limit and depending on the organization some will give you a ceiling concentration instead of a short/long term exposure limit. Snipre (talk) 14:42, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
  • Andy Mabbett is the example Iron or argon? What does this mysterious string mean? I suspect it can be translated into more useful property statements. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 17:44, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
  • @Filceolaire: For elements after the first row you always start with the noble gas of the previous row (in this case Argon). And then you count how many electrons you add in each orbital to reach the element (in this case Iron). In this case 6 electrons in the 3d orbital and 2 in the 4s orbital. I guess we could construct the string from a lot of other more semantic statements, but I think saving the string separately is practical and not too much work. That is just one statement more for each element (~118 statements). --Tobias1984 (talk) 21:57, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
So this says that Fe has 6 electrons more than argon in shell 3 and these are in subshell 3d and has 2 electrons in subshell 4s. All this can be expressed by creating an item for each subshell and adding a bunch of statements of the form
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"2") (applies to part (P518):'shell 1')
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"8") (applies to part (P518):'shell 2')
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"2") (applies to part (P518):'subshell 3s')
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"6") (applies to part (P518):'subshell 3p')
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"14") (applies to part (P518):'subshell 3d')
has part (P527):electron (Q2225) (quantity (P1114):"2") (applies to part (P518):'subshell 4s')
This gives the same information in a clearer form using our existing properties.
I Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose this property. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:18, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
I think we can do better. I would prefer
subject > has part (P527) View with SQID < subshell 3d >
quantity (P1114) View with SQID <  14 >
for example. It's a more hierarchical subdivision, the subshell is a part, it's made of electrons, not the opposite. author  TomT0m / talk page 07:29, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
TomT0m: the 'C' template is leading you astray. That is why I really dislike it. You have put electron (Q2225) as the item but the item in this example is iron (Q677). I suppose we could write
iron (Q677) <has part (P527):'shell 1'> (has part (P527):electron (Q2225)) (quantity (P1114):'2')
but that looks clumsy to me and looks like the quantity applies to 'shell 1' instead of to 'electron'. That's why I wrote it the other way. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:20, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
@FilceolaireThat's not the C template, that's the fact that we use Q number together with the fact that previsualisation is barely usable with the current UI ... This is a tricky question. For example in the RDF partial export, who only exports the main snak if I remember well, the user would get a set of redundant statements "has part" : electron. To me it's better practice to decompose hierarchically an object : an atom has electron shells, the electron shells has electron. This makes the structure more explicit and regular, the fact that an atoms has electrons and that this electrons can be regrouped into shells seems is a less regular scheme that seems more an artefact of the Wikidata data model ... I think a rule of thumb should be that the main snak should by itself add information ... author  TomT0m / talk page 08:06, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
TomT0m I agree that we should try and make sure the bare claim (without qualifiers) should give useful info. In this case we should have a claim
<has part (P527):electron (Q2225)> (quantity (P1114):"26") and that should be preferred rank so basic queries only see that and not the other P527 claims. You could have P527 claims for each of the shells as well I suppose, but I think we also need all the separate <has part (P527):electron (Q2225)> claims if we want to codify the distribution of electrons in the shells without having to create separate items for subshell 3d of iron atoms etc. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 22:00, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose Electron configuration would be much more efficiently handled by having multiple claims such as "has electrons in orbital", which would take in 1-18 (but above 14 only for g orbitals), and be qualified by orbital type (3d etc.).--Jasper Deng (talk) 15:36, 2 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Do we want wikidata to be a product catalog? Maybe wikidata will become that but I don't think we have the resources to maintain a catalog of every camera model and every other mass produced product as well. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
  • What is the quality of the Freebase product data for cameras? Was this a hobby project of some guy which will never be checked against anything or is this information good? How can we tell? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Isn't there a better way to describe cameras using existing properties. (has part (P527)?) How many of these properties can be used on other products? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Because of the above I lean oppose but I could be convinced. Jura? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 23:41, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

Do you plan to collaborate in the field? If yes, what will you likely be doing? --- Jura 05:05, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
I plan to continue to contribute here on the more strategic issues - like the three I raised above - helping to develop wikidata general policy and properties that support it that rather than properties that only work for one domain. What happens with the Freebase camera data will set a precedent for other product data: lets think it through before we make a decision. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 12:17, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
So you participate in strategic issues such as building the code for Wikibase? Or would you collaborate in building a proof of concept of statements? --- Jura 13:38, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm afraid I'm not a programmer. I have been collaborating on building the data models and the properties to implement them here on Wikidata and will continue to do so while I can. Meet me on my talk page if there is anything I can help you with. Meanwhile can you comment on the three questions above? Joe Filceolaire (talk) 19:59, 3 September 2015 (UTC)
With the properties we create, would you be building a proof of concept (series of items with statements)? --- Jura 04:35, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
I thought that was what you were proposing to do when you proposed these properties - create a series of statements based on info imported from Freebase? Doing some more research I see that en:Comparison of digital SLRs already has a lot of cameras and en:Template:DSLR cameras with movie mode list more and en:Template:Infobox camera already is looking for a lot of this data. To answer my own questions above
  • It looks like wikipedia is already compiling a digital camera product catalog. Having the info on wikidata will mean infoboxes and comparison tables can be generated from the same data - simplifying maintenance.
  • There does seem to be enough interest on wikipedia to curate such a catalog and keep it accurate, even if the freebase data were wobbly.
  • Have you compared the Freebase properties with the 'infobox camera' entries? Is there a match? an overlap?
I am coming around to supporting all these - especially as no one else has any issue with them. I was just a little bothered that adding all these seemed to take us in a new direction that hadn't been discussed. Joe Filceolaire (talk) 02:33, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

  •   Oppose A better structure is to introduce a class item for "Given name John and variants", of which both John (Q4925477) and Giovanni (Q1158906) would be instance of (P31) (as well as instances of "male given name"). It would then be easy to query for items that were instances of this class, and then filter for the language of the name being Italian (very easy in SPARQL) -- and would immediately lend itself to any language.
A hierarchical star structure of this kind would be much simpler to maintain and also to query that the structure User:Jura1 proposes (and would not require a multitude of new properties, or indeed any new properties, to implement). Jheald (talk) 13:56, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

  Notified participants of WikiProject Chemistry, @Almondega, Innocent bystander, Filceolaire:

The property already exists but has the wrong datatype (see P1805 (P1805)): currently a string property is used but the name is provided in at least 4 languages (English, French, Spanish and Latin) and can be translated in Russian, Arabic, Chinese as well. So a monolingual datatype is required. No need of multilingual datatype because the WHO only translates in 7 seven languages and no extension for translation is expected.

The proposal is done in parallel at the deletion request of the current property: Wikidata:Properties_for_deletion#World_Health_Organisation_International_Nonproprietary_Name_.28P1805.29. Snipre (talk) 12:27, 3 November 2015 (UTC)

    • @Izno: (Sorry for the late reply, I've been travelling) At for example, en:Template:Infobox_person#TemplateData, there are a list of infobox properties used in the infobox which is also known as Template:Infobox person (Q6249834). Many of these have a direct, 1:1 correspondence with the properties used in Wikidata (indeed, the infobox may transclude the corresponding data from Wikidata). The proposed property would be used to list the former properties. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 15:08, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
      • So, we want the developers to build something which tracks properties at a template-use level. That use seems to be more "useful" per a large number of comments here and above for templates/module tracking of certain properties (and more scalable, and automatically updates, etc. etc.). So in that use I would certainly oppose. This property however would track the use of a property matched to a particular parameter of the template? I think that that property might be interesting. Is that the property you really mean this to be? I think that makes sense. My concern is that (not normally, but sometimes) parameter names change. Thoughts? Also per Multichill, how would you show that a property is used in only one in a particular version of the template? What about modules, where the reference is not immediately obvious? --Izno (talk) 20:04, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
        • This proposal requires nothing of the developers (but of course they can make use of it as they see fit). As noted above (twice!), "Values should have qualifiers (e.g. applies in English Wikipedia (Q328))". The names of parameters are irrelevant; whether something is called, say, "date of birth", "birth date", "DoB" or some other variant has no effect. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:01, 15 April 2015 (UTC)
          • Then I read this as the same request as the now-recently rejected Wikidata:Property_proposal/Archive/29#property_used_in_this_template. Are you sure that's what this property is going to be? Amir's confusion is my own, and I want to be clear about what it is you are proposing here because I don't want to oppose data which might be useful and which wouldn't end up being subsumed by developer investment into automated tracking of properties in templates or modules. --Izno (talk) 18:08, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
  •   Comment I'm also not sure that I understand. Let's say that Template:Infobox architect has a "date of birth" parameter in the English Wikipedia and a corresponding "nascut" property in the Catalan Wikipedia. Where will the names of the parameters be stored? Or am I completely misunderstanding the purpose? --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 21:15, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Discussion

I was trying to define punch (Q1973927), ("A hit or strike with one's fist." Wiktionary) so I added subclass of (P279) => strike (Q3242199), but couldn't find any way of expressing the "with one's fist" part, and I imagine such a property would be useful for defining other actions. (If the third example above is included, this be better termed requires rather than uses.) Popcorndude (talk) 21:22, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Well, it does already have a constraint violation rate above 90%, having been used to list tanks and guns used by Angolan Army (Q17597972), among other things. Though this seems like it would end up a little too broad. "Equipment used/required by an organization, group, or action." I would say broaden item operated (P121), but still have this be separate. Popcorndude (talk) 21:01, 11 June 2015 (UTC)
@Popcorndude: Excellent point, item operated (P121) should probably have its constraints reviewed to reflect current use, but still remain limited to equipment used by organizations. I can get behind this proposal, but would like it better labeled and described to reflect its scope (perhaps: 'executed with', 'physical object required to complete the subject action').
