This page is for the proposal of new properties.

Before proposing a property

  1. Check if the property already exists by looking at Wikidata:List of properties (research on manual list) and Special:ListProperties.
  2. Check if the property was previously proposed or is on the pending list.
  3. Check if you can give a similar label and definition as an existing Wikipedia infobox parameter, or if it can be matched to an infobox, to or from which data can be transferred automatically.
  4. Select the right datatype for the property.
  5. Start writing the documentation based on the preload form below and add it in the appropriate section.

Creating the property

  1. Once consensus is reached, change status=ready on the template, to attract the attention of a property creator.
  2. Creation can be done 1 week after the proposal, by a property creator or an administrator.
  3. See steps when creating properties.

MotivationEdit

TrueAchievements (Q7847301) is a database of video game (Q7889), mostly published on Xbox (but also Windows). It also has downloadable content (Q1066707) − I don’t think they warrant their own property though, so I integrate them here (we currently consider DLCs a subclass of video games). A little usage on English Wikipedia. The data model is per platform-realization, so there may be more than one entry for our Q7889 items. Jean-Fred (talk) 18:23, 24 January 2020 (UTC)

  •   Comment Aaarg, realised there is a numerical ID system which does resolves, eg Observer (Q25340021)6599. However, it does not work for DLCs. Meanwhile, there is a parallel ID system “Product ID”, which has a wider scope (also includes bundles), but does work for both games and DLCs (eg 27037)… Not too sure how best to proceed... Jean-Fred (talk) 12:08, 2 April 2020 (UTC)
    @Jean-Frédéric: My suggestion would be to edit this property proposal to be for the numeric game ID and then create another for the numeric product ID. Jc86035 (talk) 11:46, 8 April 2020 (UTC)

MotivationEdit

Rename all RAL colors and possibly merge them with other color entities without loosing information. This could then also possibly be used as a quantifier for sRGB color hex triplet (P465) to determine which of the given HEX codes matches the RAL color. I'm not sure about merging some items, in general I would like to gather some input on this topic. First step is do have the property :) --DaSch (talk) 19:46, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  •   Comment I don't understand your proposal. The value of the property is the (English) label? Is there a formatter URL? How is this an identifier? Couldn't you just use name (P2561) or official name (P1448) for this? ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:17, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support, but I think you should do a proposal for RAL ID, and other for RAL name. --Tinker Bell 05:47, 31 March 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Just repeats the label/ official name, and too few in number. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 11:12, 25 June 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support - I think this property is important to enable easy identification of colours, for example with automatic identification. I do however think that the prefix RAL should be removed, as this is obsolete and if used as (external) identifier, an URL will likely not be http:...RAL 1001 but http:...&id=1001. I agree with Tinker Bell that there also should be a separate property for the RAL name. Romaine (talk) 13:29, 11 July 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  •   Support It need title in the url otherwise it linking to the most interesting materials instead of game page. See Eurohunter (talk) 21:35, 8 February 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Like Eurohunter wrote - it should be string datatype. Sir Lothar (talk) 13:51, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
    If the proposal is already in “Ready”, please change-it back to not ready if you are going to make significant changes to the proposal.
    I disagree, because crash-time-iv-the-syndicate/z11 is clearly not an Identifier but a slug (which have a habit to not be very stable). The numeric IDs are likely to be way more stable. If it’s just a formatter URL ; then let’s use the gamepressure one which resolves cleanly to the “more interesting material”. (see eg https://gamepressure.com/game.asp?ID=1) Jean-Fred (talk) 17:13, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
    Yes, I think using gamepressure.com would be OK, as they didn't change formatter and still use numeric ID. Sir Lothar (talk) 10:14, 24 February 2020 (UTC)
  • @Eurohunter, Sir Lothar: That's very uncool to radically change a proposed identifier like that without even pinging the proposer. I agree with Jean-Fred, if this is an ID then a numeric ID is much preferable. I   Oppose (struck since this was changed back again, thanks) the current modified version of this proposal. ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:31, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
    • @ArthurPSmith, Jean-Frédéric: Sorry, I thought that if the discussion is still going on, then user can modify proposal (like "Be bold" on Wikipedia). My mistake - I'll remember that next time. I still think that it's better to send reader to the main site of entity (like [1]), rather than to side materials. Sir Lothar (talk) 15:27, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
  • @ArthurPSmith: the first problem here is that you marked it as ready when it wasn't ready (the only support vote wanted the property to look differently then it's proposed). It has no support votes in the form that was proposed and thus shouldn't be marked as ready in it's current form. Please read discussions before marking properties as ready. ChristianKl❫ 13:13, 28 December 2020 (UTC)
    For clarity, I’m the one who remarked it as ready − since it seemed to me that Sir Lothar agreed with the numeric ID as long as the formatter URL would be changed to https://gamepressure.com/game.asp?ID=$1 Jean-Fred (talk) 11:33, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

  •   Comment I believe there is a plan to allow wikibases to directly query Wikidata properties in the near future, not quite sure how this relates, have you looked into this? ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:20, 13 April 2020 (UTC)
Not yet but I will now, thank you! Adam Harangozó (talk) 14:24, 14 April 2020 (UTC)
It came up in the recent Wikidata office hours on telegram, I'm not sure it's been documented elsewhere. Here's the relevant quote that I caught:

"We started working on Federated Properties: this MVP will make it possible to configure your new Wikibase to remotely access Wikidata’s properties to make local statements, instead of creating your own properties from scratch. Any updates the community makes to Wikidata properties will be reflected automatically in Wikibases with this feature enabled! As an MVP, this is a minimal version of what will eventually be a full-fledged feature We will use it to learn as much as we can about federation between wikibases, and between wikibases and Wikidata!"

ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:23, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

  •   Comment I inspected the page and it seems each article has its own integer ID: for example, Q3162563 has the ID 228 and can be accessed through this url: https://encyclopedie.picardie.fr/spip.php?page=article&id_article=228. It's probably more difficult to get (although it's referenced multiple times in the source page and we can document it), but it's probably more stable than the SEO-friendly piece of URL. --Deansfa (talk) 02:38, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

  Comment Shouldn't this be called "title ID" rather than "album ID" ? Moebeus (talk) 10:01, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

@Moebeus: Why? It's standard album ID. Eurohunter (talk) 15:23, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
@Eurohunter: It's a little confusing when it applies to both albums and singles ("titels" ?) as per you example, I think it would be helpful if the Identifier name reflects that it covers both? Apart from that, I'm in support of this. Moebeus (talk) 16:59, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
@Moebeus: Maybe it should have two id's for album and song ("title")? Eurohunter (talk) 16:05, 2 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Moebeus (talk) 16:59, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Oppose I would support this proposal if it were split into two separate properties, since that way it would be much easier to handle constraint violations and the values would be much shorter. Jc86035 (talk) 10:44, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support Jc86035 (talk) 14:08, 4 July 2020 (UTC)
  •   Strong oppose,
    • The site centralizes 6 different types of ID and they are not present in your proposal.
    • Depending on what you write above, the separation between "song" and "album" is unnecessary, as titles can be included in several types (pop, vinyl, etc.).
    • The IDs on the site are similar to the same form as IMDb: THE-TYPE-numeric_identifier.
    • The fields do not match each other in your proposal.
    • Rest assured: it would be interesting to have a property like this, but surely not from this proposal. Copy to rework. —Eihel (talk) 21:53, 23 August 2020 (UTC)

MotivationEdit

This new property will make it much easier to track items about Ukrainian natural objects in Wikidata, and so, it will be easier to update such items with valuable information, like images or sizes of area. Also, it is a valuable external identifier, as it links to an entry in a table of natural objects, which was provided by the government and published by the WLE-UA organizers, and which holds a lot of useful information.

DiscussionEdit

  • This is an identifiers invented by Wikimedians or based on something external? Multichill (talk) 10:48, 18 July 2020 (UTC)
    It is invented by wikimedians (first five digits are Classification of objects of the administrative-territorial system of Ukraine (Q1564708) code of administrative unit and last four are the sequence number), but there are no official government identifiers for natural objects, so this is the best we can have. Government keeps account of all natural objects in Ukraine, but they do not publish their lists anywhere. WLE organizers each year write a request to the Ministry of Environmental Protection for those lists, and after receiving them, publish them. Those lists have information about natural objects which is hard to find elsewhere, if possible at all. --Tohaomg (talk) 08:24, 19 July 2020 (UTC)
    @Tohaomg: When Wiki Loves Monuments was started, we allowed these kind of made up id's because we had no alternative. Now we have an alternative: Wikidata. Instead of introducing a new made up foreign key here, I would introduce the Wikidata qid in your dataset. That way you can link everything together. Take for example w:uk:Вікіпедія:Вікі любить Землю/Черкаська область. See for example w:nl:Lijst van rijksmonumenten in Vogelenzang how I added the wikidata item on the Dutch Wikipedia.

MotivationEdit

The SPLC is a non-profit organization that keeps track of hate groups and individual extremists. Labelling hate groups is often difficult in Wikidata and Wikipedia, an external identifier with extra information may often helpful as reference and for further information for users to educate themselves about a particular group. While these entries are up for debate, Wikipedia writes "Since the 2000s, the SPLC's classification and listings of hate groups (organizations it has assessed either "attack or malign an entire class of people, typically for their immutable characteristics")[10] and extremists[11] have often been described as authoritative and are widely accepted and cited in academic and media coverage of such groups and related issues". Also, currently these items have plenty of outlinks to Twitter/Facebook/Youtube but no real authority control. Hannes Röst (talk) 18:14, 1 August 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

Interesting, they claim to track 940 hate groups in 2019 but I guess not all of them have an entry? It seems some are just listed for example here but do not have their own identifier. I agree that 68 is not really enough to justify a new property. Best regards --Hannes Röst (talk) 17:21, 4 August 2020 (UTC)

  •   Strong oppose So your "attributes" are information about the use of the games. Linking items other than the games themselves seems like bad data linking. More concretely, to say that 3D Lemmings (Q615921) is playable on DOS (Q170434) is correct. But to say that DOS is identified through this site is not correct. Maybe you could see what you can do with "attributes" with P1933 for example. Cordially. —Eihel (talk) 18:05, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
    Not sure what you mean by “information about the use of the games”.
    To give some perspective, MobyGames classifies games along many dimensions, many of which under the MobyGames genre ID (P7326)) umbrella (genre but also interface type, pacing, perspective), some others under MobyGames group ID (P5360) (series, but also budget ranges or game engines), and finally some others as so-called “attributes” − this includes video modes, content ratings, operating system versions, input devices, CPUs, business models… Jean-Fred (talk) 19:28, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

Dictionary of Occupational Titles IDEdit

MotivationEdit

This source of occupational titles has terms that are not available in other vocabularies such as LCSH and LCDGT and will be a useful identifier to include in items when one is available. Today I created an item for "forest ecologist" and the only external identifier I was able to find for this was in this dictionary of occupational titles. UWashPrincipalCataloger (talk) 11:16, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

DiscussionEdit

  •   Comment Note the "codes" listed in the dictionary differ from these ID's (which seem to be based on the web page locations) - for example for Optometrist the code is actually '079.101-018'. ArthurPSmith (talk) 16:58, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I was thinking of proposing a separate property for the code, if you think that would be a useful additional property. Adam L. Schiff (talk) 17:23, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment Are these codes still authoritative in any way (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictionary_of_Occupational_Titles and is this the authorative website for this)? I am bit confused, in Wikipedia it says "The DOT was later rendered obsolete and was replaced by an online database which was based largely on voluntary input from occupation incumbents" -- is this the website we are looking at or an un-authorized reproduction? What about https://www.onetcenter.org/overview.html ? It does seem quite comprehensive so I am slightly in favor. Also, can we use the hierarchy in any way to map to the hierarchy we have here at WD? --Hannes Röst (talk) 21:31, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment The online site says "This is the complete Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT) revised fourth edition, as supplied electronically by the US Dept. of Labor, provided, as a public service, by ITA, makers of DOT and O*Net for Windows". Both the DOT and the ONET sources are used regularly by catalogers recording occupations in LC name authority records, so while the DOT is no longer published in print, the online site is consulted regularly to record occupations of persons in name authorities. If ONET online doesn't have its own external identifier property, I will propose that too, since catalogers use both sources for occupation terms, particularly when one is not available in LCSH or LCDGT. Adam L. Schiff (talk) 22:45, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment The U.S. Department of Labor also maintains an online version of the DOT, but in a form unsuitable for linking from Wikidata. The DOL site (https://www.dol.gov/agencies/oalj/topics/libraries/LIBDOT) says "So, why is the DOT still on the Office of Administrative Law Judges (OALJ) website? It is because the DOT is still used in Social Security disability adjudications and the OALJ copy of the DOT is often cited as an authoritative source of the DOT." So while DOT has been replaced by ONET as a source of occupational information, the DOT is still used by catalogers. Adam L. Schiff (talk) 22:54, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment looking at Wikidata property for occupations (Q24043375), I found no less than 13 identifiers for occupations, including country specific ones from France (2x), Canada, US, Germany, Spain, Dutch, Switzerland, Portugal, Denmark, Europe, and two international systems ISCO-88 occupation code (P952) and ISCO-08 occupation code (P8283). It seem like a lot of systems (however only 5 have more than 100 items). Have you looked at SOC Code (2010) (P919) and Standard Occupational Classification System (Q7598269) -- do we need two systems for the US or would one suffice? Will we need all three DOT, ONET and SOCS, are there any mapping tables? I am just trying to understand how to best approach this. --Hannes Röst (talk) 01:01, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I personally think that if there are identifiers for occupations from different sources/systems, that the number of them isn't really relevant. Wikidata ought to be able to link from an occupation item to any equivalent other code or vocabulary sources. Within the Library of Congress Name Authority File, there are only a few vocabularies for occupations that have been assigned codes that can be used in MARC authority records. That list is at https://www.loc.gov/standards/sourcelist/occupation.html. As you can see, DOT and ONET are among those that catalogers can use and specify where the occupation term comes from. In NACO, we only use English-language terms in authority records, so we would not have any use for lists of terms from Germany, Spain, etc. In LC/NACO authority records, we do not record codes for occupations, only terms, but we can link from a term to the URI for the term in a particular source vocabulary. I don't see that Wikidata should sanction or prefer one source of identifiers over any others. If there a different sources that define and provide a URI or code for "anesthesiologist", I say let them all be able to be recorded in Wikidata. --Adam L. Schiff (talk) 23:20, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support IMO Wikidata should and will end up being the mapping table between all of these. We should be the Rosetta stone of the internet, cataloging what every language, every site, and every catalog calls every (notable) entity. --99of9 (talk) 03:39, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support can you change the description to specify the version (4.0) of the codes? I think the code itself should also be recorded as has been suggested above. --Hannes Röst (talk) 15:34, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
  • Maybe it would be good to see how this is different from Wikidata:Property proposal/Dictionary of Occupational Titles Code (fourth edition, revised) by having (at least a few) samples for the same occupation.   Oppose having both. --- Jura 13:06, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

    • While it has few items, having the ability to look up the definition quickly is valuable. The fact that the items are on top of the ontology also means that they are likely to be seen much more often then a lot of other items. ChristianKl❫ 20:33, 22 December 2020 (UTC)
@ChristianKl: Yes, the ability to look up the definition is useful and it is possible to do that without creating a property. Not sure I properly understand your point about items on top of the ontology being seen more often but it does not seem to justify the creation of this property, especially as we already have a property to store exactly the same information and connect to these terms.
Also, can this proposal be placed alongside your other OBO property proposals so they can be discussed together? Succu has correctly noted that the prefix, in this instance BFO_, is part of the ID and this should not be overlooked. Although there are extant OBO ontology properties, e.g. Environment Ontology ID (P3859) and OBO Gazetteer ID (P6778), they are seldom utilised and I think it would be sensible to discuss the option of a single property (with the prefix included to identify the ontology) as an alternative to a property for each ontology. Or, if we can establish a consensus to (potentially) create properties for each ontology, I will withdraw my objections based on the number of terms. Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 08:29, 23 December 2020 (UTC)
@Sic19: There are entities that have identifiers in multiple OBO ontologies. That means giving our semantics around external identifiers, a property that takes all IDs wouldn't be an external ID. When a user looks at a property it's valuable when all the external identifiers are listed together and that doesn't happen with a string property.
I did switch the ID name to BFO_.
I have created a list for all OBO ontologies at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Bioinformatics/OBO_Foundary_Ontologies . Most of them don't have Wikidata properties at present. While I do believe that it would be benefitial to eventually have properties for all of them, I currently don't propose to add Wikidata properties without planned usages. The ontologies I did propose were ontologies that touch items with whom I worked. ChristianKl❫ 15:27, 23 December 2020 (UTC)
@ChristianKl: regarding identifiers in multiple ontologies, see the RDA value vocabularies ID proposal below, which implies it is possible to have an external identifier datatype property in this scenario. It also deals with the issue of some of the vocabularies being too small to require a specific property. Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 16:32, 23 December 2020 (UTC)

MotivationEdit

PeriodO is a public domain gazetteer of scholarly definitions of historical, art-historical, and archaeological periods. It eases the task of linking among datasets that define periods differently. It also helps scholars and students see where period definitions overlap or diverge. It is listed in the Library of Congress Subject Heading and Term Source Codes as an approved source terms used to describe the spatiotemporal subject content of a resource. PeriodO identifiers are instances of Archival Resource Key (Q2860403), so in addition to the formatter URL above, we propose to have an ARK formatter (P8054) property value of ark:/99152/p0$1.

  •   Comment @Rybesh: I think this is potentially useful and I have thought about creating this myself but then could not really figure out how to overcome some major issues with PeriodO. Have you seen the previous proposal and there were several issues raised by @PKM: and @Sic19: - how do envision to address these issues, it seems that there are many overlapping entries for periods which result in duplicated entries and overlapping time periods? Hopefully we can resolve these issues through a discussion. Best --Hannes Röst (talk) 15:44, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
@Hannes Röst: Thank you for the link to the previous proposal; I knew there had been one but couldn't find it. I will address the issues raised by @PKM: and @Sic19: below. Rybesh (talk) 19:13, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
@Mahir256: An Archival Resource Key (P8091) (ARK) is a type of identifier. PeriodO period IDs are ARKs, but not every ARK is a PeriodO period ID—ARKs are used as identifiers in many different systems (see The ARK Identifier Scheme). The formatter URL for PeriodO period IDs that I put in this proposal also includes the Name Assigning Authority Number (NAAN) (99152) and "shoulder" (/p0) identifying PeriodO as the organization that creates these particular ARKs; this is how PeriodO ARKs can be distinguished from ARKs created by other organizations. (See https://ezid.cdlib.org/id/ark:/99152/p0 and http://n2t.net/ark:/99152 for registration information about this NAAN and shoulder.) Finally, the N2T (Names to Things) resolver service allows turning ARKs into resolvable URLs by prepending http://n2t.net/ to them. Rybesh (talk) 19:13, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
@Rybesh: Thank you for the explanation. Apologies if I am overlooking something obvious here, why is a new property required when you could use Archival Resource Key (P8091) to add these identifiers to items? For example, Eoarchean (Q731470)ark:/99152/p09qtgwckcw would resolve using P8091. Is there community consensus to create more properties that use ARKs? Using something like content deliverer (P3274) as a qualifier to indicate the source on a P8091 claim could be an alternative. Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 20:03, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
@Sic19: That is a good suggestion, and if that approach is recommended as best practice at Wikidata, I'd be happy to recommend it to our partners who want to create statements using PeriodO IDs. However, it seems that the intended use of Archival Resource Key (P8091) (judging from the examples) is not for mapping between Wikidata entities and concepts in external systems, but rather for linking Wikidata entities representing specific objects to documents about or representing those objects elsewhere. Furthermore there are a number of other properties for external identifiers that are ARKs, e.g. Thésaurus de la désignation des objets mobiliers ID (P4979), Bibliothèque nationale de France ID (P268), BAnQ work ID (P1823), and Gallica ID (P4258). In fact, there is even an ARK formatter (P8054) property for use by such properties. The situation with ARKs seems analogous to the situation with URLs: it would be possible to eschew the creation of specialized properties for external identifiers entirely, and to simply use something like reference URL (P854) to point externally (at least for those external identifiers that are resolvable as URLs). But Wikidata does not do that, instead reserving the use of reference URL (P854) for referring to specific documents hosted elsewhere, much as Archival Resource Key (P8091) seems to be intended to be used to point to specific documents in repositories that use ARK identifiers. Rybesh (talk) 23:01, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
@Rybesh: Who are "our partners" that will be using the property to create statements? Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 14:43, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
@Sic19: Various libraries and scholarly linked data projects that are using PeriodO period IDs and also using Wikidata. Rybesh (talk) 21:56, 12 December 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment In the previous proposal @PKM: and @Sic19: raised issues about “duplicate” entries in PeriodO. However, while these entries may be similar, they are not duplicates from the perspective of the PeriodO project. The criteria for individuating periods in PeriodO are threefold: 1) temporal extent, 2) spatial extent, and 3) source. Hence there are many “Bronze Age” periods both because this period is understood as having different temporal extents at different places on Earth, and because even at the same spatial location, opinions about the temporal extent of a period may vary. So, this is not a matter of a lack of authority control, but rather authority control at a finer level of granularity: what PeriodO is identifying is periods as conceptualized by different people or organizations. Even if two sources agree on both the temporal extent and spatial extent of a period (as in the case of zj6g8ks9s Bronze Age and r8d9c53w3 Bronzealder), we still record them as separate records, because it is important to know when two different sources agree, as well as when they disagree. Note also that, so that we can trace the genealogy of period concepts, PeriodO records some periods as specifically derived from earlier-defined periods (as in the case of qhb66wrbs Bronze Age, which is derived from zj6g8ks9s Bronze Age).

    Given these conceptual differences between how PeriodO treats periods (as individual concepts originating from particular sources) and how Wikidata tends to treat periods (as broad consensus terms), @PKM: and @Sic19: are right to raise concerns about how the proposed property would be used in practice. However, I think that these concerns can be addressed by making clear how the property should be used. First, it should not be used on broad terms like “Bronze Age” that do not specify any particular spatial extent (and hence cannot really specify a temporal extent either, only a relative temporal position). This is why, in my examples, I only selected Wikidata entities that are located both in time and in space (in the case of geologic periods like Eoarchean, the spatial extent is “Earth”). Second, for Wikidata entities that are located both in time and in space, it should be possible for this property to have multiple values. This would be useful in that it would enable Wikidata users to see that there are differing views on the extent of the entity in question, and to get the details about these views from PeriodO if desired. To summarize, I don't think the different conceptual models of Wikidata and PeriodO should be disqualifying for this proposal; in fact this is an excellent case for the use of an external identifier property, as it allows bridging between different views of knowledge. If the conceptual models were identical, there would be no reason to maintain an external identifier, since it would be more efficient to simply move PeriodO into Wikidata en masse.

    Rybesh (talk) 19:13, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
@Rybesh: In the proposal, you state the property will be used for mix'n'match and above you have defined clear guidelines for the usage of the property. Do you think these guidelines will be followed consistently by editors using mix'n'match? Simon Cobb (User:Sic19 ; talk page) 14:43, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

  Support This will be a useful identifier to include in Wikidata items. I agree that multiple IDs should be acceptable in items when more granular PeriodO IDs cover a concept that is more broadly covered by a Wikidata item. UWashPrincipalCataloger (talk) 20:17, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

  Support I definitely support this and would use it. Just for my own clarity, how exactly would multiple IDs be used in WD? So if we took Roman Republic (Q17167), there are a few options in PeriodO to define the period of the Roman Republic. Would all of these IDs be used for Roman Republic (Q17167)? Would it be also permissible to create separate WD items for more specific definitions of the Roman Republic (for example, if say, a user wanted to associate GLAM objects with a particular geo-spatial and chronological moment)? I don't have a problem with any of these but am just curious about the intended implementationValeriummaximum (talk) 23:52, 2 March 2021 (UTC)

@ Valeriummaximum: Thank you for your support. What I suggested above was that for Wikidata entities that are located both in time and in space (like Roman Republic (Q17167)) it would be linked to multiple PeriodO IDs. But of course if it were considered useful for there to be a more specific definition of the period of the Roman Republic, distinct from Roman Republic (Q17167), that corresponded to a definition already in PeriodO, then that more specific entity would only be linked to a single PeriodO ID. If someone were to do the latter then obviously they would need to create fingerprint data suitable for disambiguating the more specific definition from the more general concept of the period. Rybesh (talk) 01:04, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

  Support This would be a good identifier to have available on WD. I have experience working with PeriodO ids and we include links to them on id.loc.gov at the Library of Congress. Thisismattmiller (talk) 14:13, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

MotivationEdit

National Information Standards Organization (Q1508447) are maintaining a number of information standards that are relevant in the United States as well as internationally. Wikidata has very patchy coverage in this area, so I thought proposing a dedicated property is a good way to get things started into a more systematic direction. However, I am not clear yet how best to handle

  • the modifiers like Z39.96-2019 or Z39.88-2004 [R2010], which refer to documents about the standards that essentially define a particular version (or even draft) of the standard
 => NISO Response: NISO standards follow the following designation strucutre: 
    <Z39.> indicates a US National standard published by NISO (Committee Z39) - 
    <XXX> the number of the standard, which is assigned sequentially as new standards are developed.  Not all standards are published and some standards are withdrawn.  Numbers are not reused.
    <(-YYYY)> indicates the year of approval and are therefore critical to understanding of which version is being referenced. If the qualifier is missing, the last version is understood to be the referent.  

A number of NISO standards have been withdrawn and therefore a no longer available.

  • consequently, the range of allowed values or the necessity for qualifiers
 => NISO Response: The year qualifier is critical.  The [R20XX] is the year of reaffirmation, which is not required.
  • the lack of landing pages for these standards on the NISO website, which seems document-centric rather than built around the standards, which means that formatted URLs like https://www.niso.org/explore/search?keys=Z39.96-2019 would mostly work in practice but not in a consistent fashion across the website
 => NISO Response: We have identified this problem and will work to correct it. Please do not link to the NISO Search Engine: The structure of the URLS should be " https://www.niso.org/publications/Z39_<STANDARD_NUMBER>_<APPROVAL_YEAR> " although we acknowledge that it will take some time to clean up this structure (as of 2/2/21).  All NISO Standards are also assigned DOIs, which are also available for linking.  We will be producing a canonical landing page with linked data information later this spring for each standard (as well as those that have been withdrawn).

DiscussionEdit

  • Question. Not sure quite how to phrase this, but does ANSI/NISO embellish or innovate conceptually at all, such that there might not be a one-to-one correspondence between the ANSI/NISO identifier and the item to which it corresponds? For example, the result you linked for digital object identifier (Q25670) suggests that ANSI/NISO simply creates a unique identifier that corresponds directly to the DOI standard. But ISO standards (as far as I know) are sui generis, so that the ISO standard for "Unique digital document identification" would include DOIs but doesn't correspond one-to-one with it. Where do ANSI/NISO identifiers fit in here? AleatoryPonderings (talk) 18:17, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support These are important standards, and deserve their own identifier. On AleatoryPonderings question, I believe Z39.84 is a formalization of the DOI standard as implemented by the organizations involved, so the identifier points to a document that specifies what a DOI is. ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:43, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
  => Some NISO standards are advanced as ISO standards.  These standards may change as part of the ISO standardization process and, if approved by ISO, receive their own ISO designation.  For example ANSI/NISO Z39.84 (now withdrawn by NISO) is currently published as ISO 26324:2012 Information and documentation — Digital object identifier system.

DiscussionEdit

  • I would initially support (yes, pandektis is a very useful database), but let's dig a little more on this: these are not really identifiers but essentially a vague url structure which mixes artists, works of art, and even more such as settlement name changes [3] No mention of any identifier in the page itself. Probably described at URL (P973) would be sufficient for any purpose. --Geraki (talk) 09:46, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
    @Geraki: I agree about the choice of having the same URL structure for all types of entities (persons, works of art, places etc.) being disappointing; however, considering that the URLs are stable (I've found no hint of the contrary), having a dedicated ID is still better as it allows checks on the status of our matches through constraint violations and queries. --Epìdosis 11:13, 31 January 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support I have checked. to me the urls seem stable. Also, converting a removed ID into a "described at url" if the url architecture is changed in an homogeneous way is not complicated. The web page are full of useful information for referencing statement.--Alexmar983 (talk) 13:15, 7 March 2021 (UTC)e

  •   Question Why did you insert "wd-" in the URL? I don't think we want tracking elements there. --- Jura 06:44, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
  • @Thierry Caro: as inserter - Coagulans (talk) 20:20, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
    • I believe wd is there precisely so that humans know that this is the tracking part. That people complain that they could be tracked using the URL with wd staying as such is actually a good thing. It is a sign that they have been made aware of the issue in the first place, something that a random string would not have highlighted. See an URL with wd stored on Wikidata? Change that part every time you click if you worry about privacy. Thierry Caro (talk) 07:57, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

HathiTrust Volume IdentifierEdit

   Under discussion
DescriptionVolume Identifier for HathiTrust

Alphanumeric ID from the HathiTrust Digital library, which is a large-scale collaborative repository of digital content from research libraries including content digitized via the Google Books project and Internet Archive digitization initiatives, as well as content digitized locally by libraries. For more information see w:HathiTrust.

Each item in the registry has an permanent Volume ID and a stable URL (see below), so it would be easy to link the item on Wikidata to the resource on HathiTrust.

HathiTrust ID (P1844) covers the HathiTrust record number, which represent a work's bibliographic data, and is not an immutable ID.

Because this represents a specific scan entity, as opposed to a bibliographic record, it more like the Hathi Trust counterpart to Internet Archive ID (P724)

  •   Comment this sounds useful, is there already a mapping available from Internet Archive ID (P724) to HathiTrust ID? Can you explain the difference to HathiTrust ID (P1844) - is this proposal here for a *specific* scan and HathiTrust ID (P1844) is for the work? So each HathiTrust ID (P1844) could have 0, one or more scan events each with its own "HathiTrust Volume Identifier"? An example would be 001730317 (War and Peace) where there is one book, but there are two different scan events (v2 and v3). Why do you say that HathiTrust ID (P1844) is not stable, that sounds concerning and a long-term issue? Assuming that the https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/001730317 is stable (which you say it is not), I would argue that we would not need to record the individual scans as we could just link to the record of the book and Wikidata would not have to keep track of all individual scan events. Best --Hannes Röst (talk) 18:36, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
    @Hannes Röst: I don't think there is a mapping from IA -> HT. Many IA works are scanned by IA themselves, and most Google scans come via Google books (with extra processing that sometimes trashes images, which usually means the HT scans are better quality). It's possible that sometimes an IA and HT record can be linked up via the OCLC number (and/or LCCN?).
    Hathi's documentation says about HathiTrust ID (P1844): "HathiTrust's record number for the associated bibliographic record: HathiTrust record numbers are not permanent and can change over time." I don't know how often that actually happens, though. I guess this is so they can split and merge bibliographic records as needed.
    Probably the biggest use of this as a separate property to HathiTrust ID (P1844) is for things like your example (a multi-volume work) and periodicals like The Electrical Engineer (Q105221968), which has https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/000554163, which contains links for each volume (collection of issues, in this case on a 6-monthly basis). So, not all Hathi Volume IDs under one Record ID point to scans of the same thing. In this case, there are also scan events that do refer to the same thing, scanned multiple times (e.g. 1, 2 and 3). Files uploaded at Commons from Hathi will use the volume ID (often with Commons:Template:HathiTrust, often not), not the record ID, since the document is obviously tied to the specific scan event.
    See also Wikidata_talk:WikiProject_Periodicals#Properties_for_periodicals_tiers:_work/series/volume/issue/article, where I am trying to figure out how to represent a multi-tier work hierarchy with a view to using it to drive Wikisource pages. Our scans at WS are obviously generally (sometimes they're composited) tied to a single HT or IA (or whatever) scan.

  • MotivationEdit

    Baidu Baike is the de facto version of Wikipedia in Chinese—it has 16x as many entries as Chinese Wikipedia. It's also heavily censored and has myriad neutrality/copyright/etc. issues, factors which have led previous proposals to add a property for it to fail. However, I do not think adding a property ID for an entity does or should carry any sort of implied endorsement, and like it or not, Baidu Baike is probably the best source of encyclopedic information for non-controversial Chinese topics that might be too obscure to have much or any coverage on Wikipedia. Documenting Baidu Baike IDs could presumably have applications for censorship researchers or for identifying areas of expansion for Wikipedia related to Chinese topics. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 19:05, 8 February 2021 (UTC)

      1. Content is not free - more than 90% of Wikidata property links to non-free content
      2. Advertisement and paid editing - most open wikis does not care it. Wikimedia seems a very special case that treats paid editing seriously
      3. Copyvio - Also, Wikimedia treats copyvio much stricter than other open wikis

    •   Support there is value in these links even if the site is "bad". I wouldn't support linking to something like conservapedia but if this is the primary chinese language encyclopedia then we really should link to this. We do not restrict ourselves to linking only to "free" sources elsewhere (e.g. IMDB) so I don't buy that argument (also applies to paid editing). BrokenSegue (talk) 20:36, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Support   Oppose Same great reasoning as User:BrokenSegue, but I recognize the copyright issues User:Sanmosa brings up. I don't think we should ever platform a service that goes against something we defend. If Baidu Baike ever expanded to the west and added translations for their articles, this would be completely unacceptable with their copyright violations. --Lectrician1 (talk) 21:40, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
      @Lectrician1: This really goes to the heart of a central question about Wikidata's identity: Are we trying to be a comprehensive, neutral knowledge base of the world's information, or are we just an arm of the WMF that supports Wikipedia and restricts information that doesn't align with Wikipedia's values? I think we would err badly to adopt the oppose view, since our credibility comes precisely from the fact that we are neutral, and requiring entities to share our values before documenting them would create the impression that we are endorsing every entity we document and open up a can of worms about what qualifies. We don't want to go down that path. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 04:05, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      But we are going down that path. I don't know many other Wikimedia projects that face the "platforming" issue we have right here. Projects expect sources that are reliable, but being reliable means that the source isn't political. Here we have to be political. I believe that the platforming of false knowledge is wrong. Baidu Baike might not be false knowledge like Conservapedia, but if you're not willing to respect other members of society's rights to intellectual property through copyright, then you're technically suppressing the future potential of shared knowledge (because nobody will want to share anymore). That's a direct conflict with our movement.
      I also think that there exists no "neutral". Everything and everyone must be political with bias in order to remain logically consistent. Here, we need to remain consistent with our values and consider the direct factors of "platforming" this entity. It might seem that we're increasing shared knowledge, when in reality we are not. I also think my "if Baidu came to the West" example situation is very valid too.

    •   Comment Frequent poor disambiguation and duplicate articles. Might cause data quality issues. --Artoria2e5 (talk) 23:41, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
      • Data quality issues are common problems for most user-generated sites, not only this one.--GZWDer (talk) 16:31, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Oppose. Adding Baidu Baike links? Never, never, never. Having the same opinions as GZWDer and Artoria2e5, besides, Baidu Baike is nothing but mostly a copycat of Chinese Wikipedia with serious copyright violations. Sæn 23:47, 16 February 2021 (UTC)
      I see that you are active on Chinese Wikipedia. There are certainly issues with Baidu Baike copying, but I fail to see how it could be "mostly a copycat" if it has 16x as many entries as the thing it's allegedly copied from. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 04:05, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      Baidu baike contains many articles copied from other website than Wikipedia and other encyclopedias. Yeah it seems a common problem for user-generated sites.--GZWDer (talk) 16:32, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Oppose. Baidu Baike have a terrible copyvio problem same as last time. I don't think it's a good idea to add a Baidu Baike Property.--LaMagiaaa (talk) 04:41, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      @LaMagiaaa: Could you clarify what relevance you think them having a copyvio problem has to where or not there should be a property documenting them? As Shangkuanlc pointed out last time, mapping the issue will likely make them easier to resolve. {{u|Sdkb}}talk 05:15, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      Chinese Wikipedia has compiled an incomplete list. Some content may come entirely from Wikipedia without the correct representation of the copyright agreement. And I don't think a website that infringes copyright should be added. Of course, they may have some original articles, but the average editor cannot distinguish them. So I don't think it is necessary to describe specific articles. The average editor may not be able to distinguish if Baidu Baike added to the property.--LaMagiaaa (talk) 05:29, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      "terrible copyvio problem" - it is not only the case of Baidu Baike. It really seems most user-generated sites in the Internet have very low control of copyright violation.--GZWDer (talk) 16:28, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Oppose: Baidu Baike not only has copyright problems, but is also a place for poor and low-quality articles. Many articles contain false information so it fails "probably the best source of encyclopedic information" in the "#Motivation" above. Plus, if the copyright problem is not serious, there wouldn't be a page emphasizing that. Sun8908 💬 07:12, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
      Wikidata does not require any reliability of linked pages. Fandom (Q17459) is also abundant of poor and low-quality articles.--GZWDer (talk) 16:28, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Neutral: I don't think copyright problems can be a barrier stopping Baidu Baike getting its property on Wikidata. But as Artoria2e5 said above, poor disambiguation and duplicate articles of Baidu Baike may create chaos on Wikidata. --Steven Sun (talk) 13:01, 17 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Oppose, per Sun8908--Shizhao (talk) 02:41, 18 February 2021 (UTC)
      • Please note that contents of Wikipedia is duplicated in countless place, even only counting ones without attribuation.--GZWDer (talk) 16:29, 20 February 2021 (UTC)
    •   Support:Previously I did not recommend due to the quality of resources. But I change my mind after look at those facebook ID, youtube ID, twitter ID, which may also full of "good" or "bad" element like advertisement or unreliable information. Anyhow, Wikidata is just a place to collect those ID and provide links, no matter what content in those websites, so I feel OK to let Baidu Baike ID be here. It doesn't means the content of Baidu Baike will be flooding Chinese Wikipedia without restriction. --白布飘扬 (talk) 18:29, 23 February 2021 (UTC)

    The ids come from the same place, so why not the same ids. Putting a more precise RegEx also prevents putting bad ids (as vandals like to do for example). 1 property, then 2, but not 3 ?! But this is not a blocking criterion for a creation. —Eihel (talk) 03:24, 17 February 2021 (UTC)

Well, the URL apparently has some sets of defined pattern but I didn't have enough samples to rule out more than the "00" and "t", like the 18th character apparently can only be filled by 5 or 6 characters, so it's not exactly any character.

Is the remainder of the URL you link to significant (otherwise you should just use the proposed formatter URL with these ID's). ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:07, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

    MotivationEdit

    There is currently no way to record an identifier for the combination of a MeSH main heading and qualifier. Qualifiers are used to further refine the subject described by a MeSH descriptor or concept, and there are numerous Wikidata items for concepts represented by the combination of a MeSH main heading and qualifier. MeSH RDF is available for these pre-coordinated combinations, and it would be useful to have a property that can link to the MeSH RDF for these concepts. UWashPrincipalCataloger (talk) 21:56, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

    The regex that I included, D[0-9]{6,9}Q[0-9]{6}, works fine, but if there is a way to specify that the number of digits after the D is either 6 or 9 characters in length, rather than between 6 and 9, that would be an improvement. When I changed the regex to D[0-9]{6|9}Q[0-9]{6} everything after the 6 disappeared from the allowed values. UWashPrincipalCataloger (talk) 22:23, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

    Expected completenessalways incomplete (Q21873886)
    Applicable "stated in"-valueGB1900 dataset (Q105554422)

    Source informationEdit

    The GB1900 project (Q105554350) was a mass-participation community transcription project that between September 2016 and January 2018 transcribed every text string that appears on the 6-inches-to-the-mile (ie 1:10560) series of maps made by the Ordnance Survey (Q548721) between 1888 and 1913. Every string was attached to a geo-coordinate, corresponding to the bottom-left of the first letter of its first word. (See [5] for more information).

    The output of the project is available from https://www.visionofbritain.org.uk/data/#tabgb1900 in three forms:

    • Full final raw dump (CC0) -- 2666342 location rows, 8043679 transcription rows
    • Complete gazetteer (CC-BY-SA) -- 2552460 location + transcription rows
    • Abridged gazetteer (CC-BY-SA) -- 1174450 location + transcription rows

    Note that the files are in 16-bit unicode, so to use 'grep' on eg a standard cygwin install something may be needed like

    grep -Pa `echo -n "58e7cb752c66dcf8fa0b4ada" | iconv -f utf-8 -t utf-16le | hexdump -e '/1 "x%02x"' | sed 's/x/\\\\x/g'` gb1900_transcriptions.csv

    Also be aware that the coordinates in the 'locations' file in the raw dump are stored as hexadecimal strings in Well Known Binary (WKB) format -- see Simple Features (Q365034) (Thanks to Nikki on the wikimaps telegram group for identifying this format for me, with Stefano not far behind).

    The "complete gazetteer" includes reconciliation of about 1.5% of the original transcriptions, where these were in disagreement; and also added (modern) parish and (modern) local authority fields. The "abridged gazetteer" excludes a large numbers of frequently repeating labels, such as "F.P." for footpath, but "still contains many transcriptions which are not necessarily place-names".

    MotivationEdit

    The GB1900 ID would be a slightly unusual external-id for wikidata for several reasons:

    1. there is at the moment no site that accepts the IDs as part of a url, so no url-formatter is possible. (In the above I have linked directly to the coordinates given in the data files).
    2. the coordinates do not quite represent the coordinates of the actual object, but instead that of the start of its label
    3. the files come with no information as to what sort of thing the coordinates are for.

    (This last is slightly surprising, because given the location and the character-string for each label, it might be not be thought too difficult a machine-learning proposition to identify the font-size and style the label was in, and at least extract that. But it seems this has not been done, or not been possible. On the first point, paper [6] (2019) describes a site that will accept the identifiers, including a pre-beta screenshot (figure 7). This is still intended, according to the Vision of Britain team, however as of 2021 it has not yet been possible to put that part of the site into production availability, "but the tech people are making progress".)

    Nevertheless in my view this would be a useful dataset to be able to match into, for at least two reasons. In particular it may have been used in various external geotagging projects to eg provide ready coordinates for places ending in the word 'Castle' or some such similar word. Also such matching would provide useful sanity-checking for our own coordinates, even though it should be kept in mind that GB1900 coordinates do not exactly represent the location of the underlying place.

    Proposed Use-styleEdit

    I would propose to add the property, for items that can be matched into the dataset, with qualifiers named as (P1810) to give the GB1900 preferred name for the place, and coordinate location (P625) to give the GB1900 coordinates for the place, if the name and coordinates can be found in the CC0 "raw dump" files.

    I would not propose that coordinates from GB1900 be used in a main coordinate location (P625) statement, as in general they will not (quite) match the location of the actual place. Therefore IMO it is better to give them as a P625 qualifier. This is also will also prove a convenient place to see the places on the underlying OS 1900 maps, which are available on the National Library of Scotland website, via geohack.

    Despite the complications, I do think this will be a useful property to have, and a useful dataset to be able to reference into. Jheald (talk) 19:31, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

    Good suggestion. But we can probably get quite a long way matching smaller-scale items to GB1900 hits -- eg listed buildings, scheduled monuments, heritage sites, etc -- even without any 'type' information, given the rough coordinates and that the names will be reasonably unique. It may become a bit trickier for items on the scale of villages and towns, to be sure that we're distinguishing which GB1900 label corresponds to the settlement, to the parish, to the constituency etc. But my feeling would be to start matching what we can, and then talk to the NLS, once we already have some matches to show for ourselves.
