  • I also plan to propose lezwatchtv later, since this is used on french wikipedia, and provides similar informations (and shows and actors as well, so likely 3 properties) --Misc (talk) 08:35, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Support Why are you only planning to use 25% of the database? Trade (talk) 21:42, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
    • That's a estimation, I took something like 5 or 6 rows from LGBTFD database, and counted how much items did already exist on wikidata, and found 1 out of 4. While I could create each missing character item for all the shows, I kinda feel that also mean I would need to watch lots of shows to enter the cis-straight characters who are not in the LGBTFD db, out of completness, and that's a lot of work. So I will just take the existing ones (for now), estimated at 25% of the db.--Misc (talk) 23:25, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
  • @Misc: please don't mark profile as ready when they aren't (this isn't open for 6 days). To me it also feels like the current name of the profile is too long. Can we find a shorter name? ChristianKl❫ 11:43, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
    • Oups, sorry, I forgot the part where I had to wait. For a shorter property name, I guess I can use db rather than database, for a start. For the rest, that's the name of the page, and there is no common abbreviation used on the website. "Character entry on LGBTFansDB DB" seems weird, would "Character entry on LGBTFansDB database", or remove "character", so "Entry on LGBTFansDB database" ? Misc (talk) 14:12, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
      • I switched the label to 'LGBTFansDB character ID'. It seems to me more concise and formatted like labels of other external-id properties. I would still appreciate a description text that tells someone who might not have heared about the website before what the database is about. ChristianKl❫ 18:37, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
