< Wikidata:Property proposal

See alsoEdit

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.

quotation or excerptEdit

   Ready Create
Descriptionquotation or excerpt from this work
Data typeMonolingual text
Domaincreative work (Q17537576)
Example 1I've Been to the Mountaintop (Q5967210) → [the four quotes used in the English Wikipedia article, split roughly every 400 characters]
Example 2[virtually any page in q:Category:Productions]
Example 3MISSING


We have first line (P1922) and last line (P3132), but it's not possible to add quotes for anything else (in particular things that are only one line long). Qualifiers like page(s) (P304) and time index (P4895) would probably be used for indicating the point within the work that the quotation begins. In addition to use for statements, this would be useful as a qualifier for statements relating between works, like work sampled (P5707). Jc86035 (talk) 17:47, 12 November 2018 (UTC)


  •   Support David (talk) 06:41, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment It seems to me like this might be better handled by using/creating a Wikiquote entry for the quote you want, then linking to that item. ArthurPSmith (talk) 21:22, 13 November 2018 (UTC)
    @ArthurPSmith: Quotes on Wikiquote don't get their own pages, as far as I'm aware – they're usually associated with the person or work that originated them. Jc86035 (talk) 15:59, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Have you thought about the copyright implications? How do you plan to prevent such problems from arising? ChristianKl❫ 14:41, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
    @ChristianKl: The 400-character limit for strings should suffice for now; perhaps a complex constraint would be required for items with more than about 4 statements for this property, and statements with more than one qualifier for this property. If it's fine for Wikisource to host massive amounts of copyrighted quotes from TV shows and the like, the implication is that there's nothing wrong with the same thing being done here (and CC-0 probably wouldn't make a difference to that here). Jc86035 (talk) 15:29, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
    It is fine for Wikiquote only because that project allows non-free content that is used under fair use (see here, though that is not official policy). I do not believe Wikidata is ready to do so itself. Having said that, I am still supporting this proposal below, as I don't believe the fact that someone could use a given field to add copyrighted information is a reason not to have the property at all. There are plenty of valid use cases for public domain works, so I think the solution should be policing Wikidata's content for policy violations, not preventing this property. Also, I would note the existence of quote (P1683), which already allows quotations on Wikidata (but that property is specifically for use in references). Dominic (talk) 16:04, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support, though I think this raises other issues. How should we distinguish between a true excerpt and when a full work is short enough to be included in its entirety (e.g. a short poem, short speech, etc.). These are conceptually different, and we would not want to misrepresent a full work as incomplete. For example, I just checked and the entire Gettysburg Address can fit in a single statement (the character limit is now 1500, not 400). And I would note that we already have an inscription (P1684) property, which is essentially a full-text quotation of a very specific type of work. I also think enabling quotations from works implies we should have an equivalent, but separate, property for adding quotations of people or things, since the data is usually given in that context as well. I think there should be three separate properties in total: "excerpt (of work)," "quotation (of person)," "full text/transcript". Dominic (talk) 16:04, 29 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Including a short poem in its entirety will violate copyright. You can't simply copy a poem just because it's short without violating existing copyright. ChristianKl❫ 17:46, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
    @ChristianKl: We already have P5482 (P5482), which could easily be used to violate copyright laws. That it would be possible doesn't mean the solution is to not have the property. Jc86035 (talk) 19:44, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
    Christian, that is not how copyright works. Some poems are copyrighted and some are out of copyright, such as being public domain due to age. Dominic (talk) 15:19, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Oppose. This should wait for structured Wikiquote. --Yair rand (talk) 19:53, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
    @Yair rand: Why? Lexemes didn't wait for structured Wiktionary. A structured Wikiquote would, in any case, probably require much more software development for Wikiquote than for Wikidata, seeing as all that's required on the Wikidata end is one property and imports, and we could make the property now; whereas structured Wikiquote would require a lot of interface changes to avoid massively disrupting Wikiquote contributors' workflows. Jc86035 (talk) 14:23, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support the "structured Wikiquote" which Yair rand mentioned is α. irrelevant; β. unlikely to be happened due to Meta-Wiki technical concerns; and γ. no logical conflictions to any property bases. --Liuxinyu970226 (talk) 22:20, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

Task T222515 we have already connected some swedish properties related to music/theater/movie

Swedish Royal Theater Archive will be another step in introducing linked data for museums/theaters related to music and theater. In the long run I hope they will be candidates for implementing their own instances of Wikibase - Salgo60 (talk) 18:55, 4 May 2019 (UTC)


  •   Support can be useful to see which fictional characters are played and which theater plays are set up over time (also between theaters / countries). VisbyStar (talk) 06:10, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support David (talk) 06:13, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment This is great however I think the second example should be invalid. ?category=roles&query=Bettsy+Trotwood is clearly no identifier, nor does its result represent the same thing as the Wikidata item. Abbe98 (talk) 08:30, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Abbe98: agree. I dont see that Dramaten gives us a query a problem (if it is stable) more who should have what data. I think we need to start having a dialogue inside Wikidata and with external parties like Dramaten
  • Should wikidata has everything? - my answer No
  • Should Wikidata has the persons and major plays and we tell the domain experts to join our echo system setting up a Wikibase (Q16354758) - see my presentation last week(GITHUB) were I hope this is the way forward but today I feel its not realistic as its a mismatch between complexity of the concept/Wikibase product maturity/#LOD skills at domain experts
- Salgo60 (talk) 09:48, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Salgo60: your comment is not related to my concern. The identifiers look fine to me but the query is defiantly not stable and will break sooner or later. It would in almost all cases just be the Wikidata label URL encoded, if applications would like to create such links they could do it on the fly. Linking to unstable query links is the opposite of Linked Open Data. Abbe98 (talk) 12:07, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Abbe98: Looks like Betsey Trotwood (Q3639127)?roleName=Bettsy+Trotwood will work as long as two plays dont have identical names :-) Would be better if we asked them to convert Strings to Things as they have for actors in a play. I guess step one is adding actors and plays so this will be next phase - Salgo60 (talk) 12:48, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment Plays in Rollboken are theatre productions, not plays/scripts. I.e. there are three David Copperfields (1941, 1948 & 1953) with their own IDs (see, none of which are identical to (David Copperfield the literary work) Ambrosiani (talk) 15:54, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
    • @Ambrosiani: Yes and I think they should maybe be in a local en:Wikibase installation at Musikverket?!?!? I guess when connecting a general knowledge graph as Wikidata with a specialist "domain" we have to define "responsibilities" who is caring about what. A good pattern would be if we could get Musikverket to define User stories so that we better understand what added value Wikidata can add. I recommend the Future learn training about how to work together in Open networks link - Salgo60 (talk) 17:43, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
      • Sure, but until then I think it's only the /Person/ID endpoint that can be used by wikidata items. Ambrosiani (talk) 08:43, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

The second example is gonna break when they revamp their search engine. We can save external ID's but saving search queries is too fragile. --Ysangkok (talk) 22:32, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

A very comprehensive and detailed database that described the use of firearms in works of fiction.

I might be wrong but this might be our first property related to firearms. Once we are done, we can make properties for actors, firearms and manufactors as well.

Another thing to note, animated televisions shows (that doesn't include anime) are usually banned unless the firearms are clearly identifiable.

  •   Question Isn’t there is a confusion between the person who signed the imprimatur here and the organisation he or her belongs to that make this person in position to authorize ? Also, in the current proposal there is no discussion on how to link the work with the place in which it is authorized (I guess an imprimatur in France was not automatically valid in England, for example). Is it assumed this is an imprimatur for an edition of a work ? author  TomT0m / talk page 13:57, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
    • "object has role"-qualifier can be used to specify the position of the person. The property should be used as in the samples given above. --- Jura 15:47, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
      • In any case, it seems that, according to enwiki : « The imprimatur granted for a publication is not valid for later editions of the same work or for translations into another language. For these, new imprimaturs are required.[8] ». So should it be assumed that the « imprimatur » property means by default « person who signed the imprimatur of the first edition » ? Maybe « imprimatur signed by » as a name ? applies to jurisdiction (P1001) should also be allowed as a qualifier). author  TomT0m / talk page 16:21, 10 July 2019 (UTC)
        • I don't see an ambiguity in the way the sample uses the property. If someone attempts to use it the wrong way round, the description and constraints should take care of it. --- Jura 06:40, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
          • It’s not really to resolve an ambiguity, it’s to be consistent with the definition of an imprimatur : an authorisation. Compare to a licence for example. If we name a property « licence », the object would not really be the person who signed but the kind of licence. author  TomT0m / talk page 07:44, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
            • Maybe. OTH, we don't use "signatory signed by" either. --- Jura 07:50, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
              • In my model below, « signatory » would be « decider » actually. So indeed this does not make any sense. It’s not supposed to. author  TomT0m / talk page 10:03, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment just for the exercise, I wondered how we could model the rejection of an imprimatur. A solution could be a slighly different model : considering the act of authorisation (or a document symbolising this, like a contract) is the real object of the « imprimimatur » statements. Then unknown value Help (or a concrete item) could mean « the authorisation is granted », no value Help could mean « the authorisation has been rejected, and to express the person in charge of taking the decision claims could be qualified by something as « decider ». An example with « no value » would be
    < Mercier’s cardinal pastoral letter > imprimatur search no value Help
    decider search < Alberto Leipidi >
    [1]. The first example would become, in this model,
    < Catholic Encyclopedia (Q302556) > imprimatur search unknown value Help
    decider search < John Murphy Farley (Q547365) >
    (some value because we don’t have an item for the actual imprimatur document, and we don’t need to, but it exists). The usefulness would be that if an imprimatur was actually rejected for a publication, « decider » could still be used as a qualifier to express who exactly rejected. author  TomT0m / talk page 16:53, 10 July 2019 (UTC) (EDITED)
    • If there is no valid sample, it's hard to discuss and probably not even in scope of . If it's rare, we probably don't want to create a property around it. --- Jura 10:15, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
      • Well, if the imprimatur was systematically granted at times it’s of really limited interest. There is probably more value to know stuff which was not authorized for printing and why than the opposite. Otherwise. author  TomT0m / talk page 11:19, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
        • There are many statements on items for printed works, some more interesting than others. --- Jura 18:12, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment I have a concern about this itenm from a different perspective. imprimatur (Q955005) is a <subclass of> "consent" - it is the statement or declaration itself, not the person or organization issuing the statement. The label ought to be something like "imprimitur granted by". - PKM (talk) 19:13, 12 July 2019 (UTC)
    • imprimatur (Q955005) is somewhat suboptimal. Anyways, this should be a property, not an item. I suppose we will see if the label is problematic or not. --- Jura 21:01, 12 July 2019 (UTC)

  • Well, I opened one of the links, and after about 20 seconds of loading the site asked me for signing in. Everybody sees same or does it depend on country you are based in? --Wolverène (talk) 17:15, 6 July 2019 (UTC)
Same for me, and by the screenshoot on the main page (section "rich data"), I assumed login is required to browse data. And its Wikipedia article says that it "recommends movies for its users to watch, based on their film preferences using collaborative filtering of members' movie ratings and movie reviews" .Esteban16 (talk) 21:18, 6 July 2019 (UTC)

This proposal is a group proposal. The first proposal is for a pair of properties, similarly to start time (P580)  /end time (P582)  , and the second is the analog of valid in period (P1264)   for an item value instead of the pair of properties if relevant.

covered period (start)Edit

Example 3The Clothing of the Common Sort, 1570-1700 (Q61438444) -> covered period (start) -> 1570

covered period (end)Edit

Example 3The Clothing of the Common Sort, 1570-1700 (Q61438444) -> covered period (end) -> 1700

Second proposition :

covered periodEdit

   Under discussion
Descriptionperiod covered
Data typeItem
Domainsame as above
Allowed valueshistorical period (Q11514315)(or anything with a begin and an end date / inception …)
Example 1
Example 2Auschwitz Album (Q667830) -> Auschwitz concentration camp (Q7341)
Example 3


Currently for this purpose start time (P580)   and end time (P582)   are used. This is incorrect as the english description of both implies that they can be used to express the date an item, like a collection, begins to exists. Clearly the date here is not the date the collection begins to exists but the date of the items that it collects begins to exists themselves, so this is not a good use. We need new properties to correct this bad and conflicting use. author  TomT0m / talk page 14:42, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

  • @Jura1: Can you be more specific ? Is this the « Auswitch » example you have a problem with ? This is meant to refer to the historical period of the concentration camp, and there is indeed begin date and end date about this period in the item, as qualifiers of the instance of (P31) statement. This could do the trick if we consider the « historical period » aspect of items values of this property. But maybe you would expect plain statements such as start time (P580)   / end time (P582)   or inception (P571) / dissolved, abolished or demolished (P576) on the items as a definition of the « historical period » associated to an item ? Or would you more expect only instances of
    subject > instance of (P31)   < historical period >
    as authorized values for those kind of statements ? author  TomT0m / talk page 10:00, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
  • There doesn't seem to be an end date. It's not even clear it's a time period. I'm sure you can come up with samples that match your definition. Looks like we lack three samples for the first two as well. In that case, this isn't actually ready either. A link to external website doesn't work for samples. --- Jura 10:33, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

  Notified participants of WikiProject Pokémon WD:PKMN seems dead so I make this proposal here, without a earlier discussion. Some Pokémon species change, they evolve and since 2nd generation they can also recess by making an egg and sometimes the original Pokémon must own an item. There are also many ways to evolve a Pokémon: some by level, some by giving a stone, some in a particular (and unmappable singularly) way (e.g. by level and turning 3DS upside down, under the rain or when another Pokémon reach a level, there is room in the team and you have a Pokéball in the bag). This kind of information is important and must be mapped in Wikidata but as long as it need some subproperties to define the way to evolve, I think this needs a standalone property. The name of the property is temporary so if needed, change it. I'm going to show you how to map items: the property will be useful for both evolution and "deevolution" (I don't think there is a specific term for that kind of operation). The property must have one of these as statement, for each way of (de)evolving:

  • leveling up
  • leveling up with high level of friendship
  • leveling up while holding an item
  • leveling up while knowing a certain move
  • leveling up in a certain location
  • leveling up during a certain time of day
  • leveling up while holding an item during a certain time of day
  • leveling up while is a certain gender
  • leveling up in a certain game
  • leveling up with a certain Pokémon or Pokémon of a certain type in the party
  • leveling up while the Nintendo 3DS is upside-down
  • leveling up a Pokémon during certain types of weather.
  • trading the Pokémon
  • trading the Pokémon while holding an item
  • trading the Pokémon for specific Pokémon
  • using an evolutionary stone on it
  • by a particular method
  • breeding
  • breeding while holding an item

Items must be created yet. Then:

  • In case of leveling up, it needs numeric value (P1181) to define which is the lower level in order to trigger evolution
  • In case of item to be held, I honestly don't know if applies to part (P518) or item operated (P121) should work
  • In case of move/type of move to be known, the time of day, the gender, the game, the Pokémon/Pokémon type, the weather, the specific Pokémon to be traded and the evolutionary stone to be used, the property applies to part (P518) should work well.

Every statement should have also direction (P560) in order to define which Pokémon you get after the (de)evolution.

I think I wrote everything. During next week I will create items about evolution, if a sort of consensus is found --★ → Airon 90 09:24, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

  • How do you handle the fact that different Pokemon editions have different rules? ChristianKl❫ 13:30, 31 December 2018 (UTC)


This property could be used also to map mega evolution (Q16577590), as example 7, but I don't know how to link back, as I don't think it is possible to use the same property again. --★ → Airon 90 09:32, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

  •   Comment I know we have lots of Pokemon items, but this seems awfully specific for a property. Could you perhaps use instead followed by (P156) or a similar property, with appropriate qualifiers? ArthurPSmith (talk) 18:01, 4 October 2018 (UTC)
I already considered this option but don't think it is useful, because it would need a qualifier for the qualifier and as of now, Wikidata doesn't have such option: indeed, if I use followed by (P156) then I need a qualifier to define how the item (de)evolves into that specified Pokémon and then I need a qualifier for the qualifier to clarify level/item/Pokémon/...
See examples in order to understand how many data would this operation needs.
Other way to mapping these data are obviously welcome! --★ → Airon 90 06:48, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
EDIT: IMHO, I also think that it doesn't have any sense to partially map the way of evolution. It is useless to just know that certain Pokémon evolve leveling it up or trading it with another Pokémon withour specifying the level which it evolve since or the Pokémon needed to be traded to trigger evolution. I think that either we allow mapping all data properly or it is useless partial work and it would be then better not to map at all these data :) --★ → Airon 90 06:53, 7 October 2018 (UTC)
  • How do you handle the fact that different Pokemon editions have different rules? ChristianKl❫ 13:30, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@ChristianKl: Yes, just give correct priority to statements and applies to part (P518) will do the job ;) --★ → Airon 90 07:14, 8 April 2019 (UTC)
  • @Airon90, ChristianKl, ArthurPSmith, ديفيد عادل وهبة خليل 2:   Not done, because lacks of consensus for up to 3 months. Regards, ZI Jony (Talk) 16:42, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
    • @ZI Jony: Sorry, where is the «lack of consensus»? --★ → Airon 90 07:10, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Given that nobody voted against this propsal, I don't feel the need to close it and reopened it. Plenty of proposals are open for more then 3 months. ChristianKl❫ 07:24, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Weak oppose I'm not sure Wikidata is the place to get so specific on the mechanics of one specific game. It's Pokemon now, and what other game will come later? NMaia (talk) 06:31, 18 July 2019 (UTC)
@NMaia: That info is mapped in many infoboxes, so I think it is somehow useful to Wikipedia, otherwise this info would not be inserted there. If info about other games should be added then we decide what to do later. If you think that this info could be mapped in another way I am open to listen to your proposal ;) --★ → Airon 90 07:29, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

  •   Comment   Support Here's an link to the withdrawn previous proposal. I'll love to see this property but i can't support it when it's using the generated URL rather than the far more stable more stable numerical ID. Cwf97, have you read the previous proposal? --Trade (talk) 23:25, 16 July 2019 (UTC)
    • Yes, I have.
