- Support We have other knot invariants, we should have this one also. ArthurPSmith (talk) 20:54, 13 July 2022 (UTC)
- Note: I've tightened the domain for this property proposal to knot (Q1188853), rather than just 'item'. This shouldn't affect the rest of the proposal. The Anome (talk) 11:56, 23 July 2022 (UTC)
