  •   Question @Pigsonthewing: It looks like there are a whole lot of these, all with a similar URL structure. Perhaps we should use the entire string "subjectcode/01001000", which would allow any of the lists of codes to be imported into the same property. --99of9 (talk) 06:05, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
  • @Pigsonthewing: any thoughts about the comment above? − Pintoch (talk) 10:47, 8 June 2018 (UTC)

  •   Support @Pigsonthewing: Yes, They have several "Descriptive NewsCodes" and the Formatter URL hint can just be to prefix with the /<DescriptiveGroup>/$1 /productgenre/entertainment /mediatopic/20000002 both would map to our Q173799. /worldregion/r001 maps to our Q16502. And I would probably rename the property proposed to be "IPTC Newscode" since that is the actual name of the controlled vocabulary that offers many "sets" of Newscodes that we are trying to map Thadguidry (talk) 16:28, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Oppose in the current form, but   Support as "IPTC NewsCode" with values such as subjectcode/01001000 -- JakobVoss (talk) 20:59, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Comment I agree with JakobVoss here - we won't want to be adding 100+ identifiers like this, but with this adjustment to the proposal we can capture them all. ArthurPSmith (talk) 14:59, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
  •   Support OK, I've switched the proposal to the more general set, as discussed above. --99of9 (talk) 02:43, 22 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Question:Will a single property allow us to usefully store and use formatter URLs for RDf, SPARQ end points, or suchlike? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 14:09, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
