MusicBrainz release IDEdit

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Authority control


Doesn't exist yet; would be helpful for albums released in multiple editions (e.g. standard/deluxe, or different tracks in different countries). Unfortunately using this would require a lot of extra items for very similar releases (e.g. mono/stereo), but it would be necessary for tracklist (P658) to be used correctly.

  •   Comment couldn't this be a parent property for all other MB ones? It seems that value are unique across all the properties with have.

    @Jura1: The formatter URLs would break. Also, for release groups with only one release it would make sense to add both identifiers to the item which represents the release (since as far as I'm aware Wikidata uses version, edition, or translation (Q3331189) only to distinguish works with multiple versions).

    I'm sure a solution can be could for the formatter url. Somehow these MB properties got out of the hand.

    @Jura1: If you want to have one unified MusicBrainz property then propose the other MusicBrainz properties for deletion first. I don't think there's a limit on the number of properties that can exist, and different MusicBrainz IDs might have different constraints (e.g. an item might be allowed to have a recording ID as well as a work ID, but not a recording ID as well as a release group ID). Jc86035 (talk) 06:54, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
    We can make this a parent property for anything that doesn't have a dedicated one yet. No need to delete the others first. As I understand it, there is just one MB identifier: the same value doesn't re-occur across properties.
