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.
Do not use the Visual editor, because it will mess up the content of your request (the order of the template parameters will be shuffled and paragraphs are concatenated as one long string of text).

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 property creation policy.

Having a higher (ie. 1 or 2) position will get into parliament first when the party gets enough percent. In Indonesian, the word is urut or urutan. In Germany, it's called Listenplatz, and also important to who gets into parliament.

I know we have candidate number and series ordinal but it's too ambiguous. Germartin1 (talk) 17:44, 29 October 2021 (UTC)


  •   Support That makes sense. –MJLTauk 17:53, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
  • I used series ordinal to describe position on the list when I entered the New Zealand general election candidates to Wikidata, and would have preferred to have a more specific property. I think your property description could be clearer though? As I understand your proposal, it is intended to record the position of the candidate on a ranked list of candidates before the election, is that right? (That's the property that I would be keen to have). However it is possible that what you have written could be interpreted as the final candidate position after the election? (In NZ at least these positions on the list can be different things, as some candidates on the list get into parliament through an electorate instead of through the list, thus changing the number of the list of everyone coming below them). I think it should be clarified what the property is for or people trying to use the data down the line will not know how to interpret it.
We also had a situation in the last election in NZ where several unregistered political parties collaborated together to make a list of MPs to create one list of candidates, so their list position is not "within the party". DrThneed (talk) 21:17, 29 October 2021 (UTC)
Yes what I mean it's not the final result position. It's the position before the election. I thought "candidate" is clear enough, but I'll try to elaborate it more. Germartin1 (talk) 18:42, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
  •   Comment I think candidate number (P4243) is used for that, see the proposal at Wikidata:Property proposal/candidate number and the frequency of values 1 and 2: [1]. I don't think series ordinal (P1545) is suitable as its context isn't clear. --- Jura 14:07, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
    You're right, apparently P4243 is used for that. For candidate number I think of every candidate having a different number, but Candidate position is within a party & district. In my dataset I have a candidate number (ie. 3303-00-0000-0503) and a candidate position (ie. 3) (example) Germartin1 (talk) 14:52, 31 October 2021 (UTC)
    • Is the candidate number election specific? If not, a dedicated property like P:P1839 could be preferable. --- Jura 16:32, 2 November 2021 (UTC)
It's not election specific either. Germartin1 (talk) 18:42, 11 November 2021 (UTC)
It should really be called something like "Candidate number ID" tbhMJLTauk 20:35, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

The existing property executive body (P208) gives two examples: Israel (Q801) executive body (P208) cabinet of Israel (Q2578249) and Brazil (Q155) executive body (P208) Federal Government of Brazil (Q5440531). But these are not equivalent. The "government" is the broad term for the executive branch, including the civil service. The "cabinet" is a committee that advises the head of state and gives instructions to the civil service. Both should be linked on a state's page, but from different properties. I suggest keeping executive body (P208) for "Government of XYZ" and creating a new property for cabinets. We already have a property called cabinet (P5054), but it is meant to be used only as a qualifier, and should probably be renamed to something like "cabinet membership". --Arctic.gnome (talk) 16:44, 9 March 2022 (UTC)

participating party/partiesEdit


Coalition governments are common, but in many cases a single party could also form a stable cabinet. I did spot usage of political coalition (P5832) (e.g. in Nehammer government (Q109907459)) but it would be confusing to use it for single party governments. Thus I'm suggesting this new property to be versatile enough for every cabinet (Q640506), government (Q7188) or similiar formed by any number of parties and easily used to derive lists ([2]) or diagrams ([3]) from. You can see such data is missing from some items like First Thatcher ministry (Q5453886) or Third Merkel cabinet (Q15094515).

There might be potential for confusion. So discussion would be highly welcomed here:

Should it replace political coalition (P5832)?

I would like to make a tool in toolforge that will allow a user to input an IP address and get the organization (Q43229) associated for that IP address. Unfortunately, you cannot query a range unless you have the start and end of that range.

Ogoorcs (talk) 13:42, 16 November 2021 (UTC)

  • Describing items about events happened in the past on a blockchain is a more real usecase than having people using the addresses to send money. Ogoorcs (talk) 21:06, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
  • You use the link to the website page as the reference for the address. If I had to use it for sending money I would probably use the statement to have the reference at hand. Ogoorcs (talk) 21:06, 18 November 2021 (UTC)
  • We already attach wallet addresses pages on blockchain explorers as references; as of today I am not aware of abuses. Ogoorcs (talk)
  • As with any other statement is always up to the user to check if the reported information adheres to the reference. It's enough for most real world usecases to provide a reference URL to the official organization reference as we would do. Allow changing statements using the property to autoconfirmed users or to single service bots is a valid option for me, too. Ogoorcs (talk) 21:06, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

dean (higher education)Edit


Head of university / college faculty. Problem: There are several types of institutions in the university structure (faculty, department, institute, etc.), the leaders of which are marked differently in the infoboxes. Like the rector (P1075) attribute, I propose to introduce the "dean" attribute in order to be able to distinguish it in the infoboxes from, for example, heads of departments, directors of institutes, and rectors of universities. Palotabarát (talk) 10:06, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Egyetemi/főiskolai kar vezetője. Probléma: az egyetemi struktúrában számos intézménytípus található (kar, tanszék, intézet stb.), melyek vezetőinek jelölése az infoboxokban különböző. A rector (P1075) tulajdonsághoz hasonlóan javaslom bevezetni a dékán tulajdonságot annak érdekében, hogy az infoboxokban meg tudjuk különböztetni például a tanszékek vezetőitől, intézetek igazgatóitól, egyetemek rektoraitól. Palotabarát (talk) 10:06, 13 May 2022 (UTC)


Nomen ad hoc yes, this seems to be enough for the P1037, but in practice it is not.
  1. There are 7443 elements where instance of (P31) = faculty (Q180958). In 52 elements the driver is indicated at chairperson (P488) and in 292 elements at director / manager (P1037). However, nowhere in 95 percent of the items (see: I am afraid, in many cases, because there is no similarity to the rector that exactly covers this position.
  2. I've linked 4 templates that have a "dean" parameter, but it occurs in many more templates, and if you take the data from Wikidata, it won't display it exactly. The rector appears in the appropriate place, but instead of the dean, the "director / manager" parameter shows the faculty leader. This is also a problem because larger faculties may have directors in addition to / under the dean (eg director of education, director of science, etc.) see for example

I think it’s needed, mainly because of the templates, but it’s a little weird anyway that there’s a rector but no dean’s property. Palotabarát (talk) 22:22, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Organizations whose members wear uniforms often have their distinctive shoulder sleeve insignia however this insignia does not fit well into the coat of arms image (P94) or logo image (P154) category. There might even be instances where an organization has a logo, a coat of arms, a badge (another proposal) and shoulder sleeve insignia - all different and requiring separate properties. Some positions within the organizations may have their own unique patches. VileGecko (talk) 15:58, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
