Wikidata:Property proposal/Sister projects

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.

   Under discussion


spoken text audio (P989) currently includes files with the spoken text of a Wikipedia article associated with the item. It's generally not the most recent one, but one specified by a revision-id of the wiki. As this number is meaningless without the wiki, the above proposal includes the full url.

Wikimedia import URL (P4656) can have similar values, but, as reference URL (P854), it doesn't seem suitable as it's used in another context. Please help complete the proposal/add more samples. (Add your motivation for this property here.) --- Jura 07:52, 12 October 2019 (UTC)


  •   Comment. Maybe full work available at (P953) could do? But whatever I support the proposal. Thierry Caro (talk) 17:54, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment For giving a URL for a reference to Wikipedia, always use Wikimedia import URL (P4656) with the appropriate "permanent link" url (which can be simplified to just the kind of url above). It's not clear what other use-case (if any) the present proposal is considering. Jheald (talk) 22:27, 13 October 2019 (UTC)
    • There is a risk that it gets confused with these. It's the revision-id of the Wikipedia article that is spoken. I added the corresponding template fields. --- Jura 07:20, 14 October 2019 (UTC)
