Wikidata:Property proposal/Transportation

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.

Is there a general principle to guide whether it's better to have finer-grained properties, or finer-grained classes and subclasses? A similar question has come up at Project chat#Items for multi-intersection. Scs (talk) 12:13, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

  •   Oppose the values proposed for this property are all "types of ship", which should be used with instance of (P31) (and mostly are, for the given examples). If there were items for the "rigging" itself that was somehow independent of ship type maybe this would make sense, but "ship type" and "rigging", at least for sailing ships, seem to be closely tied so I don't think there is a case for this property at all right now.

  •   Comment @MB-one: could you fix the samples per comment by Arthur? Obviously, warship can't be the p31 for Alinghi 5 (Q681813). --- Jura 21:40, 30 June 2019 (UTC)
    • @Jura: you are absolutely right. Fixed it. --MB-one (talk) 07:11, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
    • @MB-one: I think what he means is that you should have values that are items that describe only the rigging not a type of ship with that rigging. --- Jura 08:21, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  •   Support Usefull and much more specific than instance of (P31)/subclass of (P279). /ℇsquilo 16:09, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
  • @MB-one, Scs, Esquilo, Cwf97: I think the items for types of rigging would still need to be made/updated above. Alternatively, how about calling this w:sail plan? --- Jura 18:57, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
    Trying to modulate a whole sail-plan in one wikidata property is not possible i think, but the gallery under the section "Types of sailing vessels" provides a good base for a "allowed values" list. /ℇsquilo 19:13, 11 August 2019 (UTC)

  Oppose This is a classification property. Mark any possible values as instance of (P31) if needed, this makes extra easy to find this in queries. See User:TomT0m/Classification for an introduction on classification. As such, regular tools for class trees are easily usable in any case. author  TomT0m / talk page 08:28, 12 August 2019 (UTC)
