The obituary for Valentina Blackhorse (Q92079066) makes it clear that there is cultural significance given to the time at which this person died. Defining this in Wikidata is not possible at the moment. 1Veertje (talk) 18:03, 16 May 2020 (UTC)


ah, that works. Thank you. I'll add "local time" as an alias there. 1Veertje (talk) 21:50, 19 May 2020 (UTC)
  Support To me the qualifier seem valid as people might know the local time but not the whole system that it refers to (Example: UTC time, GPS time, sun time, etc) nor the characteristics (time zone, etc). And I don't see how to do it with refine date (P4241) but I could have missed something. Maybe there is another way to do it but no one suggested it yet and I didn't find any.

  •   Support even if other qualifiers would be needed. --- Jura 16:41, 26 May 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I'll stay in my position: creating a property requires a minimum of 2 examples and the proposal specifies to include 3 examples. (and property creators shouldn't vote for - in that sense IMHO) —Eihel (talk) 09:01, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
