Expand QuickStatements to allow wider variety of statements

  • Problem: QuickStatements is a vital part of a lot of work on Wikidata. It has a broad range of capabilities, however from time to time you run into types of statements that can not be added by QuickStatements. For example:
  • setting and changing ranks for statements
  • specifying calendar for a date statement
  • specifying precision or globe for a location statement
  • etc.
  • Who would benefit: Wikidata users who are using QuickStatements and would like to be able to do more with it.
  • Proposed solution: Expand capabilities of the tool.

If I remember correctly it's also impossible to add "no value" claims via QuickStatements, for example, South Pole: country: no value. Kaldari (talk) 18:44, 21 November 2017 (UTC)
