Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Wikidata/Property proposal helper script

Property proposal helper script

  • Problem: The property creation process is complicated, and a gadget may ease the work of property creators.
  • Proposed solution: Tool process:
    1. Create the property with the proper label/description
    2. Copy the information from the template to the newly created property
    3. Modify the template with the property number
    4. Ping the participants in the property proposal

  •   Support yes please, at least the link to the url of the discussion page, the insertion of the "ready" field in the template, the insertion of some infoboxes in the talk pages of the property, the core instances, the set up of Wikidata property examples... it would really speed up the work. I know we don't have a lot of occurrences but it's really useful to simplify our job.--Alexmar983 (talk) 21:06, 29 January 2022 (UTC)
  •   Support This would be very nice indeed. It might have to be a bit flexible as sometimes there are problems with the property proposal template (for example the regex properties are often wrong) - so leave out anything from the template that doesn't work.
