The property suggester keeps suggesting completely inappropriate human properties to me on items which are not humans.
For example, right now, https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q504582 has the properties
- P31 (instance of)
- P373 (Commons category)
- P625 (coordinate location)
- P17 (country)
- P18 (image)
- P935 (Commons gallery)
- P885 (origin of the watercourse)
- P1599 (GeoNames ID)
- P646 (Freebase ID)
- P214 (VIAF ID)
Of those, 6 are generic and can apply to a variety of items, 3 are specific to geographical features and 1 is fairly generic but not usually found on humans.
Despite that, if I go to add a new property, the suggested properties are:
- P131 (located in the administrative territorial entity)
- P21 (sex or gender)
- P569 (date of birth)
- P735 (given name)
- P27 (country of citizenship)
- P106 (occupation)
- P19 (place of birth)
The first of these would be a good property. The other 6 are all specific to humans (and other living beings) and should definitely not be added to rivers.
I can't see why it's so biased towards human properties here. I would expect to see properties relating to rivers (e.g. P403 (mouth of the watercourse) would actually be a useful suggestion) or at least properties relating to geographical features rather than humans.
Suggested solutions from discussion (please complete):
- allow weighting of properties with classifying values (P31 / P279) , compare to others.
- add P106 to properties with classifying values
- if item has P17, check if P17 on property matches (same value or no property), if not: don't suggest property
