[Story] Improve the listing and classification of properties
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Currently we have several systems to list properties:

  • Special:AllPages, namespace 120

But if we need classification, than it shall be supported directly throught "tags" on property or thought tenplates on property talk page

Ok so we have statements on properties now. What are people's wishes/thoughts on this using the statements on properties we have? What kind of tools would be most helpful based on top of that?

We now have https://tools.wmflabs.org/hay/propbrowse/ which people seem to like. Maybe it is time to remove all the manually created pages on Wikidata and link to that instead?

That list is only in English. Missing translation.

The Wikimedia-Hackathon-2016 starts tomorrow and this task is featured at T119703. We want to use T130776: Wikimedia Hackathon 2016 Opening Session to promote these projects and help recruiting volunteers to work for them.

If this task is ripe for hackathon work, please follow these instructions. If it is not ready, remove it from T119703 in order to avoid volunteers' frustration. Thank you!
