Semantic Wiki[edit]

Stationery Wiki has the Semantic Wiki extension installed. More information can be found on the Stationery Wiki Semantic Wiki page.

Here is a list of Special Pages than can be used to find out more about the properties used in this wiki

  • Special:Properties lists properties that appear in annotations in alphabetical order and indicate the frequency of their usage.
  • Special:UnusedProperties lists property pages that are not in any annotations. This may indicate that a property was abandonded and should be deleted.
  • Special:WantedProperties lists properties that are used but do not have a descriptive page. This is not desirable, since users then cannot find any documentation on such properties, so that confusion may arise regarding their proper use.
  • Special:Concepts lists the concepts ("dynamic categories") created on the wiki.
  • Special:Types lists the available datatypes for properties.
