Wikipedia:WikiProject Unique Identifiers

Jump to navigation Jump to search

A project for Wikipedians using Unique Identifiers (UIDs) for article subjects; particularly where a more specific UID project does not already exist.


  1. To improve articles about UID schemes
  2. To standardise and encourage the use of UIDs in articles
  3. To formulate and deploy a policy for redirecting URLs for UIDs to articles (see UID interface to Wikipedia)
  4. To collaborate with Wikidata and DBpedia regarding the use of UIDs
  5. To develop MediaWiki feature requests relating to UIDs, if needed
  6. To liaise with external UID providers and consumers

Some of the UIDs in use on Wikipedia; this is not comprehensive list; we probably need a (hidden?) category, separate to the above, for those we actually use.
