Structured data on commons - practical questions


trying to add depict statements to files, I again and again run into questions. Two from today:

  1. If a poet is reading at an event that has a Wikidata item, but it ist a portrait and not much of the background is visible - do I still say this depicts for example the Leipzig book fair?
  2. If the number 2019 is shown in the background of the image, because it is taken in 2019 - do I say this image depicts the year 2019 or do I say it depicts the number 2019?

to be continued…

  1. No.
  2. The number.

At least, that is my opinion. For 1, there are probably other properties that might be used rather than depicts to capture that it was during the event.
