SMWObjects on Wikispooks are a consequence of using Semantic Mediawiki. Each page is assigned to one of the below object types by using the matching template. The most important main: namespace templates are: person, group, event and concept. All items in the document: namespace must be of type document.

Subobjects

In fact there is not quite a one to one relationship between semantic objects and pages, since the software allows definition of more than one semantic object on each page. As of 2019, Wiksipooks uses this facility in the SMWQ and Job templates, which both define their own semantic subobjects (for quotations and job postings respectively). (To allows references to these data to appear on other pages).

Semantic Objects summary

The full breakdown of Wikispooks:Semantic Objects is as follows.

                  Object Name                  #ObjectsStatusDescription      Infobox template[1]      
Concept1,104stableThis is a catch-all object, to be used on all pages where the other objects don't apply. Extra top level objects will probably be split off from it in due course.Infobox
Decade26experimentalThe object for calendar decades.
Document1,580stableThis object is only to be used for pages in the document: namespace. It is for documents created by 3rd parties.
Employment1,038stableThe object for names of jobs important enough to have their own Wikispooks page.Infobox
Event836stableThe object for experiences/operations that happened, will happen or were planned to happen.Infobox event

Place152experimentalThis experimental object is for regions, cities, grassy knolls, wine cellars etc.Infobox settlement
Property213stableThe relationships used by SMW to connect pages together. This object mandated for the property: namespace.
