This Predicate would be a great addition for person (actors, producers, writers, etc.).
This Predicate perfectly reflects all the activities of the person. All of his accomplishments, movies, and his entire acting life. This site seems to fit perfectly.

why is there a specific binding to a specific site imdb.com ? I think it’s not quite right that the source should be any open

I’m curious if this should be separate Predicates for the IDs that map to titles (“Creative Works” in Golden) and names (“People” in Golden).

For improper use for Creative work, it might make sense to note that the the IMDB url should be only be associated with the work in question and not with other creative works it is based off of or other works within a media franchise. Not sure the best wording but here is an example:

Examples of incorrect use:
Golden entity for book: In the Heart of the Sea - Wiki | Golden
IMDB page for movie based on the book: In the Heart of the Sea (2015) - IMDb

I guess yes. We need to avoid an error when the user inserts the url of the actor (person) into the url of the movie (creative work) and vice versa.

Yes, that’s correct. Should I change the first post (Predicate Proposal - IMDb ID/url) and add your examples?

Yes, that would be the best thing to do - thanks!

I didn’t understand you a bit. What message are you replying to?
