Property:Foaf:mbox

From Openresearch
Jump to: navigation, search

This attribute represents the imported FOAF property foaf:mbox (foaf | Friend Of A Friend). It is used to specify someones email address in URI-form. However: Do not use foaf:mbox directly. Instead, use the template Template:mailbox as follows:

{{mailbox|someone@somewhere.org}}

to get multiple annotations in one step: one with foaf:mbox and one with Property:email. To still use foaf:mbox, one would write

[[foaf:mbox:=mailto:someone@somewhere.org]]

where "mailto:" is important.

Attention: FOAF specifies that everything with a value for foaf:mbox is a foaf:Agent, i.e. some entity that can do something. So do not use foaf:mbox to assign an email, e.g., to a conference. An alternative to foaf:mbox is Property:email which encodes emails as a string (without "mailto:" and without a FOAF interpretation).
