Re: Creating new Schemas?

Thanks, Martin. Much appreciated!

My thinking of an award/championship schema was, it had applications
outside of combat sports. All I can find currently is a simple, text-only
property in A proper Award schema could have
properties for its name, description, as well as its recipients. So not
only could it be used to represent things like championship titles but
other bona fide awards such as the Academy Awards, Nobel Prizes, the FIFA
World Cup, and so on.

I will start drafting something more “official” and open a pull request in
due course. Thanks again for the pointers!
