Doesn't seem like a very useful dictionary appendix... This, that and the other (talk) 10:03, 4 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes delete, formatting and content are both terrible too. Both are fixable, but why fix them if we don't want this in the first place. What would be next Appendix:Common themes in sport? Delete. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:41, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
(Just in time for the Olympic hype.) Delete: if anything, convert to a topical category, but I am not enthusiastic. Also, this only deals with a very specific kind of fiction: apparently kids' stories, ghost stories, and myths, despite the large amount of realistic fiction. Equinox 10:50, 4 August 2012 (UTC)
It's interesting for sure, but it's rather encyclopedic and doesn't really belong in a dictionary. Delete. Or turn into a topical category like Equinox suggests, but deleting may be better. What is common in fiction depends on time, fiction a few hundred years ago was quite different. —CodeCat 11:31, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like both a bad idea and unworkable as a topical category. Who decides what's common and what's not common? Also, who would want it, and why? Wiktionary doesn't have to do everything, that's where there are sister projects, and non-Wikimedia projects beyond those. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:33, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Ship it to WP or delete. DCDuring TALK 15:57, 6 August 2012 (UTC)
Seems Wikipedia can't transwiki from us, as lame as that sounds. That would only leave deletion, and I'm all for it. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:04, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
