Tagged by someone else, not me. I actually think keep. While some of the pages *might* be suitable for deletion, not all of them! Although Arabic numerals are translingual, aren't they? In the same way languages other than Latin use the Latin alphabet. So maybe clean up a little. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:53, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, the category template is wrong: it treats Arabic numerals as an Arabic-language category for numerals. Or maybe that's what the cat should be for in fact, and things like 9 should be in a differently named category.​—msh210 20:07, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
I tend to think that would be Category:ar:Numerals as I don't think a numeral is a part of speech. Better to keep and improve than just delete it. Even the person that added {{rfd}} is saying most of the entries should be deleted, ergo not referring to the category directly. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:18, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
Kept, the person nominating it had no reason to delete it, and neither do I. Mglovesfun (talk) 18:08, 12 October 2009 (UTC)
