See #Template:quite above (unless it's been archived, see WT:PDE). Too ambiguous, doesn't really add anything hence it can only cause confusion. Ergo delete. Also very few transclusions (about 10). Mglovesfun (talk) 18:13, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

"Quite" has nearly contradictory meanings which contradiction cannot be resolved in our use. "Somewhat" is a bit vague, but unambiguously is more than "slightly" (Do we use this?) and less than both unmodified and "very" or "extremely", IMO. Other assessments?

{{slightly}} has only got 8 transclusions, and {{fairly}} doesn't exist. I find slightly a lot less ambiguous (although I'm not sure why). Maybe a redirect? I just don't like somewhat as it means not a lot. Mglovesfun (talk) 13:40, 14 October 2009 (UTC)
Keep pending further work on Category:English degree adverbs and Appendix:English degree adverbs to determine which adverbs might be usable to express fuzzy gradients. I don't see how this can be deleted without facts or references. What should these be replaced with? If users inserted these they must have thought the unmodified qualifier unsatisfactory. That they chose this one rather than another might be meaningful. DCDuring TALK * Holiday Greetings! 15:30, 22 December 2009 (UTC)

Kept, no real harm in it. Mglovesfun (talk) 15:33, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
