Is there an easy way to check for entries that consist solely of unedited Webster 1913? E.g., history consists only of creation by Poccil during the appropriate time periods (someone else came along right after that and added more Webster 1913, but they did the Right Thing and actually edited as they went).

Actually, the best way would probably be to find the Poccil-only articles and mark them with {{webster}}. Since this template includes a Category: entry, we can just look at the Webster 1913 category and clean it up, regardless of what other lists those terms may appear on. -dmh 16:36, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)

If somebody could let me know what "keywords" to scan for, I should be able to find them all with my Wiktionary parser. — Hippietrail 09:53, 3 Dec 2004 (UTC)
There is no keyword as such in the main article (exactly the problem I'm trying to fix). The best indicator is a history consisting solely of contribution by "Poccil" late this year. I've been scanning through his contribution list and fixing. If a few people each take a couple dozen we can probably get those sorted fairly quickly. There may be other instances, but I think Poccil's was the only raw mass entry. -dmh 15:41, 3 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Other wiktionaries[edit]

Some people value cooperation between the wiktioanry projects. As this list is as relevant for the English language as most of the translations are for the other wiktionaries, I have copied this page to nl:. I hope that people who work on bots find it a challenge to tackle the transfer of information to the other wiktionaries. :) GerardM 13:11, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Duplicate word[edit]

Is it intended that "help" appears twice in the list ?

Only 997 words![edit]

As far as I can count there are 999 words in this list, and "help" and "smoke" are both listed twice.

The duplicates should be removed... but what three words should be added?

I'm not sure how to decide that, but here's five candidates from Wiktionary:Frequency lists/Contemporary fiction that don't appear here in any obvious form:
