RFD discussion: July 2017[edit]

Keep tidy.svg

The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process (permalink).

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

Specific Harry Potter sequels. (I've only bothered to tag HP1, but please consider this to cover 2 through HP7 too.) Having an HP entry is fine, but I don't agree with these. HP1 doesn't really mean "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone"; it means "Harry Potter 1", and that just happens to be the first one. Likewise, we can tell what HP15 refers to, even though no such book yet exists. It's a lot like the previously mooted entries for S1E1, S1E2, S1E3 etc. (season/episode of TV series), though I can't seem to find that discussion. At the time I likened them to temperature entries for 1ºC, 30ºF, etc.; we only need F and C. Equinox 16:30, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

  • Yes, delete all (or replace with other meanings e.g. "heterochromatin protein 1"). SemperBlotto (talk) 05:08, 6 July 2017 (UTC)
Kinsey 0, 1, 2 through 6 is another set that makes me roll my eyes a bit. Equinox 15:15, 9 July 2017 (UTC)
Funnily enough I have heard Kinsey-6 used adjectivally, as in "he is Kinsey-6 gay" (I think in the movie Easy A). No idea if 1-5 get that sort of use, if 0 did that wouldn't surprise me either. - [The]DaveRoss 11:23, 12 July 2017 (UTC)
Deleted: as per Equinox, they are SoP (and possibly not dictionary material as well); compare ISA 200. — SGconlaw (talk) 20:23, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
