Word use[change source]

Hello there, I just wanted to let you know that Netoholic has not been active in this wikipedia for at least two years. The article you mention cites a book of Mr Ogden, published in 1940. I guess that is where these "rules" are from. Has this been checked yet? --Eptalon (talk) 17:24, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Found it! At [[1]]. Inserting the citation in both SEWP and enWP today. Thanks. --RoyGoldsmith (talk) 17:49, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

RFDs[change source]

Hey RoyGoldsmith, I see you're making a bunch of RFDs right now on the BE redirects. Do you think you could combine them into one RFDs? They seem to all have the same reason to delete, so it would make it easier rather than having 5, 6, whatever number of RFDs on each one when we can have one centralized location. Users will most likely be giving the same rationale to keep/delete each one, so putting them in one RFD would be easier. Thanks, Either way (talk) 12:13, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

I know but I had to stick {{rfd|whatevers}} in each of the redirect articles. This was the first time I ever nominated articles for deletion (even in enWP) and I didn't know if it was acceptable to combine them (or even how to do it). If you want to combine the four nominations into one, be my guest. Please note however that each nomination has a slightly different reason. By the way, I have replied to your comment in Wikipedia talk:Basic English combined wordlist#Meaning of "Next"? --"Roy" RoyGoldsmith (talk) 12:44, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
