The following information has failed Wiktionary's deletion process.

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.


Rfd-sense x2:

  • the number zero
  • the origin point of a three axis graph

As for the first, you can add literally infinite leading zeroes to any given number and it won't change the meaning at all. We surely don't need entries for 001, 013 etc. just because they include leading zeroes.

The second... why do we have this? Many coordinate systems have zero as their point of origin and note it in various notational systems, like P(0, 0)... but do these need their own entries? -- Liliana 15:19, 10 December 2011 (UTC)

Delete, WTF? Surely in the second sense it's (0, 0, 0) anyway. --Mglovesfun (talk) 15:31, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
I have added a sense I know to be real and converted the rfd to 2 rfd-senses. It is possible that the new sense merits a challenge, of course, but I rather think we need similar senses at 0000, 00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and at other numbers and letters used for standard sizes.

Delete zero and graph definitions.As per above.
Keep emergency contact number. No valid reason listed for deletion. Widespread use. No different from 911, 112, triple O--Dmol 23:42, 10 December 2011 (UTC)
Relax, nobody proposed deletion of emergency contact sense. --Hekaheka 01:55, 11 December 2011 (UTC)
Definitely delete those two senses. They don't make any sense mathematically. Dbfirs 17:15, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Delete the "number zero" sense per nomination. The "origin" sense would seem to require RFV (though I've never heard of it, myself).​—msh210 (talk) 18:10, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
The "origin" sense is written (0,0,0). I suppose we could have "mis-spelling of (0,0,0)", but I'd prefer to delete it. Dbfirs 13:48, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Deleted.​—msh210 (talk) 17:27, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
