Notability[edit]

I suggest the notability issues raised by sligocki are discussed here: Category talk:Positional numeral systems#Notability.--Noe (talk) 17:13, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

"tetravigesimal"[edit]

This would be objected to by some as a hybrid Greek/Latin form, and the Google search tetravigesimal -wikipedia turns up exactly one hit.[1] -- AnonMoos (talk) 01:38, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

"quadrovigesimal"[edit]

This appears to have relatively little use outside Wikipedia (small number of Google hits), and is not correct Latin, so it would need to be explained why the article should be moved to that title. AnonMoos (talk) 23:39, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

i was going to write a new section...[edit]

i was going to name this page "tetravigesimal?" but i already seen a section on exactly that. so i just wrote this — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.185.0.100 (talk) 01:44, 2 January 2014 (UTC)

According to Wikipedia's own article [[2]], the correct form could be constructed as quadrivigesimal (note the "i" in the middle). The page is currently inconsistent between "quadrivigesimal" and "quadrovigesimal". The latter is just erroneous, so I will replace all occurrences with "quadrivigesimal". 2.25.131.166 (talk) 16:11, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
