Currently this article seems mainly to be a dictionary definition (WP:NOTDICT). As such it could go to Wiktionary or simply be deleted at AfD. Before we send it there, does anyone think it has a useful role and do they feel like expanding and citing it? Chiswick Chap (talk) 19:00, 19 May 2012 (UTC)
The term "Runet" also applies to other aspects of the internet besides just the internet in Russia. From the article: "in 2009, a Yandex report stated that Runet can pertain to sites written in Russian, Ukrainian, Belarusian and Kazakh languages, as well as sites in any language published in the national domain .am, .az, .by, .ge, .kg, .kz, .md, .ru, .su, .tj, .ua или uz". Per the source below within this comment, the term is exceedingly more complex than a simple dictionary definition.
Is this term used in English? The article cites only Russian-language sources. Does the term deserve an entry in an English-language encyclopedia if it’s apparently not even notable enough to have a single non-Russian source cited? —Frungi (talk) 22:23, 16 December 2013 (UTC)
Yes, the article is necessary. I came here expressly to look up the term while copy-editing an article about nostalgia for the Soviet era in contemporary Russian culture and commerce. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:08, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
