  • One thousand one Unless someone wants to do one to nine hundred ninety nine, I don't see a need for this article at present. RedWolf 04:11, Jan 17, 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. silsor 07:34, Jan 17, 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. But only if it is expanded a bit. 1001 is a special number often used to mean, well, a lot. 1001 Arabian Nights, 1001 the detergent. 1001 ways to.... 1001 uses for ... Certainly a more famous number than many. (Mathematically speaking, more interesting than almost all of them if we go up to infinity.) And let's not forget 1001 Dalmations. (Thsi film was 101, the book was 1001.)SpellBott 13:08, 17 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Special significance in Arabic culture. Alf layla wa layla - a thousand nights and a night. Alf sukran wa shukran - a thousand thank-yous and a thank-you. And some stuff about fleas I will not mention :) Anjouli 17:22, 17 Jan 2004 (UTC)
      • This needs to be added to the article, then, to make it merit survival. At that point it would indeed be a keeper, but right now it's not. Tempshill 18:27, 17 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Add the good stuff, then it's a keeper. - UtherSRG 18:48, 17 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. Thoroughly useless.Robartin 18:09, Jan 18, 2004 (UTC)
    • Yep, delete. PMC 21:11, 18 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep, since its a keeper since the good stuff CAN be added even if neither you nor I want to do it right now. BL 05:32, Jan 20, 2004 (UTC)
    • Delete. Not a sufficiently interesting number AFAIK, and the criterion should be, does the article justify the claim that it is? Even a good stub should do this, but this doesn't at present. If someone familiar with arabic culture likes to add the above claims in a suitable form, then reassess. Andrewa 21:45, 20 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • keep if copyedited ... otherwise too amorphous IMO, JDR
    • move discussion to Talk:List of numbers/Deletion Anthony DiPierro 14:05, 22 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • I have expanded this a bit. Would people care to revote on the new version? Anjouli 05:01, 24 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Also, given the updates to the article, some prior "delete" votes should no longer be considered valid unless they are affirmed.Peak 05:12, 24 Jan 2004 (UTC)
    • Keep. Someone, probably User:PrimeFan, will do an article on 999 as a stub in the article on 900. 16:40, 26 Jan 2004 (UTC)

I'm not sure what the global perspective is on this, but in Britain, the number is generally called one thousand and one, I'm wondering if the page should be moved either to one thousand and one or have the and page as a redirect. SimonMayer 00:30, 25 Jan 2004 (UTC)

It should be redirected here. Convention says we honor the original contributor's choice of spelling. --Jiang 00:36, 26 Jan 2004 (UTC)
I'm ok with that, but I think if the general consensus is that "and" should be used, then the page should be moved. However if convention dictates this then far be it from me to argue. SimonMayer 01:18, 25 Jan 2004 (UTC)
Check Talk:List_of_numbers/Deletion#Vote_on_naming about the name -- User:Docu

When are we going to move these numbers to sensible names? "One thousand one" is just completely nonsensical to me as a Briton. I cannot understand American objections to the inclusion of "and", surely nobody is confused by "One hunderd and One Dalmations"? But whatever, wasn't a consensus agreed to move this to 1001 (number)? Mintguy (T) 09:08, 20 Feb 2004 (UTC)

If you divide any repeated 3 single numbers by 1001 you get the first 3. for example 546,546 divided by 1001 is 546, 345,345/1001=345 you can get the same result dividing seperatly by its factors as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:24, 26 July 2008 (UTC)

    • The link for 1002 directs to the page for 1000. I removed the link. lcohalan
