Now, this is very annoying and time consuming, but I have merged quite a lot of articles which have been flagged for a very long amount of time. Why have they been left? Unsigned comment by Reallyfat (talk • contribs).

Most probably because it's time-consuming (as you mention).--Morgan 10:04, 14 February 2013 (UTC)
Right, I'm bushed. But I have reduced the number of pages that need merging by around 20. There is not much left, so if anyone does give me a hand we can have all of these articles gone by tomorrow. Unsigned comment by Reallyfat (talk • contribs).
I've held off as I still hope someday to have articles for every Quenya, Sindarin, etc. word, and if that's the case most of the merge candidates become worth keeping. But I think I'm on my own with that opinion :) --Hyarion 03:45, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
I too have the same wish. I think it would be great if we had an article for each of the words in Morgan's dictionaries. But we don't need to keep the merge candidates. Whenever I merge articles, I make sure that if the article has any one piece of etymological information, that piece of information is retained. So the articles for different words can just link to the etymology section of merged articles (where applicable).--Reallyfat Trollion 10:44, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
