Nonsense. RickK 22:37, Jun 26, 2004 (UTC)

  • What's nonsense about it?? 22:39, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • delete, trivial --Jiang 22:41, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: It's null. It's about on a level with noticing that socks go spare. Geogre 23:39, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. I'm also triyng to delete an article about differences between dialects, see above. Now we have the crazziness of comparions, my God! Keep with the "Lists"-mania at least they are funny. -Pedro 23:44, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Somewhat better now; does anyone still think this should be deleted?? 23:50, 26 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • this is not wikitrivia. --Jiang
      • Agree with Jiang. Still trivia of no importance as an encyclopedia article. RickK 00:00, Jun 27, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete trivial trivia. -- Cyrius| 00:23, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • It's good info, not trivial, but I don't know if it deserves an article of its own. All the info could be easily covered elsewhere, and probably already is. Everyking 01:49, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • "Both have coins as well as bills." isn't trivial!? -- Cyrius| 02:33, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • Well, my point was that the information itself is not trivial. Certainly the forms of currencies that exist in different nations is important information. Everyking 02:56, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep. Almost every Canadian news channel, every single day, compares Canada and US currencies. I have added a section to that effect Thesteve 03:16, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • The problem with that is that the news channels I've seen (perhaps I've missed an economics show of some variety on this) compare only the value of Canadian currency relative to the U.S. dollar, which is the international monetary standard. They don't say, "In other currency news, the United States had a two dollar bill while Canada does not." Lord Bob 14:37, Jun 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • I think we should have a page highlighting all forms of currency, perhaps even with a few pictures. Of course there is no need to "compare" them, but an overview of the forms they all take would ceratinly be good information. Falcon 03:23, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. --Yath 03:27, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • If we kept this, we should logically have "comparison" articles for all kinds of things. I don't see the point. Isomorphic 07:50, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • How about a redirect to Canadian and American economies compared, which is a much more in-depth article? Thesteve 13:19, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
    • Good idea. Vote to redirect. -Sean Curtin 19:59, 27 Jun 2004 (UTC)
      • I agree. Redirect. Lord Bob 14:37, Jun 28, 2004 (UTC)
  • Keep - it may be trivial but the version I just read is an article - Tεxτurε 22:17, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • There might be an interesting article on this subject, but this isn't it. Delete if there isn't major improvement. MK 04:56, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete - the US and Canada are not the only countries with currencies called dollars. Secretlondon 22:51, 30 Jun 2004 (UTC)
  • This debate has gotten so large. With current knowledge, a re-direct to Canadian and American economies compared is perfectly fine and I'll go with it. Any objections still?? 15:35, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    • Are you planning to merge the information from this article into that one? - Tεxτurε 16:54, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
      • That is Thesteve's decision. Go contact him if you have any comments. 16:56, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
        • No, it's not. Anyone can merge. No one owns an article. We can decide here. I do not vote to redirect if the content is lost. - Tεxτurε 17:21, 1 Jul 2004 (UTC)
