Is it anticipated by other wiki users that someone will come along to create a new article for every one of the common nouns listed here?

I added a page for Flagellant (webmaster), although he deserves more than what I wrote, but I did not know much more information than what I offered. In the case of common nouns, though, I think sainthood may be a prerequisite for authorship. --Dezdemona (talk)

I can only speak for myself -- I regularly turn terms in articles into links when I think the term has a potential to become an article of its own. This incluces proper nouns such as France and common nouns such as back, book or song -- the idea being that the article should briefly define the lemma and then go into some detail on how it relates to spanking or spanking art. Sometimes the connection(s) can be surprising, for example the mentioned use of a book as a physical protection against spanking. The pages that link to the term ("What links here") will often help in filling the article with contents.
I often browse that Wanted pages list myself for new articles to write. The number of links are of course not a good measure as to how important the article is to the wiki -- for this we have to use common sense. Often the most interesting pages have only one link pointing to them. What you did, writing stubs that contain the information you know (or find relevant), is perfectly good and welcome. Others will come along and expand the stub if they can. --Spankart (talk) 11:07, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the info and greetings. I have searched the Wanted pages for obscure nouns that I imagined the average user might not know the meaning of, such as BSD. --Dezdemona (talk)

This is most helpful —Roguebfl (talk) 18:19, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

People may also want to dip their toe into Category:Stubs which contains a greater many articles argueably more desperate for meaningful content. We've got the majority of the redlinks sorted, but it'd be a hollow victory if stubs got too badly negelected. RobM 10:55, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

I couldn't agree more. --Spankart (talk) 11:29, 24 March 2010 (UTC)
