I read this comic while taking Calculus. I thought DNE stood for Does Not Exist (as in a limit). I've actually never seen it used as Do Not Erase. Of course, this does not make sense in this context. Thank you, Explainxkcd. 02:15, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

We have the same in Danish: MIS: Må Ikke Slettes = may not be errased, when translating directley. Mis by the way means pussy(cat) in Danish. Kynde (talk) 21:24, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Such circles were always labeled "SAVE" where I went to school. But I think "DNE" would've been understood too. --Aaron of Mpls (talk) 05:43, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm from the east coast of the US and we had DNE. Anyone care to give input as to other locations' uses? 21:24, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

I'm from California and we wrote SAVE. Benjaminikuta (talk) 01:49, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm from Ohio and teachers usually just wrote a note. "Please don't erase this!" 06:07, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

I'm from SoCal and we did all kinds of things. Some students put really pretty lines, others drew monsters inside the line that had a quote "I will eat you if you erase this" which took up half the board. Also, many teachers would put the date it was written- which inevitably lead to some student assuming it was past its expiry date and erasing the whole thing. Anything prefaced with "Homework" was erased immediately upon the teacher's absence from the classroom. 15:23, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
