Benson is over here. Upon his infinite banninism, it is suggested that:

  1. Remove notice from Template:Vdtop.
  2. Remove benson from Forum:Index.
  3. Delete Template:Forumheader/BENSON.
  4. Delete Forum:BENSON.
  5. Delete Category:BENSON if it gets created
  6. Delete all posts from this forum and archive them into a Carlow Crab type page.

Thank you, and salut BENSON etc. --Splaka 03:47, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Keep forum for off topic shit

  • Since it's already here, I think we should keep the BENSON Forum page for mundane and non-Uncyc-related discussion. To keep it out of the real Forum, you understand. Maybe we could also stick the Miniluv stuff in there because nobody cares about it. —rc (t) 03:50, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Delete when banned

  • Kill it --Splaka 04:33, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Kill it with a chainsaw and burn the remains!!!!! Of course, we'll have to block Benson and BENSON.

  • Kill. It would be a pain in the arse to move every wrongly posted topic from one forum to the other.--Rataube 09:04, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Comment That's true (well, actually I don't know how pages from one forum would be moved to another with Algo's system, but I assume it's true). Another problem would be having the BENSON forum while not actually encouraging lots of annoying non-Uncyc topics, because really, who wants that. —rc (t) 16:47, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Just infinitely ban him, and don't worry about all this other crap. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 11:12, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Come on, don't ban him indefinitely... yet

This Benson thing is hilarious. He's like the demented court jester of uncyclopedia who thinks he's in charge. If he really gets to be a nuisance screwing up pages and such, then yeah, ban him indefinitely, but let's have some more Benson-style fun first. --Hrodulf 13:00, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

  • It takes a certain amount of genius to be this stupid. And idiocy is part of our mission here at Uncyclopedia. True, I could see how this could get out of hand, but I say we keep him on and adopt him as some sort of pet or something. Buy him a little cage with a wheel and some wood shavings. Look at all the fun people have had with the "Benson of the Month" thing. Please? I promise to feed him every day and take really good care of him.InfiniteMonkey 13:37, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Yes, I've found benson to be a lot of fun. KEEP BENSON! --User:Nintendorulez 21:58, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

And just to make my opinion known, I think banning someone for typing in all caps is pretty frivolous and petty. What's next, if someone has an annoying signature file, they get banned? I can think of a lot of uncyc users who would be banned instantly.
Halsmall Got a question? Ask Hal 9000! - Hrodulf - 16:57, 7 June 2006 (UTC) See what I mean?

I see what you mean. I've been debating banning a bunch of people for sig-abuse. So far, I've lacked the ambition. Pray that I don't find some. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 21:32, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
I don't use that sig every time I sign, and have made a decision not to use it on user talkpages. If it's considered abusive, I'll mothball it 100%. I really don't use it that much, I'm hoping it's less annoying that way and will perform its purpose better. I think I did a good job on getting the date to be automatic also; it took me awhile to figure that out and it's a good method. Of course to more experienced users this is nothing, but to me it was a little tricky. I described it in the Uncyclopedia:How To Get Started Editing article, so now everyone can have automatic date-stamped sigs. --Hrodulf 02:11, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Benson is amazing, right now he's harmless, and if he stays that way, let him stay here. - - Sir Real Hamster {la} {talk} {contribs} 18:13, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
He likes vanity, and you should see some of his deleted edits. --Splaka 21:11, 7 June 2006 (UTC)
He was banned for that already.--Scott 02:11, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

My opinion doesn't matter, but don't ban Benson. --OsirisX 07:44, 8 June 2006 (UTC)

Not funny anymore

“Benson is dead”
~ That German philosopher on Benson

Ok, I think we abused this Benson joke as much as possible and now it's time to finally burry it. Keep only the original and funniest topic (BENSON IS HERE) to remind us of the good old times and kill the rest now, along with this whole forum.--Rataube 00:01, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

RATAUBE! TRAITOR! You are hearby kicked from the LEAGUE of BENSON! Benson 00:43, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

What about BENSON NEEDS SUPPORT TO BE N00B OF THE MONTH? We havn't even finished voting yet! --Hrodulf 15:44, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Exactly. BENSON cannot be destroyed until all issues have been resolved. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 15:56, 9 June 2006 (UTC)


YOu can not permban Benson just because you grow tired of him. Benson has not broken any rules. YOu CAN NOT ban someone just because you don't like them, and besides BENSON IS BETTER THEN YOU! Benson 19:39, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

You can't be that better, if you keep on making all those typos and bad grammar, when the rest of us have so few between us. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 19:53, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

Your missing the point: You can not permban Benson just because you grow tired of him! Benson 19:55, 9 June 2006 (UTC)

I'm with Benson on this one. I don't think it's fair to permanently ban someone who isn't doing vandalism. Unfortunately, fairness doesn't have much to do with the ban process, so I suppose what I have to say on the subject is, for all practical purposes, completely and utterly worthless, as proven definitively by:

Forum:Who Admins the Admins?
Forum:Who Uses the Users
Me getting the ban stick unexpectedly waved at me
Me getting the ban stick unexpectedly waved at me again
Flash:Admins apparently sit around debating large scale bans without warning (because they can, naturally).

Since I can't do anything about the simple fact that Admins can ban anyone (or even everyone), at any time, for any reason, or theoretically no reason, and there's nothing anybody can really do about it, I did all I decided it was possible for me to do, update the HowTo guide accordingly To Get Started Editing#If_you_get_banned To Get Started Editing#If_you_get_banned and create the Ban Chapel User:Hrodulf/BanChapel, although that's mainly for my own use, for situations when To Get Started Editing#A_few_words_about_personality_conflicts To Get Started Editing#A_few_words_about_personality_conflicts doesn't cut it. Maybe I should buy some paper bags to breathe into also, since I'm probably on the way to more bannination. As has been noted several times, uncyclopedia is not a democracy. What is noted less often than that is the corollary that users have no readily discernable rights at all. It's important to remember this, otherwise you could be lulled into a false sense of security.

So remember, if you do get banned, check your sig template. It may have annoyed someone.

--Hrodulf 20:56, 9 June 2006 (UTC)
Yes, its one thing for Famine to constantly joke about permbanning me (I hope Famine's joking...), but to permban someone who is not a vandal is no good. Even ignoring Benson's status as the messiah, he has never been a vandal. And only vandals and others who are truly being malicious to the wiki ought to be permbanned. --User:Nintendorulez 19:03, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
Actually, I'm not joking. I'm out to permaban everyone on this site. Alphabetically, ∩ becomes before every other letter, so I'm shadowing you, looking for anything remotely close to ban material. After you're gone I think I'll start on the As. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 22:34, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
But that's only my sig! My registered username starts with N! *runs screaming* I WILL OUTRUN THE BAN STICK! --User:Nintendorulez 23:11, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
∩ has always been my favorite letter. Look at it sitting there, looking to plot something. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 23:37, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
