Forum:New rule for nominations on VFD
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
OK guys, I have added the following to the VFD rules for making a nomination:
|Check the revision history of the page. It may have been vandalised, or just badly edited over a long period of time. If so, find a better version and revert the article. It may not be suitable for deletion.|
Obviously I don't expect people to spend the entire day searching the history for the single best version there is, what I am asking is that people make a reasonable effort to try to find something better before they nominate. It only takes a minute or two to have a look. Just look at a few diffs at various times and it should soon become obvious if the article has deteriorated. If you do find something better and still want to nominate you should revert to the "better" page, and nominate that. What I don't want is people just looking at the article as it is now, and nominating based only on that.
Yes this makes nominating on VFD more effort, but it's better than throwing away stuff which we might otherwise keep. Many people do this already I know, the difference is that now it's a requirement. If it becomes obvious that people are not bothering to do this, I will deal with it then. Cheers. MrN 14:51, Apr 3
