***Thinking is good, it is the way of solving the world's problems by using real world solutions. Most colleges teach you not to think, to just believe everything the media tells you and also everything your professor tells you. I was one of the few students smarter than most of my professors who kept asking them questions about inconsistencies and mistakes in their lectures and materials as well as logical fallacies using my analytical mind and deductive reasoning to figure out the truth. So they would tell me "Orion Blastar, do you want to pass this class or teach it?" to which I replied "That depends, how much salary does one earn as a teacher, and would I get paid more for teaching the truth, instead of propaganda and fear mongering that seems to pass for education these days?" eventually they learned not to mess with me anymore. --{{User:Orion Blastar/sig}} 19:17, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Rules and procedures:

  1. If you're too lazy to read the deletion policy, please, at least, carefully read this list of rules.
    1. But seriously, read the deletion policy.
    2. Do not put anything up for VFD that is not appropriate for VFD.
    3. Abusers of the policy will be abused by the claw end of a hammer. You have been warned.
  2. If you have an article that meets the criteria for VFD:
    1. 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.
    2. Add {{vfd}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
    3. Provide an initial vote (see below) and include a comment as to why you have placed the article on VFD.
  3. If you are here to vote on the deletion/salvation of articles:
    1. Thank you.
    2. No really, thank you.
    3. Edit the section for the article you are addressing.
    4. Pick a space under the appropriate heading (Keep, Delete, Comment), add your sig/comment preceded with a #
      1. # - Creates a numbered bullet for your entry and makes sure that things are formatted correctly (do not put a space before the #).
      2. Comment - If you care to, leave a comment, even if it is as short as "The article is not at all funny". Votes without comments are less useful in analyzing the quality of an article.
      3. --~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.
  4. Do not revert edits of the administrators.
  5. If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month or you will get a bollocking.
  6. If you are neither an Administrator nor a designated Poopsmith, do not remove anything from VFD; doing so will get you banned for a very long time.

Pages for Deletion

Zombiebaronvs.Braydie

Make sure that you have read the rules (above) and the deletion policy. Please don't nominate Main Page or Votes for Deletion; that joke has been done so many times we might just beat you with a nail bat before we tear our hair out in frustration. This also applies to Featured Articles and Uncyclopedia In-Jokes.


How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages):


Notes for Administrators:

  • Allow at least 24 hours before closing a nomination or deleting an article.
  • Remember to delete any unused images from deleted articles and, if necessary, check what links to the article and remove any backlinks. Make sure to delete any broken redirects created as well.
  • To avoid confusion, try to remove closed nominations which cause the page to exceed to 20 articles.
  • If a nomination is kept, please add {{Oldvfd}} to the article's talk page.

To add an article, edit this section, and follow the directions in the comments.


Don't flood VFD full of articles, or at least leave a space between your nominations.

If you increase the number of articles on VFD to over 20, you will be blocked for 1 day, no exceptions. This means do not increase the number of active votes on VFD to over twenty. Inactive votes are shown with either a red link (where they have been deleted), or with the 🔒 Closed nomination H T D Oldvfd tag to indicate that the article has been kept. You have been warned.

Please remember to check an article's history, in case of recent or long term vandalism, before nominating an article. Also, check the article's talk page and 'What links here' for prior nominations. If the article has been nominated before there will be a link from a VFD archive page.


🔒 UnNews:Bush was right, Saddam did have WMD Yellow Cake Uranium H D Oldvfd

Keep
  • Keep It was sporked and only a small part of the article was used and modified like any other UnNews article. A lot of material was added to it, and the original article is cited as a source, so it isn't plagiarism if you cite a source. If you have a problem with it, rewrite the lines. I suspect you only want to delete it because it does not agree with your political views. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 17:49, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep. It's a bit random for my taste (too many characters with too little to say), but it's not crap. Oh, lose the Chappelle bit. It adds nothing (and using other parodies' punchlines as punchlies is generally a bad idea). Having a byline seems a bit off for UnNews, too. I can't complain to loudly, however, as I've done a similar thing, if in a different way. Buy me a drink, sailor, and I'll tell you all about it. Make sure it's got an umbrella in it. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:36, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Keep Sir Orion Blastar sir... You WERE using Uncyclopedia as a platform through which to further your political views. That's not cool dude. It did contain much that was really just a rant about how much you hate the liberals, and that's just not funny. Not to me anyway. So... I removed some of what I thought was over the top, and replaced it with some other stuff. Hopefully you will decide to keep what I have done (change it a bit maybe obviously). I think it's OK now, so I'm voting accordingly. Sonic80 and Hyper... Take another look... :-) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:46, Jul 6
  • I like what you've done. But now the article is really inconsistent. It starts off talking about yellow cakes and moves on to talking about uranium. I feel like the rewrite needs to be more complete. --Hyperbole 19:50, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    • I will see what I can do... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:56, Jul 6
  • It is actually yellow cake uranium, not yellow cakes and uranium, but yellow cake is the type of uranium. The yellow cake article seems to have confused you as did that W's missing donuts article about yellow cake donuts. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 19:58, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Thanks for that Orion Blastar, I am aware of that! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:15, Jul 6
      • Ok uranium is removed and it now says yellow cake instead. No way someone can accuse the article of being serious now. Thanks for the assist. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 20:27, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Delete
  • Delete I believe that this is plagiarism of a real article, more than half of it is copied from the source. ----Mgr. Sir Sonic80 17:34, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Delete - Okay, I don't think this is plagiarism. Copying a joke is plagiarism; copying something meant to be serious and displaying it for laughs, IMHO, is not. Context is everything. On the other hand, there's something about partisan politics that makes people think that articles that boil down to "suck it, libs" or "suck it, neocons" are funny. They aren't. I didn't see any jokes in this whole article - except the Dave Chappelle "yellow cake" joke, which IS plagiarized. --Hyperbole 18:37, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    That sounds exactly like something a liberal would say Rightwing Nutbar Sr. 18:45, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    The Dave Chappelle joke has been removed. Anything else? yellow cake article seems to use the same Dave Chapelle joke though.--Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 18:49, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    But it doesn't say suck it libs, it just says it is weapons grade yellowcake instead of natural yellowcake, and it justifies the Iraq war, and it lampoons the Republican's reactions to the news and makes them sound funny. It takes something serious and makes it funny by modifying it and exaggerating, as most Unnews articles seem to do anyway. It is an example to Conservapedia that our jokes are not always liberal biased, and it seems that many of the non-liberal viewpoint jokes get deleted here. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 18:59, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    Well, it's my opinion that both liberal viewpoints and conservative viewpoints have no place on Uncyclopedia, and that "x viewpoint jokes" is an oxymoron. And just to prove that I apply that principle consistently, you can look at this and this (which nearly got me banned, by the way). I come here to get away from political screeds. --Hyperbole 19:58, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    Kind of hard to avoid here that Liberal viewpoint joke that Bush is Hitler seems to be the basis for the Neocon article. Not to mention the Republican Party and George Dubya Bush articles overuse too many Liberal viewpoints. I could cite more, but I refuse to prove Conservapedia's points. I've tried to write articles that are not based on Liberal viewpoints to disprove their argument. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 20:09, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    Have you tried writing about kittens? Everybody loves kittens. Adorable! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:15, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    There was a time when I tried to discourage people from putting comments in the voting boxs... Oh happy days. Order! Order! I must have order! mine's a pint please governor... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:20, Jul 6
    And you know what those three articles have in common? None of them are funny. The appropriate solution would be to delete or rewrite them - not to try to "balance them out" with more unfunny articles. If you want to try to politically "balance out" something on the Web, try Usenet:alt.politics or something. Yeah, there's a lot of inertia to getting rid of that stuff, because so many people have contributed to it, but it's still the right thing to do. --Hyperbole 20:27, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Comments
  • Uhh... this is less than seven days old, I believe. ~~Heeren ["Meh"] [tecħ] [kurk] [6/07 17:40]
  • True but... Plagiarism shouldn't be tolerated. And then there are the Youtube links, for some reason. And the self-feature. And the lack of UnNews formatting... --SirIsaac 17:42, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • @ Orian Blastar I recently had an article removed for "plagiarism" where I clearly cited my sources, and used my own words, where as on this one, it was directly copied from the article. ----Mgr. Sir Sonic80 17:58, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    • So you are doing this out of malice because you are bitter about your deletion Sonic80? That's not good. Your article was deleted because it was not funny, not because of the plagiarism issue... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 18:05, Jul 6
      • Nobody seems to understand the difference between spite votes, and actual votes. Whenever someone does something to me, and then immediately does something stupid, I point it out, It doesn't mean it is a spite vote, it means that I just don't like hypocrisy. And as for the not funny vs. plagiarism, I seem to recall that it was put on VFD for plagiarism. ----Mgr. Sir Sonic80 19:57, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    • I don't know if this helps, but I read your huffed page (UnNews:Metal Gear Solid 4 is Satan), and would have voted to keep, if I'd noticed it at the time (even thought the page that inspired it is this, which is Poe's Law in action). Of course, I have terrible taste. You should see my haircut. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:43, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Sonic80 But I edited most of the words so that they were different and the bulk of it is not copy and paste but heavily modified with only few original words remaining. I even converted the Youtube embedded videos to links. You mean that even if 90% of the article is my own words that it is still plagiarism? --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 18:07, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
    • Dammit Orion Blastar you are forcing me to actually think. You know I hate doing that! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:04, Jul 6
      • Thinking is good, it is the way of solving the world's problems by using real world solutions. Most colleges teach you not to think, to just believe everything the media tells you and also everything your professor tells you. I was one of the few students smarter than most of my professors who kept asking them questions about inconsistencies and mistakes in their lectures and materials as well as logical fallacies using my analytical mind and deductive reasoning to figure out the truth.

        • Yes, you're much, much smarter than everybody else in the world. Perhaps you'd like a biscuit. --Hyperbole 20:23, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

    • Maybe a redirect would work better... Like you say, this article is poor. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 17:08, Jul 5
