We just makes so many contributions to vfd. I can't remember a single vfd where he hasn't voted.--Small_Pineapple2.png» >ZEROTROUSERS!!! EAT ME!!!! CRAZY PERSON! SMELLY!!! ILLOGIC, BEHOLD!!!!~» 07:47, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Isn't semiprotection wonderful, kids? I'm going to take a guess and say that your account's too new, but that doesn't really make sense. You've had this account for over three days; you should be able to edit the page. If not, then something's fouled up. —Major Sir Hinoa prepare for troublemake it double? 09:47, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

How?

Maybe I'm really slow, or out of it today... but I somehow missed... how do I nominate something to be voted for deletion? This is the article I'd like to do that: Gerard Way. Just because its too random to be funny. Like they were trying WAYYY too hard. AhhDiddums 03:48, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Nevermind, took care of it -AhhDiddums 04:08, 4 January 2007 (UTC)

No edit etc

Well I VFD' Chile but I can't edit this page to start the voting process. At least until now, from the discussion page of the article it seems that the majority wants to delete it or blank it.--Guruclef 04:36, 29 November 2006 (UTC)User:guruclef

Sign here if you got here if you were trying to look for the VFD from a series of unfortunate events.

Help there is no edit button/link

An article I wrote has been put up on VFD, I'd like to discuss it, I can't find an edit button on the project page to contribute anything. I've noticed I'm not the only one. Also, is that the right place or should it go in the discussion on the article itself? Timeblind

  • Log in first, then you will see the edit tab. (Also, please use the individual section edit headings). Goshzilla 21:37, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

Threatening

Is there really a need to threat every single person that mistakenly places something on VFD that should have been NRV'd or such? The new deletion policy is good, but it's also long and you can't expect everyone to read it and konw it well, at least not by now that it's still new. Besides, dismissing the nomnations (without the threats) is enough, people who nominates against the policy will just get bored of getting their nominations dismissed and would just stop nominating or, even better, follow the policy. Can we just make a template that says something like "Nomination dismissed. Please read the deletion policy. Article now tagged with NRV/fix/QVFD/whatever." Well, it's more or less what Gwax has been writing but without the unpleasent and unnecessary threats. And I would take down the threat highlighted in red at the beggining as well.--Rataube 13:38, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

I've been friendly in the past and it just doesn't work. The truth is, at this point, my patience has run out. If someone wants to come in and take over for me, then they can run VFD however they want but until people stop making my life difficult, I'm not going to go easy on them. --Sir gwax (talk) Signuke 19:57, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
Ah, the beatings will continue until the moral improves. Dear one, if you are burned out then step aside and at least take a vacation by handing over the reigns to someone else for a short period of time. Faster Pussycat Kill Kill 21:05, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
Sorry to hear that, I understund your position, must be really annoying. You really need a break, read and write some articles, enjoy, ask for a substitute.--Rataube 23:24, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
Sometimes the only way to improve morale is to shoot all the unhappy people. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 03:22, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

hiatus?!

Great! Just great! How am I supposed to rampage now?! This is the one place I could vent my daily frustration!! Now I'm sad... --PiratehattieCap'n SimzorzAr, Matey!19:36, 3 April 2006 (UTC)

QVFD? IRC? Here? The Dump? I dunno... you could just save all the rage for later. —Hinoa KUN (talk) 19:44, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Sounds good to me. Rage is better aged (proverb). Actually, I'm glad to see this improve-instead-of-shoot tactic. It's something I started doing not long before VFD was shut down. It's a good policy, and I'd be rather pleased if it continued after VFD reopens. --PiratehattieCap'n SimzorzAr, Matey!20:19, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

how do i edit the deletion page? there is no button

You need to register (it is as easy as choosing a name and password). --Splaka 04:41, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
I have an account, and I can't edit the VFD page. All I can do is "view source". WTH? -- FunkSoulBrother
The way it works is you have to wait about 3 days before you are "autoconfirmed", that is you have not been blocked in a short period so the MediaWiki software does not believe you to be a vandal, otherwise somebodyu could just create an account and blank the page. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 16:45, 15 June 2006 (UTC)

Linkage?

Just a question: Should there be links to Pages for deletion/clones, Pages for deletion/templates and Pages for deletion/unusedimages? I'm surprised there's not. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 15:38, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

There really should be, yeah. I'll pop them in to incide a discussion about it here. --Splaka 05:48, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

No edit.

I just VFD'd this article and I can't seem to get the edit button on the VFD page to come. Please help. Here's the link to it.

The George Encounters

Thanks. --Cray Z. 06:57, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

You have to edit VFD and list the article there first... ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 07:05, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

What I mean is that I can't see the edit button for the "Pages for deletion section". Help!!!.... --Cray Z. 07:11, 11 June 2006 (UTC)

I've added it in for you, so look and see where it is, press the '[edit]' by the side, and type your vote under mine. Do you get it now?
~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 07:34, 11 June 2006 (UTC)


Wikipedia the Truth!

I consider that you have to delete this page, because I consider that is good unless the fact that it is a plagiarism of the article Wikipedia, has the same sections, the same jokes, the same images , only changes a few things, some templates and some words--User:Atenea26 14:20, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Well wikipedia doesn't have copyright so :p.--Small_Pineapple2.png» >ZEROTROUSERS!!! EAT ME!!!! CRAZY PERSON! SMELLY!!! ILLOGIC, BEHOLD!!!!~» 09:47, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Well, that's a blast from the past. That comment was posted six months ago, and the article's been nuked. Why are we dragging this up again? —Major Sir Hinoa prepare for troublemake it double? 09:48, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
Necrophilia, maybe? --AAA! (AAAA) 06:41, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

Edit not available to this user on the project VFD page

Ok. I'm new around here and got all of a lather about saying how unfunny I agreed the Aufstralia article is. So I registered and all and I find that the edit function is protected. I hope it's ok if I register a "delete" vote here instead. No time to hang around for a reply. I did, however, take the time to bung a NRD stamp on one of the Australia articles, Westralia, linked to from the Aufstralia page. Full of more silly garbage - but more importantly, linked to by many other Australian articles. Not a good look at all for a comedy site. I've been really entertained by much else of Uncyclopedia and these racist/homophobic rants are disappointing to stumble on. Thedarky 08:20, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

The project page is locked so that only registered users can edit it. Since you look like a registered user to me, you should be able to edit it. A vote here doesn't count, so if you want to vote, head over there.
If you're having issues editing pages, perhaps you want to wait a week or two and get some practice editing non-critical pages before you hit the project page. I tend to ban people for messing up the VFD page. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 15:09, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Semiprotected?

Hi, I'm trying to nominate Kross for deletion, but I think my account's too new. The page started out on Wikipedia as an attack against an editor over there, but it was speedied, so the editor recreated it here. It's currently blanked, but in the history you can see it's what I believe you Uncyclopedians call 'slandanity'. Can someone else nominate it, pretty please? -- Deni 07:03, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

It has been put in QuickVFD, which is where slandanity and other pages that violate UN:VAIN get deleted without requiring voting. It will be deleted soon.
VFD is for older articles the aren't funny, as described in the deletion policy.
Also, thanks for undoing IncredibleJake's other edits. --Sbluen 07:46, 1 September 2006 (UTC)
Okay, thanks! -- Deni 14:03, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

What's with the no love for Darth?

  • Why not nominate all the Jesii, or all the xzillas? or get rid of all the mexicans? maybe next you can lead a progrom against the Jews... you're a stone racist... yes... feed off of the anger... it is strong inside you... it gives you power... --Mindsunwound: (F@H) Suppository Sickness Pup Man Babies 2cents.PNG 22:12, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Because I don't nominate. If you would like, feel free to nominate the Jesii and xzillas, for I will delete them all too. As well as the Mexicans and the Jews. I'm an equal-opportunity deletor. No mercy. No remorse. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 22:19, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh... well you're just carrying out what the voters wanted... It's the nominator I'm miffed at... --Mindsunwound: (F@H) Suppository Sickness Pup Man Babies 2cents.PNG 22:29, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Both Darth Hitler, and Darth Cow had more than twice the keep votes than delete votes, and both were still huffed? that makes no sense! --Mindsunwound: (F@H) Suppository Sickness Pup Man Babies 2cents.PNG 22:15, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Must be a counting error. Perhaps you are under the assumption that "rewrite" means "keep". It does not. Either rewrite it yourself, or don't bother voting. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 22:19, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Of course, if a page gets rewritten, it should probably get the votes wiped so that people can re-vote on it. Or I could just be a bastard and delete anything that was linked to the former Template:Darth. Humm...sounds like me. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 22:28, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
True enough... but even so... Darth hitler and Darth Cow did have some good chuckles... it's too bad those two in particular didn't survive... --Mindsunwound: (F@H) Suppository Sickness Pup Man Babies 2cents.PNG 22:29, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
The issue is that 95% of the pages people vote "rewrite" on never get rewritten, and just end up back on VFD a month or two later. I'd much rather see someone take a crappy page under their wing and rewrite it than submit it to VFD. If they had some good chuckles - good! Take that and make a real killer of a page. As it was the rewrites (no offense to the person who rewrote them) didn't really add much to the already poor articles. If you'd like, get some like-minded friends together and make a nice rewrite up.
We've both got our parts to play in keeping the "gold-to-shit ratio" high - I delete the shit. You are more than encouraged to add to the gold. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 23:43, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
You huffed Cow and Hitler? The vote was 'rewrite. they were rewritten! It was written right there? Is there something I am missing here? I see you standing there with a pail full of stupid and a shit eating grin... yeah i'm talking to you famine. --Darkfred 03:58, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
Calm down now. Sometimes things on the VFD are rewritten, but still get deleted for the following reasons:
  1. The rewrite still sucked, and did little to improve sections that got the article VFDed in the first place.
  2. If it's in the process of being rewritten, an administrator will tend to check the current state of the article. If it hasn't been rewritten yet or doesn't seem to have much improvement (it's given some time to be revised), it'll end up getting deleted because it doesn't need to sit on the VFD, taking up space when it can be resubmitted after its deletion with a much better version (the "rewritten" version; we have a flow here on the VFD).
  3. The administrator(s) paid little or no attention to the discussion section; this happens a lot, and as a result the rewrites don't make it in time. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 23:23, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
I will admit that cow was still stupid. But hitler was actually funny and everyone who voted after the rewrite liked it. The problem here is not The problem here is that the vote was NOT DELETE. The pages were put up wholesale, and even before the rewrite were better than 90% of the crap on this site. I see this a less a comment on the system and more a comment on the type of people who want to be administrators. The only real power they have is deletion so it attracts article psychopaths. --Darkfred 00:55, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

If you want, you can leave a comment stating that in the event of deletion you'd like it moved to your user space to work on in your own time. Then when it gets deleted you can get about the task of rewriting until it's good enough to put back into the article namespace. Spang talk 01:34, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Yes that would be great, but the admin simply did not read the VFD so it wouldn't have worked. I did ask another admin to undelete it to my user space. --Darkfred 17:18, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Mastadon

Mastadun, like many articles in your competitor's Universal Encyclopedia (Wickihpu), simply suffered from the lack of an expert's input. There are few competent elephant mammologists who have time left to offer free work to endeavors such as this after hauling 37,000 pounds of bones up from the basement to their lab. In addition, it suffered, like Wicki-poop, from an excess of input from a person who apparently actually liked and had listened to the band, Mastingdun. The article will be fine, with a little copyediting, some pictures, a complete rewrite, and a quote by world famus mammoth hunter IckyPoop about the mammoth found with the erection.

Bastions in place?

Why? I want to vote. John Reaves 12:06, 15 January 2007 (UTC)

WTF?!

Why is the page uneditable? Blueray 03:52, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

/me scratched forehead. It's semi-protected, I think. You need an account that's a few days old to edit the page. Or, I'm wrong. One of the two. A crapshoot, really. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:14, 7 April 2007 (UTC)
Yeah I am also getting this problem. I've had this account for about a week, and haven't even dreamed of deleting anything yet.
Could somebody do it for me? The article is "Runescape Weapons", and it just blows to high heaven.

Copy/paste votes?

Noticed that somebody pasted the following:

  • 'Delete Any article here has gone too far - nice to use copy/paste for a while Guutog 15:59, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

This was pasted on votes for every entry, including for articles already deleted hours back. Clearly he hasn't even looked at them. Does a vote like that still count?--220.238.175.38 19:31, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Yeah, I noticed that too. I've told on talk page. —Braydie 19:39, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

In case anyone cared...

I made a Userbox for VFD editors... Here's the code: {{User:Capercorn/User VFD}} Feel free to use it all you like!

I care. Good though. —– Sir Hv » | Talk | Contribs | KUN | UotM | RotM | VFH | Kidney | 12/04 22:14
Yay - thank you Capercorn, I shall go and add it to my userboxbox right away. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 23:00, 12 April 2007 (UTC)

Suggested Changes to VFD template

I think that the Giant "X" in the template should be replaced by
NRV
This
. Capercorn 10:57, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
I believe that the entire thing should be replaced by this disturbing picture of Doug Henning. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:36, 2 May 2007 (UTC)
Thats not disturbing, thats hot. Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 03:20, 02 May 2007

Substitutable template

I created Template:VFDTable for users who hate selecting text for every nomination. Does anyone like this idea? The template will need protection. Alksubsig.gifAlksub - VFH CM WA RV {talk} 19:22, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

It would still need to be put into the comment bit of the page as the normal table is to avoid confusing people though, wouldn't it? --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:51, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Suggestion: Mark the survivors

What about pasting the VFD discussion to surviving articles' talk pages? This way we would know if an article was already here once and avoid re-nominating it. Also, I guess it's an important part of the article's history. -- herr doktor needsAcell Rocket [scream!] 17:43, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Thats probably a good idea but bags not being to one to have to do that :( ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 10:47, 12 May 2007

The Chile Article

As far as I see it, it is just horrible. And the earlier versions are just as dumb. I am Chilean and I'm sad to say the Chile article should be deleted or blanked. Juggler 23:23, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

I stand before the Common gates but, lo! they open not for me.
