Okay, fellows, this time I'm not proposing a nano-bio-nuclear-fusion change. It's just that some articles keep on going into and back from VFD. So I'm just suggesting admins to paste the VFD table to kept articles' talk pages, as they do with Pee Review. This way, we would know beforehand that the article in question was already nominated to VFD and also why it survived. -- herr doktor needsAraygun Rocket [scream!] 18:47, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Hey! I seem to agree with you! Although "+VFD" and "-VFD" should appear in the history for the pages in question, people probably forget, sometimes! I'm trying to sound excited today! It says "Sound excited" in today's square on my calendar! I can't wait for Tuesday! It says "Tuesday"! Woo! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:19, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
That is a tactic people use to get an article deleted. If it is not deleted in the first VFD entry, they keep adding it back until they get enough votes to delete it. Sort of like giving someone the same trial over and over again until they are found guilty, even if they are found innocent several times. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 19:37, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes, it's a good idea. It might not work (I'm not sure I bother to check talk pages for everything I VFD), but it's worth a try. Although how much it'll get stuck to I don't know - admins are people too, and can't be bothered with this sort of thing any more than the rest of us... If something comes up a second time on VFD though, this should definitely happen. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 19:58, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
It's easier just taking a quick peep at the talk page than checking through the whole page's history. Also, as most of stuff nominated to our death row find an exit through the morgue, it's not such a big volume of additional work. -- herr doktor needsAraygun Rocket [scream!] 20:02, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
We could make a template like Wikipedia:Template:Oldafdfull to link to the archive section. That would take up less space on talk pages. Alksubsig.gifAlksub - VFH CM WA RV {talk} 22:08, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
As "they do with pee review". It's all me baby. It does sound like a good idea, but a lot of work. Alksub's idea is a good one. —Braydie 22:10, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. Hey, this is actually a new idea that hasn't resulted in massive arguments. What is the world coming to? Next thing you know we'll all be living in peace and harmony, and what'll we do for entertainment then? --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 23:42, 12 May 2007 (UTC)
No arguments? Hmm, well...I hate this idea. Well, not really, but just pretend I do to help balance the space-time continuum. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 02:45, 13 May 2007 (UTC)
