Note: This topic has been unedited for 2659 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.
Not a dream! Not a hoax! Not an imaginary story! The nurturing mother of some of Uncyclopedia's strangest articles, known as BJAODN, has been slain!

Now, before it's too late - let us link arms and start trawling through the Google cache in search of worthwhile content in need of refuge under Uncyclopedia's weird roof, before it all disappears forever![Or until it's voted back into existence sometime next Monday] --L 17:16, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Man, those guys have no sense of humour. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:35, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

That doesn't work for any BJAODN archives beyond 22. See:http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Valley_of_the_Bad_Jokes_and_Other_Deleted_Nonsense --L 07:43, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

They kept the main BJAODN page, but burned through the subpages. 71.34.103.198 22:49, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

I wish they kept them I loved reading through them. --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 03:01, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

It's Not Theft if it's Free

If someone's feeling ambitious, I'd totally recommend yoinking this article. It's ready-made for us, and GNU-Free! Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 05/30 22:26

Wow someone worked really hard on that! I'd feel bad sporking it without their permission. Perhaps someone with a wikipedia account could invite them to put it up here very nicely? ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 10:32, 30 May 2007
I've already started sporking it. It was in mainspace, so no permission needed. Alksubsig.gifAlksub - VFH CM WA RV {talk} 22:43, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
Yeah I know its not needed I just meant that I'd personally feel bad not getting the author's permission, just because they obviously spent so long on it :) Thats all! <3 ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 11:18, 30 May 2007
Yeah, well Wikipedia didn't feel bad deleting it! It's like rescuing a poor abandoned animal to a loving home. Although technically it'd need to link back to the wikipedia article to comply with the GFDL, I'm pretty sure that here, unlike wikipedia, nobody cares. Spang talk 11:39, 30 May 2007
I care!!! /me 's heart bleeds. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 01:54, 31 May 2007
Well, just catch it in something, and I'll do something with it later. God, I practically live off that shit... Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 05/31 02:12
Eeeeep! Famine's a vampire!!! /me goes hunting for an angry mob, a wooden stake and some holy water. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 03:00, 31 May 2007
Uhh... will a flamethrower work? --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 03:01, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Guys, the dude's name is Famine. What did you think he ate?--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 03:35, 31 May 2007 (UTC)--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 03:35, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

I thought maybe he ate everyone else's food... that or acorns. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 04:21, 31 May 2007
Hehe - Famine's a heffalump! Or is that a woozle? --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 09:34, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

There's not really any point in nicking the Upper Peninsula War article. It's one of the few BJAODN pages that was retained, owing to attribution. Plus, all it contains is non-factual information. --L 06:17, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

I know of some pals who sporked BJAODN - the vast majority of the pages. (There were but a few that weren't on cache, including "57 Varieties of Bad Jokes and Other Deleted Nonsense".) Badjonica 09:42, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

List of recently-created articles made from deleted bad jokes

If we're taking material from Wikipedia I'm opposed to inserting it into Uncyc's main article space, which should be preserved for original content. Think about if we actively scoured the web for comedic material - even if we gussied them up a bit, eventually we'd just be a repository rather than a place for creativity. If people are intent on saving BJAODN I suggest we create a separate section of the site and list the content there on subpages, like Wikipedia did previously. —rc (t) 16:07, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Well, considering what we've already got in the way of not-so-original content, you may be a bit late in your pronouncements. Besides, the point of saving these bad jokes is that nowadays they aren't on Wikipedia. --L 03:51, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

BJAODN now up for deletion

It's true, soon it may be gone forever. Noooo! -- Hindleyite Converse 12:58, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Ask for the deleted subpages' edit histories and the pages themselves, please

I hope you don't mind pitching a bit of GDFL material onto CC teritory - but if you can attribute those BJAODN upon getting them, please do so. 204.52.215.107 00:08, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Vote keep, and call Jimbo Wales

Do it! It's gneomI 12:28, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Wikipedia has an authoritarian cabal

It may not exist but it does on wikipedia.--Scott 13:24, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Trust me it does exist. There wouldn't be any smoke if there was no fire. It's gneomI 13:33, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Agreed. Although I doubt that Jimbo is part of it. Badjonica 14:04, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Unconfirmed spork rumors

I have heard rumors of folks sporking the vast majority of BJAODN from the Google caches, but I have been a bit busy myself and thus unable to spork. They also claim that the sporked documents can be a tad unweildly. Badjonica 13:58, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

I admit to sockpuppeting as Badjonica in order to promote a wiki. I apologize. Rickyrab 17:54, 3 June 2007 (UTC)

Not deleted

The keep votes won, finally, but it seems they can't seem to restore the page. But when I saw the talk page, there's an interesting link to web.archive or something like that. Check this out. Also, I want to stalk this talk page for the rest of my life, anyone wants to join? He's the one who deleted that stuff. It's gneomI 14:44, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

mementia

The Idea of mementia is in response to RC's suggestion of a place to put all the reworked memes that made it into Uncyclopedia. It'll be a place where people can work on translating jokes from the internet into an Uncyclopedic format. It'd be a seperate category, like how in the Academy Awards they have a screenplay award for best original work and best adapted screenplay. What do you guys think? It'd be a nice place for the great works that have made it onto Uncyclopedia despite their meme beginnings (Flying Spaghetti Monster, anyone?), and could be a place where innovation of that sort could be worked on in the future.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 16:45, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

Google? pah

Don't worry about Google archives, any Wikipedia admin can recover the text if someone wants it (depending on why it's been deleted an all). DG and I are both admins there, it's gotta be of some use... -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 11:40, 7 June 2007 (UTC)
