Note: This topic has been unedited for 1551 days. It is considered archived - the discussion is over. Do not add to unless it really needs a response.

And not just on the events front (i.e. has User:Nintendorulez been unbanned?), although I'm interested in that too. Since I've left, I've been checking back periodically, and article quality seems to have plummeted. For example, look at today's "On This Day". That stuff's ED-grade. Even some of the featured articles have been two-year-oldish. What gives? Do we need some kind of decrapification drive? I'm not just talking about some excess of NRV's (or ICU's or whatever the hell kind of name you're calling them these days.) I mean the front page, the supposed cream of the crop. How? And why? And how can we fix it? I have some free time this week, so I'll do what I can, but... damn. goshzillacorrespondence 05:23, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

I joined in April '07. Sorry, my bad. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 05:26, Feb 17
You're mistaken. This only happens when Mhaille's articles get featured. It's like a 24-hour wikiapocalypse. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 05:28, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
I also only joined in april, But
  1. Nintendorulez never got unbaned
  2. we had another Fisher Price type article, actually several
  3. the VFH format has changed dramaticly
  4. V week and Conservation Week to try and decrease the crap:good ratio better.
Uh... yea. other stuff too but I'm too lazy to look it up. --Lieutenant THEDUDEMAN Dude ... Totally UOTM KUN GotA F@H 05:33, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Thank god you're back and brought this up, we haven't had a forum topic about article quality for at least ten minutes. If only more people made forum topics about article quality, the problem would fix itself, right? Also, welcome back! Spang talk 05:38, 17 Feb 2008

Seriously. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 05:45, Feb 17

Goshzilla, please tell me you didn't come back just to complain... —Hinoa talk.kun 05:49, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

No. I came back to complain, vote "no" on VFH, vote "yes" on VFH, do some scathing (but fair) reviews using that brand new template on PeeReview, and maybe even write some funny crap of my own. goshzillacorrespondence 13:55, 17 February 2008 (UTC)
Really? 'Cause so far all you've done is complain. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 14:51, Feb 17
What did you miss? Well, one time, I left a non sequitur on a Forum. Then I wrote a page. Ooo! I 'chopped a picture, too. Woo! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:22, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Let's see. Since you left, I've written five articles, four of them were crap, and one was fixed up by The_Thinker. We've had three dozen forum topics about the drop in article quality. Finally, the Village Idiot was nommed for oppage, which which was when we jumped the shark, to me. Of course, we jumped the shark at least four dozen times, by now, so it's no big deal at this point. I mean, at SeaWorld, they do that on a daily basis now, don't they? I just hope I don't start rambling...--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 21:51, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

Everyone is kidding of course, what really happened was News Corp. buys Uncyclomedia Foundation as the admins here sold their souls to Rupert Murdock and everyone converted over to the Republican party and loves George W. Bush now. Of course that meant a lot of changes here on Uncyclopedia. Mostly we make fun of left-wingers and praise Neocons and take orders from the New World Order, even those members not even in the USA. Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity sort of work as an oversight committee here as well as a lot of others from Fox News to make sure that the admins and members stay fair and balanced. --Lt.

I have the answer!

It's because of the picture on the "In the news" section. Not only do I have no clue what story it relates to, it's really unprofessional-looking! Just change the picture to something better, and everything will be like the good old days! goshzillacorrespondence 21:18, 18 February 2008 (UTC)
