Forums: Index > Village Dump > Proposal: Reaching the 30,000 articles

Like we know, Uncyclopedia is frozen at 25,000 while the Brazophonic Uncyc grows 1,000 articles by month.

To not stay behind them we must take the following measures:

  • Stop being so exigent with the quality of articles and accept stubs with at least seven lines of text.
  • Stop being xenophobic and accept articles about foreign celebrities like Xuxa and Chespirito (if Wikipedia has Xuxa and Chespirito, why Uncyclopedia cannot?)
  • Stop being so paranoic with CV (Copyright Violation) and accept translations from other uncycs (if you do not know, 50% of Desciclopedia's articles are translations from Uncyclopedia and Inciclopedia)

Taking these measures we will grow to 30,000 articles before june of this year HelderOA 20:56, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

And quantity is better than quality? Will we be "better" if we have 30000 unamusing stubs? Also, there was never an issue with translating from other Uncyclopedias. This is why the foreign office is here. ~Jewriken.GIF 21:02, January 22, 2010 (UTC)
Why must one assume stubs are unamusing? I know a guy who knows a guy with no arms and no legs that would kick your ass if he heard you say that.  Avast Matey!!! Happytimes are here!* Happytimes.gif (talk) (stalk) Π   ~ Xkey280 ~  23 Jan 2010 ~ 02:24 (UTC)
We'd gladly accept an article about Xuxa. Apparently, the reason it was deleted was that the article was written by a twelve-year-old and was entirely about Xuxa's fictional, but profitable, vagina-related exploits. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 23:50, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

If anything, we should to move VFD voting up to 3000 articles at a time. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 21:29, Jan. 22, 2010

A better proposal

Let's delete the whole timeline, and then create a script to generate sequentially-numbered articles from 1 to 3,200,000. They will read, simply, "3 is a prime number." or "6 is not a prime number." After that's all done, we'll have 3,225,000 articles, making us the world's largest wiki. Ta-da! Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 23:43, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Fine. They could read "3 is a gay prime number." or "6 is not a faggy prime number." Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 23:51, January 22, 2010 (UTC)
That'd work I guess. Let's do this shit! -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN23:53, 22 Jan

A worse proposal

Pie a la mode

Multiply by 30,000

I wish I could say quality over quantity, but that's ironic because it's Uncyclopedia. If you really think about it, both goals are unachievable. We will never have 30,000 articles, nor will we ever have quality articles. So I make a motion that we aim for something more achievable, like more pie. Let's get 30,000 pies. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 00:39 Jan 23 2010

Pi pie

I do like pi... -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN14:28, 23 Jan

If quantity over quality was an issue then we would keep 1,000 versions of Grand Theft Auto which I helped to vote to oblivion in the VFD Interview Basement. Perhaps it wasn't 1,000 but certainly felt like it going through them. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:37, January 23, 2010 (UTC)
If we're going for pie then we may as well turn it into a pie fight. That way we could contact Guinness World Records and easily win the record for largest number of pies thrown in a pie fight. The current record is only 1,200, set a couple of weeks ago. Sequence 02:14, January 30, 2010 (UTC)
