Title bassically explains my question. I'm just curious as to how others view their own work. I'm going to go ahead and presume that people are proud (maybe not overly but at least a little bit) of their work that gets featured. But have you ever written an article you're completely apathetic about, or actively dislike, but everyone else seemed to love?

Personally I have only one feature that falls into this category and that's Snow White (yes I'm still going to link to it) and yet it got three really positive reviews and did as well on VFH as Why?:Am I a Power Ranger? (which I am immensely proud of). So yeah, anyone have anything interesting to say on this topic? Feel free to throw things at me now.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 22:22 30 September 2009

Retrospectively, my article on David Lynch pretty much sucks, yet made it to feature. Conversely, I am really proud of this and this, yet no one seems to like them. On a side note, I've always thought it was odd how things like this happened--authors hating work that's been univerally praised. Apparently, Thomas Pynchon hates The Crying of Lot 49 and Ingmar Bergman was basically indifferent though generally favorable to The Seventh Seal, which is surprising because both are fucking awesome. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 01:58, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
All of my pages are awesome and, like a good cheese, have only improved with age. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:24, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
Can't dissagree with you Modus, and, like all old cheese, you're really stinky.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 08:13 1 October 2009
I'm quite runny, as well. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 13:06, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
My funniest features according to me (ranked from funniest to unfunniest) (linked because they don't get enough exposure anyway and some sun would do them good)
  1. Top Hat - I love Britishisms
  2. HowTo:Stop Being a Nerd
  3. UnMysteries:The Mysterious Affair at the World War Two Convention
  4. Antbortion
  5. Grim Reaper
  6. Toaster - of middling humor
  7. Hippies - my dad finds this hilarious, for some reason
  8. Elevator
  9. The Siege of Bordeaux
  10. Holy Cheese - How on earth did this get featured?
Was it good for you too? Necropaxx (T) {~} 04:40, Oct 1
It was, you're really good at whoreing... What? I'm not paying you extra.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 08:23 1 October 2009
I always really liked your Elevator article, just so you know. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 05:13, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Nope. --THINKER 07:34, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

I hate all of my featured articles. I hate all featured articles. I hate Uncyclopedia. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 08:21 Oct 1 2009
Well obviously, but is there any you hate more than others?    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 08:20 1 October 2009
I hate all of them equally. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 08:23 Oct 1 2009
To be fair, I also hate emc's features. --THINKER 08:35, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
To be even more fair, I hate The Thinker for being everything I could never be. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 08:38 Oct 1 2009
Don't talk that way. We're gunna get that ranch, and god damn it, you will have those rabbits. --THINKER 08:50, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
If I remember my Steinbeck correctly, you shoot me in the back of the head. Unforgivable. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 08:53 Oct 1 2009

I've never been that fond of my nose, but I think hate's a little strong. --UU - natter UU Manhole 11:20, Oct 1

What?    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 12:15 1 October 2009
It's one of my facial features. --UU - natter UU Manhole 12:53, Oct 1
Oh well I hate it too.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 13:04 1 October 2009
Well, if we're going by humor, my facial features make me laugh too. So I guess I like them. Necropaxx (T) {~} 16:16, Oct 1

No not really. None of my articles got featured. I am not proud of any of them, nor do I dislike any of them. I feel that any article can be saved and improved upon if done the right way. I am constantly editing them in the hopes of a VFH and not a VFD. I am trying to learn how to write better so that I can write my own books and help myself get off disability. Due to my mental illness I am socially inept and other sites about writing I get hammered on for having a low social status. Usually to the point that I am told to kill myself or run off the forum or whatever. That doesn't happen here because Uncyclopedia is a different environment. I am tolerated here, but my works never reach the VFH level because I guess I am a struggling writer who hasn't perfected his writing yet. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 20:45, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations: you've been cast as Tiny Tim in "A THINKER Christmas Carol." --THINKER 05:21, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Aren't all the characters in your version Tim? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:47, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Well comparatively, yes. But not everyone is as literally handicapped. --THINKER 05:53, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
As long as I am not Helen Keller. :) --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 17:22, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Filial Piety, probably. Also, I am going to mention Hodgepodge vis-a-vis Ljlego. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 09:11, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Guinness Brewmasters. Not my finest moment. But the propaganda photoshop on the page, I still love that. ~ Tophatsig 3/10/2009 @ 00:39

I tend to go through a phase with all my features where I hate them, normally about a month or so after they are featured. Having focussed on making them good for so long, when they're finished I start to only see the bad. Rafael Nadal went through a particularly long period of loathing and at the moment it's Disorganised crime's turn. The phase passes though. And it still doesn't stop me voting for them in top three of the month. I don't particularly hate my aristocrats article, but it frustrates me, because if it wasn't such a pain in the arse to edit, I'd make a lot of improvements to it. I also sort of resent the fact that this short gimmicky imperfect thing is my most successful vote-winning article, when I've written much better stuff with less eye-catching titles. -- 15Mickey20 (talk to Mickey)  21:18, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

I love all of my articles like my children. Fussy sometimes. Disobedient, maybe, but I still love them. The closest one I come to "hating" is Cyanide. I can think of about 5 of my unfeatured articles that I think are better (including my version of Peyton Manning, before it was redone as essentially the same joke only much better written and featured as a rewrite).--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 15:22, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

Thou is my only article that got in the top three, and it is by far my worst feature. <whore> Some of my other, non-featured, stuff is much better. </whore> Who wants pie? Woody On Fire! Wood burningTalking Woody Stalking Woody 22:05, October 5, 2009 (UTC)

hear hear

I don't even have a feature to hate. Staircase CUNt 18:56, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

There, there. If you believe in yourself, it'll happen. One day. Necropaxx (T) {~} 01:36, Oct 5
Be all Jedi on it. You've got to use the Force or some shit. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:27, October 5, 2009 (UTC)
Modus is trying to mislead you -- don't use some shit. It will smell bad and you could get nasty infections.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 20:37 5 October 2009
Orian is trying to mislead you. It's okay to go front to back, just not the other way around. (If you don't know what that means, ask your parents. Be prepared for stammering and blushing) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:06, October 5, 2009 (UTC)
The sexual innuendo is trying to mislead you. Modusoperandi and Orian57 are plotting world domination through some shit and sex operations.-Almost Sir Random Crap
Dibs on sex operations! I have the experience. I worked Sex Ops in Bosnia. Hollywood eventually fictionalized it as Behind Enemy Loins. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:17, October 5, 2009 (UTC)
Hollywood is a bitch. Now go rule the world, just see my article for help.-Almost Sir Random Crap

Personally

I think UnNews:Presidential candidates devote all remaining funds to one voter is pretty much shit. I mean, it was a pity political observation that many people had had before - including one who wrote an entire fucking Kevin Costner movie about it. Yeah. I think that article went to feature because it was well-timed and because it was hard to find anyone writing about the election who wasn't being a partisan dick. Not because it was funny or good.
