While we're talking about reworking our policies and rules could we also discuss putting up a statement of intent or purpose. Something that says that we're a community driven encyclopedia, something that says we focus on satire and comedy and something that says we're about the real world. --Sir gwax (talk) Signuke 16:55, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

"We are a community driven encyclopedia about the real world that focuses on satire and comedy." --Sir Volte KUN Talk (+S NS CM Bur. VFP VFH) 19:14, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
I'm wondering what the reference to the "real world" is aiming at in terms of what is or isn't Uncyclopedia content. What is meant by the expression "real world" and what type of articles are intended to be excluded through the use of that requirement? Thanks. --Ogopogo 19:39, 4 February 2006 (UTC)
It's meant so that the next time someone posts an article about a fantasy world and I put it up on VFD saying that it's about a fantasy world, I'll have something to back me up (this happens semi-regularly). --Sir gwax (talk) Signuke 19:30, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
That's OK if it's funny. The problem is usually of course that it isn't - shirley that's enough reason for a VFD? - David Gerard 09:00, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

"While recognizing that any statement of purpose will be disemboweled, beheaded, burned, and drowned before being run over by Bulldozers of Contentiousness, we aim to write parody articles." Oh, never mind. It'll never go.----OEJ 20:13, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

What, the "misinformation and utter lies" line isn't enough? Granted, it's kinda buried in the About page right now, but I think it sums us up as good as any. --Algorithm (talk) 23:27, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

I think "Be funny and not just stupid" is all it needs - David Gerard 00:17, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
