A wee while ago I wrote a not-terribly-good UnNews article which had an ICU tag placed on it a few hours later. This was quite deserved but rather pointless since I didn't notice the tag until the following day, by which time it was unlikely to be looked at by anyone again. In the mean time the article looked even worse than it did already since it had a great big maintenance tag stuck across the top. So, I propose that if someone thinks an UnNews article is not up to scratch they should either:

1. Improve the article themselves

2. Remove the date from the article so it is no longer linked to the front page and then put a maintenance tag on it.

Anyone in favour or opposed? Does nobody care?

  • Dunno about the whole ICU thing but...if what you are writing doesn't need to be out "right now", try writing it under your userpage (like User:Kelpan\Unnewsstoryofsomekind). Then, when it's done, bump it out to the UnNews place. This will minimize the chance of ICU, and the glares of friends and neighbours that follow. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:16, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

This wasn't supposed to be a thread specific to this example. I was just referring to the many articles which get put on UnNews which are not really up to scratch and your ways of dealing with them. --Kelpan 15:51, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I always thought it was quite bad that something could be on the front page, often with a picture too, and still be absolute crap. Not that I've really seen this happen - do people take such links away when they ICU UnNews stories? As for the never-to-be-seen-again thing, as Modus didn't quite say, it can always be fixed and redated to a few days later when it's better. --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 18:36, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
