Perhaps we should sort that out. Actually agree on something, eh? Might as well do something, as the place is brimming with crap as it is, most folks seemingly afraid to touch it... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy


Options

Some overlap more than others, but... these have been what I've seen so far. I do hope there are others/more... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy

  • Symbol against vote Against. probably not even possible. --Mn-z 04:50, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'm going to remove this option as we had numerous votes in the past weather to semi protect the whole site or not, always votes down and this essentially does that (even though for one space). Also,per Mnz, not sure it can be done. ~Jewriken.GIF 07:46, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah! So why are you saying utter nonsense MNz?! we're still not doing it though ~Jewriken.GIF 18:33, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Please note the use of the word "probably". For those of you who aren't native English speakers, when the word "probably" is used before a statement of fact, it means that the speaker/writer admits he is not fully sure the following assertion of fact is true. Irregardless, its still a bad idea. --Mn-z 22:30, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Hide the edit button, remove/hide the pages on how to make new ones, etc

Go through and delete the cruft

VFD's a-waiting, mon. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:00, 17 December 2010

  • Symbol for vote For. I will qvfd, ugly, or deadend the pages that are not optimal.--Poiz,Teh zork master!!!! 14:32, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

Create a console

Kids aren't into text based games anymore. They like explosions and CGI cutscenes. It's time Uncyclopedia enters the world of 7th generation console gaming and designs something to compete with the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 11:02 Dec 18 2010

Here's a link to an extensive discussion from earlier this year

I think the approach of cleaning up and improving is still the better option. I also volunteer to become the pet admin for the space, so if anyone sees a load of crap being created there drop me a line and I'll remove it. As for removal of current articles, VFD should be the way to deal with those. ~Jewriken.GIF 08:15, December 18, 2010 (UTC)

I'll qvfd, ugly, or deadend the pages that are not optimal(total stub, no header, and no continue link, respectively(I get plusses for that)).--Poiz,Teh zork master!!!! 14:30, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
You'll make sure you do that for NEW pages. OLD pages go to VFD. And deadend pages get marked as deadend only if they are, in fact, deadend. ~Jewriken.GIF 15:44, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Qvfd is also for unfunny ultrastubs(like a page that is blank or has "lolol" as it's only content)--Poiz,Teh zork master!!!! 16:11, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
Poiz, how about you stop arguing with people who have been here years longer than you about how the place works and... I dunno, do something productive? Go vote on VFH and VFD, or something. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:27, 18 December 2010
but i wikll stil qvfd total redstubcrap--Poiz,Teh zork master!!!! 18:18, December 18, 2010 (UTC)
