Limited-use Templates

Template:Skeith

Barely used, unfunny, nonsensical. I suggest that we send this template 6 feet under. -- Xoid 01:16, 20 March 2006 (UTC)

Template:Made up numbers and Template:Science3

are both templates with 0 humor and limited use. While Template:Made up numbers has a fair amount of linkage, the articles it is in are pretty stubby, and candidates for VFD themselves. I'm currently (ok, permenantly) on an excessive quoting and template rampage. I'm using up my remaining quota of guilt for this month by VFDing these instead of deleting them on sight.

Clean-- Anything to trim out the older/newer unused templates. Just be wary of anything starting with "Lang" ^_^ --Splaka 01:43, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • Comment It should probably be worth mentioning there's more then a few (these two included) which aren't listed in Templates. While I'm not sure about the usage of these particular templates, it should probably be taken into account that some templates may be barely used simply because they're not listed. MadMax 21:38, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Ok, I finally found where it was that people decided to kill my entries. I think I have a right to be furious since a Vfd tage was never added to any of the articles and I was never informed, but I won't be.

Anyways, it was said that:

"While Template:Made up numbers has a fair amount of linkage, the articles it is in are pretty stubby, and candidates for VFD themselves."

Which I think is a ridiculus argument. (A) I was still working on the series of articles. (B) They weren't especially stubby. Plus, even if they were "stubs" take a look at some of the alphabet articles from Template:alphabet. Plenty are even more stubby.

So, I guess the only argument left is that the articles weren't funny. I can't say much to that, it's a matter of opinion, but I liked them.

Overall, I would at least like to at least be informed before my articles are deleted. I could at least have saved them an worked on them myself and maybe added the articles again later.

Go ahead and delete Brazillion too. --neoEva88 20:46, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

I wasn't going to delete that right yet because it was under construction. But I sure can if you'd like me to. Just add it to QVFD. As for the Alphabet template, I randomly clicked on ~, 1, Q, and W and they were all a page to a page and a half long. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 20:57, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)


Template:Restaurant-stub

Delete. We already have catstub, randomstub and countless other stub templates. --Carlb 03:42, 20 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Unused templates

I would submit that rather than just voting to keep an unused template, why not go out and use the template on an article or two. That would, by definition, keep that template off the unused templates section. I don't see the point of voting to keep a template you won't use. --FlyingFool 21:19, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • These were created primarily as the individual portions of the UnNews main page, which is linked from the Current events link in the navigation sidebar at the left-side of the screen. They've (presumably) been replaced with some other template? --Carlb 18:13, 26 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • Note: Kept

Template:Things that may be out to get you

  • Seems to qualify also. --neoEva88 14:32, 12 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep This Template defines a set of articles that are in the Category "Things that may be out to get you". It was really made to add some variety to the boring "See Also" crap at the bottom of most articles. It adds variety, and if you delete it you will make this site even more boring than it already is. Also, It's not excessive, and eventually it should be modified to have the "best of", from Category "Things that may be out to get you".
I would also like to say that most of these templates suck. They are boring with thier little red dots, and hands. Even nominating a template with a good picture (and a reasonable purpose) for deletion while keeping 100 boring craptastic templates really highlights what's wrong around here. Now don't ever mention this again or I will flick a booger on you. Wiki Tiki God 15:41, 15 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Addendum Only the best of the best should make it on the template, and only really good runners' up should have the template on their page. A lot of the pages on there now suck, and need to be replaced with better pages, when I get around to it I WILL MOVE THE TEMPLATE from the sucky page to the new one on the list. For instance just removed Smurfs and added Grue (and moved template). Wiki Tiki God 16:54, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Quote Templates

Here is a list of most of the non-Wilde quote templates existing currently (10:23, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)). The variable ones may have more uses, but some are probably not needed. The canned ones have very limited use. You may indicate which ones you vote for deletion and keep individually. However, you may also vote to delete All Variable and/or All Canned as a group (and then go back and say "except this one" for any you don't want to include in your encompassing vote). If you would like to see all these templates on one page, see this list of them (with links to where they are placed and their talk pages). --Splaka 10:23, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Slightly-Variable Templates List

Template:Churchill

  • Weak keep has potential --Splaka 10:26, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. I agree with Splaka that making up Churchill quotes has potential, but I really think we should start strongly encouraging people to use Template:Q now instead of making up non-canned templates for different figures. --neoEva88 23:17, 13 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Kill it. Nobody actually uses it which means, (a) it can be deleted safely, and (b) it doesn't really have so much promise. -- neoEva88 MUN F@H PS CM NS (talk.to-do)

Template:Byron

*Keep good one, much used --Splaka 10:26, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)

    • Actually I'll just unnominate this one now, overused. --Splaka 10:42, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)
      • I'm a bit sad to see it go. It was my one of my first actual contributions to Uncyclopedia. For some reason people were actually starting to use it ! MadMax 05:26, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)
        • Odd that it was deleted, since I'd unnominated it (as it was on a bunch of pages). But ahh well. --Splaka 05:33, 21 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Template:Hillary

Delete. Only one page linked to the Hillary templated, and I have since replaced it with Template:Q. The time has come for this template to meet its maker. -- neoEva88 MUN F@H PS CM NS (talk.to-do)

Template:Plato

Delete. It looks like no pages use this quote, so just burn it. -- neoEva88 MUN F@H PS CM NS (talk.to-do)

Template:Einstein

  • Burn Luckily there wasn't one user who was responsible for all these templates, or I would have banned the hell out of them. The only minor criminal I could find was Ogopogo, and I felt a little guilty banning him for trivial offences. Especially since he's done some sterling work with most of the templates he made. Not that that stopped me. 'Nuff with the minor templates people. I swear, it's like the plague. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 16:45, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Template:Holmes

Keep, please? This one is mine; I use it on my pages when it is clever for the specific page. But if you delete it, just delete it. I vote against Killquote-ing, because in random contexts it would look stupid. --Isra1337 14:10, 10 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Kill it. I recommend you do what I've learned to do, just write the quote in manually instead of making a template for it. Canned quote templates tend to encourage quote overkill. --neoEva88 01:27, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Oh, I did, just to get rid of the "this page ... temple.. deletion.." text from my pages. But it still strikes me as needless to kill a template unless it has been abused. Like, I can see why Ballmer had to go, but some of these are not abused at all. Killing all non-Wilde quotes will just discourage people from increasing the variety of quotes used. --Isra1337 02:12, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)
The abuse is in their continual creation, they offend by existing! arrr. ^_^ --Splaka 02:19, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Is it because they take up room in the template namespace? Or am I completely missing the point? --Isra1337 07:02, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Completely missing the point. Once upon a time, we had a few templates. A couple of Wilde quotes. Then the Kanye quote template showed up. Then Ballmer, then Rove. Now we have more than the list on this page. We've deleted (and by we I mean myself) tens of others. And more keep pouring in. Pages keep getting more and more flooded with templates and quotes, and the quality pages we have sink lower and lower, weighed down by quotes which do nothing to further the humor of the article. It's sucking up a lot of admin time to weed through the piles of crap to recover decent articles that are buried in shitty template quotes. What you see here is the tip of the iceberg. We need to kill the culture of template quotes until it's dead. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 16:55, 11 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Thank-you for explaining. I rescind my keep vote. --Isra1337 00:44, 12 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Delete. The only significant instance is on Uncyclopedia:Templates/In-universe. I'll take it upon myself to delete all the canned quote examples from the page. (We certainly don't want to encourage people to use these if we're in the process of deleting them.) -- neoEva88 MUN F@H PS CM NS (talk.to-do)

Template:Kanye

Keep. I happen to find it funny. Sure, it may have been overused a bit, but deleting it is just crazy. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 02:39, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Template:Kanye2

Template:Kai Diekmann

Template:Kerry

Actually this template hasn't been used very much as, if you'll notice the random third comment is unable to display a punctuation mark, I've been holding off on adding it to any pages. I've been working on it off and on for the past several weeks, although I suppose it could be merged to the killquotes template. MadMax 17:54, 14 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Delete There are some good ideas there, but since Kerry isn't running for President anymore, this kind of stuff has to be pretty funny to be worth reading. This template is not funny.
