I'll have a quick look... --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 16:42, 29 January 2008 (UTC)

Humour: 7 Wow, this is quite hard to score! Do I score the idea of Conservatroll (which is fun...) or how funny the actual article is? I'll go with scoring just the article itself... It's not bad, a few chuckles in place. You've tried to spice up just recording the rules of the game, so points for that.
Concept: 7 Again, tricky - the concept of Conservatroll itself is interesting, but I have to rate this as an article, and how you're trying to use the rules to get laughs on here, as opposed to laughing while "playing" the game. And it's not easy to get a real laugh a minute article out of a set of rules - so you've not done a bad job, I think.
Prose and formatting: 7 Well, there were a few issues that have been picked up by a bit of a sweep through, but the main thing is it all looks samey, with a lot of short blocks of text and nothing to break it up. Pics would be nice (see next box) and possibly combining a couple of similar sections (such as cheating/tactics/casual play) under one heading (such as "playing styles") instead.
Images: 2 One small image. Not hugely relevant although you did caption it to be. How about a screenshot of Conservapedia with "pedia" crossed out and "troll" in place? And another showing an actual edit on the site itself might be handy. With more image editing experience, something like a poster or box art would be good (try image request if you're stuck). It's always good to have pics, and a couple of good ones would really help get people interested.
Miscellaneous: 5.8 Averaged per how it works around here.
Final Score: 28.8 I like the idea. I like that you've not just written out the rules, but tried to add in some jokes to fit in with the Uncyc ethos. I obviously don't condone the playing of the game at all, but this is a decent job. I suspect if it were put on VFH there would be a fight between those who love the idea of the game and want it featuring, and those who don't think it stands by itself as an article (not to mention those who tihing it may cause a problem if we openly encourage the game...) But I suspect quite a lot of people will like it. But do get some pics!
