  4. Against. Something Dumb: A Retrospective is in danger of becoming a stale VFH formula. This didn't do it for me either. -- posh Ape (pwn) (Riot Porn) 23:07, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
  5. Symbol against vote Against. Starts off well and then gets bored and wants to end it all in CAPS. So not a VFH according to my Movements in Vegetable Centuries Index. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate). 21:22, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
  6. Against. Per the last retrospective article I voted against tonight. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 01:20, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Comments
  • Anyone with suggestions on how to make this better, please let me know. I'll be happy to improve the article a little more. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 13:27, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Abstain. So close, but it isn't there yet. Also, I'm too tired to put my reviewing hat back on ChiefjusticeDS 21:21, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Romartus, are you referring to the exact last line, as that is the punchline of the original article which this is a retrospective of, and therefore it's necessary... If you're referring to the IP's perspective, then I must agree. I don't really like that part, but I don't think you should vote against it because one part and not give a suggestion of what to do to fix it, though you seem to have an idea of what needs to be fixed, and I want to know what it is. And you other against voters smell like ass, so there. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 21:35, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
  • Hey, to all against voters (other than Sid and Romartus because they actually made a point that is seems to ramble off a bit toward the end), mind elaborating a bit more on your against votes? Constructive criticism is more than welcome, guys. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 22:31, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    Yeah sure. My issue is that, while doing a retrospective on a stupid piece of crap was new and fresh with Fisher Price, now it occurs every time there is a new stupid piece of crap, and thus it loses its impact. Also, the beauty of Fisher Price: A Retrospective was that it cleverly found loads of ways of playing on the words "go eat shit fuckers". I don't think you have quite achieved that. -- posh Ape (pwn) (Riot Porn) 22:36, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    Thanks Ape. I tried to do that a bit with the "Chinese linguistics expert" section, but that alone does seem to be a bit random since the rest is actually talking about how "A wizard did it" has been used throughout history. I'll think of a way to make it a bit more consistent after an admin closes this vote (seeing as it only has 33% health). Now to get the other five against voters to elaborate a bit.

    To be fair, the Fisher Price Retrospective is an almost impossible target, so any other similar article will always have to dwell in the shadow it casts. This article when viewed as a standalone is pretty funny, it really is just the end that goes downhill for me. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 22:48, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    The very last line? Wait, tell me which section begins it's descent to unfunny. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 22:50, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    Dexter, I'm gonna give it an in-depth look over and leave some suggestions on the talk page. I might even help write if you want. -- posh Ape (pwn) (Riot Porn) 22:53, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    Ape, have I mentioned that you rock (but you're nowhere Tool cause they push the boundaries like no other and stuff)? MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 22:58, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
    I was gonna make a few additional interpretations and fix up the article by tomorrow or something. But really, all help and advice is very much appreciated. The more the merrier.
