  • Nominations of articles from all namespaces (including UnNews, UnTunes, HowTo, UnBooks, etc.) are welcomed.
  • If a nomination disappears from this page, it is likely to be found in either the recently featured or recently failed nomination lists.

Nominate

Self-nomination regulation: self-nominated articles (i.e. you write an article and then decide to nominate it yourself) no longer require a pee review. Pee Review is still highly recommended for newer users. Do not clog up VFH with poor quality self-nominated articles... or else.

VFH is not a discussion page. If you'd like constructive criticism for your article, please submit it to Uncyclopedia:Pee Review.

  1. Symbol for vote For. A five star unreview that exemplifies how to over analyze. I'm sure there's more lenses of literary criticism to view Zero Wing from, so perhaps it's a bit premature. Irritable of contents (talk) 03:17, March 16, 2017 (UTC)

  1. Symbol against vote Against. Well-written, yes, but reads as though it is written to inform not amuse. The Intro especially is nothing but praise of Fripp and lament over the state of modern music. No one visits to read essays of personal opinion in a slightly jaunty voice; let's hold out for actual humor. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:52 25-Feb-17
  2. Symbol against vote Against. Funny premise, however that was really explored through writing style rather than actual jokes. A good piece of writing but not a great piece of parody. --Moonhead42 (talk) 01:31, March 17, 2017 (UTC)

  • For those born in the mid 90s (that's me), this article might bring back some good memories. Anyone older or younger than that will be confused about the subject material, heh.--HolUp (talk) 09:01, January 10, 2017 (UTC) Poor rationale for article redacted--HolUp (talk) 08:21, January 28, 2017 (UTC)
    Strikes me that PerfumeRepair watched one episode and wrote a wisecracking blog. I haven't watched the show but don't see much of a comedy strategy here. Stereotyping in the Intro ("token" vs "farmboy") falls flat. Nominator mentions two good reasons not to feature it. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:54 10-Jan-17

  • Very hard to slog through, from the passives in the first sentence to the Bible citations in the second. The payoff is that Biblical commandments are mostly ludicrous (which could be funny) or that Bible-quoters are hypocrites (which dances on the line of advocacy). Keep working on it. Spıke Radiomicrophone02:26 4-Jan-17
  • Comment. I will vote for this, but in the "Sacrifices" section, third paragraph, third sentence, there is a minor question I have grammatically. I feel as if you should have 'but' instead of 'and'. Because this conjunction is 'not only... but also'. Just a little thing that bugged me. QuietEmoTrash (talk) 01:57, March 22, 2017 (UTC)

  1. Symbol against vote Against. This is a checklist of things fake news does, followed by an example; this reads more like a definition for undictionary. From the title I was expecting something over the top and close to ED territory like Pizzagate, which would demonstrate how apparently libel laws don't apply to the internet or during election seasons.

Comments
  • Although nominally related to the U.S. "Fake News" hysteria, the strategy of repeatedely stating a journalistic rule and then violating it in the same sentence comes across as mechanical as a "Page in the style of the thing it's about." Spıke Radiomicrophone02:30 4-Jan-17
