For: 11
  1. For Why not?CornStarch 08:56, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  2. Eh, sounds crazy enough -that would be funny. I'ma vote yes. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Drakwarior (talk • contribs)
  3. Has it been suggested before? Yes. Does it fail every time? Yes. Do I vote for every time? Yes. Spang talk 01:55, 21 Aug 2007
  4. For so long as somebody does a funny write-up on the feature box, or maybe just a cascading screenshot-effect-thingy?     EugeneKay wuz here (whine thank)      14:45, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  5. VFD... I mean For --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 14:53, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  6. Then let's nominate VFD --Dexter111344 17:45, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  7. For -RAHB22:18, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  8. 4 I want a cascading feedback effect, like pointing a video camera at the TV it's hooked up to. P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 00:43, Aug 22, 2007
  9. For This isn't any ordinary "This page would have worked in 2005" page. This is the Main Page! (And if it doesn't work, I'll try at Illogicopedia.) -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us
  10. For A cascadey picture and some well-written text would make this a great front-page candidate. If not now, then we could always add an "International Meta-Humour Day" to our calendar at some point, and use it to celebrate the stranger side of Uncyc. I'm serious, by the way...! --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 17:43, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
  11. Strongest Possible For--Sir Manforman CUN 20:42, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Against: 10
  1. No. Listen, there are pages, and then there are pages. Main page is one of those. Other pages, people wrote. By people I mean people. Main page didn't get written by people. Well, the code did, but the people who wrote the code were rewarded with a complementary episode of STNG. Noms for other pages, the ones written by people, meanwhile, sit unread because this nom for main page is hogging their attention. By "their attention", I mean "my attention". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:52, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  2. Strong Against On two counts. First count is the "Jesus Christ it's not 2005 anymore" count. Jesus Christ! It's not 2005 anymore! Novelty is not what we look for on the main page anymore. An article that contains nothing but a full stop can't be featured, International Page Blanking Day can't be featured, I don't see why the hell this is any different! Sure, this is an actual page with content, but the content of it isn't in itself content! We don't need anymore stupidity, we don't need to do this to garner a cheap laugh. We have plenty of genuinely funny pages that we can fill the next feature with. This is just retarded. The second count is related to the first. It goes something like "This is essentially like trying to feature The word parakeet written exactly two hundred and forty-two times." That's just my opinion, anyway.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 17:34, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  3. Against. Again. And again. And... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
  4. Against-- belittling Ape (BASH) (Riot Porn) 19:08, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
  5. Against. Unless you're planning to feature it on April 1st.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 19:45 Aug 21, 2007
  6. When Pigs Fly. ~ Tophatsig 21/08/2007 @ 19:49
  7. Against - Sadly, I am one of the people who takes VFH seriously. Icons-flag-au Sir Cs1987 UOTM. t. c 02:13, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
  8. Against It always makes the front page! Sir Roger 07:21, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
  9. Against. There are enough genuinely highlight worthy articles without doing this. --Sir Under User (Hi, How Are You?) VFH KUN 09:52, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
  10. Nope. Even I love pudding was a better idea than this. We have Redundancy (and also Redundancy for that matter) already, just feature those again (and again and again and again and again...) "Spang" contribs | talk 17:44, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
Comments

I don't know if this can be done, or if someone has tried to do this before, but would it not be hilarious to see on the main page "Today's featured article: Main Page." Someone would have to create a picture of the Main Page featuring the Main Page, but you all at Uncyclopedia seem intelligent enough to pull that off. Feel free to put me in my place if this is not as humorous as I thought it would be.CornStarch 08:56, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Could someone put a notice on the top of VFH regaurding nominating the main page so we don't go through this whole thing every few months with a different newbie? Or is this in the same vein as nomming rcmurphy as NotM? ~ Tophatsig 21/08/2007 @ 14:49
  • To clarify, it's so deliciously uncyclopedic. Yeah, there's pages written by people who are desperate to have their articles on the front page, but to be honest, how often do we not have that? It isn't like there's a limited number of features, so when there's a chance to do something original that actually hasn't been done before, why not go for it? I'm surprised we've gone this long without doing it. Spang talk 03:53, 21 Aug 2007
    Then next can we feature the ICU template? Then VFD? Then the UGotM page? There's not taking this seriously, and then there's putting no thought into Uncyc at all. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:06, 21 August 2007 (UTC)
    Ya know, I thought about nominating a few of those pages you were talking about, but it just not as funny as featuring the main page. It is hard to explain why this would be so funny to feature, but I think the best way would be for someone to actually visualize what the main page would look like featuring itself. Plus, an article featuring itself? Come on, hilarious.CornStarch 00:40, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

When I though this up, I totally had the cascading image effect in mind, it would be perfect and not hard to pull off. Just take a screen shot of the main page, and where the featured article should be, paste the screen shot. Rinse and Repeat. Sadly though, This idea has too much opposition, oh well.CornStarch 00:53, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

If it was anything like Braydie proposed for the idea a little while ago, you're wouldn't get it. You'd just get the top header. ~ Tophatsig 22/08/2007 @ 02:17
  • Abs. while i can't make up my mind at this time, as an astrophysicist i can tell you that featuring the main page on the main page would cause the universe to explode. --SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 19:41, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
    We can only hope it does! CornStarch 20:46, 22 August 2007 (UTC)
