Welcome to the Uncyclopedia Votes for Highlight page. To nominate an article, type the name into the box below and follow the directions.
  • Vote for an article you find excellent.
  • Previous featured articles can be found in the VFH archive.
  • Voters: don't be dicks and do be constructive with criticism. Writers: Don't be prima donnas. Be open to criticism.
  • 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.
  • If your article doesn't make it to the front page, don't despair. It may be eligible to be Quasi-featured so long as it meets certain criteria.
Any and all violators of policy will be poisoned.

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.

  • Indeed, self-nomming has replaced Uncyclopedians running in packs and nomming each other. The writing here is very good, but it includes the awful "competing theories" structure (awful because it always inspires Anon to write an additional, unrelated, incoherent section); moreover, that is all there is; Sections 1.1 through 1.5 and then we're done. But all the competing theories are entertaining. Could you tug this in a few more directions, perhaps paralleling the Wikipedia page? Spıke ¬ 02:55 14-Oct-14
    Because Pee Review died. Everyone used to nom people's stuff after doing a review.--Nikau (talk) 05:51, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

  • Two of the sections have all this extra space at the bottom. I'm not sure what to suggest, but I thought I should point this out in case of the remote possibility that it might be of use. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 21:20 14 Oct 2014
    Author used {{Clear}} (I use {{-}} at Mustaches of Legend) to ensure that no photo slops over to a subsequent section. This is OK, though it is usually a hint that you ought to write additional text. Spıke ¬ 21:25 14-Oct-14

  1. Symbol against vote Against. Well, I read that Challenger article and was impressed, and then read SPIKE's Paraguay and The Rescuers and was still impressed, but this one by him is too acidic for my tastes. It's a little too irreverent about the subject (16 year old who got shot for learning) without being ridiculous enough to convince me otherwise. Challenger was more sombre and appropriate in a way. --Nikau (talk) 07:51, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

  • If you sign with three tildes, you have to make sure that nom= is followed by three tildes. Otherwise you get an extra timestamp. I've fixed it for you this time, but I thought I'd show you how to fish too, as they say. Hope that helps. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 16:33 10 Oct 2014
  • Comment. I found it more tasteless than funny. Nikau (talk) 11:53, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    I must admit it came across, to me, as being on the borderline between ridiculous comedy and a political attack in a guise. As Spike preaches against the latter and the concept was so ubsurd I took it to be satire of hate preaches against Islam. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:28, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    Indeed, the story of Yousafzai is the unreason and violence of Islam, and I thought that the silly strategy that "they can't shoot straight" was the only way to do it (along with the secondary strategy that it was all merely a media Activism campaign). This objection sounds like Sannse's nomination of Cutter at VFD: Not that it isn't funny but that it is a subject we shouldn't have touched: a taboo. Spıke ¬ 13:22 11-Oct-14
    So I was wrong. It is not satirising anti-Islamic propaganda but helping it? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:36, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    The comedy strategy is then to ridicule the organization which Yousafzai was protesting against, which is fine, however it does come across, in some places, as though the article is ridiculing the whole of Pakistan, which is an un-funny and unfounded generalization. However I decided when voting that the latter was not the intended strategy of the author. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:41, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    I admit that a subplot is that Pakistan is ridiculous, as a lot of my UnNews articles on the U.S. assert that the government can't govern and the opposition cannot oppose. The comedy is in fact less offensive if no institution is off-limits. Spıke ¬ 14:33 11-Oct-14
    Agreed. I adopt that a lot. However as long as you are making a clear line between satirising the Pakistani government and offensively stereotyping a race of people for non-humorous purposes (i.e. claiming they're all extremists), which I'm sure you had no intention of doing. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 15:10, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    I saw nothing along the lines of 'Islam is cool, oppressing women is the cat's pajamas, Malala should be seen and not heard (well, not really seen either) and keep to her proper place in society, and shooting her was just so cool and seriously what's with the peace prize?!', which would have been my criterion for voting against. The article appears to take no one's side in particular. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:04 11 Oct 2014

  6. This is actually pretty good. I like the concept of taking the word 'antibiotic' and interpreting it as referring to artificially intelligent beings who are anti-life. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 02:30 27 Sep 2014

Comments
  • If the external links are such a problem, I don't think the article would suffer too much if they were removed. I didn't click on a single one and I still enjoyed it. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 02:30 27 Sep 2014
    This refers to my complaint to author and his vulgar response that I had a duty to understand what he was getting at. Indeed, an unexplained bulleted list of seven numbers, which do nothing unless you click on them, adds no humor to the page, and suggests that the reader has a comparable duty to get himself sufficiently informed to appreciate the page. In fact, the author ought to bring the humor to the reader. By the way, I have read the entire Intro again and it is still not clear that an alternate voice is the basis of the "humor."

    Well, since you seem to be one of the newer additions to the site in relative terms, people have been using links like that in select articles for a long time: see Gay Pubs. You remain the only one on either site to ever find it necessary to tell me (very rudely I might add) how unfunny my work was on my talk page. If you feel the need to pointedly tell established members "I don't like this" and call it an "opinion essay" (what?) without constructive criticism, then you probably need to look at yourself good and close. Which was quite a disappointment because I remember you being a promising new writer from the same way back when Gay Pubs came from. --Nikau (talk) 07:29, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    I am not against references, even when they are simply external links. In my opinion, the writer is not asking the reader to get informed before reading his article, but rather saying: "Here is my joke! Now, if you want to know more on the topic, here is a link that can help you." Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:45, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • What's with the jibes against Jews? They have nothing to do with the content of the article. The first two illustrations and the closing tag seem totally out of place and are only funny if you happen to hate Jews. And just in case you missed them there's a reference to swastikas thrown into the caption on the punch card, to call your attention to it. Snarglefoop (talk) 16:36, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
  • Now hold on just one cotton-picking minute. As per Snarglefoop above, what's with the anti-Semitic stuff? Something smells mighty funny here. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 16:38 10 Oct 2014
  • Comment. The joke is that the antibiotic stuff is a parody of antisemitism. the whole thing is poking fun at the stupidity of Antisemitism. You're supposed to think of computers starting a stupid and pointless movement against humans, like the stupid and pointless movement against jews. Nikau (talk) 11:31, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
    • To quote the article itself: Fortunately, because it was simple like most bigots, ENIAC had to be totally rewired to shout an individual epithet. It's a parody, and it even links to a definition of antisemitism to explain that. --Nikau (talk) 11:42, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
      • I believe you about the intent but it just doesn't work for me. The effect is too similar to too many other "humor" articles which have random bits of antisemitism thrown in to spice them up or something. Snarglefoop (talk) 14:16, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. It's a sensitive subject, but I don't see racism there. The swastika reference makes it clear the author wants to parody the nazist régime and the last sentence (now changed) - "At least, they are not Jews, I guess" - was too obviously racist to actually be racist. What I am saying is very subjective, however. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:38, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
  • Nikau's explanation was sufficient to induce me to reinstate my vote. Thanks. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 19:26 11 Oct 2014
