Votes for deletion

del log

The goal here is to improve the quality of Uncyclopedia, not to win a vote. You can edit a page during a vote. You can flip your vote if the page improves or if other voters convince you.

To nominate a page for deletion
  • Read these rules and the deletion policy.
  • Do not increase the number of active nominations on VFD to over 20, as a 1 day ban often offends. (Inactive votes, which are grayed out, don't count in the limit of 20.)
  • Please check an article's history before nominating it. If there has been vandalism, revert it to the best past version. Also, check the article's talk page to see if it is in Category:Deletion Survivor. If so, Special:WhatLinksHere will find the relevant VFD archive(s); read about how the previous vote(s) went.
  • Add {{VFD}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
  • If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month.

How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages)

To vote to delete or keep an article
  • Edit the section for the article in question.
  • To vote, start a new line at the end of the delete= or keep= section, beginning with #. This creates a numbered entry. Do not put a space before #. Increment the delnumber or keepnumber, whichever applies.
    • To post brief indented replies to a vote, start lines with #: with one or more colons; anything else breaks the numbered list.
  • To type a comment, start a new line at the end of the comments= section, beginning with * (as comments need not be numbered).
  • Votes with an explanation, and comments, are more helpful in analyzing the quality of an article.
  • ~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.

Do not delete any content without authorization. To change a vote, strike your old one and add a new one. Do not change other users' posts. At least 24 hours must pass before a nomination is closed or an article is deleted.

Owain Glyndwr's Footy Manager H D

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. I wouldn't mind an article on a non-existent film, just as long as it's funny. Also, the title even misspells "Glyndŵr". Believe me, they're two completely different sounds. This isn't a good omen, and it is accurate in that. ConCass2 (talk) 15:56, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Taking nominator's word that no comparable movie exists, the page title is something no one will look up unless he exactly guesses the author's joke. (On the other hand, lack of a mark from a foreign language is not a VFD offense.) So, someone made a movie about Glyndŵr, who according to the Intro is either a person or a movement; it had a lot of slapstick that plays out best in the author's mind; and the movie "is shit." Unchanged except for tweaking of lists since Picton created it in 2009. Spıke ¬ 17:00 6-Aug-14
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. I withdraw my vote to keep it, it would be need a lot of re-writing and it would be easier just to write a new article on Owain Glyndŵr --Steveyt0 (talk) 20:35, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
    I would be able to help write an article on Glyndŵr if you need any help. By the way, don't delete your vote if you change your mind. Just strike it out. ConCass2 (talk) 20:39, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

  • Symbol keep vote Keep. I looked up Owain Glyndŵr a few days ago, and this article appears in the search box. You don't have to guess the exact name of the article to stumble across it. I think the concept is pretty funny, however it is clearly in need of editing. I feel that it can be turned into a reasonable article with a bit of tweaking. Also I believe the article is loosely based on a movie called "Mike Bassett: England Manager". The preceding unsigned comment was added by Steveyt0 (talk • contribs)
    All right, you have shown that someone might "stumble across it" — notably, someone who was trying to stumble across it; but answer the VFD question: Is it a good article? Is it funny in the least? Is it at the best name? Spıke ¬ 16:24 7-Aug-14
    I think the concept (of Owain Glyndŵr being transported into the 21st century to coach the Welsh national football team ) is reasonably funny, however I do not think it's a "good" article as it is, I think it would need substantial editing. There is very little funny about the article other than the concept, I would suggest that it should perhaps be completely re-written. I would move the article to "Owain Glyndŵr", he is well known inside Wales, he's the Welsh equivalent of William Wallace. I don't find it unlikely that Welsh people might search for him, I did --Steveyt0 (talk) 20:18, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

  1. I personally think this can go, maybe there is a joke I do not understand, maybe there isn't. All I can say is that not even the other Uncyclopedia wanted it and that's saying something. I don't know maybe I just do not understand the article. What do you guys think? HoratioMan64 (talk) 16:19, August 8, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Written to inform, not to amuse. Wikipedia says that Svelvik is in Vestfold County, Norway, not of urgent interest to our readership. Much of the humor is in Norse, and the part that is in English is not in good English. No one here will know enough about Svelvik to repair this article or even to know what jokes might be made about Svelvik. Spıke ¬ 17:27 8-Aug-14
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. An example (and there are many here) of articles that basically say 'this town/city/etc etc' is shit. End of story. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:50, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Totally lists, and mostly unfunny real-world etiquette tips.

  • Some of the one liners are funny and can be used elsewhere. I just don't get why there are a bunch of legitimate office etiquette tips in there. The article makes no sense. Rocketsled (talk) 15:51, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • I have now backed out Anon's recent edits and reverted the page to 2012. You may flip your vote if you think it makes sense now; I still don't see any humor. Spıke ¬ 11:58 17-Aug-14

    Oh, I see there was a source in the article before. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:31, August 18, 2014 (UTC)
    But then, this means that the point of the article was to advertise the offsite meme. Spıke ¬ 14:08 18-Aug-14

  • New Uncyclopedian SamTheAwesome has addressed this. I am inclined to vote against any made-up war, and warned Sam against turning this into a personal story arc with his new The Great Whale Invasion (which I'd also vote to delete), but will hold off to see if he takes either anywhere funny.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Another article whose title demands that the reader type the exact joke he wants to read, to see if we ever wrote it. Recasting the USA as a socialist/Soviet country is trite to begin with, and in part simply true. What this article provides is an extremist version of what Obama wants to do with America. Neither the parts that are too close to truth nor the parts that are paranoid are funny. Spıke ¬ 22:21 21-Aug-14

  • Symbol comment vote Comment. [1], this Wikipedia page seems to suggest that the USSA was not an invention of Uncyclopedia and therefore may be typed into our searchbar. I'll have a look at it and see what to touch up. Obama being a socialist is only a joke that Americans will get as Britain's current (already quite dismantled) welfare state (and many other countries') makes Obama's policies seem rather Conservative. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:27, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
    I had a go but realized that it was far too factual (based on the USSA in Back in the USSA) and lacked humour. I would be happy to vote against if no one is willing to re-write. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:17, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
    Then I was mistaken that it was an article about nothing. Still, it is not humor but allegory. Spıke ¬ 13:12 22-Aug-14
