Votes for deletion

del log

Rules and procedures:

  1. If you're too lazy to read the deletion policy, please, at least, carefully read this list of rules.
    1. But seriously, read the deletion policy.
    2. Do not put anything up for VFD that is not appropriate for VFD.
    3. Abusers of the policy will be abused by the claw end of a hammer. You have been warned.
  2. If you have an article that meets the criteria for VFD:
    1. Check the revision history of the page. It may have been vandalised, or just badly edited over a long period of time. If so, find a better version and revert the article. It may not be suitable for deletion.
    2. Add {{vfd}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
    3. Provide an initial vote (see below) and include a comment as to why you have placed the article on VFD.
  3. If you are here to vote on the deletion/salvation of articles:
    1. Thank you.
    2. No really, thank you.
    3. Edit the section for the article you are addressing.
    4. Pick a space under the appropriate heading (Keep, Delete, Comment), add your sig/comment preceded with a #
      1. # - Creates a numbered bullet for your entry and makes sure that things are formatted correctly (do not put a space before the #).
      2. Comment - If you care to, leave a comment, even if it is as short as "The article is not at all funny". Votes without comments are less useful in analyzing the quality of an article.
      3. --~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.
  4. Do not revert edits of the administrators.
  5. If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month or you will get a bollocking.
  6. If you are neither an Administrator nor a designated Poopsmith, do not remove anything from VFD; doing so will get you banned for a very long time.

Pages for Deletion

Zombiebaronvs.Braydie

Make sure that you have read the rules (above) and the deletion policy. Please don't nominate Main Page or Votes for Deletion; that joke has been done so many times we might just beat you with a nail bat before we tear our hair out in frustration. This also applies to Featured Articles and Uncyclopedia In-Jokes.


How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages):


Notes for Administrators:

  • Allow at least 24 hours before closing a nomination or deleting an article.
  • Remember to delete any unused images from deleted articles and, if necessary, check what links to the article and remove any backlinks. Make sure to delete any broken redirects created as well.
  • To avoid confusion, try to remove closed nominations which cause the page to exceed to 20 articles.
  • If a nomination is kept, please add {{Oldvfd}} to the article's talk page.

To add an article, edit this section, and follow the directions in the comments.


Don't flood VFD full of articles, or at least leave a space between your nominations.

If you increase the number of articles on VFD to over 20, you will be blocked for 1 day, no exceptions. This means do not increase the number of active votes on VFD to over twenty. Inactive votes are shown with either a red link (where they have been deleted), or with the 🔒 Closed nomination H T D Oldvfd tag to indicate that the article has been kept. You have been warned.

Please remember to check an article's history, in case of recent or long term vandalism, before nominating an article. Also, check the article's talk page and 'What links here' for prior nominations. If the article has been nominated before there will be a link from a VFD archive page.


Hyena blazing

Keep
  1. Symbol for vote Keep Isn't this one of the Sacred Texts of Zim Buddhism? Zim worked on it for quite awhile to make it into a sacred text, and I would fear the wrath of the Hyena Gods if it were to be destroyed in the fires of Uncy's furnace. Why not just keep it and move the category name (which, actually, I'll do right now, haste makes hyena waste) Aleister in Chains 21:09 26 4 MMX
  2. Symbol for vote Keep For the record, I did not write this article. It is awful, but awful in an seemingly-unintended, side-effect sort of way. Bottom line: it's my favorite article, and it stays. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 22:01, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
  3. Symbol keep vote Deference-Keep per the fact that Zim is important. --Mn-z 05:37, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol delete vote Delete. Although Zim would not have written an article with such a one-night-stand relationship to English, I concede that he probably intended to develop it into an Uncyclopedia In-Joke, an article enshrined as so bad it's good. But its current state is just bad. It is not endearing Foreigner Pidgin; it's just bad English, perked up with illustrations, then bogged down with templates declaring its special status.

Comments
  • In this sort of situation, should an admin have a "normal" prerogative to cancel a VFD nom? I would say yes, on the grounds that an admin could effectively keep it from being deleted anyway due to our policy of admins not edit-warring each other. --Mn-z 05:37, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
I would hope not. I personally deferred to Zim by not nominating it when I saw it referenced in the Category I nominated (below) and saw his "Bat Fuck" fingerprints on it. But it was nominated; and we are thereby asked whether we think it is crap--not whether we think its adopted parent has clout or is deserving. It is crap, without particular charm, and should go; or stop asking our opinion. Spıke ¬ 18:18 27-Apr-10
I'm not an admin, but I am probably better at Dance Dance Revolution than Zim, so I think I deserve a little deference of my own. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 18:39, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
BUTT POOP!!!! --Mn-z 18:47, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
That's true, I did sorta-kinda get deferred to on that one. Possibly because I can complete "Castle In The Sky" on hard. I like to think it makes me look like an awesome breakdancer, even though it actually makes me look like a nerd hopping up and down in place. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 20:19, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
I see your point, however, I follow the theory that anything with significant support should not be deleted (with some exceptions). --Mn-z 18:47, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • Keep This one be more funnier than the other one which is not funnily named. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 02:11, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Delete
Upon further review, this is not the mere clerical task I thought it was. Of the two categories, one is for errors designed in, and the other is for poorly written pages that someone wants to preserve as so bad it's good. Personally, I'd still prefer just one category, as the message in either case is not to perform drive-by "improvement" of the page; and I'd prefer that names of categories not crack wise.

  • Symbol delete vote Delete. verbosely titled and does the same thing as the somewhat less verbosely titled other category. --Mn-z 15:37, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
  • Delete. Contains only Hyena blazing and an UnNews article, and I'm pretty sure that Hyena blazing will be deleted before too long. No need for a category that categorizes one old UnNews. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 19:57, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

Comments
  • Whatever. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 22:08, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
  • I've edited the explanatory text of the surviving category to encompass both reasons for listing articles there (deliberate moves by good writers, and deliriously funny creations of bad writers). Spıke ¬ 22:13 26-Apr-10
  • EXTERMINATE Uncyclopedia does not tolerate humour. --Ozymandiaz 01:09, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
The verbosity of this one (I've commented to the UnNews people that even the short one is too long) led me to overlook the difference between "intentional" and "unintentional." No, I do not want humor in category names. I don't want to wade through your chuckles repeatedly at the bottom of every relevant page; I want categories to simply categorize. I don't want humor in the unwatch tab at the top of the page. And I don't want you to argue via the guilt-trip that those on the other side are intolerant or humorless. Spıke ¬ 12:54 27-Apr-10
Per Spike. Inserting canned humor ("funny" templates and categories) is what a person does when he wants to edit an article, but doesn't want to invest the time in thinking of any original material. --Mn-z 16:31, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Some categories are funny, some are not. Let the unfunny ones be deleted. Some of the categories I've seen on Uncyc are among the funniest thing on it. Saying that you don't want humour in category names is like saying you want Moby Dick without the sea. --Ozymandiaz 16:57, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Your absurd analogy evades our point. Moby Dick could not exist without the sea; categories could exist without verbose, goofy humor; indeed, whether this one will is what we are debating. Spıke ¬ 18:20 27-Apr-10
Keep the pathetic insults to a minimum please because as anyone will tell you, I am an absolute beast when enraged. Categories could indeed exist without verbose, goofy humour but that would somewhat defeat the point of them, thus making the increasingly drab Uncyclopedia significantly less entertaining. Image how unentertaining Moby Dick would be without the sea. The white wale himself would die of dehydration and Captain Ahab would have to get a hobby stamp collecting. --Ozymandiaz 18:25, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
The "point" of categories is--to categorize, to enable access to articles, whose point is to amuse. Spıke ¬ 18:29 27-Apr-10
Both of you take a step back and relax. Vote for or against, you don't need to tear each other apart or become...enraged...~Jewriken.GIF 18:57, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
You're right of course. Sorry Mordillo. --Ozymandiaz 19:11, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
Does it count as tearing Ozymandiaz apart if I merely rip off his pants? Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 20:20, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

Jat

Keep
  • Symbol for vote Keep It taught me something about Jat. Why don't we just take out the emails (or spam the fuck out of the guy), drop the author a note on his talk page, and put in a couple more funnies. It looks like lots of work and thought went into this page, and we could help the author improve it with our vast knowledge of Indian comedic timing and Jat culture. Aleister the Jat! 13:17 26 4
  • Symbol keep vote Keep. Endearing pidgin English. (I presume that the template warning us not to correct him on its usage is part of the joke.) Vandalism throughout, deposited by I.P.Anon on 15-Feb, is now removed. Spıke ¬ 13:40 26-Apr-10
Delete
  • Symbol delete vote Delete. What is this, and why does the author include his email in it like 5 times? —Pelozurian (talk) 04:39, 26 April 2010 (UTC)
One possibility, as each of the occurrences I found is an invitation to buy his new book, is that it's a joke. Spıke ¬ 13:25 26-Apr-10

  • Symbol keep vote Keep. This is funny in Turkey, apparently. --Mn-z 03:12, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
That implies, conversely, that it's unfunny for 98.7% of the rest of the world. Turkey is the Jupiterfox of nations. --Count of Monkey Crisco 07:51, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol keep vote Keep. I missed the caption when I looked at this earlier. Spike gives one translation, and we should try to get an accurate translation if "There again?" is not correct. That itself is funny, even without knowing that much about Ataturk (who is the most famous Turk, I believe). I'll put a fix to the caption by enlarging and bolding it. Aleister in Chains 2:14 27 4 MMX
Even if we found that the caption was funny (and why), it will never be funny to me. Because I don't speak Turkish. That is why I am on this Uncyclopedia and not the Turkish one, where I would be if I wanted to find a good, Turkish-language Ataturk joke. Spıke ¬ 12:56 27-Apr-10
The caption would be translated into English here, not stay in Turkish. It may be funny to those who know of Ataturk, to english-speaking turks, to history buffs, etc. I find "there again?" funny as it is, without the total background. Those english speaking people who know the background may find it funnier yet. That's why my keep vote. Aleister in Chains 14:27 27 4 MMX

  • Symbol delete vote Delete. We need something called "How To Be Funny And Not Just a Lone, Uninteresting Image". --Count of Monkey Crisco 16:09, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote Delete. (Formerly Comment.) 'Fraid I don't get it either. 01:16 It was not so much sporked from the Turkish Uncyclopedia as it was lifted, with verbatim caption, which as far as I can tell says "There again?" but may also be a Turkish translation of a movie title. Bottom line, if we delete it, it will live on in the Turkish Uncyclopedia where all those giggling Turks can continue to enjoy it. Spıke ¬ 02:03 27-Apr-10
