|keep=#{{keep}} I like the idea of these other "languages", and the unquotable pages are classic examples of these other faux languages. Besides, removing these pages should be a decision put off until the fate of the Unquotable namespace is decided, since they are linked to on the main page of the Unquotable namespace, and would require a change to that page. {{User:Simsilikesims/sig}} 00:36, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

* And on 17 July 2007 an IP made a single edit, which was to spam an ad for Slackware into the article in a new section titled 'usage'. It sticks out like a sore thumb if you read that far. Apparently nobody noticed (maybe nobody's ever read that far in the article), since the section is still there, still just as serious and non-funny as it was the day it was plopped into the article.

*::Eh hmmm.... I just re-read it, and I think I was wrong -- that section is 'way too over the top to be a serious ad for Slackware. Microsoft uses it internally, and the Debian project uses it for their servers -- yeah right. And out here in the real world, the shuttle <s>uses</s> used IBM software, and IBM has its own version of Unix. So, I guess the author of that section took ''me'' in, at least.

|delete=#{{delete}} I'm throwing this out to see if we want to trim back the UnQuotable project. I support its deletion, because scattershot lists of quotes are not funny. --{{User:Mnbvcxz/sig5}} 10:59, February 17, 2013 (UTC)
 
|comments=
 
*[[Unquotable]] is a parody of Wikiquote. This means that it's essentially a scattershot of lists of quotes. Some of these are okay, given that it's a very limited frame. Most of them are terrible. And [[Unquotable:Steven Wright]]<ref>Now deleted, independent of the issues discussed here; a cut-and-paste from an external humor website. -Spike</ref> has recently been recreated, and as with previous incarnations is pretty woeful. While I'd agree with a massive trim on these pages (which I went through and trimmed out a lot of these a year ago, but VFD'd few of them), the namespace has it's place. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|11:04 17 Feb}}
 
*:Just because Wikipedia does something doesn't mean we should copy it. An example is the fork's recent "UnVoyage" which is likely to turn into Ultra-Towncruft, if it isn't forgotten in a few months. While the unquotable format does parody an actual thing, it is not particularly conducive to writing good material. There is no good reason why there should be a quote page by Charles Darwin, and not one by, say Preggobear. I could create a quote page for Preggobear, but anything I can say there can be , and probably is, said better in paragraph format in the mainspace article. --{{User:Mnbvcxz/sig5}} 11:18, February 17, 2013 (UTC)
 
*::Yeah, but if we tried to do a [[Captain Oblivious]] article it... well, you can see what I ended up doing with it. I've trimmed this particular page down now to remove some of the worst quotes. (Although I agree - I see no value in UnVoyage. It'll go much the same way as UnBestiary in the end.) {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|12:17 17 Feb}}
 
*:::My issue is that you are saving weak articles by moving them out of mainspace into a "crapspace" for lack of a better term. Articles like [[Captain Oblivious]] should stand or fall on their own merits, not hide their flaws behind a namespace. It would like moving '''Robotic ghost pirates''' to '''UnLegacyRandumbo:Robotic ghost pirates''' instead of taking it to VFD. --{{User:Mnbvcxz/sig5}} 13:13, February 17, 2013 (UTC)
 
*::::Except that I didn't think it was VFD worthy. I felt it had merit, but not in the “frame” of mainspace. Otherwise we should delete UnDictionary because all the articles are stubs. Under that “frame”, this article works. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|01:42 17 Feb}}

Tie that in with the (real) origin of chess somewhere sometime in India, and with the invasion of India by some (presumed) white tribe or other at the end of the Bronze Age and there might be a hook to hang something on.

*As "Uncyclopedia is not a catalog to things found elsewhere on the Net," I've deleted three sections that had no function but to send readers to YouTube. '''Pieces of this article intended to serve up true utterances of Beck by which to discredit him are advocacy, not humor, even if you think he is ridiculously funny.''' Some funny stuff remains <s>and I would like to see it merged into [[Glenn Beck]], as</s> "Asshat" in the title is likewise too busy being advocacy to help the reader reach the article. I assume Aleister's vote is more advocacy rather than a vote. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:31 15-Feb-13</small>
 
*:Advocacy? Are we wikipedia now? All the Fred Phelps pages are advocacy, the Hitler pages are too, I guess, and anti-Hitler pages are too, and on and on...[[user:Aleister|''Aleister'']] minutes later. I remember when we moved this page to here when Glenn Beck was replaced with the other page, and there was discussion about what to call it, and Asshat won.
 
*::I reply by boldfacing a sentence of my earlier reply. Multiple wrongs don't make a right. The Hitler pages have value added by Uncyclopedians. If you intend to reassemble the YouTube collection that I deleted, please take it to a more suitable website. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:41 15-Feb-13</small>
 
*::I strike part of my earlier reply. [[Glenn Beck]] was a FA and should not receive any orphaned pieces of this article, especially if that is not an improvement. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:06 15-Feb-13</small>
 
*:::I recall when Glenn Beck was written there was some discussion about if it should replace this article, which was an established page by that time. We decided sure, as long as this page was kept around, and the discussion of what to name it was heated and laster for about a year (no it didn't, but it was discussed). I don't like the Glenn Beck page itself, it's more of an UnBooks because it's a transcript of Beck's show. This page is more encyclopedic, and I think should have remained the Beck article. And why can't we put the videos back on the talk page????? This seems a suitable place to put them, and to enjoy them at our leisure. Videos work, and many pages use them. Do we have a limit on vids (three sounds reasonable if presented well, with captions and they are appropriate to the page. The vid at UnPoetia:Well-oil birds worked so perfectly you'd think it was designed for the page) and if so, let's put a couple of them back at least. Glenn, we hardly knew ye! [[user:Aleister|''Aleister'']] 12:45 16-2-'13
 
*::::Do we have a limit? My personal limit is 1; as when yesterday I cut out a section of [[Bear wrestler]] with no original comedy, designed only to share a TV show with other Uncyclopedians. Which is as close as you come to comedy in the deleted sections. We appreciate the work of cops but not enough to allow roughing up detainees; and we benefit from your skill but not when you use the website to catalog the rants of a commentator you disagree with. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:27 17-Feb-13</small>
 
*:::::I just visited [[Bear wrestler]]. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered it wasn't about hairy homosexual gladiators. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|02:34 17 Feb}}
 
*On a related note, I found [[Unquotable:Glenn Beck]] which is similarly themed, although it is written like a bad uncyclopedia rather than a bad liberaladvocacypedia article. --{{User:Mnbvcxz/sig5}} 10:50, February 17, 2013 (UTC)

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.

Add a new article here


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.

  • I cleaned up the red-links (some created in anticipation of writing a personal story arc on neighboring counties), the vanity, and the anti-cop rants; but it still has nothing more profound to say than racial minorities, indebtedness, and rude drivers. Classic "towncruft" that, in the case of England, we went on a drive to snuff out earlier in the year. Spıke ¬ 15:01 24-Aug-14

  • And on 17 July 2007 an IP made a single edit, which was to spam an ad for Slackware into the article in a new section titled 'usage'. It sticks out like a sore thumb if you read that far. Apparently nobody noticed (maybe nobody's ever read that far in the article), since the section is still there, still just as serious and non-funny as it was the day it was plopped into the article. Snarglefoop (talk) 19:32, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
    I just read it, it isn't clear to me it's an ad, nor that it's unfunny, nor why it is funny if it is meant to be funny. A fifth Delete vote and no one has to answer this question. But you are free to try to improve an article while it is being voted on. Spıke ¬ 19:51 16-Sep-14
    Eh hmmm.... I just re-read it, and I think I was wrong -- that section is 'way too over the top to be a serious ad for Slackware. Microsoft uses it internally, and the Debian project uses it for their servers -- yeah right. And out here in the real world, the shuttle uses used IBM software, and IBM has its own version of Unix. So, I guess the author of that section took me in, at least. (And I'm still undecided on whether the article is salvageable which is why I voted neither yay nor nay.)

  1. There is a largely rewritten version here, which I would like to replace the current article with. I think it's different enough that it has to go through VFD. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talk contribs) 03:55 18 Sep 2014

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. Replacement is still dependent on lists and chavs. Its improvements can be edited in, and Obama can be edited out. Please mince words in the new Intro. Spıke ¬ 12:58 18-Sep-14
  2. Symbol keep vote Rewrite. I've just given it more thought. Why rewrite it in your user space when you can easily just rewrite the current article? ConCass2 (talk) 16:24, September 18, 2014 (UTC)
    Because I thought rewrites had to be approved at VFD. Am I mistaken? My version is pretty different, and I'm making it more different per Spike's comment above. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talk contribs) 16:29 18 Sep 2014
    Wholesale replacements of articles should be brought here, in fairness to the original authors. I thought your rewrite paralleled the original and could be achieved by edits. (Do it gradually just in case anyone cares.) Spıke ¬ 17:01 18-Sep-14
    Oh, ok. So should I start rewriting the article now, wait till this vote is closed, or... I'm confused. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talk contribs) 19:05 18 Sep 2014
    With a fairly simple Python script and one edit every day or two, you should be able to replace, say, every 10th character in the old article with the corresponding character from the new version, and then, a day or two later, replace another slice of 10% of the article, and so forth, proceeding until the whole article is replaced over the course of a couple weeks. That way you're never replacing more than 10% of the text at a time, and there's never a need to take it to VFD. (Of course, anyone who tries to read it when you're about halfway through this process may have some heavy going, but whatever -- maybe you should stick a note on it to the effect that you're working it over while you're doing this, just to prevent, eu, you know, surprises...)
