#{{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. [[User:ConCass2|ConCass2]] ([[User talk:ConCass2|talk]]) 15:56, August 6, 2014 (UTC)

#{{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 {{U|Picton}} created it in 2009. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>17:00 6-Aug-14</small>

#{{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 --[[User:Steveyt0|Steveyt0]] ([[User talk: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. [[User:ConCass2|ConCass2]] ([[User talk:ConCass2|talk]]) 20:39, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

*<s>{{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". {{Unsigned|Steveyt0}}</s>

*: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? {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:24 7-Aug-14</small>

*::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 --[[User:Steveyt0|Steveyt0]] ([[User talk:Steveyt0|talk]]) 20:18, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

#{{Delete}} Written to inform, not to amuse. Wikipedia says that Svelvik is in Vestfold County, Norway, not of urgent interest to our readership.

#{{Delete}} It's just a mostly-sexual list of crap not really about Oscar Wilde. I've already had my run in with sexually crude things not being funny and I find this to be no different. When it's not sexual, it's "Your Mom" and similar jokes of immature level. --LuMontyZ Was Here 19:21, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

#{{Delete}} Continual focus on non-celebrity individuals. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>10:31 12-Aug-14</small>
#:I have a similar problem with gratuitous potty humor. However, Oscar Wilde is not only Uncyclopedia's Patron Meme but a gay pervert, and thus the perfect Wildeism is gratuitous potty humor that is not really about Oscar Wilde. In fact, Wildeisms that don't have some sort of double meaning ought to be eliminated. I'm holding off voting; don't remember the details, but I seem to recall that all the site's Wildeisms are cross-linked; I got VFD's approval two years ago to delete some component of this and found I had to undo my work. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>19:35 10-Nov-12</small>

*Don't know how nominator got this nomination to be born with an age of 5 hours (probably cut-and-pasting the timestamp) but I've set it to the timestamp of his signature. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>19:35 10-Nov-12</small>
 
*Sorry about the timestamp deal. I just copied the template like the instructions said. Thanks for fixing it. I guess my beef with this article is that because it's "The Patron meme" it's fine, but my former article that revolved around Fire Emblem, shipping, and crude jokes about the shipping was delete after vote because it was "too crude." I just want some consistency here. LuMontyZ Was Here 17:40, November 11, 2012 (UTC)
 
*:Consistency? Dream on! {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>17:42 11-Nov-12</small>
 
*:Seriously, I try to show consistency (because it makes me more persuasive and proves that a Delete vote is not personal) but it is not required. Voters on VFD are voters, not paper-graders, and are allowed to vote any way for any reason; if they have criteria, they are allowed to have as many exceptions and special cases as to seem that there are no principles at all--though, again, that is less persuasive than consistency. Voters above all are not required to have the '''same''' criteria for what should stay and what should go. You ought not nominate something on VFD as real or perceived retaliation for the deletion of an article of yours. In addition, "too crude" might not mean vulgarity or sexual references; it might mean crude typography or facile humor, such as puns on people's names. It's conventional here to include [[User:SPIKE|links]] to what you are talking about so we can see for ourselves and perhaps give you more relevant advice. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>01:01 12-Nov-12</small>
 
*I get what you mean completely. It isn't personal. In fact, if I knew that this page was the Patron Meme of this site I wouldn't have bothered. I suppose as an aspiring math teacher I've been trying to grade papers. I hope I didn't come across as petty or angry. This is the article[[http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/User:LuMontyZ/Fire_Emblem:_Abridged]] specifically the version before today's edit. I appreciate any feedback. LuMontyZ 04:16, November 12, 2012 (UTC)
 
*:No need to feel that you shouldn't have VFD'ed the article. Any article, no matter how hallowed, shouldn't be allowed to stick around if it is a tedious mess, like this one. Somebody should reach in there and kick just about 90% of these "quotes" out on their sorry asses, for being devoid of humor.{{User:Bizzeebeever/signature|20121113163510}}
 
*::It was I who nominated that article of yours for deletion (see [[Uncyclopedia:Votes_for_deletion/Archive265#Fire_Emblem:_Abridged|archive 265]]) and I have now given you a detailed review on your user page. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>01:05 14-Nov-12</small>
 
*I'm glad someone agrees! I'm not sorry, it's just the feeling when you find out how, to use your word BizzeeBeever, hallowed something is. Then comes the feeling that says it's untouchable. <i>Lu</i> 00:15, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

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.

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.

  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)

  • 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)
