*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>
+
*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. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>15:01 24-Aug-14</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.
+
*There's some funny stuff, and some stuff that didn't register with me. I'm not sure which way to go. {{User:Llwy-ar-lawr/sig|20140830004137}}
*::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>
+
*Note that this is different from a lot of the "town-cruft" we see, in that JC is actually kind of upscale; hence the bit about every household having at least three cars, and the "Let's make this too extreme to be plausible" bit about it being the preeminent city in several hemispheres. This is not a small town in Kansas, it's a rich suburb of the capital of Kansas. FWIW (WINM). [[User:Snarglefoop|Snarglefoop]] ([[User talk:Snarglefoop|talk]]) 22:33, September 20, 2014 (UTC)
*::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>
+
*If this means youse are getting cold feet about deleting the page, step up; otherwise, step up. This has gone on for forty days and forty nights. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>01:38 21-Sep-14</small>
  +
*:I dunno -- it's almost funny. Or parts of it are, anyway. So I don't really want to vote to delete. But it's like Halloween candy mixed with melamine; the good bits are all mixed up with a bunch of cruft, and so I don't want to vote to keep, either. And I don't want to volunteer to fix it, either, which would be another option. I guess I'd better do something, tho, so...

* 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. [[User:Snarglefoop|Snarglefoop]] ([[User talk: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. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>19:51 16-Sep-14</small>

*::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. (And I'm still undecided on whether the article is salvageable which is why I voted neither yay nor nay.)

#I believe I am the Admin to whom Mnbvcxz refers. The cases where I didn't realize something was a joke are numerous and legend. In the case I was thinking about, I patrolled an edit to this page and reported it in passing to Sannse without viewing the page as a whole. Although it does air grievances with Wikia and risks attracting trolling by resentful users and perhaps from the Fork, it is seriously funny. We ought to have room for a page imitating legalism, but with a litany not to "publish, copy, display, distribute, [or] put mayonnaise on"--especially when it already has a disclaimer at the start that it's not the real thing. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>19:04 14-Feb-13</small>

#::::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...)

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. Maybe throw in some obscure references to the caste system as India's apartheid, and voila, an article with jokes that only an anthropologist would get. Oh, well, whatever....

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.

  • 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
  • There's some funny stuff, and some stuff that didn't register with me. I'm not sure which way to go. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talkcontribs) 00:41 30 Aug 2014
  • Note that this is different from a lot of the "town-cruft" we see, in that JC is actually kind of upscale; hence the bit about every household having at least three cars, and the "Let's make this too extreme to be plausible" bit about it being the preeminent city in several hemispheres. This is not a small town in Kansas, it's a rich suburb of the capital of Kansas. FWIW (WINM). Snarglefoop (talk) 22:33, September 20, 2014 (UTC)
  • If this means youse are getting cold feet about deleting the page, step up; otherwise, step up. This has gone on for forty days and forty nights. Spıke ¬ 01:38 21-Sep-14
    I dunno -- it's almost funny. Or parts of it are, anyway. So I don't really want to vote to delete. But it's like Halloween candy mixed with melamine; the good bits are all mixed up with a bunch of cruft, and so I don't want to vote to keep, either. And I don't want to volunteer to fix it, either, which would be another option. I guess I'd better do something, tho, so... Snarglefoop (talk) 01:55, September 21, 2014 (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. 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 (talkcontribs) 03:55 18 Sep 2014

  • Symbol delete vote Delete. Articles which mention Barrack Obama in the first sentence when he is clearly not relevant do not deserve to be saved. Also, I prefer the rewritten one. ConCass2 (talk) 06:40, September 18, 2014 (UTC)

  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 (talkcontribs) 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 (talkcontribs) 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...)

  • Symbol comment vote Hmmm Actually there's one bit which might be salvageable, which is the idea that the black and white pieces represent characters in a race riot (OK it doesn't exactly say that in the article but it hints at it). 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. Maybe throw in some obscure references to the caste system as India's apartheid, and voila, an article with jokes that only an anthropologist would get. Oh, well, whatever.... Snarglefoop (talk) 14:17, September 19, 2014 (UTC)
    Yes, there's some merit there but it seems like the sort of thing that should be given centre stage in Chess and perhaps just a side mention in HowTo:Play chess. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talkcontribs) 19:57 19 Sep 2014

  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Bleagh. Why do people think making something so stupidly impossible that nobody could believe it for a second is funny? Like setting a Canadian political party in the second century BC. Somewhat akin to writing an article on Chuck Norris's tenure as Prime Minister of Canada (except CN as PM is actually possible, at least in principle). Snarglefoop (talk) 22:21, September 20, 2014 (UTC)
    I think the reason is that they haven't read (or taken to heart) HTBFANJS: Nonsense dates aren't funny by themselves. Nor acronyms. It's not clear he actually meant to "set" the topic in the second century BC — only that he probably didn't mean anything. Spıke ¬ 01:36 21-Sep-14

  • I am more comfortable with "intolerant" than "random." If a bigot wants to write a truly entertaining article, fine. This one starts out with a fanboy intro, a big long list where none of the items are developed but most are simple slaps expected to be funny on their own; and ends with a gigantic UnScript of hilarious bickering between opposing caricatures playing out in some Uncyclopedian's mind. But I'm not yet convinced it couldn't acquire a comedy strategy. "of All Time" in the title is surplus. Spıke ¬ 02:46 21-Sep-14
