#{{Delete}} As this piece of vanity has been on the site since 2007, I'll suppress the notion to just huff it administratively. "Look at me, I'm breaking the rule" against planting links to userspace in the encyclopedia. An article on Self Promotion (should be "Self-promotion") that self-promotes is not a joke but a conundrum, and it has nothing else going for it. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:18 24-Jun-14</small>

*I don't know if it's possible, but is there a way to replace all the links to the reader's userpage instead of the author's? You know, if there is some sort of Template:Username link that would work that way (so that is a joke instead of actual self-promotion)?

*ScottPat replaced the links with links to a FA collaboration of his (and mine); while that is self-promotion, it's hardly clear to the reader. The article is more cryptic than before. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>10:29 5-Jul-14</small>
  +
*:I didn't just replace links. I attempted to write the article as a sport (it isn't finished only intro done). Looking back the Cotswold Olimpicks thing was overdoing the secondary theme of self promotion but it was more aimed at the appearance of the Olimpicks advertising itself on an encyclopedia instead of me, the author advertising myself, a joke that no one but Spike and I could have got. It hasn't been finished though and probably deserves deletion as I have very little time to finish it. {{User:ScottPat/sig3}} 08:26, July 7, 2014 (UTC)

|delete=#{{delete}} This page is, by its title, the epitome of scatter-shot. I would quote trim it, but this page has no theme. Is it trying to quote the internet cyber-terrorist group, or what? If so, the subject is too obscure. It is trying to compile every anonymous quote in the history of humanity? If so, the subject is too broad. --{{User:Mnbvcxz/sig5}} 12:12, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

#{{Keep}} If we are going to have an Unquotable namespace--and, for the moment, we are--then why not have a page setting out a coherent plan for it? UnNews has several such, and they used to be helpful. Indeed policy should not be "spread across 5 or 6 pages" and if you can find a better spot at which to unify it, tell me where it went and I'll flip my vote. You might find this page a useful place to set down guidelines so that the cruft you have spent so much time editing doesn't creep back. Or we might flesh this out into deadpan praise of people's use of dead men's quotations to fluff up their unremarkable present-day rhetoric. We have found gassy text elsewhere and not deleted an entire page that otherwise has a purpose. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>10:43 23-Feb-13</small>

#{{Keep}} It is clear from the first sentence that this article is joking. I don't like the patches of self-reference, but it was voted onto our main page and ought not be deleted.

*I'm no expert, but I'm sure that admins automatically "keep" featured articles or something like that. Also, this article is bigger and much more elaborate than the article you linked to.

#{{Keep}} It's a good example of Obfuscata, and probably should remain purely as that. Given it is Obfuscata, I don't see a huge argument for a rewrite of this to match a rewrite of the page it's a translation of. If the main page is rewritten to an extent that this is no longer relevant, then we can look at a rewrite of this at that stage. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|02:19 24 Feb 2013}}

#{{Delete|Delete, again.}} This is seriously bad use of the English language.

|comments=*{{comment}} I plan on a doing a reworking on the quotable mainpage. However, the main link template is intertwined with the various reskin pages.

*:Horrible indeed! The template ("tricked out" in the ever-self-congratulatory words of {{U|Some user}}) special-cases itself based on who its caller is, to give each caller the "elegance" of calling the same, single template to achieve radically different effects!

*{{comment|@ puppy}} if we need an article on Obfuscata, which would be a valid subject, it should be at [[Obfuscata]], not as a clone of a random navigation page.

::I agree that we should have an article at [[Obfuscata]] but the closest we have is at [[Obfuscation]]. I think this quotable page is a good example of Obfuscata, and we don't have an article at Obfuscata about the style of writing, so this should stay, at least until someone writes the Obfuscata page. You may consider this a challenge to write said page, if you like. Also, if someone ran Newtis Newtfield through a Swedish chef translator and called it the Sveedeesh Noot that would be funny.

#{{Keep}} Imrealized knows his history. This page, which I've never seen before, give the background of the Oscar quotes, something which uncyclopedia is infamous for. It outlines the start of the meme, and how it evolved. I don't understand why people want to delete the main pages of the Oscar Wilde quotes. The quotes themselves, when they are bad and are on good to stupid articles, sure, but not the historical pages themselves. What's the problem with leaving those few pages alone, especially one like this which educates about the beginning of a tradition.

#{{Keep}} I didn't want to be the only holdout, so I proposed originally to userspace this piece of Uncyc history so that it wouldn't get deleted outright. But I think that since it does mention former Uncyc admins in the story, it does deserve a place in Unquotable as Uncyc history. The UN:CM test also takes into account whether any of the admins might have heard of it, and I do remember one or two of the admins mentioned here, though they are no longer active on this site.

#{{Keep|Selfish half-keep}}. I've hacked, trimmed, added, hacked and polished again. Without completely changing the concept, this is significantly improved.

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 don't know if it's possible, but is there a way to replace all the links to the reader's userpage instead of the author's? You know, if there is some sort of Template:Username link that would work that way (so that is a joke instead of actual self-promotion)? ConCass2 (talk) 12:12, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
  • Possible. Look! However, another problem is that it is one of the main jokes, and the content itself is pretty weak. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:20, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

  • I'm going to replace the links with Special:Mypage, since I for one really don't give a shit about who User:Dantoller may be. Perhaps we could have one section dedicated to this joke so that it doesn't go stale? ConCass2 (talk) 20:40, July 1, 2014 (UTC)
  • ScottPat replaced the links with links to a FA collaboration of his (and mine); while that is self-promotion, it's hardly clear to the reader. The article is more cryptic than before. Spıke ¬ 10:29 5-Jul-14
    I didn't just replace links. I attempted to write the article as a sport (it isn't finished only intro done). Looking back the Cotswold Olimpicks thing was overdoing the secondary theme of self promotion but it was more aimed at the appearance of the Olimpicks advertising itself on an encyclopedia instead of me, the author advertising myself, a joke that no one but Spike and I could have got. It hasn't been finished though and probably deserves deletion as I have very little time to finish it.

  • I'm no expert, but I'm sure that admins automatically "keep" featured articles or something like that. Also, this article is bigger and much more elaborate than the article you linked to. Speaking of which, why do several articles have duplicates? I mean, there are two different articles for dog and dogs. I'm sure we only need one for asexuality. ConCass2 (talk) 18:52, July 18, 2014 (UTC)
    It is not automatic for me, though deleting an FA should take more than a routine vote at this forum. Most of the other Admins do treat it as a hard-and-fast rule. Again, having only one Uncyclopedia article per subject is a giant non-goal. We explain the utility of multiple competing versions at HTBFANJS#Write nonsense well. Spıke ¬ 03:13 19-Jul-14
