Don't finagle with with the above template. Seriously. You may succumb to peer pressure.
 
   
And place the VFD tag on the page, dammit! Otherwise, we will scrape your balls with a rusty razor blade! If you don't have balls we are willing to improvise.

*Author is in the middle of the most gradual rage-quit in Uncyclopedia history (including nominating all his own stuff for deletion so that the rest of us have to drop everything and read his "work"), as it is unfair to him and a commentary on someone else's personality that he can't write funny things to himself all day that no one else will look for or appreciate.

*::Point to Aleister; nominator has the duty to make a token effort to find some quality somewhere, even during a purge of a namespace. I brought categories up to date after Aleister's mega-revert. Only the section on "tingle" seems to have no basis in reality, but maybe some of you recall something about Clarke that I don't. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:56 24-Feb-13</small>

|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?

#{{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'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.

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.

  • Author is in the middle of the most gradual rage-quit in Uncyclopedia history (including nominating all his own stuff for deletion so that the rest of us have to drop everything and read his "work"), as it is unfair to him and a commentary on someone else's personality that he can't write funny things to himself all day that no one else will look for or appreciate. Maybe this should be saved somewhere as evidence of something. Spıke Ѧ 12:17 12-Jun-15
You have a real knack for inventing unflattering motives for things you can't explain. Anyway, it has proved useful to have my stuff on VFD, not because I personally think it's bad (I think this article for instance is much funnier than articles I wrote that got featured like Rembrandt or Glory hole), but because they obviously aren't suitable for this site. Since when has Uncyclopedia been a comedy site anyway? ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 16:28, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
And about the gradual rage quit thing, it would have happened quicker but I have been a little busy. ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 16:30, June 16, 2015 (UTC)
