Using Farage as a meme is inexplicable but might be an attempt at a running joke, and doesn't by itself disqualify the article.

#{{Keep}} I sort of quite liked the concept, mainly that German is the last, and smallest, of the languages.

#{{Keep|A Classic.}} Hilarious and clever. This is not about writing an Uncyclopedia article. It's a parody of comedy writing in general and critique of the overuse of memes in place of actual jokes. This was one of the first articles I read on Uncyclopedia and one of the first to get me interested in this site, so I would think that there are others who find it amusing as well. --{{User:Xamralco/sig}} 02:21, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
#{{Keep}} I see where the Reverend's coming from it is an intended spoof of the sign and in my mind it works. Perhaps more paragraphs could be added like the history of the sign but at the moment it stands as one of those non-encyclopedic ones that can be accepted because as they are funny. Perhaps it some of the languages the words could actually read phrases that are stereotypical of that country's way of speaking or are that country's stereotype of Americans. For example as a joke add a British English language translation and an Aussie one. The joke works for people who know what Checkpoint Charlie is and a helpful wikipedia template has been provided by author. I do not think the picture is needed but instead a photoshopped version in which the writing on the page is put onto with the picture filling up the page. I will attempt to rewrite how I think the article could look better in my user space however for the moment it is funny. {{User:ScottPat/sig2}} 10:00, June 11, 2013 (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.

    It was about Samuel L. Vacuum before it was rewritten to be about how terrible that concept was; see Comments. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:03 23 Nov 2014
Keep (2)
  1. Symbol keep vote A Classic. Hilarious and clever. This is not about writing an Uncyclopedia article. It's a parody of comedy writing in general and critique of the overuse of memes in place of actual jokes. This was one of the first articles I read on Uncyclopedia and one of the first to get me interested in this site, so I would think that there are others who find it amusing as well. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 02:21, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    Mocking bad writing by imitating it simply produces a bad page. Your apparent knowledge of the point of this pointless article is not evident by reading the article. Spıke ¬ 14:36 23-Nov-14
  2. Symbol keep vote New low. Deleting featured articles? Petty petty. I don't particularly like it but enough people voted for it to highlight the site that you can't outright delete it. --Nikau (talk) 06:28, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    Some featured articles can be utter shite. This one isn't terrible, but if it was exactly as it is now and didn't have the "featured" at the top, it would be VFD material. ConCass2 (talk) 11:26, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    This vote ought to be disregarded because it is based not on the quality of the article, but on an objection to the policy. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:02 23 Nov 2014
    More problematic is disparaging fellow voters ("Petty petty"), a trend I thought had stopped when Shabidoo threw his Wikia pass-key down the gutter. However, you started it with the comment below, which suggests that a goal was to purge the site of a specific author. I famously enforce civility not with creative vote counting but with the ban-stick. Spıke ¬ 17:25 23-Nov-14
    I find it ironic that you would call Nikau's comment one that disparages other users and at the same time call my opinion of the article "apparent knowledge" that "is not evident by reading the article." That's a tad belittling, wouldn't you say? --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 21:17, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    No I wouldn't, not ironic, not disparaging, and not belittling. I asserted that your statement about the point of the article is not evident from reading the article, that's all. Spıke ¬ 22:18 23-Nov-14

  • While it was created by Evilcorporatemetaljesus, it was rewritten by Mrmonkey72. Adding this because its original creator was mentioned in another discussion as having written this and other poor-quality articles. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 00:40 23 Nov 2014
  • The current policy at Uncyclopedia is to protect featured articles. If anyone feels strongly about this then a forum can be created to discuss it there. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:36, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
  • 24 hours hasn't yet elapsed. Other articles are allowed more time; shouldn't this stay open a tad longer? -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 23:11 23 Nov 2014
