#{{Delete}} In depth analysis, stage-by-stage using maps, of a made-up conflict that only the author cares about. Complete with made-up statistics like "123,456" as well. {{User:ScottPat/sig3}} 09:49, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

*I voted {{Keep|Keep}} [[Uncyclopedia:Votes_for_deletion/Archive235#The_Last_World_War|last time]] based on Aleister doing work, a commitment that he says in the ballot he never made. I had been moved at the concept of the unknowability of a Last War; now I find the concept undeveloped and I think the bit about humanity going extinct and the author being a panda is dumb. Llwy is working on it, but the maps Anton199 likes suggest to me comic book, not encyclopedia; and the problem is the text, which needs a better comedy theme than "War so nutty!" {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:48 11-Oct-14</small>

*:Not much in the original version worth keeping, nor even worth the time to give it mark-up. I've deleted a lot of cruft from the current version; there is material inside that one could make an article out of. The content-free Intro prepares the reviewer for the worst. Unfortunately, the new author of [[Dudley]], {{U|Mjr74}} lives far away from Devon, if I read my maps aright, so we can't saddle him with this. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:25 12-Oct-14</small>

#{{Delete}} Article, ostensibly about group sex, makes the point that Catholics whip sinners, and keeps making it and making it until it becomes totally non-encyclopedic and the goal is to see how far into the reader's head it can be driven, not to be funny. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:11 13-Oct-14</small>

#{{Yuk|Delete}} I confess I only read the first paragraph. (If anyone wants to tell me I'm an irresponsible jerk for nomming it without first reading the whole thing, go right ahead ... but please read the whole thing yourself before you do that.) [[User:Snarglefoop|Snarglefoop]] ([[User talk:Snarglefoop|talk]]) 13:15, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
  +
#:Yeah, I'll step up to that task; the reason VFD is here is to ensure authors that their stuff won't be deleted without discussion, vote, and 24-hour notice; and authors should get the additional safeguard of knowing that any nominator will evaluate the whole thing. (Even the history, as the rules require, and perhaps the talk page.) If all you know is that it has a crappy Intro, repair might not require deleting the entire page. If you had gotten to the end, you would have seen a hint that this is one of the articles fleshing out {{U|Mnbvcxz}}'s pregnancy infatuation. Some voters may view this as an inherent part of the history of Uncyclopedia. On the nomination itself, I'm abstaining. Cosgrove is a celebrity but there is no real comedy point to us speculating about her innards. We have deleted knock-offs of this meme. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:23 13-Oct-14</small>
  +
#::Wait ... did you say this is a ''meme?'' Like, claiming weird stuff about Miranda Cosgrove's organs is a standing joke on the Internet? I don't understand the world. That is clear. [[User:Snarglefoop|Snarglefoop]] ([[User talk:Snarglefoop|talk]]) 14:55, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

#:I meant only an Uncyclopedia meme or [[Uncyclopedia:In-jokes|in-joke]], though this is not in any official list; not that it goes wider than Uncyclopedia. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>15:03 13-Oct-14</small>

#I, on the other hand, ''did'' read the whole thing, and I came to the same conclusion. Indeed, uterine newts (and sometimes eels) and Miranda Cosgrove (who played Carly Shay in [[iCarly]], which may have originated the newt-pregnancy meme) are injokes here, perpetuated by Mnbvcxz--and I don't find the newt pregnancy stuff to be funny, which is to be expected from something that is merely an expression of someone's fetish. On this tine of the fork, arousal does not equal amusement. I will also echo the importance of reading the whole article, as [[Chess]], which has a sucky intro but a perfectly good middle, was deleted on the fork in Forest Fire Week, IIRC after being tagged by someone who often does not read past the intro and has thus destroyed several perfectly good articles. This anecdote is here not to shoehorn in goings-on at another random website for no reason, but to provide an example of what we shouldn't do here. {{User:Llwy-ar-lawr/sig|20141013154855}}

#::Well, you see, I think of it as citing Uncyclopedia to prove a point about Uncyclopedia. Clearly you don't see it that way, and your opinion is no less valid than mine so I suppose I'll just keep my mouth shut. {{User:Llwy-ar-lawr/sig|20141013162602}}

#{{Keep}} To be clear, Sheffield has 6 Members of Parliament, including deputy prime minister Nick Clegg but not including Nigel Farage. Using Farage as a meme is inexplicable but might be an attempt at a running joke, and doesn't by itself disqualify the article.

*{{Yuk}} So after being double-barked at over wimping out after the first paragraph, I went back and read the whole thing. It is a fantasy piece of the sort dreamed up by 12 year old boys, which gave the author the chance to write "uterus" many times and even use such exciting terms as "cervix" and "reproductive system" in a few places. Unfortunately most of it is too far away from reality to be taken as anything except nonsense, and ''none of it is funny''. Furthermore, down at the end, it mutates briefly into a Wacky War article, which doesn't really improve things.<br>On the plus side, the grammar and spelling are both very clean. And that'll get you a free ride on the MBTA (at least, it will if you've also got two dollars along, to put in the little 'contributions' box at the front of the bus).

#{{Replace}} or something. The actual content is pretty good and the main problem seems that the article is hard to read. It would be good if it was replaced by Llwy's "translated" version, but the original should probably be kept as a subpage and linked to in the See also section, because there are people who will actually find reading the page in Pig Latin more amusing than reading it in English. Also, the page doesn't have to be deleted at all: the original one could be kept where it is now, and Llwy's version can be pasted at [[Pig Latin]]... {{User:Anton199/sig}} 16:19, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

#:And you don't need a vote of VFD to replace a redirect that doesn't delete an Uncyclopedian's substantive work. But I won't flip my vote anyway; I don't want the gimmicky version to exist, because editors spend time polishing the codification that they could spend writing funny stuff. I recently tweaked [[HTBFANJS#Pages that look like the things they're about]] to be a little more disapproving; for instance, to cite only articles that have more than a gimmick, versus articles that pursue a gimmick unusually well. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:31 21-Oct-14</small>

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)

And about the absurdly long movie titles: I don't find "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" or "...the Raiders of the Lost Ark" very long, so there seems to be no basis for that comedy theme in this article.

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 voted Symbol keep vote Keep last time based on Aleister doing work, a commitment that he says in the ballot he never made. I had been moved at the concept of the unknowability of a Last War; now I find the concept undeveloped and I think the bit about humanity going extinct and the author being a panda is dumb. Llwy is working on it, but the maps Anton199 likes suggest to me comic book, not encyclopedia; and the problem is the text, which needs a better comedy theme than "War so nutty!"

I've deleted a lot of cruft from the current version; there is material inside that one could make an article out of. The content-free Intro prepares the reviewer for the worst.

  1. Yuk Delete I confess I only read the first paragraph. (If anyone wants to tell me I'm an irresponsible jerk for nomming it without first reading the whole thing, go right ahead ... but please read the whole thing yourself before you do that.) Snarglefoop (talk) 13:15, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
    Yeah, I'll step up to that task; the reason VFD is here is to ensure authors that their stuff won't be deleted without discussion, vote, and 24-hour notice; and authors should get the additional safeguard of knowing that any nominator will evaluate the whole thing. (Even the history, as the rules require, and perhaps the talk page.) If all you know is that it has a crappy Intro, repair might not require deleting the entire page. If you had gotten to the end, you would have seen a hint that this is one of the articles fleshing out Mnbvcxz's pregnancy infatuation. Some voters may view this as an inherent part of the history of Uncyclopedia. On the nomination itself, I'm abstaining. Cosgrove is a celebrity but there is no real comedy point to us speculating about her innards. We have deleted knock-offs of this meme. Spıke ¬ 14:23 13-Oct-14
    Wait ... did you say this is a meme? Like, claiming weird stuff about Miranda Cosgrove's organs is a standing joke on the Internet? I don't understand the world. That is clear. Snarglefoop (talk) 14:55, October 13, 2014 (UTC)
    I meant only an Uncyclopedia meme or in-joke, though this is not in any official list; not that it goes wider than Uncyclopedia. Spıke ¬ 15:03 13-Oct-14
  2. I, on the other hand, did read the whole thing, and I came to the same conclusion. Indeed, uterine newts (and sometimes eels) and Miranda Cosgrove (who played Carly Shay in iCarly, which may have originated the newt-pregnancy meme) are injokes here, perpetuated by Mnbvcxz--and I don't find the newt pregnancy stuff to be funny, which is to be expected from something that is merely an expression of someone's fetish. On this tine of the fork, arousal does not equal amusement. I will also echo the importance of reading the whole article, as Chess, which has a sucky intro but a perfectly good middle, was deleted on the fork in Forest Fire Week, IIRC after being tagged by someone who often does not read past the intro and has thus destroyed several perfectly good articles. This anecdote is here not to shoehorn in goings-on at another random website for no reason, but to provide an example of what we shouldn't do here. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 15:48 13 Oct 2014

  • Yuk Yuk. So after being double-barked at over wimping out after the first paragraph, I went back and read the whole thing. It is a fantasy piece of the sort dreamed up by 12 year old boys, which gave the author the chance to write "uterus" many times and even use such exciting terms as "cervix" and "reproductive system" in a few places. Unfortunately most of it is too far away from reality to be taken as anything except nonsense, and none of it is funny. Furthermore, down at the end, it mutates briefly into a Wacky War article, which doesn't really improve things.
    On the plus side, the grammar and spelling are both very clean. And that'll get you a free ride on the MBTA (at least, it will if you've also got two dollars along, to put in the little 'contributions' box at the front of the bus). Snarglefoop (talk) 16:12, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

It would be good if it was replaced by Llwy's "translated" version, but the original should probably be kept as a subpage and linked to in the See also section, because there are people who will actually find reading the page in Pig Latin more amusing than reading it in English. Also, the page doesn't have to be deleted at all: the original one could be kept where it is now, and Llwy's version can be pasted at Pig Latin... Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:19, October 21, 2014 (UTC)
    And you don't need a vote of VFD to replace a redirect that doesn't delete an Uncyclopedian's substantive work. But I won't flip my vote anyway; I don't want the gimmicky version to exist, because editors spend time polishing the codification that they could spend writing funny stuff. I recently tweaked HTBFANJS#Pages that look like the things they're about to be a little more disapproving; for instance, to cite only articles that have more than a gimmick, versus articles that pursue a gimmick unusually well. Spıke ¬ 16:31 21-Oct-14
    We could also have the Pig Latin and English versions side by side in the same article, with a table or something. That seems like enough of a compromise to satisfy everyone to some extent. In any case, I hope we preserve the history instead of just deleting the thing and moving 'mine' on top, because the real authors should be given credit. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 22:47 21 Oct 2014
    No, please! We ought not put fairness to previous authors on a par with having an article hang together and look good.

Perhaps you could summarise the plot points you were parodying, for the benefit of us lazy bums who can't be bothered to watch the movies? -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 23:53 20 Oct 2014

  • I still recommend watching the movie so you know what you're reading about. I can't see any reason someone who doesn't know what an article is about would find anything funny about it if they don't get it. If that's the case, I could spend the next week adding VFD to so many articles on this site.--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 09:41, October 21, 2014 (UTC)
    I know perfectly well what I'm reading about, as I said above. I could guess what the movie was about from your article, actually. There is nothing that can justify turning it into what you turned it into. Nothing. Besides, the article shouldn't require intimate knowledge of the subject matter to be comprehensible; if it does, and if many readers haven't got that knowledge, it probably shouldn't exist. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 13:38 21 Oct 2014
    Yeah cause alot of people just read random articles they know nothing about. My point is, it's not funny to you few people, yet the ones I showed it to found it pretty funny indeed. I just don't agree that the small majority of voters against something is able to rule out an article as being unfunny, just because it's not the type of humor they enjoy. So what it comes down to, is if it doesn't please you couple of people who have time to vote for peoples work to be deleted because you don't personally like it, that means it should not exist for those who do. right? I dunno, maybe it's non Australians not getting Australian humor? Too bad there is no Uncylcopedia.com.au I guess.--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 15:33, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

"His brother, Han Solo", "a sickly young man, who contracted the terminal disease, bad-ass", "closet-gay extraordinare Benjamin Franklin"... I can explain several jokes but they still aren't funny. And about the absurdly long movie titles: I don't find "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" or "...the Raiders of the Lost Ark" very long, so there seems to be no basis for that comedy theme in this article. It might not have to be deleted, but most of its parts should be rewritten. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:30, October 22, 2014 (UTC)
