*Wacky Wiki War! I deleted the dumb lists of memes, but that doesn't leave much. Intro tries to morph Wikipedia into a movie in the right way: by misusing actual Wikipedia catch-phrases. Unfortunately, it doesn't use them in a way that has any special meaning. That would be clever. It seems there are two sequels? Together, would they make one good article? {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:44 20-Oct-13</small>

#{{Delete}} Wilford Brimley is one of the minor memes on the website, and this article is for people who wanted him to be a religion — without doing the least to cleverly show how the real Brimley might resemble a religion.

* First read through put it on the borderline. Second read through and it's a weak attempt. Just not funny enough to warrant it's inclusion as a non-encyclopaedic article, and it doesn't quite fit into any other namespace. A decent rewrite and it could become a “HowTo:Borrow five bucks”, or maybe “UnScripts:That guy you once knew”. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|07:21 29 Oct 2013}}

* 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.

*::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.

#{{Delete}} Absurdly long anything is now a trite old joke. Using {{Tag|math}} to write 6 in the most complicated way possible, and then repeating it 22 times, is just self-congratulation.

#{{delete}} Completely disagree with the above rationales. The wacky religion angle is a good way to work with a very limited topic. What kills this is lack of cohesive nonsense - random humour works best when there is an inherit illogical logic, like a Douglas Adams book. Add to that poor spelling, grammar, formatting, and lack of images. Something more like [[crossbow]] would work - this doesn't. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|07:27 29 Oct 2013}}

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.

#{{Delete}} Rather old and has not been improved on since several months ago. There is some concept but this is probably the same one as of [[HowTo:Write An Article That Stands No Chance Of Featuring On Uncyclopedia]] and maybe [[HowTo:Write an average Uncyclopedia article]], but with the worse prose, less worked out structure and a title that is not justified (the author does not even talk about writing HowTos, he comes back to it but is still always off-topic). For those who may say that it still has some humour, I provided the above two links: these two articles serve for the same purpose but are funnier. {{User:Anton199/sig}} 19:24, October 31, 2013 (UTC)

*ScottPat reviewed it a while ago and I apologize to him for making his efforts pointless, but the author himself did not take these comments into account. {{User:Anton199/sig}} 19:22, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
 
* I don't think this is a deleteable article based upon merit, but I support the author's right to request deletion. I'd recommend that it be added to QVFD rather than putting it to the vote, if that's what the author wants. If it were mine, and I didn't feel it had enough merit to survive, I'd be inclined to move it to my user space though. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|11:21 01 Nov 2013}}

***I think it's worth keeping. Far better than [[Worst 100 Ways To Be Castrated]] or [[Carebear]], which are two of my earliest attempts. But in respect of your right to delete your own work - and only because of that - I will vote to delete. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|12:37 01 Nov 2013}}

*{{Comment|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....

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

  • 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 (talk contribs cats) 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 (talk contribs hot dogs) 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 (talk contribs hot dogs) 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...)
