Deletion Policy
Votes for deletion

Rules and procedures:

  1. If you're too lazy to read the deletion policy, please, at least, carefully read this list of rules.
    1. But seriously, read the deletion policy.
    2. Do not put anything up for VFD that is not appropriate for VFD.
    3. Abusers of the policy will be abused by the claw end of a hammer. You have been warned.
  2. If you have an article that meets the criteria for VFD:
    1. Check the revision history of the page. It may have been vandalised, or just badly edited over a long period of time. If so, find a better version and revert the article. It may not be suitable for deletion.
    2. Add {{vfd}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
    3. Provide an initial vote (see below) and include a comment as to why you have placed the article on VFD.
  3. If you are here to vote on the deletion/salvation of articles:
    1. Thank you.
    2. No really, thank you.
    3. Edit the section for the article you are addressing.
    4. Pick a space under the appropriate heading (Keep, Delete, Comment), add your sig/comment preceded with a #
      1. # - Creates a numbered bullet for your entry and makes sure that things are formatted correctly (do not put a space before the #).
      2. Comment - If you care to, leave a comment, even if it is as short as "The article is not at all funny". Votes without comments are less useful in analyzing the quality of an article.
      3. --~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.
  4. Do not revert edits of the administrators.
  5. If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month or you will get a bollocking.
  6. If you are neither an Administrator nor a designated Poopsmith, do not remove anything from VFD; doing so will get you banned for a very long time.

Pages for Deletion


Make sure that you have read the rules (above) and the deletion policy. Please don't nominate Main Page or Votes for Deletion; that joke has been done so many times we might just beat you with a nail bat before we tear our hair out in frustration. This also applies to Featured Articles and Uncyclopedia In-Jokes.

How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages):

Notes for Administrators:

  • Allow at least 24 hours before closing a nomination or deleting an article.
  • Remember to delete any unused images from deleted articles and, if necessary, check what links to the article and remove any backlinks. Make sure to delete any broken redirects created as well.
  • To avoid confusion, try to remove closed nominations which cause the page to exceed to 20 articles.
  • If a nomination is kept, please add {{Oldvfd}} to the article's talk page.

To add an article, edit this section, and follow the directions in the comments.

Don't flood VFD full of articles, or at least leave a space between your nominations.

If you increase the number of articles on VFD to over 20, you will be blocked for 1 day, no exceptions. This means do not increase the number of active votes on VFD to over twenty. Inactive votes are shown with either a red link (where they have been deleted), or with the 🔒 Closed nomination H T D Oldvfd Archive tag to indicate that the article has been kept. You have been warned.

Please remember to check an article's history, in case of recent or long term vandalism, before nominating an article. Also, check the article's talk page and 'What links here' for prior nominations. If the article has been nominated before there will be a link from a VFD archive page.

  • Symbol delete vote Delete. randumb taken to new heights. It is more about trying to mention every 2006 inside joke than the nominal subject. --Mn-z 19:44, January 25, 2013 (UTC) vote withdrawn per fix tag. --Mn-z 08:56, January 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol delete vote Delete. Dittos; plus, run-on sentences in the Intro make me dizzy. Romartus has my proxy to switch this vote to Symbol keep vote Keep if he feels he can do anything on this theme. Spıke Ѧ 19:48 25-Jan-13 More dittos. Spıke Ѧ 10:37 26-Jan-13
  • Re:Spike I don't really think there is anything of value in this article. The closest it comes to an actual joke is referencing the unbalanced electoral system of pre-1832 Britain, and it does that poorly. --Mn-z 20:02, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
    Well, I cleaned it up until superficially it is good enough to keep. I agree it is still mostly about nothing, which is something Romartus could surely rectify. Spıke Ѧ 20:06 25-Jan-13
    quote "Parliamentary Reform in Britain happened in Canada in 1942. It is the reform of all things Prime Minister-y. It is also the third evolution of Electrode, the ball pokemon." Then it goes downhill from there. While the article formatting has been improved, but the article itself is hardly better than filler text. --Mn-z 20:16, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
    Hold, please. Romartus promises on his talk page: "Put a fix tag on it and I will knock something out that will be an improvement." Spıke Ѧ 21:19 25-Jan-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. a typical pointless colored box template. This is a parody of another template that was deleted, which makes it an orphaned inside joke. --Mn-z 13:12, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. And it is a magnet for the Template Spammer, who yesterday learned he can evade a ban by moving to different seats in the Public Library, or something. In the debate on that deleted template, I had objected when the subject of the vote was changed in midstream to delete all ten-or-so of these, but I heartily support their deletion. Spıke Ѧ 13:30 25-Jan-13
  3. Code copied, now no pages left for this template. Aleister 20:33 25-1-'13
  • I don't know, this one might only be used on Snake articles and be alright for that purpose (i.e. Corn snake). I'll check the links here thing and remove it from any other. Aleister 13:34 25-1-'13
    I would object to that on two reasons. First, I don't like starting articles with bright boxes o' canned humor. Second, it is a reference to another, deleted template, making it a orphaned inside joke. --Mn-z 15:24, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
    The reason we have any such templates is to parody the templates that Wikipedia's most tedious editors use to get other people to do the work. Wikipedia has no templates to describe a page for the benefit of the reader; and all of these that we have serve as an easy tool for Anons to put their stamp on an article without the painful chore of actually writing humor. Spıke Ѧ 15:32 25-Jan-13
    I would also point out that we actually have a template that does what the Wikipedia templates do, it is called template:fix. --Mn-z 15:38, January 25, 2013 (UTC)
    Since an IP is using it, HowAbout:Just protecting it? It seems to fit very well with the Snakes on a Plane page (hmmmm, there's a whole list of snakes on a plane pages, UnBooks and unpoetia too). In relation to the other templates, it seems to stand alone well, maybe just on those pages. The reason I knew of it was because I've edited "Corn snake", and it's there. When I first saw it I smiled (and even if we don't use NSFW templates most people know what they are and would get the joke, imnho). Aleister 16:35 25-1-'13 (I guess I'm leaning towards saving it but with the limited user votes on these pages now it may be best to talk it out)
    You can not "protect" template transclusions. Protecting the template would only stop users from editing the template, not using it elsewhere. In fact, {{VFD}} itself is protected. In theory, there is code that could prevent this from appearing on certain pages, but it is complicated, and I don't know how to do it at the moment. Also, in theory, wikia could stop its usage on the spam filter level, but that is even more complicated, further beyond my knowledge, and any page with a spam-trigger is unedittable until the spam trigger is removed.
    I would suggest finding the few pages this is relevant on, copy-pasting the code, then deleting the template. --Mn-z 16:46, January 25, 2013 (UTC)

  2. Symbol delete vote Being an account of this voter's tragicomic and self-evident rationale for the deletion of this page...which deviates from the form of an encyclopedia article for no conceivable purpose other than letting the author pat himself on the back. Spıke Ѧ 18:04 20-Jan-13

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Anyone who looks up an article on Lawrence Bass by typing "Trout Larry" gets an overlong play on his fish surname, followed by a long, pointless ramble on gambling addiction and Star Wars. Spıke Ѧ 18:01 20-Jan-13
