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

Zombiebaronvs.Braydie

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.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. This article is not that bad, but it has too much randumbo and forced association with the Folk Force to really be good. However, I wrote a similar article at Uncle Tom that I think says everything that was worth saying in this article, but better, with less randumbo, and with a pagename that someone might search for. --Mn-z 15:34, January 31, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. If you say it has to do with the Folk Force, then it has to do with something, although it doesn't seem to. It is a ramble by Anon from 2006. It only contains humor if mentioning stock racial stereotypes on the page is funny. Spıke ¬ 15:41 31-Jan-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. This marvelous template inserts a random word or phrase, in a random color, in a random typeface. Its final mainspace use, at Baseball was long-undetected vandalism--final, that is, until Anon today started salting the encyclopedia with it. It is a key tool in the vandal's tool kit, with no legitimate use except to paper over the absence of creative writing with performance art. Spıke ¬ 23:07 30-Jan-13

    That's not this, Aleister. BS is not Balls and Strikes but the reason there was a random phrase at the start of the first paragraph, and numerous places throughout the article. But I am mistaken above; it was not "long-undetected" but the work of the same vandal today. Spıke ¬ 23:19 30-Jan-13
    ?? No, I knew that, I was just commenting on that great pic on Baseball. I voted delete on the template. You need sleep, and a nightcap, and some of those special brownies that it looks like New Hampshire will soon be legalizing. Aleister minutes later

    Well, this page has been created by an anon, and it has not been improved for 3 days. Also, most of the time anonymous users expect other people to improve and finish their page. I don't think he's gonna improve it now, anyway. And the article is so bad, the only way to improve it would be deleting all it's content and completely rewriting it. --RockoRocks (talk) 12:04, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

  • Your entry made me smile, so I'll read the article later. I put a template on it yesterday, and it seemed fine, but I didn't read much. It would be kind of ironic, as writers, if we once again sacked the Great Library of Alexandria, so I have a feeling we all can pitch in and save this. And I have a thing for great libraries, so there's that. Virginia. hahahahahahhahahaha. Aleister 17:32 28-1-'13
    Abstain pending Aleister. A Great Library in Alexandria, Virginia does sound like a comedy strategy, if it includes the city's Branch Libraries and Bookmobiles. The intro, though, says that it was named for a sexy woman. It is not "about" Scottish midgets; but it is full of Randumbo. Aleister, make it "about" something. Spıke ¬ 18:00 28-Jan-13
    There was no writing on the page worth saving, but I think we do need a page by this name - an affront to uncyclopedia to huff this title. So, I made a slight improvement. Feature. Aleister 23:20 30-1-'13

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Horribly written. The usual grade-school effort to take a character from birth (emphasizing mother's anatomy) through life. The comedy strategy of morphing a lake into a coffee-house singer doesn't work, never touches base with reality, and isn't pursued consistently. It only seems to exist as part of a set.

  • 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 ¬ 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)
