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.

  • I have no objection with using humour as a conduit for advocacy, but this article does nothing for me on the humour front. The only thing stopping me from voting to delete is my lack of familiarity with Glenn Beck. As he is commonly known in the US, and some of this article may rely on reader's foreknowledge - which I lack - I'm not really in the best place to make a judgement. But from my perspective, this is an unfunny article that relies upon foreknowledge that is somewhat parochial. I see it in a similar light to Zoe Tay below, except that he is well known in the anglosphere.                               Puppy's talk page08:08 02 Mar 2013

  1. I like this. George W's clangers are many and varied. While we are by far not unique in having a collection of them, it doesn't reduce the humour value of having a page of them. The random element allows the page to be kept at a reasonable size. It's very dated, but has merit.                               Puppy's talk page07:54 02 Mar 2013

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. This seems to be nothing more than a list of randomly generated real George W. Bush quotes. While I've seen worse examples of this, it would fall under the category of "borrowed humor." --Mn-z 07:33, March 2, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. this looks like a soft redirect to a foreign language uncyclopedia created just to pad the article count of quotespace. Sadly, it isn't even that, but a link to random categories on a foreign language uncyclopedia. --Mn-z 00:22, March 2, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. First line says, "For quotes in French, see:" Although styled as a disambiguation page, the options are four pages at our French counterpart, Desciclopedie. They are not entirely random; they are two reports of WhatLinksHere to templates like our {{Q}} and {{Citation}}, and apparently two articles on local memes including Jacques Chirac. This is outside the scope of this wiki; it's fun in its goofiness, but not as much fun with the time of English-speaking readers as we could be having. I dare say, mostly fun for the author.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Written, and revised overnight with 2010 census numbers, overtly to boost the city of Boise, just irreverently enough to fit on a humor wiki. Spıke ¬ 12:03 27-Feb-13
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. largely imaginary region (per wikipedia, the actual inland northwest refers to eastern Washington and northern Idaho). The author is overly excited about the fact that Boise is the 101st largest city in the United States. --Mn-z 13:41, February 28, 2013 (UTC)

  • I was considering a revert of the last editor, but the previous revision was no better. I don't know the area at all though, so have no idea what is relevant and what is just garbage. Is there any earlier revision which is better than the current? Is there a way to salvage anything worthwhile from it?                               Puppy's talk page01:58 28 Feb 2013
    I did exactly that yesterday, and concluded exactly that. Saw in the history that JesusLandMan in 2007 set out to "make it at least a little funny"; rev of 26-Aug-07, minus "Why Boise Sucks" is short but has a concept. 14:14 PS--I have indeed assembled a version based on that one; sorry I did not do this before nominating. I'll let my nomination stand; what do you think now, Mnbvcxz? Spıke ¬ 15:45 28-Feb-13

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Seemed funny at first, but i noticed the overly amount of immature humor.. i thought it would be fine apart from that everything was put in bold for no reason, but the text wall and the chuck norris joke at the end ruined it for me.

  • Symbol comment vote Abstain. A playground for I.P. Anon and other drive-by writers of one-liners isn't optimal, but it's self-contained. The template, though, is awful: "This page is under perpetual construction... It is an ever changing work...." That is in fact a better description of Uncyclopedia:Sandbox. Better to get them to finish it, to flesh out each of the 100 themes into funny paragraphs, as I now try to do on its talk page. Spıke ¬ 18:11 25-Feb-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. This article is based on the assertion that Arthur C. Clarke claimed to invent everything, insults directed to other dead sci-fi authors, and poorly implemented jabs at his allegations pedophilia. There is a bit of concept here, but very little execution, and not much more potential. --Mn-z 12:30, February 24, 2013 (UTC)

  • I see Aleister at work here and am holding off. The original article hit the same buttons ad nauseam but did start with a perfectly fine concept. Spıke ¬ 12:38 24-Feb-13
    Never saw this page before, checked the history (remember the rule about looking for a better version in the history????) and found out it's a Mhaille page, and reverted to his last edit. So by being a Mhaille page I surmise it contains very good material, but don't have time to read it now. Am going other places now, and one of them has food. Aleister 12:46 24-2-'13
    Point to Aleister; nominator has the duty to make a token effort to find some quality somewhere, even during a purge of a namespace. I brought categories up to date after Aleister's mega-revert. Only the section on "tingle" seems to have no basis in reality, but maybe some of you recall something about Clarke that I don't. Spıke ¬ 12:56 24-Feb-13
    The content is basically the same. Although it was created by an established user, it was also created in 2006. There is some content, but it could be collapsed to half a dozen quotes without losing any information. --Mn-z 13:12, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
    To answer my own question, WP:Arthur C. Clarke does not contain the word "tingle" so I'll kill three of the quotes for you. Spıke ¬ 13:16 24-Feb-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. This page is, by its title, the epitome of scatter-shot. I would quote trim it, but this page has no theme. Is it trying to quote the internet cyber-terrorist group, or what? If so, the subject is too obscure. It is trying to compile every anonymous quote in the history of humanity? If so, the subject is too broad. --Mn-z 12:12, February 24, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Starting with a nonsense year number in a preachy Intro before devolving into themelessness, this is another tribute to the namespace instead of a service to the reader. Spıke ¬ 12:16 24-Feb-13

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. If we are going to have an Unquotable namespace--and, for the moment, we are--then why not have a page setting out a coherent plan for it? UnNews has several such, and they used to be helpful. Indeed policy should not be "spread across 5 or 6 pages" and if you can find a better spot at which to unify it, tell me where it went and I'll flip my vote. You might find this page a useful place to set down guidelines so that the cruft you have spent so much time editing doesn't creep back. Or we might flesh this out into deadpan praise of people's use of dead men's quotations to fluff up their unremarkable present-day rhetoric. We have found gassy text elsewhere and not deleted an entire page that otherwise has a purpose. Spıke ¬ 10:43 23-Feb-13

The policy pages for unquotable are spread across 5 or 6 pages for no apparent reason, besides making the project look bigger than it actually is. What is said here could be said in one sentence.
