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.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. apparently, we have 3 versions of this article for some reason. --Mn-z 17:41, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Okay, so the joke is, since World War II was a "duplicate war" (of World War I) (only it wasn't except in the eyes of a grade-schooler who has two more years before taking a course on World History) (or was it a duplicate Stephen Spielberg movie?) create an Uncyclopedia article "in the style of the thing it's about" by creating an arbitrary number of copies. One copy for everything the reader might search for, and then some; a brilliant alternative to the Redirect. Spıke Ѧ 18:19 25-Mar-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. a new clone of a the article below, this one seems a bit worse. --Mn-z 17:37, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. "Uncyclopedia is a place for original comedy creations." This article even has a template ({{Merge}}), for Chrissakes, to advise the reader that it isn't one. Spıke Ѧ 18:22 25-Mar-13
  3. War is unhealthy for children and other cannon fodder. General Deletion 23:27 25-3-'13
  • Shall we leave the best one of these in mainspace and move it to World War II (movie)? Spıke Ѧ 18:22 25-Mar-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. more warcruft. This one is about WWII as a movie, and reads like it was written by a 10 year old. --Mn-z 17:35, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. I'm sure we've already voted to delete one of these clones. NRV. (And the same delete vote on the above.)                               Puppy's talk page01:27 26 Mar 2013

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. another wacky war article. This is prone to using capslock for no apparent reason. --Mn-z 17:26, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Notable as amateur fiction but certainly not as humor. The World Wars template reflects the fact that, at some point in our past, writing a new article about World War whatever was a cinch for permanence by meme (imitation). Spıke Ѧ 18:11 25-Mar-13
  • The others you list (as of now) are blah wars, not even worth fighting. This article seems like it had some thought into it, has lots of words and detail, its own maps apparently which follow the fighting, and might have redeeming value. I haven't read much of it, so maybe it's all jibberish under a candy covering, so for now I'll restrict this to a comment. The other ones, if you want to count my vote as a delete, please do so. Aleister 17:56 25-3-'13
    For the record, when counting, I am not going to hallucinate Aleister Delete votes onto a ballot based on discussion that occurs on some other ballot. Spıke Ѧ 18:11 25-Mar-13
