Deletion Policy
Votes for deletion

del log

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.

Pluto (planet)

Score: 0
Elapsed Time: 25732 hours
Keep (1)
  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. The existence of several inconsistent articles on the same topic is explicitly permitted. This one's Intro is a bit funnier than the other one. Also, nominator forgot to tag the article. Spıke Ѧ 01:10 26-May-13
I was 100% sure I did. I probably closed the browser before I saved, sorry. --Mimo&Maxus (Talk) 09:19, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
Delete (1)
  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. There's already an article on Pluto and the other one's funnier so I guess there's no reason for this one to exist --Mimo&Maxus (Talk) 21:27, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
  • An effort to merge the best of both articles, and remove the gradual vandalism, would be a great service. Spıke Ѧ 01:10 26-May-13

Plan B from Outer Space

Score: 2
Elapsed Time: 25767 hours
Keep (1)
  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. I acknowledge the logic of arguments for deletion, and will not address them. Instead I will appeal with my fondness for certain bad scifi movies. I consider Plan 9 From Outer Space, along with the story of it's production, a primo example of medicinal-grade schlock. I think this article is funny because it conveys a sense of what makes Plan 9 so funny. There is humor there, if you have the eye to see. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 18:26, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
    Would it flip your vote to discover that we already have an article on Plan 9 from Outer Space, which nominator has just fixed up a little? Spıke Ѧ 20:07 24-May-13
    Already saw that. No, I feel that the title of the actual film begs the question, "what about the other plans?" This piece of nonsense answers that question. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 20:19, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
Delete (3)
  1. I find it hard to come up with a simple reason for the deletion of ths article. As far as I can see, it's flawed from conception to publication. NRV.                               Puppy's talk page10:21 24 May 2013
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. A "Plan B" will inspire Anon that there are 25 remaining slots in the alphabet for his own unfunny Plan, and I see that nominator has found a couple of these. A list of what is left of this story arc from 2005 is contained in the article. There is no humorous content in this article aside from the fact that author has tried to create a funny article. Spıke Ѧ 11:47 24-May-13
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. What is the point of this text? Anton (talk) 17:51, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • I can't vote either way on this one. It's in dire need of a cleanup, fo' sure. And it needs a lot more funny. I just don't have the heart to put it out of it's misery --TheDarthMoogle (talk) 20:36, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol neutral vote Abstain. I respect parody articles and seeing as I have never heard of Plan 9 from Outer Space I don't know how good or bad it is. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:24, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Shame it's been slowly destroyed after all the years of neglect --TheDarthMoogle (talk) 11:36, May 21, 2013 (UTC)
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Reading this gave me the mehs. It's like an awful scifi film that doesn't know it's awful. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 04:23, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
  4. Symbol delete vote Delete. I understand why this article may be funny but it completely destroys the concept of Uncyclopedia and, in addition to this, offends the reader. I was not searching for boxes! Anton (talk) 17:49, May 24, 2013 (UTC)
  5. Symbol delete vote Delete. New "Box" article being re-written. This article does not contain a police box, it must be deleted. Delete! Delete! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:45, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • Responding to Moogle, I have rewound this article to March 2010 and done a light copy-edit. I don't like articles where the author focuses on himself, but it might work given the thesis here--that the article's subject is inescapably boring. Would nominators please get in the habit of explaining why they want us to vote to delete someone else's work? Spıke Ѧ 11:59 21-May-13
  • Good humour to it. I am copying into my user space to sort out its unencyclopedic nature. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:39, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • Ok I take that back only the pictures are funny. However I am completely redoing the writing and should be finished soon. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:08, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
  • Deleted; to be replaced by ScottPat rewrite. Spıke Ѧ 16:54 26-May-13

Trying too hard to make an acronym fit a pre-chosen word

Score: 1
Elapsed Time: 25873 hours
Keep (1)
  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. I know it is awful but that is because of the content and humour. The concept is fine and very good comedians can make something like this funny. It can be fixed with improvement and probably needs to be a HowTo (HowTo:Try to hard to make an acronym fit a pre-chosen work). It requires a bit of effort from a user. Unfortunately I have exams at the moment and I don't think I am good enough to make this funny (I could give it a try next week if it is still around). I vote to keep it to give inspiration to what could potentially be a great article. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:41, May 20, 2013 (UTC)
    Occasional votes that read, "Put it in my userspace and maybe I'll work on it" are unhelpful. Your vote that, if I may paraphrase, "I know it is awful but I am voting to support good writing, only I am not going to be the one doing it, just now," is less helpful. If you agree it is awful and cannot improve it while the vote proceeds, you are free to "give it a try next week" even if it is not still around. Spıke Ѧ 17:15 20-May-13
    I just thought maybe someone else could write it as there are many good writers and it is a fun subject to play with. It has too much potential to be deleted even though the style of humour currently is forced as you said. I am not changing my vote as I found the concept funny enough. Everyone has different humour styles. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:27, May 20, 2013 (UTC)
    That is a better rationale. Spıke Ѧ 17:32 20-May-13
    Sorry I struggle to write clearly sometimes. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:35, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. The title sums up one of the ways pubescent authors write crappy articles. The content is a list of examples. Anon just devised C.U.N.T. today--charming. Spıke Ѧ 00:21 20-May-13
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. My wife is currently making me a ham, egg and cheese sandwich. That sandwich, as yet unmade and nonexistent, is a better article than this miserable piece of whale dreck. It deserves an undignified death. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 16:49, May 20, 2013 (UTC)
  • The Intro tries its hand at authentic humor--but its topic, the U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act (whose title was overt manipulation) is treated superficially and with humor that is just as forced as the examples that follow. Spıke Ѧ 00:21 20-May-13
