Deletion Policy
Votes for deletion

Intensive Care Unit

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.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. I don't understand... Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 17:50, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
  • If you don't understand, than you probably have to type this in the Interenet. Date was a legendary Japanese warrior. But the article is not particularly good. Anton (talk) 17:55, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
  • I have reverted this to author Kamek98's last version (8-Dec-2012) before renouncing the website, undoing unambiguous vandalism by fleeting Uncyclopedian Cragsterdragon, and deleted most of the lists and all of the initial quotations. The article is still a meme-heavy fanboy rant, but no longer thoroughly ugly. Spıke Ѧ 18:43,18:47 28-Jun-13

  1. Something about Dick Van Dyke, not a lot about anything use and no connection to Scotland. LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ®
  2. Symbol delete vote "What the fuck, man!" As this article careens from furries to taxidermy to mental illness, neither Dick Van Dyke nor Oscar Wilde saves it. Spıke Ѧ 17:13 24-Jun-13
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Redirect to The Last King of Scotland as they are on the same subject and the Jacobite Revolution is told in this article. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:54, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
  4. Symbol delete vote Delete. Redirecting seems fine to me. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 00:51, June 28, 2013 (UTC)
  • Spike, by doing this method we would have to wait for the page to be deleted and then I would need to re-create it to redirect, surely if we keep the page (as I voted) then we can just blank it and redirect. Less beaureacracy (ahhh! Spelling!) and less hassle for same outcome. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:19, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
    (As background, I changed your Keep to a Delete as you seem aligned with us to get rid of the original article; I explain in my Change Summary that it is essentially a Delete with instructions to the moderator.) No, having been nominated, we ought to wait, both for the authors to step forward (tumbleweed illustration here) and for the quorum of 5 votes. You set out the most efficient way to get this done; but when the question is deletion of an entire page, we should mix fairness/openness with efficiency. If we vote to keep the page, then you ought not subsequently blank it; Keep (or deadlock) preserves the original contents, which ought not be renominated for a month. Spıke Ѧ 20:25 24-Jun-13
    Oh I see, thanks, I'll stay on delete then. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 05:53, June 25, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. I actually thought this was alright, possibly in the territory of one of our other tags but certainly not in the dark and sticky realms of VFD. --ChiefjusticePS3 06:46, June 15, 2013 (UTC)
Delete (3)
  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Not funny. Pretty true. Makes me fall asleep.--Uncycloperson (talk) 20:23, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. The author of this article was trying to be funny, but is trying harder to evangelize than amuse. The humor is along the lines of, "Everybody look at how wacky we gamers are!" Spıke Ѧ 21:07 11-Jun-13
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Might as well get rid of it. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 21:26, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
  • Nominator got this in before Simsie slapped the {{Fix}} on the article. Spıke Ѧ 21:07 11-Jun-13
  • Symbol neutral vote Abstain.Hmm, I think this is another salvageable article, like spam, so if it is okay, I could move it to my userspace, and work on it a bit. As much as I dislike Adventure Quest, this is a perfectly valid article topic, but the writing needs work. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 18:18, June 12, 2013 (UTC)
    As this vote is not a slam-dunk, for now copy the code to a page in your userspace if you like. Spıke Ѧ 14:52 19-Jun-13
  • If you can fix it, do it, but on the main wiki it does not belong. Quite boring until fixed.--Uncycloperson (talk) 00:06, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Checkpoint Charlie

Score: -1
Elapsed Time: 25347 hours
Keep (2)
  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. I sort of quite liked the concept, mainly that German is the last, and smallest, of the languages. I accept it's likely to be a target for vandals, but if there were some way of forcing people looking for Berlin to go through the page it'd be quite good. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 23:06, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol keep vote Keep. I see where the Reverend's coming from it is an intended spoof of the sign and in my mind it works. Perhaps more paragraphs could be added like the history of the sign but at the moment it stands as one of those non-encyclopedic ones that can be accepted because as they are funny. Perhaps it some of the languages the words could actually read phrases that are stereotypical of that country's way of speaking or are that country's stereotype of Americans. For example as a joke add a British English language translation and an Aussie one. The joke works for people who know what Checkpoint Charlie is and a helpful wikipedia template has been provided by author. I do not think the picture is needed but instead a photoshopped version in which the writing on the page is put onto with the picture filling up the page. I will attempt to rewrite how I think the article could look better in my user space however for the moment it is funny. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:00, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
    I have begun working on a potential replacement (if wanted/necessary) here. Any comments on my talk page or the talk page of that article or below would be appreciated. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:35, June 11, 2013 (UTC)
Delete (1)
  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. It seems that, at one time, to reach the Uncyclopedia article Berlin, you had to pass through Checkpoint Charlie. This is no longer true. (There is no Checkpoint Charlie any more, nor East Berlin, nor East Berlin). All that is left is the same phrase translated into various languages including Cherokee. If there is clandestine humor, English speakers will never know. Spıke Ѧ 22:13 10-Jun-13
