Deletion Policy
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. The usual unfunny crap. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 21:53, July 18, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Author Thekrust477, who was an Uncyclopedian for a single day in 2007 and had no contributions other than this, uploads for this, and one edit to Molten Gay, looks for automatic humor by writing Randumbo, relating it all to gayness, and peppering it with Chuck Norris and Oscar Wilde. I have spent two minutes failing to discern any comedy strategy, and it does not deserve more. Spıke Ѧ 02:27 19-Jul-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Anon complains on the talk page that the article is "too factual." I complain that author thought he was writing a comic book, with his bickering quotations, not an encyclopedia article. Spıke Ѧ 16:43 18-Jul-13
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. How did an article containing nothing but quotations not get put on QVFD the minute it was made? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 17:25, July 18, 2013 (UTC)

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. The "joke" is a made-up acronym that doesn't even fit. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 11:16, July 18, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. "Shit Under Supply of Uranium Ingots...is an acronym which does not make sense." Exactly. Even if moved to HowTo:, this article is not funny. Spıke Ѧ 11:46 18-Jul-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Not of interest to a general reader, only to the registered users who know Zim. Anton (talk) 09:48, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. As a registered user who knows Zim, I concur that this is not of interest to a general reader. Written for a competition in 2010 (in case anyone thinks the present competition got slim pickings!), it does showcase Zim's unique (until one visits Illogicopedia) sense of humor and his defiant use of typography. Possible arguments to Keep include that it is in the HowTo: space, in which we practice George W. Bush's "racism of low expectations," and that it was featured within that space. Out of deference to Zim, who still visits and even hits a few fungoes with his ban-stick, it should be moved to his userspace. Spıke Ѧ 11:54 16-Jul-13

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. I found this one from the talk page of Why?:Why? after previous VFD. Similar really. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 23:20, July 5, 2013 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Yes, it's similar. On the off chance the reader types "Why? Why? Oh Why?" into the search bar, he retrieves not clever comedy writing but merely a retort. Spıke Ѧ 03:48 11-Jul-13
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Too unoriginal. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:38, July 11, 2013 (UTC)
  4. Symbol delete vote NO! --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 19:21, July 17, 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)

  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)
