Votes for deletion

del log

The goal here is to improve the quality of Uncyclopedia, not to win a vote. You can edit a page during a vote. You can flip your vote if the page improves or if other voters convince you.

To nominate a page for deletion
  • Read these rules and the deletion policy.
  • Do not increase the number of active nominations on VFD to over 20, as a 1 day ban often offends. (Inactive votes, which are grayed out, don't count in the limit of 20.)
  • Please check an article's history before nominating it. If there has been vandalism, revert it to the best past version. Also, check the article's talk page to see if it is in Category:Deletion Survivor. If so, Special:WhatLinksHere will find the relevant VFD archive(s); read about how the previous vote(s) went.
  • Add {{VFD}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
  • If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month.

How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages)

To vote to delete or keep an article
  • Edit the section for the article in question.
  • To vote, start a new line at the end of the delete= or keep= section, beginning with #. This creates a numbered entry. Do not put a space before #. Increment the delnumber or keepnumber, whichever applies.
    • To post brief indented replies to a vote, start lines with #: with one or more colons; anything else breaks the numbered list.
  • To type a comment, start a new line at the end of the comments= section, beginning with * (as comments need not be numbered).
  • Votes with an explanation, and comments, are more helpful in analyzing the quality of an article.
  • ~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.

Do not delete any content without authorization. To change a vote, strike your old one and add a new one. Do not change other users' posts. At least 24 hours must pass before a nomination is closed or an article is deleted.

  • I cleaned up the red-links (some created in anticipation of writing a personal story arc on neighboring counties), the vanity, and the anti-cop rants; but it still has nothing more profound to say than racial minorities, indebtedness, and rude drivers. Classic "towncruft" that, in the case of England, we went on a drive to snuff out earlier in the year. Spıke ¬ 15:01 24-Aug-14

  • Some of the one liners are funny and can be used elsewhere. I just don't get why there are a bunch of legitimate office etiquette tips in there. The article makes no sense. Rocketsled (talk) 15:51, August 13, 2014 (UTC)
  • I have now backed out Anon's recent edits and reverted the page to 2012. You may flip your vote if you think it makes sense now; I still don't see any humor. Spıke ¬ 11:58 17-Aug-14
I checked through the history before submitting my vote; I came to the same conclusion as you, so I didn't bother. ConCass2 (talk) 13:18, August 17, 2014 (UTC)

  • New Uncyclopedian SamTheAwesome has addressed this. I am inclined to vote against any made-up war, and warned Sam against turning this into a personal story arc with his new The Great Whale Invasion (which I'd also vote to delete), but will hold off to see if he takes either anywhere funny.

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Another article whose title demands that the reader type the exact joke he wants to read, to see if we ever wrote it. Recasting the USA as a socialist/Soviet country is trite to begin with, and in part simply true. What this article provides is an extremist version of what Obama wants to do with America. Neither the parts that are too close to truth nor the parts that are paranoid are funny. Spıke ¬ 22:21 21-Aug-14

    One person (using three usernames) has repeatedly hacked at this article, seemingly based on real-world issues, then tried to nominate it here. This seems to be the first correctly-formatted VFD of it since 2007. (Click on Survivor in the section heading.) Spıke ¬ 12:14 25-Aug-14

  • Symbol comment vote Comment. [1], this Wikipedia page seems to suggest that the USSA was not an invention of Uncyclopedia and therefore may be typed into our searchbar. I'll have a look at it and see what to touch up. Obama being a socialist is only a joke that Americans will get as Britain's current (already quite dismantled) welfare state (and many other countries') makes Obama's policies seem rather Conservative. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:27, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
    I had a go but realized that it was far too factual (based on the USSA in Back in the USSA) and lacked humour. I would be happy to vote against if no one is willing to re-write. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:17, August 22, 2014 (UTC)
    Then I was mistaken that it was an article about nothing. Still, it is not humor but allegory. Spıke ¬ 13:12 22-Aug-14
  • I rewrite the intro, and replaced all the political wannabe-satire with genuine humour, the type that you'd expect on Uncyclopedia. Also, the rest of the article has a lot of appalling grammar errors. ConCass2 (talk) 21:48, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. The Intro and the quotations (the "Fat cunt" one is the only significant change since Dwight K Shrute finished this in 2010) give the impression that the point of the article is the joy of taking savage hacks at the former Irish leader, rather than taking some time to try to be inventive. Spıke ¬ 21:45 24-Aug-14
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Maybe there is some worthy humor that I can't understand, not being Irish. But the intro alone doesn't make me want to search for it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 22:58, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
