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

  • And on 17 July 2007 an IP made a single edit, which was to spam an ad for Slackware into the article in a new section titled 'usage'. It sticks out like a sore thumb if you read that far. Apparently nobody noticed (maybe nobody's ever read that far in the article), since the section is still there, still just as serious and non-funny as it was the day it was plopped into the article. Snarglefoop (talk) 19:32, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
    I just read it, it isn't clear to me it's an ad, nor that it's unfunny, nor why it is funny if it is meant to be funny. A fifth Delete vote and no one has to answer this question. But you are free to try to improve an article while it is being voted on. Spıke ¬ 19:51 16-Sep-14
    Eh hmmm.... I just re-read it, and I think I was wrong -- that section is 'way too over the top to be a serious ad for Slackware. Microsoft uses it internally, and the Debian project uses it for their servers -- yeah right. And out here in the real world, the shuttle uses used IBM software, and IBM has its own version of Unix. So, I guess the author of that section took me in, at least. (And I'm still undecided on whether the article is salvageable which is why I voted neither yay nor nay.)

  1. Symbol delete vote Stanley Random Article. The humor strategy is randomness and its basis is totally dependent on a concept developed at some other website. And no, the Wikipedia link is not to the corresponding page but to a list of hoaxes. Spıke ¬ 14:38 2-Sep-14
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Random is the operative word with this. If it hadn't been so long, I would have let it go..but it isn't is it? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:40, September 2, 2014 (UTC)
  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Confusing though somehow funny? Even so not funny enough to warrant the absurdity. User talk:Moonhead42 6:26, 3rd september.
  4. Starts off badly and turns into an apparently serious article. The fact that it is a hoax does not suffice to make it acceptable. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talk contribs paper sauce) 22:51 6 Sep 2014
  5. Symbol delete vote Delete. This is ripped off from an article at ChessVariants.org, much of it copied word for word. That, and it's not especially funny. (I suppose it was originally inspired by Fischer Random Chess, which is a real game.) Snarglefoop (talk) 22:20, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

  1. A fine piece of work by notoriously bad writer Mr-ex777, who is now not here to add his negative two cents. User:Llwy-ar-lawr/Faggotry is my attempt at a rewrite, which I've brought over from the fork; this is the last revision prior to Mr-ex's rewrite. I suggest replacing the current article with one or the other of those. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talk contribs cold cats) 16:51 16 Sep 2014
  2. Symbol delete vote Replace. The article leads with the trite "nobody knows" theme and has entire sections disparaging "furfaggots" and Jews. Pre-rewrite was list-heavy and its main humor strategy was in calling various groups faggots. Spıke ¬ 17:00 16-Sep-14
  3. Symbol delete vote Annihilate Ugh. Does the world really need an article on this topic? Snarglefoop (talk) 19:16, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
  4. Symbol delete vote Delete. Starts off as your standard VFD-bound unfunny article, and then escalates towards intentionaly offensive insults at Jews, like a tamer Encyclopedia Dramatica (I couldn't care less about bronies, but it seems "furfaggot" is pretty much the same thing). In short, being offensive for shock value instead of humour value. ConCass2 (talk) 19:48, September 16, 2014 (UTC)
