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.

  1. I created the page a couple of years ago by mainly copying and pasting other articles from other wiki's and this same wiki. I would like to have the article deleted as it is not suitable on wikia nor salvagable and I have no interest in trying to salvage it now. A lot of the article you can find just by simply copying and pasting the text into Google in quotes and it will bring up things like the transformers wikia. I also copied and pasted a lot from the actual GI Joe article on this wiki, so it's also a duplicate article. The contributions to the article by other members are entirely deletions, mostly deleting the cruft that I added or was copying and pasting. The various ip addresses that have edited the article are for the most part me. Though the edit history looks long, there has not been any significant contribution to it. I was new to the uncyclopedia rules and objectives of the site when I created the article, so I apologize for my poor editing. I've made better edits since then with the help of Spike specifically on the Game Maker article. The preceding unsigned comment was added by AnonSquirrel (talk • contribs)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Yeah, so no one is going to rework this as I set out below (and if they do, they can start over), so let's make it go away. HolUp, if you renamed this because you intend to fix it up, I'll strike my vote. Spıke Radiomicrophone00:52 11-Oct-16

  • Renamed from General Joseph B. Colton by HolUp; old name will still work. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:24 10-Oct-16
  • "Joseph Colton" is the "full name" of the G.I. Joe soldier doll. GI Joe was slapped with a maintenance tag and deleted by Skullthumper five years ago, so there is no duplicates problem. (I have gotten it off the mag-tape and looked at it, and deletion was too kind.) The name is ripe for ridicule by anyone who could make it relate to real-world military follies and/or the natural marketing impulse to rebrand a toy into a movie and a television show. The actual article rants at the reader and has no such theme, but that could be repaired. Spıke Radiomicrophone02:47 6-Aug-16

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Very unfunny, needs a total rewrite.--HolUp (talk) 03:27, September 18, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. This is complete Randumbo and its only intersection with real life is conservative memecruft, such as dropping the name of Ann Coulter and expecting it to be funny without work. A GOP Presidential nominee, a nice guy who finished last, and currently holding his nose until he turns blue as the party turned to Trump and away from — what was it that Romney offered? Dripping with potential for a rewrite. Spıke Radiomicrophone03:32 18-Sep-16

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Listy, a failed alternate history humor article if Canada had absorbed several of the northern states of the United States, especially those known for voting Democrat in election years. Relies on old tired memes for humor, and the main comedy strategy seems to be to disparage this "Canadia", which supposedly coexists with Canada. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 03:38, November 14, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. A crash course in everything we ask editors not to do. I de-listed and de-loused it but what's left is still seriously unfunny. Spıke Radiomicrophone05:40 14-Nov-16

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. A glowing retelling (by Ricky dilzen in 2007) of the story of an airplane passenger who got drunk and took a crap on the service cart. No original comedy concept. Spıke Radiomicrophone00:34 29-Nov-16

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. It's tidily written and has some nice-looking images, but there's almost no humor, and reads more like an Alex Jones essay rather than an Uncyclopedia article. In fact, according to the history, the article was created by a 9/11 conspiracy theorist.--HolUp (talk) 06:46, December 1, 2016 (UTC)

  1. Symbol keep vote Keep. This is an attractive page with a real comedy strategy: Hoax, allude to real-life conspiracy theories while creating new ones. I am as unenthused about hoax articles as I am about articles "in the style of the thing they're about," which are mere caricatures. But this article isn't awful. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:08 1-Dec-16

  1. Symbol delete vote Delete. Crufty and poorly-written. Maybe it's a part of our history, but it's a part of our history that's best left forgotten. The FA version is much funnier and to-the-point.--HolUp (talk) 05:40, December 4, 2016 (UTC)
  2. Symbol delete vote Delete. Anyone who wades through that list of also-known-as will be disappointed, as the rest of the article is also aimless babble. Spıke Radiomicrophone11:41 4-Dec-16

  1. Bi-curious George would make a decent substitute for this article, at least that one has a focused comedy strategy. I'll tweak it a bit, then I'll move it to Curious George once this awful version is deleted.--HolUp (talk) 06:50, December 8, 2016 (UTC)
