del log

The goal here is to improve the quality of Uncyclopedia, not to win a vote. You can edit an article during a vote to delete it. You can flip your vote if the article 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 why we voted to keep it, the last time.
  • Add {{VFD}} to the article in question, or else the moderator may invalidate the vote. If adding {{VFD}} to an article already under vote, reset the 24-hour clock.
  • 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.

  • Symbol delete vote.svg Delete. What is this? other than a subplot of the recently-mainspaced Machu Picchu? Says it is a lie, and the main comedy strategy is "This doesn't really exist!" Spıke 🎙️14:19 13-Jun-21

  1. Symbol keep vote.svg Keep. The article's intended audience is videogamers, and it's well done — provided the reader is familiar with the game in question. It's categorized incorrectly and doesn't explain what it's really getting at though. Dark Web, White Hat (talk) 23:55, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
    Very well. I'd like it if articles were self-evident, but at least this is deliberate humor. How do you know so much, about so much? Spıke 🎙️03:27 14-Jun-21
    It's what I do: I drink and I know things. Seriously though, didn't mean to sound elitist; I have friends who play videogames and talk about them all the time. I've absorbed some pop culture and gamer culture from them, played some games myself; and the rest I've picked up reading and studying a variety of topics for leisure. I'm an intellectual. In school the teachers either loved me or hated me, because my hand would go up a lot. Dark Web, White Hat (talk) 04:34, 14 June 2021 (UTC)
  • It's not spam or anything to do with Machu Picchu, but videogame humor: a creative portrayal of the game Portal, foreshadowing the events of the game through the in-universe perspective of (an advertisement from) Aperture Science Laboratories. The references to "cake" and "psychopathic AI" are jokes, and "this article is a lie" is itself a joke, because Portal's best-known utterance is "The cake is a lie". There are plenty of smaller references, like "we will be GLaD to", which is an allusion to GLaDOS. Dark Web, White Hat (talk) 23:55, 13 June 2021 (UTC)
