Forum:The biiiig Wackypedia clearout

From Illogicopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Nah, I'm not talking about taking a hammer to that other site, but from surfing random pages there is quite a bit of, erm, what I would call 'Wackypedia fodder', namely total carp we kept in the hopes of improving but never got round to it. Now, I'm not saying we ought to delete everything in the trash bin - in fact we should all be doing our best to keep that stuff on the wiki.

However, we now have the luxury of a 'backup wiki', old stuff that was acceptable back in the Wikia days but doesn't really cut it now. If I get round to it, I'm going to try and garner opinion on said articles on their equivalent talk pages. If enough people think it sucks enough to delete, then so be it. If so - the original author will not mind because a) they have long gone and b) it's over at Wackypedia anyway. Think of this as our chance to shake off the old Wackypedia image.

Some articles I can think of right now are the IRC chat logs, especially the longer ones. The more I think about it, the more I think they aren't really suitable for Illogicopedia. Some are good, but some are utter bollocks, to be honest.

As I said, I'll probably list them here or something rather than just deleting them outright. Booya. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:08, 20 Octodest 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of deleting things, the trashbin and several VFD's need to be cleared out. --(ƒî)» 14:27, 20 Octodest 2009 (UTC)
Wow, that filled up quick. I'll get on it. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:00, 20 Octodest 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I've cleared out what I could for now. If anybody has any problems with any of my deletions, please let me know on my talk page. Cheers. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 21:22, 20 Octodest 2009 (UTC)

Care to elaborate? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:12, 22 Octodest 2009 (UTC)
The two are unrelated. --Syndrome 20:29, 23 Octodest 2009 (UTC)
Good. I think. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:34, 23 Octodest 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Update, for anyone who's mildly interested

Nose collection has been revived with Nose Collection II: The Spamming, and is now a BJAODN-style affair. Some more trash has also been deleted, but most of it has been moved to the aforementioned page. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 20:08, 22 Octodest 2009 (UTC)

[edit] I'm mildly interested

I'm feeling some massive clear out when/if activity picks up again, or if we hit an article milestone and need to bail out the floodwater of carp articles that hath accumulated in illogic's hull Testostereich(ballsack) 18:20, 4 Jeremy 2010 (UTC)
