Iv become bored lately of people leaving us because the community isn't the same and they don't like it. I suggest a major new tactic. Lock ALL articles in their current form, no matter what state they are in, and i mean everything, main pages, games, featured articles, everything, moved to an archived name space, and start a fresh, new systems, scratch anything and everything, begin all over.--Silent Penguin 22:24, 15 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

I don't think i could adjust... Readmesoon (Talk | contribs) (23:19, 15 Octodest 2008 (UTC))
I'm all for this idea, the place has gotten stale and boring recently, we've been swimming in a sea of shite on this site, serious changes are needed and I reckon this is the best way forward. It'd be like restarting it, but with the knowledge of what went wrong last time. Seppy for president. --Testostereich(ballsack) 07:17, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I've been here me thinks half a year. That was a short time but i adjusted. It'll take me half a year again. And i have to make a new userpage. Oh, the humanity. --Penguin-chick evil.jpg Dxpenguinman, the Penguinman ...He's e-vile! Talk Got An Idea? GAMESHOW! 08:40, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Hmm I've deliberated over it and - although I'm not sure of the idea - I'm willing to support it, 51% of me would not feel guilty :P ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 09:07, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I feel like some kind of holocaust is imminent here... :P ColourfulMetalFlower.jpgMMF!talk←/→admin(:D) 12:13, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Hey, C'mon guys! C'mon! Cheer up. Really now, guys, I'm serious, C'mon! Come on guys! cheer up, seriously! I really mean it. C'mon! Maybe I'm not being clear enough... Well, the point I would like to make is: C'mon guys! Seriously.--Fishalishalish 20:18, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I'm all for it! I've been here for a month (maybe a month and a half) and this is already getting boring!Green duck.jpg Ifs you musts, me page----Chit at will, chat--well lets just say you'll be spanked----Me pasts frenzies by me----01:18, 21 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

This is a joke, right?[edit source]

If not, I'm leaving.

I've got better things to do with my time, like, cook meatballs. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:36, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

Heh, I've posted a 'serious' response to this topic on the Illogiblog here. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 13:20, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

No. I will not stand around while you guys take away all the articles that make this wiki what it is. No. I do not support, or even understand, why you would start all over again. More to come, -- Ragglefraggleking Is Eating Your Bagels 23:33, 16 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Me. I am not sure. I kinda agree. I am really bored but dont want to start all over. I DONT I repeat DONT want to get rid of my talk page.--Romanducky.jpg|Fonchezzz| Quacking|Smile no.jpg 01:06, 17 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I can't believe for one minute that you lot are actually considering this. Wait, wasn't this posted as a joke? I'm pretty sure it's a joke to wind us all up, right Seppy? Seriously, if it ain't, then, well, I've already made my point. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:11, 17 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

No way. Some WHAT!? (talk) (contribs) (edit count) 19:49, 17 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

Well, at first, it was just a wind up, but then i got thinking, you people who are being defencive dont seem to understand my point, im not saying we delete everything, i am saying we preserve everything as it is, a memorial to a golden age, and start another site, learning from the mistakes of the past. god, i wouldnt delete everything, there is too much good stuff. im just suggesting we start with a clean slate within the same wiki. This isnt a deletionist uncyc idea, no article improvement. We start over, with the old stuff sitting in an archive, free to be viewed, linked to, and such, also, i wasnt thinking about moving the forum and userpages, just everything considered true content. a fresh slate, let people write about the same things in a different way. but hey, if nobody likes it. Then screw it :P </ramble trying to clear things up and highlight he is not in favour of deleting articles> --Silent Penguin 22:04, 17 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Heheh, thanks for that, Seppy. This seems like a strange idea and I think it's still a bit too radical.
BUT, this is my interpretation of how we could pull it off if we were to do this - it MIGHT be something we could consider if we went independent. Create the Illogicopedia framework on an independent server. The best of the best could then be hand picked (by a select team of admins) and uploaded it to the new site - say about 1,000 articles - features, peoples' favourites etc. Then, over the course of the next however long, slowly start to merge old stuff with the new. Like, find stuff from the Wikia site and merge it into some quality articles on the new one.
Now I see there's no deletion involved, it isn't that bad an idea if done in the above way. Still a bit left field for now though? Maybe. Oh, and I just noticed RFK's comment there, very similar to mine... -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 16:27, 18 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

erm[edit source]

this is just a thought but, we could take all of the old articles, create a new wiki, and put all the old articles in the new wiki. Then we could take the current wiki and remake it in our own image. messed up thoughts--Ragglefraggleking 15:23, 18 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

kinda heavy-handed, eh?[edit source]

A similar idea was proposed on uncyclopedia when I was more active there. They wanted to abandon the old site and start a new comedy site with the exact same rules and the exact same goal. I'll say the same thing here as I did there: the answer is not to lock and "throw away" everything we've worked for here. That's excessive and fairly ridiculous. We can work to improve poopy articles without deleting anything or locking the old site and starting a "new" one. Remakes are never as good as originals. Let illogicopedia be. The last solutuon to any of our "problems" is completely starting over. It's like abandoning a house and building a new one because you don't like the color of the carpet. --THE 15:54, 18 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

Exactly. It'd be like two years of hard work down the pan. -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 10:47, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I agree. Edit articles to the point of improvement so that everything well...doesn't go down the pan. And i don't want to destroy my user page. I worked so hard. sob sob --Penguin-chick evil.jpg Dxpenguinman, the Penguinman ...He's e-vile! Talk Got An Idea? GAMESHOW! 12:28, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
I wasnt suggesting we use the same exact model, thats pointless, i was saying we learn from our mistakes rather than trying to tinker with something that could already be broken. like a code rewrite rather than maintenance.--Silent Penguin 12:30, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Well, whatever. I'm against the idea of locking everything anyway. Why don't we just have a good old-fashioned overhaul eh? -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 12:56, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
Bleee? New Illogicopedia? I find theres nothing wrong with this one. And I've only been here a month so do not please remove everything because I am proud of my babies! Oh, youre not going to, just locking it. Well if we moved, think itd be quite an effort DG |Chatty Chaps| 13:52, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

This is probably the stupidest idea I've ever heard[edit source]

How brown is the acid you're dropping, Penguin. Because it must be pretty friggin' strong. --~~~~ 17:36, 19 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

:D -- Hindleyak  Converse?blogClick here! 11:47, 21 Octodest 2008 (UTC)

Shit, man[edit source]

You must be kidding me. You must be.

Locking down the site and starting anew is, in my opinion, a great way to lose members, lose great articles, lose greatNESS altogether etc.

To make a long story short - fuck that. --Ryan u|t|c Hola 07:04, 22 Octodest 2008 (UTC)
