Jump to: navigation, search
To limit the size of this list and highlight articles that need review, deleted articles and commentary have been moved here.

The following pages in funspace have been proposed for deletion en masse as part of a general cruft-cleaning measure. Any individual page deletion may be discussed here.

If a "keep" consensus has emerged, please add a collapsebox to reduce the length of this page.

Fun:Aardvark[edit]

Fun:Balls[edit]

Keep - it has potential. it's at least got a built in sex joke.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 14:18, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

Do we have something on Blue Balls or is it just a throwaway joke in the article on abstinence balls? ADK...I'll dance your pizza! 14:30, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
If the throw away joke has already been thrown elsewere, then i revert my comment and say "delete".Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 15:49, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

I'm going to make an argument here that this is the very kind of thing that SHOULD be in fun space. something someone thought was fun, even part of mainspace at a time, and found value in. Fun really is a catch all, and sometimes we all don't agree what is fun, but this is one of the prime examples of what i don't think the community should be dumping.

Keep[edit]

  • Keep and expand: ROT13 was an early way to hide NSFW material, e.g. in usenet newsgroups displayed on an 80 column by 24 line text-only screen.

Sterile, i realize it seems "extreme" till you read the articles. I would not have started deleting yet, either, but it's not like anything being deleted has been done any differently from how every other edit at this place is made. It's not worth making an issue of, when today I deleted 3 articles (not in fun space) in the normal manner of being an editor, just cause they were worthless articles. Nothing new, bad, or precident setting is happening. someone just put a list together instead of doing it one at a time. --Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 02:28, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
