uncyclopedia[edit]

This is the second request, my last request was rejected back in March 2008 as uncy was not on the Wikia domain name, now it is. It is particulary open to abuse and being spammed as interwiki links cannot be searched. For example I just removed it from Office Assistant which was added on 5 May 2007 and was not found for 1 year and 8 months! I don't know if this is the only one either! For the long list of reasons why it doens't comply with Wikipedia's links policy, see my essay on the matter.

I know it can also be linked through via the Wikia domain, if there is any way to prevent this please do so.--Otterathome 14:39, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

After reading the essay linked above I support this request and I don't see why uncyclopedia was made an interwiki prefix in the first place, surely not for use in Wikipedia articles? -AlexSm 17:51, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
I support removal. --A. B. (talk) 19:33, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
As do I. I can't think why (apart from on its own article) uncyclopedia would ever need linking to. Majorly talk 21:19, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
Speedy remove per the perception of self-dealing of a sitting WMF Board member, and the head of the Advisory Board. -- Thekohser 02:05, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Remove We don't need to link to this nonsense from encyclopedias. Triplestop 18:42, 25 July 2009 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Done - Removed, but the database isn't update for almost a year, so it can take a while before its gone. Huib talk 15:25, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
