By the early 2000s, a GIF animation depicting the opening text was widespread on the Something Awful message forums and other internet forums. The phrase found popular reference outside internet forums through the 2000s and 2010s, including use by Newgrounds in 2001.
How about if we slightly expand this one to say "any article about a website or a website's user..." (or some better word for user)? It seems to me I've seen a lot of obvious vanity pages about message board/forum users. As these tend not to be real biographies, but about their persona, perhaps this could clear up any confusion that might result from trying to apply the first criterion. --Dmcdevit 22:31, 24 Jun 2005 (UTC)
There is a slight error in the proposal page (and it's my fault): at present pages stay on WP:PNT for a maximum of fourteen days, but may be moved to VfD at any time (seven days is a rule of thumb for getting consensus that they are not worth translating). They may also be marked for speedy deletion at any time, and often are. Pages that have gone to VfD after seven days include marginal interest or duplicate articles in languages where we have difficulty finding translators (eg, an article on Sharia in Indonesian). The problem with the current system is that we often feel the need to translate articles just so they can go to speedy or to VfD. As a very rough estimate, a quarter of articles that come to PnT are copyvio, a quarter get speedied under current CSD, a third get translated within fourteen days (only one article in the last two months has needed an extension) and the rest go to VfD on the grounds that we can't do anything with them. The fourteen day deadline is useful for concentrating peoples attention, so that articles do not simply lie around on English wiki for want of translating: the place for that is Wikipedia:Requests for translation, once the article has been moved to a foreign wiki, but most of the articles we move we translate for English wiki as well...
