Talk:Canadians: A Retrospective
This used to be there. Sorry about that lengthy explanation. I can be verbose sometimes. 21:23, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
This page was originally planned as a rewrite of Canadians, but when it was done I thought it was off-topic enough that it ended up as Canada/Origin. Later I decided that my initial instinct was correct, so it's here now (the original Canadians text was VFD'd, as it was abysmal). Modusoperandi 05:22, 15 August 2006 (UTC)
From Pee Review
Every year, around Canada Day (Fête du Canada too. Both conveniently fall on July 1th, which is nice), I get all nationalistic and nom a Canadaish page on VFH. Last year, Canada, which I nom'd on July 3nd, because I'm both forgetful and my memory doesn't work so good. This year, Canadians, unless I forget again. Yes, it's mine, but it turned out nice, and I walk it and comb its fur every day. I do! Well, enough rambling. It's got history, less the names and places and dates. Hopefully it's Canadian without being too Canadian. Hoser for hosers of all nations, in other words. Opinions? -- 10:08, 6 April 2007 (UTC)
|Final Score:||32.8||It's quite a nice article, slightly informative but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I'm amazed you haven't mentioned ice hockey, as that's the first thing most people think of when someone mentions Canadians.|

Sorry I couldn't think of more useful comments, but would you like a user template?
- Slightly informative is what I was aiming for. Too informative would potentially fill it with dates and names (my favourite "bit" is still reducing the Plains of Abraham, a major turning point in Canadian history, to a single line). I didn't mention hockey because I, um, don't like hockey. /me hides under desk. And thanks for the template; I won't use it, as I try not to define myself by what I'm not, but thanks anyway (and I already have the Canadian template hidden away somewhere under my userpage). -- 16:12, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
This is funny. Damn, it looks like I didn't vote in time on VFH. A score of 6 for humor? I'd say more like 9. --So So 01:13, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
- I guess it needed more nudity and cursing. Oh, well.

- Nudity and cursing! Then I'd give it a 10. --So So 05:36, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
Hi, I posted a video I started on the page. For now it's 2 minutes long, and I'm looking for more people to contribute. You are all
