OK, so I was just having a little chat with a friend of mine. He has been reading this here Uncyclopedia thing, and like many of us has noticed that we have rather a lot of references to certain individuals which perhaps appear a little too frequently.

OK, he's talking about Chuck Norris here.

Using a bot it would be possible to relatively quickly swap a load of references to Chuck for some different names. I would be watching each edit to check for obvious places where it should actually be Chuck's name, and will leave those. But many are random as hell and could be anyone's name. It's those I intend to change. Also, obviously if anyone cares about a particular page they can always revert the bots edit if they want to.

So why am I telling everyone this? Just to see if anyone has objections to me doing this. If you don't I'm asking for suggestions for names to replace. I just swapped 20 or so to Noel Coward, but maybe it might be best to spread the love around a bit... It's easy to change the name I am swapping as I go, so I need suggestions. The names below were suggestions made on IRC... OK, I made the Leonard Cohen one. MrN Icons-flag-gb.png

Who to replace Chuck with suggestions

from 2009

Nice. Humphrey Bogart is getting all the love at the moment, but I'm spreading it around. Maybe Sherlock Holmes next... MrN Icons-flag-gb.png 03:56, Aug 17

from 2008

from 2007

The following were also featured in '07, however, I believe they using them would defeat your purpose.

and Finally, 2006 (the 2005 features tend to be weak at best, and VFD by current standards in some instances)

Instead of replacing Chuck with something else that will age poorly, why not just remove him from pages where dropping his name doesn't follow the narrative thread...and replace him with nothing? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:01, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Agreed. Removing a whole chunk of Chuck? I was going for something like that. With one of these bottymebob things you can edit or just leave the auto-replaced bit as is. It's a lot quicker to do find and replace, but if there are easy places to remove a whole chunk of Chuck without chucking up over the article it can be easily chucked.

Didn't we already do this like 2 years ago? Somebody google the village dump and find out. Spang talk 23:19, 16 Aug 2009
I googled it. I googled it, hard. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:27, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
Here's what I see as the problem: pages where there are a few references and he is referred to as either "chuck" or "norris," which will cause continuity problems. Plus, having Noel Coward roundhouse kicking people makes even less sense (though is definitely less cliched) than having chuck do it. What I would do is type "chuck norris" into the search box, and start de-chucking. Not as easy, but not as much risk of something getting messed up. - T.L.B.

So, let me get this straight. You want to do something the hard way, in a manner that won't mess things up? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:05, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Yea. Like I said, I'm checking each edit manually. So far from 216 pages looked at it's 136 pages de-chucked, and 80 left alone for one reason or another. DEATH TO CHUCK!!! MrN Icons-flag-gb.png 02:07, Aug 17
Solution: replace "roundhouse kick" with "begin a civil rights revolution." To cover all the bases, replace the past-tense "roundhouse kicked" with "flummoxed by a vast amount of literary criticism" and "roundhouse kicks" with "bombs Baghdad Outkast-style." --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly.jpg 04:17, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

On a more serious note, it appears that Sergei Rachmaninoff, with 6,427 links is actually linked more than Mr. Norris, with a mere 4,037 links. Rachmaninoff is the 2nd most linked to biography in mainspace, behind only Oscar Wilde. (If your wondering, its caused the sig of a certain murderous amphibian). --Mn-z

why are you guys talking about some homophobic republican. doesnt sound very important to me. —RomanDogBird (TalkMorgan Freemaneat my shorts niggaHawkmansuck my balls) 04:16, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

We are all part of the homosexual agenda --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly.jpg 04:20, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
He's not homophobic. On his off hours, he's really, really gay. Look at that moustache. In other words, when he's off the clock, he loves the cock. That's also the bumpersticker on his truck. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:22, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
On a related note, we are removing the Wildecruft at VFD. Since Wilde was a flaming homosexual, it balances out politically. --Mn-z 04:29, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
