Work of art?

Protected "Teridax": Counter-productive edit warring: Protecting this work of art for the good of all mankind C'mon, this looks like it has been pasted from Encyclopedia Dramatica. I clearly doesn't fit the encyclopedic tone policy, it has got zero informative value and none of the claims are sourced. I'm flustered that it was one of the admins protected it. Does this mean that this kind of *lulz* articles is what this wiki is really about? Even if by some alien to me standard the article classifies as a work of art, I really don't think it classifies as a proper article for this wiki.

It's the only remotely silly article we have, I don't think its hurting anything. Someone made an article about Teridax and rather than deleting it immediately I just wrote a bunch of nonsense and people liked it so it stayed. It's Drybones approved you know! However if it would make you feel better I can remove the only link that points here, since beyond this joke, Teridax doesn't really merit an article. Psycho Robot (talk) 17:20, 15 May 2015 (EDT)
I appreciate the proposition, but my understanding(correct me if I'm wrong) is that this wiki was meant for serious articles that provide accurate information. I have nothing personally against silly stuff, but leaving a silly article like that in midst of other articles, even if it will only be possible to find it my directly searching for 'Teridax' might create a wrong impression about what kind of articles are there on this wiki and even encourage a drop in quality in other articles.
I'm fine with keeping it in *some* form on this wiki, but then measures should be taken to prevent people from confusing it with a serious article. Maybe save it in wiki's media library or mark it as a silly article that shouldn't be taken seriously. What's even more important, if a serious article on the same topic is ever created, it should be made sure of that it will be the first one users get when searching for the topic and get the silly one only when they explicitly state that they want to see the silly stuff.--HumorlessVandal (talk) 04:01, 16 May 2015 (EDT)
