The WikiFun Police[edit]
The Grand Smiley is watching you...

The WikiFun Police, often abbreviated WFP, is a group devoted to helping cleanup, reorganize, and rehumorize projects and pages under the Department of Fun, including any with the {{humour}} or {{Humorantipolicy}} tags. Scope can also include other fun articles that, although within other projects, may need attention, such as The Game (mind game) and Chuck Norris facts. For a complete list of WikiFun Police articles, see Category:WikiFun Police articles.

The WFP is not the same as the Department of Fun, but supports them and upholds their goals, similar to what a WikiProject does for its specific topic. All of the actions and morals of the WikiFun Police are governed by their humble overseer and idol, The Grand Smiley.

If you have a request for something the WikiFun Police could do, please post it at the requests page. All articles that are already within the project are have the {{WikiProject Fun}} tag on them.

History[edit]
In August 2010, the WikiFun Police ascended from the mixed ashes of the Wikipedia Fun Police (a group "dedicated to eliminating all traces of fun and enjoyment from Wikipedia") and the Anti-Fun Police (a group "dedicated to proving...that fun is one of the main essences of Wikipedia"). Now, with a completely different set of beliefs, the WikiFun police will achieve their eternal goal: to dominate infuse Wikipedia with fun.
