Not Internet Relevant
Several things can get your entry flushed from a Wiki.
On Uncyclopedia, it's use of the word "cunt".
On Wikipedia, it's the mention of Encyclopedia Dramatica.
On Encyclopedia Dramatica, the chief criterion for flushing involves articles that are "not internet relevant"
or which use strikeouts.

How to convert an article from "not internet relevant" to "internet relevant"
Wikipedia (wiːkiˈpiːdiə) is a multilingual, World Wide Web-based, encyclopedia project operated by the Wikimedia Foundation. Many language versions of Wikipedia are free content, while others, such as the English version, include non-free material. It is the largest, most extensive and fastest growing encyclopedia currently available on the Internet.
Wikipedia is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) in which participants play editors of a hypothetical online encyclopedia, where they try to insert misinformation that they are randomly assigned when they create their accounts, while preventing contrary information from being entered by others. Players with similar misinformation to promote will generally form "guilds" in order to aid each other.
ED is for purists
Take care only to post "in-joke" humour (Spanglish: "humor") only appreciated by basement dwellers who spend 25 hours a day on t'Interweb and who have been nerds since at least 100 years ago. Unless you've found some rule 34 porn. Then post it anyway, "internet relevant" or not. Otherwise ED might run out of topics.

About people who post the "I need moar internets" cat picture
"The Internet is full of young, hyperactive, undereducated and unskilled typists who, while already are incapable of correctly spelling half the words in the English language, manage to brutally mangle up the other half for not knowing how to navigate a keyboard. Thus, misspelling in of itself is a popular meme, and certain misspellings become so essential in forum posts that using the correct spelling will actually get you laughed at. One such word is the misspelling of the word ‘more’, “moar”. Moar has gained its popularity in many forums when one user posts something interesting or desirable to look at (usually links to porn, unsurprisingly) and everyone who responds after demands ‘moar!’"

For a discussion of which of the two Wikis is more unfunny and about the phenomenon of elitists squabbling about shit nobody cares about see Wikipedia's article about "The Judean People's Front", "The People's Front of Judea" and "The Popular Front of Judea" in their unfunny article on Life of Brian.

How to distinguish between a "troll" and an "attention whore"
In order to produce clucks for inclusioness in ED it is necessary to go to other websites and troll them.
However this requires that you act like an attention whore.
Being a troll is good.
Being an attention whore is bad.
Does not compute!!!111
However, it's all in the context.
Consider the following posting (note ALL_CAPS);
If you posted this at Wikipedia or Uncyclopedia this would make you a potential troll.
If you posted this at Encyclopedia Dramatica this would make you an attention whore.
And remember - Arbeit macht Jew.
