Where the hell is that list of reskins?

Colbert Reskinning

All the info on this serious issue is at this link.

IDEA ALERT: We should have an anti-Colbert reskinning, "attacking" him and such. That would put the issue right at the forefront. We get a lot of lurkers who just come to read and link stuff to their blogs, and they might not see the village dump.

It's slowly coming to me and I'd prefer not to post at the dump, I think the logo could be changed to a picture of Colbert with one of those circles with a line through it over it. And then the rest is all red white and blue, and the top saying welcome to uncyclopedia the encyclopedia that stephen colbert stole from. And then idk probably some more references throughout the page, but that's all ive got now.

All your Uncycloverse are belong to jew.

Algorithm, explain yourself

Ahem. Please see Talk:Euroipods. It just looks like you're trying to piss off 50% of us, and/or rub our face in the fact that the article wasn't speedy deleted, consensus was violated, etc, etc. While I like the 1-in-a-hundred rotating feature, I hardly think Euroipods is suitable for it, even ignoring the fact that I despise it. It's too much of an Uncyc injoke, and 1 out of every 100 newcomers to uncyc will probably look at it, scoff at the typos and suckiness, and probably mistake us for a bunch of talentless hacks and head to another site. If anything, it ought to be the. Not only was that democratically voted on with consensus, but the joke makes sense to anyone even if they've never been to Uncyc before.

What the fuck is wrong with the featured article today? It just says "the" and there's nothing to click on. Is this a really lame joke, or the work of vandals? -- 01:03, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

No, I mean the guy who nominated it and the people who voted for it were only joking. They probably didn't actually want it to be featured. They just thought it was so stupid that it would be funny to vote for it.

Is there anywhere to vote on what the next reskinning should be?

If not, there should be. I suggest a Zork-themed page. --[[User:Nintendorulez|Nintendorulez | talk]] 12:42, 8 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Hmm ... I'd suggest Talk:Main Page ... oh wait you're already here. Seconds the Zork nomination. --Nerd42 19:38, 8 Dec 2005 (UTC)
It's surposed to be a surpise god-damit, it wouldn't be on if we voted on it! OK step by step guide.
  1. Find an appropriate or unused langugae code (maybe Zo: or If:), create the page.
  2. Delete this section it's surpose to be a Surprise!
  3. Copy the source of the Main Page to this new code and work away on it, creating copies of any templates if used on the main page if you need too.
  4. Find an appropriate anniversay (when was zork released, started, brithday of the writters, etc.)
  5. (optional) create an appropriate logo
  6. Contact an admin and ask thme to make the change for the anniversay, I would but I'm on holiday until the new year from tomoz I suggest User:Rcmurphy or User:Splaka, as they have been involved in most of the recent reskinnings.
BTW I like the Zork idea just annoying that I'll probably miss it grrr, note that I wouldn't be surprised to see christmas, Hanaka (sp?), Eid, or Beltane reskinnings soon so it maybe worth waiting to do this, I waited 3 months from the initial work on the Memory Alpha spoof to release it to the world!--The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur.

Wait a second, a suprise to whom? Certainly not to the one whose doing them, and obviously not to the admins: since the Main Page is protected, either

  • only admins can come up with new skins


  • the suprise is ruined for whichever admin an individual asks to help pull it off. --Nerd42 22:15, 8 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Well DUH! a surprise to everyone else! also anyone cane come up with a new skin, all you need an admin for is to change the logo and switch the Main page to the reskinned version!--The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM F@H (Petition) 22:34, 8 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Featured image

Do not include the hitler image too often - it will annoy people. Uncyclopedia is already blocked on some library websites on grounds of being humorous (though the system in use is very peculiar - a site connected with the British and Foreign Bible Society is blocked on grounds of being an occult site!) - don't want other reasons.

Well, the Featured images are on a random rotation, with the most recent one given the most time. And, we're not going to restrict content because some places block it. That would be silly, and against the idea of this website. Besides, what's wrong with a picture of Hitler? --PantsMacKenzie 13:28, 5 Jan 2006 (UTC)
It seems that Librarians are secretly Hitler lovers and cannot stand to see their hero made fun of in that way. I think the "I can't believe its not Hitler" and the "Chocolate Hitler" offends them. They put Uncyclopedia on their banned list. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 12:04, 16 Jan 2006 (UTC)

*Some* people cause a fuss even when only minor offence is intended (g). Don't want the thought police to come and cause problems. I was complaining about the badly set blocking policy of the library system in question (what they would make of Scunthorpe and Penistone (Birminghan) is best left to the imagination - anyone wanting to develop the idea can) - but which allows people to call up slash fiction and other such weird and wonderful stuff.

Oh god, you guys should see the library at my school. Nazi Central. Any website you can name is blocked. It's even hard to do actual research. -- 22:35, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Why doesn't Uncyclopedia serve pages gziped, like Wikipedia and most sensible text-heavy sites? You could save 75% bandwidth on the HTML and be easier on slow connections on the same time. Unless your problem is CPU and not bandwidth, but oh well...
