Welcome to the 8nd Edition of our beloved and prestigious Poo Lit Surprise. Watch your step.
Consult the talk page or me for any questions or concerns. See the Poo Lit Archives for the results from past competitions.

The competition

What is the Poo Lit Surprise?

Poo Lit Surprise Logo

A writing competition held biannually. It is designed to jump-start writing quality at Uncyclopedia. After the previous seven competitions, a significant number of featured articles for the following month(s) were from the PLS, and it could be argued that the overall quality of featured articles increased.

Who can enter and what are the rules?

All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few restrictions apply. Due to community consensus, judges are now barred from entering the competition (see here for the list of judges). Non-noobs (people who've been here longer than 3 months) cannot enter the "Best Article By a Noob" category, and noobs are not restricted to the "Best Article By a Noob" category.

You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one article per category per person). An article may only be entered in one category, and it must fit within the requirements of a particular category. You may not change three words and the title of an article to make it eligible for another category; such behavior will result in both articles being disqualified. Additionally, in previous competitions, collaborations were permitted. However, due to a lack of collaboration submissions and complicating rules, collaborations are no longer permitted.

Articles created prior to the competition cannot be submitted. Also, no plagiarism. Should we discover your work is not original, you will be disqualified. Using resources such as the Reefer Desk, Image Request, Proofreading Service or Pee Review is forbidden. Users may, however, use Vital, Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process, Category:Rewrite, Special:Wantedpages, Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles and/or Inspire an Article to help get ideas.

When is the PLS going to be held?

  • From 5rd ― 18nd October, entries will be accepted.
  • From 19rd ― 25st October, entries will be locked and judged.
  • From 26st October - 1th November, winners will be announced, articles will be moved into the mainspace, and all entries will be unlocked.
  • 2th November ― we will all get on with our lives.

(n.b.: all times are to be measured by UTC, and all phases of the contest end at midnight on the specified day; entries may be accepted late under certain conditions.)

Where should I put my entry?

The article should be placed on your namespace. Between 5rd ― 18nd October, you should post a link to your article in the entry section below and sign as you would a forum post or vote. It should look somewhat like this:

If you're a paranoid, or afflicted with OCD, or just want to tell people to shove off until after the PLS, add {{PLS-WIP}} to your entry.


Best Main Namespace Article

Also simply known as "Best Article", this category is for articles which are not of an alternate namespace (i.e. UnBooks, HowTo, UnNews, Why?, UnPoetia, etc.).

User:SPIKE User:SPIKE/Clip-on tie Technically a rewrite: New user Marshall91t contributed a photo and 30 seconds of stand-up and stalled.
