What Uncyclopedia is not

Nonsense is funny, but only sometimes. Drawing from random sources for your articles can be a good way to draw links to other pages, garnering attention to yours. However, these links should make sense. Stating the exact opposite of truth or pure nonsense is usually not humorous. Creatively blurring the line between fact and fiction, creating a witty or unique "saga" or adding creatively to an existing storyline are good ways to expand the Uncyclopedia. Using overdone devices, including crass tastelessness, clichés, or gibberish (unless applicable) gives the admins work to do, and will likely result in a block.
