Upsilon Sigma Sigma, also known as ΥΣΣ, is a fraternal organization that was recently founded that adheres to the pillars of Humor, Honor, and Hubris. The Brotherhood is tasked with three things, writing requested articles (individually), a collaboration on a semi-monthly basis to write one of the top 50 requested articles, and a focus on providing only in-depth reviews for the Pee Review. Membership in PEEING is also encouraged.

So this is an idea for a collaboration and improvement group I've had for a few weeks since I've seen many requested articles have not been written and the list generally hasn't changed. If you're interested in possibly joining up, pay the page a visit. --Sir Skinfan13 Talk {< CUN RotM FBotM VFH ΥΣΣ Maj. SK >} 07:44 EST 9 Mar, 2010

So what you are saying is that this is just like Uncyclopedia is now, except that you are the boss right? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 15:04, Mar 9
Ouch. well, My focus for this was more on the collaboration for writing a top 50 requested article each month... I'm not really interested in being anyone's boss. I just thought it would be nice to have a group dedicated to providing some of the top requested articles. So sorry to rock the boat there --Sir Skinfan13 Talk {< CUN RotM FBotM VFH ΥΣΣ Maj.

Well, we do have UN:IC already for that. Why not help out there rather than start something which will rival it? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:09, Mar 9
I think the main problem is that you are in the way of MrN's power trip. THE POWER HAS GONE INTO HIS HEAD! ~Jewriken.GIF 16:00, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
So, in other words, rather than being overtly in charge of anything what you're proposing is a network of secretive, shadowy figures behind the scenes who quietly and unobtrusively control eveything and, ultimately, have only their own interests at heart. Hmm. Where've I heard that before? :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 16:03, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
I'm just trying to qualify for category:Honorary Jews. How many more people do I need to secretly assassinate before you buggers finally let me in? Am I killing the wrong people? Oh. Right... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:09, Mar 9
You know that all you have to is show up at the synagogue with a load of Chinese food (might want to leave out the deep fried pork balls, obviously) and it's no-questions-asked approval and admittance, right? Oh yes, and there's that bit where we chop the end of your penis off, but don't worry about that. Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 16:12, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, it will all be over before you can say OHMYFUCKINGGODWHATHAVEYOUDONETOME?! ~Jewriken.GIF 16:14, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
Now I understand why you guys are so adverse to eating fried pork balls... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:17, Mar 9
Plus you never can tell with the Chinese. When they say "deep fried pork balls" they might easily mean "deep fried pig's balls," and I don't know about you but my desire not to ever have pig's bollocks in my mouth runs far deeper than any ethnoreligious conditioning. Apart from, erm, that Dutch "special interest" film I was in once - but I was being paid, so it was ok. Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 16:21, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
I didn't have to do anything like that to get in category:Honorary Jews. Perhaps you should try doing what I did? I'm sure it was fantastic. I'm like that. Also, further comment about me. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:54, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

@MrN9000: Well, as I understood it IC was for re-writting shitty articles. I was hoping to focus more on making one of the top 50 requested articles from Special:WantedPages each month. That list has literally been the same for about a year. If that isn't worth having a group dedicated to, then I'll go ahead and delete everything I've made so far (about 10 hours of work now...) --Sir Skinfan13 Talk {< CUN RotM FBotM VFH ΥΣΣ Maj. SK >} 11:44 EST 9 Mar, 2010

Well, IC could choose to write anything they wanted, and I'm sure that if someone nominated a requested article it might get chosen. There is also already Uncyclopedia:Requested_Articles which MadMax runs. Dude, I'm not saying don't do this. I'm saying I think it's likely that this group might struggle in the long run. We have had many similar things before, and IC itself struggles from time to time, so I fear this project may run aground rather soon. I may be wrong... If you can make it work then go ahead. What you do in your own userspace is totally up to you. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 16:54, Mar 9
We also have Der Unwehr which is sort of like IC, except everyone works individually. --Mn-z 03:06, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Header

I, for one, support Skinfan. It's not about "being anyone's boss" or anything like that, he's just trying to improve the wiki, same as me when I started DU, same as the the three or four people who have run IC over the last year or so. There's obviously some amount of overlap between IC and DU, but the focus here is writing requested articles. And, to Skinfan's credit, the list has been unchanged in virtually forever, so why not organize an attempt to try and change that? I mean, no one went "oh man, another writing competition" when Max proposed TAW a while back, and this really isn't all that different in terms of motive. So, um, yeah. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 20:08, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Update

Ok, so the group is up and running and we're working on our collaboration for this month, but we only have 5 members so far. We could really use some extra creative input for our group, so here is everyone's second invitation to drop by and check us out! --Sir Skinfan13 Talk {< CUN RotM FBotM VFH ΥΣΣ Maj. SK >} 01:11 EST 20 Mar, 2010

OK, ok, I'll sign up, already; did.  Avast Matey!!! Happytimes are here!* Happytimes.gif (talk) (stalk) Π   ~ Xkey280 ~  25 Mar 2010 ~ 01:17 (UTC)
