As none of you are quite aware, I have recently been inquiring about some sort of 'janitorial' or 'clean-up' work for me to start doing. (in IRC only, until now).

Basically, what I have decided is that I shall (probably) not be creating any articles (and certainly not to the extent of Cajek). I will continue to do Peeing and Proofing, BUT I wish to take on more 'behind the scenes' work...you know, the shit-work. I am in the middle of a move, (febuary) so for the month of January, i will be very doggedly hunting down different laws/rules/guidelines for such things as qvfd, huffing newpages, basically whatever i can find. As far as i know, you dont have one centralized location for 'janitor' or 'sysop' type reference, it looks to be pretty spread out...unless it's hidden in the cabal locker-room. (Perhaps someday, I might be that person that creates a centralized page with everything the budding janitor/sysop would need, just a thought)

Anyway, in Febuary, when i move...i will NOT be working, and thusly, will have oodles of time during my jobhunting to really start DOING SOMETHING more CONSTRUCTIVE for Un. This will provide me with ample time to get used to the mechanics of whatever i am required to do, and once i start working again, it should be a simple matter to continue the routine. Obviously, although i might have SOME knowledge of what to do, a lot of the mechanics of manipulating a wiki is unknown to me. I would, at this time, like to request some links or some helpful advice from the dick-heads powers-that-be. If you have no use for a janitor, that's fine, let me know here. Finnius.png

Wikia Staff chooses janitors - Janitor is a specific right on Wikia/Uncyc, unlike on other wikis which use janitor as a term for an admin. Just FYI. :) — Sir Manticore progress-wheel.gif 15:34, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
oops, I presumed that here, you just take on some of the tasks, and if you do good, you get bumped with some sort of +o or something...ok, well i guess i would like you all to consider me for some sort of low-paying, low-visibility, self-esteem crushing, mind-less, repetitive tasks...I would like to experience first-hand the misery that is 'JANITOR' Finnius.png
"...what I have decided is that I shall (probably) not be creating any articles...". Now I'm sad. I dunno about this "janitor" thing, but writing is Uncyc's raison d'etre. Baby steps, finnius. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:11, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
screw that. I realise that my style is not conductive to Un...and i refuse to hack shit out just to be 'liked' Finnius.png
Style? Conductive? Liked? These words mean nothing. Nothing! Hack, however, I do. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:52, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I delete stuff just to be liked. Won't somebody love me? Spang talk 20:45, 04 Jan 2008

Yo, guys, he's not talking about being a janitor, he's talking about doing the shit work on Uncyc. He just used the term "Janitor". Finnius, feel free to join me in some shit work:
  1. Patrol Special:Newpages. QVFD one-liners and obvious crap. ICU anything that looks like an honest attempt at an article. More rarely, add {{construction}} to any article that someone's working on continuously, but they forgot the tag on. This is about a daily or twice-daily job.
  2. Template purging. Some overused templates, including, but not limited to, {{Jesus Approved}}, {{Satan Approved}}, and the like need purging from time to time. Maybe weekly, if that.
  3. Search for any nonsense in articles, usually found by searching for [[Link title]], <nowiki>Insert non-formatted text here</nowiki>, <math>Insert formula here</math>, ==Headline Text==, and [[Image:Example.jpg]]. Find these things, and you're likely to find a load of crap along with them. Give the article a good patching.
  4. Special:Wantedpages - make some redirects. This is a constant job.
  5. Check out User:Dr. Skullthumper/Status for an approximate list of pages that might have inappropriate templates on them. Keep in mind this is not exact! It takes a while to update. But these pages are worth checking daily.
  6. UN:PIC if you're any good at photoshopping (I'm not).
  7. Welcome all the users that haven't been welcomed that you can find on Special:Newpages. Once you're done with that, go here and welcome the rest.
  8. VOTE. VFH, VFP, VFD. This is the most important job you could pick. Make yourself a regular.
That's all that's coming to mind at the moment. How's that for some ideas?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:58 Jan 04, 2008
Also, purge russian reversals and random Chuck Norris references. Use the search function, go down to the 20th result or so, and start killing. Quoticides are good, too, and generally patrolling RC. Oh, and write articles. Not everything you write has to be FA material, you know! Besides, writing is trial-and-error. It'll take time, and plenty of it, before you start getting the hang of it, start with an UnNews or HowTo title, or a spin on a mainspace subject. Keep reading HTBFANJS and the pages on VFH, and don't give up. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 22:08, Jan 4
Yes, i didnt realise 'shit work' and 'janitor' were 2 different distinctions...YAA TASKS! This was exactly the sort of list i wanted to receive. Thanks, and I'll start learning/doing these things immediately. I'z a happy fish! As for voting <groan> ok i'll do that as well..i'll troll pics/articles/unnews/etc. THANKS Finnius.png
Wow, I didn't realize that maintaining this place was so depressing. I might actually have to start doing something, if I can get my parents to stop bugging me about how often I'm on here. Right now, the only thing I seem to be doing is screwing around in the forums and talk pages and filling occasional picture requests.

<hick> Look atme. <hick> Ive been an a sysopator <hick> for six weeks now?! <hick> and already I me drunkard bum. <hick> NOW GEMMTE ANODER DRINKERD! /me slumps on the table ~ Mordillo where is my CAMEL FUCKER? 01:22, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Finnius.png looks with starry eyes at Mordillo, wondering how LONG it will take until he has sysop status, and can proudly pass out in his OWN vomit...instead of cleaning up others...
The first step in becoming a sysop is to never mention becoming a sysop.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 04:44 Jan 05, 2008
+s ... nah. right now im just happy to be shoveling manure out the door (finnius is a retard) Finnius.png
I'm also waiting for Mordillo's life span to run out. His sense of drama is overrated. --NXWave 12:35, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
You just keep at it NX, just keep at it. Eventually I'm going to have enough of your hints. ~ Mordillo where is my CAMEL FUCKER? 17:34, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
Almost figured it out, eh? Keep working on it, you'll get what he's saying eventually. Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 17:47, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
