I'm just curious. When, how, and why was it established that it's a bad idea to add your own article to template:RecentUnNews. It used to be perfectly acceptable from about 2006-2011. Why the sudden (and secret) change? If you have any links, please don't hesitate to include them.

I understand not everybody writes the best UnNews, and I understand you want to avoid spam/vandalism/vanity. Nobody elaborated on this rule change.

Nobody seems to have elaborated on anything as far as UnNews goes. After SPIKE left, it's mostly been either chaos or inactivity. TheHumbucker did quite a bit with it, and was about to become the new chief. Apparently, he was angered by rules suddenly appearing about the "recent" template, so he left. I think it had something to do with IP revert wars with people adding their own stuff to the template. Some people reverted the additions, saying the stuff wasn't feature-worthy or something, and a flamewar ensued. Last I checked, UnNews was a minefield with too many leaders and not enough followers. I really have no idea what's going on with it now. I remember most of it all happened in the forums, though. Just going back a couple of pages in the Dump should be enlightening. -- Tinypony Sir "TheSlyPony" Invariably certifiable. 05:33 November 26, 2011 (UTC)
There was a forum a few months ago on this. Those like myself who supported an UnNews coordinator/editor were defeated. There has been no UnNews overall editor since The Humbucker left. So I stopped contributing there and Funnybony - who had been writing hundreds of UnNews stories - also dropped out a month or so ago. So what you now see is what the majority wanted at the time. There was no secret change. See here: Forum:The_UnNews discussion. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 07:36, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

It's a bad idea if 9 out of 10 cats think your article is shit, otherwise, go right ahead. -- Prof. Olipro Icons-flag-gb KUN (W)Anchor Op Bur. (Harass) 05:09, December 4, 2011 (UTC)
Spike did a good job on UnNews. Since then there's been too much power-hungry Ian Beale style stupidity and people going off in pointless strops. Mattsnow is now looking after stuff in a helpful and relaxed manner. So I really can't see why anyone who wants to write UnNews, wouldn't be doing so now. mAttlobster.

I answered on PF4Eva's talkpage, and Matt lobster is right: I'm the UnNews editor lol. I read them all and I take care of it almost daily, it's great to know how unnoticed it goes lmao! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 18:19, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
Snow's been handling UnNewses promptly and efficiently. I wasn't here a month ago, but since I've been back it's been going real smoothly. UnNews is my favorite facet of this site... I hope more people return to it.-- Phlegm Leoispotter * (garble! jank!) 19:19, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! I don't check the forums often though... XD Snowflake mini Mattsnow 19:26, December 5, 2011 (UTC)
