First there's the disgrace that was Wikimania. If that wasn't enough to turn you off, it just got worse. Too bad the only places in this world that actually share our ideals are things like The Onion and the Daily Show, and they're the kind of people a wholesome, independent humor site like us doesn't want to associate with. Too bad there are no humor websites like us. I guess that's what it's like when you're an Uncyclopedian. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 16:40, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Uncyclomania didn't do too well last time it was proposed. Nothing really happened. There area few other wikis like Illogicopedia, Wikiality, and Wiqipedia that we could get together with if we need more people to organize it. --~ Tophatsig 17/08/2007 @ 21:21
I'd like to do one with Conservapedia, but they actually believe what they write. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 00:52, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Ya, there should totally be a convention. Hell, if it was within an hour drive of where I live, I might even go. P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 01:11, Aug 18, 2007
What you could do is go to Uncyclomedia's wiki, and go to the Requests for projects area, then ask Carlb for some space for an official wiki to help organize the event like Wikimedia. There could be a vote for a location, information about the convention, et cetera. However, there is a financial aspect, which probably caused the thing to fail in the first place. ~ Tophatsig 18/08/2007 @ 01:16
You think we could pull it off? It would awesome if we could get a convention! --YeOldeLuke 07:56, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, I guess, we're kinda like Neil Cicierega in our humor. Original and actually funny. Maybe we could get him. --Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 16:05, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, let's see if people are actually willing to have a convention: ~ Tophatsig 18/08/2007 @ 17:18
Should this thread be moved to The Dump? P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 19:25, Aug 23, 2007

I'm of the opinion that it may be more convenient to organise two events (if we're really clever, simultaneously; but let's not get ahead of ourselves), one in the USA and one in Europe. Well, OK, England. Well, OK, London. Either way, I think we have enough Uncyclopedians in each country to warrant localised gatherings. Or something. -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 21:43, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I think the last one was São Paulo, Brasil. About all I understood from the various complex charts and graphs presented at that gathering was that the number of bans was up while article quality dropped off the chart. At least that's what I think they were saying; or was it "yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today"? --23:18, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Question Time!


Would you go to Uncyclomania?

Score: +4 to go
Score: +2 to not go

If you had to fly there would you go?

Score: +1 to go
Score: +2.5 to stay

Would you donate to help rent the facility?

Score: +3 to help
Score: +1 to be stingy

If you could open up some sort of booth at Uncyclomania depending on your donation, and possibly make money would you?

Score: +0 to donate
Score: +2 not to donate

If we setup a wiki to organize the event, would you help us?

Score: +4 to help
Score: +1 not to help

What location should Uncyclomedia be in?

We're talking major cities, not Hickstown, Montana Texas. Please have a vote for an American location and an alternative European location. Also, no against votes.

I'll have you know I resent that. It's a stereotype that Montana is full of hicks and I make it a point to run over everyone who continues to use it with my horse and wagon.
Seriously, though, it bugs me, so I'm going to change it. --Captain Random 21:36, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Unless we really have a sizeable number of people from elsewhere in Europe (do we?), I'm guessing this would be the place it would be by default. Or even somewhere more in the middle of the country (says she who lives as far North as you can go without having to eat haggis.) --Strange (but) Untrue  Whhhy?Whut?How? *Back from the dead* 17:28, 18 August 2007 (UTC)
