Right now, the majority of websites allow you to share a post, an article or a page on Facebook, Twitter and other social systems. Wikipedia doesn't do it, but it doesn't need to, because people rarely have to share entire Wikipedia articles, just cite them, and Wikipedia allows you to do that, for a change. On humour websites, if someone enjoys reading a page, he will probably want to share it with other people. And if people share our articles on popular websites, this could increase Uncyclopedia's popularity.

As far as I know, we don't have such option here, but some editors do it manually (for example, Puppy with the Microsoft Knowledge Base). So what do you think? Anton (talk) 15:13, May 1, 2014 (UTC)

It's a good idea. We could have a share option! Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:39, May 3, 2014 (UTC)
We had one - sort of. Bizzeebeever put together a js that created a share "tab", which I think is still in use at the other website by the same name. I was part of the idea behind putting this together back then, and I had in mind that the tab actually be more like the watch/edit/history tabs that we have on here. Alternatively I'd have it situated below the Toolbox on the nav bar on the left. I haven't looked at putting this together for a fair while, but it shouldn't be that much of a stretch - except of course, as we all know, I have no time any more.                               Puppy's talk page04:05 am 04 May 2014
Both of the options will be good, although the sharing option a tab will make it more visible. Any other ideas or suggestions? Anton (talk) 16:30, May 16, 2014 (UTC)
