Hey, guys. I was noticing that we have a lot of plain looking system messages (those in the MediaWiki namespace), with the notable exception of what you see when you're banned. This is obviously a parody of Wikipedia's version of the same text designed to be humorous.

Unfortunately, we haven't really customized that many of the other system messages. (For obvious reasons, only admins are able to edit these.) One system message we should spend some time on is MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext (the text that appears when you try to edit a page that has been protected). Wikipedia's got a highly informative version of this interface, and we should probably have our own version that's a spoof on it if we're going to continue to emulate them. Discuss. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 23:26, May 24, 2012 (UTC)

Well you go ahead and show us some examples Queazy. As long as they're at least mildly entertaining, than you can create a forum to see if others like them. Or turn it into a competition. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 22:36, May 25, 2012 (UTC)
Proceed with caution, and with consensus. System messages, like article titles and categories, are navigation tools; and giddily demonstrating your sense of humor, carried to the point of impeding navigation, makes the site less usable. Especially, a system message that a user may encounter identically a dozen times will quickly become less funny than just telling him what he did wrong. Spıke ¬ 22:40 25-May-12
Here. It's just an outline, but....
For semi-protected pages
Sorry, but only registered users can edit this page right now.
We've decided to protect this page from spam, genocide, and other forms of abuse that pages suffer from at the hands of unregistered and new users like you.

What can I do?
The best thing you can do is create an account if you don't already have one. If you do and you're getting this message still, try making a few more edits to Uncyclopedia's vast collection of non-protected articles. Or, you can submit an edit request on this article's talk page.

Discuss and modify all you want. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 01:11, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

I'd like to see a reference to adding a discussion on the talk page of the semi-protected article as another option for newly registered users. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 07:06, May 26, 2012 (UTC)
Or direct them to the right place to register a complaint/query about an article. Like these here forums! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 07:49, May 26, 2012 (UTC)

Anyway, we're getting a little off task. What I meant was, we should work on a message for MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext together. Take the original one and add or remove stuff to make it funnier and/or more concise. Think about what we did to MediaWiki:Blockedtext: "You can still read pages, but cannot edit, modify, change, amend, or revise them." --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 01:28, May 27, 2012 (UTC)

Anyway

If anyone has different ideas for what the banner should say, be bold and post them here! Yours just might be better than mine! --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 20:13, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

How about:

Sorry, but the Cabal (who does NOT exist) has let it be known that only the meager few can edit this page.
We've decided to protect this page from edits, modifications, alters, and changes that pages suffer at the hands of unregistered and new users like <insert name here>.

What can I do?
The best thing you can do is create an account if you don't already have one. If you do and you're still getting this message, put down the pills and try making a few more edits on Uncyclopedia's Guide to the Galaxy (a.k.a. its non-protected articles). Or, you can submit an edit request on this article's talk page. Or you can just end go end it all, but UN:N.

A bit morbid, yes? -- NotReallyMyUsernameOnTheRadıo 2012-05-29T05:24

Do we have big enough silver lock icons, like the ones used on Wikipedia? And gold locks?

Speaking of which, we need another one for fully protected articles, the ones only admins can edit. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 19:43, May 29, 2012 (UTC)


I suggest one for an absolutely locked up page:

The best thing you can do is contact an admin to do an edit request. Or you can just end go end it all, but no one will care.


And in Pokemon Islands Language:

Juzah! Cabal terabi gini juga baram SURU CHIA te droid buhigawa.
Ngamoe genji halaman mura edit, modifikasion, Encyclopedia Dramatica, e <insert name here> peoni derita muh changesi halaman jinja kea.

Ano kwo gaku maru?
Yaba wako jim kameron adamin hubung fo edit-maru. Or you can bunuh diri, ginichia peduli.

Note that Encyclopedia Dramatica means "alteration for a bad purpose".

Should we change the system message for Protectedpagetext?

  4. Symbol against vote Against. Keep it simple, above templates are trying too hard to be funny/abusive and could discourage a potential contributor. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 13:20, June 11, 2012 (UTC)

  7. All of the suggested changes are awful. If we are going to brighten the messages up a bit, it should be very subtly so as not to muddy the accessibility. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:00, June 24, 2012 (UTC)
    • Did you look at the new version? I assume you are looking at the above. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 00:04, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
      And this new suggested version is even drier than the old message? I don't understand what you are trying to change around here. It isn't broke, let's not fix it. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 00:42, June 25, 2012 (UTC)
      The only difference is that the new version tells the user if they can just log in to edit it, and a link to ask someone else to edit. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 00:53, June 25, 2012 (UTC)

Commentary

How about something simple, like: {{#ifeq: $1|protect |This page is currently fully protected and can be edited only by administrators. |This page is currently semi-protected and can be edited only by established registered users.}} [[{{TALKPAGENAME}}|Submit an edit request.]]

It's just the same as the header on Wikipedia's interface because it distinguishes between semi- and fully protected pages; that's all I was going for. But we don't have to go overboard. --Qzekrom sig trans Sir CuteReshiramOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)] 23:13, June 11, 2012 (UTC)
