UnBestiary

Tweetie the Sophiabird

Here we go, I set up this little chat for two reasons: 1.)So we who are already familiar with the topics discussed on Un-Bestiary can invite new meat to discuss them here and emerge with a valid concensus on the steps that are to be taken to solve the task at hand. 2.) Uncyclopedian is unlikely to find it; I think he has Talk:Un-Bestiary on his watchlist. He's chillaxed though, so I think he can come. But only if he brings cake....

(I came, and this is on my watchlist. I brought cake, but just for DiZ and I. Uncyclopedian 21:21, 12 July 2006 (UTC))

Anyways, the un-issue at hand is: the Un-Bestiary, Uncyclopedia's new un-collection of Un-Creatures needs an un-logo. Ghelae brought it up, and I think it deserves consideration. (<s>No, I brought it up, DiZ! Look back at the talk page! Uncyclopedian 21:26, 12 July 2006 (UTC)) UnBooks, UnMeta, UnNews all have their logos (plus the two debating potatoes in the corner,right there), and Wikipedia has one for their WikiSpecies thing... Problem is: we don't!! Now, Ghelae suggested (prepare yourself): a monochrome badger! We don't need some ground-dwelling land flounder as our mascot, we need a bloodthirsty juggernaut of a beast that knows how to fornicate with a garden hose, and fornicate well, by God! Furthermore, Ghel suggested we wait until Un-Bestiary is afinni or whatever you said, which (for all of you who didn't know like me) means "finished". Now, this is a "content-free" Uncyclopedia anyone can edit, so it won't truly be finished until the internet crashes, someone deletes the page, or the Taahgaarxians come and devour us all, so...we need a logo and mascot now to make us look all professissionnable and all and encourage others to contribute, and SLT (stuff like that). God, I love to hear my self type... --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!) AMEN! 00:23, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Okay, so here is what has been suggested as our mascot and logo already:

  • Sugarglider (by me, DiZ the Great)
  • Monochrome badger (by Ghelae the Mediocre)
  • Old Book with Gold Letters saying Un-Bestiary, with mascot somewhere on it. (by Uncyclopedian the much much greater than DiZ)
  • Also, can't rule out Taahgaarxians if anyone wants to nominate them

Questions

Um, how does UnSpecies fit in with the whole UnBestiary phylum. A wikimedia.org-style front page (with the project logos) was hastily tossed together when meta: was dumped wherever it is this week, these icons link UnSource and UnSpecies to meta: namespaces which are really just demos, at most a few pages each. The UnSpecies main page links to en:UnBestiary here - are the two the same project (a WikiSpecies parody) under different names, or is the plan to take them in different directions? --Carlb 01:04, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Truly, it was Ghelae who created the UnSpecies demo. I had nothing to do with it and I only found out about it after I created the Un-Bestiary for my own purposes. I assumed at the time that Un-Bestiary was going to somehow be merged in the Un-Species project, but I'm not sure what the plan is. You'll have to ask Ghelae; here's his Talk Page for convenience, or wait till he answers here, I know he prowls the village dump like a bloated badger every once in a while, so your questions will probably be answered soon enough. --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!) AMEN! 01:15, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
If your question is the last bit you typed, then... I don't know. UnSpecies is a parody of WikiSpecies, the idea is too eventually make nonsensical classifications or whatever. The UB, however, is a listing of the major Uncyc animals. So... *shrugs*. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 16:49, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Wow, you really like to go against the grain, don't ya? How about a Potato Grue? Or a Grue eating a potato? Or how about Hinoa dying in a pool of rat urine as Taahgaarxians eat his entrails? I like that last one. What do you propose? --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!) AMEN! 01:26, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
I propose you start cleaning the Beastiary. The current stench makes the Aegean stables seem like a patch of flowers. But as for logos, I'm not sure we need one, really. This isn't like a seperate project (yet), it's just a part of Uncyc. But if we do get a logo, a potato grue sounds good. —Sir Major Hinoa [TALK] [KUN] 01:56, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, thank you, Ghelae, for your blatant unadletered vandalism, and sorry, but I assumed if you chose to put a monochrome badger on the UnSpecies logo, you wanted a frikkin' monochrome badger on the logo!!

Hmmm. I like the first one. Not too crazy about the animal of choice, but I like it. Good job, and I think I might reconsider the badger again if this becomes the logo. --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!) AMEN! 17:06, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Okay, here's the deal, i can put the logo up there for you, but it's kind of frowned upon, especially since this sin't even a featured article or anything, It's not that it's alot of work or anything, it's just the logos are supposed to be reserved for very special pages and reskins and whatnot. If you're absolutely sure you want a logo, and you promise not to ask for a custom logo on every page you make, I'll put the logo of your choice up as soon as you tell me your choice.

Maybe we should wait a little longer. You know, till we have at least two creatures on every letter, a bigger team of contributors, and maybe then it'll get featured. Still, I wouldn't ask for a logo on all pages, just the main one titled "Un-Bestiary". Basically, the best reason I could think of to justify putting up a logo now is because this is a parody website, and we need something to parody WikiSpecies, since they have a logo. I think waiting would be best, though. Let's give it a bit more time, and when it's fully consummated and ripe we'll let you know. You're an admin, unless your User Page lies, so I assume you know what you're talking about and your actions will certainly be welcomed more than us lesser beings'. Maybe that's why Template:UnBestiary got huffed. Anyways, keep that in mind and I'll leave a message on your talk page when it's ready. --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!)

Obviously MoneySign's excessive penii sucking has led him to believe that he can't be wrong. Unfortunately for Money, Uncyclopedia has MediaWiki:Skin which allows any page to have its own logo...

That requires a change to the sitewide javascript for each affected page. Possible, but generally discouraged around here. Attempting to get a custom namespace is even more difficult; meta.uncyclomedia.org has a few as any bureaucrat there can create them on Special:Namespaces, but here we don't have access to do that - only Wikia staff do and it's a direct change which must be made to a file on the server. --Carlb 20:29, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
So, basically, what's the final consensus (I think that's spelled right): we really shouldn't make such drastic changes until we know this side-project, or whatever you wanna call it becomes relatively influential, large, important, etc. and (especially) shiny, like UnBooks, UnNews, and other sister projects have, otherwise it just wouldn't be worth it all. Or not? What's the verdict? P.S: Yes, MoneySign, I think Tompkins, being a newer and younger admin, is simply shinier and less run-down than you, therefore knows better than. Sorry if I have sickened thee in any way, tis in my nature to cause discomfort of the highest degree. Plus, you called my template ugly. You're ugly, your mother's ugly Okay, no, I admit that last statement was crossing the line. I've got nasty sunburn and it's making me testy. --Señor DiZtheGreat Cuba flag large CUN AOTM ( Worship me!) (Praise me!) (Join me!) AMEN! 22:44, 17 July 2006 (UTC)
