Sorry, there's already a seal, but it's not like we can't change it

As many of you know, the folks at Wikipedia have been building an incredibly dumb and misguided thing called Wikiversity, which they're probably hoping will threaten the very fabric of traditional edumacation throughout the world. So in response, I've just finished setting up Uncycloversity, which is even dumber and more misguided, but has pretty much the same amount of content. Their version is still in "beta," of course, whereas such a concept is largely meaningless here... So technically, we're first out of the starting-block once again!

This area still needs more material, such as (just off the top of my head):

  • Articles that are written as courses, with pop quizzes, exams, and so on. (There's no requirement to put "Uncycloversity:" before the titles of such articles.)
  • Dare I say more celebrity-instructor course offerings, along the lines of this and this?
  • Phony documents and other pages that a typical university website would have, in the same vein as this one.
  • More options for Uncycloversity:RandomSlogan (Wikiversity is doing a contest for their slogan, but hey, they suck.)
  • A sports-team name and a mascot, suitable for use on T-Shirts and other quality merchandise. (See poll below)
  • As many entries on this web site as we can get away with (note: this will be extremely difficult to pull off, if not impossible).
  • Comments and suggestions (below, or on my talk page if you're embarrassed to be seen in public).

Maybe it won't amount to anything here any more than it will on Wikipedia/Wikiversity, but I guess we have to continue to kick their sorry asses anyway, or at least try, if only for the sake of appearances.

Suggested Team Names

Feel free to add your own suggested names, but please don't change any that have already been voted on, yada yada yada (that apparently messes everything up, sorry)

What should Uncycloversity sports-team name be?

The poll was created at 06:35 on December 20, 2006, and so far 10 people voted.

I guess we can leave the poll open indefinitely (is there even a way to close them, without actually deleting them from the page?)... But with 31 votes and well over half for "Fighting Sophias," I'd say we probably have a winner - or at least enough of one to start on a mascot graphic, suitable for inkjet-printing onto iron-on sheets, for clothing and such. I/we could upload the graphics as SVG's, really big JPG's, or both... However, I might not be able to get around to it for a while, so if anyone wants to beat me to the punch, feel free!  c • > • cunwapquc? 16:54, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Change the name to Unversity. Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 01:12, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Agree. --General Insineratehymn 01:16, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
I thought about that, but ultimately I decided it looked too much like we'd just left the "i" out of "University" by mistake. And since the letter "I" is easy to miss (visually) anyway, it didn't strike me as funny enough to overcome the advantage "Uncycloversity" has, namely that it's instantly identifiable with Uncyclopedia on other sites that might someday link to it. But if enough people agree, I guess it wouldn't bother me all that much... (It would take quite a few people agreeing, though!)  c • > • cunwapquc? 02:32, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
Still, there's the whole irony advantage to Unversity (involving minus the I). Crazyswordsman...With SAVINGS!!!! (T/C) 02:51, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
There's no "I" in team. As a compromise, the name "Uncyclovers_ty" would be unpopular with everyone.
By that logic, why not just "Unversty"? Then it sounds illierate, dirty, and unpopular. --Bahustard 00:13, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
Ha ha ha I was wrong. It uses "Uncyclopedia Potatoes". Spuds is PERFECT for the Uncycloversity...or at least it gets my vote.... --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 01:18, 8 September 2006 (UTC)
  • For Unversity and start translating all of our popular articles into Latin.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 02:26, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

I volunteer to run the School of UnTheology. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 15:42, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

You're hired! Basically it just needs stuff for the Course Catalog, though - I'm working on one right now, sort of. But it doesn't have to be fancy or anything, at least not in my opinion.  c • > • cunwapquc? 16:48, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
Cool! I'll see if I can help out a bit in my copious spare time. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 16:15, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
  • what do you want me to do i could run the school of fucked up teachers JAL 200 16:31, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
Sorry JAL, I had to remove your poll addition ("Killers") - apparently any change to the poll resets the whole thing. Dang...  c • > • cunwapquc? 16:48, 10 September 2006 (UTC)

Admittedly, this sort of land-rush to obtain deanships isn't something I was expecting, but I guess we'd just need a Faculty/Staff Directory page, or something to that effect. Why not? Everyone can just add themselves to the list under whatever title they want... I can probably set it up in the next couple of days, unless someone wants to get on it sooner.  c • > • cunwapquc? 03:43, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

Wikiversity...

...is so dumb and stupid. someone's an awfully good salesman and someone has an awful lot of money. (but then i've been proved wrong before -- more times than i forget remembering.) - -- mowgli 17:03, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

How dumb do you consider yourself, relative to Wkiversity, on a scale of 1 to 4? (please note that Wikiversity is mispelt, eh?)

Damn this "poll" program is awesome. the fact that it counts your last vote (you can change your mind!) while disregarding your repeat votes is a total flamenco to my small brain! JASON rocks! -- mowgli 17:11, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

UnDegrees

We need some UnDegrees to pass out here. AAS = Annoying Asinine Shit, BS = Bullshit, MBS = More Bullshit, PDH = Piled Higher and Deeper. That way we can add them to the names of graduates and what degrees they earned with a link to the description of the degrees. Some people might have to graduate with honors. We should also form student UnClubs, a student UnNewspaper, have UnSports teams, and give out UnScholarships. --Lt. Orion Blastar (talk) 04:56, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

and then we can see just how deep this rabbit hole goes... the faculty should set up templates, something along the lines of:
Unversity awards <insertusernamehere> a BS in Applied UnTheology 
and Writing HowTo's.
Pity it won't make him employable. Signed <insertfacultyheadsighere>

Great! Marshal Uncyclopedian! Talk to me!

Are these offered in radians, or just as degrees? --Carlb 13:32, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Maybe once a person gets 180 Degrees in Pure New Math, they get 3 Radians... -- Soul101 Icons-flag-gb~MAREPENT! 13:36, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

Should UnDegrees exist?
