This came up on IRC a few days ago - wondering if it might be a good idea to have a welcome message for vandals etc who aren't quite insta-ban, but still need to be shut up - sort of like an alternative to banning if they're more or less harmless (i.e not blanking pages etc). Alternatively, it could be a bit of explanation for those who've already been banned - might stop them doing it again, at least? Just an idea.

I like it. I like it a lot. Your CSS/tagging needs work though; I don't think this is supposed to show up inside the box. —Hinoa KUN (talk) 16:18, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Oh gawd... how do I fix that?? Most of the stuff was just copied from Template:Welcome, I don't know anything about it really. I'll try begging on IRC. -- Paw_print.jpg 16:34, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Fixed it for you. It seems you <noinclude>ed out the end of the wiki table, so it wouldn't show up when it was called. —Hinoa KUN (talk) 18:01, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Yaaay :D. *potters off to Recent Changes* -- Paw_print.jpg 21:57, 28 November 2006 (UTC)
Awesome template. If I ever bother patrolling recentchanges, I might start using it. ^_^ --User:Nintendorulez 00:23, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
I might put a topic in the main forum too, cause more people look at that. Off we go... And thanks. :) -- Paw_print.jpg 20:46, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
I love it! I suggest you make that into an official template. I'll get you started: Template:Oh Dear. --General Insineratehymn 21:17, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
I need to get around & pasting it to my user page with my other shite. ^_^ SpacerSpacerPremierTomMayfairChe RedPhone Unsoc Hammer and sickle 21:19, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
Insineratehymn, see also {{Unwelcome}}. Though, to tell the truth, I prefer {{Oh Dear}} myself... —Hinoa KUN (talk) 21:22, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
Moved back. :) I just thought it might be easier to remember. -- Paw_print.jpg 21:54, 30 November 2006 (UTC)

Oh Dear...

Beware! The evil eye is upon thee!

Hello, Welcome for vandals?, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Unfortunately, we've noticed that your "contributions" — not to put too fine a point on it — have been crap. In other words, your initial contributions did NOT meet our standards for inclusion in the mainspace.

If you came here to vandalize — rather than it just being something that comes naturally to you — you should be aware that your edits will not remain on the wiki and in fact it will take us much less time to undo them than it took you to think them up in the first place.

If you came here to advertise a product or service, this is the wrong website to do so. We are here to make people laugh, not sell products and services. If we suspect you are a bot and not a person, you will not last long on this site. Spammed links to external sites and typing completely random text is a sign that you are a bot and not a person. If you are willing to pay for advertising, you should contact our webhost, and they may be able to make an arrangement with you.

If you thought you were making good edits, then perhaps before you make more of them, you might do some reading first. And start with some of these pages, especially How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid and the Beginner's Guide:

Good luck and I'm sorry you got off to such a bad start. I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

If you need help or think this template has been placed unfairly, please write to me at the bottom of my talk page (by clicking on my signature below) or to an Admin on their talk page. Alternatively, you can ask at the Dump, or add the following: {{help}} to this page along with a message and someone will come along and help you if they can. Again, welcome!

I like it, but I think we should still ban vandals for at least a few hours as a stopgap. -- Tinymooose.gif » Sir Savethemooses Grand Commanding Officer ... holla atcha boy» 00:30, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

I think we should ban poor editors for at least a few weeks as a stopgap. And that template is as shitty looking as they come. The grammar is bad, the color scheme is awful, the wording is awkward....I'll either delete it or rewrite it this weekend if y'all don't put some real effort into it.

...Well, alright then. Sorry. I know the colour scheme is awful, and sorry about that, but I didn't think it needed to be particularly nice looking - these are vandals we're talking about. I just thought it mostly needed to attract attention. But I take your point, I'll change the colour scheme. Sorry. It's still only an idea... And by the way, it's moved back to my userspace. I only moved it in the first place because I'd only had positive reactions so far. -- Paw_print.jpg 10:55, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
