use "uncyclopedia -help" to display a complete list of current options.
Uncyclopedia is a Wiki-based encyclopedia, the basis for the design of
another popular, but less complete online encyclopedia called
"Wikipedia", in the same way that Microsoft's pesky .chm (HTML Help)
files are an inferior alternative to man(1).
Uncyclopedia can be used to access information on all platforms that
can interpret HTML into a human-readable format. Current versions of
Uncyclopedia run on Unix, VMS, Windows 95/NT, Windows CE, BeOS, 386DOS,
OS/2 EMX, MacOS 2, MacOS Y, Amiga, Commodore 64, Dynix, Minix, GNU
Hurd, Etch-A-Sketch and certain versions of Abacus.
At start up, Uncyclopedia will load the article specified on the
command line. For help with locating an article, press "?" or "H"
while running Uncyclopedia.
Uncyclopedia will prompt you to create a new article if the article
name you provide does not yet exist. This feature is excellent for
quickly creating pages about your enemies and in-jokes that only your
closest imaginary friends know.
Uncyclopedia provides many command-line options. Some require special
privileges, others can be used by anyone at any time. These are noted
in the reference below.
If this argument is used, Uncyclopedia will find the article
name supplied within any article. This feature is a total waste
of time, since Uncyclopedia can handle articles under every
potential misspelling of every word without difficulty.
-edit Edit an existing article. This provides an interface for
changing all aspects of the article, from adding gibberish
through removing content.
Deprecated command is only used by administrators. Shows
commentary about the named article regarding various revisions
and reasons for these revisions.
Shows a list of people who have modified the article and what
they modified within the article. Only administrators tend to
use this option, since old versions are never as good as the one
you just amended with "OMG MY PENIS IS SO BIG".
-move Quickest and easiest way to create useful redirects from random
articles to other random articles in Uncyclopedia. Regular use
of this parameter ensures that nobody will ever find what
they're looking for where they expect to find it.
Administrators love this one.
-watch Keep track of articles you have seen in the past or written.
Proper use ensures nobody else modifies your articles, possibly
changing "OMG MY PENIS IS SO BIG" to "OMG I'M A RETARD" or an
inferior version of the article.
-blank Blank an article and remove any incorrect information it might
contain. Use this parameter regularly on articles about your
country of origin, favorite politicians, video games, and other
extremely important articles.
If this parameter is used, Uncyclopedia will give you an
interface that allows the quick modification of existing text to
make it completely incomprehensible and remove any past,
present, or future inaccuracies.
Retrieve a random Zork page.
Use this to specify your preferred language for reading and
editing Uncyclopedia. Defaults to en.
-help Display quick help with common commands.
Controls Uncyclopedia articles and users based on the option
delete use to remove articles that a user spent hours of hard
work on to get a message on your talk page so you feel
block=user this will cause most users to join the IRC channel
within 30-90 seconds where they will bitch and moan about how
unfair the admin was or how it was their 'friend' that changed
the article so they don't deserve it.
rollback removes the last piece of important information,
thought-provoking commentary, or otherwise brilliant prose from
the specified article.
protect keeps non-administrators from making Uncyclopedia
In addition to various "standard" environment variables such as NPOV,
Uncyclopedia supports the following unique capabilities:
HTBFANJS Directs you to a resource about writing and editing
HELP Contains information about a Beatles Album. Why you would
ever want to read it is beyond the scope of this man(1) page.
A powerful tool for making your voice heard by those totally
heartless members of the oligarchy.
VFH Method by which you can select articles for the Uncyclopedia
VFP Method by which you can select pictures to be placed on the
VFD A location where you list all the best articles in
Uncyclopedia to ensure the admins know to delete them.
QVFD A location where you list all the absolute best articles in
Uncyclopedia because you want to get the admins to respond to
your opinion of the article more quickly than the weeks to
months it takes with the VFD method due to excessive red
man mount - don't tell me there's nothing suspicious about that.
man cat - the end result of some process.
man kill - what you will do with me, following the statements above.
Is a quick starting point for Uncyclopedia. This is the default
article shown if none is selected on the command line.
