What is the The Article Whisperer?

An annual writing competition held by Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles. It is intended to encourage submissions for requested articles. Participants are limited only to articles which are listed on requested articles pages (such as UN:REQ, UN:VITAL, and UN:WANTED).[1]

Pick a topic amongst the ones below!

When is the The Article Whisperer going to be held?

  • From December 28th ― January 10th entries will be accepted.
  • From January 11th ― January 17th, entries will be locked and judged.
  • From January 18th ― January 25th, winners will be announced, articles will be moved into the mainspace, and all entries will be unlocked.
  • January 25th ― the end. Or is it?

(n.b.: all times are to be measured by UTC, and all phases of the contest end at midnight on the specified day; entries may be accepted late under certain conditions.)

Who can enter and what are the rules?

All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few restrictions apply. Judges are permitted to enter the competition, however, they may not enter an article in the category they are judging (see here for the list of judges).

You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one article per category per person). An article may only be entered in one category, and it must fit within the requirements of a particular category. You may not change three words and the title of an article to make it eligible for another category; such behavior will result in both articles being disqualified.

Did you know...
You can add orphaned images to your entry?

Collaborations of two or more writers will be allowed but are limited to one article per category. When submitting a team entry, the article will be in the userspace of the group's "leader". Each team member will share a single prize. Any writer part of a collaboration is free to work on a separate entry by themselves though, like all entries, will be permitted one article per category. Two collaborations do not count as one entry; they count as two.

Articles created prior to the competition cannot be submitted. Also, no plagiarism. Should we discover your work is not original, you will be disqualified. Using resources such as the Reefer Desk, Image Request, or Pee Review is forbidden. Users may, however, use Uncyclopedia:Incomplete List of Basic Articles, Uncyclopedia:Vital, Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process, Special:Wantedpages, Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles (including UN:REQ's RC template) and/or Inspire an Article to help get ideas. Again, please remember that participants are limited only to articles (and related subpages) which are specifically listed on UN:REQ, UN:ILBA, UN:VITAL and Special:Wantedpages.

Where should I put my entry?

The article should be placed on your namespace. During the first week of the competition, you should post a link to your article in the entry section below and sign as you would a forum post or vote. It should look somewhat like this:

If you're a paranoid, or afflicted with OCD, or just want to tell people to shove off until after the competition, add {{TAW-WIP}} to your entry.

Footnotes

  1. Unlike {{reqaward}} which is given to editors in recognition of submitting a successful request, or more specifically one of adequate quality (i.e. not ending up on ICU/QVFD/VFD), this competition is intended for the creation of potential FA-level articles.
