I'm attempted to build an article on archery. Hard to believe there's not already one here. If you want to join in, fire away. WHY??? 03:20, September 8, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks to THEDUDEMAN for saying this article needs more work. Even though I already said that. Thanks for agreeing. WHY??? 01:37, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Hey, he was just doing the maintenance thing where he trawls the new pages log to see what needs to be QVFD'd or ICU'd. It's no big deal. This article is safe as long as the construction tag is active (although cool people will put their WIPs in their userspace so they don't have to worry about a deadline). --C:\syndrome\_ 02:35, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
THEDUDEMAN posted a note on my user talk several days ago that the construction tag was at the bottom of the page and was missed. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 02:40, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter where the template is. Special:NewPages lets you see which pages already have the tag if you click "mark tagged pages". --C:\syndrome\_ 02:52, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

edit Feature template suggestion

Please forgive this temper tantrum-throwing noob for the remarks above. THEDUDEMAN pointed out that my having the construction box at the bottom of the page instead of the top meant it could easily be missed, which is what happened.

But that gave me an idea. Why can't the feature box go at the top of a featured article? Some of these articles seriously decay over time, and a visitor might never read far down enough to see there was a featured version. Why couldn't the feature box go at the top?

edit I need help

I admit it. I started this article simply because I wanted to make a link from Sun Bee to archery, and discovered there wasn't any article here. I thought there should be one, so I started it without seeing my target. I don't want to shoot arrows at random. So I'll do as my Mommy did, and ask people for suggestions. Any ideas for a focus/slant/etc. for this article? WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 01:54, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

Why don't you make it about sex? You already have the arrow between two limbs with a sudden release. What is an arrow penetrating a target? And what does an arrow in a Valentine's heart really look like? And what about Cupid, the little boy god of love and sex who shoots arrows at people? And Robin Hood wearing tights with his Merry Men? What's up with that? Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 03:11, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
You may have an idea there. No, you do have an idea, I'll just have to see if it clicks for me. Thanks for the suggestion. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 22:08, September 15, 2009 (UTC)
That makes sense. But if you're going to do that, instead of making the article pornographic I'd take a Conservative Christian slant to it. Check out the Conservapedia article on sex to see what I mean. I'd be all like, "Although the Bible touches upon archery and its necessity in our ancestors' lives (but only with certification by an ordained instructor and on a designated archery range; all else is prohibited and condemned), it is commonly agreed by decent people that children should not be taught archery in schools, but instead taught to abstain from it until they achieve proper certification. However, this doesn't stop liberal scum from wanting to actually have children participate in archery while in school, calling it a 'sport'..." --C:\syndrome\_ 17:06, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
Ooh, and mention how God meant for archery to be between a bow and an arrow, and never between two arrows... --C:\syndrome\_ 17:08, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for your suggestions. I just might be able to play with this--after being certified, of course. If you'd like to work on this with me, I'd welcome your help. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 17:19, September 21, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I'll make some edits along those lines. Tell me if you don't like them. When I get the time I'll write some sections and post them here. --C:\syndrome\_ 20:57, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

edit Changes

  1. I trimmed a paragraph from the history section into a footnote. The divergence into Sun Bees didn't seem funny or pertinent to the article, so I removed some of the detail. It's generally a good idea not to give excessive detail when writing, like how in Wikipedia they'll allow weasel words as long as it's backed up by a citation because nobody cares what particular experts think this or that.
  2. I started a section about archery in a modern context. But I'm not sure how to explain the necessary rites or certification necessary for practicing archery, or even if I want to. Perhaps it's best to leave it vague and let the reader's mind fill in the specifics, as long as we establish that it's very serious business.
  3. Next I plan to write something about arrow-on-arrow archery, and for ironic effect include a picture of a "Tom of Finland"-esque hunter who kind of oozes gay, if that's okay with you. It might also be good to write some biblical archery erotica (I'm thinking Song of Solomon here), but I don't know if I would be good at writing that. --C:\syndrome\_ 02:33, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I appreciate your work on the article. Frankly, it's just not clicking with me. If you'd like to simply take the article over, that would be fine with me. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 02:43, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
You don't want to make this hapen? You don't want to take this to VFH and have the whole world talking about Syndrome and Ydoi's latest brilliant collab? Suit yourself, but don't start crying when I get all the girls and you just get a fish. --C:\syndrome\_ 02:52, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
I like fish because they smell like girls. Seriously, it would be great to collaborate with you (your review of Sun Bee really helped), but I was already pretty much burned out on the archery article. Then Miley came up with an idea which apparently inspired us in very different directions. Right now I'm not relating to what I wrote or to what you wrote either. It may be just because I'm not seeing your vision, as this is still a work in progress. Or maybe I'm just burned out--blame it on those damn Sun Bees. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 03:24, September 23, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, but come back and tell me what you thing when/if I have it fleshed out more. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 03:35, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Found this while searching for a pic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Gay_Archer_(P1041) --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 01:14, October 4, 2009 (UTC)

This is for real? Amazing. At first I thought I was reading Uncyclopedia. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:18, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
