I did a bit here about space camp and Billie Joe and Mike building Tre Cool everyday after school. I'd just like to know why it got deleted lol, I really enjoy this site and I read the article about how to be funny. Could I have some feedback? --OldAndInYourWay (talk) 16:41, April 12, 2013 (UTC)

I undid your last two edits. All they did was insert "Osama bin laden (Named Tre Cool for obvious reasons?)"--that is, drop the name of bin Laden into the story and expect it to be funny by itself--and did so at the expense of lots of prior text (which wasn't Pulitzer-Prize material either, "used ladders and hippopotamus extract"). HTBFANJS notes that our articles need more than odd, random ideas; they need for them to be related to one another in a funny way. Did you make other edits that got reverted before picking this user name? Spıke ¬ 17:02 12-Apr-13

edit Meh

I just added some stuff here (sorry I wasn't signed in), such as a discography section and a joke about their former band name, and they were deleted. I guess I can see why the discography section was removed, but if you ask me it wasn't any more childish sounding than the rest of the article. Also I don't see what was wrong with the pedophilia joke referring to the name "Sweet Children"

One more thing, I corrected misspellings of Billie Joe and those were also deleted? Is intentionally misspelling something considered funny around here? I'd just like a few reasons. --FrancisHatesYou (talk) 22:20, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for registering! I deleted your edits. As I noted in the Change Summary (call up the article and click on History at the top, I saw one Pedo reference and a discography full of toilet puns. As we note in HTBFANJS, lists tend to be extended forever and also tend to tell the same joke over again.
Spelling stuff correctly is very desirable as it helps us resemble an encyclopedia. However, I just hit the Rollback button rather than try to salvage some of your 5 edits. It would be nice if you would reapply that edit; but if you want me to do so in exchange for my meat-axe approach to your edits, I'll do so.
Drive-by Pedo references are as unwelcome here as editing an article on an actress to add, "She's a slut!" However, if you wanted to invent a detailed explanation of this, and do it in a delicately encyclopedic way, that would be a good thing.
I'll put a formal (though canned) welcome on your user page now, which includes more information about the website. Spıke ¬ 22:33 23-Aug-13

Yeah I know, I saw your change notes. (I may be somewhat new to this particular wiki, but I've been to others before, I know how to use it...) I also skimmed over the beginner's guide and read a lot of the stuff in there before I edited anything.

Okay then, thanks. --FrancisHatesYou (talk) 22:39, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
