Sophia is gone!

There's no mention of Sophia of the main page anymore! You're all asking to be struck by lightning or something, I tell you!--Anon32 20:37, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Creation

Are you allowed to create any random article?

We prefer funny ones, if possible. If you're not sure, go ahead and create it, and we'll destroy your ego with a "No Redeeming Value" if we don't funny... or if you've broken some un-written rule. Even then, if you just ask an administrator about it, they'll usually let you fix it.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 19:15, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

LOL to president assassanation!

Hilarious new main page. *********** that FBI!--Nelson340 19:21, 22 April 2006 (UTC)

Requesting Serious Help. In my pants.

Also on the article MapleStory.

Maplestory was once a MMORPG, but now I'm "uncycling" it to be a sort of drug. I see some serious potential in this article, with a bit of work. After this, I'm be working on gamefaqs.

Uncyclopedia mentioned in the Times

You should probably put that in somewhere....

Jayau1234

Times? The New York Times? Times magazine? "Times Is on My Side" by the Rolling Stones? Can you link me please? —rc (t) 20:29, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Yes, UnNews would have a field day with it, I'm pretty sure.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 20:35, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
I guessed the London Times, ran a quick search and came up with this: [1] --Hardwick Fundlebuggy 20:51, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Welcome to Uncyclopedia

the content-free encyclopedia that can edit anyone.

I think it would be slightly better than the current tagline --Vagyok 11:55, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

I enthusiastically second the motion. I've always been frustrated by the lack of joke in the second part, and that would work pretty darn well. --Lenoxus 17:27, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Random?

WHY do I get a different page every time I hit the Random button? I mean, there is nothing random about that .. is there? --Dojobo 14:54, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

So, I responded on Dojobo's talk page, but there doesn't seem to be anything there or at his main page. Anyone know whether s/he/it still exists here? --Lenoxus 17:33, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Norwegian version moved

Hi! The Norwegian version has moved from http://ikkepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Hovedside to a new server, at http://www.ikkepedia.net/ ! Could the link under "Uncyclopedia languages" be updated? Thanks! Damsleth 07:50, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

This would affect a few items, some of which need to be changed on every wiki in the project:

AFAIK, the interwiki table here is months out of date and doesn't list zh: no: sv: ar: da: zh-tw: pt: hu: ja: at all (as well as being incorrect for de:). I've raised the issue bug:324 and so far have gotten nowhere. The rest appear to be correct. --Carlb 04:55, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Content-free? Hardly.

With over 18,000 articles now, I'd say that's a stretch. What about fact-free? ~ T. (talk) 13:59, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

It's just a parody of Wikipedia's welcome message, it doesn't matter if we're not actually content-free. Just another misinformation on uncyclopedia :p --Dandin1 20:36, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Underlined links suck!

I use IE and for some reason, all the links on Uncyclopedia are underlined when they haven't been in the past. Wikipedia links in IE aren't underlined and Uncyclopedia links on Firefox aren't underlined either. Is there any way to fix this?

Special:Preferences in [Misc]: Underline links: [Never ] --Splaka 04:52, 14 May 2006 (UTC)
Wow, how did I not notice that? I guess I was just looking at the check boxes. Thanks!

-JBob 20:58, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Yahoos!

nice :) --Nerd42eMailTalkUnMetaWPediah2g2 15:35, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

Rhinocerous

Now before you understand this you will have to look on gasp wikipedia for the Rhinocerous Party of Canada which was truly uncyclopedian so I think it may be funny to create an article on Uncyclopedia which gives them completely sensible platforms remember you will have to know what they were to get this so please tell me if you think it is stupid. Jamhaw 20:26, 24 May 2006 (UTC)jamhaw

We have fr:Parti Rhinocéros but it does little more than list their actual platform. Useful mostly as a link target from other pages attacking Martin, Harper and company. --Carlb 05:06, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

HUncyclopedia

We started an Hungarian unciklopédia. please update interwikis: hu:Kezdőlap [2]. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 80.98.54.71 (talk • contribs) May 26

Out of our hands, unfortunately; already reported as bug:324 but no response so far. Interwiki table on en:Uncyclopedia is running two to three months out of date, so zh: and everything added after it (ie. about half the project, not just unciklo.pedia.ws) is missing.

Current status (did we forget Poland?) for interlanguage links to other Uncyclopedias from this server is:

--Carlb 05:25, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Recently born ?

as to oppose the 'recent deaths' could contain one name picked from somewhere or an estimated number on recent births.84.230.240.128 07:03, 29 May 2006 (UTC)

Yes, that's a great idea. Where would it go on the main page (or elsewhere)?--Lenoxus 17:36, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

Around here? It wouldn´t be ¨recently born¨ but ¨born yesterday¨. --Carlb 03:54, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

ad template

"template:Zh-hant/偽基正體中文和偽基香港語" is an advertisement, please delete it. --KaurJmeb 14:03, 1 June 2006 (UTC) --KaurJmeb 03:20, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

This issue has been moved to Forum:Babel Babel Babel#Taiwan and the Red China menace. *sigh* --Carlb 05:39, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Satanopedia? What an anticlimax!

Wasn't it all a little obvious?--Mrasdfghjkl 02:07, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

It had to happen... just for the Hell of it? --Carlb 03:54, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
I know, but they shoulda dedicated it to the Rebuplican party or Canada.--Mrasdfghjkl 05:32, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Oh, but Hell isn't Canada. Hell is a warm place... --Carlb 05:53, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Also, the Republican headquarters are already Hell, what more do you want? --Kalir, Novice Burninator (offer instruction) 07:50, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
That was point. Subtle Irony.--Mrasdfghjkl 11:21, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
So what wouldn't have been obvious? I think it was a pretty spendid reskin job. --Lenoxus 15:38, 6 June 2006 (UTC)
Carebear-o-pedia wouldn't have been obvious. However, I like Satan-o-pedia better.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 15:41, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

"1222 - Mary has a little lamb". The reporting of acts of infantilia bestiality has no place on this fine website. 80.229.161.131 01:36, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Personally, I thought the reskin was CRAP. It looked rushed and messy. Could we, when doing this sort of thing, please do a bit of pee review? I liked the concept, I hated the execution --The Rt. Hon. BarryC Icons-flag-gb MUN (Symposium!) Sigh. Double Sigh. 12:08, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Seriously...

Shouldn't there be a truly serious disclaimer or something like that. I know, I know, you would have to be a complete idiot to believe that this stuff is real, but it's just not right to not put up a disclaimer on a site like this. Besides, if Arnold Schwarzenegger, for example, sees his article, Uncyclopedia (as well as Wikia) will be in (ahem) trouble.

Wrong. Arnold Schawarzenface cant do shit to the uncyclopedia, neither can anyone else, so i dont see any need for a disclaimer.

What has happen?

This Wikipedia seem not so good no more. it use to be about truth, but now seem to be full of junk. what happen? why no good anymore more? please forgive my english sir, but I am worry about wikipedia losing it, how you say, prestige. please return to way use to be.

This is Uncyclopedia. Wikipedia is here. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 08:44, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
Wow, that is classic! How did everybody miss this?-- Tinymooose.gif » Sir Savethemooses Grand Commanding Officer ... holla atcha boy» 00:49, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

I need help

I have no idea how to upload pictures into an article--Heckler 89 18:09, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

All you need is the correct tool. I will let you look around and discover where that tool is hidden. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 19:02, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
I think Famine means: look at the left sidebar, behind the title "toolbox" and click "upload picture"---Asteroid B612B612 (aka Rataube) - Ñ 22:12, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

Reskin

Possible reskin, for Medievalpedia. Mainly made by Uncyclopedian.

  • Not only is it Early Modern English when it should be Middel Anglish, it's bad EM English too! ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 04:54, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Pretty much fixed this. Will continue to chaucer-fy the page. If there are any experts on the subject, please help, as I am a complete stranger to this tongue. --The Rt. Hon. BarryC Icons-flag-gb MUN (Symposium!) Sigh. Double Sigh. 20:57, 2 July 2006 (UTC)
I've decided it'd be better in Old English, and if you read it out load it sounds similar to modern english. I'll revert if it turns out too bad though. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 18:40, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
Also, I think it should be saved until Old English is featured (might be a looooong time). ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 18:50, 4 July 2006 (UTC)
Just to know, I changes it to the correct language code. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 19:14, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

The Medievalpedia should not be in Anglisc, switch it to modern English or change the name. The joke has pretty much been killed... might as well finish the switch. --KATIE!! 20:49, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Printable Version / Uncyclopedia Reader

  • The "printable version" links do nothing for me. Is that mechanism broken (I tried it in FF and IE)?
  • Are there plans for an Uncyclopedia Reader with featured articles? I'd buy it instantly.
    • Abbreviate my name correctly, please, Captain Nemo. - Fx 09:35, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

Did Canada invent Bacon?

--Mrasdfghjkl 04:33, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

No, but it DID invent crazy, round, ham-like bacon. Drenched in Maple Syrup... mmm-mm, breakfast of champions.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 04:51, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

No. Despite rumours to the contrary, Kevin Bacon did not invent Canada. -- Wicked sig cScott (talklog) KUN PIE NS FP 04:55, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Can Jews eat Kevin Bacon?--Mrasdfghjkl 06:36, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
I seriously thought that all red text would be a red link. That would have been great.--Emmzee 13:05, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Thats not funny. --Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 20:05, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Hungarian Uncic

Hungarian Unciclopedia started, and it is so good [3]. Please update interwiki links. 80.98.54.134 18:50, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

page tilal

I fond a way to chang the color of the tilal of the main page the code is blow {| style="position:absolute; top:0px; width:40%; padding-bottom:20px; background:#F8FCFF; color:#888888;" valign="middle" |- |<h1 style="margin:0; border-bottom:0; color:blue;">{{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}} <!--| User:AmiDaniel=AmiDaniel's Userpage | User talk:AmiDaniel=AmiDaniel's Talk {{NAMESPACE}}:{{PAGENAME}}---> |} <!--Shamelessly ripped from User:PathosChild by User:Avillia.---> <!--Avillia's sleeping: [[Image:Nuvola apps kblackbox.png|37px|left]]--> it chang it to blue.Page Vandal</nowiki>

Grue

No offense, but that article was pretty dumb. I'm not sure why it was chosen for the main page. Something I've noticed is that articles seem too be evaluated too much based on their images and not enough on their texual content. Perhaps it's just me.--Conrad Devonshire Talk 20:31, 12 July 2006 (UTC)

Compared to many other featured articles, this article is quite good. --Testicles 00:07, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
For what it's worth, I agree with you, Conrad. I don't read every featured article, but of the ones I have read in recent history, this is probably the worst. But the voters have spoken. —rc (t) 00:39, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
That's right...democracy...but I think Grue was funny anyway... --Icons-flag-us SonicChao Babbel!Contribs 20:19, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

looks familiar

<douchebag>omg wtf. you guys fucking suck donkey balls UnNews is just a cheap fucking ripp off of the The Onion. you guys suck cock. </douchebag>

Oh, we're sorry. We didn't realize that The Onion had a patent on satire. Our mistake, we will delete the entirity of UnNews immediately. - Nonymous 12:12, 18 July 2006 (UTC)

Regarding the Wikipedia look....

A question. You guys have nailed the wikipedia 'look' and functionality perfectly. For a project I'm doing, I was wondering if there was some sort of wiki-script you had on tap that I could easily rip-off to create the same effect for a project I'm doing. If not, where would you advise that I look?

Your Pal, -68.34.219.79

Try the scripts at this page, in conjunction with your favorite hacked css sheet to make it look perfect. Should be just what you need. Bone_F_clear.png Sir Famine, Gun Petition » 14:47, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Thank you kind sir.

Your Childhood friend, -68.34.219.79

Wales also admits to being a regular at Uncyclopedia, an encyclopedia of misinformation that parodies Wikipedia. Rounding out his bookmark collection is YouTube, the viral-video page, which has its very own Wikipedia entry, like almost all of Wales’s favorite sites (BBC, Flickr, Lawrence Lessig, and Leo). But then again, so does Jimmy Wales. --GrigorIII 13:33, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes, actually I would... In case you haven't heard, he now pwns us. Kinda. Well, he doesn't own us at all, really... But you should check the Village Dump once in a while. Or just his contributions for more info... Whichever. --⇔ Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU F@H|NS|+S 13:43, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Orphaned subpages ?

Just cleaning out the Orphaned pages and I'm not sure where, if any place, Main Page/Gamma and Main Page Beta should go. MadMax 00:57, 29 July 2006 (UTC)

typo

On the sentence about l33t on "Did you know", the word "service" in "Postal Service" has no V, so it looks like "Serice".

Don't click here

Hey, why is your cursor slowly crawling towards that link?? (slaps cursor) Keep it away from there. Now. --Chomu 23:52, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

Tubes

you see, the internet is a series of tubes. It is not a dump truck on which you can just dump things. Hence the need for discretion with respect to what ought to be placed in said tubes.
