Today's page sucks. That is all. --[[User:Ekashp|Ekashp]] 04:37, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

:Thank you for your constructive criticism. Is there a particular aspect of it that "sucks," in particular?--{{User:Bradaphraser/sig}} 13:35, 8 April 2007 (UTC)
  +
::Sure - just about all of it. The idea, while good, is better placed on [[Fox News]], or perhaps [[UnNews:Main Page|UnNews]] than the main page. While I see where the idea was going, I believe it flopped. The sudden change in site design, while comical in certain circumstances, annoys me more than provides for humor. Perhaps its just my natural disdain for anything related to the idiots at Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, BBC, and every other "mass news media" station, but this Main page does not work for me. Keep in mind that not only am I just one user, but there are a lot of viewers who are not registered / could not be bothered to find the Talk page. --[[User:Ekashp|Ekashp]] 20:25, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

::I think you mean "home". --{{User:Starnestommy/sig1}} 19:58, 8 April 2007 (UTC)

I liked it. The fact that unregistered users wouldn't know what the site is about would be the only reason I would criticize a reskin. I hate FOX news too, but the idea was making fun of FOX news. --{{User:RAHB/sig}} 20:20, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Maybe next year, the entire page should just redirect to wikipedia, and everybody's like WTF for the day, half of them not realizing it's April Fool's Day. That would be kind of funny, and is probably what you just said but I was too stupid to realize. -- {{User:RAHB/sig}} 04:25, 2 April 2007 (UTC)

Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but how come the "fi" interwiki link from the English uncyclopedia still links to the abandoned Finnish Hikipedia?
