most of this article is plagiarised. cannot remember the source, but i recall seeing this in about 1985.

You're right, it is stoeled. --Sir ENeGMA (talk) GUN WotM PLS 01:25, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Personally, I can't recall anything I saw in 1985 - but the bits I writ came out of my own brain and no one else's. --Sir Hardwick Fundlebuggy - (Ring for service) 05:48, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
Oh, no I'm not accusing you of any impropriety, please don't think that. I'm accusing the original "author" of plagiarism, not you or any of the later writers. Sorry for any misunderstanding. --Sir ENeGMA (talk) GUN WotM PLS 20:12, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Hey guys, I recently made a new article but I'm not too familiar with Uncyclopedia process and whether its even worthy for inclusion. Could someone please look at it and give me their comments? --Draicone 09:09, 5 September 2006 (UTC)

Well, it's worthy for inclusion. If you want it VFH'd, I can suggest a few things:
  • Pictures, pictures, pictures. Loot other Uncyclopedia articles if you have to.
  • More about the test itself: Who gives it and why, maybe testimonials from those who have taken it.
  • The "IQ under 70" joke, is OK, but a bit silly. No harm in describing the test for what it is; the truth is a good springboard for jokes.
For all that, this article is very promising, and the questions are excellent. Good start.--Procopius 14:23, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I've got rid of the under 70 bit and put in the real 145+. I'll see if I can put some testimonials in or something, and get a photo of a red telephone. --Draicone make the mistake of talking to mewaste your time on another menial exercise 06:26, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Being Mensa, it needs some sort of silly hard math question - "Calculate the Square Root of Pi. Show your work; use both sides of the provided 8X10 piece of paper, if necessary."--Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:57, 5 September 2006 (UTC)
It sort of isn't MENSA, I just needed some way of explaining what the hell it was and decided to pick on MENSA. However, now that MENSA's been chosen as the victim I suppose a sqrt(pi()) is appropriate. --Draicone make the mistake of talking to mewaste your time on another menial exercise 06:26, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
I like the "Give 3 egs" bit! GREAT. Aaadddaaammm 10:20, 6 September 2006 (UTC)
I wanted to add a bit of complexity to the whole thing. Glad you liked it. --Draicone make the mistake of talking to mewaste your time on another menial exercise 08:51, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Great idea, nicely done so far - could do with some expansion in various directions. Try a satirical inversion - e.g.: You have before you a carton of milk, and no cutting materials, try opening the milk in under five minutes without spilling any. I might add some stuff too. Also use images of scientists and graphs etc... --Sir Hardwick Fundlebuggy (Bleat) 09:20, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
