No Voice England
WESTMINSTER, England -- The success of last week's Scottish referendum in provoking more powers for the Scottish Parliament has produced a groundswell in England, which for 300 years has had no parliament except the national one.

These discussions could result in the creation of an English Parliament, leaving the British one to focus on important matters; and an English Queen to reign alongside the British one. Full story»


Braveheart
HOLYROOD, Scotland -- The failure of the Scottish independence vote assured a relieved United Kingdom that it will remain free to work the usual intractable problems rather than confront an entirely new set.

Gordon Brown inspired his fellow Scots with his vision of union: 'There is not a cemetery in Europe that does not have Scots, English, Welsh and Irish lined side by side.' Full story»

SalmondBeastie1
HOGWARTS, Scotland -- There was dancing down the cloisters as top magic school 'Hogwarts' confirmed they had beaten something even more horrible than Lord Voldemort: The Salmond Beastie.

Plans to move Hogwarts to a theme park near London will be 'reviewed' if another Beastie returns. Full story»


Lavainseam
ÞORBJARGARHRAUN, Iceland -- As the eruption of Iceland's Bárðarbunga volcano continues unabated, volcanic gases have triggered public health emergencies across much of the country.

The team's new chemist, an arctic fox carcass named Siggi, whispered, "Keep your head down, the Patriksfirðingar are approaching," while smearing activated carbon from his smashed air filter on his face as war paint. Full story»

New NFL logo
BOSTON, Massachusetts -- The first two weeks of NFL football have seen a rash of injuries — mostly, hyperextended self-righteousness.

NFL stars stand accused of spousal assault, child-beating, letting the SUV engine idle, and failing to take a clean plate on each trip to the buffet. Commissioner Goodell has avoided watching incriminating videos, so as to reactivate players after token lifetime bans. Full story»



Instructions for {{Lead articles}} (Edit them) (Return to the Front Page):

  • arrangePlease use this properly!--Indicates the article's layout on the Front Page:
    • lead One-across (the article in the "1-spot")
    • left Of the pairs of side-by-side articles, the article on the left side
    • right Of the pairs of side-by-side articles, the article on the right side
  • image — The image name (omit File:). There should always be an image, but if you leave this blank, the null image Spacer.gif will be used
UnNewsEXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

Use of "type=" produces graphics like this. Use them only in the 1-Spot. In the side-by-side leads (2- through 5-Spots), these graphics mess up rendering on smaller screens.

  • type
    • Normally none; otherwise, one of the following:
    • breaking for especially timely or time-critical stories
    • special
    • original for stories with {{Original}} instead of real sources
    • exclusive for "exclusive interviews," especially when they are exclusive because we're interviewing ourselves
    • navel-gazing for UnNews articles that revolve around UnNews
    • urgent
    • panic for "PANIC in the SKIES"
    • editorial for stories tagged as UnNews Editorials
    • column for stories tagged as UnNews Columns
    • feature for articles that are featured on the Uncyclopedia main page
  • title — The page name (omit UnNews:); that is, the headline
  • short_titleOptional--If the page name is too long or doesn't look like a headline, provide the desired headline here.
  • summary — The first sentence or two of the story. If you can write a funnier lead by pulling stuff from throughout the story, that would be funnier.

Important notes:

  • If you put vertical space between the calls to {{Lead article}}, comment them out, or space will be output that will throw off the relation between articles.
  • If not using type, set it to none. Just blanking it doesn't work. If not using short_title, turn the whole line into a comment: <!== short_title= -->. To put it back into service, just remove the special characters. Don't remove the lines completely; that makes it harder for the next editor to see the correct form to follow.
