What Uncyclopedia is not

Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia full of misinformation and utter lies.

  • Now you know it.
  • We are not Wikipedia, as we don't like duplicating stuff.
  • Our mission is not to provide the world's misinformation but rather - to do it in the least redeeming and most searingly sarcastic and humourous way possible.
  • We are not a dumping ground for propaganda (unless, it is funny), humourless nonsense, people you don't like, ideologies you want to trash, opinion, or flames.

How do I be funny?

Good writing is subjective, but there are some basic rules which can help you make your articles cleverer (even if they are clever already). Put time into your work, learn and hopefully your work will get better and better.

How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid


How can I be stylish?

Learning the code here is easy. What is harder is making an article pretty. For this you have to know how to play with images, headers, text, links and tricks and stuff.

What can I do?

Tired of writing articles or simply don't know what to do? Uncyclopedia has tons of different activities.

What you can do


How can I make people like me?

The best way is to be civil and polite (and helpful, if you offer help). Here, good writers are respected more than bad politicians, even though it may be exactly the opposite everywhere else.

You might be rude and not even know it!
