==The competition==

<big>Runner up: [[User:Nikau/Dag Hammarskjöld|Dag Hammarskjöld]] by {{U|Nikau}}</big>
===What is the Poo Lit Surprise?===
 
[[image:Poo Lit Surprise Logo.png|130px|right]]
 
A writing competition held on Uncyclopedia for a small cash prize. It is designed to jump-start writing quality at Uncyclopedia. After the previous eight competitions, a significant number of featured articles for the following month(s) were from the PLS, and it could be argued that the overall quality of featured articles increased.
 
   
===Who can enter and what are the rules?===
+
Honorable third place shared by {{u|SPIKE|Spike}} with [[Lava lamp]] and {{u|Gerrycheevers}} with [[User:Gerrycheevers/tornado|tornado]]
All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few conditions and limitations apply. Judges are barred from entering the competition ([[User:Sycamore/PLS/Scoring|see here]] for the list of judges). Non-noobs (people who've been here longer than 3 months) cannot enter the "Best Article By a Noob" category, and noobs are not restricted to the "Best Article By a Noob" category. A checkuser will be run to ensure that no supposed "noobs" are sockpuppets of existing users. Sockpuppet accounts will be disqualified and banned.
 
   
You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one article per category per person). An article may only be entered in one category, and it must fit within the requirements of a particular category. You may not change three words and the title of an article to make it eligible for another category; such behavior will result in both articles being disqualified. Additionally, in previous competitions, collaborations were permitted. However, due to a lack of collaboration submissions and complicating rules, collaborations are no longer permitted.
+
===Best Rewrite===
   
Articles created prior to the competition cannot be submitted. Also, no plagiarism. Should we discover your work is not original, you will be disqualified. Using resources such as the [[Reefer Desk]], [[Image Request]], or [[Pee Review]] is forbidden. Users may, however, use [[User:Isra1337/vital|Vital]], [[Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process]], [[:Category:Rewrite]], [[Special:Wantedpages]], [[Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles]] and/or [[User:Jocke Pirat/Inspire|Inspire an Article]] to help get ''ideas''.
+
[[Image:Poo Lit Surprise Logo.png|35px]] <big> '''Grand Champion for Best ReWrite: [[Brick]] by {{u|SPIKE|Spike}}''' </big>
   
===When is the PLS going to be held? ===
+
<big>Runner up: {{u|ScottPat}} with [[User:ScottPat/Politics|Politics]] </big>
*From January 18th ― January 31st, entries will be accepted.
 
*'''From Febuary 1st ― Febuary 7th, entries will be locked and judged.'''
 
*From Febuary 7th ― Febuary 13th, winners will be announced, articles will be moved into the mainspace, and all entries will be unlocked.
 
*Febuary 14th ― we will all go play Shinty.
 
''(n.b.: all times are to be measured by UTC, and all phases of the contest end at midnight on the specified day; entries may be accepted at the discretion of {{U|Sycamore}})''
 
   
===Where should I put my entry?===
+
Honorable third place mention for {{u|Nikau}} with [[Jizzlam]]
The article should be placed on your userspace (i.e. the title should be in the format User:{{USERNAME}}/[article name]). Alternatively, you can skip a step and type the article name below:
 
{| style="background: inherit;"
 
| style="font-weight: bold; background: inherit;"|User:{{USERNAME}}/
 
| style="background: inherit;"|<createbox>
 
prefix=Special:MyPage/
 
</createbox>
 
|}
 
Between January 18h ― January 31st, you should post a link to your article in the entry section below and sign as you would a forum post or vote.
 
   
If you're a paranoid, or afflicted with OCD, or just want to tell people to shove off until after the PLS, add {{tl|PLS-WIP}} to your entry.
+
No entries for Best Collaboration in this competition.
   
===Trousers or Kilts?===
+
==Awards by default (only one entry)==
[[Kilts]] please.
