Welcome to the 10nd Edition of our beloved and prestigious Poo Lit Surprise. Watch your step.
Consult the talk page or me for any questions or concerns. See the Poo Lit Archives for the results from past competitions.

The competition

What is the Poo Lit Surprise?

Poo Lit Surprise Logo

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?

All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few conditions and limitations apply. Judges are barred from entering the competition (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.

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 Vital, Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process, Category:Rewrite, Special:Wantedpages, Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles and/or Inspire an Article to help get ideas.

When is the PLS going to be held?

  • 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 Sycamore)

Where should I put my entry?

The article should be placed on your userspace (i.e. the title should be in the format User:<insert name here>/[article name]). Alternatively, you can skip a step and type the article name below:

User:<insert name here>/

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 {{PLS-WIP}} to your entry.

Trousers or Kilts?

Kilts please.

Shabidoo maxipad Not sure if I did this right. I edited it all a bit before I realised it had to go to my user space. Ive moved what was already edited by me. Not sure if this is an example template or if I am supposed to actually fill this all out. --Shabidoo 23:55, January 18, 2011 (UTC)
