Any good usergroup page needs a discussion page. Also on a serious note, you havent offered us a usebox. Userboxes are good advertising if nothing else. Go make a userbox. ~Orian57~ Icons-flag-gb ~Talk~ Gay sign 22:13 18 May 2009

What she said. If you need me to, I can make it. I've made at least 5 or more userboxes already (see my page). You'ld have to supply a pic though. And if I got a point for it, that would be cool too.

edit Two points I'd like you to keep in mind

First, please be careful with slapping various maintenance tags around. And second, I'm not sure what's the intention of "liquidation of memes?" ~Jewriken.GIF 22:43, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

This is somebody who is completely out of the know, but I took it to mean the removal of unnecessary memes — that is, any meme thrown into an article for the sake of "filling" it (which is most of them) — to be replaced with funny, relevant, original jokes in their stead. I assume that the exception would be articles that are written about a particular meme or ones that use a meme as a specific narrative device. User:KneeChee27/sig2 23:51, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
That's what's troubling me, memes could be good, and I don't really want to see another quoticide/chuckicide/whatevercide going along. Guildy? Mind responding to that? ~Jewriken.GIF 07:16, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
Mitch Hedberg. It's almost like 4chan threw up on a single page of Uncyc. But yeah, take a look at that and then you'll know what Guildy means by "liquidation of memes." Jackofspades (talk) 05:59, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I'd like him to respond to that. ~Jewriken.GIF 06:35, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Basically what Knee [anti-Communist sign] Chee said. The removal of unnecessary memes. Articles on memes can stay, I suppose, but things like Mitch Hedberg the unnecessary 4chan horseshit must DIE. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 13:57, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Just be careful not to start a system wide extinction crusades without talking to one of the admins. Thanks. ~Jewriken.GIF 15:25, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

I wouldn't use it, since my userspace is reserved for album or song names. --SoIwastolazytolearnGermanic.jpg-kun "whisper sweet nothings into thine ear..." 00:15, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
I threw together some vector-based versions of the logo (here and here) so that we can easily Photoshop them into anything we need. User:KneeChee27/sig2 00:25, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

edit Der Unwehr uber alles

Personally, I liked the usage of "jugend" since that resembled the small article that needed to be nurtured. But I don't care either way.

Some notes: the introduction seems a bit overlong to me, some of the joke (don't forget "ruthless efficiency") intended by the image of the rewriting group could be put into the first section following the introduction, in a more "in-depth" description of the group's intentions. Going with the military theme, are images (presuming they'll be added) going to be depicted as such? As for the "dibs", I'd really rather not have to say I'm "reserving" something that anyone can edit anyway. In the same vein, I wouldn't use any "this article has been targeted by Der Unwehr" templates or as such. Just so you know.

Well, I'm going to start my first rewrite already. Also, I presume all rewrites done before joining the group are not to be added to the list? I think it's fair not to, since that means anyone can take advantage of the incentive intended by the group. --SoIwastolazytolearnGermanic.jpg-kun "whisper sweet nothings into thine ear..." 00:14, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I think the military theme works best as a sort of foil to IC, which is what I'd like this group to be to an extent. And, although short, I think the description of the group's intentions works just fine. I also agree with you in not having gratuitous templates. The one that Cheddar made suffices, and I'm thinking of having Sonje (or whomever wants to) make an award-ish template for every rank above Brigadegeneral. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:00, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

edit One thing(s)

Is there going to be any imperative to put things on VFD or QVFD? I think that having a table with successful deletions made by each member would encourage that, but still keep the main focus of rewriting stuff. Jackofspades (talk) 03:45, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I think that would be the absolute opposite of what the group means to do. In the same way that a PEE reviewer can't just nominate an article for deletion, no matter how bad s/he said the article was in the review. Besides, I hate seeing articles deleted. --SoIwastolazytolearnGermanic.jpg-kun "whisper sweet nothings into thine ear..." 08:51, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
same here Icons-flag-it.png Don 15px-AAN.jpg20px-Oberst.jpg Puttano cHeDDs 15px-Jenny_Spy_Revised_Again.jpg 19px-Leprechaun_army.jpg 15px-TMMAN.jpeg 20px-Missmurder.jpeg 15px-SCBBQGPOS.jpg SBQ2 19:10,19May,2009
Yeah. I mean, ideally, there wouldn't be a need to delete any articles (vanity and the like excluded), because somebody would have taken the time to make it humo(u)rous in the first place. User:KneeChee27/sig2 20:03, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
I concur. I talked to Saberwolf, who is the VFD master, about him possibly taking the role of "Chief of the Uncycpo." Instead of just VFD every shitty article he comes across, I asked him if he could slap a rewrite tag on stuff that has rewrite potential, like Alternative Rock and Bob Marley. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:02, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
Hmm...well, i'll think about it guildy, but I think putting stuff on VFD and having it deleted isn't that bad. Usually, if a notable subject is deleted, it's recreated- sometimes it's just better to start with a clean slate. But I suppose I will help you. You have to make a custom template for me, though ;) Saberwolf116 22:05, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

edit The speech

After "just kidding" you could write (whistles, boos, not a few rotten vegetables) -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 04:42, 19 May 2009 (UTC)

I joined, and take this opportunity to, once more, tell the troops I'll co-write much rather than work alone. Not interested in rank but bouncing ideas back and forth with people. Anyone interested, leave a message on my talk page. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 04:47, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
That's what the IC is for Icons-flag-it.png Don 15px-AAN.jpg20px-Oberst.jpg Puttano cHeDDs 15px-Jenny_Spy_Revised_Again.jpg 19px-Leprechaun_army.jpg 15px-TMMAN.jpeg 20px-Missmurder.jpeg 15px-SCBBQGPOS.jpg SBQ2 19:11,19May,2009
I certainly don't discourage collaboration, I just don't encourage giant, massive group collaborations that take two-and-a-half weeks to write one fucking article, which is basically what IC champions. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:03, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

edit The membership chart

Please respect it. As in, when you first join, your thing should say "[your name]/0/Soldat," and nothing else. I'm fixing the chart accordingly. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:06, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

edit I am...

...working on my first rewrite (Akira Kurosawa), for those of you that care. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 18:56, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Just finished the second rewrite: Peyton Manning. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 02:19, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Does it count if you're rewriting your own article? Icons-flag-it.png Don 15px-AAN.jpg20px-Oberst.jpg Puttano cHeDDs 15px-Jenny_Spy_Revised_Again.jpg 19px-Leprechaun_army.jpg 15px-TMMAN.jpeg 20px-Missmurder.jpeg 15px-SCBBQGPOS.jpg SBQ2 02:54,26May,2009
It depends. If it's exactly how you left it and you rewrite it, you get no credit. However, if your shitty article has been totally butchered by IPs or something, and is totally different from your original shitty version, then you'd get credit as normal because it's no longer "your article," per se. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 03:11, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

edit Emblems

Der Unwehr needs something to make it distinctively Uncyclopedian. Like puzzle potatoes on the Der Unwehr flag. Necropaxx (T) {~} 02:35, Jun 4

I agree. By the way, looking over this Der Unwehr thing, I'm changing my mind about it. I thought it was nazi-ish at first, but... well, it is, but it's good.   Le Cejak <22:09 Jun 12, 2009>

edit A polite request

I would appreciate it if you changed the name and mood of this organization of yours. I like what you've done for the site, but I don't appreciate all of the blatant homages to Nazi Germany. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 19:19, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

I heard that. ~Jewriken.GIF 22:07, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't think it seems Nazi-ish. Just German in general. People just link Germany to Nazism. It's not like they're saying "Kill the jewish articles."

Yes, notice why I said "homages" and not "statements." If you want it to be German, then you could perhaps restructure it to reflect modern day Germany, old Prussia, or the Weimar Republic. Right now you've got subliminal Nazi Germany down to a T: the colors, the flag, and even the "Crush the Communists!" --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 19:25, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes. One is a broken cross and the other is a cross. Same colour scheme, though. Throw some green on that baby. Also, throw in a baby. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 19:37, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

The whole "Furher" thing that Guildenstern boldly parades around in his sig is a bit of a giveaway too. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 22:05, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

OK, so, yes, I understand that not everyone is a fan of the whole Nazi look to Der Unwehr, but it's not done in seriousness, mind you all, it's a parody just like anything else on this site. The title of UnFuehrer that I "boldly parade around" is a pun of sorts. At worst it can be interpreted as "Uncyclopedia Leader," and at best "Un-Leader," so there. The military ranks used are no worse than the ones that IC uses, and all the other titles have no Nazi analog at all. So there. The group's emblem is an Iron Cross, which may seem a bit Nazi-ish until you realize it predates the Nazis by several hundred years. In regards to the question of changing templates etc., they're all made, and I for one think Cheddar did a fuckin' awesome job, and I'm not about to ask him to redo everything because someone's overly-tender disposition has been offended by something that is clearly a parody. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 13:24, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

edit Why should I become a member?

DU+BANG
Actually, that's a bogus question, as the answer is on the main page. I just needed an excuse to write on here, which as I've just pointed out that that is a bogus question, that screws up that excuse.

Where is Rosencrantzencrantz? Is he dead?

Having said that however I was out shopping recently and came across these in my local shopping centre chemist. I thought you might appreciate them. (Iron cross, red cross, what's the difference Pup t 23:34, 20/07/2009really?)

edit Articles already completed before you joined

I'm just wondering if articles that you wrote before you joined can count towards the victory count. Because I wrote articles for Selling coal to Newcastle and Alien abduction insurance just yesterday and today after seeing them on the requested articles page, but I didn't join this group until just now. So yeah, just wondering. Sequence 14:25, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

They can count, absolutely. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 15:59, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Actually I won't bother. The two that I have in my history are amongst my earliest and probably in need of a re-write themselves.    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 15:55 11 August 2009

edit Another Kwick Kwestion...

When we are rewriting articles, are we allowed to write something about the subject material, but under a different name, and then redirect the original article to the new page? For example, I am going to rewrite Bowling, but have a good idea for an UnBooks about the subject Matter. Is that okay?

edit Carnies

Checked on your story at Pee Review. I don't think it works. Ok I understand what you have done but suggest the historical background doesn't really add anything to the article as it stands. That could be at best abbreviated. I would have concentrated more on what Carnies do today and the idea of you getting ripped off for $4 a bottle of water...--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 01:06, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

edit Some suggestions

User:MrCleveland left me a message about needing some help with two articles he's created, F-Troop and Mork and Mindy. I've listed them on UN:COLLAB but thought I'd inform Der Unwehr to see if anyone was interested in looking them over. MadMax 14:04, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

edit A bit of a refocus

Been thinking a teeny bit about DU... I've been looking at the list of vital pages, and there's a fair few redlinks and a fair few of those that aren't redlinks are... well, frankly, crap. I'm thinking that a DU week where people get bonus points for either writing one of those articles or rewriting a bad one. Something like a Vitality week? What do you think? Pup 22:22, 9/02/2010
