Uncyclopedia talk:Order of Uncyclopedia

Damn man. This is fantastic. I bow once again to your magnificance. --Famine 22:06, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Dang skippy. I also figured out how to put stuff after my username in sigs by copying Elvis. The bloke really is quite invaluable. --Sir Rcmurphy CUN 22:20, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Are ROUNs anything like ROUSs?--Flammable 20:41, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I guess they are something lik ROUSs --Sir Elvis KUN | Talk 21:15, 3 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Since I created the Writer of the Month award, technically shouldn't I be a Duke or something? --Savethemooses 23:50, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Oh god Uncyclopedia peerages as well, Ahhhhhh --Sir Elvis KUN | Petition 11:50, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

editUncyclopedia Namespace

I think this is important enough to be moved to the Uncyclopedia namespace. I already moved my Order of Uncyclopedia/Simple charts to Uncyclopedia:Awards, Decorations and Honours. just an idea--Insertwackynamehere CUN 01:50, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

edit I have a question

what exactly is the hmrfra awarded for? and also do regular Commanders (CUN) use the "Sir" prefix also or do they just use "CUN" postfix?--Insertwackynamehere CUN 02:10, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC) EDIT: also, Sir Elvis, the fact the Sir comes before the user seems to break uncyclopedias recognition that its a user page, just so you know :P

Just fixed it now, lost all the history but not to major --Sir Elvis KUN | Petition 10:10, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
cool :) maybe it would be better to format everything User:prefix name postfix, instead? also just through this together Order_of_Uncyclopedia/Simple_charts#User_Page_Name do you think that works?--Insertwackynamehere CUN 13:47, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Dang nibits. I just read the article and found that only the two highest ranks are knights. I'm not a knight so I can't have "Sir." I'm so depressed right now. --Rcmurphy CUN 02:29, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Well, at least you got a CUN.T hat's better than what I got... --Famine 02:45, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Darnit :( Maybe Sir Elvis could change that to the three highest ranks... (hint hint) also instead of using <font size=smaller> you should use <small> Basing everything on Elvis, the sig format should be as follows: [[User:<name>|<prefix> <name>]] <small>[[Order_of_Uncyclopedia#<anchor two specific order>|<postfix>]]</small> mine looks as follows: --Insertwackynamehere CUN 02:38, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Odd. <font size=smaller> and <small> both look right to me in Opera, but <font size=smaller> looks like normal-sized text in Firefox. --Rcmurphy CUN 04:47, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Elvis and I had a row about fonts in Template_talk:Wilde. How they render is a direct function of what browser you view them in, and what settings you have. See our beautiful screen shots there if you're bored. --Famine 04:43, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

• Re: HMRFRA is awarded to members of military units that have performed conscious acts of mediocrity or Civil Servants in liue of a Carriage Clock. (it was just an amusing award to replace the British Empire Medal from the OBE that I sporked from).
• Mega Deletion Award now also gives promotion to KUN.
• Nothing to stop you awarding yourself a Knight Bachelorhood and calling yourself Sir :-)
• I am now slightly scared of the beast I created.

--Sir Elvis KUN | Petition 10:31, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

editPrimary writer?

How do we determine Primary writer, is it the OA, or the greatest contributor?--Flammable OUN 16:56, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Bit of both really, the wiki system (obviously) dosn't lend itself to picking one person over another, if in doubt I've added more than one, if you think you have been missed off by all means give yourself a promotion! --Sir Elvis KUN | Petition 17:00, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

edit charts

Order of Uncyclopedia/Simple charts made this page for quicker lookness ;) --Insertwackynamehere CUN 03:32, 4 Aug 2005 (UTC)

moved to Uncyclopedia:Awards, Decorations and Honours--Insertwackynamehere CUN 01:48, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

edit Limited to 12?

The top rank is limited to 12 people, but what happens when more then 12 writer of the months awards are given out? Rangeley 23:06, 17 Oct 2005 (UTC)

heh elvis will have to confirm this but I'm pretty sure those "limits" are just sarcastic and part of the original (pre-sporked) article from Wikipedia --Insertwackynamehere | Talk 00:07, 18 Oct 2005 (UTC)

edit The Order

Hi! I'm a n00b Uncyclopedian, a Wikipedian :), and a minor conspirator and a major anti-conspirator in the Grand Conspiracy Theory. How do you get into the order and move up in rank? If nobody answers my questions I can and will send legions of spork-wielding squirrels wearing pickelhaubes to eat you. Muahahahaaa! Filmcom 15:15, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

You're a Member of the Order just by registering on Uncyc. You can put {{MOOU}} or {{MUN}} on your userpage now. To gain rank you need to win awards for great writing, helpful maintenance or some other cool thing. The criteria for each rank are on the main Order page. --—rc (t) 15:25, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Thanks for the help! Hehe, I've already created 5 articles (I keep having to update that number :–)), so if anyone wants to nominate me for noob of the month, I'll gladly accept!:) Filmcom 15:35, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
One more question: do you have to become and Officer to become a Commader, or can you skip from Member to Commander? Filmcom 20:08, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Nope technicaly you could go staright into a commander of knigh commander without even being made an MUN(if you were an IP user who won an award)--The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM F@H (Petition) 20:34, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
So I don't have to become an Admin to be able to move up in rank? --User:Filmcom/sig 20:42, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Nope. Many of the higher-ranked users are admins, but a couple of our Knights Grand Cross and many members of other ranks are regular users. --—rc (t) 02:09, 3 March 2006 (UTC)
Cool! --User:Filmcom/sig 03:13, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

editInternational Flavour

I've uploaded and added a few flag icons in front of people's names. I thought it might be fun to see the diversity of contributors in the Order. More matching flags are available free from:

~ T. (talk) 17:07, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

How would I put a USA flag in front of my name? Filmcom 18:06, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Look at the code I used to do it in the first section (GUN). ~ T. (talk) 18:31, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Oh! Okay, I guess I should have asked if I could make it so that the flag shows up every time I sign something without having to type it in? Filmcom 20:01, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
See your talk page. My FAQ has the full explanation of what I did. ~ T. (talk) 20:21, 2 March 2006 (UTC)
Have a look at mine....and replace the flag part with the US one..... --
Thanks Todd! --User:Filmcom/sig 21:45, 2 March 2006 (UTC)

edit PotM

Shouldn't PotM count for something? Like, even GUN? -- §. | WotM | PLS | T | C | A 21:44, 28 December 2006 (UTC)

Haha. Okay. I see your point. It should be protected so no one else does this too.SteveSims 23:00, 26 May 2007 (UTC)

edit Limits?

I just noticed that it says in the intro that the GUN and KUN ranks are limited to 20 members each. If that's the case, then why does each rank clearly have more than 20 members? Also, I find it cool to see that once upon a time, even the current admins didn't have fancy signatures. P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon (Tick Tock) (Contribs) 23:20, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

Back when Elvis wrote the guidelines I don't think anyone thought Uncyc would get this popular or that the awards system would still exist in any recognizable form two years later. In conclusion: as with so many other things at Uncyclpedia, ignore the rules. —rc (t) 01:08, 27 June 2007 (UTC)

editUmm...

Is Grand Master kind of like Grand Dragon? Or more like the Pope? (Which would make Oscar Wilde Jesus, I suppose.) --CUN RA Talk to me _ 22:18, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

We have no Grand Master, we have a Knight/Dame Grand Cross. It is very much like the Grand Dragon/Wizard, though. WHITE POWER!For the record, I'm not a racist, I'm just joking around. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon (Tick Tock) (Contribs) 22:39, Oct 28
Your wrong Led. Chronarion is Grand Master, the rest of us, the highest rank is GUN--Sir Manforman 22:52, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

editnoob wishing to join

I have little idea as to how the order works. can anyone tell me how to join?

~ NEZLR 21:16, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Win something. To become a CUN, you can get an article featured, get an image featured, win NotM, or win RotM. I think there may be some other awards that can get you in as a CUN, but I can't remember. ~Minitrue Sir GUNWotMRotMAotMVFHSKPEEINGHPBFF @ 23:04 May 18

So, if my currently nominated image (the iceberg one) were to win the vote, i can add CUN to my signature and become a member? sweet.

edit Banninated?

Sorry to post in here, but I have a problem. The front page is all messed up, and it has a note saying:

"Your user name or IP address has been blocked by The Right Honourable Famine.

You were banninated due to the following reasons:

Sockpuppeteering, and excessive throwing of hissy fits - sentenced to one week to become sane again, JeffArch. If that's possible."

I must state that I have not thrown a hissy fit or sockpuppeted (I don't see even how I could do that as an anonymous user [explain!]76.185.146.49 14:38, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

edit Primary writers of featured articles???

 “ Winners of Noob of the Month, the Primary writers of Featured Articles, the artists of Featured Images, the winners of Article Narrator of the Month, the winners of the Reviewer of the Month and the winners of the Emmanuel Goldstein Award of Excellence in the Distribution of Misinformation are made Commander of the Order. ”

What the fuck does that mean? That you have gotten at least one featured article? That you're in the Hall of Shame? Can I get some clarification? MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 22:30, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

It means this: $x FA = CUN$ with $x \ge 1$ 01:19, 31 January 2010
