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. Unless your sockpuppet is BENSON of course.

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 May 10th ― May 23rd, entries will be accepted.
  • From May 24th ― June 6th, entries will be locked and judged.
  • From June 7th ― June 13th, winners will be announced, articles will be moved into the mainspace, and all entries will be unlocked.
  • June 14th ― we will all get on with our lives.

(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 late only under extraordinary conditions)

Where should I put my entry?

The article should be placed on your namespace (i.e. the title should be in the format User:[username here]/[article name here]). Between May 10th ― May 23rd, 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.

Boxers or briefs?

Thongs.
