edit The meet our staff template is a bit big and ugly. Not as ugly as SysRq though

What do you think about moving it into a subpage? It takes loads of space and it's not that relevant to the everyday work you do here. ~Jewriken.GIF 16:50, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Well personally I think it is helpful to give everyone a perspective of who is really contributing here. It may be big, but it shows who is here to help out. I see it more as that than a board showing points. I personally don't see the worth in doing this for points as they don't really do anything for you except change your initials...which also don't do anything. So I would say keep it. But that is my perspective, and I am sure mine is not what you came for. ~SirTagstitVFHNotMPEEINGCPTRotMBFF 16:58, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
might we be able to move it to a subpage but still link to it, similar to the review list on User:Cajek/Pee? SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 17:02, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah sorry, that was the intention - leave a big ass link on the page with the whole board on a subpage. ~Jewriken.GIF 17:06, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
Oh that sounds good. ~SirTagstitVFHNotMPEEINGCPTRotMBFF 17:08, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

edit Eh guys

What's up? Is Colonization dead again? Wikipedia has been up now for, what - three weeks? ~Jewriken.GIF 21:23, 18 May 2009 (UTC)

edit FU Spang, err...Mordillo

Okay, so I've been giving the IC process a bit of a think (constipation=plenty of time for Uncyc) and I've come to believe the timeline we try to follow are as unrealistic as I feared they would be. All of us have lives outside Uncyc, and the collaboration process is inherrantly inheirantly ierrantly automatically slower than writing an article by yourself. So, since Sys and Gerry have buggered off, I'm taking it upon myself to suggest the following changes to the default IC schedule.

  • First off: We're gonna finish Wikipedia. It may be coming along slow, but I think it's coming along in the right direction nonetheless. One more week for everybody to fill it out and polish it off, then I'm putting it on PEE Review and we're moving on.
  • After that: Two weeks writing->PEE Review->one week writing->done.

If we have enough colonizers we start splitting into two articles at a time.

My suggestion: Work on every colonization in the same subpage. That way I can watchlist it and be reminded to work on it any time someone edits it. As is it's too hard to keep track of where all the shit goes down. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 01:52, May 24
Yep, a realistic deadline is better than one that we just keep missing. Using same subpage is a pretty decent idea. We'd lose the change list if we just copy and past the article across, but that's not really needed, since the final work is going to be perfect and will never need to be changed again, ever! Would certainly be easier to track, and we wouldn't even need to visit the project page to know what we're working on. --Concernedresident 08:44, 24 May 2009 (UTC)
What about the front page notice? Should we keep it even though it's there for ages pointing at the same article? ~Jewriken.GIF 09:14, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

One subpage for all. Yup, I like it. We'll start doing it that way with the next colonization. As far as the main page notice, I say we just change the text to "Current colonization" and leave it at that. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN14:45, 24 May

oh, and maybe make the mainpage notice more attractive, you know, add some bling and shiney golden gods Colour Sig For Make Mahm00shA Look Cool Egypt_orb_spinning.gif 17:21 May 24 '09

i like this schedule. we can, of course, improvise as we roll along if need be, but a 2 week deadline seems to be the best thing to aim for. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 15:58, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Plus, and I guess I didn't make this clear originally, if the PEE review warrants it, we take another week to make the suggested changes. If it's a favorable PEE and we don't feel the need to take the third week, we just move on. Sound fair? -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN16:01, 12 Jun
sounds good, as long as we do it on a case-to-case basis. we can always come back to the colonized article as individual editors after the fact, but a good week of pee review assisted editing would serve excellently in some cases. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 16:24, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

edit Attention Colonizers

From now on we will be doing all our colonizing on one convenient page. Put it on your watchlists. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN18:01, 30 May

Excuse me, but what is Singapore? All I know about it is that its where zheliel lives. What are we gonna write about it? How many colonizers know anything about it? Shit, nobody even voted.. Give us a couple of days to nom and vote. Colour Sig For Make Mahm00shA Look Cool Egypt_orb_spinning.gif 18:05 May 30 '09
Nope, time's up. Y'all had four weeks to vote while we worked on Wikipedia. None of ya did, so we're doing Singapore. Guess you'll have to do a little work for this one. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN18:23, 30 May

edit A possible project for the future?

A promising article, Let me just say one thing..., was started recently but the author has appartently run out of ideas. It mght be something to consider for the next nomination. MadMax 23:31, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

<opinion> I think it contradicts our civility policy. I also think it might be better off thrown toward DU+Bang as it's first person narrative so would work better as an individual writing as opposed to group collab. </opinion> Pup t 00:42, 29/07/2009

edit Every Empire Ends

And with good reason.

As a long time reader of the grossly politically-incorrect, blasphemous and acid witted satire that is Uncyclopedia, let me just say that your 'mission' to 'cleanse' (a term those familiar with genocide and ethnic-cleansing will be familiar with) is going to harm Uncyclopedia and possibly be a contributing factor to the death of this site. Uncyclopedia is a bastion of free-speech and has never been afraid to satirise anyone or any topic. Stereotypes, nations, religions, concepts, ideology, history, the environment, etc. are all targets. Most of the articles are extremely clever and extremely humourous - do not embark on a CRUSADE like moral puritans who, through their extreme misguidance, destroy something that they never understood in the first place.

The anarchical nature of Uncyclopedia has in the past allowed for individuals to harmoniously work together, without the need for a union which will inevitably succumb to the will of a narcissistic 'leader', if it has not already, either blatantly or discretely.

Freedom is always compromised in an empire. Shame on you all.

So far the only thing I've seen IC get rid of is poorly written shite that is a small step up from Pokemon rape, but to each their own. Pup t 14:04, 29/07/2009
such rumblings from the lower class will not be tolerated! listen not, ye colonizers! SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 15:06, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
Yea and verily, Oh great and powerful leader! By the way, you spelt colonisers wrong.Pup t 21:03, 29/07/2009
No, you speeled colonizers rong. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN21:06, 29 Jul
Eye spill cheque aviary think eye dew! Sew fork yew!Pup t 21:13, 29/07/2009
User is totally correct. If we keep going this way, some Uncyclopedia users may become more and more powerful. One day they might invent an extremely high level for themselves called Admin and give themselves the power to huff articles and block users! Whoa! DAP Dame Pleb Com.
