Command & Conquer

Hi I've rewritten the Command & Conquer article quite a while ago. I put up a pee review request and yet nobody has send a review.

Could you help me? I wonder if this article is good enough?

Thanks--ASHPD 08:05, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Sure dude. I will have a look at it tonight when I get home... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:14, Aug 18

It's been 2 days, sir? :( :( :( --ASHPD 10:40, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

Uh, it's been reviewed dude. Or are you just observing the passage of time to pass the time? --UU - natter UU Manhole 10:43, Aug 20
Well I never! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 10:56, Aug 20

*confused*

So is this your talk page, or is that your talk page? *shrugs shoulders*. While I'm here, good job on getting the quick pee idea up, you and anyone else that helped (except for that "Not reviewed yet" thing that looks...not great...). Good job! ―― Sir Heerenveen, KUN [UotM RotM VFH FFS SK CM NS OME™] (talk), 18/08 10:38

Hea, well I was kinda using my page to let people know that I'm moving away from VFD a bit and will be working on getting category rewrite and ideas working a bit better... Yea, spang helped out with the code. I think how I worded the text works well and is a good compromise between what everyone wants. The "not reviewed" thing was Spangs idea. It is handy I guess. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:14, Aug 18
Handy, yes. Aesthetically pleasing...no comment. Very useful though. As for that below, I'd say that leaving the tags up more allows more variety in what people think they can rewrite, thus increasing contributions, but that's just me. ―― Sir Heerenveen, KUN [UotM RotM VFH FFS SK CM NS OME™] (talk), 18/08 13:32
Whoops! Thanks for fixing the t1 thing. Hea, I'm not stuck on the 200 article limit thing. I think it's worth drawing a line somewhere though. 200 appeared to be a good point. So long as an article fits the criteria given on the page for a rewrite, I would be happy to see it in the category. I did leave Wank shame in after all... ;) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 13:57, Aug 18

American Joke

Just checking in here - if that article isn't right for a rewrite tag, what is it right for? I'd rather not nom it for deletion on the grounds that "we have worse", but it needs work, attention, love, or a steamroller. What do you recommend? F Also, I've no idea how Hv could be confused. I'm not confused or anything. Putting talk page stuff on a userpage? Who does stuff like that? --UU - natter UU Manhole 11:00, Aug 18

HeHe... Hea, I knew I would get into trouble for this "rewrite thing"... I thought it might be with you also! lol... Well, if you had not noticed I'm trying to get category rewrite working a bit better. This is one of my new projects now that I'm nominating less on VFD... I managed to get it down to less than 200 (so it fits on the one page) by removing the pages which don't really fit with the requirements of that category.... I'm trying to focus the attention towards the "important" articles and away from fictional subjects, and less notable things. If ya really care about that page in particular, re-add it. It's no biggie, but it's probably on the line as to if it's suitable. I asked ZB about doing this tidy up in general and he was happy for me to do it, but suggested that I swap the {{rewrite}} to {{fix}} on the really bad pages.
The thing is... We have what is it? Um, 23,000 articles or something. Of those probably 20,000 probably "could" use a rewrite of some description. What I'm trying to do with category rewrite is promote those articles which have lots of links to, and are about important things. We could put thousands of articles into category rewrite, but only the firstr 200, would be visible on the first page, and those articles which really should be rewritten would get less attention. If you have a look at what's left in the category now, maybe that makes a bit more sense...
Regarding the specific case of American Joke, at the time I made a call to just leave it be. I don't think it's VFD, and a {{fix}} would also be too harsh, it would probably not be edited and so (maybe) deleted after 30 days. I decided it was best to just let it drift back into the mainspace, and if someone finds it and fixes it great. Like I said, if you really think this is worth a rewrite tag, go re-add it, but I hope you understand what I'm trying to do by trimming the category back. :-) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:14, Aug 18
Hmm. Well, I see your point, and I agree in principle. But... One of the things about maintenance tags is that they can help get people editing articles. When I first discovered this place, and make a few little IP edits before registering, I was nervous about editing articles in general, and felt safer picking ones with a rewrite, fix, expand or whatever tag on it. I figured articles without them were seen as being good as they were, and was loathe to edit them. By removing tags from articles that do need work (and American Joke does need work), we may be reducing the likelihood that people will edit them, and possibly raising the likelihood that people will think it's what we find "acceptable" around here.
Plus, it's difficult, on a humour wiki, to say what articles are "important" - some of our funniest articles are on topics no-one would have ever considered important before they were written. Who knows which article will spark someone to rewrite it into something excellent? Limiting the number of rewrite tags just so the tagged pages fit on one page seems a bit self-defeating to me. One of my first features, good ol' Shopping List was a rewrite, and I found it on the second page of the rewrite category. Just a thought. Can we make more use of the soft/medium/hard rewrite tags? Would that help? I guess we may have to agree to differ on this one - I think the rewrite tag is an important part of helping people feel confident about editing a page, and the number of them shouldn't be limited. Still, c'est la vie! Thanks for the fish puns input, I will get back to that when I have more time. Although the way things are running, that may well be in October, after the honeymoon! --UU - natter UU Manhole 12:34, Aug 18
Hea, like I could ever argue with you! I'm basing my thoughts on the comment at the top of the rewrite category:
"Note: pages are included in this category by adding the {{rewrite}} tag to the page. This tag should only be added to articles that are of general interest, such as famous people, major historical events, major cultural or literary works, etc. Fictional subjects, less notable people, and other articles that should be improved by their original authors should be placed in category:articles to fix or category:cleanup. Violators will be shot on sight.".
Think about it this way... It's a bit like the debate we were having with Pee Review. Some people were taking the view that everyone should review everything, whereas you and I were saying something along the lines of "yea, but there is only so much reviewing effort to go around". I think the same goes for category rewrite. There is only so much rewriting effort to go around, so it's better to focus that if possible. I have also focused it a bit more in the direction of getting people to work on more "encyclopaedic" articles which is another of my wants. Hea, I agree it's impossible to know what titles would produce a funny article, and in cutting it back I may have removed some potentially good ones. I hope though that I have done more good than harm. Please don't take the "I guess we may have to agree to differ on this one" view UU. :-( I would hate that and want to get you on board with what I'm trying to do here. Firstly... I would have left Shopping List with a rewrite if it had one. That's an important enough thing easy. I understand what you are saying about confidence thing in letting people know that it's OK to edit something... Rather than using rewrite on the more obscure articles, how about using one of the many other tags we have which does not include the article in the rewrite category? We have loads of different ones. Maybe we need to make another template or possibly a "less notable things" or "others" category (maybe not!). I'm not sure. I have to dash to a meeting anyway! Chat later! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 13:28, Aug 18
Oh, in-case you did not read what I just said to HV... I'm not stuck on the 200 article limit thing. I think it's worth drawing a line somewhere though. 200 appeared to be a good point. So long as an article fits the criteria given on the page for a rewrite, I would be happy to see it in the category. I did leave Wank shame in after all... The thing is, if someone wants to rewrite an obscure article, they will probably find it and do it. I think rewrite should mostly contain things Codeines mum knows about.  ;) If she is watching... I feel very shameful for leaving Wank shame in the category, and hope you accept my apologies. There are some pages which are probably such a good idea that it's worth breaking the "rules" for. I'm not saying it should be hard and fast. (um? cum on, I'm trying here) ... Obviously people should use their best judgement. I'm just trying to make the category a bit more useful, and stop people thinking... Oh, I would like the article on Bristol Rovers better, but I can't be bothered to re-write it myself, so I will slap a {{rewrite}} on it. I think the Manchester United article is worthy of a rewrite, tag, but not Bristol Rovers. Basically, I'm trying to make the category a bit more useful... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 14:12, Aug 18
I dunno, I only found Shopping List through that category, and others too. I find it a very useful category anyway. And I don't agree on things like Bristol Rovers v Man U. Apart from the fact that, as a good, patriotic Yorkshireman, I'd like to see the article and the club deleted, erased from history, and the ground ploughed with salt so no evil will grow in its stead, I don't think we should be differentiating here - as I say, who knows what will inspire someone to rewrite an article? Just because Codeine's ma may have heard of them, doesn't make it any more likely. I rewrote Scraggle after finding it in that category, and while it'll never get feature, I'd say it's decent enough. We're a humour wiki - noteworthiness alone doesn't define our content, and it shouldn't define what is more or less worthy of a rewrite. Surely the only thing that defines worthiness of that is when someone looks at the article and thinks "yeah, I can make this work!" Those guidelines on the tag are just guidelines, and could feasibly be changed if necessary, after all.
It's not just by browsing the category that people find the articles, and I'd say seeing a rewrite tag on it is more likely to make a few people feel empowered to make it their own. I know it did for me. If there are things people feel we really need, but are particularly in need of attention, there's the colonisation thing for that. I'm not sure yet another maintenance tag is the answer, I can't remember all the ones we have at the moment. And I don't think that leaving articles in need of some form of attention like American Joke in limbo (I found it through Lonely Pages - it's not linked from anywhere, how else will it improve?) Anyway, that's my thoughts. I'll finish by saying I'm not trying to stop your admirable quest to improve so many aspects of this place, just that I'm still not sure I agree with this particular one. And now, back to the daily grind. --UU - natter UU Manhole 14:32, Aug 18
Dam. I hope I'm not pissing you off by going on about this one UU. I respect your opinion very highly as you know, and if you disagree with me, well... Maybe I am wrong. Well, I have re-added the rewrite to American Joke. I was not sure about that one myself, it was borderline, and thinking about it... I was probably wrong to remove it...
With that said, I hope that you will allow me to bounce a few ideas off ya. I TOTALLY agree about the "guidelines" being only that. If someone thinks it's worth a rewrite tag, maybe it is. I think that if Shopping List needs a rewrite it should deff be in the re-write category and also probably Scraggle. Everyone knows what a Scraggle is! The thing is, that if everyone who supports their local football team (such as Bristol Rovers) or random unknown band adds a rewrite tag to that page the category view page would become swamped. OK, I know I said that before! Hear me out! I'm fishing for ideas here...
I do strongly feel that it would be good if people rewrote a bit more rather than creating new articles all the time, and I'm just trying to come up with some ways to try and make that happen. I think that a "more useful" rewrite category might help. Of the articles which I removed many had been sat there for over a year without an edit (in some cases more). Those articles were exclusively about fictional subjects or people I had never heard of (I did a Wikipedia search on them also). Now, it's my view that for these "specialist" articles if someone is going to rewrite them, they will do a search and find the article that way. Being in category rewrite was not helping them. I think it would have been better if those articles had been tagged with something like {{1000 Uncyclopedians}}, {{Funny?}},{{Bat Fuck Insane}}, {{Nigga Please}}, {{Serious}}, {{Stupid}} or {{Unintellectual}}. Those templates let the reader know that it's OK to edit the page as per your "It's not just by browsing the category that people find the articles, and I'd say seeing a rewrite tag on it is more likely to make a few people feel empowered to make it their own" comment. I obviously agree this it's impossible to know what could inspire someone to write a funny article, but given the option I would prefer users working on pages about well known things rather than less well known things. If Codeine's ma has never heard of them, who is going to rewrite it just because it's in the category view? I'm not stuck on the 200 article limit at all. I intend to slap a rewrite on a load more "notable" pages, and that will surely take it well over the 200 mark. I'm still not convincing ya? HV thinks I'm being an arse as well as you! OK, I will nip off and shoot myself... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:30, Aug 18
Just a quick note: I don't think you're being an arse. Healthy discussion is all it is. I would type more, but I'm for an early night - getting up an hour earlier at the moment is so not agreeing with me. To quote Vincent Vega: "fuck - to be continued".

I don't think you're being an arse either. This is like a microcosm of those quality debates in the VD: Both sides want to improve the wiki, but both have different methods of accomplishing that.

ICU Contributions

How do I know when I have made a "significant" contribution to an article? Does fixing up grammar & punctuation plus adding header sections count? And yes, I plan to leave future ICU templates alone for now. Simsilikesims 20:38, 29 August 2008 (UTC)

Fixing up grammar & punctuation alone probably does not count. The simple answer is to check with the person who left the ICU by asking them on their talk page. If they are happy for you to remove it, then it's OK. After seven days without being edited, an admin will make the judgement to delete or not, so there is really not that much point in removing the ICU anyway. If you had added LOADS of great new material, maybe it would be different and you could remove it, but still... Removing ICUs is one of those things which people get a bit "itchy" about when non admins do it, which is why I recommend that you steer clear of doing it under any circumstances at least until you have been around a good while longer... Gerrycheevers added that ICU for good reason. As it was we had to have a VFD vote which is a lot more effort for the community than if the normal process had run its course... Anyways... No harm done. Enjoy. :) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:52, Aug 29

Okay....CRAP!

Thanks for the feedback, and additions to the article. A former UWE student...what are the chances!? I know I'm supposed to make it funny for people who don't know it, but those people annoy me. They require me to think of universally funny content. Like you said "IT'S A UNIVERSITY DAMMIT!"...who else is gonna read it but UWE students?...my target audience. It's not exactly a world famous uni. Anyways, it's my first attempt EVER at comedic writing and I'm staring to realise how difficult it is! Maybe I should just bail out now and congregate on the grass with the Carroll Courtians.

Well, the "IT'S A UNIVERSITY DAMMIT!" line would probably be considered universally funny if you are witting the article from the perspective and using the tone of a student who is defending their university. The "Oh, you mean Bristol Polly" line (I think) also works at a wider level. I'm not sure how many people will know who "Carroll Courtians" are though. You get what I'm saying I'm sure. You can get away with some inside jokes (maybe) if there is enough other generic stuff to make the general public happy. Like you said, it's tricky to make it appeal to the wider group of readers. Who said writing for Uncyc was easy? I read what you did, and I think you can do it though. Ya clearly have a fair bit of writing talent so I think you can manage it. I suggest you maybe consider changing the tone of the article a little to give it a bit more character. Choose an interesting perspective to write from. Maybe pretend the author is a teacher, or the student was thrown out or maybe the student is stoned? Maybe they are pissed off with their exam results? You get the idea... Do something to make this stand about all the other Bollocks we get from students at all the other Unis. I think you can manage it. I will take a look tonight to see what you have done. I EXPECT those papers to be worked on boy! (hehe) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 09:09, Sep 1

Well if you don't mind me saying, you did appear to be talking a rather confrontational stance to some of the other users. Basically all I was saying was that maybe you just need to chill out a bit. I know Uncyc can be frustrating sometimes (believe me, I really do), but if you take the time to get to know some of the guys on here you will find that most of them are actually pretty cool... That dude you were edit waring with for example. He's actually a really good guy. Basically, what I suggest is that the next time you feel frustrated, take a walk away from the computer for a while and come back a bit later when you have had a chance to cool down. Then send the user in question a message on their talk page explaining things. You might be surprised at the response you get... Have fun.

OK... This is the second time you have gotten upset as a result of something not doing that well on VFH? I disagree with everything you just said above. I think you are putting too much weight on the importance of VFH. It's just a vote anyway. You should be writing first and foremost for your own amusement. If others like it, great. If they don't it does not really matter. Actually Skullthumper is (almost always in my view) a very good judge of humour. It's not about humour/humor. That article you submitted was simply not that great (in my view). Some of the other stuff you have written was much better. Your parody of live aid was awesome (in my view).
Listen to the advice UU gave you on your talk page. UU really knows what he is talking about. Self noms are a particularly poor idea. Mainly cos this kinda thing can happen. Probably a good idea to avoid the self noms. Others will do it if they thing it's got a chance. Seriously.
We are (I hope) accepting of n00bs. But you are hardly a n00b now are you? What would you change to make us more accepting of n00bs anyway? Got any specific suggestions?
We have all been kicked in the balls over at VFH. You are not the first. It normally happens when someone does a self nom. Basically... Don't be so silly. You are a good writer, but you're taking it all to seriously. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 08:51, Oct 9

Hea! OK, I read through it... I must say the quality of your writing is steadily improving... I have not seen the show (though obviously I have seen the films) so I'm probably not able to give the best of opinions on the article, but... My reservation would be the references to paedophiles and homosexuals... Hea, I'm all in-favour of using any thing as a source for giggles, but for me the paedophiles and homosexual related stuff did not really make sense. I think it makes it a bit too random, without really adding anything... There are also a few places where you make the same joke once two often. You say the bit about Sarah writing it at the start, but then labour the point again later on. Maybe it does not need that... Generally, I think this would work better if it were a bit more subtle at times also... Take the bit where you talk about Sarah being a paedophile because she is sleeping with a guy who (at that time) was a kid. If you can find a more subtle way to imply this sort of thing, rather than blatantly just saying it, it might work better.... I am REALLY pleased that you have gone for a more standard layout in how you have formatted the article. You are really getting the hang of making a page look like a Wikipedia article. That's the key. It should look like the "real thing" as much as possible. It's then more funny because it's actually really silly. You need the contrast. Which you have created. I probably like this best out of the articles which you have written so far. I did not laugh out loud, but I did feel happy that you had written something which is a really good addition to Uncyc. Nice work dude. I will probably make a few edits to the page over the next few days...

A small request

Thanks for moving some entries from HyperVFD to VFD, as I have been too lazy to do it. However, in the future, could you move them from the bottom of the list instead of the top? I'm only halfway through the alphabet, and if we move them from the top, I run the risk of constantly losing my place.

Also, I really don't mind if you paste in my own delete votes; the timestamps will be weird, but does anyone really care?

Cheers! Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 00:09, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Well, I picked the ones which I was most interested in deleting really. A lot of them which are left are not really used that much and so I'm less bothered about deleting them...

MrN: Well, actually, I don't mind you picking and choosing - just do me a favor and leave the very top one alone :) Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 00:20, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
The benefit is not creating a VFD bypassing page. When you copy and paste your own votes, that's fine. What someone else does that for you, that's not fine. I might seem bureaucratic, but as I said numerous times in the past I have extreme disliking to personal VFD lists that bypass the only official VFD here. So no, I'm afraid that MrN will not be pasting your votes. If you'd like to vote for something, you'll need to do so yourself. ~Jewriken.GIF 00:22, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
Wow, I've thought about that for a minute, and I really can't see any semblance of logic in it at all. But if that's the ruling, that's the ruling. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 00:29, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
The thing is... VFD is VFD. It's the voting page where we vote to delete articles. The nomination is made by the person who makes the actual nomination on the VFD page at that time. When I nominate a page I'm saying "right now I want this deleted". It means that I have checked the article/template just before the nom, and I want it gone. Maybe the template has changed since you added it to your VFD list? Maybe you don't actually want it gone now? You can't be sure. When I had my huge short pages VFD list running there were 4 or 5 other users who made noms from it, but I still made my individual vote each time they did. As Mordillo says, keeping a list which is a waiting room for VFD is one thing, but actual voting should only take place on the VFD page. I do get where you are coming from Hyper, but I think Mordillo is probably right... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 00:33, Nov 15

The site is set-up in a way which favours the Status quo. That is for sure. That's why I suggested this a while back, but although no one actually voted against it, it did not get enough support to go through, so I withdrew the suggestion. The site has changed a lot over the years it's true, and a lot of what used to be accepted content wise in the old days is not now. Still, VFD is probably the best option we have. If a page has survived for years without anyone bothering to make a VFD nom it's probably not that much of a problem anyway. Also... There is nothing stopping you personally removing templates from pages if you think they are not helping. If my understanding of what you are trying to do is correct, then that's kinda what is needed anyway... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 01:08, Nov 15
I like what you're trying to do Hype, and I appreciate your efforts, both on Pee and on VFD. Sorry if you feel there's stuff getting in your way, and if it's putting you off, then I'm right behind you not continuing, if it means you stay doing other stuff - I'd hate to see us lose another user I really like because they felt unappreciated. --UU - natter UU Manhole 09:21, Nov 15

Allow the big bad admin to respond. I'm not giving you hassle, nor am I banning you or throwing red tape over your actions. My perspective is different than yours due to being here a bit longer. I've seen in the past of Uncyclopedia several private deletion lists, some of them endorsed by various admins which lead to mass deletions that were not agreed upon by the wider community. In fact, in the past, you had some admins going on and deleting stuff out of the blue just because you didn't like it. If you look at my articles, the first ever was deleted like that as part of Famine's "Great DeDarthing Expedition of 2006". Also, I'm one of those who feel that deleting old articles en mass drops our own foundation beneath us. AND THAT is why the reason I'm not making it easier on you, or MrN who tried to run a similar deletion process in the past and on others. But you need to differentiate between sticking to the rules on this and giving hassle. I would never restore something that was VFDd nor would I ever ban you for running something on VFD. As for your past bans, to be honest that little trick did warrant a ban - although not a permanent one. And as you might remember you got unbanned quickly after that with literally every second member of this site begging you to come back - including myself. You know well aware that you're respected here (if only due to the amount of awards you get) but hell, you can't always get what you want! Sorry! There are other interests or way of thinking in Uncyclopedia. You can accept this and continue with VFD and I can guranetee that no one will get in your way as long as you don't bypass the normal VFD, or you can drop that and get back to writing - which is what this site is all about in the end of the day. Believe me, I know how hard this place is, wadding in shit up to my knees each and every day for last year I've been an admin. There are good reasons to leave, but this little story, as far as I see it, is not one of them. So let's all give up on the drama and the patting on the head and get back to writing. And if this ever happens, I'll buy you a beer and you can spill it in my face. But only if you're of legal age. ~Jewriken.GIF 10:14, 15 November 2008 (UTC)
My Friend you could never actually seriously upset me. I know you too well by now and appreciate your motives, although in this case I think you may have gotten your words slightly wrong... Your comment at VFD "A general message to all the VFD happy people - deleting these and all the rest of the foundation-like templates, articles and babel pages in Uncyclopedia that has been used for 3 years by numerous people, is dropping our whole wackiness nature." Trying to prejudice the nominations which people make is wrong. You should not do that. People can nominate whatever they want, you should not be telling them how to use VFD. Most of the templates on Hypers list will be deleted, and many of them are old. I'm not sure about the value of calling VFD users "VFD happy". Just a bit patronising don't you think? VFD regulars are there because they care about site quality as a whole. Personally I don't enjoy reading crappy articles, or making VFD noms, but I do it because I love Uncyc, and I want to make it better.
"My perspective is different than yours due to being here a bit longer. I've seen in the past of Uncyclopedia several private deletion lists, some of them endorsed by various admins which lead to mass deletions that were not agreed upon by the wider community" You are talking about ZB and squiggle's list right? Is Hyper suggesting mass deletions? How is any of this relevant to Hypers list or this situation? He suggested people vote on his page a while back, but that's not what we were talking about above. Incidentally, my first article was deleted by ZB 1 day after it was created, with the reason "expired ICU". Is anyone here suggesting we delete stuff "out of the blue" Where does that comment come from? I have no idea what Famine and all his madness has to do with any of this. NXwave flooding UN:POOP? Well, I did not notice any of the admins bothering to undelete all those articles. Some one should have, that's for sure... Several users requested it actually... "or MrN who tried to run a similar deletion process in the past and on others" Are ya suggesting that I did only "try" and was not successful? Actually I spent best part of 6 months slaving my balls off on VFD. My goal was to get rid of the short shit articles. Our standards for accepting new articles are different than they used to be. When I got here there was a huge hypocritical contradiction going on. We deleted new articles saying they were pants, but had hundreds of other articles which were much, much worse. Because VFD is so bureaucratic and slow this process took me 6 months. The vast majority of my nominations were successful, and in general I think more effort in total was required by the community than was actually put in by the original author who wrote the article in the first place. That is wrong. That's why I suggested [1]. This proposal moves the emphasise onto keeping articles rather than deleting them. It could serve has a pre-VFD voting page. The article is put on the "keep" page, and a template put on the article, ANY user can remove the template and the article from the page if they want it kept. Consider reading proposal again. It is (possibly) a better system than VFD, and could be used in tandem with it anyway. I REALLY wish I had been allowed to use this process to help me get rid of all the short pages crap. I did not want to spend 6 months busting my balls on VFD, but I love Uncyc too much, and when I saw just how hypocritically stupid the situation was making us look at the time it made me mad.
You see Mordillo old buddy, that's the thing which people forget about the VFD regulars. Admins talk about "wading through the shit"... Well, that's what VFD voters do all the time. It does upset me a little bit to see VFD users getting given a hard time. Like the guys at pee-review the VFD regs are some of the most self-less users on the site. They get no recognition for their efforts, no one says "Yea that nom you made was REALLY great, here's an award". Their efforts are also not recorded on the wiki. When you write a good article you get the satisfaction of knowing that your article will live on forever on the wiki. VFD voters get nothing of the sort. All they get is the self satisfaction that they have slightly increased the likely hood that when a new user looks at the site they will stick around. You are generally anti-deletionist Mordillo, but you have to remember that if it were not for the VFD regs our site would be totally swamped by all the old 2005-2006 crap, as well as the stuff which slipped through QVFD. That's bad, as crap articles scare away new users.
Basically, what I am saying is that people who don't bother to vote on VFD should think twice before telling people who do how to use the page. If something is good it will be kept, if it's not it will not. I can count the number of times I have disagreed with the result of a VFD vote on one hand (when one of my noms fails I usually see that I was wrong), which is saying something, as I have observed several thousand. The view that people should concentrate on writing and not bother with VFD is questionable. If there was a faster process (like the one I suggested) people would not need to spend so much time on VFD, but because they do the site is better for everyone.
Hyper Yea, I warned you a while back about VFD. Remember? It can grind you down. The man who started VFD gwax eventually found it hard going and quit. Everyone hates you for using VFD, you get no reward and in the end you wonder why you bother. The solution for you personally is to concentrate on writing articles, and doing pee-reviews. You are a dam good writer, and I always thought you were waisted on VFD anyway. Maybe just pop into VFD from time to time, but whatever you do... Don't let it get ya down. ;-) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:49, Nov 15

How do i add my own pictures to an article and add captions?

Harry the Hammer

Hea, you click the "upload images/file" button on the left (in the toolbox). Then you use the format:
[[Image:Example.jpg|thumb|right|250px|Caption goes here!]]

Generally, if you want to know how to do something which you see on another page, view that pages source using the "edit" tab, and copy the text from there. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:54, Nov 15

Stella Artois

Need help making this page less "it suxs ballsy".--Baina 21:40, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

Hea, yea... I read what RAHB said about this over at his talk page... You have fallen into the same trap which I managed to save you from with Monmouth‎. From reading Stella Artois I think... "Well, this could be about anything". Kinda like your Monmouth article was (though it's less so now) in terms of a town. What you need to do is come up with more of a concept for this article. It should be about things which are specific to Stella Artois, and not just a generic article about crap larger. You need inspiration. Firstly... Read Wikipedia:Stella Artois. To write a good funny article about something you need to really know a lot about it. Seriously. You need to be an expert in the subject, and then break your knowledge down to try to figure out what's funny about the thing in question. Those adverts of the French guys coming back from the war has huge scope for example. Basically I think you need to re-think your strategy for witting. You my friend have talent. I noticed that when I decided to help you with Monmouth‎, but ya need to channel that talent in the right direction. Harsh fact: Writing funny stuff is hard work. It's fun, but it can still be hard work... Next step. Have you read HTBFANJS? If you have not, please do so. It's WELL worth a look. I have read it many, many times. It's not perfect, but there is a lot of very useful advice there. If you are serious about becoming a good writer you are going to have to put the effort in. I hope you decide to do that. ;-) Go read the Wikipedia page, and HTBFANJS, then make some edits to Stella Artois in accordance with what you have learnt from reading those two. When you have done that, come back here and let me know, and I will take a look at what you have done. Good luck. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 21:57, Nov 15

Ok, I shall read into the Wikipedia page a bit more and re-read the HTBFANJS page. I think I will do the same with the Monmouth page. Its definately fun working on Uncyclopedia. I used to contribute alot to Wikipedia, but its just full of crazy people and arguements. Definatly much more fun contributing to this. Thanks. --Baina 15:53, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Awesome. Yea, HTBFANJS is really useful. I have read it loads of times, and sometimes go back and read it again when I'm looking for more ideas. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 10:47, Nov 19
