Whatever docks your goat

Yo are you online now? pleeeze meat me in chat, I have some ideas about our marriage. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 10:39, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Nuting, I went and wrote what I had. I think next stop is Empire State Building, where he should for instance regret that the Dubai Mall isn't ready yet - and then head towards Himalaya. I think then it's time for the storm bit in the aeroplane. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 11:15, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Ah hah! Very much dig the new paragraph. Alright, I'll add some through the day, this is coming out very nicely. I wonder what we should do with the woman. Part of me says the logical idea is to eventually include her in the plot, possibly make her the one who hears his gibberish words as she falls off the building, but I also think it would be very funny to just see her one more time and then never think anything else of it, making the final woman someone different entirely. Let me know what you think on that, I realize every time you bring her into the story I unintentionally manage to completely throw her out of the situation. -RAHB 17:06, December 9, 2009 (UTC)


Hey you! Yeah you, ya big tucky you!

After being reliably informend that you had both deleted my page on Park village, and were born to a mother with both sets of reproductive organs, I was immediatly outraged! Why?! Why?!

Why didn't I break your legs?! The preceding unsigned comment was added by 213.120.19.220 (talk • contribs)

Oh, and the ICU tag expired. -RAHB 04:19, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

ARITE

What if we don't take the protagonist back to the heights after the NYC dump bit but just have a caterpillar accidentally crush the chick under? What if she were just about to shoot our hero when, deus ex machina, the caterpillar smashes her and the final words of the riddle are lost amidst the gurgling and the... what are those things the 'pillars run on? Chains? -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 07:51, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good to me..I don't know what it is they run on, but...yeah, sounds good. -RAHB 21:25, December 10, 2009 (UTC)
Let me know if/when/how you're back, and shall we finish the piece before Christmas? It's pretty ready, I'd say it's about 1 hour from each of us and done. Then I have another project I suppose you might be interested in if you have time, a long one. Chat me some day. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 07:12, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
I've been having some major issues with my wireless card lately, but I still fully intend to finish this before Christmas. As for another project, after Christmas I plan to be taking a break from Uncyc until at least late March, so unfortunately that's not going to be a possibility. But I'd gladly work with you again in the future if we're both still around at that point. In the meantime, I'll chat you in IRC tomorrow (it's currently 3 am Tuesday morning here, so whenever it is that I wake up I suppose) about finishing this up. Sorry for my absence lately. -RAHB 11:10, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah no problem. The project I mentioned will probably be still on in March so let's chat about that then too. I'll check chat every now and then, too lazy to try and calculate erogenous time zones. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 13:50, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks

for the epic reformat e.e --XcaptainXobliviousX 16:20, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

Hey, any time. Your userpage tells me your a Zappa fan (with the template I created :) ), that makes you monumentally cool. That's unrelated to the reformat, but, you know, what does relevance have to do with anything? -RAHB 07:38, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
Relevance has something to do with something, if you ask me - but it doesn't necessarily have anything to do with something else. If "something else" can be anything, then relevance doesn't necessarily have anything to do with it. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 09:37, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
but if we're to consider the fact that anything else has to be something, (otherwise it would cease to be anything else at all) doesn't it make sense to conclude that relevance always has something to do with anything else?--XcaptainXobliviousX 13:22, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure that's relevant to the discussion. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 13:28, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
But of course it isn't. Though, surely, it must relevant to anything else. xP --XcaptainXobliviousX 14:14, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
How can I argue with that? -RAHB 22:41, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

I have a question RE: VFD

No, its not about me, rather about an article that was voted on, all for delete, then according to the VFD archive that it still exists (blue link, not red and not silver locked). The article in question is Persistence, and the relevant VFD archive page containing the vote is here: http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Uncyclopedia:Pages_for_deletion/archive196#Persistence --TrekCaptain 00:43, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

I'll just answer that as if I were RAHB. The page was deleted, then replaced with a redirect to a better article. The link is blue because something (the redirect) is there. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 00:39, December 14, 2009 (UTC)

Sir!

I'm basically done with the site about now. Please let me know soonest if you want to finish our baby with me - it's a good article so far and I would really hate to leave it when it's almost finished. I would like to have it done soon though, since it will be my last as far as I can see. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 16:10, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

I hope you'll get out OK

I hope you'll be OK whatever it turns out to be. I will leave the ending for you, is that cool? Do that when you can, and I'll add some finishing strokes to it if it seems to need any. Oh yeah - the afterword. m. I'll write that too, and you do what you want with it then. I think I'll also postpone this a few days. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 19:14, December 23, 2009 (UTC)

Much appreciated, I'll certainly do what I can, pending my doctor's visit within the hour. Thanks. -RAHB 21:19, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
I'll be on the article on the... I think 27th. See you around, best of luck! -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 21:40, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
I'm happy to announce that whatever I experienced the other night was just a series of coincidences, highlighted by panic and placebo. After tonight's Christmas festivities I'll be celebrating my good health tomorrow by relaxing and filling in my part of the story, and hell, if I'm feeling festive maybe I'll get some salvia and spark it up. Who knows what's possible in the world of tomorrow! -RAHB 21:29, December 24, 2009 (UTC)
I don't know what this was all about and it's none of my business anyway, but am glad you're OK. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 21:10, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

I know you probably check this stuff anyway, but just as a courtesy this. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 21:12, December 25, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, excellent. I haven't read it yet, but I'm so glad somebody finally rewrote the old peace of trash I've had sitting there for 2 years. I'll be sure to give it a read tonight and cast my vote accordingly. -RAHB 03:35, December 26, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I know...

A little late again, but I dunno, I thought this might interest you.

Who Monitors the Monitors?


In this case, PuppyOnTheRadio monitored monitor. Still, you did a lot of work creating the original, so this award goes to you with my congratulations. (Also if you happen to log on soon, could you fix the problem with the proofreading I didn't do until after Monitor was marked to be featured which is described here? Thanks.) WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 21:26, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

Oh, no not at all man, that rewrite and my original version are two incredibly different articles, and mine sucked ostrich eggs. I can't take any credit for the feature. As far as the proofreading, I'll be perfectly honest when I say that I'm already pretty much on vacation from Uncyc (which will officially start in about five days). So I probably won't do that either. But thanks for thinking of me. Happy new decade, and the like. -RAHB 08:53, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
I hope your vacation is great--and short. Some of us like you being here (some of us are weird). WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 17:41, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
That's a very nice thing to say. You are, of course, weird, but I've always seen that as a good thing. I'll be back in late March/early April if things pan out the way they're planned right now, but it could be longer. Either way, I'll probably check back every now and then. -RAHB 12:35, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Where you go?

And who told you to go there? ~Jewriken.GIF 22:19, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Florida my friend, the land of the old and the young. THINKER and I are going to be doing a lot of work for our outside projects during the next couple of months so I'm taking a break from most things. I left my cock in a jar on the kitchen counter though. So you'll have something to remember me by until I return. -RAHB 04:05, January 3, 2010 (UTC)
Is that the chrome one or the midnight blue one? Also, tell THINKER not to corrupt your gentle soul, I want you back in one piece! ~Jewriken.GIF 09:55, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
It's the spun glass one with the color-changing marble. As far as my soul I think I'm okay, it's my liver that's going to be taking a beating. -RAHB 01:35, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

Want an account

Rahb, will you create me a Wikia account so I have more Uncyc and other wiki access. The reason I'm not creating them on my own is because I'm visually impaired and can not enter the Captcha text. I want my: user name: star651 email field blank password: tensucks month: 1 date: 10 year: 1997 Ready for my account. Maybe after I mess around with the new account, you could make me an sysop/admin like you, and my deletion and ban chances will be lower. 68.42.246.27 03:06, January 23, 2010 (UTC)

I could absolutely do that for you. The only issue here is, Wikia and Uncyclopedia actually have separate userbases (or something). So do you want a Wikia account, or an Uncyclopedia account, because you can't access one with the other. Alternatively I could just make both for you. Let me know. I'm leaving this message on both your talk page and mine in case you don't see it, since it's been a couple of days (I'm actually rather inactive, which is irrelevant to this moment anyways). -RAHB 11:24, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Hea RAHB dude. The above smells a bit of a certain Teletubbies and Disney obsessed user IMO. Anyway, just to give you the heads up... Hope all is well with you and your penis. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 11:37, Jan 24
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. But I figure I'll be objective for now and if he repeats himself, we can block him, and then have evidence of one of his scheme-types so we don't fall for it in the future. Unless we already fell for it. If that's the case then BAN BAN BAN. But if not, no harm in whatever's potentially going on. Which reminds me, if he does actually respond to me, you take care of it. Because I'm going to be drunk or something probably. My penis is fine, and THINKER's is even better. How are you and your pants going? Weren't you on a sabbatical recently? -RAHB 11:41, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Cool. Yea, I figured you had had probably noticed. Don't think it's been done before, but I will keep an eye on it. As for my sabbatical, yea... It took me a while to break out from Guantanamo after being rumbled in that Pants Bomber incident. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 11:47, Jan 24
Excellent. Well if you're staying around, we definitely need you here, because I've technically left, as I'm staying with THINKER in Florida, writing full time, if you somehow didn't know. So please take my place, and I hand over to you the golden penis, the symbol of all that is phallic in adminship. -RAHB 12:00, January 24, 2010 (UTC)
Well tis a great honour you offer but I fear that I do not posses anything like the necessary prowess required to wield the mighty golden penis of Osirus RAHB. Tell you what. When TinkyGay comes back, I will store it up his ass for safe keeping until you and Thinker fancy getting more involved with things here again. Until then, I will miss you. Take care. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:08, Jan 24

Say, are you really writing full time? You mean like getting paid to do it? Is that possible? (Seriously, congrats!) WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:11, January 25, 2010 (UTC)
We're not getting paid at the moment, no, but that is the eventual goal. But currently since THINKER is already paying the rent I'm devoting most of my time to sleeping and writing, with the occasional part-time job interview. Once we get a portfolio and such together, we'll see about this whole "paid writing" myth the conspiracy theorists talk about. -RAHB 00:47, January 26, 2010 (UTC)

Splitting the Vote

I just saw your comment about not doing half votes at Uncyclopedia:Writer of the Year. I must confess I'm probably the one who started that. I gave a half vote to each of two candidates for NotM a month or three ago on the justification that if IPs get half a vote, I as a registered user should get two half a votes. It's come back to haunt me, as I'm now getting a 3/4 vote and a 15/16th vote for UotM. So if you would give me a good whipping and post a note on UotM letting them know it's not recommended to do that, I would appreciate it. And if you don't want to post a note, at least give me a good whipping. Pretty please? WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:07, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

AAN boxes

I've noticed that on the Uncyclopedia:AAN/Adopters page, the "Admin?" box is really wide but has very few words in it and the "On Uncyclopedia" is narrow but has more words than any other box. It makes the table unnaturally long and it takes much longer to scroll through. Do you think the widths of those two boxes should be switched? WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 03:24, March 2, 2010 (UTC)

If you can find out how to edit the widths on that template, I implore you to give that a try. Seems like a good idea to me. -RAHB 19:54, March 4, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the nomination! I was a little unsure about whether or not I wanted to be or would be any good as an admin during the last VFS - and my god, was that really a year ago - but after four years of Uncyclopedia and a year as a poopsmith, I feel more up to the task now.

I must admit I'm not sure I follow the concept 100%. What I can tell from it though sounds very intriguing. Is it sort of a formal joining thing, or can anyone just participate? -RAHB 09:35, April 3, 2010 (UTC)
Anyone can participate, no rules except that it naturally looks better if the direction (pro-against) of the article looks sensible inside the framework. (If you come up with a funny slip to get an extra laugh, I see no problem with that. It just means the Summit of Spin has fucked up.) My idea is this: it is a sort of an office that has imaginary clients, like real world media offices have. If you find any piece of news in the real world (anything at all, but product- or service-related are easiest) that could harm a client the office has (or makes up on the spot), you launch a campaign against the product, service, or entity portrayed in the newspiece. Clearest real-world example is, of course, how any news of global warming harms oil companies and such. Oil companies start propaganda attacks trying to prove the warming is not happening. Then others reply to those attacks and this goes on until everyone's fed up. Summit of Spin does the same, but with anything that comes up. Idea is to parody the practice of spinning and make it look absurd. Mechanism runs something like this:
  • create a client, based on anything you find in the real world, so that the client absurdly runs against something that's being done, or is otherwise happening
  • create or find facts that support the client's point of view; sporkage in real or imaginary sources
  • write an UnNews article for the client, preferably so that you can already link it to another, mainspace article that has stuff supporting your client's point of view. If something is ready - like probably is - use that, or write your own. Or link to different articles on different points, of course. Anything can be used if it happens to fit.
  • you or someone else writes an article, at some point, that sensibly or absurdly goes against what you have written
  • you retort, using any argument off the top of your head, twisting facts the way you deem necessary
  • and so on, until the subject is exhausted

That does sound interesting. It seems to me that it would be hard to make multiple spins all that original though, when compared back to one another, since they're all going by that basic concept. Then again, I'm sure it would all pan out well, with the right writers working on it. I probably won't be able to do anything for it for a while, since I'm really still pretty busy in the real world and haven't had a whole lot of time for Uncyclopedia lately. But I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the project. -RAHB 15:20, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
Great, good to have you on it. Well, only the structure will be similar at the start. I'm sure writers will find ways to make the serials different enough. The choice of subject alone guarantees a lot of diversity, and also the path to victory doesn't need to be all similar. Lots of room for surprise witnesses and experts, stuff like that. Like I suggest, a transcript of a trial is a good way too. That, in turn, will lead into several attempts at discrediting the opponent on both sides, and so forth. Some articles will have solid grounds for argument, others will be total nonsense. You get the pitcher. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 17:26, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
Excellent. Well then, I'll see what I can scrape together the next time I get some time out. Good luck with it all. -RAHB 23:48, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
