Notes for New Arrivals (Noobs)
If I see an article I like, I will leave an encouraging comment. My best advice for noobs is to sit tight and don't get depressed if your first effort doesn't receive universal praise. Also, see if there are other articles on the site that are in need of rewriting (there will be a tag) , a clean bit of editing or just a general move from incoherence to a status where it is readable and makes enough sense. Above all, stay calm and talk to other people here in the same way you would in real life. If you really want to go and have a rant, there are other places where that attitude is positively welcomed. And if you get a ban, serve your time and then come back and see what it was all about. Remember, admins tend to treat all new comers to this site as potential vandals so it is best to create the best impression to avoid that label. And if you do muck up unintentionally and get a ban, create an account on illogicpedia and serve your time doing something useful there.
If your writing muse pops out for a coffee and doesn't come back straight away, I suggest all writers to look around and offer ideas/suggestions to other people who are scribbling away on their computers. From my experience, another voice thrown in can make all the difference and produce a classic...or a dud.

In My Head
- Also over there sometimes under the same user name as here. So if I am strangely quiet or under a ban for bad formatting, see me over there.
- Achilles in the Tent. Contributor who withdraws from active participation but is still around, popping up now and again.
- Aleisterism. The art of staying friends with everyone and making sure your articles appear everywhere.
- Drama stoker. Someone who returns the same subject again and again. Akin to Trollin' but much more specific.
- Filial Pietist. A Contributor who batters others into voting submission to get his or her article featured. See Filial Piety.
- Gresham's Law. Related to the classic economic theory by Thomas Gresham which states "When a government overvalues one type of money and undervalues another, the undervalued money will leave the country or disappear from circulation into hoards, while the overvalued money will flood into circulation. When related to a website, it is when articles like I maed a yucky doody become the standard of featured articles and therefore drive out others who want to write about more challenging subjects. Can be summed up as 'Bad Comedy Drives Out the Good'.
- Junior Uncyclopedia. Attempting to feature an article like this.
- Navalist. Contributor who wants to write only about sea-related issues.
- Navelism. Excessive references to this website in articles. Also Bellybuttonery.
- Navelism by Proxy. Excessively promoting the supposed merits of your articles site via this website with the help of a lot of links.
- Navelist. Contributor who drops in site mentions for no good reason.
- Valley of the Trolls. A website where all standard values of behavior are reversed in the name of 'Lulz'. Also Troll Island.
- Truth Jesuit. A contributor who imagines other people care about what he/she says in a forum or when voting.
- Thespianonics. Drama addicts.
