edit UnNews

Hey Spike, I know you were once the UnNews editor, and now I am but not because I asked for it at all. I like it, though, but the one thing I really don't like is userspacing articles, while trying to be diplomatic with users, which I think I do well. It is also kind of time-consuming since there are a lot of UnNews being written as of now, and I am kind of a maniac about it being checked daily. Would you be opened to split the "work" in 2? We could ask each other for a second opinion on everything, from the managment of templates to userspacing articles. I know you don't know me much, just ask about me to admins on IRC if you want further details on me. It is a very serious offer, I think there is work for 2 there, especially since there is so often a need for a second opinion. Merry Christmas! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 14:06, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

edit Thanks for SPIKING my changes...

... as well as my reply to that, without saying a word in response. You're one hell of a debater, aren't you? Have fun deleting this post; you'll have won the argument yet again! Stumbo (talk) 04:13, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

That may have been a mistake by Spike but I saw your comment as well in the history of this page. Not called for. User page discussions are usually kept UNLESS it's out and out abuse and even then a user may prefer to keep the comments (ref to my own talk page discussion with Tasmania on this matter). Now what article are you talking about Stumbo? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 08:07, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
The article is Brave New World.
I'm not claiming that my additions were the funniest stuff since sliced bread, but what was "not called for" was deleting them with an insulting comment ("listcruft"). Each one of my jokes, such as they were, actually made sense; so, while I of course can't insist that they must remain, I'd like for that decision to be a bit better-justified.
Stumbo (talk) 09:07, March 7, 2012 (UTC)
Looking at the list in the history and cross referencing with the source material I would agree it isn't listcruft as I how I understand it. All the characters mentioned to do appear in the book (or ones with names close to it). A real listcruft' would include nonsense names like Jesus, Your Mom, Chuck Norris etc. Still, saying all this Stumbo I would have suggested you had been a bit less confrontational and asked politely why Spike chose to revert your lines. Many writers (including me) have had their stuff reverted by an author who disagreed with which way an article is going under another's hand. Normally my policy is to check who has worked on it before you found it or if it is brand new article, approach the author and ask for their views. If you don't agree then you can always ask another's opinion . No one has any need to reach for verbal baseball (or cricket) bats. That can happen later but you will be both asked to step outside and fight it out in the street. Give us enough time to alert the CCTV operators. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:29, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

Sir. Brave New World is written like an encyclopedia article that plays fast and loose with the truth. Your appendix is a list. I called it crufty because the list elements are cheap puns on a character's name, each followed by a wisecrack. It is indistinguishable from a common form of vandalism in which a young reader reads a paragraph and types in his clever personal reaction to the text. The italic text is especially ugly. It is not up to the rest of the article, so I deleted it.

When you asked for clarification on my archive page from last year, coded a cryptic link to it on this page, and then deleted it, I assumed it was more vandalism, did not remember who you were--it being a month since I reverted your edits to Brave New World--and rolled it back without reading it.

edit Brian Scalabrine on VFD

Howdy, Mr. SPIKE Person!...I was just wondering if you have any advice for Brian Scalabrine. I realize it ain't killingly funny, but I've been suffering from some killer word-cramp for the past few months, and this is the first time in quite a while I've actually been able to make myself laugh. I saw your article on Delonte West, and I was wondering if you've got any advice on tying this puppy up in a neat bow. For instance, I've been trying to work in his fan nickname (White Mamba), but it's so mind-numbingly dumb that even mocking it dumps a bucket of cold water on the the Funny. Any thoughts? ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Apr 9 '12 10:38 (UTC)

No, Scalabrine no longer being a Celtic, I will not be aware of new stuff on him (nor on West!) with which to crack wise. You seem to be doing fine, and I dump it in your lap. Spıke ¬ 11:34 9-Apr-12
PS--I liked v2 of the photo more than v3: More obviously a shoop, more implicit drama. Spıke ¬ 11:41 9-Apr-12
Yeah, but I dislike obvious image manipulations, and this is really the effect I was going for in the first place. I mean, in his Wikipedia picture, he looks like somebody stuck his cat in a hydraulic press, forced him to come to work, and then paid a photographer $20 bucks to ask him "Hey, Brian! Why the long face?" See...it's a visual gag. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Apr 9 '12 12:39 (UTC)
Hey - I know I nommed an article you both like for deletion, but I don't think I deserve to be tied in a bow.                               Puppy's talk page12:29 09 Apr

Hang on - was that meant to be a wanker who edit conflicts, or an edit of a conflicting wanker? How do you have conflict in wanking?                               Puppy's talk page12:47 09 Apr

edit Québec

At first I was like: WHO DARES EDIT THE GLORIOUS QUEBEC ARTICLE???...But then I was like: hmm, it's actually better, I should go and thank him! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 22:40, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you! Just tightening up the wording a little. I trust the reason you moved the photo of the pretty girls away from where they are discussed is that you are running with the standard fonts and it might have been cramped on your screen. There are a couple other sections I might also tighten up. A separate problem is that pieces of the page take positions rather than crack wise (stealing land from the Indians is bad, Quebecers agree with Trudeau) but I leave the solution of that to you. Spıke ¬ 00:37 8-May-12

By all means do it! Tweak it all you want, if I disagree, I'll just revert and send you a message why I thought it's better my way. But remember this is my home country and the article I am most proud of, I moved the pic only since I didn't want text to be sandwiched between 2 pics, but maybe that moved a pic related to the text a little bit too far down.... I'm opened to your input, of course, and if you have input on how UnNews is managed globally, I'd be more than hppy to listen to you. Very frankly. I don't know how you stumbled on Quebec, but WE WILL NEVER REST UNTIL GLORIOUS SOVEREIGNTY IS ACHIEVED!!! LOL Snowflake mini Mattsnow 00:59, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

I feel the same way about New Hampshire, although if we became independent we would flop between socialism and crony-mercantilism faster than any South American nation. Given your invitation, I will play with the initial quotes. Regarding UnNews, I have no problem with the way you are running it, nor desire to share the load; my former attempt to manage things globally attracted drama approaching vendetta, summarized in the last section of my user page. I once tried to e-mail you about your UnNews invitation. Spıke ¬ 01:09 8-May-12

E-mail thing: really? I am very ashamed to say I maybe flushed it along with the stuff I receive from the French Uncy. I would of course answered it. Sorry, I thought you were really shunning any form of communication. Try again, so I'll know it is you even if it winds up in my spam box for some stupid reason. I opened the option in "my preferences" and it should work. I knew there was a problem and you were banned and managing UnNews, but that is all. I don't like drama, I'm trying my best to steer clear of it. My UnNews philosophy is that as long as I give it 6/10, it is worthy of the front page, since I think a New Unnews a day keeps the doctor away. I userspaced a lot of UnNews a month or so ago, but since then, I think they are all worthy! That is really where I'd need a second opinion. Sorry for being TL;DR, but I think it is important. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 01:39, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

Just saw your recent edit on Quebec, I have no words... You rock! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 01:49, May 8, 2012 (UTC)


I am pretty much done with this. Thank you for not going to the Forum and opening a vote that I be banned for it (as it seems lately that "no good deed goes unpunished"). The only pieces I have not touched are the remote cities I've never been to, and Section 4, which does nothing but flog a few old stereotypes without much new cleverness. I would delete that; also Chibougamau, as it's trite to deal with a place by proposing that it might not exist. (We did not need my new section on Sherbrooke, but I noticed that Uncyclopedia has a main article on it.) In my opinion, what are now the two final paragraphs don't do anything except end the article neatly. My line about the "linguistic leper colony" seems like a better parting slap-in-the-face to the reader, so I would put Economy before Politics to end it like that. Spıke ¬ 17:16 9-May-12

Hahaha, you really did improve it! Sherbrooke was somehow left out. I guess you came to Quebec City, how did you like it? It must be easy to get around with English only. If you want to collab with me on an unfinished article, I have User:Mattsnow/World War II in the works, as you can imagine it will be a ton of work, and I started it with C2H6O, but it turns out he was banned for being Puppy's sockpuppet (Puppy being infinibanned for that, incredibly). Snowflake mini Mattsnow 17:58, May 9, 2012 (UTC)
I just read it thoroughly and it is awesome! Hilarious stuff! I didn't know Sherbrooke had an article. I guess an article about Quebec city is definitely required... Snowflake mini Mattsnow 18:39, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

In fact, in the two years after the demise of the Massachusetts Mad Dogs, I went to Quebec several times every year and was a fan of Les Capitales. It was easy with English at the ballpark and the hotel; at the lunch buffet, I still had enough French left to read the game summary in Le Journal.

Of your last three edits, the only one I don't like is the "so it doesn't exist." The joke that nothing outside our region exists is trite--the residents of everywhere are provincial. The only reason I wrote it was to say that Ottawa is outside the scope of the article--as a segue to start discussing Gatineau.

As you have not commented on my suggested deletions/reorg above, I assume you are OK if I go ahead and do them. Spıke ¬ 18:47 9-May-12

Oh yes, I'm good with them all! No problem. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 19:01, May 9, 2012 (UTC)

Hey! I just saw that you added a lot of stuff to the Quebec article once again!!! I didn't know. It really is hilarious man, of course I am biased, but I think it is one of the most hilarious article on the wiki :) Snowflake mini Mattsnow 15:22, June 5, 2012 (UTC)

edit World War II

If you want to collab on User:Mattsnow/World War II no problem at all. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 01:20, May 13, 2012 (UTC)

I don't know enough history to help you with the global planning, although I could come in later to rephrase stuff. Romartus is our virtuoso on any topic involving any aspect of world history. I'll take a hack at the intro. General suggestions: Take care to avoid patting yourself on the back for clever phrasings, such as the proper abbreviation of the war; avoid moralizing ("overkill" and "steal" in the Infobox). 09:39 13-May-12 PS--"The timeline" contains funny material, but is a quibble not significant enough to dwell on, and ultimately shouldn't be the first section.

Just asked the question about featuring on Sock's talkpage, feel free to add to what I said! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 01:30, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

Do you like fishing? Me and my best friend have 68 so far, including a 12 inches and a half one! 8 tonight. ( In free spaces, we don't see the interest to go on a pourvoiries, where people pay and don't catch anything!) We are walking in rivers we find on google, walking a mile or 2 in the forest while these rich assholes are floating in lakes, catching nothing. The trouts are in the rivers this time of the year. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 04:02, June 8, 2012 (UTC)

No, I like baseball. Saw Conor Biggio hit a single, double, triple, and home run for the visitors from North Adams, Mass., while none of the home team reached second base. I said it might be the most impressive thing we see all season. People around me were wondering how it will feel to watch 20 more losses. Spıke ¬ 11:44 8-Jun-12
PS--There is "fee fishing" around here too, but most fishing is on public waters for which one needs a state license. Fee fishing is nice because the business is motivated to keep the pond well-stocked to keep customers coming back. "Rich assholes" don't make me poor; spending time here does. Spıke ¬ 16:48 8-Jun-12

edit Forum:Is an indefinite ban too long for an "established user"?

Hello, he who went quiet. You do realize that in that Puppy forum you didn't answer even one of the topics I had brought up? I don't want to go into it anymore, and the forum is closed, so I'll just leave it at Hello Spike (original name of this post:WTF). And what was with the Pee Buddy Award contest? It was thought up in honor of you, the microphone of UnNews, you knucklehead, and you let the thing rot on the vine. A whole contest in which you could have helped to bring back the recording end of UnNews, and you skipped it. I'll leave that topic alone too, and just say Hello Spike (original name of this post:WTF). Aleister 16:00 13-5-'12

p.s. I should have asked you this when the contest was ongoing, but could you please record my entry in the Pee Buddy contest, UnNews:Local man drops vase? It was the only entry in the rewrite division. It would be fun if you could record all the entries, or at least the winner by Mattsnow. Thanks for considering it! 22:24 13-5-'12
I addressed the issues of concern at the start of Section 1 of the Forum. It was not the answer you want. Separately, UnNews Audio has come to seem a self-congratulatory waste of time. I understand you want to be congratulated, but see above. Spıke ¬ 12:27 14-May-12

edit Scottie Pippen

Good work on Scottie Pippen. Care to stick around and improve its content? Spıke ¬ 10:25 18-May-12

I wish I could; unfortunately, I don't have the comedic flair some of you guys have. I'm mostly just good at copyediting and at spotting unfunny additions by autistic preteens. If you want an article thus polished, send it over and I'll try to oblige. 65.8.93.228 14:58, May 18, 2012 (UTC)

All right; I simply noticed that you were doing good work and wanted to encourage you to take a broader view. Many of our pages on NBA stars are built by "autistic preteens" and need not just copyediting but a change in focus, such as away from penis size. Writing funny stuff can be learned; maybe browse our "How to Be Funny and Not Just Stupid" for suggestions. Spıke ¬ 15:18 18-May-12

Yeah, and go ahead and sign up. It's fun. And the thing we stick in your brain only hurts for the first few seconds. One of us! One of us! Gooble-gobble gooble-gobble! We will make you one of us! ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, May 18 '12 17:27 (UTC)

edit Kwanzaa/Classic

How about this great idea - uncy features the Kwanzaa rewrite not if it gets the vote (in late-May, kind of funny in itself) and then we plan to put Kwanzaa/Classic up for feature vote in December?!!? That would be very doable, and you could polish your good page even further and add so much into it to make it a real "classic", literally. Sound good? Aleister 1:03 21-5-'12

I had occasion today to e-mail a local talk host to beg him not to try disorganization jokes because they were too hard to tell from the real thing, and I will say the same thing to you about featuring either Kwanzaa article in May. It will tickle your fancy and the casual reader will just go, "Huh?" Write for the reader. Spıke ¬ 01:08 21-May-12
PS--Also, I don't care whether my version ever gets featured. Anon's is the more notable article. Mine is a passable repair job of what was there previously, but it is the more appropriate Mainspace article. I neither pursue featuring nor perfection, and I am done with it, except that if someone adds stuff, I will try to harmonize it with what's there. Spıke ¬ 01:15 21-May-12

You are a hard man, SPIKE, and a hard man is good to find. There's a lot of time between now and December for your page to be put in very good condition. This other article was a fluke, and I think more people will laugh that it is featured besides me. More importantly, maybe the IP who wrote it may sign up and stick around, or edit as an IP and win awards and things as an IP, which would also be funny. To me, not to anyone else. Hopefully he'll sign up with a name and all. Aleister 1:29 21-5-'12

Well, I hope so too; but, being an Anon and all, he might never know his fluke was featured. The only thing we know for sure that he read was the assertion that he ought not have made major changes to an Established Page without seeking our prior approval. Spıke ¬ 02:07 21-May-12
I wouldn't worry about that, you guys. The IP in question has revealed itself as an incarnation of "Anonymous Crumpeteer", an anonymous user that has shown itself to know the ropes of the site.

What about this "Coolidge", eh? He's able to string multiple coherent sentences together, and his work has elements of humor which the BizzeebeeverBot 2000 is able to recognize.

Simsilikesims did so overnight; see User talk:Coolidge.

Apart from my suggestions on writing headlines on his talk page, I am not rejoining UnNews; it's your job now, to maintain the biggest joke of all, the façade that UnNews itself is a Respectable News Organization, and to take all the resulting crap.

edit ExperimentSock

Your anticipation of being banned, and your dare to the Admins that to do so would be making a statement about them, is as unappealing as when a caller tells a talk-show host that the host is about to hang up; it is guilt-based, preemptive manipulation. Your conviction that you are doing us the service of probing the ambiguity of the rules is at once self-indulgence and the perception of external conspiracy against you. You have been on a self-based crusade for weeks and have seriously disrupted the creative purpose of this website for the sake of making that one final point, even though no one knows what the point is, except that you see something the rest of us don't. Why don't you stalk that ex-girlfriend. You know you need to have the last word. No, the last last word. Spıke ¬ 01:40 1-Jun-12

So basically he's some attention whore trying to make a point that nobody knows about.--Iwillkillyou 333 TALK What's it like to be a heretic? 02:07, June 1, 2012 (UTC)

As Bizzeebeever stated on the guy's talk page, which I also expect them to delete: It would be PuppyOnTheRadio--yes, trying to make a point that nobody knows about, along the lines that we benefit from his continuing association with us, notwithstanding the rules and the goal of this website. Spıke ¬ 02:22 1-Jun-12

Probably. Wish he was still around. Not as a sockpuppet, of course--Iwillkillyou 333 TALK What's it like to be a heretic? 03:08, June 1, 2012 (UTC)
Myself, I have no issue with the guy. He is/was a solid contributor. But he essentially asked for a ban, and then sockpuppeted to get around the ban, again and again and again and again. The rules is the rules. Whether you hate the admins and think they wield too much power and are too petty, or whether you're just being an ass, the only real power the admins have over you is that they can stop you from editing. That's it. And flouting that just pisses them off, and annoys everybody else.
In the end, I probably shouldn't have left anything on his talk page. Paying any attention to him is counter-productive. I'd advise not reporting him to BP in the future, and I wouldn't have done it this time. Now let's get back to reverting vandals and writing shit. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, Jun 1 '12 3:50 (UTC)

Bizzee ably sums up the Puppy episode. Since then, though, Mrthejazz has taken credit for ExperimentSock, declaring that he's never coming back and it's our fault. On the heels of opening a forum asking to be made an Admin, the focus on our opinions and our reactions to being pranked make me doubt even that he's never coming back. But file with the above, under counter-productive. Spıke ¬ 15:22 1-Jun-12

If you're accusing myme of self-promo then you've got the wrong ideas. I just want to get this fucking trash bin of a project back to it's formalformer glory.

"Bro," you don't have the stripes to lay down the law to the Chief. I don't care if the Signpost fell onto your humble shoulders, you are acting unilaterally, overusing the word "shall," and deprecating the effort of those who went before you.

Thanks. I just did an edit on Manmohan Singh, moving one photo to be the initial photo, as is usual here.

edit Bizzeebeever's letter to Wikia

Meanwhile, BB, your letter to Wikia neglects the cardinal rule of writing: Whenever you write anything, know what your goal is, and have everything you write serve that goal. Your goal in writing to Wikia is to persuade. You allow yourself to digress to cracking wise (the perennial currency of social interaction here) and even patting yourself on the back for your cleverness. You join several people in the Forum in seemingly trying to make a name for yourself as an activist rather than achieve the maximum effect.

Persuasion will be difficult, as avoiding complaint-letters from morons (and subsequent lawsuits), while not one of our goals, is obviously one of Wikia's; it is part of minimizing the cost of providing their service. They and we have different values, most acutely, their desire to use our content to induce exposure to their advertising, which various of our users view as either prostitution or surrender to capitalism.

Specific aspects of your letter that reduce its persuasiveness include:

  • Airing our past history with Wikia when writing to a person who might not have been part of that history.
  • Doubting that the reader can detect sarcasm.
  • Predicting (as a pre-emptive guilt trip) that the reader will not take your letter seriously.

Experience suggests that they will give you a response that is much more businesslike than your letter to them--especially as the people on their front lines have been trained that they are dealing with creative personnel and not vendors of pencils. But it does cost them to turn this around, and I am unaware that they are making any money from their association with us, apart from selling our surfing activity to Google, as the ads at the bottom of our articles are all cross-promotions and never for soap flakes. How much more of this before they dump us, long before we can even storm off in a huff? Spıke ¬ 11:07 6-Jun-12

Thanks for the pointers, Spike, but I did have a goal, and it wasn't to persuade, it was to galvanize by mockery. Does my letter read like that of a pompous, self-aggrandizing smart-ass who is overwhelmed by his own cleverness? Yep. Hi, I'm Bizzeebeever. Nice to meet you.
Wikia, in this matter, has displayed the attitude of a bumbling, risk-averse, reactive corporacy, which runs contrary to their professed desire to serve open and free discourse. Their responses so far have been a clear, firm, "It's going to happen, and it's not so bad, guys, so why don't you all just live with it?" For that obliviousness, they richly deserve to be mocked, and as they had already rebuffed you and Mattsnow, who employed polite diplomacy, I felt mockery was not going to hurt anything. If they are not true idiots, the letter may do some good; if they are idiots, the letter may at least entertain them. Sometimes mockery succeeds where politeness and diplomacy fail. Usually it doesn't. And sometimes, those being mocked send you to the Guillotine. If that happens, though, it was only a matter of time, to begin with. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usWed, Jun 6 '12 12:03 (UTC)

No, your strategy is persuasion; your tactic was mockery; the tactic won't achieve the strategy because mockery rarely persuades and it almost always makes your adversary dig in. Also, writing a successful business letter based on an alternate persona is much harder even than writing a good Uncyclopedia article based on an alternate persona. You were conducting a public performance, an expertise that would do more good if used to build the mainspace. Spıke ¬ 12:10 6-Jun-12

That's not my persona, that's actually me. I'm guessing you probably wouldn't like me if you met me. At any rate, before I sent it, I hadn't intended to post the letter here. I suppose I should have waited until I received what will be, in all likelyhood, a cold and officious rebuttal from our gracious hosts. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usWed, Jun 6 '12 12:19 (UTC)

Cripes! so Wikia is going to blow you off, and I wouldn't even like you! In fact, I've found you one of the more deliberate and level-headed of the new users. However, if we acquire inevitable disagreements, remember that calmness and understanding of the other's values works better than theatrics. Spıke ¬ 12:44 6-Jun-12

Meanwhile, Shape-shifting is coming along nicely. Cat the Colourful took time out from being a fellow drama queen to contribute a photo as you requested, and I found another at Deep Space 9. I'll leave it to the author (who has not been on board in over a day since he created this) to supercharge the humor.

What should be done about this clown? He spams his monkeyed Garfield comics everywhere.

"What should be done" is rollback, ban, etc. Putting one's calling-card inside various articles is about ego and not about being careful to write what best makes the reader laugh.

edit Bizzeebeever: customizing reports

that thing you asked about...I just chopped together a watchlist widget, you can get it to work by including

importScript( "User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/watchgadget.js" )

in your user script. It includes an "(unwatch)" link for every page. I have only tested it in two browsers, so let me know if it works for you. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Jun 10 '12 15:40 (UTC)

Oh, that is schweet. Quibbles: "(unwatch)" is too verbose for a rarely-used option; perhaps just a logo (red circle/slash)? And if it appeared before the page title, they would all line up and you wouldn't have to scan to find them. Spıke ¬ 15:56 10-Jun-12
A more important note if you are going to do software engineering for other people's use: If you would incorporate a date code or a version number into the name (User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/watchgadget-v1.js for example), then I could use your work without implicitly picking up your future experimentation, future bugs, and future features I don't care to adopt. Cheers! Spıke ¬ 16:20 10-Jun-12

Advice noted; I'll probably do that for future versions of patrol.js, but I doubt I'll be adding features to watchgadget.js, other than to improve the way it detects links. (By the way, there will be pages that show up with the "unwatch" symbol next to them which aren't actually on your watchlist. This is because the MediaWiki software is...sadly...retarded. Also, I can't test in I.E., because Wikia's CONTENT WARNING has broken the site scripts. Imagine that!)

I made the other changes you suggested; refresh your cache and tell me if they work for you. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Jun 10 '12 16:42 (UTC)

...wow, are you running Windows 95? *snicker*

And what do you mean by "rollbacks"? Do you mean, just change the word [rollback] to a symbol, or make it so you can rollback a change from recentChanges without leaving the page? If it's the latter, I very much doubt that's a good idea. I've already accidentally rolled back other peoples' changes twice now, just because I have a touchpad and I was too slow to hit ESC. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Jun 10 '12 17:00 (UTC)

For your information, I do run Win95, and DOS for anything that doesn't require the Cartoon Interface; and have Firefox 1.5 installed on Win98, though I don't actually surf anywhere with it. And yes, I meant just change the word [rollback]. I too have made mistakes (though it's trivial to roll back your rollback). Among other things, I thought it would be harder to do so if the target were smaller. Spıke ¬ 01:50 11-Jun-12

FreeDOS + OPENGEM? :D

Try putting this --> @import "/wiki/User:Bizzeebeever/styles/rollback.css?action=raw&ctype=text/css"; into the very top of this file (if you use the uncyclopedia theme). If you just want to use JavaScript, use this: importStylesheet( "User:Bizzeebeever/styles/rollback.css" ). It uses a CSS trick I learned a few years ago from the Apple website, no javascript needed. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Jun 11 '12 9:32 (UTC)

I put it where all my CSS goes. (No, not on a floppy disk.) Ran into the old bug that Wikia blocks the use of url() in such places, so I had to get a local copy of the logo. And had to add !important to background-repeat. Just what I wanted, thanks; and if you ever find I rolled you back, you'll know it's a mistake. Spıke ¬ 11:09 11-Jun-12

Okee-dokee. As for me, I use five or six different browsers, so I find that it's sometimes more convenient to keep site-specific CSS on the site itself, and it seems to be working for me, at the moment, even with the url() function in the code. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Jun 11 '12 12:01 (UTC)

edit Inhibiting display

One last annoyance. Since you use user-css with Firefox, here's a neat bit for you:

	.ContentWarning.WikiaArticle {
		display: none !important;
		}

	.ShowContentWarning #content {
		background-color: #FFFFFF !important;
		background-image: none !important;
		}

	#siteNotice {
		display: block;
		}

	#bodyContent {
		display: block !important;
		overflow: auto !important;
		visibility: visible !important;
		width: auto !important;
		}		

This should hide the CONTENT WARNING from ever appearing for you again — at least, on your browser. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 11:12 (UTC)

I see you reverted that, but let me reply--
I never see the Content Warning while logged on, as Wikia has made it remember my preferences for gratuitous sex, racism, and offense. I have seen it recently from two ballparks, but I would just as soon see it so I know which box to click.
However, having cut the width of the left column in half and eliminated some categories, I would like it to go away entirely, as I nearly always go to pages using the (recently returned to sensible operation, at user option) search bar, or from reports. What is the element that most elegantly can be set to display: none? Spıke ¬ 11:22 12-Jun-12

You mean the nav-bar? That thing over <<-- there? ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 11:48 (UTC)

Exactly. Spıke ¬ 11:50 12-Jun-12

#column-one { display: none } will get rid of the logo and navbar completely. HOWEVAH: the main content pane remains where it is, and does not fill the screen, if that's what you're looking for. I can drum up the css to change that, if you'd like. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 11:51 (UTC)

Oh, and don't use that, because it gets rid of the toolbar at the top of the page. >.< Doesn't appear to be a simple way. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 12:04 (UTC)

I was about to complain. Perhaps I'll continue tweaking the width-narrowing code I devised earlier. Spıke ¬ 12:08 12-Jun-12

Now, this:

	#content { width:auto !important; padding-top: 60px !important; left: 0; }
	#column-content { float:none; width:auto; }

drops the navbar below the content. Looks ugly if/when you scroll down, but at least it's not taking up your eyeball-space up above. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 12:15 (UTC)

Does not, and doesn't seem as though it would. In conjunction with my other hacks, it does nothing but give me 60px of white space at the top of the page. Spıke ¬ 12:34 12-Jun-12

>_< On my computer, the first one gets rid of an explicit width for #content and gives it an extra 60px so that the logo isn't raping the page-title. The second rule gets rid of the float, and also corrals #column-content to the inside of the window.

Anyway, just *this*

#p-cactions, #p-search, #p-personal, #footer { display: block !important; } /* keep everything but the sidebar */
#column-one > * { display: none; } /* hide the rest */

should hide the navbar, at the very most. Since I don't know what-all hacks you've got, I guess I have no way of knowing how to stretch the main content to fill the window. Hope it works for you, and happy hacking. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Jun 12 '12 12:47 (UTC)

Almost got it. The only nagging problems are the excess space below the top row of buttons, and the fact that some command somewhere is producing a page width greater than 1024px. Spıke ¬ 14:12 12-Jun-12

My best guess is that the spotlight-ad display at the bottom of the page is making the page content too wide. If you haven't hidden them already, try this: #spotlight_container { display:none }. Otherwise, I have no clue. As for the space between the content and the edit/history/talk bar, that could only be one or two things: there is a pad or a margin at the top of one of the content <div>. You might try #content { padding-top: 0 !important; margin-top: 0 !important; }. Hope that helps. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usWed, Jun 13 '12 6:22 (UTC)

Excuse me good sir. But why did you undo my edits to my William Craig article? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Axlman5 (talk • contribs)

I saw in RecentChanges the one where you changed "my dirty vag" to "my smell [sic] vag." I decided this was not enough better to warrant going in and correcting it, and instead used my magic Rollback button, which undid many other changes I had not seen. The rest of them are mostly different rather than better, but I don't mind them. You may undo my change, though the whole article is ranty and slutty and I hope you will go on to improve its tone rather than just delight in a website where you can use swears. Articles should be good for the reader and not just a naughty pleasure for the writer. Thank you for asking and not just reverting. Spıke ¬ 21:40 25-Jun-12

I don't know if this how I'm supposed to respond to your response, but I can't figure out any other way lol.

I appreciate the criticism. I'll see if I can improve on the article, with your critiques in mind. However, I just want to say a few things:

I think there was significantly more to the article than me "delighting in " naughty language. However, I guess there was a lot of sexual jokes, and maybe I can change some of them. I did think to myself that the sexual jokes were kind of cheap, but it is kind of funny considering who Craig is and how his responses are still consistent what he actually says in real life. As for the ranty nature, that's kinda my style, but I don't think the rants are so unfocused to render the article unpleasant to read.

Most of the edits I made were for spelling and grammatical changes, so that's why they weren't "better". The only reason the "smelly vagina" one was made was because that made it consistent with Craig's response.

Anyway, thanks for the response. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Axlman5 (talk • contribs)

Yes, typing here is the usual way to reply, as I prefer that the conversation all be in one place. You could have posted something on User talk:Axlman5 but I am not "watching" you at the moment.

Now, the templates for North America, Central and South America, etc., should correspond to these bars, but it would be nice if the relevant bar to any article would default to the show state. Then we wouldn't need a ponderous template listing every real country for which Uncyclopedia has an article. Spıke ¬ 15:27 4-Jul-12

Yeah, that was the idea from the beginning, right? Only show the section that corresponds to the page it's on?

Anyway, do I need to import this? Because we either need it, or something like it. Its code is needlessly complex for our purposes here, but might be useful for other shit later on. If I do import it, I gotta rip the shit out of it which we don't need and will never need; if I don't import it, I gotta come up with something from scratch. Your call. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jul 5 '12 5:48 (UTC)

BB: Yes, that was the idea from the beginning. Dunno whether to believe the documentation on {{Navbox}} that it is used on a googol plex Uncyclopedia pages, but using existing code is attractive from the standpoint of not repeating work, making the appearance to the user more uniform, and making machine-based navigation more expedient. Qzekrom: Yes, in no case was I going to re-type everything.

Sorry to hear about your Internet troubles. Anyway, we have a deprecated NavFrame CSS class + Javascript here. Unfortunately, it has been styled for the unsignpost, which it is used primarily for. Also it is deprecated. We do not have the JS which is required to make the wikipedia navbox work, and looking at the code they use, I can see that it does not even follow the MediaWiki guidelines for best-practices. >_< I'm working on my own, it's mostly done, now all I have to do is convince an admin to import it into the main site script....blah blah blah, it'll be ready to go probably within the week.

In the meantime, feel free to have a look at User:Bizzeebeever/Template. The script isn't working yet, the boxes have not been styled properly, and the formatting is just a rough draft, but...it's a start. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, Jul 6 '12 12:33 (UTC)

edit Mostly finished

The final version is going to consist of the current country navboxes all transcluded into this one (after I fix them up, of course). If you've got any ideas for a color scheme, that would be appreciated; should I just go with the boring default wikipedia look? ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Jul 15 '12 7:53 (UTC)

Sorry for the silence--I am still off-line except at the ballpark or parked outside the public library, and my car is not air conditioned, nor is the ballpark. Your template is awesome and exactly solves the problem. I have no opinion on color schemes. Is there a way for the existing continent templates to transclude to this one with the respective continent expanded by default and the other ones hidden? Spıke ¬ 14:05 17-Jul-12

Probably would be a good idea.

On a separate note: I just realized that I left off the entirety of Asia (and Asia is sooo easy to forget, lol I mean liek nobody lives there rite roflbananas). Seeing the template with javascript turned off on my computer (as it usually is), I have to say that is one ridiculously long and ugly template -- even longer and uglier than having a continent navbox AND the {{World Countries}} navbox. So I'm thinking I'll make it so that the appropriate continent is expanded, and then all the other countries are listed in groups, rather than separate navboxes. I'm working on that right now. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, Jul 20 '12 14:44 (UTC)

edit Walt Disney on VFD

Regarding this comment: Maybe. The impetus behind it was to try and tackle the objection in a civil manner. He/She had been advised previously to add it to VFD, so I figured rather than just remove it - which was my first move - but to add it back and give a rationale behind why it wasn't a relevant VFD nomination. Of course, for my actions I was called an idiot in a grammatically jarring manner, and STUPIDO. Which then lead me to just add him/her to UN:BP. I was working on the assume good grace mentality. I make that mistake fairly often, but I always err on the side of civility where possible.                               Puppy's talk page02:35 31 Jul

I commend you on assuming good faith in your dealings with every new user. Nevertheless, not all whims of all new users deserve syntactic correction. The gist of 999's vulgar nomination was that he reveres Walt Disney and that Uncyclopedia should be damned for daring to ridicule him. Separately, a large majority of users voted with you and with me that the article is not deleteworthy. I was not saying that your impulses were incorrect or dishonorable, and am not responsible for the names you got called afterward. I was saying that this particular nomination (the operative word being "Sometimes") ought not to have been made. Spıke ¬ 18:12 31-Jul-12

I appreciate your tweaks, but I have a hard time figuring out why the article was shrunk by 700 bytes or something. Did you delete some sentences?

I would not go into someone else's article, delete material outright, and bill the work as a "copy edit." But I reduced verbosity throughout, and a 700-byte total sounds reasonable to me.

I agree that it changed drastically and is a no-brainer for a feature, as it certainly does since it is a lot better than the original thanks to you.

That solves the red-link. You already solved another red-link as you advise Kamek below, by pointing it to a file that exists (by way of subversive "translation"). In this case--Air America--I was fond of the red-link, as the point of the paragraph was that Air America was terminally unsuccessful (why, it doesn't even have an Uncyclopedia entry!). I have fleshed out the See Also section and re-added an Air America link, which is red. You might want to do this your way too (as you are fond of consistency), or do yours my way, or do nothing.
I re-captioned two of the illustrations that you did me the favor of adding: One because the original caption needed double-small typography (triple-small if you consider that captions already appear in reduced point size), the other because your caption on the car mechanic was outright derogatory, whereas the tone of the prose is simply to dance around the fact that the audience is simply very peculiar.

Dicey either way. The joke is: "Air America (hey, wait, there's nothing there!)"--My way, the reader has to know what a red-link is; your way, the reader doesn't see it at all (except perhaps on the status line) unless he clicks on the link. Spıke ¬ 08:09 4-Nov-12

OK. In my uncyclopedia.js, I tried to move your other JavaScript files inside the .href.match test. It didn't seem to work, or I ran out of patience at my slow connection. (Does this test really work? Does the argument not require quotes?) I backed this change out, but generally still run with images and JavaScript disabled, which massively reduces the volume transferred, and it's difficult to work RecentChanges.

You can absolutely move those other "importScript()" statements inside the test above; you probably won't notice any speedup, though, because your browser caches the scripts anyway, so you're not really re-fetching them for every page you visit. The test does really work; the argument indeed does not require quotes, as it is not a string literal but rather a regular expression, which is denoted by the "/"s. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Dec 11 '12 14:48 (UTC)

I recognize that it's a regular expression (presumably with the ability to escape parentheses within it) but it's still astonishing that JavaScript wouldn't require quotes. Your Change Summary (in changing "parameter" to "argument") is intriguing. A long time ago, I tried to persuade a standards committee (as its traveling secretary) to adopt exactly this terminology, as it was potentially useful to have the two words mean those two things respectively, whereas it wasn't useful at all to have two ways to say the same two things. Got nowhere with them; they weren't opposed but just didn't seem to see any point to it. Spıke ¬ 15:12 11-Dec-12

Quotes delimit strings (which are technically objects, since everything in Javascript is essentially an object with properties and methods), while slashes delimit objects -- instances of the RegExp object, to be precise. As for parameters and arguments, and whether or not they're synonymous (as many people treat them) ...most people fry panfish, and use minnows for bait. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Dec 11 '12 15:25 (UTC)

Congrats on all the features.

My count may be wrong though, as it's hard to tell on your Hall of Shame entry. Everyone else lists their features in chronological order. You, still at an anal level (which explains your politics), list them alphabetically. So the ascertainment of the award's recipient must be computed come January 1. Be prepared though, as the anal boy scouts handbook says. Nice work. Aleister 13:35 19decemb12

But the issues I find interesting and freedom-enhancing are doing fairly well right now. The union thing has a flow to it, I think what will happen with the Republican's overreach is that everyone will go back to form one big union, which was the whole idea in the first place. That's one I'll watch for. That Westboro Baptist Church is full of people who like the adrenaline rush of being assholes and have everyone hate them for it. Hmmmmmm, I should pop in a YouTube thing of Phelps talking, with a page-appropriate caption. She's a hard woman to please. Al 21:33 20decemb12

Hi Spike. I know this article isn't looking the best (hence my fix tags) but I would prefer the author to be given the chance to improve it himself.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:43, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

I concur! Don't know who listed it on QVFD, but mine is the note on the next line down that I was trying to work with the guy. RAHB deleted his first upload of this article, though, and when he copped an attitude with me on his talk page, I listed him on Ban Patrol. I have no problem with the way you're dealing with it, but he needs to learn stuff fast; his rant still isn't funny, and his new See Also is interminable, and also not funny. Spıke ¬ 00:09 23-Dec-12

edit Kerala and other features

Nice waiting until the last minute, a la Romartus. This is why I think there should be a two-week rule on nominating articles for specific holidays. Although Auld Lang Syne has spit in my face with the cruelest of ironies.

Also, SPIKE himself said that my holiday articles would be a bummer to read on Christmas Day. On that note...
Gelt Kip the Dip has given you some gelt!
Congrats on the feature! Personally, I thought the entire article went downhill after the Dezi Arnez pun.
Also, I was going to give you a candy cane, but there isn't any.



edit VFD

Rule 6: Don't remove anything from VFD unless you're one of the sprouts. Rule 7: Don't lecture other people in a deeply condescending way when you're the one who has fucked-up. --mAttlobster. (hello) 00:15, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

Both of us made a mistake, but your point is taken. Spıke ¬ 00:22 30-Dec-12

edit Your vote against Dannyboy1209 on Uncyclopedia:Noob_of_the_Moment

Hey. When we revamped this we had a forum discussion thingy about the purpose of the award and the voting and one of the things we stated was that we didn't want to have "against" votes - especially as we have allowed the potential of "for" votes for multiple n00bs. I think there's a link to the relevant forum in the talk page there somewhere, but I couldn't be arsed looking for it. Anyway, stuff.                               Puppy's talk page11:42 03 Jan

Very well. My Against vote was while patrolling the site and does not reflect a sudden desire to start voting on personalities; for Dannyboy1209, a self-nom that was invalidated was virtually his second stop after demanding to become an Admin. The nomination was an act of rumpswabbery by Kamek98 that deserved immediate rebuttal. If you are managing this page and wish to strike my vote, do so; but your time would be better spent adding nominations of newbies more notable than either Dannyboy1209 or Igotnothing, and in my opinion that would be any of the others.
