edit MonsterQuest

Humour: 7 Pretty good humor-wise, got a few good laughs. I think the subject does have potential for more expansive jokes, though.
Concept: 8 No problems here, though it would be nice to have a sentence in the introduction mentioning that this is, in fact, an example of a typical episode (or that this is every episode of the series) rather than being an encyclopedic entry about the show itself (history of the program, production, cast bios, etc.)
Prose and formatting: 8 Well written.
Images: 8 Since there are so few captioned images (which works perfectly in the piece), the lead could use a stronger cap. Good otherwise.
Miscellaneous: 8 Ice Road Truckers callbacks were good.
Final Score: 39 In the words of the B-52's: "Good stuff."

edit Elizabeth I

Humour: 10 Excellent. Truly the type of humor that Uncyclopedia was made for.
Concept: 10 The blending of humor, feminism and history is pulled off brilliantly. I'm always amazed when legitimate topics such as this are made into such brilliant pieces.
Prose and formatting: 9 I could nitpick, but it would be seriously unwarranted.
Images: 8 Well-captioned and fitting for the piece.
Miscellaneous: 9 Great use of footnotes (obviously), and overall just a damn fine entry.
Final Score: 46 Wonderful. Thank you for another fine addition to this website Mickey.

edit RedHerring

Humour: 7 Very dry, but some alright jokes. Well done in terms of encyclopedic mockery.
Concept: 7 The concept in and of itself is fine, but the execution doesn't really go anywhere outside of the box. I like the idea of a completely straight telling in an article about red herrings, but the jokes therein need to carry that bigger picture.
Prose and formatting: 9 Very well written. This is the type of writing I enjoy THINKERing; quality work that just needs a little funnying.
Images: 8 Appropriate for the piece.
Miscellaneous: 7 Good use of footnotes and other conventions.
Final Score: 38 Enjoyable, well-written work, but could be a bit funnier.

edit The History of the Decline and Fall of Uncyclopedia

Humour: 8 Christ, its like you wrote this especially for me. Could've been a bit more packed humor-wise, but still great.
Concept: 8 Obviously meta to the limit, but that'd really be my only issue conceptually. I completely agree with the sentiment. A few more abstract jokes would anchor it better, I think.
Prose and formatting: 9 To quote myself from '08, "C'mon, it's Mhaille. No worries here"
Images: 10 Excellent.
Miscellaneous: 8 Because I do hope the aliens regard our work the future.
Final Score: 43 High five.

edit The Pregnancy of Great Britain

Humour: 7 Interesting start, kind of wanders a bit, but there is a lot of good in here.
Concept: 7 It'd have to get a bit tighter to fully carry the concept, but not bad.
Prose and formatting: 7 This is definitely evident in the strong start. Then it gets a bit scattered, and eventually almost nears the border of CMJ territory. Still, compelling enough to hold me through the good parts.
Images: 7 They're appropriate, some funnier than others.
Miscellaneous: 8 Good work. Needs some upgrades, but I see the effort.
Final Score: 36 Keep on rocking in the free world.

edit Days Of Our Lives

Humour: 6 I see some jokes around in here. But there is a whole hodgepodge-y feel to this that seriously detracts.
Concept: 6 It seems like you're trying to pack a lot into this, which is good. However, the execution just isn't there for me.
Prose and formatting: 7 Definitely not bad here. Just a lot of rambling patches that don't fully facilitate the humor you're looking to present.
Images: 7 Fine for the concept.
Miscellaneous: 7 Not a bad effort by any means.
Final Score: 33 Needs work, but I respect what was put into at this stage.

edit Jesus Lites™

Humour: 6 There is a lot of work in this. However unfortunately, it doesn't draw the laughs that this type of work deserves.
Concept: 6 A fine concept, but not executed well enough humor-wise to carry it fully.
Prose and formatting: 9 Well written. The work put in shines in this regard.
Images: 7 All fine, but this is an article that feels like a bit of image overload. Its rare that I suggest removing images, but this might be a piece worthy of that critique.
Miscellaneous: 9 Because I appreciate the effort here sincerely, and acknowledge that many of the issues I have with the piece may be completely subjective in nature.
Final Score: 37 Sin fists for Christ.
