edit Templates suck!

I.P. Anon today topped his article on Erectil [sic] Dysfunction with the {{Crap}} template. I rolled it back with a snippy Change History that UnNews is assumed to be crap and a template saying so breaks the cover of looking like a news story for the sake of some canned laughter.

No, but this thing is an abortion. I'm ICUing it, not deleting it, purely as an exercise of good faith. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 19:51, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Now, I would never revert you, Chief, but your "Approved by Zim" template has the same problem--even though Orian begged you in the Change History to let his article live. UnNews, good or bad, doesn't need anyone's seal of approval. It needs to look like news, until you read it. Spıke ¬ 17:26 16-Mar-10

Yeah, in fact that zim template has nothing to do with me. It's a reference to the "Invader Zim" cartoon, which I highly recommend. Hilarious. Anyway, adding that template was not a specific act to protect the article, just sort of an obtuse kiss on the cheek, as I am wont to do on occasion.
I love that you call me on stuff; it makes me rethink, which is probably a good thing. Do continue, please. Having said that, I do reserve the right to exhibit bat fuck behavior, as it is my nature to do so. In truth, I often hold back... quite a bit. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 19:51, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

A new section in the Style Guide notes your impartiality (between news-based news and made-up news) when choosing articles for the Front Page, based on your recent response on the subject. I didn't add, but was thinking about, your impartiality between deadpan and batfuck. Separately, when you replaced one of my sources with {{Old news}}, I created another section (under Sources) telling writers how to do that. Spıke ¬ 20:24 16-Mar-10

OK, then. UnNews, and by association, we, rock! Can you elaborate on the deadpan/batfuck thing? Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 21:46, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Bat-fuck being articles that delight in their irrationality; my alternative being articles whose irrationality only comes out under scrutiny. You feature both, cheers. Meanwhile, when you correct one of my articles, and there seems to be a pattern, I will document it on behalf of our cub reporters. 'S what I do, Chief. Spıke ¬ 22:48 16-Mar-10

Ah, I see. Not long ago, when I returned from an unanticipated absence due to a dead PC, there was a dearth of articles. At one point, I committed to try to contribute at least one article a day to puff things up a bit, and trying to whore UnNews to some folks in IRC chat. Those dark days were dominated by bat fuck writing, mostly because I am no writer, and that's the best I could do; I became a content generator, a pen filled with diarrhea for ink. Now that UnNews has some decent writing (and some might argue, writing of better quality) to round things out, I am happy to submit fewer articles; still bat fuck, perhaps, crafted more carefully. I am also bat fuck pleased that the overall coolness of this place in general is rising, and I've barely had to lift a finger. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev.

Yeah, uh, memes (especially Chuck Norris) are forbidden at Uncyc. Maybe Chronarian could get away with it, but that's out of respect for his position as founder Uncyc, and fear of his evil powers. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 08:37, March 17, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Zim! Sure, I just double-checked on the WWW and came to know that memes are forbidden. And, as was predicted long ago, Uncyclopedia is the "Anti-Chuck, which is right by me. I mean, "Fuck Chuck!" And thanks always for the edits and upbringing. BTW: What's a Meme? <--If this link works then please no need to explain. I'm interested to know the Uncyclopedia Jargon, such as "meme" and "spork" - otherwise it's all Polish to me. For sure I want to do things correctly. So please keep me clued in - much appreciated. Cheers dude!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 15:53, Mar 17
Yeah, certain memes have been more than played out here at Uncyclopedia. "Oscar Wilde is another", as are "I burning your dog" (not to be confused with Hyena blazing) and Cthulhu. I hope you're not having to get therapy for the harsh treatment I'm giving you, and if so, you're taking Uncyc waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too seriously [1]
Anyway, don't sweat it. I've already thought of doing an article denouncing your Chuck article, and of course, if you hadn't written it, there would be one less piece to jam incorrectly into the puzzle that is Uncyc. Everything is good... now have a lie down, and when you wake up, the embedded hypnotic suggestion in this text will make you feel much better. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev.

  1. I know you're not, though, because I've scanned your mind with the UnCanninator; just a chaotic jumble of stuff, looks much like the inside of my brainpan, but with less bat fuck.

edit Cthulhu

I don't know how to pronounce Cthulhu. Or even pwn. These three pages steeped in the history of UnNews moved yesterday to a new department, Customer "service" (in the Biblical sense), right underneath the Departments (or unmanageable list of every UnNews story ever written, by world region) and the entire load has now dropped to the bottom of the right column.

You are still itching for a public dispute with any willing combatant on the pages of UnNews, aren't you?! Spıke ¬ 15:29 18-Mar-10

Hah! Itching? I'm boiling over! I'm looking to cause as much damage as possible!
Well, no, not really. I just want people who are concerned to have their say. I've always been one of the more laid back admins. That being said, I pretty much have final say about much of UnNews, and as such, will always decide in favor of what I think is good for UnNews. Good work on those changes, by the way. It may not be the ultimate solution, but things are coming together nicely, and we have a better presentation, I think. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 15:36, March 18, 2010 (UTC)

edit The whatchamacallit

Hi Zim! I just heard from Spike that -- was OUT, and – was IN for use in UnNews. Be certain that I'm just trying to please every one, and I just want to do it all right. It's just that I'm such a dunce I can't even figure how to archive a talk page. MrN did it for me, but I don't know how. That's my problem, er, solution! Cheers--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 22:57, Mar 18

As for archiving a talk page, it's easy really. All you need to do is create a page, call it User:Funnybony/Archive01, for example. Next, paste the contents of your talk page into the new page you've just created as your archive. Once you've saved the new archive page and checked to make sure it has the correct content, clear up your talk page for fresh entries. When you find you need to archive again, create another sequentially named page, like User:Funnybony/Archive02 in this case, and repeat. Then lather, rinse, repeat. I hope this was helpful. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 00:22, March 19, 2010 (UTC)
No, I told you the exact opposite--at least, immediately following the place name. Zim, please confirm and I'll make sure the Style Guide got it right. Spıke ¬ 23:08 18-Mar-10
See UnNews:Style, end of Section 5.2. Spıke ¬ 23:09 18-Mar-10

The normal formatting for the item in question is two dashes -- . In the past, some have have done it like this:

  • THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH is not, as some suppose, a circus. It is UnNews.

I am amenable to both. The only thing forbidden is an m-dash; they blow up stuff when pasted into the podcast file . Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 00:22, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Oops! I wrote your preference into the Style Guide, but didn't change the example, as Zim has just done. Funnybony is evidently influencing me; I've just filed a story with both exclamation points and swears (on hockey). It may be revised, as the game has not yet ended. Spıke ¬ 00:39 19-Mar-10

Zim, I rewrote and renamed the (real) Jellyfish news mirth as Giant mutant jellyfish sighted off Tahiti - and I hope you can use it some time, like when there is none or only one news on some day. And please edit as much as you can. I tried to keep it in my UserSpace when I renamed it. Now it's for sure in the wrong place, because it's UnNews, not article. Can you grab that to start off you good idea of "news under consideration"

I'll look at Giant mutant jellyfish sighted off Tahiti, possibly mutilate it, and get back to you eventually.
The easiest way is to go to your user page, put your cursor at the end of the line where it says User:Funnybony, and type name you want to use, in this case, "/Archive01", make sure to include the slash. A new window will open with instructions on how to create this new page. let me know if you need some help. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 01:56, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

edit UnNews

Hi Zim! I'll try to be regular with one story every day (like a good noob). The "Hell Cost" news I was REALLY uncertain about, both from point of humor (too corny?) and taste - being as how we all feel terrible about the Jews in WWII. And it's scary that happened recently - only 65 years ago. Pretty gruesome stuff. Never the less, the Hell Cost news seems to be OK (with the gang). From now on I'll try to parody real current news. But I do have a few more whacked out ideas, such as "FED goes public with IPO" and "Pentagon AWOL!" OR "Alien abducted by earthlings" OR "Trump buys Brooklyn Bridge" or "FED holds dollar clearance sale - 99% off" - " or "Fort Knox robbed - nothing to steal" - ahem! Yeah! Pretty stupid, I admit!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 18:25, Mar 20

No worries, I've done at least one stupid story, so I empathise with you completely, Chers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 20:53, March 20, 2010 (UTC)
In my opinion, any shock value of "Hell Cost" is softened by the lead of Ahmadinejad, who is likely to say or believe anything. On the other hand, Funnybony, the fact that six new "whacked out ideas" entered your head is not proof of newsworthiness to anyone else. Do 'em GOOD or stick to something we care about. (Some of the above ideas could, in fact, be forced onto the week's real stories.) Spıke ¬ 11:23 21-Mar-10
Let's avoid from making such remarks such as "something we care about". If the man has whacked ideas that turnes out to be good stories, he is more than welcome to share with the rest of the class. ~Jewriken.GIF 14:33, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

edit UnNews creation template

It appears that the creation template for unNews has some issues with Hotcat. If the ending comment section, i.e.:

<!-- Add a category here to help promote your article, if you wish. The categories linked from the UnNews main page are [[Category:Antarctica]], [[Category:Africa]], [[Category:Asia]], [[Category:East Asia]], [[Category:North America]], [[Category:Middle East]], [[Category:Central America]], [[Category:South America]]. Just copy and paste the one(s) you think apply(ies) in the space following this arrow.-->

section is not removed, any added categories are placed inside of the "comment" section, right after Category:South America. This causes the category to in effect, not be added, since it is placed in a hidden comment. For example, adding Category:BUTT POOP produces:

<!-- Add a category here to help promote your article, if you wish. The categories linked from the UnNews main page are [[Category:Antarctica]], [[Category:Africa]], [[Category:Asia]], [[Category:East Asia]], [[Category:North America]], [[Category:Middle East]], [[Category:Central America]], [[Category:South America]] [[Category:BUTT POOP]]. Just copy and paste the one(s) you think apply(ies) in the space following this arrow.-->

Is there any easy way to fix that? --Mn-z 00:48, March 22, 2010 (UTC)

An elegant solution (unfortunately, of the category "Please take your problem down the hall" is to teach Hotcat to ignore comments in articles.
A solution that UnNews could endeavor is to no longer hide this information in the creation template. Take the list of categories out of the creation template and cover it in the Style Guide along with all our instructions to authors. (E.M.C. has already complained that this Guide is getting too long, especially in the formatting department. However, the business of categories is one area where Zim often edits my UnNews--he knows categories I don't--and every time he has to come in and edit an author, my solution is to make the instructions to authors better.)

Zim. Haa!! Even the title is great, you made it mucho greater.

Apart from UnNews I just did a VERY CRITICAL STUDY OF face-hugging bad motherfucking jerk-in-chief the Blue-ringed octopus (after which Alien face-hugger was designed). Its (only) a million times worse than the Alien ever dreamed of being (acid for blood is wimp stuff) - I think is funny and different approach-tone than my other articles (maximum disparage). I'd love your opinion. It's NOT long winded. If you feel impelled to edit - please fire away! Thanks--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 20:36, Mar 23

Thanks, I'm glad you approve of my edits. I will read the blue ring article later, when I've got time to read it properly. I used to think about those when I was snorkeling in Okinawa. Actually saw a lionfish in the wild, and barracudas. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 20:51, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
The Blue-ringed octopus is worse than the fictional Alien. You can't touch it, eat it, or fuck it, so I DEMONIZED IT - as the most horrible god-awful creation in all existence. The Alien "face-hugger" were designed after it - YUCK!!! It's exaggeration of the fact. I got a Pee and they suggested I repeat Wikipedia and make a straight factual article. I told that I'm a Wikipedia editer (with many articles) since long before I joined Uncyclopeda, and the straight "facts" are NOT funny. That's why I'm here because I can BS and exaggerate - in a 3rd category: HTBAANJD (How to be absurd and not just drab). Not everyone likes my kind of jokes NOR my kind of music, but some do, and they count. From reading FAs, many are just drab, long-winded "factual content" sounding like Wikipedia. Like I think "Jack Bauer has never slept with a women - NOT because he is gay, but because he never sleeps!" - is goddamn funny! But Wikipedia is NOT funny in the least, nor is a slightly tweaked Wiki article funny. But some others hate a Jack Bauer joke, and think a Wikipedia dup is FA. If I find a feature article to be funny then I will laugh, not because I never got one, but because I never will if I stick to my guns. Which I plan to do. And some people will like it, and even vote for it. Anyway, I hope you like Blue-ringed octopus, the dick-headed BASTARD!!!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 12:54, Mar 24

Zim! Is this your news? Did you know there is an outsider-insider article on "them" named ITSCON.

We took it as far as we could go, before some one cried, "biased!" --- so we stopped, and by that point it was in pretty good shape, as I never got so much help on any article as Spike give on ITSCON.. and for that reason alone I'm sure it's a good article. If you know anything about this group then you gotta read ITSCON. BTW: In Itscon article the "name" Krishna is never mentioned, really no names are mentioned).

edit Hey Zim, I think we need to first classify UnNews categories

  • So I've been thinking on the whole templates/categories thing for UnNews a LOT lately and (you've see my brain storming page) the main conclusions I've come to is there needs to be a consensus on what the main UnNews categories and subcategories are before we begin building a section header and footer identifier templates.

As far as I know the only categories consistently put forth to users are the 7+ country/continent identifiers:

<!-- Add a category here to help promote your article, if you wish. The categories linked from the UnNews main page are [[Category:Antarctica]], [[Category:Africa]], [[Category:Asia]], [[Category:East Asia]], [[Category:North America]], [[Category:Middle East]], [[Category:Central America]], [[Category:South America]]. Just copy and paste the one(s) you think apply(ies) in the space following this arrow.-->

although it seems as if there is a HUGE pool of (poorly organized) little or semi-used templates in existence.

I think we should set some actual UnNews categories in stone, and then allow people to make up there own sub categories on the fly if they like with a "UnNews_MAINSECTION_Categories:SUBSECTION" type of thing... I think we can do it anyway, I'll do more research.

Great work so far, dude. Yeah, I hate those geographical "departments". They're so vague and unhelpful. How can you expect to find bat fuck insane writing that way?

Is this MAINSECTION_Categories:SUBSECTION approach used elsewhere, and if so, where?

edit My silly collection is, like, a freakin' mountain already

Zim! Dude! Have you seen my collection of pages and Unnews that stuck in Uncyclopedia? Over the 100 mark. And I worked really hard on all of em. I donno, is 102 a lot, or somethin'? Published UnNews stories is 62 in last couple months. Whew!

BTW: Yesterday I was such a bastard that I voted NO on VFH on an article. It was sloppy, incomplete, rambling, long-winded (I HATE looooooong jokes), it had no conclusion, was obviously NOT by an "insider" and within 30 seconds I was spotting obvious typos. And on top of everything else it was boring and NOT funny! So I thought, If THIS gets FA, after all my 100+ articles didn't, then the only logical conclusion is that there is no illogical conclusion. Being inconclusive is kinda like a dog chasing its tail. Wouldn't you disagree!? I've been writing perfect articles that are part of Wikipedia since well before Uncyclopedia existed, and most of my Unycyclopedia articles are very much that style, but funny (to me and some people) though too radical for conservatives, etc., who can't see the humor for their prejudices. So I find it hard to do both a good job and also please all sides at the same time. If I do well, then some will dislike. It was same in my music. Some critics say best in the world, some think crap. And we're on many top 10 and top 100 Greatest lists, including being #6 in Record Collector Magazines book, "100 Greatest Psychedelic Records" ahead of Hendrix and Pink Floyd (Yardbirds are #5, #1 was Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows") -- we're up there. So some critics who count love our music, even it's 45 years old. WYB: Most of our almost 60,000 song plays on MySpace are fans between ages of 18 to 25. Yet some people hate it. So I always found the middle ground too blah! To please everyone I must be, like, blah. Jeez, dude, no waves means no surfing to me! Because one side or the other will be against if I'm not blah. And, man, blah sucks in my book (literally ref amazon).

Like I think mixing Joe Pesci with his famous characters makes a way better article than the blah facts, which are better in Wikipedia. Although I look after about 20 Wikipedia articles I basically stopped writing for them just when they really like me and switched to the nut house or "toy wikipedia" - and it's much more fun with you guys!

I don't know if you liked the Mecca Vice UnNews, but I spoofed both Miami Vice + the Saudi Religious Police Mutaween (also a radical article), and then took it all the way as a complete article. Here it is in case you would like to read Mecca Vice (The TV Show). Sorry for the long rap! Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 09:51, Apr 8

Not my talk page, but...This can't go anywhere without illustrations. Cloyingly cute, sappy photos of cuddly bunnies. Lots of 'em. Tie-dyed, psychedelic bunnies. Also, you are broaching the Lawrence Summers/Thomas Sowell concept that the just-under-the-surface antagonism toward bunnies reflects superficial hatred of every member of the class. Without being that analytical, the article could use a sentence or two more of armchair psychology before you wrap it up. If you put it on UnNews, it seems like not just {{Original}} but to be labeled an Editorial. Spıke ¬ 18:47 8-Apr-10

Image bit is clear to me, first of all - been a member since 2008 more or less. Thanks for the good words too. The "armchair psychology" -bit is ambiguous to me here... how about an example? Feel free to add it straight to the article, I'll change it if it goes against my intention too much. Thanks for the feedback. And - editorial? Do add what is necessary for that, it's far quicker that way, and I'll know the next time. Editorial sounds correct, right, now that the word connected in my brain. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 19:30, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Done; tags added, in comments, to start, as recommended by UnNews:Style sec. 2.3; and a third paragraph extends the article in the direction I mentioned--you'll want to edit it, and I don't know if you want to keep it in the second person. Spıke ¬ 20:32 8-Apr-10

Sorry, but no; you missed the fact that the piece is meant as pro-bunny propaganda, and therefore it needs the Anti-bunny people as the cause of the trouble this "you" it addresses wants to cause to bunnies in his ignorance.

edit Dis also...

...looks like an UnNews piece to me (a bit short for mainspace but the subject is such that it clearly works best as it is now). Our idea is to postpone both until Necropaxx gets his anti-bunny piece out, so that the series rolls out smoothly - maybe a couple of days at least between articles. Any other ideas for placement? Since it will be a part of the Fluffy bunny-series in general, there will be some kind of serial-links later. In that sense, any spot is OK. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 04:43, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

It's not very newsy in its current form, but it may be a starting place for a future Philosophy Portal. Chers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 16:16, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
True, not newsy that way. It is clearly a magazine-type short article though, a column, rather than being encyclopedic. The writer writes for newspapers and different mags in the real world, that's why. Any additional ideas? Could any section of UnNews publish stories written in this form (even if it's not strictly news)? Would make for variety. Wait a sec - how about creating a "Column" section for UnNews, without any particular restrictions on subject, area, or anything else? It could be just a text Column: (name of story) in some corner. I for one would make a far better columnist than a reporter, since I like to pick up causes and twist the fuck out of them. Columns could be, for one thing, used to highlight issues in mainspace articles - well, that's what SoS is partly about, but in a different order. They would make for Uncritical journalism, where Uncyclopedia as a source would be praised and criticised. And whatnot. (Shit I'm full. I'm glad I never have the munchies for abstention-related reasons - I would soon burst.)-- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 18:40, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
Would "Editorial" be what I'm talking about above? Column, somehow, makes it less conspicuous - could that be added as an UnNews category (template)? Editorial somehow seems to define the tone for a whole issue. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 19:12, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

There should be a place for this stuff; I don't know whether there is, yet. It is sort of UnAdvocacy--a linked set of opinion pieces "in the style of" various opinion-makers. Biggest clash in trying to hang it off an UnNews coat-hook is that most UnNews pieces are drive-by humor based on a passing article in the news. Your stuff is deeper. Also, it doesn't exactly fit the phenomenon now known as Summit of Spin, as what corporate or partisan interest is going to have a motive to bias a debate of cuddly bunnies? It is indeed magazine-like. Spıke ¬ 21:08 9-Apr-10

edit Reorg UnNews to make room for columns/letters

OK - this ran out a bit but I have such a clear picture of what could be done - so please read this, both of you:

The shorty short if you're busy: UnNews (being a newspaper), with two minor adjustments, would make an ideal forum for part of the serials SoS will be producing. Those adjustments - Column and Letters to the editor - would also make UnNews more variable, to attract different writers.

  • The whole SoS idea could use a far wider range of media, this is why I'm asking if a Column could be set up in UnNews. It would not be a SoS thing but an UnNews thing, and SoS would only provide stuff for it when it benefits our clients truth. Wouldn't need to be daily either, if there are no contributors. I think it could be a weekly or bi-weekly thing, in practice. (I can also write fly-by articles for it, if you want me to get involved and if other contributors are not found. I mean, other stuff than what SoS tries to push. I'll write a short article once a week, no sweat. I like to write goal-oriented stuff rather than just parodying things offhand.) Writing in that style is not compatible with encyclopedias, so the good effect of the column-like article is pretty much lost in mainspace. I figure that since there are so many articles written totally out of encyclopedic style, quite a few writers could be persuaded to become columnists. This would improve the overall image of the site in general; writers' energy would be used to better fit the framework - with a minor adjustment to the framework. I think with a few changes, a typical first-person article could be turned into a column. In fact, the recent feature Why?:Do I need to provide this? was a column. (Certainly not encyclopedic -and yet it hit front page. But this is beside the point.)
  • Another thing is that I never intended SoS to be visible to the imaginary "general public", of course, but just an entity to propagate things behind the setup of Uncyc. But I think you got that. Also also: idea is not to write columns only, but different kinds of articles. Necropaxx's article on Bunnies will be a clear newspiece, and as you notice, Fluffy Bunnies as the saviours of infrastructure is a study someone has tampered with a bit. The UnNews (and if you pick up the column idea) part of it is ostensibly the tip of the iceberg the general audience sees, it is just there to lead the attentive reader down paths that might reward him. The tone and jokes of the serials really depend on the subject and on each individual contributor, so I figure no two will be similar.
  • Of course I'm asking for the column to be set up for propaganda purposes - but as you can see, it would have other uses as well. SoS doesn't churn out propaganda at that rate. My point for trying to get this thing going in existing UncycloMedia rather than just linking the articles is, of course, that that's the way it is done in the real world. (Psst - I left $100 000 in a bag, in the garbage can outside the newsroom).
  • On SoS clients since it came up: anyone or anything can be a SoS client. In the case of Bunnies, I guess it would be the bunnies themselves. I don't know. Someone just contacted us with a wad of bills in their hand a cause I saw worth fighting for. (Necropaxx had the idea they have a sinister agenda - that's why the furious campaigning for them. I'm guessing they are planning to steal all our carrots, but it might be something even more horrible.) In this case, in other words, the client is a political pressure group.

-- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 05:26, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Also, a Letters to the editor-section would do UnNews a world of good. Arguments are always fun. They wouldn't be letters to the actual editors, naturally, but aimed against the appearing news. Not on real grounds, of course. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 06:51, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, we've discussed Letters to the Editor before, and it seems we're all getting at the same concept. Another thought: Don't cling to the "client" concept if it gets in the way. When SoS succeeds in developing a comedy model, there needn't always be a cynical conspiracy behind it, unless it helps the model. By the way, fluffy bunnies are not the client! The beneficiary of a government or corporate program, whether school-children, collectors of welfare, or polar bears, are never the ones humping the program! They all have a bit of pride! Spıke ¬ 10:16 10-Apr-10
You might be mistaken about Fluffy Bunnies. I don't think they are in any need of any government backing, judging by the amount of cash they gave us. Also, the "client"-concept really is what makes SoS work. Without a client, there is no campaign. Of course, if someone wants to write something else in the name of SoS, I don't mind. And, if a campaign springs just one good standalone article, that's that. I'm flexible. The client is just a vehicle to get something going.

OK then, how about the Column-idea? I really would write columns on other subjects too, parodying real word or, as I said, picking stuff on Uncyc to bring up for a bit of scrutiny. One per week, since columns can be short, would be no problem. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 10:43, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

As well as giving this section a header that you implicitly requested, I now defer back to the host. There's just one current obstacle to this reorg: You have caught UnNews in the middle of an existing reorg to better present what we already have (see the incomplete section navigation bar at the top of the UnNews page). Two, in fact, counting the effort of Happytimes to improve the categorization of articles. You might create a mock-up, like User:SPIKE/Sports Page, for eventual linking to the nav bar. Spıke ¬ 11:02 10-Apr-10
OK, I'll do that. I just wanted to find out if you like the idea. Columns coming right up. What else... how to organize it? I thought about making a Category:UnNews Column - would this look like the form? Then the nav bar would point to the most recent one.
Whether or not it looks like my Sports Page, surely the nav bar should not point to the most recent one, but to a presentation of all the columns on a particular model, or even all recent columns plus all recent letters. A scheme to link UnNews stories to "Letters to the Editor" on that story should be developed. Happytimes at the moment is Vice President in charge of Categories. Got your ears on? Spıke ¬ 11:17 10-Apr-10
And, um, a template for the columns? Do I just copy/paste/rename an existing UnNews template? -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 11:12, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
(I am listening, but now have a headache....) Happytimes
I'd suggest you create a template {{UnNews Column}} derived from the existing {{UnNews Editorial}}. Spıke ¬ 11:19 10-Apr-10
OK, will do. How about advertising the columnist spots to those who like to write articles in a not-so-encyclopedic style? I (and Somdomite) can take care of some but I wouldn't mind if there were others. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 11:26, April 10, 2010 (UTC)
My first reaction is that that is the job of the Village Dump. In fact, there are several jobs available at UnNews, such as Sports Editor. Perhaps we need a listing of all of them. I now defer back to the Chief. Spıke ¬ 11:33 10-Apr-10
There is a Category:UnColumns. So I'll just link that to the column template. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 11:36, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

edit East Side Story

Hey Zim, I had a story for today, but the situation has become so dire around me that, out of respect for the gravaty of the day I better pass. Essentionally a completely corrupt rich gangster who was ousted from "purchased" political power 4 years ago has hired many peasants (rent-a-mob) to invade the city, attack the Army and Police, and has tried to create a class war. This time around the Govt., police and Army are the good guys, but they are too afraid of hurting people. Yet the "reds" are armed and ready to kill. So unless the army and police really get serious they won't win, which will mean anarchy. Tear Gas ain't gonna cut it. If they do get serious there will be a lot of dead reds. So far 140 people are hurt and fighting is taking place in many areas right now. Just out my window the sound of guns and bombs and sirens. Damn, why is it always the goddamn "reds"? More tomorrow.

Hi Zim, cause of the all-pervasive nature of www and sensitive situation in Thailand I almost wish I could write you this in an email, only seen by you. Much like my big message which was my meaning to rap with you, as a friend. Anyway I live in the Big Mango, City of Angels. Bottom line here: Now the Army and police and government are the good guys, but this ousted fugitive former corrupt PM Thaksin has his rent-a-mob of upcountry hicks thinking they're in a class war. But really his rent-a-mob, called the "reds" are just bloody terrible bullies and misguided. You see, Thaksin's plan was to become richest in Thailand by corruption, dismantle the royalty, turn the Kingdom into a "republic" which HIM as president, and then join the New World Order, which (as you know) is in the works. So he was ousted by the Army in 2006, then convicted and ran away and is living as a fugitive outside the country. He got to power by vote buying, and that ain't democracy. Ever since he has been paying protesters to make trouble for years, Today was the worst. Thank God for the army. They're trying to fight this unarmed without hurting the protesters. But the protesters have real guns and bombs. So in self defense it turned into a shootout.
Can you imagine where you are living that a former PM ousted and convicted of massive corruption and now fugitive, hired a private army of poor people and tried to openly over-throw the government? Unthinkable. The government tried everything to end it peacefully, but the REDS were breaking every law in the book. And brought this city of 15 mil to a stand-still. Being mega bullies and ruining the party. And worst is that it's not over. Because the Army was met with deadly force by the "peaceful unarmed protesters" (Reds) who are trying to start a civil class war. What these hicks don't remember is they're not poor because of the rich, they are poor because they are poor. Just like all other poor people. But here they are actually way better off than else where. But highly armed rent-a-mobs can be bloody rude, and they are just hired criminals in fact. But the army were unable to dislodge them in spite of 600+ injuries and 15 deaths. And the Reds, while forcing the Government to act, are still well-paid defiant. All this trouble over one bad guy!
I'm a bit in shock myself, and lost my sense of humor, which I hope returns soon. Then after one week from now must I go long-haul to visit my family in USA and will also be absent from news for a short while as I travel with my son and recover jet lag. That is, provided the plane makes it. But with the blessings of the great Uncyclopedia, I plan to make it. Hey, stick to your New Year resolution, dude!

edit Platypus

Thanks for the help but: I would have liked to keep the leader in bold like it was in my version. I see it is not the usual UnNews format, but it looked better with the way the next chapter begins. Also, the "sensation news" header was there partly because of the same reason. I can live with those changes but could you please leave the images the way they are now? There's a slight resemblance between Väyrynen and the koala, which is not as apparent if they are too far from each other. Also the text is easier to look at if the images don't cut it like the way they did. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 14:34, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Oh yes and - the next subject. Do you want to join in the next series? There would be a spot most suitable for an American news reporter in it. Meet me in chat one of these days please, I log on there quite a lot. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 14:50, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

To the contrary, cheers to the Chief for trying to make this article look a little bit like news. That's the trade-off here: You get a wider audience, for a couple days, than you would with a permanent article where you'd have to wait for readers to stumble across it--but you have to support the institutional goal of making UnNews pretend to be a legitimate Internet news source! There is nothing about the concept that the platypus was a false claim of the Australian government that could not have been done through the "news" motif. I have been supportive of the new Columns format but have yet to see it deliver any benefit and don't know whether it will be more than a big inside joke. Even Funnybony has harnessed his skill to our Mule Team, mostly keying off real news stories now, and is making progress making it read like news rather than burlesque.

Spike, I know you stalk Zim's talk page, but you don't need to try and explain Zim's edits, especially when you're addressing changes that weren't very relevant to the changes Multiliteralist was talking about. I know you're just trying to be helpful, but it's coming off as kind of pompous and invasive. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 19:09 Apr 12 2010
Well, Spike: in case you didn't know it, I'm pretty quick to take offense. My articles are not typo-ridden, they are mostly at least OK to read, often funny... you can run UnNews but you will not steer my writing to suit your taste, or whatever you think is acceptable UnNews. If you don't like it the way it comes out, write them yourself. I have put my real-world things off for too long anyway. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 19:55, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Sir Multi-kulti: I hadn't noticed that Paavo looks like a koala... oh, wait, I see it now! The reasons for my edit were to make it fit into UnNews; this may be more suited as a UnColumn, but I'll have to give it some thought. As for the pics, I'll leave them the way you like, but normally we like to spread them out.

I liked the article because it's really strange, and appeals to my sense of humor. I added the category about "grammatical errors" because there were a few sentences which sounded odd, at least to my American ears. Adding that category is actually a compliment; it means that it's as good as Hyena blazing, and adds the charm of the piece. Do not change it please! Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 21:21, April 12, 2010 (UTC)

Oh, I never meant it as a column: I would have used the Column-template otherwise. The columns have a different tone to the writing: challenging, complaining, and so forth. I understand you want to have the newses look identical as far as formatting goes, and will write the next one(s) so that that the first chapter doesn't look like a lead, if the formatting really is that strict. As you notice, in the beginning of this one there is slight repetition, and also now both the first and the second chapter begin like a first chapter. The bold font would have remedied that, marking the first chapter clearly as a lead. It's no big deal to me as long as all the text is there - but since papers often do it the way I did, I thought it would be OK. Also, I was too lazy to change enough of the article to make it look good the other way. Yeah, many sentences may sound odd since obviously some grammatical finnishisms slip in now and then. I thought it was something like that. Also, I'm not offended by anything you did - just wanted to make my reasons clear. Glad you liked it, more is to come sooner or later!
By the way - now that we are on the subject of columns - I think many of the OK writers who write mainspace articles in narrative styles might make good columnists. I don't have anyone in particular in mind, but I might ask around when I see stuff that is good but clearly misplaced in main space. Idea is: a narrative text could be formatted into a column with some really minor changes, and also columns don't need to be long. I have the feeling many writers draw their articles out to fill the "requirements" of a mainspace article. At times, they could perhaps write almost the same thing to work perfectly well as a column, with more punch to it since they could leave it shorter. I don't mean to suggest people fill the place with narrative columns (they can become tedious too), but they do work better than narrative main space articles. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 04:20, April 13, 2010 (UTC)

edit Old business

As mentioned in Section 18.1 of UnNews:Newsroom, I've nominated for VFD one of the two Categories for articles that ought not suffer drive-by improvement by new editors. The categories are similar, long-winded, and Category names should not crack wise. You may wish to make your views known on VFD.

And I still need to know the answer you and Mr.N. reached: Is it you, or the author, responsible for updating {{RecentUnNews}}? Spıke ¬ 20:34 26-Apr-10

An editor (like me) or a responsible registered user (like you and certain others) is certainly capable. I think it should be considered less a venue for a writer to whore their particular article, and more a way for UnNews to whore itself. In other words, hands off to n00bs. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 22:14, April 26, 2010 (UTC)

I hear you. Then the calls for a greater push for said n00bs to edit {{RecentUnNews}} should be ignored. There is no reference to {{RecentUnNews}} left in the Style Guide or in the Letter From the Chief, but there is (under the blank field) in Help:How to write an UnNews article--Should that be taken out?

For UnNews Audio, as de-facto keeper of {{RecentUnNewsAudio}}, I come down on the opposite side; except for article-by-article examination (every how many hours?) there is no other way to find out that an audio has been recorded unless even n00bs hump their own articles there.

GlobalTourniquet's story today about the soccer-playing abortion doctor is too long; could you rename it to align with the UnNews Audio title?

I'm sorry, am I missing something here? Renaming the UnNews piece to meet the audio's name? ~Jewriken.GIF 22:22, April 27, 2010 (UTC)

I claim that UnNews:Abortion doctor who scored own-goal in international match draws cartoon of Muhammed to achieve moronic death threat trifecta is too long for a headline, and I suggest the same name I gave to the audio version: UnNews:Soccer-playing abortion doctor goes for the death-threat trifecta. Spıke ¬ 22:46 27-Apr-10

Did you consider talking with the author rather than claim claims and go directly to Zim? ~Jewriken.GIF 22:51, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
No I didn't; I assumed Zim as an admin could do it simply. I renamed a few during his absence, and probably left redirects all over the place. And GlobalTourniquet's post-edit of the article has a change summary that indicates that he felt bound by the title he had chosen (so he changed the text instead). Spıke ¬ 22:57 27-Apr-10
I think you assumed too much in this case and it would have been much better to go and have a chat with the author rather than make the decision for him, even if it's implied in his edit summary. If he really wanted to change the name, he could have done a simple move page himself and he is veteran enough to know how to do so. It's one thing to change a name due to a misspell, it's another because it doesn't fit with your concept of how a title should look like. ~Jewriken.GIF 23:02, April 27, 2010 (UTC)
I think adjusting UnNews headlines is an unremarkable editorial function. But I'll take my suggestion to GlobalTourniquet. Spıke ¬ 23:16 27-Apr-10

You know, I have one article whose title is even longer. It's funny, the entire time I was chewing on that one I was thinking to myself, "Self, the entire joke is in your headline. The news story is all like filler made up to justify the joke in the headline. What up with that?" Then I said, "Shut up, other self." Then I said, "I certainly will not. Why not use this for an UnMagazine line? That way you don't have to write the story." Then I thought about it and said "No, it's too long for UnMag. Besides, I have another story with an even longer headline. UnNews it is." Then I said, "Why not shorten the headline and tell the joke in the story." I thought about that and decided I didn't like it. The joke is better in the headline. So be italic and chop the bitch up if it will improve this wiki if only by a small bit. Oh, and btw, I do know how to change an UnNews title - I was just telling a silly joke in that anno, you know, celebrating my own laziness - I could have gone with Mo or Mu, and I chose Mu simply because it was easier.
