edit Welcome!


"Some welcome Jaffa Cakes for you!"

Hello Altair and Welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like it here and decide to stay.

Useful guides and reference for your contributions:

I hope you enjoy the site and being an Uncyclopedian. Always remember to sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

If you want to start an article of your own it is usually best to start it within your namespace, for example, User:Skid 40145/Article about stuff. If you do this you can edit it at your leisure and move it over into the mainspace when it’s done. To start an article in the mainspace attach this template - {{construction}} to your work, so other Users will know you'll be back to finish it.

Should you need any help, do not hesitate to ask me on my talk page or ask at the Village Dump Forum. You can also add the following: {{help}} to this page along with a message and someone will come along and help you if they can. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced writers straight to you. Simply put {{adoptme}} on your Userpage to join. Once again welcome to the site.--Sycamore (Talk) 20:30, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

you were almost gone for 15 whole minutes!!!! :<

Also, could you please tell me how to make my user boxes form a coluymn like yours without including the text--Altair 23:24, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

I wish i Could, but I forget. Sean the wiry, bony, and thin 23:42, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

That's okay but it seems to be taking a while to send messages to each other using the talk page--Altair 23:43, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

Also when you get the chance, go to my user page and click HERE in the Puppetmaster userbox. You will be quite amused. This message is also for anyone else who happen to visit my page, as well.--Altair 23:49, 30 July 2008 (UTC)

edit Userboxes

I made this simple table for you, you can chnege the userboxes easily and add more should you wish, most people usually use some form of this:)--Sycamore (Talk) 09:41, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice and i'll try it out--Altair 14:40, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Thank you for the advice on the userboxes and i hope you get the award--Altair 14:43, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks there, I hope it helps tidy things up:)--Sycamore (Talk) 16:11, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

edit Userboxes

Can you please tell me how to make a custom userbox for my user page?--Altair 19:31, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

I saw the template on the general userbox list but didn't know how to insert a picture.--Altair 19:50, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

The best way is create a new one is to steal the code form one of the exiting userboxes Like this:

<div style="float:left; clear:left> {|cellspacing="0" style="width: 240px; background: #FFFFBB; border: 1px solid #AA8822" | style="width:45px;height:45px;background:white;text-align:center;font-size:11pt" | <span class="plainlinks">[[Image:Guitar-22px.jpg|22px]]</span> | style="font-size:8pt;padding:4pt;line-height:1.25em" | This user plays '''[[guitar|guitar]]''' because it attracts more '''[[women|groupies]]''', and gets more solos than the '''[[bassist|bass]]'''. |}

The result looks like this:

Guitar-22px This user plays guitar because it attracts more groupies, and gets more solos than the bass.

If you take out the Nowiki bits and chnege the fields and image you shoud be able o have one thats similar to the others:)--Sycamore (Talk) 20:46, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks again for the advice, i wanted to leave my own legacy on the site. Out of curiosity, how many people have you chased around with blue genitalia and a spear? Anyway thanks again for the help.--Altair 22:16, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

edit Re:Userbox

I followed your advice on making the userbox, but ended up with the thumbnail all messed up on. Check out my user page and see how it is now, and what i'm going for. Could you show me how to make it so that the picture fit in right with the text box, or even just edit it on my user page? I wanted the picture to be like User over 9000 in size and proportions. If you could help out, i would really appreciate it and i promise to stop bothering you for stupid stuff like this until i am become the ruler of uncylopedia.--Altair 00:16, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

You did alright, you just added a little too much in the image set up: [[Image:Sycamore|Thumb|right|250px|caption|somthing]]: this will create an image suitable for an article with frame and a caption, however for a user box the px needs to be very low and and not have any alignment (left/right) or thumb. It should be done like this: [[Image:Sycamore|60px]]. Hope this helps:)--Sycamore (Talk) 10:25, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks alot for telling me what i did wrong and all the other stuff i've asked for. And, like i said, from now on i'll try not to bother you about stuff you probably don't care too much about anyway.--Altair 17:55, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Sig!

Okay, so you wanted me to show you how to make it. Well first of all you need to create this page. This page will be your sig (however we'll talk about time being added and stuff later). On this page go wild...but not to wild, to create a nice sig. Obviously, you can change it at any time. Your sig should ideally have a link to your userpage, talkpage and maybe a link to your contributions. There aren't many sig laws - just don't make it really big or really small and make sure it has a link to your userpage.

Once you've created your sig at that page let me know and I'll go and have a little look at it and offer any help and then tell you how to start using it. :-) - [08:09 2 August] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie

edit Hemophilia

Prety much what you said, expland the sections, links, Images (important) and pull the whole thing together, Should you not have time to complete the article, I suggest creating User:Altair/Hemophilia This manes that it is not in the mainspace and will not be deleted. Copy and paste your work over, and when its done you can get a review and get some further tips to make it even better;)--Sycamore (Talk) 12:35, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

OMG! Happy third image!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 21:58 Aug 02, 2008

Thanks for the compliment, i appreciate it, unless your insulting me, in which case i'll go to my room and cry.--Altair 22:26, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Altair's article

Thanks alot for telling me what i did wrong and all the other stuff i've asked for. And, like i said, from now on i'll try not to bother you about stuff you probably don't too much about anyway.--Altair 17:55, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

It was no problem, and you can come around anytime, it does not bother me:)--Sycamore (Talk) 18:43, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Guess what, i'm not asking for advice this time. Just wanted your opinion on an article i'm still writing. You can view it Hemophilia. Also, What do i have to do to my article to get rid of that notice that says it will be deleted in 7 days: just expand some of the sections or what? Oh, and i did vote for you for Reviewer for the month, sorry you didn't win. Please respond on my talkpage whenever you got the time.--Altair 00:06, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for checking out my page on hemophilia. i'll do what you said and move it to my userpage.--Altair 15:53, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Cool--Sycamore (Talk) 15:53, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Your reviews

The only time i saw a review was on a friend's computer and i did not know how he viewed them. Would you please tell me.--Altair 21:37, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Content Boxes

Could you tell me how to put the content box in an article. BTW, how do you like my sig.-- Altair-the EagleIcons-flag-inDeadMenTellNoTalesDLRLanyardPin2006 (talk to me) 00:31, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

For Pee review, you go here: Uncyclopedia:Pee Review when your article is reviewed it will be in the complete secton linked to at the top of the page (or here, Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Reviewed Pee). I think you mean infoboxes and the ones that are used are all kept here: Infoboxes. Your sig looks alright and none of the code is spilling over, so well done. My first ones made a right mess:)--Sycamore (Talk) 11:08, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Hemophilia

Well i did use a template and it did take me fifteen minutes. I wanted to know if you could take another look at my article( imoved it back to mainspace) and tell me what else i could do with it. Also, will the sign at the beginning of the page go away by itself, do i need to contact an admin about it, or something like that. If you could, i would really apreciate it. Also, thanks for getting rid of some of my red links on my page before it got a warning, I've doing that so much on Things to do that i forgot to do that on my own page. If you get chance to check it out, please reply on my talk page.-- Altair-the EagleIcons-flag-inDeadMenTellNoTalesDLRLanyardPin2006 (talk to me) 20:41, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

The best I can advise is to add this: {{PeeReview}} to your article and submit it to Pee review. you're likely to get tips on how to improve it to the extent where you can remove the construction tag without the article being put up for deletion. For my opinion I would say that it looks alright and it's getting there and it looks to be a very decent first article.--Sycamore (Talk) 21:04, 3 August 2008 (UTC)
O.K. i'll do that. I still got a couple of things to do on it and then i'll put it up for review.-- Altair-the EagleIcons-flag-inDeadMenTellNoTalesDLRLanyardPin2006 (talk to me) 23:08, 3 August 2008 (UTC)

Oh, o.k., but still i didn't know whether we were going to talk on my page or yours. Oh, and please use indents.-- Altair-the EagleIcons-flag-inDeadMenTellNoTalesDLRLanyardPin2006 (talk to me) 18:15, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Guys, this isn't going to develop into a flamewar, here? I hope? What's going on? - [18:19 6 August] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie

No, i'm just trying to figure out how to have a chat on my user page without having to jump all over the place from his page to mine.-- Altair-the EagleIcons-flag-inDeadMenTellNoTalesDLRLanyardPin2006 (talk to me) 18:30, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Pee Review

Hey Altair, thanks for that review! I'm not sure if you know, but we keep a list of all reviews ever done, here. Your review was a little on the short side and wasn't as in-depth as it could have been. Before you write your next review, why not have a look through our guidelines to see what makes a good review. Thanks. - [18:19 6 August] Sir FSt Don MafiaHatBlack.gif Yettie

Blech-wedding Rory would like to thank you for voting!
"That was a smart move, kid" he says implying that anything else would not be smart and may wind you up underneath a particularly heavy doll's house.
Oh well. Anyway, thanks for voting for on this!
