edit Summer holiday

Hello and welcome to my talkpage! I am on holiday, so I probably won't be able to answer you immediately after you post a message, but you can still ask for or about anything and I will surely answer when I come back. Meanwhile, you can do anything you wish with any of my pages, articles or anything else, or even start a chess match at User:Anton199/Games. See you soon! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:02, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for your reviews and comments regarding CIPET. I hope I can improve the quality further. Ironman24 (talk) 05:42, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

You are welcome! I would love to see it on VFH! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 08:38, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

edit 2st

2sthmc2014
You did it.

Your article UnBooks:Psychedelic Rosie and Her Coat of Many Colors

was 2nd best which means of all of the losers you are number 1

And that's what competitions are all about.--ShabiDOO / MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 17:48, Jul 2

Hello and thank you! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:30, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

edit A letter about Megan Fox

I have to be honest when I read the title I feared that I may be reading something my sense of humour was not going to appreciate but it is a masterpiece my friend - congratulations! Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:10, July 11, 2014 (UTC)

Wow! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 08:38, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

edit Welcome back!

I hope you are "tanned, rested, and ready" (as was said of Richard Nixon) to liven up this joint. If you are still on vacation and merely ducked into a cyber-café, never mind. Spıke ¬ 11:42 28-Jul-14

Hi Spike! How are you? Where's everyone else? No, I am actually back (and for the good, I hope). There are so many articles I need to work on, that I think I won't be able to take another Uncyclopedia holiday, even if I wished to take one (which I don't wish, by the way). So back to editing, I guess! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:29, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
Return of the Russian! Welcome back Anton.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:40, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Glad to get your nose back to the grindstone. I am in my annual ten-week baseball mardi gras where there is nightly high-speed Internet plus continual distractions from actually using it. Have you met Amélie Wilde? Spıke ¬ 13:44 28-Jul-14

Nein. Non, I mean. But I've seen your discussion on the topic of a promising article I haven't yet read. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:02, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Romartus! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:09, July 28, 2014 (UTC)

I'm on my hols at the moment. Internet is provided by holding my phone out of the window nearest the holiday home that actually has wi-fi for half a minute before an internet page loads. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:44, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
Yuck! I paid for such abuse last year! Thanks for enduring it and staying in contact. Spıke ¬ 14:52 29-Jul-14
You must have very long arms! Actually, we should start another collaboration, if you get back from wherever you are now, because all of the articles we have worked on together have been featured (hooray!). If you wish, of course. As for now, enjoy yourself!

By the way, have you noticed how Spike starts using indentation, when he has access to high-speed Internet! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:19, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

The reason I usually pick a margin and stick with it is not the lack of speed of my internet but the lack of width of my monitors. The reason I didn't, above, is that I was replying to Scott's digression and not continuing the original conversation. The reason I don't, just now, is that you took it. Spıke ¬ 18:59 29-Jul-14

edit Scam letter

I have featured this for the 30th July. One question. Did you mean spell 'mesage' like that or did you really mean message as I can't see any other spelling errors like that? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:03, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

I guess it was accidental, but I might be wrong, because it's Puppy who wrote that. It's basically his article - what I did was to change the page's formatting and to write responses to all the scam letters that are there. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:01, July 30, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnSignpost

The UnSignpost news feed column appears not to be working as it will only show the first comment below it and not the rest. Could you take a look, thanks? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:18, August 4, 2014 (UTC)

Done, although I am not sure that those who are not fans of the block log will understand it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:49, August 4, 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I am indebted. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:12, August 7, 2014 (UTC)

edit Awards on your front door

They were well overdue and you'd clearly won both so I took the liberty of awarding them. Well done mate! Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:36, August 5, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you very much! “If one were to build the house of happiness, the largest space would be the waiting room,” as Jules Renard once said. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:09, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
The largest space for me would be one's den. How was the holiday? Pleasant? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:44, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it was great, thank you! Brittany is indeed very hospitable! Or was it Normandy? How was yours? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:17, August 5, 2014 (UTC)
As long as it wasn't Gascony. Mine was fine thank you. A restful experience. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:21, August 6, 2014 (UTC)
I hope I'll be able to say the same thing about my summer when it's over! Do you have anything against Gascony? The most famous musketeer was born there. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:00, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
Gascony, Gascony! Scrooge of the Normans, it should be called. Brittany and Normandy have close ties to Britain but Gascony is as French as real France itself. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:06, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
What do you call "real France" then? There is Ile-de-France (with Paris in the middle) and the rest are independent regions. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:11, August 7, 2014 (UTC)
Real France are all the bits of France that have never been under the English Crown. For those bits that have come under the English Crown, are simply occupied territory that the French rebel regime controls and will one day be returned to their rightful owners. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:37, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
Well, and what about the half-German Alsace-Lorraine? And the Spanish south-west? And the Alpes regions, which are so different from the rest of France, so that they can be considered a different country? Real France is probably a tiny region then. Or you can take another approach and say that this mix of cultures and history is what makes up the real France. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:55, August 10, 2014 (UTC)
Nonsense, nonsense. They are French as much as Ile-de-France is French. Catalonia in Spain is basically French and thanks to Charlemagne, Germany is also basically France. Have you not read and/or seen Henry V? "No King of England, if not King of France." It would be a bit hard to hold up a claim to all of France so we just pretend he meant the English French parts and not the real French parts.

edit HowTo:Repair a broken smartphone‎

Even in the HowTo: space, I would lighten up on the first person. This at times is not so much a guy writing a HowTo: but a guy chatting with his mother about how it felt to write a HowTo:. In my opinion, the main reason to insert yourself so far into an article (or break any other canon rule) is to take advantage of the fact that the reader is not expecting it in the least. Spıke ¬ 23:31 9-Aug-14

Do you mean I should strike him with that at the beginning or keep the general tone for as long as possible? I am currently working on it with user Argylesocks on the other side of the channel and I hope to bring the changes here when it's ready! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:47, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

I mean you should drop self-referencing unless there is a damned good reason to use it. If there is, starting in the Intro may inform the reader of your comedy strategy, but might also remove the element of surprise. If you know this article wasn't complete, you should not have nominated it. Nor if you are acting as a proxy for a user offsite. Spıke ¬ 13:20 10-Aug-14

Oh, no. I thought it was complete. Then Argylesocks started working on it, and so it's now a collaboration. I still think it's a readable prequel to HowTo:Fry an egg (and hence, the first person), but it's improving elsewhere and I don't want to keep on copying and pasting it while it changes. I'll do it once it's ready there.

I am also not working as a proxy, and my "I hope" was because I am not entirely sure he'll consent to me bringing the changes here. But I hope he does. And, well if not, then I guess this one is still readable, though it might not be featured. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:49, August 10, 2014 (UTC)

Done! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:06, August 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit Netflix

Can you do something with this? It would be good to have an article on this, but this page's {{ICU}} has expired and it is still ranty and listy. Spıke ¬ 14:16 22-Aug-14

Sure! I'll take a look, even though you should be more of an expert on this. (Reading Wikipedia) Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:20, August 22, 2014 (UTC)

I am famously not an expert on either movies or renting them, but I'll post-edit you. Ooh, a collaboration! Spıke ¬ 14:25 22-Aug-14

I am in first with Cultural effects based on the section at Wikipedia. Spıke ¬ 14:49 22-Aug-14

Wow, you did a lot! Thanks for editing my additions! Good night! I am going to sleep now, but I'll come back tomorrow. Looking at the time - today actually. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 00:31, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

Sleep??? Where are your priorities Spıke ¬ 00:39 23-Aug-14

Good morning! (???) The reason you can't make the horse photo bigger is that it is already there at full-size. You might be able to find a better photo, as the Mister Ed show is not a factor, but only that it be man-plus-horse. Spıke ¬ 16:38 23-Aug-14

Ah, ok. No, it's actually good evening. Just couldn't get to the article before. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:35, August 23, 2014 (UTC)

It's actually: You slept in! probably. I found a few more small bits of the Wikipedia article (on Qwikster and the A.D.A.) to adapt, but I'm about done with it now. Spıke ¬ 17:39 23-Aug-14

I liked the Mister Ed show picture and replaced it with a similar photo, that I think is as funny. Qwikster could be adapted into the a section, but I didn't get what A.D.A. stood for. Currently working on Netflix (horror TV series) about an experience of a Netflix user, but I can't imagine who could produce it. Not Flicka certainly? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 22:45, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
You've done this already?! I completed my section as well. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 00:04, August 24, 2014 (UTC)
P.S. I'm done. VFH? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 00:39, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

Sure. However, I don't see what the real-life basis of "Netflix (horror TV series)" is. Saying essentially, "Netflix is an awful corporation; and now, dear reader, here is an awful life" is to me a big non sequitur. Spıke ¬ 02:33 24-Aug-14

edit RotM

Your nomination was a nice bit of praise that I appreciate; but mostly, thanks for again renewing the awards process, which is the obvious way to make Uncyclopedia more social that actually boosts the creation of content! (Meanwhile, I probably did another "review" in the paragraph immediately preceding....) Spıke ¬ 23:41 24-Aug-14

You are welcome! Concerning Netflix, I noticed your comments but I am still thinking about how to use it for actual editing. I also prefer saying "Did it!" than "Will do it (some time in near or distant future)". Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 23:52, August 24, 2014 (UTC)

Yikes! the words of a budding impresario who has not yet found the ideal used-car dealership to employ him! Spıke ¬ 23:58 24-Aug-14

Done! Is it better now? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 00:37, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

I did a copy-edit of it. I think that, by this section, the horse Flicka (my attempt to bend the early TV show My Friend Flicka to the name of the company) has exceeded its usefulness. Your section is useful in conveying the perverseness of Netflix's encouragement of TV addiction, but the current text doesn't quite overcome my problem that it's not based on anything real (or at Wikipedia) the way the rest of the article is. Separately, the final paragraph reads like an UnNews. (Would that be a Review?) Spıke ¬ 01:03 25-Aug-14

Yes. Don't know what to do about the fact that it's made-up, but I removed Flicka as a producer and deleted the UnNews-like sentence. I am going to nominate it on VFH now, because I think overall the article is ready and your parts are great! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:36, August 25, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnSignpost:Article/HMC, PLS and other abbreviations

Why don't you see if you can find a comedy strategy for this article other than an Uncyclopedian who has closed his account across Wikia, a link to that user's page, the Terms of Use, the goings-on on other wikis, an invitation for readers to try to find said other wikis, and the resulting effect on "the spirits of pro-reuniting Uncyclopedians," that is, on you? Otherwise, it is a small part news, small part humor, and large part advocacy. The news is your Forum inventorying our past competitions and the promise of new future ones, and there is plenty to make fun of there! Spıke ¬ 17:47 27-Aug-14
