Thank you for the positive feedback

Thank you very much, it's nice to be commended on my first writings! And to answer your question, no, the uppercase S to lowercase s was not deliberate - I've corrected it though. And thank you for creating a talk page for me too - I didn't know where to start before :)

You are welcome! Keep going and happy editing! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:32, September 4, 2013 (UTC)

Ummm....what on earth was that "Anton takes Portugal" thing about. April fools jokes only happen on 1st April not in September!! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:24, September 7, 2013 (UTC)

There is a small possibility that it is actually the 1st of April in some place in the Universe. Concerning the edit, I took the Portugal back, as I thought the action of taking it in the first place was just violent. But I gave it back, didn't I? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:36, September 7, 2013 (UTC)
Yes Anton, but the question is, "When are you going to give the Ukraine back?" Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:00, September 8, 2013 (UTC)
Ukraine is already back. I mean I am carrying it in my backpack and I always forget to take it out. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 08:48, September 8, 2013 (UTC)

HowTo:Break and Enter

Probably requires a little more proofing - I picked up a couple of issues with a quick read-through. I've removed the first header as it has a better format that way IMO. Overall a decent job though.                               Puppy's talk page10:45 08 Sep 2013

Here is an English style lesson regarding, "Never ever enter [through] owner's bedroom: you are here to be creative, not to cause some mental disorder."
  • There is a parallelism problem, as all three items want "through" and it is only included in the first.
  • I can't tell whether "some" mental disorder means "a little" mental disorder or "an unspecified" mental disorder. This without getting into how entering someone's home through their bedroom (window) would cause mental disorder (neurosis? psychosis?). It is more like "strife" or "drama." I'd write: "through the owner's bedroom: You are here to fine-tune your skill, not to perturb anyone." (Which is also zany, as breaking into his house will surely perturb him anyway.) Spıke ¬ 22:54 8-Sep-13
Don't like the use of the word “perturb” personally. I'd suggest “…skill, not to cause undue distress.” But that's just a personal preference.                               Puppy's talk page11:38 08 Sep 2013
You understand that Anton himself is fast asleep through all this.... Spıke ¬ 00:01 9-Sep-13
Ok, sure, thank you for the nomination and comments! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 07:37, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

Rollback gadgets

I deleted your Forum because, even with its minimum of provocation, such pages have led to piss-fights as to which site is better. The bottom line is that we make different default decisions from other websites. That some other website makes a different decision is not a good argument as to what we should do. If something is poorly documented here and is better documented elsewhere, please steal and adapt the documentation. If you insist, I'll reinstate your Forum.

We do indeed have JavaScript widgets for the Patrol and Rollback operations that do what you want, but you must turn on JavaScript and enable the widget. The Rollback one is documented in Section 4 of UN:HAX. The Patrol one is mentioned in Section 7.2 of User talk:Furry. Spıke ¬ 17:27 9-Sep-13

PS--Undid my deletion. That doesn't mean you can't give these things a really descriptive name. You now have a customer there. Spıke ¬ 19:03 9-Sep-13

Thanks but I did not mean to say that we ought to change bevause they did, I wanted to combine all the main technical issues I've seen on this site (and sometimes I noticed them through comparison) in one forum. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:51, September 9, 2013 (UTC)

ScottPat's talk page

Thanks for that. You read my mind. I wanted to sensor that bit but didn't know and couldn't be bothered to find out how to! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:35, September 10, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:40, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Duh

I just voted for Brittany, which I thought I had voted for already. Apologies about the delay. On a different but similar matter, maybe you can weigh in on Oz, which has been upon VFH for a long time and you haven't voted on. Please give it a read, I've been polishing and adding to it at a furious rate, like an animal caught in a bear trap and knowing the bear is coming back soon. Aleister 19:21 11-9-'13

p.s. As for the end of the Beatles, they ended when Magical Mystery Tour was released. Horrible album and movie.
Fortunately, I haven't seen the movie! But yeah, the songs are not that good. However, even in their best albums something not very good occurs. For example, Revolution 9. And I voted for Oz, very nice work and thanks for Brittany! The nomination was almost closed! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:57, September 12, 2013 (UTC)

User talk:Torurules

With apologies, I reacted to an edit conflict with you here by overriding your edit. I know something about the Boston Bruins and realized that what he was doing was primarily replacing truth with falsehood. Therefore, I was able to offer more specific advice. Spıke ¬ 18:19 13-Sep-13

Oh, that's fine. I am very ignorant about what concerns all the sport teams and the World Cups. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:21, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

Lord Stanley's Cup (the North American hockey prize) is hardly a World Cup. Unlike the World Series. Spıke ¬ 18:30 13-Sep-13

See? I did not even notice it was not a World Cup. And Torurules keeps on editing the article and is maybe even rewriting it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:40, September 13, 2013 (UTC)

WUT THE HATE??

Some user called False Mike messed up my article by translating my first ever article into French, and tried to move other pages and translate them into French as well. That Camouflage rubber duck article was my precious page, and I was waiting for myself to improve the article. Newman66 Visit my table here! Contributions My works 13:49, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

He is a recurrence of the I FUCKING LOVE DICKS vandal. He registered his account one week earlier so his account had matured and the Move button was visible, which is part of his attack. He moved thousands of pages earlier this year, requiring more expertise than I have, but Wikia has since changed the site to slow down large-scale attacks. I believe I restored your article. Please do not lose any sleep over the fact that your contributions here may be vandalized and may require repair, by you or others. Spıke ¬ 13:55 14-Sep-13
I know that there were other spammers I've seen throughout my time as Newman66, such as Moe Lester 69 and that English spammer from June and July. Newman66 Visit my table here! Contributions My works 15:06, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I am glad the problem is solved. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:07, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
The problem is never solved, as Uncyclopedia has what we might term a "lax immigration policy." Again, though, we have stepped up enforcement of misconduct. Also, there is the thing sociologists call the "broken-window phenomenon": Neighborhoods where the effects of past vandalism are evident inherently invite future vandalism. This motivates our attempts to keep Uncyclopedia tidy (including deleting listcruft from articles). Your "English spammer" I might better describe as an anti-English spammer! Spıke ¬ 15:23 14-Sep-13
I called him an "English-spammer" because he spams hate against the Brits. Newman66 Visit my table here! Contributions My works 15:40, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
I have not thought about past vandalism influencing a future one. That's very interesting. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:59, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
For God sake, not all us Brits are English sason-acks! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:22, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

I noticed something...

You used a lot of unneccassary markup in User talk:Tamerial horror. This can be easily simulated with the {{User:DungeonSiegeAddict510/superainbow}} template. Usage will be demonstrated.

UnSygnposte Delieverie

Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:00, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Do it!

Click on your new UnSignpost and tell me what you think. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:23, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Very cool! Thank you for making this issue! If you don't object, I deleted a lot of span tags which did not seem to do anything. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:28, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
No objections, your honour. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:29, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

Now I remember

Simsie was waiting to encounter that banned user on the Webs and offer him a supervised visit in which he could bring his signature file back into compliance. Spıke ¬ 17:55 21-Sep-13

That's cool but I have not seen him visit. Or maybe Simsie has not found him yet? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 21:16, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

USP header

When I make a major cock-up and neglect to add a parameter in a template that allows you to change the date, you should probably tell me.                               Puppy's talk page12:07 22 Sep 2013

Change the date in the USP header? We have not had any problems of this kind. By the way, thanks for reverting the vandal on my userpage (it was not that unfunny, by the way) and do you know what is happening to Cursive? I think that it just stops working from time to time. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:12, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, thank you! I think we forgot about this. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:15, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Cursive? I'm assuming it's a font that you've used. Fonts have to be installed on your browser/computer to be able to be used. What a don't appears as on one browser is not always going to work on another browser. That's why I tend to use several different font families in my CSS.
If that's not the issue then I have no idea.                               Puppy's talk page12:30 22 Sep 2013
Oh, ok. Thank you! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:35, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

New news

I would not rush this UnSignpost out the door. I would not give publicity to either of the Darthpedia twins, as their only recent presence has been to wrestle over their signatures and not to write funny stuff. In particular, the ban of Madclaw is under review behind the scenes, as I've mentioned. The report on hawks-versus-doves at VFD is good and might encourage participation.

Regarding the Wikia site visit, I now have email into the attendees asking whether they'd be willing that I report on this, based on an email Romartus sent out last month. Spıke ¬ 13:46 22-Sep-13

Just to clarify Spike that this isn't an UnSignpost but Anton's idea of a newspage that is constantly updated so we aren't in a hurry to get any newspapers out there. I can't wiat to hear a report from the Lion's den and feel free to submit it as an UnSignpost article yourself. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:56, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Denza has probably been the most well-known user-in-joke since Aimsplode on both Uncyclopedias and Madclaw was needed to back up the point even more. Finally, Denza tries to get as much publicity as he can and denying him that right can be able to light him up even more, while Madclaw won't be unblocked until this story is archived.
Yes, it will be very cool if we have some information about wikia. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:02, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

In my personal opinion, the lot of them aren't here to help us build but only to party, act out, and inject drama about continual unimpeded access despite their misbehavior. It would be just as good an in-joke, and a payback too, if the UnSignpost described their antics without ever naming them. Spıke ¬ 14:11 22-Sep-13

(Before edit-conflict) We have a whole article on wikia!! All you need to know is that wikia are very nice to us and invented the wonderful language of newspeak! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:13, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
I tried to make it funny. And I know what wikia is, I want to know how it looks like from the inside, how many guards are there, where they are and when they switch, and finally what way does the director's secretary take when he/she leaves the office. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:22, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Be careful what you say my friend. These are dangerous times and if I wasn't so leniant then I would have told that nice man in the dark suit I just had a chat with back then that you wanted to visit room 101 as well. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:27, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
I wanted to? Isn't it you? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:35, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
You wanted to what? I never said anything! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:41, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, fine, then we will have to take someone else.
P.S. Have you read the page? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:35, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
What page? This page does not exist. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:51, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
These are the words of a sane man! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:55, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Forum:Happy birthday TheHappySpaceman!

Sorry, Spike, I was just wondering why this forum got deleted. Llwy-ar-lawr (on the other site) pointed out that there was no reason in the deletion summary. So I visited QVFD and saw that it was Denza who put it there. But that was rather incivil, as even though the forum did not need to be in Village Dump, it was really TheHappySpaceman's birthday. It is probably too late to do anything right now but I want to know your opinion. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:54, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Please. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:54, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Spaceman repeatedly opened Forums whose purpose was not the business of the website but self-promotion. Simsilikesims convinced me that an appropriate response was to move them to BHOP, which both she and I did, once over the revert of Spaceman. In one case where I did so and he protested that I should have wished him Happy Birthday, I deleted the page. Denza was not a factor.
Llwy is banned from this site essentially for a short career of continual gratuitous drama. One of the consequences of a ban is that one loses one's ability to affect life on the site, personally or through proxies. Llwy has no dog in this fight except her desire to continue injecting drama.
You are following in the footsteps of Denza and trying to endear yourself at another website by being a go-between on this website, even when it helps defeat the purpose of a ban (something I have described to Denza as "acquiring friends and playing them against one another"). I would prefer that you focus on comedy and not inter-site politics. Spıke ¬ 11:52 23-Sep-13
I agree. The politics of this site seem to me more complicated than Medieval European politics/pre-WW1 politics. I think the best advice for this site is to prove that we can create decent comedy that everyone enjoys and stick to our purpose thus completely destroying the need for the huge political brawls. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:05, September 23, 2013 (UTC)
Spike, I am afraid you misunderstand me. It would not be very convincing to say that I am not here to cause drama or to make an break alliances or to become a Uncyclopolitician, as it will be only me saying it, but I will still say it. The fact that I am also present at the fork makes me hear many users' comments about different things and when I hear something interesting or something which I would know more about it, I can come here and ask questions accordingly. And I hope that's not what you meant by "go-between". Also, on two connected topics: it is perfectly normal tha Llwy-ar-lawr, after being blocked and criticised here, begins questioning our actions and criticising ourselves in return (I will not go in details of her criticising us at the very beginning, and I always think that criticism should be encouraged, as it helps to notice many mistakes, unless it becomes offending). Second, I did not want to say you were wrong, I have noticed recently how impolitely Denza was to some users and the fact that on the fork, as a reason for deleting the forum, he said: "He [TheHappySpaceman] is a noob, so nobody cares" (even if it was in a joking manner), and the fact that it was him who placed the page at QVFD aroused my suspicions.
P.S. With the busy year on, I almost cannot focuse on writing comedy and try to do something minor, such as help some users out. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:32, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

'lo Mr. Anton

Hi. I've finally answered you at the voting page for James Bevel's face in a cloud, and because of you I saw that my instructions on HowTo:Find the face weren't clear, and have hopefully fixed that. Thanks. I've done a good editaddit writing polish of the page, please check it our again if you have a hundred moments or so. Aleister 25-9

Ok, sure. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:21, September 25, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks! You are a gentleman and a scholar (or a quinterman and a scowler). I'll go back and do some more on the page, just to up its funny a little more. May faces in clouds follow you day and night, and all the good things they bring come to you. Aleister 25-9

Good work! but, you know, it's customary for the author to clean up the page before VFD spares its life and gives the author the Save. Spıke ¬ 13:32 5-Oct-13

But this is more original. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:44, October 5, 2013 (UTC)

United States Congress

With apologies, I reverted your addition of a Mark Twain quotation. He was notorious for cynical wisecracks about Congress and politicians, but the point of Uncyclopedia is to write new comedy, not to catalog historical quotations. Mnbvcxz crusaded this spring to deprecate initial quotations in favor of just jumping in with original comedy of our own--He noted that no "encyclopedia," especially Wikipedia, starts articles this way--so if a quotation has no greater point than to remind readers that Twain disliked Congress, it should go. Spıke ¬ 15:29 6-Oct-13

Responding to you with the use of a quotation:
“If you can't find a quotation that is a tasty aperitif for the article, it would be better off with none.”
I thought I did find it, but if you think I didn't (and you know a lot more than me on the subject of the US Congress), than I am fine with it being reverted. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:34, October 6, 2013 (UTC)
Anton...your quote is a lot funnier than the current one. I think it was a good edit.--ShabiDOO 02:28, October 8, 2013 (UTC)

Wise but true: Attributing the old Congress/Progress pun to Oscar Wilde is equally unenticing. (I moved this down under History.) Spıke ¬ 13:20 10-Oct-13

Used to

Anton, there is an English lesson for you at "Napoleonic Wars". Sometimes "to" is not a preposition but a second word of a two-word idiom that reads poorly if the words are separated. It may have been Churchill who called something an outrage "up with which we will not put" but it stands as one of the most awkward sentences ever spoken (by splitting up the idiom "put up with"). I rephrased the sentence generally, as the phrase in question is a digression that could just as easily be given with the single word "signature" (meaning thing the British are "used to," or here, which defines them). Spıke ¬ 13:01 10-Oct-13

Thanks, so I ought to have put two "to"s? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:06, October 10, 2013 (UTC)

Certainly not. "To which they are used to" is just wrong. I state on my user page that I am an American proud to end a sentence with a preposition, but if that reads wrong to you, just pick a completely different way to say it (as I did, for a different reason). The sentence with two "to"s ends with a preposition anyway. Spıke ¬ 13:12 10-Oct-13

Napoleonic Wars

Your changes have helped Anton but we need to seriously focus on some funny humour to put in the article that isn't propped up by real facts. Something ridiculous, that makes people laugh out loud rather than just smile. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:11, October 16, 2013 (UTC)

I hope they will help someone. You are welcome to respond to any of the forums. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:12, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
I predicted that this would happen, Anton. A word of advice my friend is stick to funny article writing and not beaurocracy. I myself am also responsible for the recent political brawls but have decided to involve myself as little as I can. The fact that it has brought out some users who barely ever write to shout at each other shows that no value will come of this. Write an Unsignpost or an article again and remember what the purpose of Uncyclopedia is. By doing this we may all follow your example and let life carry on. Surely we should make and not break friends here? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:56, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
The problem with Drama is that it tends to tear community apart rather than bring it together. It is better if we work together rather than criticize each other. That goes for criticizing the admins as well, since we are only human. For this same reason, I try not to criticize users unless I think it will help them grow as a writer and/or member of the community. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:38, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
I myself feel the same way. However, there are many users who don't. And the problem is that we try to shut the drama which is even worse than trying to reconcile people or to talk to them. Whatever, I don't think there is a way to make everything funny, so I will writ the UnSignpost and won't really go into details. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:41, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
One principle which does need to be taken into consideration when facing a potential drama is don't feed the trolls. While we have to address genuine concern from users, we also have a tendency to have issues raised by individual users that are created issues purely for the purpose of creating divisiveness. Shutting down trolling is less damaging at times than allowing it to escalate by responding - adding fuel to a fire, so to speak.                               Puppy's talk page10:02 21 Oct 2013
Which isn't a response to your essays, but your concern about “shutting down”.                               Puppy's talk page10:04 21 Oct 2013
I have not noticed any trolls here. Even those who wanted to take very serious measures were completely serious about this. Just saying. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:53, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

To reply to your query elsewhere, yes, I did review all of Jihadrian's contributions before permabanning him, including his welcome of KendraDancy, whom I did not ban merely out of guilt-by-association, but I bet he is not a bona fide contributor either.

Now back to the topic above, you did not notice any trolls? Both my recent bans and your recent essays were surely seen as further evidence of distraction or vulnerability. When two strangers arrive and propose that we turn against one another, we do not have a duty to assume good faith or conduct a vote.

"Don't feed the trolls" means do more than try to look open and welcoming; consider whether a newbie writing to fan the flames or to seek attention will be rewarded by your response. A separate problem is diverting third parties from writing articles to holding court on the nature of governance. I am not writing funny stuff when I am busy explaining my actions to you. Spıke ¬ 11:37 21-Oct-13

Spike, have you at least read my first forum? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:41, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

USP sign-up

Hey. Had this discussion a while ago. It was decided we keep user on USP sign-up for at least 3 months inactivity before we remove them. It means they can stay in the loop if they want to even if they don't regularly edit. There's a forum somewhere about it, but I'm too lazy to look.                               Puppy's talk page07:52 21 Oct 2013

Thanks for informing us. I needed that info when I started! I didn't have a clue how UnSignpost was run so I made my own rules and just removed anyone inactive. Wish they'd have written the old rules down in an easy place to find! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:04, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
Probably should go through the old forums at some stage and write down some of the more pertinent decisions that were made. Sounds like work though.                               Puppy's talk page08:17 21 Oct 2013
Yep. Would help the community though. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:21, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
I did go through something like this at one stage, and found half a dozen different forums with conflicting outcomes. That, and the time it would have taken to put these things together far outweighed the benefits. Running on a system of organised chaos seems to work for us for the most part.                               Puppy's talk page08:39 21 Oct 2013
Somehow I enjoy this wonderful world of Uncyclopedia politics. If only every politician did their work experience here and could study the faults in our bearaucracy then we would have a much better political system in place in government. I just gave up last night and went back to article writing, what I enjoy most about the place. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 21:28, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
It has been amazingly busy on the content side today! All it took was the false promise of de-opping an Admin, combined with a system bug giving the false promise of regular users being able to block at will. This suggests the lead story for the next UnSignpost, as well as campaigns of deception that might inspire production in some future month. (Oops, there I go discussing Signpost news on a user page again, but surely all of you will see it.) Spıke ¬ 21:43 21-Oct-13
Thanks for the idea. I already have an article idea for the most recent set of killings at VFD. What an anarchist state this site has turned into, should we put in stricter deleting control. Your message will be replicated in our press room for the sake of sakeness. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 22:04, October 21, 2013 (UTC)
How about an interview? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:13, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Puppy, Chief himself said that if someone wants to address him, he should use his e-mail. But whatever, I will re-add everyone on the list and finish the delivery. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:16, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Edits to talk page go through to e-mail. I mainly mention this as during one of my times where I was unable to be an active member I still liked to get the reminder that things were happening while I was gone. I'd get the email that my talk page had been edited by a new USP, and I'd go and read it.
Of course, I spam Chief daily with videos from youtube of fangirls meeting One Direction, so he can't be missing us too much.                               Puppy's talk page09:38 22 Oct 2013

Music

Speaking of One Direction, I was looking at the same edits you looked at, and decided not to revert as they didn't do much damage to the article. Based on that I don't know if this article should remain as is or if we need to look at either deletion or bulldozer rewrite. What are your thoughts?                               Puppy's talk page09:38 22 Oct 2013

Bulldozer rewrite. The IP edits did not do much damage, as the mention of Your Mom was not worse than Nicki Minaj and the only thing he added was "#WorldWarZ" and his idea of a rewrite of Template:Wikipedia; I would leave them if they would be finished but they don't go well with the rest of the text, no matter how bad it is.

UnSignpost's Future

I have been thinking Anton about our wonderful newspaper and have realised three main problems lately:

  1. The news we display on each bi-weekly newspaper is usually out of date by one or two weeks.
  2. We can barely produce a newspaper every two weeks as it requires a lot of effort and we are busy.
  3. Sending people newspapers takes time (the postal service is poor now that it has been half-privatised).
  4. We focus on the newspaper or the newspage but not both.

Here is my solution - I have said this before as an idea but now I believe it must happen. Scrap the newspapers. They take too long and too much effort to write and are out of date. Instead simply use Uncyclopedia:UnSignpost/News. Replace UnSignpost's current main page with that. Have it set out like a BBC news web page (or whatever equivalent you read) and have a top story in top-left and older stories on right hand-side with forums and VFH results near bottom. Update this constantly but the good thing is it will only need one new article every so often and will only need tweaking a bit and not writing the whole web page every two weeks!

Bring these changes to everyone's attention on a forum. If people want to find out UnSignpost news they click on UnSignpost in bar on left-hand side. To make sure everyone still reads we send out a flyer with interesting headlines on it that they can click on which links to the Newspage.

I am not asking you to do this, I can do it all. Help would be appreciated. I am asking your consent to allow me to do this as we are joint chiefs. I think it will improve our quality of news more and be a more efficient system. I will make the improvements tonight if you allow me to do so. So what do you think of these proposed changes? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:35, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

I give you the permission to screw the UnSignpost in whatever way you would like to do it. I will try to help you in this wonderful affair. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:39, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Great reasoning, by the way. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:40, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the support mate. I'll be onto it some point tis afternoon or tomorrow. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:48, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
I like the delivery, as much as I hate delivering. I did create a script many moons ago that did the delivery on my behalf - I could potentially create that script again, as soon as I have time and/or inclination.                               Puppy's talk page10:53 22 Oct 2013
Thanks Puppy. That would be useful for the flyers. I just want to have a newspage instead of newspapers to make it more convenient for us to update and so that news on UnSignpost is actually in-date. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:15, October 22, 2013 (UTC)
The UnSignpost is the heartbeat of Uncyclopedia! Yes, I know that artificial pacemakers are a breakthrough of technology, but it would be nice to hear that heartbeat. Nicer in fact than three new articles on British military history, even if they all make the main page. We have completely neglected the monthly (!!!) award voting, and I can envisage the editor at Wikipedia, whom we certainly know by a different name, again referring to a "seemingly abandoned" website and citing this as proof. Do pursue labor-saving devices, but keep this fixture, which is as central to the site as when y'all stepped forward to keep it going. Spıke ¬ 11:37 22-Oct-13
Spike due to lack of time I have not disclosed my full plans here. Just trust me. I can make a more efficient system from everyone's point of view, still keep the thing going. Have it better quality updated than it is now and have updates on talk pages. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:44, October 22, 2013 (UTC)

Scott, me neither I did not have enough time to express my opinion but here are some comments: we can fill the UnSignpost/News page with new articles and when it is full, we can make an UnSignpost. This would be mopre systematic. If suddenly we do not have time to make the newspaper or flyer, we can just archive stuff (I did this once: Uncyclopedia:UnSignpost/News:September 2013; but the archive is not complete) and wait for other news.

Spike: the UnSignpost was designed as a source for talkpage spam. And you call it 'heartbeat of Uncyclopedia'? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:32, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

I disagree Anton. Why don't we just make UnSignpost/news into the main page (which I have done and cannot be changed) and update it like UnSignpost/news.) Read the forums for an idea of how my idea has changed - there will still be newspaper deliveries however not regularly. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:44, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
I wrote that before I saw that the UN:UNN got deleted. I meant if we fill up the page, we can make an UnSignpost, right? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:50, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah basically. Every two weeks/month/when we feel like it we pick top most recent articles and create UnSignpost newspaper. Only pick articles that are in-date. If an article never makes it to a newspaper that is fine as long as it appears on front page of UnSignpost. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:53, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

UnSignpost

Tell me what you think of the improvements, Anton. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:28, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry!

Anton I do not like the idea of the "Vague" picture. It looks too cheap. Don't put pictures in the title top part. I shall remove both for now. If you want to make an advert add it in the main part and design a spoof one yourself I think. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:40, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Sure. Great improvements. What do you think of what I just said above? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:43, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
Replied. Read the forums Anton. This is much more efficient, easier to update and still includes newspaper deliveries. Spike and Puppy are behind it. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:45, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
Oh, so all of you three were behind it since the beginning?! *Bang* Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:51, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
Don't think I forgot about the July Coup. I came back to find my beautiful newspaper all changed. I needed revenge, REVENGE!!!!!! And this was so perfect, so wonderful. Now UnSignpost is ruined for ever! There will never again be out-of-date articles, I never again will have to waste my evening creating a newspaper. WAHAHAHA!! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:55, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
And this time...(manic chuckle)...my little Russian friend...they're on my side!!! MY SIDE!!! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:58, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
That's right ever since those Russian actors got to play the baddies in the James Bond films, I've been unemployed. What has happened to the good old British baddies like Blofelt? Well we are back and we are looking for revenge! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:07, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
I cannot respond. I am *bang* Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:56, October 23, 2013 (UTC)

Puppy's Picture

How do you think I feel? This is the second time a revamped USP I contributed to has been re-revamped (or is that re-re-revamped?) And I'm proud of that Vague picture. It's the one I did that Bizzeebeever improved, getting me my 0.5 of my 1.5 Featured pictures! (And I'm 2X PotM. Don't look for the logic.)                               Puppy's talk page02:02 23 Oct 2013

Oh sorry didn't look at picture in detail. It was a spoof of an advert? If it was then Anton or someone may insert it into the main body of the main page on the right. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:05, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
It was a parody of a “Vogue” cover. Actually the first part of an article I haven't written yet.                               Puppy's talk page02:12 23 Oct 2013
I will reinsert it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 14:54, October 23, 2013 (UTC)
