edit Welcome!

Hello, B1KWikis, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please 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.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:B1KWikis/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If the current colonization doesn't suit your fancy, then browse our rewrite and idea categories. We have lots of articles just sitting around for someone to improve, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. Again, welcome! 

I'm not sure if the quality police will approve of your entry, but I find it rather amusing. Welcome to Uncyclopedia and please get to work, comrade enjoy your stay.--User:Jokerman/sig 00:25, April 26, 2011 (UTC)

Aye; problem is, you can't just dump a draft and expect other people to clean it up. Sometimes they do, but more often the only other folks to edit it'll just wind up making it worse... this ain't like Wikipedia - articles generally have specific ideas to them, and usually the original creators are the ones that know those best, and thus would have the best idea where they're going as well as the ability to fine-tune them. Also, people are a really lazy, here. Please, keeps working, read the formatting guides and whatnot, and make it something people will want to read, not something pleading for them to fix it for you. It does have potential. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:55, 26 April 2011

Hey Lyrithya, thanks for fixing the namespace on my umm, script thing... I was relying on someone with a little more experience to give a tip. The preceding unsigned comment was added by B1KWikis (talk • contribs)

If you want advices, perhaps a review would help. Also, don't forget to sign your comments, mon. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:17, 26 April 2011

Regarding your comment on my talk page yes, those numbers essentially signify how much has been added or removed from an article. It makes spotting vandalism far easier when we are checking recent changes. --ChiefjusticeWii 07:43, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

Ok, thanks for the info --B1K-- 21:24, May 8, 2011 (UTC)

edit Ehhhh

Don't mind me, but what the hell do all these sub-pages actually do? --Snowman111 Butlerstar Frosty dah snowguy contribs KUN PLEB Big GREEN Button Big red button 04:00, May 29, 2011 (UTC)

I came here to ask the same thing, actually. You have a shit-ton subpages that you're always adding to and I'm confused as to what you're actually doing with them. Fill us in, please!  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:06 May 31, 2011

edit Here's an example of why Uncyclopedia is lacking in the moderation department

B1K here, coming back 4 years later after re-stumbling on this site to post a short story about what happened that got me banned, and as a result, what's wrong with this website's power-abusive moderation team. This will be my final post here, so there will be no need to IP block me.

Basically, I got banned for editing pages in the user space allotted to me in this site, as a personal sandbox. You know, the userspace that I have every right to use, as per signing up for this site.

Apparently, it's against some (made-up) rule to use your own userspace to spam edits. Honing your understanding of MediaWiki formatting? Fuck that, you're banned!

I don't know about the other moderators, but one of them definitely abuses his power. A moderator by the name of Ljlego--the one who banned me for using my own userspace. This is something that would never conceivably happen in Wikipedia, Wikia, Encyclopedia Dramatica, or any similar site thereof. Why? Because they repsect their userbase.

The thing about users is that they control your traffic. If you alienate your users, you lose traffic. Hell, they might even come back with sockpuppet accounts and anti-ban proxy servers to haunt you for your actions, making edits to pages that discourage potential users from showing the site patronage. I've seen it happen before on Wikipedia, too many times to count. That's why so many of their pages are edit-protected. Guys, Ljlego is doing damage to your site's well-being. This is the first time in 4 years that I've been to this site. And I don't plan on coming back any time soon. What does that mean for ads? Donations? Sure, you can blow me off as insignificant, since I'm just one person, but this is about principle. We, your users, are the people that keep your site alive. You should show us some damn respect.

In the end, I was banned for a nonsense reason, by an overzealous moderator who abuses his power, and knew that I didn't know enough about the site's infrastructure to get a hold of the moderators who are actually sensible. Since I was never a popular user, obviously no one has actually SEEN the ludicrous ban message. Here, I'll paste it for you in full, so everyone can read it:

  • 03:51, June 1, 2011 Ljlego (talk | contribs) blocked B1KWikis (talk | contribs) with an expiry time of infinite (33 non-userspace edits since you joined. Bug me when you want to do something constructive.) <-- this is not a valid reason

The "non-userspace edits" he's referring to are the few light edits I made to articles to correct their sloppy grammar, make their formatting better, etc. And I learned how to make those formatting edits by experimenting in my user-space. The point of pushing the template system to its limits, trying every formatting trick in the book, and experimenting with "wiki-programming", was to learn how to use the system so that I could make contributions to this site and Wikipedia, and Ljlego banned me before I could implement.

So basically, if you don't make nonsense pages lacking in cohesive content that just make random non-jokes and aren't funny, you don't deserve to have an account on this site. Even though I made 33 edits, which is pretty damn good for the short period of time I was here.

So yeah, sure sounds like a solid policy! Oh wait, that's nowhere to be found in the rules. Hmm...

-B1KWikis, signing off. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)

Happily, the website is now operated by a completely different "power-abusive moderation team." I personally do not ban users for using their own userspace to learn, but even your side of the story states that you did nothing useful to others in 33 edits here, some of them apparently requiring attention from the Admins of that era. Based on your own need to tell your own story, assert your right to use this website, and abuse other Uncyclopedians, even after four years have passed, I would not welcome you back.
