Hi! I've undone your change to this article. Articles don't need to start with quotes, unless they're really funny; and Oscar Wilde quotes are overdone, and ought to relate to Wilde and to the article in question. For this and other tips at writing comedy, see our guide at How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid. Happy editing! 15:13 8-Mar-13
edit Flying Spaghetti Monster and lists
You have made many good edits and grammar corrections, but on today's edit to this article, I have undone you again, as you added a list.
As a technical point, the way to add lists is to precede each item with an asterisk, with no double-spacing inbetween.
- If you edit
- this section, you'll see
- the code that produced this bulleted list.
But there is a comedy issue too, and that is that every good item in a list depends on something being funny merely by being placed on a page. I don't care if you've devised the funniest pun in the world; write a funny paragraph and hide the pun in it as a super-zinger, surrounded by context. Don't just put the pun in a list and think it's as funny as it could be without actual work on your part. The problem with these lists is that endless anonymous editors come along and think they can add just one thing. Cheers!20:16 15-Mar-13
