About Ask Cthulhu

Are you the person who ran Ask Cthulhu? I ask because I am making a complementary column, called Ask Dr. Hypochondriac. The template, as you can see, is basically finished, complete with a real email address to send questions to. I have just one problem: how am I supposed to start out? Exactly how did Ask Cthulhu receive its first questions? I have a whole bunch of other questions I'm too lazy to put into words right now. Hopefully you can answer them. Gratefully, CUN RA Talk to me _ 01:39, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

I um... kinda cheated to start out. I started by asking people for questions on IRC. Then someone did it for me. But that may help you in some way... at least, I hope it does.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 02:50, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for answering, but I'm afraid it doesn't. I don't know how to work IRC, I tried yesterday and could make neither heads nor tails of it. And I'm talking about just signing on, too. So, if you don't mind, and as long as we're on the subject, could tell me how the *%$#! IRC works? --CUN RA Talk to me _ 04:05, 3 November 2007 (UTC)
Sure! If you've got an IRC program (I recommend X-Chat), then you just connect to Freenode. Once in freenode, you connect to the #uncyclopedia channel. To do this, type "/join #uncyclopedia" in the little area you can type in at the bottom. If you can get the CGI-IRC working at Uncyclopedia:Chat, it takes care of the first few steps for you. As far as a username, just pick random ones until one works. There are no rules as far as names you can use except that it can't already be taken. Well, if there are other rules, I don't know them.  :)--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 10:32, 3 November 2007 (UTC)

People's Republic of China

Some fucking idiot messed things up big time. This is how the article use to look with my last edit and my many contributions to a developing article:

http://uncyclopedia.org/index.php?title=People%27s_Republic_of_China&diff=2716816&oldid=2716786

Now go to the page; some complete pro-Communist-China douchebag edited the page to make THE ENTIRE THING SERIOUS, ABSOLUTELY SERIOUS AND BORING. Yes, I'm serious, it looks like it's straight out of - gasp - WIKIPEDIA! No joke.

So I went to the edit page to show this guy what-for, and realized uncyclopedia doesn't have an "undo" option like wikipedia. There is way too much crap to wade through in order to fix this gigantic mess he created. Can you handle this asshole? You seem like a responsible administrator who knows what to do with douchebags like this.--PericlesofAthens 01:22, 9 January 2008 (UTC)

For that whole "Brad hates America" thing. It appears to have had some blowback. I, having hung around the nuttier, big "C" Conservative sites (like WorldNetDaily and Townhall.com) for too long (doing research for Uncyclopedia pages, believe it or not), thought it was funny. "X hates America" is about as common as "Darwin to Hitler" and crass biblical literalism in places like that. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:12, 24 July 2008 (UTC)

I was actually considering posting an invitation on the political site I go to, to help get some more writers for UnNews.

There was never any official forum (like a "MyObama" or whatever for Obama) that was on his website, but the one I linked you to has always been the most active and sort of the "official" grassroots one, where money bombs were organized and such. After the primaries it's shifted to other related grassroots projects, like money bombs for congressional candidates, opposing the bailout, etc. I don't think there was ever really any other prominent ones. ~Sir Rangeley Icons-flag-us GUN WotM UotM EGA +S (talk) 02:21, 24 October 2008 (UTC)

As for the sitrep: wikia changed our domain to drive up views for wikia.com for whatever reason. We didn't like that. They did it anyway. Now, I think we're aiming for a) getting them to put it back how it was, or b) releasing the project so it can be hosted independently.

----Pleb- Sawblade5 [block me!] ( yell | FAQ | I did this ) 09:18, 25 December 2008 (UTC)

Damn Right!

Santa is watching you shower, <insert name here>

Dear Brad,

It's nice to be speaking to you again. It's been awhile.

About a week ago, whilst aimlessly browsing this great internet of ours, I decided to take my quarterly glance at the old uncyclopedia and noticed, much to my dismay, that the old uncyclopedia had become the new uncyclopedia.wikia.com. For the last few days I've been perusing the dump, trying to establish the details of just what exactly led to this terrible change of fortune. Unfortunately, I hate reading and most it seems most topics on the subject seem to only be about 1/5 content, the remaining 80% drama (as it is apparently referred to these days).

So, what I ask of you, in my most polite and sweet voice (echoing my former pre-pubescent squeal) is a brief, very brief, summary of events on the subject, and only if it's not too much trouble. Seeing as I haven't been around in oh... two years or so, I don't think I deserve to have any say in the decision making that is almost definitely taking place, but perhaps you could outline the community's current options as well.

Thank you Brad, I've enjoyed very much using my most formal letter-writing voice for this brief stint on your talk page, but it's growing very tiresome and I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to hold up. I hope to hear from you soon.

With love, empathy, and hella gratitude,

Oh you missed the greatest crisis in our history! Poor you. Well, let me sum up. Wikia shows up one day (as they do) and asks us to pick a ".wikia.com" page to move Uncyclopedia. We reply "you'll move us to .wikia when hell freezes over and world peace ensues." Wikia, misunderstanding what we meant, goes ahead and moves us. Chaos follows as admins begin vandalizing the pages of the wiki to try to prove to Wikia that they really should move us to "fuck.wikia.com" if a ".wikia.com" move is really necessary. Wikia is unimpressed. We hold a vote to choose representatives and look for a new server to move the site to, or in the unlikely case of Wikia moving us back to where we go, staying with Wikia. That's where we been for, oh, two months now.
Incidentally, you were the one person I mentioned that I most wanted to hear from again in the Forum:Inactive User Survey.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 12:57, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
:) I'm sure I would've done the same, but you know.. opposite. Two months this has been going on and still no solution, it's amazing what a truly organized group of humor writers can do when they set their collective mind to it. Although I have to admit, fuck.wikia.com was a brilliant idea on someone's part.
Is it true people are leaving over this? I mean, I completely understand, and admit I probably would've left under similar circumstances, but you and Mhaille, Codeine and whoever else is sticking around really deserve some kudos. If uncyclopedia makes it through this we'll have you to thank.
I can think of so many reasons why Wikia was wrong for doing this, and frankly I don't understand why some of those within the company who also count themselves as members of the uncyc community didn't protest such a move. For one, it seems our non-commercial license is increasingly in jeopardy given Wikia's ever-growing presence, and I hope those contributing to any Wikia site realize who their intellectual labor is really benefiting.
That being said, as you mentioned: a quick look at Wikia's alexa stats shows that sadly, uncyclopedia seems to have little effect on a website with such a massive amount of page views every day. Incidentally, an all out boycott of the uncyclopedia.wikia namespace would do little to convince the higher ups of our value. The only other act of vengeance I can think of would be to vandalize all of wikia, but that seems likely to backfire :).
Moving the site entirely would be tough, although some are making it out to be more difficult than I imagine it will be (legal trouble doesn't really worry me). With such a move we would be likely to lose even more members, as I doubt Wikia would remove the site from it's servers, perhaps you remember similar difficulty when Rataube attempted to move the Spanish uncyclopedia. These losses would not necessarily be permanent, but a plan would need to be in place to regain traffic.
Also, I'm not positive about this, but doesn't Wikia own the uncyclopedia.org namespace? Meaning that any move would end up with the site still being listed as uncyclopedia.whatever. All of this, in my opinion, means that are best chance is to attempt direct negotiation with Wikia, but before doing so it would be beneficial to have the infrastructure in place to immediately leave the wikia namespace should talks fail (this would also be a helpful bargaining tool).
Anyway, just my thoughts, let me know if there is any way I can help. I'm pretty busy currently, but I'm willing to make time to help uncyc, maybe I'll even write an article someday.

Yes, Wikia does hold our balls. Given how they ripped our nuts off, it only makes sense. We would like to get our domain namespace back, naturally, but we'll have to wait for the POWARZ that be to finish their preparations before moving on to the torch and pitchfork stage. As it stands now, we are stuck in a holding pattern. I'll let you know how you can help when you can help, but your best bet is to wait until we move somewhere brilliant, then write something else. Or perhaps reverse that.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 20:14, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
Alright, that sounds fine. Hey, I've been meaning to ask you, do you remember in IRC, a long time ago, when we were discussing who should be president, and I said Barack Obama, and you said John McCain?
