Nice first article...

To format and stuff check out articles on VFH and the Features. We have a sort of a style guide in HTBFANJS. Most of the regular folks are about if you need help:0)--Sycamore (Talk) 10:31, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks. There's a picture of a kid saying "That's racist" on a few pages that I'd like to add here. How do I do that? And how do I do the blue hyperlink things?

How do I make it go to culture but say "cultures"? And how do I do bold and italics?

Competition

Don't worry, I'll do it for you! Thanks for participating, you have until the 30th to edit your UnNews all you want, but after that you can't or the Uncyclopedia monster will knock at your door! I'll leave a message to every participants once the judging is over. Welcome to Uncyclopedia! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 14:40, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

Well, the fun here is not to win or take anything as a competition, and that is good for the whole site! In the end, the fun is to, well have fun writing! I read the first few paragraphs of your article and it is pretty good! The people who take everything seriously here often leave enraged lol. The trick is being nice and realizing nobody is the site's god :P Snowflake mini Mattsnow 14:49, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
Is there anything in particular that I should write? --C₂H₆O (hic) 14:51, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
On your UnNews? It's not allowed to give tips before the end of the competition :P As for the rest, just write what you want, buddy! You can also vote for articles on VFH after reading them, that's always appreciated. I always start articles in my userspace until they are ready (sometimes it takes months!). Just type this in the search box: User:C₂H₆O/title you want for the article. When you are through, you can move it to mainspace with the "move" button atop the screen. Or just ask me if you don't get it, I'm always happy to help! Remember that quality is always better than quantity, take it cool and have fun! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 15:06, April 28, 2012 (UTC)BTW, I put your UnNews on the front page. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 15:07, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
LOL. We'll have to send him to Guantanamo and waterboard his ass! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 06:52, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Hahaha, I'm not an admin, I'm just the UnNews editor :P. When a page is really bad, you can put it on VFD, go over there to find out more about how to do it. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 09:22, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Oh, it is because you are new that you can't edit VFD. I think it takes 3 days or something like that and you'll be fine. I don't think Please delete this page should be deleted though, only on the grounds that some years ago, a bunch of weirdos decided it should grace the front page. People woud vote to keep it I am sure. I agree the elephant article is pretty lame though, I'll put it on VFD right now. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 09:39, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
As Frosty said, better wait a couple of days until you can vfd stuff :) Snowflake mini Mattsnow 11:52, April 29, 2012 (UTC)

Greetings Ethanol

...and congrats on being able to write funny articles, especially funny articles with coherent sentences, which is better than most folks here can say. Keep it up. We need plenty of ethanol around here. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSat, Apr 28 '12 23:12 (UTC)

Do writing coherent sentences and Ethanol typically go together? Heh, jks. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 23:17, April 28, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the welcomes, but my friends just call me alcohol. --C₂H₆O (hic) 23:29, April 28, 2012 (UTC)

A list of pages that need to be fixed?

Did you mean Uncyclopedia:Articles to fix? And hello.                               Puppy's talk page09:48 29 Apr

Under the links there. I came across that one, but there's also some under other headings that don't seem to have any reason to be there.--C₂H₆O (hic) 10:03, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
You may want to talk to Zombiebaron about that. It has to do with suppressing the categories on the page so they don't show on the DPL. And if you don't follow me, just cut and paste that stuff I just said for him.                               Puppy's talk page10:12 29 Apr
Okay. I'll just say that there's "geek stuff" that needs to happen. Thanks. --C₂H₆O (hic) 10:15, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
Pages to be fixed? All of them! hahahahahaheehehehee Aleister 10:42 29-4-'12

Man bites dog

When I just looked at the main page I had to check the history of "UnNews:Man bites dog" just to see if it was new. It's, like, just the most recognizable satiric headline in journalism, and nobody in uncy's history has ever used it as a title before you! Congratulations, that's an aus(ome)picius beginning. Good to meet you, in these, the hallways of uncyclopedia. Aleister 10:44 29-4-'12

Thank you. I'm amazed that nobody had done it before either. I asked Mattsnow to enter it into that competition thing, so I hope it goes well. --C₂H₆O (hic) 10:48, April 29, 2012 (UTC)
It should. And for some strange reason the category I entered, UnNews Rewrite, only had one entry - mine - which is why I'm playing at Mattsnow's place because I've won it already. Doin' the dance. So I come in both first and last in that category! Aleister 3:38 May Day '12
I noticed that when I was looking at my competition. I'm still holding out hope for winning imaginary money. I'm not good at imagining money usually. --C₂H₆O (hic) 03:41, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

UNCYCLOPEDIA FLORAL KITTEN ALERT:

If you are seeing pink floral kittens, do not be alarmed. You have accidentally chosen the "New Wikia look" site-theme on your preferences page. You may thank one of our prankster admins for that theme. You can go here and choose either Monobook or "Uncyclopedia (default)" under "Layout", and then hit "save". Your site theme will return to normal.

This has been an UNCYCLOPEDIA FLORAL KITTEN ALERT. We will now return you to your normal programming. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, May 1 '12 11:10 (UTC)

Next time I'm hallucinating do you mind dropping by and making it seem normal at that stage too? --C₂H₆O (hic) 11:18, May 1, 2012 (UTC)
I'll bring a stomach pump and some activated charcoal. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, May 1 '12 11:21 (UTC)

Pee Buddy contest!!

We are now at the crucial stage of judging the magnificent UnNews article on THIS PAGE! Thanks for your participation. Expect at least a week for the judging to be completed. *Drumroll* I know it will be awfully hard to sleep until the week is completed, but that's what sleeping pills are for. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 12:20, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

I have my depressant of choice already. Thank you all the same. --C₂H₆O (hic) 12:22, May 1, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Ethanol-Man

You're the future of green energy in America. Everyone, even President Zombiebaron knows that. That's why we've nominated you Noob of the Moment. --Qzekrom sig trans This has been an automated message by Cute Zekrom (talk) 01:58, May 2, 2012 (UTC)

Although the increase in the reliance on ethanol has mean more land has been given over to growing sugar cane for the production of alcohol, which has lead to a further stretching of world food reserves. And it is a non-renewable energy source, just less of a drain on natural resources on fossil fuels. --C₂H₆O (hic) 02:25, May 2, 2012 (UTC)
I know, I was just trying to be welcoming. --Qzekrom sig trans This has been an automated message by Cute Zekrom (talk) 22:09, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Adopt A Noob

Great! You can consider yourself adopted :P Let me know when you need something. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 16:47, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

I moved World War II to World War II: The movie, so we can have a fresh start. I think we should forget the "movie" concept and go at it, based on facts (you're gonna be better than me there). Do you think we should keep the enormous template, actually rewriting it with the funnies? Also, expect me to go at a snail pace on that one: no hurry! I sometimes take months to write articles! By the way, did you read my last UnNews? UnNews:Our Great Leader Kim Jong-un brings even more prosperity to us glorious North Koreans? It's just too easy to make jokes about North Korea, really! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 12:33, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Okay. I'll start work on it over the next few days and try and create a skeleton that can be fleshed out. A semi-factual approach, like I did with Salvador Dalí, is probably the best approach, and then funny can be worked around it. I read HowTo:Be absurdly funny and not just a content freak the other day as well, and although this isn't canon, does give me a good idea as to what would work better in this article and what wouldn't. That means there has to be more of an emphasis on making laughs than accuracy, but we have to steer away from the randomness as well. It's a big project. --C₂H₆O (hic) 12:40, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
I agree! You should start it in your userspace, I will help for sure! I always like to say I won't do much not to put much presure on my shoulders, and next thing you know I'm all over it! So what do you think about the template? I can't design templates, and this one seems pretty complete (once we purge it that is) Gotta go for a couple of hours, but I'll start documenting myself a bit on the grandes lignes of WW2 on Wikipedia later today and hopefully start spraying the page tonight. I think it is going to be a very fun project, as we can't just botch it or make it short! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 12:45, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry. I don't know which template you are referring to. I only worked out today what a template is. --C₂H₆O (hic) 12:52, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
The thing on the article's right lol Snowflake mini Mattsnow 12:54, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Now I understand. I came back after reading UnNews:Our Great Leader Kim Jong-un brings even more prosperity to us glorious North Koreans and got confused. It is a good idea, but in the current article I feel it's just too big and too much in a big blocky lump to be aesthetically pleasing. Maybe we can break it down a little. I'd put it on the back burner anyway. If we start with getting the text right, and then build around that, we'll probably have a better outcome. --C₂H₆O (hic) 13:03, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
So much for work today: believe it or not, it's hailing and the visibility is like 10 feet. We'll work tomorrow instead. (I'm really working far away from civilization lol, so working on a Saturday is no big deal at all) I'll try to come up with something funny for the template. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 13:21, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
I think I'll be able to slim down the template a bit: it seems its width follows the width of the opening pic. I'll get rid of the long texts in it and try to be funny, what do you think of the opening picture? User:Mattsnow/stuff Snowflake mini Mattsnow 13:58, May 4, 2012 (UTC)PS: Just tweaked the first part of it below the pic, If I continue with that style is it OK? Notice that the template will be a lot more brief than the other one. :P Snowflake mini Mattsnow 14:18, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
It looks better already. --C₂H₆O (hic) 15:43, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
I'm gonna focus on it, I'm far from done though. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 15:46, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
I only have the "casualties" section to rewrite, I suggest we start the article on that page: User:Mattsnow/World War II KEWL? Snowflake mini Mattsnow 09:03, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. I'm not feeling well at the moment so it might be a couple of days before I can get anything done. --C₂H₆O (hic) 09:45, May 5, 2012 (UTC)
Whoops, sorry for the edit conflict. I wanted to totally rewrite the casualties count, but make it shorter. It's a tad depressing. Get well, take your time. (But being sick is a great excuse to stay in front of the PC! :P) Snowflake mini Mattsnow 09:57, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Zombiefy me!


It wasn't quite that many. It just felt like that many. --C₂H₆O (hic) 15:30, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

My favourite pickup line

Does this rag smell like chloroform to you? ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 06:55, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

I've tried dating with chloroform before, but I always end up with a hangover from it the next morning. --C₂H₆O (hic) 06:57, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

Hand the baby to your husband and get in the car. Aleister 12:06 6-5-'12

WotM

Hello. My note on your WotM entry means no disrespect to you. Hell, you might justifiably win WotM for Salvadore Dali alone. I just know that many many users have won Noob of the Month and showed amazing promise, and then one day you they vanished and you never heard from them again. I see WotM as a very nice award in the satire niche not only here but on the entire innernests. It is really a badge of honor, in the satirical world. So my comment was just to make sure you really earn it, and, I figure, you will treasure it that much more when you do (although you may win this month, as I know you can control the minds of the people with alchohol alone). Onward and upwards!!! Aleister 12:13 6-5-'12

I've written a total of zero features. The nomination is a huge honour as it is, but to win it over more experienced writers here would be a faux par. You saved me having to make a similar point myself relating to that nomination, so I am - in all honesty - grateful for your words and your support. --C₂H₆O (hic) 12:31, May 6, 2012 (UTC)
Tiger Woods has many faux pars. Thanks, although the guy I nominated is long gone but deserves a place on the wotm list (it's more of a hall of fame of uncyclopedia honour than a "month" thing, at least I was told that when I got here and was wondering why some people didn't win it many times). I see you have a cold - flood your body with water and that should take away or ease most symptoms (sore throat, aching muscles, stuffed head - heh heh - and other symptoms of a cold are just symptoms of dehydration as the body asks you for "more water please". I will send a medical bill on the first of the month, pay it promptly or you know. Get well soonA! Aleister 13:09 6-5-utc utc utc utc
Tiger's pars are usually genuine. And getting well is a priority. --C₂H₆O (hic) 13:12, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

User:Mattsnow/World War II

What do you think of the start? I think the infobox is hilarious, definitely the best infobox I did. Still interested in collaborating? *fingers crossed* Oh and by the way, just wrote that: The Great Elephant Revolt of 2011 Snowflake mini Mattsnow 12:38, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

I like the start. I'm feeling better, so I'll be back to add content tomorrow. I didn't want to do too much with a stuffy head. --C₂H₆O (hic) 13:03, May 6, 2012 (UTC)

You seem to know about Art

I was thinking of re-writing the article on Art. You appear to know more about it than I do. How do you feel about working on it with me?                               Puppy's talk page10:55 08 May

I appreciate the compliment, but at the present I'm working on User:Mattsnow/World War II, which is likely to take a while. If you would like you're welcome to lend a hand there as well. --C₂H₆O (hic) 12:23, May 8, 2012 (UTC)

I would like to bring your attention to this forum
