Seriously, you flounce off dramatically, ban Moardildoes and ''don't even ban me for a second''? FUCK YOU MAN, you used to be ''cool''. ''And'' it's coming up to '''MINCE PIE SEASON'''. Asshole. I'm going to bug 'Dillo on Facebook to abuse his 'crat powers and temporarily re-op me '''''just so I can ban the fuck out of you'''''. Or eat a ham and cheese toastie. One or the other.

could you please kindly remove the pages on Islam and its related pages like Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him Jesus, peace be upon him Allah and so on.

these are really offensive and hurtful, and as rational human beings we should respect others beliefs.

uncyclopedia has some funny stuff but it mocks a lot of religions and beliefs, id really like to have this removed and im sure many feel the same, thank you {{Unsigned|Ssj-noodles1994}}
   
==Normally I don't trust you but I need your honest opinion here==
+
:On this topic, I feel I can respond in place of the Chief. [[Islam]] and the related pages are not going anywhere. Thank you for noticing that Uncyclopedia "mocks a lot of religions and beliefs." As this was your first edit anywhere, it gives the impression that you are not here to help us write humorous content but to claim that stuff is "offensive and hurtful." To that claim, sir, please go pound sand. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:00 6-Nov-13</small>
What do you think of [[User:Matthlock/WIP/HowTo:Swear In Farsi|this article]]? Is there anything you think I should change? (I'm asking you since you're the only Admin here who's awake and on Uncyclopedia right now.) {{User:Matthlock/sig2}} 19:05, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
+
::Hi, Ssj! You yourself can help us notice these hurtful words, if you feel that they are not funny but just offending. {{User:Anton199/sig}} 19:45, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
:The article isn't bad, I'd suggest that you try to cut out some of the more unnecessary parts as the article seems to linger around some points. The aspect of buying the dictionary need not take up two sections. There's opportunities for jokes, but consider condensing what you have down into a slightly smaller section. Make sure you also keep it as a general guide, it's fine to say "If you have family who speak Farsi why not swear at them repeatedly and see if they pick up bits of furniture and try to insert it in you", but don't be any more specific than that. Also consider trying to take the article somewhere more unexpected than buy a dictionary, learn Farsi, start swearing. Have a look at some of the other How To's and see if any of the endings there give you some ideas of a better way to finish. Hope that helps. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 22:08, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
+
:Anton, Ssj's request was not that we look for offensive text but that we cease to have articles on religion and founders of religion; that is, that we stop being Uncyclopedia. This request does not deserve that we look for a way to go halfway. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>19:49 6-Nov-13</small>
::Thanks, I thought my idea about crazy old Uncle Mahmout went a little too far. Thanks for confirming my belief that I was driving that joke into the ground. (I think that maybe the stuff about the reader's family could be better off it it were put into a footnote.) {{User:Matthlock/sig2}} 19:42, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
+
::I cannot object. {{User:Anton199/sig}} 20:00, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
:::I don't know how I'm going to misdirect the article and lead it to an ironic ending (I'm irony-impaired, I know you know that since you read my failed article on how to be Matthlock, but I just can't think of anything that would make the reader think "I did not see that coming"). I don't want to stereotype, but since you're British, you could actually probably think of a really good shock ending. Give me an idea and I'll put it into consideration. {{User:Matthlock/sig2}} 20:08, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
+
::If you can write funny stuff about Islam without being offensive as was done with [[Jews]] then if it is funny enough with a vote from the community it could replace what is there. But doing this without consensus is a definite no no. This site's purpose is to be funny not to be politically correct. {{User:Simsilikesims/sig}} 20:51, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

It wasn't my average trip through a forest amongst that amount level of creepy. I don't even remember when I traveled there. I thought at first it was maybe Jigsaw, but no. It was it. It had to be it. It was tall, and its face... NO! It didn't have a fucking face! It had nothing! Not a nose, not a pair of eyes, ears, or a mouth. Whiter than my ass, and my ass is pretty white. It had to be Slenderman. It was abnormal. It had a suit, a black suit. It looked like a man, but it-- there, no. There was no way that thing was human, it is impossible. He was slender and scary, but it didn't get the best of me. I didn't let him-- no! I didn't let it get the best of me. This was my story, my tale, my legend... this was not the night Slender chased me, no. This is the night I chased Slender. I will tell further, if you have the guts. If you're unafraid.

== The last UnSignpost of the year ==
   
I want it to be like the "post-story" added to the beginning. Like a prelude letter or something. Also, could you go through and proofread it when I am done? Better yet, do you want to collab with this? You do seem to know a lot about Slenderman like I do.--{{User:Kamek98/sig2}} 20:52, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

:I'm more than happy to assist you with the article, the bit above may need to be re-hashed a little for the reasons I have gone into. I'll experiment with the article a bit when I have some time if you want. It all depends on where you want it to go. I'll have a look at the intro and see what I can do with it, if you've got any particular suggestions by all means say so, and if you don't like what I decide to try then say that too. Give me a little while and I'll try and make those changes. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 22:03, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

==Happy New Year!==
:::Possible, I was growing quite attached to the idea of doing more as written from the point of view of someone who is completely obsessed with the Slender Man. This being his account of his singular encounter with the Slender Man. The main issue being that the diary idea from Cloverfield relies on people being able to see what is happening, where we have to explain it we lose the urgency in the narrative. The diary idea can work, it just needs changed a bit. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 22:29, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

I liked your comments on the forum. It may be you and I running down the halls here, and with me being fake gay and all, watch your trousers. I don't know what will happen to the site, mainly because this will be the search engine uncyclopedia for a long long time unless that is a number one priority for the people in control of the policies and plans of the new site. It won't be uncyclopedia until when I put "uncy" into the search engine that site comes up. I hope everyone there also keeps a foot in this site, and moves new articles onto each. A new world, maybe it's the Aztecs mucking around with us. [[user:Aleister|'''Aleister''']] 12:22 3-1-'13
 
:Hopefully it won't just be me and you, though that would streamline the decision making process. I'd like to see what happens on Saturday rather than moving into an "us and them" mentality. Also, as you will be remaining we are going to draw up one policy, wherein a sturdy pair of trousers are worn at all times whilst editing the wiki, I'm not going to be fake gayed to death in my sleep. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 12:27, January 3, 2013 (UTC)

:::On a serious point Chief, we appear to be the only two active admins who are not looking to move elsewhere. I don't want to go via the emails here to talk about this but you can contact me at romartus@hotmail.com. Thanks. --{{User:Romartus/sig2}} 08:12, January 4, 2013 (UTC)

::::::I don't know is the simple answer, I don't think we will know until Saturday. There is likely to be some disruption either way, nice to know you'll be sticking around. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 09:49, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
 
:::::::Hiya Chief! I sent an email to Romartus - with a few other questions. You are most welcome to email me any time. BTW: Can/will Spike be an admin? How about Aleister? What is Jimbo Wales going to do about this site? Will he maintain it? Who is ultimately in charge? I personally don't care about a warning message and a few ads - companies don't exist only on air, and Uncyclopedia is already free. Have to see ads even when we go to a movie - and we pay to get in! Jeez! What's the big deal? Best to you, mate!--{{User:Funnybony/sig}} <small><small>10:15, Jan 4</small></small>

::Hi Cat, do we get to vote for admins? I always vote for Spike (even though he never votes for me - grin!). I hope he's an Admin. Cheers--{{User:Funnybony/sig}} <small><small>11:14, Jan 4</small></small>
 
:::::::::As I've already mentioned, I'm not wanting to start making decrees or establishing interim governments until we know what is happening, I'm anxious that we don't fall into an "us and them" mentality, anyone who goes to the new site is welcome back here anytime, no questions asked and no comments made. In terms of new admins, there may be a need depending on who goes to the new site, when we look at a VFS next month we can see what everybody thinks. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 10:27, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
 
::::Thanks for the info, Chief. Cheers!--{{User:Funnybony/sig}} <small><small>11:14, Jan 4</small></small>
 
:::::I declared I'm staying [[Forum:Forks in the road - Uncyclopedia moving from Wikia, a discussion#Spike is staying|last night]]. That the Chief is staying is heartening and is part of what I meant by "mature Administrators," Romartus being the other part. Dividing the effort is regrettable, but many of the serious comedy writers seem to be staying and all the vandals with spray cans seem to be leaving as a clique. Cat, I am not stalking you and in fact Unwatched you yesterday. Funnybony, my status is: perhaps with a greater technical aptitude than you guys, but totally untrained at the nuts and bolts of MediaWiki; still with a creaky, metered, rural Internet service that induces me to run with Javascript and photos disabled most of the time; willing to Patrol and be nice (when warranted) to new users, but generally still more interested in writing than administrating. Funnybony, I never vote for anyone (though I recently voted against Dannyboy) and I was happier not caring about VFH. My DOS dial-up mail at <code>spike.mv.com</code> went out of business since Chief and maybe Funnybony last mailed me, but the link from here works and Romartus has my e-mail address. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:29 4-Jan-13</small>
 
:::Thanks Spike. Once upon a time you were the Unnews editor. I was bummed when you got moronically banned by the very drama queens, then quit. Global is doing a good job, but I don't know the plan. If it's a legal fact that Wikia purchased and owns "Uncyclopedia" - then this is kinda [[Crime|wrong]]. I have no objection to ads and a warning note. Unless Wikia charges membership fees or gets enough donations there is no other option. Sorry about using your talk page, Chief. Cheers!--{{User:Funnybony/sig}} <small><small>13:37, Jan 4</small></small>

Thanks for the Pee Review on the [[1990s]] article. Feel free to make any edits/improvements if you wish. Also, about the list of shows: do you think I should delete any shows that don't have articles here? I was thinking about it, but I know many of these shows are often name-dropped and form a crucial part of "90s" culture, even if they don't have articles. And what do you think of the "Music" section? I wrote that section as a parody of "90s kids" who think they were the last generation to listen to REAL music like the Beatles (not that sissy Justin Gayber crap).--[[User:EpicWinner|EpicWinner]] ([[User talk:EpicWinner|talk]]) 20:40, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:I'm more than happy to make a few changes to the article. The thing about the lists is that they aren't amusing on their own, lists can be funny but they have to have something that merits that, we want to avoid just listing TV shows that are name dropped. Perhaps we could select a couple and talk about them at a bit more length. The article doesn't have to cover everything connected to the 90's or we'll be there all day, it only has to be funny, we could do that by mentioning lots of TV shows or none. I'll make a couple of changes to that section to show you what I'm getting at, then you can have a read and see what you think. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 20:49, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
::Which shows do you think warrant a mention?--[[User:EpicWinner|EpicWinner]] ([[User talk:EpicWinner|talk]]) 21:02, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:::I've made a change to the television section to illustrate what I mean. It could be expanded to discuss other shows but I was struggling to do so without repeating myself. I only mention a couple of shows but that could easily be remedied. I've focussed the text on speaking about 90's television in general using a single show as example. I'm sure we could put in some others if you really want to. I think you need to be more general about things and speak more about the style of television broadcasting than individual shows. What are your thoughts? --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 21:32, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
::::Nice job. What about some info about the 90s shows on Nick, CN, and Disney Channel? Those channels are usually brought up when people talk about the 90s, and how good they used to be. I have to admit, since I'm technically not a "90s kid" (despite watching re-runs of 90s shows) it's a bit hard to write about the decade in general.--[[User:EpicWinner|EpicWinner]] ([[User talk:EpicWinner|talk]]) 21:58, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:::::I'd be very cautious about just listing shows, less is more in this regard. If you're just listing shows and have very little to say about them then it's better to leave them out entirely rather than include them just for the sake of including them. It's not necessary to know everything about the 90's to write about them. If you're struggling have a look at the wikipedia page for ideas and then adapt those to fit your article. You're making some good improvements, but I still think some of the filler material should be removed. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 17:58, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

I would like to request you review the block of {{U|SPIKE}} made by TKF. I consider entirely unwarranted (as should be clear from that I reverted it twice - arguably not a good move either, but egh) and have taken this up with him previously, but there is little more I can do at this point. Given the politics of the moment (are you leaving? Is TKF? Is SPIKE? How much did that play into this?) and the fact that TKF deopped me, however, I can appreciate that this may not be a situation you would like to step into, but you're one of very few admins left that I know of whom I would consider sensible. -— [[User:Lyrithya|Lyrithya]] [[User talk:Lyrithya|༆]] 03:22, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
+
== WTF IT'S CHIEF ==
:I'll make this as brief yet thorough as possible, to avoid prolonging this:
 
:*My ban was completely warranted. Spike has been speaking without a filter lately in a whole variety of ways, from calling articles "crap-cakes" to calling Aleister "deluded," and has resumed the arrogant sort of behavior that got him in trouble the last time he was banned. These offenses, cheerfully overlooked because, as Sannse says, this is a tense and strange time for everyone, but the boulder that broke the camel's back is [[User_talk:SPIKE#Should_I_stay_or_continue_on_the_new_site.3F|this]]. Hammering a noob like that is inexcusable from anybody in any situation, let alone someone who repeatedly brags to being one of the only sensible people left on the site (hooray more arrogance), even more let alone someone who is nominated for UotY. The ban, as I see it, is well-justified and unavoidable. Zombiebaron agreed on IRC.
 
:*Lyrithya undid the ban rashly and without context. She says herself how out-of-the-loop she feels, and she speaks the truth. The fact that she undid my ban means nothing. Romartus undid my ban because he thought I based it on the conversation on Socky's talkpage, where Spike call's Kip's article a "crapcake." I specified my reason with the second ban and, so far, Romartus has said nothing.
 
:*I deopped Lyrithya in order to ''shorten'' this argument, knowing tensions were so high, and prevent further rash conflicts. This is not the first time I've deopped her briefly as a cooldown (a hella controversial practice, I know, but it's proven to be pretty effective). I was about to restore her before I noticed Zombiebaron had done it first(again, [[User talk:Thekillerfroggy|my talk page]]).
 
:Them's the facts, sir justice sir. --{{User:Thekillerfroggy/sig}} 03:46, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
 
::I'm not wishing to pour oil on troubled waters here by going into the specifics of whether what happened last night are right or wrong, I will give you my thoughts on SPIKE's block. SPIKE, it seems to me, has come in for a great deal of stick from a number of people on this wiki and while telling newer users that by moving to the new site they will be "sucking up to autocrats" is not particularly friendly, it is not exactly unprovoked, if not by the user in question. A ban it seems to me is appropriate in the context of what has been done, SPIKE needs some time to cool off and calm himself down a bit, a brief ban justifies that means.
 
   
::I do not excuse arrogant and rude behaviour from anybody but I feel it is rash to overlook the situation as it is, the community is going two separate ways and tensions are quite high because of that. SPIKE should serve a brief ban for violations of rule 2 and biting the noobs, but I feel a month is a very long time for an established user who has proven multiple times that he only has the best interests of the wiki at heart, we should also consider the backdrop to SPIKE's current behaviour and accept that others in this community are not wholly guiltless in causing it.

I know you... You are the one that sucks, right? {{User:Frosty/sig3}} 20:44, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:I sometimes blow as well. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 20:45, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
   
::Lyrithya: I would like to think that the block is not in the context of the site move, at least not in the sense that it would cause any issues for those remaining here, as far as de-opping you goes that is down to TKF's judgement, that is a right the community gave to him. As administrators we have to accept some of the opinions and actions of our fellows in good faith; wheel warring is never where we want to be. I would say that approaching TKF and trying to come to some kind of compromise is better than a wheel war over the block.
+
== Funnybony ==
   
::I propose that SPIKE's block is reduced to 48 hours starting from last night in the interests of ending this argument and considering more important things, for instance, the question of sniffing attractive people whilst standing behind them in queues to "see if they smell nice too". I'm personally all in favour but nobody else seems to want to talk about it. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 07:28, January 5, 2013 (UTC)

He submitted to UnNews, then to VFH, [[UnNews:Abby Martin ‘non-notable’ Wikipedia ban boosts notability]], and made it clear on VFH that the main purpose of this news was to provide ammunition ("independent" proof of notability) to push a debate at Wikipedia. On that basis — that it pimped Uncyclopedia — I moved it off UnNews and into his userspace. Later, I VFH'd the Satanic Verses article to welcome a newbie, and Funnybony decided that its title could not be named on his talk page or linked to in an article. That is all. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>21:58 20-Mar-14</small>

In lieu of a Pee Review: I proofread your first draft, which was completely different and ought to live on, for example, as [[Police orientation]]. The current draft is more encyclopedia-ish. Nothing requires rework; it would benefit from a little more proofreading. (Set off time/place clauses with a comma and be sure to use full stop at the end of a complete thought.) But a large subset of this article is a type of humor that the rest isn't. In the US, newspaper columns that summarize police reports are called the [[Police blotter]] and this could be a home for that stuff. Nothing better, to pad our page count, than to set out to write an article and wind up writing three! I disagree with your comment at Pee Review that the existing page was "a bit schizophrenic"; it was simply ranty. (The fact that it wasn't entirely ranty might be schizophrenic, but surely it was ranty Anons who will continue to be drawn to an article entitled Police.) I think you should use VFD and point to your replacement instead of just replacing the entire article. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:52 25-Mar-14</small>

:Thanks for the comments, I tend to get a bit carried away when I'm writing and my thoughts of proofreading are dropped off a cliff to be smashed to bits on the jagged rocks below. I am ever the hypocrite as I recommend careful proofreading in my reviews all the time. Perhaps I will resurrect the original first draft at some point, the problem is that I set out with specific ideas for the article in mind and after getting half-way through the first attempt I felt that I wasn't able to make the points I wanted and keep the same style. Your comment "a large subset of this article is a type of humor that the rest isn't" - is that a criticism or is it merely an observation? I'm happy to change things if I've not been consistent, I was quite eager to include a lot of jokes from the first draft so may have let my consistency lapse in places.

:I replaced the original article as I felt that mine was a lot better and didn't anticipate any argument with that point, VFD seemed an unnecessary delay to putting a better article in mainspace.

Good sir,
+
I don't mind the "inconsistency," as any article's History section is necessarily different from the sections dealing with the subject in the modern day; only meant to suggest that you might have two articles for the price of one. And I too feel that your article (or articles) is better than the "ranty" original, and that there would be no dispute about it, but VFD with its notification and one-day wait should be the standard when discarding an entire page of a past writer's work. <small>14:11</small> PS--And I don't think the original author of this one cares. For future reference only. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:48 25-Mar-14</small>
   
I would like to ask you for assistance. At the time you deleted the Bronies page, I had already attempted to complete the page to no avail. I had also asked Romartus to help me improve the formatting - but no matter how I tried to edit the page to make it more acceptable, the WIP tag would not go away.
+
==[[Fuck the Police]]==
   
Although I'm asking a lot, I would kindly ask you to restore the page with all the necessary changes done. The reason I ask this is not to be ungrateful but because I'm lousy at formatting. If you could also tell me what exactly needs to be done in order to make it an acceptable article, I would be much obliged.

:I have restored the page into mainspace. I have made a couple of changes to it but do not wish to go about making bigger changes to the formatting without some direction from you. The main problem as I see it is the massive image of the map which would be OK in a smaller size but the big, unrestricted size just looks untidy. You are also doing a lot of unnecessary spacing which isn't helping you out either. I've altered the first line of the article to a simple disambiguation and moved some bits closer together as well as changing the Polish wikipedia template to our bog standard wikipedia template. I'm happy to make some more changes to the article if you'd like, just let me know what you want doing with the map image and if there's anything that should categorically not be removed from the article. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 09:09, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

You were correct in tagging [[Ice cream tub and elastic bands]] with {{Tl|ICU}} but (as I wrote on QVFD) I would have given him more of a chance before deleting it. After his first blanking, I wrote to his talk page suggesting that he keep trying. His second blanking may be the result of shock at seeing a sign of official disapproval; he might not even know that other people are looking at his writing.

*"'''[[You]]''', {{USERNAME}}, were born several years ago and now '''you are gay'''."
:Aimsplode, the reasons I struck your nomination are as follows: You were once banned indefinitely on this wiki for bullying, rudeness and inappropriate behaviour. Your reappearance here coincided with your being banned indefinitely from the forked wiki. You have not contributed to mainspace since November, all your edits are to forums, VFH, your userspace and occasionally to QVFD articles from your userspace. All the votes you had polled were from yourself, two people who have moved over to the other wiki , where cries to have your indefinite ban revoked are noticeably absent, someone who hasn't edited in 7 months and Kip the Dip. You have a disregard for other people's contributions and revert administrators when you believe they have acted "unfairly". If you want to be an admin you need to demonstrate commitment to this wiki, a change in your behaviour and a nomination from a user consistently editing here. That is why I made my decision to remove the nomination. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 14:29, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

:As regards Aimsplode's nomination, I say again, if you are so keen on him you can op him on the fork, had I closed the VFS vote to persons who are primarily editing the forked uncyc Aimsplode would have not have been nominated and if he had would have so far polled 1 vote, from himself. I am not interested in this wiki becoming the butt of a joke,I have seen discussions on IRC along the lines of "It'll be hilarious if Aimsplode is made an admin on the old Uncyc". I have gone out of my way to include persons who have moved to the new wiki and been as tolerant as I can be, but where the votes are "For. Now I'm pissing off back to the other wiki" or "Lol this is so funny" I will not sit and watch it happen.

:As an aside - the only place I've ever found the use of the word "dyke" useful is when using it for the ''lesbian/water dam'' pun. And I think I've only used it on [[Number Bases]] locally. You also have the "lemon" ''fruit/lesbian/faulty thing'' pun that could work, and has more flexibility, and is less offensive. Which I find odd, because the reason why the term came into use was as it suggested that lovers of Sappho were in some way faulty. If you want to go for someone trying to be offensive, then "carpet muncher" is the way to go, much the same as "pillow biter" or "fudge packer". And due to a Freudian slip from several years ago, I've always wanted to do a lover of [[:wp:Sappho|Sappho]]/lover of [[:wp:Satchmo|Satchmo]] joke, especially if it's followed by a [[:wp:scat]] ''music/excrement'' joke. I still can't listen to "It's a wonderful world" without giggling like a 13 year old. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|12:37 am 10 Apr 2014}}
   
:I do not wish to tar everyone with the same brush, many users who have gone to the fork have voted sensibly and properly, however when all the votes for Aimsplode are from people primarily using a wiki he is banned indefinitely from I begin to question whether I am witnessing a democratic process or a deliberate abuse of that process by people wishing to have a "joke" candidate opped here. Aimsplode may someday be an admin here, but that will be after he demonstrates that he wants to improve the wiki, not just have some extra buttons. Were there any question in my mind that the users remaining on this wiki "sincerely want him as administrator" I would re-instate the nomination, but the fact is that those voices are not forthcoming. If anyone who has made consistent edits to this wiki since the split wishes to dispute my decision then I will reverse it. As it stands the people who "sincerely" want him to be an administrator are the same people who are hoping that this version of Uncyclopedia is "buried" by the new wiki. This is not an acceptable state of affairs.

::Ok I understand why you talked to sannse instead of me. I don't like the precedent that it sets, but whatever. I do not, however, understand why you removed Aimsplodes nomination.

:::I would define attempting to corrupt the result of a vote by deliberately voting for a ridiculous candidate ans an exceptionally ggod reason to dislike a vote. I have seen several discussions on IRC about how funny it would be if Aimsplode were made an admin. I assumed good faith in the vote itself by allowing persons who had moved to the fork to vote, despite arguments from others to prevent them from doing so. The result has been that I am being accused of being a demonic fusion of Stalin and Hitler for striking a nomination for a user you guys banned indefinitely 1 week after the split for being "An arrogant, unrepentant asshole". I am distressed to hear that I am now being accused of assuming bad faith despite having seen evidence for people acting in exactly that way. Nobody who had voted for Aimsplode edits here any more and the instant wheel warring from EMC when someone does something he doesn't like makes a mix that is near guaranteed to foster both resentment and an erosion of trust.

And I'd suggest that you prepare to be an admin, even though your nom may not survive the obstacle course to come, by becoming more active on the site and by asking present admins what the most important jobs are, how to do them, how to patrol effictively (I found catergorizing helps, through it I've learned the site, where things are, when an IP edit is in good faith and if their edits fit the page or doesn't - kind of like getting good at judging intent). You should maybe ask all admins to adopt you as an admin, to show you how they do it and why, all the things you need to know. I for two have faith that you will use this experience as a learning curve both for your on-line life and your off-line life. It's like [[wikipedia:Jah|God]] is handing you a gift, and with this gift you can learn how to expand your understanding of other people, of emotions, of caring for something as large and Unimportant as uncyclopedia, and how to watch your temper so it comes out in a diplomatic way rather than an "them versus me" way. Stuff like that. And I've got a feeling that as this becomes real you may want to turn it down. I'd suggest you don't, and that you try it for awhile, and both play and work with a great spirit.

I merely want to know why you eliminated my nomination for admin when, unlike Aim's massive bandwagon vote, I was wholeheartedly serious about these proceedings. With no offense, it disgusts me to see the bureaucracy take my sincere attempt at running for admin in a time that the Wikia Uncyc requires such a thing by treating my solidly serious nom for admin. Give me a real reason for doing it, please... I've had long enough relations with the admins to know what dodgy and otherwise non-sustenant responses are.

What concerns images, the Stalin ones are not the same, which I now realise, is not something obvious. On one of them he is walking with a man, named Yezhov, on the other one he is walking without him (because he was executed) - this an actual example of how the government modified the truth, which I hope is relevant to the theme of my article.

== Voting systems ==

'''I love Big Brother'''
   
Hey,
+
''Pause''
   
Just a thought. We have abundle of systems we use for voting. Some of them work well - VFH, NotM - and some of them work poorly - VFS (obvs), VFD. What I'd like to do is use some of the more structured systems we have on some of the more awkward votes. As a for instance, use the VFH format on VFS, wher the comments are obviously separate from the votes, but keep the votes to “For” only. 'otY people done like our 'otY for articles (auto nominations for those who hit an 'otM in that area over the year). Stuff like that. Given we're in a position where we can comfortably change the structure going forward, it may be the time to start working out those structures. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|08:52 04 Feb}}
+
'''Down with Big Brother'''
   
:I'm open to suggestions. Different procedures--if they are improvements--will further distinguish us from a certain impostor Uncyclopedia. Aleister has proposed on Romartus's talk page an administrative alternative to waiting for voters to straggle by on VFH, but I don't like a rule that gives specific powers to named individuals nor requires them to read everything self-nommed on VFH. The voting system at VFD works just fine, only there are no voters any more.
+
''Pause''
:Other unsolicited suggestions:
 
*We should renounce the tradition (just when I could benefit from it!) that Admins have 2 votes. There are some things that Admins can do with no vote at all, such as ban and huff. Admins are ultimately in a position to say that any given question should not be subject to a vote at all. However, if we agree that a certain decision needs wide buy-in and that everyone's opinion is valid, we ought not invent arithmetical tricks to skew the result.
 
*If there is a way to make sport of our recent drama-fest without thereby prolonging it, it is time for an UnSignpost.
 
*I've added the two new guys to [[UN:AA]] and, with fond memories of Rev. Zim ulator, distributed the insignia. It would be useful if [[UN:AA]] were a table with at least each admin's home timezone (for those who care to disclose it) so that people can get a sense of who is likely to be on call at given times of day. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:40 4-Feb-13</small>

== Calcitetrol's Wildeisms ==
+
*On the contrary, long paragraphs about Goldstein seemed hard to read, just because they were long paragraphs of a very empathic writing. Try reading each sentence one by one and seeing if it carries any particular value to your article. If not, maybe remove them. I felt that some things were repeated too many times. Your article certainly goes in the line what Orwell said in 1984, and the government was extremely repetitive in its proposals, so that the citizens would know what was expected from them by heart, and still I don't think this is essential in this article.
   
I came to the same conclusion as you on that user's out-of-control and unfunny Wildeisms--I think I reverted four more that he added as Anon--but was trying to give him a chance for repair and maybe even clean-up at [[User talk:Calcitetrol]]. But let your revert stand. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:27 8-Feb-13</small>
+
*Even if any sentence has that value, it is destroyed because there are so many phrases going right after another, and in addition to this highlighted. The result is that they read almost like stream of consciousness, even though you have punctuation and separate thoughts. When you're taking part in five minutes of hatred (or how is it called?) your thoughts put together will certainly look like that, but you are writing as if you were the government, and the government needs to persuade. You can knock out the reader with long series of weaker blows, but this will still be less effective than sending strong blows one by one. So give every sentence a place it deserves!

+
*Concerning other aspects, I don't have much else to say. If you would like any more ideas, you could try mentioning Goldstein more, but on relevant and yet absurd occasions. For instance, I liked the nail-that-looks-like-Goldstein part, but the reference to that individual could be even more logical. Such as:
:Already undone edit by Chief. I'm not sure if it works on here as it may be different depending upon the version of wikimedia, but there is an option to “nuke” edits on the mirror. That'll revert (or maybe undo) all edits made by a user if the edits are the top edit of a page. I remember UU mentioned it once many moons ago. I can look into the process again if needs be for here. But we do tend to undo or revert most edits on merit, and that tends to be a one at a time effort, so it may be a possible option that you choose to not use. {{User:PuppyOnTheRadio/sig3|11:57 08 Feb}}
+
{{CQ|Place the nail against the wall you'd like to have the telescreen upon the most. Observe it closely, as you will soon have to deal with it.
   
To be clear, I meant revert Calcitetrol on [[Street Fighter]] only. I don't propose to countermand the Chief, least of all nuke him, and I see no merit to Calcitetrol's edits, only a teachable moment. I had already returned to his talk page and explained why he had been reverted. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:03 8-Feb-13</small>

:Thanks, that's a lot more than I was anticipating. I'll have another look at the bits you mention, which seem to be the bits that try to ape the two minutes hate parts from the novel. The government in Oceania devotes very little time to persuasion and more time to reinforcing and policing the attitudes and thoughts of the people who live there.

::No, I was not disappointed by it! There are some bits that could be improved upon, but even if you consider this as a final version, it is something very good. My thoughts about the two minutes hate are that you are imitating the citizens more than the government, because those who proclaimed Goldstein a traitor probably did not feel that way about him. It needed to be extremely clever to achieve that sort of dominance. Also, you say that "the government in Oceania devotes very little time to persuasion" and yet at the end, O'Brien's dialogue with Smith is pure rhetorics. At the end of the book, I myself was almost convinced by what he said. I think the level of the obedience of the citizens is achieved thanks to such persuasion. {{User:Anton199/sig}} 15:46, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

:::At risk of turning this into a very literary discussion, I disagree that what O'Brien does to Winston is persuasion. He is educating Winston, curing him of his insanity by making him love Big Brother. His manner of doing it is to show Winston the truth about the party, demonstrate its superiority and wholly destroy the rebellious feelings Winston harbours towards the it. Power is sought for power's sake there is no need to persuade the populace to believe it because they have either been educated to believe it or believe it out of fear. The party itself does very little to convert minds to its cause, they control the past, present and future, there is no need to persuade anybody they are right because nobody remembers a time when all records did not say that they were. That is my impression of it anyway. I take your point about the article and will have a look at it soon. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 19:18, April 27, 2014 (UTC)

:I've made a couple of cosmetic changes to it, the light-heartedness of Uncyclopedia is very important as it is what stops us being the "Humorous Essays" category on Wikipedia and we should keep hold of the warnings at the end rather than moving them back into the text as a warning. I've also changed instances of the word "offender" to "user" as it sounds better and more friendly. Otherwise the template isn't a bad idea. Make sure it's protected when added, Ban Patrol itself should keep it's current protection level. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 08:28, February 22, 2013 (UTC)

FUCK YOU CHIEF

Seriously, you flounce off dramatically, ban Moardildoes and don't even ban me for a second? FUCK YOU MAN, you used to be cool. And it's coming up to MINCE PIE SEASON. Asshole. I'm going to bug 'Dillo on Facebook to abuse his 'crat powers and temporarily re-op me just so I can ban the fuck out of you. Or eat a ham and cheese toastie. One or the other.

edit Islam

Hello

could you please kindly remove the pages on Islam and its related pages like Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him Jesus, peace be upon him Allah and so on. these are really offensive and hurtful, and as rational human beings we should respect others beliefs. uncyclopedia has some funny stuff but it mocks a lot of religions and beliefs, id really like to have this removed and im sure many feel the same, thank you The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ssj-noodles1994 (talk • contribs)

On this topic, I feel I can respond in place of the Chief. Islam and the related pages are not going anywhere. Thank you for noticing that Uncyclopedia "mocks a lot of religions and beliefs." As this was your first edit anywhere, it gives the impression that you are not here to help us write humorous content but to claim that stuff is "offensive and hurtful." To that claim, sir, please go pound sand. Spıke ¬ 16:00 6-Nov-13
Hi, Ssj! You yourself can help us notice these hurtful words, if you feel that they are not funny but just offending. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:45, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
Anton, Ssj's request was not that we look for offensive text but that we cease to have articles on religion and founders of religion; that is, that we stop being Uncyclopedia. This request does not deserve that we look for a way to go halfway. Spıke ¬ 19:49 6-Nov-13
I cannot object. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:00, November 6, 2013 (UTC)
If you can write funny stuff about Islam without being offensive as was done with Jews then if it is funny enough with a vote from the community it could replace what is there. But doing this without consensus is a definite no no. This site's purpose is to be funny not to be politically correct. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 20:51, November 6, 2013 (UTC)

edit 90s

Thanks for the Pee Review on the 1990s article. Feel free to make any edits/improvements if you wish. Also, about the list of shows: do you think I should delete any shows that don't have articles here? I was thinking about it, but I know many of these shows are often name-dropped and form a crucial part of "90s" culture, even if they don't have articles. And what do you think of the "Music" section? I wrote that section as a parody of "90s kids" who think they were the last generation to listen to REAL music like the Beatles (not that sissy Justin Gayber crap).--EpicWinner (talk) 20:40, March 20, 2014 (UTC)

I'm more than happy to make a few changes to the article. The thing about the lists is that they aren't amusing on their own, lists can be funny but they have to have something that merits that, we want to avoid just listing TV shows that are name dropped. Perhaps we could select a couple and talk about them at a bit more length. The article doesn't have to cover everything connected to the 90's or we'll be there all day, it only has to be funny, we could do that by mentioning lots of TV shows or none. I'll make a couple of changes to that section to show you what I'm getting at, then you can have a read and see what you think. --Chiefjustice32X 20:49, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
Which shows do you think warrant a mention?--EpicWinner (talk) 21:02, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
I've made a change to the television section to illustrate what I mean. It could be expanded to discuss other shows but I was struggling to do so without repeating myself. I only mention a couple of shows but that could easily be remedied. I've focussed the text on speaking about 90's television in general using a single show as example. I'm sure we could put in some others if you really want to. I think you need to be more general about things and speak more about the style of television broadcasting than individual shows. What are your thoughts? --Chiefjustice32X 21:32, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
Nice job. What about some info about the 90s shows on Nick, CN, and Disney Channel? Those channels are usually brought up when people talk about the 90s, and how good they used to be. I have to admit, since I'm technically not a "90s kid" (despite watching re-runs of 90s shows) it's a bit hard to write about the decade in general.--EpicWinner (talk) 21:58, March 20, 2014 (UTC)
I'd be very cautious about just listing shows, less is more in this regard. If you're just listing shows and have very little to say about them then it's better to leave them out entirely rather than include them just for the sake of including them. It's not necessary to know everything about the 90's to write about them. If you're struggling have a look at the wikipedia page for ideas and then adapt those to fit your article. You're making some good improvements, but I still think some of the filler material should be removed. --Chiefjustice32X 17:58, March 21, 2014 (UTC)
How's the article look now? Feel free to make edits/improvements.--EpicWinner (talk) 23:14, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

edit Funnybony

Since Funnybony today has asserted his desire to be the only Uncyclopedian permitted to censor posts on his talk page, I will provide background here. He submitted to UnNews, then to VFH, UnNews:Abby Martin ‘non-notable’ Wikipedia ban boosts notability, and made it clear on VFH that the main purpose of this news was to provide ammunition ("independent" proof of notability) to push a debate at Wikipedia. On that basis — that it pimped Uncyclopedia — I moved it off UnNews and into his userspace. Later, I VFH'd the Satanic Verses article to welcome a newbie, and Funnybony decided that its title could not be named on his talk page or linked to in an article. That is all. Spıke ¬ 21:58 20-Mar-14

edit Hello!

Great to see you back! Is there a specific issue with the 'new' review template or is it just that you prefer the old one? If you don't like something, it could be fixed. How are you anyway? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:13, March 21, 2014 (UTC)

edit Rollbacks with custom change summary

I saw that you were undoing users' edits rather than reverting them and so I thought that maybe you don't know about the tool that allows you to revert while leaving a change summary. It is described at UN:HAX#Custom_change_summary. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 08:00, March 24, 2014 (UTC)

You young people and your newfangled ideas and tools. I remember when rollback was an anonymous exercise in confidence destruction. I don't really think the tool would be that much faster, but thanks for letting me know about it. --Chiefjustice32X 09:11, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
It does all the patrolling and reverting job at the same time, so I think it will be, but it's up to you! Also have you heard about RotM being revived? Not many people did and there is a need in voters. Could you please help? Thank you! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:40, March 24, 2014 (UTC)
The tool is no faster — but rollback is faster than undo, and the tool lets you roll back with a message, which might produce more positive results. Spıke ¬ 11:52 24-Mar-14

edit Police

In lieu of a Pee Review: I proofread your first draft, which was completely different and ought to live on, for example, as Police orientation. The current draft is more encyclopedia-ish. Nothing requires rework; it would benefit from a little more proofreading. (Set off time/place clauses with a comma and be sure to use full stop at the end of a complete thought.) But a large subset of this article is a type of humor that the rest isn't. In the US, newspaper columns that summarize police reports are called the Police blotter and this could be a home for that stuff. Nothing better, to pad our page count, than to set out to write an article and wind up writing three! I disagree with your comment at Pee Review that the existing page was "a bit schizophrenic"; it was simply ranty. (The fact that it wasn't entirely ranty might be schizophrenic, but surely it was ranty Anons who will continue to be drawn to an article entitled Police.) I think you should use VFD and point to your replacement instead of just replacing the entire article. Spıke ¬ 12:52 25-Mar-14

Thanks for the comments, I tend to get a bit carried away when I'm writing and my thoughts of proofreading are dropped off a cliff to be smashed to bits on the jagged rocks below. I am ever the hypocrite as I recommend careful proofreading in my reviews all the time. Perhaps I will resurrect the original first draft at some point, the problem is that I set out with specific ideas for the article in mind and after getting half-way through the first attempt I felt that I wasn't able to make the points I wanted and keep the same style. Your comment "a large subset of this article is a type of humor that the rest isn't" - is that a criticism or is it merely an observation? I'm happy to change things if I've not been consistent, I was quite eager to include a lot of jokes from the first draft so may have let my consistency lapse in places.
I replaced the original article as I felt that mine was a lot better and didn't anticipate any argument with that point, VFD seemed an unnecessary delay to putting a better article in mainspace. I can't really decide on this myself, it being my own work, if you feel that the site is best served by putting the old version on VFD and asking if it should be replaced with mine then I will do that instead. --Chiefjustice32X 13:29, March 25, 2014 (UTC)

I don't mind the "inconsistency," as any article's History section is necessarily different from the sections dealing with the subject in the modern day; only meant to suggest that you might have two articles for the price of one. And I too feel that your article (or articles) is better than the "ranty" original, and that there would be no dispute about it, but VFD with its notification and one-day wait should be the standard when discarding an entire page of a past writer's work. 14:11 PS--And I don't think the original author of this one cares. For future reference only. Spıke ¬ 14:48 25-Mar-14

Greetings stout fellow! Hope you are well. There's a few pee reviews that need doing that have been on the queue for almost a year, if you fancy those. Otherwise we're short of VFH voters and people to clean-up articles. If those don't take your fancy I'll be casting around for a new article to do soon and would be happy to collaborate on one, but it's really up to you to help out as you'd like. It's excellent to see you editing again. --Chiefjustice32X 06:19, March 26, 2014 (UTC)
Awesome stuff, I will see if I can at least do one or two Pee-reviews. Just gotta figure out how it all works again. Hopefully I will be back in swing soon! Looking forward to seeing your next article, though. --BlueSpiritGuy (talk) 10:26, March 26, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks a mucho Chief! Great review. Sorry about the article I wrote it back in the noob days mainly as a hasty re-write to replace the crap original version. One of those articles where I had one idea, wrote it down and then had no idea how to ellaborate on it. Also if you really are back in business (and you do seem to be) then maybe you might consider popping round for a cup of tea at my place.

Yesterday, Anon changed the File page to claim that this illustration is copyrighted. That doesn't prove it's so, but if it is, we cannot use it here.

As the overwhelming opinion (though not 5-vote consensus) is that this article is crap, and your opposing vote is mostly to retain it for rework, why don't you just take it? or more legally, work on it in place as in the case of a "VFD Save"?

No, remains in mainspace for the month based on deadlock at VFD. Work on it at your leisure. Spıke ¬ 22:43 3-Apr-14

As an aside - the only place I've ever found the use of the word "dyke" useful is when using it for the lesbian/water dam pun. And I think I've only used it on Number Bases locally. You also have the "lemon" fruit/lesbian/faulty thing pun that could work, and has more flexibility, and is less offensive. Which I find odd, because the reason why the term came into use was as it suggested that lovers of Sappho were in some way faulty. If you want to go for someone trying to be offensive, then "carpet muncher" is the way to go, much the same as "pillow biter" or "fudge packer". And due to a Freudian slip from several years ago, I've always wanted to do a lover of Sappho/lover of Satchmo joke, especially if it's followed by a wp:scat music/excrement joke. I still can't listen to "It's a wonderful world" without giggling like a 13 year old.                               Puppy's talk page12:37 am 10 Apr 2014

Thank you very much, once again! You managed to summarise the things that couldn't be summarised and I feel I know what I should do, which could be a good sign!

I would certainly be proud of that page if I had written it, but even though I made it look like advertising and added a bit of content, the ideas and the jokes were not mine. But this doesn't change the fact that I would love to see it featured. Thanks for making your own version, I will be very willing to steal it! It is very helpful, and even though I thought the article needed some suspense before the reader could understand that the iPod Car is "simply a car that is linked into an iPod", I'll still find ways to make it better, according to what you said.

edit Death on VFD

I am reluctant to blow away a non-horrible article, Chronarion or no Chronarion, based on an Uncyclopedian's assertion that he would like to do it differently. Your article is fine, is more encyclopedic, and ought to be our main article on Death. But can you find a way for the old one to live on somewhere? Perhaps at Mr. Death or some name reflecting its casting as a living [sic] character? Spıke ¬ 23:16 4-Apr-14

The article itself isn't great, had I thought it was when I read it I would not have rewritten it entirely. I have no issue preserving it in some way be that through moving the article to another title or a subpage linked from the article itself. --Chiefjustice32X 05:52, April 5, 2014 (UTC)

edit Formerly on the VFD ballot

  1. Can you please keep the first three paragraphs and the picture (intro). Those were the ones written by Chronium (or whatever his name is) the day after he founded the site, so are historically interesting, like the first stuff written by Shakespeare if he'd put up a blog (hmmmmm, an article idea!). All the rest is better replaced by yours. On my userpage here I used to have the first picture uploaded and used on uncy, and asked people to guess what it was. Puppy finally got it, and won no prize! Thanks. Aleister whoops, almost signed my real name, I type these things out every time and haven't done that yet 14:26 4-4-14
Meaning no disrespect to Chronarion the beginning doesn't really fit with the rewrite. If Chron's immortal words (and image) must be preserved surely they can be preserved on a subpage that I can link to in the see also section in the interest of posterity. Fair deal? --Chiefjustice32X 14:54, April 4, 2014 (UTC)
How about including the section at the bottom, with some appropriate bridge from your ending to that one? It's not about Chronarion (I never could remember the name), but about uncyclopedia history. If that bridge idea totally doesn't work a subpage would be fine, with a nice write-up on the See also about the "history of death on uncyclopedia" or some name. Aleister 16:35 4-4-14
How did this end up here, I thought we stopped that practice. This was in the comment section on VFD where we are allowed to have discussions and talks, no matter how long, because they affect the votes of other people. Comments are comments about the VFD nom, and ought to stay where they were put, imnho. Aleister 11:47 6-4-14
It ended up here because I moved it. The Chief is rewriting this, and both of us have advice on the disposition of the original, which belongs on his (or the article's) talk page, not inside a ballot. As last time: See Uncyclopedia:What VFD is not, Sec. 2, Not a talk page. Spıke ¬ 12:12 6-Apr-14

I dabbled a bit at "The Simpsons" to change the "dominant trend" of the decade from civility to really crappy cartoon artwork (culminating, by the way, with Sponge Bob). One thing that struck me in the vicinity of this is that you seem to be trying to serve two masters: not just writing funny stuff but recording your serious reminisces of the decade, especially in the list of TV shows. Unless mention of a given show feeds a joke, it ought not to be included. Spıke ¬ 01:31 19-Apr-14

edit Minitrue

Thanks for all your comments (once again)! I should probably stop asking Pee Reviews for a while and start making actual changes.

It was helpful to know what you thought of the article, the first main draft was a lot shorter and so I was not sure if that amount of content was enough to draw the reader in and then draw him out. I will certainly add more, especially after all your suggestions!

What concerns images, the Stalin ones are not the same, which I now realise, is not something obvious. On one of them he is walking with a man, named Yezhov, on the other one he is walking without him (because he was executed) - this an actual example of how the government modified the truth, which I hope is relevant to the theme of my article.

Do you think making the images bigger and putting them one right after another will make a difference?

I see what you mean by "untidy" at the end and I will certainly ask Puppy, because I used most of the code he put into Microsoft Knowledge Base and adapted it for Minitrue. Again, thank you, and I am surprised at how the quality of your reviews can be so high despite their great amount! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:56, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

I did notice my mistake and edited the review to reflect it, unfortunately I didn't notice until five hours after I'd posted the review. Making the images bigger, doing as you suggest, or perhaps referring to them briefly in the text might be helpful. --Chiefjustice32X 17:06, April 23, 2014 (UTC)
OK. I see you chose the same theme for your new article! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:31, April 23, 2014 (UTC)
Yes! I had that many ideas from reading yours I had to go and try myself. Any comments at this early stage? --Chiefjustice32X 17:33, April 23, 2014 (UTC)
I see the article has already passed its early stage! I!'ve written a reviewLITE, so it is easier to separate from the rest of the comments.

You know, sometimes you start reading a book and immediately after there is something in the style that catches your attention and says that it is something you should read, because you will like it. Just like with good shoes. Well, this was my case: after the first image and "Citizen, rejoice!" I knew that this was going to be a great article, maybe only for me, but maybe for many people. Yet, having read the entire one, I can't help but feel that something is missing. I am definitely disappointed: I voted for it on VFH, but are you sure your work there is complete? I don't know exactly what that something is, and it's hard to give any specific suggestions, however I'll try.
  • I especially like the bits, where you were accompanying every reader's movement, even every thought:
Cquote1 I love Big Brother

Pause

I love Big Brother

Pause

Down with Big Brother

Pause

Down with Big Brother

Cquote2

You even feel as if a hammer is rhythmically striking the nail!

  • On the contrary, long paragraphs about Goldstein seemed hard to read, just because they were long paragraphs of a very empathic writing. Try reading each sentence one by one and seeing if it carries any particular value to your article. If not, maybe remove them. I felt that some things were repeated too many times. Your article certainly goes in the line what Orwell said in 1984, and the government was extremely repetitive in its proposals, so that the citizens would know what was expected from them by heart, and still I don't think this is essential in this article.
  • Even if any sentence has that value, it is destroyed because there are so many phrases going right after another, and in addition to this highlighted. The result is that they read almost like stream of consciousness, even though you have punctuation and separate thoughts. When you're taking part in five minutes of hatred (or how is it called?) your thoughts put together will certainly look like that, but you are writing as if you were the government, and the government needs to persuade. You can knock out the reader with long series of weaker blows, but this will still be less effective than sending strong blows one by one. So give every sentence a place it deserves!
  • Concerning other aspects, I don't have much else to say. If you would like any more ideas, you could try mentioning Goldstein more, but on relevant and yet absurd occasions. For instance, I liked the nail-that-looks-like-Goldstein part, but the reference to that individual could be even more logical. Such as:
Cquote1 Place the nail against the wall you'd like to have the telescreen upon the most. Observe it closely, as you will soon have to deal with it.

Wait, don't you think it looks exactly like the traitor Goldstein?

Beat it, beat it with your hammer as hard as you can! Don't let the enemy escape you and harm the party!

Cquote2
My writing style is certainly different with yours, so maybe this won't suit at all, but I was trying to give an idea.
This was a Pee Review by Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:08, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

Voilà! I hope this helps you! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:09, April 26, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, that's a lot more than I was anticipating. I'll have another look at the bits you mention, which seem to be the bits that try to ape the two minutes hate parts from the novel. The government in Oceania devotes very little time to persuasion and more time to reinforcing and policing the attitudes and thoughts of the people who live there. That being said, I will see if I can put in a few more Goldstein references and will have a go at editing the two minutes hate bit. It saddens me that you were disappointed by the article, so I'll do what I can to change that. Thanks very much. --Chiefjustice32X 05:41, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
No, I was not disappointed by it! There are some bits that could be improved upon, but even if you consider this as a final version, it is something very good. My thoughts about the two minutes hate are that you are imitating the citizens more than the government, because those who proclaimed Goldstein a traitor probably did not feel that way about him. It needed to be extremely clever to achieve that sort of dominance. Also, you say that "the government in Oceania devotes very little time to persuasion" and yet at the end, O'Brien's dialogue with Smith is pure rhetorics. At the end of the book, I myself was almost convinced by what he said. I think the level of the obedience of the citizens is achieved thanks to such persuasion. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:46, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
At risk of turning this into a very literary discussion, I disagree that what O'Brien does to Winston is persuasion. He is educating Winston, curing him of his insanity by making him love Big Brother. His manner of doing it is to show Winston the truth about the party, demonstrate its superiority and wholly destroy the rebellious feelings Winston harbours towards the it. Power is sought for power's sake there is no need to persuade the populace to believe it because they have either been educated to believe it or believe it out of fear. The party itself does very little to convert minds to its cause, they control the past, present and future, there is no need to persuade anybody they are right because nobody remembers a time when all records did not say that they were. That is my impression of it anyway. I take your point about the article and will have a look at it soon. --Chiefjustice32X 19:18, April 27, 2014 (UTC)
Sure, I just think that needed both. But I agree with everything else. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:38, April 29, 2014 (UTC)
