- Politicians are not my thing, so shredded wheat it is! Like any great breakfast cereal, it will take some time to thaw out, chop up and stew first. 00:52, January 23, 2016 (UTC)
Hi Chunkles, found this in the ICU section needing pictures. Been having a tinker with it, as it is a fun article and has some great comedy hooks. It occurred to me that the article may appeal to you too, should you be inclined to play with something half done.11:51, February 12, 2016 (UTC)
- Perhaps; I'll tentatively add it to my to-do list. More pressing though is that I found the Flint, Michigan article a bit ...out-of-date. I wanted to make the necessary additions there first. :) 12:28, February 12, 2016 (UTC)
- A new section on Flint's unique "mineral water" would be good. 15:02 12-Feb-16
- PS--Fifty sections? Perhaps it's time to create your first talk page archive. 15:03 12-Feb-16
- Details are at UN:TALK#Archives. 20:34 14-Feb-16
Congratulations on your competition win Chunkles! Nice work!
Thank you for competing in the 2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl!
Your entry, Shredded wheat, won the gold and has been moved to the main encyclopedia! 13:11 14-Feb-16
- This too will look nice on my user page! The blades look just right for wheat shredding. 20:24, February 14, 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the new section on the water crisis! I went in afterwards and tried to give it a better chronological flow. The cover-up by the State of Michigan is worth a comedy treatment but wasn't funny as just a mention.
Your change of the section headings is fine, but there is nothing "improper" about un-numbered section headings with the semicolon. I've been criticized on Wikipedia for using them, by people who say they don't help navigation on mobile devices, but this is the job of the guy doing the mobile interface, as semicolon headings are a legitimate part of wikicode. I used them originally to simplify the Table of Contents.21:36 14-Feb-16
- Okay, I was wondering about those. I hadn't seen them before, and felt they made the article's table of contents unnaturally empty. I'll keep this in mind on future edits. 21:50, February 14, 2016 (UTC)
I also used them in a couple of the recent Presidential Candidate pages, for subsections on individual state primaries. Back to Flint, I liked the paralellism of your section head Reindustrialization but wondered also about a play on "Mineral water".00:11 15-Feb-16
- I thought about it, but then I saw the "Industrialization/Deindustrialization" preceding headers and thought it would be funnier to continue the pattern. Feel free to adjust it if you want, though. 04:24, February 15, 2016 (UTC)

I finally got around to following Spike's advice and archived my older discussions. I thought to do this by year, although the results look a little... uneven. Ah well, I might try squishing it around some other way a little later. 01:45, February 22, 2016 (UTC)
I despair that you are spending time on an article about a YouTube channel, as these are often overt advertisements or self-promotion, and in any case cover an Internet meme on another website that the average reader won't know about unless you link him there. In short, even if not written as an ad, they have the effect of an ad.19:01 6-Mar-16
- To be honest, I wasn't sure if I was going to fully go through on writing an article to cover this YouTube channel (which Wikipedia claims is Australia's most-viewed YouTube channel and has over 6 million subs), so I just quickly sketched something up under my userspace to play around with and see if it held any promise. Based on your feedback, I'll chuck this experiment into the recycling bin and look elsewhere. Thanks for letting me know! 19:19, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
- P.S. You can delete the page for me if you want. Apparently I can't since I'm not an admin, even if it's in my own userspace. 19:23, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
Not prohibited, but you should be sure any article offers the general reader something over and above the YouTube channel itself. Following your link to Wikipedia: Yes, word of its existence has reached independent third parties, though as a phenomenon, it is not clear that it has become larger than itself. As for its "bizarre and misleading instructional videos," that raises a separate problem that is the same as when Uncyclopedians try to write about comedy acts like Borat Sagdiyev or especially about comedy websites such as The Onion: Rather than write about guys who do funny stuff, shouldn't we just do funny stuff?19:30 6-Mar-16
On deletion, sleep on it and list it on QVFD if you are sure. Yes, it is baffling that users can't delete from userspace, likewise that edits to one's own userspace aren't autopatrolled. Bottom line, creating a page whose name includes a slash does invoke some navigational aids, but it's basically just another page. 19:30 6-Mar-16
- Just had a thought for another possible alternative: might it be a better strategy to write an article about the channel in terms of its history, rise to prominence and cultural impact? This of course means what I have now would have to be totally rewritten, but it could have more substance to it. Or might this not work out either? 19:40, March 6, 2016 (UTC)
I didn't read what you wrote at all, but was just offering general guidance. A fake narrative of its history and impact would ensure that you were doing more than just trying to retell the joke it tells, and the fact that it is also involved in fakery could be woven in subtly. "Substance" is the thing.19:48 6-Mar-16
I reply on VFH. Try again now; I removed certain passages (pun) assuming the Wikia filter matched on the six-letter word. Still all butthole humor, all the time, in my opinion. Come to VFD as well!00:39 28-Mar-16
- Thanks, Spike! My intended changes from my attempted edit went through. I also took a look at VFD while waiting; see my vote on 9-11 (video game) (which might be part of a larger infestation of problem articles). 00:51, March 28, 2016 (UTC)
Might be? It is. The navigation template at the top leads to more of them, equally awful. I nominate one whenever anyone edits it.00:58 28-Mar-16
Sure you may enter. Don't ask (strike your question, even) and just do it (by adding your name as a row in the table and picking one or two categories of article). I'll announce the timing and put up a site message as soon as a third judge volunteers.21:18 28-Mar-16
Am enjoying this! You even bring a new take to the very old Fat Americans joke! In Morphology, I would not contemplate nuclear war but instead explain how wartime use of whales led to the Hindenberg disaster. Next step is to assign to whales the affectations of fat people, such as demanding "reasonable accommodation" at work and all the best parking spaces, sleeping with a CPAP machine, and displaying a placard on the windshield. 23:46,23:59 28-Mar-16
- Thanks! This is a topic I've been meaning to get around to since I saw it on the most wanted articles list. 01:54, March 29, 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for signing up! For a chance to win a photo of a great prize, write a funny article on Lemonade, before the end of 18 April! 02:50 1-Apr-16
- Funny, it seemed to me like we already had an article on the subject. But I'll see what I can do to make this one unique and refreshing. 04:06, April 1, 2016 (UTC)
It seems you are not only familiar with the chat-bot but have the beginnings of a comedy strategy. Will you attempt it next?02:46 5-May-16
- I do indeed have some ideas. It's a shame that CrappyUncyclopedian1111's version never really took off the ground, but I will see what I can do. 10:42, May 5, 2016 (UTC)
Crappy, by the way, picked a new name, ClashAndRekt (and voted for your feature). 13:37 5-May-16
