edit The start of an Uncyclopedia article
I undid a few of your edits today, but let others stand. The ones I undid mostly affected the first sentence of the article. This is a key moment in inducing the reader to decide to read the rest of the page, and everything about the start of the article has to work toward this goal. Typing nonsense--or seeing a long list, perhaps deciding that its length is the gag, and just making it longer--is not good enough, even if it might be a good edition further down.
When editing someone else's article, I hope you will read enough of it to know the approach the creator took before adding your own touch. An alternative, of course, is to create articles of your own. For more comedy tips, we have a guide to creating humor, thoughtfully and sensitively named How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid, which is available for your reference. Happy editing! 23:31 3-Apr-13
