edit Here comes...

BePrepared Uncyclopedian of the Month (End of 2014)

Congratulations! Hope you come back! Anton (talk) 14:58, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

Whoops! I am terribly misinformed. Sorry. In any case, congratulations! Anton (talk) 14:59, February 7, 2015 (UTC)

edit The Inbetweeners (2)

Thank you for your QVFD. They weren't exact copies; Romartus had some token hacks to one, so I did it in the reverse direction as you suggested. We would normally not have "The" in a page name, but this was the name of a show. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:42 18-Sep-15

Well, there goes my contributions. Now some anon peasant will instead take credit for all my hard work! --ConCass2 (talk) 09:41, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

I undid this. It looks as though everyone's edit is now reflected in the history. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:12 19-Sep-15

I am now the author of a page that has been created twice. How cool. --ConCass2 (talk) 12:31, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

That ain't nothing! I don't know the record, but there are pages here that have been created a dozen times. If you pick a mass-media title, you may see a legend describing its most recent deletion, so you can do it again. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:09 19-Sep-15

I did mean a page that has two creations in its "history" section, not counting pages that were deleted and created again. In this case, I crafted an amazing epic of humour, and a few edits later some anon also "creates article with "'''The Inbetweeners''' is a..."". - ConCass2 (talk) 15:03, September 19, 2015 (UTC)

edit Soundgarden

Thanks for doing more work on this. It's better than the original, but I ought not install it, as the original is complete and yours is not. Yours is the right way to use pun song titles: to embellish sections and paragraphs, not all together in a lifeless list. However, please avoid writing about what someone was thinking; encyclopedias don't, and you can easily rephrase these points.

As you were writing about Seattle neighbors and grunge, and as my neighbor fired up the bulldozer early today, I was wondering if you could make hay out of confusing grunge with grudge. Maybe these neighbors bore grudges and that is why they turned to making loud noises. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:23 25-Oct-15

That is a good suggestion, but I'll need figure out how I would be able to word that into the article. I'll keep it in mind. Would you mind pointing out which part comes off as a bit unencyclopedic? I'll rewrite those parts. Thanks for the advice. ConCass2 (talk) 16:16, October 25, 2015 (UTC)

"They decided to contrast each other"--How does the encyclopedia writer know what they decided? Instead document what they did. Cheers! Spıke Radiomicrophone22:01 25-Oct-15

PS--You just changed "the band has" to "the band have". As I read that this band had a "native Seattle," the new dialect will baffle the reader; use American English for this one. Spıke Radiomicrophone21:38 26-Oct-15

edit Stone Temple Pilots

EpicWinner seems to be spending the day looking for revert wars. However, I side with him in paring the Formerly-Known-As at the start of this article. See UN:LIST, at Also-Known-As. Either wisecracking with something's name or bringing out a list of epithets, right at the start of the article, is not great comedy and takes place well before the article has delivered any great comedy. Also, he may have simplified the structure of sentences and paragraphs. Spıke Radiomicrophone22:15 14-Nov-15

I looked at his edit with a more open mind now. Seeing as the new intro seemed drier in tone, removed many of the jokes (and replaced them with a factual run-down of the band), plus the fact that he had recently and largely edited a large collection of articles on my watchlist (which may have come off as, as you put it, "looking for revert wars"), after reading it I assumed it was an unhelpful edit. I probably should not have. - ConCass2 (talk) 22:33, November 14, 2015 (UTC)

I did not indeed read the entire changed paragraphs and manually compare them, as our awful diff-engine forces us to do. "Factual run-downs" are no fun to read. On the other hand, an article whose start seems to be dry in tone may set the reader up when we suddenly throw crap at him. You decide. Spıke Radiomicrophone22:42 14-Nov-15

edit VFD

Please remember to attach {{VFD}} to pages that you nominate for deletion. Also, remember to fix the score count (this one was automatic, as the count starts at 1). Spıke Radiomicrophone21:39 17-Nov-15

Thanks for reminding to add VFD. I usually do remember to change the score count when I vote. - ConCass2 (talk) 21:43, November 17, 2015 (UTC)

edit Bass guitar

Your new photo doesn't fit the article's thesis, that bass guitarists are poor musicians, which it pursues so faithfully that the reader might actually think we believe it. Your photo pulls it in a different direction, that bass guitarists are farmers/funny-looking/unsophisticated.

But reading about WP:Les Claypool, I think it would be more promising to retell the real story: Rancho Relaxo? tapping? slapping? strumming? Claypool could be portrayed as an equally poor musician as the article already describes. Spıke Radiomicrophone20:02 20-Nov-15

PS--I've now done so, in the new Famous bass guitarists. It needs two more. Spıke Radiomicrophone20:28 20-Nov-15

Even if my image ultimately gave that impression, my original joke wasn't meant to be that bass guitarists are farmers/funny-looking/unsophisticated, but was attempting to add to your thesis that bassists are essentially amateur guitarists by showing that farmers - who are generally very busy - are so busy that they don't have time to take lessons on "real" instruments like the guitar or piano, so they take up a "simple" instrument like the bass (although the "funny-looking" part may have had something to do with why I chose such an occupation to illustrate a busy person). - ConCass2 (talk) 20:37, November 20, 2015 (UTC)

After I said it needs two more, I added two more, as you did too. Together we have handled the "generation problem" that Romartus mentioned on VFD (where your Ramble On was the Led Zeppelin lyrics I recognized). The result should be plenty funny to bassists of several generations, cheers! Spıke Radiomicrophone21:03 20-Nov-15

"Rambling on" is a British phrase similar to "blabbling on", as in going off-topic or continuing to speak but making no sense (as the VFD article in question was doing). As a non-fan who only knows Zeppelin from the big hits, I hadn't a clue what was going on. (If you do have "rambling on" in the US and merely understood, then ignore the former statement) - ConCass2 (talk) 21:14, November 20, 2015 (UTC)

So you are...rambling on? Yes, the idiom is used here. Ramble On is full of references to Lord of the Rings and those Brits used "ramble on" to mean end a pleasant sojourn and get back to pursuit of the quest. Spıke Radiomicrophone21:22 20-Nov-15

edit VFH

VFH right now is a smorgersboard of vital tools and sound advice for “real life”. Whether you are a college kid from Sault Ste. Marie or a SQL coder from California struggling with the concept of democracy, all bassists are covered. Please cast your vote for the front page and help spread the word!  EStop Easy button 11:15, November 22, 2015 (UTC)

edit Scott Weiland

We only got three Symbol delete vote delete votes after two weeks, but as you had suggested, I made this a redirect to Stone Temple Pilots. I checked that article and it already has plenty to say about Weiland. If you wanted to pull more in, the material is not deleted and you can still get at the text using its History tab; for example, by clicking here. Spıke Radiomicrophone01:24 27-Nov-15

edit Tower of Babel

After our discussion on VFD, sorry to beat you to this. The Tower of Babel from Doom was not mentioned in Wikipedia's article on Doom, but Google pointed me back to a Wikia wiki on Doom, so I have added back Other Towers of Babel. Flip your vote if you see fit. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:37 28-Nov-15

Nice enthusiasm! but removing {{VFD}} is the job of the Poopsmith, which Expert3222 will do when he archives the ballot, which he will do after waiting a day or so in order to give notice to the other voters. So I put it back. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:25 29-Nov-15

edit User:Cg097/The Place Where All The Missing Socks Go

Back in September, you voted for this article's deletion. I had a dissenting opinion of its value, so it got userspaced so I could work on it. Now that I'm finished with it, could you look it over to make sure it has improved? You can leave comments here. I'm asking a couple other users the same thing, so it's okay if you can't. Cg097 (talk) 07:13, December 2, 2015 (UTC)

edit Forum:2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl

Will you volunteer to write another article that I will assign (this Friday) at random? Spıke Radiomicrophone15:26 20-Jan-16

Believe it or not, "writing at random" sounds like something I would fail miserably at. Do explain more. ConCass2 (talk) 15:39, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Click on the link above and add your name to the Official Entry Form if you like. It is not that you write at random but that the page name is selected for you. If you don't believe you can do well under such conditions, then just keep doing what you enjoy doing. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:10 20-Jan-16

I shall give it a go. My doubt comes from how - if my recent contributions are of any indication - I take a very long time to write. ConCass2 (talk) 16:25, January 20, 2016 (UTC)

Very good! Under the announced terms, you'll have two weeks plus a weekend. The worst that can happen is that you don't win! Spıke Radiomicrophone16:41 20-Jan-16

edit 2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl assignments

For a chance to win a photo of a great prize, write a funny article on Secret, and/or one on Beach Boys, before the end of the Super Bowl! Spıke Radiomicrophone19:03 22-Jan-16

edit Mesopotamia on VFD

Checking the history is indeed a chore and thanks for your confession on VFD. If you think the 2006 version is good enough to stay, please strike your nomination and I will close the ballot (at the end of 24 hours, as it now "belongs to the floor" and there could conceivably be a groundswell of hate despite my revert). For extra credit, please add a photo to the article! Spıke Radiomicrophone14:18 23-Jan-16

edit S4C

Thank you for that revert! Josgyns started out with some sensible edits but graduated to page-blanking, including blanking of a page in userspace and blanking of a page for which he uploaded a video, and I warned him and then whacked him for 1 day. This page is between his two stages, but in deleting a section head, what is left is way out of context and he deserves the revert. My only conceivable explanation: As I always say, "Don't edit drunk." Spıke Radiomicrophone18:32 1-Feb-16

My theory is that this user stumbled upon the article on S4C, saw a TV series he/she enjoys being mocked, and tried to remove all references to the show, including (unsuccessfully) moving the insults into another section at the expense of some other show. As "Josgyn" is a Welsh word for someone who is very overly Welsh, it makes sense to me that a show held in high regard by the Welsh community would be subject to defence. ConCass2 (talk) 21:25, February 1, 2016 (UTC)

Maybe the more he read, the angrier he got, and that is why he turned into a blanker. Spıke Radiomicrophone21:28 1-Feb-16

PS--Please reconsider your revert at Welsh Language or improve the article generally. I had told him at User talk:Josgyns about repeating the same joke tediously and I let his edits stand as they seemed to be based on my recommendation. Spıke Radiomicrophone22:47 1-Feb-16

edit Winner!

Flat football

Thank you for competing in the 2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl!

Your entry, Secret, won the bronze and has been moved to the main encyclopedia! Spıke Radiomicrophone13:16 14-Feb-16

I assume the article can be edited after the contest is over, rather than being preserved a la a featured article? (Correct me if I am mistaken) ConCass2 (talk) 14:11, February 14, 2016 (UTC)
As the author is you, you can improve the article (correct mistakes or update as regards a biography for example). How much to change a featured article is always a difficult one but it is different if say someone else came along and went in for a full re-write. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:12, February 24, 2016 (UTC)

edit B

Thanks for your vote to keep; it was I. Multiple votes against VFD means it survives, but I will not close the ballot until the Poopsmith comes by and removes the last batch of closed ballots. Can you think of other Bs (along the lines of mediocrity) other than B movies and B-sides of vinyl records? Spıke Radiomicrophone22:40 7-Mar-16

I came up with a pun about the musical note B. A small donation, but it may do. ConCass2 (talk) 23:26, March 7, 2016 (UTC)

edit Jews

You wrote on VFD that "I enjoy a good Jew joke, but...." My best is at Tefillin. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:06 4-Apr-16

I don't know what a tefillin is, until this article educated me. I bet that other Wiki's article is complete bollocks. ConCass2 (talk) 21:27, April 4, 2016 (UTC)

edit Rock and Roll

Please use your recent Revert link rather than Undo when undoing a vandal; or at least click on [Patrol this edit] to indicate that you have taken care of it. Spıke Radiomicrophone21:04 23-May-16

I wasn't aware there was a difference (other than reverting more than one edit by a single user). My bad. ConCass2 (talk) 13:18, May 24, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. Yup, the relevant difference is that setting the Patrolled flag lets me know that someone has looked at it, so I don't have to, while Undo is just an edit that does not declare that the undone edit has (thereby) been Patrolled. We have hidden the details toward the end of UN:HAX, along with a gadget that lets you roll back all of a vandal's edits with a single keystroke, and a gadget that lets you type a Revert Summary if warranted. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:32 24-May-16

edit Primus

Anon is back following your revert. I can't tell whether his edits are better than the prior text. Let me know if you want the page to be protected against Anons. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:44 28-May-16

Anon made two edits, the second one was small and not an improvement, but this was the only one I saw. I reverted the second one without knowing about the first until after it. I guess I'll have to check again. ConCass2 (talk) 09:48, May 29, 2016 (UTC)
On second thoughts... there might be a bit much there. Understandably, I am unwilling to check through the whole thing. ConCass2 (talk) 09:48, May 29, 2016 (UTC)
