Hello, Crouton-Logic, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If you want to find out what we're about then you can look through these links:
- Beginner's Guide
- Help Pages
- Our Vanity Policies - why we don't care about your friends
- How to be funny and not just stupid
Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button () above the edit box.
Don't want to write anything? That's fine, some of our best users don't write articles. Want help writing something? Just ask. Most users here are more than happy to ramble incoherently about your articles or your ideas. If you aren't sure who to ask just choose an admin and ask them.
If you need help, advice or a rotating garden gnome, then you can ask on my talk page and I'll get back to you as fast as I can. You can also look into the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program and get paired up with an established editor.
Enjoy yourself and remember the rules, especially the first 3.
I think your addition is funny! Only, starting the second paragraph with "Some would say" sounds less encyclopedic. Maybe you can find a way to deliver this punch line and stay "in character" as an encyclopedia article. Cheers!13:48 12-Feb-13
Would you please get involved with this article on a higher level, seeing as you're from Kansas? The Russian Reversal thing is trite, and an article doesn't really need quotations anyway (see my recent note at User talk:Magicrainbowunicorn). Moreover, changing it to attribute it to Yakov Smirnoff doesn't help, as it remains a Russian Reversal. Ideally, find a horribly inappropriate quote from a Kansas politician on education (explaining that to us ignorant readers) and use it to set the tone of the page.
Separately, regarding "Socialist Nazi Muslim Atheist Communists," the Board of Education may be all these things, but what you are doing is putting epithets down on the page, like memes, and expecting them to be funny without any work on your part. Follow the general rule that no unfunny list gets funnier by being four times as long. So dig in and write actual comedy rather than just prettying up the Trite that you found on this page. Thanks! 14:18 13-Feb-13
PS--Thanks for changing that. One other gaping thing: In the new paragraph, polling a 200% response is what we call a "nonsense number." This is a technique we have seen too often to regard as funny. It breaks your hold on the reader, that he is reading an encyclopedia article, and doesn't deliver laughs to make up for it. More tips like this are in UN:HTBFANJS. Cheers! 22:36 13-Feb-13
Doesn't "the exact center of the U.S.A." move every time a state is added to the Union or the U.S.A. takes over the management of some obscure Pacific island? Perhaps even leaves Kansas. Just a thought....23:40 13-Feb-13
- I don't think Pacific islands affect the exact center of the U.S.A, and the last time an official state was added was in the 50s. Thanks for fact checks to make sure my posts are quality, --Crouton-Logic: "Normal is just a setting on a dryer." (talk) 23:49, February 13, 2013 (UTC)
My dear sir, "facts" don't enter into this! just suggesting new comedy directions for you.00:38 14-Feb-13
Also, turns out that there were comedy-facts to be checked. Lebanon is the center of the contiguous U.S. . Thanks for comedy-fact checking! --Crouton-Logic: "Normal is just a setting on a dryer." (talk) 02:38, February 14, 2013 (UTC)
You have added some funny new themes; but unfortunately, again by making long lists longer, which risks inviting contributions by anonymous editors whose additional themes are not funny. Would you please develop some of these themes by instead writing full paragraphs? Thanks.13:52 14-Feb-13
