Spike is a grumpy old dog. You can stroke his fur, or you can be smitten by his stick. It is up to you.

Hello, CutlassPrincessX, and welcome to Uncyclopedia. This is a wiki (a collection of pages anyone can edit). Words in blue are "links" and can be clicked to take you to another page. This wiki is for comedy. It pretends it's Wikipedia, but we make people laugh, not bore them. If you aren't interested in a fake encyclopedia but in writing fake news stories, we have UnNews, and there are other projects for scripts, lyrics, how-to guides, and so on.

What you can do

You can create your own article. For starters, create it under your own name; for example, User:CutlassPrincessX/Bedbug. (The red instead of blue is a link to a page that doesn't yet exist.) We have a list of articles that need to be created. You can help without writing articles; just read articles and, if you see an improvement in writing or in comedy, jump in and edit it. In fact, you can help without writing at all, such as organizing, watching for vandals, or even greeting other new users.

What you need

To write articles, you need a sense of humor and an ability to write good English. We all have strengths and weaknesses and you can get help in any area. But everyone needs an ability to work with other people. Be polite, positive, and helpful toward others, and assume others are doing the same toward you.

What to read

Here are some pages that might help you:

For personal help
  • The administrators are willing to help you, and several Uncyclopedians are willing to adopt you.
  • I will watch this page for a while and will know if you edit it. Afterward, you can contact me on my own talk page.
  • If you've written an article, we have a Proofreading service where someone will correct your mistakes, and a review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read your article and suggest improvements.
How to post to talk pages

Please follow these general rules:

  • Add comments at the end of a talk page so people notice them.
  • Start your paragraphs with one or more : characters to indent them and set them off from other people's posts.
  • At the end, type ~~~~ (four tildes), which gets replaced by your user name and the current date and time.
  • Don't delete anyone's messages. In case of any controversy, we depend on an accurate record of what was written. You may disavow your remarks by striking them through like this.

I hope you enjoy it here and write a lot of funny stuff! Spıke ¬ 20:54 29-May-13

Hello and welcome! Thanks for your correction on this page; what was there before made no sense. Spıke ¬ 20:54 29-May-13

edit One thing about your userpage

Rather than a link, I reccomend just placing the image directly on your userpage. If you want me to get the image uploaded to Uncyc, and then put on your page, tell me so on my talk page. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 04:06, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

Allright, I also made you a sig in User:CutlassPrincessX/sig, which you can now change to your heart's content. Now, to make this your default sig, put exactly this in your my preferences page, under signature (and make sure to enable wikitext): {{subst:Nosubst:User:CutlassPrincessX/sig}}. If you need any help, just put another message on my talkpage. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 05:18, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'm glad to see that you put some stuff on your userpage, but the mess of userboxes is a bit... unprofessional, so if you want more help in formatting your userpage, just ask me again. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 19:16, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

edit Bacon?

Double bacon pizza, xtra cheese, eggplant, garlic, extra Shoggoths. Please. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 16:08, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

I'll stick to Pizza--Uncycloperson (talk) 16:45, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

edit Adding images

Adding images is not difficult. First, create a link to your image like so: File:Imagename.jpg. If your image is a jpeg image, this should work. If it is a .png, use File:Imagename.png. (Don't worry if it is a redlink at first. If you want a thumbnail image right aligned with a caption, the link should look like this:
File:Imagename.jpg
your caption here
. Then, click on the redlink, and you will get a screen that tells you that you are about to upload a file. You should have the file you want to upload on your hard drive. So navigate to the file to upload from your hard drive, and select that file for uploading. Once the file has uploaded, your image should appear where the redlink was. Sometimes it takes a couple of minutes depending on Wikia's servers. Finally, have a read of Uncyclopedia:How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid THE IMAGE VERSION for what to do or not to do. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:15, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

edit User Page

I like it. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 01:59, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

What about my userpage???? *Denza jumps around like a 2 year old on 500grams of caffeine. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 02:05, June 13, 2013 (UTC) (Seriously though, what do you think about my userpage?)(<Shameless self-promotion)

Beautiful in its wrath and angst.--Uncycloperson (talk) 02:21, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

*Denza starts crying Why won't anyone look at my userpage... I made it much better than before!!! --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 02:28, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
Disregard the above, twas a joke. Seriously, don't take the above line seriously. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 14:27, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

edit Ugh

I answer the question you asked about uploading images from a tablet on my talk page. Simsie answers a different aspect of the question above.

I have deleted your article. As Cat the Colourful said elsewhere, the way to get a new article deleted is not to blank it nor to tag it but to list it on UN:QVFD. When you are the only author there is never an objection.

Your article was tagged by Admin ChiefjusticeDS and I agree with him. When your initial joke is that "nothing is known," you don't have enough humor for an Uncyclopedia article. The concept of an encyclopedia where article writers don't know anything seems funny, but it has been tried countless times before and it is totally effortless. HTBFANJS has many other examples of such mistakes.

If you think that, in time, you would be able to flesh it out, create an article in your userspace, like User:CutlassPrincessX/Ugh. Or just do what the Chief's tag said: Develop the article further! Cheers! Spıke ¬ 12:52 13-Jun-13

edit Dat Pic...

...may be unsuitable for Uncyclopedia. I mean, we do have some lax rating policies, but there may be a thing against that new image you put on your userpage, and Wikia (Our overlords) may find an issue with said image. I would get it run by an admin just to be safe. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 18:20, June 13, 2013 (UTC)

Eh, you're right. Kinda iffy. I better just change it... The Pirate PrincessCutlassPrincessX 18:23, June 13, 2013 (UTC)
Better still, read the part of Special:Upload about "Pornographic/shock/gore images...which serve little satirical purpose." To be of help, it is in bright orange. In practice, our landlady spends very little time wrestling with whether a given photo of self-mutilation has a "satirical purpose." Spıke ¬ 19:16 13-Jun-13
