edit Welcome!

Hello, DaveFromMars, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:DaveFromMars/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If the current colonization doesn't suit your fancy, then browse our rewrite and idea categories. We have lots of articles just sitting around for someone to improve, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. Again, welcome!  -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 04:16, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

edit Your note to Zombiebaron

FYI, I've never seen anyone so nicely thank a user for a welcome message, and in complete sentences and with a flair for the written word. You may have promise, and will get laid many times because of your association with this site. Welcome, the world has now become your oyster. Aleister 4:28 30-5-'11

p.s. Ah, after seeing your edits on Bjork Farts Again I may have to take back some words or letters in my previous message. Banning may follow you all the days of your life.
p.s.s. I should explain. Several things. You shouldn't write where you're from, or just plop in the middle of a short news story an interest in big tits and an offer to blow you. You don't talk to the reader in a news story by saying "Honestly, this is such and such" (this is a parody of news). And the page itself is a take-off on an earlier page by the same author. I must sign off now, but that's a start, and I have a feeling you will learn stuff quickly.

edit Hello

Hi, and glad you are enjoying the place. Have you found the party yet? Do you surf recent changes, or vote on VFH (whoring my "Skunk" article as long as I'm here. Please give it a read if you have three minutes, and vote for it only if you like it.")? What are your favorite things here so far? Oh, and if you leave people notes, please do so on their talk (discussion) pages, and not on the user pages. Tends to clog up the works. More soon, but good luck again. Aleister 13:37 1-6-'11

edit References

I cleaned up your references a bit on your UnNews story. I notices one was used three times, and "named" it so they would bunch up. I also bracketed your urls, and double bracked your uncyc refs. Just trying to help.--K evillips эвилипс MUN,CM,NS,3of7 00:59, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

That's great! Thanks.DaveFromMars 01:00, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

Notes on my talk page too. Aleister 1:04 6-6-'11

edit UnNews:David Cameron - Nick Clegg wedding announced

I see that Aleister told you I'd drop by. Completely spoiled the surprise. I hate him so hard.

Anyway, great UnNews. I gather that this was your first? Now you can gather that it's on the Front Page and in the box on the Main Page just by clicking the links. Fame, fortune and exposure, all on your first story. Keep up the good work, and if you have any questions, let me know. ~ Humbuck Talk 03:11, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

Congrats! And yes, he does hate me so hard. Always with the "You're so hard, I can't take it Al, slower. I hate you when you're this hard." It's difficult to concentrate on what I'm doing with all the squealing going on. Much like Cameron and Clegg. Aleister 11:57 6-6-'11
Ala Monty Python..."How hard is it??". Take it easy! DaveFromMars 16:32, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

edit "WHAT DO YOU MEAN 'WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?' WE ARE RIOTING BECAUSE THE CANUCKS LOST AND WE ARE SO COOL AND WE HAVE BIG MUSCLES! SO LET'S TEAR THE PLACE DOWN! ANGRY–ANGRY–ANGRY!!! BUT HAVE A NICE DAY, EH?"

I lolled! Thanks for the small contrib, buddy! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 06:16, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

My pleasure. It just seemed so Canadian....DaveFromMars 21:45, June 20, 2011 (UTC)

edit One Week Ban

If you check Zombiebaron's talk page you will see I asked about your one week ban. It was upheld. Now I am going to suggest that if you want to come back, accept the ban and return after seven days. It's never a good idea to get into a revert war with any user, especially an admin. Because I looked at your other contributions on the log you appear to be a writer who is here for positive reasons and not stupidity/vandalism. That is why I wrote on Zombiebaron's page about your one week exclusion.

However you feel about the ban right now, just let it past. Virtually everyone here (including me) has been banned at some stage or other. It is never pleasant. Once you have done the seven day sin bin vacation, come back and have a look around the site to see if you want to stay or not. But I strongly advise that you don't resort to sock puppetry in the meantime as the administrators will automatically extend the ban. Also stay away from reverting too after the ban, if you don't like something talk to an admin on their page but keep it civil. As far as I know, your ban doesn't include IRC, the chat channel, (see front page chatroom link) but if you are still feeling sore about the ban, I would suggest you don't use it for a few days. So good luck and hope to see you here on the 18th. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 21:32, July 12, 2011 (UTC)

Test Successful - Thanks for the help Romartus! :-)

What are you doing Dave?....--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 07:08, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

edit Image upload

Please can you check if I file of that already exists, and if so upload it under a different file name, in order to avoid adding irrelevant images to other articles. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 23:52, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

I double checked - this is the only file with the name mefunnyugly.jpg that I could find. Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 21:19, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
It will also need to be a mite smaller as well, you will notice that other users have smaller icons in their signatures. BTW. This site isn't all about new articles, there are plenty that need repairing, improving etc. Good luck - and I am glad you decided to come back after that earlier ban. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 10:26, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
I reduced it to 15 px, which looks about the same size as others I went and looked at. Thanks for the tip! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 21:19, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
No problem. Check out the forums and the voting pages to what else is going on here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 12:35, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

edit Learn2Preview

Dave, the 59 tweaks to the start of this page are making it hard to peruse what else is happening on the wiki. Would you please get in the habit of clicking on Preview to see how your edits will look, then continuing to edit and click on Save only when you get to a good stopping point? You can make the same edits but log fewer changes to the wiki. Spıke ¬ 22:22 2-Jun-14

OK, thanks for the tip!I appreciate it. That does make it a lot easier. Thanks! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 23:12, June 2, 2014 (UTC)

Another one for free: If you start your post with :, as I've now done for you above, it will set your post off from other people's posts. This is sort of a fashion here, as you can see in the previous section. Other users keep indenting with :: and so on; I pick an indent level and stick with it, as my PCs are old and my screens are small.

Now, sorry about reverting you on Anniversaries. Much of the humor here is a twisted take on something real, and Anniversaries -- especially as they go straight to the main page on the designated date -- should be a twisted take on something that really happened on that date; not George Bush's brain surgery next year on this date. Normally, user contributions have to go through a vote (at VFHS, where you are welcome), not use Anniversaries as a shortcut. Cheers! Spıke ¬ 23:25 2-Jun-14

I have to say that having been here before and after, with a gap of being gone for about a year in the middle, I like the way you are doing it much better than before. This site has improved considerably over the last 4-5 months or so and is much funnier and much more effective in its satire. Did you wind up as one of the admins? Keep up the good work! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 23:22, June 2, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you! but I must give you another pro-tip: You originally posted that not to my talk page but to my user page! The user page is an introduction to other Uncyclopedians, normally at the complete discretion of OP. In fact, much of your work today on your own talk page properly belongs on your user page. Regarding the present versus the past, there are several other Admins, but the focus is now on the quality of the product and not the comfort of the author, especially those specializing in Bowel Movement Humor. Spıke ¬ 23:30 2-Jun-14

As I said before, thanks for the input. It has been a while since I have been on the site (I was getting a second Master's degree in History Education and I have not had any free time for the last two and a half years :-). Thanks for all the help, and I will get oriented again once I start finding my way about. If its all right, I may ask you some more clearly stupid questions as I get back into the swing of things. I really appreciate the input and the help! If it matters, here is an example of a piece I wrote here back in 2011. Let me know what I need to change (style, tone, content, etc.) for the current website, which in my view has better writing all the way around. (The link is UnNews:David Cameron - Nick Clegg wedding announced. Thanks for the assistance and have a good week! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 23:43, June 2, 2014 (UTC)

Yikes! Two M.A.s mean you will qualify to drive two taxis!

I left out a key piece, which doesn't seem to matter, as you have taken the hint: It is calm enough here that I can keep track of changes to your talk page, and future readers will benefit if both sides of the conversation are in the same place. Yet another pro-tip: When referencing pages on this same website, don't use a complete URL (I take it they're now called URIs) but use double brackets and just use the page name. That way, spaces don't have to be turned to underlines. See what I've done to your post. I'll look at the page next. First tip: Keep headlines as tight as possible; I'd refer to "Cameron/Clegg wedding". Spıke ¬ 00:00 3-Jun-14

Welcome back Dave! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:54, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnNews:David Cameron - Nick Clegg wedding announced

First impression: Article hangs together well; far too many footnotes for an UnNews; although UnNews (uniquely on the website) is welcome to have Sources to bring readers up to speed on Real Life, four Sources and five footnotes suggest that you want to beat the reader over the head, and make me wonder if you are advocating a position rather than just trying to get a laugh out of me. "As we previously reported here" is an awful lede, even if we did; in general, never interpret facts that you have not yet given. {{Old news}}, which you go on to use, suffices to point your reader to a previous item in a chain of UnNewses. The reference to the Hung Parliament is cute, but this reader (being one ocean to the west) is clueless as to why it is apt for 2010.

In the second paragraph, "one senior Tory MP" detracts from the UnNews. (Why doesn't the reporter know the name of the MP — or at least have a good excuse why he can't use the name?) Recurring use of repeated footnotes makes me think I have to study the Sources to see how apt your humor is; it would be better if some of it jumped out at me, perhaps departing from allegory to clever wording or even streaks of sheer wackiness.

By the third paragraph, I am certainly in over my head, not knowing or not remembering British politics news from four years ago. Queen's fainting spell? justmadeitup.com? Then this relates to nothing? It is a nice dismount, but a final twist that did relate to something would be better.

In return: What's your impression of the stuff on the Front Page right now? Spıke ¬ 00:11 3-Jun-14

I like the front page in that it provides a good diversity of material. I always wondered if it isn't just a tad too much like that other pedia, but in general the front page is pretty good. Perhaps having it a more thematic around a general idea or event? Just a thought. For the most part, it is a 8 out of 10. Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 19:29, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

Sigh! We did that once — had separate sections (in garish colors), such as UnNews:2010 Oil Spill. That led to a ton of drama and a force-reformatting of UnNews for the express purpose of better resembling you-know-where. Spıke ¬ 19:36 3-Jun-14

Like I said, this is overall pretty good, and resembling you know where may or may not be a laudable goal. There is nothing wrong with our page looking original is there? Let me think about how it could be tweaked a bit, but all in all it is not bad as is. Whatever happens, the last thing needed is a ton more drama. As my grandfather used to say in Swedish "Om det inte är trasigt, laga det inte." - If its not broke, don't fix it. :-) Take care! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 22:07, June 3, 2014 (UTC)

edit VFH

Dave, read carefully and/or work from the table at VFHS--Paramedic already went up; the ballot's closed! Spıke ¬ 02:16 7-Jun-14

OK, ooops. Thanks for the heads up. I will read it more carefully next time. Thanks! Mefunnyugly Dave From Mars (SPEAK!) 00:39, June 8, 2014 (UTC)
