Spike the Dog (06b)

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, Dpelle10, 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:Dpelle10/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 review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read it and tell you how to improve it.
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 Ѧ 02:52 11-Mar-13

edit Diego Buñodovar

I really like this one: It reads very much like an encyclopedia article, perfect for having the substance be satire. It will look more like an Uncyclopedia page if you add one or more photos, sprinkle links through the text, and avoid the extra spacing between sections. Add a See also section at the end if you like. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 02:52 11-Mar-13

PS--We prevented your initial move because you were not logged in and we had no way of knowing it was you. Spıke Ѧ 02:55 11-Mar-13

PPS--Good to see you uploading more illustrations. The one I inserted is purely a placeholder. Ask on this page (instructions above) if you need help with the coding. Put a couple on the left as well as the right for variety. Thanks! Spıke Ѧ 20:21 11-Mar-13

Okay, now you've got to talk to me, because Wikipedia doesn't know any Diego Buñodovar. Is this you? If so, it is vanity, which you could have as your user page, but not in mainspace. Whom is this article about? Spıke Ѧ 00:09 12-Mar-13

Hmm, are you writing about Almodóvar? What you should do is play it straight with the page title. You see, that is the only way anyone is going to read it. Otherwise, you have made a joke, and you will tell it only to the people who have already guessed it! Inside the page, you can start with {{Title|Diego Buñodovar}} and that is how the heading will look. Then you can go on to refer to him however you want. Spıke Ѧ 01:12 12-Mar-13

Hey man, this isn't a vanity page. I was assigned to create a spanish director that meshes aspects of Luis Buñuel and Pedro Almodovar for a class, so my page is the product of the assignment. I'm probably breaking some rules by not making a page about someone who already exists, but I really need this page to stay up until March 19th, 2013 if possible. After that you can take it down if thats necessary. Thank you Spike --User:dpelle10

We are here for original comedy creations, not to help you get an A in a class. However, your article has some nice, subtle humor, so I'm not taking it anywhere, just trying to tell you how to get people to actually read it. Meanwhile, don't type a message to my UnNews archive page; it's a wonder I even saw it there. Spıke Ѧ 02:11 12-Mar-13

Very good, that's great that your teacher is assigning people to write creatively here - that would be a fine thing if it spread. Does your teacher write here? Am I maybe your teacher (and if I am, please treat SPIKE well, he's an admin and takes his job seriously. Now bring me an apple - no, not the fruit, a new laptap. Thanks.). Luis Bunuel was a genius of the first order. Please keep polishing your page if you'd like, and come back and write often too. Good to "meet" you, now get back to work and stop looking at the girl in the front row, that's my pleasure. "Aleister" 12:31 13-3-'13

To the point, do tell us how you picked Uncyclopedia to publish your term paper--as someone I suspect is a classmate of yours has arrived as well. Spıke Ѧ 12:35 13-Mar-13

We were assigned to either create a short film (seeing as we are film students) or come up with an uncyclopedia article. either way, it had to be an homage to one or more of the directors we studied during the course, so i decided to mesh luis buñuel with pedro almodovar. I actually have never heard of this site before this assignment, but i'm glad i know about it now. I also want to take this time to apologize if i at any point sounded snappy and mean. I'm not the most techy person in the world and i was struggling with the coding stuff. user:dpelle10

If you stick around and write more comedy, we owe your professor (perhaps an UnNews coffee mug) for guiding a couple new users here! If not, he owes us for the server time! At least, after the deadline, go back to editing your article and break it into two legitimate satires, one on each director. I wanted to add a line about how, in his current "home" nation, color photography would be embraced some time in the next decade (by way of explaining your black-and-white uploads). No, you never sounded snappy or mean to me--moreover, we are used to a little of it, as the coding rules here are hard to learn. My only issues were the motivation for the article; also, that you post messages without logging in (as you did again now!). So as not to gather information with which to sue you, please describe very generally what kind of institution, or general area or US state, you are from. Spıke Ѧ 16:25 13-Mar-13

I am an undergraduate at UC Santa Cruz. Thanks for helping have the best article possible. user:dpelle10

An institution about which there is darned little on Uncyclopedia, I might add. Spıke Ѧ 21:19 13-Mar-13

Bizarre! Now Uncyclopedia is an educational tool!! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:14, March 17, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah; if Uncyclopedia is in the coursework list, Dpelle10 needs to upload us a copy, which we will wear like a badge of honor. Spıke Ѧ 00:19 17-Mar-13
