edit Welcome to Uncyclopedia

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, EditorE, 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:EditorE/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 21:05 23-Feb-13

edit Pussy

Uncyclopedia is a site for original comedy writing, not a digest of amusing stuff available elsewhere. Thus, we do not want your YouTube link and we do not want the lyrics (such as they are) to a song someone else recorded. Please do not revert again. Spıke Ѧ 17:07 2-Mar-13

edit Captain Obvious

Have you yet sat down with a copy of our guide to writing comedy, How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid? I spend a lot of my time telling anonymous editors that an overlong list doesn't get funnier if they make it even longer, and that includes adding 50 identical copies of anything to an article. Any "listcruft" encourages Anon to add his one-liner without giving any thought to the theme of the article. The above guide explains why in-jokes, including Captain Obvious himself, have long ago stopped being funny. They convince the drive-by editors who have nothing funny to say that it would be "funny" just to say something true and attribute it to Captain Obvious. It's all there in the guide; please read it.

edit {{c}} overuse

Quick note - this is an ugly template. And jokes created by its use (or using <s>) rarely work. On that Kim whats-her-face article, the first paragraph is littered with it. It destroys any humour you may have in the intro, and so destroys the potential for a good article. Just so you know.                               Puppy's talk page01:58 11 Mar 2013

It struck me, too, as more hatchet-job than comedy. Spıke Ѧ 02:22 11-Mar-13

edit Aqua (band)

Hello EditorE, as your {{WIP}} expired on this article, and it's not really up to scratch, I've placed a {{fix}} tag on it, which gives you another month. But you need to put some work into it (formatting and working on the humor bit as well). Drop a line if you need help. ~Jewriken.GIF 09:36, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

edit Album art

The illustration you just added to Album and Compact Disc makes no point and I don't see the humor in it. In Album it breaks the format of a disambiguation page. Therefore, I've undone these changes, sorry. Spıke Ѧ 02:16 29-Mar-13

edit Good

When you read the template you've added to this article, it makes a play on the article's title. But before you think about it, it seems to be just another template that our overnight vandals add to an article to tell the reader what to think about it before they've even started to read it. Would you think about whether you could make this look more encyclopedic? Spıke Ѧ 17:02 9-Jun-13

edit Forum:User database merge

People who have more edits on Wikia-global than Uncyclopedia (and have more than 1000 edits on Uncyclopedia) and do not have matching email addresses. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:59, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

edit Cal Chuchesta

This article was a single paragraph, ridiculing the person in the style of the person. That's not enough for an entry in the main encyclopedia. The person merits a full Uncyclopedia article but not a prank article for each of his personas. So I hope there are not "many more" in the works. Spıke Ѧ 00:37 8-Jun-15
