edit hello there
Would you be interested in writing in Uncyclopedia's first ever writing competition just for noobs? If so read this and submit your name! 11:29, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for finally joining the conversation (in your Change Summary). You can come to VFD and comment and/or vote on the survival of the article itself. However, as well as me, you are reverting an Admin who bans people just for looking at him funny. More importantly, Uncyclopedia (as laid out in our charming How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid) tends to like paragraphs of prose and not lists of one-liners. One reason for this is that the latter invites every Anon on Earth to visit briefly and make the list even longer. I agree that speculation on what a Tesco's in Chicago etc. might sell (deriving from a stereotype of the residents) is an attempt at humor. But it isn't good writing. 17:17 19-Dec-12
- Hello there, thanks for posting your message (I haven't had a message for ages!).
- If you like I can take out the foreign ones, just have the UK ones, which I think its quite funny tbh, the list has been there for a while now so I think it stood up quite well to the test of time.
- I will take out the chicago/other foreign ones, see if that's any better maybe? - Eggs6131
(I moved your comment here to unify the conversation for the benefit of any third parties who wander by later, and indented your post as is usually done.) Removing the supposed U.S. Tescos would be good, given that there is no explanation of how Tesco supposedly decided to come to the U.S. It will also show that you are doing something more thoughtful than just overturning the edits of other users. But now onto the larger point that I make at VFD: Is Tescos doing anything that could not be done by the much better article at Tesco? 17:30 19-Dec-12
- Maybe you could consider merging the two articles, then? - Eggs6131
Having disclosed my nationality (by the use of "come to the U.S." above, I am hardly the one to polish an article on Tesco's. (But I know who might).
Typing on talk pages is indeed the way users communicate, as on Wikipedia. But type FOUR tildes at the end so that you append not just a signature but the time of day. I assume you have a signature file on Wikipedia (in which case THREE tildes works) but you don't have one in effect here. And please, I prefer that we continue a conversation on the same page that it started.17:39 19-Dec-12
If you say Tesco is relevant, I'll concede. How did you know I would see your Change Summary?! No, people working Special:RecentChanges don't get to watch any television. 11:48 19-Mar-13
"We are very much amused." doesn't look encyclopedic. Please maintain the superficial resemblance to an encyclopedia rather than use the first person to savor your own role as humor tour-guide, thanks.12:02 25-Mar-13
I have undone your change here. Obviously an article on Uranus is going to have some anus jokes, but yours, here in the Intro, is too blunt. Are you Beavis or Butthead? And the reference to Futurama makes me think it's not even original.14:04 1-May-13
