Welcome!

Hello, EpicWinner, 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:EpicWinner/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! Sir Todd GUN WotM MI UotM NotM MDA VFH AotM Bur. AlBur. CM NS PC (talk)

Barack Obama

I reverted your edit as I didn't add anything to the article. There are plenty of other articles out there that need work. New comers that dive straight into a contentious subject (like Obama or Islam for example) are watched closely in case the spray can comes out. You can always ask an admin (see above) for advice. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 14:03, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, I just wanted to say that you might be interested in the "Preview" button. I see that several of your edits only changed the size of one picture. I recommend that you use the preview button for such edits, for it has several advantages: It makes the revision history easier to follow, and it doesn't clog up Special:RecentChanges. Also, I see you haven't given up on the Simpsons article... just be careful not to get into a revert war, although I've already left a note on Frosty's talkpage, because I think he shouldn't have reverted your previous edits, because the rollback tool, as I understand it, should only be used for reverting vandalism (except when an additional explanation is given, like how Romartus left a note on your talk page). But apparently, he doesn't "give a shit", so perhaps that means that you're free to do whatever you want. Have fun! Schamschi, 23:22, July 25, 2011 (UTC)

Barack Obama's birth

First: Don't get into a revert war, no matter what the reasoning is. Rollback is designed for removing vandalism, as it says above, but is also used when an edit is made that falls short of HTBFANJS. It's a quick way to undo edits. This particular article has been a vandal target in the past. I prefer to undo or revert edits first and them review them later. That's what I was doing when you reverted my change. This makes it very hard to view the changes in an unbiased light, and it's effectively just being a dick.

Second: I did review the changes, and I have only a minor concern. At the start you have a bundle of footnotes squeezed together on the one sentence. Even on Wikipedia - where sources matter - it's uncommon to see more than two sources for a point, and rarer still to see four. It's not a neater way of formatting. Beyond that, I have no objection with the changes, however this article was written by SPIKE, who has his own very strong feelings about political advocacy (when he doesn't agree with it) and he is likely to remove the edits. I'd suggest talking to him before he does revert the changes.

Third: Welcome to the site. Most of your edits have been really worthwhile. I'm happy to see you around. Just keep in mind that as a community we work on a fine line of civility and anarchy. Keeping things civil and open communication is important.                               Puppy's talk page01:15 17 Sep
