Welcome to the wondrous world of Uncyclopedia!

Hello, Ghostkaiba297, 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... Yes. You seem to have a sense of humor, but to be sure that it corresponds to the kind of humor that is accepted on this site, I suggest checking out the following links:

  • Beginner's Guide - A massive guide about how to be the best you can be at Uncyclopedia. I've honestly never read the whole thing in one sitting myself, but it is very useful if you're looking for help on a specific issue.
  • How to be funny and not just stupid - Our flagship link. This will tell you how to not get booed off the metaphorical stage that is Uncyclopedia. I STRONGLY suggest reading the entire thing through, perhaps more than once.
  • Our Vanity Policies - This page details why we don't care about your friends, your school, your gay fourth period math teacher, or the homework he has you do, and in-jokes. DO NOT violate these rules.
  • Uncyclopedia:Best of - For a bit of inspiration. These are our featured articles. This is the kind of stuff we like to read around here.

Now that that's out of the way, just continue reading and you'll notice some more links. These ones are about help in general:

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but I do recommend it, it can be quite enjoyable, and it's a good chance to let others take notice of your writing. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Ghostkaiba297/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 you want to write and don't know where to begin, consider contributing to Uncyclopedia's current colonization of the week, a group writing project to improve a single popular article. Anyone is welcome to contribute, so come help out! 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 talkpage, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talkpage. Additionally, the Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian, and remember: Have fun with it. We're all here to have a good time and a good laugh. Please sign your name on talkpages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (button_sig.png) above the edit box. Again, welcome!

edit Images

I'm glad you asked, it's really quite simple. If you want to upload an image, simply go to the "upload image" button at the left of the screen, and follow the instructions there. Or you can use images already on the site. Now, to put one in an article, you use [[Image:'''Imagename.jpg'''|thumb|200px|right|Caption.]]

Replacing the "Imagename.jpg" with whatever the name appears as on the image page, and changing the 200px to however many pixels looks good on the page (you can preview the page a few times to try out different sizes, though 200 usually looks pretty good). Then make the "right" either a right or left, depending on which side of the page you want the image on, and fill in whatever you like for the caption, or you can simply not add a caption. You can also let out any of the other parameters for different effects ("thumb" makes your image a thumbnail, while omitting it simply puts the image in without one). Hope that helps, feel free to ask for more help if you need it. Cheers! -RAHB 21:03, 24 April 2009 (UTC)

edit Hello

I read along the trails that you've had trouble keeping a good article afloat on the Uncy sea. Well, think of the admin who sunk it as a wayward dragon who just went out one day to destroy everything in his path. Then kill the dragon. Problem solved! But seriously, don't get discouraged but both fight to get back your page and be happy that uncy at least has some standards (although they change from minute to minute and admin to admin). When you found Socky you found a friend for life, with him on your side the world is your oyster (I don't believe I've ever used either of those expressions ever before). So there. And good to meet you! Aleister 11:30 17-3-'11
