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:Grandpafreddie/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!

We also have an impressive amount of rules that you should read, it'll take a couple of days at least. Then, you can reward yourself with our Welcome Party for Noobs!

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!  --‎ Snowflake mini Mattsnow 22:07, June 22, 2012 (UTC)

edit HowTo:Found a language

Good work with the keyboard, Grandpa! Keep going! I know the title is about founding (better: "creating"?) a language, but I'm waiting for a few sections on what to do with the new language (especially given that no one else on Earth understands it). Do you see any way to work in a few photos, or even diagrams? Also: No colons at the end of section names, and it could be just as funny without all the f***ing. (I know that's not your fault, but you sort of own it now.) Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 22:34 10-Feb-13

edit One-day ban

Your observation in the Change Summary that the article "reads too much like Wikipedia" is noted. However, there are many different types of humor, and an article that reads like Wikipedia (that is, a subtle satire, which after all is our stated goal) is often funnier than a page of "BS", which is what you advocated. Me, I can tell that the page is comedy. In fact, it is much better than your alternative, a dumb list of guesses, or a rant concluding with, "Are you sure you aren't gay?"

In any case, blanking text that doesn't meet your standards, except in the case of obvious vandalism, is not a solution. If you really believe that an article should not be here, take it to Votes for deletion. Spıke Ѧ 19:09 14-Jun-14
