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:Hazbulator/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 need help, feel free to ask me on my talk page, ask at the community forum or in the chatroom, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, our Adopt-a-Noob program can 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!  ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 04:12, July 6, 2014 (UTC)


Yes, but it's not ready for the main encyclopedia, so I moved it to User:Hazbulator/Bosnia and Herzegovina, where you can continue improving it at your leisure.

  • This is an English-language wiki and too much of the humor requires knowledge of a foreign language.
  • The article relies too heavily on lists of unrelated things, as though they were funny just from being stated.
  • The single-sentence sections must be expanded into something that looks like an encyclopedia.
  • Sentences like "They have their economy ruined years ago by politicaly parties like SDA, SDP, HDZ or SNSD." are not funny but personal opinion. Also, insults are not automatically funny.
  • It chats with the reader and tells him what to do, as an encyclopedia would not.
  • It needs help with the English.

Keep working on it! Spıke Ѧ 11:39 6-Jul-14

Okaaay man! Thanks! I'll make so good that it will get its place in the main article space. Sincerely: Hazbulator (talk) 15:14, July 6, 2014 (UTC)

I think you may be getting the hang of this place.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:10, July 6, 2014 (UTC)
I've made a lot of good changes, could you spare some time and take a look now at the article and tell me what needs to be improved or it's good enough now? User:Hazbulator/Bosnia and Herzegovina
Thank you for your understanding. Hazbulator (talk) 17:19, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
No mention of Edin Džeko? I think also what happened in 28th June 1914 could be mentioned too but also, a lot of stuff which is essentially a couple of lines could be placed in the fact box or whatever it is called. As you see here with other country profiles or on Wikipedia. You will also need to find some pix to go along with the piece. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:25, July 7, 2014 (UTC)
Cool i have some ideas i'll add more as soon as possible. Hazbulator (talk) 00:11, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

However, on a satire encyclopedia such as this, your outlook should not be, "Bosnia is a funny place that I want to teach you about," but "Here is a funny/cracked presentation of Bosnia." That is, don't catalog funny stuff that exists in reality (and which Americans and Australians, for instance, are unlikely to know is even the truth!) but create original comedy writing that everyone will understand is comedy. I have created a few of our country articles, knowing nothing about the country at all except what I deliberately misread in Wikipedia. Good luck! Spıke Ѧ 00:32 8-Jul-14

I've just added the new better infobox about the country, it looks 100 times better than the old one. You like it guys? And i also made a new flag for the country.Hazbulator (talk) 02:04, July 8, 2014 (UTC)

This has come a long way since I first read it! However, regarding the flag, casting a country (or a state of the US) in Soviet or Nazi terms is officially trite unless you do a little work to relate it to reality and explain to the reader who might not know the reality why it is funny. The section on Sports remains over-dependent on lists, and it seems that there and afterward, you are trying more to inform than amuse. Remember to keep yourself out of the narrative (as in, "I guess"). Good work, keep going! Spıke Ѧ 02:17 8-Jul-14

Agreed. It is a very commendable first effort. You saw a gap in the Font of UnKnowledge - and filled it with Homebrew. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:10, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
I've got so many new ideas i'll add them all and expand the "Sports" part of the article (Also i'll mention Edin Džeko.) Hazbulator (talk) 16:27, July 8, 2014 (UTC)
Okay i added more info on sports and made some improvements on the {{infobox}}, now when i look at other countries articles and when i look back at Bosnia's i really think it is time to push it into the main article space. Sincerely: Hazbulator (talk) 01:58, July 9, 2014 (UTC)

This is now mainspaced. However, I deleted some unfunny stuff. The Infobox is there only to give the superficially impression it is from Wikipedia. You don't have to fill out every field. Fapping as a national pastime relates to nothing, and some of your fields are simply factual, which doesn't add anything — imports and exports really don't either. The list of sports clubs by ethnicity had no humor; it was there to inform and not to amuse. But I'll advertise it on the main page. Spıke Ѧ 03:53 9-Jul-14

Alright, thanks. Hazbulator (talk) 15:33, July 9, 2014 (UTC)
