Welcome ImNotASunbeam.

edit Welcome!

Hello ImNotASunbeam, and welcome to Uncyclopedia!

So what's this message all about? Well, I know it looks like this was automatically generated, and well, OK... you caught me. I'm lazy, so I paste it in. But... if you have been sent this it does mean that I have noticed your contributions, and think that you're going to do some good stuff here. So who am I? Oh, just someone putting his nose in where it is probably not wanted...

Anyway, if you have not already, I SERIOUSLY recommend that you read the link below:

Probably the second most important link for a newcomer is:

  • How to be funny and not just stupid - Basically it's a guide to writing humours articles which has been edited and improved over time by the users of this site. It's not an insult, and it's well worth a look.

If you want to find out how we decide which articles to feature on the front page, check out the VFH page. Basically, we vote for them. Anyone can vote. Especially you! You might find VFH a useful page to look over as it gives an idea of the kind of standard which you need to reach if you want to get an article featured.

If you need help, feel free to ask me on my talk page (if this message has appeared in the last few minutes, I'm propablly still on-line). A list of administrators can be found here. If you think you are going to be around a while, and would like extra help on a more personal level, you just might be able to convince someone at the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program to take you under their wing. Browse our list of available mentors, and leave them a message on their talk page.

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.

Again, welcome!  -- MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 15:02, Oct 5

edit Help?

I noticed you put the help template on your Showers page. What do you need help with? I can field most of the easier questions, and quite a few intermediate ones. Anything too tricky and I'll point out of the window and laugh at a passing dog to distract your attention before running away, leaving you with details of someone else who can help! --UU - natter UU Manhole 13:13, Oct 9

edit Showers

No worries, but the ICU tag on your Showers article expired. We usually give those seven days. I moved it to your userspace at User:ImNotASunbeam/Showers, where you can work on it all you like until you think it's good to go. If you're happy with it, go ahead and move it to mainspace again, with the "move" button at the top of the screen. Any other questions, just ask me on my talk page. Cheers! -RAHB 06:50, 13 October 2008 (UTC)

edit RE: User:ImNotASunbeam/Showers

You asked for a bit of help, I would say its coming along well. I would suggest getting a review so you can get your work looked at detail. Hope this helps:)--Sycamore (Talk) 09:51, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

edit audio

Have you done other audios apart from UnTunes:Polly? --Docile hippopotamus 00:32, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

No, I only got hold of a microphone the other day, that's the first one I've done. Why? ImNotASunbeam 08:42, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I like your Polly audio and wondered if you did more audios. --Docile hippopotamus 09:28, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! Well I uploaded a new one today if you wanted to listen to that too - UnTunes:Bearded Lady. ImNotASunbeam 19:00, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
The new one is good. Considered doing another Nirvana audio? --Docile hippopotamus 02:34, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, seeing as I can pretty much only play Nirvana on the guitar. Not sure which song though :/ ImNotASunbeam 07:20, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
Message me when you have done another audio. --Docile hippopotamus 09:19, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Right, I think it's fixed. Sorry about that. S'mores now please?--Sir Sunbeam no u F@H KUN 06:38, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Kudos! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:32, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

edit New request- Being nice here.

I have just released a new album called Burmese Democracy. One of the songs I made is a parody of "We Built This City" by Starship. Would you kindly record the song for me please, sir? It would be a good thing if we gentlemen do fair shares of each other. So, will it be a yes or a no? Tood Loyons tried doing it, and it doesn't work for him. GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Giratina CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 04:55, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Hey I can give it a try, but it may take up to a week or so 'cause I've got to listen to the song and learn the chords and stuff, so if you're willing to wait a bit that'll be fine :) --Sir Sunbeam no u F@H KUN 06:38, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
To start you off, here's the video: GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Giratina CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 00:27, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

edit Table thingies

Looks like you've learnt the First Rule of Programming, which states that there is no point in writing new code if you can nick it off someone else - that's precisely how I got the table, because my own html skills are only just sufficient to change text colour. One way to get one is simply to steal mine. Just remove my articles and add yours and then, if you wish, change the field titles; or have a look on some other people's pages and see what you can find - the illicit trade in stuff purloined from other people's userpages on Uncyc is as endemic as that in ancient Egyptian artifacts circa 1910.

Oh, and no need to worry about the kvetch here - it's only there to try to prevent people from leaving messages seemingly at random all over the page where I'm unlikely to ever find them. You managed to get yours in the right place at the bottom of the page and even signed properly, so all well and good. :-)

Articles 1
Articles 2
Articles 3
Articles 4

Here's the code for it. To change the field titles, replace '''Articles 1''' (or whichever) with '''My Mainspace Pages''' or whatever you want to call it. List your articles by replacing the your article here in * [[your article here]] with whatever your article is called, like a normal link. If you want to remove a section entirely, delete it up to the |- following the last article listed in the previous section and remember to leave or add a |} at the end, or it'll play havoc with your page. You can play about with the colours too if you wish, just by changing the values after # - for example, #800000 would give you a rather charming faeces brown shade. Font colour can be changed by simply replacing the name - ie; <FONT COLOR="white"> changed to <FONT COLOR="blue">.

Hope that helps - if not, message me here again. If I'm not around, there are various people on IRC who can help. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 07:37, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

edit Ta!

SP-Orian57 I, Orian57, extend my grattitude for (of?) your vote on WotM!

No but seriously, guys. Thanks, it means something to me, more than it should probably.

what's up?    Orian57    Talk   Union pink 12:14 1 July 2009

edit Regarding the song you're currently recording.

When you finish recording the song that I requested for you to do, can you upload it and stick it in this page please? Thanks. GiratinaOriginForme |Si Plebius Dato' (Sir) Joe ang Giratina CUN|IC Kill 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg | 03:35, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

edit So anyway

You expressed some slight interest in the Spinster idea. I'll try and remember to get back to you when I'm back from being expired. It really doesn't need to be a large group, even 3-4 people will make it work since it mostly creates guidelines. I'm sure that once the clients have been invented the actual writing of the user page will suggest itself. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 07:30, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

edit Pee Review

I rarely - basically never - do Pee Reviews because I don't like telling people their articles are shit. However, since it's you, the article isn't shit and you asked so nicely I will in this case. I've also made a few small adjustments to the prose and grammar which you can change back if they don't appeal. I'd highly recommend you do what I said in the review re. an extra image, as I think that'd be a simple yet highly-effective improvement. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 09:24, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Short articles are generally better off with one image, any more tends to muck up the page layout somewhat. Yours is just long enough to benefit from a second though - it looks a lot better, as many people are put off by a big block of text. Good luck with VFH and glad to have been of service. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 13:16, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

edit Un Question

Hi.... Sunbeam? Seems stupid to shorten your nick to Sunbeam when you so clearly state that you aren't one... INAS? IM NAS? NAS is a famous rapper, so that wouldn't be a terrible Acronym. Regardless, and please, please, please don't think I'm trying to attack you here (not my intention, I'm trying to stir up a little discussion on this matter.) could you read User:The Woodburninator/RulesVsFunny? I just ask because it seems that, from your vote on the Abe Vigoda news article (and it is not my intention that you change it either), you would disagree with my essay there (And remember, that thing is just an essay, it's nothing more. In NO WAY is it the policy of this site. It's just my personal feelings.). I just want to hear your take on that essay, as I like to get feedback from people who seem to disagree with me. Have a good one. Woody On Fire! Wood burningTalking Woody Stalking Woody 14:21, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Like I said, I'm not trying to get you to change your vote. Honestly, I don't care how you vote on stuff. You do bring up many valid points about my essay though. The thing that I can't stress enough, is that I LOVE encyclopedic articles. I personally think we need more of them. And I fear that without people telling us to be more encyclopedic, my essay could be taken too far. And we could sink into a deep funk. I do like the feedback though. I've gotten a bunch from people who agree with me, but I like getting it from people who have [perfectly valid] reasons to vote differently/ against my thoughts. I am thinking, after reading your reply, that I should stress in the essay that encyclopedic articles are always preferred, and that crazy,off-the-wall articles should be a 2nd option.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback. And I always like to hear that one of my articles has fans. Woody On Fire! Wood burningTalking Woody Stalking Woody 17:05, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

edit A blast of wind is heard, as the good spaceship Serenity approaches your userpage ...

Thank you for supporting the Firefly article! <sarcasm style="obvious">Although, if I may, my plan was really to have it fail VFH after 11 days, have it quasi-featured, start a "Feature Firefly" campaign, and eventually rewrite and have featured the article on Serenity (which is kind of in a mess at the moment).</sarcasm> But thanks anyway!
