edit Pre-Rendered Welcome!


The Balloon welcomes you!

Hello, JamesM123, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thanks 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...Not that far, goddammit! ...Yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for nooblets:
If you read anything at all, make it the above two links, particularly the second one. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia, or need more help with something, try these:
If you feel like asking someone for help, feel free to ask me on my talk page, in the help forums, or on the Uncyclopedia IRC channel. With the forums and the IRC, keep in mind that the first response of the community is almost always general silliness. We are after all, a silly wiki, run by numerous silly, silly people. When you edit discussion pages, though, make sure you sign your name, using four tildes (~~~~) or the "sign" button (Button sig), above the edit box. This'll automatically produce your name and the date, and lets everyone know who the hell you are. Signing will also help you avoid the {{tilde}} template.
When you write articles, make sure you start with enough on the page so that it's not deletion-quality. If you must create a stub that you plan to expand on in the near future, use a {{WIP}} or {{Construction}} tag to mark it as a work-in-progress. However, if you leave a tagged WIP unedited for a full week, it'll wind up huffed. If the idea of impending deletion doesn't appeal to you, you should like I do, and start pages in userspace, first. This means making a page like User:JamesM123/Article about stuff. In userspace just about anything goes(save for the obvious no-nos, like shock pics or other stupidity), and you can build and rework your page(s) at your leisure. Once it's done, just move into mainspace, maybe getting a pee review at some point to get constructive feedback on your article.
For new users seeking help, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply put {{adoptme}} on your Userpage to join--but you might want to go and actively ask someone from here, or you may not be noticed.
Lastly, and most importantly, have fun with it! As a comedy wiki, that's kinda what Uncyc is for. Enjoy yourself, and remember to never take anything anyone here says too seriously. We have serious moments, but generally we stay pretty laid back. Also, I'm not a bot. Just 'cause you saw a similar message on a bunch of other users' pages doesn't mean I didn't have to copy and paste this one onto yours with my own meatsack of a finger. Anyways, welcome to the machine! - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 07:12, Aug 31

edit Spike Milligna

Why did you try and rename Spike Milligan? Milligan is how you spell his surname... ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 09:37, December 17, 2013 (UTC)

Its an old Goon Show gag, he was known as Spike Milligna, the well known typing error after a BBC worker mistyped his name on a Goon Show script. It caught on bigtime. The preceding unsigned comment was added by JamesM123 (talk • contribs)

Please do not persist with this. Uncyclopedia is for your original comedy writing, not to catalog jokes someone else told somewhere. The average reader will not look for "Spike Milligna" in this or any other encyclopedia, because the point is not to type a punch line to see if anyone told such a joke here. Especially, digressions at the very start of an article, whether they be pseudonyms, templates, or runs of bickering initial quotations, distract the reader at the point where we are trying to get him to jump into an article. Please be original. Spıke Ѧ 11:19 17-Dec-13
