edit Welcome!

Hello, Jimlemon, 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... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

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.

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:Jimlemon/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!

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!  -- -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 03:50, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the advice, I have acted on some of it. I have actually been writing things on Uncyclopedia and UnNews for some time. Apparently no one has read them. Pandemonium can be a lonely place. {{subst:nosubst|User:jimlemon/sig}}

edit UnNews

Hi! Nice UnNews you wrote there. We have a UnNews competition going on until the 30th (Forum:First Pee Buddy Awards!), so yours would be eligible. You would be able to edit it until the 30th, then the judges will do their thing. You can add it yourself or just leave a message on my talk page if you want me to add it. Cheers!

edit UnNews:Germaine's advice to Kate

Welcome back, and thanks for the UnNews! Would you please keep working on it to make it less ranty, read more like news, and for extra credit, find an actual current story to make it relate to? Thanks. Spıke Ѧ 14:51 28-Sep-14

Oops! you had a Source. I've edited your story to put it in {{Source}}. But real news stories don't lead with the "news" that something has made the headlines; if Greer said something, a real news story states when, and to whom, and why it was news; and so does the headline. I would not pun with the people's names but play this part straight to tell your joke with maximum realism. Except that there isn't much of a joke: you have mostly taken an absurd utterance from the news and transformed it into absurd and ranty, not so much creating laughs as pointing and laughing at an already absurd person.

edit UnNews:World's most unreliable clock reset again

Welcome back, and thanks for this UnNews! I have given it the house style (format of dateline, format of category). In fact, {{Original}} is not needed, as it can be hung off several sources from actual news outlets. I picked one and included it.

Am ambivalent on whether to do it up as a graphic, as I mentioned at User talk:Romartus, as it strikes me as mostly advocacy (though advocacy with which I sympathize, and with several side trips that will be fun for anyone on either side of the issue). In particular, the start of the UnNews is not a dry summary of what supposedly just happened, as "real news" is supposed to be, but a recap from a particular point of view. This makes it seem less like a real news story. Spıke Ѧ 18:17 23-Jan-15

PS--Romartus has no such misgivings, so I have given your story the coveted 2-spot on the Front Page. I still encourage you to make it seem more like a conventional news story. (Next: A sweep-second hand?) Spıke Ѧ 20:42 23-Jan-15

edit UnNews:Kim Jong Un brings new musical Korea to Eurovision

This is your Kim UnNews. As it was incomplete in format and was mostly a funny retelling of the straight news, I asked EStop to tug it in a new direction, which he has. You still get half credit for the concept, and Saint Peter will know that and update the books accordingly. Spıke Ѧ 01:02 22-Feb-15

Foolitzer Thanks for your contribution to the February 2015 renaissance of UnNews!

edit UnNews:Greece demands war reparations

Brilliant UnNews. Love the image as well. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:50, April 8, 2015 (UTC)

edit UnNews:Rescuers respond to signals for help

This is cute! I have renamed it, as headlines need verbs. This will lead today's Front Page! Spıke Radiomicrophone12:55 13-Apr-16

Ahem. Thanks for all the comments and advice. It is not that I am indifferent to you all, I'm just not very social. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jimlemon (talk • contribs)

That is fine. PS--Please use the four-tilde method of signing your posts; what you did was put your user page in double squiggly braces, which copied it into this page! Spıke Radiomicrophone13:13 20-Apr-16

This looks very promising! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:58, April 21, 2016 (UTC)

edit UnNews:University redefines cheerleading

Thanks for the UnNews! I slapped a different headline on it, one with a verb that suggests that something just happened, i.e., News. Style notes:

  • You ended this with a vague suggestion of a theme (relevance to the US Presidential campaign) which I developed.
  • "3000 kilometers" became "2000 miles" as this story is set in the US.
  • Note that the Categories need double square brackets.
  • You don't need a piped link such as [[Women|women]] because it will match no matter what the capitalization of the first letter.
  • I don't know how you found the Apple II to edit on, but if you would copypaste your draft into an actual Uncyclopedia edit window, it would not have to be rewrapped.

Until someone does something newer, you have two Front Page graphics at once! Cheers! Spıke Radiomicrophone11:56 29-Apr-16

edit UnNews:Innovation in sentencing and punishment

Am not enthused about this one; you found an unremarkable example of perversion in the judiciary (something similar is unfolding here in New Hampshire, though the salient angle is why the perv got onto the steering committee of the Governor's campaign), then morphed it into other perversion, putting everything into hard-to-read dialect so the comedy strategy is stereotyping the South. This keeps it from looking like real news: Even when The Times encounters a true hayseed, they don't try to render his dialect in all its awfulness. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:33 11-May-16
