edit Welcome!

Hello, Jnorthup, 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:Jnorthup/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 want to write and don't know where to begin, consider contributing to Uncyclopedia's current colonization of the week, a group writing project to improve a single popular article. Anyone is welcome to contribute, so come help out!

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! --Sycamore (Talk) 15:36, 29 May 2009 (UTC)

edit Hangers

Ooh, don't be beatin' on the newbies with yo' Change Summary! Seriously, thank you for your vigilance and your insistence on correct spelling! Spıke Ѧ 12:19 8-Mar-13

Further to the above, I'm designating you as autopatrolled, which you will not notice. It means the reports will no longer flag every single edit you make for review for vandalism. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 14:34 8-Mar-13

PS--Though we will thus no longer be suspicious of your edits, we don't need for 12 in a row to show up on the reports. If you would please click on Preview, Uncyclopedia will show you how your changes will look. You can then continue with your edit and press Save to install all the changes at once when you are done. Thanks! Spıke Ѧ 17:00 8-Mar-13

Hi Spike, thanks for your notes. Guess it's my turn to be on the receiving end of the wire hanger :) I thought if I was posting under my own Jnorthup/ space then preview vs save would be irrelevant, ooops, however obviously it is much more relevant that I had thought before. Cheers --Jnorthup (talk) 16:24, March 9, 2013 (UTC)

It's the difference between content and process. You are free to do anything in your own userspace except cyberbullying, preparing ads for your Amway business, etc. But if someone on vandal patrol asks for the last 50 changes to the wiki, he does not want to see your work in userspace as 12 of them!

OK, got it, makes sense now... cheers --Jnorthup (talk) 17:02, March 9, 2013 (UTC)
