edit Pre-Rendered Welcome!


The Balloon welcomes you!

Hello, Joe Kingmann, 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:Joe Kingmann/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. Browse our list of available mentors, and leave them a message on their talk page.
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! - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 04:26, Jan 24

edit Potter

Hey, how'd you like my 57-59 on Potter? Are you going to stick around for awhile when you finish this very good page? And Welcome, good to meet you. Aleister in Chains 15:52 14 4 mmx

Ok, fine, you tricked me. Been here longer than Zeus. I like your redirect on your user page. Al, few minuteslater
An IP is adding to the page, most of it crap but maybe a few savable pieces in there. When he finishes or at some point maybe you or I can go through his stuff, save a few of the literate pieces, work on a few others to make them good, and then dump the rest. (If it's your younger brother or someone you know, put them to bed without their supper) Aleister in Chains 10:38 22 4
(p.s) Some of them were better than I thought. Is this you, as an IP? just preparing the titles, etc. before working on them? Your writing is so good I'm not sure if this is your writing style in rough form or not.

edit User:Joe Kingmann/City Renaming Craze‎

Welcome back! it has been years. Now, in my opinion, no one is ever going to look this new article up. It makes the reader guess your punch line in order to read your joke! Perhaps "City naming" would be closer. Not saying you can't do what you're doing, only that you should make its structure support the notion of an "encyclopedia article." Spıke Ѧ 23:45 20-Jan-15

Well, you attached {{Construction}} and then abandoned it for over a week, so it is now in your userspace, where you can continue work on it at your leisure at the name shown at the top of this section. In my opinion, a list of city names that might have a wacky story behind them still needs a unifying concept. Spıke Ѧ 01:11 2-Feb-15
