Certainly at most its customers, and they are no Twitter or Facebook.

::::::::If that's the case a) it's not a re-write, it was more of an extensive edit. Nothing was "replaced". b) if he doesn't like it, revert it there, though it would be an intriguing development to suggest that no pages here can be extensively edited. And if it is reverted back to the last version (as spike himself left it, ironically), bear in mind that aside from the content, the article wasn't even formatted correctly, which was the reason I started editing it in the first place.

:::::::::::I won't put your whole catalogue up, that would take a month, but some of them are way too funny not to share with all the citizens. Features for sure. Ernie Hemingway had a thing for drink (just sayin') and for writing while standing alone or with friends at his typewriter in the morning. [[user:Aleister|Aleister]] 12:45 9-4-14
  +
:::::Edits of an entire article for the express purpose of importing material from elsewhere are replacement and not merely "sharing." An author might want his due 24-hour notice that his work was about to be replaced in favor of work by a different editor from a different website. It does not depend on quality or honors. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:54 9-Apr-14</small>
  +
::::::Ah, so it's a fork-wikia thing. "For the express purpose of importing material" doesn't cut much ice with me, firstly because editing the page had no other "purpose" here or there, than to improve it. It reflects neither well or badly on the fork, because it makes no relationship to it, it's simply the editing of the same piece of text on two sites. Secondly, as I said before, the "importing" part doesn't really work, because I added very little to what is there. It was more an attempt to keep what was funny; the article remains 99% the previous author's work. Finally, last time I checked I was an editor on BOTH sites and a) that editing there doesn't preclude me (or ally, or anton) from editing here, and b) just like any other user here, I think my edits ''should'' be judged on quality or honours, not merely where I spend my time. I repeat, Spike, if you don't like it, it's very simply, revert it. Otherwise, have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up.

::::::::Woah! You seem to have taken it differently but Spike's first message seemed like a reminder for future cases when I read it! Not some attack to try and crack down on you re-writing articles. No one has brought up an argument and yet you seem to be trying to shove hate into this discussion. Let's not start a hate war. You're both great writers. {{User:ScottPat/sig3}} 13:51, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
  +
:What I think SPIKE meant, but did not phrase particularly clearly, is that articles should not be replaced with rewrites without listing the original on VFD and proposing it be replaced. This process allows the author of the existing article to have a say and helps prevent arguments over whose page is better. As with all things this rule should be applied with common sense and should not be used to prevent people replacing poor articles with quality ones. If you aren't sure ask, if the person you ask isn't sure use VFD. This has nothing to do with the fork or the provenance of articles and everything to do with trying to ensure that where someone has contributed an article it is given a fair hearing before being replaced. I have contributed several of my articles to the fork and it's excellent to see some coming the other way. I would welcome further sharing between both sites, with consent of the editors involved, obviously. I have unblocked Leverage, his article is now in mainspace. It is splendid. End of discussion. --{{User:ChiefjusticeDS/sig}} 17:44, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

== UnNews ==

Leverage, I hope Spike's ban hasn't discouraged you from sticking around. You're a legendary writer and if you could stay and write some more, it would be one of the greatest things that happened to this Uncyclopedia in the past few months. Best regards, your '''#1''' fan, {{User:Mimo&amp;maxus/sig8}} 18:35, April 10, 2014 (UTC)
 
Nice work on UnNews. You are the reason we still even try.
 
 
Allow me to introduce myself. Leverage, this is self. Self, Leverage. How do you do? I am the dumbass who fell for the trick when they said "Hey, who wants to be the UnNews editor?" Your stuff is going to be legendary in the annals of n00b greatness, unless it is later discovered that you are a sockpuppet of [[User:PuppyOnTheRadio]] or something (but he's American, and as they say, the civilized man can feign barbarism, but not the other way around). So thanks for your contributions.
 
 
May I direct you to the little placard on my editor door [[Forum:UnNews statement of principles|here]], just for reference. I have no problems at all making sure all of our standards are kept, but I thought you might enjoy playing "Reduce the GlobalTourniquet standards edits" with your own articles by remembering to adhere to them all by yourself. If you manage to, you would be the very first. And again, welcome to our silly little newspaper that I personally make sure everyone takes way too seriously. The most important thing to remember is "funny". But you got that one down pat. --{{User:GlobalTourniquet/sig}} 14:57, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== Hello noob, read this please ==
 
 
Would you be interested in writing in Uncyclopedia's first ever writing competition just for noobs? If so [[Forum:Uncyclopedia's first ever NOWC|read this and submit your name!]] (yeah you can right UnNews for it to, if you wish) {{User:Frosty/sig3}} 11:25, October 4, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== NOWC ==
 
 
Sorry about this, but I'm afraid you can't submit anything until after the 8th. So basically I'm going to remove when you just added because we haven't really started yet. {{User:Frosty/sig3}} 22:40, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== "well happy" ==
 
 
I too was baffled by this and had a notion to edit it to ", well, happy". Remember the reader. If too many are baffled instead of entertained, something's wrong. Cheers. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:12 7-Oct-12</small>
 
 
==Jimmy Savile==
 
Liked the story, I just increased the size of the pic and corrected the spelling of Savile's name. As a Brit contributor, I am well aware of the story here so good that you decided to write a news guide on this particular ex-personality! --{{User:Romartus/sig}} 18:27, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I spelt his name wrong! FML --[[User:Leverage|Leverage]] ([[User talk:Leverage#top|talk]]) 18:48, October 8, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== Sources ==
 
 
While the standards should be followed (dates are in the format "Month 99, 9999", titles are clean English (not a copy of the url), author and pub are optional), generally it's up to the author what he wants to do with the source comedically. It is most effectively used to link the reader to the real story, but I (for instance) almost always tell an additional bonus joke in the title. The author is free-form and does not need to be included. I usually put the real story author's name or "Staff" if there isn't one, but you can put "Elbert Schnozz" every time if you think it's funny to.
 
 
Oh by the way, if you are not including an author, it is required by the template that you still put the parameter in, ("author=" with a blank space after the =). Otherwise the template puts that ugly placeholder in. --{{User:GlobalTourniquet/sig}} 15:54, October 11, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== Signature ==
 
 
I have fixed your signature because one of the links was broken and you aren't a sysop. It is critical when you steal signature code from me you make it applicable to yourself. :D {{User:Frosty/sig3}} 06:46, October 12, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
== Formatting ==
 
Please be careful with the formatting when editing votes. Several times I have had to post-edit you, as I may have to again on this last one, because you typed your comments after the }<nowiki />}, which puts it totally outside the box. PS--The one comment you made that isn't there, I moved to the talk page of the article (the new UnNews) that it was really about--it wasn't about the vote being conducted on the page where you typed it. Check the Change History. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>11:41 15-Oct-12</small>
 
 
:OK I get that now. Another question - is this the normal place to reply to your message? Or do I go to your talk?--{{User:Leverage/sig}} 12:03, October 15, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
Good question. It's an individual thing; my preference is to keep question and answer on the same page. After a while, I will Unwatch you, however, so to ask me something else you would have to come to me. Another pro-tip, not based on anything you did: It is very bad ton to delete past conversations; if a controversy breaks out, it can seem as though people are trying to falsify the memory of what was said. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>12:28 15-Oct-12</small>

::Given the fact we're all volunteers, I think we should support one another. There's no use denigrating anybody, it's not like we're paid to perform lol.

:::::Thanks for adding to [[HowTo:Become an Assassin]], it's very good! In fact, it is totally hilarious and I almost pissed myself. It somehow blends well too. I consider it was a colab. I added the 2 "killing sprees" at the end though, I am endeared to them as it took me hours and hours getting it right since I was very poor with English back then (I'm a native French speaker.)

== [[Hairy ball theorem]] on VFH ==
 
 
I guess your vote means you didn't get past the Intro. The rest of the article ventures far beyond the testicle joke. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:25 4-Nov-12</small>
 
:: No Spike, but you're welcome to think that. I even read more than the intro of the original wiki article, when I'd already read it back in my uni days. i just read the other votes and I see you re-wrote this article. I get that you have tried to leaven the ball stuff with less prurient humour, but the main drive of Kamek's article remains the central pun, right? And nut jokes are made all the way through until Real World Applications, it's not as though it is jettisoned ASAP. --{{User:Leverage/sig}} 21:16, November 4, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I appreciate the explanation. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>01:22 5-Nov-12</small>
 
 
== [[Guyana]] ==
 
I like your addition of the cricketeers. Are these guys actual Guyanans? {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>13:51 10-Nov-12</small>
 
: Glad you like it! Cricketeers is maybe a funnier word to use in the article than cricketers actually. And yes, real Guyanans. --{{User:Leverage/sig}} 15:17, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
I don't know beyond three ''musketeers.'' {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>18:22 10-Nov-12</small>
 
 
This article's theme used to be: "I don't know anything about Guyana but assume it is all narcotics and prostitutes." I assumed that the last sentence of the article, linking Murda to narcotics and prostitutes, was based on that theme rather than anything in reality. So this morning I deleted it, ending the article with the pun that was the best reason to have brought Murda up in the first place. If your interest is Guyana rather than cricket, you might know something that lets you confirm or object to this change. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>15:59 11-Nov-12</small>
 
:I don't know much more about Guyana, but I think it's a little snappier like that. --{{User:Leverage/sig}} 12:37, November 12, 2012 (UTC)

== [[HowTo:Be an American in Europe]] on VFH ==
 
 
Whether or not VFH is a ''de facto'' Pee Review, I decided the following Pee Review didn't have to be made to the entire world and have moved it here from the VFH nomination.
 
 
*As VFH has become Pee Review, here is mine, <s>and even with the courtesy of not voting '''Against'''</s>. I hope being called "fat, stupid, and ignorant" eight words into this article doesn't bias me, but author is preparing to flog the trite old stereotype of the Ugly American. Okay, Section 1, what has he got: A lame pun on "passport" and making sport of the form to ''enter''--not ''leave''--the United States. 'Zis the first time author realized that travel is expensive? that people in other countries speak different languages? that you don't achieve typographical effects by just prepending spaces? This article breaks no ground, especially when it turns to getting sex abroad (answer: phone-sex). Stock themes, mostly cut-downs, and little cleverness. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>13:48 15-Nov-12</small>
 
 
PS--Have changed my mind. I would not vote to delete it, but in view of the above, I will vote to keep it off the main page. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>18:04 15-Nov-12</small>
 
 
<br><br>
 
Well I put it in vfh a) cos I liked it, and b) cos the article I did put in the pee review has not received any feedback. As for your criticisms:
 
* I have removed the first line, although more than anything else it was a link to the existing uncyc page on [[america]] (where jokes about food abound) and the [[American (species)]] ploughs a similar field. Maybe they ought to be changed too if this is played out?
 
* I also killed the passport line, which I thought was innocent enough, although maybe not funny. It's a [[Spike Milligan]] thing.
 
* I think the stuff on the form makes sense - you think a foreign country's immigration control is horrid until you watch someone go through your own.
 
* The stuff about it being expensive was simply to make it seem like a real howto, a normal consideration, and set up the jerk off joke. I wasn't satirising the cost of travel as if that was breaking new ground.
 
* I don't recognise the reference to 'people speaking other languages' - the joke is on English speakers affecting airs once they have started to learn one.
 
* With the typo effects, are you referring to the "pre" section? I never used one before I came here, I copied the format from another article, spaces included. If you know how to format it better, go for it.
 
 
I think what we consider funny is pretty different. I have made changes to some of the specific comments you made, but I still fine your tone agressive, and it just bummed me out. EDIT: I now see you have voted against the article. That to me makes more sense than making comments like that. To me, on Vfh, if you praise someone it will give them a boost, if you propose changes it can make the article better, if you vote against someone you can prevent something you don't like from being featured... but if you just tell someone something isn't funny, I don't see what you get out of it, and I don't see a likely positive effect it will have on a writer.
 
--{{User:Leverage/sig}} 18:10, November 15, 2012 (UTC)
 
 
:You smoothed out the worst of it and I have rescinded my vote against. I still don't think it's pathbreaking but I don't mind it being on the main page. Now, I was not saying that Uncyclopedia should have no calumny against Yanks, nor that it was time to ferret out every slap at Yanks that you may have seen and subject them to some sort of orthodoxy. We routinely allow many different takes on the same thing (Bush or Obama, for example) and do not require any consistency between them. However, neither is the fact that you saw someone do something somewhere an argument for doing the same thing; and <code>&lt;pre></code> is appropriate only for stuff like computer code, and not any time you want to indent stuff.
 
:By the way, I am not saying that any of these stereotypes of Americans is false or can't potentially be funny.
 
:I am sorry to have bummed you out. But, to get back to our previous discussion, that is another reason why VFH ought not be confused for, or used as, Pee Review. I have no problem with you writing a page that is even less funny than this one, even if it explicitly set out to bash Americans--as Aleister spends so much time bashing capitalism in ways I don't find funny. Except when the question is whether this article is one of Uncyclopedia's best and should go straight to the main page, that is, be our window to the world. I found the original's initial slap against Americans something that would be seriously off-putting if it were an American reader's first contact with Uncyclopedia. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>18:25 15-Nov-12</small>

== Wanna help me with my new project? ==
 
 
I'm doing [[User:Kamek98/World War III]] and wanted to collaborate with you on it. Also, sorry I couldn't erase my second vote for that article, I got banned for three days because I nominated another crap article, so sorry. I was going to erase my vote against.--[[User:Kamek98|General of All Branches of the Military and the Head of the State Police Eric]] ([[User talk:Kamek98|talk]]) 20:46, November 21, 2012 (UTC)
 
:Eric, welcome back. Now, I have not read your draft, but it is safe to guess that it will be of the Wacky War genre, and I could go out on a limb and guess that it might be as unfunny as the one that got you banned. For starters, you are a kid surely protected by state law from even being bullied, which is to say that an article on war is an article on something you know nothing about. It would be better if you wrote an article about something you knew very well (except, like, your school or your town, because none of the rest of us do). If you must write World War III, please go back to [[UN:HTBFANJS]] and reread Section 8, under '''Stagnant Articles,''' subject, creating a new war. It is not enough to create your own goofy history of the future, to suppose that Chuck Norris or Eminem are tinhorn dictators, or that Grues overwhelm the world. You should have a comedy strategy--some '''reason''' we will read it and laugh--and best of all before you start writing. Finally, if you try to create the page in mainspace right now, you will see that it has been tried twice already in 2012 and promptly deleted by Admins, who have prohibited Anons (not you) from even starting such a project. Anyway, good luck, and I will be talking to you again when someone nominates it on Votes For Deletion. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>21:03 21-Nov-12</small>

I agree with your revert on this. The repeat addition of "Some say" as a softener suggests that the editor's criterion is the orthodoxy of one side or the other, and not humor. We should be free to make the most outrageous statements we like, in the tone of an authoritative Reference Source. By the way, I wrote to {{U|TheSaiyanKirby}} that it was presumptuous to make his first edit to this article, adding the paragraph that confronts the serious hot button of whether gayness is voluntary or not. Aleister reverted him, then thought twice about it. This article needs an owner. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>22:57 17-Dec-12</small>

When it gets cleaned upped and edited into a final edition, would you consider putting Runnerway Bride on this site too? Or are you a one-site-Johnny? When it's ready and if it were here I'd feature it immediately without even going through feature vote (as I would lots of my pages), but would nom and vote for it. The main reason I'm asking is that this site gets 50,000 views a day, and that page is so good it's the only one I've asked to be possibly transfered here for the reading public (for onlookers, it's one of the best pages I've read on uncyclopedia). There has been discussion here about pages on both sites, which I always do unless it's a collab (Check out Spike's and my, mainly Spikes, [[Great Library of Alexandria]]), and I see no harm in it at all. In fact I see no harm in having two sites as long as both are maintained. Doubling our pleasure and search engine results! Thanks. [[user:Aleister|'''Aleister''']] 13:58 13-2-'13

edit Not a typo

Corpse wasn't a typo. It was a pun. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 24.27.49.143 (talk • contribs)

Anon, please point the rest of us to the page you're talking about. Spıke ¬ 17:22 5-Jan-14
PS--Anon now reverts you at UnNews:Obama fulfills campaign promise, becomes invisible with in-line comments to future authors. Evidently a reference to Obama's notorious mention of the "marine corpse" [sic]. Spıke ¬ 18:43 5-Jan-14

edit UnNews:Snapchat founders reveal exit strategy‎

I too needed a Source for that news; thanks! Spıke ¬ 13:14 7-Jan-14

No worries. We must be outside of the golden age group. "We basically have a stranglehold on all the personal information of every 14-24-year-old out there.” Leverage (talk) 16:08, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

Certainly at most its customers, and they are no Twitter or Facebook. A separate problem is that the article is not original humor so much as the truth told jauntily: Certainly the Suits at Snapchat et al are working on how to "monetize" their database of personal information. With that concern I do reveal my age. Spıke ¬ 16:40 7-Jan-14

edit Ernest Hemingway

Could I please transport your rewrite of this from the uncyco here? And nominate it on VFH? And then Top Ten of 2014? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:24, April 8, 2014 (UTC)

I am happy to do it. I was even toying with bringing Breaking Bad Wind, but I think I uploaded a few things for that, which makes it harder work. Leverage (talk) 18:50, April 8, 2014 (UTC)
All play and no work makes Jack a dull boy. I'll upload things for you here if you upload a few pics for me there (wheeling and dealing). Aleister 19:17 8-4-14
Would it be possible to do the same with text? I could email you my articles, and you could paste them up? Leverage (talk) 11:42, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
New pages are welcome. Do not replace existing pages without doing the old authors the courtesy of posting on VFD. Spıke ¬ 12:04 9-Apr-14
Who replaced anything? Leverage (talk) 12:24, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
I think Spike refers to the Ernest Hemingway re-write. Although I disagree, re-writes can be done without VFD permission. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:39, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
If that's the case a) it's not a re-write, it was more of an extensive edit. Nothing was "replaced". b) if he doesn't like it, revert it there, though it would be an intriguing development to suggest that no pages here can be extensively edited. And if it is reverted back to the last version (as spike himself left it, ironically), bear in mind that aside from the content, the article wasn't even formatted correctly, which was the reason I started editing it in the first place. Leverage (talk) 12:50, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
I won't put your whole catalogue up, that would take a month, but some of them are way too funny not to share with all the citizens. Features for sure. Ernie Hemingway had a thing for drink (just sayin') and for writing while standing alone or with friends at his typewriter in the morning. Aleister 12:45 9-4-14
Edits of an entire article for the express purpose of importing material from elsewhere are replacement and not merely "sharing." An author might want his due 24-hour notice that his work was about to be replaced in favor of work by a different editor from a different website. It does not depend on quality or honors. Spıke ¬ 12:54 9-Apr-14
Ah, so it's a fork-wikia thing. "For the express purpose of importing material" doesn't cut much ice with me, firstly because editing the page had no other "purpose" here or there, than to improve it. It reflects neither well or badly on the fork, because it makes no relationship to it, it's simply the editing of the same piece of text on two sites. Secondly, as I said before, the "importing" part doesn't really work, because I added very little to what is there. It was more an attempt to keep what was funny; the article remains 99% the previous author's work. Finally, last time I checked I was an editor on BOTH sites and a) that editing there doesn't preclude me (or ally, or anton) from editing here, and b) just like any other user here, I think my edits should be judged on quality or honours, not merely where I spend my time. I repeat, Spike, if you don't like it, it's very simply, revert it. Otherwise, have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up. Leverage (talk) 13:08, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
Woah! You seem to have taken it differently but Spike's first message seemed like a reminder for future cases when I read it! Not some attack to try and crack down on you re-writing articles. No one has brought up an argument and yet you seem to be trying to shove hate into this discussion. Let's not start a hate war. You're both great writers. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:51, April 9, 2014 (UTC)
What I think SPIKE meant, but did not phrase particularly clearly, is that articles should not be replaced with rewrites without listing the original on VFD and proposing it be replaced. This process allows the author of the existing article to have a say and helps prevent arguments over whose page is better. As with all things this rule should be applied with common sense and should not be used to prevent people replacing poor articles with quality ones. If you aren't sure ask, if the person you ask isn't sure use VFD. This has nothing to do with the fork or the provenance of articles and everything to do with trying to ensure that where someone has contributed an article it is given a fair hearing before being replaced. I have contributed several of my articles to the fork and it's excellent to see some coming the other way. I would welcome further sharing between both sites, with consent of the editors involved, obviously. I have unblocked Leverage, his article is now in mainspace. It is splendid. End of discussion. --ChiefjusticePSX 17:44, April 9, 2014 (UTC)

Leverage, I hope Spike's ban hasn't discouraged you from sticking around. You're a legendary writer and if you could stay and write some more, it would be one of the greatest things that happened to this Uncyclopedia in the past few months.
