edit Welcome!

Why do I need to provide this welcome message? Oh, because you're a new editor/noob/newbie here and no other fool friendly person has welcomed you yet.

So Hello, Little Mermaid, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your current and future contributions, assuming, of course, you aren't a vandal or some such. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, that's the toilet. 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. And please read a few featured articles so you can see what's considered the good stuff (make sure you find the featured version). 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:Little Mermaid/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}} - on the top of it.

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. I signed up, and they haven't killed me yet!

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. I was an adopted noob, and gosh was it cool. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to apply to be adopted. Again, welcome!  WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 08:00, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

edit Mermaids

Just an idea on your contributions. As you seem to be doing a constructive rewrite of Mermaids, you might want to think about signing up for Uncyclopedia:Conservation Week. It's where people can post what they're rewriting. You certainly don't have to sign up there, but it might let people know who you are, and would help keep others from messing with your edits. Happy editing! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 17:44, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

I'll look at that. Thanks for welcoming me. Little Mermaid Little Mermaid 03:07, November 13, 2009 (UTC) I went there but I don't see any edit button. How do I do it? Little Mermaid Little Mermaid 03:12, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

That page is probably set so really new users can't sign up to avoid vandalism. You should be able to sign up in a day or two. In the meantime, keep editing! Also a couple of suggestions. When you sign a post (which you generally only do on talk pages), you can put just ~~~~ after your post. You may notice that your name is listed twice in your posts above. And if you want lines without symbols at the beginning to move to a new line, make a space in between. I hope this helps! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 03:59, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

How can I make notes at the bottom of Mermaids? Little Mermaid 03:56, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

The easiest way to explain it is probably to show you a page that uses it. You can check out Sun Bee and hit the edit button. You'll see things like
<ref>The name of the species is a mixture of Latin and Greek.
 "Helio-" is Greek and means "of or like the sun," "-anus" is Latin
 and means "hindquarters," and "burnupus" is Pig Latin and means
 "burns us up."</ref>

There's several of these which use those reference codes. To get these at the bottom of the article, look at the code near the bottom, which is

== Footnotes ==


I hope this helps! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 04:08, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

I got an edit conflict. What did I do wrong? Little Mermaid 04:15, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
You didn't do anything wrong. An edit conflict means that between when you clicked on edit to edit a page and when you hit save, someone else edited the page (in this case, me). What you can do is find the new part you just typed, copy it, then go to the page again and click edit, then paste your new message in. Also if you click edit you'll see I began this message with the colon symbol. If you use one more than the message you're responding to, it lines things up so it's easier to track a conversation.
For example:

Hi. --me

Hi. --you.
What's up? --me.
Not much. What's up with you? --you.
Nothing. --me. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 04:28, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! I'll try it. Do you need an acolyte, Father Why? Little Mermaid 05:01, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
An acolyte? Well, I suppose I could use an altar boy or girl, depending on what you had in mine. You mean like light the candles, and bring me the sacraments and my slippers? And you can sign up to be a nun or monk by going to Church of Uncyclopedia. Actually, there's not much to signing up; just declare yourself one and you are. I can declare you if you really want me to, but it's not necessary. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:16, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
I'm a little mermaid not man! :) Please make me a nun. I'll look at the Church page and see what I have to do. Little Mermaid 05:28, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
I read it cool. But I couldn't find the vow? Little Mermaid 05:49, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Well, as I'm ordaining you I suppose I can make one for you. Do you, Little Mermaid, solemnly swear or affirm to uphold the Church of Uncyclopedia by behaving in a suitably unholy manner, distorting the truth, spreading lies, and making up factoids for the sacred amusement of our readers? And do you further swear or affirm to behave in a manner appropriate to a member of the church, making fun of others in a manner that you believe they will find funny, and being respectful of those in authority unless it's funnier if you do not? And do you furthermore agree to hold sacred the Holy Potato of Sophia, and to not consume anything made of or related to potatoes, unless you do so in a respectful manner and when She's not watching? And do you further promise to bring me my slippers when I shall ask you for them? If so, say "I so swear" or "I so affirm." WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:04, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
I so swear. Little Mermaid 06:09, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Very well. By the power invested in me by the Church of Uncyclopedia and by the Hottest of Hot Potatoes Sophia, I hereby declare you to be Sister Little Mermaid, nun of the Church of Uncyclopedia. You may call yourself thusly in your signature, if you like. Well done, thou good and faithful spud. (If you don't know how to change your signature, let me know. You certainly don't have to). WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:16, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Coolness! Can you do my siggy for me? Like yours but with color? I like blue and green. And can it be Little Sister Mermaid? Little Mermaid 06:23, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
I changed my mind I like Sister Little Mermaid. Can you do it for me please? Little Mermaid 06:27, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Sure, I can do that. I'll include the symbol because that's the symbol of the church. It might take me a few minutes. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:29, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Coolness!! I'm getting off now but I'll look for it when I'm back! Little Mermaid 06:36, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
I know you know science stuff. Could you make a scientific name for mermaids? I'm adding sirens too. Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  18:50, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
I did a lot of work on Mermaids but I haven't done the ending. Do you think it needs more pictures? Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  22:54, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
More pictures would be nice. Personally, I think it works well if wherever you scroll on an article, you see part of at least one picture. I'll be pretty busy the next couple days (I've been working a proposal for some writing work), but will try to find you some pics next week if you like. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 07:18, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
Please! I don't know how to put pics on it. Please do! Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  03:42, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

edit Here's your new signature Sister-Daughter (what do fathers call their nuns anyway?)

You can see your new signature at User:Little Mermaid/sig. But it won't show up when you sign with ~~~~ until you do the following:

  1. Click on my preferences at the top of your screen
  2. In the box that says signature, copy and paste this: {{SUBST:nosubst|User:Little Mermaid/sig}}
  3. Check the custom signature box
  4. Click save.

Now when you ~~~~ and preview or save, you should see your new siggy! It should look like this:

Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  07:00, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

If for some reason this doesn't work, or if you want me to change it, let me know on my talk page or yours. I'll be watching both right now, but later you'll want to post messages for me on mine, unless a discussion started on yours. Happy editing, and Praise Sophia! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 07:00, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks Father! Sorry I've been gone so long I've been a bad little girl. Little Mermaid 17:28, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Very glad you're back! If you've been bad, would you rather I make you stand in the corner or give you a spanking? (Also did you need help doing a custom signature?) WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 17:58, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Definitely a spanking! I was editing Mermaids but I'll change it now! Little Mermaid 18:00, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
All right, bend over. SWAT! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:05, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Ouch! ;) Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  18:08, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
IT WORKS! Also see what I've done on Mermaids. Its not finished. Am I adopted now? Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  18:10, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
You've definitely made improvements; well done, thou good and faithful user. You're already adopted; I just hadn't made it formal because I wasn't sure you'd be coming back. I'll put the appropriate template on your page and mine and make it formal. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:17, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Father Daddy! Hugs! Now you can make your number 3! Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  18:34, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
I was posting you are now formally adopted at the same time you were. Check your user page and congratulations, daughter-sister! (Also I have two adoptees right now, and not three). Bless you! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:36, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
I meant you have 3 people who hugged you! Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  18:42, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Oh yeah, you're right. At least for Uncyclopedia. Fatherly hugs to my daughter-sister. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:45, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

edit Voting and Politics

As your adopter, I feel it's my responsibility to let you know how you can have your say around here. Some of this you may already know, but it's here to check out. Voting for this month is almost over, although VFH and VFP continue.

VFH You can vote for, against, or just comment on any article that's being considered for being a featured article of the day.

VFP You can do the same with an image.

NotM This is to vote on Noob of the Month.

WotM This is to vote on Writer of the Month.

RotM This is to vote on Review of the Month (does Pee Reviews--when you're finished with Mermaids, you might want to ask for a Pee Review).

UOTM This is to vote on Uncyclopedia of the Month.

UGotM This is to vote on Useless Gobshite of the Month (this is a joke award).

There are others that come up from time to time, but those are the regulars (unless I forgot something).

Theres so much to vote for! I hope you win Reviewer and Uncyclopedia but I don't know the others. Can I still vote? I voted for useless bcuz nobody's useless! lol Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  03:07, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
I'll start voting next month then I can read everything. Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  03:09, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
I voted for Reviewer because your very nice and theres nobody else! lol Whats a Pee Review? Is that something I want to know? Do I have to go to a doctor? Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  03:16, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
No, if you want an examination you can go to a priest. Or a justice. Or whoever does them. "Pee Review" is really Uncyclopedia's weird say of saying "Peer Review." It just means you ask if someone could review your article, and hopefully then someone does it. I've had articles Pee Reviewed, and have Pee Reviewed a number of them; it can be very helpful. Click on Pee Review (or the link on the left of your screen) for more info. Also while I appreciate your vote (especially because there isn't anyone else), I wouldn't recommend voting in the future unless you're more familiar with the person's work in the category they're nominated. You might want to start with looking at VFH and VFP because then you only have to consider each article or image individually. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
Ah, so you want to know about PEE review? Sit down, sit down, someone bring me my large book of PEE and my reading glasses and we shall begin the proper history and realities of PEE. Oh it has been so long since somebody has has asked me this, the rolls of parchment, bring me the rolls of parchment! --ChiefjusticeDS 18:33, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:23, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
You can start now its a new month! Just read the featured article of the day each time cuz well be voting on the best for the month. I have a couple articles to catch up on but I'll get to them. DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 04:53, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

edit You're adopted and here's your family

Congratulations little one!

Now here's your family lineage. I adopted you, so I'm your Father. Because I'm called Father as a priest of the Church of Uncyclopedia, I'm your Father father. And as you're a Sister in the church, you're both my sister and my daughter. My mother is MileySpears who adopted me, so she's your Grandma. She had been adopted by Cainad, so he's your Grandfather. Your older sister, who I also adopted, is Puffskein. Your step-grandpa (who's either my step-father or my uncle; I'm not sure which) is Syndrome. Your great-uncle is PuppyOnTheRadio. Oh and somebody else claimed to be my cousin, but I haven't seen him for a while. Congratulations on your new family! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 19:14, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Priests aren't allowed to have children, so we're going to just pretend you're Spike's child and you can visit your real father on Sundays. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 20:07, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
Priests aren't allowed to have children? Ha! Priests in ancient Israel were expected to have kids and wives (not necessarily in that order, and in most cases I mean "wives" not "a wife"). Wiccan priests can have children, and so can Protestant priests (in many Christian traditions, all Christians are considered "priests.") And Roman Catholic priests are father to everybody! Don't tell me I can't have kids or I'll say you're committing blasphemy against God! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 20:15, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
You can't have kids. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 20:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, well... you're a doody! --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 20:52, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
Hi Little Mermaid! I'm Whyner's Mommy so I'm your Grandma! Grandmotherly huggies and kissies! If you want help ask Whyner of course but also ask me! Usually if you post a note on my talk page somebody else will come by and answer for me. DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 04:27, December 1, 2009 (UTC)
I just wanted to note that this talk has been very thought provoking in my ruminations about a new cult I am forming. (The line forms to the left.) Anytrail, Little Mermaid you're really lucky to have such a good family. I love my adopted kin and I'd try to marry into yours but I'm afraid if I traced my lineage back I'd find I'm kissing-cousins with Syndrome's sister or something and we'd end up having a bunch of flipper-kids. Tip: When editing a page try to make the "Summary:" field at the bottom of the page funny too. (It doesn't even have to relate to the article!.) Cheers!  Avast Matey!!!

I have a banana that dances if you talk nicely to it. Pup
I bet you do, Puppy! DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 05:15, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
He's not the only one. My banana can hip hop, and do solo dancing, partner dancing, and ballroom dancing. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:30, December 3, 2009 (UTC)
Where you been, girl? Out to sea? WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:57, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Sorry I won't be gone so long I promise! I've just been totally busy trying to catch dancing bananas! Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  12:56, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Careful you don't catch something from the bananas! lol DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 04:22, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

edit Sockpuppeting

A checkuser confirmed that Hey People! is a sockpuppet operated by you. Anything to say? ~Jewriken.GIF 19:31, December 11, 2009 (UTC)

Little Mermaid, I've tried to find out what happened here, but have been told not to get involved. I'd suggest simply answering Mordillo's question in a very polite, respectful manner. Happy editing! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 01:21, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
I don't know what a sockpuppet is. Does that mean you think I'm Hey people? I'm not I'm just me. Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  02:50, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

edit Pee Review

I asked for Mermaids but now I don't see it on the list. Does that mean it's reviewed? How do I find it? Compassrose Sister Little Mermaid (talk)  03:10, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

If you go to Uncyclopedia:Pee_Review and click on Current at the top, you'll see it listed. Right now it hasn't been reviewed. If you click on Reviewed, you'll see articles that have been reviewed recently. Also while I have your talk page on my Watchlist, I'll probably see your questions and such quicker if you post them on my talk page, or of course you can post them on the talk page of any user you'd like to ask. I hope this helps! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 16:22, December 12, 2009 (UTC)
I was going to Pee on your Mermaids but you already got a Pee Review! It's at Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Mermaids. DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 03:55, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

We miss seeing your creativity here! I hope that little drama didn't scare you away. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:36, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

It's a baby and his name is HELPME because that's what his mother screamed when he was born. And look, he's already learning how to read!

So go say hi to your new little brother! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:33, January 30, 2010 (UTC)

edit It's been two months

Again, I really hope that little drama didn't scare you away. You did some very productive edits, I'm glad I adopted you, and I look forward to your return.

However, I do currently have you down as an adoptee. If I don't hear from you by the end of this month, I may release you. That doesn't mean I don't want you back and don't want to be your adopter--I certainly do! But I don't want to keep a slot filled when there's no one present. If for some reason you return after I release you, you can certainly ask me to adopt you again, if you like.

If you return, please leave a message on my talk page. I hope you're doing well! WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 01:31, February 20, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the month has passed and unfortunately I haven't heard from you and fear you may not return. So, regretfully, I'm taking you off as my adoptee. But again, if you return, please post a note on my talk page and I will welcome you back. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:15, March 1, 2010 (UTC)
