No, I'm aware, it just looks odd. --Tophat headless 15:44, October 27, 2011 (UTC)
The forty page moves looked more odd. And then there were Haydrahlienne's several hundred deletions... Okay, so I spam the logs a bit. *shifty eyes* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 11:59, 28 October 2011

I'm glad you're happy, but in the future, please don't put such large and horribly bright templates on my talkpage. It burns, see. It burns... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:29, 29 October 2011

edit You...

...seem to like my picture, don't you? It does not hurt me, seeing my picture everywhere, but, cheese, THEY'REALLWATCHINGMEANDWHATIFTHEYDON'TLIKEMYFACEANDYOUKNOWAAAAH! I was too lazy to copy the title. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 14:44 30 October 2011

It's a very fitting image of a cat, man. Because it's time we used cats. Last year we had at Jimbo Wales, this year it's cat time. After all, where would Uncyclopedia be without its cats? If they don't like it, they can eat my fist. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 14:56, 30 October 2011
Oh, sorry, I was so excited about the year of the cat. And, as a little little sitenotice, it's Cat the Colourful, not Cat Colourful, as you have spelled the picture. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 15:28 3 November 2011
Cats are worth excitation. But that's just an abbreviation. Okay, so maybe I should worry more about abbreviating the other part, but... I'unno how. >.< It's nothing official-like. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:32, 3 November 2011
As abbreviation is official-like. Heh. Heheheh. Bohoo OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 15:35 3 November 2011
Would you like me to move the files? *shifty eyes* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:37, 3 November 2011
I'll try... But where's the move-button? Can't find it. Who ate it? OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 15:40 3 November 2011
Okay, now done it. I put those other pictures with names that are not my names into QVFD (please don't kill me please, if the idea was stupid you can always restore them, I know you're an admin.), put the new names to your template and NOW fixed the template I copied from the template-page, so it wont look ugly and, well, red. The only side-effect is that those pictures are now uploaded by me, but you can always change that and make my whole proces again. It could have been still much easier if we'd have the move-button somewhere around. But now I've changed the name nicer. Your welcome. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 16:11 3 November 2011
The move button is only there for files for admins. That was why I asked if you wanted me to do it. *shifty eyes* But anyway, so long as nothing's broke, no matter. Works for me this way as well as another, but now you know for next time. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:29, 4 November 2011
Aah, *kitty eyes*. I read you wrong. I thought that you asked me to move the files. *shifty eyes* But now everything's broken, so it's all f... No, nothings broken. Everythings fine. Maybe I should eat something. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 18:06 5 November 2011
My head is broken, but other than that, yeah... fine, fine. Perhaps eating would fix my head, too... *wanders off* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:56, 5 November 2011

Could you please stop raining down on my parade every time you feel like it? Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 15:50, 30 October 2011

If that's raining on your parade, mon, how were I and everyone else supposed to take it when you kept reverting us in earnest? Really, I was hoping we were past this - it was supposed to be a joke. You made a 'vandal' sock and welcome it, so what am I to do but kill it? It's a vandal sock! And such. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:33, 30 October 2011
The bottom line is that seeing my spoof account on the user creation log and welcoming it put a smile on my face and seeing it having been deleted on my watchlist did the opposite. If you just meant it as a joke, then I apologise for making a big deal out of it. I can be pretty fragile sometimes. I'll be quiet now.

Hey, I said I was sorry, okay? You don't need to keep bringing that up. You accidentally start one fire and this is what you get... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:34, 30 October 2011
21. Yea, and from the skies did descendeth ye heavenly fyres, which did consumme ye profligate wench who didst standeth in her fields and work ye grain with ye scythe as never before did righteous female.

 ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Oct 30 '11 18:04 (UTC)
Manor? Are you referring to the YMCA they put in awhile back? It did have its uses since it meant there was a nearby hydrant, but that seems a mite odd HOLY CRAP A SQUIRREL!
Also, I find it amusing that even my windows machine doesn't have any of those fonts. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 19:01, 30 October 2011
I find it amusing that mine has them all, and it's a "factory" install of XP Home. Oh, well.  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Oct 30 '11 21:11 (UTC)
That's actually probably why - home versions seem to care more for weird 'media' stuff. Enterprise versions, on the other hand, tend to wind up with more odd techy stuff that at times almost seems useful. Except it's still windows, so not really. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:14, 30 October 2011

Yeah happy halloween to everyone! OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 15:38 3 November 2011
Halloween is fun. I get to dress up as myself and people aren't horrified by it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:41, 3 November 2011
Yup. Same here. Am I just dreaming or is this conversation splitted into two different topics right now? I'll post something here, you post something there. I'll answer there while you answer here. Let's just wait for the first edit war. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 15:43 3 November 2011
They do that, on occasion. But that would only have worked had I the time to stay, which I didn't... alas, for we have evaded that edit war. The horror, and such. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:30, 4 November 2011

edit WotM

Thumbs up guy You Voted for Me for Writer of the Month!

Good job!

Thank you very, very much. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:37, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Templates... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:20, 2 November 2011
Oh, sorry. I was just going down the line of users who voted for me and pasting the template on their talk pages. Do you want me to not put templates on your page because I thought that your only complaint was that the Spongebob template was yellow. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:11, November 2, 2011 (UTC)
My main complaint is just that they're really huge. Although the bright colours don't help. But the size is just... big, and without any apparent reason for it. Filling up half my browser window and going off the side is big, right? But yeah, if they're to be so large And brightly coloured, please. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:52, 3 November 2011
It doesn't come out that big on my browser window. In fact, it barely takes up any room. Maybe it's because I use a Mac. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:14, November 3, 2011 (UTC)

A couple questions, first. Have you read our vanity policies? And who is this Stefanos Tsiboukas? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:57, 4 November 2011

Yes I have and I created that page and was going to move it to my profile today and its me so please mate, as I am new?--CODPROMASTER 00:07, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

I've put it here. Sorry, I'm a little not awake right now; you can have pretty much whatever in your userspace, even if it doesn't fit in the main at present. >.< 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:10, 5 November 2011

edit ADHD

I really need someone who is Staff so I chose you. I am a patient with ADHD and I find the article on it insulting and it is also illegal. Please could you do the right thing and remove it? If you don't want to, please contact all staff and forward this to them. Thanks JAF1999 15:30, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Where she could remove it? And also, everything here is almost illegal, and I have a brother that has ADHD, so please do something to it yourself. Thankyou. OMG!!! It`s Cat the Colourful, Jesus Christ!!! 18:09 5 November 2011
lmao, how is it illegal? What law does it break? Also, hi. I'm stalking your talk page. <3 --HM (T) 21:10, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Hello, HELPME, Cat, weird person... anyway, weird person, the folks are right; it ain't illegal (what is normally considered 'libel' or 'slander' or whatnot is fine due to the satire/parody nature of the site), just crappy. Also, I'm not staff. I had a staph infection once, though. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:55, 5 November 2011
Whacking people with a staff is illegal. --Evildemon PLEB SIR Lollipop (TALK) - updated on 7 November 2011, at 02:30

edit Fuck your bot.

It deleted File:Sand witch.jpg. Restore it, or I'll kill your father's uncle's brother's pharmacist's lab partner. Twice removed. --Tophat headless 00:07, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

Actually, it looks like this is your own fault - the file isn't used. At all. The only pages that even link to it are a list of unused files and this page because you linked it here. I've restored it, but please use it in some fashion (such that the software agrees that it is used) or it will only be deleted again; the process is pretty automated and such. Also, I encourage you to kill that guy regardless; if he's the one I'm thinking of, he has owed me money for some time and, well, he managed to avoid the hit I called on him and I'm not inclined to pay for another try. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:21, 6 November 2011
I know it was unused, but it was linked on VFS. Anyway, thanks for restoring it, I'll try to use it, somehow. Now Off to wipe the blood of your sort-of-family-member off my hands! Toodles! --Tophat headless 00:40, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
Looks like you've figured it out. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:09, 6 November 2011
Yup. Thanks again. --Tophat headless 01:11, November 6, 2011 (UTC) where do we go? --ShabiDOO 02:35, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
We haven't even been here yet! But if it's what you want, where do you want to go? --Tophat headless 02:37, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
It's just...Lyrithya doesn't like people doodling on her talk page...and I'm afraid if we make her displeased she will ban us for two decades. By then my creative juices will be gone and I won't be much apt to write here anymore. So maybe it's better to hop to a nOObs page or something. What do you think? --ShabiDOO 03:11, November 7, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, how about BLU Scoutgineer? --Tophat headless 03:26, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

edit Article

I'm a little new here, and since you welcomed me to Uncyclopedia, I read the guide. I appearently tested what I have learned with an article on HowTo:Be A Santa Rapist. Because you're proffesional, I would like you to help me master the path to ultimite success, by checking my article and leaving constructive critism. If you have some other information that I may have missed, please guide me to it. If you don't want to help, that's fine, but please put on my talk page: I don't want to help. Thus, I'll know. The thing is, I want to nominate an article on VFH, but I know without a few tips and improvement, I may never have my article featured. That's why, with your guidance and along with the Uncyclopedia guide, I will eventually nominate an article on VFH. I'm not sure when, but with your tips, it may be quicker. Thanks for reading this. --PopGoesTheWeasel 09:58, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

I wouldn't say I'm a professional at anything - even the stuff I get paid to do I find ways to monumentally screw up - but I'll give the article a look when I'm less distracted. That said, you'll need a review anyway before you self-nom (that's the rules), so you really might as well request a review regardless. I'll fill the thing out myself, if you'd like, at least if you do so before I get back to this. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:01, 7 November 2011

Ah Thanks I did'nt say I would self-nominate my article, as, like I told you, I'm a newbie and not confident enough with my writing skills but thanks for the response and tips. --ThisGuyHasNoLife 13:42, November 11, 2011 (UTC)

Ah, okay. A lot of noobs do that and... well, yeah. Sorry for the presumption. And I will give the article a proper lonkers at some point, really. >.< I'm just... lazy. And sidetracked. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:41, 11 November 2011

edit Thanks

... for the thoughts. I'll be around from time to time, if only to vote. The site depends on people who actually put in the hard work like yourself rather than just spunk out words, which is basically what I did for 3 years. --Sog1970 23:48, November 7, 2011 (UTC)

But words are such lovely things... and I'm glad of that. Yours is a name I'd like to continue seeing around here, even if your main projects may be elsewhere. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:22, 9 November 2011

edit Hey! How are you?

Good? You'd better be! I was wondering what are the different "types" of UnNews tags I can use on the lead articles template, I know only of "special" so far. Snowflake mini Mattsnow 04:29, November 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • breaking - for especially timely or time-critical stories
  • special
  • original - for stories with {{Original}} instead of real sources
  • exclusive - for "exclusive interviews," especially when they are exclusive because we're interviewing ourselves
  • urgent
  • editorial - for stories tagged as UnNews Editorials
  • column - for stories tagged as UnNews Columns
  • feature - for articles that are featured on the Uncyclopedia main page
The list's also in the commented out section at the top of the lead articles template. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:26, 9 November 2011
Errr... I knew of course... Hum... I was just testing to see if you knew... Hu-Hum. Great parody templates, btw! Does your cat accept canned tuna donations? Snowflake mini Mattsnow 01:16, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
Yes. Send them to the address I will forward shortly. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:19, 9 November 2011
Shipment sent. Make room in your garage! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 18:46, November 9, 2011 (UTC)
I doubt that'll be necessary; chances are it won't last long enough to make much difference. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 18:51, 9 November 2011

edit You did a review!

I miss that about you. I might even do one myself... nahhh. --Black Flamingo 17:44, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

edit Self-deopping

Wouldn't make the statement I want to make - which is that I mean it. But joke ban all you want, I'm pretty sure in that forum recently I was saying something along those lines. Mind you, I'd esteem it a favour if the joke bans were kept to a sensible length! I'll see you around, I can't stay away from this place too long, I have too many things I want to write, and I like too may people on here. Keep doing what you do, and don't let the hamsters grind you down! --UU - natter UU Manhole 19:49, Nov 12

It might, might not. But what is sensible? Are statements sensible? Do you like chicken? Why can you not just... not use the adminny stuff? Is it the same reason I can't seem to get around to watering my plants? But writing... hmm. That takes so long to do. I hope you're right about this helping... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 20:26, 12 November 2011
Now the adminny stuff isn't there, there's not the temptation to use it. So it will help. I don't see the word "block" next to the word "Lyrithya" or "ChiefjusticeDS" - that will free up several of the valuable seconds I have whenever I'm here for starters. So I can, uh, waste them on talk pages instead? Naw - I will write something, and hopefully soon, but I haven't used the op powers for any serious purpose for ages, so why have them? And I do like chicken, but I prefer lamb. And pork with crackling. Apart from your piggy, obviously - he should totally be opped, and not eaten. Hope that clears things up. --UU - natter UU Manhole 21:52, Nov 13
But what about the squirrel over there? Is that not temptation enough? Blargle. I suppose lamb is probably much better than squirrel, too... things are never clear, though, not ever. When they appear to be that is when you know things are going horribly wrong. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:03, 13 November 2011

Thanks For Your Purchase!
The NAARAHYNWOMDTCRDP appreciates your patronage because it prevents us from having to get real jobs and we can continue to provide
you with compelling yet useless publications which exploit your fear of embarrassment and nuclear holocausts. Here's an oddly designed abomination of a template for your talk page as a special gift which acknowledges your stupidity for everyone on Uncyclopedia to see!

Thanks for the vote Lyrithya!--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  19:01, November 14, 2011 (UTC)

There's really no need to thank me, especially with such large templates on my talkpage. Please. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 13:18, 15 November 2011
Sorry but it's a tradition - and with a lot of users it's considered poor manners to not issue a thank you or template. I've always tried to go above and beyond by making it an extension of the article with extra jokes. It would probably help to make a note at the top of your talk page that you don't wish to receive a VFH thank you or template. I always look for such things, especially after not doing so on one occasion and using the word "rape" on UU's freshly archived talk page when he specifically stated that he found it inappropriate. I shall add you to the "do not disturb" list with Zombiebaron.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  16:49, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

I tried to email you, but Wikia doesn't seem to be happy at the moment... It said "Action throttled," whatever that means. o_O -- Tinypony Sir "TheSlyPony" Invariably certifiable. 11:27 November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Sounds like that may have been their solution to the broken special pages thing - disable them entirely? Did you (try to) email multiple people regarding something, or was it just one or less than five? Does it work now? 'Action throttled' is what it normally says when one tries to do too much of the same thing - it's a way of preventing some types of spam, normally, but there's no telling how broken something may be. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 13:22, 15 November 2011

edit VFH is also not a disinformation page

"Why should an article that the author admits was quickly half-assed and not worth polishing up be featured?"
That's not a vote, that's personally attacking the credibility of the author. Your language also suggests that we're not equal offenders.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  16:31, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Mon, I'm really not in the mood to argue with you over this. You have a history of making drama over VFH nominations, and while I don't know how much of that may or may not also apply to monika as well, the thing applies to both of you - VFH is not a discussion page. Just don't do that. Folks are welcome to their opinions, and they invariably disagree on some things, and if someone is voting against because of X, then that is generally their prerogative, even if you happen to disagree. If you'd like to try to convince them otherwise then you are welcome to take that up with them politely on their talkpages, but taking things as attacks and responding in kind, even if they are, only makes matters worse - if a vote does seem to be an attack, please take it up with an admin, and they can strike the vote if it is deemed as such or as otherwise improper without the thing turning into a lovely mess. What monika said there, however, appears to simply be how she saw it based on what took place in the PLS, and she is welcome to link her initial reasoning regarding the article. Her opinion and reasons do not mean other people will agree, but they are her opinion and reasons. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:51, 15 November 2011
Sorry to disagree but we don't have to argue about this. It was not stated as opinion by Monika, it was stated as fact. That is clear and undeniable.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  16:59, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
That is also opinion, as is this statement, and probably most of whatever else anyone may say here or wherever. May I interest you in a biscuit? It's not real, of course, and it's made of opinions, but it's still probably quite tasty. Although that's just speculation. Is speculation opinion, too? This bears investigating... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:04, 15 November 2011
As I will tell Monika personally, the words "in my opinion" make a huge difference when making any statement. I'm a stickler for word usage and biscuits with an entree that enhances their flavor.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  17:18, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
Mon, I know you probably don't want my advice regarding this, but that's not a good idea. I read the talkpage where you two had been arguing about the thing in enormous blocks of text before, and RAHB was right, you were basically a giant dick to her about it from the start. Best thing to do would just be to drop the matter and leave it and her be, regardless of how you may feel; ultimately none of this matters. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:22, 15 November 2011
Well, one of the cardinal rules that I learned at KFJC is the he/she who complains essentially volunteers - therefore I will volunteer to judge during the next PLS and will not offer an entry. I will basically provide the kind of judgery that I would want as a writer and put forth what I believe is appropriate behavior. If you carefully read the dialog between RAHB and I, it's also (in my opinion) clear that my motivations were not that of a writer who thinks his dookie doesn't stink. I think he misunderstood my motivation as well and I don't necessarily blame him but we hashed it out. Have you seen my dialog over Tsar Bomba with the original author? It's probably longer than the article itself. I took great pains to not insult him and provide him with very clear advice about article creation - not to mention extensive explanation for why certain additional edits were not advisable. Someone who writes as many reviews as you do could have offered advice that was less generic and more specific too. What is it about PLS that emboldens some judges to be so snarky? I did think the awful noob selections justified some acid laced swipes but I see a lot of people suddenly putting on a crown or tiara when they get to be a judge.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  18:23, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
That's lovely, but I really don't care, which is often the case with such giant blocks of text; they are neither fun nor often relevant. Just please stop taking things so personally, will you? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:26, 15 November 2011
Yes, your lack of caring was very noticeable over "Wild Onion".--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  21:37, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

edit Just a little question

How many voted does an article need in VFH to actually get featured and get highlighted on the main page? One guy said 10 but I noticed a few articles with more than 10 votes and they're still not featured yet. Thanks for reading this. --Coke 08:09, November 16, 2011 (UTC)

It can vary, the usual benchmark is around a score of 12, though articles have been featured in the past with 11 votes. Featuring also depends on the number of votes for other articles on VFH, if there is an article with 17 votes for and none against then that will usually be featured before an article with 12 votes. All that said occasionally we are gripped by the need to do weird and wacky things so don't be shocked if the score for featuring varies a little. I hope that goes some way to answering your question. Also your signature is too tall; see here for details. --ChiefjusticeDS 11:28, November 16, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, what the lovely bastard in red said. And for the signature, it's the image, mainly. Too big. Although it also helps if you sign on the same line as your text; some places that's required. Others no so much, but good practice regardless. Cheeses. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:06, 16 November 2011

edit Vector @ Greek uncyclopedia

Thank you for your reply at zombiebaron's page! Regarding your 'Get a real host' comment: If I had an idea how to accomplish this migration successfully, I wouldn't be asking here. Furthermore, why don't you get a real host after all? (actually that's a genuine question) :P (btw, doesn't the fact that you have wikia staff among your admin members help exerting some pressure regarding the vector skin?). Beyond this, you suggest that given our relative technical cluelessness, it'd be prohibitive to maintain vector on our wiki? We currently use monobook as the default in our wiki. Is it a tweaked version of monobook that you use as vector/Uncyclopedia skin here? --JimmyX 21:43, November 28, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it's hard, but the smaller the wiki, the easier the transition, usually. Main reason we're still here is we just don't have the community support to go anywhere else, and we also don't actually have access to our own domain name (wikia bought it back in the day, which is a bit of a problem). You lot, on the other hand, would have less stuff to worry about moving, bandwidth and disk space would be less of an issue, and wikia doesn't have your domain name - carlb registered it on behalf of Uncyclomedia at some point, so he could point that wherever for you, either on the uncyclomedia servers themselves if you lot chose to go there, or somewhere else if you wanted to go independent. But there would be problems, of course; unreliable dumps, shadow copies, lack of user database, missing things... it's never easy.
That said, I may have been over-dramatacising a mite; things aren't that dire. I think.
Our 'vector' is just modified monobook, aye - I put copies with the relevant javascript and css in my userspace here and here, respectively, if you want to use it. Css would just replace the current el:MediaWiki:Monobook.css and the js would probably go at the end of the current el:MediaWiki:Monobook.js. Yes, there may be upkeep issues, but if some of you can get the basics of css syntax down, you shouldn't have too much trouble. Very similar css is also used by the folks at Inciclopedia, so even if we stop maintaining ours for whatever reason, if something happens to muck it up you should be able to look and see what they do to fix it. You're also welcome to ask me if at any point something to looks weird; I'll be happy to help so long as I'm around the uncyclopedias. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 00:18, 29 November 2011

Hi. I made up an article on this site called "User:Superman68" sometime ago and I'd like to see it deleted.

I've tried to delete this article several times before, but have been unsuccessful in my attempts.

However, in the future, if you have a sudden impulse to ban me, please notify me that I've done something wrong, instead. A ban is pointless if the person you're banning has no idea what it's for.

Secondly, I have 2 questions:

  • Articles from the new namespaces are showing up in the watchlist as red-links, even though they still exist. Hurrah. Also, even though the watchlist (theoretically) should have separate areas for each new namespace, only one (HowTo) is showing up. Has someone reported this to Wikia already, or should I?
  • You mentioned the new Foolitzer image looked like plastic. Is this better?  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usMon, Dec 5 '11 20:32 (UTC)
Mon, far as I can tell, you got upset over what it was for when I actually tried to explain, not for the ban itself. I can try to not ban you for randoms in the future if I remember, but that won't change the other aspects.
  • If that's still not fixed, try throwing a dead whale at sannse.
  • If by 'better', you mean looking less plasticky, well... the bottom half does. The main problem is the inexplicable whiteness on top, which is now only more apparent. Metal doesn't do that like that. I wasn't kidding about the plastic making sense, though, so there really is no need to fix it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:32, 9 December 2011
Well, metal does do like that — especially polished metal. There's this very poorly-documented concept called (wait for it) "specular reflectivity". A really, really kewl recent invention — you may have heard of it, maybe not — makes particular use of this rare attribute. I believe they call this new-fangled whirligig a "mirror".
Seriously, though, if everybody's satisfied with the "plastic" look, I'll leave off.  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSat, Dec 10 '11 1:32 (UTC)
Next time you try apologise for something, please dont devalue it so quickly by making an arse of yourself. That is not funny and it is actually somewhat annoying, especially when you cannot even seem to be bothered to get things right. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:04, 12 December 2011
Sorry. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usTue, Dec 13 '11 0:36 (UTC)

edit Lollirequest

A few of my early articles, mainly the ones that are related to sports, were actually really written by one of my cousins. He approved me adding the articles to Uncyclopedia. However, one year later, he kindly asked me to remove everything that I added that he wrote. As most of the sporked material has already been deleted long ago, the only remianing article is Atlanta Thrashers. Please delete this, and i'll notify you if I find another of his articles. Thank you. --Evildemon PLEB SIR Lollipop (TALK) - updated on 6 December 2011, at 02:25

What were you thinking, letting someone else use your accounts? Have you any idea what kind of a mess that makes of the attribution?! Are you trying to get us in legal trouble? You should be ashamed of yourself!
Just kidding; there is the slight caveat in which we don't actually care about legality here, of course. Care for some beer? And mustard? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 21:06, 12 December 2011

edit My Master

Apparently, a wiki a friend and I created is missing a few of the editing features we know and love (like colored text). Are said features not a part of basic scripts? --Gamma287 Tro-lo-no 069f11-1 MUN Icons-flag-us ☭Tetяis? 04:27, December 7, 2011 (UTC)

I noticed you were editing my appeal subpage recently. That look great, thanks! I've added one or two more since then if you'd like to take a look. MadMax 13:13, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

I was trying to pretty them up a bit, but considering what wikimedia started doing, they're now mostly in the proper form already. Which is kind of unhappying to me, because they're just so ugly like that... and now what yours would need is deprettying. I don't think I could bear to do that. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:26, 16 December 2011
Oh, and the ones you made more recently, makes me wish I knew the folks. Haven't been around in awhile that I know of, unfortunately. Although that could just be a sign I really haven't been paying attention lately. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:28, 16 December 2011

Ah, something that doesn't contain other links would be nice (and content, content could get in the way of copying and pasting if I ever get Haydrahliene working and decide to try another method)... er, other Haydrahliene.

edit Stuff

I've been thinking of stuff recently, and wondering if there is a way to return a value if a page has been featured. So that I can do a {{iffeature|{{{1}}}|featured|not featured}} type of thing. (I figure that there is something like a dpl command I can use, but dpl is not my forte.) Any ideas? Pup 12:34 29 Dec '11

You'd have to use DPL to check if it has the template on it; the template is what makes features actually be features, and that's how all the other stuff does it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:07, 30 December 2011
It's includes or something. You could probably check the code on the mainpage templates if you still need it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:10, 30 December 2011
Bizzeebeever has given me an answer on my talk page. I've got plans and ideas in line about making Category:Vital articles and UN:VITAL a little more usable. While I was sleeping, though, it seems that every article with Category:Rewrite has either been deleted or the tags have come off. Is there any reason why we wouldn't add Category:Rewrite to articles any more? Pup 06:11 30 Dec '11
Rewrite was confusing. We made them all fix tags instead. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 06:38, 30 December 2011
Should the redundant categories be deleted then? Pup 06:40 30 Dec '11
Probably. Or be marked as historical or something. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:19, 2 January 2012

edit As though nobody cares about MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext?

MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext is only "This page has been locked to prevent editing." and I am asking you because you huffed it on March 13, 2011, probably meaning nobody cares about it. Why not tell whether the page is semi-protected or fully protected? Why not encourage users to create an account and use it for only useful contributions so they can edit semi-protected pages, submit an edit request the way it will most likely be responded to, or try their best to become an administrator here so they can edit protected pages? Why not be humorous? Please read: MediaWiki talk:Protectedpagetext The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)

I'm sorry; notwithstanding what the other fellow said, I don't even know what you're asking. Also, please sign your comments on talkpages with four tildes (~~~~). 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:22, 2 January 2012

edit Hey ayhtiryL

Would you mind popping over here whenever you are free to see if there is a way to fix the coding so that the background will stop flickering when you scroll down? Take your time though, it's not important and I feel as though I have been asking you for many favors lately. --Sir Oliphaunte (განხილვა)  Georgia-flag-on-soccer-ball-vector 10:43, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

No flicker when I viewed it. What browser are you experiencing it in? Pup 12:42 03 Jan '12
Safari and I believe in explorer too. Haven't tried firefox or chrome though. What are you using? --Sir Oliphaunte (განხილვა)  Georgia-flag-on-soccer-ball-vector 15:31, January 3, 2012 (UTC)
I'm using chrome and it's flickering when I view it. Also this isn't my talk page. --ChiefjusticeDS 16:31, January 3, 2012 (UTC)
It appears to be doing that because of framerate at which some browsers/browser-monitor combinations display the scrolling - for me it only occurred in IE. But without a sufficiently high framerate, the stripes have an additive effect on each other, making it appear as if the background is flickering. As such the only solutions I can think of would be to ignore it, use a better browser, set your monitor to a higher refresh-rate (maybe), or change the width of the stripes. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:37, 3 January 2012
For some reason it only flickered when I used the down arrow. Scrolling down with my mouse didn't cause any weirdness. Also, to repeat ChiefjusticeDS, this isn't my talkpage. Sir SockySexy girls Mermaid with dolphin Tired Marilyn Monroe (talk) (stalk)Magnemite Icons-flag-be GUN SotM UotM PMotM UotY PotM WotM 17:46, 3 January 2012
It's not mine, either. But the down arrow probably just scrolls differently than the other thing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:49, 3 January 2012
Down arrow key makes it stop for me. I'll just tell everyone to use safari before reading it and to use the arrow key I suppose. *wanders off*--Sir Oliphaunte (განხილვა)  Georgia-flag-on-soccer-ball-vector 03:49, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
Maybe in ten years browsers will stop sucking so much and it won't matter anymore. Than again, it probably won't matter anymore anyway for a whole slew of other reasons, but that is neither here nor there... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:51, 4 January 2012

I'm serious, man. I don't want to be there. It's just distracting and unhappy for me, and the other folks, including yourself, and I have no idea why you haven't been nominated, all deserve the recognition and praise such an award has to offer. I just want to make squiggles. No bother, no unwarranted spites, no unhappy feelings. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:50, 4 January 2012
Of course it's distracting. When I was in the running for writer last year it was like walking on eggshells when I was communicating with Mhaille or Sog, and my interest in having a tie was real. All these guys deserve it. But maybe just relax into it and let people kiss at you and the others, and then on the last day you can slazzle. But the value of something like this is it's a learning curve, you will get some new emotions and play with them, handle them, etc cte. Anyway, if I didn't revert someone else will, so it's just drama and you will be banned and then unban yourself and it's a dirty cycle. Me? I wasn't around enough this year for a nom for anything. Hell, I was gone so much that I only had 23 features (the most for the second year in a row, pat pat on back), a dismal failure. Aleister minutes later where's puppy?
Well, I don't like it, and when one first dislikes something, they dislike it good. And maybe you haven't been around enough; I really don't know. I haven't actually been around that much myself, else I'd know that, wouldn't I? Hmm? HMMM? *sob* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:05, 4 January 2012
I'm not even here now. I won't revert you again, but I bet someone else will and accuse you of drama. Nothing really wrong with drama though, it, too, is a learning curve. Wait, I just got here for a few minutes, where am I?? Lyrithya? Oh, hi. How's things? Whoops, now I'm gone again. Aleister most-features-two-years-running guy 3:09 3-1-'12
You need more features. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:12, 4 January 2012
I appear to have been mentioned in a couple of places. But Al is right - you got nominated as a recognition of how people value you here. By declining the nominations you rob people of the opportunity to show their appreciation. Which means we're going to have to find another way to show our appreciation - and that may end up being a touch more... distracting. Pup 03:37 04 Jan '12

Greetings, Lyrithya. You nominated me for POTM for November. Now, obviously it's been a while since this happened. However, I figured that, while it can be too late to ask for forgiveness, it is never too late to give thanks.

edit Fake awards and fishheads

Hello shadow uoty. Is there someway to find out who had the most featured articles from past years? I gave myself two fake awards for most features in a year on my award page, but would like to give the fake award to previous fake award winners. Can a bot find out? Probably not, but meh. And did you know that Uncle J has 79 UnNews articles and hasn't won the foolitzer yet? Go, vote, go now. And, as always, geese. Aleister 1:45 6-1-'12

None that I know of. Well, no easy way, anyhow. You could go through the lists of features for the years and check who the main contributors are, but that seems like it'd just be painful, and I'm too incompetent to script a bot to do it. Perhaps there's something else, or you could ask someone else who is a scripter, but meh. And did you know I've never read any of them, and subsequently probably wouldn't be entirely qualified to vote? A Chicken to your Goose, and a Goose to the Fir. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:51, 6 January 2012
Well, yeah. I think I did count once, when I was into seeing if I had the most features ever in a year (I did, why didn't anybody stop me from writing all those pages? I don't even know how I did it.) so I kind of have a muscle memory of who had lots of features per year. Maybe someday. If you have a quarter-minute go look at my new Fake Awards, I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. Simple but mesmerizing thingeys. And are you at Illogico anymore? I've dropped by quite often and haven't seen your name on Recent Changes. Buffalo Insects. Aleister 1:57 6-1-'12
Hmm, that reminds me... I haven't updated my own awards pages in months. Perhaps I should do that... and as for ?pedia, I've been around, though somewhat dead. Died everywhere in December, and my returns have been stuttery and gradual. Something about staggars, or something. *flaps for effect* 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:02, 6 January 2012

I never said I was back, or around. I'd say I'll have to check those out, but chances are I'll forget, so I'll do the wise thing and not say anything. This is me sitting here not saying anything. Can you tell? Good. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:07, 6 January 2012
Ah - this may be too obvious to make sense, but you could check HoS history from 01/01/2011 and compare the numbers to 01/01/2012, and see who has had the largest jump. and ditto for 2010, 2009, etc. Just a thought. Pup 02:20 06 Jan '12
Not a bad plan, though it doesn't account for folks who may not have been updating the thing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:22, 6 January 2012

HoS wasn't around pre 2006, but that means 2007 and onward should be obtainable. Pup 02:25 06 Jan '12

edit Special:Random and subpages

Hey. I've noticed that subpages do come up when clicking on Special:Random, but various namespace articles don't. Is there a way to eliminate the possibility of subpages popping up with this? (I'm assuming this is more a Wikia question, but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.) Pup 04:29 06 Jan '12

Subpages is probably a per-namespace setting, though I'd have to look it up to be sure, and the namespaces that don't show up are listed as non-content ones or some such in some list somewhere. Regardless of how exactly it's implemented, though, aye, it'd fall to Wikia to adjust any of that. Nothing on our end for it that I'm aware of, anyway, and even if there were it's the sort of thing they like to disable for users. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:52, 6 January 2012
Nevermind - I'm not too fussy about it. Unrelated, could you hack up File:Escher lego hands.png for me please? Pup 04:59 06 Jan '12
Done, although these things are easier when proper links are used instead of transclusions. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:03, 6 January 2012
Wasn't transcluded, as far as I can remember. I have a feeling it was uploaded prior to me creating the page it was going to be used on, and I never got around to finishing it. I think the answer is no, but is there a way I can stretch an image to be 100% of width, as opposed to using px measurements? (I looked at it a while ago and had no luck, but I've been gone a while and you seem to know your way around formatting pages a lot more intensely than I do now.) Pup 05:16 06 Jan '12
Image link, I mean. Without the :. but no, you can't, because the width is determined on server end and window width on the client end is variable. Could use javascript, though, but that'd probably be kind of excessive. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:20, 6 January 2012

Okay. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:53, 7 January 2012
Proles? Scary admin talk. A request or a begging. Can I have Chuck Berry, a 2011 purge victim, popped into my user drawer. We need a page on Berry, and as I recall it had promise if trimmed well. Thanks. Little Richard, well, yes, little dick if you must know 17:46 russxmas '12

edit Greetings

I have gone through my records and it appears as though I haven't voted for you for some award, supported one or more of your articles on VFH, or supported one or more of your images on VFP, in the past year or so. If this is the case, then it's likely that I am envious of the fact that you are smarter, funnier, and have nicer boobs than me. May you have a long and fruitful life, and have many children.

edit A quick thanks

Thanks for taking the time to Pee Review my article, User:Simsilikesims/Yoga. I made some changes to it based on your suggestions. Do you think its ready for mainspace yet, or did I break it? -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 10:41, January 9, 2012 (UTC)

Aye, should be fine. I made a few changes as well, and it could probably use a bit more, but I certainly don't expect it to be deleted in the state it's in. Sentence structures stuck me as a mite odd, though, strangely repetitive and lyrical, in a way, but not really problematic since the entire thing flows that way. Kind of helps tie it all together, really. Just a little odd. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 16:37, 10 January 2012

edit I'm looking out your computer screen and I see...a genius!

Thanks almost a thousand for the 900 pic on Bibowler Girl. It is very good, and very funny for some people who might see it (all dozen of them). You have genius in your genes, I reckon. Thanks again. Aleister 00:17 10-1-'12

edit I know how much you love animate gifs, so...

...I've been trying to work something out. wikipedia:Graphics Interchange Format says that it can handle a palette of up to 256 colours per frame. Currently I'm using GIMP to create animated gifs, and that creates a 256 colour palette for the entire image. This means that my animated gifs are losing colour resolution, and I'm trying to avoid it. Do you know of any software that allows creation of gifs where the palette is adjustable on a frame by frame basis? Pup 10:39 11 Jan '12

Haven't the foggiest, sorry. You might have more luck yelling at the folks making browsers that still don't support pngs, though. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 17:13, 11 January 2012

The Twilight one is sloppy. And the plant one was basically just fudged at the last minute, though, so I don't even know what shape it might be in, but since that sort of thing is just lost on me, I probably couldn't say even if I were to look at it. >.<
Grumble, I'll put the plant one back in a jiffy. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:22, 12 January 2012
Yes, sometimes it takes weeks to polish a page to a shape I'd like it in. Months sometimes. Your pages are good, the "Meat" one, meh, needs lots more work imnho. And please take a look at the SOPA forum I just put up, are either of you viewers etc. on ATS? Some good stuff on this there. Aleister 5:28 12-1-'11
Hold on, I'm unprotecting them. PotR, you should still probably wait for the guy himself to mainspace that one, but I suppose you probably could do it yourself if you really want to. I can't say if he'd appreciate or not. What's ATS? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:31, 12 January 2012
Above Top Secret. It's the "main" website/chat site for lots of things including conspiracy stuff, breaking reports of earthquakes, and lots more. Mucho fun. And I just thought, if wikipedia is going to do the blackout, aren't we kind of obligated to go along, in a more comedic way, as its bizzaro world site? Aleister 5:34 12-1-'12
Read the forum. I figured that there wasn't much that I could contribute to the discussion, so I haven't. Oh, and I'm back in my box now relating to nomming those - as the editor in control I guess it's your call as to when you feel it's ready. I would like to see TAW articles featured sooner rather than later though to encourage more users involved in TAW next time. Pup 05:37 12 Jan '12
What forum? You should link the thing if you want someone to go to it; it's only fair. And grr, argh, I'm still trying to figure out how to unprotect them. I plead incompetence and being distracted by a funny blue banner of friendship appearing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:43, 12 January 2012

edit BTW

I have always found when giving unsolicited advice or opinion that it helps to always add in somekind of personal disclaimer. Examples would be:

  • In my opinion...those images are way too big.
  • I find those images really big!
  • If I could change one thing, it would be the size of those images.
  • I think the text of your article would come across nicer if it wasn't drowned out by the size of those images
  • IMHO those are some big ass images.

Or even indirectly without needed a personal disclaimer but through non-judgemental question, suggestions or observation:

  • Do you think thats the right size for those images?
  • Maybe you should reconsider the size of those pictures.
  • My those are big images you have.

In any case...I always find unsolicited advice or opinion is recieved more openly when its done with personal disclaimers or through non-judgemental question, suggestion or obervation.

Congradulations on winning the award. I know it makes you smile. --ShabiDOO 17:53, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

That isn't just an opinion, mon, but also basic graphic design. Many viewers just don't have big honking monitors that can handle that. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 18:15, 12 January 2012
I use a very small laptop with an 11 inch screen and my smart phone with a 3 and a half inch screen and I can see the images just as I chose to format them. I chose big images for a reason. It is your opinion Lyrithya. I can't remember the last time I've used a big honking moniter. It must be nice. --ShabiDOO 18:39, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
I wasn't referring to the images, but the text, though if you intended for that text to be an effectively meaningless sprawl squirming in a pathetic attempt to get around the images, then nevermind; the images did exactly as you meant for them to do. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 18:50, 12 January 2012

And even would wake up on 4 of our sides at the same time...and even then there would be so many combinations that could be half the right side and half the wrong side or even a quarter...and so...this probably makes no sense at all...and its a silly expression to begin with. --ShabiDOO 19:09, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

We all need validation. Even if users who are otherwise imbecilic and irritating are the ones voting for us, I'm pretty sure its all mostly sincere. No one has to accept any reward as even crossed out votes still show the support one has, and the validation that comes along with it. It doesn't matter at all who wins or how many people voted or said what. We all deserve some pats on the back. least thats what Oprah taught me...that and having faith in Jesus...who validates you every day through having been murdered by blood thirsty jews and we validate him by eating his body every Sunday and spreading the word to all four corners of the earth :) --ShabiDOO 00:01, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
Users, users, users, so many users voting up or down, jumping left and right, Oprah or Regis. As for pats on the back, I gave myself a huge pat on the back for this fine fine page. Pat pat, pat pat.

Validation has its place. Do you mean that you are mentioned by name in our article on wikipedia? Nice. Our page there needs some updating. They say there are two rules of Uncy, when there are three (they miss "Dance like you've never danced before") and that section about no facts is irritating. Lots of us put tons of facts on some of our pages, so the wording in that section is incorrect. It all goes south when the meteorite shower starts and we all have to blame Zeus or some godforsaken God. Aleister 00:27 13-1-'12
That page needs updating. Pup 12:43 13 Jan '12
Dance dance dance. I know for a fact without any doubt Lyrithya that you will just adore these dancing thingies on your talk page (if you want to ban me for a few hours...I'll understand):

On the wikipedia page thing, I just looked at the article on uncy and it has a consistent record of between 450 and 520 views a day, with some days last month in the 700s. This surprises me, and makes me wonder if more people actually look at this site than I thought did. I was under my own impression that almost nobody reads us, because uncy has never received wide media publicity. Interesting numbers on wikipedia. Aleister 1:22 13-1-'12

We do have a decent readership. There's been a bit of media about us in the past, but we also have a significant web presence. We used to be one of the most viewed wikis around, along with the star trek one (memory alpha). What has dropped off more than views is userbase. A significant number of people I speak to off site have heard of us/visited us/hate us with the but ing passion of the deepest pits of hell. The main reason for that, I surmise, is our tightening of standards. ED's death was due to lack of interest, which came from stupid being valued more highly than funny. Also protecting their right to "free speech" allowing them to host idiotic hate speech. I'm a stickler for trying to keep the quality here high for that very reason. (On a side note, I started a page on Illogicopedia the other day but have since abandoned it. I didn't like the way I was writing there. Pup 02:12 13 Jan '12

edit Use of the word massacre

I thought much the same thing. The reason why I left it as is (other than fixing the spelling) is that it's an emotive word, even if it is technically inaccurate. Also given the character portrayal of the narrator, literary accuracy is not their forte, and using an emotive word in incorrect context has an inherit logic, and that adds to the humour. (I did consider changing the word to homicide, which is also technically inaccurate, but I preferred to leave it as the original editor intended. Yes, I also have multiple copy editors here.)

edit Hi

Hi. I'm me. I'm Ancient news on Uncyclopedia. I voted for Zombiebaron to be an op (yeah, I'm that ancient news). He and TFK said to talk to you if I want to come back and start contributing, perhaps by doing some scripting. I know my way around javascript (and most languages) extremely well (more importantly for a mediawiki site, I can use AJAX). If you need some sort of resume, you might know me from such hits as That QVFD script that everyone uses but nobody probably remembers me for except TFK. I also wrote This, a script that displayed the recent changes page but updated in real time, though I understand that was since broken by Wikia. Yeah, crap got deleted in record time in my day.
TL;DR: I'm the real OG. Represent. I think. -- Village IdiotKUN Free Speech 09:12, January 15, 2012 (UTC)

Glad to see you're around. I was actually looking for someone to do a little scripting to go through articles on UN:VITAL and determine if they firstly had the Category:Vital articles (or is that singular?) on them, and if not, add it. The other thing I want it to come back with is if it has been a feature previously. It should be a straightforward .js script, but my js is a bit rusty, and I'd you're a gun at this you'd probably be able to do it a lot faster. Reckon you could help? Pup 09:19 15 Jan '12
That sounds like server-side stuff, which requires the use of PHP / the MW API as I recall, which I think requires more access to uncyclopedia's server than I have? I am not sure about wikibots, I never did them although I could look in to them if that's what people want. Javascript is more like... add a tab that you can click to add that category. I could also be misunderstanding you entirely. Also, I seem to have fixed that RC.js script to display recent changes in real time (seems to be working for a few users in IRC). Just as a "look I'm back" kinda deal with nothing else to do. -- Village IdiotKUN Free Speech 09:51, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
You could probably use DPI to generate a list of pages, and then depending on the size of the list either add the categories by hand or with pywikibot. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 09:55, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Could also write it in js to basically be a webbrowser, parse the list, visit each site, look at the categories and add if necessary, but I think that script would take FOREVERRRRRR to execute if the list is of the size that it can't reasonably be done by hand. -- Village IdiotKUN Free Speech 10:06, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
Was thinking more parse the list, visit site, etc. It would be a run once, and then just maintain it by hand. Pywikibot might be a better option, but i'm afraid my knowledge of that is only slightly better than my knowledge of 8th century ballads. Pup 10:53 15 Jan '12

At a miniumum we should do a main page template covering the entire page, a reskin, with maybe a spot to click on to enter the site with a funny statement (clicki here to defeat SOPA). One of you guys, Zombiebaron, Mimo (12-year olds blackout the internet), Maniac1075 might have come up with a good template if he ever came around anymore. And the "protest" is getting heavily covered in the media. We voted to follow wikipedia's lead in some way, so that's timelining to 00:00. Viva la innernests. Aleister 12:23 17-1-'12
p.s. I like Mattlobster's idea of closing down in favor of SOPA, and Chief and others want a whiteout. Maybe a multi-coloured-out in favor of SOPA!
A rainbow-out? Pup 12:47 17 Jan '12
Instead of a black out or a white out, one of the geniuses here can come up with a multi-colored out (in favor of SOPA?! lol, Mattlobster may have something there). A reskin like this should be enough fun for choppers to come up with. Sound okay? If so, we have a plan! If not, back to the drawers. Aleister 12:56 17-1-'12
p.s. And Puppy, is there any way to use the code you used on the storm page to whirl and dissolve the page in seven or eight seconds? The head spins.
Unfortunately not. That was more potato chopping magic than coding magic, with a bit of playing with format to get it to "fit" multiple resolutions. Pup 01:11 17 Jan '12

edit Wikia approves, viva la revolutione

Sannse left a message on the blackout-whiteout forum saying Wikia is fine (implying approval) with whatever we can do to join in the protest (don't want to put words in her mouth, please check out her statement near the bottom on the page). So you can do your thing as far as you can take it! Aleister 20:17 17-1-'12

L. I think everyone is counting on you for the reskin. 5:00 is the time. Hyperbole wrote up an interesting note on the forum page, it could be used for some of the wording unless you already have it going on, sizzle. Aleister 1:20 18-1-'12

Would it be too difficult to copy the blacxkout mechanism in frikipaideia? Got the background in [1], use english text, I'll change it. I'll give you admin rights again if u can. Thx a million! --JimmyX 06:17, January 18, 2012 (UTC)

Wish I could, but it doesn't even work here and I have no idea what's wrong with it. Ghah... even the things that definitely should work ain't working for some reason. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 06:27, 18 January 2012
Worked for me (now have js off)... What's wrong? I was thinking of changing the landing(main) page and hiding/commenting out sidebar and tabs! --JimmyX 06:30, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Trying to give it a shot. It's common.js, mediawiki:..teeth.css and what else(where's the text for example?) --JimmyX 06:36, January 18, 2012 (UTC)


function grah() {
	importStylesheet('MediaWiki:Gnashing of teeth.css');
YAHOO.util.Event.onContentReady('siteNotice', grah);

...applies this stylesheet to the hidden stuff (div id=cows) in the sitenotice. So basically, follow that form and you'll wind up with a similarly broken site. Me, I need sleep. >.< 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 06:55, 18 January 2012

edit SOPA Blackout

Just for prettiness sake, can you protect SOPA and do the thingy to it that has been done with Yahoo so it covers the entire screen. I am still enamoured over how you not only did a fantastic parody of Wikipedia's blackout, you also did it better! Pup 07:25 19 Jan '12
Zombles, I appreciate the thought, but all I really did was directly copy Wikimedia's and substitute out the content and image. And break the site, though that's slightly beside the point.
And wow, that Yahoo page looks horrific. So no, I think not - removing site navigation serves only to make the site unnavigable. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 20:17, 19 January 2012
I know! I just got lost in it for over an hour until I remembered where the backspace arrow was! Now that I know how to get out of it, I second Puppy's motion. Aleister 20:22 19-1-'12
Thought I'd reverted the vandalism on SOPA, but either the thing I did didn't work or I missed it. Glad you caught the little IP, and hopefully squished his bugger for good measure. I left him a note on his talk page after I thought I'd reverted him. A fool and his money are soon parted, that's my motto and it's how I live my life, so if I catch this IP again I will take his money. Aleister 00:42 20-1-'12
L, not true not true. I worded it right. if you read Joe's forum he had lots of support, and he changed my mind with his arguments and by bringing it to the site's attention. Then, because the forum had been overrun with sections and arguments and multiple votes, I suggested to Joe that we put up another forum for a clean vote, which I then did. The 100 should reflect his historic contribution as well as everyone else's, because it was a good thing. And he should be nommed and unamiously crowned UotM next month, something he's never won! (one of those WTF? he's never won things too) Aleister 2:32 21-1-'12
Two people is not lots of support. People didn't start taking it seriously until you brought it up, and more so, when Wikipedia actually decided to do their thing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:00, 21 January 2012
Is it just me, or does the div with the text exceed te page width and make the right hand side disappear? Pup 03:45 21 Jan '12
Blame WMF. They're dumb and I never got around to fixing their formatting. I'll do it later. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:00, 21 January 2012

I count 10 people in support of a blackout, an action, or something similar on that forum. But they were so all over the place that we needed a clean forum to actually see the vote. Which is what happened. I was among those ten only after Joe opened my eyes to the seriousness of the issue, and I researched it on ATS. Wikipedia is what gave the push, and then we agreed only after long discussion. But Joe started and drove the thing, and I just did some clean up and definition, with help from Puppy and many others. Anyway, it makes no difference now, as the file sharing sites are going to be going down one by one, and how soon will they get around to us. Aleister 4:18 21-1-'12

Mon, I appreciate that you want to give everyone a certain amount of wikilove, but I'm going to be blunt, here. This Joe fellow just seems to like starting random petitions, the more big text the better. Sometimes he happens upon actual issues that later turn into something, but given the sheer amount of random crap he puts out, it would be highly improbable for that not to be the case. Unfotunately, that small percentage doesn't help matters anyway, since anything good he may happen to suggest will still just be discarded out of hand with the rest of it; in such matters it tends to take more work to sort through the nonsense than to just start over from scratch. Please don't encourage him; there are far more productive things both he and you could be doing. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:36, 21 January 2012
So you do hate him. It was just a rumor, started by your edit summary a while ago and quickly going viral around the world. Ok, if what you say is true, playing along, this time he did good. And doing good is worthy of whatever weight and value that good caused. If you are going to faint praise all the people on the 2012 worse list who made the beu-ti-ful template, then why not let my addition stay like it was and do a nice? Huh? Pretty please with ten-foot tall giant emus on top? And I had no intention of being here off and on so long, have a few things to do and play before coming back. Enjoy the northern light show later today, hopefully. Aleister 4:43 21-1-'12
Because he didn't do it. Any of it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:46, 21 January 2012
Yes he did. For one thing he talked me into learning more and changing my opinion, so whatever I did was initiated by Joe. You do hate him! Do you actually love him? Is it one of those love/hate things? Get a room! And drop whatever you're doing and read my new unnews page, the narcissism one, its so good that I spit up in my mouth just to taste how good it is. And I won't continue this argument, you obviously lohate Joe, but I will nom him for WotM next month. You can't erase that one from the page (or can you??????) Aleister 4:56 21-1-'12
I'm curious to see what happens with None of the reports I have seen so far have shown what the charges are and under what law/laws. From my understanding the smoking gun is internal emails that show that they supposedly encouraged uploading illegal materials. Megavideo, videobb, putlocker, sockshare, zideozer, and a bunch of others don't appear to have stopped or even slowed their activities. Pup 04:24 21 Jan '12
Since when do people pay heed to laws? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 04:36, 21 January 2012

That sort of thing usually happens when you have unclosed tags or the like, or do something else completely invalid with the hypertext. Don't do that. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 18:53, 22 January 2012

edit Admining and stuff

Lyrithya, when you drop by someones talk page and tell them your opinion as though its fact, arbitrarily make up policy, label whatever you want as spam and insinuate that a user is doing things that are disrespectful, it would probably be, at the very least, considerate to read their reply no matter how long winded it is. Even worse, would be replying in some off handed passive agressive dismisive way in a "anyways, whatever, I'm to cool to care, your view doesn't matter" tone. How can you treat any user like that, especially over something as innocent as trying to promote a conest? Is that the behaviour of an admin? I'm hoping to get members of the community I respect to participate in a fun competition, and you turn it into yet another piece of condescending Lyrithya knows best nonsense (of course, in my humble opinion). What gives Lyrithya? --ShabiDOO 23:16, January 24, 2012 (UTC)

I've said something on this on User talk:Shabidoo. Can we consider this drama done now? Pup 11:53 24 Jan '12

This is odd

It works still as a second level header in relationship to the creation of the target link, but it doesn't have the edit button on it. Pup 01:04 25 Jan '12

It also won't allow you to do a section edit by changing the section number in the URL Such as It can help create non section tags for content like this (if you see what I mean). This is really odd, and allows for a cute little hack if ever one is needed. Pup 01:14 25 Jan '12
Mediawiki handles its sections internally by parsing blah blah blah good gods why am I still awake? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:24, 25 January 2012

edit Just to prove a point to myself

I created another section. Sorry to be playing on your talk-page like this, but I can see advantages to this. You may be able to as well. Pup 01:16 25 Jan '12

Unfortunately it's hacky and messy and potentially problematic when the rest of the stuffy stuff updates and this is left as is or something. I don't even know. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 01:27, 25 January 2012
Hacky and messy, but I like having hacky and messy tricks up my sleeve. And go to sleep! Pup 01:45 25 Jan '12
You're hacky and messy. And I want to, believe me. >.< 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 02:45, 25 January 2012
I seem to recall playing with this a while ago and it still parsed the HTML the way it did the wiki markup. It seems to have changed, or my memory is faulty. Both are equally likely. Pup 02:51 25 Jan '12
Did it? That would be smart. I think. I really don't know what I'm talking about. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 03:06, 25 January 2012

edit VFH

Ain't gonna tell you how to do yer job, especially since everyone else including me ain't bothering to do it, but I will lend you some pointers for dealing with a shitty, low-health VFH in the form of this page of things that I do on that occasion. Most of it boils down to "feature every other day," which is a thing we really ought to do a lot more in general. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 14:14, January 26, 2012 (UTC)

And how does that help? Most things only get a score of 11 or so no matter how we leave them and there certainly aren't enough that get around 13 or so to do much good; either we wind up choosing between a bunch of things with the same score and not featuring some of them at random or we might as well feature them all, no? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 14:53, 26 January 2012
All the good ones all get featured eventually anyway, more or less, but the issue is that we can't just let VFH drop down to 10 articles with the highest score being 8 or 9. Yeah, all articles 11+ end up getting featured, but if we burn through all of them with single-day featuring then the scores drop quicker and quicker when we can't find enough nominations to take their place, especially when it takes nearly 20 days to reach a score of 11 in the first place. Articles don't grow on trees, so when VFH is slow we should play it slow. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 15:00, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
And this is slow? 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:39, 26 January 2012
Very. 10 should be the average votes per article; it's been since Skully implemented the health tracking system, and it's steadily maintained that health when I was featuring every other day. Now it's at 7.75, and that's with only 18 nominations. Slow down. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 15:47, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
Are you sure? Seeing as I just removed 6ish articles, a low total is to be expected - that happens every time someone removes some. Add to that that we aren't going to be featuring any new articles in a couple days, it seems especially prudent to indeed feature the usual new ones around now even if this is slower than usual. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 15:57, 26 January 2012
Good point. I made those posts during the influence of tons of vomit and ramen, so my bad for gettin' hasty. Still, 16 articles and 7.75 seemed pretty dire at the time. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 15:15, January 28, 2012 (UTC)
Well, all voting has been somewhat dire of late. Perhaps we're just all doomed. We could always resort to the featured article of the randomly indiscriminate time period... 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 18:51, 28 January 2012
