Most overrated bands

dude I hope you don't forget the White Stripes, Weezer, and Bruce Springstein's band. Also, I don't know if I'm supposed to edit other peoples' talk pages? I thought you could do that, but I got banned for it for two hours or something?...185.25.253.25 05:21, January 4, 2014 (UTC)

I banned you for editing another's userspace without permission, not talk page. Also, switching between a banned IP and an unbanned IP can be considered ban evasion. When you sign up for an account, you get a username. If the page says User talk:Namehere (assuming we had someone who was called Namehere) then it is a talk page. If the page says User:Namehere/Namehere's page then don't touch that page without permission of the user whose userspace it is under. So this page User talk:Maniac1075 is ok to edit, but User:Maniac1075\Top 10 Most Overated Bands of All Time‎‎ is NOT ok to edit unless you have Maniac1075's permission, or the specific permission of an admin. This note is not to be construed as permission. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 05:37, January 4, 2014 (UTC)

That page I was working on this morning, I'm not sure if I'll even release it, let alone finish it? I wanna make sure it's coming across as funny, truthful but humorous too... not just showing my rage and anger again towards shit I don't like again :P Parody works best when you do it about something you love, when you do it out of spite and hatred, they don't always work so well. Feel free to add a part yourself about the White Stripes and Bruce Springsteen if you want, I have no idea whom else to add to the last 5. --ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 05:40, January 4, 2014 (UTC)

A very good editing philosophy by Maniac1075, and a very good move by Anon to check via talk page before editing stuff in someone else's area. Spıke ¬ 13:30 4-Jan-14

B.J. Thomas

Also regarding music....Hearing something on the radio today, I decided we needed B.J. Thomas. The Intro is done, but I don't know, and there isn't on Wikipedia, enough for me to go further. Can you pop-pickers provide or invent a funny history of this performer? Spıke ¬ 00:42 5-Jan-14

I'll give it a whirl... I know the song, but don't know a damn thing about him!

That was quick, thorough, and hit the spot! I gave it a copy-edit. Period after all your "B.J"s, lessened use of the first person where possible; a city close to the border where most of the retail commerce is taken quickly south is MacAllen. Bieber might think Thomas "is shit" but probably wouldn't say so in those terms, being a child star, so please consider rewriting that. I removed your additional initial quotation, as it tends to keep the reader from getting interested when the talking voices at the start of the article start talking to one another. I would like to see another photo, of whomever it is that is chanting OO Ga Cha Ga.

I've added the article to the new work mentioned on the main page. Spıke ¬ 14:32 5-Jan-14

cool--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 15:50, January 5, 2014 (UTC)

Now, Wikipedia says the real B.J. is alive. But don't you think yours, having gotten the ultimate comeuppance by Bieber, would have killed himself? In a fitting manner "given the manner in which he lived?" Spıke ¬ 16:50 6-Jan-14

Probably. --ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 05:52, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

User:Maniac1075/Top 10 Most Overated Bands of All Time

FYI--Some of our Top 100 lists have been rewritten lately to de-emphasize numbers. This protects them from a lot of anonymous editors who want to shuffle the rankings, insert Number 5-1/2, add fluff in order to reach 100 (It's good that you focused only on the Top 10), and so on. Just a thought. Looking at your article, I think it would seem more polished if you stuck closer to the "encyclopedia article" format rather than seeming to scold the reader. Maybe rant within the list items, but don't tell me at the start how to read the article. Cheers! Spıke ¬ 12:54 7-Jan-14

That was gonna get changed anyway... I've changed it again now, but it may go through several reconstructions again. Just FIIK who to add as the last two bands? --ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 13:36, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

No problem! it's safely inside your userspace, so it's not like I'm waiting with the big {{ICU}}! I have already vented my rant against Blue Swede, which no one still knows who they are. At the risk of showing my age, The Monkees were the first famous band explicitly created by marketeers out of not-really-musicians as a manufactured music craze in order to sell stuff. "Yes" is actually my favorite but you could ridicule them for breaking each of pop music's rules and having a concert audience mostly in wheelchairs. Barry Manilow is a musician famous for writing weepy, bad songs. Other than that, there are awful songs, but any act that has survived for long enough for us to remember them must have appealed to someone. Spıke ¬ 14:57 7-Jan-14

The Monkees I could hang shit on! Damn goody-two-shoes songs and horrible actors... that will work. Manilow is a solo artist tho, or at least known as one even if he did use the same band? I'm not sure, I don't know that much detail about him. As for Yes, I know the name, but can't think of what they sing? Even checking out their greatest hits i'm still not sure... however, like I said, parody usually works best from someone who loves the subject... why don't you add an article on Yes to the list?--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 18:57, January 7, 2014 (UTC)

Don't even know any hits by Yes? Sigh! You must remember That Horrible Decade, either the 4th or 5th re-forming of the group, where they "went popular" and confined themselves to three-minute songs, 4/4 time, and chords we knew where to find on our guitars? Real Yes fans refer to that as true whoring before they returned to their roots in incoherent "progressive" rock. Apart from all that, I know we have an article on Yes (band), I read it once and it was written by a real fan and don't think I can beat it. ...Yup, just re-read it, written by a true Yes lover (according to your advice in the previous section to write about stuff you love, not hate), heavier on the inside jokes than your list wants to be, but done so well that even a pun Discography isn't a groaner. Spıke ¬ 19:09 7-Jan-14

PS--Am renaming this file with slash, not backslash. That makes the entire title the property of nonexistent user Maniac...Overrated...etc. Spıke ¬ 19:13 7-Jan-14

Haha, but I am overrated! Well, if you listen to Alister anyway! What would you say is the biggest hit song Yes recorded? I may not recognize the titles, but I'll probably recognize it when I hear it--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 06:07, January 8, 2014 (UTC)
Well, the pages pretty much completed. Needs a proof reading. But, any complaints, constructive/nonconstructive/complaints/suggestions? Apart from delete it :P--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 06:51, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

It's just depressing to answer that question. Owner of a Lonely Heart is the only hit you might recognize, it's decades old and, like the article says, it's not their real stuff but part of the decade they took off in order to actually sell records. Later albums had no hit singles, as Fly from Here won't either.

On the article: Keep working to ensure that it is not in the form of a rant from you to me but an "encyclopedia article" from an Authority to the reader. For example, instead of stating a personal opinion, state "facts" that will draw the reader to that exact opinion, and be sure that any swears do something funny, not just show a different side of you.

On the new illustration for Yes, there is no overt nudity, and all the Admins have defended the use of nudity when in the service of comedy. But the implied nudity here is irrelevant to comedy. (Is that your mom???) We are in the second week of an era in which Wikia has asserted the right to delete pix without asking first, though I have seen no suspicious actions in the logs. Not to restart an old disagreement, but you could help our position by requesting the deletion any personal caches of porn awaiting use.

Now, a separate problem: What this illustration illustrates is that you don't know anything about Yes. While I concede that no one else does either, "nobody knows" and "nobody cares" are overused and trite themes. A better one is that Roger Dean paints many Yes album covers with otherworldly scenes. Why not take something like the "Walmart on the moon" shoop and state that it is a Roger Dean album cover? Spıke ¬ 14:57 8-Jan-14

Ok, I know who they are now!
No, if that was my mom, i'd be a mother fucker!
That pic is not nudity. Nothings showing. Should it be replaced? 'cause i'm about ready to rev up the engine, take it out of the garage, park it in the main space and run from it claiming their is a bomb in the backseat... truthfully, it's my lunch. I'm just sick of Alister stealing it the little prick--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 04:07, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I'll replace it with the joke proposed above. If you move it to mainspace, include it in our "list of lists" template. Spıke ¬ 03:37 11-Jan-14

PS--What's with the double-spacing and <BR>? At most, use ---- for a horizontal line; don't invent spacing that's different from other Uncyclopedia articles! Spıke ¬ 03:42 11-Jan-14

It was to make it look neater. However, I am using 1680 by 1050px on my screen. If it looks like shit to others, feel free to remove them.

Where is the lists of lists? I didn't even know there was one. oh wait, you mean add a Category:Lists? done.--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 05:39, January 11, 2014 (UTC)

The Pussycat Dolls

Please see my comment at Votes for deletion. This might not be your type of music, but you might be the one to save this article anyway, before it gets deleted. Spıke ¬ 11:09 25-Jan-14

Batman

Your Batman movies article is epic, at least for around here. congratulations (and no kidding around this time). A masters-piece. I've nommed it on VFH, and if anything on this goddess-forsaken sweaty site deserves featuring, this one does. Aleister 3:59 3-2-14

oh, you *smooch*--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 05:04, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I voted for it, but please make it fit into the "encyclopedia" cover and look less like Stand-up or a chat with a child bouncing on your knee. Less colloquial, and it's not spelled "tho". Cheers! Spıke ¬ 15:53 3-Feb-14

This is not a comment on your talkpage

Are you sure that the vote which was not meant to be there is meant to be there? It would be interesting to know why it is so. Just asking and you are not urged to change anything. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 09:00, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I intentionally put my for vote in the against column. It has 5 votes for, so it won't effect it!--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 09:03, February 3, 2014 (UTC)
Ok! Thanks for explaining! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:53, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

And what concerns This page cannot be found, great job! I edited it this morning because I liked the beginning and felt sorry for it when the ICU was placed. Now you've managed to do a real article!

The writing is great and the only problem I see is that the text is divided by lines and tags and has no sections. I know this is against your concept, but I just think that it will be easier to read it, if there would be some logical structure. Maybe some big headers that won't be section headings at the same time? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:03, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

maybe... I was just trying to make it look like an actual error 404 page layout. They space out everything. So it gives the illusion of first glance that it actually is an error 404 page.
Like this. http://s535.photobucket.com/user/maniac1075/media/CTX116481-1_zps946566ca.gif.html

--ManiacJaSg-Maniac1075Complain Here 19:59, February 3, 2014 (UTC)

Ok, I understand your concept! Then it's certainly better without sections, but I will see if some information can be reorganized. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:09, February 4, 2014 (UTC)
