Mermaid with dolphin
Welcome to the wondrous world of Uncyclopedia!

Hello, Marie, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... Yes. You seem to have a sense of humor, but to be sure that it corresponds to the kind of humor that is accepted on this site, I suggest checking out the following links:

  • Beginner's Guide - A massive guide about how to be the best you can be at Uncyclopedia. I've honestly never read the whole thing in one sitting myself, but it is very useful if you're looking for help on a specific issue.
  • How to be funny and not just stupid - Our flagship link. This will tell you how to not get booed off the metaphorical stage that is Uncyclopedia. I STRONGLY suggest reading the entire thing through, perhaps more than once.
  • Our Vanity Policies - This page details why we don't care about your friends, your school, your gay fourth period math teacher, or the homework he has you do, and in-jokes. DO NOT violate these rules.
  • Uncyclopedia:Best of - For a bit of inspiration. These are our featured articles. This is the kind of stuff we like to read around here.

Now that that's out of the way, just continue reading and you'll notice some more links. These ones are about help in general:

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but I do recommend it, it can be quite enjoyable, and it's a good chance to let others take notice of your writing. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Marie/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}} - onto it as well.

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! 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 talkpage, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talkpage. Additionally, the Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian, and remember: Have fun with it. We're all here to have a good time and a good laugh. Please sign your name on talkpages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (button_sig.png) above the edit box. Again, welcome!

edit Userpage

is here a guide about making a userpage The preceding unsigned comment was added by Marie (talk • contribs)

Hi Marie, you called for help, and I'm responding. Sort of. Anyway, a couple of tips first up - don't remove stuff from talk pages unless you archive them on other pages, it helps keep track of things, including those really helpful links in that there welcome message ;-)
Now, when it comes to making a cool userpage, there are no guides that I know of. The general approach to that sort of thing, as with cool sigs and indeed any kind of cool formatting, is to look around the site, find a page you like the look of, edit the page, shamelessly copy the code (don't save the page), come back to your page, paste the code in, then change all the bits with their name and their articles to your name and your articles. As you progress, you'll become more of a magpie, stealing cool ideas from other people's pages as you find them.
A lot of the stuff is in html, but this is a wiki, you can't really break it by playing around with html formatting, so change stuff and see what happens. The preview button is your friend here. The only real rule is that any tags you open like <this> have to be closed again like </this> when you're done with them. So go steal code and play with it. Oh, and this might help - it's a handy list of html colour names that can help you make your page look snazzy. Have fun, and if you have any other questions, you can ask on my talk page! --UU - natter UU Manhole 16:07, Mar 18
Oh, and while I'm here, I see you're playing around with a sig. That's cool. Be careful it's not too tall though - there are a couple of rules about how high sigs can be. Other than that though, it's all good. --UU - natter UU Manhole 16:15, Mar 18
