Fair Use of All-purpose Jesus?

It's up. It's not of Thermopalaes caliber, but I hope you approve. Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 19:30, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Another 'nother question

Is there any way that I can request to pull the Fiddy pic off of VFP? Without getting too much into it, something has been said to me that makes me feel that it perhaps shouldn't be featured on the main page. I'd feel much better about things if it just went back to being a silly pic at the bottom of an article, I think. Not to mention, Fiddy doesn't even deserve the publicity of being featured... he's already got enough fans of gibberish without our advertising. Is this possible? -- Imrealized ...hmm? 12:19, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Have removed said image. Shame I thought it was funny. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I did appreciate the show of support for it and hate to seem ingrateful but, while I agree it was funny, I kinda felt myself leaning toward some of the against comments as well. I believe Dawg said it best with whatever he said (I'm kinda too lazy to check the page history). That compacted with the tugging of my heartstrings for a moment led me to that decision. I'm just surprised to find that I had any heartstrings to begin with, because I always thought that particular organ fell under the percussion family. Thanks for your help. -- Imrealized 19:35, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Another Question

Why'd you huff the The Legend of Ron and the Cheeseburger article?

The "article" in question was against our Vanity Policies. It might also be worth reading this. Its nothing personal, we aim to delete all of these kind of articles on sight. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

A Question

Is there a welcoming comitte around here? Because I may be a n00b, but I have had a lot of experience with other wikis...could you please help me?

We have a welcoming service manned by a group of keen volunteers from within our Admin and Veterans here. What sort of thing were you thinking about? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Smells Like Something, Alright

Ah, adding things to this, are we? Without me asking? Well now I'm asking. If you wanna, I'm trying to make this one a group effort because, well, that just seems like fun to me. So go to town, if ya like. -- Imrealized 15:55, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, I get around. For me, collaborative projects seem to just feel better, and I think often you get a fuller, rounder article with greater depth. I'll see if anything else pops into my head, in this heat it could be anything though. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I haven't participated in an article orgy yet but, like I said, it seems like fun. Of course, I guess you need the right participants, lest the whole thing turn out like the preexisting article, what with its Space Ninja Warlock Pirates and all. Obviously, with your addition, you are the right participant. I'm still tied up working on the last two Cobainime pics, so the writing is just kinda hanging out, calling others who aren't me to work on it. Enjoy the heat. -- Imrealized 16:22, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

Question about NRVing

Hello prodigal dad. I'm trying to figure out if placing an NRV tag is something reserved for admins, or it is possible for all users to use - with the appropriate caution. If I can use an NRV tag, and the writer removes it without changing, what are the actions need to be taken? Thanks. -- Brigadier Sir Mordillo Icons-flag-il GUN UotY WotM FP UotM AotM MI3 AnotM VFH +S 13:12, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Excellent question. Whilst it IS possible for any contributor to add a NRV tag to an article it does, as you point out, need to be addressed with caution. Some individuals have in the past tried to use the NRV in Revert/Troll Wars, or at the very least one-upmanship with other contributors. When an Admin uses the NRV tag there is the additional stamp of authority (for better or worse) that comes through carrying a large spikey banstick.
I would say that each situation should be taken on an individual basis. If you think that using NRV is likely to lead to a difficult situation then put the article in VFD or QVFD and let the people speak. That or ask a friendly, ban-happy Admin to intervene. Hope that helps. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
It does. Many thanks. -- Brigadier Sir Mordillo Icons-flag-il GUN UotY WotM FP UotM AotM MI3 AnotM VFH +S 13:28, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Merci Beaucoup

...from the depths of the ocean, for the welcome. A quick question however; if two people are editing the same page at the same time, what exactly happens with regards to how the changes are made? If I edit something, and save the changes, but JoeBloggs has already started to edit it before I submitted my latest changes, and he saves his, what happens?

Again, The Fish says thanks, and gives you a hearty glug from the ocean.

--Teh fish 19:39, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

What happens is....you get an "Conflict Error". The thing to do is click BACK in the browser, if your addition is say an extra paragraph or a line or whatever you can select and copy it. Then click on the EDIT tab at the top of the page, and add your content back in. That way both edits get to go in. Follow? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Thanks. I gotcha. I obviously knew that already. I just wanted to test you to make sure you knew. Or something. :> --Teh fish 19:44, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, let me know if I pass. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
You were scraping the barrel for marks, but I'm a benevolent examiner Out of one question, you got one correct answer. Well done! --Teh fish 19:49, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Nick Who

Now you See here, Mr. Admin sir, It's really not fair you delete our Nick Who article, as many people actually felt it was of quality. Perhaps you should leave it, and observe the amount of people that visit it. or perhaps read it yourself, and just leave it. It's not a very big article, it does not HARM anybody..what did it ever do to you? so PLEASE un-protect it, seriously, just leave it and we shall not bother you anymore. So don't be a fecal vagina, and let us have our little article. P.S; We have delt with the gimp that wrote the (un-amusing) Nick Barker article, they actually STOLE our idea, and as you can see, became a pox on your daily-administrating duties. So please ponder about this, be a sport, and let us have our own little piece of Uncyclopedia to laugh at. Thank you for your time.

Comments or suggestion

Since you were kind enough to give me some direction in this wierd world of Uncyclopedia, I'd appreciate any thought or suggestion you might have in relation to the corner I've gotten myself painted into. Please see User:Jax-arrgj/001 and leave any thoughts you might have on User_talk:Jax-arrgj/001 --JAX-arrgh!!! Prevaricate at me 17:01, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

Do Not Remove

OK, what does the article need to convince you of its potential. Seriously, help me out. Not interested in another notch, but I really do value your input. Hugs, Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 12:24, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

Its probably more about personal tastes than anything specifically "wrong" with the article. It has some nice humour in there, is well laid out (aside from the epic block of text at the beginning), and it even mentions one of my favourite films of all time. It should press all the right buttons in me, but for some reason (Peter O'Toole/Katherine Hepburn dialogue aside) its just missing that certain something. UnBooks:See Dick has got it. I tend to view a lot of articles as having a "filler/gag ratio" within their content. Good articles need filler to space out the jokes and to make a decent article, its impossible to write an article where every line is a perfect gem, but I guess Do Not Remove (and this is only my opinion, and whats that worth?) needs a few more dropdead funny lines peppered throughout. Things I vote for have usually had two or three lines where I have really laughed out loud. Do Not Remove has one, though a good one at that. Bet you won't ask me again.... :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Thanks for the feedback. Could you do me a favor though? Take a look at the article in its form. I normally ask Some User to look over what I put together, this time he bulked the article up in content. But I would be interested in your opinion of the original version (copy editing aside, Brad liked it. Hugs, Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 22:32, 30 June 2006 (UTC)
Hmmmmmm....difficult one. I do actually prefer this [version]. As I say, its not that the additions after that aren't funny and worth having, it might just be the way they are structured within the article? Perhaps you could take some of the bulk from the top and add it as an extra section further down? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Let me get back to on this. I'm pregnant and as with most pregnant women, my hormones are craving some Barry White and some alone time with the husband. Which is how I got this way to begin with. After I get done hopping on him, I'll hop on this. Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 00:42, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Ehhh, I'll try to ignore the whole "hopping" thing for now and just say that I did exactly as suggested, just a couple minutes ago. (In all fairness to myself, though, I hadn't read the foregoing before doing it. Not that that helps...) Anyway, sorry about that. I just got carried away for some reason!  c • > • cunwapquc? 00:47, 1 July 2006 (UTC)
Well since you're both there, could you also take a look at Anal glands (the article, not mine) and make a suggestion or two? I've put it up for Pee Review. Dame PPsigPPlips.gifGUN PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 00:49, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, what was the reason for removing the article on Valentin Ivanov? Portraying him as a card player does not have any uncyclopedic merit? Cheers. 82.161.54.51 18:36, 30 June 2006 (UTC)

On Shatterstar

Thanks for saving my userpage. By the way, Shatterstar is actually the creator of this vanity page. It has been deleted by Tompkins like 10 times and I have vandalised the latest version just for fun. The article is listed on the QVFD page with two related images, so that's some trash you may wish to get rid of.

Segues

I figured something had gone wrong when I made Segues and it promptly vanished. Then, after making it again, I stumbled across the Huff'd page and discovered that you'd huffed it. It's a one-note joke, granted, so if you want to huff it again I won't object (just don't forget Segue if you do). Modusoperandi 18:35, 4 July 2006 (UTC)

Pulled the trigger on my first article

I wanted to try my hand at rewriting an article that had the rewrite tag on it, so I looked over the list and found kryptonite. Since I’ve got a pretty solid background in comic books, Christianity, and colors, I gave it a go. Can anyone with a bit of experience take a look at it for me and give me some comments, if they have any? Even if I didn’t do anything wrong per se, any tips and hints would be welcome DrObvious 03:05, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Update: I asked this in the public forum. I was still getting the ins and outs of mediawiki under my belt, and I didn't realize I was just asking in a personal page instead of public place. --DrObvious 16:01, 7 July 2006 (UTC)

Thanks a lot for the welcome

Thanks for welcoming me. Now please come and pick up the burned paper bag filled with doggy poop you left on my porch. If you don't, I'm going to send Winona Ryder to your next garage sale.Screenscribbler 00:39, 8 July 2006 (UTC)

Re: Typographical Oceans

Hope you don't mind but I "improved" the type on your LeftBehind.jpg image. If it does get featured the credit is all yours, I just couldn't resist tweaking.... :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Actually, I prefered "the rapturing". It just rolls of the tongue and it turned out to be an actual word (I thought I'd made it up). "Rupturing" next to a rump seems, well, unseemly...and I picked that typeface because it's the same one on the actual book covers. If you could make the text something similar to the original font, but un-jaggy I'd be filled with righteous appreciation. No biggie...sigh, I figured it wouldn't pass anyway. I am, however, content that it's proven to be so divisive, moo ha-ha!. Modusoperandi 15:00, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
I redid the text, it's somewhat less headache inducing. It's still not great as I'm still figuring out MSPaint. I would have ended the previous sentence with the emoticon for "smiley face" or "wink", but then I'd have to punch myself in the head. Modusoperandi 15:21, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
Looks a lot better. Didn't know you were using MSPaint though. You poor, poor individual.... :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Actually it's an ancient copy of PaintshopPro. Not a bad program, but I haven't really messed around with it yet. It's cool, but I'd rather play Halflife2, know what I mean? Modusoperandi 15:28, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

David Ortiz article

Hi, i was wondering, why you deleted the David Ortiz article. Ric36's article seemed kinda funny and you should give this user a break. I am new to here, but I also know whats funny and not just stupid. If you have anymore comments for me me, please contact me. Thekid 19:10, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Hi, the article was shot down in flames because it was a one-liner, that and the fact that we are in the middle of a Forest Fire Week where all the little stubs of articles get torched. You may have noticed that when the last version of the article returned (with an extra couple of lines) that I tagged it as Under Constructions.....which should give it a couple of days grace to grow into an article worthy of keeping. If you or Ric36 need any help just yell. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Ok thanks for your so called, Unhelp. Oh and also, can you perhaps help me edit it more and maybe we can get a humorus image? Thekid 19:28, 11 July 2006 (UTC)

Well the nomination was mine... :) But its doing very well, so I'm more than pleased. Both your edits and those from Enegma really helped, for a while I had hit a brick wall, knowing it needed something extra but not quite grasping hold of what it was.

Rap

I recently completely re-wrote the article on rap, and since apparently nobody checks Pee Review, I was wondering if you could take a look at it and see what ya think. If you could add/revise a little it would be even better. I wanna try to VFH it soon, cuz I think its pretty damn funny, so I want it to be perfect before I nom it. I just wanted some feedback from highly esteemed uncyclopedians such as yourself (hoping the flattery will work). In all honesty though, I really like your stuff - most recently Jingo - and to get some feedback from you I think would help me a lot. If you have time, please help me out. Thanks, -- Sir Cornbread The Great Icons-flag-us [SHOUT] [MUN] [GET THIS FEATURED!] 02:07, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

I like it, its funny, well laid out, a nice little article all round. IMHO its only missing a couple of dropdead funny lines to make VFH worthy. Personally, I think Ape-Shit Crazy is far more VFH material, but maybe thats just me? :) I don't think you can ever write the perfect article, but you still have to keep trying.... not sure this is the answer you were looking for, but I'm delirious from the heat. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
I also love Ape-Shit Crazy of course, since it's my article, but apparently when I VFH'd it some people thought it was too similar to Bat Fuck Insane...I might try it again later. I'm glad you like the article, and I'll try to add some more to it. Any suggestions? -- Sir Cornbread The Great Icons-flag-us [SHOUT] [MUN] [GET THIS FEATURED!] 18:52, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

How?

I've recently arrived at Uncyclopedia. I have had a hard time so far, but now getting back to Uncyclopedia... I've been trying to edit the Poo lit surprise page so I can actually enter a submission or two. I've followed the rules, but I cannot see how to actually place my submission on the page. There is no edit button, & a view source sign on top, which means it has been protected from editing. Others who are not admins have managed to place their submissions, why can't I? I'm an established editor on Wikipedia, so I think I'd know if you could edit it. I'm here on a wikibreak because Wikipedia partically sucks, but have been stressed out by this issue.

PLS HowTo Question

Hi, if you have a minute, I would appreciate it if you could quickly summarize how game pages like Zork work (I see there's a template, but don't know where it's being pulled from, for example). I have an article idea but need to understand the syntax in order to implement it. Also, I see they have their own Game:"..." area; how does this affect things? Thanks!--Shandon 21:59, 2 August 2006 (UTC)...oh. I have found the zork templates category. Trying some things out in the sandbox...I think I can use this as a base. But any suggestions or hints are most welcome. Thx--Shandon 22:05, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi again...what I really need help with is how to change background colors. I see there are 6 digit codes. Is there a list somewhere? Thx--Shandon 16:14, 3 August 2006 (UTC) OK I looked the HTML codes up on the internet (of all places! What a shocker!)--Shandon 17:20, 3 August 2006 (UTC)

Isn't it really weird that by the time I start to answer your question you've already answered it for yourself? If you have any spare time could you deal with any other questions on here for me? Thanks. :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

OK I'm offically stuck. DiZ was trying to have a look at it for me, but he doesn't seem to know what to do either.

Here's what's goin' on: I am trying to create a version of the 'zorkheader' template because I want background color change and moves/score (maybe). I do not want it to appear in the zork templates category. In my version currently on user:Shandon/sandbox either the title Zork won't go away, or if I delete what I think I should in the code, on user:Shandon/Sandbox1 (my test page for using the template) when I refer to the template and then use the 'zorkcmd' to enter some text (confused yet?), the command text appears at the bottom of the screen, outside of the header template. I want it inside the template. The words on Sandbox1 are meaningless, just trash to have something to use. Any ideas? Thanks!--Shandon 21:02, 3 August 2006 (UTC) Also if possible I would like to keep a running score. The user would click on links to answer a question with one of three possible answers, and the score would be added to or subtracted from depending on that answer. Eg.

Would you rather:

  • Kill a mockingbird (-1 to score, though the user can't see that)
  • Ask for whom the bell tolls (+1)
  • Have a night to remember? (no change)

Can this be done?

Great series of questions.....don't have a quick answer, have you thought of asking whoever contributed to the look of Zork? Not sure if someone like Splarka could help you out, I'll ask on IRC to see if anyone knows anything about it. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
That would be great if you could. I think you are somewhere on the zork history list. I started with DiZ...the Zork Implementor 5 or whatever user seems to be a construct. I think I actually have learned something today, and could stumble along with a linear game that wasn't fancy and didn't have a title in the upper left hand corner. The zork template will allow you to put in your own sub-title at the top of the template, but still says "Zork" in the top left hand corner. THe only way I can get rid of it is to use the template 'title-left|blah' and that just blanks it. Well, maybe my text and imagery will be so captivating users will not notice...--Shandon 22:57, 3 August 2006 (UTC) All right! Thanks to vigorous trial and error, or divine intervention, the title problem has been fixed. But the score question remains. I would like it if at the 'end' of the series of questions the game could say to itself "If the score is between 0 - 10, go to 'this page'. If the score is between 10 - 20, go to 'this other page'. And if the score is 20+, go to 'this extrememly special page'. We can all dream.--Shandon 04:53, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Hah! It's Done!--Shandon 18:30, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Twenty-Second Thanks On This Page

After yet another "tidy up" performed on one of my articles (though your "tidy ups" add much to the overall sheen, thereby making them greater than a minor edit) I thought it time to give you my Dude Award, but slapped it directly onto your awards page to save you the time. I actually had to check to see if I'd given you one already and was a bit peeved at myself that I hadn't, so I put on my jagged, shardy metal belt and went for a jog around the island. Just to really punish myself I listened to the entire collected works of Scriabin on my iPod. Fucking synesthetes and their colourful, smelly music. Anyway, thanks again (and for the vote also). Oh, almost forgot — would you be so kind as to pop over to the Smelly Teen Spirit page and tell me if you think the last picture in the Cobainime series is, well, whatever it is. I tried to make the whole subject as funny as possible, but I ain't too sure if I succeeded or not. Thank ya. -- Imrealized ...hmm? 22:34, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Thanks....a man can NEVER have too many awards. I'd like to dedicate it to all the people who make articles better, to all those who strive day and night to make Uncyclopedia a funnier place, with less suck, and more guffaws, to the people who have educated themselves within these hallowed halls, who have suckled on the teat of Wilde and Coward, sought illumination at the feet of the Ancient Masters and those who carry us forward with an eye on the future. It is not only an instinct to seek to better oneself, but the duty of all to assist others in their journey that makes us better people. We go forward as one. For Sophia. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
Oh yeah, well how about next time you create a table that is exactly what I envisioned yet lacked the ability to create and configure some words into some sentences that are side-splitting and perfectly in theme, you take a little more credit than a "minor edit"? Seriously though, great stuff. Albino? Perfect. I'd give you another award, but when you put two Dudes together they go at it like Siamese fighting fish, despite their usual mellowness. -- Imrealized ...hmm? 23:23, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

sorry bout that

i let my friend russel add them for me. apparently he put them in EVERY SINGLE FUCKING CATEGORY. i will skull-rape him just so he understands where i'm coming from. Italiafutbol CigaroDiscorsoArticoli 13:30, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

You know.....

Those images in the Pussy article are safe for work.

For In reality they are not.

So ha. Missingno


I'm a Pink-Bottomed Diaper-Fresh n00b...

...and I know you just wanna hug me.

But instead you can answer this.

I set up a test page called User:DawnLei:test. I just wanted to play around with wiki formatting and get the programming write (I mean right). So now that I'm done, how do I get rid of the gosh darn thing. Afterall, its not THAT witty, and I'm thinking I want to spare you the trouble of a NRV.

There's more....How do I upload a finished article from my user page onto the main page? I don't need to know this right away cause very shortly I will be submitting my first article to the Poo Lit Surprise and I noticed already (cause I is big braned) that my user page will suffice.

There's still more.....Your immediate attention to this matter will win you a rimjob....

......from Sparky, my pit bull.

--DawnLei 01:54, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi there. I deleted that page for you, you won't have to worry about it any more. And once the PLS is over you can use the "move" button to move an article to a new name. Just move it to a new name that doesn't have "User:DawnLei/" at the start of it. Do I win the rimjob? If so I think I'll pass that on to MoneySign, he'd love it infinitely more than me. Spang talk 03:51, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you kindly. Once I understand what a PLS is, I'll be in great shape. Aw gee, so much to learn.

Oh, and yes indeedy, you were quite timely and your rimjob is transferable. Sparky is a-droolin and hasn't had dinner yet. Tell MoneySign he needs to hurry.... --DawnLei 07:31, 8 August 2006 (UTC)

You're welcome..... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)

Well, I'm back....hoping this time you'll blow fake farts in my belly cause I'm so cute.

I need to be directed cause I am misdirecting myself in figuring out how to do redirects. You see, I have a couple of plural forms of already fantastically crafted (read crap) articles referred to in my article, so I would like my plural forms to be redirected to these fabulous (crappy) links since creating a plural form of the entry would possibly be unnecessary, maybe even stupid and unfunny, and I could go on cause long, wordy, unreadable, and unintelligible sentences that are misunderstood are my specialty.

It looks like MoneySign has a second opportunity to collect on his rimjob. Tell him Sparky likes it best if he doesn't wipe himself beforehand. --DawnLei 19:07, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Well, well, well! I figured out an option for myself before you could tell me what to do. I love it when I do that! Now I don't even need you to respond to give me information I don't need...how's that for a deal. Perhaps its you who should be giving Sparky a rimjob.

Of course, I may be back later, plying Sparky's favors and all, so please, tell me you love me.--DawnLei 08:07, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

NOOOOOOOOOO

WE WERE IMMORTALIZING THOSE! --KATIE!! 10:32, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

How was I supposed to guess you were playing with Mr Pecker? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me)
