Welcome to my talkpage. New stuff at the bottom, please.

PLS queries

so the PLS starts the 5th now? are we all set on judges? would you care to render some sort of official quote for the unsignpost as this year's poo-master? SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 02:06, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

The what is on the when? This is the first I've heard about it. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:42, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
a nice man on the street told me you were organizing it. he also tried to show me what he had under his trench coat but i was in such a hurry to get here that i told him i'd stop back by on the way home. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 03:00, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
The sordid details are here. I can mark you down as an emergency judge if you'd like (and if you wouldn't I can mark you down as two emergency judges).
And you want a quote:
"This Poo Lit will be the Greatest PLS ever. Anyone who says otherwise is as much of a liar as they are dumb, and they are plenty dumb. Ergo, they are also plenty liar. That made more sense in my head."
Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:11, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
well, i judged last go-around, and as most of the site's accomplished writers are already judging, i'm looking forward to expecting a clean sweep, and also the subsequent crushing disappointment associated with losing in every category. anyway, thanks for the quote, which will be mangled and mis-attributed as usual. SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 04:06, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
I've already picked the winners. Sorry. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:18, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
i see. well, it seems i've gone and purchased this rather large pheasant as a bribe to no avail after all. well, since i don't need it, i'll just go ahead and leave it right here on your talk page...SirGerrycheeversGunTalk 04:23, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
*munch munch munch* I'll see what I can do. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:03, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Project Doggystyle with the Devil Revisited

I've just came back from a series of important events in my usually unimportant, uneventful life. But at last, the Lord has finally shown his grace by not coughing up his goddamn hairballs every four hours. Now that I'm ready to complete the project, please unhuff the articles.

Sincerely,
markchung

Okay. Which articles? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:08, October 1, 2009 (UTC)
I'm assuming District 9 (human) and related. --Mn-z 04:32, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Sure. Those. I undeleted two. If there were more, I have no knowledge of them. I'm like The Absentminded Professor, except without the doctorate. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:07, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
I also believe that Category:MNU Approved and Category:MNU Banned should be unhuffed. --Mn-z 05:41, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Done. Keep in mind, markchung, that it needs to be more betterer, or it'll go away again. If you need lots of time, you can move it under your userpage. Also, don't forget to sign talkpages with four tildes (~~~~). Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:46, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Why?

I would like to inquire why you would huff the category People being hunted by ninja assault kittens Insight11 16:13, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Because no people are hunted by ninja assault kittens, I assume. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:17, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Modus, why do people do bad things? --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 17:30, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Because people are bad. Bad people! Off the furniture! Bad! Bad! Maybe that was pets. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:03, October 2, 2009 (UTC)
Because Adam ate the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden. --Mn-z 04:49, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
No. It's because, not knowing good & evil (that is to say, the positive or negative consequences of actions) in the first place, they disobeyed God (by eating the fruit that would give them the knowledge that they shouldn't eat the fruit). The bad wasn't the eating, it was the disobedience (from two people made perfect by a perfect God who also made the devil that rebelled). If I could condense the Bible into one word (particularly the OT and especially the Pentauch), it would be "Obey". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:58, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
Isn't that what I said? --Mn-z 05:37, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
If I could condense this talk page into one word, it would be "Hamburgers." Not that there's anything about hamburgers on this page, but I'm kinda hungry and they're on my mind. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 05:55, Oct 3

Trouble

Look, I've run out of ideas for Synesthesia, and this is an article that can be featured, surely. But I need help. Hey, I even included John Stamos for you.-Almost Sir Random Crap

I'll take a look at it when I'm in a better mood. *Grumble* Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:07, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

Relax

First, I think I'm pretty relaxed. Compulsive maybe, but probably relaxed. Second, WFP is important, at least to the status of Uncyclopedia. Third, I get aggravated when established and "valuable" editors and users of Uncyclopedia violate what is arguably its most important rule, leading me to wonder why I didn't leave before the average user became considered effectively worthless due to the high volume of new unfunny users. But I otherwise consider myself pretty dispassionate.
Thanks for writing anyways. Care to comment? I invite you wholeheartedly, Rbpolsen Come Rant · Come Look at all My Crap 01:25, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Hey, you do realize that you're getting mad on the internet? That's like crying over rainwater lost down a gutter, or falling in love with a telephone pole. It looks silly and it never goes anywhere. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 02:10, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
But seriously folks, speaking of looking silly and never going anywhere, Syndrome's here! But seriously folks, I'm here all week. But seriously folks, try the steak. (Drummer plays Modusoperandi out) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:07, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
Things on VFP either work or they don't, and there's nuffin' you can do about it. If you have to explain the joke, you've already lost. Have you considered going Goth? That's what I did. Consider you going Goth, I mean. Don't. You look terrible in velvet. I, on the other hand, look Gothtastic, and magnificently, depressingly so. It's too bad that the only vampires around these days are vegetarian abstinence vampires. This century sucks. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:12, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Don't do it when you want to go to it.

Seeing as how this'll be my first experience judging PLS, could you point me in the general direction of some judging guidelines? Is there a standard procedure I'm supposed to follow? Also, your talkpage seems a little blue. Cheer up Modus' talkpage, everything's gonna be okay. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN20:24, 8 Oct

ficksed FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 20:34 October 8 '09
Ummm.... didn't I fix it right before you fixed it in a slightly different way? How do we keep overwriting each other? What the fuck is going on? Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 20:38, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
No kidding? FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 20:40 October 8 '09
I'm against standardizing how people judge, as comedy won't fit in a box, man.
Have you done Pee Reviews? Judging like that seems to work for most. I, being a simple man, use a simpler system. I read each one (doing my best to not know who wrote it...going so far as to tape off the top part of the monitor), then go get drunk or punch a cop downtown or something. When I recover I read them again, and rate them from one to ten. If at the end I'm stuck with tied pages, I read them again and again, until the tie resolves itself in my head (like foxy boxing but with fat people and words).
And my talkpage isn't blue. It's grumpy. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:38, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
Anyplace in particular where I'd put my completely ignorant and arbitrary decisions? Or do we just all shout them out on the count of three? Also, your talkpage should stop being so grumpy. At least it's not a ginger. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN20:46, 8 Oct
When the time for judging is here, I'll put the link to the right place on your talkpage.
And I'm grumpy because I forgot to put a page of mine on Pee Review so that I could VFH it in time for the anniversary of the thing that the page was about. Double-grumpy because the exact same thing happened this time last year. *Grumble* Plus I have a sore shoulder and can't even complain about it out loud since I'm pretty sure that it's because, rather than fighting Nazis or something equally cool, I slept on my arm. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:00, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
Slept on your arm because you were exhausted from fighting Nazis, right? Just arbitrarily feature your article on the appropriate day. It's not like anybody reads Uncyclopedia anyways. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN21:11, 8 Oct
I does FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 21:13 October 8 '09
Naw. I already featured me. Any chicanery from there would be a step down. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:16, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
chicanery? wuzzat? FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 21:18 October 8 '09

Warn him

Listen, I do not know if you are an admin or not, but please warn or ban Killer 3.14. He keeps screwing and fucking up the forums, he hasn't made one article, he's already been banned 3 times, and he only cares about his retarded game. Finally, he acts like a 10-year old with ADHD. It's your choice, just please make him do something productive to our amount of 25,000 articles.-Almost Sir Random Crap

Done. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:32, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Question:

Are you planning on writing any articles for PLS? I know you're "running" it and all, but the rules don't limit you on that one (I don't think so, anyway...). I'll take you on in best alt. namespace. Bring it. Necropaxx (T) {~} Friday, 07:10, Oct 9

No. That would be wrong. Besides, I just bought a new mirror and can't stop gazing at my reflection in it. Full length mirror. I'm really quite breathtaking. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:58, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Can has I me PLS entry proofreading?

being funny foreigner who speaking English for his 3rd language, and verbally retarded, so you can makes exception —Mahmoosh (TalkstalkBoobsAnusPoop) 10:54 October 9 '09

I would say no. The idea is that you do it on your own. Having other people do stuff for your page is the opposite of that. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 13:06, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
<begging>Oh, please. Writing humor in a language that is not your first is hard enough, believe me (and I'm not joking) please, don't make it harder for me, I just want somebody to correct the spelling grammar and mistakes</begging> you can make the proofreading thing an exception for foreigners —Mahmoosh (TalkstalkBoobsAnusPoop) 13:26 October 9 '09
(Use Word's spellcheck/grammar thingy or get a friend or parent to check it. That's what I would do if I didn't know english so goodly. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:04, October 9, 2009 (UTC))
I'm actually mostly on my mobile phone (no Word spealtshek) My parents' English is not by any means better than mine (they're foreigners too, remember?) and I only have 2 friends whose English is better than mine, and both of them are currently out of country. Dude, it's a total disaster, I must have my article spellchecked —Mahmoosh (TalkstalkBoobsAnusPoop) 14:30 October 9 '09
I hate to sound like a jerk but...And so? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:48, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
forget it. i was just kidding all along :) —Mahmoosh (TalkstalkBoobsAnusPoop) 15:15 October 9 '09
You think playing with my heart is a joke? *Sniff* Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:27, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
Do you have access to a computer somewhere? Most typing programs have some sort of spell check. Even the firefox browser has spellcheck. --Mn-z 15:04, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
My Vista is down, and I'm waiting for a windows 7, and until then im not installing any other OS —Mahmoosh (TalkstalkBoobsAnusPoop) 15:15 October 9 '09

We haz invalidz.

For PLS, Hydronium Ion has submitted an article for Best Alt. Namespace that was both created before PLS started, and plagiarized. What should the next course of action be? Where the Wild Colins Are - LET THE WILD RUMPUS START! 22:21, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Taken care of. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 22:31, Oct 9
What Leddy said. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:26, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
What about this entry having been created before the competition and having been pee reviewed? MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 23:29, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. Um. That. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:38, October 9, 2009 (UTC)
That one article? With the words that were previously written somewhere else? I think That Balloon fellow did something wrong with that thing there. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN14:53, 10 Oct
I told him what to do on his talk page. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 15:00, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
What's he supposed to do on his talkpage? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:11, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Fix that thing he did and then erase that other thing that wasn't supposed to be there or something. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN15:20, 10 Oct
With his cock? MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 15:23, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
If by cock you mean penis, then no. Don't be ridiculous, this is a wiki. I'm sure he'll just use voodoo. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN15:28, 10 Oct

Nice Block

You can haz cookie. ~Joey~ {Talk to meh} 06:38, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Give yourself a cookie too. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:40, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

Whoops. Sorry

I sincerely apologize for entering the article that I created prior to PLS. I didn't read the rules properly. It won't happen again. --BlueSpiritGuy 14:29, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

We do original stuff here. Remember that. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 14:49, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Wrong thing to say, Modus. This is the guy who wrote an original article, but he did so before PLS. Plus he had it Pee Reviewed. The other guy c/p an article. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 14:53, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Wups. I was just coming back to change my comment to, simply, "Noob", too. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:10, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Oh so I'm also not allowed to have it Pee Reviewed? Mmmm, think I'll have to start reading rules and stuff thoroughly. Anyway, sorry. And yes, I deserve to be called n00b.--BlueSpiritGuy 15:27, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry, we were all noobs once. Except for Modus. He was always here, just waiting for Uncyclopedia to arrive. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us CUN15:30, 10 Oct

And the verdict is.. Guildy

Wow, the only contender for the best article category is Guildy. Dude, something is seriously wrong. I kid you not.. And it's not the only category with one entry.. Something is wrong, I tell you FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 16:28 October 10 '09

Someone else is bound to enter the category. If need be, I will. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 16:29, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
If you would like to panic, go right ahead. I, on the other hand, am planning on running the worst Poo Lit ever. It'll be my Waterloo, but with Napoleon instead of ABBA. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:11, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
Whats a "napoleon"? FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 20:22 October 10 '09
It's a kind of brandy. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:26, October 10, 2009 (UTC)
I thought it was a special type of condoms FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 21:07 October 10 '09

Yo, I'll enter. When's the deadline again? February? —Syndrome (PenisPenisPenisPenisPenis) 20:46, October 10, 2009 (UTC)

No, the Xth of Farch FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 21:07 October 10 '09

I might hurl up a literary fur ball for this. No promises. Congrats on O'Reilly Sir, I was slightly confused when it first went up then it grew on me.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  10:55, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

And just to be clear on the issue

I delete any shock picture I encounter, as I did lately with Islam related articles, I try to keep a minimal respect for all defiled dead people in general and not just dead Jews. That picture had no place being here ~Jewriken.GIF 18:17, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

0_0 that's very nice of you, thanks FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 19:07 October 11 '09
I have been noticing some double standards regarding the Jews. For example, User:Roman Dog Bird was requested to remove a swastika from his sig, but no-one had a problem with him using the words "nigger" and "faggot". And, UnNews talk:Dictators hail Jewish peace plan was called "a piece of political slander" when attacks 10 worse against the USA and Bush (and everybody else) are permitted.
As for the dead people images, it seems we don't have many, the only ones I found were this crudely drawn lynching and Saddam Hussein right before being executed, so I wouldn't say that deletion was bad per say. --Mn-z 19:59, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Gosh, it's almost like Mordillo's jewish or something. If Orian or Fag had a problem with the use of the word faggot, or if a black uncyclopedian took offense to the word nigger, by all means they can deal with that, but those are words. The differentiation here seems to be between words and pictures. Words are one thing; pictures are another. - T.L.B. Baloon WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 20:14, Oct 11
But Leddy, a picture is a merely one thousand words. I did the math. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:15, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
What if I were to crop together two images? Wouldn't the resulting picture be worth 2000 words? Clearly, each pixel must be worth a given number of words. If we assume the 1000 word picture is the default size of an MS Paint bitmap, ie. 640x384, then each 245.76 pixels equals one word. So, a large 1024x768 image would be worth 3,200 words, while a 100x100 animated gif is worth 40.7 words per frame. --Mn-z 21:31, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
also, mnbz, the use of swastikas is federally outlawed in germany and some other countries. swastikas were used by the nazi reich and are now used by neonazis, and that gives the swastika a political dimension. on the other hand the words nigger and faggot are being used inside black and gay communities to refer to each others and are only considered taboos if used by outsiders.. yes, the three subjects are equally demeaning and disrespectful, but only the swastika has the "political charge" FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 20:22 October 11 '09
The fact the "nigger" and "faggot" are used by black people and homosexuals respectively does not make them any less racist. The swastika was used in non-political contexts, up on it the 1930's and 1940's, and has more non-racist usage than the word "nigger" which was always derogatory, if less so in the past. --Mn-z 21:11, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Also, my issue isn't with the pic per say, its with the scared cows and double standards. --Mn-z 21:17, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
yes, i totally agree with you. i've been called a sandnigger on several occations, and it hurts.. double standards suck of course, but that's how it is FreddCan Shredd 22px-Flag_of_Egypt.png 18px-Foxicon.png 21:27 October 11 '09
Scared what now? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:02, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Sacred Cow

A sacred cow

Sacred cows are golden statues which the Jews worship at high places in Dan and Bethel. I;m am also told that Hindus and some sub-Saharan African tribes also worship sacred cows. --Mn-z 01:02, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
You had "scared" before. I was poking fun at that. (Also, look at my edit comment) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:07, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but I still think we have too much cow worship on this wiki. --Mn-z 01:16, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
What did you expect? This is the Chubbychaserswiki, right? Oh. Crap. I've been wasting my time on the wrong wiki. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:28, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
You mean this isn't the Chubbychaserswiki!!! That explains why nobody why likes that one category I created. --Mn-z 01:38, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
Not everyone dislikes it. POTR
You wouldn't be coming out of the closet, again? --Mn-z 02:13, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

This section of my talkpage isn't funny at all. You people suck. (and by "you people" I mean "you people". And by the second "you people" I mean "Uncyclopedians") Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:15, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

On a more serious note, I'm also offended by Orian57's constant degrading of my sexual perversion orientation. --Mn-z 21:21, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
That's because you're a monster. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:02, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
True. But that still doesn't justify Orian57's bigotry. --Mn-z 01:02, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Theres a picture of Muhammad about to suck cock on User:An Ape that Only Exists on Thursdays userpage and talkpage. Will that be deleted cause its a shock image? --121.214.60.1 22:42, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

I'm too busy being stunned by the fact that Ape has a userpage to be shocked by whateverelseitwas that you said. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:10, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
Also, the image survived VFD so it's unlikely that an admin would ignore that and delete the image on a whim. —Syndrome (PenisPenisPenisPenisPenis) 23:16, October 11, 2009 (UTC)
I have to say that I am offended by the word the. Can we remove all instances of the from Wikipedia? and on an indefinite stance, I'm not too crash hot about a either. Can we remove every second time that that particular letter shows up on here? Pup t 01:28, 12/10/2009
can I say that Ape's shock image is annoying as hell? If I'm ever delivering signpost again, unless there's nobody around I'm skipping his page! -- Soldat Teh PWNerator (pwnt!) 02:11, Oct 12
No, you cant. Pup t 02:17, 12/10/2009
I don't plan on just skipping it and not telling everyone. i'll say I'm done except for 1 person, whose page is not safe for work-- Soldat Teh PWNerator (pwnt!) 02:20, Oct 12
Oh the skipping it is fine. The reason I was saying no is that you said "can I say that..." Pup t 02:27, 12/10/2009

Moar Issues

Looking back on the history of events, it appears the questionable image was uploaded before Mordillo corrected Clemens177 in the vote dramaz. It appears that Mordillo recently resurrected Clemens177, so I assume he realized that. And the ban time was reasonable for VFH vote drama.

Although, this does raise the issue of overly nationalist (or otherwise group-identified) admins interpreting any overly edgy humor against a certain group as a personal insult. I think that could be minimized if we discouraged broadcasting one' nationality/sexual orientation/whatever-group-affiliation in sigs.

And while I'm complaining about policy, several users have been insulting me by mocking and degrading my sexual perversion orientation. I think it is because I voted against their articles on VFH one time, or nomed their articles articles on VFD, or put there ip address on ban patrol, or something else they are having passive-aggressive drama over. It clearly can't be them actually finding pregnancy "humor" unfunny/disturbing. --Mn-z 17:47, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

So you're saying that we shouldn't advertise our backgrounds because it would let people know that we're involved in some sort of worldwide conspiracy? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:08, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
More or less. --Mn-z 18:12, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
Say Mnb, did it ever occur to you that you'll get better results if you talk with me rather than about me? ~Jewriken.GIF 18:14, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

You're an admin, right?

If so, please tell the mortals that they won't be banned for improving an article. I agree that you shouldn't significantly change the content of something while it's being voted on, but minor fixings won't hurt anyone. And tell POTR that I don't have to let him play with my fire truck. It's mine! I brought it! --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 04:59, October 12, 2009 (UTC)

Scared the living bejesus out of me. I looked at it, went away, and then came back to look at it and somebody had apparently huffed it! Pup t 23:38, 12/10/2009

I know, right?! I was all, "Hey that's not supposed to be there" and "For Poo Lit, as it mentioned on the Poo Lit page for Poo Lit, pages for Poo Lit are supposed to be in userspace". Then I was all, like, "Wuppah!" and I moved it. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:42, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
It's spelled "Huttah." Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 23:51, October 12, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, and someone explained it to me and I thought to myself, "I should fix that, but nobody's going to change it for a day or so. Especially someone who hasn't been around for a while." And then I looked at this morning and realised that it had been changed, and so I went away for a moment to get my breakfast, came back and it had gone, but in an extremely polite way.

Question about Poo Lit surprise suitability

I created a blank page for my upcoming article User:Myocardialinfarction/Sexual Orienteering, but before the poo lit contest started (I hadn't even remotely finished it enough for public viewing). Would I be able to post it and enter for the 'best article by a n00b' category? (I've been here slightly less than 3 months). I humbly prostrate myself before your judgement and assume the position. Thx Myocardialinfarction 14:16, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

If I were Modus, I would rule that you may write the article as long as you didn't use the words "arse" or "iPhone." But I'm not Modus, so basically I'm just wasting everyone's time here. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 14:21, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
I came up with what I thought was a good solution, what do you think to it Modus/anyone who happens to be passing? The preceding unsigned comment was added by ChiefjusticeDS (talk • contribs)
I think you forgot to sign your post and your personal hygiene leaves something to be desired. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 16:33, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
Well, anything apart from that? --ChiefjusticeDS 19:05, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
That page isn't blank. It's even got a joke. An unmolested page or an unedited spork, maybe. This, no. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:08, October 13, 2009 (UTC)
That's just throwaway guff I put there to avoid being a total waste of someone's clicking time (look at the edit history if you can be bothered). It's not a page; it's not 'XTZ is gay'-as-content, it's just not an article. Yet. Well, I'll post it eventually anyway (as per the Chief's advice, blame him if it isn't funny - I'll leave out that iphone gag, which would probably do better as a surprise somewhere else, or forgotten entirely), and that shall be my revenge. Hope PLS turns over some better rocks than mine. Myocardialinfarction 00:26, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

PLS and my sad little entry

It has been bounced back and forth into and out of my userspace a fair bit, and the sound file from Zim is funny and it does improve it, especially with the two of them in there. Of course that would invalidate it from being PLS candidate if it stayed there with the amendments. So, given that you are God when it comes to PLS, I propose the following:

  1. This get moved back to here and this is my entry into PLS.
  2. This stays where it is and keep Rev Zim happy, but stays unrelated to PLS. That way Zim is happy, you're happy, I'm happy, and there is harmony in our family again, and I can get back to looking for jail bait cybersex. Pup t 23:08, 13/10/2009
I didn't invalidate it. Since Zim's edit was the only not-you edit, and his edit was only adding the audio, I "hid" his contribution and let your page in PLS. Then he undid all that. You can have it one way or the other. Either it's in mainspace with the audio (and not in userspace and not entered in PLS), or it's in your userspace without the audio (and not in mainspace, but entered in PLS). Have a chat with Zim if you decide on the latter. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:53, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

Sorry to have caused all this trouble. Feel free to chastise me publicly and repudiate me privately. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 15:43, October 14, 2009 (UTC)

Non-issue - you made my life awkward because I did something stupid with something good and you made it better. I'm not a prize whore so I'm happy to take it our of the running and keep the better version of it in place if I have to choose between the two. Pup t 03:31, 15/10/2009
Puppy why don't you keep it in user space without Zim's work, then after voting's over move it to mainspace with Zim's audio? Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 03:35, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Because that would make sense. We're through the looking glass here people. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:49, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Non-issue - It's off the main UnNews page, so it can (and should IMOP) be in the running. It's a fine article by a fine Aussie. Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 15:45, October 15, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, I will re-establish it back in my userspace, hide zim's audio (for the moment) and re-validate my invalidated entry. Which means, thankfully, I can stop working on writing something else. I was afraid I'd have to come up with another original idea then too. Pup t 23:46, 15/10/2009

PLS question

Just thought you'd want to know this. I started an article after the PLS began, and an anonymous user edited it: [1]. It was two spelling corrections on a really rough draft that's full of misspellings, grammatical errors and the like (I don't bother worrying about such things in early drafts.) I reverted the edits [2] and later added {{PLS-WIP}} to help prevent it from happening again. I hope this isn't a problem. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 00:47, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

Any idea what? On the previous time, I finally realized it only happened when I was trying to edit a talk page that had comments from a particular user. I've never had this problem on any page that doesn't have user signatures. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 18:09, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

A little cynical...

Forgive me for being a little cynical, but I get the feeling that Padimir Padoffski is a sockpuppet generated to win PLS. It seems odd that only a couple of days after the competition starts, a n00b is created who churns out a number of articles in extremely short succession, and edit #10 is an entry in PLS. I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I'd like to think that n00b prizes are given to n00bs to encourage them to become regular editors, not to sockpuppets for the vainglorious. Completely your call. Pup t 01:17, 18/10/2009

I have no way of checking (only Sannse seems to, and she only uses it to increase her power by crushing political rivals). To save time, I assume that all noobs are really banned users, returning under a new name. In a couple of months, the ego will get them banned again. They'll lay low for a while, then pop up as a new noob a few months later. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:32, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Well, either way it's a moot point now. Two edits since I wrote this and then offski. Pup

Rules of baseball

This replacement nomination of mine is not exactly pure either. As I point out in the table, perhaps 20% of it is still substantially as it was in the article on Baseball. I made nominations in the relevant categories because someone in a Forum cited the PLS apathy as evidence of the cosmic decline of Uncyclopedia, and the two nominations I have now are my only work confined to the nomination period. You may remove this nomination if warranted, with no hard feelings. Spıke ¬  03:20 18-Oct-09

Yeah, um. That. To be safe, you have a day to cut out the non-original stuff, or you can just give up ("Give up." Tyler takes hands off steering wheel. "Just. Give. Up."

Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:43, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
I shall do no such thing, but instead withdraw the nomination. Whoever wrote the original Section 3 of Baseball (up to 7-Oct) sounds like a Brit who never watched a game, but he succeeded at humor in a few cases. A recent arrival of two months (me) should not totally discard the work that came before in order to win a prize. (No one else should either.) PS--Fantastic Four is comparable, totally within the nomination period but also not all mine. But you might enjoy it if you saw the movie. Spıke ¬  03:56 18-Oct-09
"A recent arrival of two months (me) should not totally discard the work that came before in order to win a prize." Stop being noble. That's my schtick.

Would this be stupid

Would it violate some sort of rule if I posted a message on a judge's talk page about that judge's comments about an article I entered in PLS? Or would that just be stupid? And no, I would not be trying to change someone's opinion for two reasons: 1) It wouldn't work, and 2) if it did work, it would get everyone else who entered pissed at me. Should I wait until the contest is completely over, and then make a fool of myself? Or is it OK to do it now? I know I could just wait for three days, but by then I might forget what I wanted to say.

FORTRAN

You've taken User:SPIKE/FORTRAN out of the PLS Rewrite competition on the grounds that it is an exact copy of FORTRAN. Yes it is. I merged FORTRAN and Fortran, between 14-Oct and 18-Oct, and on 18-Oct, copied it to my user space as seems to be required for PLS. What did I do wrong? Spıke ¬  03:05 24-Oct-09

Unless I'm terribly mistaken, merging two existing pages is not a rewrite. It's a merge. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:26, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
There was plenty of rewriting. But if those are the rules, so be it. Thanks for the reply. Spıke ¬  03:36 24-Oct-09
I've just done a comparison of Fortran and FORTRAN and User:SPIKE/FORTRAN. Spike has done a fair amount of rewriting along with this merge, in that what he has produced has been significantly more then the sum of the two independent previous articles. The fact that he has changed the version in Main space to be the same as the version he is submitting to PLS is not quite within the letter of the rules, but is also not against the letter of the rules. It was rewritten during the relevant period, and is quality work. But, again, you are the casting vote and the only one that counts here, M, so completely in your hands as to what to do. (As long as it doesn't include banning me for being annoying.) Pup t 04:01, 24/10/2009
SPIKE should have mentioned that earlier. HOW comes??? 04:04, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
Maybe, but then again the fact that he's mentioning it now suggests that he may not have realised until today. He's said several times before that he keeps his watchlist down to a minimum (forgive me for not looking for it) and on the actual nom he does mention that it is a merge of the two articles, and looking at the history supports it. Nobody actually informed him of the fact that it had been removed from contention on his talkpage - myself included, as I did notice it and was cheering it on as an underdog, and was surprised when it was removed without comment from Spike. (God, I'm good at this devil's advocate business.) Pup t 04:15, 24/10/2009
Okay. I've undone what I did, and asked the judges to take into account your article. My apologies. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:21, October 24, 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. Indeed I had even taken PLS off my watch list and thus was a few days late seeing it had been Un-nominated. I have not done work in my workspace for the purpose of winning PLS; again, when I saw the gripe that the low number of nominations meant the death of Uncyclopedia, I picked my best shots and made copies in my userspace (not the other way around). This may mean that all my nominations are invalid; if so, I am happy to continue editing and leave the prizes for the people who like fame--but it's neat that y'all are looking out for me.

Regarding mine, there is already FORTRAN in mainspace as I made an exact copy in my userspace to submit the work to PLS.

VFD

Can I get an explanation? Spıke ¬  18:19 9-Nov-09

When a user finds a page that they consider to be of poor quality, they put it on VFD. While there, other users can vote to keep or delete that page.

I would be willing to retract my VFD nomination for this reason. However, the WIP tag has been there since June and the kid has faithfully made token changes at least once a week, which renew its tenuous lease on life. A more fundamental reason is in my nomination: The kid is using Uncyclopedia to develop a fictional universe, and we have deleted pieces of it on the grounds that they don't relate to anything, they're not funny, and they're poorly written. I don't really care that HZ Corps. be deleted, but that y'all take a consistent position for or against his project. Spıke ¬  19:20 9-Nov-09

I didn't know of his "tag abuse" when I nominated it; studied it after Mordillo's comment. Thank you for locking the nomination before anyone voted.

You'll assume I'll something something something? Is that the best plan? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:28, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
You may have a point there. Perhaps better than politely advising him of the rules of WIP would be to explain to him exactly why his articles are disappearing, and probably will continue to do so. But even that is above my pay grade. Spıke ¬  20:53 9-Nov-09

Pilgrim Fathers

Ironlung reviewed my article The Pilgrim Fathers and suggested that I ask an admin to get the page/pages Pilgrims to redirect to it. I'm told people of the American persuasion don't use the term pilgrim fathers but then they can't spell either.

There is an article already listed on Pilgrim, however. I'm no judge of its worth but Ironlung says it's crap and I'd tend to agree. Anyway, I'm assuming you're an admin so I guess you get to choose whether it's a good idea / whether you can be bothered to do the suggested redirect(s). I'm not going to beg. Much. Sog1970 16:54, November 10, 2009 (UTC)

Why did you unban user:Luvvy? She's really divisive, setting users against one another. I see you reverted the change to infinite ban by Roman Bird Dog. Had you noticed I'd upped her from a week to three months before that? I'd have thought you'd revert to my original three months and maybe ask me about it before returning her rights unilaterally.

I'm giving her a three month ban again because I feel strongly, along with others, that she deserves it, and she needs to have an enforced cooling off period. She's been warned and banned time and again. Please get back to me on my user talk page about this in any case. I want to know how you weigh in. Thanks, and cheers! Zimbuddha Rev.

Spanish Inquisition

I'm doing some stuff with the religion portal, and I got confused about a couple of articles. Spanish Inquisition and Spanish Inquisition (TV show) (which has the featured template on it, which, to me, doesn't seem to belong there) seem to be awry somehow, and it seems like you're the bloke to ask about it. What's up with these? Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 18:14, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

The first is a one-joke gag and the second appears to be a feature from 2005. Our standards were, um, different then. Neither of them is particularly good. If Sophia is kind, the first one will be rewritten. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:26, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
Ok, I'll leave things as they are, except to put them both as category:Religion... if this is ok with you. Let me know if you object, so I'll know how to treat them for the religion portal; I myself like the idea of that feature... to me, it still works under current "standards". Cheers! Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 18:33, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
The idea for the TV show one is alright, it just doesn't look finished. It's all steak, no sizzle, but with not much steak, either. But until somebody does them better, just leave 'em. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:43, November 13, 2009 (UTC)
If only there were some week that was set aside for people to rewrite things. Wait, a week might not be enough. Make it two weeks. And we could do it twice a year! That's like, four weeks of rewriting right there! I'm excited. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 21:11, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

OK I am freaked out

So I'm surfin' the net, clicking links, all that jazz. Then I notice a link on Yahoo!'s main page about Conservatives rewriting the Bible. Apparently they have been going at it for some time now. I click the link and it takes me to Conservapedia. Surprise, surprise. As I read the overview, I'm getting more and more alarmed. These people are serious. They are actually rewriting the Bible. Some of the doctrinal changes they are making I can understand where they came from, but removing entire stories like Jesus forgiving the adulteress and "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do"? And that's not the worst part! They are changing words to support a conservative ideology instead of the original intent! Quite frankly, I am horrified. This is cut-and-dried wrong. Why on earth do these people think they have the authority to tamper with the Bible? How can you go so off course?

You're probably wondering why I'm putting this here. Well, I'd just like to know what you think about it. No doubt you already know about it. Really though, I just want to know if I'm really seeing what everybody else is or if this is some massive prank of some sort.

I have never been more ashamed of referring to myself as a conservative, if this is what conservatives are doing. Necropaxx (T) {~} Friday, 08:19, Dec 4 2009

Where have you been? They've been at it for awhile, and they certainly aren't the first to do it. Conservapedia is just more open about it, that's all. The adulteress story is widely considered to be a later addition, so they're probably right about that (which only proves that a broken clock is right twice a day). My favourite edits are the ones where they replace "Pharisees" with "liberals" or "people who read books and know stuff". The "redact the Bible" crowd of the Right is a tiny, tiny minority. Most of the Christians that agree with the Conservapedia-style stance on everything else are "KJV only" so, for once, Conservapedia is getting it from both sides. It won't go anywhere. It is funny though (considering that they're making liberals Pharisees when, if they paused briefly to look at themselves, they'd discover that they are Pharisees), and a little bit scary (the confidence of people who know nothing and, indeed, take pride in that fact, always catches me off guard). Of course, I'm still getting over the fact that the mother of the creator of Conservapedia, Phyllis Schlafly, spent the better part of her life going around America telling people that women should stay in the kitchen. The Right, as a group, seems to have no sense of irony. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:44, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
This is one of the reasons why I'm not religious. Also, wow, not a single pun, joke or non-sequitur in that entire block of text. You feeling alright, Modus? --Andorin Kato 08:50, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
It's hard to top a group that is already a parody of themselves. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:55, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
I agree. I fell out of my chair when I heard of this. "Conservapedia rewrites the Bible to fit idealogy" sounds like an UnNews article, and all their changes sound like the jokes in said article. Further proof that reality is stranger than fiction. -- Kip > Talk Works Puzzle Potato Dry Brush CUN Icons-flag-us 09:12, Dec. 4, 2009
I agree, although I'm more on the side of "that's scary" than "that's hilarious!", mostly because they are deadly serious. I wrote a rant at them last night and put it on the project's talk page.

I've also read that the adulterous story is likely a later addition, but it's still one of my favorite Jesus stories. I just assume that it's accurate, and it took generations for someone to write it down (or for the Holy Spirit to inspire someone to write it down). And people have been redoing the Bible to fit their agenda for hundreds of years (the NIV is one of the few that doesn't censor a lot of the dirty parts, such as some parts of Ezekiel). Did you know that, under United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) guidelines up through the late 20th century, there were parts of the King James Bible that, if read on air, would automatically fall under obscenity laws? A friend and I have had a laugh or two thinking about someone getting arrested for reading the Bible in America.

Spang, as before, is the one you have to convince. I'm not getting into an edit war with another admin unless it's damn well necessary, and by "necessary" I mean "to save that thing I wrote that one time, which was awesome". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:29, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

typical badgering

Can you try working out some sort of compromise with Spang, like a vote or something on whether or not to mainspace the articles in question? I think that will work better than me and Hype badgering everybody until it gets re-created. And, he's actually edit warring because that thing you said that one time about not bringing that one article to VFD for a month. --Mn-z 06:22, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
*Sigh* Spang is the only person here you have to convince. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:57, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Deletes and Reverts

Your welcome message says "Never recreate a deleted article. Never redo a reverted edit. Never." Yet I got in trouble after someone else redid my reverted edit, and a certain user here recently got two previously huffed articles featured. Could you clarify this for a person who has a habit of asking annoying questions? WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 02:15, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Yes. I didn't write "my" welcome template. I just stole it from someone else. I hope that clears things up. (Alternately, "Never recreate a deleted article" applied to noobs, who have a habit of making a bad page, coming back a day later to find it was deleted, then remaking the exact same page the same way, with the same lack of quality. "Never redo a reverted edit" may refer to the fact that it's better to discuss the edit with the editor, rather than engaging in a revert war) Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:19, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
All right, thanks. But maybe the "Never recreate a deleted article" could be softened a bit. As it happens, the huffed article that was later featured was recreated by a noob who was told "you're doing it wrong" and fortunately ignored the advice. And there's already the warning when someone's trying to write a previously huffed article, basically saying are you sure you want to do this? I don't see that it's any worse to write an article on, say, Archery just because it was huffed than it is to start an article on Archery when it wasn't huffed. On the other hand, you may get some anally-retentive type like me who will be told "never" and who will still be following that policy 20 years later. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:07, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
By re-create a deleted article, it is probably meant recreating deleted content, not creating a new article with the same page-name as a deleted one. --Mn-z 06:11, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
While I agree with Why? that the message is misleading, I don't think it's a serious problem. If a new user sees a generic message telling him not to create a certain page but does it anyway, he's either an idiot and his ban was inevitable, or he's able to think critically and interpret the message like Modusoperandi and Mnbvcxz did, in which case he just might be a good writer. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 06:15, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
I'll assume you weren't intending to insult me, but I did say had I gotten that message I might still be following what I thought it meant 20 years later. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:34, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't trying to insult you. What you would have done is ask someone if you can recreate a page 20 seconds later from when you decided that you wanted to create it. That's a valid approach too. To each his own. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 06:40, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
Ok cool. In that case, I think it would clear it up if the wording were changed, maybe to "Never recreate a deleted article--you can make a new one under the same name, though." But then I doubt most new users would know how to recreate an article that had been huffed anyway. WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 06:31, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
I think I stole it from TheLedBalloon. Talk to him. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:56, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

Possible dramaz

I dealt with it. I think. To be honest, there's a blank in my memory and now my hands are covered in blood. No, wait...ketchup. Whew, that was close. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:36, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Holy crap I just put something here I meant for Mordillo's talkpage. Anyway. Good job with that thing. I'd give you a cookie but I don't want you getting fat. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 07:13, December 9, 2009 (UTC)
