That was a decent imitation. But we don't esteem imitations. Excellent pages may involve imitations, but also must involve cleverness. Being able to imitate is like a hockey player being able to skate. Now we need to see your shot. Cheers. Spıke Ѧ 22:33 30-Nov-12

edit Disintegration

If you want to use a link that does not exist, you need not create a link. Just code it as:

[[name of link|how you want it to read]].

I just thought it would help with the search box --MrRatermat2 (talk) 22:42, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

Might be useful some day -- especially if you want to flesh it out -- but, bottom line, you didn't need to create a page to achieve the effect you wanted. No harm done, though. If someone searches for "Disintegration" and doesn't find it, he's free to create it too. Spıke Ѧ 22:47 30-Nov-12

edit The Art Of Programming

“My grandson tells me he can do simple programming, I just wish he would change the Jerry Springer show to a later time...”
~ Grandma misunderstanding programming

I had only one problem with your edits: In the above quote, yes, what Grandma is doing is misunderstanding "programming"--and what you are doing is explaining the joke, which kind of spoils it. So I minced words (after also deciding that Grandma would probably want the show earlier, not later). I was in after you were, here and on a related article last night. Without objecting to what you did, after you had finished with the X-Acto blade, I decided that a more appropriate editing tool for the sections you had worked on was the Meat-axe.

edit "Its really shitty"

Typing your opinion of an article on its talk page is not the most productive way to make changes happen. (Making them happen yourself is.) You could take the article to Votes for Deletion, and sometimes someone like me will step forward for the Save, but of course it's more likely that the article will be deleted whether that's what you wanted or not. Rather than scolding someone who wrote a comment (on 17-Dec-07, in this case), for not signing it, use {{Unsigned}}, as in The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) ; this is stigma enough, though that guy won't care. Regarding the quote above, always use good English ("It's") when criticizing some one else's writing. Cheers. Spıke Ѧ 20:10 9-Dec-12

Why do you follow me EVERYWHERE?! --MrRatermat2 (talk) 20:12, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

It's nothing personal. I am watching Special:RecentChanges, which shows all activity anywhere on Uncyclopedia. I guess it is personal, as when I see something is you, I read the change to see how you are coming along. You are lucky because personal guidance may mean you become a good Uncyclopedian faster than otherwise. Exercise for the reader: Experiment with the tabs at the top of the screen (Hint: History on the second line) to find out how I knew that the change you replied to was made in 2007. Also, note that My contributions on the top line shows every edit you've ever made, and everyone can see that too. Spıke Ѧ 20:18 9-Dec-12

PS--A rather more serious point than grammar, or than leaving a message that is not likely to reach its recipient, is that saying that any work is "really shitty" is unlikely to induce the result that you want. Many of us pride ourselves on giving incisive commentary, and not enough on "seeing ourselves (and our commentaries) as others will see us." Spıke Ѧ 22:00 9-Dec-12

But it IS a fact, the article IS shit. I suggest that it should be rewritten, because it simply is just a pile of jokes that aren't really funny. --MrRatermat2 (talk) 13:30, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
How about you rewrite it, MrRat? Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 13:32, 10 December, 2012 (UTC)
Why would you trust me to rewrite it? I would be happy to rewrite it, but I just simply cannot be trusted. (Its rule 7 of the guide to be evil. "Do not be trusted.") --MrRatermat2 (talk) 13:35, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
Well, because you want it to be rewriten, so I could trust you this time to make the rewrite happen. Actually, I have no idea what article you guys are talking about, but what I understood from the answer you gave to Spike, that it is really that shitty, rewrite would be more than wished. Maybe by you. And if you really feel that you cannot be trusted, we can help you. Trust me. Hah. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 13:42, 10 December, 2012 (UTC)

The comments I was talking about are at Talk:Horse and Talk:Sheep. The problem there is that your comments neither provide direction to improve the article, nor motivation for anyone to do it on your behalf; only a declaration that you aren't going to do the work. It is always safe to experiment with your own humor ideas at, for example, User:MrRatermat2/Horse (just click on that red-link to begin!) and ask other users or submit it for Pee Review before replacing the offending article.

edit Citation needed

We have a template for this use either: {{cn}} or {{citation needed}} if you want to include it in an article. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 22:12, November 3, 2013 (UTC)
