edit 'Ello matey

If you need to leave a page which you haven't finished - such as ‎Worst 100 Rejected Harry Potter Novels - make sure you add the following code: {{construction}}. This will prevent it from being deleted for a short while, allowing you time to return to and complete it. I've added it to your article, so it'll be fine for a week. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 10:05, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

edit Another one?

Now go play in traffic.

Blackadder awaits you... ;) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:07, Mar 31

So what angle do you think the Blackadder article could take? I loved the FBI stance the Baldrick one took - I'd love to do something similar for Edmund, but I'm a bit dry. And I can't think of an angle. --Mykell 23:36, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I nearly missed your comment there! You do like keeping things in the right place! You can use my talk page if you wish. I'm less likely to miss it then... I made a suggestion on the Young Ones Page... Maybe you could do something similar here. Suggest that they are a gang of time travellers who travel through time messing up history? I know that's kinda what one of the episodes was though so that might not be ideal. Doing parody of parody is REALLY hard... As you are noticing ;-) It's hard to poke fun at a funny thing without copying it. Baldrick was right on the edge really. Most of the humour in that was actually from lines from the show. You are meant to write new material really on here... I will have a think, and let you know if I can come up with a concept... I'm thinking it might work if you focused on one particular series (your favourite I guess) and refer to the other times as distant relatives or such. The concept is always the hardest part of a new article to get right... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:46, Apr 1
Ahhh, brain attack! What if Edmund Blackadder was portrayed as... a Timelord? The one that escaped the Dalek wars? Or is that insane and unfunny? --Mykell 00:03, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Anything can be made funny if you have the talent to do it. This type of subject is just harder than most. I do like the idea a mixing things up. You could blend in Mr Bean also. IMO Mr Bean sux, so maybe he is the evil time-lord following Blackadder through history trying to spoil his reputation? WHY DID YOU DO IT ROWAN! Also, blend in the stuff which Tony Robinson does for "Time Team" ;) Add an appearance from a bit of A Bit of Fry and Laurie maybe also? I think you could even blend the young ones into it as many of the people involved in both were the same. You could keep with the Blackadder characters, but have all the other roles the actors have been part of involved somehow maybe? This article sir... Must be a masterpiece. This will be your first featured article if you get it right. ;) Blackadder needs to be an Uncyc FA... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 00:13, Apr 2
Blackadder is looking good. Can't wait to read it when it's finished - that goes for any future articles you write, too. :-) Rabbi Techno Icons-flag-gb kvetch Icon rabbi Contribs Foxicon FOXES 16:05, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! :) I'm gonna get it finished today all being well. There's a lot of stuff in my head that I want to get down for it, but... damnit! I'm hungry! :p --Mykell 16:06, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

edit Old Chit

Gah to you and these good ideas that I want to work on badly. If I had a social life I'd be mad at you! --Mykell 19:13, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Draw the curtains. Put tape over the door bell. Turn off all your clocks and staple yourself to the computer. Welcome to being an Uncyc addict.  :P MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:17, Mar 31
I'm not so sure about stapling myself to the computer (such a waste of staples! I need them all so that I can press the stapler up against unsuspecting people's heads and them bang my fist against it! :D) but could always add a drawing pin to the tape over the doorbell to compensate? --Mykell 19:19, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Sounds like a plan. A good friend of mine on here Under user is a big fan of the Young Ones. Maybe you could pop by his page and mention that you are working on this? He might be interested in contributing. Tell him I sent ya. Actually probably best to not mention me, I still have not returned his lawn mower... Anyway, seriously. Pop over to his page and say hi. He's a really cool guy. If you are reading this UU. You are an asshole and I meant nothing I said. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 19:24, Mar 31
(Move log); 20:29 . . MrN9000 (Talk | contribs | block) moved The Young Ones to The Young Ones (TV series) (May as well keep it like Wikipedia)

I did the old switcheroo on ya. May as well keep it like Wikipedia. Also... You are just a little bit to good at all this you know... How you noticed that link on UU's page to put your comment in the right place... Very clever sir. You clearly know your wikis... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:31, Mar 31

My secret will live with me 'til the grave! By the way, was it you who did the Baldrick article? I nearly lost an eyeball through laughing so much at that one! --Mykell 20:35, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
Well. Hmm. *eyes Mykell up and down very closely* You do look strangely familiar... Na, can't be... I did not write Baldrick but I did the Pee Review, and helped out a bit editing it. I would explain about Pee Review to you, but something tells me you already know about that... :P If you are a soc (that's fine) just don't vote on the same thing twice or contribute to any discussions that your other account does (not that you would know what I'm talking about). Obviously. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 20:53, Mar 31
Haha! Honestly, I have no idea where you're going with that. I've got no idea what sockpuppets are (even after reading that accursed article) or anything down that route. The only time I've edited a wikipedia page was to whore my subject-related website! :P Perhaps if I said I was English... would that calm the fears? :P I've just been on here for a while, practiced making a few articles with Ken Barlow and Mike Baldwin and gone from there. The world's my toystore! And I've no idea what Pee Review is - sounds like getting test results back at the doctors. --Mykell 21:11, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
UN:PEE... Check it out. If you write something and you want someone to take a closer look at it (sometimes they are more helpful than other times depending on who you manage to get to review it) Pee Review can be very useful. You can also do reviews as well if you wish... We have a set of guidelines for reviewing and such, it's all linked from the page... You live in England eh? I would never have guessed! I live in St Albans myself... There are quite a lot of people from the UK on here actually. It's great to have another Brit who knows their stuff.
Oh, we also have this thing. If you like I would be more than happy to adopt you. Don't worry, it's nothing to do with prison showers or picking up the soap. Well, mostly not anyway. It's really just a thing which means that you can hassle the hell out of me on my talk page should you ever need assistance with anything, and there is nothing I can do about it. Just say the word, and I will fill out the paper work... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 21:26, Mar 31
Oim down in fookin' ole' Sou' West of the country moi lover! Ooh arr... and all that stereotypical accent shit! If I ever need help with something I'll let you know :)... by the way, italicising the word' adopt' made it slightly sinister looking... I'd better call the Daily Mail... :p --Mykell 21:31, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

edit Blackadder is coming on great!

It's going to need a lot of attention though. It's the finer points of detail which make the difference. I think it's a bit "wordy" here and there, and can probably be made more concise without spoiling the effect... Anyway... Did I mention that we also don't have Spitting Image or Jeeves and Wooster? *taps foot impatiently...* Na, you concentrate on Blackadder for a while longer if I were you... Personally I find it useful to have a few articles on the go which I'm working on. That way you don't get stuck on something and often have fresh ideas when you come back to it again. Did I mention that I'm actually from Bristol, and have a house there? I may be your next-door neighbour you know! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:09, Apr 2

this was one of the funniest edits I have seen for a long time. Seriously, I still have a huge smile on my face. You are just too good to be true! MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:13, Apr 2
Luckily I've never seen Jeeves and Wooster, and my only memory of Spitting Image is of some sketch involving Michael Jackson. My original plan with the Blackadder article was to have it like a conspiracy page detailing times in history where he's been spotted (hence the 'evidence' images. Made 'em myself. Nifty, eh!) but then I thought that if I did that then I couldn't go down the routes of companions or enemies or whathaveyou. It'll need a re-write, maybe - might need some good humour injected into the upper half. Still, damned hard work! :P Oh, I'm further south than Bristol. Bristol's fuckin' Northern to me! PS Thanks for the comment about the Ian Fleming edit - always a confidence boost! :D --Mykell 23:17, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
Considering you taste in humour I highly recommend that you get hold of some Jeeves and Wooster DVD's ;) It's got both Stephen Fry as Jeeves & Hugh Laurie as Wooster. It's set around 1920 to 1930s. Considering that, they should probably feature (or be referenced) in the Blackadder article... Oh, I really hope you do something with Time Team in Blackadder also (I'm sure you know the show) considering the time travel aspect and all... Tony Robinson lives in Bristol ya know. About 2 miles from my house actually. Some of the other guys in the show are also from Bristol... I saw the image you chopped. Very nice sir. You can do images also??? Is there no end to this persons talent? MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:27, Apr 2
I can do a bit of photoshop. Nothing amazing though (as you can undoubtedly see). I'm not too sure if J+W would be up my street but if I ever catch it on Sky I'll give it a watch. I'll think of a way to work Time Team in, maybe a TT section where they guys go to Aldwick Castle and discover the wood art thing of BA1. Got to have Tony discovering that he's a descendant of Baldrick, and maybe Mick discovering that he's descended from a poodle. --Mykell 23:30, 2 April 2009 (UTC)

If you are not an old uncyc user who has created a new account because they want a new ID on here (that's what a sockpuppet is, or more when it's used in a dishonest way) then you are the best new user I have seen on here for a while. That my friend is a serious complement. I also believe you that you are not a sock. That's just my way of paying a complement. I'm not very good at them I know. It's a shame that you made a few edits a while back before you started to bombard us with stuff as you would probably have won NotM our award for best new user. Unfortunately your account is too old, but we have plenty of other pointless templates which you can win the right to sport on your userpage. I'm hoping the first will be to get Blackadder featured on the front page... We choose which articles to "FA" by voting on them. Anyone can vote (or even nominate to be voted on). It all happens at the VFH page. It's a cruel and Godless place over there I assure you... Many people have seen their best efforts shot down in flames. I currently have this over there being crucified... Pop over to VFH and take a look around sometime you get the chance. That's where the real pain is. ;) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:44, Apr 2
Bugger. Oh well. Is there no way to wave that proverbial Admin wand and make shit happen? Damnit! What's the point of having power if you don't abuse it every now and then? Only joking, obviously... *ahem*. If there's anything you can think of that could be added to Slackie's page like adversaries or companions put a bit in - your last bit on the Mr. Bean section inspired me to add the part about Ian Fleming. So it's indirectly your fault! --Mykell 23:53, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
PS. You're a bastard for doing that! :p --Mykell 11:25, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
*Bows* Well, I had to be the first to get my name on your ban log. Sorry to ban ya for so long, the custom is to ban for only 1 min, but I was worried you might miss it :-) Come on, admit it... Just for a second your heart stopped :) HeHe... I remember my first ban with great fondness... While you are working on Blackadder, I recommend that you submit something to UN:PEE. It normally takes a while to get something back from it. The ideal scenario would be if you could trick Under user into reviewing The Young ones for you. UU is probably the best reviewer on the site, and as I said before he's a huge Young Ones fan so would be the perfect person to review it... For your reference, here are a few other links related to how the site works and such...
UN:BP - Ban Patrol. This is where users can nominate other users for bans. Serious stuff only there. You could ask me in person, but I'm not always around and all the other admins monitor that page very closely.
VFD - Vote for deletion. Any user can nominate a page which they find if they think it's so terrible it's not worth keeping. Other users will then vote...
QVFD = Quick Vote for deletion. Like the above, but only for newly created pages (within a week). Also, if you created a page yourself (and it's not really been edited by anyone else) you can use QVFD to ask for it to be deleted if you leave a comment saying "author request".
BP, VFD, and QVFD are pretty much the only "serious" pages on this site. You can get away with most things, but messing around with those is highly un-advised.
Some other places of interest related to pictures are UN:PIC, Reefer Desk and VFP. There are obviously instructions on the various pages telling you what is going on.
Our "main" awards are WotM (the big one) NotM and UotM. There are lots of others which are linked from the template at the bottom of those pages. There are also numerious other "awards" of various levels of seriousness, but it's really the ones linked for that template which people seriously compete for. What could a person desire more than to have one of those on their talk page! People die for them. People murder their mothers, sleep with their uncles, and take their dogs for walks on a regular basis just to win those I assure ya... Oh, some people record audio for their articles also...
As for Blackadder I will add some content at some point. I think you are getting to the point when you need to start considering which bits of the article are good, and which not so good... Don't be scared to use a hatchet to trim it back if you think it needs it. In the edits I did to Blackadder recently I was kinda trying to demonstrate about making the text shorter, but keeping the funny in place. It's all about the giggles per word ratio don't forget... I don't know if you actually have or not yet (it was months until I bothered to) but HTBFANJS is actually a dam useful read. I sometimes go back and read it again from time to time as it inspires ideas. Also... You Wikipeida user you... At Uncyc we don't have the "You must only use thumbs for anything other than the main picture rule" thing. Personally I almost always use 250px for most of my images. Just don't be scared to do whatever makes the page look better. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:07, Apr 3
I love how the word Wikipedia is being used as a term of insult around here. I'm thumbbing the images mainly so that they're there and do what they're meant to, but don't mess around with the format and knock everything out of the way. It's hard trying to write enough to wrap around an image so that the next title isn't indented like some kind of accident victim. And, yes, my heart did stop for a brief second. I thought Ken Barlow had complained about his article or something. --Mykell 12:17, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Na, truth is that most users here don't really hate wikipedia. Our nemesis' are elsewhere... The "problem" with Wikipedia is that their NPOV and RS policies pretend that there is such a thing as fact when obviously there is only actually opinion. What is a reliable source again? Sometime to do with who owns the newspaper or website if I remember... The cool thing about Uncyc is that POV is allowed. We have many articles which actually express very important ideals and present real information in a way which Wikipedia would not allow because we allow different people with different views to express themselves through the medium of humour. We allow racism, sexism, and just about any "ism" you care to name if it's funny enough to enough people. In many ways that makes us more factual and real that Wikipedia who only really present the views of what a controlling group of regulars users allow. Also, our article on Baldrick is far better than theirs. :-) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:47, Apr 3
Damned straight! The first time I saw the Baldrick page I collapsed in peroxyms of laughter. It's that photo they used of him! They couldn't have picked a better one! --Mykell 12:55, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
PS - How do you edit your sig to have those little pictures?
Unlike the Village Pump we have UN:VD VD? No? Ok then... Anyway... There is a FAQ there in the help section which you might want to read at some point. However, that's obviously boring, so here is the actual link you need to make a sig: User:Todd_Lyons/faq#Signature. Rather than signing with ~~~~ I use the far more streamlined ~~~ due to the fact that I have:
{{subst:nosubst|User:MrN9000/sig}} <small><small>{{subst:CURRENTTIME}}, {{subst:CURRENTMONTHABBREV}} {{subst:CURRENTDAY}}</small></small>
In my preferences. My sig is is here. Obviously the thing to do is find someone who has a sig similar to what you want and plagiarize theirs. Pop over to the Dump, and have a wander around and see who has a sig you fancy plagiarising. The conversation over there can be humours sometimes. Forum:BHOP is where the absolute gibberish takes place, but the Dump is meant to be about actual things related to the site. I recommend you create your sig at User:Mykell/sig. I got the idea for the breasts from the Blackadder episode where they have the drinking party. I plan to upgrade to golden breasts at some point, but I only have MS Paint here, and I'm a lazy arse. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 13:16, Apr 3
I have made you a small golden breasts icon for your signature. Is it okay to upload it to Uncyc or should it be uploaded elsewhere? --Mykell 19:52, 3 April 2009 (UTC)
Lol. Of course it's OK to upload it! I look forward to getting my hands on them So to speak... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 22:42, Apr 3
Always good to make sure... Goldboobs By Mykell - Icons-flag-gb - Chat To Meh
Very suitable. Thank you very much! I will upgrade immediately! Looks like you get the hang of your sig also. I think you should have a link to your talk page from your sig though. That makes things a lot quicker for people. It's also handy to have a link to your contributions also... Neither of those are "requirements" whatever that means, it just makes things easier for people... MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 23:13, Apr 3
I got all my contribs up on my userpage thingy - easier to follow than that smelly standard contribs thing. I'll add a link to the chat page tho. By Mykell - Icons-flag-gb - Chat To Meh

edit Hea dude

Sorry, I have not been around. Some IRL stuff going on and such. I had to move User:Mykell/Agadoo (the Musical) to your user space for ya as the WIP expired. Hopefully I will be around more soon. Enjoy. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 22:27, Apr 21

edit Hello

Really enjoyed the Swiss Toni article. You should think about putting it up for pee review. If your interested, I have a list of missing British television series if your ever looking for more ideas. MadMax 18:46, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Also have you thought about writing another character-based article? Maybe something along the lines of Al Murray's "Pub Landlord" character or perhaps something more recent like Bernard Black, Frank Gallagher or Saxondale ? There was an interesting idea at Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles for an article written by Brian Potter (Phoenix Nights). I think it was supposed to be written as an ad for the Phoenix Club which had been rejected on Wikipedia as a promotional article. MadMax 00:57, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
