I'm barely here now.                               Puppy's talk page11:15 20 Apr 2013

Don't go. I only know of you through a pee review that you once did for me but that was enough to let me see that you are a great Uncyclopedian. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 16:50, April 23, 2013 (UTC)
I'm working 50+ hours a week at the moment. I'm just exhausted.                               Puppy's talk page09:25 23 Apr 2013
But do you remember when Uncyclopedia was comic relief from work?! Spıke ¬ 21:32 23-Apr-13
I started editing here when I was unemployed, and for the last few years I've mainly been a phone jockey - thereby having a low work load and constant access to Internet at work. I'm back in management, so have to focus creative energy to get paid. I'll probably be back here regularly at some stage, but just not right now.                               Puppy's talk page01:35 24 Apr 2013

Template:Oh Dear

Thanks for editing this so that it gives a signature. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:41, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

I just undid it. I prefer a three tilde sig - the date stamp is incorporated into my signature. There's no easy way to have it change between three and four tildes for user preference though.                               Puppy's talk page07:43 06 May 2013 <--three tilde

That's fine then. Thanks for your help though. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:45, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

You could create a template of {{OD}} which would consist of the text of:
{{<includeonly>subst:</includeonly>Oh Dear}}

which, if my wiki-fu is correct, give you the result you are after. It's been a while since I played with subst'ing and noincludes/includeonlys in templates though, so I'm not promising it'll be perfect.                               Puppy's talk page07:51 06 May 2013
Okay - it has been done and tested.                               Puppy's talk page07:54 06 May 2013

Ahhhh! Edit-conflict. I hate them. Anyway my point I was going to make is invalid now as you have already changed it. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:56, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

I've protected this page, not as any commentary on your experimentation, but because any actual vandalism by others would instantly appear on thousands of pages of newbies least likely to deal with it calmly. Spıke ¬ 09:27 6-May-13
This should always be {{subst:OD}} anyway. Given the text just comes from {{Oh Dear}} that'd probably be better off with better protection.                               Puppy's talk page09:51 06 May 2013


I am glad you are taking a look at this. I have not been to the Wikipedia article on it--I visited Conservapedia itself, once, and found it more didactic than conservative--but the article strikes me as a total (featured) rant, about everything from being, yuck!, conservative, to being not conservative enough, to not banning people for the right durations, with vanity comparable to Poptropica and Red Hot Pawn when we encountered them. Spıke ¬ 00:21 7-May-13

I have a dislike of anything Schafly related. Conservapedia is the product of the youngest(?) Schafly, Andrew. Because of my personal dislike of the site I'm not too involved in that article, as I would become ranty myself. The core of this article was a parody of The “ranty” aspect in that was taken as a parody of the source, as was the “too left leaning” concept. It could be stripped back to the original concept, as the concept has become muddled over time, but as I mentioned before, I may not be impartial enough to do this well.                               Puppy's talk page12:32 07 May 2013

I have no such personal dislike, but I always hate parodying ranters by exaggerating the rantiness; it usually doesn't work, sometimes doesn't come across as parody at all, and the reader wonders what the writer's agenda really is: create comedy or destroy his adversary with the adversary's own words. I could eventually do it right, but this is a FA (gawd!) and there are bigger fish to fry. Spıke ¬ 00:43 7-May-13

Revert to featured version? We could probably improve it over time, but as an FA it means at that time it was considered one of our finest. (And I like the FA version myself.)                               Puppy's talk page12:54 07 May 2013

Compared to the FA, the current version has some small corrections, and some helpful large deletions, including my own of today. I would delete the external links as well: one to Conservapedia and another advocating a "better" conservative website. Spıke ¬ 01:13 7-May-13

Oddly the Conservapedia page on Uncyclopedia links to the fork. Given how precious Conservapedia are about anyone not regular editing pages there I'm surprised that this edit got through.                               Puppy's talk page11:00 07 May 2013

Fifty shades of grey

I just ran across your page Fifty shades of grey. Very creative (I was gone for most of 2012 and missed the feature). There is a vote on the newest content warning page, for a new content warning. Please have a look. Hope all has been well, and profitable, and then some extra things too. Aleister 1:45 9-5-'13
