edit Welcome!

Hello, Rainchild, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Rainchild/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If the current colonization doesn't suit your fancy, then browse our rewrite and idea categories. We have lots of articles just sitting around for someone to improve, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. Again, welcome!  ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 09:31, February 3, 2012 (UTC)

edit Your happy monkey topic


Your topic my dear Rainchild is: Saturday (day of the week).

  1. Write the article on your namespace
  2. I'll be judging the articles based on creativity, originality and cleverness.
  3. Good luck, you have until tomorrow night (23.59 UTC, 6:59PM ET) to finish.

(happy monkey just ate your shoe laces and liked them too much)

edit Happy monkey

Hey Rainchild how is it going? Nice start to your article. I've formatted your article a little bit, as this is your first contest and you ended up with a rather challenging topic to say the least. I've added a generic image and put some links into the article. If you can...try to have a link in at least each paragraph. I find it best to link them to good and or funny articles.

I'm going to give you an extra 6 hours or so to format your article (add images and links to your page so that you get the fair judging that you should get).

You should probably upload some images here and replace the name of the file I put in the code on your article page, and put a clever caption there. Id recommend getting two or three relevant images. Remember, the image doesn't have to illustrate the action of the article, but could also symbolise it, make fun of it, make the article absurd...etc.

[] is a great place to search for images. Donwload the image, upload it here and your article will be spiffy in no time.

Feel free to make more of what I've added, remove what I added or move around what I added, I won't be the least bit offended if you reverse all of my edits, and you should probably change my edits to reflect how you see your article in terms of images links if you don't like them.

Have fun. Im judging based on creativity, cleverness and originality, and I already see a lot of that. Remeber, try to be funny and not just goofy, if you write a joke thats expected or thats been done a lot or high school humour stuff, thats fine, thats great, but find a clever way to add it, make a meaningful change to it. I'm sure youll do great.

edit It's Saturday, Saturday, gotta get down on Saturday

But which seat can I take??? lol Thanks for writing in the competition, I just judged your article and it is awesome! If you had some good pics in there and if it had been a little longer, you were shooting for a 9/10! I see great funniness potential in you, I hope you stick around, and by order of the cabal you have been nominated for Noob of the Month! Congrats and if you have any question or just want to stalk me, don't be shy! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 17:28, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

edit Thanks and Noobie Questions

Many thanks to Matt and Shabidoo for their helpful words. (I'm not kidding.) Alas, I don't know a) how to add an image to an article and b) where to find images that are guaranteed out of copyright. Am thinking about writing an article called "Moose Nasal Mucous: The New Caviar." Actually, I'm not. I'll try to write something more tasteful, honest!

Will try to keep up.

And if you add a caption

Others will come by to answer your questions better. Pics are easy to add, just follow the code that you see when you edit. Practice with alternating between "thumb" and "frame". If you want it on the left you put a left on it, in the center add center, but if you want it on the right nothing is needed, it goes there automatically as long as you have a thumb or frame writeen in. Copyright doesn't make a difference here, satirical fair use covers that unless someone holding the copyright complains loudly enough. Pics can be found in most categories, and categories that say Image have lots more. Such as this or this. Pics can also be found on "Special Pages" go to "Unused pics" or something like that. 'nuff data for now, but practice makes purefect. Aleister 19:25 16-2-'12
p.s. Then there's this place for other free images.
Yep, click on "Upload file" on the left of the screen, then select a pic you have in your computer, the pic will be uploaded here. Then just go to any article that has a pic in it and copy what you see when you are on the screen were you "edit" (write), as you can see right here with the pic on the left. I hope that helps :D, the best way to learn how to do something is to find an article that has what you want to do in it, then copy it for your own article. Gotta go punch the fuck out of a mammoth, later! Snowflake mini Mattsnow 00:30, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
