edit I saw you were looking for someone to proofread

/Correct grammar, etc. I would be your man. As a Grammar Nazi, I can assure you the utmost correctness in all regards of proper English. Deal? HGA (Der_Führerbunker--Wehrmacht Factories) Icons-flag-nazi221:38 11 November 2012

That's alright, as you read my first language isn't English so that would be great. You can start with the articles which I have uploaded, there are 4 of them, of which 'Present' is already proofread, maybe you can proofread 'Quiz', 'Istockphoto' or 'Zizek'. Thanks in regard. :) Reality2 (talk) 21:48, November 12, 2012 (UTC)

edit UnNews:UK animal tests plan aborted

I have done some work on this but it needs to lose the random quotes in my view. You can paraphrase comments in the main body of a paragraph as an alternative. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:06, February 11, 2014 (UTC)

I reply at Talk:SpongeBob SquarePants that the new initial quotations should not stay, and explain why.

Separately, use photos sparingly, vary right and left, and put them before a paragraph, pressing Enter after the ]]. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 23:06 6-Oct-14

PS--Press Preview to see how your edit will look, then keep editing. Press Save only when you reach a major stopping point. You can do the same thing as before, but register fewer official edits that someone has to look at. Spıke Ѧ 23:07 6-Oct-14

edit God's deleted contributions

You edited this article with Change Summary, "I don't really get why nobody has made a reference to Uncyclopedia." It is because writing about ourselves, while amusing to ourselves, is not going to be amusing to anyone else. This is why we call it Navelism (as in gazing-at-one's-navel).

Separately, as I replied to you yesterday, any article that is a Featured Article is essentially done. It is allowed to bring it up-to-date, such as removing red-links as some of the other articles it references go out of existence. It is not allowed to take it in new directions, especially the less-funny. Spıke Ѧ 20:19 7-Oct-14

What I use is [1] and I really like this kind of humor, you obviously don't, but could you please say: 'I find this less funny' instead of claiming that I just have very bad humor. At the Dutch uncyclopedia my contributions were appreciated a lot. Either Dutch-speaking people have no sense of humor according to you, or it is just the Anglo-Saxon arrogance. The more I 'm active at the internet, the more I dislike Anglo-Saxons. Trying to get rid of the Welsh and Irish languages, and now trying to step on the taste of humour of non Anglo-saxons.

Spike's point is that self-referential humour may not register with someone who is unfamiliar with Uncyclopedia. His other point is that featured articles are considered 'finished' and should generally not be changed in any major way. He did not actually say that your humour was bad (though he may have implied it). Nothing in his statement has any relation to your comments about Anglo-Saxon collective arrogance, and since he's an American, not an Englishman, I seriously doubt the validity of lumping him in with the people who are trying to squish Welsh and Irish. I understand that you're upset about your additions being reverted, but you would have done better to assume that he meant what he said. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 21:07 7 October 2014
Wyt ti'n byw yng Nghymru? Dw i'n dysgu Cymraeg. (I just say this because of your username, otherwise ignore it)
You speak and explain very well. I have had some bad experiences at some other Wikis too with serious edits (these were not uncyclopedias) being reverted, that's maybe why I reacted in this way. Reality2 (talk) 21:44, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think it is "the" Anglo-Saxon arrogance to assert that our reader is not going to be amused at reading what Uncyclopedians think about being Uncyclopedians. Anglo-Saxons might dislike navelism more than people from other linguistic cultures. If that is true, then you might value my insight into it as an Anglo-Saxon, or at least refrain from observing how you are growing to dislike people like me. But I think inside jokes are equally unfunny, worldwide, to readers who are not on the inside. You are saying less about different cultures than simply that you prefer to amuse yourself over amusing the reader. Spıke Ѧ 21:53 7-Oct-14

We agree that someone not known with the subject won't appreciate inside jokes. But visitors of Uncyclopedia, I assume, will actually have some knowledge about the website I supposed, but you are right that some users might be completely unknown with the concept when they visit the website.
I 'm sorry about the Anglo-Saxon thing, but I read some horrible articles from Anglo-Saxons about how they think the Welsh language should disappear.

Nac ydw, dwi'm yn byw yng Nghymru. I just learnt Welsh for fun, really. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 22:31 7 October 2014
