Welcome to Uncyclopedia

Spike the Dog (06b)
Articles are better if they contain pictures. "Thumbnails" like this one contain captions, and funny captions are the best.

Hello, Reverend P. Pennyfeather: Archive 1, and welcome to Uncyclopedia. This is a wiki (a collection of pages that anyone can edit). Words in blue are "links" and can be clicked to take you to another page. This wiki is devoted to comedy. It pretends it is Wikipedia, but we make people laugh, not bore them. If you aren't interested in a fake encyclopedia but in writing fake news stories, we have UnNews, and there are other projects for scripts, lyrics, how-to guides, and so on.

What you can do

You can create an article of your own. For starters, create it under your own name; for example, User:Reverend P. Pennyfeather: Archive 1/Bedbug. (The red instead of blue is a link to a page that doesn't yet exist.) We have a list of articles that need to be created. You can help out without writing articles; just read articles and, if you see an improvement in writing or in comedy, jump in and edit it. In fact, there are ways to help out without writing at all, such as helping us organize stuff, monitoring the activity log for vandals, or even greeting other new users like this.

What you need

To write articles, you need a sense of humor and an ability to write good English. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and you can get help in any area. But everyone needs an ability to work with other people. Decide to be polite, be positive and helpful toward others, and assume others are doing the same toward you.

What to read

Here are some pages that might help you:

For personal help
  • All the administrators are willing to help you, and several Uncyclopedians are willing to adopt you.
  • I will be watching this page for a while and will know if you edit it. Afterward, you can contact me on my own talk page.
  • If you've written an article, we have a review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read it and tell you how to improve it.
How to post to talk pages

Please follow these general rules:

  • Add comments at the end of a talk page so people notice your addition.
  • Start your paragraphs with one or more : characters to indent them and set them off from other people's posts.
  • At the end, type ~~~~ (four tildes), which gets replaced by your user name and the current date and time.
  • Don't delete anyone's messages. In case of any controversy, we depend on an accurate record of what was written. You may disavow your remarks by striking them through like this.

I hope you enjoy it here and write a lot of funny stuff! Spıke ¬ 23:39 15-Feb-13

Worcestershire sauce

Wow! A tour-de-force with many different types of humor. Thanks for the contribution! Needs photos. Cheers! Spıke ¬ 23:39 15-Feb-13

PS--It does not seem to need the parenthetical disambiguation, as we have no other pages on the stuff. Also, we would not capitalize the S in the page name. May I rename it? Spıke ¬ 23:41 15-Feb-13

Yes?

Done, thanks. (See above under "How to post to talk pages".) Spıke ¬ 23:45 15-Feb-13

Sorry! Not too sure how to do pictures, so if you have any in mind, feel free. ~~~~

On how to get pictures, at least of Worcestershire sauce, I do not know. On what to do with them if you have any, go to Special:Upload and follow the instructions. If you poke around, you might find that Uncyclopedia already has photos you can adapt to the task. (The "nowiki" is what I type in the example to make the magic not take effect, and you should omit it so that the magic does take effect.) Spıke ¬ 23:52 15-Feb-13

Cheers. Might have a look for pictures tomorrow, going to bed. ~~< />~~

At the expense of tiring you further: Four tildes, nothing in-between. Give it a try when you return. Good night! Spıke ¬ 23:59 15-Feb-13

Thanks. Have added pictures. Reverend P. Pennyfeather (talk) 13:05, February 16, 2013 (UTC)
Hello Mr. Pennyfeather, and welcome to a site which will become your first home (you get the bunk on the top). Nice article on the sauce. And feel free to be yourself here, there are only three rules and they are written on porous stone. Aleister 13:09 16-2-'13

Pictures, with great captions! I've juggled them a little and changed the section heads to align to our style. Thanks much. And you got your signature to work! Yes, feel free to be yourself, or anyone else but another Aleister. Spıke ¬ 13:16 16-Feb-13

Glad you liked it. Thanks for the nomination. Yes, feel a little daft for not getting something so simple working, but think I've the hang of it now. Reverend P. Pennyfeather (talk) 17:51, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

You have a tendency to take the instructions very literally--though that is often an aid. Spıke ¬ 18:49 16-Feb-13

Yes, it took me a while to get the pictures working because of those sort of issues. Reverend P. Pennyfeather (talk) 18:52, February 16, 2013 (UTC)

Thank You...

...for voting for my article Capitalism: in grammar. Glad to see you like it. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 19:49, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

It was very clever. On an unrelated note, I see you've started up the newspaper again. I'm only a very occasional user, so could you possibly sign me up to it (not really sure how)? Reverend P. Pennyfeather (talk) 19:52, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Sure, thanks for taking an interest. Most of my UnSignpost users are inactive so I'm dying for some active ones. I'll just sign you on and deliver you a copy. Back in a sec. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 19:55, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Here we go:

Enjoy reading. Give me any feedback either here, on my talk page or in the press room (which you can find by clicking on the UnSignpost link). Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 19:58, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Cheers. Reverend P. Pennyfeather (talk) 20:16, April 14, 2013 (UTC)

Hello Sir Reverend

Hello! I do not think I've made your acquaintance, or even met you, before. This is my lucky day, as I see you have offered your service as a proofreader extrordinaire. And I cannot spell or do math or dance on the head of a pin worth a lick. I have one semi-longish page I've worked on for awhile (have taken a break from it for now, but will probably continue to polish it like a faux diamond), and wondered if you could glance over it for me. This would be an honor (seriously, I really honor those who help others, this is often the way of the species. And I offer my services to you as well - although they be minor and corruptible). The page in question can be found here, hiding in this link. It contains a story, then a big "The End" sign, but it continues after that as a postscript. If you deem to take on this assignment, you will live a long and women filled life (guaranteed!). If not, the same! Either way, long life, women filled, yay! Thanks, and good to meet you. (I'm glad we now have a Reverend and a Brother). Aleister 23:02 Either the 16 or 17 of April, the Year of our Fnord '13.

p.s. And if you do take on this task, please don't feel rushed. July is fine. Actually July is a nice month, as they say in the central African nations where everyone sweats profusely for hours at a time during the Summer (and winter too).
I'm certainly willing to have a look, although it may take a short while. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 19:19, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
Much appreciated. Thanks. Remember, July is fine. You will be rewarded on earth and in heaven (but as a Rev you already know that). Aleister 20:18 17-4-'13
Quite all right. I've assumed you prefer American English, and have attempted to resist the urge to 'correct' words because of your unfortunate affliction. Should you have any quibbles, feel free to complain profusely. If I may offer some advice, I'd suggest cutting down the length of your sentences. I didn't want to change the style too much, so left them, but they can on occasion be a little convoluted. On the whole, I thought it was a very fine article, and I didn't even have to change much. Well done! Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:57, April 17, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks a zillion! I just noticed you had edited ita few minutes ago, and luckily I came in and worked on polishing a section after you had been there and not during your editing. This was unexpected, and very beneficial (as you could tell, my spelling was horrible, and you caught like a hundred errors or something). Let me know if I can return the favor (not in proofing, obviously). Some of the sentences could be cut down, while in others I tend to play them out like a prose poem or something. My brain writes the page, and then polishes the good oners for a long time, while I just sit back and read it. Thanks again, and don't do anything I wouldn't do (which means you can do a lot!). Aleister 1:48 18-4-'13
No problem. If you need any more, you know who to bother. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:22, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

Proofreading Service

Continued kudos on providing this useful service, and on even leaving a personalized note and a chocolate on the talk-page bed when you are done. I do hope that the editors of the UnSignpost (that would be ScottPat) do everything they can to publicize your offer. Spıke ¬ 22:34 22-Apr-13

What can I say? It's an involuntary reflex. My dad's an English teacher, my grandmother was a teacher, it's an inherited condition. I just can't stop myself when I see an incorrect apostrophe, split infinitive, incorrect conjugation &c. Help me stop! Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 22:41, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

You poor soul Spıke ¬ 22:44 22-Apr-13

PS--I've added this to my ritual welcome message to new users, though I am greeting fewer users because of that trite message that our webhost has been signing my name to. Spıke ¬ 22:46 22-Apr-13

Thank you. The official page for the Service is a right mess, do you mind if at some point I try to clean it up? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 22:48, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

It just barely tells the person in need of proofreading what to do. Not only do I not mind: (1) This would be meta-work as meticulous as your micro-work; and (2) In view of our current level of activity, you ought to proceed as though you owned it (and even with greater activity, be italic (where Wikipedia says be bold) is one of our slogans. It is thus your call but I don't think that anything other than vanity requires us to have a log of all the pages that have been proofread. Spıke ¬ 23:10 22-Apr-13

Have had a go cleaning things up. It's still not great, but it's marginally better. I agree, have removed the "been proofread" section entirely. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 21:49, April 23, 2013 (UTC)

It looks like I don't even have to write "proofread" on my article and it is already proofread. Thanks alot you are doing a great job. I was sure it was the Belgian President and not Primeminister but I'll take your word for that as I trust you've looked it up or have greater knowledge. Thanks. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 05:40, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

I haven't actually proofread the article, just that one change. I can if you want, though. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 15:54, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

Yes please. Could you give me a short evaluation on the humour of the article as well on my talk page or is that too much to ask, vicar? Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 16:46, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

And the Lord spake unto the Israelites: "Lo! Verily the Comma Brigade shall deliver you from your chains. Woe unto those who resist, for there shall be much wailing and gnashing of teeth" Gospel of Wilde, 16:33. Done! Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:15, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. I'm so prone to making spelling mistakes it's unbelievable. Feel free, if you are ever in need of something to do, to proofread any of my articles (you can find them on my user page). I would appreciate any proofreading changes you make but don't feel obliged to. If you do however then just post a quick summary on my talk page so that I am aware. Thank you. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 05:44, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

PS - Your humour edits fit in beautifully with the article, giving exactly the ideas I wanted to convey. Thanks. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 06:07, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

No problem. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 21:40, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

If you are not to busy reverand then could you possibly proofread my Belgian Mountain Troops article to make sure that I haven't made any spiiling mistakes or dones grammar bad. Thanks. (Yes, I too am a Commander, sir, now). Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 10:24, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

A few spelling mistakes, but overall you done grammar goodly. Well done on your feature. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 22:26, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. Romartus touched up EU a bit as well so now it looks even better. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 05:56, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

HowTo:Walk on Saturn without falling over

Sorry to trouble you again but could you proofread this article please thanks. Leave a quick summary on the talk page and tell me how good the humour is if you could please. On a side note, lots of my articles are on Uncyclopedia:Pee Review if you'd ever like to review one of mine. Cheers. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 11:13, April 28, 2013 (UTC)

Done. See your talk page for comments. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 19:58, April 29, 2013 (UTC)

Lord Sutch and Emu War

You wouldn't mind spellchecking these two would you? Only if you've got time of course. Not urgent. Thanks. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose UnS CUN VFH and Bar (talk) 15:27 19, April 2014

I'll get round to it when I've a little more time. I've quite a few important exams coming up, so won't have too much time to spare. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 17:07, May 3, 2013 (UTC)

That's ok. Good luck in your exams! Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose UnS CUN VFH and Bar (talk) 15:27 19, April 2014

Ukraine

Please could you proofread this article as well.

The other contributor is Russian so there may be horrific grammar mistakes. Please do not change any names (even if you think they are wrong) or any of the humour. However when you make the summary please tell me of anything you would liked to have changed with the humour. Thanks.
