"I have awaited this - the day you would come..."
Welcome to the Uncyclopedia!
Cat the Colourful Cat Oh, hello, RockoRocks, nice that you decided to make an account into... umm... there, this place...

Umm... Anyways, we're proud of you for making such a wise decicion. We are (and we're going to be) also thankful because of your contributions, but in any case, please read the text below so you won't end up too quickly.

Stop laughing.

When you are in conversation with other Hungry Spirits of Uncyclopedia, please remember to sing sign your name with ~~~~, or press the (Button sig) button. It's important to know who talks and when someone talks. If you don't, you'll feel the consequences.

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:RockoRocks/Article about stuff) so you may 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 slap a construction template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

Well, of course, we here at Uncyclopedia have lots of action and games, so you wouldn't get bored. Often articles will require proofreading, among other fix ups, and we could always use more reviewers, and for the more artistic of folks, there's the option of creating images to aid articles that need more images and making them prettier, for instance. Uncyclopedia also sometimes has big competitions, like PLS and others.

If you're still feeling uneasy, come out of the closet and ask from me, admins, IRC, Village Dump or then go and ask from Lyrithya. She knows everything. Really. And don't forget that you can be always adopted in Adopt-a-Noob program, the best adoption program in the world.

So, again, welcome!

Jeroen overeem

Hello, it is me, Cat, the one who just welcomed you. It seems you put the article of Jeroen overeem into VFD few moments ago, and today I'm here to tell you about the wonders of QVFD. QVFD is a place where worthy craps like Jeroen overeem are put once immediatly once they are born. QVFD is a plce for much crappier pages than the ones which get to VFD, where an admin check the article and deltes it immediatly without any voting if it is too crappy. By crappy articles I mean pages like Jeroen overeem which are too short/vanity/cyberbullying/in another language/just simply crappy. From now on, if you see an article thaty matches one of these examples, put it on QVFD, not VFD. Thank you. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 18:40, 23 December, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, and also, I'd like to tell you another thing about QVFD. Go into your preferences, to the 'Gadgets'-section, scroll down to the 'Maintance Gadgets', and there should be a button to allow the QVFD-gadget for your use. With that, you can put crappy pages to QVFD without copying and pasting the name all around. And thank you from your recent contributions! Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 18:45, 23 December, 2012 (UTC)
Copied from my talkpage:
'I can do that (Did it, thanks from telling me). I remember that you had to do a certain number of edits before you were autoconfirmed (10-20 I'm not so sure). Do something useful and cool and soon you should be autoconfirmed. Also, please sign yourself with the four ~'s so I know who's talking.
So there you go. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 19:00, 23 December, 2012 (UTC)


Don't leave gibberish stubs everywhere Rockorocks. You only receive a warning as you have made an account and I am humane and merciful Admin. Others of my college will look at this differently. So..take heed. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:53, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

I reverted all your edits, messing around with templates and other such stuff. I read in your user page you want to be constructive..well you haven't made a good start. Anymore nonsense and it will be a ban. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:07, December 23, 2012 (UTC)

Candy Cane

Thank you very much from the candy cane! Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 19:25, 25 December, 2012 (UTC)

No problem--RockoRocks (talk) 19:25, December 25, 2012 (UTC)


Rocko, your addition of this template to several articles does nothing but introduce clutter. If everyone with such an oddball notion of an attribute did so, the article would quickly become unreadable. A hard-to-read article might be absurd, but it doesn't get funnier by making it even harder to read; and our articles should not be hard to read in the first place, the goal being amusing the reader, not amusing you. Cheers. Spıke Ѧ 19:32 25-Dec-12

I have removed the template sorry --RockoRocks (talk) 19:38, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Rocko. Why don't you try your hand at creating a new, funny article? There is a list at Uncyclopedia:Requested articles. Spıke Ѧ 19:43 25-Dec-12

Well, to be honest i'm happy i'm not blocked or such because recently i've been making some bad edits but i won't do that anymore because i now know what is stupid and what is funny. Contact me if i screw up again or something. Also i'll try to make some of the Requested Articles. Who knows, maybe i can write something really funny. It's just that i don't really have any good ideas. And no, drugs don't help me get ideas.

--RockoRocks (talk) 19:47, December 25, 2012 (UTC)

I can't block anyone, and there is no deadline to write anything. The key is to understand how you are going to make a given article funny. I wouldn't write until you are sure you have such a concept. Or, you could start an article in your own userspace, such as User:RockoRocks/Defibrillator and hope that you'll see a plan after you get started. PS--Please reply here instead of my talk page, so the whole conversation is in the same place. Spıke Ѧ 19:52 25-Dec-12

Seriously, write something. The first three articles I wrote were deleted. That was because they were shit. And also because I didn't know you could write stuff in your own USER name, and then develop them a bit before moving them into the mainspace. Either that, or find the list of articles in need of help and just a few bits - no one could object to that. Also, thanks for the vote--Sog1970 (talk) 21:17, December 25, 2012 (UTC)
SEarch for "Category:Articles to be expanded" and add to one of the articles. They're all slated as being to short and they'll only get deleted if you don't improve them. And if you make them worse they'll just get deleted anyway or reverted to how they were before. the sooner you start writing bullshit the better. The world needs more BS--Sog1970 (talk) 21:24, December 25, 2012 (UTC)


Bizzeebeaver already answered you in my talkpage. You have to get 'autoconfirmed' (stick with us few days and you'll be that.) to edit the page. Be patient and shall be rewarded. Or cursed. I actually don't know which one is worse... Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 18:38, 27 December, 2012 (UTC)

Your mom

(The article, that is.) I'm going to revert you on this. If you want to add a picture, okay, but don't just stack them up at the start of the article. Separately, get a dictionary, try to find "renderation," and you will find the word you are looking for. Cheers. Spıke Ѧ 21:42 28-Jan-13


Reminder: Whenever you vote, adjust the relevant count. Or as I say, "What am I, your mother???" Thanks. Spıke Ѧ 21:06 11-Feb-13

Glasses on VFD

Thank you for your supporting vote. But I think you may be confused. The version of Glasses you read is not the one the Chief read when he listed it on VFD, but the version after I fixed it. (See Saved. in the vote just above yours.) Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 18:00 14-Feb-13

Winx Club on VFD

Thank you for your vote and for your supporting information. The article and the four photos (some of them hastily "censored" in the recent drive from our web host) are now deleted. But please read my note to you at VFD (It's been archived here), on tips to specify such files that will make my job easier in the future. Thanks! Spıke Ѧ 22:41 18-Feb-13

Good patrol work

Everything you've done today has cleaned up the site. Only, note that a vanity article and indeed any really awful article less than a week old is not VFD bait but should be taken direct to QVFD. At worst, I'd decline the request but move it into the user's own userspace to see if he can make it good. Spıke Ѧ 00:27 6-May-13

Thank you very much. In the past I often screwed up things, I was afraid for a moment I was going to do it again. --RockoRocks (talk) 05:41, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you

For voting for me on Noob of the Month/Moment. I haven't met you before and I'm always glad to see other users on Uncyclopedia. I also run UnSignpost and are desperate for some UnSignpost articles. If you have any ideas or want to write an article please send it to the press room. Nice signature too. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:15, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

PS - Thanks for your help sorting out VFD. Have you written any articles? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:17, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

I haven't written any articles I think. I'm always afraid they'll get deleted --RockoRocks TALK Click here to see my vandalizements contribs 08:18, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Don't be afraid they will be deleted. Learn how to be funny using the beginner's guides (I know you are not a beginner) and write one. You can do a collaboration with me if you want. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:22, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for contributing to Club Penguin although keep your writing encyclopedic-like to give the parody impression. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:26, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Rocko, anything you start in your own userspace, such as User:RockoRocks/Rutabaga, will not be deleted because of either incompleteness or abject crappiness, and you can take all the time you want. If in doubt about how crappy it is, ask either of us or the Uncyclopedian of your choice to look it over, or submit it to a formal Pee Review. But Scott has the nub of it, above: Make it look like an encyclopedia article but be funny throughout, and keep ego out of it (such as any focus on you as the storyteller). Our How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid is not for the "stupid" but has lots of tips on comedy moves, also on techniques that seem funny but that have just been used once too often.
You won't get in trouble for any mistakes made in good faith. I hope to administer immediate trouble for anything done in bad faith. I had a harsh Change Summary for you recently, undoing your prank edit with {{USERNAME}}. The point of writing here is to make others laugh, not make others feel uncomfortable that they personally have done something bannable when they haven't.
Now, one thing you need to do: Edit this section and look at how much code your signature dumps onto every page you sign, versus the signatures of Scott and me. All that code needs to be inside a page; then, you can edit the page and have the edits appear on every page you've ever signed. I last tried teaching someone (kicking and screaming) how to do this right at User talk:Denza252. See if those instructions are clear enough for you to follow; otherwise, ask one of us for more help. Spıke Ѧ 09:40 6-May-13
You will not believe how many times i have been notified not to use template {{USERNAME}} too much. --User:RockoRocks/sig 13:27, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Testing to see what <insert name here> does. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:55, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

How is using the "username" template a prank? It just writes my name (see above) Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:57, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

No, when I view the page, it writes my name. And when a noobie views the page in question, he reads that Rocko has nominated the noobie (not USERNAME) for banning from Uncyclopedia for some transgression that the noobie doesn't know he committed. He cannot understand how he got in such trouble so quickly. That's the prank. Been there.
Rocko, I have metered Internet and usually run with images disabled, and your new signature appears as nothing but blank space. Could you provide alternate text for your signature image to make it easier to tell that it's you? Spıke Ѧ 10:11 6-May-13
Hey Spike, i think i fixed my template. I also resized my signature to 15 pixels, because UN:SIG states it may not be larger than 15 pixels (it was 20 pixels). Check it out: --User:RockoRocks/sig 13:12, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
If you like it, here is it again --User:RockoRocks/sig 13:12, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Looking good, thanks. (Not looking especially better the second time.) The key is that the posting time is written to the talk page, but everything else stays inside "sig". Spıke Ѧ 13:23 6-May-13
Now, you state, above, "You will not believe how many times i have been notified not to use template {{USERNAME}} too much." Then to keep doing so is what I meant, above, by "bad faith." Spıke Ѧ 14:22 6-May-13

Your sig

Is very large and it's breaking lines (see NOTM page for example). Can you make it smaller? Thanks. ~Jewriken.GIF 13:43, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Hmm. I don't exactly see the problem, it's 15px as of the guidelines and there are people with larger signatures than mine. Can you please be a bit more specific and tell me what's wrong? See : User:RockoRocks/sig2 for the template. And what do you mean exactly with that it's breaking lines? Nevermind, I found out. I'll see what I can do. --User:RockoRocks/sig 13:47, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
OK, let me know if you need help. ~Jewriken.GIF 13:50, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
What about now? And why do you think my signature is so large? It's only about 116 x 15 pixels large. It could be that the signature of me you saw was the old one, which was indeed too large but already scaled. The signature you see now may not be the final one, as i'm messing around with it right now. Anyways, here the updated version is : --User:RockoRocks/sig 13:55, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

If anything is wrong with it, please specify what and i'll see what we can do. I FINALLY FOUND WHAT WAS WRONG. Here is my new, scaled signature that does not break lines and paragraphs --User:RockoRocks/sig 14:07, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

Excellent, I'll make up the non breaking sig award and award it to you when I get the time. ~Jewriken.GIF 14:10, May 6, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks --User:RockoRocks/sig 14:12, May 6, 2013 (UTC)

The rules on new articles

To think that I've been accused of being the factor driving new users away from Uncyclopedia! When a new user arrives and creates a crappy article, consider how your behavior looks to them.

  • Do not make their first interaction with an Uncyclopedian be to see tags slapped on their article.
  • Do not use tags to inform them of what is wrong with their article, especially if no one has gone to their talk page (as I just did to User talk:Crazy Tim) to welcome them.
  • So use the talk page to gently explain areas for improvement.
  • Do not nominate their article for deletion. VFD is not for articles less than a week old. If a new article is both crappy and without hope for improvement, at the worst move it to their userspace, and tell them on their talk page exactly where it went and why.
  • Please go to Tim's talk page and befriend him after your rude welcome. Spıke Ѧ 14:54 6-May-13

Rocko, would you try again? That was an "apology" of the form, "I'm sorry you suck." Spıke Ѧ 18:05 6-May-13 Sorry. I tried again, but i think it's a bad apology again. I suck at apologies, so please help. --User:RockoRocks/sig 18:10, May 7, 2013 (UTC)


This section is about nagging Rocko. If you want to ban him instead, see Ban Patrol.

Please stop coding <div>s at the start of articles. I understand that you saw one and are copying it, but it is a complicated and unreadable way to code this. An easier way is as above. Sometimes you can use {{Main}}. Separately,

  • At Transistor, the Anon took a working redirect and turned it into the start of a disambiguation page, without finishing it. I was just thinking about undoing him.
  • At God, your new DIV looks almost identical to the one that's just there. It would be better to stick these things in See also rather than pull the article off-topic before it even starts. Spıke Ѧ 20:58 12-May-13
Thanks for the advice SPIKE --User:RockoRocks/sig 21:01, May 12, 2013 (UTC)

If you want to write a complete disambig, make it funny, like Well-endowed or Truth or Consequences. Spıke Ѧ 21:02 12-May-13
