edit Springtime Competition

Just a reminder to judge the articles as agreed. Apologies, British General Election got in the way. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:47, May 10, 2015 (UTC)

edit Your vandal

Your vandal this afternoon has the earmarks of Poophead (search my talk page). Broadening Abuse Filter 13 may have discouraged him from registering new Poopheads. Spıke Ѧ 22:25 10-May-15

edit User creation log

Might be working again! Spıke Ѧ 00:31 11-May-15

It has been working for awhile (at least a month or more). I thought you had noticed? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:01, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

I had not; I usually run with Hide Logs, as logs are mostly me deleting stuff and banning Anons. British General Election got in the way? Do you now have a seat in Parliament, then? or are you in a Shadow Cabinet? (Liquor cabinet?) Do finish your judging; we had a week of great contributions, who seem to be cooling their heels now and waiting for the results. Spıke Ѧ 13:26 11-May-15

Yes, my bad. Got involved with Brit GE. Sorrows thoroughly back to Unc work. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:06, May 11, 2015 (UTC)
Campaigning for Howling Laud Hope no doubt. SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 18:53, May 11, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the positive feedback on all entries! But I think you must put them in sequence, and for extra credit, merge that with the Chief's sequencing, perhaps using my Helpful Wikitable, or I will lay this on Anton199 and who knows when it will happen. Spıke Ѧ 00:24 13-May-15

edit Noble gases

Wow, you voted for my article in second place and I didn't even have to show you my boobs. I bet mine are better than Jonny appleseed's. DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 01:20, May 14, 2015 (UTC)

That's why you came second Miley, though it was more 'moobage' than 'boobage' from Jonny. Next time Miley. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:48, May 14, 2015 (UTC)

edit Interview with a black supremacist

Time is up for this one on ICU. There is a funny point in here, waiting to get out, but a script of a shouting-match that puts words into a celebrity's mouth that he would not say, is not a funny way to do it. Would you please decide what to do with it? Spıke Ѧ 13:15 22-May-15

edit UnNews:Letterman thrown in dumpster hours after final 'Late Show' episode‎

Could you add a link to UnNews:Hours After 'Late Show' Final Episode, David Letterman Thrown in Dumpster to the Main page? I didn't know who to ask so I'll ask another admin too so whoever sees this first. :) DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 19:54, May 22, 2015 (UTC)

I believe SPIKE answered your call Miley. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:35, May 22, 2015 (UTC)
Did not, neither; just renamed it and applied a little house style (no excess capital letters in page names). I know Miley would not be caught dead listening to Rush Limbaugh, but her take on the news was almost exactly Rush's, and nearly all of the funny is in the Source: the amazing extent to which Letterman's network friends seem to be of the fair-weather variety, Miley adding the angle that Letterman was in the chair when it reached the dumpster. This one needs more work.
I don't listen to Rush much; I think that band broke up before I was born. :P The title change is fine, except I thought "Dumpster" was still a trademark like Coke or Claritin so had to be capitalized, but I just looked it up and they lost their trademark. DAP Dame Pleb Com. Miley Spears (talk) 01:40, May 23, 2015 (UTC)

edit Spike broke all the CSS, but fortunately only for two days

Separately, at about 15:00 UTC, someone at Wikia changed something (so did I, but only in the UnNews space). My personal orders removing the sidebar and Wikia ads now are removing everything, including the edit tab, the Rollback All button, My Contributions, everything. It will take time to figure out how to adapt, and it might all snap back to normal tomorrow. Spıke Ѧ 23:21 22-May-15

I have fixed the above, but our thumbnail illustrations no longer resemble Wikipedia, the "edit" buttons on sections no longer render as "[edit]" like Wikipedia, and the Village Dump listing is screwed up too. I can't tell whether they changed the page rendering or whether our MediaWiki:Common.css is no longer being invoked. I have a call in to Wikia as of Saturday morning (but it is a three-day holiday here). Spıke Ѧ 14:26 24-May-15

My fault! trailing double-quote instead of semicolon at the end of a standing order in MediaWiki:Common.css disabled most of the site-wide CSS for two days. Have asked Wikia to cancel the ticket. Spıke Ѧ 19:03 24-May-15

OK. Firing Squad order rescinded! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:32, May 24, 2015 (UTC)

Wikia acknowledged and stood down in seven minutes. Spıke Ѧ 19:39 24-May-15

edit VFD

You have only one vote on the current small crop of articles on VFD (and ScottPat replied with a request for justification, which I second). In particular, Where are my keys? requires only one more vote to leave the building. 14:20 Thanks! Spıke Ѧ 19:04 24-May-15

edit Re: Now We Are Six

In fact, it's five and done, so cash these two guys out and let's rack up the pages for a new month (or other indefinite period). Spıke Ѧ 22:14 25-May-15

OK. Till the next Quarter. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:15, May 25, 2015 (UTC)


  • New user Karlstonecold arrived (at this and one other website) and planted at WWE what Puppy would call a "fanboy rant." I userspaced it and he told me to shut up, though that is expected when {{Oh Dear}} is given, but he is continuing to edit it in userspace. You are welcome to look in.
  • New user Bobby Ketchum has, on his user page, a vanity page, which is all right, but it starts out just as a mainspace Bobby Ketchum did (until I deleted it), which suggests he is a sock of Thosedarnkids.
  • ‎User:Protestant Coalition/Dinosaur Unionist Party is the newest in this Irish personal story arc. I userspaced it because we already had an article on the DUP and his page title was a pun. Spıke Ѧ 22:25 25-May-15
I left a suggestion on Protestant Coalition's page. See if he wants to talk to us. Karlstonecold presumably wants to do his own thing - in user space for now. Bobby Ketchum could well be a sock. See if he heads to the same areas where Thosedarnkids used to go. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:36, May 25, 2015 (UTC)

edit UnNews:UK may pull out of Eurovision in 2016

You seem to have taken my UnNews:Nothing happening; newsmen adapt as a challenge! Spıke Ѧ 14:38 26-May-15

Eurovision is a serious business. This year the Australians were allowed as a 'special'. Next year it could be Barack Obama turning up in Stockholm for 2016. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:39, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

Renamed this to give it a country focus for the Front Page. Spıke Ѧ 14:52 26-May-15

No probs. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:53, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

PS--Karlstonecold had a nice rage-quit last night, evidently based on the wording in {{Oh Dear}}, and in favor of a website where he splooged his article just before he did so here. So his work lives on, at a better repository for that sort of thing, and my feelings aren't hurt. The Anon working on Steven Pinker created "Homosexuality (pre-colonized version)" — which I deleted; I had invited him to become an Uncyclopedian, and if he wants to interdict the Colonizers, he should at least join. If he knows what was happening here in the days of the Colonizers, he may be another rage-quit veteran who wants to contribute but not to say who he is. Spıke Ѧ 15:10 26-May-15

edit Chamber pot

Hi Romartus! Thanks for your nomination of my article! I hesitated on whether to do it, because I personally can't add much to what is already there, but I agree with yours and Chief's critiques. In all honesty, do you think the article is ready? And is there an imperative change I need to make? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:48, May 26, 2015 (UTC)

I went in this morning and made some of the sentences flow smoother. Don't remember what the judges' critiques were. Separately, UotM and WotM have five, and you probably remember what needs to be done now. Spıke Ѧ 18:51 26-May-15
PS--After checking, I don't find any critiques that are fatal. Me, I was baffled why each of your footnotes ends with: Editor's note. In fact, you have two quotes from Cicero; one seems like something he actually said, and one seems like words stuffed in the corpse's mouth. You refer back to one or the other, and figuring out which is too much like work. The sections on the philosophical and literary worlds might still be too philosophical/literary (that is, hard to read for the sake of being hard to read). The toilet as the chamber pot's successor is worth more than a passing mention (as it were) on its relation to the philosopher. Spıke Ѧ 18:59 26-May-15
Slightly confused. Is that for Anton or me? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:16, May 26, 2015 (UTC)
All that was kibitzing for Anton's possible use. Spıke Ѧ 20:41 26-May-15

edit FIFA

I see you just uploaded something on this theme. Today we have had one/several Anons make many unclever edits at the expense of Sepp Blatter. Presumably you are about to clear up all the confusion? Spıke Ѧ 22:56 27-May-15

I will do and write an UnNews on the subject. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:25, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

edit UnNews:FIFA lose first game to FEDS

  • I presume your second American "Currie" was supposed to be Loretta Lynch?
  • Can you give me a second photo that will look better on the Front Page?
  • When I edit this, I see: "User account "Romartus" is not registered." Wikia at play already? (See the Forum.) Spıke Ѧ 15:48 28-May-15
Hmmm that is odd. Does it say that on your account? Thanks for the edit. A pic of Sepp Blatter could be used (one I added to his page). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:35, May 28, 2015 (UTC)
No, apparently SPIKE is registered. But the message still comes up on this page. 17:38 Hmm, I tried to check your Contributions to find the name of the Blatter file, but Romartus has no contributions. (Nor "Un-Romartus" either.) Spıke Ѧ 17:40 28-May-15
I can log into Wikia with my account there but that doesn't apply here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:47, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

No, it be first of June.

Sannse's message, if you are Romartus there and here, is that you had better edit your email and password to be identical before the merge (which wasn't supposed to happen until next week). Are you their guinea pig? Spıke Ѧ 17:51 28-May-15
Looks like it. Has someone jumped the gun? My calendar says 28th May! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:31, May 28, 2015 (UTC)

edit United Kingdom general election, 2015

Hi Romartus, as you may have noticed I've put together an article that compiles our GE coverage's best jokes so that they may live on and not get lost in the UnNews archives. I haven't added the images yet (I'm about to) but if you want to add anymore text, links or expand the intro please do. Thanks. SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 12:27, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

OK. Thanks ScottPat. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:57, May 30, 2015 (UTC)
Sorry Romartus didn't realise you were working on it. I've moved the article to mainspace. All your changes were before the move but that's just for future reference. Cheers. I'll stick it up for feature once your done. Joint honours for those listed on the talk page if it gets featured. SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 13:23, May 30, 2015 (UTC)


This article shouldn't go to VFD. It's very good. The joke is that that is one of the IPs that doesn't map to the actual Internet. Any IP starting with 127 is predefined to be a loopback address. Most people will find that the vandal from is using their PC right now. Editor SIsexual intercourse does not know what he is doing. Spıke Ѧ 12:57 30-May-15

Ok, just seemed to be one of those geek-generated articles that I find hilariously unamusing. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:59, May 30, 2015 (UTC)

Watch what you are calling me, as my edit of 7-Oct-13 took (uncensored) and added testimony such as that the vandal evidences "some of the stupidest expressions of political opinions imaginable, although his beliefs do seem to line up with those of this writer." (In the style of Pogo Possum (illustration just above), best known for the quote, "We have met the enemy and he is us.") Spıke Ѧ 13:18 30-May-15

edit UnNews:Nuremberg-style trial for FIFA

This is advertised on the main page. Regarding the Front Page: The first photo is too busy. There is a second photo, but I don't understand what it's about, and it won't relate to an excerpt shown on the Front Page. Spıke Ѧ 16:48 3-Jun-15

The photo is of the sports presenter in her swimming costume. I can re-arrange the article to bring her out more in the story. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:40, June 3, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the adjustment; it's up now. Spıke Ѧ 18:18 3-Jun-15

I walked on you just now at {{RecentUnNews}} on the main page — Didn't see you had updated the illustration too. I claim mine is slightly more interesting, but don't mind if you put yours back. Spıke Ѧ 12:37 5-Jun-15

That's fine. Just wanted to re-fresh the front page images and lead stories. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:42, June 5, 2015 (UTC)

edit Squidfest

Please minister to this new Uncyclopedian. I do not seem to be getting through to him. Spıke Ѧ 03:24 6-Jun-15

edit My Morning Jacket

No problems on changing my ban of McWiki.

You had a hand in My Morning Jacket, but the {{WIP}} has expired. Is this article abandoned? Is it going anywhere? Warn by upgrading to {{ICU}}? Spıke Ѧ 12:44 15-Jun-15

I have let My Morning Jacket stand as an article. Seems a bit more than a hate article or conversely, a lover letter so let it stand. I changed the ban on DylanMcWiki, being that he is annoying rather than a vandal but fair warning given as regards his category creation spree. Not the first user we have had here who resolutely refuses to talk to anyone on their own talk page. See if that will change now. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:08, June 15, 2015 (UTC)
It is important that he talk to someone, because he does not write comedy but only disparagement, and usually with rubber-stamping categories and quotes rather than even prose; very nearly a vandal. Spıke Ѧ 15:35 15-Jun-15

edit UnNews:Agamemnon: Greece's economy can recover

Greece has walked away from talks with the IMF, about making promises with which to get new money, with which to pay off part of the old money before going on to break promises. I've written the UnNews twice, both about the same. If I do it again, it will again be more of the same, for one good reason. Spıke Ѧ 15:39 15-Jun-15

I will think of a new angle. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:28, June 15, 2015 (UTC)

I moved this, but it is in today's edition, Above the Fold. Spıke Ѧ 18:51 16-Jun-15

edit Message on my user-page

I want to leave a message about why I'm leaving but I don't intend to cyberbully, so I thought I'd run it by you before putting it up:

edit "A brief explanation that hopefully is okay with everyone about why I left


Wikia customer services respond quickly to calls.

"Basically, I don't like the way I was treated here and I don't like the way I saw other people being treated here. The vast majority of regular users are tolerable and some are even nice, but the minority is significant enough to put a damper on not only fun but on positive emotions in general.

"My advice to other users who don't like how they are treated is not to simply leave the site like me necessarily but to know that there are alternatives that deserve to be sought out. Also to check the history on talk-pages and user-pages because contrary to what one might believe, some messages do get censored but everything can be found under history." The preceding unsigned comment was added by Everyotherusernamewastaken (talk • contribs)

Just leave a simple message on your user page, provide a link where you have gone and that's it. All else is drama stoking (see entry). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:42, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
Okay, if you're sure providing a link is acceptable, I'll just do that. ~EveryOtherUsernameWasTaken(dtf?) 22:05, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
Fine. I will do that in line with previous departures to be consistent. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:07, June 17, 2015 (UTC)
OK you did yourself. Now unleash yourself on the Fork and make it more than an IRC channel with a wiki attached. :) --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:11, June 17, 2015 (UTC)

edit Bronies are back

I have deleted My LIDL Pony by PopePoppin'FreshI and associated illustrations. There is a comedy concept here — blur the German grocery store (making noises about expanding in the US) with the brony movie — but it was mostly just an excuse to type another photo gallery of bronies, plus an unfortunate bit of navelism revolving around my own user name, with a title that required that the user guess the punch line to read the joke. Spıke Ѧ 11:18 18-Jun-15

I thought My LIDL Pony was quite a good gag but I don't know the rest of the pony meme. Perhaps it was best as an image only story?--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:00, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

edit Shoop me

File:Rosa Parks.jpg, used in an UnNews today, wants to be shooped to put a woman more absurd than Rosa Parks on the U.S. $10 bill. Spıke Ѧ 11:56 18-Jun-15

As compared to putting an absurd man on there instead (Ronnie R for example?). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:00, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

edit McWiki bis

I whacked him again. Spıke Ѧ 16:56 18-Jun-15

Sigh :(. Shame, I quite like the Marine Le Pen article as a good start. Perhaps I should adopt it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:19, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps you should adopt McWiki; maybe he'd listen to you. I thought of something else: this could be a Darthpedia attack à la "Do what Spike dislikes and see whom he bans." Spıke Ѧ 18:05 18-Jun-15

I don't see that connection but I will give him another go on this. He was demolishing his own article earlier. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:57, June 18, 2015 (UTC)

edit Magna Carta

Spike suggests I ask you to contribute to the Uncyclopedia version. Are you interested?

I am not 'being Achilles in his tent': more hopping on and off the Wikiaverse-exploring-Tardis. (There are some wikis far weirder than many Uncyclopedians would think of.) Jackiespeel (talk) 15:37, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

Hi there! I will have a look at the article. Thanks for the shout. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:09, June 19, 2015 (UTC)

edit Amazon Women

You virtually adopted this article off VFD, but haven't touched your plate. It just received the second edit of its short, pathetic life, both by Anon. Please do something with it, even QVFD as should have been done originally. Spıke Ѧ 03:24 20-Jun-15
