Merry Christmas! SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 10:07, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
And a Merry Christmas to you ScottPat. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:12, December 22, 2015 (UTC)
Merry Christmas Romartus! All the best for 2016!  EStop Easy button 09:58, December 25, 2015 (UTC)
Merry Christmas to you Captain EStop. Glad to have made the acquaintance! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:36, December 26, 2015 (UTC)
Additionally, a belated Christmas and an early New Year's greeting from me. Sorry, forgot to put money in the card. Chunkles talk ✏️ contribs 04:28, December 29, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks Chunkles, you're the Bee's Knees. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:52, December 29, 2015 (UTC)

edit Happy New Year Romartus!

I wish you all the best, and good luck for 2016!  EStop Easy button 12:20, January 1, 2016 (UTC)

A happy New Year too you Estop. Apologies for the delay. I went to a New Year's day party as well. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:12, January 2, 2016 (UTC)

edit Why?:Does Everyone Hate Sonic the Hedgehog‎

I have questions for Simsie on her talk page, as our video-game expert, but they have policy implications and they are for you too. Spıke Radiomicrophone14:54 2-Jan-16

The article is a bit 'listicle' in my view with very short summaries of various versions but I wouldn't know where to start editing it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:58, January 3, 2016 (UTC)

Worse than that, as the list items have little humor and no concept other than the attitude of the narrator; so the current editor updates the list with more of the same. Simsie says that category-features deserve protection; otherwise I would VFD this straight away. Spıke Radiomicrophone10:16 3-Jan-16

I think that is too drastic. Happy New Year btw Spike. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:33, January 3, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, same to you! I was here all evening, writing New Year's Day. But EStop got a new bathtub, in the shape of a car. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:54 3-Jan-16

Hi, I'm one of those people who have lost the ability to log in. I used to be "jimlemon" and some time ago I found that I could not log in anymore. This may have coincided with my server blowing up and the ensuing change of email address. My email is now:

and as I probably won't be able to find this page again, perhaps someone could send a helpful recipe for my return. Thanks.

Jim Lemon

Do you have an account at Wikia too? The databases were merged a few months back. If it was the same email - you should receive a prompt to re-set it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:44, January 5, 2016 (UTC)

edit Main page has expired again

Strangehal filed a broadcast last night at Talk:Main Page to this effect. Spıke Radiomicrophone14:45 8-Jan-16

We can add a new article to feature or work out how to do a 'greatest hits' perhaps when activity is slow (I know the feeling). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:50, January 8, 2016 (UTC)

edit George Hammond‎‎

This is simply cyberbullying of someone's University professor, isn't it? {{Wikipedia}} had pointed to a disambiguation page, and the subject is none of the people there. Until my edit, it had pointers to Usenet and elsewhere for more ridicule. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:35 11-Jan-16

I can't find who this may be. I looked at Rationalwiki who are big on this subject (amongst others) and found nothing either. Google searching brings up nothing - or rather, a lot of 'George Hammonds'. I think the article could fall under the Not Notable category and be moved or deleted. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:27, January 11, 2016 (UTC)

It falls under the Cyberbullying category, especially given the Edit Summaries of FayeKaneGirlBrain69‎ today that the guy had gotten what he deserved, and I deleted it rather than let the cyberbullying continue in userspace. Spıke Radiomicrophone16:02 11-Jan-16

edit David Bowie

Though featured, this biography has a section Biography with ten subsections (1.1 through 1.10) comprising almost the entire article. This ought to be fixed. Also, I added a paragraph based on my surprise at the Wikipedia article, which seemed to obsess over Bowie's sexuality. Spıke Radiomicrophone23:32 12-Jan-16

I am going through it to change the tenses. I don't want to come all 'EpicWinner' and go for a full feature re-write. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:37, January 12, 2016 (UTC)

edit Uncyclopedia:Writer of the Year

Could you open this to edit so that I may add a nomination? SirScottPat VFH NotM WotM WotY UotM 16:07, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

Good idea! I will look for the template. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:21, January 18, 2016 (UTC)

edit 2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl

Would you like a contest entry? Spıke Radiomicrophone13:46 25-Jan-16

Have you asked ChiefJustice? Didn't he write the American Football article?? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:46, January 25, 2016 (UTC)

He did. I asked him to write .OR. be an additional judge, email dated 20-Jan 23:54, copy to you and the other Admins. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:11 25-Jan-16

edit Porno

File:Asses.jpg is not used in the content spaces at all but on talk pages and in personal porno caches that the Wikia mandarins somehow never peruse in full. The Hendrix album cover is only used as a parting shot at Pornography, which is hardly made funnier by yet another example. In short, no matter whether they are justifiable as art, they have no impact on our comedy mission and it is not worth provoking Wikia over them. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:08 27-Jan-16

I was in two minds about the 'asses' picture as it wasn't on any page worth keeping. The Hendrix image is different and I would move that there. I view that if these deletes are not challenged, other pages could get their images removed. So I will re-delete (if that's in English) the asses image and keep the Hendrix one for now. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:10, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

Now re-deleted by Ducksoup with a personal message, though unresponsive, to the photo or to Wikia's frequent claim that its rules have some give at obvious humor websites like this. Look on the bright side, you didn't have to file a ticket, wait two days, or rate the quality of the contact to get this bit of final push-back. Spıke Radiomicrophone18:23 27-Jan-16

Well I will keep an eye on the Huff Log to see what next gets the Nipple Police activated. Tiresome stuff. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:07, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

edit Un-satisfied customer

HyettsTheGamer wants to be mainspaced and claims he has read HTBFANJS but just found it too confusing. He does not seem to have gotten all the way through the Welcome message. Maybe you would like to ram your head against this particular brick wall. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:22 28-Jan-16

We already have a short version of HTBFANJS but we can always tighten up the language I guess. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:54, January 28, 2016 (UTC)
Oh, and the bit about 'pestering'. I read it and it seemed dependent on a particular Admin's mood rather than something others could follow or not. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:04, January 28, 2016 (UTC)

No, I mean maybe you would like to ram your head against this particularly inert Uncyclopedian. HTBFANJS is plenty tight and would not necessarily get more readable if it got tighter. Much of the non-policy stuff is now in Choice of Words. On "pestering," do you have specifics? Illustrations? Spıke Radiomicrophone13:12 28-Jan-16

edit Kodak

This is a contest entry! Don't help him! Spıke Radiomicrophone16:00 1-Feb-16

Oh, sorry. Didn't check. Perhaps a template in future for a competition entry? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:14, February 2, 2016 (UTC)

edit Carly Fiorina on VFH

Don't want to tell you how to do your job, but Carly Fiorina should cut in front of Simsie's HowTo:Drive your car out of a lake because Fiorina may join Martin O'Malley in obscurity following the election here on Tuesday 9-Feb.

Fiorina now has Ovide® Lamontagne phoning in anti-abortion radio advertisements off a cheap cellphone. They will not work in a state where Democrats (in a quandary between a socialist and a felon) can cross over and vote Republican, and Fiorina does not appeal to them either as a nominee or a sabotage vote. Single-issue evangelical Republicans are for Carson and would not mind voting for Cruz. Everyone I know who's in politics because they believe in stuff is for Cruz; everyone I know who's for Trump is in politics because they want people to pay attention to them. The Marco Rubio campaign delivers three identical postcards to my house every day, and they have as little concept of Rubio as do Uncyclopedians. Jebbers just mailed one with a diffraction grating to show Rubio pointing in two different directions. Spıke Radiomicrophone14:49 3-Feb-16

I don't think that matters. If she quits next Tuesday, then the article could reflect her failure. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:35, February 3, 2016 (UTC)

Oh, it already does! Spıke Radiomicrophone15:44 3-Feb-16

And she did. "Yesterday's news." Spıke Radiomicrophone00:43 12-Feb-16

edit "A shining example of a country where multiple identities work"

Rather than ending with laughter in Parliament (a sight gag and a possible reference to the humor within a humor article), I think you should develop the above quote from your Source.

Barack Obama claims to be a Chicago White Sox fan and to have spent a lot of time at Cominski Park, which is probably somewhere near Comiskey (as John Kerry put "Lambert Field" in Wisconsin somewhere near Lambeau), but before his election, was unable to name any past or present White Sox player. American politicians have specialized in reinventing their own identities, from Hillary's and Barack's shifting accents to Al Gore reinventing American history to revolve around his life. But Cameron is the first I remember to cast pandering falsification itself as a proud trait. Spıke Radiomicrophone11:35 5-Feb-16

I will no doubt tweak the end of the paragraph to make it 'punch' more. Boris Johnson is a bit of 'Donald Trump' with women - unlike say, Churchill in my 1938 analogy. I will 'Douglas MacArthur' it later. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:41, February 5, 2016 (UTC)

Also, there is a new batch for you at Votes for Deletion. Spıke Radiomicrophone12:09 5-Feb-16

It is time for you to do some paper-grading, following one of the two suggested schemes in the Intro of Forum:2016 Uncyclopedia Super Bowl. Spıke Radiomicrophone03:33 8-Feb-16

Ok. I will have a look now. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:19, February 8, 2016 (UTC)

edit Template:RomartusWelcome

At the moment, this template is not a full welcome but just a modified copy of {{Writing funny stuff}}. I think you should at least restore a proper welcome and an explanation of how to post to talk pages without making the welcomee find it among the links. Otherwise, we will just have to scold him later. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:22 13-Feb-16

I will re-post the extended version. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:26, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

Have done; also explained to the newbie your revert, with which I concur. Except that I accused him of putting riddles in an article; if you look at his user page, what he inserted may be his own name. Separately, you posted twice to Soggy, and I deleted one of them. Spıke Radiomicrophone13:52 13-Feb-16

edit Thank you

Thanks for celebrity judging Romartus! Yes, Turnbull's father's middle name was Bligh, so is Turnbull's actually, a truly enviable middle name if you ask me!  EStop Easy button 10:04, February 14, 2016 (UTC)

No prob EStop. Turnbull's Grandfather had an interesting sense of humour...unless there was a family reason for calling anyone 'Bligh' as a middle name! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:10, February 14, 2016 (UTC)
