edit Greggs

Your vote to keep this article makes it 3-1 Symbol keep vote Keep. I closed the vote and scrubbed up the article, softening the company motto from "Providing shit to scum" to "Scones for Scum" and taking it in a few new directions, such as a mention of the proposed "Greggs Moment" offshoot. Given the less awful motto, we (=you) could almost re-Shoop their logo. Wouldn't that attract some publicity? Spıke ¬ 14:27 15-Oct-14

PS--Never mind. Anton199 has now changed the supposed motto entirely, this one bearing some relation to their real-world one.

Can we get you back to UnNews after two weeks? The alternative is for me to write another pre-election anti-Ebola -Obama rant to do for the Republicans what they don't seem willing to do for themselves. Incidentally, I decided to take the piss out of my U.S. senator; would you please look in and see if it offers any amusement to people unfamiliar with the issues? Spıke ¬ 14:58 19-Oct-14

I was considering some new UnNews articles. I will try out some ideas tomorrow. Regards the Greggs logo, I would have kept the message 'Providing shit to scum'. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:37, October 19, 2014 (UTC)
I agree with Romartus. It works well with the British stereotype of Greggs. Pre-election? Are both our nations going to have big elections next year then? Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:42, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
USA Presidential elections are in 2016. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:44, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
Ah right. Spike's obviously so desperate for change he's deluded himself into thinking they are just round the corner. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:50, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
President Hillary Clinton for 2016! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:31, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
Can't say I'd agree but she'd probably be better than anything the Republicans throw up. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:26, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
"Throw up"...uhmm...that's an unpleasant thought! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:52, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
I, on the contrary, entirely agree with what The Guardian said about the previous message: "Classist, crass and a far cry from the company’s actual slogan: “Always fresh. Always tasty.”" Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:10, October 23, 2014 (UTC)

For youse's information, the entire U.S. House of Representatives and one-third the U.S. Senate (including one of my two Senators) are to be voted on, Tuesday after next. Repeating, I'd appreciate any feedback on my new pages on northeaster Senators (three, now, mentioned at Template:Recent). I don't expect them to be maximally funny in your hemisphere, but at least you can tell me if they come off as humor rather than rant.

That the Guardian faults us for disparaging its cherished lower classes, we can do little about. That it was "a far cry from the company's actual slogan" was a problem: All our disparagement ought to have a hook to Real Life. Spıke ¬ 17:53 23-Oct-14

Well BBC Radio 4 has no problem with jokes about Greggs and their panel shows involve actual Communists as guests, I trust their judgement of humour more than the unhumorous Champagne Socialists write the Guardian. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:01, October 23, 2014 (UTC)
But the problem was that "providing shit to scum" isn't a joke and isn't funny! Yes, it probably reflects the British stereotype about Greggs but it isn't ridiculing it in any way, just stating it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:09, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
'Champagne socialists'. Yep, bring back the whippets and pints of Mild Bitter. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:28, October 24, 2014 (UTC)
As a reader of the Guardian, I am quite disgusted by their attack on Uncyclopedia's comedy so I will do the most revolutionary thing a champagne socialist can do and write to the BBC (who obviously own the Guardian) to complain. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:46, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
Scott, stop being so serious! And if you aren't being serious, then stop being so un-serious! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:53, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
I am very serious about this issue. And to show that I am my letter will be no ordinary letter. It will be a strongly worded letter. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:14, October 26, 2014 (UTC)
Good luck with it! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:57, October 26, 2014 (UTC)

edit Tax rebate for Foreign Nationals

Would you please take a look at this? I think new user Sirrenderbarai is trying to be funny, but he's not doing a good job of it.

Also, I found your lead at Talk:William F. Buckley. Spıke ¬ 18:23 24-Oct-14

edit UnNews:Americans receive "privatized" fireworks show

I renamed your UnNews of today, as none of us have heard of the town of Wallop and the pun was a stretch. Spıke ¬ 14:12 29-Oct-14

edit Gay Dragons' Hall

Uncyclopedian Jm3106jr asks me on my talk page to restore text I deleted from Oxford University pursuant to the rule, "We don't care about your high school" and presumably, not about your residence hall either. Would you please evaluate this? It still seems to me like a big inside joke not fit for our pages. Spıke ¬ 17:14 29-Oct-14

OK.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:52, October 29, 2014 (UTC)
Looks like a vanity edit in my view by Jm3106jr. Cruft rule applies. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:54, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

I told him. He is itching that we eliminate all comparable cruft on the page, but I told him he is perfectly situated to do so; and he claims to have studied UN:VAIN. Spıke ¬ 15:49 31-Oct-14

OK, well let him do it. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:55, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

edit LeBron James

If your comment, on putting Caliphate on the main page "in time for Friday" has to do with Halloween, I wish we could have gotten LeBron James there in a timely way, alleged racism or no. The last two weekends, NFL games on television have had ads by everyone from McDonald's to Dr. Dre headphones, with the theme of "Welcome back, LeBron." The Cleveland Cadavers opened their regular season last night, and commentary on sports radio here revolved around his pre-game pep talk to his teammates (sit back and enjoy my return to the city), just before he proved he has not re-learned how to hold onto a basketball. All begging for comedy treatment...although, we did. Spıke ¬ 15:47 31-Oct-14

I know it was Halloween but there was no article ready to stick there instead. Oh the talk here is for an NFL team to be based in London to play at Wembley Stadium. I don't see how that's going to work. Fans doing a 6,000 mile round trip but there is money after this idea. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:57, October 31, 2014 (UTC)

If there is money after the idea, the NFL will be close behind. Teams are already subjected to grueling scheduling, such as playing Thursday Night Football after their usual Sunday game. I've heard that the NFL would soften things by having the opponent play on the US East Coast the week before to get somewhat acclimated to the time. For west-coast US athletes, however, an evening game in London would still be morning on their biological clocks. Presumably the Londoners would be allowed to play their eight away games in one or maybe two trips, but if they make the post-season, there would be no such flexibility. Mexico City is another site with a huge population, many of them looking North and some of them having enough money to make a team work -- as opposed to New York's second team, the Jets, which a new survey has revealed does not command a plurality of fans in any US county. Wembley remains the only place I've seen a professional game of American football. Spıke ¬ 23:35 31-Oct-14

edit I'm sorry....

I'm sorry about the edit i did yesterday to the "list of weapons that don't exist, but should" ,I'm just not used to wiki editing,And i was excited to make my first edit,I won't edit featured articles without permission again.


As I said in the summary, featured articles have a type of protection here. Otherwise, everything else you see can be edited but they have to improve an article. There are over 30,000 articles here. Some a very good, quite a few are not bad and the majority are 'room for improvement' all over them. For the bad stuff, they can be pulled out and sent here to be deleted - UN:VFD --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:04, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

edit How could I make it so my ungame category isnt deleted?

Yes I am making a Uncyclopedia Game which is in the UnGames section of Uncyclopedia

Anyways How can I make it so the category for my game is not deleted? I mean There are a bunch of other UnGames that got their own category.. So I wanted to know how those other UnGames got their category Thanks! - Randy295

Depends if the game works or is any good. Some of the other UnGames probably survive because no one has nominated their deletion. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:52, November 9, 2014 (UTC)
Well, I told him that the pages didn't need their own category, as they are all subpages of a single main page. Spıke ¬ 22:54 9-Nov-14
Ok. I admit, the game pages on this site have never made any sense to me. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:54, November 9, 2014 (UTC)

So that means my category for my UnGame could be undeleted or no? -Randy295

It doesn't need a category if there is only one article.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:36, November 10, 2014 (UTC)
I would suggest along this line, for one game make subpages of it, for example, Ungame:My Game\Page One. Hope this helps. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 01:15, November 11, 2014 (UTC)
He had done so, at Game:MMORPG Reboot/... so the category was unnecessary. But the maintenance tag ({{ICU}} by me) has expired (I also asked author on his talk page when it was going to start to get funny) and Frosty has huffed the group. Spıke ¬ 13:57 23-Nov-14
OK,not that I understand the original article anyway. I prefer the chisel and stone approach to articles. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:14, November 23, 2014 (UTC)

edit Power

Any suggestions for changes/improvements to the article? Any parts you thought didn't work? --ChiefjusticeGameCube 11:57, November 12, 2014 (UTC)

The article is OK but just seems to spin on the same idea in my view. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:31, November 12, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I was aware of that whilst I was writing it, it's the main reason the article isn't longer, since I set out with that concept in my mind. I did try and include some additional bits in the other sections but unfortunately there is only so much I could do with the idea. --ChiefjusticeGameCube 06:48, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit Pee Week

Hi Romartus! Do you think it would be a good idea to change the site banner that registered users see in order to advertise the upcoming Pee Week? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:58, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Good point Anton.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 20:03, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit Nudie photos

Wikia's latest raid on our cache of soft porno did not affect any article outside of userspace. But you don't have to undelete a photo to view it. In the "view/restore" page under the Delete tab, click on the top date in "File history" and you can see it. (Wa-hey!) Spıke ¬ 22:52 21-Nov-14

Ok. Thanks Spike. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:59, November 21, 2014 (UTC)

edit Request

I would like to recommend User:Nikau for rollback rights, do you agree? ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 06:00, November 24, 2014 (UTC)

I second that. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 06:49, November 24, 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I will do that. I thought he already had the rights being a long time user. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:36, November 24, 2014 (UTC)

I recommend Flashfreez for rollback also. Ye Blacke Adder (talk) 08:41, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

I will do. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:42, November 28, 2014 (UTC)

edit User talk:ItsAllEvilToMe

Newbie had a contribution deleted, see User talk:Frosty, and states his case on his own talk page. In my opinion, his gang are trolls who are here to practice vanity, including gripe about their treatment on other websites, then bash Admins here when they don't get their way. I banned him but you might review his case. Spıke ¬ 17:04 1-Dec-14

He hasn't actually done anything to this wiki as yet besides moan. That isn't worth a ban in my view.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:20, December 1, 2014 (UTC)

Very well. Spıke ¬ 21:31 1-Dec-14

edit UnNews:Peruvian bear faces deportation

Thanks for the UnNews; I truncated the headline, copy-edited it, and added 1.5 jokes. Spıke ¬ 11:16 2-Dec-14

PS--Rage-quit last night at User talk:ItsAllEvilToMe. But Hanyouman accepts a lesson about not planting a new joke in the middle of an old one, and BringItOn711 and Coles3rdAccount have begun to post. Unhappy Anon on my talk page. Spıke ¬ 11:19 2-Dec-14

Yes, I caught up on the reading today. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:11, December 2, 2014 (UTC)
Thanks for edit to the story and joke addition. It was an obvious story to write - at least here. We have a "Winnie the Pooh" gap here too! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:21, December 2, 2014 (UTC)

edit User "Usamimineko"

Would you please take a turn at reviewing her edits? Also the most recent change to the caption at Hashish. I have patrolled all the other edits overnight. (If another Patroller reads this first, go wild.) Spıke ¬ 12:14 3-Dec-14

edit Michael Fassbender

Ducksoup deleted another of your uploads, used in this article. I don't see that it fit the text. Spıke ¬ 00:49 4-Dec-14

Left the spanking photo in..well that's an advance. I will look for another image.--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:07, December 4, 2014 (UTC)

edit Rollback all

That prolific randomizer vandal was a good situation for the Rollback All tool. One click gets them all and tags both the rollbacks and vandalism as "bot edits," removing everything from RecentChanges unless one clicks "show bots." Spıke ¬ 14:41 4-Dec-14

PS--Same guy was back about an hour ago; I whacked him and he went away. He obviously has nothing as lucrative as telling clients he has put their ads on the web somewhere, and is solely seeking attention; using generic ban messages will avoid giving him the impression of success. Spıke ¬ 00:20 5-Dec-14

Thanks. I couldn't work out if it was vandalism or vandalism with a non-English translator attached. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:45, December 5, 2014 (UTC)

edit Vendetta in progress

Maniac1075 has been improving Mary Poppins. However, his final edit was not an improvement: He regenerated a discography (the usual list of toilet puns) and added a new round of illustrations, including a screen shot of a YouTube chat and someone else's cartoon where he added no humor; that is, not original comedy but a search of the Internet for things related to Mary Poppins. I reverted.

He undid my revert, thought better of it, then proceeded to put {{Fix}} on Floppy disk (noting on its talk page that much of it is "social commentary or just crap" — namely, my usual humor techniques) and nominated three articles for deletion. They have nothing in common except for being four of my reworks. Spıke ¬ 10:58 5-Dec-14

I know we were sort of discouraged to add You Tube links (Wikia Edict 1517) or something like that. I would have discussed this with Maniac rather than just reverting to see what was best for the article. I will leave a message on his page. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:34, December 5, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnNews:Don't panic, says Putin, as rouble crashes

I tweaked your headline. You might update this UnNews by playing off Putin's "news conference" occurring now. Reading the Associated Press, it strikes me that Putin is pulling some of the same strings as Obama is doing here. That might be a new angle for this, or comparing post-sanctions Russia with exile in Siberia, which may explain Russians' willingness to participate in polls and man-on-the-street interviews. Spıke ¬ 09:59 18-Dec-14

I saw some of the Putin stuff on tv. I think an article on Cuba and NK's win against Sony are ones to think about. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:23, December 18, 2014 (UTC)

Well, your Change Summary said you thought this needed more, so this is more. Did you notice the Sony spokesman in UnNews:Plumber enters terror war? Spıke ¬ 14:47 18-Dec-14
