Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box.

Don't want to write anything? That's fine, some of our best users don't write articles. Want help writing something? Just ask. Most users here are more than happy to ramble incoherently about your articles or your ideas. If you aren't sure who to ask just choose an admin and ask them.

If you need help, advice or a rotating garden gnome, then you can ask on my talk page and I'll get back to you as fast as I can. You can also look into the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program and get paired up with an established editor.

Enjoy yourself and remember the rules, especially the first 3.

Again, Welcome!   -- --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:43, March 13, 2013 (UTC)

edit Yili

Hello and welcome! Unfortunately, I can't see anything funny in your contribution to this article. It might be true, but that doesn't make it funny. In fact, if it's false, that doesn't either. This is a comedy wiki. Thanks! Spıke Ѧ 19:14 13-Mar-13

Re - Talk:Yili If you need something deleted, list it on QVFD if it's something you wrote and nobody else has contributed to, particularly if it's relatively new. Or, you can ask one of the admins to delete it for you. For advice on how to be funny, I would recommend HTBFANJS. There's something to learn there for both experienced and new comedy writers. If you need feedback on an article, ask one of the regulars here on their talk page. Hope this helps! -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 01:06, March 16, 2013 (UTC)
Wise advice as always. Rather than delete this outright, as you request, I'll put it in your userspace, at User:Rstrong1234/Yili, where it will be if you get new ideas for it. Spıke Ѧ 01:56 16-Mar-13

edit Question about insult

I read from another article that I might need to make articles insulting or offensive. Is that true? If it's true, in what way should I be offensive in? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Rstrong1234 (talk • contribs)

  1. Please sign your posts to talk pages.
  2. Since this question concerns your education as a writer rather than an article, I have moved your question here from the article's talk page.
  3. When talking about "another article," it is universal here to use links so we can click on the link to read what you read.
  4. What you need to do is make articles funny. "Making articles insulting or offensive" is a non-goal, and anyone who pursues that and neglects being funny, usually manages to write an article that isn't funny at all. Tell me where you read it and I will correct the impression. Spıke Ѧ 20:37 16-Mar-13

edit Federal Aviation Administration

This is a very good-looking article, although you need to give it a good proofreading.

The biggest problem is above the Table of Contents. The Intro is too long--Intros should probably not include a bulleted list. The {{Wikipedia}} box, being partly a spoof of Wikipedia and partly a tool to help readers who don't know the facts you are making fun of, usually isn't in the Intro either, but is put wherever it will best break up a dense run of text.

Your article starts with (1) a box directing me how to interpret what I read, ugh! and (2) a very first paragraph containing the terms de facto and de jure, which I understand but doubt that the typical reader does. The Intro is ranty and makes me think that the writer is flogging grievances against the FAA. All things considered, I wonder whether it encourages the reader to go further. If I do go further, I hit: "The FAA is currently a puppet of the DoT and NTSB." I understand that the typical reader might be a pilot, but this conspiracy talk--agencies being in thrall to other agencies--does nothing for the rest of us. Likewise the assertion that FAA Headquarters occupies six buildings with sequential house numbers. Superficially, this looks absurd, but why this would be funny, I haven't a clue.

The section Agents and Personnel is insulting, and without any cleverness to make the insults really funny. We are starting to get the picture: the FAA is unprofessional. I do not know that to be the truth; if I did, I might be relieved to find someone shared my opinion, but even then I wouldn't be laughing at it. Perhaps a little more lightness or even silliness for the rest of us. I feel as though I've stumbled into a cockpit while a witty flight crew is engaged in dead-serious grumbling about their regulators. Spıke Ѧ 01:25 7-Apr-13

edit Thanks for reminding me

Thank you for looking over my article. I just did this completely for fun, so I didn't meant to really insult anyone. I will fix the ones you insisted. O my humour! Where to my humour? (talk) 02:08, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

I am not insulted nor insisting, just providing the review you invited in a Change Summary. Carry on! Spıke Ѧ 11:08 7-Apr-13
Very well, thanks anyways O my humour! Where to my humour? (talk) 13:46, April 7, 2013 (UTC)

edit National Transportation Safety Board

Spike has nominated one of your pages, NTSB, for featuring on the main page. You can vote for it or against it (or leave a comment) at Votes for Highlight. Good to "meet" you, and pack your luggage in the upper compartments. Aleister 10:17 30-4-'13

And it made the main page today; congratulations! Spıke Ѧ 11:51 11-May-13

edit Special:DoubleRedirects

Hi! A recent creation of yours turned up in this report; would you please make the redirect point directly to its intended destination? Thanks. Spıke Ѧ 00:39 3-Jun-13

I do not understand exactly what you're asking me to do, can you please clearify? --Rstrong1234 (talk) 00:26, June 4, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry! since I wrote that, it seems that another Admin redirected your ATC to point directly to Air traffic control. You had pointed it to a page with different capitalization. Links don't have to tell the reader where they are going, as in [[where it's going|how it reads]], but they should go there in one hop, not two. Spıke Ѧ 03:11 4-Jun-13

edit Updating versions of images

Hello! Several people here have observed that, when you upload a new version of an image, you don't see it taking effect immediately. I don't know the cause or the work-around; only that eventually the servers start to reflect your stated intentions. Happy editing! Spıke Ѧ 00:45 18-Dec-13

edit McDonald Douglas

That is a virtuoso interpretation! Spıke Ѧ 02:19 24-Apr-14

Thanks! --Rstrong1234 (talk) 15:47, April 25, 2014 (UTC)

edit Infobox

What were you trying to do with {{Infobox}} on your user page? If you click on the blue there, it will teach you how to use it. Basically, Infobox is a primitive template, which is used by other templates to present you a coding environment (with "name" and "country" and "birth date") as you seem to have wanted. On other templates, you say, "name is x"; with {{Infobox}}, you say "field name 5 is 'name' and field value 5 is 'x'". If this is baffling, pick a page you like and copy its code. Be very very literal. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 01:23 7-Dec-14
