edit User:Hesper Green/UnPoetia:One fish two fish dead fish jew fish‎

I think the standard for [UnPoetia] is not just something that one would look up in an encyclopedia, but rather in a book of poetry. This allows for a lot more leeway in what can be jokingly rhymed about in an unpoetry piece. However, thank you for userspacing the last one that was done - it relied too much on old meme humor, and would be potentially offensive to an entire ethnic group without redeeming value. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 03:08, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

edit Netflix

It's suddenly becoming famous. In France, at least. I saw a few posters advertising The House of Cards series. Last week I noticed an article on the front page of the Direct Matin newspaper about Netflix starting to sell its products in France. And I am not talking about several times I saw its logo while watching trailers. So our article was featured at the right time! Telling you this, just in case you are interested. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:29, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

Not just that, but gigantic telephone operator Verizon is shutting down its competing streaming service, Redbox Instant, before midnight tomorrow. Spıke ¬ 11:46 6-Oct-14

edit Lebron James

Now the next task is to time the featuring of Lebron James for the week that he takes "my talents" away from "South Beach" and back to Cleveland. Spıke ¬ 18:12 3-Oct-14
You did what you could! Now it's up to voters! But, speaking about that article, does the "pwned" in a section heading have a specific purpose? I am not a basketball fan and don't know Mr. LeBron, so can't tell if there is any background behind it. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:24, October 3, 2014 (UTC)
Pwned ( = "owned" = dominated and humbled) might not have anything to do with Lebron or his cohort. The only thing important to the comedy is to show the parallelism between Lebron's treatment of real and imagined adversaries, and his treatment of his once-and-future host city.

edit Deletion of BatteryIncluded article.

Last year, you deleted a page about [...] - a possibly more robust and somewhat vile approach to any actions I take herein on Uncyclopedia that are aimed at Wikipedia.

  • 05:34, July 10, 2013 SPIKE (talk | contribs) deleted page BatteryIncluded (Anon writes a coded rant about a specific website user's alias)

The anonymous IP who wrote an allegedly coded rant about him is registered to Telekom Malaysia is myself. I wrote it because of he bullied me, then have the admins (such as [...]) did the same. I wrote it here because I'm upset that the same individual might meet me again at some point in the future (along with the Wikipedia admins) on some threatening intention like beating me and sending threats of death and neo-luddism toward computers.

Let me guess. I may have created trouble on Wikipedia on the Internet, but it is Wikipedia's insane culture and policy, in which the people on it have created an [entire world of extreme, heavy-handed, draconian, and unevenly enforced rules] for them to follow and worship to the point of eliminating the Wiki's very producers. With this, the administrators have [turned Wikipedia into an online totalitarian regime], and no one has ever done a darn thing about it. In that post, Geoffrey Liu has talked about all these admins who were responsible for bullying me or something. Now, Wikipedia is a lost cause, and [fewer and fewer people] have the courage to edit the wiki encyclopedia any more.

I think you should make the community on Wikia aware about Wikipedia's problems, and the threat that BatteryIncluded poses to people. BatteryIncluded is responsible for outings, personal attacks, incivility, threats, and unilateral actions so does the admins themselves. And do not let these parties responsible beat me or threaten me.

BTW, I do not have a kitten in my house, and I do not have a computer virus/trojan installed on my computer (I checked it with my anti-virus software more often, and I got a firewall). The kitten that BatteryIncluded gave me, and the virus that he used to infect my computer, as well as my obsession with the Russian Phobos-Grunt space mission from 2007 onwards are pure coincidences - re-written history by admins. 16:56, October 5, 2014 (UTC)

Sir: As I am unable to direct psychiatric help to you, I think I should instead perma-ban you. If the IP is registered in Malaysia to you, it makes me giddy to think you will not be able to evade the ban. Spıke ¬ 17:36 5-Oct-14

edit Ad hominem

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Nice Malala Yousafzai article too, she deserves Uncyc's recognition. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:15, October 11, 2014 (UTC)

edit PLS

Congratulations for winning the best rewrite. I read your article and found it very funny. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:03, October 19, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks! I submitted it merely to perform "page-rape" on the languishing competition page, but it was fun to write, as the more you say about Brick, the more directions continue to present themselves. Spıke ¬ 14:54 19-Oct-14

edit Embedding videos

I have just used <youtube></youtube> to embed a video on my userpage, but notice that the system has automatically uploaded File:Blackadder_Theme_(S2)_-Chains and changed the code in my userpage to [[File:Blackadder Theme (S2) -Chains|450px]]. In particular, clicking on the video does not play it directly on the userpage, but sends me to UnCommons. The video has uploaded 4 times (presumably the total number of previews and saves I have made), and by the time you read this probably more due to my attempts to fix it. I presume this is not supposed to happen, as the videos here embed properly. Apologies for the inconvenience; I'll send the file to QVFD once I fix the issue. Ye Blacke Adder (talk) 09:23, October 20, 2014 (UTC)

No, that is the way Wikia does it now, supposedly to increase performance. Sorry the log lists you as the multiple "uploader." The bot may perform this conversion and "upload" every time you edit the line calling for the video.
Separately, I dislike the technique of linking to videos. We ought to write original comedy, not point readers to external media (even if Wikia internalizes it). Spıke ¬ 11:55 20-Oct-14

edit Mah stuff

I deserve no constructive criticism, apparently. I was going to get it pee reviewed but I can't really when it has been deleted, can I?

Thank you, I guess. --IforgotHowtopoo (talk) 19:30, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

I gave you {{Oh Dear}}, which sums it up. We don't want it. If I were you, I'd pick a different user name and start over. Spıke ¬ 19:52 21-Oct-14

edit The Mother Ship of amateur comedy

Do you know that the description of Uncyclopedia you put up at MediaWiki:Anonnotice has been highlighted in a blog instead of the original and not as funny "content-free encyclopedia"? Here's a link. Nice job! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:43, October 21, 2014 (UTC)

Butt-hurt blogger from Denver worries that a humor wiki doesn't portray his city accurately! I beg your pardon, but as proud as I am of my new Anonnotice, it in no way produced his reaction — and ironically, quoting it, or any other accurate self-description, would show why his blog was not well-taken. The quote that Denver's economy is based on "selling sexually explicit magazines to Oklahomans who want to look at nasty cooters but can't buy such things at home without a permit from the governor" is crude but done with cleverness. On crudeness not done with cleverness, see immediately above this section. Spıke ¬ 19:56 21-Oct-14
Is he worried? He does say they're 'hilariously untrue'... -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 22:20 21 Oct 2014

edit User:Iggy the Piggy/Murphy's law application for anti-gravitatory cats

Have you seen the page about Murphy's law application for antigravitatory cats? It seems that the article you userspaced for Iggy the Piggy is an attempted rewrite of a (featured) article we already have. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 12:29, October 25, 2014 (UTC)

I had not indeed! nor, apparently, had Romartus. I'll tell the newbie; rewriting an FA is not the most promising way to begin life here. This is one of several pages in the last week with interlocking new editors. I wish the schoolteachers would teach creative writing themselves rather than send their entire class at once to our little on-line college. Spıke ¬ 12:59 25-Oct-14
Do you really think that's what's happening? That's funny. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:06, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
As I patrol in the early morning (eastern USA), it strikes me that our new users come in waves, and that there are patterns: in this case, multiple newbies on the same page, but in previous cases, flurries of new, stubby pages, edits to related pages, or unambiguous vandalism. Whether on the chalkboard, in a toilet stall, on a competing wiki, or on IRC, it seems there are waves. However, the human mind also sees patterns in events that are actually random. Spıke ¬ 13:12 25-Oct-14
OK, that's interesting! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:15, October 25, 2014 (UTC)
Now, keep going on VFD; there is new stuff at the end. Also: Why create a personal list of Must Reads? Why not just read 'em?! Spıke ¬ 13:18 25-Oct-14
I am thinking about a project, related to Uncyclopedia's upcoming 10th anniversary. I will detail at the end of 2014, in a forum, not to spoil the surprise. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:33, October 25, 2014 (UTC)


Not a BENSON cult member, I take it? True, the discussion is over, but what about newcomers who wish to learn about the legacy of BENSON? -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:49, October 27, 2014 (UTC)

No, I am not. I did not delete the Forum, only reverted Anon who added a sentence of froth to it long after it was closed. Incidentally, looking at the History, do you have any idea how he was able to do this? Spıke ¬ 21:53 27-Oct-14
If any of the sections had an edit header on them he may have been able to edit that way. Also, I assume some of the blame - I dropped a reference to BENSON on another website's forum. You might understand if you had seen the context. I'd let you know which website, but that would probably be TOS problem, or just an off-topic digression. I happen to be a BENSON fan, and miss the days when trolls got trolled. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 22:05, October 27, 2014 (UTC)
None of us are under the illusion that a "closed" Forum is uneditable. But this was a page with edit:sysop protection — oh, forget it, there's the answer: expires 15:06, 5 May 2008. Spıke ¬ 22:09 27-Oct-14

edit HowTo:Win

Reverted edit from earlier today....“Everyone gets knocked up, champions just go down.”

I'm confused. Please explain this faux pas. Perhaps we should just attribute this quote to Lombardi, then? I think it's actually decently funny. TheCan (talk) 19:30, October 29, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, the syntax error was to try to embed this quotation by Lombardi inside a quotation already attributed to Wilde. Wilde has been horribly overused here over the years (see How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid) and is discouraged unless it is actually funny — and the quotation before you modified it had a fellatio pun, which was moderately funny. That is: The previous author was making a joke until you plopped your different one down in the middle of it! By the way, initial quotations in general — which don't help us resemble Wikipedia — are being discouraged too. Don't labor under the illusion that every article has to have one (or twelve).
Anyway, I did not mind your joke; it was where and how you inserted it. As with many disagreements like this, there is probably a way for you to do it, just differently.
Now to get nitpicky, when discussing a disagreemeent, please provide a link to the page in question, as I now have; I like 'em as the section title. This one was easy to search for because I remember using the word "fellatio" in the Change Summary. Spıke ¬ 20:14 29-Oct-14
Aha! Okay, sorry about that last part, bad manners on me.
Hehehe, though, I was wondering why this confused me. Unless that quote was satirized by someone else on another page, you do realize that I was the original author of said satire?
Anyways, I don't really care, i'll use the "quote" somewhere else. I'll check out that initial quotes page, anyway.
Internet's Cheers from TheCan (talk) 00:56, October 30, 2014 (UTC)
Did not notice; do not care. If you insert a joke into the middle of even your own joke, the result is going to seem muddled. Spıke ¬ 01:31 30-Oct-14

edit Hump day

Whoops. Apparently our edits crossed paths. Normally the server catches that sort of thing.

Anyways, do you want to fix this, or should I? TheCan (talk) 04:53, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

I did it. Kept one quote where it had some pertinence and maybe the "Unit of Measurement" section is now worth keeping. TheCan (talk) 06:43, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

I didn't think the quotes were that good, but go wild! Spıke ¬ 11:13 5-Nov-14

edit Cartoon Network

I see you reverted my addition to the CN list. When you said "until it becomes good", it means that staff has to check the requirements to see if the article qualifies for Uncyclopedia. Right?

TotalDramaAndrew (talk) 22:20, November 5, 2014 (UTC)

That's right. I have been wrestling with moving your article to your userspace, at User:TotalDramaAndrew/Over the Garden Wall, as it has taken some time to develop. The review should be by someone other than me, but I can tell you right now what anyone will say: It starts with a question to the reader (what encyclopedia does that?) and the sections are completely lists (about which, you need to read UN:LIST, and also a sample of other Uncyclopedia articles (such as the ones shown on our main page) to see how they are structured. My tag of {{ICU}} runs for a week, at which any Admin might delete it, so it would be best to move this to the userspace address shown above whenever you begin to see the Move button. Spıke ¬ 22:43 5-Nov-14
Oh, my mistake, I didn't put {{ICU}} on this article at all! but Admin Simsilikesims now has, for the same reason I explain above. Spıke ¬ 22:59 5-Nov-14

edit How can i make it so that my category wont be deleted?(And to know that im making a game)

Yes im creating a game for games list on Uncyclopedia and I see every other UnGame got their own category how can I make it so my own UnGame gets its own category? (Unless i need to speak with someone first...) Thanks! -Randy295

I don't see why a game needs a category. The fact that the pages are subpages of a main page indicates that it is the same game. Perhaps Admin Romartus will know why and will undelete your category. Spıke ¬ 21:15 9-Nov-14

edit Come home, Spike! All is forgiven!


Look what we've got for you!

We can't help noticing that you've been elsewhere for the last two days, which is, to say the least, unusual.

You got joke-banned, and by 'crat at that, but really, he didn't mean it (or at least, he'd better not have meant it). Man, you da bomb, and we need you back -- somebody needs to dig in the dirt and block the worms! Snarglefoop (talk) 19:19, November 12, 2014 (UTC)

While you were away, Begege has been on fire! But I see you have caught up to him. Welcome back. Ye Blacke Adder (talk) 02:44, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

We have got several fine new writers, and I mean to include you in that; but Begege may be making the newbie mistake of dropping ponderous new ideas into articles without considering the articles as a whole. Nevertheless, he defends his edits or concedes; with this willingness to discuss, together we can get to the best result.
On Spiku, they called me Supiku when I visited, but apparently that is a regional variation. Spıke ¬ 03:05 13-Nov-14

I went and removed the VFD tags and added the applicable categories, but didn't touch their Talk pages because I was a-scared by the stern warning not to do so. TheCan (talk) 04:05, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit General glitchiness

Is it just me, or are the show/hide buttons for contents not working? Also, the logo override for the upper left is getting covered by the usual logo, and I can only see one of the images at VFP. Looks like the same problems as mentioned at Talk:Flying toasters. Ye Blacke Adder (talk) 13:26, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

Show/hide buttons and custom page logos require JavaScript; see also the Forum for past discussions on bugs in Table of Contents. We had a conversation 2-3 weeks ago in which people claimed Wikia's JavaScript is Numbah Two and I concluded that someone was doing some "engineering." That is probably what is happening today; give it a few hours and tell me if we can nail down the bug sufficiently that I should call it in. Spıke ¬ 13:31 13-Nov-14

Oddly enough, absolutely everything is fine when I am previewing this edit; the usual logo doesn't cover your picture and the two images above show properly. And the show/hide buttons work. Ye Blacke Adder (talk) 13:37, November 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit Who is Ducksoup?

Any ideas? Doesn't have a wikia address. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:40, November 14, 2014 (UTC)

Also does not have Wikia credentials, but somehow is deleting photos showing butt crack. Spıke ¬ 16:44 14-Nov-14
Could be a troll or a wikia helper. I will block the account. If the latter, they can un-block themselves. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:52, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Surely Wikia, or he could not have done the deletions. My last email to you noted that two of your articles have holes in them now. Spıke ¬ 16:57 14-Nov-14
I checked the user rights. None are listed. Checked Sannse's user rights, she is listed as staff and helper. Ducksoup is a blank. I will ask Sannse. I don't want to see outsiders start punching holes all over the articles here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:03, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Weird, it says his account was created nine days ago. Maybe he's an intern of some sort? -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:07 14 Nov 2014
It must be someone connected with Wikia. No history trace regards activities. I have contacted Sannse and blocked this Ducksoup account for now (though I guess that won't work). --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:22, November 14, 2014 (UTC)
Confirmed by Sannse that Ducksoup is Wikia staff. I have asked a review on Kim K's bum image and restored the two hacked out of Sex Scene. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:17, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

Star Trek's tense relationship with NBC censors is more Inside Baseball. The general reader will only see an ugly page as though defaced with Magic Marker. Also, don't create a page in Template: for use on a single (I hope!) article. Spıke ¬ 03:19 20-Nov-14
