New stuff at the end, please; I'll make it fit into the section organization after the topic dies down.

Is this about UnNews or UnNews audio? If so, talk to me here.

I don't routinely put a Watch on other people's talk pages. Nothing personal! I endorse keeping a conversation together on a single talk page, but a few days after the conversation ends, I will Unwatch you--the alternative being endless false alarms.


Anything typed here I may post-edit clerically. Typically, I combine parts of dialogues that took place on the other guy's talk page. Some conversations that pertain to the text of an article are moved to that article's talk page.

Meganew polices Aimsplode's personal pages

Wanna do something about this?

Meganew shouldn't be reverting peoples' edits to their own user pages. I think a ban is in order. --anonymous The preceding unsigned comment was added by 88.198.163.168 (talk • contribs)

(For "edits" above, read "blanking.") Check the ban log, Aimsplode; I gave him a full two hours. Then check his user page, where I expressed regret about having to decide in favor of either of you. Spıke ¬ 10:08 16-May-13

Joke comment on User talk:Llwy-ar-lawr

SPIKE, I thought we were on good terms now. If I make a joke comment and you realise that, can you repond with a joke instead of a serious comment please? (Refering to Llwy's talk page). Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:28, May 16, 2013 (UTC)

Sure. If you will stop interpreting my retaliatory poke as a "serious comment" and stop obsessing about whether it indicates a sea change in my opinion of you. Spıke ¬ 13:36 16-May-13

ScottPat's Forum

Just to let you know Spike that the reason I set up the forum was to find out whether there were any other active users on at the time of the attack when I first got on. Thanks for deleting it. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:00, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Indeed. If you see from the variety of names used in his automated change summaries by now, it is not a personal vendetta but a quest for attention from anyone. That forum would have been his ultimate reward. We changed the parameters to make the attack less notorious; also got help from Wikia. Spıke ¬ 11:00 17-May-13

I never thought of it as a personal vendetta. He/she changed who he attacked simply on the basis of which person last edited pages on the website. I was talking to Romartus about getting Wikia to do something about it so thanks.

Thanks to everyone who reverted during that night (well night for me anyway). It was a real team effort and when the Americans and Aussies were going to bed the Brits had just woke up to continue the reverts. I still think there is more to be reverted though. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:10, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

I put in a new rule that Anon gets only two edits per minute and the vandal seemed to lose interest. Later on Wikia came in and put in another rule trying to pattern-match the exact edits, but the guy will quickly see what's being filtered and adapt. Spıke ¬ 11:13 17-May-13
On further repair, view Special:RecentChanges and click "Hide patrolled edits". Spıke ¬ 11:14 17-May-13

Scott, at your current privileges, do you see when reviewing single edits, "Newer edit -> [Mark edit as patrolled]"? If so, then when undoing vandalism, you must walk back to the start of the vandalism and mark each edit. Otherwise the page will come back up in the report as needing patrolling, once we work through the (as of last night) at least 1800 edits. Although you corrected the page, someone will have to look inside to verify that this is the case; that is the most time-consuming thing about this repair. Spıke ¬ 11:13 17-May-13

Yes I do see mark as patrol however only on IP edits not on user ones and also if I revert something I can't mark it as patrol after only before. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:15, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Edits from users with Autopatrolled do not require patrolling; so your observation on "user ones" applies only to trusted users. Revert (versus Undo) automatically patrols the reverted edit, but doesn't let you provide explanation. Undo should be used to explain to user names and then you must manually patrol the undone edit. Each Admin here has been scolded on occasional lapses. Correcting the page is only half the job; you must record that you did, by clearing the patrol flag, so that others aren't led there only to verify that you already fixed it.
There is a JavaScript thingie on RecentChanges that patrols all edits. The problem is that the current list of vandal edits extends past the end of a RecentChanges listing. Spıke ¬ 11:23 17-May-13

I know that was quite annoying. Talking of vandals we seem to have one who is subtly writing absolute nonsence on IP pages and even made an article that Snippy put on QVFD. He/she writes half of the article in German. He/she seems to use multiple IP addresses. You can see his/her edits on Recent Changes as his summaries are random numbers and letters. Thought I'd let you know. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:28, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Don't understand what you mean by the last PS bit. Undo what part??? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:35, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

If you wish to answer his rant rather than just excise it as I did, feel free. Spıke ¬ 11:40 17-May-13

So you want me to answer a guy's rant because you don't want to do it yourself. (I'm sure that's not what you mean it's just I find it hard to understand why you want me to undo your undo). What's more is that you are encouraging me to respond to a vandal which you always warn me not to. Is this a joke in which you anticipate that I might want to reply to him? Confused still. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:45, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

PS Thanks for the 2500 one. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:45, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

This is not a joke. I would like a second pair of eyes on it (though Romartus has already seen and endorsed my one-month ban). I don't necessarily want you to answer his rant; I would like your opinion on whether my solution is the best. Spıke ¬ 11:48 17-May-13

Oh sorry, simpleton over here understands now. My misunderstanding. I will take a good look and post my opinion to you on this page in a few minutes. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:24, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

I like to think of myself as quite a just man and I hate to say it but I'm probably biased here but I'll try not to be.

  • Firstly saying that they are not cherry-picking editors is wrong. One of the editors from the other site tried to make me come to their site on another forum (can't remember what the forum was called but it was about everyone giving reasons to stay on Wikia) by claiming that you had brainwashed me even though I stated reasons as to why I was staying.
  • People on his site may go over there "without help" however the good writers' talents are wasted on that site's type of comedy. Instead of writing articles that have clever comedy in that you feel really pleased about writing at the end because it took a lot of work and now that has been payed off, they write a swear word and put in a picture of something sex related and call it funny. There minds are not allowed to mature.
  • Multiliteralist himself seems a decent writer (by looking on the other site (t.here are some decent writers on that site)) but on his talk page he claims that the point of Uncyclopedia (non-Wikia) is not to parody wikipedia as that aim was achieved a few years ago. As far as I was aware Uncyclopedia is meant to be a parody of wikipedia and if it is not then I wouldn't have joined and I don't see what other point it can have.
  • Romartus I don't think is biased here as he is not on that site at all so he seems to be in the same position as you and I. He has judged very fairly before although my encounters with him have been short and occasional. I think he thinks that you just went too far with deleting the comment.

To conclude (please do read the bits above, they are important): I think that a response to him would be justified. Perhaps a clever and well thought-out one. Maybe subtly asking him what the purpose of uncyclopedia really is. By deleting his comment you are just showing more tension.

I think Aleister is right that we need to draw the sites together. It reminds me of the Cold War which many people have said. The opposing idealogies are clever humour vs. cheap humour. Apart from that the sites should have the same aims and purpose. Both sides claim that the other site brainwashes their users and so on. By replying to their messages maybe we can start detente.

Please read and think about what I have said Spike. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:43, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

PS - I think that when you reverted him you should have put a comment in the summary and that is why Romartus has asked you to revert the revert.Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:43, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Do you agree with the above. Should we reply to him? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:17, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

I have restored his comment and have replied. Thanks for your input. Spıke ¬ 13:26 17-May-13

No problem any time you need help. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:33, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Nice reply. I'll support you if there is any opposition to you replying. What I really want to know is what he thinks the purpose of Uncyclopedia is if it is not to parody wikipedia. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:37, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

As an aside, if you were the victim of my brainwashing, one would think I would have done a complete enough job that you would not conclude so often that I must hate you.
Parodying Wikipedia is not our "purpose"--which indeed could have been done with a couple dozen articles--but our motif, a default style in which to write new articles. Thus the job is not done as long as life continues to unfold. This is indeed not a site for unbounded fiction writing or even unbounded comedy writing, but primarily for pages that support the gag that we are a legitimate encyclopedia, a legitimate dictionary, or a legitimate news service. ML has always chafed under this structure and has authored Forums asking for new namespaces that would accommodate his notions, from ranty expressions of personal opinion to descriptions of bowel movements. He is in the right place now; if he would only stop returning to, yes, sabotage this one. Spıke ¬ 13:43 17-May-13

I think we were right about the brainwashing and ML has been tricked himself: [Quotation deleted] Also brainwashing is fine by me as long as it is done in the right way.

By the way Spike, Al and I were wondering what your views are on the content warning and your reason behind those views. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 14:16, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Brainwashing implies dishonesty, or at least manipulation. (For example, throwing a long quote from Multiliteralist, at his sardonic best, in my face, to try to bias me against him, apart from his conduct? I already have a firm opinion of him, thank you.) The best example was MrN9000's visit to your talk page (for which he received my first Terms-of-Use ban), agreeing with you that the style of humor at the Fork was unacceptably childish, but promising that it would improve, through application of an unspecified process. I do not agree with brainwashing.
Regarding the Content Warning, are you kidding? I have stated my opinion repeatedly in the Forum and on Aleister's talk page. Spıke ¬ 17:17 17-May-13

The quote was a joke Spike. I was being sarcastic. I do believe in brainwahing, it's called education but then I believe in a strong state (American Nightmare!!!!).

The last bit was to confirm that you were against the content warning changing as you think that it is simply another episode that will go nowhere. (Am I correct?). Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:24, May 17, 2013 (UTC)

Managing UnNews

Do we mean to mislead users in this section UnNews:Newsroom#Managing UnNews? Should I replace the links to reflect the Lead Article 2 template? Zimbuddha Rev. Zim (Talk) Get saved! 02:04, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

The Newsroom is not a reference manual but essentially a big talk page. Don't change the record of what was discussed; at the time, those files were how to lay out the Front Page. The current method should be described somewhere, but not in the Newsroom. Right now, the wagon train of UnNews Chiefs just read the documentation in the templates themselves. Spıke ¬ 02:13 20-May-13

User:Trollman2000

Hi SPIKE, please block the above user. Thanks a lot. :) Graphium () 00:56, 24 May 2013

Sometimes a user's choice of username saves us from having to guess! However, in the case of this guy, I show no activity at all. What is the problem, please? Spıke ¬ 01:03 24-May-13
PS--I was willing for a while to believe that he was making edits faster than I could follow from my slow connection out in the woods. But still nothing. I ought not ban him simply based on the choice of names. Most registered users never make a single contribution (such as, alas, lowercase Spike, who registered in 2006). By the way, rather than contact your favorite Admin (for which I thank you), the best way to make these requests is at Ban Patrol, where whoever is on duty (and at the moment we do not have schedules) will satisfy it.

Anon protests something

SPIKE. Quite clearly a 40 year old virgin that lives in his Mum's basement and thinks he's the greatest wit since Monty Python's Life of Brian. Your not. By locking out a page and/or deleting it because you can't handle the challenge to your ego then I would suggest that this is not what Uncyclopedia is about. I suggest that you take your head out of your fat arse ( I bet you don't weigh less than 20 stone!!!) and fuck off to a place where you might be appreciated, Iran, North Korea, the Planet Zog, et al........... The preceding unsigned comment was added by 86.153.69.78 (talk • contribs)

As you sought the safety of an IP and did not explain what page has been locked and/or deleted, it is hard to explain why the action was taken, not that I'm inspired to do so. As you have seen fit to give me some armchair psychology, I will return the favor. "Your" too stupid to figure out "your" supposed to post to the bottom of talk pages; "your" convinced that "your" entitled to create anything you want and "your" under no obligation to make it fit into the goals of Uncyclopedia, and "your" supremely unpersuasive. It is not hard to imagine that you wrote some dreck that I (or someone else) saw fit to delete, and I am confident we will again if you write another. Because I am guessing "your" a very slow learner. Spıke ¬ 22:23 24-May-13

Gay Darkness and Template:Recent

Order rearranged

Hi, can you add my new article in this template? Thank you. --The Phantom of Gay Darkness (talk) 16:21, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

No, and in fact, I will not let it remain on the site, because it fails our notability policy. We are not for descriptions of fondling games that your high-school pals play, not even if it is good enough for our Italian analog. Spıke ¬ 16:48 25-May-13
At Nonciclopedia we also think that the page is shit. --87.16.185.124 18:47, May 25, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you for the input--In our Uploads Log, the author cited Nonciclopedia, probably to prove that the photos were not merely amateur photos of homosexual play (which they seem to be anyway). Separately, yesterday a contributor from Bulgaria insisted that his article about either a minor town official or his neighbor were not cyberbullying: The article's subject had been in a YouTube video! Spıke ¬ 18:55 25-May-13
We Nonciclopedians really love that article. Too much. --Eyry; (talk) 13:11, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

Are we meant to add new articles to this template as I haven't heard of it before and therefore haven't added any of my articles. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:34, May 25, 2013 (UTC)

There are no rules cast in stone for shameless self-promotion, but {{Recent}} (restricted to registered users) is a damned fine way to do it. You may post mine as well as your own, if you edit it. I took mine straight to VFH--where your comment (Make it longer) is a valid suggestion that I will try to act on later today. Spıke ¬ 18:55 25-May-13

How many articles do I put on {{Recent}} as I haven't put any of my 41 articles on there? I think it's probably sensible if I put my last one or two on. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:46, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, those would be, how-you-say, recent. Spıke ¬ 11:52 26-May-13
Cheers to you for grabbing a copy of Boxes. You have two options: Finish your work and substitute it for the thing being voted on (a Parliamentary violation but an Uncyclopedia stock dance-step), then lobby voters to flip--this would be an actual VFD Save, though no one is counting--or participate in the original's deletion (I won't delete the photos, seeing that there is a second page using them in your userspace), then move your version to mainspace later. Done this way, the page's change history is exclusively your edits. Spıke ¬ 11:52 26-May-13

Please count me in on deleting the original article. I am finishing the rewrite now and I do need those pictures however I have looked at Wikipedia and noticed that their article is titled "Box" singular so I shall move the article to "Box" mainspace. I have taken none of the article from the original as it was all bad however the pictures were very good so I nicked them and changed their captions. I will count this page as my own work as really it is and I am enjoying writing it and never realised how much fun I could have with a boring subject. I will probably VFH it as well as I really like it. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:34, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

I am not "counting you in on" anything unless you cast your vote--a vote that would, incidentally, be the decisive 5th vote. Box would eventually need a redirect at Boxes; while coding [[Boxs]] would specify it, "Boxes" might not. Separately, I hope my work at Turban satisfies your objections. Spıke ¬ 16:41 26-May-13
I have cast my vote now sorry I was in a rush to get on with my box article. I'll put in a redirect to it. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:47, May 26, 2013 (UTC)
PS - Actually scrap the "box" idea I'll call it "boxes" as my intro makes more sense that way. Please delete the current "boxes" so that later this evening I may put on my "boxes" article. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:49, May 26, 2013 (UTC)

If anything got ten votes these days, several of us would have heart attacks. Articles have recently gone onto the main page with six, though the guy responsible is decreasing the frequency of rotation and is sneaking in old articles that failed on a technicality, because several of us are sending up any crap that we crank out. Yours got two votes from ancient Uncyclopedians who rarely vote, and should do fine when the regulars get around to it. The obscurity of the subject may be an obstacle. Spıke ¬ 03:36 27-May-13

Anna Pavlova

Spike, congratulations with the feature of Ph.D.!

I finished my work on Anna Pavlova. Here is the article which is in main space and here is the one on which I worked. Can I just replace the main space version if mine is good? Thank you!

Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:24, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

I'm afraid I like the original better. The main motivation for hauling it to VFD--its absurdly long section heads--I always saw as a running joke. It has fabulous turns-of-phrases, such as "can only be described as indescribably dull." And "Bird Flu had nothing on this," meaning Bird Flu was tame compared to murder-by-attack-swan; also a mention of "Brian Stalin, brother of the other one." The article is full of gratuitous references--but none are on-the-level; each one pulls the reader's leg. Even at the end of Section 3, where the arithmetic is flagrantly wrong, the author has me hooked to see where he goes with it.
The mainspace article's first photo caption hints to the reader, "All the writing in this article is absurdly exaggerated--maybe you'd like to do the same thing." Your caption to the same photo tells the reader that the narrator is simply confused. If you can't do something funny with a hammer-and-sickle, for God's sake choose a different illustration! Using a confused narrator is trite unless it leads the narrator to absurd and funny conclusions, and even then, it's best if the narrator never realizes how confused he is. Your article's technique is to begin with the truth, then build a false extension that goes half the distance to funny.
Surely The Reverend was having a bad day: unexperienced, re-perform, "she deceased." And there are subtle problems in the use of tenses.
Detailed comments:
  • Sec. 1: A vague section, "Her father is unknown" and she entered "some kind of school"--and yet we know her exact thoughts.
  • Sec. 2: When I saw the first modern remake of Pink Panther, I was not satisfied, because it was not clear whether or not Steve Martin's "Inspector" was to be taken seriously. Is he a fool who inadvertently falls into the role of heroic crime-solver? or is he a genius and a computer whiz? In your article, too, I ask: Is Anna an inept dancer whose errors inadvertently transform dance? or does she "invent a new ballet technique," which implies that her career is deliberate? The answer seems to be neither: She disobeyed--and thereby found career success? And the "Communist....government did not respect Jewish people." No kidding! Are you again explaining to the reader what was funny about the joke you just told? (A later sentence that oddly trails behind the joke is: "The medicine at that time was not very well developed.")
  • So Anna purchased some swans; I presume to study how to imitate them in dance. Me, if I studied swans, the only thing I would learn is summed up by the phrase, "like crap through a goose," a lesson I am relieved that Anna didn't take to the stage. We never follow this purchase anywhere, however; and you drop me in mid-air with the final: "The fate of these birds is unknown."
  • Sec. 3: We don't know who Victor is. And we only guess why he had her cremated. Why do I read this encyclopedia if it so often does not know the facts, and so rarely transforms that ignorance into humor?
Your article has much more fidelity to history than the mainspace article. And that is the least of my concerns. Spıke ¬ 20:23 27-May-13
I certainly have had a bad day, but I haven't yet read this one. As such, I believe I am absolved of all crimes. Unless, of course, I have missed something elsewhere, in which case I have a noose at the ready. Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:54, May 27, 2013 (UTC)
You are absolved and I apologize. My first draft of the above held out the possibility that Anton had not submitted the page to you for proofreading, then I minced words. You surely would have caught the above non-words. And may yet. Spıke ¬ 23:03 27-May-13

Well, what I hate the most in the main space version is completely irrelevant reference to communism when Anna did not do anything for the revolution and left Russia in 1912. Mass killing was not connected to Pavlova neither. It seemed to me that the author just wanted to make up some random stuff and, of course, as Pavlova was Russian, he thought of communists, Stalin, vodka and mass-killing.

Thank you for very-detailed review (actually you have covered the whole Pee Review table). As I am simply re-writing the article, I decided to keep the first image. It will tell to the reader that if by any chance he thinks that Anna was a revolutionary/politician (like the previous author thought), then they are wrong.

Her father's part is deliberate as well as the swans. The joke was (and that is partly a parody of Wikipedia) that we don't know who her father is but we know that he dies when she is 2. How is that? The swan fact is true, she actually did have swans but probably as simple pets. What I do, is make a reference to the fact that her most famous role was of the Dying Swan. And of course like any other artists she wants to improve. The fate of these birds is unknown: this is not because we don not know the fact, this is an implicit joke. To look how the swan dies, you have to kill him.

And you are wrong about not having another reference to it. Read closely about her death. Her last words are real. Here I contradict the history and say that several minutes before her death, Anna re-performed (for the last time) her Swan role. And she did it better than during her lifetime, c'est-à-dire deceased.

Her talent was great but I made fun of her character and technique. The joke about the prompter's box is my favorite. I was sorry to see, while reading the previous version closely, that I did not like any jokes there and I explained why. The only joke I kept without re-phrasing was about the "New Zealand" dessert.

Finally, yes, fidelity to history is my technique and this is how you can actually characterize all my work. What I basically do in all my articles, is I read a Wikipedia one first (or any other encyclopedia) and find facts that can be funny but are true. Then I either present them in a funny way, or change the truth a little bit. That's what I call "Wrong Logic" on my user page.

Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 06:57, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I have no problem with recourse to real facts (I did exactly that in Cadillac, Michigan). It is not the strategy but the execution that is the problem.
Funny! when I think of Russia, I too think of communists, Stalin, vodka, and mass-killing! What do you mean by saying the original article is not so much based on the facts?!
PS--When listing a redirect on QVFD, there is a special format you need to use so that we don't follow the redirect by mistake and delete the actual page. Spıke ¬ 10:36 28-May-13
I think, if I may put in a comment here, that Anton may mean that the article refering to the Russian being communist is not funny because it simply is no longer funny just to call Russians "Communists" anymore as it has already been done too many times, in the same way that most articles about Germans (presumably) claim that they were Nazi supporters. It is not funny calling Anna Pavlova communist unless it is backed up (I haven't read the article so I don't know if it is backed up). Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:20, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
I agree with that, and led the crusade for Uncyclopedia articles to stop portraying U.S. states as Soviet satellites. Calling someone "slutty" or "gay" without basis is the first move of many new Uncyclopedians, and is unfunny for the same reason. PS--Read the above on QVFD; I declined to execute a request of yours last week for the same reason (also because I had already explained this to you); please re-file it. Spıke ¬ 11:29 28-May-13
Sorry Spike but where do you want me to read specifically and is the request just on QVFD or also on your talk page? Last week was a long time ago and I can't remember what article it was. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 12:05, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

What Scott said is exactly my opinion. And the main problem with the original article was that it was impossible to back up their point of view as Anna was not in any way connected to Stalin and the revolutionaries. They also talked about "Vodka-fuelled Decembrist". This was the moment I understood that I had to re-write the page. I think the author in his article just gave us his 'romantic' vision of a Russian ballerina. Well, my emotions after reading it were anger, disgust and sadness.

I will delete parts which you call "explaining the joke you just said" and I will try to rephrase something. But if you don't accept my humor in this article, then I think I cannot do more. Should I just delete it? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:17, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I did it. Could you tell me if the article is better now? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:47, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, the article is better now. Also, the job of Admin does not include ordering Uncyclopedians to "just delete" stuff he doesn't prefer. However, I insist that the mainspace article is a damned fine read, even if it does misstate Pavlova's relation to the Communist Party. You cannot remove an established article from mainspace without a vote of VFD. You could proceed in one or more of the following ways:
  1. Edit the offensive stereotypes out of the mainspace article
  2. Devise a way that the two articles could coexist in mainspace (such as with a disambiguation page) (tough but not impossible given that both are biographies)
  3. Renominate Anna Pavlova on VFD and propose its replacement with your article. (I will waive the 1-month rule, given that your alternative makes the question different, but will cast 1 vote to Keep.)
  4. Seek additional review. Zim ulator supported the existing article on VFD, with qualifications; Romartus did not vote, but has a lot of knowledge of history and culture.
Also, please do not demand that Uncyclopedia articles are defective because they don't treat your nation with truth and respect. When we want that attitude, we turn to ScottPat. Spıke ¬ 16:36 28-May-13
Well my rule in life is that if a joke is funny no matter how offensive it is it's got to be said. I attempt to balance my jokes that offend other countries with many jokes that offend my country and my views. Of course I do not actually agree with these offensive jokes. Spike I'm still confused about your request for me to re-file a QVFD article, I can't find what article you are talking about and when I requested it for QVFD. Thanks.

I saw you got your wings clipped for a whole month at WP as User:Apteva. Too bad. Why don't you just edit using your other "alternative" account? Those admins just don't understand a good get even scheme transcending websites, do they? What a bunch of jack-asses.

Thank you, ScottPat, but I can defend myself and it might be better that I do. I've reviewed the Wikipedia pages and see no reason to think that I am she, except that she is persistently adversarial (down to insisting by email that a gender-specific pronoun be excised from the Wikipedia ban notice), and so is one of her opponents, who came to a random wiki and took a random guess. Anon above has been banned for two weeks for trolling here--having convinced me that we will not be losing the world's next Shakespeare--even though he is trolling the wrong guy.

Sunny D

Hey Spike, do you remember this edit by any chance? And more specifically, why you chose that name? Ta -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 21:17, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I certainly chose it at random, as I don't know any Delvecchios personally. It may be that I had heard of a Sunny/Sonny Delvecchio and subconsciously the two names struck me as going together. I noticed that Anon repeatedly struck out the name this week, tearing gaping holes in the page. If he or his parole officer object, any other name would do equally well.
Separately, of the 6 obscene images you cite in Forum:Content warning, round 3, I have deleted 4; one is ambiguous and one is not easily worked around except by deleting a Featured Article written by an Admin.
Also, Anon was voting multiple times at VFH today. On one page, I counted one of his four half-votes, then banned him. One of your guys was by more recently expunging the entire transaction from the record out of "privacy concerns." An IP gets privacy? Can't your guys state what is going on, even if it's just to say he's been banned across Wikia? Spıke ¬ 21:33 28-May-13
  1. It seems my correspondent believes someone he knows added the name to target him specifically. I'll just change it to Diabetes or something
  2. I've replied some on the forum about content warnings
  3. You will have to link me to the diffs etc for me to look at that, I don't know anything about it -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 22:05, May 28, 2013 (UTC)
This last is DaNASCAT in the Block Log today at 18:41 UTC, concerning anonymous edits to UN:VFH/EU. It only cost nominee half a vote for featuring his article, and I don't mind the outcome either, but the explanation that there is a "privacy concern" is cryptic. Spıke ¬ 23:05 28-May-13
IPs get privacy under certain circumstances. DaNASCAT didn't remove everything, just the IP from the history - we always try to remove the minimum when this sort of thing comes up. And I think "privacy concerns" says it all - someone contacted us to say they had concerns about their privacy after mistakenly making their IP visible. There's nothing more I could add to that without raising privacy concerns :) -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 23:27, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Star Trek

Do you know anything about Star Trek? I moved the Star Trek article to Star Trek: The Original Series and made the original Star Trek article into a disambiguation page about the series. I can make some things funny but I fall flat on my face on other things. I also need a better introduction and origin of the show that isn't just a copy-paste of the TOS article. InMooseWeTrust (talk) 21:53, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

I can do something with this, but I wonder if you are done with it. Star Trek is more than a disambiguation page but there is still some repetition between this and the TOS page. Quotations in italics are not done any more, not even at UnNews. The "re-launch" movie is a separate phenomenon from TOS, though it is described in the same article. It might deserve its own page, and the movie just coming out now needs to be added.
Over on Turban, I don't like it that you replaced my unnumbered heads with numbered sections that appear in the Table of Contents. It makes the article seem too listy--the problem with this being that it invites every reader to document turbans in his own country--and what you said about Bangladesh seems to me not to be worth the additional move in the direction of a list. Spıke ¬ 00:27 29-May-13

Tsar or Czar

I am intrigued to know whether Americans spell "Tsar" as "Czar." As your VFD comment has question marks next to the word "Tsar" and the article is named Russian Czar. Just interested to know that's all. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:13, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

There can be no orthodox American spelling for a Russian word. In the only context where it has been imported into American English (a bureaucrat with fearsome powers, notably the President's policymaking assistants in positions that avoid the requirement for Senate confirmation), the spelling I am familiar with is "czar." My American Heritage Dictionary has an entry for "czar" but lists both others as acceptable variants. "Usage. Czar is the most common form in American usage and virtually the only one employed in the [figurative] senses....But tsar is preferred by most scholars of Slavic studies...with reference to one of the Russian emperors." Spıke ¬ 20:28 29-May-13

Over here I think Tsar is most common. That is how I write it as well. However which ever way it is written I think you will agree that the article refered to' usage of all three spellings of Tsar make it unencyclopedic and poorly written. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:34, May 29, 2013 (UTC)

As with our earlier discussion of American vs. British, picking a spelling clearly unsuitable for the subject of the page, and especially inconsistency, distracts the reader and pops the encyclopedia balloon. In that article, the reader notes that the name of the trio is not the name of the member the trio is named for, hence my question mark. Spıke ¬ 20:49 29-May-13

Gravity Falls

Check it out, I made another new page since a while. Maybe you should see if I did it right. --Platypush (talk) 01:01, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Looks like an Uncyclopedia article. Gets a little listy at the end. Invoking Oscar Wilde delivers no humor and was a mistake. Assuming there is such a show, the article is about something real, so it's okay. But I'm unfamiliar with the show and can't review your article further. Perhaps ask Simsilikesims, our resident TV-watcher; or ScottPat if it's on the Telly instead. Spıke ¬ 08:45 30-May-13
I don't recognise the show. Unlike most European countries Britain has enough money to make its own TV so very little US TV is broadcast on British TV apart from Simpsons episodes from about 8 years ago and the Big Bang Theory.

Nottingham

This is a hard decision. Barry Chuckle is a comedic character off a well-known and loved child comedy series called the "Chuckle Brothers." Anon seems to have replaced Nick Clegg with Barry Chuckle to emphasise how Anon thinks Nick Clegg is an idiot however the joke doesn't work now as the reader doesn't realise that Barry is meant to be Nick Clegg. Also the word "piff" is Northern slang for the word "sick" (strained accent on the "i": "siick) which is South London slang. Both mean "very good." I think that piff should be used as Nottingham is in the North. I'll change it now and you can see whether you agree or not. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:16, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

On a side note this is an awful article. It has far too many lists, too few images and not enough content in paragraphs. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:18, May 30, 2013 (UTC)

Cotswold Olimpick Games

Have you seen the wikipedia featured article on their front page today? I went on it to do some research on one of my articles and thought I'd gone on Uncyclopedia by mistake and had to check the logo. Someone needs to do a parody article on it. I would do it if I collaborated as I am stretched out with lots of different articles at the same time and not too much time to work on them. Would you like to collaborate with me in writing: Cotswold Olimpick Games? (The Cotswolds are a region in the South-West Midlands of England).

PS - We could also get the Reverend to collaborate with us on this one as he's from the North of England (Derbyshire I think) and probably knows more about Northern English culture. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 15:37, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

I've rewritten the Intro. It's your turn. Photo of drunken riot, please. Spıke ¬ 16:09 31-May-13
Ok. Drunken riot picture for main picture at start of article right? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:07, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
PS - I don't get this line: "This town is in the Cotswolds of England, probably, hence the name, probably." You seem to be unsure which is not encyclopedic but I am obviously missing some joke as I know you wouldn't do that. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:09, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
Also I think the template at the start ruins the comedy effect so we probably ought to put it at the end of the article. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:10, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

The second "probably" is from Wikipedia. The first "probably" is to continue the joke, and also because Athol (a joke I adapted from a joke concerning Athol, Massachusetts) is probably not in the Cotswolds at all. Indeed I think uncertainty is usually trite, and if you have a better approach, substitute it. The reason for the template is that there is no reason to do this article (or to try to get it onto the Main Page today) except to ridicule Wikipedia, and we ought to note somehow that that's what we're doing. Spıke ¬ 17:16 31-May-13

Fine but when it is done we can move it to the bottom, please. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:30, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
Also background info on Cotswolds (hilly region named after the Cotswolds hills): For many years it has been a very lowly populated area of England with just agriculture for industry. However recently many "Conservative" politicians and celebraties from Surrey and London have moved there because they want to live in traditional, Edwardian countryside of old England however the rest of the country laughs at these celbrities as they pretend they manage large farms over there but just employ others to them. The accent of the region has changed from West-Country to very posh upper class. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:30, May 31, 2013 (UTC)
Just to let you know I have done "Origins" and I think we should make an events bit so that I can put down some stereotypical English sports that definitely wouldn't feature in the International Olympics. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:10, May 31, 2013 (UTC)

When the job of spoofing Wikipedia is done, the template won't have to be there at all. ({{Wikipedia}} usually suffices.) And the article hardly has to be as long as the Wikipedia article, or ridicule every passage from the Wikipedia article, if there is no easy way to spoof it. You shouldn't write stuff that is only funny when held up next to the Wikipedia page. Spıke ¬ 19:09 31-May-13

I am neither citing any specific parts nor "warning" you. As I just told Romartus, whose decision it would be, the biggest point of this exercise is for you to bang it out today, while its counterpart is still on Wikipedia's corresponding main page. After that, few people are going to stumble on it. Spıke ¬ 19:40 31-May-13

Did you put this quote in or is it from the original wikipedia article? "More recently, the historian and secretary of the Cliff Dover's Games Society, Francis Burns, has suggested that the gross wrestling scene between two hairy, naked men in Borat "reflects the wrestling at the Games."" If that is from the original wikipedia article than please can we ask Wikipedia to merge with us as we both seem to be aiming for comedic articles.

I have never heard of the sport either, but mine was a verbal conundrum, which is better than a shrug of the shoulders. I won't do Romartus's job for him. It may be that we weren't quick enough. Another 24 hours and our attempt to spoof the Wikipedia main page becomes irrelevant and this one would have to wait its turn on VFH. Spıke ¬ 13:23 1-Jun-13

PS - I'm having a few problems with Uncyclopedia. Sometimes when I press save to edit it randomnly tells me that I'm not logged on (as it just has done) and I have to log back on and re-save it again. This has happened multiple times over the past few days. Are you having the same problem? Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:29, June 1, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I am; also, rollback tells me I don't have permission, and sometimes deleting a page doesn't work but calls the same form back. The error message on Save says it's a Wikia server failure, and I believe it. Stuff happens.

Two more small problems with your edits: In "playground bullying," I just meant to imply that moderns had used the Games for political correctness, not go on to say anything actual about bullying; and on land subdivision ("cricket"), I think my contrast between rich and poor was better than your contrast between rich and rich Tories. Spıke ¬ 13:35 1-Jun-13

Concerning the first, we English like to have a joke that our playground bullies are some of the finest in the World (probably the same for most countries) so I think that is funnier than Political Corectness gone mad. There are two ways the article could have gone: posh, well-disciplined festival (Norman-style) where everyone sits round drinking tea or drunken rabble, not very PC festival (Saxon-style). I think the article leans more to the latter and I think we should stick with that. Concerning the second as long as there are some jokes about rich Tories, I'm happy but if you think your one was better here go ahead and change it. Thanks.

Romartus nominated this for us after adding many pictures. If it goes through I'm sure we'll be satisfied if we split the feature point between us.

I changed "the French were going to attempt to gatecrash the featival" to "the French aimed to crash the gates"--a simplification that seems to me to have the same meaning. The Puritan comment was at the end of a paragraph digressing to Massachusetts, where my punch line lampoons current Massachusetts immigration rhetoric. The comment spoiled it to append a seemingly serious political commentary about which side is "sane." Spıke ¬ 11:18 2-Jun-13

Fair enough. Gate crashing a party is a more metaphorical term for running in and spoiling the party not literally breaking the gates but I'm not sure whether that is a phrase in US-English.

I've false started several times on this. I used the Peter Parker story in Daily News, but I'm too much of a fanboy when it comes to Spidey to write it well. My ex told me once I'd spent more time explaining what they did wrong with the Tobey MacGuire movies then the movies themselves lasted, yet I've still watched the first two over and over again.
I'm also slightly short on time. I've been working 50+ hours a week at the moment. I only see pages if an email pops in about a change. Hence my volume of writing has dried up like spittle on a hot stove.                               Puppy's talk page09:34 04 Jun 2013

This is Anton

Hello, Spike!

I hope we two don't have a Cold War because of someone called Anna Pavlova. If my worst fears are not true, then could you tell me if I may improve on my article, if you please? I know I have asked you the same thing several sections above but you still seem to have several comments because of the comment you put on my talk page.

Thank you! Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:18, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry! I didn't realize there were comments pending! I have an uncommonly fine Internet connection, but am very distracted just now because there is a baseball game (and 1500 schoolchildren) occurring in front of me. You are of course welcome to continue working on your article. I stated that it should not replace the main article, but there are many ways it could coexist with it, and this was the last word I read at Forum:Anna Pavlova. Spıke ¬ 16:02 6-Jun-13

Well, there was only one comment: a response to yours about how my article is less funny then the other one. Also, I did not notice that there actually was a forum about Anna Pavlova before I put the comment on your talk page. I will discuss the topic there. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:12, June 6, 2013 (UTC)

Cat the Colourful on DungeonSiegeAddict510

Ok, firstly I want you to know that I think of you as a 'nice bud' and have no hate against you. But since you were opped, I've been stalking this side with fear. And I know that it was once my idea to op you in the past, but this side has turned, sorry for my language, into total Auschwitz.

I saw this a while ago. Care to explain that bit more? I know that Denza might be a bit stupid, he visits our side as well, but the reasons for the ban were just ridiculous. Just because he wasted your time doesn't mean you have to ban him. I'm pretty sure that I'll get banned for expressing my opinions as well, but dude, if this place turned into something like this, I don't want to even visit here.

And once again, I mean no harm to you, but seriously dude, chill with the bans. I know that I'm way "lower-ranked" than you but us worms have stuff to say and complain as well. And that Denza-case isn't the only stupid thing happened over here. With love, Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 09:37, 7 June, 2013 (UTC)

Please stop! We never bother you on your site so you don't bother us on our site. What are you trying to prove? Both sites are the same as each other virtually, so except it. "Two houses alike in dignity" is the quote I use. If we actually all joined up we would realise we were all just as good, bad as each other. It's just some silly politics that no one cares much about that keeps us apart. For that reason we do not bug you so do not bug us! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 09:52, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
HAH! I'm just protecting my bud! SPIKE banned Denza so this is now personal! And I want an answer from SPIKE, not from you, please. Altough I understand your logic, you really don't bug us, we shouldn't bug us, but, you know, I'm like on both on these sites. I joined Uncyclopedia on 2010 when everyone was working together so I have the right to say if something annoys me. On both sites. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 09:57, 7 June, 2013 (UTC)
Denza has reappeared here, I saw him vote. You know all admins go mad? It's a secret. When you get a ban stick, a straitjacket comes free. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:59, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
Sorry Cat the Colourful, didn't realise it was personal. My bad. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:03, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not too pissed off to do anything like that Romartus. :) Next time something bad happens I propably make a forum, but now I don't see any point on doing that. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 10:19, 7 June, 2013 (UTC)
Ok..let us hence go forward and 'write stuff' to paraphrase Mordillo. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:26, June 7, 2013 (UTC)

Did someone say my name? But in all seriousness, please do not bring up the Denza252 hacking scandal/incident/thing, it brings up painful memories. Yes, I edit on both sites, and despite whatever I say on IRC, I'm neutral to the civil war. Anyways, what did I do on the fork that prompted you to call my old name? (In fact, I had originally planned to use the name Denza242, but something misfired, and I had to end up using Denza252) So to summarize, don't involve me in the conflict, don't bring up the hacking scandal, and if you want to say something to me, say it on my talk page. And yes, I acknowledge that there have been quite a few bans, but we are also slowly improving the quality of the website. With best regards --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 15:33, June 7, 2013 (UTC) (No longer Denza252, but DSA510)

Cat, I have known you for a while, and you are neither so lettered nor so sinister as to bring up "Auschwitz," nor so interested in details as to cite a specific edit and demand explanation. Nor have you been a part of the year-old campaign to cherry-pick edits as a diagnosis of the real me. Consequently, although Denza is no doubt your friend, I think you are being fed ideas and used as a tool. Simsilikesims is having much more of her time wasted than mine with Denza's need for babysitting. Denza's adequate patrolling sense, in my opinion, is far outweighed by his chronic tendency to violate every rule he detects (that is why to bring up the past), and announce the violation as loudly as possible; and the drama in each of his Change Summaries risks driving away much better writers. Spıke ¬ 16:05 7-Jun-13
Hmm, I have chatted Cat in IRC once or twice, but I don't see any reason that he would bring up my specific ban. If this is trying to get me to come to the fork(on Cat's part), I have already said:
  1. I want to be neutral in the whole civil war
  2. I edit on both sites, so trying to recruit me is a bit pointless

Now, you may have just been trying to support me, but (and don't take this the wrong way) I don't need your help right now, though the thought is appreciated. Now, for SPIKE. I am trying to improve on my change summary, and other habits. The comments were meant with no malicious intent. I am not the best at phrasing things, so I often come off as A: Blunt, B: Insultive, C: Annoyingly oblivious, and D: Suckupish. Now, it may not seem like it, but I am trying to improve. Now, don't expect it to be like flipping a switch, but rather, more gradual. Again, (to cat, and others in general) don't bring me in out of the blue without possibly writing a message on my talk page. With best regards, --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 16:23, June 7, 2013 (UTC) (None of the previous was meant with malicious intent)

Hmm. Denza... It is indeed true that I have talked you only few times on IRC and hardly even know you. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to know you more. I mean, we're both the same age. You're just 2 months (or was it one?) months older than me, so that makes you part of the 'youth'-gang with me, you and SirPeasewhizz (Karem98). When I saw your ban, and the reasons for it, I bursted out laughing. I know you messed up with VFD and QVFD-stuff, but, instead of a ban, a nice conversation could have been used. SPIKE, I am in no way used as a tool, it was my own idea to come here and have a chat. Mr-ex777 suggested that I should just vandalize this site, but I see no reason for it, as that is just childish and stupid. My own idea, ok? I am not a tool. OK? I also want to edit the both sites, but your weird urge to ban everything really scares me. And this is my own thinking. I really do understand if you think I'm 'being used', because there are many others on the other site who are scared. But unlike some, I don't see you as a brutal dictator.

...

That sounded bad.

Anyways, I was just protecting Denza, and I, myself, also hope Denza stops doing stupid contributions (sorry man). I hope we're ok, I was just pretty shocked. But do not ever, NEVER EVER, think me as a tool. I'm an independent warmachine. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 10:20, 9 June, 2013 (UTC)

No Denza lol of course you can be neutral on the both sites, I try it sometimes too, but I have such a busy life and I have no time for both always. This was in no way an attempt to prevent you from editing both sites, as both are equal to me. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 11:03, 9 June, 2013 (UTC)
Please could everyone just calm down a bit. I have been involved in the politics of this site quite a few times and have enjoyed a fruitful argument here and there but this whole thing is futile please just stop bringing up to quote Denza, "the whole civil war." As far as I can see the war that was fought (if it was even that) happened a long time ago and I'm not sure where Denza got the concept that it was still on from but I don't think this argument is helping as it may spread to others who were not involved in the fork such as myself that the fork has provoked some "war" that continues to this day and that we must carry on attacking each other with spiteful comments. There is no reason for war and there is no war now please just leave it alone and write some funny articles. The only way in which we can continue as a succesful parody site is to unite under one "flag" and support each other. Thank you. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:03, June 9, 2013 (UTC)
Umm what? I'm already calmed down, as you can see in the sentence 'I hope we're ok'. So I basically don't see the point of your comment, especially on the part The only way in which we can continue as a succesful parody site is to unite under one "flag" and support each other which is pretty obvious, don't you think? Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 12:51, 10 June, 2013 (UTC)
Maybe we should take this to a forum... But anyhow, my hands are off this topic! I can defend myself, I believe that you can work out editing on both sites, (I hope that you do so), and that we can help each other out when necessary. As I have said again and again, I think 2 sites are pointless (save for a cheap 2 Uncycs 1 User joke (which even by my standards, is tasteless)). So yeah. (Another option is to take this to my talk page, as I am the user in question). Cheers! --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 15:32, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
I was simply commenting on Denza's comments on the fact that there is a "Civil War" your point about uniting under one flag being pretty obvious is therefore wrong and I was not attcking anyone just asking everyone to stop.

Upload malfunction

Hello, long time no "talk". I hope all is well and youre fave teams are kicking the dugouts dry of the other teams. On the code, I noticed my name on uploads and checked, as I haven't uploaded anything today, and it said I uploaded a video. The vid is on the Friday (song) page which I did look at, but the vid at the bottom has been there since the page was written. A ghost is in the machine somewhere. Just wanted to make you aware of it, and it's a strange one. I hope my ghost uploads some really good stuff on its own, and I await it's next move. Aleister 12:37 7-6-'13

Yes, the Abuse Filter has been misfiring, as noted in a recent section earlier on this page. There is nothing about you in the Abuse Filter Log since 3-Jun, when you edited User talk:PuppyOnTheRadio and referenced ATS. The Abuse Filter is designed to fire even if you edit a line that already had an external reference on it, without adding or changing the external reference; that is the best I can do with the tools. It is clearly a malfunction, as the warning remains at Special:RecentChanges but the event is not in Special:AbuseLog. It does not put points on your driving record. On future such errors, or for this one, what you should do is view the diff report of the single edit, capture the URL that called up the report, verify the malfunction as I describe just above, and post that the Abuse Filter malfunctioned to User talk:Furry, a Wikipedia volunteer who is beneath the covers in terms of permissions and of technical expertise. Spıke ¬ 13:02 7-Jun-13
I miswrote if I typed in Abuse Filter, this was on "Uploads". An uploads malfunction. All I did was open the page and suddenly the bottom vid shows up as me uploading it. If only ATM's were that easy. Aleister minutes later
Sorry, I inferred that you had been tripped up by a bug I know of. I don't know of this other bug. Not just the uploads log but the media file show you as the uploader of this YouTube video, used on no page. I would delete it but will let it stay to preserve evidence of the bug.
If we are now allowing not just external links but videos on pages, it is an awful development for this website, as inserting a TV show will always be much easier than writing original, funny stuff. It may be that a new capability was added and that it doesn't work correctly yet. If you deny making this upload, and are sure you were clean and sober at the time, would you please take this report straight to Furry for investigation? Spıke ¬ 13:23 7-Jun-13
Not to be confrontational (p-please, d-don't do an-anything t-too hasty) but I'm going to have to be with Aliester on this one. I have been lurking in the recent edits page, and I have noticed one or two edits mistakenly tagged as Link to external website again, I'm not trying to offend your admin status, but I just wanted to put my, er what is the term? Two cents in? I think so, so yeah... --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 15:38, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
Ps, I also think that original humor > external cruft, but sometimes, external stuff can help, but thats not always the case. --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 15:40, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
Spike, no, not only did I not upload it but the video has been on the page since it was written. I visited the page. And what in holy monkeys are you talking about, we've used videos since I've been here. I've used them only when and where they totally fit with the page, except for a couple singers where they are there for the readers enjoyment once they read the page. I used one of the marrying Brown Rice page because it's the pages soundtrack. On the well-oiled bird page that Guildy and I did it fits so perfectly that it could have been designed for the page. The one we are talking of here, the Bob Dylan rendition of Friday, I can't recall 100 percent but the original author of the page put it up I think, because it goes along with the page. The page is about that song, the song in the video. And no, I did not upload it today. Does the date on the page say I did (there's no record of my inserting it onto the page today, check its history). If the code says I did upload it today please keep the page where it says I did up and it can be categorized under "miracles" or something. Aleister 00:17 8-6-'13

The Great Monkey Civil War

This section seems to be a result of Spike's tagging the article with {{ICU}}.

Edit, get somebody else to edit it, or delete it. "Too much about monkey's ejaculating." I wrote it twice for a circular timeline. Whatever though. I honestly couldn't give less of a fuck about this website and your stupid ass. If you have a problem with what I wrote, fix it or delete it. This isn't fucking homework, and I'm not going to meticulously edit everything I write to fit your standards. By the way, I've seen worse shit on this website than what I wrote. IE: Giant or TourettesThese articles aren't funny, and the giant page was homophobic. Also it's something somebody may look up. Like I said before, my article only serves as an easter egg for somebody on the monkey page. So fuck you, your standards, and your advertisements.

PS: I came all over your mom when she came on my dick last night when we all came together in a group cum session. Are those enough cum references for you, you cum guzzler? The preceding unsigned comment was added by Chewkamatic (talk • contribs)

Thank you for your rant. I won't ban you for it, or even delete your article when the tag expires on 15-Jun, but I am certain that any other Admin will do so. If you log onto a spoof encyclopedia and declare you can't be bothered to "meticulously edit everything" to be a spoof encyclopedia article, then have a nice life; and I hope you are more willing to meticulously drive home. Whatever. Spıke ¬ 19:22 8-Jun-13
On a side note, I've seen references to them everywhere, including in above poster's rant, but I haven't ever seen any adverts on here. Is there a problem with my computer, or are they invisible to registered users? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 19:30, June 8, 2013 (UTC)
Registered users can disable them ('My preferences/Gadgets/Interface gadgets). They are also easy to defeat with custom local CSS. But that's only for Uncyclopedians who don't regard working with others as "fucking homework." To elaborate on the above, Chewkamatic on his talk page was willing to "consider my suggestions" on his next creation, and I used {{ICU}} to gently suggest that he needed to consider them on the current one. Spıke ¬ 19:42 8-Jun-13
To give an alternate answer to Reverend P Pennyfeather, Chrome has multiple adblock extentions, as well as do not track extentions, which make you not see the advertisers, and the advertisers not see you. Also, I'm wary about some of the new users who have joined, like the one who made the pleasant section below, and that Godaddy guy, as well as the person who made the rant that we see above us. Now, I may just be paranoid, but maybe... its an impending attack? --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 01:16, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
Are you paranoid too??? New users, malicious new users, desperate-for-attention new users, and simply-clueless new users, are a continual presence. From time to time we get our Master Editors, and we never know who is who. I have no reason to believe that the recent batch is either related nor emissaries of a single web site, though there are many ways that one could coordinate such an attack. The answer is to simply keep doing what we do and "assume good faith" as the jerks at Wikipedia say. Spıke ¬ 01:23 10-Jun-13

  • Newbies don't have to make a signature file.
  • Newbies don't have a Move button.

Rollback for Graphium

Hi SPIKE, could you give me the rollback rights? I'm not too sure how things work here, but on Wikipedia, vandal fighters with a good sense of what to revert and have made sufficient reverts are granted this right upon request. And, I would like to use the above-mentioned reason for this request. Thanks. Graphium () 16:23, 11 June 2013

I am not able to dispense teh Rollbackz. Ask ChiefjusticeDS to read this and decide. You have not necessarily done enough here to merit it, but what you have done is of high enough quality to merit it.

Other rollback and JavaScript questions

When you have asked for a diff of more than one edit to a page, the button is not present. What you must do is enable JavaScript and include the following line in your uncyclopedia.js file:
 importScript( "User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/recentchanges.js" );

If you have a form of the report in which all edits to a given page (regardless of the time or editor) are grouped together, there will be a button that patrols all of them. Spıke ¬ 20:51 11-Jun-13

There is no risk to having a personal JS file (unless you screw up). It contains code to be executed every time Uncyclopedia renders a page for you to view. Yes, you can have both. Just look at all the crap I have in mine. Spıke ¬ 21:34 11-Jun-13

Images or whatever...

Hello. I was just wondering if it's possible to add an image to Uncyclopedia from a tablet (Like a stupid-ass Kindle...) Just wondering. The Pirate PrincessCutlassPrincessX 21:14, June 12, 2013 (UTC)

The page Special:Upload that you use to add an image includes an explorer window that you can use to identify any image file on the device from which you are browsing Uncyclopedia. So if you are using a tablet to gain access to Uncyclopedia, you can upload an image provided you can identify the device and the filename on the tablet. (I didn't think vanilla Kindles could surf the web.) Otherwise, you must find a way to move the image from the tablet to the device you are using to operate Uncyclopedia. Spıke ¬ 03:35 13-Jun-13

Let's hope we can get Cap'n Crunch through as well. Thanks, Spike. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:54, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

Change history of Macintosh

I didnt revert Chief Justices edit. I dont know how that happened though this isnt the first time. Ill change my password again. Chiefs edit was an obvious one which I eventually would have reverted myself. In any case...Id appreciate it if youd have more tact with your edit summaries SPIKE. Im starting to have deja-vu. --ShabiDOO 17:46, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

  1. No, sorry, when Special:RecentChanges tells me that you made an edit, I will continue to assume that you made an edit.
  2. When it is an ill-advised edit, I will not walk on eggshells in case It Wasn't Really You, but will say so; and will say exactly why I think so. No, wait, I did.
  3. If you really think that your password is being stolen repeatedly, then my tone-of-voice toward you in the aftermath is hardly your biggest problem. Rather than imply that I risk falling out of favor with you (!), why don't you work on the tact yourself? Spıke ¬ 18:10 14-Jun-13
No...Im not refering to the message...your message was reasonable...its how arrogant and condescending the execution of the messages appear. Youve been particularily nasty to users in the last couple weeks and it reminds me of your behaviour from two years ago...only worse. --ShabiDOO 19:13, June 14, 2013 (UTC)
Well, then, I will take care to keep my messages reasonable and their execution (?) less objectionable. My dealings with users (you mean Denza) do not need explanation. Do please learn to interact with others without simpering that everyone else needs to mature or your opinion of us will suffer; that would be irony.
PS--Combined with ScottPat's complaint below, and Aleister's of last week, I have asked Sannse to investigate whether there is a bug in the uploading/logging code. Spıke ¬ 19:22 14-Jun-13

Phantom uploads

Someone just uploaded images in my name!! This was not me! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:52, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

Ok, I have changed my password so hopefully that will do the trick. Sorry for panicking just to say it was not me that uploaded the pictures. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:59, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

Not the first such complaint. I have asked Sannse to investigate whether there is a bug in the uploading/logging code. Spıke ¬ 19:22 14-Jun-13
Thanks Spike, you're a great help. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:25, June 14, 2013 (UTC)
Yup, I am peerless at moving information from user A to user C. That is why they call me the big B. Spıke ¬ 19:45 14-Jun-13

Hey I know, combine your name with that. S for Spike, so B+S=BS. That could be your name: BS. (Only kidding!) Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:51, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

Oh wow, I had an upload done in my name too somehow. Now, I uploaded the sketch with a revised description, but some time later, after editing Vocaloid, there was an "uploaded file from DSA510", which was a yt vid from the page, which I did not upload. So yeah, I think there is some glitch in the system. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 22:01, June 14, 2013 (UTC)

SABOTAGE!

Hokay Spikey boy, count this on "my signature need to get the last word" or whatever you like. More than anything else, I'm interested in seeing how quickly you will archive this one. Other than that, I have a few points to clarify since you seem to be living under an illusion.

  • There's nothing much more dorky than the suggestion I would try to entice (for instance) Zim to forget about your wonderful company and join "us" - whoever this "us" might be - in the sordid depths of literary depravity, wherever that might happen. I just wanted to say hi to him on IRC and you went and banned me. Who is dumb, Zim or me? Do you think he would have gone: "Oh yes, he has written about Bat Fuck Something - why don't I go do whatever he wants me to do"? Do you think I thought that? I think he's a nice and funny guy despite his totally off-the-wall ability to work with you, that's all. I liked his company those few times I chatted with him. Seeing how he hasn't tried to contact me anywhere, he's not interested, though.
  • This second point is a bit of the same: you apparently keep thinking that there's some kind of a thing - I can't grasp what it could be - that would make (term missing) preferable to the Wikia-run Uncyclopedia. How fucked up can you twist it? If someone writes an article that would fit in here in terms of what is allowed, what possible reason would he/she have not to put it in here - other than that there are people in here who might not appreciate the article worth the trouble? The fact that Wikia is a company? Who would be as daft as to think it makes any difference in the world which instance publishes our writings for free?
  • I think your willingness to sacrifice whatever ease you might get in your interpersonal comedy site relations to your loyalty to a faceless company must be a sign of something. You don't even get paid, do you?
  • You never gave me any answers as to why you hold your own sense of humour so high that you blatantly refuse to give anyone else's any consideration. I don't know how well you can leave it alone, seeing how I haven't followed this site a lot - but this is the impression I get. What's your point - I mean your real point? Only what you say: that all articles should be as fake encyclopedic as possible? As I told someone: good luck with keeping it fresh, if that's the case. If you have any other point, please tell me.
  • Don't go on a tangent about my wanting something more every time I start something. I've written 50 fucking articles this spring only, and drawn something like 33 images. I'm an industrious motherfucker who knows what he's doing and does it. I don't want or limit, I give and create positive environment whenever people want to work with me. Watch and learn. -- Style Oranssiviiva Guide 07:18, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
For God's sake please stop coming over here and telling us how to run this place. As you no longer contribute to this site you should not instruct people how to run it. If we are running it badly in your opinion then you don't have to do anything just ignore this website and get on with your own one. We don't go over to your site and tell you what to do despite the fact that we disagree with a few of your motives.
As for making 50 articles this spring - so what? That is what you are meant to do, I have made fifty articles this spring and so have many others. Get on with your own website and stop coming over here and telling us what to do, leave us alone unless you actually want to contribute and follow the rules. Thank you.
