Hi Spike, if you could take a look at Ebonics I would be most grateful. It doesn't read as well as I would like and I am getting a bit cross-eyed trying to work it. Perhaps it is ok, but I have been staring at it too long. A second opinion or a run through by your good self would help. Intend leaving that section for a bit and come back, if you think it is better to leave me to it for now. Thank you. --EStop (talk) 18:08, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

Want me to try to get User:Spark23 going?--EStop (talk) 18:45, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

You are welcome to, whether I want it or not. You've seen what I would do with him; if you have a better idea, go wild. Spıke Radiomicrophone18:55 2-Jul-15
I asked for that very reason. I have not been here long enough to be able to tell whether it is a waste of time or not. Clearly it is so I'll not bother.--EStop (talk) 18:59, July 2, 2015 (UTC)
I don't know that for sure, but in any case give him the next move. If you see a spark of something, feel free to get him going.
The Ebonics section is a mish-mosh of Ebonics as spoken by the Ebonic, Ebonics as spoken by Geordies who have watched Trading Places once only, and English as few Americans at all would speak it (conjugation, diaspora, vernacular). Especially, you need to decide whether this is a ridiculous imitation of American blacks or whether it is play-it-straight humor ridiculing them, in which case you should stay in "encyclopedia" character. You can't ridicule Da Hood writing in Shuck-and-jive, because it is too obvious that the speaker is saying things he would never say. Spıke Radiomicrophone19:05 2-Jul-15
Agree. I can't write it well enough because I can't hear that voice in my head, unlike the East Anglia patois, which my Grandfather used to speak. This piece has been written and researched almost word-by-word and I think Ebonics is a test too far. I'll get rid of it and come up with something else. Thanks for looking. --EStop (talk) 19:35, July 2, 2015 (UTC)
Gday! Do you think this is far off the mark for VFH Spike? P.S. that last UnNews on Greece was very funny. --EStop (talk) 13:13, July 7, 2015 (UTC)

As I was elsewhere in the Wikiverse, and it is mentioned on your page, what happened? Jackiespeel (talk) 14:36, July 3, 2015 (UTC)

It is described adequately there: A small group of Uncyclopedians split the project in half so that they could own it. The only consequence for the present day is that we are sensitive to newbies recommending to users that they switch from editing this site to editing other sites, even other Wikia sites, as you advised Puncherofbears today. In fact, you might break off from adding cryptic comments to high-traffic talk pages and actually sit down and write funny stuff here. Spıke Radiomicrophone15:47 3-Jul-15
I understand recommending other users elsewhere if you think their story ideas/themes/memes are not suitable for this site. I would suggest they just go to the main Wikia portal and have a look round there. Users can advertise their presence elsewhere on the web through their own user page if they so choose. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:48, July 3, 2015 (UTC)
I wasn't here at the time, so asking was quicker (and I am mostly harmless).

It takes a little time to work back into Uncyclopedia - and sometimes it is appropriate to post an idea for others to 'persuade to become Uncyclopedia-worthy.

Till we meet elsewhere. Jackiespeel (talk) 21:13, July 3, 2015 (UTC)

edit UnNews:New game "Where's Charlie Hebdo" launched

Sorry about the very late answer, I just have been released by Daech. To be honest, I'm not sure about this translation. Not sure if you are aware of that but the famous books "where is Waldo" has been translated in France under the title "Where is Charlie" ("Où est Charlie" in French). So the title "Where is Charlie-Hedbo" in English is pretty meaningless because it doesn't match the almost only thing funny in that article. Thank you anyway for the effort. Allahu fucking Akbar. This is not a signature - WiiKend Magritte 20:43, July 5, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you; the English version is funny enough, in a whimsical way, even if it doesn't align exactly with the French reality. I had tried to find you on the French Uncyclopedia, as you are on a list of Uncyclopedians that have a name in common with a user elsewhere at Wikia, Inc. but it seems your account has not been renamed. May you find your 86 virgins! Spıke Radiomicrophone14:31 6-Jul-15

Memo: Lucifuge scolds the newbie on his talk page just after he was perma-banned.

Yes, I only noticed that after I'd posted to the vandal's page. Tell Romartus I said "Good work." --Lucifuge Rofacale (talk) 14:26, July 6, 2015 (UTC)

I swatted him for 3 months for vandalism with a touch of trolling. Romartus got him when he returned to the exact scene-of-the-crime. Spıke Radiomicrophone14:31 6-Jul-15
Like a serial killer. One things for sure, he's never going to be a Hannibal Lecter! --Lucifuge Rofacale (talk) 11:29, July 7, 2015 (UTC)
Some vandals can be so dumb. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:56, July 7, 2015 (UTC)
