LADIES AND GENTLEMEN (and Uncyclopedians) please note there is a new procedure for asking for a name change.

1. Read this.
2. Ask for the change on my Community Central message wall. If you want your Uncyclopedia name to match a rest-of-Wikia name, please be sure to leave the message with your rest-of-Wikia account.
3. Confirm you want the change by saying so on this page, make sure you are logged in to the account you want to change. Please also confirm that you have read that.
4. Wait 2 working days
5a. Rejoice in your new name or
5c. Grumble that sannse has missed your message.

If 5c, then please use Special:Contact to get the attention of me or one of my colleagues.

Note that I won't necessarily see messages here if you haven't done step 2. Please me sure to message me on Community Central first. (It's also worth saying that it's safer to leave other messages there too... Uncyclopedia's separate user database means that I don't get notifications of messages here when I'm on other wikis).

If I've deleted a request, and you still want the change, please follow the above. This time I'll sort it, promise!

Thanks -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 04:24, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

While you are here, I have a question for you

I'm not sure if this is an uncyc issue or a wikia thing, so I thought I'd ask. The search bar in the corner, it used to be that if you typed in a username in the search, (ie user:"fillintheblank") it would take you to the user page. Now, I've found that when you do that, if there is an article that is similar in title to the userpage, it automatically takes you to the article instead. The example I'm seeing, is user:Diane. When you type that in search, instead of taking it to the userpage, even clicking on the dropdown takes you directly to an article. Did wikia change the way the search bar works a while back, or is this just some weird bug? It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 03:06, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

Humm... we've changed parts of it a while back, but not that part. I think it needs looking at by someone with a better knowledge of the search work than I have. Please can you use Special:Contact to send in a bug report? Thanks -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 22:46, October 12, 2012 (UTC)
Hey, I had a second unrelated question. Is it possible to reskin a userpage without it effecting the whole of uncyc? (You know for cosmetic reasons?) I want to be able to change the table on the left with the links for the reskin. Just curious if its possible and how. It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 16:13, October 13, 2012 (UTC)
Yes, it's possible... but how exactly it's done is beyond me I'm afraid. I know that you need to adjust the css and possibly the js, and that will be using the MediaWiki pages for those.... but that's about the limits for me. I'd suggest you ask whoever is the wiki's current css/js guru. Or, if you don't have one at the moment, you could try Community Central's forums or the Monobook Wiki. -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 21:01, October 15, 2012 (UTC)


Is there any way I can talk with you directly (not publically). It has nothing to do with any polemics or conflict...theres just a specific question I have. --ShabiDOO 02:41, October 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sure, the easiest way is to send an email via Special:Contact with my name in the subject. You can also sometimes find me on Freenode IRC under this name, usually in the evenings San Francisco time. /whois to see if I'm online. I'm also on Skype if you use that, we have a public channel there and you can PM... let me know your Skype name and I'll add you. Finally, you can go to Community Central and join the chat there. If I'm not online, there may be another staff member or volunteer who can tell me someone is looking for me. That chat has a private message function too. Hope that helps -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 21:01, October 15, 2012 (UTC)

Changing username

Hi Sannse. I would want to rename my account from "Bhenry2009" to "Bhenry1990". I registered Bhenry1990 as Wikia Account when i created an account at 伪基百科. Then I cannot register Bhenry1990 here. I wish my english uncyclopedia username were same as my Wikia username and other launguage uncyclopedias'. I left a message this June. But You were not here.--Bhenry2009 (talk) 18:42, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

Hi, you're done. Enjoy the extra decade -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 23:58, November 5, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you very much!--Bhenry1990 (talk) 08:54, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

I apologise

...for vandalising your signature. Also, hi. -— Lyrithya 05:02, November 15, 2012 (UTC)

Checkuser request

Hi there, could you please perform a checkuser on User:Hipster? We believe he is User:another_n00b and want to find out if this is true. Thank you :) User:Yrtneg/etc/signature1 15:08, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Yrtneg. Typically only admins are allowed to make checkuser requests. Also, since Hipster publicly confessed to being Another n00b there really isn't any doubt as far as I know that he is him. He has been given some restrictions but is otherwise free to remain a part of our community. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 19:21, November 18, 2012 (UTC)

Extra! Extra! News that's not new to you!

That content warning thing

What about this? If not this, then how about barking dogs? Or room temperature egg salad? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 18:10, November 20, 2012 (UTC)

All of them are a problem :( Having a warning just for specific pages would mean the current extension would need recoding. I'm not sure if/when that could happen. I'm also not sure how it would work to minimize views. The current version is only supposed to show once per visit (or less, I'm not sure), maybe that could still work with individual pages...
Anyway, I'll pass it on (the idea, not the barking egg salad) and see what comes back -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 18:59, November 21, 2012 (UTC)
If someone comes here and searches for things that make the squares and prudes freak out, they get to see this:


...generally (and that's after the one-time click through warning warning that's got the kids here in a tizzy), but if they go to Wikipedia and, say, search for "vagina"...
Discuss. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 19:36, November 21, 2012 (UTC)
Wikia is not Wikipedia -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 19:17, November 27, 2012 (UTC)
That explains why Wikia put the kibosh on my wiki! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:02, November 27, 2012 (UTC)
We did what where? -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 19:42, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Hoohoowiki. And I don't think Dickywiki's gonna pass, either. Harrumph! Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:34, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Well that really depends whether it's a comprehensive and accurate project to record all famous people named Richard, or a wiki on the political ambitions and policies of the Democratic Indira Congress (Karunakaran), or a directory of Private detectives in the Lower Manhattan area..... or.... something else -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 21:56, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Are you trying to be funny? We don't much tolerate humour around here. Comedy is serious business. We don't much tolerate serious business around here either. Kind of a catch 22, really. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:20, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
Wait... I thought we didn't tolerate catch 22s around here? -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 19:11, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
True, but that's only because we think Catch22 is a boy band. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:16, November 30, 2012 (UTC)

I need to have a talk with you on IRC later, if that is doable... --Revolutionary, Anti-Bensonist, and TYATU Boss Uncyclopedian Meganew (Chat) (Care for a peek at my work?) (SUCK IT, FROGGY!) 20:03, December 4, 2012 (UTC)

If I'm there, you can talk to me... and sometimes I even reply!! -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 23:17, December 6, 2012 (UTC)
Am on IRC right now, so... --Revolutionary, Anti-Bensonist, and TYATU Boss Uncyclopedian Meganew (Chat) (Care for a peek at my work?) (SUCK IT, FROGGY!) 23:21, December 6, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, if you need something you can look for me there, but I don't go on during work hours (usually), and only rarely otherwise. It really is a lot better to use Special:Contact -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 22:09, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

Name change, how does that work?

I wanted to change my user name officially to just "Aleister" but have procrastinated. What would that do to my edit history, user page, etc. Would it change everything at once, or would I have to copy and paste some stuff? And I tried to create a new account as Aleister, but it says the name is already taken although when I try to log in as Aleister (I may have already done this) it says their is no user by that name. So chains for the moment until this gets cleared up. Aleister 12:58 3-1-'13

Do you own the account "Aleister" that was used on de.uncyclopedia? If so, and if you can still log into it, I can give you the name here. All your edit history and so on would transfer to the new account, so that's not a problem.
Although Uncyclopedia has a different user database from the rest of Wikia, we still consider a name "taken" if it's registered in either place. It's just so someone can't pretend to be another user by registering the same name on the other database. But if you own the de.uncyc account, I can reconcile them. If not, maybe you can go for another variation? -- sannse@Wikia (talk) 19:19, January 3, 2013 (UTC)
Ah, that must be it, someone probably has it in another wiki. Thanks anyway, I get by with the rd. Of course there is lots more to talk about in other areas, another time and over some green tea perhaps. Aleister 20:30 3-1-'13

Well, it's over.

I've got some free time and I always wanted to feel important and be a big-and-buff admin. Can I get that status now that everyone else has left, and I'd be the only one around to manage the site? A (Fallen Reich)17:48 5 January 2013

Sannse, although we all love you, nobody wants to talk with you. You're from Wikia. We don't give a rat's ass about Wikia anymore. Which is, oddly, as Frosty so nicely pointed out, why we're moving. It's your rules we don't like. And now you're even trying to rule over our departure from your wretched company? Not happening.
Trying to match those two statements together. Are you sure you don't have Dissociative Identity Disorder?                               Puppy's talk page03:26 06 Jan
