Before writing a comment on my talk page you might want to consider a few things:

  • I only respond to ye in the tongue of Scots, en espanol, madein upein Deutsch or in BBC English. If you don't speak in one of those languages then your comment may be ignored.
  • If you want to have a discussion irrelevant to Uncyclopedia and want to talk to me about my own views on such matters then please go ahead but be warned.
  • If you post a message here and your nation does not have a flag then you run the risk of being colonialised. Then we shall run your account for you.
  • I am a friendly user and I don't mind what you post on the page as long as it is not vandalism.

UnSignpost/20130915

What about creating the UnSignpost which may as well be the last one? There are two "long" articles by Spike and Puppy and several short messages that you added at the UnSignpost/News. I think this is enough. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:15, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

I'll create one tomorrow. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:19, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, sure. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:20, September 14, 2013 (UTC)
Oh sorry didn't realise you'd started one. I'll help edit and finish it then. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:52, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
I think it is ready now. Just needs to be checked by you and it can go to print. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 07:51, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
In fact I'll send it out anyway and you can change if you want afterwards. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 08:50, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

I wasn't quite done yet

But thanks for looking at the article anyway. It was quite a fixer-upper project. - Jonny appleseed (talk) 17:14, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

No probs it looked great. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 17:46, September 16, 2013 (UTC)
When you edit in mainspace, having another Uncyclopedian kibitz is a known risk. An alternative if you want privacy is to create an article in userspace, such as User:Jonny appleseed/HowTo:Change a Lightbulb. And to kibitz further: That initial list is absurdly long, there is one joke (ridiculous ingredients) that it tells too many times, and Anon will arrive at midnight and add junk to it forever. Happy editing! Spıke ¬ 18:06 16-Sep-13
Yep I agree ditch the list and make a paragraph for materials instead. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:23, September 16, 2013 (UTC)

PSulivan

Forum or not, must we go here? It was either yet-another rage-quit, in response to a revert of an evening of truly awful edits (which I point to in the Forum), or (perhaps to change the subject) it is, as PSulivan claimed last, a completely personal decision unrelated to events on the site. (In which case, why the broadcast?) Unless you have a plan to make this really funny, I might focus on other news (which assumes there were other news).

I might even pass over this morning's ban of Newman66, on the charge of: More Of The Same. Spıke ¬ 18:12 21-Sep-13

I didn't realise it was a rage quit. I am extremely tired and the news needed desperately updating. It was either a blank page or this. If you have a better idea, please go ahead. I have made it clear recently through an attempted yet failed resignation that I cannot fully carry out the responsibilities I am required of in my job as Chief Editor. I truly apolagise and I try to do my best to help this community and it's (hugely biased) media in every way I can despite my lack of time. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:22, September 21, 2013 (UTC)

(Before edit conflict) PS--I hope never to tell you what to print in the UnSignpost, and am not doing so now; only how it looks to me, how it might look to others, and whether I think it violates one of our ground rules such as civility. However, regarding really funny above, what you've got so far would not be. It is one more boot in the arse on his way out the door (granted that that buttock already had my bootprint on it). In the unlikely case that this resignation is unrelated, piling on might be a reason for him not to return if he otherwise might.

(Reply to 18:22) I am not sure it was a rage-quit--again, he claims it was not--but it came on the heels of those bad edits. I do not prefer a blank page but am always willing to tolerate a delayed press date. Let's hope Anton reads this and has some ideas. I am unaware of any real website news except a certain cryptic announcement (an announcement of a future announcement) on the Site Notice up top. Perhaps Romartus will write the lead story for the next issue. Spıke ¬ 18:28 21-Sep-13

Thanks Spike. I was wondering what the banner was about. It doesn't have a link to a page describing what it is actually advertising though! Hopefully it will be a good surprise or maybe Romartus has finally written up the article summaries for the Poo Lit Surprise! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:08, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Romartus and I actually did visit Wikia headquarters in San Francisco in July. Neither of us have yet discussed this with the community yet though: Romartus has probably been too busy, and I have been too distracted. All I will say right now, so not to spoil the surprise, was that there were several team meetings, and a pleasant dinner cruise in the fog. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 19:41, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
Oh that's cool. So you two met each other in person, which must have been nice. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:51, September 21, 2013 (UTC)
I am very intrigued by the banner and I hope that we will read an interview about the future of Uncyclopedia or something of this kind. It is cool that some people who know each other only virtually really meet in real life and I think more of us should have such visits. Responding to Scott and Spike, Scott's entry seems funny to me (the quit does not seem to be a rage one and is not very significant, that's why making it significant is funny [what I meant here is that it was not really a sensation]) and I think I will write something too. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:52, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks Anton. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 10:57, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
You are welcome. And I have another idea, I will write about it soon. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:44, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Hampsters

I deleted your comment to keep the ballot for Hampster as short as possible for the benefit of other users. There is a report generated nightly, Special:BrokenRedirects, that identifies redirects that point to deleted pages. The next Admin who looks at this would delete Hampsters as a matter of course. (Look at the Huff Log: I just serviced this page this morning and caught a flurry of pointers to the deleted Where's Waldo.) Cheers. Spıke ¬ 13:23 22-Sep-13

OK. Didn't realise. Sorry about that and thanks for explanation. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:26, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

10 Downing Street

FYI, a way to preserve this initial quotation without "compromising formatting" (your gripe in your Change Summary) would be just to replace the unusual initial use of {{Cquote}} with {{Q}} or even {{Wilde}}. Nevertheless, I agree with you main point that this particular quote isn't funny enough to justify Cquote, as it isn't funny to me at all, unless Number 10 means something to Brits apart from 10 Downing. Spıke ¬ 13:29 22-Sep-13

I don't think it is particularly funny either. I didn't delete it on the basis on formatting but on the basis of humour with a note that it disrupted formatting anyway. The only joke was that when a Prime Minister is no longer a Prime Minister he cannot live in No.10 hence if he hates the house, he changes his job. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:42, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

That alone might explain some twists-and-turns in modern British politics and is worth developing. Spıke ¬ 13:48 22-Sep-13

Hmmm...perhaps. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 13:53, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

The mirror

The history is mentioned here. As the most common use of the Mirror is to resurrect pages after the consensus has voted to delete them, your query perhaps should not have been a broadcast. Spıke ¬ 16:06 22-Sep-13

OK, sorry. Remove my forum if necessary then. Thanks. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 16:10, September 22, 2013 (UTC)
