edit Soothing about excessively long talk pages.

I saw your complaint about it. It's been an idea sitting on my back-burner for ages, that I've started to kick in, on an "abbreviated" talk page idea. Rather than displaying the whole page, what we usually want is in the last 2 or 3 sections. If I could create something that allows me to vies those last few sections it's be fantastic. So I started working on a concept. Getting the last section transcluded is a doddle. Getting the last few is much more code intensive, and if the page is overly large) say exceeding 100 sections) it adds even more issues. I've experimented at the mirror with a few ideas, but have hit server limitation issues. The server there is not as robust as it is here, but even so, server load is server load, and I'd need to minimise it. Once you've viewed a section, then being able to edit it is a slightly different beast as well. Then there is the problem of having a page to store things. I could have one page that accessed x amount of users talk pages one at a time, but it would have limitations (ie, having to code in which user you were looking at and how to select who was who.) and then there are users who have "unconventional" talk pages. The main point though is that a "solution" to the issue of loading large talk pages on a smart phone is potentially do-able. It's a bit of work involved though. There is an alternate way to do this using JS, but that'd be more a Bizzeebeever solution, as my JS sucks. What are your thoughts? --                              Puppy's talk page01:21 06 Jul 13:21, July 6, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, it's (quite) ready now for reviewing! Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 10:09, 15 July, 2012 (UTC)
Have you started yours? Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 16:56, 16 July, 2012 (UTC)
? SORRY but I just saw you from recent changes... Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 18:50, 16 July, 2012 (UTC) I havent unfortunately. I have little online time here...and I've dedicated it to the retro thing that I've been organising...and voting on VFH, which I dont like to miss. I read your scenario, I liked it...though we may want to reconsider the "its your daughter" line. Can we keep the line equally shoking but without going down the road of incest? --ShabiDOO 19:47, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, you're one of those busy businessmen! I understand. Removed the incest-part, it was quite too shocking. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 07:53, 18 July, 2012 (UTC)

edit Andorra

Thanks for your help with my article. I've never actually been to Andorra. All I know is that it is the only country on Earth to have two cows on its flag (fact used courtesy of Sheldon Cooper) and that it's really small and it, along with Luxembourg, Malta, Vatican City, San Marino and Liechtenstein, can fit inside the state of Rhode Island.

So thanks once more with my Andorra article. If you have any more ideas you can submit them to the article or you can over them with me on my talk page and ask for my approval or whatnot. Have a good day! Or night... or whatever. Welcome to the machine MATTHLOCK 17:32, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

edit Knock-knock! You home?!

Hi! I seem to remember some impudent chap importuning me for a share button. Was that you?!?! Was that you!?!? YES IT WAS! WHO'S AN IMPATIENT LITTLE SHABIDOO? WHO? YOU ARE! YES YOU ARE! GOOGA-GOOGA-GOOGA! Peek-a-boo! (tickles Shabidoo's feet)

Anywho, I have just the thing, and it's going to be added site-wide at some point. However: I need a couple of people to test it for me, first, and since you ...y'know... asked me for it on my talk page ...twice... I naturally thought of you. Here's all you need to do:

1. Cut and paste the following code into your monobook or uncyclopedia javascript file (depending on which theme you use):
importScript( "User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/sharing.js" );
importStylesheet( "User:Bizzeebeever/styles/sharing.css" );
2. Clear your cache using the instructions on that page

Any ideas for improvement would be appreciated (although I'll probably just ignore them and then pelt you with rotten peaches and dried-out pickles). Thanks! ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jul 26 '12 21:15 (UTC)

Awsome...I just did that java thing on my java page (which I did not even know existed). It works aboslutely perfectly. The only suggestion I would so either make the share button bigger or put it at the top as, I didnt even realise it was there until I scrolled down and was searching for it. But it looks really really really COOL!!! I here-by award you 100 Uncyclopedia-Bucks. Spend them however you like :) :) :) --ShabiDOO 22:01, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
Cool. I can certainly make it taller, and put it near the top of the page, but if I make it wider, it may cover up some elements (like the edit-section link) which would piss some folks off. (I think it may do that anyway in monobook.) I was hoping that its blue color would make it stand out from the rest of the page. Keep testing it, and let me know of any bugs you run across. Oh, and P.S.: Java is not the same thing as JavaScript. :)  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usThu, Jul 26 '12 22:11 (UTC)
Indeed. You are wise BB. But not the same as poop! We must always remember to discern the subtle shades of meanings. The thing about having the tab in least on my chrome...the lower bar is blue...and the scroll bars are also blue...and so maybe the share doesnt stand out because of that. Maybe. Could be. Perhaps. Depending on the weather. And such. And so on. --ShabiDOO 22:39, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I see! Could you show me a screenshot? Because I don't have Windows 7 (that's what you're using, right?). If this tab really blends into the background, I may try and come up with a different color or shape or something. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, Jul 27 '12 0:52 (UTC)


Here is a screen shot. Though...maybe its really just my browser with the operating system I'm using. Blue is a nice colour afterall. --ShabiDOO 02:01, July 27, 2012 (UTC)

Wow, XP just like me. Lol. I definitely see what you're saying, about it not being prominent against that color scheme. Vista and 7 are a little less blue, and Mac OS X is mostly silver, but from what I've seen of Windows 8, blue is pretty standard. I'll see what I can do. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usFri, Jul 27 '12 5:56 (UTC)

Hey. No I didnt. Id like to work on it...but I'm pretty busy this summer and I am working with Cathtecolourful on an article now (so slowly I think its driving him crazy). So if you are patient, then yeah, we could colab in September or so. --ShabiDOO 20:40, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

BWAHAHA you forgot to sign you post thaz the funniest shit EVAR lololol! Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 09:39, 19 August, 2012 (UTC)

edit Shabidoo & U

Shabi, mate, Nillion is a take on the concept of infinity being economics (if there was no debt ceiling that would solve everything). And it's a poke at a piece of history you might not know about, e.g., The Uncounted Enemy lie scandal where Westy caused an extra 30,000 American teenagers to be killed in Vietnam (and a million more Vietnamese) by his dog-faced lying about real enemy troop strength. A lie which prolonged the war a number of unnecessary and bloody years. I give the Wikipedia link to the scandal in case you like a good story. Anyway, we are collaba-taters on this, and I think it's ready for VFH. But will you vote for it? Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th Agnideva-small.jpg AGT-logo-small.jpg 19:33, Aug 26

Hello, and thanks for the kind words about Peacock. I haven't been back since, and am glad you liked it. I've been out of the loop here for a few months, so am unaware of anything going on, just like in real life. But I will return with a vengence some day (not a literal vengence, but writing a lot) and will look forward to working with you again. Ghosts and goblins!!! Al 16:14 October 4

edit I can't replicate that bug

I updated Chrome, and the share-tab works fine for me, so I'm going to assume it is some issue with your version of Chrome--one of your extensions, perhaps? Let me know if the issue has gone away. Thanks. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSun, Nov 4 '12 11:33 (UTC)

edit Who starts the article?

Now that we've reached some form of conclusion, Magic man is suggesting someone starts an article. Problem is, no one has. Or has someone already started an article. Forgive my ignorance, it is contributed from my inactivity because I recently moved into a new home and as you know, in the first few days, my Internet gets real horny and stuff. --POP!GoesTheWeasel Evil-clown 04:08, November 8, 2012 (UTC)

edit Ola

I didn't mean to piss you off by reverting all your edits to 1947 Horse-Throwing Competition. It's just that that's one of my favorite articles, and I spoke to one of the guys who was a part of TOAST, and he wasn't too impressed with the changes, either, so I figured I could change it back, and you would understand. The thing is, it may have issues, but it is also written from a lunatic's perspective, so it's hard to improve, you know?  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSat, Nov 10 '12 6:06 (UTC)

I'm not pissed off. How did you get in touch with TOAST?
By the way, turns out it was some kind of blocker I was using that didnt let the like button work. Having said that, don't you think its time to make it go global? --ShabiDOO 15:12, November 10, 2012 (UTC)
I'm glad you understand; I just happened to talk to Mr. TOAST Dude #3 because he and I are both on IRC a lot.
As for the Sharing tab, yeah, I would've liked to have it site-wide two three months ago. Problem is, I need an admin to fiddle the MediaWiki:Gadgets page (and a couple others), and unfortunately, none of our (two) active admins seem to know anything about that sort of thing. It'll get done ...eventually. I guess. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-usSat, Nov 10 '12 17:04 (UTC)

edit Nillion

Hi Shabi. After I fixed it up pretty tight I never got around to renoming it because I got into a losing streak and didn't want to waste it. But it's our collab, and I'm happy with the infinity angle - which is kinda like the QE concept actually has become. You're welcome to give it a try. I hope you're well.

edit Koch Brothers on VFH

There's more to it now. Please reread and see if you want to flip your vote. Spıke Ѧ 18:16 20-Nov-12

Hi SPIKE. I re-read the article. I think I don't quite get it for a few reasons. First...I actually have no idea who those people are (as I follow little American news, which only gives me an outline of whats goign on). In fact, I get most of my (un)information about the US by reading unnews articles (which I feel...surprisingly...educates me more than real news). My only comment, is that perhaps in some spots, perhaps it would be useful to directly hit the joke on the spot in place of some padding and so many metaphores. But thats my point of view, and I wouldn't even know how to do that myself. I hope what I said was at all useful. --ShabiDOO 02:12, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

Very well--You might never be enthusiastic about this one as a feature, as it is definitely for the crazed fan of US politics. Trying to spell it out for the non-US reader (any more than pointing to the Wikipedia article) might be tiresome for the target audience--for whom I do feel that I hit most jokes on the spot. The metaphors are late additions to try to provide a little something for everyone. However, thanks for your insight. Spıke Ѧ 02:40 22-Nov-12

You basically said it all. My pleasure SPIKE. --ShabiDOO 02:49, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

edit Forum:Shabidoo = SPIKE

What are you doing raising the accusation that we are the same user with different sockpuppets? To quote Pogo Possum: I'd punch you in the face, if I were a bit surer it isn't true. Spıke Ѧ 15:02 22-Nov-12

SPIKE. Try to not make such a big deal out of this. Just because we are the same person using two different accounts, doesn't mean we have to fight publically. We can fight each other tonight after drinking a big bottle of whisky. Okay. Just simmer down a little and this will all pass over. --ShabiDOO 16:35, November 22, 2012 (UTC)

edit Hello

This is PopGoesTheWeasel, currently on vacation in China(no, this is not a joke. I am seriously there now. In Wuhan, to be specific) and I managed to bail out with my laptop and some internet so ... yeah.

There has been little progress on the colab thingy with Magic man. I think he really wants one of us to start the article instead of him. What do you say? --POP!GoesTheWeasel Evil-clown 04:08, November 25, 2012 (UTC)

edit Your comment was fantastic.

If it was funny, you should probs vote for or against. What do you say?--SirPeasewhizzdeNewYork Click here to talk 01:53, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

I changed the vote count...when I voted. You dig? --ShabiDOO 03:15, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
I don't see how though? Comments count as votes? --SirPeasewhizzdeNewYork Click here to talk 21:30, November 28, 2012 (UTC)
Listen NOOB, Im going to beat your face into a hamburger and steal your lunch money for the rest of the semester...okay?! If it was a comment instead of a vote, I would have put 'comment' or abstain or non-vote in front of it, and not changed the score +1. There's no rule saying you have to put for or sure or hell yeah or fucking eh or this confirms that I am voting in favour of this. Also, I'm not sure anyone has ever voted against a user in noobofthemoment as that would almost always be dickish, and also, comments are allowed: if someone doesn't want to vote but leave a's fair game, and also it's nice to see you taking it all so seriously. If you put that enthusiasm into your articles, I'm sure youll be spitting out one heck of a lot of good things you know. If you like, feel free to add a 'for' infront of my entry on the noobofthemoment page, you have my permission, and in case you still find this all confusing then I will proclaim it here and now: I officially vote in favour of Kamek98 being considered an official noobofthemoment. Okay? All right? You have three seconds to take off before I get the meat grinder out...ya see? --ShabiDOO 21:49, November 28, 2012 (UTC)

edit Office Chit and yes it seems that I just wrote it wrong. I apologize.

Hey, I noticed that you had done some edits actually! But... I believe either you or me got something wrong. You see, as I remember it, the idea was that I do 2 scenes of OC, and you do your own 2 scenes of OC. What I'm seeing, is that you fixed some mistakes in my scenes, made it a bit funnier, and added some new material (which works, altough still needs some editing as you left some of my parts completely like that they were in the beginning, making the discussion sound a bit stupid. But that can be fixed, so no worries). But I don't care, as long as something is happening. And as I believe something is happening, can we, like continue? If you're still interested on writing it/not too busy/high enough, that is. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Sleeping Cat 19:11, 7 December, 2012 (UTC)

Hey Cat. Of course I want to work on it. What I thought is that we would write each section and then edit it. I think we both need to pass through it with an editorial eye. That being said, my last edit should NOT be taken as authoritative. If you don't like some changed, or if you even don't like it at all, UNDO it, you SHOULD unto it if you think things should stay or if we should edit it (or not edit it at all) in a different way. Of course I wanna work on this with big soupy sugary syrrupy marshmellowy ninja. --ShabiDOO 19:24, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

edit Bitcoin on VFH

Thanks for your HO (as in IMHO). I minced a few words in Section 5 to address part of your criticism. I suspect another part of your criticism is that this section is not original absurdity but commentary about how the concept was absurd to begin with. Yup, that's true. Spıke Ѧ 23:16 7-Dec-12

One of the biggest problems with lists, is that, at least for me, each entry is much like an individual paragraph in narrative form, and it's much harder to be funny in one sentence than in a paragraph. Whenever I include a list, I try to make every entry in the list honestly funny, and at least one of them should be LOL. I think that any list with more than say, 8 entries, is quite unlikely to pull it off, at least I've never read a list longer than that which worked. But that's just me :) --ShabiDOO 00:34, December 9, 2012 (UTC)

edit Kangaroo Hopskotch

Thanks for your vote at Kangaroo Hopscotch, wait, I mean at HowTo:Beet off, more warmer thanks for the kind words you wrote there. I saw your note on the red-link user page of the guy who voted (he probably thought he just had to change the number). That's the first time I've seen that, and I guess him and another user voted on the page direct from the begging-votes note on the display when you come to the site. That's pretty cool, and shows that "the general public" will probably like the page if it makes it. I am humbled and ashamed. Not for the article, but for beeting off in public today in front of those high school girls. I don't know why they laughed, I really don't. I thought I was doing it right. Wasn't I? Aleister 3:30 17decemb12 (I almost wrote "beeting off in public today at the vigil in Sandy Hook" but figured that would be too much. It was too much. Wasn't it?} (I just about ended that last sentence with the words "Remember the Maine" but that would have been wrong. Wouldn't it?)

p.s. Damn. I just google/binged "Kangaroo hopscotch" and people have actually used the term before.

A wiki that's made up of dozens of people with very different ideas, personalities, motivations, talent, humour, leadership skills, ability to compromise, direction, focus, giving a shit a wiki with just as many different views as opinions. I highly doubt that the majority of regular users "want out" right now ASAP. Adding a couple more days would certainly have given a few users more time to decide what to do, how to do it and other gay stuff. One thing you might consider doing (something I'm not so great at all the time) is putting yourself in the head of other users, and realising that your point of view is simply your own opinion, and that your view RARELY represents the views of everyone else on the wiki, even if we all appear to be pretty similar people. Now get off my knee and go get me a beer. A cold beer my dear. --ShabiDOO 00:16, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
There's no rush to emigrate over. Neither wiki is going to disappear any time soon. Just consider it open for business. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:15, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, TKF speaks the wisdom. This wiki will be first in the search engine for a long time, so it is Uncyclopedia. The other uncyclopedia is off to a great start - take a look at your page there, and other pages, it works well and feels good. Nice energy. Yet until it comes up on that search engine when "uncy" is put in, I'm going to help to try to keep this site as good as it has been when visitor and potential editors come to the door. Welcome Sir and/or Ma'am, enjoy your visit, is what I'll say. Aleister 1:45 Happy Birthday to both site '13

edit Hi Shabidoo

Nice to see you again! Thanks btw for your comments on the Unc of the Year over at the other UNC. You are welcome to contribute to both sites. I am busy here with Chiefjustice to maintain and see where we go with the Wikia site. I won't be spending much time at the other place except to maintain my stuff and talk to friends. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:44, January 14, 2013 (UTC)

No problem at all Romartus, you're a smaking candidate for both User and Writer of the Month indeed!!!. I'm mostly sticking around here until I see what kind of vibe emerges in the new page and settles here, before I figure out what to do. I'd like to do a happymonkey in February...if only I could do one that was cross wiki. Who knows, maybe I can think of one thing that would unite writers from both places, even for a week :)
A phenomenal 2013 Romartus! --ShabiDOO 02:14, January 15, 2013 (UTC)
Hello. Are you back here too? I hope so. I noticed you're voting down Puppy and Spike on the admin death-cage-match confrontation, but my God man, who would you have admin the site but two of the people who have devoted hundreds of hours to it the last few weeks? Simi is gone or at the fork site, Asplode is banned everywhere he lands, and Meganew could be good but has been absent here. That Bunny Rabbit guy (haven't seen him around either)? msnbc would be alright if he got serious, but no promise that he'll be around for the long haul. Anyway, yeah, I'm really hoping this isn't a coordinated effort to knock down the serious admins and then hand it to someone banned from both the fork and IRC. We need some serious admins, and if you are back (yay!) you will want that too. Thanks. Aleister 20:06 22-1-'13
Hey Ali. It's not a question of who has devoted the most time here, who writes best, who is a fun guy to chat with. The question is, who do I trust to have those tools. I utterly don't trust puppy at all, and I don't think SPIKE is ready. I'd prefer to see a lack of admins than either of them be admins. Seriously.
I'm not "back", i'm fence sitting between the two wikis.
What about our hubble scope article. ARE we going to do that shiiiiiiiiit? :)
Happy 2013. --ShabiDOO 21:12, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough on all counts. Fuckin' Hubble, I forgot all about that one. Did we start it, I don't remember (I was gone for seven months in '12). Can't talk now, have to go, but good to see you again. Is a HappyMonkey in our future? Aleister 21:58 22-1-'13
I'm not taking the VFS stuff personally, and I'm happy to see the opinions expressed there - as long as it stays above flame war level. To an extent, I agree with both of you. We need new admins here, and we need better admins here. Given a broader spectrum of people nominated, I wouldn't support me either. The issue in my mind isn't so much who would make the best admin, but who would make the least worst. TBH I would have preferred to have this vote in Feb, once dust had settled. I'd be inclined to even just look at temp adminship, given we're still in some major flux. But community support is for new admins. Aimsplode, Meganew, and Bunny are not people I'd hand admin access to. Al, Shabby and Funnybony I would in a blink, but they're not nominated. Sims is easily the most experienced and level headed, but is only semi-active (although would be the first person I could see as admin across all three sites.) That leaves me, Spike, and M-z as the next three viable candidates.
What I'd ask is rather than voting against a candidate, that you vote for a candidate. It'd be better to have someone who will represent this place the best, rather than the least worst. I'll take your comment as a “vote” - in that if it comes to line ball decision I'll mentally adjust the vote tally for me down one, and if needed decline the role. Instead put your vote behind the person you feel should be an admin. (And anyone non-Shabby reading this - I'm offering it to him personally. I'm not doing this as a blanket rule, as I offer that to someone who has both wikis interests at heart.)
Hope that makes sense.                               Puppy's talk page12:02 23 Jan
Puppy, my vote stands the way it is. I want my vote and reasons to be clear, effective and very out in the open as is. My feelings on this have, in fact grown stronger over the last 24 hours.
Back on the other fork you are still unrelenting.
You've been banned and have come back again with a sock arguing still. You leave a large block of text and then get a patient response even though you've been banned. And now, today, you've left another VERY VERY LARGE block of text saying what you've already said or what we all already know. Puppy. LET IT GO! How can you seriously be contending for an admin when you cannot simply concede a point, say how you feel and then move on? I am equally guilty of this sometimes, but, I'm not running for admin. You could fill 100 forums more full of text on this and no one will benifit from it. Brush it all aside and move on. You'll have far better relations with everyone and way more respect if you do than instead of explaining yourself ad infinitum and blowing peoples fuses. LET IT GO AND MOVE ON! --ShabiDOO 21:02, January 23, 2013 (UTC)
Points of clarification:
  1. I'm not “running” for admin. I've nominated for admin. I'd prefer it went to others, but accept that there isn't a huge pool of people that this wiki can trust.
  2. My perspective on the mirror is far from understood. I don't hate it, but I don't trust it. There is a gulf of difference. If I hated it I'd work against it, rather than for here.
  3. I don't keep “coming back” to the fork. I keep on being spoken to there, so I respond. (Understand this is why I'm not responding to your last comment there where you chose not to read what I wrote.)
  4. On the fork all I've asked for is to “LET ME GO”. I've stripped myself of features there, changed my identity, and tried to redirect the few people who visit my UP and UTP back to here - where I'm active.
So do me a favour and stop talking to me there. In fact I'd prefer you (as the forked community) also stopped talking about me there. I've accepted the communities vote on the deletion of my content there. I've accepted that the article that I spent around two months working on failed to work, but my choice to take it “back to the drawing board” is out of my hands there. I even accept that content I add here is likely to be taken there to promote the newer site.
I also accept that people I count as friends prefer to listen to the opinions of others about me rather than listen to me. And I accept that some of those friendships are gone for good. If my choice is to bolster this site and keep this community strong, but be an object of hatred, than so be it. The wiki is more important to me than my popularity. The community that built this place deserve to have their contributions honoured and read.
You're trying to be loyal to both. I accept that, and appreciate it. I choose to be loyal to the community here and remove myself from the community there as I see what was done as deceitful and divisive. My opinion and feelings are no less valid for being contrary to your own. Treat me with the respect to honour my decisions and feelings as much as I honour yours.                               Puppy's talk page11:54 23 Jan

edit Francis I

Your changes did not seem to make the article better, in my opinion, so I reverted them. Also, you made several spelling errors when you were "fixing" the article. "Shouting at an African man for wearing a condom" is closer to the truth than shouting at someone for not wearing one. Closer to the truth = funnier. Remember, you are still welcome to edit here, but please make honest attempts at improvement. I know you can do it. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 23:39, March 28, 2013 (UTC)

Sim...Leverage invited me to make some changes. I didn't realise it was featured already and if I had known I wouldn't have edited it. Thank you for teaching me the holy gospel of humour writing. As we all know...Popes go around shouting at people every day and we ought to capture that as close to the truth as possible. Do teach me more about how you'd like me to be funny. --ShabiDOO 23:46, March 28, 2013 (UTC)
I stand humbled. I didn't know Leverage put you up to it. But I really didn't want to see spelling mistakes in a featured article, particularly one on our front page right now. With all the tension between this site and the fork (with both sides claiming to be the "real site"), there is still some question of users from the fork coming over to sabotage this site though I sincerely hope that that would not be the case. I am trying to assume good faith here, but with everything going on today (4 bans and counting), maybe I am just having a bad day. Maybe I should have just fixed the spelling of your additions, as I would have done if you had modified the article on the mirror site (which has a much lower quality standard). Unfortunately, humor writing has never been a strength of mine, as you probably know, so its kind of like having someone who is tone deaf criticize a piece of music. I probably have a different taste in humor than you do, besides. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 00:03, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
In fact, responding to one's own error by writing "Thank you for teaching me the holy gospel of humour writing....Do teach me more about how you'd like me to be funny" does risk being mistaken for sabotage in its own right. Spıke Ѧ 00:13 29-Mar-13
I promise you Sims that I have no special loyalty to either website. I hosted happymonkey over there because it would mean more participants and I edit some articles exclusivey there because the edgy shock-like tone of some of my articles wont get featured here. But youll notice I edit the rest of my articles on both sites and I still vfh here and keep up with the forums etc. You were completely correct to revert my edits. There really shouldn't be changes once its featured...especially on the day it's on the main page. As per people from the fork being douchebags about this is very very lame. I'm glad people like Ali and Funnybony can jump from one site to another still with their energy and enthusiasm. We should award them by raping them with AND without condoms! --ShabiDOO 00:17, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
SPIKE ... I don't think any of the admins or regular users would honestly believe that I would waste my time sabotaging a wiki. What paranoia. --ShabiDOO 00:17, March 29, 2013 (UTC)
Even featured articles do get changed (usually at least one day after featuring though), as evidenced by changes to articles featured in say, 2005 or 2007. Some changes are for the better. I reinstated your changes to the article for now, but in the future, please don't make major changes to featured articles without warning. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 00:31, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your comment on VFH about my article, Capitalism: in grammar. I'm a noob here (joined on 31st March 2013) so I've got a lot to learn. Aleister reccomended you for pee reviews. I've been reviewing quite a lot of articles recently however no one else has so now there's almost only my articles left to review. I'd be grateful if you could review one of my articles, especially the aforementioned article and then you could give my ideas on improving the formating.

edit Corporation

I agree exactly with your change summary on what to do with the list of "Prominant [sic] Corporations". The only purpose is to guide the reader to articles on corporations (which a Category or a nav-template would do just fine), or else to crack wise with nonexistent articles (I see you got to "Dewey Cheatham & Howe"--Three Stooges, wasn't it?) that would just frustrate the reader who clicks on them. Anon will add to a list like this forever, and never care that he is linking to things that don't exist. Spıke Ѧ 23:46 12-Apr-13

No problem ScottPat. But I don't see any reply anywhere. My cateracts are in the way. --ShabiDOO 17:56, July 22, 2013 (UTC)
I just noticed no reply as well despite the fact I wrote one. Maybe it didn't save. I'll write it here for you:
It is an article about the Atheist Alliance of America not the AAA however I thought the similarity in acronyms was funny hence why I combined the AAA breakdown service with the atheist organisation. AAA batteries are a type of battery and makes sense in this concept as AAA is the name of the organisation so it is their batteries. The only thing that connects all three (American Automobile Association, Atheist Alliance of America and AAA batteries) is the acronym AAA. Therefore it was an article about an atheist society with reference to car (why the flip would one say automobile!) breakdown services not vice versa. Hope that makes sense. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 06:34, July 25, 2013 (UTC)
Hi Scott...that makes sense...but this doesn't really come across to me when reading the article. It was hard...for me at tell what the focus of the article was. In the first two sentences you introduce the AAA as about atheists...but in the third page it seems like the purpose of the AAA is to rescue them on the hi-way. This was the first source of confusion for me. Perhaps if the introduction avoided other references but those were put in the rest of the would be a bit more clear. Or if the sentence read "the AAA also offers road side asistance...but only to Atheists" or something of the like...there wouldn't be such a strong juxtaposition of two different concepts. Then...later...also in the introduction: "Most members are trained mechanical engineers". least in the introduction...I'm not sure what the article is it about Atheists or road side asistance. Any ways...something to think about. --ShabiDOO 14:27, July 25, 2013 (UTC)

LOL. Your first to find an article that has a long list in it...and edit that list down to only those items that are relevant and funny (articles here are plagued with sections that are long lists that aren't at all funny). Even if it means reducing it all to only three items. If only one or two remain...convert them into a sentence or paragraph...or better yet convert the whole list into a funny paragraph.

Examples of articles with lists that could use some cuts: Dhaka Metropolitan Police section of the Dhaka article.

I've just asked you a question there. Thanks again for your input on it - I appreciate your perspective.                               Puppy's talk page08:38 08 Oct 2013

edit Forum:A new VFS is in order

Unless I am mistaken my good man we are both in agreement that Rule 5 definitely shouldn't be removed but the current "joke" rule is out of date and needs updating. You must surely agree it needs changing, even if you do not agree that the change should be to my proposed replacement rule. I encourage you to vote for change. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 21:29, October 13, 2013 (UTC)

I actually like the joke the way it is. If more people vote to keep the joke rather than delete it...then your question will be relevant. However none of this explains what to do with this squirrel meatloaf I found under these turkey basters. --ShabiDOO 22:31, October 13, 2013 (UTC)
I'm against keeping the joke in there, as the way it sits it suggests that following each VFS someone is de-opped, which isn't the case. And tbh that's my major issue with the joke - it is unclear as to what the practice should actually be. Having said that, I had no idea squirrels could make meatloaf.                               Puppy's talk page11:30 13 Oct 2013
Yeah Puppy. I get what you mean now. I suppose it would be a helarious competition to come up with something relevant and funny. --ShabiDOO 13:38, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Jeez, I just found out this whole rule book change was being discussed and voted on, and will have to get back to it in the next few days. Looks like a hundred things to vote on, so in that way it's like Miss Universe, only without the ribbons and flashbulbs. The voting page scares me, and I came here to calm down a little and catch my breath. Did you see the stuff hanging from the sides of the page, the spiders and all? Damn, might as well be logging onto Little Bo Peep being read by Boris Karloff. Aleister 18:52 14-10 can be sure that this is the place to calm down. Be sure of that. On this can come here...breathe in an out a little...shoot the breeze...calm down and take it easy in general. Everyone knows that the least argumentative...least disruptive...least divisive...least critical...least emotional and least stubborn person on the wiki. Where else would you want to calm down than a place with such an amicable user like me? Huh? You wouldn't even find one if you actually gave a fuck. Seriosuly!
While you're here...I was thinking. Why don't we do a days of the week thing on this fork like we did on the other. Even if as little as three of us participate...I think it's a good idea. Also...check out the pee review lite forum. Thats more important than the VFS in my opinion. Also...calm down. Relax. Aleister...your muscles are like as hard as a Russian fuselage. Don't smoke the British Columbian marajuana you usualy do...but instead come to my talk page...and relax. Just stop by here and shoot a game or two of Angry hedgehogs...with live hedgehogs being slingshotted at real donkeys in life sized structures of wooden beams and panes of glass and torture devices like the saw movies...only the kind that torture that makes you laugh and relax. Yeah. That's the life! --ShabiDOO 21:34, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Am calmer now, after the drinks you left and some of that homegrown. I wouldn't participate in another days of the week contest (and I'll move my entry over here at some point, after I work on it some more, it's very bad and stublike now) 'cause we did that one already, my time on-site is limited, and I've got some of my writing attention off site for awhile. But dogs still run wild when they run, and if a witch can't pin the tail on the donkey well then who can? Ha! Aleister 14-10
Off site? You mean the conspiracy wiki? Or some thing else? Something cool? Something hot dog? --ShabiDOO 21:58, October 14, 2013 (UTC)
Nah, not enough written to even talk about. I'm procrastinating by editing here, but that's getting some of the pages which may become features on either site into better shape. Thanks for all your vlotes by the way, very appreciated. I've got a Halloween page which won't be ready this year (for the third year in a row, maybe?) so that's one I'd like to get into very good shape for next Halloween. For me the conspiracy wiki is mainly used for science stories, history, both odds and ends in the news and major breaking news, and for another place where play is allowed on the threads. I haven't written there much lately either, but awhile back MrN and I had a big concersation on one of those moon-landing-doubter threads. Have to go now, food calls its clarion call, and I respond. Aleister 14-10
Once you have whatever it is published or put online or whatever...give me a link or isbn. And will always have a place here to play real life angry hedgehogs! ok? --ShabiDOO 22:17, October 14, 2013 (UTC)

edit Pile-on votes on VFS

Would you please take that back? Although I am a vocal proponent for the new questions you pose at Forum:A new VFS is in order, Puppy gave everyone a week's notice of this ballot and a chance for everyone to discuss what the issues are, and this never came up. I know there are some procedures that use amendable motions. And, some things are group edits. This isn't, nor is it open season to slide in other things you would like voted on. Yes, ScottPat started it, and I thought that was out of order as well. There is no final edit to any page on a wiki, and this can be achieved later. You should have started a separate Forum for separate issues, as I did on the nuclear clause of the VFS rules. Spıke Ѧ 01:27 18-Oct-13

Sorry SPIKE...I appreciate the have concrete order in the chaos of a wiki...but now is the time to ask this question and the forum is the place to do it...with all due respect to Puppy's handling of the forum. I doubt he or other users would mind. --ShabiDOO 02:23, October 18, 2013 (UTC)
Oops… read this after I'd already made edits to that forum. ScottPat's additional vote came in shortly ad this round of voting was started, so it made little difference to the overall voting. These ballots are coming in late in the piece. While I have no issue with the votes being held, I'm thinking better to hold off until after this round of voting - similar to what I've already said on Spike's other forum relating to the similar topic.
Part of my rationale behind the time frame for votes is that often when we hold a ballot we end up with follow-on votes. This round will finish with at least another week to go prior to a potential VFS being held. The fortunate thing is that it's a follow-on concept as well - the basic premise of “should admins get special privilege?” is covered in the existing topics. “Should this be limited to active admins?” is a logical progression, but we can answer the follow on question after the first question is clarified.
There is also a follow on based upon Simsie's conditional vote on the +7 requirement, along with the follow on from Spike's suggestion re the “wiki-terrorism” rule.
Hope that makes sense. Keep in mind that no vote on a wiki is final - we always ha room to change and - hopefully - grow.                               Puppy's talk page02:22 18 Oct 2013
I'm rather creeped out by the intensity of the formalism and micro-managing going on recently on the wiki...but I suppose on this particular forum it's reasonable. What is the "wiki-terrirism" rule? --ShabiDOO 18:42, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

Perhaps you thought you were replying to me, but the last comment was by Simsie. I have not used the ban-stick when you called my comments to Denza "harsh" and "bitter" (even while agreeing with the essence of what I was saying) but I will not have you calling other Uncyclopedians "nasty"--and in a nasty manner yourself--Not just the assertion that some conduct was offputting to a new user but that someone did so with exactly that in mind. That is armchair psychology. Simsie and I are both trying to organize this website by putting appropriate things at BHOP and keeping inappropriate things out of the mainspace encyclopedia.

At the core, it seems you are annoyed at having to share a website with personalities who are different from yours (or in different moods). Sometimes too funny, sometimes not funny enough, sometimes "creepy" in devotion to formality, sometimes doing stuff without input. So we get a daily piece of your mind. There is nothing we can do about it but be more like you. Only, that is not the goal here. Spıke Ѧ 23:46 19-Oct-13

I bet it was not trolling but criticising. Anton (talk) 08:46, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
Spike I fail to remember any incident that exposed Shabidoo's annoyance for having to share a website wih different personalities from his. Would you mind giving us more examples? Oh, and what Anton said. --Mimo&Maxus (Talk) 08:58, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

No, Symbol keep vote Keep.. Anton (talk) 09:03, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
Simsie just banned Spike, which gives me confidence that the oligarchy can still turn on each other. However I do believe recently that Shabidoo has gone round critising the general mood of this website as "un-friendly" and "unfunny" and then himself not helping to remedy the situation and instead blame others. Community Projects have been opened up and jokes including in-jokes are still running on this website and yet he still continues to criticise. I wouldn't mind if he criticised as long as he helps the community himself. His contributions are not non-existant but he could certainly do a lot more to help.
My best anology would be if the userbase on this website were attempting to scale Mount Everest and they had to carry Shabidoo up there with them but he's already climbed the mountain himself before and realises half-way to the top that it isn't as fun as it was the first time so he then complains loudly about it.
I therefore think that Shabidoo is attempting to get back to the Uncyclopedia of the past and not allow it to progress in the new way it is going. I don't dislike Shabidoo for this and respect him as an amazing writer but why can't he just write funny stuff and give constructive criticism where it is due without having to sit down and have a tantrum that Uncyclopedia is not what it used to be. I mean that in the politest possible way and I'm sorry if it is harsh but I needed to voice my opinion. I still like him for the comedy genius he is and he undoubtabley gives amazing reviews of people's work.

I have to admit that Shabidoo is often criticised for criticising others, but he is a wonderful critic and I saw that he was often banned in past for expressing his opinion loudly enough. Anton (talk) 10:44, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

Shabidoo is entitled to his opinions and can call out any admin if he thinks they have made a mistake. However, general trolling, goading etc well eventually lead to a response. Try that over at the Fork, and the response - to be fair on all other users - should be the same. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:59, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

Goading users is pointless indeed. We should all call it out when it happens. My tired frustrated attack was passive agressive and out of line...we all agree. But all of the over the top accusations and unconstructive lables and accusations and being told what uncyclopedia is and the bad faith and assuming the worst should be called out every time it happens. --ShabiDOO 02:33, October 21, 2013 (UTC)

edit Hello

And may the road rise up to meet you and ladies be your laptop. Thanks for your kind words about my deserved ban and this present thing, which I don't know what. I am not one of the Spike bashers though, and he can do just about anything and I wouldn't change my mind. He held this place together with spit and polish for most of this year, and encouraged and helped guide most of the new writers who've taken leadership positions here, so he has my respect and awe. I was gone for most of the year myself. That said, he's a poopypants sometimes, but give and take is the name of some kind of game. Aleister 27-10

There is no doubt that SPIKE is a magnum presence on the site and his commitment is worth most of ours combined. So...yeah...respect. However, we've all put in hundreds of hours here and we all deserve an atmosphere of good faith . Im going to unwatch the talk pages and forums and stick to writing. It will be better that way. --ShabiDOO 01:50, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

edit 2 wizards and blah blah

Just for clarification - I wasn't saying the article was shocking - just pointing it it was related to a shock porn meme. It's more the memeish nature I was referring to. Which can work well - see 2 Girls 1 Calculus Equation. It's just that this relies on pointing to 3 jokes that have a limited audience, so most noobs won't get the joke. Not that I want you to change your vote, just thought I'd add the clarification.                               Puppy's talk page07:34 27 Oct 2013"

So many pages here have a limited audience that likely four-fifths of our pages are never looked at! These in-jokes at least have a history, a following of perverts, and this one is a page by Socky that marries two in-joke lines! And if it's huffed maybe we can add it to the bottom of the neoclassic winner of the Tubes of Grease Award, Puddle of shit. Aleister many moons from then
Hi Puppy...I should have phrased my against vote better. I understand why you guys want to delete the article and I respect it. I just disagree. --ShabiDOO 17:58, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Shabidoo, your most recent addition to the ballot is problematic too. ScottPat's comment has the problems you note, but this could be an escalation; your advocacy of Good Faith necessarily implies that there was bad faith. Please move that stuff off the ballot, like our other stuff was. There is too much comment about the validity of various people's votes; and yes, I was in at the start. Spıke Ѧ 18:51 27-Oct-13
"Don't put words in my mouth"? Since when did I do that? I just repeated what you said. If you think this is genuinely funny then so be it I was just trying to re-iterate some users' views that you seemed to be voting keep giving your reason why is that it combines two in-jokes. I was just saying that this is not a valid excuse. Your reply to me confirms that you have another reason to vote keep that has to do with humour and I respect that but there is no need to attack me for it! Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:57, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
I don't prefer memes over incomprehensibility to visitors unless the article is pure gold helarious. --ShabiDOO 19:01, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
OK. Thanks for changing your comment at VFD. I appreciate that there is comedy that I will not get and the wonderful thing about comedy is that it is a personal scope of what you think is funny. I would change to abstain perhaps if there was something else added to the article. It just looks bland. Maybe some text, somehow. Dunno. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:14, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
I was thinking the same thing. I hope it's not deleted but it absolutely needs improvement. Aleister might be the perfect guy to try. --ShabiDOO 19:19, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

edit And now for a REAL in-joke

What I thought would be a great idea for an in-joke was to be to mock the fact that everyone demands encyclopedic articles here and write an encyclopedic article on an in-joke that overdoes the emphasis on encyclopedic nature. I'm not sure how exactly this could be achieved but if cleverly done it would give more than a chuckle to the reader. Perhaps you could try on this in-joke or maybe on another in-joke. Just an idea. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 19:33, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Of course, everyone doesn't demand that; I demand that, or at least that if you are writing news releases, you go to UnNews, or UnBooks, UnScripts, etc. A flagrantly bad article, like a flagrantly partisan one (like the recently userspaced hatchet-job on Ted Cruz) has the fatal flaw of not being easy to tell from the real thing. A flagrant violation of one of our rules is not funny to anyone but us. Spıke Ѧ 19:42 27-Oct-13
Even a flagrantly faithful imitation of Wikipedia is VFD meat here. We had a marvelously tedious set of articles on the Interstate Highway System, complete with tedious tables of landmarks by mile marker, with every little detail made ridiculous. Dozens of articles, and virtually no one got the joke. Spıke Ѧ 19:44 27-Oct-13
"Everyone" was just a way of saying some people would like most of the articles to be encyclopedic looking. Me included personally. Of course we don't want a wall of text like wikipedia but I always thought that Cotswold Olimpick Games was a mock of a wikipedia article being overly encyclopedic about a topic very few people know or care about (admittedly I'm not from the West Country but I didn't know about it before!) and having tonnes of writing about it. And that got the highest score on VFH I have ever seen in my time on this site so that technique did seem to work then. Mocking encyclopedic nature can be funny if done right but I agree not in an article with walls of text and pointless tables. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 20:00, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
Another example: An article ridiculing Fred Phelps by exaggerating his point of view: Almost impossible to write, as his real point of view is already so exaggerated. If you (that is, the author) think the result is funny, it is only because you thought he was funny before you came along. Spıke Ѧ 20:09 27-Oct-13
Oddly enough our most “popular” articles are those that break this mould. Looking at previous top 10s we have very few encyclopaedic articles. Of course, the fact that they stand out may be also to blame.                               Puppy's talk page08:22 27 Oct 2013
Opinions differ, but I view the appeal of unencyclopedic articles the same way I viewed Saturday Night Live once they jumped-the-shark and decided it was cool to break the Fourth Wall and the camera should back up to show the entire stage set: Comedians who have been together too long wanting the audience not to look at their comedy but look at them. Spıke Ѧ 20:31 27-Oct-13
The best articles we have comment on some aspect of the open-wiki project and are funny for all[1]. I don't expect more or less when I vote :) Good luck with your new injoke. --ShabiDOO 20:49, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
  1. Though it took me a long time to finally agree with Romartus re:navalism.
This is not my new in-joke. It is an idea to turn an in-joke even funnier or resurect an old one. I agree that un-encyclopedic articles can be the best. I have written the odd one or two myself. I like both un-encyclopedic and encyclopedic but un-encyclopedic only work when they are very good and so ought to be more rare statistically. I don't like failed un-encyclopedic and because they are harder to write they appear more often than failed encyclopedic ones. Sir ScottPat (talk) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 22:55, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
I've been wanting to test which space has a higher percentage of decent/featurable articles. I'll read a random sample of the best spaces. I expect UnNews is the highest but I'm curious about the rest. --ShabiDOO 00:18, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
Hmmm… I might have a way to do that quicker. Let me get back to you.                               Puppy's talk page02:44 28 Oct 2013
You can design a bot to measure the quality of an article?
Of course. It looks to see if I've ever edited it. If I have then it's featureable, otherwise it's terrible.                               Puppy's talk page03:44 28 Oct 2013
Of suppose if Aleister has touched can be considered VFQD? --ShabiDOO 04:00, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
