Content warning

Could you be so kind as to remove the content warning? I'm sorry but every time I copy and paste an Uncyclopedia onto a word document, it somehow winds up with the content warning at the beginning along with that stupid image of the ugly guy in the mask. Sorry but that's what I think Welcome to the machine MATTHLOCK 20:29, July 13, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry, I wasn't the person who put the content warning there - thank Wikia for that. Someone was good enough to change the content warning from the default to my suggested warning, that was my only role in the content warning, also, the background of the content warning has been changed from the default, but I have no admin powers nor any magickal wikia staff ability to remove any content warning. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:17, July 16, 2012 (UTC)

Oh, hello.

I remember "adopting" you about thirty million internet years ago, which is about 4 years in real time. I'm glad that me doing all I could (i.e. nothing at all) helped you move on to great things, like writing the content warning, so 9 year olds everywhere can read it and feel disappointment for the first time in their lives.

Nothing important or worth talking about. College is weird, and things like that. I figured that since I didn't do much in the 5 years I've had an account here that I'll make a small personal goal to contribute something worthwhile. Drugs Are Bad (2012-08-4 21:37 UTC)

Censoring Drawings etc

Hi Sims. I had the impression from Sannse that art work would be exempt (for now at least) as regards censoring. I presume this would also include drawings and diagrams. I noticed you have already censored a few which I think would be allowed to stay. In particular the 'nude man and woman' image is the one on the Voyager spacecraft. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:33, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

I wasn't sure, I thought she said "classical artwork". I hope you are right, feel free to revert where you think I made a mistake. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 19:35, October 17, 2012 (UTC)
OK I will revert the ones I am going to interpret as art work/drawings etc and then see. The issue of the photos I don't know still. To have an article about Playboy magazine and then to censor it, image wise doesn't make sense in my view, otherwise having censored photos all over it is like Wikia adding their own unwitting 'humour' angle to the page. However, I will leave this for now and let the others decide. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:45, October 17, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! :)

Thanks for correcting my article Present, my first language isn't English so I really appreciate it that you take the time to correct it, I didn't know about that some corrections of you need to be written like that in English, so now I know. :) Reality2 (talk) 21:36, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

You're welcome. I figured it needed a little polishing before it was feature-worthy. Note that I added some links to other articles, too. Every article should link to at least one or two other articles. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:38, November 6, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, I 'll keep that in mind. Thanks. Reality2 (talk) 21:39, November 6, 2012 (UTC)


I heard you might have a broken computer or two

I might be able to fix that, remotely. Unless it's a physical problem, in which case no. But I can almost guarantee I can speed it up. What OS(s) do your computer(s) run? A (Ruins)15:11 17 November 2012

The computer that's broken runs Windows Vista. The problem isn't just it being slow, which could be attributed to the fact that the hard drive is nearly full, but that it won't boot at all, not even into safe mode, when it is plugged in. It starts up normally when unplugged and running on battery power (Its a Toshiba Satellite notebook, and about 5 years old). It is currently not connected to the internet, I'd have to plug in a cable or hope that the wireless signal on my router isn't borked. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 20:02, November 17, 2012 (UTC)

Cupcakes

Bizzeebeever nominated this on VFD. I saw your limited role in the History and abstained with a request that you take charge of the article. Spıke ¬ 15:09 23-Nov-12

Thank you for (possibly) stepping up to rewrite this. Your description (on VFD) of what is needed, I agree with. Let me know if I can assist you. Technically, the new article's name should probably be Cupcake, singular. Spıke ¬ 02:18 25-Nov-12

Origins?

Quaker Eat Me

I'm thinking it was the voracious William Penn who invented the cupcake, in colonial America, inspired by his underendowed wife (whose name his writings only give as "Cupcake"). It was originally known as the D-cup Cake. Separately, you describe it as a muffin-sized cake, but wouldn't a muffin be a cupcake-sized...nah, forget it. Spıke ¬ 02:57 25-Nov-12

Yikes!

We already seem to have an article at Cupcake, though people since November 2008 have been mostly cleaning off stains left by Anons. You could treat this as another source for material for you to make excellent. Spıke ¬ 18:02 26-Nov-12

Isle of Man

Thank you for patrolling this article. You reverted Lost-interest to the work of Anon, but they seem to be the same person. While you were doing that, I was evaluating all his changes of the evening to see what should be kept. I also left a belligerent message on his talk page and advised Romartus that there might be a conflict brewing. Spıke ¬ 02:18 25-Nov-12

Hello

I saw you down the hall here, and wanted to say 'yo. It will be worthwhile to keep lots of this site running again, just to keep the lights on is probably enough. Hopefully lots of users will be going between the two wikis and making both of them the best possible uncyclopedia. It might be fun when a few of the others are on once the weekend passes. We have to get Funnybony to use recent changes and hang out with people. Puppy, he's probably asleep. Aleister 23:14 Uncy's 8th Birthday!

Unless they make me an admin on the new site, there will probably be more for me to do over here than over there, since I'm not much good at writing new articles. I can't see letting this site go down the tubes, it might be bad for the reputation for the new site as well. If things get bad enough, I might try writing a mediocre article (since there probably will be no more FFW on this wiki) once in awhile, then copy it to the new wiki just to see if it gets deleted. This site is likely to become a target for bandcruft and schoolcruft pretty soon, along with various listcruft. Since the most avid deletionists are mostly gone (except for SPIKE) probably nothing will be done about it. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:35, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
Well, we don't know if it will tip over from its own weight or if critters will roam the halls. You are right, at least I think so, if the site gets overrun it may be bad for both sites. But it's way too early to tell what's going to happen, a couple of weeks should see the trend firmly in place. I intend to check "my" pages though, and revert the animals who creep just before dawn. And we should do a forest fire week, for sure, and get rid of things that are really bad. At least some of them. I think what might happen at some point is Wikia will close the site to IP's, and maybe eventually it will be like a museum, just as I predicted in Uncyclopedia is almost full!!! Al 23:43 5-1-'13
As you can both understand, this has been a busy weekend! The Wikia Uncyclopedia will continue, in what shape that will be is up to the users. Myself and ChiefjusticeDS have opted to maintain this site. As you can imagine, there is still a lot of dust in the air so it may take a few more days to see where everything (and everyone) has landed. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:30, January 6, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks

For the rollbacks, welcomes and general all round good egg work here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:37, January 9, 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome. I plan on hanging around both sites, depending on my work schedule. Besides, having this site stay halfway decent will help convince people who visit to check out the new site, too. This site is still predominant on search engine results, since Google pulls key search words from the content warning on this site. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:47, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
Seconding the thanks. Also tongue-lashings when appropriate. Spıke ¬ 23:54 9-Jan-13

HowTo:Drive your car out of a lake

It looks like Murder Frog has dibs on your Pee Review, but I'll give you my two cents. This is refreshing. HowTo is normally a namespace for kids who think that adult writing has to be nagging, and they nag. This is the most playful HowTo I can remember.

Biggest problem: The article is too short, by at least half. There are many places to go with this one, and you'll find them.

On photos, DHL Express has one that might be of use to show corporate training programs on driving cars out of lakes.

Wording: The intro ought not refer to the article itself; that's almost the first person. I'd minimize the use of "you" for the "encyclopedia" tone. That's just my style and yours might be different, but if you then break out of it and address the reader directly, it might pack even more punch.

You might do a treatment of common ways that cars get into bodies of water and need to be driven out, but it's pretty funny to just take it for granted that it always happens. ("I hate it when that happens!") "You will want the car to sink" is too gentle; in fact, you need the car to sink. "Hopefully" (as well as not meaning anyone is hopeful, as always) detracts a little from the authoritative tone.

Possible additional topics: If your engine isn't waterproof, how to waterproof it (newsprint? spray it with paint? guess you can't). Useful applications for a car if you find you can't drive it out (man-made coral reef). Underwater features on the map? What are the usual underwater obstacles you'd have to drive around?

Keep having fun with this! Spıke ¬ 01:24 4-Dec-12


I renamed this HowTo, as shown above, to eliminate excess capital letters from the page title. Also, Imrealized has contributed and left an explanation to you on the talk page of the HowTo. Cheers. Spıke ¬ 13:15 29-Jan-13

Thanks for letting me know. Work has kept me busy lately. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 06:40, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Promotion to Major

Although nobody cares since Rev. Zim ulator abdicated, you have been elected Admin, have been praised as a calming and helpful influence on the website in a strategic timezone from which to swat down vandals, and are thus entitled to the rank of Major of Uncyclopedia. This is likely to be a multi-step promotion and carry a significant percentage increase in your monthly stipend, and you know what they say about five percent of nothing. I have already sewn my own stripe on (as, again, nobody cares) and the bleeding should subside real soon.

Thank you for your vote for me, and for the reservations you expressed. If you see them play out, I hope you will be as willing as you have been in the past to let me know how it looks or give me a subtle hint (after first removing the spiked heel, please) to tone it down.

Congratulations to you both, and I expect to be banned by each of you many times in the near future. My company of vandals, who communicate via email and meet at a pub every two weeks, will now target you two as a welcoming committee to the ranks of the exalted. Every effort will be made to destroy this dump and to place NSFW templates on all the Furby articles, and our vow is to keep on doing so until nobody, anywhere, wants to ever look at a Furby again. Aleister 12:36 4-2-'13

PS--Simsie, I've added your name to Active Admins--where you are uniquely without further description. Correct this if you wish. Spıke ¬ 12:44 4-Feb-13

Congrats Sims. The welcome pack will explain more...mine came with different coloured ban sticks and Nicole Scherzinger chained to a radiator. It may have been updated since then. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:29, February 4, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for all the congratulations. Later this month I might be less busy, and likely less busy in March, then busy again in April, then probably on all the time in May. I'll have to take a look around. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 00:15, February 5, 2013 (UTC)

Off-site stuff

I would like the page http://mirror.uncyc.org/wiki/Rossall_School to be deleted. The page is showing up in Google searches and is derogatory to the School. It's also out of date and would only be funny to pupils of this school who attended more than 6 years ago so adds no comedy value to your site. Thanks --62.6.160.99 09:35, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

The best way to contact admins for other sites is on those sites. I'll have a look at that shortly.                               Puppy's talk page09:49 19 Feb 2013
I've had a quick look at the page. Being “derogatory” to an institution is not a basis for a page to be deleted - this site is based upon satire after all. Being listed on searches in Google also is not a reason to delete an article - in fact if it attracts more site traffic there is a benefit to it's continued existence. Being out of date is a mild concern, but as the mirror site is a repository - in part - of older articles, timeliness is not a major concern. Being based upon in-jokes is a concern, but a cursory reading suggests that someone who is not part of that clique may get some amusement from it. However, that's only on a first read basis, and there are definite elements of stupidity that put this article well outside of our style guide for humour - HTBFANJS. As this is a quality control judgement on a lengthy piece, however, I will read it fully before making a decision - which means it will take time, and is not a high priority concern. If you wish to discuss this particular piece in more detail please contact me via my talk page on that site.                               Puppy's talk page10:22 19 Feb 2013
I looked over the page, and it hasn't been edited for some years now except by anons, and they haven't improved the article at all. It looks like material that would be quickly VFD on this site, and has had an ICU tag on it for years. I did not find the page terribly funny, so I have deleted it. Please note it will still show up on internet archive sites and caches for some time, nothing we can do about that.-- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:45, February 19, 2013 (UTC)

Quote stuff, brought here per Spike's suggestion

This page shows what combining George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin's unquotables into one page would look like. All three of those pages are short, Thomas Jefferson's is particularly stubby.

Unquotable:History of Unquotablelooks like vanity, aka some user giving his personal story as a persecuted artist. This might be QVFD bad, but since I am cleaning quotespace, taking to QVFD without contacting someone in favor of keeping quotespace seems underhanded.

on Unquotable:Aristotle, there is an exchange between Alexander the Great and Aristotle that is a parody of star wars text. While it is mildly amusing, I don't think it goes on a quotepage. It feels like it might go somewhere, but that is a script, not a quote. --Mn-z 18:05, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

I added History of… to VFD. This means there is a community consensus on it, rather than single user decision. It has been around too long, and is of a sufficient length, and is intelligible enough that it's not really QVFD anyway. There's an exchange on Unquotable:Captain Oblivious as well, which I left in there as I liked it, but I've kept it out of the quote-like template. Technically a passage from a script is still a valid quote - that's done with Shakespeare regularly - so if it's not long enough to warrant an Unscript of its own I'd just leave as is. (Saying this prior to looking at it, btw.)                               Puppy's talk page10:27 21 Feb 2013
Combining the George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Ben Franklin unquotables into a Founding Fathers unquotables looks like it works better than the individual pages did. I would be in favor of it. On Unquotable:Aristotle, I agree the dialogue looks like it doesn't belong there, and being a knockoff of Star Wars, isn't terribly original either. The History of Unquotable is something I'd hate to see go, since it helps explain the origin of quotespace. It is kind of like an old in-joke, but probsbly before either of our time here. It explains how and why quotespace was created, and does so effectively. It could be funnier, but it is what it is. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 00:51, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
We seem to be unanimous on the Founding Fathers reorg. Simsie, my only concern was that, since you have opposed nuking the namespace, an opinion that with our sparse numbers makes it hard to claim consensus, no one do major reorg that might seem to be working around you but rather keep you in the loop. On History of Unquotable, as I say at VFD, this does not read like the heritage of Uncyclopedia, but as though it belongs on some user's personal page. Spıke ¬ 01:01 22-Feb-13
On the contrary, this does seem like a small chapter in Uncyclopedia history. Uncyclopedian history necessitates mentioning the various authors. Since this is biased mostly towards one author, if you want to move it to Some User's userspace though, go ahead, since that user claims most of the credit, but please don't delete it outright. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 01:07, February 22, 2013 (UTC)
That sounds like a solution. Spıke ¬ 01:10 22-Feb-13
I have an alternative option, but not one I'd suggest here. History of Uncyc pages should fit into the Uncyclopedia name space. That's separate from the random page search (which is one of my concerns), but can remain linked to mainspace articles (which is my concern for user spaced stuff). Uncyclopedia:Der Unwehr was moved recently under exactly that rationale. I wouldn't suggest it for this specific page, as I still think this falls short on QC, but it's an option that we can keep open for similar cases in the future.                               Puppy's talk page10:54 22 Feb 2013
