Ed Balls

New user TellyGunge replaced this redirect with a large article with a single joke. I reverted him and he seems to have quit. Would you please review my decision and decide if the page is worth keeping? Spıke ¬ 16:27 23-Apr-13

I agree with your decision for a few reasons:
  1. Memes become old meme (and thus not funny) after awhile.
  2. Uncyclopedia is not a catalog of memes.
  3. We already have AAAAA! which uses the same type of repetition and was original to this site.
  4. The article didn't involve an original twist on the meme, unlike the Gangnam Style article on that meme.

-- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:37, April 23, 2013 (UTC) P.S. I added a quote to the people with distinguished names article as a nod to the meme since the name wasn't in there already, but I don't think that repeating the one joke is enough for one article.

You still awake?!

Hope you saw my post-edit to my scolding of you from an hour ago on my talk page. Your reading of the documentation was right and mine was backwards. Spıke ¬ 11:31 24-Apr-13

DDWingate

New user DDWingate has a problem with your (or my) post-editing of him, expressed at User talk:DDWingate. Or he simply has a problem with authority. I believe my edits are unremarkable, and that you can speak for yourself there. Spıke ¬ 12:44 24-Apr-13

Moomin Church of His Spaghettiness

This article has existed since 2005 but has only been added to by Anons and by one user without a talk page. Everything it has approaching humor is a coded reference to a named person who is not famous. If you confirm, I'll huff it as vanity. Spıke ¬ 12:33 25-Apr-13

I can see a wee bit of potential in this as a splinter break-off faction of the Flying Spaghetti Monster's main religion (Pastafarianism) (Moominism vs Mormonism, which is a splinter break-off faction of Protestantism), but I agree it really shouldn't have so much focus on a non-notable person. Regardless, I think if it was to be put on VFD the article would be VFD'd. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:49, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

I've done so. Spıke ¬ 00:37 26-Apr-13

Into the Wild Green Yonder

I've gotten through the Patrol backlog except for this one by Shmood3000. It strikes me as not of general interest except to Futurama fans, which leaves me out. Would you please evaluate it? Spıke ¬ 12:42 25-Apr-13

I've watched Futurama once or twice, which does not exactly leave me in the fan category. However, I looked up the Wikipedia article on this movie, and (1) it does exist, and (2) the plot summary is nearly identical in our article here as it is to the wikipedia article. Thus, it fails the humor test. Had it been a spoof of a Futurama movie, (a description of a movie that didn't exist but perhaps should) this would have been good. Had it added original humor to the plot, that would have also been good. But this article appears to do neither. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:53, April 25, 2013 (UTC)
PS I have userspaced this article, in case the author was still working on it and might add original humor to it in the future. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:56, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Good call, as an obvious spork is sometimes a basis for editing. Userspace is the right place for it. (I guess I could have consulted Wikipedia just as easily. The article simply convinced me that "you had to be there.") Spıke ¬ 17:28 25-Apr-13

User talk:StupidlyHilarious

Thank you for reverting his edits. I, as you already know, don't have rights to revert and was attempting to undo all his changes (all 40 of them). However he was simply undoing my changes so I had to warn him that he could be banned. Thanks Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 17:18, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

I do have rollbacks, but since you undid some of his changes, I had to go back in the history and edit an old version before all his changes. Hopefully he's back on the right track now since he acknowledged his mistakes. I would give you rollbacks, but I'm not a bureaucrat. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 17:23, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I know. He's not a vandal/maniac luckily and he's apolagised. I'm sure it was just misunderstanding which is forgiveable. Sir ScottPat Icons-flag-gb Scotland Flag 1 UnS CUN VFH (talk) 17:25, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Scott, even without Super Powers, any user can undo any edit; or use the History tab to view--and to revert any article--to any selected edition from the past. Spıke ¬ 17:28 25-Apr-13
PS--Simsie, I momentarily banned this guy for a week, then realized that some of my memories were instead of DDWingate of "F**k West Coast" fame. But his insistence on managing the transcript on his talk page so that it does not reflect unfavorably on himself is grossly at odds with our notions of common courtesy. Spıke ¬ 17:44 25-Apr-13
He's new here, he has a lot to learn. Unfortunately for some, common courtesy (or at least wiki etiquette) is part of what they need to learn. If they learn and pay attention when instructed, there is still hope I think. It looked to me more like he was trying to create a user page out of his talk page, so I am giving him some benefit of the doubt. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 17:49, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

Shin Bak-Singh

New user Shin Bak-Singh has created two virtually identical pages. (I think you deleted an additional one that he blanked based on misspelling it.) It seems unbelievable that these are designed to amuse the general reader, and likely that they were created to serve as a jumping-off point to the listed external website. (You go there and you see: "How many advertising agencies have a record label? Boxing Clever does, so that’s one. We’re just as passionate about...") I think he's a spammer. Spıke ¬ 14:31 26-Apr-13

The part about music snobbery I thought had potential but I too had questions about the external links. I think I will go delete those external links now. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 16:53, April 26, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks. On your Change Summary (The article should not be a promotion for a record company whose site is not completely up yet.)--Or whose is. Spıke ¬ 17:02 26-Apr-13

The sun

I welcomed the author and gave him my boilerplate on apparent advocacy in articles. Apart from the bad capitalization, this should be returned to userspace. It will take him a long time, perhaps forever, to lighten this up to the point that it will be funny to people who don't already agree with him. Spıke ¬ 00:01 27-Apr-13

I'll move it to his userspace. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 01:03, April 27, 2013 (UTC)
