Conclusion

Analysis

The Blank Section is a mix between a computer-painting, a collage and simple plagiarism. This artwork belongs to the neo-obvious movement but critics agree that several of its aspects are rather neo-ambiguous. The artwork is characterized by its concept and technique which are similar to those of Malevich's black square (oh, Malevich's Black Square, I apologize, that's the sixth review I am writing today). But, what makes it neo-ambiguous as well, is the fact that its simple structure and its title which represent artist's main ideas are not as simple as they seem to be, and the content reflects artist's thoughts as well, whilst neo-obvious art normally conveys a simple understanding of a classic, in this case, definitely Kasimir Malevich.

Criticism

I love this picture. Or artwork, whatever. I mean, I am not even a professional critic.

So, back to our blankness, it is actually a very ambiguous piece of art. At first sight, artist's ideas are obvious: he wanted to parody our society, which tries to be productive and effective, and is in fact blank. Just blank. However, it evolves and becomes blank, not just blank, but blank with something, and at the same time still blank. I mean that's obvious, you don't have to be a critic to understand that kind of stuff. And then it becomes Almost Blank (sorry for quoting the artist)! This actually conveys hope, hope that humans are becoming more sensible! Anyone who calls this artwork pessimistic is just ... pessimist.

So, I love it. I want to buy this painting. I want to hang it in my living-room and look at it, when I am feeling tired, feeling lonely, or when I have nothing else to do. And to buy it at a lower price, I will have to give it a bad mark.

  • Journalist: Hi, Sims! You are probably aware of the fact that you are the only active administrator of Uncyclopedia, who is subscribed to our newspaper. Do you have any explanation for this? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 19:20, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
No, but I'm sure the other admins do! I do have one theory however - the other admins visit subscribers' pages often enough to read the UnSignposts posted to other peoples' pages. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 22:24, October 30, 2013 (UTC)
  • Other Admin in Trench Coat: I get my copy off the news-stand, thank you. Spıke ¬ 22:28 30-Oct-13
  • Journalist: Clever! Now, do you think that reading our newspaper increases the chances of a user becoming and administrator? Or maybe diminishes them? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:43, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
Definitely not an admin Only if it gives tips for giving better oral sex.                               Puppy's talk page12:06 31 Oct 2013
  • Journalist: The previous question remains open, in case you would like to respond. Thanks, Pup.
The next question is supposed to be only for Sims, but if you really want to, you are allowed to respond: Simsie, would you like to be called administress? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 15:11, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
No, because I was under the impression that administrator is a unisex term. Besides, administress just sounds odd. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 08:33, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

When you were a child, did you wish to become a user on Uncyclopedia? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 18:04, November 1, 2013 (UTC)
When I was a child, the internet as we know it did not yet exist; TCP/IP protocols had not been standardized and the internet was not publicly available. However, I did like the idea of becoming an author, and even wrote one children's book of my own when I was in grade school. Well ok, I ripped off the first half of the story, then made up the second half because I couldn't remember the rest of the story. There was also another one I wrote, but that one wasn't much good. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 18:45, November 1, 2013 (UTC)
  • Journalist: You mean that I do not know when the Internet was invented?! I really do: it was during the second half of the 18th century!
Concerning the books, did you ask anyone to read them? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:24, November 2, 2013 (UTC)

Hetalia

Where do you reckon this arrived from? In one gulp, after uploading all its illustrations, and with a few red-links because our pages don't match their pages? And with a Change Summary by which brand-new user Opples ond bononas screams, look at me! Spıke ¬ 03:14 4-Nov-13

This certainly wasn't copied from the current copy on the Uncyclopedia mirror, and its style vaguely resembles an ED article. However, ED is down right now, so I cannot check to see if it is a match. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 03:29, November 4, 2013 (UTC)
Can't get to google cache from mobile, but from GS the ED version is, in part “... psychotic fandom that gets more attention than it deserves. ... Since the typical APH fan has the attention span of a four year old, ..... Mary Sues out of countries not represented in Hetalia yet.” Not the same text and I can't locate this elsewhere online. I'd be inclined to {{ICU}} it anyway, as it's typical fanboy rant with no real humour.
Wayback machine might turn up some other results though.                               Puppy's talk page07:26 04 Nov 2013

OhInternet

This article, which you've been involved in, got some good clean-up today by brand-new user Poko, but probably wants some continuing oversight to make sure it doesn't become a forum for EDiots to complain about their fortunes there. Spıke ¬ 21:09 5-Nov-13

You seem to be the last admin floating about at the moment, so...

Could you replace Template:VFSrules/rules with the text from Template:VFSrules/rules2? (Admin protected).                               Puppy's talk page09:59 07 Nov 2013

Template:India

I agree with you on removing {{India}} from the end of Islam. This reverts a change made in January by InMooseWeTrust, who also expanded the template to a lot of things that are found in India, but that no one would associate with India, for the express purpose of making a statement about India that might incidentally be funny. There is more on his talk page. Spıke ¬ 10:18 7-Nov-13

Deletion drop-down menu

It's okay to re-add those entries, but would you please make them more explicit and less an advertisement of a particular (non-policy) page? An author whose work we delete as meme-cruft (which might not have used Chuck Norris) ought to see a clearer explanation than that we are "de-Chucking" it. Spıke ¬ 21:45 7-Nov-13

VFD

Puppy is bugging me to get VFD moving again! You could be Vote Number 5 to send Invisia and Tunisia to the United Nations of Huffed Articles. Spıke ¬ 20:56 8-Nov-13

HTBFANJS

Of your post-edits at HTBFANJS, the only one I have a problem with is restoring the "giraffes and bathtubs" sentence. It is sort of bitchy and doesn't teach the noob anything except what a hard life Admins have.

The reason for today's edits is Romartus's observation (on his talk page) that we needed an HTBFANJS Lite, which suggested that regular HTBFANJS is still too big, and my observation that the old authors put too much of themselves into the article, cleverly showing examples of the rules they were stating, and even how they were clever enough to violate the rules they were stating. Section 3 is still huge, and the repetition about repetition is too massive for the cutesy point it's making. Spıke ¬ 20:56 8-Nov-13

I restored the "giraffes and bathtubs" sentence because it makes the point that one longer article is better than a series of several one-liner articles, which will get deleted. Not that it is that much work to delete unless they say, make 200 or so of them before we ban them. If you think you can word this point better, feel free to do so. I always liked the illustrative example of repetition about repetition, and thought the colors were a cute way of making this point just slightly less repetitive. Anytime we list things not to do, the list is going to be huge; I don't see any way of getting around this. I think giving the novice writer several technniques of what TO do to balance this out is useful. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:29, November 8, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the clarification; I've got text that should be clearer than "spamming the index." Spıke ¬ 21:35 8-Nov-13

Hmm, colors, so that's what those <SPAN>s were there for....On making 200 pages, I have really grown fond of Special:Nuke. Spıke ¬ 21:40 8-Nov-13

I have done some more edits to move and consolidate things. The only other place I would cut is the first two bullets of Section 7. The first bullet contains a list of relatively minor annoyances that should be covered by the general rules. The second bullet (the three examples) just doesn't explain what is bad about the first and good about the last. Spıke ¬ 00:48 9-Nov-13

God's deleted contributions

Thanks for the criticism, and I've polished it up so most of the run-on sentences have been fixed. The long one in the intro is on purpose, kind of like a ride, but even that was polished and cut into two. You have assisted the article greatly, mucho thanks. Aleister 12-11

Ok, that changes my vote. Thanks for your hard work on the article. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 20:11, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
Thank you! That's what I miss about reviews, the feedback, and you made me work like a dog. Thanks again, Aleister 12-11

Epicgenius

I have blocked Epicgenius for 1 day; attitude. You can see on his talk page how Mimo, I and others, tried to help him, notably about creating a signature file (he did act on the bit about taking the link to his Wikipedia persona out of his signature) and trying small stuff before making ill-advised edits at Wikipedia and Uncyclopedia. He even showed enthusiasm for saving Gabon from VFD, and promised to look at UNQUOTE--two minutes before going to Moscow with some of the same quotecruft. Spıke ¬ 01:36 15-Nov-13

I probably would've banned him for just long enough to look at UNQUOTE - ie about 20 minutes. But what's done is done. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 01:58, November 15, 2013 (UTC)

It might have taken him only those two minutes. But the point was not for him to read it; the point was that he promised and didn't, or didn't heed it. One day has a little sting. Spıke ¬ 02:17 15-Nov-13

Procrastination has its price. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 02:27, November 15, 2013 (UTC)
This may be one of the cases where leaving him alone would have been better. He signed up on the site, did a couple edits, and within a short time he was being given assignments, advice, criticism, etc., and now banned??? If that had happened to me I might have left the place on the first day. Have you looked at his Wikipedia page, he's more here than there, and has or had great potential. Banning a potentially good user on their first day may be overkill, let's hope he's the type who takes it as a learning curve and sticks around.. Aleister 15-11

Leda Bort and Ayumu Nishizawa are mostly left alone to their individual experimentation. (I did try to introduce them to one another.) BetterSkatez2012 is editing manically with horrible capitalization and composition but generally happy to reside in userspace. It may be that one invites more pressure by naming himself Epicgenius; but the quotecruft was just the latest of a series of eager agreements to correct things that he simply walked away from and continued apace. Spıke ¬ 15:05 15-Nov-13

Maybe, but he seemed interested and had just gotten here, so the learning curve may be in his future if he decides to stick it out. He may or may not have had problems at wikpedia, I haven't checked his edit history there. Aleister 15-11

Milwaukee Bucks

Hey, this is the guy who originally created the Milwaukee Bucks article as a redirect. Since you put it on ICU, I thought I'd let you know that I did some work on the article to move it past the state it was in. At the very least, it no longer seems like it was written by a 7th grade Bulls fan. It's not a 100% rewrite, but it is the first crack at an article I've ever made. Let me know if I made it less suckish. Spacehopper (talk) 08:16, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

It is sufficiently less suckish to have {{ICU}} removed, although it would be nice if it were developed further to be less dependent on the triple memes of shit, fuck, and Nobody Cares. The other contributor complied with my request to substitute a shoop that didn't look like vandalism of the original logo; Simsie's ICU complaint of listiness is completely resolved, and there are actually some funny new lines. I've also posted to each contributor separately. Spacehopper, the ideal is to make the article exactly resemble something a reader would find on Wikipedia — until the reader digs in and starts to think about what he just read. Happy editing!

Ikea monkey man

Regarding that stub in your userspace we were working on last night: Anon has edited File:MonkeyMan.png with the vague claim that it is cyberbullying; Shunter2000 has cleaned out his locker; I banned Anon for trolling; but it may be that the initial page was designed to make fun of a local bum who peers into Ikea stores, and if we keep your stub, it ought to be deliberately generic and wide of the truth.

User Ladoochampion reverted you and continued on, and I will not Patrol it but leave it to you to review the changes. Spıke ¬ 14:42 1-Dec-13


By the time user Ladoochampion returns from my ban of him (even after I reduced it to two days), the increased protection you gave this page will not have any effect on him! Spıke ¬ 21:49 2-Dec-13

You are right, but at least it should deter him from committing ban evasion and/or sockpuppetry to edit the article. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:55, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

King Biscuit

Separately, I got the notion to mistake the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show for a bit of the British royalty, mostly consisting of a creative misreading of the Wikipedia article. I asked Romartus for added color, but he had never heard of the show. Perhaps you were a fan of it and can take it in additional directions. Spıke ¬ 22:07 2-Dec-13

I cannot say that I have ever heard of this radio show either. Most of my radio listening is to music, mostly of the pop and rock variety, rather than to radio talk shows and the like. This sounds like children's programming to me, but I would have to do some investigating. I don't think any of our radio stations here in Western Washington state currently play this radio show, and I have no idea if they even have in the past. My car stereo has been missing for the last 7 years or so, so I don't listen to much radio anymore; one year the stereo was stolen both at work, then at home, and both times the car window was more expensive to replace than the stereo, so to avoid replacing the window again, I simply decided not to replace the stereo. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 22:16, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

No one "currently" plays this radio show, as the dates in this article are authentic. It is a vintage piece of Sunday programming that played pieces of pre-recorded concerts with a disc jockey in-between. The only really amusing thing is the name. Spıke ¬ 22:21 2-Dec-13

Final Fantasy I

Hello. The redundant description for "HARM" was meant to be another kind of joke, based on pleonasms rather than acronyms, with the intent of making the reader think of how naming a spell that's meant to harm "Harm" is redundant in the first place. Kinda like if they had named a spell "SPEL"-- That would have been silly. I meant it to be satyrical.

The list is already full of acronym jokes. I thought it could use some variety is all. I beg you to mind that humor is subjective, but that if we use the same kind of jokes over and over again, then only the same kind of person laughs. Thank you. --DreadfulPunMaster (talk) 07:08, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

I can see why she reverted it: To a typically inept list of acronyms (and in the context of the growing disfavor of inept lists noted at How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid), you added an item that is not just in disharmony but — in being redundant and, of course, repeating it an extra time — seems inept. No one minds that a given article have several different types of humor, but there is an issue if it is attempted in a single list or paragraph; for example, if someone writes a paragraph meant to be pseudo-intellectual and Anon comes along and adds references to grues and paedophiles. So: Your humor is decent, it might better be inserted somewhere other than in the list, and there is a bigger problem with the original list — which, to make a point that the game has a lot of dumb spells, winds up telling the same joke over again. Spıke ¬ 11:43 3-Dec-13

Well, Simslikesims's revert came with the description "this is a humor wiki - it is not to be taken seriously)". It doesn't seem to me like she got the point and made a judgement on the quality of my joke, but rather, that she thought I was being literal for the sake of stating facts... but why I just barge in here and replace jokes with facts?

For one, I disagree that my item is inept. The redundancy of the description is the very core of the joke attempted: It's meant to exacerbate the redundancy of the spell name. I also disagree that it is in disharmony as the list does not consist strictly of acronyms, it consists of a lot of acronyms along with many other varied kinds of jokes, including some of which that play on the literal intepretation of the spell name like I did. (ie: PURE, RUB, WALL, EXIT and FAST). I meant to add to the variety of the styles that was already present. So I believe my change can only be seen negative from a subjective point of view, that is: Whether or not one gets a laugh from it. I certainly for one didn't get more laughs from yet another far fetched acronym, but I chuckled when I read the spell name and the joke came to me. With all this considered, I don't think whether one thinks it's funny enough to stay should be in question.

Sorry, I don't mean to make such a big deal over a single line. I wouldn't have usually, but in this case I'm pretty confused as to why my contribution was invalidated. I hope you understand. --DreadfulPunMaster (talk) 06:01, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

We hash stuff to death here all the time, and this is by far the least drama of recent issues. I didn't say you wrote ineptly but that this list item "seems inept" with its repetition, by way of explaining why it might have been reverted. The Change Summary does seem to be off the point and, looking at the diff, I see that she did not remove your new item on HARM at all: just removed the humor. With apologies to all, I will revert back to your version. Spıke ¬ 14:16 5-Dec-13

Thanks Spike. I really appreciate your understanding! --DreadfulPunMaster (talk) 18:26, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

I will admit I didn't get the joke you were trying to add here. Sorry about the misunderstanding. We do have new people and IP's come along and try to replace humor with facts from time to time, and I thought this was one of those instances. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 20:29, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Autism

Do you agree that Ayumu's new illustration (apart from coding and grammar issues) detracts just like a Motivational Poster? Do you know where she got it? Spıke ¬ 14:50 3-Dec-13

A search under autism symptoms chart brought up this result: http://www.curtis1.com/curtis/Printable%20Autism/symptoms_chart.htm

I thought that one (and its typeface) looked fishy. But that is a lot of visual material in which to hunt for one joke. I still think that it detracts. But Ayumu (like Epicgenius) is an enthusiastic new user despite no demonstrated ability to actually write funny stuff. I most recently scolded her for her recent infatuation with our junk Categories and don't want to make her go away. Just the illustration. Spıke ¬ 18:59 3-Dec-13
