Hi. Please feel free to not leave any comments, questions, suggestions, etc. Tyvm. Smuggler 05:28, 21 May 2007 (UTC)

edit Hello!

Hello, my name is Cap'n Ben. I've been reading and enjoying some of your stuff. I like how you've taken one theme across several articles; this is an idea we don't see enough of...anyway, that's my advice to you. Good luck and happy editing! --Cap'n Sir Ben GUN WotM VFH VFP 11:57, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Thanks

"Ay, Thanks fer yer praise of me article on Housing Crunch". I'm glad you liked it. I was unsure of it. I've been away for awhile, and I hope to get back into the UnNews swing of things again.--WesMan20 BlackMan Icons-flag-us (talk) 14:42, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

edit Hey thanks!

I appreciate the little reward you gave me. If you don't mind though, I think I'll move it to my talkpage, since you're technically not supposed to edit my page but no big deal. You rule for telling me that I rule! It's Mrthejazz... a case not yet solved. 04:14, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

edit UnNews:Squirrel deported, owner despondent

1) No excess capital letters in UnNews headlines. 2) much shorter: "Squirrel deported, owner horrified" 3) Also, as you have tagged this UnNews with {{Original}} (and it seems to be original, or at least the {{Source}} you gave is a dead link), you can ditch the Source entirely. 4) The pix are bigger than in most.

Tyvm for the feedback Spike. I'll incorporate the changes.

edit UnNews:Lost Steinbeck Novel Discovered

You already filed this UnNews (which does not look like news, and which has no relation to news) on 7 June. Filing it again under a slightly different headline (again: No excess capitals in headlines!) serves no purpose that I can detect except to bump it to the top of the list, at the expense of other Uncyclopedians who are writing UnNews articles that are about something.

edit HMC

Your topic for the competition is I would like to see a How To Lose a Chess Game

So go create an article on your user space. Contact me (or an admin if I don't respond soon) for any questions. You have two days. Remember:

CREATIVITY, ORIGINALITY and HELARITY. You will be judged on all three of these out of 10 for a score of 30.


--ShabiDOO 17:58, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

You did it! This year is a record for semi-completed and finished articles. I've been blown away by the humour and creativity of the articles I've so far read! Watch as the scores slowly trick in over the next week here. Hope you enjoyed it gurgler-master. --ShabiDOO 05:17, June 20, 2014 (UTC)

edit Learn2Preview

It looks as though you have not gotten this tip before: Competition or no, 103 edits to your user page makes it unnecessarily difficult for me to see what happened on the wiki while I was out and whether there is anything I should undo. Please press Preview to see how your edits will look, then continue editing and press Save only when at a good stopping point. This will not affect what you elect to write but only how many official changes to the encyclopedia it appears as. You have autopatrolled and so your own edits are not the issue, but merely simplifying the listing so that actual vandalism stands out. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 03:16 16-Jun-14

edit Fulano

Here is a nub of a new idea; can you flesh it out? Spıke Ѧ 14:26 30-Jun-14

The entry changes. First it is a family name, then under 'Early Years', it is the name of one person, a name. The subject differs in the first paragraph, compaired to the 2nd, 3rd., & 4th headings. There are 4 characters named yet none of them are attached to the traits given in the middle 3 or 4 paragraphs. We need to either create another person w/the last name of 'Fulano' (Fredericko, Fenry, etc.) or make the middle 3 paragraphs about one of the existing characters. What do you wish to do? Smuggler 02:09, July 2, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the analysis. The article name needs to be "Fulano" because Fulano is an actual expression — or at least needs not to be the name of someone I just made up, under my principle that you don't force the reader to guess the punch line to call up the joke. I don't mind that the focus seems to change, as in his biography I want to refer to him as simply Fulano, because I want to write, "blamed on Fulano" and so on; that is, "blamed on some guy" rather than blamed on my character himself.

edit HowTo:Lose a chess game

Hi Smuggler! Are you going anywhere with your article? I think it's well written and should be in the main encyclopedia! Anton (talk) 17:02, August 18, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnNews cross-references

Your user page is where you can maintain a list of your works. Having each of your UnNews articles cite all your other UnNews articles is vanity. Please undo these edits now. Spıke Radiomicrophone02:27 4-Aug-15

edit This is why I no longer make articles for UnNews

I left making articles for UnNews because of the Admins. I came back to make an article-no "Hey, thanks, good work! By the way...". Nope. This is why I no longer make any new articles for UnNews. And why I recommend to other to simply not waste their time. Smuggler.

edit Copy of letter to Wikia Owners/COO/CEO

Aug 4, 2015. Dear Wikia Owners.


I no longer generate content for Wikia sites. Dealing with the Nazi Admins is a nightmare. Forget it. Until you guys have a meet and greet with the Admins and teach them how to be nice to ppl, count me out. Writing content for Wikia is like teaching a horse to dance-it pisses off the horse and it's disappointing to the cowboy.

Count. me. done. Done with Uncylcopedia, done with UnNews, done with RuneWiki.

Adam Bein Smuggler.

edit Reply

You do not have a problem with "the Nazi Admins." You have a problem only with me. UnNews is a unique namespace in that contributors' work is immediately broadcast to every reader. I strive for a unified style on these contributions for the sake of maintaining the cover joke of making UnNews look like a trusted news service. This joke feeds individual contributions, by making it more of a shock when the reader realizes they are not to be trusted.

My job here is editor, not Camp Counselor. I was unaware you needed a pat on the back to avoid a rage-quit. Quitting Uncyclopedia has no purpose except to claim that my edits of your articles have a higher cost. Quitting RuneWiki is absurd, as no Uncyclopedia Admin is a RuneWiki admin. If you have the same problem there, then the only common factor is you.

Claiming to write to Wikia owners and executives is outrageously inappropriate, as well as further giving the impression that you may think it's all about you. No executive would spend the time mollifying one wiki editor, and not even the Wikia personnel who know something about this wiki will want to interfere with its article style, nor care which users do not want to live within it.

edit 2016 Springtime contest

Thank you for signing up! For a chance to win a photo of a great prize, write a funny article on Traffic, before the end of 18 April! Spıke Radiomicrophone02:50 1-Apr-16

Hi Smuggler, it would be a pity if you pulled out of our little comp. If you are not happy dealing with any particular admin, there are more of us. I am happy to work with you on the site if you like, and clearly as you are a feature writer that has been around a while I would look forward to your article.  EStop Easy button 06:27, April 2, 2016 (UTC)

Tough crap. I'm not dealing with Spike. I left for 2 yrs, came back, dealt with him. I left for a year, came back-bammo, Spike. Too bad too. Whatever.
