edit Brand new talk page

Now raped. Spıke Ѧ 19:53 8-Mar-14

General answer: When you are redirected to another page, there is very small print in the upper-left corner advising you of that fact. Click on it, and you can go to, instead of through, the redirect. Once there, you can edit it to no longer be a redirect. Spıke Ѧ 19:55 8-Mar-14

Diolch. Keeping the old pic though--Sog1970 (talk) 20:01, March 8, 2014 (UTC)

edit Greetings

Good to see you on the voting pages! When are you going to write another splendid article? Surely you could go for 75.5 features? --ChiefjusticeGameBoy 09:13, April 23, 2014 (UTC)

edit Soggy!

Did you say you were working on a version of the Periodical Tables? I am reading the Periodic Tales by Hugh Aldersey-Williams. Did that inspire you or did you encourage the author to get his version out before yours?? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:07, June 14, 2014 (UTC)

I did. But I kind of ran out of steam. Still like to fiish it one day though. --Sog1970 (talk) 18:57, June 17, 2014 (UTC)
I know it is a typo but I like the idea of 'Fish' being in the Periodical Tables. Perhaps we could 'knock' this idea around more now that I know everything up to Oxtail Soup (as discovered by Lux Lavosier, the French inventor of scented soap.) --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:18, June 18, 2014 (UTC)
I thought this guy invented soap. Well, maybe not scented soap, but that would be a good addition. Sog, please come back and give us more, more, of your pages. Or at least one more. For now, we would be content with one more. Hope things are going well, and much to do. Aleister 13:25 19-6-14

edit Boko Harum

This not being a Latin genitive plural, I suggest you Move it to Boko Haram, which is how I usually see it spelled. Don't QVFD the old name, if people think it's the right way. Spıke Ѧ 17:57 19-Jun-14

I would but it's Boko Harum as in Procul Harum rather than Haram as in firbidden.--Sog1970 (talk) 18:01, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

You are saying "Harum" is part of the joke? Having a joke for a page title forces the reader to guess your joke in order to read your joke. Instead, make the page title what the reader is likely to type, then use {{Title}} to change the displayed title once the reader gets to the page. Spıke Ѧ 18:09 19-Jun-14

There is already a Boko Haram article. You want me to overwrite it?--Sog1970 (talk) 18:15, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Oh! sorry; I certainly don't want you to do that. However, the 2012 article is ranty and overtly anti-Muslim, while yours is playful, though the text gets dense in places and should be broken up with a bit more graphics. I'll open a VFD ballot proposing to replace the old one with yours. Spıke Ѧ 18:25 19-Jun-14

edit User:ScottPat/Second World War

Thanks for stopping by to write a bit on this one. We'll just keep it going bit by bit. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 11:59, July 18, 2014 (UTC)

edit Soggy crackers

Is it worth saving from the shredder? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:32, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

Well, it doesn't do much for me in its current form and I think if I edited it that would be a bit narcissistic. I've seen worse though. Surprisingly few references to the old boys boarding school game if soggy biscuit.

edit The Doctor is IN

I have nommed this to be featured. Come on Soggy, at least stay one ahead of Alesterical? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:44, September 10, 2014 (UTC)

Featured today. I have added it to your Hall of Shame tally. Congratulations and Salutations. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:06, September 30, 2014 (UTC)

edit Why?:Eat a full English Breakfast

Sometimes you can wait ages to have an article featured - and then two come in at once. Congratulations Soggy. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:45, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

ah, thank you. Must try to think about writing something new some time.--Sog1970 (talk) 10:49, October 4, 2014 (UTC)

edit The Who

Your Featured Article is now at the shorter address by consensus of VFD. I thank you for contributing your knowledge of its history. Please QVFD the copy in your userspace if you no longer need it. Spıke Ѧ 02:47 13-Nov-14

edit Invasive species

All right, the VFD vote is closed, get to work. In fact, the way VFD works is that you can improve an article while we are voting on it. If I should delete it from failing to see you were working on it, I would gladly undo the deletion or at worst move it to your userspace so you could continue. (Why the capital S in Species?) Spıke Ѧ 14:51 5-Jan-15

Please note the minor name change! Spıke Ѧ 02:09 6-Jan-15

Your rewrite of Invasive species is now noted on the main page. Likewise, you could work on Wind after, or even during, the vote. In any case, go back into VFD and fix the vote count! Spıke Ѧ 19:52 7-Jan-15

edit Little Adolf's School Report

Wiki yam states on the talk page that the date of the School Report is counter-factual. As one year number is no funnier than another, I suggest you follow his recommendation and change it to be realistic given Hitler's birthdate. Spıke Ѧ 04:21 25-Jan-15

Done. Although the idea of leaving a stranger fuming about an irrelevant detail in a four year old item appeals quite a bit.--Sog1970 (talk) 16:00, January 25, 2015 (UTC)

Thank you, and point well-taken, though the "appeal" is to amusing yourself at the reader's discomfort (no matter how valid), to which I have always preferred amusing the reader. Spıke Ѧ 16:34 25-Jan-15

edit Thanks for vandal reverts

I saw you didn't have roll back rights Sog. Amended! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:03, February 21, 2015 (UTC)

Good move! Sog, read more about this new power of yours toward the end of UN:HAX. You are still free to post-edit rather than use your new Rollback button, but if you do, please mark the little vandal's edits "Patrolled" using your new link so that I don't have to check them out as well. Spıke Ѧ 00:14 22-Feb-15
In all honesty, if either you or user:Romartus had been online I wouldn't have bothered. Which isn't to say I don't care, just that I'm not around much. I was just here editing Baby food to amuse myself.--Sog1970 (talk) 00:58, February 22, 2015 (UTC)
That's fine too. Spıke Ѧ 01:38 22-Feb-15

edit UnNews:Turkey invades Syria to "protect lives of dead guys"

I tightened up some of the wording and did House Style stuff, such as capitalizing the city name and throwing in some categories. Your parenthetical note in the second paragraph is a complete sentence, making the surrounding paragraph very hard to read; perhaps break this down? Also, on my first read, this came across as more judgemental than funny and it took a couple reads to see what you were getting at; maybe give this a fresh read too. Spıke Ѧ 00:39 23-Feb-15

Foolitzer Thanks for your contribution to the February 2015 renaissance of UnNews!
EStop • Funnybony • Jimlemon • Romartus • ScottPat • SecondChanceForMe • Sog1970 • SPIKE

Sorry if you were in earlier this month and I omitted you, but you have now contributed to the "renaissance" anyway, so there you are by the magic of editing a template! Spıke Ѧ 00:42 23-Feb-15

edit UnNews:UK sent into raptures by birth of baby girl

This is renamed. Your UnNews needed more than to have the period removed from the end; it needed something to distinguish it from Romartus's take on the reaction in the media to the birth. Cheers! Spıke Ѧ 19:32 2-May-15

Now, you can't just keep renaming it with impunity, because it is referenced on the UnNews Front Page and website main page (also, above). Now fixed. Spıke Ѧ 21:18 2-May-15

As you can see SPIKE, the Blighty Uncyclopedians have gone extra creative with the Royal Sprogette. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:35, May 2, 2015 (UTC)

We gave youse a Second Front Page on the election; what next, a Third Front Page on the Maternity Ward?! Spıke Ѧ 22:38 2-May-15

edit The Jackson 5

Written earlier this year!? I missed this hidden Soggy Classic. Trust you're doing well there. Got to get your featured article count up! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:50, November 8, 2015 (UTC)

thank you, kind sir. I keep thinking of articles I could write and how they could be done. And then not writing them. This was an exception.--Sog1970 (talk) 17:36, November 8, 2015 (UTC)
I forgot to ask. You know that photo of Glenda Jackson as Liz I is Miranda Richardson. Not sure if that was part of the joke or not. :)--LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:31, November 9, 2015 (UTC)
it's not exactly a joke but who doesn't prefer Miranda Richardsons queen Elizabeth? Plus, who actually wants to look at Glenda Jackson? --Sog1970 (talk) 07:24, November 10, 2015 (UTC)
Yes, I hadn't thought of that. Perhaps Miranda as Elizabeth I is a homage to Glenda as Elizabeth I. No need to change the pic. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:15, November 10, 2015 (UTC)

edit The Jackson 5

This article was sporked to the Fork by the banned user Epicwinner/ Abacab. I have already pointed this out to the bods there but nothing has happened. As you know, all writers are free to their move material from one site to another. How are you otherwise Soggy? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:25, February 13, 2016 (UTC)

That's fine. As am I. I just find it hard to find the time to write anything now. How bout you?--Sog1970 (talk) 19:29, February 13, 2016 (UTC)
Oh! Sorry Soggy!! I hadn't double back and checked if you had responded. Writing wise - well, bits and pieces and adding placeholder articles. I wrote one on Prince (musician) but you're welcome to add anything to that. Same problem, pushed for time and trying not to repeat jokes! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:05, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

edit Baba O'Riley

The webcaster at the ballpark last night was the only guy in the house who knew that this was the song's actual name. Baba lacked a biography on Uncyclopedia, but my new stub has no particular comedy strategy. Please expand it if you have a better one! Spıke Radiomicrophone16:17 11-Aug-16

I tried. Not sure it's any better but I'm rather out of practise--Sog1970 (talk) 10:47, August 16, 2016 (UTC)

You fleshed it out a bit with material of interest to its likely audience. It could still be a springboard to something greater. Return to it if something strikes you.

PS--Speaking of music, Billy Joel has just turned up on VFD. It is heavy on babble, but the author had a real comedy strategy (play off song titles) that you might be able to do better. Spıke Radiomicrophone11:46 16-Aug-16

edit Medieval Marginalia

This already looking like a Soggy Classic. I added a couple of links. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:59, August 17, 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. Been meaning to write something about M M for ages but never really felt very inspired. Eventually it came down to having need of a bit of distraction--Sog1970 (talk) 20:23, August 17, 2016 (UTC)
I think you will need a concluding paragraph for the article.I suggest something along the lines that we now know a lot of this was Old World Quackery as we have plenty examples of New Age Pants from David Icke and 'Doctor' Gillian McKeith. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:06, August 17, 2016 (UTC)
What do you think? --Sog1970 (talk) 21:46, August 17, 2016 (UTC)
Yes! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:02, August 17, 2016 (UTC)

edit Billy Joel

As mentioned before, this article is in pretty dire shape and in danger of being deleted. Since you're so good with music-related articles, could you possibly help with rewriting this one?--HolUp (talk) 22:49, August 17, 2016 (UTC)

I kind of tried. Trouble is, I don't know enough Billy Joel stuff to do much without research. I may try this week. He deserves an article, and a better one than this. --Sog1970 (talk) 23:27, August 17, 2016 (UTC)
