Hello, Special Cases, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for your contributions. I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there... no, a little more to your left... yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

If you read anything at all, make it the above three links. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia or need more help with something, try these:

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig) above the edit box. This will automatically produce your name and the date.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Special Cases/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If the current colonization doesn't suit your fancy, then browse our rewrite and idea categories. We have lots of articles just sitting around for someone to improve, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. Again, welcome! --Sycamore (Talk) 12:56, October 29, 2010 (UTC)


Hi there Special Cases, welcome to Uncyclopedia, I've noticed a few of your recent edits and I have some advice for you. First of all ease off trying to use things like QVFD, ban patrol and VFD until you have a grasp of how things work around here. If you jump in at the deep end you are going to cause a great deal of aggro for the people who maintain those pages and are active on them. My advice is that before you make any more edits to any of the pages above you read the associated instructions very very carefully, you may also wish to consider the adopt-a-noob programme which is aimed at new contributors to the site to prevent them getting into all the difficulties you are getting yourself into. We welcome your contribution to the wiki, but we need you to understand what is going on before you start contributing in this way. I hope this is understood. Welcome again. --ChiefjusticeXBox 19:13, November 1, 2010 (UTC)

I think still I have a small grasp though. I have been CSDing articles on, always was on AIV and regularly took part in AfD's on Wikipedia. Which is all the same thing. Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 19:35, November 1, 2010 (UTC)

I see you have a grasp of how wikis work, but I have also noticed you don't have much of a grasp of the policies on this one, if you think you have mastered them in 3 days then you must tell me how as I have been here for close to 3 years and still don't have a full grasp of them all. We are very different from wikipedia especially with regard to our policies, templates and procedures. Ignorance is not an excuse for going against policy, so my advice is bite the bullet and do some reading to find out how we do things. Finally, you need to fix your sig, I have asked you to do it twice now, instructions for doing so can be found here and here. --ChiefjusticeXBox 19:42, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
NO. I do it, the Wikipedia way.I just stole it from here. The way you do it is confusing. Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 19:50, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
Look, this matter isn't up for discussion, when you edit uncyclopedia you will abide by our rules regarding funny and editing generally, if you refuse to abide by the rules then you will not edit, it is as simple as that. Make up your mind. Fix your sig and abide by our policies or leave. --ChiefjusticeXBox 19:55, November 1, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, I may be out of line here. But, Special Cases, I'll adopt you. If you want. --Tophat headless 13:51, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
In fact, what about ChiefJustice adopt me? Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 15:56, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
I'm happy to adopt you if that's what you want, but you will have to be willing to listen and learn if that is the case, I don't want to have to fight a battle with you over every second thing. I'm thrilled that you have the grasp of what a wiki is and are enthusiastic about contributing to this one, you should by all means defend what you want to do, but you need to compromise at times as well. Let me know if you want to be adopted, there is no need to mention it on my talk page, I will know, I'm magic. --ChiefjusticeXBox 17:49, November 2, 2010 (UTC)
Actually Chief, I'm magic. --Tophat headless 15:41, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Break it up NOW you two. It's my choice and at the moment the Chief is in the lead. Sorry Magic man :). Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 15:46, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Oh no! I wasn't fighting over you. I was just giving Chief the facts. --Tophat headless 15:49, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Too late. I have already posted on his talk page. Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 15:51, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
But didn't he say not to do that? --Tophat headless 16:17, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
I meant don't post to say you have replied. --ChiefjusticeXBox 16:19, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Oh.... I knew that.... *cough* *cough* *smiles uncertainty, then dashes off*. --Tophat headless 16:28, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
I have declared war against Wikipedia and I was blocked. To make sure this is official, Chief, post on this admins talk page that this is official and say that you are a admin on here. Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 16:37, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
This isn't a way for you to have a fight with a wikipedia admin, what they do is their business and they have a policy there for being unbanned. You are here to do things for uncyc, not enlist us as part of a "war" against them. He also seems to be a fairly reasonable bloke from what I can see. --ChiefjusticeXBox 16:46, November 3, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, alright. Can we get on with the adoption now or what? Special Cases LOOK, A TALK PAGE!!!! 16:52, November 3, 2010 (UTC)

I don't know if you are aware...

But sometimes it works a little better to use the show preview button instead of making a lot of small edits, especially to things like your userpage or folks' talkpages.

I say this because your constant revisioning was getting a mite annoying during my obsessive-compulsive hovering over recent changes this morning.

Well, okay, that's not the real reason; while that's why I noticed, it's just good practice in general. Considerate to those with the page in question on their watchlists, more efficient, better in terms of flounder consumption, that kind of thing. And don't forget, for minor edits, there's this nice little checkbox. It's labelled 'minor edit'.

Anyhoo, I'm not trying to be annoying... this time. Just hope it helps. Cheers. ~ Pointy *shifty eyes* (talk) (stalk) -- 20101104 - 02:15 (UTC)

i stalker u


also testing my signature TheRasIsBack! 03:14, November 4, 2010 (UTC).

Very good! Right, get that signature the right way up boy! What you have to do is create User:TheRasIsBack/sig, then copy and paste the current version onto that page. Contact my master if you want more info. Good luck for now. Oh, and stay away from UN:VFD, QuickVFD and ban patrol. I had total defeat try to huff a page called 12 year olds invading the Internet.Icons-flag-gb Special Cases talk /sign 16:16, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

Other user pages?

Are not yours, so refreain from edit them please. Thanks. ~Jewriken.GIF 21:38, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

The Chiefs page? I'm very sure Chief won't mind. He (that you have incompetently not noticed) is my adopter. Icons-flag-gb Special Cases talk /sign 15:52, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

No, I meant TheRasIsBack's user page, not talk page. One more thing, you got a polite request and you managed to answer to that simple request with somewhat of a shitty attitude. I strongly recommend that if you intend to stay here and become a productive member of this site you lose the attitude swiftly. ~Jewriken.GIF 16:56, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
You are being incomptent again. I said you may mean the Chief's user page and you come up saying TheRasIsBack's talk page. I don't think he would possibly care either, seeming the (now former) notice on there. Also you say I am using a rather shitty attitude. To me a shitty attitude would be saying something like:OH YOU DUMB IDIOT HAHAHAHA YOU DIDNT NOTICE THE POSTINGS ABOVE,STUPID. Would I ever use that language? Please, I am stating a fact here; that you are being a rather control freak and you have no policies in front of you that states I cannot edit anyone elses user page. Icons-flag-gb Special Cases talk /sign 17:21, November 5, 2010 (UTC)
When you'll return from your block you'd want to reconsider this reponse again. ~Jewriken.GIF 17:32, November 5, 2010 (UTC)

Your article

I was just having a quick read through your article, and it isn't too bad at all. However it isn't really going anywhere and the joke is over pretty quickly; I'd suggest you try attempting to communicate some point to the reader rather than simply writing nonsense and occasionally throwing in a relevant word or link. What I mean by this is that instead of starting with "I was can't go to endorse documents If I had the wings of a sparrow if I had P R's of the crime of violence" you could start with something like "Always wondered lie voice recognition loft stare is useless? Well worry no linger as I will be your slide to finding out why, in fact I'm so fart I have decided to write this particle using a piece of this waft bear." Notice the difference? There is an obvious structure to the second one which is almost immediately apparent. You could work on developing this idea through the article and could try using a piece of voice recognition software to come up with good replacements for words, in my example I just used words that are minor homophones of the initial phrase, but if you use a piece of software then it would make your life easier. You could even record an audio of the article either with you saying what the article is meant to say, or you could rewrite the article so it is like any other and then record a different version in an audio. There is a lot you can do with this concept so I'd really recommend that you keep working at it. --ChiefjusticeXBox 17:03, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, i'll do that, but I would like to say that I did use Windows voice recognition software. Icons-flag-gb Special Cases talk /sign 17:06, November 8, 2010 (UTC)

UnSignpost - The UnSignpost Rides Again!

Reading time

SC, I see that you're intent on not fixing your sig following this last ban of yours. So let's put it in simple terms - you've now already managed to get on three separate admins' bad side. Non of us have a particular need to come back and ask you time after time after time but you keep forcing our hand. But since we're all nice people I'll do it one last time. FIX. YOUR. SIG. Read UN:SIG and act accordingly. Read BGBU and HTBFANJS. Don't create on liners, put some effort into your articles. Don't blank anything, for whatever reason. I hope that this is the last time an admin we'll need to ask you to do something. If you don't know how to do it, you can ask and someone will help you. --~Jewriken.GIF 20:00, November 11, 2010 (UTC)

Ban Patrol

SC, I think you've missed what is BP all about. Posting any IP that places a line that is not as funny as the rest of the article or changing the odd comma does not make him a vandal. Please stop flooding BP. Also, if you think it's a vandal (and I mean that you're REALLY sure it's a vandal) undo the damage and then report it to BP. Don't leave it as is.

As a more general point, I'm not sure what you intend to contribute to Uncyclopedia. If you're here for the maintnenace work, that's fine, but you need to learn how this place works before you import various scripts from Wikipedia (which the majority wouldn't work here anyway) and learn how we work this place. We are NOT wikipedia and the etiquette and way of working here is fundementally different. Take the time to read BGBU which I suspect you didn't yet. ~Jewriken.GIF 16:35, November 14, 2010 (UTC)
