edit Pre-Rendered Welcome!


The Balloon welcomes you!

Hello, Splendiferous5, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thanks 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...Not that far, goddammit! ...Yeah. Anyway, here are a few good links for nooblets:
If you read anything at all, make it the above two links, particularly the second one. If you want to find out more about Uncyclopedia, or need more help with something, try these:
If you feel like asking someone for help, feel free to ask me on my talk page, in the help forums, or on the Uncyclopedia IRC channel. With the forums and the IRC, keep in mind that the first response of the community is almost always general silliness. We are after all, a silly wiki, run by numerous silly, silly people. When you edit discussion pages, though, make sure you sign your name, using four tildes (~~~~) or the "sign" button (Button sig), above the edit box. This'll automatically produce your name and the date, and lets everyone know who the hell you are. Signing will also help you avoid the {{tilde}} template.
When you write articles, make sure you start with enough on the page so that it's not deletion-quality. If you must create a stub that you plan to expand on in the near future, use a {{WIP}} or {{Construction}} tag to mark it as a work-in-progress. However, if you leave a tagged WIP unedited for a full week, it'll wind up huffed. If the idea of impending deletion doesn't appeal to you, you should like I do, and start pages in userspace, first. This means making a page like User:Splendiferous5/Article about stuff. In userspace just about anything goes(save for the obvious no-nos, like shock pics or other stupidity), and you can build and rework your page(s) at your leisure. Once it's done, just move into mainspace, maybe getting a pee review at some point to get constructive feedback on your article.
For new users seeking help, the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply put {{adoptme}} on your Userpage to join--but you might want to go and actively ask someone from here, or you may not be noticed.
Lastly, and most importantly, have fun with it! As a comedy wiki, that's kinda what Uncyc is for. Enjoy yourself, and remember to never take anything anyone here says too seriously. We have serious moments, but generally we stay pretty laid back. Also, I'm not a bot. Just 'cause you saw a similar message on a bunch of other users' pages doesn't mean I didn't have to copy and paste this one onto yours with my own meatsack of a finger. Anyways, welcome to the machine! - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:17, Jun 28

edit The Old Country

Hey Splendiferous. I didn't revert your additions, RAHB did. Don't take it personally that some people don't think certain things are funny, it's just how it works. Although it's good to contribute, "cutting your teeth" on something already featured is usually reverted, like, right away. Do you need any help with your articles? How is Uncyc for you so far other than this episode?   Le Cejak <1:37, 29 Jun 2008>

Oh, don't worry about caring that you got reverted. Everyone hates being reverted, and 95% of those people complain about it the first time it happens. Now get writing some articles or I'll ban you. Hahahaha I'm not an administrator!
hahaha, just kidding!

edit Kwestions

well, while I still have your ear, I was wandering about a couple of things.

Hey, I want my ear back. much time/articles/witty, self-refencial comments does it take to be considered a "member" (i.e. not noob)? estimates are acceptable.

You are both a member AND a noob! I'm still a noob, in fact. Seriously, I haven't graduated from TheLedBalloon's noob program yet! much time must one regularly invest in this site to excel here (again, estimates fine)?

Excel? It's summer, so how about you write an article a week? It doesn't have to be good, necessarily.

3.what's the policy on using the in-jokes?

Don't use them. Seriously. there any level of profanity/racism/blasphemy (article-wise, not directed a users) that will actually get me banned? not that I want to push the limits, just curious.

I have pushed the boundary of blasphemy in my articles. Have you read Traditional Values? And I've never been banned for being outrageous. I don't think people get banned for being outrageous, just uploading shock porn. Okay, the limit is uploading shock porn.

5.who's the head honcho, if there is one?

Nobody's in charge. Complete anarchy.

If you can't answer any of these questions, just put some colorful gibberish on my talkpage.

I hope I helped, Splendiferous! :D   Le Cejak <7:33, 03 Jul 2008>
