edit Lesotho

I saw you left a comment on my talk page but it was reverted by another user. Anyway I have come here instead. I also reverted you taking off the tag. The message was to categorise the page a bit better. Perhaps you were going to do that anyway. BTW, don't revert an edit you don't like. Always talk to that person first. Revert wars are not encouraged and can lead to a ban. I am also not sure if the Communist idea is that funny anyway but otherwise the page looks at least tidy and links to the right places. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:48, April 20, 2012 (UTC)

edit What an {{ICU}} means

When a page is tagged ICU it means that a user has come along and looked at the page, and thought "This is a good start, but it's not there yet." It is effectively the same as a {{construction}} but added on by someone who isn't the author. Xam put it on your page as it was under construction, but not quite finished. As a general rule ICU'd articles get deleted only of they are abandoned. So if you see that tag, feel free to move it to the bottom of the page, but don't panic about it being there. Worst case scenario is it will be deleted, but then - if you are intending to finish it - you can ask an admin to restore it into your user space as User:Steveyt0/the fantastic unfinished article.

You might want to work on articles in your userspace until you get them completed as well. It means if you run out of steam on an idea you can shelve it there until you get back to it (if ever) and don't have to worry about it's possible deletion.                               Puppy's talk page04:32 21 Apr

edit Solomon Islands

This is now capitalized as you requested. The old name will no longer work. Happy editing! Spıke Ѧ 13:00 28-Dec-13

And an uncommonly good article it is! My only comments:

  • Mind your run-on sentences.
  • Give us less about what scientists did or how certain your information is; instead, just say what you have to say. See also CoW#A simple style is most encyclopedic.
  • Put some of those photos on the left with |thumb|left|.
  • If your story is really that the name isn't Solomon, start the page with {{Title|Salmon Islands}}. I did this in the Republic of El Humidor.
  • Learn to click on Preview to see how your changes will look. Only Save to the encyclopedia at major stopping points. 25 edits in the activity log is a frenzy.
  • That calamari have taken over the islands is an authentic comedy theme. I am not sure that all the anecdotes about the doings of the calamari are there for a reason. Perhaps I don't know enough about the Islands; perhaps your article could include hints. Spıke Ѧ 13:12 28-Dec-13

edit Turd hot dog

I have banned you for one day for violating the terms stated (in bold orange) on Special:Upload. Admins have been wrestling with our webhost over the presence of obscene humor on the site having nothing to do with comedy, and I believe we deleted this very same image recently. And the image has nothing to do with comedy, as your humor strategy in South Sudan is to simply assert that everything there is shitty, and everyone there is really black — two profoundly uncreative takes. I would delete the whole article but it's clear that you either know or researched the country's recent history. When you return, try to make this article a little more about something. Spıke Ѧ 12:59 30-Dec-13

PS--I repeat from the previous section:

  • Learn to click on Preview to see how your changes will look. Only Save to the encyclopedia at major stopping points.

Your work overnight was logged as 30 separate edits. This makes life difficult for those of us patrolling for vandalism. Spıke Ѧ 13:00 30-Dec-13

edit Andorra

Not sure why you think Andorra is full of midgets! I once went there on a day trip - everyone was normal size to me. Frodo Baggins a.k.a. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:18, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

Added a template and a line about Munchkins. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 19:40, July 27, 2014 (UTC)

edit Bongo Bongo Land

Writing pages like this means that the reader has to guess your punch line in order to read your joke! On Uncyclopedia, it is better to pick subjects that exist and write funny stuff about them, as you did with Lesotho. You've already seen how to use {{Title}} to change what the article calls itself, once the reader arrives.

Separately, I switched on your autopatrolled flag so that our overnight chimpanzees will not be flagged to check each of your edits for vandalism. You won't notice anything different. Spıke Ѧ 15:04 28-Jul-14

Hi Spike, I appreciate the advice but as I think as your an American your probably not aware that I did not make up the phrase "Bongo Bongo Land", in Britain it is a term used to describe any country in the third world, usually in a racist context, as this is the basis for my article. I appreciate that this may not be clear to people who are not British however, maybe I should put that "overly British" thing at the top of the article. WP:Bongo Bongo Land --Steveyt0 (talk) 15:18, July 28, 2014 (UTC)
I was aware of it as I am from the UK. Like it that you are filling out the countries that have been overlooked so far. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:35, July 29, 2014 (UTC)

If there is some basis for a reader looking there, then I stand corrected. But then, please don't use the Overly British template to guide the reader, as any reader who arrives there will be prepared for what he finds. Carry on! Spıke Ѧ 15:23 28-Jul-14

But I reverted your addition of it to {{World Countries}}, as it breaks the superficial seriousness that other articles rely on. There is a separate template of fantasy and nonsense nations that you should use instead, but I don't remember its name. 17:36 Glad you found it! Spıke Ѧ 22:45 28-Jul-14

I noticed the article Hmor isn't on the right template either. So if there is one, we need to find it or create a new one for imaginary countries/states etc. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:36, July 29, 2014 (UTC)
You got it. For future reference, the template is {{Weird countries}}. Spıke Ѧ 14:12 29-Jul-14

edit Poo water

I thought it would be necessary to userspace or delete this one on general principles of decency or unnotability, but damn! that's well done: toilet humor done encyclopedically. It is unlikely that many people will look for an article on Poo water, so I made Sewage point to it. (The main content doesn't belong at Sewage, because it's not about sewage.) Keep going!

edit Posting to talk pages

You are welcome at any time to disavow your remarks and strike them out. As ConCass2 replies at VFD, you are not welcome to unsay them, and especially to delete my reply to you. This is a general rule of posting to talk pages that was set out in the Welcome message above. well, that would have been set out if it were I who welcomed you. Spıke Ѧ 20:42 7-Aug-14

Sorry about that, my bad --Steveyt0 (talk) 02:25, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

edit ISIS/Islamic State

We seem to have an article gap on this one but I admit, trying to find something funny about them could be a challenge! --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:36, August 12, 2014 (UTC)

edit VFD comment

I removed your comment on a VFD ballot (regarding casting a vote in the wrong place). You probably fixed your own mistake before anyone saw it, and the explanation is just confusing. If you had left the vote in the wrong place for a day or more and then moved it, I think a clarification would be good. Spıke Ѧ 11:08 29-Aug-14
