ICarly

ICarly appears to be being re-created, fairly close to how it was when it was before, although it looks a little more restrained, at the moment.--Mnbvcxz (Annoy) 15:43, 27 December 2008 (UTC)

My understanding was that re-created material was to be QVFD, especialy if its an IP...?:) — Sir Sycamore (talk) 15:51, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
I'll probably get complaints, but I've hopfully got it a good stage where it can be completed, or huffed in 30 days:) — Sir Sycamore (talk) 16:11, 27 December 2008 (UTC)
I've been trying to fix the article some, without annoying the ip authors or getting into a revert war. Unfortunately, I don't know if I'm helping, or just making it worse. The main thing I doing is trying to turn the retarded "newt in utero" idea into a euphemism for pregnancy. Although the euphemism is worse than its subject, I think it might have some potential to be funny(ish), if I can purge the "tail sticking out of Carly's privy regions is a you-know-what" from the article. Also, I'm partially regretting some of the images that I uploaded; I'm afraid that they might draw the "wrong kind of" ips to that article, and only make the problem worse. --Mnbvcxz 03:00, 4 January 2009 (UTC)
It is a bit of a shame that the ips aren't helping here. I would suggest either going on the IRC, and asking for it to be semi-protected - meaning only regitered users will be able to edit it. Or moving it into your userspace like User:Mnbvcxz/iCarly and putting the old on on QVFD. I think a finished version might sort out the IPs. I don't like the idea of trying to get bans for something like this as I don't think these IP edits are in bad faith. Hope this helps:) — Sir Sycamore (talk) 10:49, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Welcome note

I guess you're watching the new user lists - neat to get a welcome note so quick! :) I'm not new to wiki editing (you'll find me under the same username on en.wikipedia and *heaps* of other places), but it's really helpful to have the Uncyclopedia policies all laid out there.

Article

PsychotypeD 16:01, 10 January 2009 (UTC)Hey Sycamore, I need some help. I've got this really annoying IP user who keeps trying to completely re-alter my Spongebob V.S. Zim article. I'm usually an open guy, but I don't like what he's doing to it. This has gone on for three days and no matter how much I do away with his stuff, he just keeps coming (and messing things up). Do you know any way I can block him or something like that?

IPs can be problem from time to time (also very helpful sometimes). Luckly for you, you appear to have just the one that is causing trouble here: 24.147.190.89. Now you could post a message on the IP talkpage explaining things first. Also when you revert you can leave a message in the summary on why those edits were crappy. This is my advice on what to do first of all - I'll be keeping an eye on things now that you've brought it up - If you can deal with it this way, and it does not work, then we'll have a look at trying something else. Does that sound OK?:) — Sir Sycamore (talk) 16:19, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

PsychotypeD 18:52, 10 January 2009 (UTC) Okay thanks. The guy is welcome to edit the page by adding new characters or new events, but when it comes to completely altering the entire article... well that's pretty serious. I have kept some stuff (such as General Godzilla) that he wrote, but I don't like how he is completely altering things like Spongebob beating Zim. If he wants there to be an article like this on the site, fine he can make it. But I don't want him taking apart my article and building it his way to do it.

By the way when you mean the IP address talkpage, do you mean clicking on the link there and brining it up on the discussion part (I've never had to do this before)?

Yeah, just click on the IP discussion page and leave a message. Often that will be enough, he does not look to be adding anything in bad faith, so its fair to assume he might be reasonable:) — Sir Sycamore (talk) 12:46, 11 January 2009 (UTC)

A note for the Uncyclonazi

The facts:. I don't like you and I know you don't like me. However, I feel the need to clarify my insult so that it's crystal clear.

You have quite the collection of treatises about how everything sucks on this site in recent years, including numerous references to the quality of writing now being poor by comparison with the past (mythical idealized past). Excuse me sir, but you just voted Symbol for vote For on an article that actually used "Dave" to rhyme with slave....there's no context or need for "Dave" and I can find numerous grade school children who are better at rhyming than that. Hey! Let's put it in the front page!!! Sir, you have no standards beyond political ones and your flowery prose reeks of pompous ass.--DRStrangesig5 Sherman Fingertalk  09:39, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Calm down Doc - I voted for that too, and I did so because it was a funny article. The "Dave" rhyme amused me, partly because it's so incongruous, and reminds me of quite a lot of songs which are great for the most part, but have a dodgy rhyme or two in them. It's a funny article. Perhaps you should relax a bit, and remember this isn't all serious business. Syc's a good guy. You're a good writer, but seem very quick to get on your high horse about perceived slights. Chill, man! ;-) --UU - natter UU Manhole 09:59, Jan 22
I did not know that I did not like you - I'll be sure to update the vengeance list! Just to qualify I vote on the basis of what I find to be well written and funny - I don't really care what people choose to see it as; however the site being filled with pretty wacky types like myself and often what I vote for will reflect what a lot of other people find funny – there’s no covert bad faith issue here. My articles (I assume you are talking about Uncyclopedia) about the site are often laced with quite a bit of self parody as well - the truth is that a lot of the negative qualities I have parodied reflect something I think we have all contributed to, not a bitching session or any slights against users. I hope that nothing I have ever done on here has been to undermine people individually, however some actions that are unhelpful I will flag up without hesitation, as I would expect others to do of myself - this is all part of a collaborative project, not a one man quest. I would also make a lousy Nazi since I hang around with Jews:)--Sycamore (Talk) 10:25, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Whoring Myself Out

I created pretty much everything i'm gonna contribute way earlier and want to eventually get out of college and turn some of it either into a cartoon or comic book or both. Can I put something at the end of say my Rangers article like "Anyone who would want to draw an actual comic book about these characters should contact....[my set aside yahoo account that can get hacked and die for all I care cause i only use it to store porn anyway]. I don't wanna break any uncyc rules buuuut i also don't wanna start putting up my ideas if i can't turn them into real life gold later. The jew in me needs to whore out but the writer in me is dying to give the world a taste of my creations. --Shingraham 16:28, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

My understanding is that would not be good option - any stuff you submit is not owned by yourself anymore and the characters you have created can be used by anyone - so getting publishing etc could be borderline impossible is someone could distrbute your work for free. You're sort of suggesting advsertising for future sequals and contributions outside of the site which kind of goes against the idea. Hope this helps:)--Sycamore (Talk) 19:03, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

K so then i'm gonna keep my other characters to myself, thanks. But just so i'm 100% clear from this point on if i myself wanted to take anything that I put on here and try and distribute it either for free or for profit that's just me being a money whore and doesn't really affect the site, right. Because i'm totally building towards being a money whore.

Its very prefereble that you don't whore for reasons (money, stuff) outside of the site as we're non profit; however being a money whore in life is the only way to go:)--Sycamore (Talk) 19:44, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Yeah - it could do with some work, I think it's an idea that they are not too intrusive, unless its something more major (like ICU).

I think this template is trying to function as a canned joke. It does serve a marginally useful warning purpose (i.e. it tells the reader to go any further.) Ideally, templates should warn without uglifiying and cluttering a page too much. I personally think the template should look like this:

But, I'm afraid that big of change will not go over well with certain people. Some humor is such templates is ok at times, but warning templates and sectional templates exist to convey information, not to (try to) be funny in themselves.--Mnb'z 17:45, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Artemis Fowl

I simply reverted the Opal/Artemis section to its previous format because it was funnier that way. I'm new on Uncyc but it seems that many articles, particularly the Artemis Fowl article seem to be being rigidly controlled by certain users, particularly yourself (no personal attack intended). The irony being that when users add silly random things to articles (such as that nonsense about baby eating in the aforementioned AF article) that aren't nearly as funny as the stuff you remove, you permit it. There's a similar problem taking place on Wikipedia actually so I don't know if there's some sort of secret organisation of rigid, totalitarian comformists trying to take over Wikia but I assure you, as long as I'm on the scene it won't be happening. --FunnyMan 13:49, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I don't think I'm the one who needs help with his contributions Sycamore. I think you are. The thing is, your contributions don't seem to be funny, whereas ... well, mine are. Uncyclopedia seems to have a funny idea of what's funny and what isn't, ranging from pseudo-intellectualism to just plain silliness. --FunnyMan 18:09, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
Hm. How about I jump in here? We get a lot of people like you who think you're funnier than we are. The truth is, Uncyclopedia is a very particular brand of funny. We take time in writing our articles, and we're pretty damn proud of the hard work we do around here. Sycamore is one of our top writers. You are nobody. Sycamore is vigilant about making sure that all articles, including those that are not as funny, stay, for the most part, free from vandalism. No one user has time to fix every article. That's why we rely on each other to fix unfunny articles and make this a better place. This is a wiki. It's a work in progress that will never be complete. That's why we encourage users to Be italic when it comes to fixing what they think is unfunny. If your edits are reverted by a more experienced user, tough. You have much to learn.
But I don't care about how funny you think you are. I care about my buddy here, who happens to be our current Author of the Month. See, he knows what he's doing. He's funny. He's clever. His articles are satirical and have a general point to make, as is our wish for all articles. Are all articles like Sycamore's articles? Unfortunately, no. Is every article that Sycamore edits going to be funny? No, Sycamore edits many articles, and not always to make them funnier. Sometimes he just tries to prevent further damage from being done. But what I don't appreciate is a little noob like yourself who thinks he's so much better than us showing up and telling my buddy he's not funny when he clearly is. Sycamore happens to be one of the most valuable users on this site, you are nobody. Please be productive instead of talking shit about my buddy or get the fuck out.

My time is always wasted. With regards to ED, I don't really have a take, although some feel there is a rivalry between the two sites which I think prompts the slating from both communities. The reality however is that there is little in common with both sites, although sometimes content can be comparible the aims are very different and overall the content of both communities is pretty far apart:)--Sycamore (Talk) 10:21, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, not sure if you saw RadX made Image:Satan-business-is-good.png for you - I've archived it as it's been there for a while now, but just thought I'd mention it. --UU - natter UU Manhole 12:35, Feb 18

Meh

Dont you even take a look at a sites history when you add categories? Arent you curious as yo why there are none =P Anyway, as you can see on the history I was workin on reverting the IPs empty work (his paragrafs were soo boring) to the old article. Even though that one aint great either it has categories and an image. Just lettin you know so you dont get all surprised if ya ever run into that article again =) Good to know we're both roaming "category-less" articles ;) Cheers. --kit 18:26, 19 February 2009 (UTC)

Hopfully UU and MrN9000 will not abandon this completly?--Sycamore (Talk) 12:01, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
I think having two has worked well for me and UU... If one of us was not around the other filled in. Or shoveled out. Either way, I recommend two poopsmiths. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 12:02, Feb 21

Fiona Apple images

Thanks for the image help - it looks much better, I'm impressed.

Although I still like the bottom photo on the left to balance the pictures out, but I'll defer this time.

If you have twenty three more minutes to help me with some image arrangement stuff (I'm still really trying to get the hang of it) I would be indebted to you if you could suggest some better arrangements for the Los Angeles Angels images.... I wouldn't blow you or anything, because my price for that is a lot higher, but I would appreciate any time you could give.

Thanks --TPLN 18:25, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Had a look, is that better?:)--Sycamore (Talk) 20:12, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
The look is much better. But the jersey image necessarily "goes with" the "Latest Controversial Change" section, so it's a toughy. Plus the two other pics are inexorably tied together, so you can't put the jersey image between them. Oh, well. I don't know.
Also, I understand getting rid of red liks, but sometimes the joke is in the link ("drug addled thugs" - there is no joke without that clearly referring to the Oakland A's; and "worst president ever" - linking to Bush is a tired cliche, while linking to the Rangers is a bit fresher). Is there a way to address this fact without a red link? --TPLN 20:28, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Yeah it can be tricky, as you go along you can move the images about until they fit how you like - it can take time getting it to look cool. Usually I find that they come together as the article goes along, usually pretty spaced is the best way - either staggered or all aligned right looks good. The red links is tricky - they can be added again and its not bad thing to have a few (some say having red links looks more authentic as a parody of Wikipedia). Its really a preference thing, so I can add them again if you'd like?--Sycamore (Talk) 20:24, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
I'll work on it. Thanks for the time and the input. You are a kind and generous Tree. --TPLN 20:28, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
I hope I do my bit, you've been doing some really cool articles:)--Sycamore (Talk) 20:48, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
Well, thank you. I'm just over here playing in my corner, hoping that my mud pies come out at least a little bit tasty. --TPLN 20:57, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Are we...

Are we still good? -Sockpuppet of an unregistered user 12:21, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

Of course:) - I'm told I can be gruff (especially in the morning) and I like to do things my way (heil!). MrN9000 put it pretty good, we need to keep these things working well, and fun on Ban Patrol is not good idea (I'd like some more patrolling and ban patrol use) - I've done and do a fair bit on here, if you have a question as to what I'm doing etc - however that should be done here, not on maintence pages etc (I'm accountable, and not above the same rules as everyone else). I do like to leave silly edit summeries however I usually find that your average vandal will leave pretty legit sounding ones so that you won't check them out:)--Sycamore (Talk) 12:33, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
