edit Poopsmith

edit {Oldvfd}

Adding {{Oldvfd}} to article talk pages is one of the jobs of the VFD Poopsmith. If you would like the job, that might be useful, if you ask for it, and if you learn to do it right, such as type the name of the relevant section in the archive file. Also do it for all closed ballots, and ideally stay in the job for several weeks. Spıke ¬ 16:27 19-Jun-14

Could I get the job of a Poopsmith?--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 16:48, June 19, 2014 (UTC)

Did you read what I told you to read? Spıke ¬ 17:16 19-Jun-14
You said "if you ask for it"--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 21:07, June 19, 2014 (UTC)
Then you didn't click on the link.... Spıke ¬ 22:07 19-Jun-14
I did but nowhere does it day about asking for being a poopsmith--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 17:42, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
You did read about how not to do it if you're not the Poopsmith? And what's with writing the same message twice and then striking it out once? Is this to remind me what a precise editor you are? Spıke ¬ 17:51 20-Jun-14
I didn't write it twice it came up like that for some odd reason. Does what you said mean I am the Poopsmith?--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 18:07, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
No, it means I have extreme doubts you can do it correctly, just like you are having trouble making your votes on VFD be a numbered list for easy counting. Spıke ¬ 18:56 20-Jun-14
It also means that you aren't yet the Poopsmith. So don't poopsmith the page anyway. You also didn't read that you don't archive files the moment I gray them out, but leave them there for a while to notify other readers. Happily, at the end of your 12-hour ban, we can assume that any other readers have seen it, if you still think you are the Poopsmith. Spıke ¬ 19:05 20-Jun-14
On a related topic, about your revert of Mimo, I think that a few months ago it was you who suggested him to actually put that particular illustration there, here's a link to the talk. Concerning TheWikiMan026, I think that 12 hours is a bit harsh for someone who is trying to help and if he reads the instructions (and watches the cartoon, if it's restored), maybe he should have a chance at poopsmithing Uncyclopedia? What do you think? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:10, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Restored the cartoon. On TheWikiMan026, 24 hours is de rigueur for technical VFD violations. I gave him 12. No job exists so that someone can have a chance at doing it right, and I am contemplating those losing odds right now. Spıke ¬ 20:18 20-Jun-14
What are "those" doing? I mean the ones who are losing odds. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 20:31, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
Cartoon? Really? I only put it there so this guy would benefit from it. And what is it about it that resembles comedy content anyway? --Mimo&Maxus (Talk) 20:38, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
"Those losing odds" means "those minuscule probabilities." Mimo, I saw that it was an animated GIF and assumed it was another one; now restored. Spıke ¬ 02:31 21-Jun-14
Ah... Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 07:56, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

Spike, I can read because it says "if closed nominations make the page exceed 20 ballots, do it faster to avoid confusion and show that VFD is open for new nominations.", which was what happened and what I did. So you banned me for keeping the rules.--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 11:15, June 21, 2014 (UTC)

No indeed. I banned you for doing the job anyway, thinking that saying CanICanICanICanICanIHuh? is the only job qualification — as you did again on returning from your ban, only you archived but did not delete the ballot for Bum Soup. I have a proposition for you. We have another user, also with an aptitude for reorganization over being funny, and also thought to be a victim of a short administration of unjustice. Contact Jdaloner (though he is a loner) and see if he will share the job with you so you can check each other's work. Spıke ¬ 12:48 21-Jun-14
OK, I accept that--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 13:56, June 21, 2014 (UTC)
SPIKE would you consider wording your messages to thewikiman a little more tactfully. I'd like to see this guy stick around here.
Thewikiman...try to be more careful when you change things, pay attention to the rules and ask other users if you have any doubts over how things work. --ShabiDOO 22:23, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

edit Poop throwing monkeys

Well, no big screw-ups yet today. But with this nomination, you have waded into deep poop. This article is one of the website's in-jokes. I don't think it delivers humor to the reader, but am reluctant to get us tied up in drama again.

Separately, you are right, above, that the rules call for fast archiving when the number of ballots approaches 20, but they are approaching 20 mostly because of your nominations. Would you please never take the 20th slot, in case someone else wants to nominate something? It is like the waitresses eating all the best desserts. Spıke ¬ 13:20 22-Jun-14

"No big screw-ups yet today"? SPIKE this isn't a working office. It's a social wiki where we volunteer our free time. No user should be talked down to like this. --ShabiDOO 22:26, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

edit Welcoming new users

  1. Your welcome file does not seem to correctly render the name of the user in question.
  2. Please review users' contributions or the Block Log before welcoming them. One of the users you welcomed today I perma-banned for planting commercial spam here; the other one Frosty banned for 1 month for "Creating multiple vanity articles." Spıke ¬ 13:29 22-Jun-14

edit Poopsmithing thing

Hey, so I don't know if you're officially a poopsmith or anything? I don't actually care either just as long as you do it right. You did do it right, except for one thing. When an article is voted to be kept, after you archive and put {{oldvfd}} on the talk, you need to remove {{VFD}} from the article itself. I'm not too bothered by this, because everyone forgets to do it but if you could bare that in mind when archiving discussions with Keep as the result, that'd be great. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 23:56, June 22, 2014 (UTC)

edit Judging

I see you didn't have time to write an article. Maybe next year. Would you be interested in judging the articles? Cheers --ShabiDOO 20:27, June 23, 2014 (UTC)

I would actually--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 20:51, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
Okay good. I'm looking for a judge who is willing to read the 15 articles and give a result by Sunday without any excuses or delays. Are you up for it? --ShabiDOO 21:09, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
I am--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 15:36, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
Okay. Go to this page here. You can enter your scores on the scores and comments page per article (change Puppy to TheWikiMan on each page) and then update your scores on the main scoring page (the link I just gave you). Try to do several today. --ShabiDOO 17:29, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
As the "scores and comments page per article" are on the other uncyclopedia, I think TheWikiMan will have to make an account there. So maybe all the pages in question should be brought here, so it's easier to do the judging. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:59, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
What do you mean by "the other uncyclopedia"? TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 19:38, June 24, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. Let's just have you give a score out of 10 instead (like Sarah is doing). Just write on my talk page the name of the article and your score and I'll fill in the rest of the details okay? --ShabiDOO 20:27, June 24, 2014 (UTC)

Sorry, but was the one for MagicBus' article an accident? In this case, you might want to take it out of the total score. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 16:55, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hi Anton. What do you mean? --ShabiDOO 18:22, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

edit Poop throwing monkeys

A fine breed of primate. Have you seen the talk page? It explains a lot of the article's history and the love that flows from it (in chunks) and to it. I myself am but a humble servant of the poop throwing monkeys, Aleister 17:49 24-6-14

edit More thing

So yeah I unblocked you because although you didn't adhere to policy about vote closing being admins only, you did the exact same edit I/any other admin would done. So yeah don't close votes even if the consensus is super obvious like that. Poopsmithing is just archiving. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Icons-flag-au 04:37, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

edit Judging

Hi Wikiman. Please judge some artiles today. Just tell me on my talk page the article and a score out of 10 and I'll take care of all the other details okay? --ShabiDOO 20:41, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

Hey I just saw your results. Just so you know the minimum score is 0.5 out of 10. Cheers --ShabiDOO 20:55, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
I just took care of the confusion with your score page changes. Please keep in mind that this is a friendly competition so please keep your comments to positive ones and constructive criticism ONLY. Also keep in mind that humour is important when marking these articles but so is creativity and originality. All three of these should reflect in your scores. Thanks again for helping out and keep up the judging. --ShabiDOO 22:13, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

edit WTFF?


Artist's illustration of TheWikiMan026 unexpectedly finding himself at the other uncy website. (courtesy of Aleister 17:25 26-6-14)

I was on uncyclopedia but the URL was I was logged out but I logged in and I had no userpage or talk page. The tool bar was also different. Now it's back to normal but I would like to know WTFF happened.--TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 17:18, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

You were induced to surf to one of the imposter Uncyclopedias, which I suspect was the main point of Shabidoo's "writing competition." Spıke ¬ 17:24 25-Jun-14
That was the site I called "the other uncyclopedia" on your talk page, but I didn't give you the link because it would have been against Wikia's Terms of Use (because it would mean that I was promoting Wikia's Uncyclopedia's rival on the Wikia Uncyclopedia). I wouldn't call the other one impostor, though, and if you are interested in the reasons behind the split (that happened in 2012), then you can read Forum:Forks in the road - Uncyclopedia moving from Wikia, a discussion. So, basically, one is hosted by a commercial organization (Wikia) and the other one - not. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:38, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Wait, so you are saying there is two Uncyclopedias TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 17:45, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Which one are we on? TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 18:04, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
We are on the wikia Uncyclopedia site, where Uncyclopedia has been hosted ever since its founder abandoned the site. Some people disagreed with wikia's content warning (now removed) and generally got annoyed with admins, which occurs on both sites and in fact on any wiki, so they split and formed another site. Our site keeps an aim of strongly parodying an encyclopedia (Wikipedia) without straying too far off into random comedy. Some people prefer this site, some people that and some stray between both. Sir ScottPat (converse) White Ensign Scotland Flag 1 Compassrose VFH UnS NotM WotM WotY 18:59, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
The point of the Happy Monkey contest was to create lots and lots of new pages for both sites, quality pages. There was one held there last year but not here, so Shabido was nice enough to include everyone this time. Simple as that. And it's odd that long time users can't be told that they can share their articles with two known and read sites, and hang out with people from both. Aleister 19:05 25-6-14
I don't know why you have to make everything so unpleasant SPIKE. --ShabiDOO 20:39, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
Is the whole issue of the Fork still such a big thing? Sir Reverend P. Pennyfeather (fancy a chat?) CUN VFH PLS 20:55, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
No. SPIKE and his obsessive paranoia with the fork is a big thing. Almost everyone else has moved on. --ShabiDOO 20:59, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
So there used to be one Uncy but it split because people had the Wikia censorship. Am I right? TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 22:02, June 25, 2014 (UTC)
It was the combination of the content warning and the Wikia censorship of images. There was a month or so of discussions on IRC, and most everyone who frequented IRC went over to the other site. Those of us who weren't on IRC stayed here or frequent both sites. That is why the other site has an IRC channel and we do not, along with Wikia's decision to cede the IRC channel to those who were using it. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 00:23, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Probably the biggest reason many left is that wikia are a commercial company making profit out of content which is licensed under a non-profit license. If anyone can prove to me that Wikia do not make profit out of Uncyclopedia I will happily return to this wiki take adminship again and attempt to save this wiki from its current state of damnation. If wikia could prove they don't make profit out of Uncyc they would, but they don't... Until such time as wikia honour the license I have no idea why any of the rest of you are still here... I'm serious. I really don't. MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 02:07, Jun 26
Well here we are reliving the fork/spoon narrative once again. Let's get back to judging and congratulating the writers on some very very fine fine articles. A lot of users have put a lot of hours into it and I'm not going to let any of this disrupt an awesome inter-wiki Happy Monkey. --ShabiDOO 02:33, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
You mean the awesome inter-wiki HAPPY MONKEY. Obviously. ;) MrN Icons-flag-gb HalIcon.png WhoreMrn.png Fork you! 03:00, Jun 26
HAPPY MONKEY!!! --ShabiDOO 03:03, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
Oh dear..more knickers getting thoroughly twisted here! I agreed to be a judge on the interwiki competition. Not everyone is keen on it at the other site either (EMC). Forkists/Spooners/Inbetweeners...Let it Be. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:19, June 26, 2014 (UTC)
I'd put the Let It Be youtube vid on here, but Wikia won't let youtubes run on this site. I'm on both sites because I see uncyclopedia as one entity, and am glad we have two sites (when the other site had one of those sick forest fire week destructions it lost hundreds of good pages which are still here. "Ginger" and "Baseball" come to mind, as they always do). I didn't know about the split (not an IRC person and nobody was courteous enough to clue me in) before it occurred, so I have that perspective as well. And a great HAPPY MONKEY contest (and Happy poop throwing monkeys) one and all! Aleister 12:27 26-6-14
Actually, Wikia does let youtube videos "run" on this site, just not on the page they were embedded in anymore; they run on their file page, which is a big pain. When Romartus and I visited Wikia HQ, one of the questions they asked us was whether any Uncyc users were interested in making videos for Uncyclopedia. Since nobody was doing any of that since the split, we said no. But it might be something to look at for the future, except that videos don't run on the page they are embedded in anymore, which kind of defeats the purpose. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 06:46, June 27, 2014 (UTC)

edit What happened with the font?

Moved here from Forum:What happened with the font?

Something very not right has happened with the font. I don't know what & how but you can see & feel a big difference TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 11:58, June 26, 2014 (UTC) Also the Edit, watch move and all that toolbar at the top is different. the toolbar with the sign button looks different TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 12:00, June 26, 2014 (UTC)

Please do not open a broadcast at the Forum just because something looks different; and do not ask for answers without defining what you are talking about. Regarding "the font," Uncyclopedia uses many fonts, and the layout of the page depends on the "skin" you chose in My preferences. Something happened about a month ago that people thought was comparable to us being forced into a different "skin," but Wikia never got to the bottom of it and it was fixed. Also, if your connection gets slow, your browser can time-out before finishing rendering the page and it will look different. Things break and get fixed here. Spıke ¬ 04:23 27-Jun-14

Hi TheWikiMan! Can you finish scoring the Happy Monkey competition? I believe the closing time is today as the winner will be announced tomorrow. Thanks. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:29, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

Someone asked TheWikiMan to stop judging because according to that someone he didn't sign up properly. I think he should finish the others, mainly because he gave me a good review, but if not I suppose all his reviews must be stripped.--Sigphoto|(get dtf) 22:43, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

edit Scam letter

Hi! As the VFD entry was closed and archived very quickly, I didn't get any response about the subpage of this article! Could you, please, tell me if you nominated it because you thought it was unfunny or for some other reason? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:43, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

I nominated it beacause I found it unfunny The preceding unsigned comment was added by TheWikiMan026 (talk • contribs)
But have you read the entire article, or just the subpage? Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:36, June 28, 2014 (UTC)
I also read the page that shows below the title and also found it unfunny TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 11:44, June 28, 2014 (UTC)

I know some people disaprove of making the spoon more like fork but the IRC channel isn't that bad an idea TheWikiMan026 MUN,UmP, (Chatter) Norn Iron Flag 12:15, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for your opinion. If you would investigate before broadcasting, you would find that we investigated and disposed of this idea within the year. Spıke ¬ 13:08 29-Jun-14
Well, as it happened before TheWikiMan joined, I think it was hard for him to find this discussion. In addition, the situation discussed in the previous forum was very different, because the person who proposed the channel, was also the one who created it, and it happened before anyone could know about that idea or express an opinion. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 13:24, June 29, 2014 (UTC)
I am reopening a forum on this topic, since I think this can be discussed more than once a year, if interest has changed. I would rather get all parties' opinions on having an IRC channel before closing the discussion. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 18:38, June 29, 2014 (UTC)

edit VFS

Hello. Just so you know why I changed VFS, it comes down to two things:

  1. The vote was well and truly over. It was actually over before my edit on there, so leaving it as it was was looking silly.
  2. VFS is not really the place for bitching about current admins. The best place is actually on the admin's talk page, and to change the bitching to a discussion. As it says in UN:JOB, none of the admins are paid - they're simply users who have hung around enough to know how this place works, and what helps it work.

Speaking of making things work, the current format of VFD has taken a fuck-ton of effort - much of it mine - to get it to the state where it makes sense, and helps clean up and build a useful site. The processes and policies we have in place keep it working. This could be as simple as correctly formatting a vote, or ensuring that when a vote is closed it's closed properly. I can see above you've had discussions about this in the past. Keep in mind what other users instruct you on is done to keep this place going, also you can also enjoy it. I'd suggest rather than resent an individual for instruction, appreciate that they are working with you, and take what is said on board.                               Puppy's talk page02:11 pm 24 Jul 2014

edit IRC channel

I've replied on my talk page and so have others. The original forum, ignoring a campaign for more votes, stands in favour of the motion clear by two votes. I would suggest that as 2/3 of the voters are in favour that we pursue this idea while it's fresh. Your next port of call is discussed on my talk page. Keep going!
