edit Welcome to Uncyclopedia

Spike the Dog (06b)

Spike is a grumpy old dog. You can stroke his fur, or you can be smitten by his stick. It is up to you.

Hello, TrueCatLord, and welcome to Uncyclopedia. This is a wiki (a collection of pages anyone can edit). Words in blue are "links" and can be clicked to take you to another page. This wiki is for comedy. It pretends it's Wikipedia, but we make people laugh, not bore them. If you aren't interested in a fake encyclopedia but in writing fake news stories, we have UnNews, and there are other projects for scripts, lyrics, how-to guides, and so on.

What you can do

You can create your own article. For starters, create it under your own name; for example, User:TrueCatLord/Bedbug. (The red instead of blue is a link to a page that doesn't yet exist.) We have a list of articles that need to be created. You can help without writing articles; just read articles and, if you see an improvement in writing or in comedy, jump in and edit it. In fact, you can help without writing at all, such as organizing, watching for vandals, or even greeting other new users.

What you need

To write articles, you need a sense of humor and an ability to write good English. We all have strengths and weaknesses and you can get help in any area. But everyone needs an ability to work with other people. Be polite, positive, and helpful toward others, and assume others are doing the same toward you.

What to read

Here are some pages that might help you:

For personal help
  • The administrators are willing to help you, and several Uncyclopedians are willing to adopt you.
  • I will watch this page for a while and will know if you edit it. Afterward, you can contact me on my own talk page.
  • If you've written an article, we have a Proofreading service where someone will correct your mistakes, and a review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read your article and suggest improvements.
How to post to talk pages

Please follow these general rules:

  • Add comments at the end of a talk page so people notice them.
  • Start your paragraphs with one or more : characters to indent them and set them off from other people's posts.
  • At the end, type ~~~~ (four tildes), which gets replaced by your user name and the current date and time.
  • Don't delete anyone's messages. In case of any controversy, we depend on an accurate record of what was written. You may disavow your remarks by striking them through like this.

I hope you enjoy it here and write a lot of funny stuff! Spıke Ѧ 11:11 31-May-13

edit Write simply and directly

Hello and welcome! I visited your The Sound of One Hand Clapping and added coding to make the quotations look the way Uncyclopedia articles do them.

Could I ask you to write more simply and directly? Starting paragraphs with "It has been much expressed from even the most ancient civilisations," "Though contrary to popular belief," "Often people may stare and ask," do not make your article sound more encyclopedic. They sound as though you have to idle your rhetorical car for a whole minute before shifting into gear; also as though you are telling me how to interpret facts you have not yet given me. (Nothing personal; I give this advice to a lot of Uncyclopedians; see also User:SPIKE/Cliches-1.)

Also, a more typical Uncyclopedia title would be "The sound of one hand clapping". Unless there is a reason for your title, such as that it is an album title, I'll rename it if you like. Happy editing! Spıke Ѧ 11:11 31-May-13
