edit Pre-Rendered Welcome!


The Balloon welcomes you!

Hello, Truthiness899, 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:Truthiness899/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) 02:50, Aug 6

edit Don't

Leave messages on people's user pages. Please use the talk page for that purpose. Thanks. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb (talk to me) Yeah well to bad I can't post on your user page

edit On your article

I didn't delete it because it was short. It was actually longer than most of the stubs we get around here. I deleted it because all it was was a bunch of gay jokes about a town, with poor formatting, and stuff nobody cared about. Also, we don't just label new articles with a stub tag, we usually end up labeling them ICU unless they happen to be particularly good in their sub state. If you'd like your article restored for further work, I can put it in your userspace, but I'm afraid I can't put it back in the mainspace. Leave me a message on my talk page if you'd like it back. -RAHB 20:33, 7 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, yes you can post on my talk page, as far as I can see. Just click the discussion tab on my page. Anyways, it's not the gay-bashing in and of itself that bothers me. It's not that gay jokes are particularly offensive. I'd hazard a guess that almost nothing is too offensive here. The problem is that articles about how stupid your hometown is are old and done. And nothing but gay jokes in one article is just not funny. It needs to be more original than that. People post here every day with things about how shitty their hometown is, and you know what? I can't tell any of them apart. Because they all sound exactly the same. And that's just not something that is good. Anyways, I have restored the article to your userspace at User:Truthiness899/Canton GA, that way you can work on it there and it is safe from deletion. Have somebody look at it when you want it moved back to the main space, and we'll see if it'll fit in well. Just ask if you have any more questions. -RAHB 04:53, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
