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, VivianFaberfox, 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:VivianFaberfox/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 review process where an experienced Uncyclopedian will read it and tell you how to improve it.
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 13:45 2-Mar-13

edit Space otter

I've renamed your new article to remove the capital O.

You have good English skills and this article fits a satire encyclopedia. A conceptual problem is that the reader needs to know the main joke in order to type its name and read the article. A tougher problem is that the article is a collection of bizarre and random thoughts and doesn't have a unifying theme. I'll tag it with {{Fix}} and hope you continue developing it.

The "Space Otters" page was originally created and deleted quite some time ago. I saw that the page no longer existed and decided to create an entire account primarily to reestablish this article. This was the, basically, working/criticizable draft to see where I would be standing at the time of its creation (it was also pretty late). While I expected to continue editing this page to increase its quality as I learned how to use the site's features (which are NOT nearly labeled clearly enough), I submitted this page as-is so that it could be accessible, modifiable and a content saver. My comedy stylings (if that is what you wish to call them) are reminiscent of Bobobo-Bo-Bo-BoBo and PaniPoni Dash. As such, word play, puns, fan favorite zaniness and"randomness" (which is usually actually planned material (at least to an extent)) ~is~ likely to be found in any of my submitted works. I thought that, since this is a "COMEDY "MIS"INFORMATION SITE" and all, that "funny" posts would be welcome. If this page, so very mild and unoffensive as it is (not to mention comedic) is "too random" for the site, I feel that I do not wish to be a part of this site any longer. I don't want a place that doesn't want ~me~. I KNOW there are too many fans of good, clean, "random" comedy on the web that I can find somewhere elde to contribute to. This is not meant, necessarily, as "drama," but, if anything, perhaps a warning or sad observation. The preceding unsigned comment was added by VivianFaberfox (talk • contribs)

Thank you for communicating. Indeed, posting to one another's talk page (yours or mine, as I describe in the Welcome message above) is the inefficient way we communicate. And yes, things here are not as well labeled as they could be. This site accommodates many different comedy styles. Randomness is not grounds for administrative deletion, but does put an article at greater risk for deletion by member voting. That you had a plan for inserting it is cold comfort if the plan does not become evident to the reader. For example, having your second paragraph be, in its entirety, "Yay!" breaks the encyclopedia gag and I don't see the comedy benefit.

I can recover the deleted version for you if you like. Spıke Ѧ 08:34 4-Mar-13

PS--I was part of the 4-0 vote in June 2010 to delete it. Spıke Ѧ 08:43 4-Mar-13



Oh please, do elaborate. (This was an entirely intentional sarcastic remark meant to belittle you for your flippant moronicity (Just so we are clear and "on the same page" and what not mind you.). )

Please disregard the vandal above. They have been banned for dickery and vandalism. Also, what was up with the changes to Spike's welcome message? Generally, don't edit comments others have left for you, let us edit them if they are sufficiently bad. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 04:47, April 4, 2013 (UTC)
