edit Welcome!

Witness the magic of Uncyclopedia!

Hello Whyamidoingthis, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! Thank you for registering an account. 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... Yes. You seem to have a sense of humor, but to be sure that it corresponds to the kind of humor that is accepted on this site, I suggest checking out the following links:

  • Beginner's Guide - A massive guide about how to be the best you can be at Uncyclopedia. I've honestly never read the whole thing in one sitting myself, but it is very useful if you're looking for help on a specific issue.
  • How to be funny and not just stupid - Our flagship link. This will tell you how to not get booed off the metaphorical stage that is Uncyclopedia. I STRONGLY suggest reading the entire thing through, perhaps more than once.
  • Our Vanity Policies - This page details why we don't care about your friends, your school, your gay fourth period math teacher, or the homework he has you do, and in-jokes. DO NOT violate these rules.
  • Uncyclopedia:Best of - For a bit of inspiration. These are our featured articles. This is the kind of stuff we like to read around here.

Now that that's out of the way, just continue reading and you'll notice some more links. These ones are about help in general:

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but I do recommend it, it can be quite enjoyable, and it's a good chance to let others take notice of your writing. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Whyamidoingthis/Article about stuff) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If you want to write and don't know where to begin, consider browsing our rewrite and idea categories. There's also a page with requested articles, if you'd rather start from scratch. We have lots of articles and red links just sitting around waiting to be edited, so don't be afraid - dive right in!

If you need help, ask me on my talkpage, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talkpage. Additionally, the Adopt-a-Noob program is there to bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talkpage to join. I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian, and remember: Have fun with it. We're all here to have a good time and a good laugh. Please sign your name on talkpages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button_sig.png) above the edit box. Again, welcome!

edit Hi there

I took a look at your two articles and removed some content. You don't need the disclaimers on the top of your articles, if people don't know that stuff on Uncyclopedia isn't true they will learn quickly enough. For a new user, your articles are good, but they aren't quite up to par with articles that most people who agree belong in mainspace. If you're going to continue to work on them while they're in mainspace it's fine to keep them there, but most users here will put their articles that they're working on in their userspace (which you can't do yet, but soon.) If you want you can ask someone (like me,) to move your article(s) into your userspace and they'll show up on the page User:Whyamidoingthis/Jonah or User:Whyamidoingthis/The Romanovs depending on which article it is.

I don't want to discourage you, because, like I said you're stuff is really good for someone just starting out. Also, I should let you know that almost everyone's first articles get deleted. Mine did and I've heard countless other established users' stories about their first articles getting deleted. The fact that you're articles are still in main space without an {{ICU}} tag on them shows that you definitely have a future on this site. Good luck and all that.

Or you could do what I did, and make a vanity article about the admin that deleted your articles...not a good idea. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 21:02, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Hi, Lollipop they didn't delete it, and they are not an admin either, they are simply annoying. I know my articles aren't perfect. I thought about just deleting what they wrote from the page...but I just set up the talk page in a nice way which does nothing against the rules, though it singles them out completely. I think I did a rather nice job. --Purple&Pink 21:13, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah...please don't steal my sig. If you want real lollipops, you order here. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 21:22, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Lol, srry, i wasn't really stealing it, i was replying, i have mine own, in fact i was just working with a second one. --WhyAmIDoingThis? 21:30, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Please close your tags. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 21:32, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
Never mind, I did it for you. --Purple mini lolly Lollipop Purple mini lolly - CONTRIBS - WRITINGS - SHOP - Now adopting! 21:35, April 6, 2011 (UTC)
thanks, i was looking and didn't see must have already done it, where did i screw up? --WhyAmIDoingThis? 21:38, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

edit romanovs

I am jumping in here, completely uninvited. I happened across your request for feedback, and thought I would give you my idea on how to deICU your article.

Images Images Images

I have taken it upon myself to find you an amusing romanov image

Romanov nested dolls
many many sons of horses

Because humor is so subjective, and we all write in different styles, I will not even attempt to tell you how to write your article. But my impression is, its irreverency as humor as opposed to misdirection. I do not have much brain cells devoted to the Romanovs. But I would suggest adding a section on Rasputin, and his sway over the family. I would also pretend to be confused between the Romanovs and perhaps Ray Romano, or Anne Romano from TV's Everybody Loves Raymond, and One day at a Time, respectively, or even Romano cheese. But I am not writing this article but thats how I would approach it. And again, I do not think I could stress Rasputin enough, he is funny looking enough to distract from the truthiness. Best of luck. K3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 06:37, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

You seemed ok with it, so I jazzed it up a bit. I went with a sexual innuendo on the horse thing. But did not make it too puerile. (thats what she said) I also added another fake line to the family. I will come up with some rasputin stuff after my drs appointment this afternoon. Cheers. I will help with Jonah too, if you want. That is if you like what I have done so far. K3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 15:14, April 8, 2011 (UTC)
Hey, thanks a bunch, i don't mind wot u did...n' help with anything is always appreciated if u wanna help w/ Jonah...--WhyAmIDoingThis?
well I am done with romonovs until I add Rasputin. I will ?ify Jonah soon. I am on a quest to complete one requested article a day, and only have my opening paragraph, so I want to get to that. K3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 18:42, April 8, 2011 (UTC)
thats fine i'm too busy fighting with my sig's code to care rite now...--WhyAmIDoingThis?
It looks like editors have taken an constructive interest in The Romanovs, and looks like it is going to "stick". --K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 22:38, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

edit that weird space

that space you call weird is differently abled and just because i likes to sit between am a and an n it shouldn't risk deletion by some n00b K3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 03:23, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

I am almost always kidding, It is usually safe to assume if something doesn't make sense, I am trying to be funny K3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 03:47, April 9, 2011 (UTC)
Okay...doesn't make any sense i will tell u did i end up in category sexy people...i put sticker on page and now i'm a one else is in my pages confused...--Purple&Pink I didn't do it! 03:51, 9 April, 2011 (UTC)

the userbox "sticker" did it. if you go to the source of that template, you will see it adds a category tooK3vin-Yak-Bak MUN,CM,NS 03:55, April 9, 2011 (UTC)

edit Hi.

Please stop editing that sig. I don't care if you're just messing with me; if you don't know how it works, don't change it, please. I don't need the grey hairs. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 22:45, 9 April 2011

Also, seriously, it's subst:nosubst| with normal signatures. If you're still using the peaches one, please fix it. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 23:03, 9 April 2011

edit Chat

chats here? Pea Peachess Chess (Chat) 02:49, April 10, 2011 (UTC)

Isn't that what this page is for? Jackofspades (talk) 04:52, 16 April 2011

edit Your vision of a unicorn Romanov family business

I have sporked a copy of your original Romanov article and sent it to a glorious and nonsensical life at Illogopedia. Feel free to edit it, registered or not. If you edit without registering, just make extra certain they look to be constructive edits. If an admin finds a lot of trial and error by an IP anon editor, they may jump to the conclusion that it is a vandal. --K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 04:46, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

edit Another impersonator. Sigh.

Hmm, another impersonator of me. You might want to know none of the rest of them lasted long. Have a nice day. Why do I need to provide this? currently seen here mostly as WHY???PuppyOnTheRadio 05:39, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

Same one just a sub page. --K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 06:14, April 20, 2011 (UTC)

edit Jonah

I have been editing Jonah as well, added an info box, and some nonesense details which put Jonah on his quest to get away from god. --K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 19:21, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

It looks fine but the first sentence is really screwed up... Pea Peachess Chess (Chat) 19:29, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

too bad there is not some way to fix that, just as easy as writing on a talk page, maybe some day--K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 19:41, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry but I was getting offline when I noticed your msg and I looked quickly at the page and saw the jumble at the beginning and wasn't going to try to fix an article and possibly screw something up in my rush when I could write on the talk and it doesn't matter if I screw up mine own talk page. If I had messed this page up I would just deal-with / listen-to-Lyrithya-bitch-at-me later when I get on... Pea Peachess Chess (Chat) 19:45, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
There I edited it some more, (thank you for the initial fix-up) and I am happier now... Pea Peachess Chess (Chat) 19:49, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

I get ya. One of my wiki peavs is when some well meaning editors launch minor fx templates on pages, when they could have just fixed the minor thing. It comes off as Mere mortal, it is beneath me to touch the code of this page - do it do it now--K evilLips MUN,CM,NS,3of7 19:57, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for understanding. Pea Peachess Chess (Chat) 20:33, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
