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, Whyhow, 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:Whyhow/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 ¬ 12:42 3-Nov-13

edit User:Whyhow/Quantum medicine

I moved this article into your userspace as you say you are stalled. The talk page went with it and is at User talk:Whyhow/Quantum medicine. The article is a concept and, as you say, not a complete article yet.

I see that Wikipedia does not have an article on quantum medicine, but WP:Biophoton has a section on quantum medicine. This could be a source for more ideas. Several of us have played recently at Nuclear weapon. It could be funny if the narrator of the article hopelessly confused positive peaceful use of radioactivity with weaponry.

There are several conceptual problems with this article. First, it is unlikely that anyone will look at Uncyclopedia for the article on quantum medicine. Your material might fit better as a new section or paragraph in another article, such as Medicine or Radioactive. The other problem is that your central theme, Schrodinger and being both dead and alive, is a cute conundrum, but not yet a real joke, unless it relates to something real, or twists and turns on itself in wordplay.
