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, Wolfkeeper, 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:Wolfkeeper/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 03:38 25-Jul-13

edit Concorde

Hello and welcome back! Bonner had welcomed you, but that was five years ago, and I've replaced his welcome with my own, which might be more up-to-date.

With regrets, I'm going to undo your edit to this article, because:

  • What you have typed is a bulleted list, and what you want to type is a table.
  • What you have typed as the list entries are nonsense numbers. So the list has the problems we (in HTBFANJS) notice in a lot of lists: That they tell the same joke over and over.

What you might do is give this article an Infobox. This is a place for thumbnail summaries, and it makes an Uncyclopedia article look a lot like a Wikipedia article, which is always a plus. Click here: {{Infobox}} and read the directions. There are many derivatives and one of these might fit the article even better. Happy editing! Spıke Ѧ 03:38 25-Jul-13

edit User:Wolfkeeper/Ameristan

I have moved your new article to your private userspace, where you can take as long as you need to develop it. The article has the conceptual problem that you have created a fictional country called Ameristan, and any reader is going to have to guess your invention before they are able to read about it.

The article has the additional severe problem that it is, from start to end, just a bitter criticism of America (probably meaning the United States) which, despite occasional jauntiness, is something a partisan critic might state in complete seriousness. The caricatures that government is bought-and-paid-for, and that the country is primitive for lack of health guarantees, are debatable; but simply listing caricatures does not constitute an article in a comedy wiki. It is a sardonic list of grievances. I often advise authors not to treat subjects of extreme disagreement (races, religions, or political views) by simply trying to make the extreme more extreme; it is indistinguishable from serious polemic, and so is this article of yours.

You are welcome to write from an anti-American viewpoint, but please add some actual comedy into this article before trying to install it to the main encyclopedia. Spıke Ѧ 19:51 26-Jul-13
