edit Page rape

Welcome back! A promising start of an article there in your userspace. Spıke Ѧ 20:47 31-Aug-14

Thank you. It's been quite a while. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:47, August 31, 2014 (UTC)

edit Charles Darwin

Thanks for the revert there, as changing "Galapagos" to "sexy" was not an improvement. The paragraph in question is not in the least about Darwin, and going back in the history to Dexter's last edit ("cleaning up most of the quotes," though he left way too many), what this article needs is a giant history merge and clean-up. Are you enthused? Spıke Ѧ 03:27 6-Sep-14

Err, maybe in a little while, but there are a few other articles I wanted to take care of first, mainly a lot of the ones that I started in my userspace but never finished. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 22:54, September 6, 2014 (UTC)
I just would like to say that it's good to see you again in any capacity. The world needs more rainbows. Or something. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 22:57 6 September 2014

edit Mac OS Y‎‎

When a new user's first edit is a commercial weblink, I tend to assume he is not a legitimate contributor at all, and perma-ban. However, NewNewz only added to a list of software "resources" (which I am pleased you went on to delete), so we'll stick with your one-month ban. Spıke Ѧ 23:40 14-Sep-14

PS--If you're going to resume doing administrative stuff like that on a regular basis, you might sign in at UN:AA. Spıke Ѧ 23:42 14-Sep-14

I'll sign, although I'm not sure how often I'll be on. I'm going to try to edit regularly but I can't make any promises. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 00:44, September 15, 2014 (UTC)

It doesn't constitute a promise, but the point of being on the list is to identify you as a possible resource for newbies. On or off is fine. PS--I always thought of you as one of the Aussies; didn't realize we were in the same time zone. Probably because of the "hard to pronounce" thing. Spıke Ѧ 01:04 15-Sep-14

edit VFH

Hi Xamralco. I am going to swop around the 'features to be' as I already had Bluestocking down to be the next one. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:05, September 25, 2014 (UTC)

That's fine. I just noticed that there weren't any features queued for a few days and The Doctor is IN had so many votes. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 21:23, September 25, 2014 (UTC)
I was trying to 'stagger' features about every 4th day or so. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:57, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
I see. VFH does seem to be pretty dead. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 08:13, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
It has perked up recently but I had to raid the quasi-featured articles to change the front page as many had 'failed' with vote tallies higher than the ones we were now featuring. I think as admins, we also should search out other author's work. My best ever discovery was that Soggy had been on Uncyclopedia for six months before anyone noticed his excellent/funny contributions. Sometimes it just needs encouragement to get people motivated to contribute here. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:00, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
You're too right. Old users seem to leave a treasure trove of non features when they disappear and the vast majority sit, ignored. User:Procopius had more features after he left than before. --Nikau (talk) 15:12, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
I totally agree. I'll start searching through userpages to find quality articles. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 15:48, September 26, 2014 (UTC)

edit UnSignpost interview

Journalist: Hello Mr Mralco! As a prominent Uncyclopedia editor, you should have known that having your name appear on Recent Changes too often might make the members of Uncyclopedia's secret police, who also happen to be Uncyclopedia's main newspaper's editors, want to ask you some questions. Unfortunately, when this is the case, there is no turning back. So, here you go:

  1. To begin with, how do you think the one-adoptee policy on Uncyclopedia influences our writers' population pyramid? (Note: this isn't a yes/no question.) Anton (talk) 19:02, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    Yes. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:20, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    Oh darn it, I didn't read the small print. That always seems to get you. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:20, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
  2. Thank you! Another one: how many articles have you written to support research for cure of deadly diseases? Have you donated any million dollars to the cause? Anton (talk) 19:38, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    Six and yes. I take deadly diseases very seriously. My grandmother died from one. Also, that was more than one question. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:47, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    I'm sorry! If you would like to know, my grandmother also died from one, when I was nine. I'll continue with something else if you don't object! Anton (talk) 19:55, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
  3. How many questions can you answer, while holding your breath? Have you made any progress in that area since you were first asked that question? Anton (talk) 19:55, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    I've answered twelve in the past. Let's see if I can break that record. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:00, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
  4. We'll test this. The next round is going to be a blitz. Try answering each question as quickly as you can (with your breath held, obviously).
    1. Since when have you been aware of the fact that typing, while standing on your head, increases your overall blood pressure? Anton (talk) 22:27, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
      Since I tried to do it while holding my breath. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 22:41, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
    2. What 20th century art movement would you associate this dialogue to? Anton (talk) 22:43, September 26, 2014 (UTC)
      It's gotta be Dada or Surrealism... Potato monkeys. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 01:26, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    3. OK, I am back and I hope that, as an honest man, you are still holding your breath. Tell me, how surrealistic can you get, while meditating in front of the potato monkeys? Anton (talk) 08:06, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
      I'm sorry but I already died from holding my breath for so long. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 17:07, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
  5. That's a pity. Anyway, thank you for donating your time and life to the UnSignpost and we will gratefully talk about your sacrifice in the next issue, whenever it comes out. Oh, but you can't tell us whether you think this interview is over! Maybe I should continue? Anton (talk) 06:56, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
    How can you continue if I'm dead? --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 21:57, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
  6. You are dead, so your opinion isn't really required, even though there is some fraction of reason there. Anton (talk) 17:01, October 3, 2014 (UTC)

edit User Beanna

You are the latest Admin to deal with Beanna. He has developed a personal story arc of articles that have exactly one joke: that all the women of the Stargate series are sluts. After great effort trying to convince him that this is a humor wiki, and after he demanded on my webpage that I upload a long set of his new images to other Wikia wikis, I finally banned him and deleted all his work. Anton199 appealed for one of his articles to be restored to mainspace for further work but did not get far with it. Beanna returned after his ban and, as far as I can tell, has picked up exactly where he left off, installing his personal masturbatorium here. Your advice to him on categories is correct, but is the least of my concerns. Spıke Ѧ 18:05 7-Oct-14

I see what you're talking about. The article does seem to rely solely on the "such and such actress is a whore" cliche without any originality. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 18:40, October 7, 2014 (UTC)

I have now banned him, continuing the past sequence (3 days, 3 months, now 3 years, which should allow him to reach sexual maturity). And nuked him. I fought back the impression that he had resumed, at the exact end of his ban, doing the exact things he was banned for, given that you (and Romartus) had been dealing with him. When youse advised him that this is a humor wiki, he started adding exclamation points to his essays, which was not an improvement. Today I noticed that he uploaded photos with more suggestive titles, which were in fact copies of photos I had deleted. Spıke Ѧ 15:41 9-Oct-14

I see his latest string of edits to Samantha Carter have been reverted, but do you think it might be advisable to revert all the way back to here, before he started working on it? (This is directed at whoever.) -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 17:14 9 October 2014
My impression is that Beanna's time on the site has been totally directed at spending hours telling that one single joke. If you concur, you would be within your rights to take the article all the way back to before it. Spıke Ѧ 18:31 9-Oct-14
I honestly don't think either version of the article is really any good. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:58, October 9, 2014 (UTC)
I've reverted. I agree that it's not very good, and it's also quite short; it should probably redirect to Amanda Tapping, which has basically the same information but better and more so. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 20:12 9 October 2014
Checking the Uncyclopedia archives, Beanna is a lot like Crablogger. Check the talk page for reference and how that all ended up. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:02, October 10, 2014 (UTC)
Same m.o. (reuploading deleted photos) but a completely different set of interests, and probably American vs British. The relevant question is whether he was a sockpuppet, and this doesn't suggest it. Spıke Ѧ 17:07 10-Oct-14
Also the outcome was different (rage-quit versus serial bans where he resumes after the end of each). Spıke Ѧ 17:08 10-Oct-14

edit Schools in Canada

One of youse want to review this article that I tagged with {{ICU}}? Author thinks it's done; I still think its comedy theme (school = Soviet tyranny) is sort of trite. Spıke Ѧ 02:50 11-Oct-14

I'm not Canadian so I can't really judge this. That Soviet thing is overused, but there are actually some pretty good parts. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 04:14, October 11, 2014 (UTC)
While I'll neither confirm nor deny any assertions about my nationality, I had a look and I thought it was pretty funny. It makes good use of the relevant stereotypes and goes far enough over the top that it crosses the line twice. I'd like to see it saved. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 20:00 13 October 2014

edit PLS judging

Would you be interested in doing that? I saw that you said you needed a week and Romartus extended the judging period till September 19. It would be great to have you on the team! Anton (talk) 18:34, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

Sure, I would be down with that. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 19:23, October 13, 2014 (UTC)

edit Daily Mail Paranoia

Would you like to review my {{ICU}} on this article and Mjr74's attempt to address it? Or wait for Romartus next morning England time? Spıke Ѧ 02:00 14-Oct-14

I read the article. It's not bad, but then again, I've never read the Daily Mail. I kind of picked up on it being right-wing but the article sort of assumes that the reader is already familiar with the topic. I'm probably not the best judge of it, but I do think it's a lot better than some of the other stuff on here. Perhaps Romartus will be able to analyze it better. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 02:27, October 14, 2014 (UTC)

OK, thanks, I'll ask him. Spıke Ѧ 02:32 14-Oct-14

edit User "Irritable of contents"

Your warning to this user not to tug Featured Articles in a new direction, and reverts where he did the same to individual paragraphs of non-FAs, was correct. But it becomes the latest episode in a long-running soap opera, including my recent warning about the same thing in the preceding section at User talk:Irritable of contents, after which he re-applied his edits to the FA a little bit more cleanly.

After your warning, he went on to hit FA Captain Obvious, and I whacked him. Spıke Ѧ 14:52 22-Nov-14

Alright, sounds good. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 18:13, November 22, 2014 (UTC)

edit Diety

Perhaps the plural merits the redirect you've just created, but this awful misspelling should not be catered to.

Separately, would you please flip your vote on Lava lamp at VFH, or else provide a rationale that makes sense? Spıke Ѧ 21:28 1-Jan-15

Diety was simply a typo. I meant to redirect Deity after seeing that Deities didn't exist when I created a link to it. As for Lava lamp, I already explained my reason for voting against, which I think makes perfect sense. Humor derives from the truth. The whole article is based on the premise that lava needs to be illuminated, and it doesn't. Therefore, I found the entire article to be a stretch. I get that it's a pun, but I don't think it works. That's just my opinion. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 21:48, January 1, 2015 (UTC)

edit TAW

Thanks for signing up as a judge! But it would be great to have an article from you, so there is no reason why you can't have several more days to finish it, if you started late or if you haven't started at all! Please, let me know if you'd like to. Anton (talk) 11:47, January 8, 2015 (UTC)

I would like to write but I'm going to be away all weekend and I've been pretty swamped this week. I might be able to get something done next week but I'm not 100% sure if I can finish a whole article. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:11, January 8, 2015 (UTC)
Ok, I understand. Anton (talk) 07:29, January 9, 2015 (UTC)

edit Big Mac

Under the Mackinac Bridge

The Big Mac spans the Strait of Enchirito, as Flint's Michael Moore documented in Super-Size Me!

Don't forget (possible section Other Big Macs) that in Michigan, the Big Mac is the troll bridge between the two penisulas, although the average Michigan couch potato is too large to cross the Big Mac, despite its many suspension cables, from eating too many of the other Big Macs. Spıke Ѧ 17:44 28-Jan-15

I never knew that. Now I feel uncultured. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 18:24, January 28, 2015 (UTC)

For most of us, feeling uncultured requires years of living in Michigan! Spıke Ѧ 18:36 28-Jan-15

A 'troll bridge'? --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:25, January 29, 2015 (UTC)

Click on the link and ask again if still unsure. Spıke Ѧ 16:36 29-Jan-15

edit Horace

I beg your pardon! Category:Persons born in 65 BC was a joke. I famously sided with Mnbvcxz against [Category:Persons Don Pardo wouldn't give a hand job to] and its ilk, but this red-linked category seems like a fine way to make fun of Wikipedia categories that slice-and-dice everything into powder. Spıke Ѧ 01:01 1-Feb-15

Oh, my bad. I assumed you sporked the categories from Wikipedia and left that one by mistake. It seemed exactly like something Wikipedia would have as a category so I figured it actually was. Who knew Poe's law could apply to Wikipedia? :) I'll go revert it now. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 01:06, February 1, 2015 (UTC)

Depends on what the meaning of "spork" is. Wikipedia does have a category, but I typed this in manually, and not literally, it turns out. If you mean to assert that my version of WP:Category:65 BC births fails as unoriginal, then fine. 01:30 Or if you think it will look to other readers, too, like a mistake. An edit may be the solution. Do you realize that, after a conversation with Jokerman, I cited Poe's law in my quasi-official style guide Choice of Words? Spıke Ѧ 01:41 1-Feb-15

I love the correction. It doesn't just make the joke clearer, it makes it funnier. I just read CoW. A lot of good points. Nice addition to HTBFANJS. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 02:25, February 1, 2015 (UTC)

CoW began when people complained that HTBFANJS was getting too big and I self-deported the stuff that wasn't policy but merely good writing. Spıke Ѧ 02:49 1-Feb-15

edit I want to be an attention whore

I,Prankusername (talk) 02:17, February 18, 2015 (UTC), wrote a post on What should I search for?. It was deleted and an admin called SpikeA said it was no goo, my post was no good, and that' why it got deleted. he said I should make my case here. Now, I don't really want to make any case. If it wasn't funny, then it just wasn't. The only problem is that "Xamralco" sounds like the name of a gay Protoss. And I alos believe that you, Xamralco, are a stupid Protoss, since Protoss are pretty evolved beings and find it trivial to hang aroung "human cyberspaces" like Uncyclopedia. So, you are a gay Protoss that failed Protoss high school and got sent to Terra to do work here. You are kinda like the janitor of your "people". This is all. Also, in my post on that page, I did not swear to readers, I only acknowledged that sex exists.Prankusername (talk) 02:17, February 18, 2015 (UTC)

I'm not really sure how to respond to this but I'm definitely entertained. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 05:30, February 18, 2015 (UTC)
'Bout as much as I was with the rasher he gave me on his user page. Claims to be in his 50s and still hasn't mastered the working-on-a-team thing. To be clear, you deleted his page, I went to him and told him you had, and that the next move if he felt strongly about it would be to come here and explain his concept to you. Which I guess he has.

Banning me does not make you any less of a homosexual underachieving Protoss.

Prankusername (talk) 07:43, February 19, 2015 (UTC)

User was banned for this post.
Separately, thanks for your votes on VFD. On Anti-Grue, however, you "assume this is going to be deleted" in error, as your vote to Keep will surely at least make the process take a week, and may save it. Your request that it be userspaced rather than deleted will of course be honored. Or, if you see a way to breathe life into this dog, go for the Save and I will be the first to flip my vote.

edit Powdered Wig Lord

I have overridden your welcome, as this is the fourth-or-so sockpuppet of Emperor Cheese. He is not without talent, but his M.O. is to create or edit articles, especially revolving around tobacco, and add random edits revolving around cheese by way of creating a personal story arc not nearly as amusing to anyone other than himself. Spıke Ѧ 22:38 28-Feb-15

Oh I see. He had actually made some constructive edits such as creating two valid redirects and adding an appropriate photo to an article, so I was unaware he was a sockpuppet. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 23:14, February 28, 2015 (UTC)

I'm probably more of a passive admin. I've been very busy recently and don't have a lot of time to write on here anymore or really do anything. I'm also trying to write my first full screenplay so I guess I'll see how everything turns out. I may return soon but I don't really know. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 20:17, June 30, 2015 (UTC)
