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, Yomamen, 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:Yomamen/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 ¬ 19:38 7-Jun-13

edit Your user page

Hello and welcome! This is a humor wiki; and your user page is for you to introduce yourself to us. By all means tell us what you do in real life, but don't use the page to tout or promote off-site careers or professions. Thanks! Spıke ¬ 19:38 7-Jun-13

PS--Oh dear! This is turning into a curriculum vitae. Would you please begin to relate the information to the writing of original comedy, or else choose another site to advertise? Spıke ¬ 19:41 7-Jun-13

Er, not to be rude, but I think its just a vanity account. The user linked their FB page, and hasn't done anything here but write up his page about himself being a chef. But, it might just be a ruse unto writing. Just a quick little message here. --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 20:32, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
Look up the word "gourmand"--This is not completely on-the-level. But is it original content, or an ad for a gag developed elsewhere? Author could quickly make this clear--if he will. Spıke ¬ 20:47 7-Jun-13
IDK, It looks more like vanity, seeing the FB link... but you may also be right. Anyways, I'd watch this guy. --The Slayer of Zaramoth DungeonSiegeAddict510 20:53, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
Some vanity is permitted on user pages, and the section about the "driving skills" is funny, so I'll leave this be for now, but I too think he is one to keep an eye on. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 21:30, June 7, 2013 (UTC)
