Don't want to write anything? That's fine, some of our best users don't write articles. Want help writing something? Just ask. Most users here are more than happy to ramble incoherently about your articles or your ideas. If you aren't sure who to ask just choose an admin and ask them.

If you need help, advice or a rotating garden gnome, then you can ask on my talk page and I'll get back to you as fast as I can. You can also look into the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program and get paired up with an established editor.

Enjoy yourself and remember the rules, especially the first 3.

Again, Welcome!   ----LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:43, June 16, 2013 (UTC)

edit The Great Monkey Civil War

Hello and welcome! On your request (in the Change History) for collaboration, I had comments to its previous author (at User talk:Chewkamatic--among other things a question on whether anyone will look up The Great Monkey Civil War in our encyclopedia. Regarding your edits, I think you laugh more writing about shit than our readers will laugh reading about shit. Shit, like many other things, is not funny by itself on the page unless you make sense of it. Spıke ¬ 23:36 16-Jun-13

edit UnNews:The IRS shall take your cash by force!

This UnNews article has too narrow a niche audience. It is designed to appeal to horny young men, but not to women or older men, and thus is not likely to appear as a news item on the main page. "Right to bear a penis" would refer to men only, and does not appeal to women readers. The idea of confiscating a plastic vagina assumes that the guy HAS one already. Many young men do, but most older men do not, having the benefit of a wife instead. The "plastic vagina" was a fairly recent invention, and most older men never bothered to get one. A woman might have a vibrator toy instead of a plastic vagina. The idea of the IRS having a mandatory collection system rather than a "voluntary" one is a good start, but revenue agents already are authorized to carry guns (just not AK-47's though). Most people just never see revenue agents because they choose to pay their taxes like good citizens or do not owe enough to trigger a revenue agent response. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 08:14, June 19, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, it has the above problems; also, the headline does not further the impression that UnNews is a real news source (the word "shall" and the exclamation point). Also, the image of IRS agents with AK-47s is not funny if it is not true. If it is meant as an exaggeration, then it has a separate problem: With ideologues, religions, and races, you cannot make fun of extremists by exaggerating, because some of them exaggerate in seriousness. Glenn Beck might talk about IRS agents with AK-47s on his radio show, partly to be "funny" but partly because he believes Obama-care is a mortal threat. So the reader is left wondering if you wrote this as advocacy.
For these reasons, I've moved this article to your userspace for any additional work you'd like to do on it. It is at User:ZhenBang/The IRS shall take your cash by force!.
(Technically, of course, the IRS already takes your cash by force, Simsie, and I pay taxes for that reason, not because I am a "good citizen.")
ZhenBang, your other contributions are generally toilet humor and will cause problems for the reader comparable to the ones Simsie notes above. Spıke ¬ 16:39 19-Jun-13

edit Your userpage

Good that you made a userpage, but the userboxes are everywhere! Do you want help in cleaning them up? If so, you can ask me, otherwise, disregard this message. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 00:58, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yes Please! --ZhenBang

Hi Zhenbang. Good that you have your way round UnNews with another story. It needed to be put into a few catergories but otherwise, you are learning here. When you reply to another user here, can you format it like this and 'sign' your post. See that 'squiggle in the bar at the top, that links to your default signature. Press that to sign and then press 'save' . --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:25, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

We can cure writing stuff that is "flat out shit," as your user page describes it. But we can't cure the desire to write about shit (even in describing the shit); that is attitude. We have a fine Proofreading Service here, and a fine guide that describes what is funny, what is not, and what seems funny but has just been tried too often already. It is for you to start wanting to make the reader laugh, as opposed to self-amusement. Failing that, however, there are many other ways to contribute. For instance, your correspondent DungeonSiegeAddict510 is making a name for himself watching out for vandal edits. Spıke ¬ 12:08 21-Jun-13
PS--But I see you have already improved a great deal in the UnNews that Romartus describes above, cheers! Spıke ¬ 16:20 21-Jun-13
Thanks Spike! I just hope I am improving and not writing stuff that is completely crappy. I think my Hungry Hungry Hippos idea was random and good, first worthwhile article I probably wrote. The IRS one is bad, and I don't think I will work on it anymore. Any way for me to delete it? --ZhenBang Talk to me! 20:16, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

I organized the boxes for you ZhenBang, but you still need a sig! --The Shield of Azunai DSA510My Edits! 18:47, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

edit Skywalker's Law‎

Although this article was crap, the real problem (which I explained in {{ICU}} (which you should not have removed but let one of us verify that it is no longer crap)) is that the original author wanted to describe something funny that was going on at another website, and use this website to induce more people to visit that website. However, yours is an improvement. Don't forget to add stuff like photos to make it look like a real Uncyclopedia article. Spıke ¬ 18:38 21-Jun-13

Forgive me for removing it. I will work on it again sometime today and add a picture. The humor in it is currently flat but at least it's actually going somewhere. I hope. --ZhenBang (talk) 19:19, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

edit A sig for you!

Put this snippet of code in your sig thing in your "my preferences" page: {{Subst:Nosubst|user:ZhenBang/sig}}

You deserve all the cakes in the world! Thank you so much! --ZhenBang Talk to me! 20:13, June 21, 2013 (UTC)
