It's like IRC, minus the fail.
Skype is a chat client that supports instant messages, chat rooms, audio conferences, and video chats. Unlike IRC, it's much more difficult to flood, spam, attack, or even miss messages - any messages you haven't gotten delivered due to an Internet failure will be resent the moment you come back online.
UnSkypelopedia takes advantage of this chat client with a chatroom that hosts calls on a semi-regular basis. This gives you the ability to talk directly with Uncyclopedians using VoIP.
No mic? No problem.
If you're uncomfortable with the idea of sacrificing your anonymity, don't worry - you can listen in on the calls without having to join. Sometimes it takes a while to warm up to UnSkypelopedia, and there's no rule that says you can't be a lurker. The only rule we have is, don't be a dick. Or if you feel the need to, at least be funny about it.
Experience Uncyclopedia like never before.
I'm still not sure if that's a real selling point or not. But anyway...
UnSkypelopedia has developed its own, unique culture. A culture of talking over each other, screwing up Skype protocol, and playing pranks on unsuspecting customer service people across the globe. Trust me, it's got culture. In the same way a Petri dish has culture.
