Uncyclopedia:Re-feature queue[edit]

Do you know what's happening with this? Apparently, Xam left and the whole project stopped. I thought we decided that an old article was supposed to be re-featured for every three new features. I think if this was to be resumed, we wouldn't need Oscar's picture or anything like that. (And admit, the picture does get a bit boring after a while). Anton (talk) 14:03, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for not being of any assistance to you in terms of featuring things. I don't know if you have noticed but my rights have been removed. Anton (talk) 12:34, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

VFH[edit]

Hey Leverage, add .featurecode { display: inline !important; color:black; } to User:Leverage/uncyclopedia.css! It's magic. Anton (talk) 15:04, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I just tried it but I think I already put it in there. It's the thing so you see the green and red button on Vfh right??? Leverage (talk) 11:03, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Shop[edit]

Follow-up: looks like Printfection changed their business model on us on July 31, so we no longer have a shop. Thanks for mentioning it to me; I probably wouldn't have noticed it for about another six months. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Thu, Aug 13 '15 1:45 (UTC)

Wow, that sounds serious. Is there a way to get it back or contact another organization that'd be willing to collaborate with us? Anton (talk) 08:26, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I love the current page anyway. To be honest, after what Miley said about shipping, I thought it was pretty unuseable. There is a British page called [1] which I can recommend. I make all my Lucy Thai Why Wont You Marry Me? t shirts there. I don't know about shipping internationally though. Maybe the (slightly gay) solution would be to have similar shops for different territories? Leverage (talk) 11:03, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Protection change request[edit]

MadMax seems to have made a mistake, when protecting features as he gave them a full (administrators only) instead of a semi-protection (autoconfirmed users only). So would it please be possible for you to change the protection of the following pages: Corn snake, The Evolution of Modern Music, American cuisine, Uncyclopedian and UnScripts:Prometheus? Anton (talk) 17:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

By the way, there seems to be a great number of recent features that haven't been protected at all. But I don't know if it was a mistake or a policy. Anton (talk)
I have to admit: till i saw zb's additions to adminning, i didn't know we had to change their status - I thought it was automatic. I don't see it as too automatic, it's not as though there is a culture of attacking these articles. I will try to change the status of the others. Leverage (talk) 09:04, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Do you need a list of articles that need protection? Anton (talk) 09:10, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I misread your message. It's fine, I am not sure that protecting all features is that useful. On another topic, have you noticed that Before Broken Britain has been featured for tomorrow? Perhaps move BBB to the bottom, below the wild horses, and change the date to August 19 or 20? Anton (talk) 09:40, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Another request if you don't mind[edit]

The voting at VFH goes at a snail's pace, so I am thinking: would it be possible to Special:MassMessage all our active (non-blocked) users to ask them to vote? Some might be new users unaware of the VFH system, while for some it might serve as a reminder that there are many new nominations. If you agree, I have already written the message to send out, which is just below. Anton (talk) 10:21, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia needs YOUR help![edit]

Uncyclopedia cannot feature an article if nobody votes for it. VFH, the page where we vote on our best articles currently has plenty of nominations (21, to be precise) that are still waiting to be featured, because - as you have already guessed - there aren't enough people voting on them. That means that either we have plenty of great articles waiting to be read by you or that we have very few people voting on them. You can help in both cases. Anton (talk) 10:21, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Just having a look at VFH and we have 21 items, 15 of them have a score of less than 4. Anton has nommed 10 of the 21 (three are from the recent Happy Monkey Comp, a couple are self-nominations) and the last four of them nominated have only a single vote (by the nominator). Everyotherusernamewastaken has nommed 4 of them (one is a self-nom), and 3 out of 4 have less than 4 votes, two of them have been on VFH for 2 to 3 months (at one point we used to have a 1 month smiting point for articles that didn't look like they were going to make the grade). MyOwnBadSelf has nommed two (one with a score of 1 another with a score of -2).
With respect to the authors of the articles it could be that the quality or the type of humour of those nominated aren't sparking enough love to warrant people voting for them? Over the last ten days we do have a 7, a 6 and a 5 on some articles which would indicate that some activity is there. I do think often when you have a small number of people nominating articles it does tend to focus on their own sense of humour, rather than a "broad church" approach.
For me personally I'd like to see less mass nominations by individuals (or even little cliques) and more from across the entire community. Maybe if we limit nominations that any individual can only have say three concurrently on VFH and only one may be a self-nomination, if might help to push only the articles that they feel are of extra quality to be featured? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
Mhaille, I understand your concerns, but let's see if we can get people to vote on the existing pages first. That's my point. We used to have the UnSignpost to remind them of the monthly awards and VFH and now we don't, so I don't think another type of a talkpage reminder once in a while would do any harm. I personally would be against the restricting rule: I really enjoy nominating stuff others write. It's a great way to promote writers and to bring back those who have left. I personally really enjoy seeing different humour styles (including on the main page) and try to promote diversity as well. Nothing is as different from your HMC winning article as Snarglefoop's Dodo, and nothing is as different from IFYMB!'s banana UnNews as British ski jumpers. Self-noms might be a problem (I am aware that currently 4 of my pages are on VFH), but if nominating others' work was a regular thing, I personally would prefer not to resort to them. What I think we are dealing with here is ordinary laziness or people forgetting that VFH exists. Introducing a new rule like that, that might not fix anything but will definitely limit contributions of some people will be a lot more troublesome, than just reminding everyone to vote. Anton (talk) 17:08, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I just killed all the old ones with low health. I agree that there were too many, and that if there are too many, it's kind of overwhelming to potential voters. Our aim should be that if people click on Vfh, they actually end up voting rather than clicking back (that's why I put all the votes and shit at the bottom yesterday). I wouldn't want to introduce any (more) rules, I'd prefer just to give serial nominators like Anton our point of view. In his defence, a Vfh with no new noms would also feel dead, so I think it's up to us as experienced users to exercise good judgement. Leverage (talk) 17:14, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Always thought that, unless the number of the nominations got well over twenty, so that it'd be literally impossible to keep track of them, more noms just encouraged people to read, to write and to vote. That's how it works for me, at least. Perhaps I over-nominated in the last few days. My main goal is to welcome writers, no matter whether they're new or veteran. Mhaille, I remember how you commented on the fact that two of your pages got nommed without you having to whore them anywhere. I assume it was a positive feeling and that's the real goal here. If a nomination, an encouragement welcomes back a great writer but makes reading VFH just a little more tedious for an average voter, I'd personally still do it. But I understand your opinion. Anton (talk) 17:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Carter[edit]

On this article, should the subject be referred to more as "Mr. Peanut" or "Jimmy Carter"? I have to admit, the former might seem lame at first, but it actually made me laugh out loud, because it's just so surreal. Still, the joke might get tired after a while.--EpicWinner (talk) 14:51, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

I did a similar silly one for President Hoover. I have to say I had to google carter to even get the reference here. My impression after skim reading it was that it looks like different people wrote it. It might be nice, if you want to, to go through it and make it more consistently peanut with some thoughtful exceptions to leaven the joke. Leverage (talk) 07:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

Very swish. You are a clever sausage with all this formatting lark. I hope you are putting it to good use in your day job too. Ps. I had a look at that page with the randomness and drunk stuff and it occurred to me you like might like www.sickipedia.org . As the name suggests, it tends to be open to near the knuckle racist/sexist jokes, but I still find myself laughing at stuff even if I think, politically speaking, it's a bit lame or reductive. e.g.:

What do Koreans put on when they're taking their dog out?

Oven gloves.

Wes Anderson feature thingy[edit]

This could work. – Wageslav (talkctbslog) 09:31, 21 February 2016 (UTC)

WES ANDERSON

is an American director, famous for his films

Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom

as well as his close working relationships with actors such as

OWEN WILSON

LUKE WILSON

JASON SCHWARTZMAN

ANJELICA HUSTON

WILLEM DAFOE

WARIS AHLUWALIA

JEFF GOLDBLUM

and

BILL MURRAY.

One must take into account that while many of his films have similar motifs and styles, they are all at the same time very original and all their own.

This article was written in partnership with Roman Coppola. (more...)

VFH[edit]

Hi Leverage. Recently someone came into the IRC complaining that the past features weren't displaying correctly and that no one bothers to try and fix it. They then left without bothering to try and fix it. They did suggest to me that featuring a new article would fix it so, knowing that I would only fuck it up further, I endeavoured to feature an article and have fucked it up further. Help? - B@NZai k!tten BANZAI! (Meow?)B 16:47, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Hey, you didn't do anything wrong. That Oscar Wilde image cannot be up if a page is being featured, they both appear. The template to edit that is here: Template:Featuredarticle/include. If you look at the history, you either add or subtract those 118kb. I have done it anyway. As for the recently featured thing, it won't work unless there are actually recently featured articles in the queue. I have deleted it for now, editing that same template.
