New stuff at the end, please; I'll make it fit into the section organization after the topic dies down.

Is this about UnNews or UnNews audio? If so, talk to me here.

I don't routinely put a Watch on other people's talk pages. Nothing personal! I endorse keeping a conversation together on a single talk page, but a few days after the conversation ends, I will Unwatch you--the alternative being endless false alarms.


Anything typed here I may post-edit clerically. Typically, I combine parts of dialogues that took place on the other guy's talk page. Some conversations that pertain to the text of an article are moved to that article's talk page.

William Lane Craig

Excuse me good sir. But why did you undo my edits to my William Craig article? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Axlman5 (talk • contribs)

I saw in RecentChanges the one where you changed "my dirty vag" to "my smell [sic] vag." I decided this was not enough better to warrant going in and correcting it, and instead used my magic Rollback button, which undid many other changes I had not seen. The rest of them are mostly different rather than better, but I don't mind them. You may undo my change, though the whole article is ranty and slutty and I hope you will go on to improve its tone rather than just delight in a website where you can use swears. Articles should be good for the reader and not just a naughty pleasure for the writer. Thank you for asking and not just reverting. Spıke ¬ 21:40 25-Jun-12

I don't know if this how I'm supposed to respond to your response, but I can't figure out any other way lol.

I appreciate the criticism. I'll see if I can improve on the article, with your critiques in mind. However, I just want to say a few things:

I think there was significantly more to the article than me "delighting in " naughty language. However, I guess there was a lot of sexual jokes, and maybe I can change some of them. I did think to myself that the sexual jokes were kind of cheap, but it is kind of funny considering who Craig is and how his responses are still consistent what he actually says in real life. As for the ranty nature, that's kinda my style, but I don't think the rants are so unfocused to render the article unpleasant to read.

Most of the edits I made were for spelling and grammatical changes, so that's why they weren't "better". The only reason the "smelly vagina" one was made was because that made it consistent with Craig's response.

Anyway, thanks for the response. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Axlman5 (talk • contribs)

Yes, typing here is the usual way to reply, as I prefer that the conversation all be in one place. You could have posted something on User talk:Axlman5 but I am not "watching" you at the moment. I have been visiting Special:RecentChanges the last few days, where I see everything, but normally I would not know that a response there was addressed to me.
Separately, you need to sign your posts. Just type ~~~~ at the end of your message and it will be converted into a signature and a timestamp.
Let me retract the assertion that you were "delighting in" anything, and simply encourage you to go beyond making contributions in the character of the article, but also strive to improve it. Cheers! Spıke ¬ 01:59 26-Jun-12

Unified template for nations of the world

I think I've found our {{Template template}} for nations of the world. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Tue, Jul 3 '12 4:24 (UTC)

That's what I was talking about. Now, are you saying it's on me to populate it? Spıke ¬ 22:13 3-Jul-12

Oh no. I figured it would be a collaborative thing. We can start with any of the sandboxes in my userspace, but I have to clear one out, first. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Wed, Jul 4 '12 1:26 (UTC)

Well, tell me where you put it and I'll visit. Now, the templates for North America, Central and South America, etc., should correspond to these bars, but it would be nice if the relevant bar to any article would default to the show state. Then we wouldn't need a ponderous template listing every real country for which Uncyclopedia has an article. Spıke ¬ 15:27 4-Jul-12

Yeah, that was the idea from the beginning, right? Only show the section that corresponds to the page it's on?

Anyway, do I need to import this? Because we either need it, or something like it. Its code is needlessly complex for our purposes here, but might be useful for other shit later on. If I do import it, I gotta rip the shit out of it which we don't need and will never need; if I don't import it, I gotta come up with something from scratch. Your call. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Thu, Jul 5 '12 5:48 (UTC)

You could import that, by cut-and-pasting. I guess. --Clicky! Sir CuteKyuremOnTheRadio [CUNPBJ'12PLS(0)Stuy'16] 16:13, July 5, 2012 (UTC)
BB: Yes, that was the idea from the beginning. Dunno whether to believe the documentation on {{Navbox}} that it is used on a googol plex Uncyclopedia pages, but using existing code is attractive from the standpoint of not repeating work, making the appearance to the user more uniform, and making machine-based navigation more expedient. Qzekrom: Yes, in no case was I going to re-type everything.

Sorry to hear about your Internet troubles. Anyway, we have a deprecated NavFrame CSS class + Javascript here. Unfortunately, it has been styled for the unsignpost, which it is used primarily for. Also it is deprecated. We do not have the JS which is required to make the wikipedia navbox work, and looking at the code they use, I can see that it does not even follow the MediaWiki guidelines for best-practices. >_< I'm working on my own, it's mostly done, now all I have to do is convince an admin to import it into the main site script....blah blah blah, it'll be ready to go probably within the week.

In the meantime, feel free to have a look at User:Bizzeebeever/Template. The script isn't working yet, the boxes have not been styled properly, and the formatting is just a rough draft, but...it's a start. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Fri, Jul 6 '12 12:33 (UTC)

Mostly finished

The final version is going to consist of the current country navboxes all transcluded into this one (after I fix them up, of course). If you've got any ideas for a color scheme, that would be appreciated; should I just go with the boring default wikipedia look? ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Sun, Jul 15 '12 7:53 (UTC)

Sorry for the silence--I am still off-line except at the ballpark or parked outside the public library, and my car is not air conditioned, nor is the ballpark. Your template is awesome and exactly solves the problem. I have no opinion on color schemes. Is there a way for the existing continent templates to transclude to this one with the respective continent expanded by default and the other ones hidden? Spıke ¬ 14:05 17-Jul-12

Probably would be a good idea.

On a separate note: I just realized that I left off the entirety of Asia (and Asia is sooo easy to forget, lol I mean liek nobody lives there rite roflbananas). Seeing the template with javascript turned off on my computer (as it usually is), I have to say that is one ridiculously long and ugly template -- even longer and uglier than having a continent navbox AND the {{World Countries}} navbox. So I'm thinking I'll make it so that the appropriate continent is expanded, and then all the other countries are listed in groups, rather than separate navboxes. I'm working on that right now. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Fri, Jul 20 '12 14:44 (UTC)

Walt Disney on VFD

Regarding this comment: Maybe. The impetus behind it was to try and tackle the objection in a civil manner. He/She had been advised previously to add it to VFD, so I figured rather than just remove it - which was my first move - but to add it back and give a rationale behind why it wasn't a relevant VFD nomination. Of course, for my actions I was called an idiot in a grammatically jarring manner, and STUPIDO. Which then lead me to just add him/her to UN:BP. I was working on the assume good grace mentality. I make that mistake fairly often, but I always err on the side of civility where possible. Nominally Humane! 02:35 31 Jul

I like to assume that everybody else is simultaneously a dick and an asshole, and throw doodies at them outright. It seems to get the job done sooner. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Tue, Jul 31 '12 8:05 (UTC)
And sadly, you're often accurate. Nominally Humane! 10:28 31 Jul
To provide background, Puppy submitted a nomination of Walt Disney to VFD on behalf of waltdisneyfan999, and I commented, in voting Keep, that "Sometimes an invalid nomination does not beg to be made valid." I commend you on assuming good faith in your dealings with every new user. Nevertheless, not all whims of all new users deserve syntactic correction. The gist of 999's vulgar nomination was that he reveres Walt Disney and that Uncyclopedia should be damned for daring to ridicule him. Separately, a large majority of users voted with you and with me that the article is not deleteworthy. I was not saying that your impulses were incorrect or dishonorable, and am not responsible for the names you got called afterward. I was saying that this particular nomination (the operative word being "Sometimes") ought not to have been made. Spıke ¬ 18:12 31-Jul-12

Quebec City

I appreciate your tweaks, but I have a hard time figuring out why the article was shrunk by 700 bytes or something. Did you delete some sentences? It doesn't seem so, but it's hard to tell when looking at the difference. BTW, I tweaked an unfunny racist joke to a non racist, hopefully funny one and will try to find a good opening pic if I have time (and the mental energy) tonight. 22:35, August 2, 2012 (UTC)

I would not go into someone else's article, delete material outright, and bill the work as a "copy edit." But I reduced verbosity throughout, and a 700-byte total sounds reasonable to me. PS--Although the Search function has been vastly improved, the Diff function still has profound difficulty noticing that paragraphs in two drafts are almost identical. Spıke ¬ 14:04 3-Aug-12

I reread it today with my friends and had a great laugh. Thank you for the additions/tweaks, I think I should propose that we consider this a collab, or else I'd be rude. What say you? Talk Mattsnow 22:01, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Magnanimous and nice for you to give me credit for helping out. But this is certainly not a collaboration but a substantial copy edit of your material. I don't deserve half a point if it gets featured. Compare Quebec, which is now quite different from the featured edition. Spıke ¬ 16:03 29-Aug-12

I agree that it changed drastically and is a no-brainer for a feature, as it certainly does since it is a lot better than the original thanks to you. (And the original was 14-0 I think) However, I'm quite sure it would set a "precedent". I'm ALL FOR it 100% and you would get that freaking point in the Hall of Shame, which I don't care about anymore and it seems you don't either, great for you. I'm just waiting to see you ask an admin about it, I would support you since it is an extensive change you made, but I don't want it to become the norm. Talk Mattsnow 05:18, September 6, 2012 (UTC)

Paul Ryan

Hi Spike. I noticed there isn't a faux biography of Paul Ryan as yet. Might be possible to create a placeholder article to fill the space as I am sure there will be some unfunny/abuse attempts made between here and November? --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 20:29, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I suppose this falls to me. (I would hate to see the result if I leave it to Aleister.) I noticed the red-link in my recent UnNews (on which I thank you in advance for your VFH vote). I am working on it now. Spıke ¬ 23:29 1-Sep-12
First draft is now done. (A journeyman spork of the Wikipedia article.) Because of the abuse attempts you predict, would you please restrict editing to registered users? Spıke ¬ 00:37 2-Sep-12

OK that's not a bad idea Spike. I will do that. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 07:25, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Gave it a read through. Could be a feature but I would wait to see what Ryan does in the next few weeks. Might be able to add more material. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 07:49, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Now please delete that talk page you added. While anyone is welcome to edit this article as events unfold, the first draft is not so cursory as to merit your invitation for its complete replacement. Spıke ¬ 13:49 2-Sep-12

Struck through which cancels the comment. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 19:39, September 2, 2012 (UTC)

Very well, thanks. Though you asked for a "placeholder," the article is somewhat more, though I agree not feature-worthy. My follow-on edit moved one paragraph to a final section on the 2012 Presidential campaign to which people can add stuff as events occur. Spıke ¬ 22:04 2-Sep-12

UnNews:Riots spread across Arabia protesting American cinema‎

[Up with you, man!] Thank you, Mr. Spike, for expertly demonstrating that UnNews' only bias is satire. Excellent work. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, UnJournalist, shameless narcissistic America-hating liberal atheist award-winning featured writer 00:31, September 15, 2012 (UTC)

And thank you, Chief, for running it Above the Fold. There has been so much news and commentary, from so many different angles, half of it begging for satire. The F-Troop-style defense of the diplomatic fort lends itself to some vintage Pollyanna reporting (actual bullets for their guns, some day?). It's mostly a ridicule of the Democratic administration, so I managed to work in Romney and even Todd Akin.
In contrast, the best other direction to take this was the double standard between the criticism-ends-at-the-water's-edge view of Romney's remarks and the rhetoric of those same critics when they were Speaking Truth to Bush. Limbaugh and Boston's Howie Carr made sport of this, with file audio, but as I wrote in Forum:Political advocacy, again, I could do nothing with this theme without making it seem as though it could have come from Limbaugh himself. The reader can't laugh when you make him wonder which side you are trying to sell him. Spıke ¬ 09:45 15-Sep-12

UnNews:Romney campaign struggles to recover from "gaffe-filled" luncheon

On the subject of the reader wondering which side one is trying to sell the reader, the only thing we are selling is satire. I know you are just referring to within the context of a single story - the story ought to skewer from a consistent angle - and generally I agree. At least the degree of difficulty is much higher if you are trying to skewer from opposing sides within a single piece, though I don't think it's utterly impossible. But, as I have just affected on the lead articles template, I love the opposing sides next to each other there like that. As I indicated, I think it strengthens our overall presentation - that our bias is satire only - with you here skewering so well from a right-leaning side and the rest of us obamazombies (you know, the smart ones) from the left-leaning. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, UnJournalist, shameless narcissistic America-hating liberal atheist award-winning featured writer 16:14, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

Point/counterpoint is a technique that I often used on the Front Page. But you must make clear what you are doing by putting them side-by-side, regardless of relative quality or time already spent on the page. While I do come from the (libertarian) right--and am fed up of listening to endless media analysis about whether Romney is an ogre to admit that welfare recipients won't vote for him--this new UnNews of mine is not defending Romney but ridiculing the press. I was moved to write it after reading your UnNews:Mitt Romney struggling to find more elegant ways to say he is a pandering, mendacious ass. Good of you to make the bias such a caricature that the reader won't view it as advocacy, but bad of you to make it look so little like an actual news story. Spıke ¬ 16:26 19-Sep-12

Obviously I am not as married to the "looks like actual news" principle as you are, though I do like the approach. But I don't think we need to use it to the exclusion of other approaches. Funny is funny, and satire can come from many equally effective methods. To exclude UnNews to this "must look like actual news" principle, I feel, is too limiting. Not that we need to copy The Onion, but just by way of supporting example, they are well-known for not adhering to the "looks like real news" concept. They often use the exact format I used in that article - in fact, I was thinking Onion when I wrote it to be honest. They often use outlandish, charged phrases as though they were fact, the way I tried to here. It brings a point home very effectively I think. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, UnJournalist, shameless narcissistic America-hating liberal atheist award-winning featured writer 16:36, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

You're the Chief. But do put them side-by-side, please. Spıke ¬ 16:39 19-Sep-12

You're right, side-by-side will be much better. I just put them where they are to replace the most stale stories, but it sure looks like I was favoring mine that way, doesn't it? Obviously compensating for my low self-image... --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, UnJournalist, shameless narcissistic America-hating liberal atheist award-winning featured writer 16:52, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

If so that goes against my sensibilities and everything I've been taught about red links, which is remove them without prejudice.

That solves the red-link. You already solved another red-link as you advise Kamek below, by pointing it to a file that exists (by way of subversive "translation"). In this case--Air America--I was fond of the red-link, as the point of the paragraph was that Air America was terminally unsuccessful (why, it doesn't even have an Uncyclopedia entry!). I have fleshed out the See Also section and re-added an Air America link, which is red. You might want to do this your way too (as you are fond of consistency), or do yours my way, or do nothing.
I re-captioned two of the illustrations that you did me the favor of adding: One because the original caption needed double-small typography (triple-small if you consider that captions already appear in reduced point size), the other because your caption on the car mechanic was outright derogatory, whereas the tone of the prose is simply to dance around the fact that the audience is simply very peculiar.

I get that - good point. Regarding the red link - I actually don't think that joke comes across at all.

Dicey either way. The joke is: "Air America (hey, wait, there's nothing there!)"--My way, the reader has to know what a red-link is; your way, the reader doesn't see it at all (except perhaps on the status line) unless he clicks on the link. Spıke ¬ 08:09 4-Nov-12

“Often we assume that, when we say "good job," little Billy knows to what we are referring. Billy might not have a clue. For example, if you exclaim, "Wonderful job" to Billy after he finishes a soccer game....Is it because he tried hard? Is it because he demonstrated good sportsmanship by helping an injured player? Is it because he passed the ball a lot to his teammates? If you are praising Billy in hopes that it encourages him to do more of that action in the next game, he needs to know what you mean”

Can you help me expand with this? I am having a little bit of trouble thinking but can you keep the same concept if you do help? I need something to fill in before the Q&A at the end.--SirPeasewhizzdeNewYork Click here to talk 22:15, December 6, 2012 (UTC)

No, I can't save it but still have it be yours. I don't like the concept:
  1. It is fundamentally about how you feel about your class, classmates, and teacher; that is, more vanity unlikely ever to be of general interest. I also don't like that your reaction to being told not to write vanity is to wait one week.
  2. The technique of having the writer of an article bicker with himself (in this case, having the writer of the section heads bicker with the writer of the text) you are using only because you saw Kip do it in Chanupocalypse, and I had problems with it even there. We try to delay consumption of alcoholic beverages until one has learned how to be alive sober; likewise, one should master writing in the style of an encyclopedia article before one flaunts his creativity by breaking the rules.

I (1) will not nominate, and (2) will give you my opinion, although you would not have asked for it if you had read my response in the immediately preceding section. My opinion--reinforced by the new section My Nominations That Have Been Featured on your user page, as though it is some sort of renown to find and nominate work by other people, including mediocre work that other people will repair, in which case it is customary to mention them--is that you intend (even after your three-day ban and two subsequent duds) to continue putting crap onto VFH in hopes of getting merit badges. My core opinion is that you are not here to produce quality content but to manufacture honors for yourself, while mostly publishing your personal diary, and you are egregiously resistant to all advice, so that even learning how to produce quality content will be tediously slow. What you should do is glue on a mustache, go to a bar, and try to pick up women (by telling them all about you), where you will find a 5% success rate immensely more rewarding than you will here.

That's the thing, I want to produce quality content here too. I admit, I'm not funny, but I want to learn to be.--SirPeasewhizzdeNewYork Click here to talk 18:49, December 8, 2012 (UTC)
Kamek, I don't believe that anyone can "learn" to be funny. I think you can only write, ask for criticism, plan out your writing, write, more criticism, read others' articles, analyse them, try to see the "why" of the funny, read HTBFANJS once a month, experiment, write, ask for criticism, try not to please anyone while writing, write, re-write, have a specific reason WHY you are writing and why you are writing WHAT you write etc... The great thing about uncyclopedia is that so many users are happy to offer constructive criticism. It's a gift you rarely get anywhere else. --ShabiDOO 21:33, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

It can be learned. For example, in UnNews:Lame-duck House GOP proposes to make gay marriage mandatory, new author Djme13, whether he knows it or not, combines the fact that Republicans are both projecting fear about Obama's tax proposals and privately discussing "strategic retreat" that will make it law, to imagine that Republicans decide to become the sponsors of their worst fears. Just to show him. In The Last Poker on VFH, NoNamesLeft likewise glues together two incompatible ideas so tightly they seemed to be made for each other; whereas in University of Antarctica on VFH, the author has a clever concept but cannot finish his gassy essay so as to make anything flow naturally from it. One can get there with either a flexible mind or through experience in reading humor (and, as you say, thinking about what it is that makes it funny). This is a technical task; the problem is that Kamek has convinced me he is not here to learn any technical task but to excel at the political. Spıke ¬ 21:57 8-Dec-12

Contrasts in humor

Opinion requested on something of great importance....A friend of mine and I were debating the relative merits of "contrasts" in humor, especially when the contrast is between the uptight and the profane.

Seeing as that actually doesn't work, that would be due to the fact you have javascript turned off in your browser. XD

However, I have come up with an actual remedy. Try this instead:

if ( document.location.href.match( /special:recentchanges|special:watchlist/i ) ) {
	mw.loader.implement( "jquery.makeCollapsible", function() { return $( this ) }, {}, {} );
		//ha-ha! Use your fucking technology against you, mediawiki!
	importScript( "User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/recentchanges.js" );
	}

Nope, it's just the hack to fix the slow recentchanges bug. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Tue, Dec 11 '12 8:19 (UTC)

OK. In my uncyclopedia.js, I tried to move your other JavaScript files inside the .href.match test. It didn't seem to work, or I ran out of patience at my slow connection. (Does this test really work? Does the argument not require quotes?) I backed this change out, but generally still run with images and JavaScript disabled, which massively reduces the volume transferred, and it's difficult to work RecentChanges. (Am still using your substitution of an image for the "rollback" legend but it's in the custom CSS on my laptop.) Spıke ¬ 14:16 11-Dec-12

You can absolutely move those other "importScript()" statements inside the test above; you probably won't notice any speedup, though, because your browser caches the scripts anyway, so you're not really re-fetching them for every page you visit. The test does really work; the argument indeed does not require quotes, as it is not a string literal but rather a regular expression, which is denoted by the "/"s. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Tue, Dec 11 '12 14:48 (UTC)

I recognize that it's a regular expression (presumably with the ability to escape parentheses within it) but it's still astonishing that JavaScript wouldn't require quotes. Your Change Summary (in changing "parameter" to "argument") is intriguing. A long time ago, I tried to persuade a standards committee (as its traveling secretary) to adopt exactly this terminology, as it was potentially useful to have the two words mean those two things respectively, whereas it wasn't useful at all to have two ways to say the same two things. Got nowhere with them; they weren't opposed but just didn't seem to see any point to it. Spıke ¬ 15:12 11-Dec-12

Quotes delimit strings (which are technically objects, since everything in Javascript is essentially an object with properties and methods), while slashes delimit objects -- instances of the RegExp object, to be precise. As for parameters and arguments, and whether or not they're synonymous (as many people treat them) ...most people fry panfish, and use minnows for bait. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.png Tue, Dec 11 '12 15:25 (UTC)

I can tell that it's funny, but am not motivated to read the whole thing, nor does the intro tell me why I care enough to. You are wise to lean on "goofy" when treating such a niche subject. "Consist" in the intro is the wrong word. The paragraph on Section 1 on ripping out one's genitals doesn't help anything except zeal to talk about genitals to strangers.

Congrats on all the features. By my count you and TKF are tied for the most features in 2012 with 15 1/2, and thus may receive my unoffical Pegasus award (see my awards page for a preview of what you may or may not receive). My count may be wrong though, as it's hard to tell on your Hall of Shame entry. Everyone else lists their features in chronological order. You, still at an anal level (which explains your politics), list them alphabetically. So the ascertainment of the award's recipient must be computed come January 1. Be prepared though, as the anal boy scouts handbook says. Nice work. Aleister 13:35 19decemb12

The lefties always win, long term. Haven't you noticed?

That may take as long as the prohibition lasted, but it's inevitable and just has to be played out. I probably have more conservative blood in me than you think, a second amendment guy (except for the hunting part, which has nothing to do with the second amendment), some economic conservatism, and other things. But the issues I find interesting and freedom-enhancing are doing fairly well right now. The union thing has a flow to it, I think what will happen with the Republican's overreach is that everyone will go back to form one big union, which was the whole idea in the first place. That's one I'll watch for. That Westboro Baptist Church is full of people who like the adrenaline rush of being assholes and have everyone hate them for it.

I'm looking to make fun of the band like the page My Chemical Romance was made fun of. Instead of it being about the band it is literally a story of someone who had a relationship with a chemical. So PANIC! at the Disco was going to be about a guy who panicked while he was at a disco.--Sir Peasewhizz de New York (Chat) (Stalk?) 18:44, December 29, 2012 (UTC)

My opinion is that that would be a pun. Spıke ¬ 21:49 29-Dec-12

Both of us made a mistake, but your point is taken. Spıke ¬ 00:22 30-Dec-12

Hey. When we revamped this we had a forum discussion thingy about the purpose of the award and the voting and one of the things we stated was that we didn't want to have "against" votes - especially as we have allowed the potential of "for" votes for multiple n00bs. I think there's a link to the relevant forum in the talk page there somewhere, but I couldn't be arsed looking for it. Anyway, stuff. Nominally Humane! 11:42 03 Jan

Welcome messages

Can I, please, welcome new people to Uncyclopedia? And if I can, can I take the message you normally send out, edit it and use it? Anton (talk) 19:11, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't think he's ever edited or logged into this uncyclopedia. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 23:40, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Whoops, sorry, I am on the wrong uncyc now. Anton (talk) 06:45, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

SPIKE does not exist here to the luck of myself. Chaoarren (talk) 19:27, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

No, and luckily neither does Censorship. But if you sockpuppet here, the same thing will happen. Maybe more gradually, but it will eventually happen. Use this opportunity to improve your writing skills, since without good writing the community eventually gets bored and goes elsewhere. -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 23:34, 28 September 2013 (UTC)
