Forum? What happened to Village Dump?  Special:Contribs/Sir Peasewhizz Sir Peasewhizz ... Biblio . HOS . Awards 02:13 7.02.13

Nothing. A bunch of people saw you coming back, and ran for it. It was a bad time for everyone. Lost a lot of good men. A bunch of our farmers too. Led to some food shortages, but.... Ah! Who wants to talk about the past anyway? The Woodburninator Wood burning.gif Minimal Effort  02:49, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I took a dump on it. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 02:49, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
It's summer time so everybody's out having lots of sex and doing lots of drugs. I barely had time to post this in between all the sex and drugs. Man, those sex and drugs are delicious. -RAHB 04:14, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

Seriously

What the fuck? This place looks deader than an armadillo on the interstate highway. Is this normal for UnSummertime? I mean, even with the PLS giving away prize money, it took two fucking months to complete it. The last new UnNews article was on June 23. The current featured article is a year listcruft. Frankly, I don't care how awesome 1993 was or how well written the article is. We're featuring years now. Honestly, when was the last time we did that?

The rest of the articles on VFH? Mostly pathetic. Two shoe-ins are another year (in which I was born) and the sandlot. The SANDLOT!!! Come on, guys. At least come up with new ways for Mr-ex777 to be brutally sodomized.

I even nominated VFD to gain some interest in that page, but despite my pleas, absolutely no one (except Denza, the IRC martyr) has even bothered with all the crap I spammed. If you're not going to write articles, you can at least do the bare minimum by annihilating crap with a simple vote.

Last winter, everyone was whining about how Uncyclopedia was decaying, and I was the one telling you to get back to work and stop the alarmist freaking out. Now? I am the one whining, and it seems like I'm alone. Everyone else is either too apathetic at this point or nonexistent.

I hate to mimic the late TKF and pronounce us dead in the water. I'm hoping this is merely another rut. Perhaps we need some kind of rush of adrenaline, like the boom when we exiled from Wikia.

Let's fork again! -- Style Oranssiviiva.jpg Guide 06:13, 7 July 2013 (UTC)
I mean... we are kind of dead. I blame current tastes. I can't get my friends or family to really read anything I write on here. (And they are better off for it, to be sure.) People don't want to read long articles on the internet anymore. It's a twitter-based thing now. Two sentence jokes. Videos. Things that you don't have to think about when you view them. How many unregistered users even come on here to vandalize/eventually become real users anymore? That's the biggest problem. Users go all the time. Retire, or vacation or whatever. The biggest problem is that in the last year or two, we haven't been getting new users to replace them. If we had a good way to drum up new users, it would be the biggest help. So... you know... any ideas? The Woodburninator Wood burning.gif Minimal Effort  18:28, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Well, I am known in teh wikiaz for never producing any content save the vocaloid page, but always undoing vandals, posting to BP and voting. And I just feel that some low quality injokes are fine, but the low quality random crap that is on vfd doesn't belong here, it belongs in Encyclopedia Dramatica. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510 Insight into the mind of an aspergian: 18:43, 2 July 2013 (UTC)(Henceforth UncycloWikia is now to be known as "Teh Wikiaz" cuz RAHB said it like that once (Check the block logs)(Also, I'm known as the IRC martyr? Sweet!))

just poppin in real quick to hi-five Woody for so succinctly describing the hopeless death knell and also be like "yeah sorry guys, but this site has just fallen so far behind in tastes." perfecting what already exists and keeping this as some sort of "FINAL EDITION" preserved tomb might actually be the best course of action at this point for y'all. and i'm still dead, just really bored and kind of wanting to see what's up. oh hey, cool, someone nominated 1989! radical. -- TKF is still dead 22:13, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

plus, so much of this site is still archaeic as fuck. searching still breaks and bends and can't be sorted in any very helpful way, and also probably other stuff too that i have not noticed because i've only been here for a minute and am about to go again. but yeah, anyone who's still around should probably band together and start yet another even better website. like McSweeney's, or something. -- TKF Blah Blah Huge Dick 22:17, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
FU TKF -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 22:20, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
SMD ZB. Also I'm gonna keep going for a little bit. The big offering of Uncyc to 99% of people is just stuff to read, which has always made its actual community more janitorial and incidental in nature, especially once you hit the point of already having so many articles. A big, big mental restructuring might be necessary, realizing that you might as well just build on what you have because, with the current human resources, there is only so much more you can do when you set your sights only on expansion. -- FTKFKRKTF 22:22, 2 July 2013 (UTC)

I think one of the main problems is that the site hasn't been able to rebuild its user base from the move. We might see more activity if Uncyclopedia can actively attract new editors or reach out to older users to rejoin the site (at least on a semi-active basis). I've kept a list of ideas related to this if anyone's interested.

I may have mentioned this already but Uncyclopedia may want to consider expanding into other mediums via YouTube and other social media websites. YouTube especially has a lot of potential to bring in a whole new audience. Things like flash animation, music videos, podcasts, short videos, and even a spoof news segment are all possibilities (Mhaille made a really neat flash video a few years ago). I'm sure there are plenty of readers that may be interested in helping out. Personally, I'd love to see this UnTunes as a music video. MadMax (talk) 05:15, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Things...

One primary reason why this place is losing old editors is the janitorial shit which needs to be done on a daily basis almost in order to keep this place tidy. It's 100% the most boring and thankless job on the internet and people almost feel obligated to do it rather than write content. Most of these tasks could be done by bots almost and on other sites like wikipedia probably are. The issue being we don't have someone with the time to write the many maintenance scripts to make maintenance as close to redundant as we possibly could. Archiving is boring, going through backlogs is boring, yadda yadda you get the idea. rant over. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 06:10, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

I have nothing to do till further notice. If you need me to clean up artickal spelung, or FerMating, I can do that. Give me a list of articles to clean, and I can do that, unless one of you fuckers makes me ragequit. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510 Insight into the mind of an aspergian: 07:53, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
That's not really how maintenance works. Obviously we need people to help maintain the site, but it is nobody's responsibility to provide you with a list of pages to clean. Go find the pages on your own, it's not really that hard. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 15:32, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Alright then. MegaPleb Dexter111344 Complain here 01:23, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

My two cents.

Hi, as a new member to Uncyclopedia I felt compelled by the writing community that existed here; sure some member's sense of humor was better than others but there was one thing they shared the most, which was a love for writing. After being a member for a few months, I can tell that it's dead, not creatively dead but dead in the sense of activity. I was expecting a whirlpool of contributions and inspirations coming from this sites split off of Wikia, a community hungry to have their work reviewed, judged and improved on and maybe there's still a time of that. The heart and soul of Uncyclopedia has always been it's contributors from far and wide, putting up different points of humor, trying to build what is the funniest thing here and I've done a small insignificant amount of research to believe that there were creative juices flowing that made the place feel oh so great.

I can review other people's work but I want to be surrounded by other people reviewing articles as well. If it's just one person doing Pee Reviews than what's the purpose in even getting one? I'm just a guy trying to get betterment for his work in the form of opinion but it seems like the most opinionated people ain't here; hell my UnReviews:Jurassic Park hasn't gotten enough reviews yet. I want to be a member, I want to be the guy who contributes the most and has consistently funny articles but it seems like there's barely any motive for me to do anything. VFD and VFH has a few people going on but I feel like more people need to search through the rubble to find treasures of crap or gold that they can nominate for VFD and VFH, it get's boring when you keep on trying to find articles that are featurable.

No one person can run Uncyclopedia all by himself, there has to be a bond between the community; one that is for the betterment of this site and it's sister projects as well. We need to pump juices into projects such as UnReviews and UnVoyage and show that these projects can stand out on their own. I know I may expect an answer that says that the community is behind this site but we need to amp that 110% I need to see that there's an active community willing to commit to the big picture. In fact this is the main reason why I'm taking a break from this site, not enough activity, not enough action and work that goes unnoticed. This may change if I get back and read alot of books to improve my grammar but at this point, it's unlikely.

So come on Uncyclopedia, be alive damnit. RedHot (talk) 03:30, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Hey Redhot, even though I am a sporadic member at best, I do see where you're coming from. As far as things like PeeReview goes - I keep forgetting about it - Something seems very clunky about the layout and to be honest I didn't realise that many people used it.... my article is still third from the top in the list and I wrote that ages ago, and I don't really even care about getting it reviewed any more.... So that just seems strange.

Maybe there just needs to be a bit of a rethink to the layout of the front page? - It seems that UnNews and VFH gets all the attention and the "today's featured picture" seems to be enormous...

Anyway i know what you mean about the staleness, but I'm afraid i can't help much - I'm too busy IRL. Strainj 1 . . . . TALK 03:46, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Solutions

  • Pee: do what Kippy suggested a few months ago and just make a forum with a link to your article. You'll get a quick pee from me at least. Less bureaucratic, shit gets done, activity is resumed.
  • otherwise, write an article and activity is resumed.
  • lack of ideas? I suggest you go to USER:Multiliteralist/SoS and see if you don't want to set up something with a connection to something else. This is, in my view, a good way to get some community feeling to things. Questions about SoS? Ask away - but it's basically a free-for-all with the aim of making up funny shit with connections to other funny shit. No rules whatsoever; just a different idea board from stuff like the requested articles thing. Large scale collaboration with 16.000 open ends per minute.
  • VFH: just do what I suggested ages ago and abandon the direct democracy shit. Nominate and vote for a few people to take turns and select from a list where anyone can suggest articles. Less cumbersome, less bickering, activity is resumed.
  • want to complain about inactivity? Knock yourself out.

I say we put that Anton Fellow to use. He is an accomplished writer. Also, we need more ideas. I'm just here for edit patrolling and my few articles, plus editing vocaloid. So go away. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510 Insight into the mind of an aspergian: 19:28, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

Zombiebaron makes a new header

Since my attempt to derail this thread and make it into a silly youtube thread has obviously failed (seriously wtf) I guess I should throw in my actual opinion on this: please stop making forums about how inactive the site is. It is a waste of everybody's time and is extremely bad for everyone's morale. Yes, it is true that we are at an all time low in activity, but it is also summertime, our annual slow season. Just go do something. If you wanna talk to other Uncyclopedians and get feedback on stuff come on IRC. Sitting around trying to "solve" this "problem" is the problem. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 22:13, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

No my good sir. We have far too less forums describing our inactivity. Anyhow, IRC is too underutilized. --The Shield of Azunai DSA510 Insight into the mind of an aspergian: 23:36, 7 July 2013 (UTC)

I just need to finish User:Llwy-ar-lawr/43

and move it to mainspace. Maybe that will help something. I have been putting that off too long. I also have to go start some forums. And vote on stuff.

Seriously though, I am strongly opposed to another fork. Do we really need three Uncyclopedias? Two is more than enough as it is. If we execute a fork we will divide the community further, and is that a good thing? Maybe we should all just get back together and get the Uncyclowikians to move here or something. – Llwy-ar-lawr (talkcontribslogs) Uncyclopedia is a community site that anyone can contribute to.
