The competition[edit source]

What is the Poo Lit Surprise?[edit source]

Poo Lit Surprise Logo.png

A writing competition held on Uncyclopedia for fame, glory, and prestige. It is designed to jump-start writing quality at Uncyclopedia. After the previous (insert number here) competitions, a significant number of featured articles for the following month(s) were from the PLS, and it could be argued that the overall quality of featured articles increased.

Who can enter and what are the rules?[edit source]

All registered members of Uncyclopedia are encouraged to enter, though a few conditions and limitations apply. If a User makes an entry, they are barred from Judging that portion of the competition. (See here for the list of judges).

You may enter only once for each category (for which you are eligible; one article per category per person). An article may only be entered in one category, and it must fit within the requirements of a particular category. You may not change three words and the title of an article to make it eligible for another category; such behavior will result in both articles being disqualified. Additionally, in previous competitions, collaborations were permitted. However, due to a lack of collaboration submissions and complicating rules, collaborations are no longer permitted.

Articles created prior to the competition cannot be submitted. Also, no plagiarism. Should we discover your work is not original, you will be disqualified. Using resources such as the Reefer Desk, Image Request, or Pee Review is forbidden. Users may, however, use Vital, Uncyclopedia:The Creative Process, Category:Rewrite, Special:Wantedpages, Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles and/or Inspire an Article to help get ideas.

When is the PLS going to be held?[edit source]

  • From June 1st - June 21st, entries will be accepted.
  • From June 22nd - June 29th, entries will be locked and judged.
  • From June 30th - July 3rd, winners will be announced, articles will be moved into the mainspace, and all entries will be unlocked.
  • July 4th ― we will all go play Shinty.

(n.b.: all times are to be measured by UTC, and all phases of the contest end at midnight on the specified day; entries may be accepted at the discretion of Cassie)

Where should I put my entry?[edit source]

The article should be placed on your own userspace files, which are stored in the File namespace. Between June 1st - June 21st, you should post a link to your article in the entry section below and sign as you would a forum post or vote.

If you're a paranoid, or afflicted with OCD, or just want to tell people to shove off until after the PLS, add {{PLS-WIP}} to your entry.

Trousers or Kilts?[edit source]

Kilts please.
