Why isn't there an edit link on the main page anymore? --User:Nintendorulez 18:40, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Probably to discourage newcomers from editing. - Sikon 04:50, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Damn...--HPSig.PNGHP talk 03:08, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Because it's used only for links to real UnNews articles now...no more random blurbs, which I sort of miss. —rc (t) 03:18, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Maybe we could make a UnNewsflash for that?--Quira 08:01, 21 September 2006 (UTC)
    • I'm glad I'm not the only one who liked the way you dind't need a full several paragraphs to go with your headliner. Some gags just can't be carried on past a oneliner, and UnNews was perfect for that. --User:Nintendorulez 21:27, 17 December 2006 (UTC)
There's still Template:UnNews Other Headlines for those, which show up at UnNews' main page.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 22:34, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Restrict this template?[edit source]

Shouldn't this template be protected from editing by non-admins? It's shown on the front page, so only well-formed and humourous stories chosen by the news team should be added to it. Not shitty stories like this one, which anyone can add. 20:32, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

I disagree. There has been very little vandalism of this template and it's hard to find by noobies. It would be very annoying for admins to constantly have to review new stories and add them. And I think it would create a lot of controversy based on what stories they do and don't pick. --Composure1 21:32, 18 January 2007 (UTC)

Edit[edit source]

I'm new to this whole Unnews thing and I've added my article to the list. If there's any problems with what I've done feel free to revert my changes! --Themuppetshow 21:12, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Magical 15[edit source]

yeah so you might be able to see a {{15}} at the end of the unnews section. It appeared after I added my article, so it likely was my fault, but I can't locate the line of code that is making it appear. If someone who is better with this kind of thing than me would like to have a go, you're more than welcome.--Benny Goodman 06:11, 1 March 2007 (UTC)

how do i add my news to the list?[edit source]

i have no clue how to add my news to the list. im new to UnNews edit:woopsies!erm pay no attention to this

Thumbnail images[edit source]

Just curious as to the technical reason for why thumbnail images are not allowed on this page. --Composure1 21:20, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Cuz they are not teh pretti? --THINKER 21:21, 25 January 2008 (UTC)
Basically, yeah. Thumbnail images produce that ugly frame around the image, which in turn messes with the formatting and would probably do something God-awful to the IE-displayed Main Page. Plus, the only time to really use thumbnails is if you need to caption it, which you shouldn't.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 02:31, 26 January 2008 (UTC)
And, if you add a caption without the thumb, it because a hover-over caption. I've always found those rather humorous in that position. --THINKER 04:08, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Restricted Template[edit source]

So what's the basis for who gets to add articles to the main page now? It's clearly restricted for me. I'm just curious to see if somebody's picking these articles, or if there's some sort of process for it. --Mrmonkey72 23:55, 22 July 2008 (UTC)

Wait a few days, and try again. It's locked for "new" users... MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 00:56, Jul 23
Alright, thanks --Mrmonkey72 01:02, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Blurb[edit source]

Can I get this article published in teh un news? Worlds tallest one legged man loses leg, and Guiness World Record. Thanks. Xerocs 05:06, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Umm, it would help if you posted a link to the article. I'm not entirely sure where to find it based on what you typed. Tinymasaru.gifpillow talk 20:32, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Not working[edit source]

I edited in my article, its appearing on the main page for me but for some reason no one else can see it. Any idea why? That Guy Behind You 02:36, 20 February 2009 (UTC)

The people you asked have an old version cached? --monika 02:37, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
You mean this is an old version or I edited the wrong thing? That Guy Behind You 02:47, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
I mean on your friends' computers, there is an old version. If they push F5 hard enough or wait long enough, it'll fix itself. --monika 02:59, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
They tried, it didn't work. It does show up when I show them the template, but not the main page. Does it appear for you on the main page? That Guy Behind You 03:53, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
Ah, in that case, the server has a cached version of the main page. It'll right itself. --[[Us

Problem[edit source]

I cannot edit this page. May I ask why? Staircase CUNt 02:40, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

Add request[edit source]

I understand if you want to protect this from being edited by just anyone. That being said, is it possible for one of you who can edit this add this story for me please? UnNews:Cat arrested for plan to assassinate the President If it sucks too much, I understand. Thanks for the consideration. Larrythefunkyferret 08:11, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

However[edit source]

Maybe caption "Gary Kirsten discovers sex" would be better than that I wrote? I'm not sure tho. Polisz.jpgSir Ptok-BentonicznyPisz tutaj KUN 11:30, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

The Rules[edit source]

Hello, What's the rules now about adding articles to this thing? Are we expected to add our own stuff or expected not to? mAttlobster. (hello) 11:23, September 21, 2011 (UTC)

Well, you can add it yourself if you are pretty sure it is good, no problem. Do as you wish. Talk Mattsnow 13:48, October 2, 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, User:GlobalTourniquet told me recently *not* to do that. Am I to understand that he's changed your policy in the month and a half since he became editor? Rei (talk) 13:00, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
I never read this comment - I was going by what it says on the edit page. If I changed the policy, I guess I changed it back without realizing it. Anyway I always waited and allowed the editor to add mine, it seemed a reasonable thing to me. As the current editor I assume full responsibility for the content, but OK - how about this? If you want to add your own, sure - but one, be sure to follow the correct format, and two, I'll of course reserve the right to be responsible for the content. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, UnJournalist, shameless narcissistic America-hating liberal atheist award-winning featured writer 16:00, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable. And I know there's sort of a bind in that we don't want random garbage ending up on the front page. I'll do my best to not burden you in that regard.  :) - Rei (talk) 16:08, September 27, 2012 (UTC)

The rules (2 years later)[edit source]

So can I just add my UnNews in or do I need some sort of confirmation that it isn't entirely shite first? - B@NZai k!tten BANZAI! (Meow?)B 16:42, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

The first one. It's fiddly at first though, so make sure you preview, preview, preview to check. Leverage (talk) 17:37, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

"(pictured)" used twice[edit source]

The (pictured) label is used twice at the moment, appearing next to "Martin Scorsese discovers Britney Spears Email song" and "Writers strike ENDS!!!" Hi, I'm a guy who owns Mario Party 8 for the Wii. Talk to me here. Bye. 13:23, 24 October 2023 (UTC)
