Note to Ambassadors:

  • There is now an added Languages Discussion section above the submissions section. Here your monkeys users can work together to discuss specific language translations. Russian and English have been started, you can start other ones as you wish.
  • If you want to have more direct relations with another Uncyclopedia (apart from the English), feel free contact one of the listed ambassadors and you can try to make a contact, rather than having to go through England for these matters.
  • Feel free to customise your language's sections/pages. Add cliched pictures or stereotypes if you like.

First Meeting Concluded[edit source]

The Statements[edit source]

  • Due to some reasons, we'll have to do something with Czechs. Maybe carpet bombing or some nuclear-involving agenda.
  • A Logo of the Office is also required. The resolution is to base it on the UN's one.
  • We have to create the Embassies' Map, i.e. set up the links to the Foreign Embassies on the main page of FO.
  • Also, RECRUITMENT! (© All Ambassadors) That means we have to establish contact with Uncy's main page and set up a link there too.
    • It will be much better if such links are on the main page of every Uncy, not just English one.

(Stated by all, recorded by Praet. Long live the Empire!)

The Discussion[edit source]

I think we may say that this first meeting was a great success. A lot of important countries were represented and good decisions were made. I look forward to the next one. Same time, same place? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 20:27, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

I assume that everybody is busy on workweek. So, we'll have to gather on next weekend. Same time, same place. Don't forget the beer!Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 21:12, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah i think it went very well, we concluded a lot, and most importantly we have decided to entice the Czechs into the deal with very large promises of "FREE PIVO", if they don't comply, we will call them nasty names. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 21:55, November 21, 2009 (UTC)
It's our first Un General Assembly. That's wonderful. But is it too frequent to gather weekly?--SunnyChow 04:10, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

I just want to advise that who had spoken in the chat (Hans Magnus) was a fake.--Wiki it.png Magnus Wiki it.png Come here 00:27, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Um, are you serious? Seems like a strange way for someone to spend their evening without obvious gain... So I take it you're not from Bologna? --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 01:06, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
Was it a legal fake or we have to hunt somebody down? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 01:13, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
I'm not from Bologna and i'm not a shitty graphic.
@Praetorian: Legal fake?
At the moment I'm advising all my "mates" of Nonciclopedia.--Wiki it.png Magnus Wiki it.png

Come here 08:59, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Wow! Should we have some secret signs? Seriously, what can we do about the impostor?--SunnyChow 09:34, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

I mean if it was a fake approved by you or not. Now I see that it wasn't. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 10:37, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Wow, we have a spy in our ranks, I blame the Czechs! :D But seriously, who was it? --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 11:25, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
It clearly wasn't malicious (apart from the one comment about MFH hating him), I assume the guy was just bored and had nothing to do. He actually made some decent contributions iirc, it'd just be good to know who it really was. Also we definitely need more girls, beer and food for next time (in descending order of priority). This is the job of Vassilliana, Czech Republic, and US-English respectively. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 11:55, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

(cough) (cough) I really can't attend this time. I will be in camp. And if you find a guy named SunnyChow in next meeting ... well... you know what to do.--SunnyChow 11:45, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
Oh yes. We will hunt them down! By the way, I've fallen ill. But I'm going to attend, so any spies will be banned. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 10:48, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
Certainly we will, but it seems the most popular opinion so far is to consider all Foreign Office policies as lame and invade Sudetenland... --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 17:15, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
We'll send there those who voted for it. For the meantime we'll hold the meeting. Two men are going to crush Společné síly. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 11:10, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Logos[edit source]

FO logos.png

As I was busy this week, I drew only two versions of the logo of FO, which is not very satisfying.--SunnyChow 15:45, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Does FO need an office lady?--SunnyChow 15:53, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Have you got any suggestions? :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 18:19, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
Uhm, is the next meeting in Jabber Room UFO or Foreign Office of Uncyclopedia? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 21:30, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
The room is called The Foreign Office of Uncyclopedia (the.foreign.office on chat.jabberfr.org). The room UFO is illegal :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 09:03, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
That logo on the right, that logo sounds on the UnNews logo. Quality is bad, 'cause it's made with Paint and MS Word 2007. R7 (NL)
Ya, made another one. Here. R7 (NL)
Funny. I like the legend :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 10:15, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

Regarding Translations to English[edit source]

Hey all, since a few English Uncyclopedians have expressed doubts over the quality of some work translated from your barbaric foreign tongues to God's own English, I have decided that all translations by people whose English is less than fluent (or close to) should be placed in "The Waiting Room" until it is up to adequate standards. So please always translate articles to English with this prefix:

[[ Uncyclopedia:Foreign Office/TWR/<PAGE NAME> ]]

Please also write the article and its link on the TWR page (which I will set up ASAP). There will be a choice of two templates to add to the top of the page (which I hope you reference which you chose in the list). These will be:

  1. Anglification - for pages that contain cultural references that need to be loosely translated into something more understandable to the English readers.
  2. Combover - for pages that are universally understandable, but need to be checked for grammar, spelling etc....

You can, of course, use both templates if you imagine there will be a problem with both.

Don't worry about it too much at the moment, I'll get it all set up by the next meeting.

--El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 13:07, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

What about Roemenie and other already publicated articles? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 14:03, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
Don't worry about ones already translated, unless you personally think they need to be checked. This is just for the future. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 14:05, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Hahaha, well, um, this is embarrassing... --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 14:20, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
I especially liked it when I and Sealand were connected at the same time :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 14:46, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
This is it?!!!--SunnyChow 16:15, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
I'm afraid I won't be available on any meeting, as it will ALWAYS HAPPEN when I'll be at work (until 21h, GMT). Not that this is something important (I'm lying, no, I'm not... grrr) Fire_Wolf_br Cookies? 00:57, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
Uh, the joke's on us, I believe. Let's try to get some posts in, next time. Maybe we should meet twice a week. -_-" | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 14:43, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
It's not of the utmost importance I guess, but perhaps I should send out messages again as people seem to have forgotten. I think twice weekly is pushing it, I just didn't realise how many people (including myself) would forget about it. Also the regulars need to be assigned roles with groovy names and stuff so that we can all share the responsibility of spreading the Good Word of the Foreign Office to the other uncyclopedias --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 15:30, November 30, 2009 (UTC)
Damn. Forgot to come. However. When is next meeting? R7 (NL)
Saturday evening again. Anyway, nice logo you made. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 19:20, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Meditation Regarding the Nature, Substance and Consequences of the Fabled "Third Meeting"[edit source]

Good evening/night/morning/afternoon all, I have been instructed by the Tsar of Absurdopedia to pass on the following information regarding yesterday's meeting (which i was sadly unable to make):

  1. Meetings are no longer obligatory. I shall call for a meeting in times of urgent necessity or religious fervour (such as that might happen following further hostilities from our Czech brethren), but as a general rule, feel free to pop by the chatroom whenever you wish for a chat. Someone will (probably) be there. 7pm on a Saturday remains the fashionable time (jazz nights) to meet up, but no pressure, it's just for minor chat and democratically mulling over such things as UFO logos, inter-uncyc projects. Anyone is welcome. When we call for a proper obligatory meeting, I will message you all personally (this is like to be once a month).
  2. The Dutch contingent has decided to create a newspaper in which news of the meetings and the general progress of the Foreign Office can be reflected. I, for one, believe this to be an excellent way of recorded the progress of the Foreign Office in stages (we can, for example, have a column devoted to the articles that have been translated that week/fortnight, and the best translators... or a spotlight on some lesser known article writers from the various Uncyclopedias).

Any response and clarification on the matters is very very welcome indeed, especially from Lars, Roye, or Praetorian, who were present at the meeting. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 19:40, December 6, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, well, the newspaper idea was sort made assuming that the meetings would remain, but oh well. I could still do some propaganda for the Oncyclopedia. >:-) L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 06:37, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
The Tsar of Absurdopedia ))) I'm just a mere administrator, not even a bureaucrat, but thank you. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 08:28, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
This calls for a revolution then Praeto, down with the Tsar! Quick, someone make some dynamic banners to support our cause! Also, the meetings will remain, but I will only make a big deal about them if we decide to make a big deal about them beforehand, because I imagine most of the time not a lot interesting will go on, and people might stop being interested in the project entirely. Also I think the newspaper idea would actually strengthen the cause and sustain more interest from our various ambassadors. It seems we no longer have Woman in our ranks. How we get Woman back? --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 16:42, December 7, 2009 (UTC)
She refused to work on us collaborate with us? Ah well. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 12:44, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
Worse, I think she might have been a Czech double agent... o_o
Do we have enough things to talk about to call for a meeting this weekend which will involve the traditional invites? --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 15:27, December 8, 2009 (UTC)
So... I hope everyone here is enjoying whatever you have to enjoy... Our embassy is already working, everyone on our uncy have a list of the english, german, french, italian, russian and spanish uncys to translate to our uncy and vice-versa. We're planning to do a few more advertising (not too much, as we're already overloaded of projects). Also, I'll be using that FOlogotje.png for now, np? I hope so =) Fire_Wolf_br Cookies? 12:06, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
Daadaadaadaaaaa...ya. Newspaper...we have name, right? What was the name again? I can't remember...The FO Times? The Paragraph? Logo... ya, font... ya. O, you don't. Old English Text MT or else? Where am i talking about...i have some textes fonts for the logo from Disney to Coca Cola...... R7 (NL)
According to the Logs, the name was The Foreign Times. Just like some pretty colonial daily, eh? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 20:36, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
Okay, so when is the first issue of the Foreign Times? By the way, I've logged onto the Necyklopedia. I guess I'll post the Foreign Times on my User Page over there. Also, I've logged onto the Kengencyclopedia, the Lëtzebuerg Uncyc. Maybe, some inFO will also revive the place. See y'all at the meeting! | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 15:07, December 26, 2009 (UTC)
Nice work, apologies for inactivity, when is the next meeting? Next Saturday? --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 01:08, December 28, 2009 (UTC)
Next meeting? I see...well, something with the newspaper...choose. I made three... R7 (NL)
NY-Times text
Modern text
Old text
First one plz --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 14:56, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
NY-Times is third, by the way, but with spacing. I like those Auld-English fonts :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 17:14, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry, I meant the content of the first, the style of the third :) --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 18:46, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
The name of the font is not right. Third one was "Old English Text". R7 (NL)

R7 (NL)

I second this. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 19:45, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

IMPORTANT[edit source]

This is Fire_Wolf_br, I wish that all Ambassadors go here, just to keep updated on the exit of the Bureaucrat Kohl, due to problems. Also, I ask you to calm down, as there are people who considers it as a coup-d'etat, and others as "something which needed to be done". This is a long text, so please read everything, if possible. Thanks 16:09, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

I've read it. I have nothing to say about it. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 16:54, January 9, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for your feedback, Lars. 17:08, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

BELANGRIJK[edit source]

See here for an Oncyclopedia statement regarding the staus of the project. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 09:19, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Did anyone read this? Please do and notify you read it. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 21:27, January 15, 2010 (UTC)
I read it, I'm also going to do this... --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 15:29, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

ROLE CALL[edit source]

Can all members of the Foreign Office please write their signature in the following list to show that they check this page at least once a month, thank you. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 15:29, January 16, 2010 (UTC)

Also, another important thing to note is that I no longer am, or actually never was, the Dutch-Flemish Ambassador. The Ambassador, which is stationed in Mounts, Mons, and Bergen, is called Cartoonist Henning. He should be contacted in case of any dispute or other political matter. I am here to translate, only to translate and for nothing but translate. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 16:16, January 16, 2010 (UTC)
hello everyone and happy new year! it's been a long time to visit you but it's obvious i had serioys bussiness to do (vacation,vacation,vacation and a promotion to bureaucrat) but at last i'm here! ---sn00by from Greece
Any consequences? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 08:40, February 3, 2010 (UTC)
hmmm,i can't recall of any (too much drinking causes amnesia) :P---sn00by

Roemenie[edit source]

To all Ambassadors,

As you may or may not know, the Dutch article Roemenië was translated to Roemenie (alias “The Report from Antwerp(en)”) in September. I have had the article reviewed and I have asked El Sid to check on the spelling and wording.
Finally, maybe late February or March, I am going to nominate it for VFH. Of course, I will not nominate an unfinished product, nor will I rush the preparations, so if I get delayed, it will take longer for the article to be featured.
Of course, I can in no way force you to vote for the article once it is up for VFH. But apart from the personal appreciation, I personally think it would be a great way to show the Uncyclopedia and other Uncycs that the Foreign Office Project is going strong.
This way, we can encourage writers to join the FO Project, we may be able to convince the Désencyclopédiens that foreign articles are not dangerous, and so the possible (quasi-)feature will greatly help the Foreign Office Project.

Therefore, my foreign colleagues, I would like to ask you to help me getting Roemenie, “The Report from Antwerp”, featured. I would really appreciate any suggestion on the talk page. Of course, a vote would also help, although I do not want any vote from people who did not have a look at the article; your vote can be friendly, but not mindless.

Apart from that, I would also like to encourage you to keep the Foreign Office alive. Please keep translating and keep an eye on the other Uncycs. I visit here every day and man alive, am I waiting for someone to want a Dutch article translated.
I also want to thank some people. First of all, I want to thank MFH and Ptok from Italy and Poland, for giving me the info needed to make my translations; Own Goal is still under construction. Secondly, I want to thank Faith, Roy, and Henning. Faith is right now doing her (right?) best on “La blague dangereuse”, Roy is just an awesome writer; mass production at its best! And of course Henning, who, despite this stubborn Dutch guy showing his face wrong place wrong time, appearantly trusts me as a future, might want to stress that, representative for the Oncyclopedia. Finally, I want to thank El Sid for contacting me about this FO Project starting up, which is now hopefully just taking a break before growing into a vast inter-Uncyclopedian project.

Now go and translate something, you foreign buggers! Don't make me do another one of these FD Roosevelt speeches! (New Deal for the win!) Put a sock in it, Frank!

Awaiting the Kingdom FOes,
Lars “Danzegger”,
Chief Translator of the Oncyclopedia

UnDictionary[edit source]

D. G. Neree, a burocrat on the Oncyclopedia came to me with a suggestion. He thinks we should also translate UnDictionary articles.
Also, he would like to do things for the Foreign Office, but he can't due to his permaban. Is some sort of probation possible? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 21:25, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, you can do it with everything, just like UnNews, in international things. Our UnNews, OnNieuws is very in rest, a month no news, AAAAAAAAAAA! But, it can be. I still don't know why he is banned anyway. Will be for some reason. R7 (NL) 21:37, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Well, the reason was trolling. But whether or not such a ban was just, this is an inter-uncyclopedian project and people should be able to coöperate. DG has already said he could stay out of Uncyc business and only work on FO pages. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 21:59, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
What can we do for his exoneration? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 10:27, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Russian Embassy[edit source]

We (i.e. I) have redesigned our FO page. Have a look :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 17:59, February 23, 2010 (UTC)

cool--Vassilianna 13:59, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

Looks good. R7 (NL) 15:24, March 7, 2010 (UTC)

Blue Alert[edit source]

Where is Sid? His last contribution was in February! We have loads of things to do. First of all, we have to invade Prague! Then, we need to find Sid, wherever he may be. Then, we have to breathe, because this sentence just won't come to an end it has no commas or full stops so you have to speak on until you almost collapse which is just really unhealthy! [gasp] Blue Alert! All Ambassadors and Translators report as soon as possible! Praetorian, you and I will run the Foreign Office until Sid returns. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 15:23, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Gasp! I hear you, Lars. I'm somewhat occupied at the moment but I will try to keep up appearances. I have no contact to Sid, however. NaturalBornKieler (talk) Germany Flag 1.png 16:36, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Praetorian reports! Copy that, will help you to run l'Office Etranger. Sorry for being two hours late. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 17:45, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think people always are 24/7 active on the internet. Maybe you should give him some more time. I would start worrying when he doesn't show up after two months | Cartoonist | You're nuts? Don't worry... Me too! | 18:10, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Well, just in case, we are taking over control temporarily. Of course, when he returns, it be tomorrow, it be in 6 months, everything will get back to normal. Also, there are some other things we have to discuss, for example with the French Ambassador. Also, there was a sort of role call a while ago and I think this is a good way to see who's still alive. Anyway, I still had to contact some people: the ones with the Chinesesque characters and the Danish and Spanish guys, I believe. I have to go now, so anyone mind contacting these blokes? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 19:32, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Informed those guys. Zh-tw-uncy acted strange, but I managed to beat it. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 21:02, March 11, 2010 (UTC)
Spanish Inciclopedia, present. We are a little bit busy with an event we call the Ryder Cup, so everybody's busy to be translating the projects. --Soccer Fan HondurasSoccer.gif Whisper it 21:05, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

The Danish guy seems to be very much alive, though he haven't worried his mind with translations of danish articles for a decade. What could be interesting for the whole wide world. Denmark has officially been closed down since The Copenhagen summit to pay the salary of the police officers, who was allocated to prevent the danish Prime Minister from doing something stupid.Compima2.gif Frode Fenis (talk)(hits)11 Mar 2010 21:16 (UTC)

Alright, so let's make a list. The countries that have reported so far are:
  • Netherlands (and Flanders)
  • Germany
  • Russia
  • International Wikis (Henning)
  • Spain
  • Denmark
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Norway

Right, that's not too bad. Awaiting other Translators. I'd like to start discussing some issues on Saturday. If possible, I'd in fact like to call for a Meeting on Jabber at 7 pm GMT. Is everyone okay with that? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 22:12, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Saturday? 'Tis okay with me. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 12:23, March 12, 2010 (UTC)
saturday is a good day for me,but timing's not :( any way i may be there,else i'l try to send a representative if possible. SO, What happened with master Sid?Hope he's not dealing with Flying Spaggeti Monster....--sn00by
Well, last time we heard from him was when he was fighting in the Czech Republic. His last message was “The Slovaks have teamed up with the Czech. We're facing serious resistance. Oh my God, here come the Russians, too!” I think his squadron have retreated to Dresden. Kieler, please send some troops over there to pick him up, I think he may have just lost his radio. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 10:02, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
Holy cow! My comrades united against me! Ferro et igni! — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 13:53, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Italy is here, late as always. I'm a little sorry we are not so active for the FO, we all are very busy because of our private life (university, job, ...) and for Nonciclopedia. What is exactly the problem with the absence of Sid? We need to create a better administrative structure? --MFH (talk) 12:35, March 13, 2010 (UTC)

Well, we were supposed to find an understudy leader for the FO way back in the beginning, but for some reason we didn't. We do have to keep the FO running, so I sounded the alarm.
I think Sid was wrong, Praetorian. I just got some aerial photographs and they don't show Russian soldiers, but Finnish ones... How awkward. Are we facing a meta-war? Henning, Howie, Frode Fenis, what do you think are the odds of Sweden teaming up with these rebels? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 16:39, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
Norway is calling! My ænglish is still as bad as always, so I will try to do this short. I'm alive, Norway i bussy (we are invading Sweden! Why we are invading Sweden? Biff, bacon and pornmovies is much cheaper in Sweden than in Norway!)--Howie 21:22, March 13, 2010 (UTC)
Alright, so I guess we can officially confirm Sweden has become our enemy. Praetorian, can you please confirm Belarus and Ukraine are our allies? Also, I'm making an issue of the FO Times. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 08:05, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
Ukrainian and Belarussian Uncys are too small and there are few users. Absurdopedia joins their efforts, we have many users from Belarus and Ukraine. So, they work to us. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 09:04, March 14, 2010 (UTC)
As everyone will know Denmark is not in a position to decide where and when to make war any longer, though we have fought the Swedes throughout most of our history. The danish Minister of Defense Gitte Lillelund-Bech ( a woman!) thinks that Afghanistan will be over soon and we will then continue doing war in Laos, Tibet and Mongolia. Howie - GD - you wouldn't know how to make war anyway - apart from in Photoshop.Compima2.gif Frode Fenis (talk)(hits)15 Mar 2010 04:25 (UTC)
@ Preatorian --> Alright, so then the Ukraine and Belarus are allies. The Romanian-Moldavian Ambassador, Erwin, is probably going to join the Foreign Office, too.
@ All --> The first Issue of the Foreign Times is up. The idea is to copy it to your Uncyc, maybe translate it, insert your own international advertisement, and include your own Ambassador's and Translator's activities. It is probably wise to upload the File:FT4.png to your Uncyc. I'll upload it on UnCommons, please test whether that works for your Uncyc. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 17:11, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
I cannot access UnCommons without logging in, so I've asked the Dutch-Flemish Ambassador, Henning, to do it. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 17:27, March 16, 2010 (UTC)
I felt inspired to make the first Danish edition of Foreign Times ,as long as I can't access your international issue.Compima2.gif Frode Fenis (talk)(hits)16 Mar 2010 23:30 (UTC)
I translated it to Russian the same day you wrote it. (For those who are interested.) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 14:12, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
You can access it. It's here. The Dutch edition has also been made and can be found here. I'm going to finish the last bit (the Translation News) this afternoon. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 14:40, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
I think it was a good idea if you made some general guidelines for what "Foreign Times" is going to be about for the rest of the translator/embassadors. It's not enough to make a nice header. And the design sucks.....you don't make a nice header and put in on a darkgray beckground. Make some specifications so it doesn't end as another project which failed because, somebody forgot to communicate the idea behind. Compima2.gif Frode Fenis (talk)(hits)17 Mar 2010 07:16 (UTC)
Thank you, I shall work on that. By the way, Gizmoka dropped out. Should we try and look for another Representative or just declare war to Hungary? | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 14:40, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
Too many wars. Soon we'll end up surrounded by enemies. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 15:47, March 17, 2010 (UTC)
Right, then Hungary shall stay neutral. Right, now what do you say we try and find Representatives for the enemies and Hungary. Maybe I can use my account on the Necyklopedie to make the Czech Republic our ally... | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 20:01, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
I won't be here the coming three days. Praet, lead the troops to Karlóvy Váry. I'll be back Thursday evening. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 06:11, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
Right, the border area will fall! — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 17:55, March 23, 2010 (UTC)

Desciclopédia representant[edit source]

Lars call me on UnMeta last Saturday, I was busy on weekend (my weekend ends on Wednesday), so, I'm here now! What I did lose? Franklin Kerber 15:27, March 24, 2010 (UTC)

Reporting in too, I couldn't connect anywhere since the 9th. Sorry for being too late. Fire_Wolf_br 01:44, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
We decided to move the Project to UnMeta. And to revive the Foreign Times, of course. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 05:20, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
Right, so that is the Portuguese delegation (well, actually Brazilian, but since I'm using a map of Europe, I'll say Portuguese.) By the way, this message from the Czech and Slovakian TV just got in. “In order to stand strong against the Meta Armies, the Czech and Slovakian leaders have decided to join their strengths and reünite the Republic of Czechoslovakia.” Unless anyone objects before Saturday, I'm going to try and talk to Czechoslovakian diplomats and see if I can make some kind of treaty. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 20:27, March 25, 2010 (UTC)
No problems. I would also call attention for a problem we're having since December. Our wiki is damn too slow... Well, I've opened a thread at the UnMeta conference room for further discussions. Fire_Wolf_br 19:41, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
Wtf, UnMeta is also a Carlb's server. Therefore, I couldn't post anything there. I wonder that he got attacked by vicious beavers. Fire_Wolf_br 22:42, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Tenuous Hungarian Representation[edit source]

Sid here, haven't been around for a very very long time indeed due to (ongoing) activities in that bitch of an antithesis to the Virtual World called Real Life. I'm currently in Hungary (Budapest) about to undergo training as an English teacher and will be occupied with this task until ALL YOU BLOODY FOREIGNERS SPEAK BLOODY ENGLISH. As it is, I won't be on uncyclopedia (what changes...) for quite a long time. Just thought I'd better clarify things though. --Sid Wolf, 11th April 2010 20:17 CE Time.

Right, well, Praetorian and I are running the Foreign Office right now. You can still take over anytime you want. | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 20:02, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Oh. You aren't joking, are you? Good luck and not to worry, we'll keep the project safe until you return. Lars, I've seen some talk on Meta, but it was either in Dutch or Portuguese. Any progress in talking local bureaucrats into allowing us to deploy the project there? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 22:23, April 11, 2010 (UTC)
Well, some pages have already been copied, and we have permission, it's just waiting till someone finds the time to finish the job... | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 08:30, April 13, 2010 (UTC)
And you persuaded Necyklopedie to take part in the Project? Excellent! — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 12:01, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, I guess this is the right time to make another Foreign Times! | L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 17:25, April 14, 2010 (UTC)
wait, "Foreign times", Sid's back, "Hungary"?! what did I miss? RaymondAK-47talk - Over my dead, partly decomposed, raped body! 17:30, April 17, 2010 (UTC)
Do read "Blue Alert" :-) — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 06:46, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Are we dead yet?[edit source]

Since the Assembly page has not been edited for exactly a month, I ask the Ambassadors and chief representatives to write their signatures below to find out if the Foreign Project is still alive.

10 days later ... but, i are am still busy to look for some ideas to download from English to Dutch, like underscore. R7 (NL) 18:42, May 28, 2010 (UTC)
you try writing five articles and translating your crappy ones too! RaymondAK-47 18:02, May 31, 2010 (UTC)
Sid, back in England, signing in without signing in. FO, FO will never die, it just sleeps, waiting... --Sid 13:12, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Welcome back! — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 19:34, June 7, 2010 (UTC)
Thanks P, how's it going? I mean like generally, not just regarding FO... --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 00:20, June 8, 2010 (UTC)
Is there life outside FO? — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 20:24, June 10, 2010 (UTC)
Yes there is -- Zyniker 15:23, June 25, 2010 (UTC)
Yo... I'm back... So -- just wondering -- I guess Praetorian is leading the FO at this moment? L. Catepé //// Talk //// Work | 13:44, July 13, 2010 (UTC)
Yes, but I don't have any data about the current activities of the representatives. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 14:55, July 14, 2010 (UTC)
We're fine. Well, we maintain our old policy of "we set up the table, with knives, spoons, plates, cups and food. Feel free to serve yourself". We maintain an index of already translated articles with links to many other Uncyclopedias best-of lists, so people can do they work without the need to report to someone, and to keep a control of everything (so we won't have the same article translated twice). I would like to add that Cartoonist is doing a very good job on the forums outside Oncy. Fire_Wolf_br Cookies? 18:09, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Ah well, it's already 2011 in Russia[edit source]

And in China, Japan and Korea. But no celebrations for Kyrgyzstan, I fear. Nevertheless I wish you, Western capitalists, a happy New Year on behalf of Absurdopedia. When it will strike, you'll know it. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 21:37, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Time to wind up, guys[edit source]

This is sad. // C'est bien triste. // 这是悲伤的。 // Пичалька.

Since I've spotted no improvement in our patient's status, I think it's time to wind up all administrative work in the coordinating centre.
However, all translators are free to do their work; moreover, it is highly encouraged by those of us who know several languages.
Best regards. — Praetorian the Glorious Strategist. 11:16, July 12, 2011 (UTC)

Translations for UN:VITAL articles?[edit source]

I've been digging around a few of the foreign Uncyclopedias and ran across a few articles currently listed on UN:VITAL. With one or two exceptions, they all seem pretty lengthy and at least one is a featured article. I'm not sure how active this project is at the moment but it'd be great if someone could translate a few of these.

MadMax 04:16, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Hello MadMax the article Thirty Years' War is in fact an article about several wars that nobody really interests for today. Should be something like "The war that happened so long ago". And yes, it was featured as article of the week (week 14 in 2010). -- Zyniker 13:52, September 8, 2011 (UTC)
