LORD FLUFFY[edit | edit source]

Hello, Ceridwyn. I was just wondering whether or not you'd like some help with your proofreading service. You might consider directing some articles to me- I'd be happy to assist you. --Lord Fluffy who rains fire from the heavens 20:30, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Certainly, more help is always appreciated, there is a dedicated voluntary team of people who help out with the Proofreading service here: User:Ceridwyn/Proofreading Service#The Comma Brigade :) Also we need more people adding articles to the service so we can clean up Uncyc! Just slap {{Proofreading}} on any articles you come across that could use a spring clean! Thanks muchly! ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 10:04, 30 May 2007

Thanks for the work done on EOAUE. However ae is a perfectly valid spelling of ..cyclopaedia. --Kelpan 07:15, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

I agree, and I prefer it, however the article was inconsistent in its spelling, so I went with how Uncyc is spelt... no a :P And you're welcome! ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 07:17, 07 May 2007

CERIDWYN PINK BURNS MY EYES!!!!!! How do I stop it? -Han Solo (High Gen. Grue) Comlink Grueslayer

The solution is simple really. Just douse your computer thoroughly in water. This will stop the burning and soothe any chaffing. If symptoms persist, please bury your computer in soft peat for 3 months. Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 04:16, 03 May 2007

No need to excuse[edit | edit source]

I never seek unanimity. This is not just futile, but also can drive you crazy. See, I've expanded that article following ModusOperandi critique. The catchy thing on that particular article is that you will find it far funnier if you are concerned about some excesses of racial activism. In other words, if you think that overtly political black activists - the kind that demand a revolting (or plainly criminal) attitude from black people - can be a real pain. Then reading things as Magneto's defeat due a liberal discourse would surely light a far brighter spark. -- herr doktor needsAV2 Rocket.gif [scream!] 02:21, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Of course, I just apologise because I feel mean voting against things! But not mean enough to vote for if they don't tickle my funny bone enough. Part of why I apologised is that I knew you had discussed this a lot with MO to work on the article (remember I hijacked the conversation somewhat? >.> ) so felt extra bad still giving it a thumbs down.
I understand the reasoning, however my thinking on articles here is that they need to be accessible to a wide section of the audience, not just situational. I've been told twice so far today that "If you understood, you'd find it funnier I promise!" which is all well and good but this isnt JokesForPeopleWhoAllUnderstandPedia :P~
I decided against publishing my one and only article I ever wrote here because it didn't suit the audience and instead put it on (Exhibit A) Personally I think its a riot and never fails to induce tears of laughter in me but I know that not everyone appreciates WoW humour here. (Probably just as well or I'd be a worse article whore than anyone else here.)
Not saying that your article isn't good or doesn't belong here, just that the line of reasoning "you'd find it funny IF you happened to <insert condition here>" doesn't wash with me :P
My comments on the voting page stand as for my suggestions!Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 02:32, 05 May 2007
Well, by the 15 votes, I can say it's not a soooo limited audience, hehehe. Yes, I will be a little disapointed if it fails, but whatever, this is not a contest and if it was I would be among the less qualified racers. It's a fact that we do have some common grounds over here, as never giving a fuck about political correctness - no one felt shocked from my Fat Ladies entry, for instance - but taste is taste and there are lots of featured stuff that didn't tickle me even a little bit. Not being stuck up, it was my 4th featuring - some of them required a little specific knowledge, as this one, which can not make any sense if you are not a sci-fi initiate. -- herr doktor needsAV2 Rocket.gif [scream!] 02:43, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
Yes and probably the so far unanimous votes for it made me not vote against also. Hence abstain. It didn't work for me, but thats ok. As you say, you can't please everyone and there is no accounting for taste. My benchmark for my argument is John Caldwell Calhoun of whom I'd never heard, but nonetheless had me in hysterics. Thats what I look for in articles. Is it funny despite me not having heard of the original item before? This may be a difficult and for some, unattainable quality. I sure as hell don't know how to do it, so I applaud those who do! Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 02:49, 05 May 2007
I have a policy regarding VFH. I just vote against something that upsets me so much that I think it would be a shame for us seeing it on front page. Elseways, I either vote for or abstain. So there's nothing wrong in abstaining, but it's up to you to decide. -- herr doktor needsAV2 Rocket.gif [scream!] 02:54, 5 May 2007 (UTC)
Theres very little on VFH that bothers me. I vote with a pretty high quality standard in mind, I don't pass those gold stars out will-he, nil-he. Against = Doesn't meet my standard. For = Does. Abstain = Can't decide either way. So at least you got an abstain ;P Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 02:56, 05 May 2007
On second thought, maybe this is more a question of political opinion than previous knowledge. This is not an accusation, just a perception. -- herr doktor needsAV2 Rocket.gif [scream!] 03:26, 5 May 2007 (UTC)

Bruce Wayne is way over done. Commander Yum-Yum however doesn't sound all that secret. Bruce's ability to fly under the radar is his nonchalant playboy apathy. Commander Yum-Yum sounds like a superhero in and of himself. Perhaps something a bit more low-key? Ceridwyntalk contribs arc2.0 09:34, 06 May 2007

It was a show. On the "television". Or "magic box". <emoticon of evil grin. Evil!> Floyd was a barber. A weird barber. Cut hair for a living. From the era where TV was b&w, and the people on it were mostly of the latter. You didn't miss much. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:10, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

He was, like, this big at the time <emoticon of me indicating that Ron Howard was a little kid on the show>). The show did have a simple charm. Of course, if you tell others that I said this I'll deny it. I've spent too long cultivating my public image of a quite mad, curmugeonly coot to have it ruined by the truth. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:46, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

My UnNewsy thingy[edit | edit source]

Thanks again for the decommafication. I just thought I should point out (although I hope you already know), that a dig at "them" isn't necessarily a dig at you. Unless you want to live in a theocracy, think that the world is 6,000 years old (and think that everyone else should believe that it is) and believe that a talking snake literally tricked a man and his clone (who's a woman) into eating a fruit fifteen-hundred years before it rained for a really long time, etc. Then it is a dig at you. Actually, then a bunch of my stuff would be a dig at you. Hmmm. I'd love you either way. I'm cool like that. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:47, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

Eeep! Aw hun, don't worry, I wasn't personally offended, I just wondered for a moment if I should in good conscience help make an article better that appeared to mock my beliefs. :P And yeah I actually do believe in Adam & Eve etc, but not that the world is only 6,000 years old! Thats a bit farfetched. However thats not to say that I don't find room for evolution theory in there as well. Personally I took it as a quite political piece aimed at Americans and therefore didn't really relate to it. Don't stress :P

Not everything I write on religion is like this. Okay, most of it is. Heck most of it is far darker, but when I first got here I played with the Original Jesus page, which used to be funny, if unfocussed. I'm not going to bother linking it; I got into a pissing contest with another user about the direction he was taking it (dumb and mean, two things I dislike, especially in combination with each other) and chose to walk away. He got banned. A bunch of times (the last, if I remember correctly, for getting into a revert war with Procopius on one of his pages while that page was on VFH. Jerk.). But I do go on... --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:04, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Any particular reason for the dark slant on religious topics? Just out of curiosity? ^_^ ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 06:17, 08 May 2007
I'm anti-authoritarian. I didn't start off that way, but the more I learn about people, the more I question people's motives when they say that I shouldn't question their motives. Nationalism/statism and religion seem to be two big centers for authoritarianism. US politics, at least for a while (where questioning the motives of the government was equated with treason), Pope Benedict (the inerrant word of God on Earth), Jerry Falwell (who says the stupidest, most vicious things. But it's okay, 'cause he works for Jesus...), many other religious leaders (some seem to enjoy whining about how oppressed western Christians are, essentially redefining "oppression" as "not getting everything you want". This means that my parents oppressed me every Christmas by not getting me that Transformer I wanted. Meanwhile Islamists say that I must respect their religion while they're torching a city because I'm not respecting it enough. That's not respect, that's submission), Shariah law (don't get me started on that one), etc. For me it all started with the finger-pointing at Iraq right after toppling the Taliban (when people who asked "Why Iraq?" were branded as unpatriotic), and the Danish cartoon "incident", which blew my mind (satire is blasphemy, and the punishment for blaspheming the prophet is death? WTF?). My consternation at the second one somehow ended up as the dryly funny Freedom of speech, which was probably the first page I wrote here that works. And keep it under your hat, as it's not due for release until June, but I think that this is funny, if a bit esoteric (Why June? I limit myself to one UnNews story a week, mostly to avoid clogging UnNews when the muse visits and partly so that I can tweak the page to perfection before it's released). There I whored. Twice. Now I'm gonna have to take a bath. Dang.
To sum up; God I don't mind, it's just some people that work for Him that I've got a beef with. Anytime someone says that they know what God wants or that questions are bad, my alarm bells start ringing. Lastly, I'm a little whore. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:01, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Well the freedom of speech thing I did find quite funny, especially Your so Vain (I bet you think this Psalm is about you) that cracked me up. Not so sure about the upcoming news bulletin though. Anyway, your summation makes sense, it can be really hard to figure out what He really does want (well, impossible on your own without a bit of a nudge in the right direction from Him IMO, at least in my experience anyway), but its a shame if people are getting in the way of that. Because really when you boil it down, it should just be about God and you. Thats my take on it anyway. Everything else kinda follows if you work on just that. And I don't think questions are EVER bad. ^_^ ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 08:07, 08 May 2007
You're one of the good ones, then. It's too bad that the jackasses get all the press. As for the UnNews story, sometimes I have an odd thought pop into my head (Like "According to the Bible there are a few people up there who still have their bodies. What's up with that?"), and have to write something to make it go away. Sometimes it works out better than others. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 08:32, 8 May 2007 (UTC)
Well like I said, I think questions are good. As far as I know (and I'm by no means an expert on the subject) but there was at least one person other than Jesus who directly ascended to Heaven alive, and that was Elijah. From what I've read elsewhere those who die prior to the Rapture are "resting" and waiting. I took that to mean not in Heaven. So yeah, I guess its pretty quiet up there on the human front! Which I guess is backed up by visions of Heaven documented in the Bible, the visionee never sees bunches of people hanging around or dead relatives "Oh hi Grandpa, no no don't worry, I'm just visiting! Sorry, better pay attention to this, I gotta write it all down afterwards, I'll catch up with you later!"
I suspect the "jackasses" get the press because someone wants to do the best he can to show Christians up in the worst possible light... ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 09:31, 08 May 2007
Actually, boobs like Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell look bad all on their own. Mostly they do it on channels that are controlled by people who agree with them. Heck, Pat does it on his own show on his own channel on his own broadcasting system...which wouldn't matter so much if it wasn't so popular. Both, incidentally, run their own universities as well, creating a closed loop (the biology/astronomy/history courses must be a breeze!). Meanwhile guys like Benny Hinn and the abhorent "gospel of prosperity" (God wants you to be rich. Send money) look bad in a whole different way. And it's all tax-free. *Sigh*. As I said, it's too bad the jackasses get all the press.

It was a while ago.../me checks diary. Ah, the second one. Half of the reason I like Uncyc so much is that there's no pressure. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:50, 9 May 2007 (UTC)
A while ago? As in 6 minutes... ook :P Really? I feel pressure. Especially if I see that there are articles on VFD/VFH that I haven't voted on. Anyway, the plea for entertainment stands. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 03:56, 09 May 2007

Well, it's not entertaining but...Pat Roberston is the guy who advocated "...taking out..." Hugo Chavez on his show. Also, he looks like Yoda. Jerry Falwell thinks the purple Teletubby is a homosexual, and Benny Hinn is a faith healer. All are millionaires (Pat's personal worth is half a billion dollars), and the first two regularly talk with the President of the USA. Pat and Jerry, unfortunately, command the loyalty of a sizeable minority of the USA who think that they speak for God (Falwell alone has enough followers to potentially tilt any election in favour of his choice, at least in the South and Midwest). People like them are the reason why most of my satire isn't funny. Luckily I sometimes speak in a silly voice and write a silly page around it, or being here would be no fun at all. I like both kinds of pages in there own way, but the creation of the first kind is like pulling teeth. I once reread most of the Book of Joshua for a page and researched Sharia Law for another...both proved to be far worse than I thought. It exorcises my demons, I think (taking the piss out of things does that). Plus Pat looks like Yoda. Oh! And Jerry looks like Jabba the Hut. See? Everything is better when it somehow relates to my childhood. There, not entertaining at all. Moo ha-ha! /me rubs goatee. --Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:17, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Ooo! You want entertaining? I found out today that I've been driving around for about a month with no insurance. I was lucky to get away without a tow and a fine. I used to be smart. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 20:02, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

Insurance is compulsory??? As for the wall of text above, it was vaguely entertaining I suppose, it stopped me intentionally harming myself to get out of accounting class, so thats something I guess :P ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 10:20, 09 May 2007
Yes, to drive without insurance is essentially, um, a good way to be permanently broke if you happen to run over a guy. I was going to rib you about that whole "enjoying proofreading" thing by telling you to get a fun hobby on the side, like accounting. If I had sails, you'd have just taken the wind out of them. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:24, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
This isn't a hobby? Anyway, aside from uncyc, blogging and generally whoring forums, well theres always lolcats! XD Damn I love lolcats. In fact, lolcats allow me to combine 2 of my most favourite activities; whoring forums and...lolcats.
Did I mention lolcats? ^_^ I'd link you my photobucket but Olipro and Rcmurphy taught me a valuable lesson the other day about doing that. :( ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 01:41, 10 May 2007
Um, yeah. Good luck with that. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 01:52, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Aww I lubs dunecat XD You should see my forums, its just cats cats cats! Actually we could prolly do with moar people on there tho. Currently we have a membership of 3. :( ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 01:55, 10 May 2007
I like that particular pic only because it's an adorable Dune reference. Cat people, meanwhile, freak me out. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:01, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Cat people or lolcat people? I'm not a "cat person" per se. I have a cat, but I'm not one of those crazy oldschool cat ladies. I just think cat pictures with captions on them are the funniest thing ever. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:03, 10 May 2007
Again, good luck with that. Write Lolcat, maybe? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:18, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Why is everyone so obsessed with me writing something? I wrote the thing I came here to write, and for the moment, I'm done. Plenty of people write plenty of crap here everyday, I do my part by voting to reduce it. I don't have anything to add to it at this point in time. Except perhaps HowTo: Feng Shui your computer but I honestly can't be arsed yet.
Speaking of which have you even read User:Ceridwyn/Kralnor before encouraging me to write MORE??~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:23, 10 May 2007
We at Uncyc encourage Uncycians to write because it's a wiki. One that anyone can edit. As for Kralnor, it's so far outside my knowledge base that it's all Greek to me. Greek, incidentally, is also well outside my knowledge base. My only input is: why is it still under your userpage? Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:36, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Sure but someone needs to focus on cleaning up rather than making more?
Its still under my userpage because everyone I've shown it to said the same thing you just did. I would like to think that the humour can be seen despite not knowing what its about, in fact I would like to think that by reading it one would understand, or perhaps following some of the links, but yeah, noone does. Alas, Kralnor lies unloved in my userpages. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:39, 10 May 2007

If you release it, at least other nerds will have a chance to read it. Remember, only other WOWites will bother searching for "Kralnor". Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:42, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

True I suppose. I just sort of hoped it might be as accessible as say Fisher Price: A Retrospective which is one of the major influences. Do you think Kralnor is worth releasing though? He is a major figure in WoW community lore, all you need to do is search the warlock forums for Kralnor and you'll get screeds and screeds... ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:45, 10 May 2007
You're asking the wrong guy...but I say, yes, release it. While it's under your userpage it's practically incommunicado. Pages want to come out and play. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:52, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Well ok...I've moved it out into the wide world. Fly my pretty, fly! I'm scared! Anyway incommunicado was fine because I'd decided no-one here would care about it. ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 02:58, 10 May 2007
You lack confidence, Grasshopper. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:04, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Not really so much that I lack it, I had tons of it, and I still do that its a great article. Personally it still cracks me up to read it. Its just that people here don't seem to appreciate it. Its ok, I still love you all! Well except Rcmurphy. He's an arc-wrecker! ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 03:36, 10 May 2007
There are a bunch of pages here that are niche pages. If this wiki consisted only of pages that everyone understood, it would suck. I'm sure that someone, someday will appreciate your genius, you weirdo. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:44, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
Hmm I suppose. I'd like appreciation :) That would be nice. And thanks for the compliment! ^_~ ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 04:18, 10 May 2007

Updates on my userpage needed[edit | edit source]

  • While I love the pink and purple flashing sign to the Proofreading Service, it is a bit big!
  • Kralnor is now in the mainspace and should be listed somewhere
  • Tons of new awards to be added. The F@H one can be dropped as its pretty old now...
  • I don't get the mexican bit personally...
  • Perhaps the female userbox could be added if its not there already?
  • Likewise if there is a nice non-offensive Christian userbox that would be nice too.
  • Must must must have one of those {{User Proofreader}} boxes too!!!
  • Page wot I hav writ: HowTo:Feng Shui Your Computer(moved into mainspace now)

Things not to be touched ever:[edit | edit source]

  • The random colour ellipses.
  • The biography by Spang
  • The pink username at the top
  • My lovely userboxes
  • Any awards by Spang

I think that about covers it.

For the pep talk on VFH, and also the advice. I suppose it was selfish of me to expect instant gratification (what am I, Paris Hilton?) I'm looking forward to being a part of the Proofreading Service (yay, grammar), and to know that you cared enough about an unknown semi-n00b (that is also somehow an experienced editor) to write me a somewhat fully-baked advice, that touched the warm fuzzy spot of my colon only rivaled by Tickle me Elmo's fur. And thus, here:

For the above sob story.

Feel free to sell it to Lifetime.


Wow, I expected a bit of a flame tbh, so I'm very appreciative! I thought you had it out for me because of my against votes, and maybe I set the VFH standard pretty high for a For but I want to be honest with my votes. So I'm really glad to hear theres no hard feelings. If I can ever be of help, drop me a line here! :) ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 03:08, 16 May 2007
I will take you up on the offer should the need arise, rest assured. However, for now, just keep up the strict guidelines for your VFH votes. Otherwise, what would we have? Madness, and also bad stuff up front (which is not to say my stuff is bad, but it doesn't hit that spot of yours. What is the spot, anyway? I'm not sure if it's any more than a mythical construct used for the rationalization of your voting procedure. But I digress). Cheerio.-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 20:05, 16 May 2007 (UTC)
Look, a question! It's really more etiquette-related, but is 1 month too soon to re-nom an article, when it's a self-nom? Feel free to say "Yes, it's immature and also stupid." I can deal. I've been called worse, incidentally by my teachers. Go figure...-Sir Ljlego, GUN VFH FIYC WotM SG WHotM PWotM AotM EGAEDM ANotM + (Talk) 22:25, 17 May 2007 (UTC)
I would say if you have significantly improved the article in that time, then sure. If not, then it might be in your best interests to wait another month, then self nom it again in a while, just so that the regular voters get a wee break, then it will be new and refreshing to see it back again, like an old friend who you havent seen for a while!
Pick your time well, if there are lots of popular articles on VFH at the time, bide your time, wait til we have a lull, then yours is more likely to get the recognition it deserves! However, I wouldn't profess to be the expert on the field, I only dabble in VFH voting, my main focus is on VFD, so comparitively you're doing fantastic!
TOT but your teachers should never call you names, thats totally unprofessional and over the line. You should talk to your parents about that...
But no, its not immature nor stupid to believe in your work, I think your confidence is wonderful, I wish I was so confident about my writings. :) Keep it up! Just remember to balance it with humility when appropriate and you will do just fine here. Remember some of the more popular people around here are terrible whores when it comes to pushing their own work, and we love them for it :) *Cough*
You get involved, you ask intelligent and thoughtful questions, you contribute on the forums and vote on other peoples articles as well, I'd say you are settling in very well grasshopper! :D ~ Dame Ceridwyn ~ talk DUN VoNSE arc2.0 10:38, 17 May 2007
A comment and a question: thank you. I was really only joking when I said my teachers called me names, except this one administrator, but he's a dick. I'm probably going to prank call him at the end of the school year, but I digress.

Not that that's too hard, as one of them believes she's going to be with her 16-year-old boyfriend who proposed to her today forever, another believes that friends-with-benefits is a good idea, and another thinks that being intelligent is stupid. Granted, these aren't exactly my "friends," they're more like acquaintances, but still. Now I can feel smart.

Generally I've found talk pages are long, and yes they can take a bit to load, such is life. without long talk pages many of the in-jokes and notorious flamewars would never have taken place and our lives would be much poorer for it. Also I certainly wouldn't consider myself one of the "Populars" as you put it. Its really not as cliquey as you make out.

Here comes the science: If a template uses section headers and isn't subst'ed, it becomes impossible to use the edit links on them to get to the right section (because when you edit section 1 on the template, say, it looks for the first section on the page, and it won't find the right one as it isn't on the page itself, it's in the template). It also makes any subsequent sections link to the wrong section to edit. This has been a public service announcement by your friendly neighbourhood Spang. Spang talk 04:08, 03 Jun 2007

Well whaddya know, that appears to have been fixed in this version of mediawiki. But the edit links on the templated sections now link to edit the template itself, which you maybe don't want. Spang talk 04:29, 03 Jun 2007
