Don Martin

I made some slight format changes to your article. I have a question about one of the websites listed in the references section. It points to a broken page. Is that intentional? If so, you should put a hidden message in that section so it wont be removed. Great job by the way! You should think about putting it up for pee review. Any chance of a Sergio Aragones article? MadMax 02:20, 6 July 2009 (UTC)


Thanks for fixing up Don Martin. And I made the phony URLs clear. Please take another look. I dare not submit to the Pee Review because they are just that. I misspelled the last name of Bill Gains for obvious reason. I cannot submit my own contributions. In fact, I have contributed all these pages and YOU are the first person to say a nice word.

Hi there!

I read some of your stuff. Nice. I was going to suggest you get yourself one of those user page thinggys. Just a thought. Oh... Do try Pee Review. Not all the reviews are piss poor, and if you do get a bad review... Who really cares anyway? It's just one persons view, but it could be very helpful... Try it. ;) MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 00:15, Jul 9

Is starting to look really good. I left some comments about it for ya on the talk page of the article... I will give this one a few edits myself later if that's OK with you? I do like what you are doing here, but I would like to have a fiddle with the layout and such. It badly needs some more pics if you could upload em? MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 20:55, Jul 19

Yo Bro! I'm whipped! It's 5am. Have fun with this one. I added two more pics. Improve it any way you want. I like the God gets a black-hole-in-one and tips His caddy - my fav.--Funnybony 22:16, 19 July 2009 (UTC)


Here's a TRUE one Laird_Hamilton --Funnybony 11:33, 21 July 2009 (UTC)

Dude... CREATE A USER PAGE DAMMIT! Please? Here!!! As I said, it's only a suggestion, but if you do, you can put links to your articles on it, so that other people can see what stuff you have done, or what you are working on now... It's linked from your sig, and you can access it at any time cos it's at the top of your page. :) MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 18:45, Jul 22

Do you see the red link on this page when you sign your name? Like this: User:Funnybony. Click on it. That blank page is your userpage. Go crazy with it. Woody On Fire! Wood burning.gifTalking Woody Stalking Woody 20:09, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Also, if you look at the top right of your screen, no matter where you are on this site, you can see your name, then "my talk" then "my preferences" and so on... you can always click on the "Funnybony" link, and it will take you to your userpage. Just like clicking on "my talk" will take you to your talk page. Woody On Fire! Wood burning.gifTalking Woody Stalking Woody 20:12, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

NYC Unnews VFH

Hya, I removed the nomination since it falls under self-nom, and you need to get a pee review before you can do that. Get one, and then you can renom. I think you might want to consider to add some more content to the article before though. ~Jewriken.GIF 21:14, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

Renominating Kriptonite

Since the VFH page for Kriptonite already exists, you can't renominate it there again. It's a simple thing to fix, though! In the little nomination box, instead of trying to nominate "Kriptonite", put in "Kriptonite (2nd nomination)", or something similar. This'll create a new nomination page that won't interfere with the old one, but will be just as good. --Littleboyonly.jpg TKFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFUJewriken.GIFCK Oldmanonly.jpg 21:35, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

TKF very well explained how you can renom an article, but there's one thing you should be aware of. In the VFH template, behind "|article=" where it says to insert the article title without link, just insert the title, don't include the "(2nd nomination)" part.

<opinion>Although having said that you actually had an overall score of 29, which puts this just below the "nearly adequate" territory, and I can tell you that PEE reviews are a lot nicer than VFH - if you put this up there now then you'll most likely have it crucified. Also the review for iBauer is fairly crap. It is extremely RCMurphiesque is nature. Also given the minimal work that you have done to this article (the most part of this changing all the is to mes) you can't really claim it as your own. I'd suggest putting the second back to PEE review, and ask someone like ChiefJusticeDS, Boomer or myself to do a review for you and then make it fantastic before putting it on VFH. You don't want to put it up to have it ripped to shreds and taken down again almost immediately do you? And to be blunt, neither of these are FA worthy yet, although they both have promise, so it's worth pursuing, but don't jump the gun. </opinion> Pup t 01:29, 9/08/2009

I recommend you go clean it up before anyone notices :) Good luck btw, it's a good concept, it just needs to be clarified and expanded upon --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 14:22, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

I should just add that, if you're not happy with the suggestions I made, you can always incorporate the following template to make it look better. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 01:53, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Version as at 12 August 2009 PEE review

I saw

Your latest edits to Dead Dick. That's looking better now. I hope you get what I'm saying with the bullet lists. You see it a lot at 2012 also, as it's got a long list. The "trouble" with these list in addition to not looking encyclopaedic is that people tend to keep adding daft things to them. You are seeing a bit of that with your 2012 article. If only there was a way to convert that bullet list into something more encyclopaedic looking I think you would be onto a dam good article there. Maybe a table could be used somehow maybe? Or maybe what's there can be re-written into paragraphs. Dead Dick is looking good so far though... MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 19:46, Aug 15

tables are a good way of listing that look Encyclopaedic and discourage edits sans thought. Pup t 19:56, 15/08/2009

I just deleted one list and turned another list into a para. The hook is that VN won because they had the highest score, just like most sports, VN:1,100,000 points to America: 58,000 points. A pretty piss-poor performance by Team America. Man, those Gooks sure know how to play "Dead Dick!" I hope that's coming across. Thanks again. I'll go back a clean up 2012 if that's OK to do. I hate to delete others stuff, even it's crap. But crap really does ruin it for everyone. Best wishes--Funnybony 19:59, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Can you direct me to a sample table. I've never used one. But I sure see your point on lists, there funny but out-of-control. Thanks--Funnybony 20:02, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
This is a fairly simple table to use. There are a couple of templates as well (for example purtytable) but this is straightforward. It uses html table logic, which means you set up how many columns you have in the top row, and how much width they take up.
{| width="70%" |               <!-- starts table and determines width as a percent of "screen" -->
|-                             <!-- I would like a new line, thank you mister computer -->
| width="33.33%" | GLUP!       <!-- I would like a cell in this line about a third, saying "GLUP!" -->
| width="33.33%" | GLIK!       <!-- another one to say "GLIP!" -->
| width="33.34%" | SPLORP!     <!-- and the last cell to say "SPLORP!" -->
|-                             <!-- That first line was hard... I'll try another one -->
|| SLOOPLE!                    <!-- I don't have any particular style for this cell -->
|| CHOMPLE!                    <!-- Same here, so I'll just have "||" to determine new cell -->
|| GARK!                       <!-- This is getting repetitive now  -->
|-                             <!-- That was easy... I might keep going -->
|| SKLORSH!                    <!-- More of the same -->
|| GLUK!                       <!-- Ditto -->
|| KLOONG!                     <!-- Can I do something else now -->
|}                             <!-- Stuff it, I'm just going to finish it here. -->

Yeah, you created a page called Kryptonite (2nd Nomination) - which I'm guessing was a mistake, as nothing links to it and it only had the one edit.

Lunar Launch Details

Man, THIS would make for a good article subject. Lunar Launch Details. I looked all over and I can't find ANY details of how they took off from the Moon, got going 60,000 miles per hour (again), and docked with the Command Module. All they say is they took off from the Moon and docked!?? I'm, like, whoa!?? How the hell did they do that? That must be a really interesting story. I wonder why nobody talks about it? I asked my Dad (Col. in USAF Rtd.) and he didn't have a clue how they did it. That must be the most exciting story on earth, OR the biggest BS?

Oooh Look! A Template!

Raiders-of-the-lost-ark-1.jpg Hey Look! It's only filled with happy sand guys!!
I swear to god, we're going to lose this war if Hitler keeps sending me on these ridiculous wild goose chases. We wasted a whole year running around Europe to look for the Spear of Destiny and all we found was a bunch of people who claimed to own it. We must have killed fifty people and all we have is a truck full of worthless, rusty spear heads and rotting wooden poles to show for it! Now it looks like we'll be spending 1942 finding out how many people have an Ark of the Covenant and collecting a pile of dusty, acacia wood furniture for the Fuhrer in the process. This is not why I became a Nazi. The bling with all the swastikas is nice but I look like Black Leather Jacket Dork when I'm standing here in this dark, musty craphole with the likes of Captain Doofus and Towel Head Priest Guy!

I see the article has been improved (rant removal) but I still think you are trying to cover a lot of ground and the article features a list and an interview makes that more suitable for an audio version. It isn't at all bad as it stands but the mix of formats in the article don't quite hand together for me. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate). 05:56, September 23, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you...

  1. for helping clear out the PEE queue.
  2. for nominating my article
  3. for voting on POOF

As to the first two, that wasn't what I was intending when I asked about the queue, but I do appreciate it. Pup t 21:11, 2/10/2009

I was just waiting for Facebook song to nominate it. Based 100% on merit + 75% on my liking you!=175%
As for Pee reviews, I can go through and nominate the ones that are obviously good, and say nothing about the ones, such as The Who: My Re-Generation which kinda sucks, and is just a bad dupe of The Who, not really about the song nor the (re)Generation. I don't know how to separate FUNNY, SATIRE & SILLY. I just know funny OR NOT. Y/s--Funnybony 22:01, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

VFD Tag Removal

Ehhhh...I'd leave it there until the VFD is closed if I were you in case some overly grumpy admin takes offence. Although if you want to risk it, I wont object. Hey and why not clear out the worst 10% of the facts. You have to admit some of them are really bad. mAttlobster. (hello) 22:25, October 6, 2009 (UTC)

YAOSIR!!! OK, cleaned it up 15% - plus added more good material that came out of this discussion, on the difference between Jack Bauer Facts and Chuck Norris Facts. Added. Thanks! It's better now because of you, Matt. So we saved an entire category from being vacant in Uncyclopedia!--Funnybony 23:39, October 6, 2009 (UTC)
"In case some overly grumpy admin takes offence"? It ain't about taking offence - only admins or poopsmiths remove VFD tags. Here's one good reason why: articles nommed for deletion without a delete tag are automatically kept as an invalid nom - so removing the tag could be an attempt to invalidate the vote, which is essentially cheating. While it's on VFD, the tag has to stay - deal with it. And asking if it's OK to remove it and then doing it without getting a response? Not good either. Have a little patience, Funnybony. You are lucky I don't ban you for that - consider this a strong warning. (But I'm not being grumpy, that's just how things work, OK?) --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 18:24, Oct 7
OK. you're right. It's done. Actually I was just trying to protect Uncyclopedia. I'm not sure if Jack Bauer has seen the VFD tag, but if he does, they'll be, ah, heck to pay? Thanks.--Funnybony 13:37, October 7, 2009 (UTC)

Reverting edits to talk pages

Hey, just noticed it happening with Why's archive talk page. Not an issue as I was just tidying up the urls (as they bug me) and there was nothing important there, but some users and admins would get pretty pissed with it. Try not to do it if you can avoid it. (I'm assuming that there was an edit conflict and you went with the one you were doing. I've done it myself before and been threatened banning.) Pup t 23:50, 12/10/2009

Puppy, you're calling my talk page NOT IMPORTANT? BAD DOG! Seriously, I agree with Puppy. As it happens, I know you were finishing a discussion that began on the talk page which I'd just archived, and I don't have any problem whatsoever with what you did--I'm actually glad you posted there as it finished out the discussion. But admins are too busy reverting a zillion problems to catch the subtleties of an individual user's peculiar tastes, so that something like that could cause problems. I'm glad it didn't, because it certanly wasn't a problem for me. Happy editing! King of the Internet Alden Loveshade??? (royal court)  03:38, October 13, 2009 (UTC)

PEE Review of ITSCON

Thanks for your message; I've replied just below it on my talk page. Spıke ¬  16:25, October 16, 2009 (UTC)

The only thing that baffles me is your cordiality Friday and today versus your tone just after seeing the completed Pee Review. I suggest in User talk:ChiefjusticeDS#On the process that a completed Pee Review form--which they insisted I do, after I wrote the text review that got us talking in the first place--looks too much like a BAD REPORT CARD. I wanted to review your article and three others in text; they agreed, then insisted that I complete a "report card" to close out the formal review process. To be clear, I breezed through the review in table form, meaning only to point you back to the text that I presume you had already read. I suggest to Chief that there should be an alternative way to close a review. Spıke ¬  00:44 18-Oct-09

Spike, to be honest I don't know how to write a review. I don't know how to use their form. So if I see an article that seems really good to me then I nom it. As they told me. Otherwise I do nothing.
My tone is always cordial, as was my first note to you. But your constant belligerence was boring. Now this message is perfectly friendly, so I reply in kind. My only preferred method is cordial. And I hope we always stay that way.--Funnybony 11:06, October 18, 2009 (UTC)

Comments during edit of 18-Oct

Please find a way around using the word "nonsense" in the intro--That is a conclusion, which you should be drawing the reader to, and not have to state for him. It's the difference between writing a novel that says what Fred was thinking, and describing a mannerism of Fred's that lets the reader figure out for himself what Fred was thinking. Likewise the phrase "It is so funny" in the intro. If you have to spell this out for the reader, then your text has failed. Spıke ¬  19:53 19-Oct-09 Crap, you're not reading this, but keep adding new stuff to the intro rather than fixing the old stuff. Keep it small and tight (as I tell Her all the time). The only function of the intro is to lure in the reader. Spıke ¬  20:03 19-Oct-09

The only problem in this whole thing was my missing your points in the first place. I went through the entire thing again after reading the above, removing any wise crack, and keeping a serious tone through out. Dropping that truthful, yet useless, list made a huge difference. I didn't even replace it. I think you will see that ALL your advice was taken - after I came to my senses. I told them to take off Pee cue because as far as I was concerned I had the review I needed and fixed everything. So now its ready for a nomination?? if you think it good enough please nominate it. Otherwise, I would like to lose "stub" status and just be a main page article (at least). Thanks a-million.--Funnybony 20:59, October 19, 2009 (UTC)
Yes! now, dropping the wisecrack voice doesn't mean you think the cult is on the level; you are playing it more deadpan and leading the reader to figure it out for himself. It is surely no longer a stub, and you can take that designation off yourself. I don't think it's done (though I have been away for an hour). I pitched in on three occasions to make grammar and light-edit changes to the intro. Spıke ¬  21:05 19-Oct-09
How right you are. I could never do anything worthwhile in my life without help.--Funnybony 21:09, October 19, 2009 (UTC)

OK, I took it out of Intensive Care (by the authority vested in me; that is, none). By Section 1.2 of UN:ICU, you could have done so yourself. (Validating your own comment about needing help.) You didn't take all my advice, though, (there's more to you today on my talk page) and I would offer again that Sections 13 and 15 don't contain information but anti-information, advisories regarding the absence of information, and could be deleted now. Thinking an article just out of ICU is going to go straight to Page 1, though--the word for that is Cheek. Spıke ¬  21:12 19-Oct-09

Section organization

Even thirteen sections is too many. The body of the article contains the following stuff:

  1. History
  2. "Itscon lineage in numbers"--I don't like this, at least this early; maybe later, under Itscon culture
  3. Formal governance--Includes Sections 3, 5, 7, 9
  4. Consequences of Itscon membership--Includes Sections 4, 6
  5. Itscon culture, song, dance, etc, etc ("culture")--Includes 10, 11, 12, and maybe 2

The list above is not necessarily how I would name the section headings. Spıke ¬  21:20 19-Oct-09

Look at UN:HTBFANJS#Avoid Clichés (most of the time), paragraph 2/3 of the way down that excessively large numbers are a cliché and snap the reader out of his trance of believing you. The article has a few of these. Use believable numbers--they aren't the joke--the words you use to set them up is. Spıke ¬  21:23 19-Oct-09

I'm on-it!!! It's 4 am here in Bangkok, and I'll take care of your latest about absurd numbers, and and organization tomorrow. Tell what ever I missed or just fix it is often easier than explaning to me. Anyway, how right you are. I could never do anything worthwhile in my life without help. Back in the 60s I had my first brush with fame in London with the Band, The Misunderstood, I was lead singer, but there was no way I would get on stage without my band mates. I've never been a solo act. And thanks even more for your personal edits--Funnybony 21:09, October 19, 2009 (UTC)
You'd better get some sleep! It was 2 am when I "pissed on" your article, and the clock time may have contributed to my impatience. If you didn't read it on my talk page, I am on the US East Coast. Last night, a n00b edited Pie with a lot of free-association stuff that had a little to do with pie but wasn't even funny. I was about to revert him, but after a good sleep, I was able to work his material into the intro. Spıke ¬  22:01 19-Oct-09
I couldn't sleep on a roll, right? So I rearranged and deleted the sections to be connected and in order. Its looking really 100% better now. Man, I'm really glad you got into it. Great!!!--Funnybony 22:44, October 19, 2009 (UTC)

Well, you changed the heading of the section I brushed up--and it is closer to your style. But I have a problem with your style, namely: How many times does the word ITSCON have to appear in section headings of an article that, for Chrissakes, is "ITSCON"? Spıke ¬  00:01 20-Oct-09

Dude! Right on. DONE THROUGH OUT. If I accidentally changed any of your edits, please re add, because I don't want to mess with anything you've done. Now I really am off to nap.--Funnybony 00:32, October 20, 2009 (UTC)
Wrong! I don't outrank you; moreover, you outrank me in ITSCON--It's your turf, and your exclusive area of expertise (compared to me); that's why I've been doing only localized edits. (This is not Uncyclopedia dogma, and I'm sure MrN would say I'm being too formal.) You did mess with something I did in changing a section heading; and the solution is to talk about what our respective purposes were, as we did. Spıke ¬  00:44 20-Oct-09

  • Don't need "GBC" in "GBC Theocracy" as I presume there is no other theocracy
  • On Wikipedia, it's no extra capital letters in headings, though someone just told me it's author option here--in any case, be consistent.

Section 3.1 has two problems:

  • Big numbers that can't be true--again, refer to UN:HTBFANJS on Clichés
  • The conclusion, "Pretty neat, eh?" Again, the tone changes from informing to chatting. If you have to say this to tie the joke together for the reader (that cult members will either succeed, or contrive to say they did), then your prose will have failed. Likewise "moronic" in 5.1.
  • In 3.2, the items toward the end of the intro speculate on the mindset of cult members. Again, better to report what they do and lead the reader to the conclusion about whom they hate. The list is part daily activities and part cosmic goals; organize.

I had this notion to append two sentences to the caption of the intro paragraph, but it's more than editorial so I'll leave it to you: "The All-attractive before being murdered. The multiple gunshot wounds to the head left him much less so. Shown here accompanied by the God-head." Leaves it ambiguous as to which head that would be. Spıke ¬  11:05 20-Oct-09

Just so you know...

When editing a page it's generally a good idea to use the Preview button instead of saving the page then editing another part. When you make multiple consecutive edits, you tend to flood Recent Changes with your tiny edits, which annoys people who watch it religiously looking for vandalism (such as myself). In addition this inflates the article's history to epic proportions, and it has a bad effect on your edit count as your contributions get flooded with very small edits, artificially driving up the count. So in the future I advise you to preview your edits and make several changes to an article at once, as opposed to editing a page for each individual change. Thank you. --Andorin Kato 07:24, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks! Live and learn!!--Funnybony 08:43, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

Try to comprehend VFH & Peesville

Appearance: A tiny group of seeming nice mixed with hateful people have banded together and are canceling each other out, and operating on a "handle bias." And from appearances it looks like a little gang of only about 15 to 20 people out of the human race even vote on VFH. Jeez! That's a group almost too small, and which consists of person's with totally opposing takes on humor and / or handle bias. One says "It's a great article!" next guy says, "It's terrible article!" - obviously ONE of them is dead wrong, or just a jerk. And it's about 50/50 from what I can see.--Funnybony 21:08, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

Yes. And this is why we encourage people to vote more on these things. But the truth is that most articles that go up for VFH are knocked down. (I don't know what the ratio is, but it's fairly high.) Most of my earlier articles have been knocked back, and the ones that have gone through to be featured are generally the fourth or fifth revision of them. There is one user who appears to vote against every one of my articles regardless of what I have done with it, and he votes for stuff that I think is patently stupid. The long and the short of it is that there is no magic formula, no simple way of writing that everyone will find funny. The best system we have at the moment to decide on this is democracy. In the words of Churchill "Many forms of Government have been tried and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time." Pup 03:26, 26/10/2009
Drive-by: I can't see something like this without commenting. You said "One says "It's a great article!" next guy says, "It's terrible article!" - obviously ONE of them is dead wrong, or just a jerk." Nope - it's an opinion thing, on something totally subjective, and as such no-one is "right" or "wrong". As long as they aren't voting out of spite, each vote is as valid as the other. Don't forget that. As to the VFH "club" - it changes, y'know? As people join and leave, you'll see the names change - look at VHF pages from even 6 months ago and you'll see different names. Some people vote more than others as well. Trying again after a wait sometimes bears fruit - one of my articles was shot down first nom; I waited 6 months, re-nommed it again, it flew through. The bottom line: humour, like music, is all about taste and opinion: if it's funny to you, then that should be all that matters. --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 15:27, Oct 26

Bit of an issue

Alright, so there's suspicion and speculation going around that it's very possible that you've been using sockpuppets in your dealings here at Uncyc. I don't know extremely much about the situation, but suffice it to say, a checkuser has established that it's very like that this account, and the accounts User:Rsbj66, User:Rsb, and User:Rickbrown (if the names didn't give it the hell away) are all being used by the same person. If this is so, I'd generally ban you for a very long time. However, I'd be willing to relent that manner of action and just ban the other three accounts, if you can honestly tell me the situation behind all this here, and stop whatever it is you're trying to use these socks for. I'd like to try to resolve whatever the issue here is in as calm a manner as possible, but if my message is meant with disrespect or no reply at all within a certain amount of time, I'll not hesitate to instate the ban I previously mentioned. -RAHB 03:54, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

Hi Rahb,

I'm not doing anything of the sort. Years back my first UN was rsbj66 - later I forgot the PW, so made another account, i.e., the account I have been using, as funnybony. And that's it. I later recovered the first rsbj66 PW, but I don't use it or want it. I only use funnybony. You're welcome to cancel rsbj66 acct which I don't use.

The other two accounts you mention "Rickbrown" and "Rsb" are not me, so do as you like. I only use one handle: funnybony. Sorry for the misunderstanding on your part.--Funnybony 08:44, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
No apologies necessary if you're not actually doing anything wrong. As I've said, the parties who've been informing me of this strange situation are closer to whatever is going on (or isn't going on) than I am. Something about pee review and VFH, or mass editing, or something. I really don't know. As an admin though, I'm obligated to of course check out any possible mishappenings that so happen to occur in the wiki. So, now that that's all settled, how about a gin and tonic? -RAHB 09:12, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

VFH & PEE Club: Who should "get fucked"?

Hi there. Now, after false accusations, I would like to make some “genuine” complaint on the tiny VFH and Pee gangs. You have about 7 nice guys, 4 flaming ass holes, 8 other people who disagree completely on humor with the others, and one stone-cold “hitler youth” with a rotten superiority-complex (worth a plug nickel). So that = 20 people in all?? Man, that’s pretty damn weak to be so freakin puffed-up. I have MORE than twice that many employees. So VFH is a few frogs in a well.
One solution is people should state-admit their bias, and not allowed to vote in those categories which they hate, nor against handles they hate. The guys who always vote against handles are doing just that. And he/she are just wrong. So, against biased ass-holes you should have some way to complain or accuse them!!! Even Court Jury Duty works like that...weed out the biased dick-heads.
Somehow you must have QUALITY CONTROL IN YOUR GROUP, RATHER THAN BY THE GROUP. Otherwise a lot of people, with much less patience than me, will say, "FUCK UNCYCLOPEDIA" after a couple bad experiences, and your tiny group will never grow. It is mostly a RUDE EXPERIENCE to be involved. Don't burn people out (which you are doing, no doubt).
Aren't you supposed to be an attractive web site, and not a repulsive one? Personally, getting a feature is NOT going to pay for my goddamn rent, nor anything else. And if I have to swallow much more shit, then I’m eventually going to say, “fuck it!” – and never come back . I wrote 22 articles, all of which are considered shit by half the tiny-group. So I more than did my part.--Funnybony 10:59, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
If I might interject...for the most part the system works fine, but there have been a few notable cases where it has broken down quite dramatically. People will always take comments about their work personally to varying degrees, so people seemingly unqualified to comment making negative remarks is always going to be an issue. This entire site runs on two things....humour and community, and it is find a balance between the two that sometimes causes problems. Interaction between people should be done civilly and with mutual respect AT ALL TIMES.
The Pee Review issue is a complex one. On the one hand we don't want to lose our reviewers (remember everyone here is a volunteer) so they should be commended for the hard work they put into reviewing articles. But there are cases where people without the right skills are let lose on unsuspecting users and their work. Individual differences aside maybe we should impliment a "3 strikes and you're out" approach to user complaints about reviewers (within a fixed timeframe)? The last thing we want to do is to lose people... -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
You hear the man??? "lose people"... Shall I get the shotgun sir? I have the shovels in the car. MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 13:58, Oct 26
Oh dear! Well, If MrN says that ditching Uncyclopedia (for more fruitful fields) means getting blasted with a shotgun and buried in the ground, then I much prefer to live. He, he!! Anyway, 22 articles is a good contribution, and was a load of fun to write, so nothing was fruitless. Now Uncyclops has 22 more fruits on the tree, most on completely diverse subjects, and that ain't bad. But my enthusiasm is shot. So I'm outta motivation. But I'll continue to read Uncyclopedia, and even NOM anything that seems really good.--Funnybony 15:14, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
BTW: Mhaille and Mr N, thanks for caring. Yaosir!!!--Funnybony 15:14, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
Smarts when you get kicked in the balls at VFH eh? I know. Trust me. Here's the thing... If all you wanted when you got here was FA templates on your userpage then your mistake was this: You created too many different articles. You should have just concentrated on getting just maybe 3 or 4 articles really good, but instead you created a lot more articles which are all great contributions to Uncyclopedia. However that implies that what you should be trying to do here is get FA templates on your userpage. That's clearly bullshit. I would much rather have all your articles rather than just 3 FA articles. 2012 failed cos "it was too listy" --- which we knew... and the style was a bit broken... The style was a bit broken because... Me and you have been editing it. ;) I'm probably pissing all over the style and effect you are trying to create, but you are allowing my edits cos you thing... "he's an admin, he knows best"... I don't know best, and you probably know it with some of the edits I made... Sounds like you are going to take a break from writing to cool off for a bit which is a great idea. Meanwhile you should look at UnTunes:Main_Page. Then record us something Mr "Brown".... -- MrN awaits the Un-Tunes... MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 17:07, Oct 26

genuine friends

Dude! You have been a bro, mentor and supporter of my amature work through hot and cold, and you never wrote me a single word that I didn't appreciate the value and good will. But, honestly I didn't even know what was a Sock-Puppet or User-Page, what to speak of a "FA template". I never even had a clue, nor interest in such things.
I'm interested in goals such as making history by being the Royal Gemologist of Thailand, and fame as a world-renowned Futuristic Jewelry designer with branches world-wide, a multi millionaire, a "rock-star" jewelry designer representing Bangkok, like Bulgari represents Italy, plus make a movie about it all, and that's not all. These are my goals, not getting some FA template I never even heard of, on some joke website.
This is because I really am whom I claim to be (I'm actually flattered that some people think so highly of me that they imagine me to be an impostor of myself). Wasn't it Picasso who famously said, "I can paint a phony Picasso as well as anyone!"

I wrote those 22 articles just for fun, and then (without really knowing any rules) I nominated them just to try and once 'cross the finish line' for some insignificant self-satisfaction, that no-one I know ever-even heard of.

But I eventually found the finish line to be nearly-impossible to cross, in spite of all my attempts, this caused me to re-evaluate the "finish line". And I realized that it was materially worthless and meaningless, if not totally insignificant towards the real ambitions and goals I aspire for. So I just decided it was not worth the effort and aggravation.. It's kind of like digging a ditch. A ditch-digger works his ass-off, takes shit from the boss, and gets paid peanuts. So I'm too smart to dig ditches. Specially when my real value is in climbing to the summit of Mount Everest.

Music and UnMusic

As to UNmusic, I made my REAL music bones before most Uncyclopedians were even born. And I rest on those laurels, which's still sold, played, and loved even today. Besides, I can't record music without my impossible to replace band members. I'll never play music with musicians of a lesser talent - for, as we say, "A band is only as good as it's drummer!"
Again thanks for really caring. When Jeff Beck recently was inducted in the R&R Hall of Fame, he told the audience, "I want to thank all those who helped me!" Then he flipped the bird and said, "And also thanks to those who did not!" - Best wishes, always--Funnybony 18:43, October 26, 2009 (UTC)
You can't record something? Come on. Be serious. If you have a computer you can record somethin. Come on man. Give us somethin! As for if Uncyc is pointless... It's a method of getting your creations and ideas to people. Just like music is. Sounds like you don't think music is pointless. MrN MrN9000SouthParksmall.jpg 18:49, Oct 26
No, Music is not pointless. And Wikipedia is not pointless. I'm only interested in "points".--Funnybony 18:59, October 26, 2009 (UTC)

I'm an ex-musician (although I'm feeling the urge to return to it) but for me the act of creation, whether it is music, a website, online application, design, painting, drawing, article (comedy or otherwise) or anything else I am involved in gives me the same feeling. The act of creation is a sacred thing, whether here or elsewhere. If my articles have brought a smile to someone on this planet then that is enough for me. If my design work has helped a businesses or individuals to project a more professional image for themselves then that too is enough for me. I try to take the same level of care in any work which I am party to, having a joy in your work means that you never "work" a day in your life. -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

That's all that we do on here for the most part - play. I write my best when I'm writing something that is just a random though that I found funny and I wanted to share with people. If I'm writing to win an award or the like I actually don't perform as well. As long as we do what we do for the joy it brings us, who cares about the rest? Pup 01:46, 27/10/2009
When it comes to awards, they are kind of like the difference between an empty hall, or a packed house. There is nothing more depressing than playing to an empty house. I'm assuming this, of course, because we never had that happen.--Funnybony 04:51, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

Never played to a packed house. I've gotten awards, but I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. I will never be happy that it is the best that I can make it. Pup 05:15, 27/10/2009

Well, packed house is great but not necessary. Still audience IS necessary, even if it's small. At least in terms of expressing your music for appreciation of others. Recording is the best for this purpose, because a great performance is hard to repeat very often - especially VERY often. Hey, where can I hear it? Do you have a MySpace Music Page?--Funnybony 05:38, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
You misunderstood. (Ha!) I've never played to a packed house because I have the musical talent of a whippet. I get booed at Karaoke. Pup 06:04, 27/10/2009
Never underestimate the musical abilities of a "whippet" - in some countries they are known for musical talents. For example, the song, Whippet, by the well-known whippets, Devo.--Funnybony 06:57, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

Check out 65 year old Jeff Beck this year - LIVE

Jeff Beck - 2nd time RnR Hall of Fame this year

The lead solo that Jeff Beck played on Mr You're a better man than I" - was the invention of lead guitar. So for me it cannot be surpassed by anything since.

And then Jeff's solo on Shapes of Things - ends with a power chord that is so freakin' "metal" that the world had to dream up the term "power-metal" just to describe it.

In spite of his age of 65, Jeff just gets better and better, until he left Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton to whither in the jaws of time, and though he had quit the Yardbirds he still just gets better and better - after taking on the risky guitar heros destiny clock.

The name of his last album was simply "JEFF" without his picture even. Just print JEFF on anything musical and EVERYONE knows Jeff Beck. If you lookup the word "innovative" in the dictionary there is simply a picture of Jeff Beck.

Jeff Beck is worshiped by Joe Satriani. Even in 2009.

So, of course, when they made the satire movie "This is Spinel Tap" over 20 years back, the only recognizable member was lead guitarist Jeff Beck look-alike Nigel (actually played to a T by an American actor).

Jeff Beck is the coolest and best guitarist ever, even now in 2009 (as shown above).

Clapton, Beck, Page (all formally Yardbirds) ARE the 3 guitar gods. But only JEFF remains a real "guitar god" even today..--Funnybony 13:55, October 27, 2009 (UTC)

Pee reviewed your article

I did it without knowing it's history or knowing who you are. Now I feel a bit silly considering you probably know more about Hinduism than me. You really should use this knowledge and make it show in the article, while making it accessible at the same time. I also noticed that you have problems with VFH, and couldn't resist giving you my opinion because I just love that. Not that I'm qualified to tell you how to get featured, but one thing I noticed is that FAs have a consistent, restrained tone. While reading certain articles, I get a feeling that "this article contains prose that sounds like an FA". Articles with prose like this fail VFH too, but articles without this kind of prose almost never make it. So I think tightening your prose is the first step to writing a more featurable article. ~Scriptsiggy.JPGPlease talk to me. Please. MUN CUN RotM 18:17, Jan 26, 2010

In reply to your reply on my talk page, if you don't want an encyclopedic tone I suggest an article that is "in the style of". Meaning, pick a character and stick to it. I personally really like encyclopedic articles, however. Here's a joke that I thought of just now (sorry if it's bad): Soma gave the Hindu god Indra enough power to slay the dragon Vrtra. It also cured his back pain. (carisoprodol is used to cure back pain). ~Scriptsiggy.JPGPlease talk to me. Please. MUN CUN RotM 19:33, Jan 26, 2010
