Hey Hipponias. Good work so far. Keep it going. Be bold. Don't be afraid to make cuts with material you think is defficient. Add stuff to. Even if its just a concept or idea (even if the idea doesn't really pan out putting some scraps of material could help another writer expand on it)! Any addition helps and you've certainly made good additions so far! ShabiDOO 13:07, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

I'm trying to get this featured in time to end the 12 nights of potato. So please make any additional edits and vote for it (only if you think its feature pressure). Time is super limited (less than 48 hours) ShabiDOO 23:17, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for the good work and funny writing on the baked potato article. You helped us feature an article in only two days!!! You now have two collab credits (one full writing credit). All you have to do is feature 2 more articles (or a combination of features and collabs) and you'll be inducted into the hall of shame!!! I have no doubt you can do it! ShabiDOO 12:50, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
@Shabidoo: Huh? My other article, Extinctionism, I wrote by myself. MrX did contribute a paragraph and gave me some tips, but I think that still counts as full credit for me, as I wrote most of it. Also, UnPoetia:Triste et malum est is going to get featured on the 13th, so I'll have 2.5 FAs soon. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  12:57, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
Ahh yes you are totally right. I was basing everything of what I saw on your userpage. Hey if you'd like to get that .5 credit take a look here in this section. Back in 2011 we had a week long competition to spit out a featurable article. It was Orchids and we wrote a pretty good one but it just needs one more section and a little editing here and there. I think we could get it featured easily. What do you think? ShabiDOO 13:18, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Copyright violations[edit]

While we have to be wary of UN:BITE, copyright violations(UN:(C)) takes precedence. Violating copyright issues can get Uncyclopedia in legal jeproady; any copyvio not providing any initial attribution should be deleted. Copying within Uncyclopedia without providing attribution is an issue. Persistent copyright offenders will be banned; so it is very important we deal with these seriously. Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 17:57, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

The Creative Commons ShareAlike License 2.0 requires the author(s) to be given attribution. Boston, Massachusetts, which Wikipedia Be Sucking copied to Beantown, is still a redirect to that article. The original history is still intact on that page. Therefore, the page does not violate the CC-BY-NC-SA, as the editors of that page are attributed in the page history. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  18:46, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
I just made a null edit and left in the edit summary saying content copied. Saying "As a Bostonian, this is funnier" does not quite do the job. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 18:52, 21 January 2021 (UTC)


I have finally peed your article. You are welcome to check it out. I have left some improvement comments. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 16:06, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

"Disruptive bug"[edit]

I saw in the recent changes feed that you commented out RedWarn due to a "disruptive bug", but can you clarify what said disruptive bug is? JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 15:46, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

For some reason, the RedWarn settings popup comes up every time I open an Uncyclopedia page. I can close it, but it won't let me save changes, so it comes up every time. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  15:56, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
If the thing says "Congratulations! You've successfully installed RedWarn, the user-friendly counter-vandalism tool.", you can just scroll to the bottom and click "apply settings and continue". If it doesn't say that, please let me know. JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 16:00, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
It does say that, but the button doesn't do anything. I'll try again. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  16:05, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
It works now. Does the setup page load from Wikipedia? ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  16:09, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Yes. JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 16:09, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
I think I know what happened then. Also, can you use nosubst for your sig so the code doesn't clog up pages? Just follow the instructions on the template. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  16:18, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Is this better? JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 16:26, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Yep, that's good. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  16:30, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Xi Jinping[edit]

Hey, so as you may have seen, we had a very short article for Xi Jinping, then I moved Xi Jinping to my user space to avoid deletion. It's now at User:MrX/Xi Jinping. I'm not sure when I'll be able to work on it, almost for sure by the end of the month, but I'll probably try and work on Scientology first and then Joe Biden also inspired me to write an UnNews article today. Anyway, please feel free to add/change anything in Xi's article. Uncyc should definitely have an article about the world's largest country's leader, especially since we can expect him to be around for a while thanks to his elimination of term limits. And we could definitely use the help of any and all Chinese/Chinese-speaking Uncyclopedians, but no pressure, no rush. Cheers. MrX blow me 22:41, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Forum vote[edit]

Hey Hipponias, don't know if you noticed, but when you moved your vote on that forum, it somehow also copied Gale5050's against vote and duplicated it ahead of your for vote. Looks like it's all square now, no big deal, we all make mistakes. Cheers. MrX blow me 21:05, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I didn't realise that, thanks for telling me! I encountered an edit conflict twice, so I was getting quite frustrated. I probably copied the text over by accident in the edit conflict boxes. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  21:37, 3 February 2021 (UTC)
Yeah that's what I figured. Edit conflicts are annoying. MrX blow me 21:56, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Collaboration on Apostrophe[edit]

I have written some funny things in the article Apostrophe. It says that the apostrophe is an animal. Would you like to write more about it? Feel free to reject. --Jabberwock (talk) 03:29, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

No need now, I can write it myself. --Jabberwock (talk) 03:41, 4 February 2021 (UTC)

Regarding your edit of that one Chinese-Character's talkpage that happened like a minute ago[edit]

Do you know how to write Chinese? If so, that's so cool! ---WohMi, the best damn duelist on this website (talk) 16:48, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

@WohMi: Yeah, I have a Chinese input method on my computer, although I haven't written anything physically for quite a while. The original text in Chinese actually meant "Chinese people are very poor (if they are poor)" instead of "my Chinese is poor" so I had to fix it.
P.S. If you thought the characters in their username were complicated, it's because they are. Their userpage says "My name only has difficult Chinese characters". I'm fluent in Chinese and I don't even know the half of their meanings. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  18:06, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Happy Monkey Competition Topic[edit]


Hey. Ready to dig deep into your creative juices? Your topic for the Happy Monkey Competition is:
 Contract bridge.
Please write an article on this topic in your userspace/sandbox (if you don't know how to do so just reply here and I'll help you set it up). You have one week starting right now to complete an article. It can be anything (you can write a standard article, something off the wall, a news piece, an unbook...whatever you like). Remember that you are being judged quite strictly and equally in points by three categories: Originality, creativity (with the topic) and humour. Being original is as important as being funny (you can reference other works if you like...just do it in an original way). So go outside of your comfort box, be bold and write something you've never written before. Most importantly have fun. Happy monkey wishes you luck and pisses all over your face. ShabiDOO 21:18, 21 February 2021 (UTC)

What?! That's literally the topic I chose! I thought I wouldn't get that. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  21:23, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
CorrectedShabiDOO 21:25, 21 February 2021 (UTC)
Hey there. You still have until Sunday to write. Hope you can finish an article :) ShabiDOO 00:37, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Huggle message[edit]

Hi _Hipponias!

Uncyclopedia has been on a growth spurt as of recently, and as such, we are introducing a brand new feature to the table tonight: Huggle! Yes, the same tool you know and love from Wikipedia has made its way into the Uncyclomedia Foundation's impenetratable walls.

Huggle makes it easy to revert vandalism, leave messages to users and basically speedily process edits here on Uncyclopedia. You may also use it to block users and do other things, if you are a sysop!

To use Huggle, you must be both extended-confirmed (having 500 edits and 30 days' existence), and you must also have rollback rights. If you are an admin who does not have either of these rights, feel free to grant them to yourself. Some features, such as page protection and user blocking, are locked behind the walls of adminship.

If you wish to install Huggle, feel free to do so now! For assistance, please contact either JJPMaster or Kev, who are jointly responsible for this implementation of Huggle.

Have a wonderful day, and may Sophia bless you, Charlie the bot (talk) 01:39, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

The Happy Monkey Competition is ending soon[edit]

Hi Hipponias!

The Happy Monkey Competition 2021 ends in less than 22 hours! Please make sure that you article is sufficiently good in quality by the time this time limit elapses, since your article will be judged, regardless of quality, at the aforementioned time.

Remember that you will be judged on:

  • Originality
  • Humour
  • Creativity, with the topic

Good luck! May Sophia be with you, Charlie the bot (talk) 02:07, 28 February 2021 (UTC)

Protect from vandalism[edit]

Many pages protected from vandalism. Why? Тима Мурашко 10:33, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

It's because they are extremely popular (e.g. AAAAAAAAA!), visible (e.g. Main Page), or they are frequently vandalized. Once you get autoconfirmed (reach 10 edits), you'll be able to edit pages with semi-protection, which is the most common type of protection. If you want a page unprotected, ust ask Kev on his talk page. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  10:46, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Reverted edits[edit]

A few notes:

  • The info template I used is less bytes than what is there now. If you don't like the look of it I understand, it's your article so it's up to you. Keep in mind that this is not Wikipedia, and we don't necessarily care about looking 'encyclopedic.'
  • The China template needs to be alphabetized, if you don't like the link to the Ming Dynasty you should add a section where it is appropriate to link to such things. Keep in mind that it should be a place for all China-related articles, not just articles that you like or approve of.
    • The yellow that was used in the template previously was illegible and the overall design of the template is somewhat deprecated for mobile development going forward.
    • The png image used in the template is actually the wrong format, it should be a jpeg or have a transparent background.

 –  User talk:Zana Dark User:Zana Dark Sheenicon.gif (ooh!) (aah!) ...·º•ø®@» LEG CUN GUN DUN 12:38, 4 March 2021

The reason I reverted the infobox change was because it looked off (at least to me) and a proper infobox looks better. We are not Wikipedia but we do parody them and having some elements look similar to theirs is beneficial.
I know the navbox design looks off on mobile, but I don't have the expertise/time to change it to a mobile-friendly format. If you can do so, please do (by the way, thanks for the gradient!). I've added Ming Dynasty to the 'culture' category and I hope that's appropriate.
Go ahead with converting the png to jpeg and alphabetize the list, I don't mind at all. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  12:53, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
I like the new infobox. It feels cozy. --WohMi, the Dueling King (talk) 13:27, 4 March 2021 (UTC)
Thank you, Wikipedia has actually updated their code to be more like mine since I coded it in 2009. The taxoboxes versus infoboxes is a debate over a decade old. Ultimately we are moving from grey to color. I wish I got paid for this stuff.  –  User talk:Zana Dark User:Zana Dark Sheenicon.gif (ooh!) (aah!) ...·º•ø®@» LEG CUN GUN DUN 20:12, 4 March 2021

You did it! 3rd Place![edit]


Hey Hipponias! First thanks for participating in the Happy Monkey 2021 Competition. Was a lot of fun this year. You got a VERY respectable third place. Your article on your clear misunderstandings about contract bridge made us laugh out loud.

You article Contract Bridge scored 82/120 points.

You can see the full scores and feed back for your article here.

Full competition scores and results are here.

Consider telling 1st and 2nd place how awful their articles were and how you totally should have won!

Thanks again and happy monkey lovingly farts all over your article. ShabiDOO 10:51, 7 March 2021 (UTC)

Happy Monkey Competition articles[edit]

Hi Hipponias! I just wanted to remind you all that you may now freely move the articles you have written for the Happy Monkey Competition '21 into mainspace, and subsequenty, say, throw 'em into VFH or something. Everything's now in your control!

Congratulations to Scofield, Cat and Hipponias for scoring the most points this year! The articles this year were of very high quality; I sure do hope that you can replicate such impressive performance once Poo Lit Surprise comes along! Honorable mention goes to WohMi, who managed to score the most points per word used: 5.8 points per word!

Have a great day, and may Sophia bless you! Charlie the bot (talk) 00:49, 8 March 2021 (UTC)


Hey Hippidoderoo! I haven't seen you around in a bit. Hope all is well and you come back soon! ShabiDOO 12:12, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Reverted edits...[edit]

Hello, I'm sorry but I do not like the way the {{Q}} template looks on the mobile website, it is a blatant ripoff of Rasmussen College. Since Marmot is one of my articles, I prefer to use the {{nicequote}} template. Perhaps you can look into why the regular quote template renders with such oversized text across the mobile website, it is garish. Thank you.  –  User talk:Zana Dark User:Zana Dark Sheenicon.gif (ooh!) (aah!) ...·º•ø®@» LEG CUN GUN DUN 04:55, 30 March 2021

Sorry for rollbacking your edit. I was on mobile and I was trying to click something else. IMO the quote template looks fine on mobile. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  07:50, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

I saw you got rid of a biiiig chunk on the page (around 5,000+ bytes). Just wondering if you have a specific plan for it. If not, I'll probably add some of the deleted materials back, but I won't override your new additions. Thanks! WohMi, the Dueling King (talk) 22:07, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
