Hi, 2520.[edit]

How are you? I'm getting busies (busy-er) and busies now. How do you deal with "--Jabberwock (talk) 12:57, 27 December 2020 (UTC)" and make it to colorful? I'm looking forward to your reply.

It needs to use {{RandomLetter}} that is made by me. -HappySmile(talk) 13:40, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
Oops, there is already a random letter template: {{Randomletter}}. You can find information on its page. So your template is redundant. --Jabberwock (talk) 13:54, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
So... What should I do next? Moreover, if I type {{randomletter}} then, the system will give me whose templete, mine or his/hers? --HappySmile(talk) 14:04, 14 January 2021 (UTC)
{{randomletter}} is same as {{Randomletter}}. The capitalization of the first letter in the template name does not matter, but the rest does. So, if someone makes the template {{RAnDoMlEtTeR}}, it would be the same as {{rAnDoMlEtTeR}}, but different from {{Randomletter}} and {{randomletter}}.--Jabberwock (talk) 04:23, 15 January 2021 (UTC)

Collaboration on Warring States Period?[edit]

Hi Jabberwock, since you are Chinese, would you like to contribute to Warring States Period (战国时代)? I've done the start and the unification by Qin, but there is a lot of stuff in the middle that I haven't finished. The Battle of Changping (长平之战) would be a great place to expand, but that's just my suggestion. Feel free to edit and remove my content if you have better ideas. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  10:25, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

Sorry, but I don't know much about history. Jabberwock (talk) 10:49, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

My opinion on the Newpedia appearance[edit]

Hi!

I just wanted to say, I really like some elements of Newpedia, but I really dislike others. This is a summary on what I have to say about it:

  • Notably, Newpedia breaks the Timeless skin and the Monobook skin, and seems to be exclusively compatible with the Vector (default) skin. Honestly, having the page only appear fine to some people is a big no-no; I would personally strongly not recommend going with the Newpedia layout on a "full" basis because of this.
  • Newpedia also seems to removes the search bar, for some reason. Another big no no, since navigation is essential to, like, everything.
  • I will admit that template navigation is slightly more complicated, for me at least, whilst using the Newpedia layout. For example, pointing at Template:Sex, there practically are no hints for the fact that the template uses drop-down boxes, and the "dual cylinder" appearance kind of looks off to me. Personally, I would've favored two rectangular templates, with a slightly less compromising amount of space in between the text entries in the drop-downs; templates aren't really designed to have hundreds of things crammed within. That's at least how I feel about it.
  • I do really like the "Featured Article" boxes at the top of the page. It could be easily repurposed for use with other skins, since the standard "FEATURED" box just doesn't look that well on mobile and alternative platforms.
  • Informational templates, such as Template:FA, look fine. It's not perfect, and the cylindrical appearance still kind of looks off to me, but I feel like a rectangular version of the same template (with a golden left border) would be absolutely perfect. The "colored templates" element though is really useful, and I would love to see that ported to other templates eventually.
  • The rounded corners for images... eh. I'm not 100% sure about it; even though it looks a little more "friendly", it sort of looks off, especially for a website designed to parody an encyclopedia.

So, that's all what I have to say about the Newpedia layout, at least for now. I wouldn't recommend it to be widely deployed, simply because of the first two points I mentioned, but several design cues from it can be used on Vector and other skins.

If you have anything to tell me, feel free to reply! Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  11:39am  January 21, 2021

"Search" is here. But I really don't know how to create a box in which you can directly input and search.
For alternative skins, the problem is in the Blank space template. I used that template in my newpedialayout template. It works well with the default Vector skin, but it doesn't get rid of everything in other skins. Go to Nihilism with the Monobook skin and see the effect of Template:Blank space there. For the search bar, I really don't know how to put it onto there. So I put a link to Special:Search in the black bar. Jabberwock (talk) 10:58, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

<input type="search" name="search" placeholder="Search Uncyclopedia" title="Search Uncyclopedia [alt-shift-f]" accesskey="f" id="searchInput" tabindex="1" autocomplete="off" class="webfonts-changed"> <input type="hidden" value="Special:Search" name="title" class="webfonts-changed"> <input type="submit" name="go" value="Go" title="Go to a page with this exact name if it exists" id="searchButton" class="searchButton webfonts-changed">

I am trying...

It's all good, I'm glad you're trying! Templates love to break stuff; Vector will always be Vector. I honestly think that the best way for Newpedia to exist would be to have it be eventually transformed into a "skin" for Vector, via "custom CSS"; it could define custom CSS classes that toggle features exclusive to Newpedia. Like this, anyone hwo wants Newpedia cankn install it, whilst allowing people who prefer old-school stuff to continue using the old stuff. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  11:03am  January 21, 2021
So how should I add something into a page with custom CSS? I actually know little about CSS. I only know how to mess up a page with it.Jabberwock (talk) 11:28, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
I like the aesthetic of it. I thought it was a neat experiment. It does take some getting used to, but if it's screwing anything up, at least you tried. Black-2.jpg PF4Eva, the President of Imagination Vote for me My tax returns 13:45, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
I quite like the style (at least it's better than my CSS), but it doesn't work well with RedWarn: the icons are not designed for the white text on dark background, so hang around awkwardly and block the links. It's probably not your problem, but that's something you'll need to take into consideration. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  15:58, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
I am considering moving the RedWarn icons to the tools section. JJP...MASTER![talk to] JJP... master? 23:57, 30 January 2021 (UTC)

Templar knights[edit]

Hey, it seems you've made some pretty drastic changes to the Template:Alphabet and Template:Sex-templates on your own. These templates are quite widely used around the site and they shouldn't go through complete makeovers without the community's consensus through a public forum vote or such. And especially so because - considering the edit histories - you seem to experiment with the code with multiple edits, which then directly affects every single page these templates are put on and could potentially break them.
I'm notifying you now that I'm going to revert your edits back to the original revisions since these kind of edits should really have to be discussed beforehand. You're obviously free to make these kind of experiments as separate templates, however. Just please don't go around messing with these kind of widely used templates, ok? Thanks, Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Zzz...morning? 13:04, 21 January, 2021 (UTC)

Oh Jesus, I just realized that you've been changing not only several other important widely used templates with your newstyle-code, but the complete outlook of Among Us and V. and a few other featured articles as well. I know you mean well and that you're proud of your code, but you absolutely must not do something this drastic without consulting other members beforehand. Cat the Colourful (Feed me!) Zzz Zzz...morning? 13:25, 21 January, 2021 (UTC)
@Jabberwock: Pssst, on that... I would recommend that you duplicate the page's contents before experimenting with them, forming a sandbox of sorts. For example, you can copy-paste Among Us to something, like, Among Us/Newpedia. That'll give you space to experiment with the Newpedia layout, without breaking anything! (Wikipedia also uses such sandboxes and drafts for most purposes.) Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  02:42pm  January 21, 2021

On the newpedia skin[edit]

Hi!

I just wanted to say that I added <skin>Vector</skin> to the template for Newstyle CSS, in order to make sure no pages break simply because someone is using Monobook (e.g. Zombiebaron) or Timeless (e.g. me).

Have a good day! Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  01:00pm  January 22, 2021

Wow! Why didn't I know that before? I was so stupid. No one before told me I could do that.--Jabberwock (talk) 14:10, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

Template:Algebra/poor[edit]

So, I remember you saying on Cat's talk page that your English isn't very good (I still disagree, btw). Anyway I made a minor correction to Template:Algebra/poor. At least in America, we never say "flunk out an exam". We say "flunk an exam", "flunk a class", or "flunk out of a class". It's possible other English-speaking places say it differently, and of course, feel free to revert my edit for any reason. Cheers. MrX blow me 00:12, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Thank you. In fact, that's exactly the reason I flunked my English exam. --Jabberwock (talk) 00:28, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
Haha my pleasure, and I’m sure you’d do better on an English exam now. MrX blow me 00:42, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

Xi Jinping[edit]

Hey, so as you may have seen, I went ahead and moved Xi Jinping to my user space. 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/living-in-China Uncyclopedians, but no pressure, no rush. Cheers. MrX blow me 22:39, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Apostrophe[edit]

You might have already seen this on my talk page, but just in case pings aren't working for you either right now, I figured I'd leave it here too. I just finally got a chance to take a closer look at Apostrophe. Great stuff! I added a few things. Hope you like them. Of course, feel free to change and/or remove any of them. Cheers. MrX blow me 21:07, 6 February 2021 (UTC)

Hey I also added a section on the glottal stop. I think it's a great article but it's really short and could use another section. Feel free to revert the edit if it doesn't fit in with the style of the article (it's your work and there won't be the slightest of hard feelings if you undo) or change it however you like.

Math topic[edit]

Ok, come on, you're obviously not a noob at anything math related. Lol. MrX blow me 08:31, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Could you help me prove that there are no integers x, y such that 2y-3x=41? --Jabberwock (talk) 08:35, 11 February 2021 (UTC)
Looking into it lol. Full disclosure I got a 5 on the AP Calculus AB test in 2005, probably totally useless now lololol. MrX blow me 08:41, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

We need to have a discussion about what it is to grow up, your body is changing, a lot, every day, and your mom and I are so proud of you. But you're probably mainly wondering about why no integers x, y such that 2y-3x=41. And well, you see....
Ok, I will DEF continue to look into this! I hope this helps as being funny for now. As for the math proof, which am far more interested in, 希望你明白,你是个特别厉害的有意思的人。MrX blow me 08:51, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Opinion on nupedia[edit]

Ok, so my opinion on the nupedia is as follows:

Happy Monkey Competition Topic[edit]

HMC2021logo.png

Hey. Ready to dig deep into your creative juices? Your topic for the Happy Monkey Competition is:
List of Equipment of the average Uncyclopedian editor.
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.

Huggle message[edit]

Hi _Jabberwock!

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 Jabberwock!

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.
