Please contribute to Baked Potato[edit]

Trying to get a new featured article to end the 12 nights of potato. It is Baked Potato. Please contribute in whatever way you like (be bold, add new sections, change text, add images). Would like to get it featured as rapidly as possible. ShabiDOO 23:09, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

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.

Yours, HappySmile (talk) 10:40, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Hi! Now you can use {{User:HappySmile/sig}} to sign your posts instead of ~~~~. And my signature is Jabberwock (talk) 13:44, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
But how do you deal with the date and the time?   {{User:HappySmile/sig}} + ??
Well, I still use ~~~~. You can go to Special:Preferences and find "signature" and change it to {{User:HappySmile/sig}}. --Jabberwock (talk) 00:22, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay then, thank you! --User:HappySmile/sig (talk) 12:19, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
Oops, what's this bug? How about now? {{SUBST:User:HappySmile/sig}} (talk) 12:22, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

12:23, 13 January 2021 (UTC)


So finally, I complete my significant. HappySmile(talk) 12:34, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

Wow! --Jabberwock (talk) 13:44, 13 January 2021 (UTC)
That is the least gay signature this website has ever seen! ¡¡¡Ole!!! ShabiDOO 14:06, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

== p



is just a letter! and if you refresh the page...


e is just a letter. But when you refresh this page, the magic thing will happen. Look at the first letter of this line!

--HappySmile(talk) 13:34, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

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]


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)

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
