Hi Kevin. By close I meant "withdraw" the feature. I'd like to work on it and try a second attempt for VFH. So you ought not to feature it (it hasn't gotten sufficient votes and there is enough constructive criticsm to warrant reworking it.

Semi-serious question[edit]

Is there an equivalent of revdel or oversight on Uncyclopedia? JJP...MASTER![talk to]JJP... master? 18:27, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

There is! A "revision deletion" system is used in a few cases here by administrators and bureaucrats, notably to hide IP addresses of users whom accidentally ended up logged out during an edit, or particularly flagrant cases of vandalism and/or spambottery. For example, the article "Information"'s history shows one edit that is rev-deleted: the edit was made by a spambot.
An oversight role is also present, but unlike Wikipedia, where there is a dedicated "oversight" role, the oversight permission is given to sysadmins (Uncyclopedia server hosts) such as Lyrithya. Just like Wikipedia, neither administrators nor (ordinarily) bureaucrats are unable to view an edit hidden by oversight. Oversight is very seldom used on Uncyclopedia; the only example that I can think of is Uncyclopedia's press release when it departed from Wikia in 2013, where it was used to hide the real-life identities of administrators Zombiebaron and Lyrithya.
Hope that clears things up! If you ever need a "revision deletion" edit to be made visible, feel free to ask an admin about it! If you need an article or an edit to be rev-deleted, feel free to ask an admin about it too! Don't bother asking about oversight though... it's very, very seldom used. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  06:36pm  January 2, 2021
@Kev: Makes sense, but now I realize that the sysadmin right actually refers to sysadmin in the sense of Wikimedia, instead of just "admin x3". JJP...MASTER![talk to]JJP... master? 18:41, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
@JJPMaster: Kinda, but I forgot to mention... Bureaucrats can accord themselves the sysadmin right temporarily in order to meddle with these things too. Sysadmin status is more like an "Admin x2.5", if bureaucrat counts as "admin x2". Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  06:47pm  January 2, 2021
@Kev: And on that note, is there an equivalent of requests for undeletion or deletion review? JJP...MASTER![talk to]JJP... master? 19:44, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
@JJPMaster: Usually, for undeletion, asking an admin on their talk page is the quickest way to have a page restored. Owing to Uncyclopedia's smaller size, there is no equivalent to a dedicated "deletion review" page (unlike Wikipedia). Undeletion criteria tends to be quite broad: even reasons as simple as "I want to see what this page used to look like" are fine. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  08:03pm  January 2, 2021
@Kev: nth question here: is there an equivalent of AN/I. Ban patrol is more like AIV in my opinion, because it is not a discussion page, but is there a discussion page with a similar purpose? JJP...MASTER![talk to]JJP... master? 17:45, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
@JJPMaster: As of right now, there isn't really an equivalent... the easiest way to discuss about a problematic user is to directly ask an administrator on their talk page, or contact one of them via Discord. Often admins will have chats together talking about what would be an appropriate punishment for a given person. Feel free to also give warnings on users' talk pages, just like Wikipedia -- and contact the admins as much as you need! Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  05:51pm  January 3, 2021
On a slightly unrelated note, can you hide the IP using RevDel on [1] as well as the edit summary on [2]. I decided I actually care about internet privacy and people not knowing my IP, and I hope this can reduce people knowing my exact geolocation. --Gale5050 complain about me! 19:48, 5 January 2021 (UTC)

Please give me AWB access[edit]

Using a template not from the Template namespace[edit]

Hi, I have a small problem. On the page Instruction manual I have made a subpage to be the specialized section title. It is transcluded (so, {{Instruction manual/title}}). This worked perfectly in userspace, but when I moved it to mainspace, a Template: prefix was automatically added, meaning that the transcluded template became Template:Instruction manual/title, which of course does not exist. Is there a way to force the software to transclude a template not from the Template namespace? ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  12:23, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Abuse filter question[edit]

How come some filters are "unappealable"? And how come some are? Also, shouldn't the template {{unblock|your reason here}} be there so they know how to appeal. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 01:38, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Unappealable filters are generally speaking, so precise that no one minus the intended target will be huffed. For example, filter 44 setects one specific website, and filter 66 detects one of 4 banned usernames. Unappealable means "the ip is banned for 3 months without talk page access". Basically, it's only when the likelihood of false positives is absolutely zero that it can be unappealable. That's why the more "general" filters, such as Viagra spam, are meant to be appealable. Blocked users can both request an unblock via freeform request or via the unblock template if it is appealable. Hopefully this clears things up. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  01:47am  January 12, 2021
What are the 4 banned usernames? What is the website? I am curious as I can't see them myself. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 01:58, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
So.... the website in question that's banned, not mentioning the TLD, is 17ebook; the banned usernames are SteffenSchoenhei, FlorenceMcClinto, TeresitaKnowlton, and EricaFitzgibbons. The first one, SteffenSchoenhei, hit the filter a grand total of 37 times so far (that's 37 IPs blocked!), so this is essentially the equivalent of an LTA filter on Wikipedia. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  02:51am  January 12, 2021
So, some abuse filters can have false positives(so therefore appealable), and a few are so narrow there is no collateral. But why aren't obvious users like "IAmASpamBot" or "Spambot" aren't blocked. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 19:56, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
It's because I, as well as most admins, tend to use a reactive approach to abuse filter creation, instead of a proactive one: instead of preventing all spambots before they can hit the filter, which takes much longer, new rules are created in order to fight back every extra spambot. So few spambots attempt to create "obvious" spambot accounts, choosing to all go with pseudo-real life nmaes (almost MLM style). Therefore, whenever a spambot somehow manages to slip past the filter, another rule is written to prevent that type of spambot from coming back; that's how the Viagra with cyanide, Academic fraud, and many other filters were born. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  08:16pm  January 12, 2021
"EricaFitzgibbons" is a real name of a doctor, and 17ebooks is a very dangerous website. But why those 4 names, and not other real names? I'm confused. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 20:33, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
It's simply because those came up most often in the abuse log, back when a filter disabling real-life-like names was active. Nowadays, the filter is basically no longer useful at all simply bevause of how Zombiebaron chose to disable the long name filter, which asked users to message an admin to have an account created under such a username. For short: once again, it's based on reactive measures. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  09:08pm  January 12, 2021

Gale5050, we're here to write comedy, not policy. We do not have the same legal concerns as Wikipedia. Almost every single article we have about a living person contains a plethora of what they call BLP violations. We call them jokes. MrX blow me 23:09, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
TL;DR: If it's a BLP and it has no humor whatsoever, OR only has an {{infobox person}} with no other text, it counts as spam.

"In September 2017, Trump f**ked with Hurricane Maria, causing it to steer away from the US and hit Puerto Rico", while it is somewhat funny, is also extremely degrading.

I feel that should absolutely be allowed to stand. What article is that in? MrX blow me 23:54, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
I'll give a short answer: if it attacks another user, or derives its humor from a means so unrealistic and nonhumorous that it could be considered insulting to people who normally would laugh at such a thing, it probably is part of that. So... for the statement Gale said, it could be rewritten as: "Trump threw a tantrum so loud that it forcibly steered Hurricane Maria towards Puerto Rico, and away from the continental United States."

I'll just state it real quick: Uncyclopedia does not have any de jure age requirement. However, its contents are de facto 13+, 16+ or 18+ depending on the page. Disclosing your age is a very bad idea, anywhere on the internet, so as such I would strongly recommend avoiding doing so. The only use I can really see for putting your age on the internet is on dating sites. And yeah, revdeling now. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  06:49pm  January 19, 2021
Actually, granted how the page has not been tinkered with in quite some time, I'll ask them via talk page. It's not illegal to share your age on Uncyclopedia. It's just not recommended. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  06:54pm  January 19, 2021
They have not edited since November 18. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 18:59, 19 January 2021 (UTC)
I'll revdel it in 7 days if no reply is heard. As for now, the date has already been removed.

Of the Year awards[edit]

Yo, sorry to keep pestering you, and I hope this doesn't look like I'm campaigning for votes, but Uncyclopedia:Writer of the Year is fully protected so only admins can vote. Also, while that award project page and Uncyclopedia:Uncyclopedian of the Year both say that the winners will be announced at the end of January probably/maybe, perhaps we could make them both end February 8th? In line with the Top 10? Just some thoughts. Cheers. MrX blow me 20:11, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

@MrX: I've unlocked WoTY, and both UoTY and WoTY now mention February 8th. Don't worry, the page wasn't meant to be protected in the first place! So... 'tis done. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  02:10pm  January 20, 2021

Please delete[edit]

Talk: This page (honestly) really does not exist and if you dare to click on this link you will be sent into a black hole of endless nothingness where you will be tempted to edit pages that do not exist which will only get in you in even more trouble. as main page is deleted (enwiki G8) and please salt the talk page with create = sysop as no need for it and it may cause trolling. --Gale5050 complain about me!

@Gale5050: Honestly, I think I'll allow this to stand. I changed it into a soft redirect for Irony, after the fact that it shouldn't exist but does too, and it is now sysop protected. Just another (rarely used) exception to WP-G8. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  02:11pm  January 20, 2021

Please delete. Borderline harassement/vandalism by disruptive editor who by this point needs a stern warning to stop test editing. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 21:16, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

I have deleted the page. However, I feel that a ban wouldn't be appropriate as per UN:BITE (it's the first time they performed this specific type of thing), so I left them a reminder (L2 equiv) instead. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  09:26pm  January 20, 2021
Ok, lets hope they stop, or else pretty soon an L4 is gonna need to be dropped. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 22:13, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
Wikipedia often blocks by the fifth warning... I think 4 times is fair enough by Uncyclopedian standards. We'll see how it goes. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  11:27pm  January 20, 2021
On Wikipedia, normally it is L1, L2, L3, L4, block. Sometimes a level is skipped. In this case, this is there 3rd/4th warning. Therefore, I believe that an L3 or L4 is necessary. They were already given a final warning by Hipponias, so an L2 is definitely a little leniant. I will be monitoring there contributions. They are definitely pushing a ban. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 00:04, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Creating pages like what they created is a very common noob mistake, so I'll let it slip. If a truly repeating pattern of vandalism develops, I'll leave a stern warning, and if it continues I'll proceed with any means necessary. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  12:36am  January 21, 2021

How to add things with CSS[edit]

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. And, for making a custom CSS for Newpedia layout, I need to add things onto the page. --Jabberwock (talk) 11:43, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

I code a bit and I'm pretty sure you can't add HTML elements to a page with pure css. You'll need Javascript for that (although I don't know how). ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  11:56, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Well, I think that common.css could specify to not show anything with a specific CSS class, and then your skin (in a CSS file) can instruct to override that... and then you can use div and span elements, defining its class to the hidden one. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  02:40pm  January 21, 2021


I was thinking making a new template, uw-spambot. This would be the equivalent of a Level 4, where if it’s a false positive, we’d see. Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 15:22, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Honestly, it's typically unnecessary since spambots are generally one-hit-KO'd for 3 months (IP addresses) or infinite (registered new users). I just updated {{Uw-spam4im}} for Uncyclopedia, so feel free to use that as an alternative. Additionally, I feel that adding such a template would be difficult, since it would require modifying Redwarn. However, since there ARE scenarios where it may be needed, especially with users with more than 10 edits having their accounts compromised, I copied the aforementioned template to Template:Uw-spambot; feel free to modify it as needed. Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  03:28pm  January 21, 2021
Yes, but in a case like Jarl Jensen, it may be appropriate to do that as they may not know its bad. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 18:55, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Alrighty. I feel like most cases of spam that do make it through the filter are human spambots, in which case uw-spam 1 through 4 make more sense (with 4im for egregious cases). Kev𝔎𝔢𝔳  10:05pm  January 21, 2021

And I think Beak Lion, based on consensus, should be kept, due to the 5-2 vote(so, 71% consensus), and the fact it was open since October. Anyone who wanted to vote, could. --Gale5050 complain about me! And see my Wikipedia contributions! 19:12, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
