Uncyclopedia:Re-feature queue[edit]

Do you know what's happening with this? Apparently, Xam left and the whole project stopped. I thought we decided that an old article was supposed to be re-featured for every three new features. I think if this was to be resumed, we wouldn't need Oscar's picture or anything like that. (And admit, the picture does get a bit boring after a while). Anton (talk) 14:03, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Sorry for not being of any assistance to you in terms of featuring things. I don't know if you have noticed but my rights have been removed. Anton (talk) 12:34, 9 August 2015 (UTC)


Hey Leverage, add .featurecode { display: inline !important; color:black; } to User:Leverage/uncyclopedia.css! It's magic. Anton (talk) 15:04, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I just tried it but I think I already put it in there. It's the thing so you see the green and red button on Vfh right??? Leverage (talk) 11:03, 13 August 2015 (UTC)


Follow-up: looks like Printfection changed their business model on us on July 31, so we no longer have a shop. Thanks for mentioning it to me; I probably wouldn't have noticed it for about another six months. ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.pngThu, Aug 13 '15 1:45 (UTC)

Wow, that sounds serious. Is there a way to get it back or contact another organization that'd be willing to collaborate with us? Anton (talk) 08:26, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I love the current page anyway. To be honest, after what Miley said about shipping, I thought it was pretty unuseable. There is a British page called [1] which I can recommend. I make all my Lucy Thai Why Wont You Marry Me? t shirts there. I don't know about shipping internationally though. Maybe the (slightly gay) solution would be to have similar shops for different territories? Leverage (talk) 11:03, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Protection change request[edit]

MadMax seems to have made a mistake, when protecting features as he gave them a full (administrators only) instead of a semi-protection (autoconfirmed users only). So would it please be possible for you to change the protection of the following pages: Corn snake, The Evolution of Modern Music, American cuisine, Uncyclopedian and UnScripts:Prometheus? Anton (talk) 17:00, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

By the way, there seems to be a great number of recent features that haven't been protected at all. But I don't know if it was a mistake or a policy. Anton (talk)
I have to admit: till i saw zb's additions to adminning, i didn't know we had to change their status - I thought it was automatic. I don't see it as too automatic, it's not as though there is a culture of attacking these articles. I will try to change the status of the others. Leverage (talk) 09:04, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks! Do you need a list of articles that need protection? Anton (talk) 09:10, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I misread your message. It's fine, I am not sure that protecting all features is that useful. On another topic, have you noticed that Before Broken Britain has been featured for tomorrow? Perhaps move BBB to the bottom, below the wild horses, and change the date to August 19 or 20? Anton (talk) 09:40, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Another request if you don't mind[edit]

The voting at VFH goes at a snail's pace, so I am thinking: would it be possible to Special:MassMessage all our active (non-blocked) users to ask them to vote? Some might be new users unaware of the VFH system, while for some it might serve as a reminder that there are many new nominations. If you agree, I have already written the message to send out, which is just below. Anton (talk) 10:21, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia needs YOUR help![edit]

Uncyclopedia cannot feature an article if nobody votes for it. VFH, the page where we vote on our best articles currently has plenty of nominations (21, to be precise) that are still waiting to be featured, because - as you have already guessed - there aren't enough people voting on them. That means that either we have plenty of great articles waiting to be read by you or that we have very few people voting on them. You can help in both cases. Anton (talk) 10:21, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Just having a look at VFH and we have 21 items, 15 of them have a score of less than 4. Anton has nommed 10 of the 21 (three are from the recent Happy Monkey Comp, a couple are self-nominations) and the last four of them nominated have only a single vote (by the nominator). Everyotherusernamewastaken has nommed 4 of them (one is a self-nom), and 3 out of 4 have less than 4 votes, two of them have been on VFH for 2 to 3 months (at one point we used to have a 1 month smiting point for articles that didn't look like they were going to make the grade). MyOwnBadSelf has nommed two (one with a score of 1 another with a score of -2).
With respect to the authors of the articles it could be that the quality or the type of humour of those nominated aren't sparking enough love to warrant people voting for them? Over the last ten days we do have a 7, a 6 and a 5 on some articles which would indicate that some activity is there. I do think often when you have a small number of people nominating articles it does tend to focus on their own sense of humour, rather than a "broad church" approach.
For me personally I'd like to see less mass nominations by individuals (or even little cliques) and more from across the entire community. Maybe if we limit nominations that any individual can only have say three concurrently on VFH and only one may be a self-nomination, if might help to push only the articles that they feel are of extra quality to be featured? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
Mhaille, I understand your concerns, but let's see if we can get people to vote on the existing pages first. That's my point. We used to have the UnSignpost to remind them of the monthly awards and VFH and now we don't, so I don't think another type of a talkpage reminder once in a while would do any harm. I personally would be against the restricting rule: I really enjoy nominating stuff others write. It's a great way to promote writers and to bring back those who have left. I personally really enjoy seeing different humour styles (including on the main page) and try to promote diversity as well. Nothing is as different from your HMC winning article as Snarglefoop's Dodo, and nothing is as different from IFYMB!'s banana UnNews as British ski jumpers. Self-noms might be a problem (I am aware that currently 4 of my pages are on VFH), but if nominating others' work was a regular thing, I personally would prefer not to resort to them. What I think we are dealing with here is ordinary laziness or people forgetting that VFH exists. Introducing a new rule like that, that might not fix anything but will definitely limit contributions of some people will be a lot more troublesome, than just reminding everyone to vote. Anton (talk) 17:08, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
I just killed all the old ones with low health. I agree that there were too many, and that if there are too many, it's kind of overwhelming to potential voters. Our aim should be that if people click on Vfh, they actually end up voting rather than clicking back (that's why I put all the votes and shit at the bottom yesterday). I wouldn't want to introduce any (more) rules, I'd prefer just to give serial nominators like Anton our point of view. In his defence, a Vfh with no new noms would also feel dead, so I think it's up to us as experienced users to exercise good judgement. Leverage (talk) 17:14, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Always thought that, unless the number of the nominations got well over twenty, so that it'd be literally impossible to keep track of them, more noms just encouraged people to read, to write and to vote. That's how it works for me, at least. Perhaps I over-nominated in the last few days. My main goal is to welcome writers, no matter whether they're new or veteran. Mhaille, I remember how you commented on the fact that two of your pages got nommed without you having to whore them anywhere. I assume it was a positive feeling and that's the real goal here. If a nomination, an encouragement welcomes back a great writer but makes reading VFH just a little more tedious for an average voter, I'd personally still do it. But I understand your opinion. Anton (talk) 17:39, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

Jimmy Carter[edit]

On this article, should the subject be referred to more as "Mr. Peanut" or "Jimmy Carter"? I have to admit, the former might seem lame at first, but it actually made me laugh out loud, because it's just so surreal. Still, the joke might get tired after a while.--EpicWinner (talk) 14:51, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

I did a similar silly one for President Hoover. I have to say I had to google carter to even get the reference here. My impression after skim reading it was that it looks like different people wrote it. It might be nice, if you want to, to go through it and make it more consistently peanut with some thoughtful exceptions to leaven the joke. Leverage (talk) 07:20, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

I had a look at that page with the randomness and drunk stuff and it occurred to me you like might like . As the name suggests, it tends to be open to near the knuckle racist/sexist jokes, but I still find myself laughing at stuff even if I think, politically speaking, it's a bit lame or reductive. e.g.:

Hi Leverage. Recently someone came into the IRC complaining that the past features weren't displaying correctly and that no one bothers to try and fix it. They then left without bothering to try and fix it. They did suggest to me that featuring a new article would fix it so, knowing that I would only fuck it up further, I endeavoured to feature an article and have fucked it up further. Help? - B@NZai k!tten BANZAI! (Meow?)B 16:47, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Hey, you didn't do anything wrong. That Oscar Wilde image cannot be up if a page is being featured, they both appear. The template to edit that is here: Template:Featuredarticle/include. If you look at the history, you either add or subtract those 118kb. I have done it anyway. As for the recently featured thing, it won't work unless there are actually recently featured articles in the queue. I have deleted it for now, editing that same template.

Thank you very much! You can find an exhaustive index of my stuff on User:Leverage.

What are you interested in doing? UnNews or articles? I would absolutely recommend the first, because you can do something in 20 minutes when a news story catches your eye. I didn't do an article for a while, and even then I felt like I was in slightly foreign territory. With Unnews, my main advice would be:

  • keep things short - no one is gonna want to read 800 words of whimsy or scatology
  • make sure your paragraphs aren't too long - offputting for lazy readers
  • try not to make it too niche or national - remember our readers are from everywhere!
  • the best point about HTBFANJS is not to be too random or sweary. With some of my older stuff I feel like I made lazy jokes about races or gays - just because it seemed naughty.
  • I think Unnews is funniest when it maintains an Onion or Daily Mash style veneer of serious news
  • quotes allow you to include points of view and jokes in a way you can't without letting the "news" vibe slip
  • try and finish with a funny line

Good luck! New writers are always welcome.

Leverage (talk) 19:57, 5 February 2020 (UTC)

Ummm... WHAT edits to the "Hitler" article?[edit]

Hi there, Leverage- I got an alert when I just signed in to the site earlier that certain "edits" I had purportedly made to some Uncylcopedia article concerning Hitler were "reverted" some time not long ago - I think it said last November. Just so there are no misunderstandings, I'm 99.999% sure that I did not make the edits that it seems you went on to go and revert. I'm pretty sure that I never made any edits to that article (and honestly, until after having seen the alert about this for the first time today, I don't recall previously havinh read the actual article to begin with at any time prior....) I am not all-knowing (especially in the realm of tech/IT) and so am not going to rule out the possibility thay *somehow* while I was on the site and logged in, edits were made to the article from my logged-in device (maybe I was sleepwalking - or the Russians decided to shadow-operate my account through a "Russian Rerversion" 'bot, programmed to make edits the must then be reverted; or, maybe some kind of alien abduction?) Anyway, I just wanted to be sure you know that I certainly never knowingly or intentionly made any edits to that article, and neither did anyone else via my log-in account insofar as I have any reason to believe (I've been on Uncyclopedia under the same username now for a decade. I don't gever give out my username password to others, and I don't let anyone else mess with my device while I am on the internet and logged in). So if the situation truly is that edits were made to the article by me or somehow otherwise from my user account, such that it was somehow my doing/misdoing, then I am sorry to have caused you to need to take the time to revert the edits attributed to me/my account. And even if (as I believe is the situation) I played no knowing part in makeing or permitting or otherwise condoning those edits, then I am still sorry that you had to take up your time cleaning up/reverting the article - I imagine the whole thing must have been somewhat irritating. Frankly, I am puzzled as to how this all happened. In all of the ten years that I've had bee a part of "the Uncyclopedia exeperience," this has been the first and only time something odd like this has happened involving me - or at least that I know of. I hope it is also the last/only time - I don't embrace, engage or endorse vandalism of any kind on the site. (I say this all very sincerely - in the past some articles that I wrote and posted on the site suffered subsequent vandalism and had to undergo reversions, and I remember it as an unpleasant thing, which I wouldn't wish upon other Uncyclopedians). I'm glad though that the specific article at issue is back in shape now, in any event. All's well that ends well, as they say. Cheers! Sir NoNamesLeft (GUN) WotM NotM

I had totally forgotten. It looks like you reverted my changes, so that is less crazy than someone making lots of actual edits in your name. Maybe you just looked at the history page and it was a case of fat-finger syndrome? I almost reverted someone's edits while on the mobile site. Leverage (talk) 12:41, 12 February 2020 (UTC)

Twitter access?[edit]

Hey Leverage! We all enjoy your UnNews updates on Facebook, and we were wondering if you would like access to the community's other social media accounts, like the twitter? -- The Zombiebaron 23:57, 4 April 2020 (UTC

Sure. My personal computer broke so I am not going to be the most active in the short term though. You can send any details to Leverage (talk) 12:25, 20 April 2020 (UTC)
Just emailed you -- The Zombiebaron 12:53, 20 April 2020 (UTC)


Hey duderino. Are you up for a collab article for the poo-lit surprise? ShabiDOO 19:22, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Yeah man, let's do it. And then write the article. Leverage (talk) 19:56, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
One thing I am thinking about a lot lately is BLM and the whole statues debate. If you want we could do a kind of for and against thing: one section on the liberal version, the other on the conservative? Is that funny? Or do we just do the John Oliver approach to say serious things and then swear once every three minutes? Leverage (talk) 08:30, 22 June 2020 (UTC)
I had some other ideas but yeah, thats a pretty perfect idea in fact. Why don't you start it up on your user space and we can roughly strategise the concept on the talk page!!! ShabiDOO 16:50, 23 June 2020 (UTC)
I done something. If you don't fancy getting involved, you can suggest some of your other ideas, I am open. I wrote it similar to Benito Mussolini as kind of true history potted with smartarse lines, might not be your vibe. Black_Lives_Matter Leverage (talk) 08:58, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
No its pretty solid and I like the style. I've made some changes. Let me know if you think they fit into the style. Revert or rework which every changes you don't think fit. I was considering one more short section on earlier race riots...which can be a source of depressing helarity. ShabiDOO 02:58, 26 June 2020 (UTC)
Do you think the Jordon Peterson, Lithuanian and Iceland section fits in with the style of the article? Be honest ShabiDOO 03:28, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah in the end I don't think my contributions really fit within the style of the article. Why don't you scrub the Lithuania, Iceland and Peterson comments. You can submit the article as your own in the mainspace category. We can collaborate on a new article if you like. ShabiDOO 18:40, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

Hi Leverage, I see that you just featured an article, however many of us have spent the last month making a reskin that will go live in a few minutes and will remain up until the 6th. This will mean the article you featured will not be seen, and should be rescheduled to after the reskin. Thanks and all the best -- The Zombiebaron 23:51, 24 December 2020 (UTC)

Shark farts. Not to worry. Merry Zombie Christmas. Leverage (talk) 09:10, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
If you've got some free time this week the reskin still needs a few more fake potato-themed featured article blurbs, would be great to get one from you. -- The Zombiebaron 19:39, 25 December 2020 (UTC)


Hey Leverage. I'd like to rapidly write a featurable quality article in a few days to be featured as part of the reskin. Would you be interested in collaborating quickly on an article? I'm thinking something along the lines of "baked potato" or something potato related. Let me know if you're interested ASAP. Cheers ShabiDOO 21:08, 29 December 2020 (UTC)

Happy to help as long as you have an idea! Leverage (talk) 08:49, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Yes "baked potato". However I'm debating between 1) The dry blandness of it or 2) Ironically making it sound like the most interesting dish ever. What do you think? ShabiDOO 15:57, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
I'd lean more towards the second one. Perhaps talking it up as a national dish of whatever country? My only other potato-related idea was related to the famine, I always thought this title was funny, the song not so much:
Leverage (talk) 19:03, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Okay so we got three possible articles[edit]

Which do you think is worth doing? ShabiDOO 19:32, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Keep it going Leverage. Don't be afraid to make brutal cuts to material you think take away from the article. ShabiDOO 13:08, 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 23:16, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

Did it[edit]

Thanks for helping us feature an article for the 12 nights of potatoes. Got it done! By the way I see you're in the top 5 in the hall of shame and only one feature away from being in the Top 3. Nice job!!! I imagine one day you might even reach Aleister's insane article count. In fact had you joined the site while Aleister was still writing? ShabiDOO 12:52, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

No worries! I was definitely around at the same time as Aleister, he was probably my principal cheerleader, before his sudden disappearance. I don't see myself ever catching him. I don't write as many articles now, and he was writing back in the day when there were hundreds of featured articles a year. It's like Pelé scoring 1000 goals, you have to remember he played daily games against pygmies and amputees. Leverage (talk) 13:55, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
Yeah. Do you ever wonder what happened to him? My best theory is that he was crushed by a giant champagne bottle but I don't have any hard evidence on that. ShabiDOO 14:08, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Narration for spoof video?[edit]

Hi, just asking if you want to do the narration for a spoof coronavirus video, based on UnNews:Tips to avoid the coronavirus. After discussion in this forum, the idea of a funny video to attract more editors was made. Since you wrote the article, you should be the first pick if you want to narrate the video. This video can bring more talented people to the site, increasing the amount of content and productivity. I can make the video itself if needed, but I'll need someone else to do the narration. ~ HipponiasCUN Talk - Contribs - Articles  10:11, 16 January 2021 (UTC)

I am open to doing it if there is no one better. Can anyone do a Dr Spaceman impression?

Leverage (talk) 14:11, 16 January 2021 (UTC)


Hey duderino. If you have a chance might you take a look at Mosque? I don't really know what to do with it. It needs another concept or some idea to improve it. Any ideas? ShabiDOO 11:57, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

I think it's OK as it is. If you aren't happy with it, maybe you have to make a decision about which way you want to go with it: is it a) a kind of silly random idea about people going to Mosques to play with actual toys? or b) a bit of that and a bit of Muslim-bashing? I find the first more funny, and when I read the first paragraph I expected the article to be literally about toys. If you wanted to do that:
  • You could relate some real practices to toys (take shoes off like when you go to a ball pit, pictures of Muslims praying related to some kind of game (imaginary tobogganing?)
  • I don't know enough about the Shia/Sunni split, but maybe the joke could be that the factions originally divided over an argument about a Spiderman toy?
  • I think the separation of women and men in a Mosque could be related too, similar to how kids would be separated for scouts and brownies or whatever.
  • Could also be funny to make out that Muslims are essentially lying about praying, so non-Muslims don't go to the mosque and get a go on their toys
  • Something about Mecca could be interesting too. It has the Kaaba in the middle, which for your purposes could be styled as a toy chest.
  • Are terrorists essentially the adult equivalent of children who throw tantrums and threaten to hold their breath until they die?

Leverage (talk) 11:16, 9 February 2021 (UTC)

Indeed I almost made the Kabba a place where there is a toy so amazing nobody can touch it. It's a good idea. Thanks for the detailed critique. You're right that it is fairly disjointed with the toys AND the muslim critique. I'll focus it more on the toys themselves. You've given me tons of material to incorporate. Thanks duderino!!!! ShabiDOO 12:21, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
Hey Leverage I took most of your suggestions quite serious and made some considerable changes to the article. Would you mind having another read when you have a chance and giving any suggestions pletty please (no rush...whenver you can)? ShabiDOO 17:50, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
I gave it a little copy edit. Articles are funnier when split into more paragraphs and all compound nouns and adjectives are hyphenated. More seriously, I think it's fun. A kind of oddball article. Leverage (talk) 14:28, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
Thanks a lot for the first suggestions and the copy editing. I put more work into it and I've nominated it. Chaaaaaaaars ShabiDOO 20:18, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Huggle message[edit]

Hi _Leverage!

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 Cassie, 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)

Notice of cancellation[edit]

End of serious zone: Prepare for jokes in bad taste. You have been warned.

Cassie are you going around and shaming users for edits they made seven years ago? ShabiDOO 13:07, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
Not really, hence the mostly sarcastic nature of the notice, how I said "cancelled" directly, and how I solely put one on Leverage's page. Sorry if I offended anyone. I just added {{Serious off}} just to make this clear.  Cassandra  (talk01:20pm  March 7, 2021
I have no problem with the edit, but I suspect that removing the word "tranny" from some Uncyclopedia pages in an attempt to suggest it is more evolved is a bit like shaving a neanderthal's sideburns. In the same page "bisexual hermaphrodite" survived the cull, and I would estimate there is an average of 13.2 unwoke jokes per page on this site. I'd also suggest that speaking to someone in the above manner - albeit in a semi-jocular way - is no more constructive than saying their contribution is "genuinely terrible" for say employing cheap sexual jokes, scatology, old tropes, lazy stereotypes or weak puns. Leverage (talk) 15:02, 7 March 2021 (UTC)
Thinking of it... yeah, maybe I should have worded this in a different way. Uncyclopedia probably won't ever be devoid of offensive content, but trying to fix the worst of the worst every so often can't hurt.  Cassandra  (talk02:43pm  March 8, 2021
In recent weeks, I have seen you nominate and feature Hermaphrodite and Female genital mutilation, so what you regard as the "worst of the worst" means nothing to me. You're free to do Find and Replace, but if you think you are doing anything else than skimming nasty words off a site full of bad taste articles, you are deluded, and if you think you get to sermonise to other users about content after some of the objectionable pages you promoted, you need to check yourself. Out of a page which had "tranny" as one of about 300 option tags along with all kinds of kerazy references to Doctor Who and Catholic Priests, and a whole page about FGM whose only joke is I am writing in favour of a thing you'd expect me to be against I know which one I'd be happier posting on social media. Leverage (talk) 08:34, 9 March 2021 (UTC)
Cassie I love you, but I'm not sure that we need to remove every reference to trans people. For example, was this edit really necessary? It's not even a pejorative. Trans people are people just like everyone. They can, should, and do enjoy the right to live, love, laugh, and be laughed at. I understand the need to remove overly offensive content, especially when it's only hurtful, not funny. But I think we may be getting a little out of hand here. Cheers.
