The Order of the Stick/Order of the stick[edit]

Hey man. As much as I like your article, you can't just blank an article and make it a redirect without it going through VFD first. As you're new here, I'll pop it on VFD on your behalf. Nominally Humane! 09:37 02 Aug

Sorry for the mistake, yeah, I'm new here. Thanks for telling me though.--Snippy 09:44, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
It's cool. I made the same mistake a few months ago, and I've been here for years. I really do like your rewrite though. You've taken what was a bundle of lists and made a coherent article that reads like a funny Wikipedia article, which is kinda the point. Did you write it off-site first? Because that was an impressive first edit, if that was one edit. Nominally Humane! 09:51 02 Aug
I've been working on the article on-and-off for the last couple of days. Happy to hear you liked it.--Snippy 09:58, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
It's better than my first, or even seventh attempt at an article. In fact my first has been deleted now it was so bad. I'm glad you like Fifty shades of grey as well. Nominally Humane! 10:07 02 Aug
Your article is quick and original; that's is the best sort of humor, in my opinion.--Snippy 10:26, August 2, 2012 (UTC)
I have a tendency to be more complex. My personal favourite of my own back catalogue is Love, but the two that have had the most attention have been the sharp jokes like Microsoft knowledge base or the big ones with lots of detail like Game:Alone in the dark. Nominally Humane! 10:40 02 Aug

yes hello[edit]

You have been nominated, for the much prized NOTM award! Keep up the good work. ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 11:09, August 8, 2012 (UTC)


Im really impressed with what youve done in so many different parts of the wiki. You are either someones sock puppet, or you are a naturally ;) --ShabiDOO 13:32, August 8, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, man. :) --Snippy 06:48, August 9, 2012 (UTC)


You should ask Zombiebaron or Thekillerfroggy fro rollbacks because you revert a a fair bit of vandalism. Just an idea. :) ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 09:29, August 31, 2012 (UTC)

Seconded. And you'd be fantastic at patrolling changes, which always needs more eyes. Nominally Humane! 01:19 31 Aug
If both of you say so... okay, I'll ask.--Snippy 23:21, August 31, 2012 (UTC)


Noob of the Moment Award Noob of the Moment August 2012

Well done, keep up the superb work. --ChiefjusticeXBox 06:29, September 1, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Snippy: forgive me Uncyclopedia personell, I'm new. Give my humour a chance...[edit]

Thanks Snippy. Forgive me, I'm not familiar with the protocols and correct procedures for editing such a page, and will follow them to the best of my knowledge in future. The 'Social Capital' page may be somewhat unreadable to some, but is closer to the meaning of the term 'Satire' than most other things I've come across labeled as such, which has been associated with random memes tossed together in one big meme salad; this is closer to the definition of 'Not Sequitur'. Below this text box we're asked to be funny, not stupid -- my attempt at making a serious contribution to your site with the intent of being silly with world affairs as well as with the hijacking of brains by brain hijackers, not quick fix short term memory bombardment of sundry Chuck Norris and Star Wars cliches. Sorry for being a somewhat inconsiderate about being considerate about professional material for a reading adventure designed for laughs rather than the same o'l tune of belching whatever. I'll make my complaint about the ICU to the respective editors. Peace.

Jonathan Swift: Gullevers Travels = Satire.

PS. What is wrong with the formatting? PPS. User Chief somebody issued a new ICU. Cool, but that edit has vanished without a trace, leaving no way for me to appeal against it. I can see what your going for with this site: what would you like to see on this page? How can the page be worthy of the ICU being removed? Specific examples would be swell. Thankyou --Cuddlepie (talk) 09:05, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

It's okay, man. I'm pretty sure everything has done something wrong their first time here (I did, you can see by reading my talkpage :P). And yes, there a lot of mediocre articles on the wiki that need improvement or even deletion, which is probably why standards can be a bit strict for new articles, so to not add to that number. (About the formatting: I wasn't calling you out on it, just noting that I fixed up some spaces and stuff)
And if you want advice on your article, post it to Pee Review, hopefully someone will pick it up and review it.
And finally, it was Romartus who put the ICU on.--Snippy 09:13, September 13, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks Snippy; I appreciate your response and will take the necessary steps to get it approved by Uncyclopia personal, with the hope of a front page feature (that'd be sweet!). Then every one can understand the true meaning of that reprehensible term 'Social Capital'!

God Speed!

PS. Urban Dictionary gets ma shtick 8-]

--Cuddlepie (talk) 09:24, September 13, 2012 (UTC)


This may seem totally bizarre, but could you tell me where you are from (roughly)? I'm curious >_> ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 11:05, September 24, 2012 (UTC)

I'm in the far east of australia. Whereabouts are you?--Snippy 11:58, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
:O zomg same. What city? ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 22:21, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Not a city, it's more rural really. I'm near Byron Bay, which is far north nsw.--Snippy 23:10, September 24, 2012 (UTC)
Wow, I'm East Australian too! I'm in Gympie. - Strainj1 07:38, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

new section because why not[edit]

A lollipop for voting me!

Alas... it is merely an image and not a tangible object. I appreciate the gesture, though. --Snippy 09:14, October 1, 2012 (UTC)

hello noob, read this please[edit]

Would you be interested in writing in Uncyclopedia's first ever writing competition just for noobs? If so read this and submit your name! (thanks to my current definition of noob as any account made after June 1, you qualify to enter this) ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 11:27, October 4, 2012 (UTC)


Hairy ball theorem on VFH[edit]

Do you like it now? Spıke ¬ 12:27 23-Oct-12

Yup.--Snippy 05:45, October 24, 2012 (UTC)

Your answer got deleted before I could read it.[edit]

Hey Snippy, I got an email notification that you'd responded to my question on that page that needed to be deleted, but Romartus deleted it before I could read what you said. What was the general gist? - Cheers, Strainj1 21:14, November 6, 2012 (UTC)

If you see a page that needs a speedy deletion (like spam or cyberbullying), add it to QVFD, so the admins notice it.--Snippy 21:17, November 6, 2012 (UTC)


Uncyclopedian of the Month Award Uncyclopedian of the Month October 2012 ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 23:50, November 10, 2012 (UTC)

Took you long enough. (Also, yay!) --Snippy 01:57, November 11, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry I wasn't around to vote on that. :)
How would you like some magic pixie dust to help you patrol edits? ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.pngSat, Nov 24 '12 12:22 (UTC)
Any magic pixie dust you can spare would be greatly appreciated.--Snippy 21:28, November 24, 2012 (UTC)
Create a file either here or here, depending on which theme you are using. Then paste this code into it:
importScript( "User:Bizzeebeever/scripts/patrol.js" );
Save your changes, then clear your cache (instructions on that page). Boom! Now you can patrol multiple edits on Special:RecentChanges with one click. (Patrolling is used to "approve" edits by IPs and users who don't have "autopatrol" yet; I'm sure you already know this, but eh.) Edits which have yet to be patrolled can be found more easily here. Hope this helps in your fight against cruft and stoopidism! ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.pngSun, Nov 25 '12 11:41 (UTC)
Also congrats on your UotM win. I should've voted for you if I didn't, and if I did, you're totally welcome. :D  ~ BB ~ (T) Icons-flag-us.pngSun, Nov 25 '12 11:42 (UTC)
Thanks and thanks and thanks. This pixie dust is awesomesauce. --Snippy 05:35, November 26, 2012 (UTC)

pee review[edit]

just noticed you reviewed my article. Thanks! i'll have a tinker with it. --Leverage 12:53, November 29, 2012 (UTC)

I took your advice on the implausible excuses line. There's stuff in the "spas and masseurs" section now. --Leverage 14:20, November 29, 2012 (UTC)


Thanks for reverting the edits on my user page! MagicBus (talk) 21:27, December 7, 2012 (UTC)

that's k. --Snippy 12:06, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

Does Homestuck still require fixing?[edit]

Hello, Snippy. I'm Equilateralperil. You may remember the article I wrote on my school, or others.

I rewrote Homestuck today (see my explanation in the article's discussion), and I noticed you were a contributor. I'd like to ask if you believe the article still requires the fix template. If so, feel free to edit it. Thanks! --Equilateralperil (talk) 08:53, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

That article was going nowhere before you rewrote it. Nice work. (I'll remove the template right now.) --Snippy 12:06, December 8, 2012 (UTC)

I finished my article[edit]

Just to make you change your mind for voting. GiratinaOriginForme.png |Si Plebius Dato' Joe ang Aussie CUN|IC Kill Don't be fooled. I'm an Aussie too. | 11:13, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

Vote changed. --Snippy 21:25, December 10, 2012 (UTC)

I just noticed...[edit] haven't had any new messages on this site since your return D: ~Sir Frosty (Talk to me!) Proudly bogan 10:36, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

I know. It's agonising, but I've managed to handle it. --Snippy 10:47, 13 February 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for the nomination! I hope I'll be able to write more good articles in the future. --ProfessorScience (talk) 02:37, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

You're welcome. I don't know if you've noticed, but Shabidoo has also nominated your gun control article for featuring on the front page. --Snippy 02:45, 23 February 2013 (UTC)


Its a definate improvement. Go ahead and make some snippet changes to the rest of the article if you like! --ShabiDOO 13:37, 1 March 2013 (UTC)

Cool. I was just unsure whether it fitted the overall style of the article, that's all.--Snippy 00:24, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
You think the whole section is out of place? If so...just tell me. --ShabiDOO 01:22, 2 March 2013 (UTC)
No, I thought that just my edits might not have fitted the style. That's why I noted that you could revert it if you wanted. --Snippy 01:30, 2 March 2013 (UTC) Your edits made total sense. If anything...your edit put the new section more in line with the style and pacing of the article as written by Superbo. I hope it gets featured. Cheers snippy. --ShabiDOO 02:10, 2 March 2013 (UTC)


  • Hey Snippy. Just dropped by to let you know that strictly speaking nobody is supposed to archive QVFD except for admins and registered poopsmiths. If you'd like to be a poopsmith just say the word (you will be in charge of archiving VFD, QVFD, and Ban Patrol). -- The Zombiebaron 02:04, 12 April 2013 (UTC)
    Nah, that's okay, I'll just leave the archiving to Peasewhizz... --Snippy 11:11, 12 April 2013 (UTC)


That's how we spell "thanks" here in the Falklands. Thanks (or thjans) for your vote on Phil Ochs. Ochs sang like a nightengale until his vocal chords were ruined during a mugging in Africa and he drank himself to death (although the hangman's knot helped). But when he was in his prime for about six years or so he was the main singer of the 1960s movements. Bob Dylan couldn't lick his shoes, although he often tried (yeah, Dylan was good too, his early stuff at least. I don't know what happened to him recently, and he fell to doing a Christmas album).

Thanks a lot nigs for the editing on Apple. You are a stand-up uncyclopedian and a credit to your family...despite the fact that your father is the milkman and your mother is your live-in nanny. Thanks once again. And also: thanks! --ShabiDOO 02:31, 21 July 2013 (UTC)
