As some of you know, we are trying to fix the Sarah Palin article of all of the gobshite and stupid stuff so it is funny. But the anonymous IPs (I think they are kids having fun, or adults with the mentality of kids, like 12 to 15 years old or something?) whom I will call as wiki-kiddies as we are trying to fix the damage they are doing in the Sarah Palin article which seems to be a name I invented or maybe I heard it someplace else and forgot where I heard it, but it seems funny enough. Anyway the Gobshite Earthworm theory is based on what happened to George W. Bush's article that got the George Bush and George Dubya Bush spinoffs to keep the Gobshite out of the first Bush article and give the wiki-kiddies a coloring book version to scribble all over and let the grown ups do the original article. I propose we do the same for the Sarah Palin article or else we'll end up with more Anonymous Slashy or Powershot or stuff that resembles that humor wiki I don't want to mention but everyone knows what it is where Drama rules via lulz instead of HTBFANJS and Uncyclopedia is a drama-free zone. But I thought up a new idea, spin off a new namespace as Uncyclopedia Junior or UnJunior and take the gobshite and move it there. That way we keep the wiki-kiddies happy and can protect various articles from anonymous IP edits until they grow up and make a user name and agree to be civilized, well civilized as Civilization IV or Uncyclopedia goes anyway which is really Uncivilizaed but at least it is funny and not just stupid civilized. Am I insane, or does this sound like a good idea? --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 19:10, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Not all IPs a children, plus many of the registared contribuiters are just as childish and useless, so it kind of defeats the point. I like where you are coming from though. — Sir Sycamore (talk) 19:21, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Is it possible to redirect users by IP address if they make it to a black list? Would be fun to watch that. There could be a bot to argue with them and even revert their "edits". We did something like that in about '85 when CP/M bulletinboards still existed: unregistered users were dumped into a fake box for laughs. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 19:38, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe it would be a good idea to create some kind of Elite Uncyclopedia, where only admins can edit, so good articles can be preserved and constructively edited. Consequently, the 'normal' Uncyclopedia would be the playground for all those kids and other 'challenged individuals'. Kind of like Citizendium's draft page concept. 19:45, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
The problem is always the same with anything free: how to make smart look like such a good thing that even a dummy gets it. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 19:48, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
A problem to which the answer is a more exclusive version of Uncyclopedia, where mentally disadvantaged people can't mess with the humour. 20:02, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Mentally disadvantaged - I like that. Their effect is often depilatory. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 20:08, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
We can call it Onionipedia. Not to be confused with The Onion, where only an elite cadre of semi-professional writers are allowed to post articles. Elitism is where it's at, man. Now all you fuckers bugger off, because you're not good enough to write here anymore. ----OEJ 00:34, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Maybe we need to create Uncyclopedia Lite? -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

Ah yeah all good ideas. We can create the Elite and Lite namespaces as well and move the good material there. You all must be Libertarians like me or have a bit of pirate or ninja or pirate ninja in your DNA. I'm going to create a Libertarians article so we know the difference between the American liberal and Neocon views which are stupid and the American libertarian views which are funny (Did you know Penn and Teller are Libertarians?) In the heart of every Liberal or Conservative beats a heart of a Libertarian. :) --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 22:51, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Okay, you're joking about the additional namespaces, right? Anyway, I put this on Colonization, and I'd be for creating alternate articles. If Bush, Jesus and Hitler get to have them, why not Palin? Also, for semi-protecting more IP-magnetic articles. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 23:52, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
Yeah I tend to joke around a lot. Like I am not really a space pirate ninja from 4096AD, but I joke that I am. All I really wanted was having alternative articles for Palin and other Gobshit to save Uncyclopedia and got carried away with the momment. --Lt.

Struck my previous message here - there's a good reason. I move for striking the previous version from history if at all possible. -- Random Oranssiviiva.jpg Man 07:03, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
