Since there has been no new issue of Unsignpost since 29th October 2009, am I correct in thinking this worthy newsletter is now dead? It would be a shame but I can seen since Gerry Cheevers left, no one seems to have been able to digitally staple it together again. I trust I am wrong and that a bumper issue is in the works somewhere. --RomArtus Imperator(talk) 08:33, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I could contribute enough filler for an article if someone begged me thoroughly. Are the people who have worked on the project before still interested? --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 08:38, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I'm saving it! Now it will become the official newspaper of the Goa Tse Clan! And you sir, go fuck yourself. I'm saving UnSignpost and rename it: Uncyclopedia Weekly! 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg.png | King Joseph® GiratinaOriginForme.png | Contact Goa Tse Clan Priest | Goa Tse Clan Sign Up | Rouge.gif | 10:44, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I don't call that "saving it", Joe. I'd like to see it make a comeback - Dudeman did try to put together an issue before christmas, but kind of gave up. The problem is finding someone enthusiastic with the time to do it - I'd give it a go, but I'll be back at work next week and will be all kinds of busy again. I may squeeze out some kind of end-of-year special this week, if I get the time and inclination. Anyone else interested in keeping it going properly? --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 10:51, Dec 29
So I take it that our newspaper is kind of dead forever. --Reverse Genocide Cockatrices 10:55, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
I hope it isn't as it was a very useful record of a number of issues that many users here may have missed (for example - the saga of the banned picture on Opty's page for example). If I had the time, I would have offered but I can see it is a job that does require quite a bit of work and someone who is willing to collate stories , encourage others to contribute and to get involved in a number of issues. It is probably not a job for an admin in my view (to keep it independent). --RomArtus Imperator(talk) 11:07, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
Absolutely. Not a job for an admin. It wasn't, for instance, started by Skull - who's an admin. And for some time wasn't kept alive by some other admin. Therefore your point about admins and independence is totally valid. It does require a bit of work though, and regularly so - which is the real sticking point. --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 11:17, Dec 29
I'm still highly interested in continuing the Unsignpost in the new year. -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 11:20 Dec 29 2009
I'll finish the paper that TDM stopped working on. Past that, I can't make any promises. Woody On Fire! Wood burning.gifTalking Woody Stalking Woody 19:17, December 29, 2009 (UTC)
And I'm always available to make a delivery. Just hit me up on my talkpage, YouTube page (like comedian/singer Riki Lindhome did), or my Last FM page. Pleb CUN KUN Dexter111344 Complain here Vote now! 19:22, December 29, 2009 (UTC)

I have made UnSignpost a makeover

Guys, all UnSignpost needs is some Gay Fuel and a good style, and here's my result:

I'm making my own newspaper

It's going to be about cats and lobsters. -Bretthead.png

I'm censoring it!

My own version is going to be censored. 800px-Flag of the Philippines svg.png | King Joseph® GiratinaOriginForme.png | Contact Goa Tse Clan Priest | Goa Tse Clan Sign Up | Rouge.gif | 11:33, December 30, 2009 (UTC)



I have quite a few ideas for an improved Unsignpost but I don't want to be the editor or have to template it etc. It should in my own view also include the following:-

  • Notification of New Users Who Have Joined. (only those who have signed in.)
  • Notification of Old Users Who Have Left.
  • Notification of Users Who Have Gone Missing In Action Somewhere/deleted/banned.
  • Best Drama page.
  • Any communications received from outside (The Foreign Page). Perhaps I am thinking about the regular raids by Illogicopedia trying to recruit new members but I know there are others out there like Encyclopedia Dramatica.

Besides those extras, I think the format as established by Gerry Cheevers works fine. --RomArtus Imperator(talk) 11:57, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Good ideas, mostly. The "best drama" thing is actually a very bad idea, just imagine attention whores (myself included) starting dramas just to get the newspaper mention they crave for. SIRE FREDDMOOSHA Lord of Egypt AMUSE ME • 12:54 • Wednesday, 30-12-2009
Ditto the communication from outside bit. I'm not one of the real ED haters, but let's not be encouraging them to come over here. And with new users, it may be an idea to mention the ones who don't seem to be breaking things - might be tough keeping track of 'em! Actually, such things (take it from someone who wrote the USP for months) tend to work best on an occasional basis - whenever you see something worth mentioning, drop it in, that way you're not putting pressure on yourself to find stuff for certain sections. Basically, the USP is what it is - ie made up whenever anyone feels like it, so if you want to take it on, keep it going, and keep it funny, go for it. Just don't plan it too meticulously, and don't complain if I butt in and add the occasional bit of drivel - that's still my prerogative (and pretty much all I ever do)! ;-) --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 13:35, Dec 30
God, I know that's right. Drivel drivel drivel, it's all I ever see out of you. What did you just write about? Pies?! Pure Drivel. Woody On Fire! Wood burning.gifTalking Woody Stalking Woody 14:55, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

OK, I fucking finished.

  1. Note: Our versio of UnSignpost is censored, heavily biased and undemocratic. So if you say something bad about it.
Aww, it's almost like he's trying to communicate. I know it! --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 09:43, Dec 31
I see you are still in October 2009 Joe. Otherwise, I will have to put this through Babelfish to make head'n'tail of this issue. --RomArtus Imperator(talk) 12:30, December 31, 2009 (UTC)

TDM stumbles by...

Let me start off this idea by saying this. Dongs. In other news, I'd be willing to try and revive the UnSignpost on a biweekly thing if I can, through writing it and delivering it with TDB. I can write most of the articles and shit I guess, though in order to get it past a biweekly thing, I'd probably need more helpwith all the shit. Is anyone willing to help, or should I just plan on a biweekly - monthly issue type deal? Lieutenant THEDUDEMAN Dude ... Totally UOTM KUN GotA F@H 06:23, January 5, 2010 (UTC)

Here is a post I posted on GerryCheever's talk page before I knew he was MUP, if anyone cares

== You will soon gain the confidence of a peer, but he will not waste a funny horoscope idea on a header on your talk page.==

Are you the current UnSignpost guy? Did you know that they used to put a weekly horoscope on it? Did you know I've been maintaining the horoscopes rather consistently for a couple of months? For what it's worth? Did you put one and one together, and already figure out that I came to your talk page because I'm wondering if you think it's something we should consider doing again? Not that I think you might need help filling out the UnSignpost, it's just that I think you might need help filling out the UnSignpost. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, film critic 22:14, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

What I'm saying is, whoever is doing the UnSignpost has a free right-side section all chunked out for her for as long as I have mediocre horoscope jokes in my soul. I'm just saying... have your people contact my people. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, film critic 18:29, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
