I think we forgot about it. It's normally a "sometime before now" thing, if memory serves. So I'm looking for two things: judges (no fatties) and a date (also no fatties). Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:00, 22 August 2009 (UTC)


The date has been picked. It's October the Somethingth. I assume that means the first Monday in October: October 5. Also known as "Rosh omon" in Hebrewsh, the Jewish festival of Sitting Quietly and Thinking About Egypt a Long Time Ago, October 5 is the traditional day for Lithuanians to celebrate the coming of Fall by staring at the Sun and making dirty jokes about cured meats. Now all we need are the Judges. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:46, 28 August 2009 (UTC)


I'm looking for judges for the next Poo Lit Surprise (three, plus hopefully a spare, in case someone flakes out). And, no, you can't be a judge and an entrant. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 15:00, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

What about being an errant judge? Or can we make make judgemental entries? MrN Icons-flag-gb.png 17:12, Aug 22
It has been a while for me but I would enjoy judging another Poo Lit Surprise. --Sir gwax (talk) Signuke.gif 19:27, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Hey Modus, if I judge one of these, can I enter the others? For example, if I judge the Best Article, can I enter the Best Rewrite?    Tagstit    talk    contribs    awards   20:57, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
No. Judges judge. Entrants entrant. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:00, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Can I judge more than one? 17YEARSOFcHeDDaR 23:20,25August,2009

We'll see. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:38, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
eh, actually now it looks like there's gonna be enough anyway. Don Puttano cHeDDs User talk:CheddarBBQ 19:19,8September,2009


While I'd prefer judges that have either judged or entered in previous Poo Lits, I'm amenable to those that do Pee Reviews to be judges, as well, asuming no one has a problem with that. Pee Review and Poo Lit Judging have a lot in common. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 00:29, September 9, 2009 (UTC)

Best Illustrated

  1. I'd like to judge this section. I promise to be lazy. A word of advice to people entering this section (if I'm a judge): I reserve the right to stop reading your article at any point if it becomes too boring. So keep that in mind. Also, someone may want to email me so I know what and when I'm supposed to be doing things. Good luck. -- Major Sir Zombiebaron GUNWotMUotMPotMAotMEGAEDMUPotMMAFEZotMIotMVotMUGotM (shout) 21:23, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Would I still be considered a 'noob' for the Best Noob Article? Staircase CUNt 21:14, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

For entering that category? No. The noob one, for the purposes of the competition, is three months or less. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 21:18, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Ok. Just wondering. I still feel like a noob around here. Staircase CUNt 21:19, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Whatever happened to starting in January-February like every other PLS (with the exception of the early April one, which I don't understand why it was done except to probably work around the Turkey Day Ball)? The PLS traditionally runs mid-year (July to August) and at the beginning of the year (January-February). I think if we start it in September, or even October, it might be a bit conflicting with other things that might be happening, like the Turkey Day Ball and Forest Fire Week (when is the next one anyways?). Bi-annual works as long as the gaps between the competitions being held are roughly the same and things stay consistent; I think midyear and the beginning of the year work well around the TDB. I can't say much for starting on September 15th since September 15th is a Tuesday and the PLS starts on Mondays (the September beginning also conflicts with several religious holidays). October 1st also happens to be a Tuesday (but it's the first!) and will conflict with my celebration of candy and maybe encourage ridiculously-themed macabre or trick-or-treating pieces to win festive points (zomg he wrote about trick or treating and it's around Halloween!) I was also wondering what the rules might be for this time around. I can't quite recall whether writers could be judges as long as they weren't judging a category that they were going to enter. Anybody know? -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 22:00, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

On your last point: It got changed last PLS so that judges couldn't enter at all, I believe. –—Hv (talk) 22/08 22:10
1) We forgot.
2) I just picked dates out of a hat. Feel free to submit your own.
3) No. Judges can't enter. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 22:12, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm torn between judging and entering then. FML. -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 22:32, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm torn between two beautiful women. It's a tough life. I'm leaning towards sticking with the brunette, as she's got a wooden leg so she can't run away as fast. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:44, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I usually go with the most fertile one. By the way, if termites are in her wooden leg it's considered an orgy, just like how if your dog is on the end of the bed and watches it's technically a threesome. -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 16:40, 23 August 2009 (UTC)

Possibly a bit preemptive in declaring this, but... seems like there might not be enough judges. I'd be more than willing to judge, except that I ultimately want to enter the competition, which is keeping me from doing so--I'd be willing to bet other users feel likewise. That being said, I don't see why judges can't also be competitors, as long as they don't enter the same category they're judging in. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 06:46, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

You can judge or you can enter. If there aren't enough judges that's because it's all your fault and also you suck. Now stop asking. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 07:50, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Well, my proposal seems like the common sense way of doing it. Judging from the above, you're going to be minus at least two potential judges (Tagstit and I) doing it your non-common-sense way. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 16:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh, and EMC too. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 16:04, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
^ Whoops, nevermind. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 16:06, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Sheesh. Writers should be writing, not thinking about judging. Judges should be judging, not recuperating from writing. Judges not writing neatly avoids the even the possibility of the perception of tit-for-tat judging sullying The Greatest Writing Competition in the History of the World©. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:28, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Eh, whatever, I don't feel like arguing. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 18:36, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

This discussion has been had several times before. It always kicks up an absolute bunch of drama. However, one thing I can't remember being discussed before: can a person judge more than one category? Might help with the number of judges if we're a bit short. I don't mind judging two categories if it'll help. --UU - natter UU Manhole.gif 08:24, Aug 25
If it's necessary, I'm not too bothered by the idea. If it's necessary, however, I'm all for not having Poo Lit at all. If we can't find a mere fifteen magnanimous souls to help the collective for the greater good, then we're no better than Conservapedia. There. I said it. Conservapedia. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 09:18, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

Umm... I got a few concerns...

UN:CW was schedule for September 15th... That's not on any more, is it? Namely asking because last time I was told it was only after Poo Lit Surprise judging had been completed, which pushed it two weeks back... By the way, that was fucking pointless... Also, we need to speed up the judging process. I say give the judges a maximum of either a week or 10 days to judge. If you don't have the time to read all of the articles and judge which is the best within 10 days, then guess what? You shouldn't have volunteered to judge! Pleb CUN KUN Dexter111344 Complain here Vote now! 21:44, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

I second this. Move UN:CW to immediately after the PLS if they're going to conflict in September, and force the judges to stop being such procrastinating shitdicks. -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 23:40, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

If I win, I'm donating the winnings (an Amazon gift certificate, right?) to charity. Which is kind of a moot point, since I don't intend to enter this time. --Pleb SYNDROME CUN medicate (butt poop!!!!) 02:32, 26 August 2009 (UTC)
No. The prizes are paid in Chilean Pesos, the official currency of Easter Island. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 02:43, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Seriously, wikia paid people to write articles? WTF? --Mn-z 06:15, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
No. Wikia paid when you crushed your enemies, saw them driven before you, and heard the lamentation of their women. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:42, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

So how exactly does the judging work?

Like how does it go? What exactly do judges do? Don Puttano cHeDDs User talk:CheddarBBQ 02:30,2September,2009

You read the articles. You rank them 1 to whatever. The top 5 get points. You may (if you wish) explain your judgerin' with notes 'n' stuff. Necropaxx (T) {~} 02:45, Sep 2
and where do you leave the rankings? Don Puttano cHeDDs User talk:CheddarBBQ 02:47,2September,2009
Judges usually keep a page in their namespace. Use the Pee Review template for scoring. -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 03:01, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
This is just a thought, but don't you think it might be a good idea to at least see one PLS before you take an active role in determining the outcome of one. - T.L.B. Baloon.gif WotM, UotM, FPrize, AotM, ANotM, PLS, UN:HS, GUN 03:04, Sep 2
Led's right. While we do need judges, I would prefer that you enter one before judging one. Life experience. If worse comes to worse, we can fold two categories together (Alt and Illustrated, probably) into one giant category of apathy (Best Alterstrated). Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 03:23, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

People often forget that Cheddar and I are roughly the same age, both in Uncyc. terms and in real life. I, however, have wrinkles in all sorts of places, to further belabor the above skin analogy. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 15:18, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
We're waiting for Cheddar to age, so that we can make a joke about it. Cheese humour is the highest level of humour. In Japan, the samurai were only permitted to mention it at all after completing the cheese trials, the Chee zito. Only a few survived the trials. Their chi, or "inner cheese", was strong. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 17:09, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Aye. They had to succeed in this muenster task before they would be deemed gouda nuff to be allowed to use cheese humor. The pun, on the other hand, remains the lowest form of humor. -OptyC Sucks! Icons-flag-us.png CUN17:22, 2 Sep
