Props

The props key is a computer shortcut designed to make it easier to give 'props' to something on the internet.

History[edit]

The props key was first invented by a bored programmer who was too lazy to type out "you win the intarweb" every time. Several hours and beers worth of thought later, he completed the refitting of his keyboard to include the props shortcut. However, he also electrocuted himself shortly afterwards when he spilled an unknown drink on the non-waterproof keyboard, leading to his tragic demise before his work could be recognized.

However, a programmer from Microsoft discovered the broken keyboard and figured out its purpose. The props key AIG was finished a few weeks later, and included with all versions of Windows. Except the versions that didn't include a keyboard.

How it Works[edit]

The props key actually functions as a simple artificial intelligence, configuring the nature of the props given to the situation it is used in. For example, if used on a Uncyclopedia talk page, the result might be similar to the below text:

lol this should be the featured!!11 ninjastar ftw mad props dawg lol kay kitten huffin time

The AI is generally considered to be a paragon of excellence, and some theorize that the model for it was Oscar Wilde himself. Mr. Wilde has neither confirmed nor denied these theories.

Flaws[edit]

The AI is not without flaws, and some of them are disastrous. It has been known to spontaneously insult the prop-ee rather than complementing them, usually when it feels abused. The results of this have lead to multiple flame wars that could've been avoided by proofreading the result of the props key. Many have lost their lives to these epic, accidential battles.

In addition, the AI occasionally misjudges the context it is being used in, leading to still more flame wars - the most notable instance of this being when a member of an atheism group was complemented for his "clear dedication to Jesus."

Due to this, there is talk of disabling the feature. However, since this would take effort, it seems unlikely that this will happen soon.
