Hello, John Lydon, and welcome to Uncyclopedia! I hope you like the place and decide to stay. If not, the door's right over there and there is a window over here if you don't fancy walking down the stairs. Anyway, here are a few good links for people like you:

Chief welcomes you, but only because he needs someone to love

I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian! Please sign your name on talk pages using four tildes (~~~~) or use the "sign" button (Button sig.png) above the edit box.

At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but most people enjoy writing something while they are here. If you are critical and think the world would be infinitely better if everyone listened to you, then you should become a teacher, but check out Pee Review while they make sure you aren't a sex offender.

If you need help, ask me on my talk page, ask at the Dump, or ask an administrator on their talk page. You can also look into the Uncyclopedian Adopt-a-Noob program.

OK, I know you may have seen this message on lots of other people's pages, but I still had to come to your page to leave it here. If you have absolutely any questions, no matter how trivial, feel free to ask me here.

Here are a couple of important things that you should bear in mind as a brand new user, especially if you can't be bothered reading the beginner's guide.

  • Read HTBFANJS I guarantee it will be a huge help to you and will stop your early efforts being deleted on sight.
  • If you want to create an article, then simply follow this link: User:John Lydon/My sandbox (obviously you can change the "My sandbox" part to say anything you like). Please don't create articles on this page as this is where other users can contact you.
  • Always remember rule 2 and be constructive and civil at all times. It works (mostly) and it won't get you banned.
  • Have fun, that is after all why we are all here.

Again, welcome!  ChiefjusticeDS 21:30, May 12, 2010 (UTC)

Moving pages[edit]

Just a heads up, if you need to move a page from your userspace to mainspace in future then you can use the move button that you will find at the top of your page that way it doesn't show as a page blanking and it means you won't have a blank page left in your userspace. Let me know if you have any questions. --ChiefjusticeDS 13:50, May 14, 2010 (UTC)

I was not aware you could do that. That would have been easier. Thanks for the heads up. --John Lydon 13:52, May 14, 2010 (UTC)


I've nominated you for Noob of the Month, just so you know who to send the money to thank. —Pelozurian (talk) 04:24, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Cool, thanks. Now if you could just tell my bitch sweet mom that I'm not a total failure and she is wrong about me, that would be awesome. --John Lydon 16:18, May 15, 2010 (UTC)

Sure thing! But only after you fix your signature. —Pelozurian (talk) 23:19, 16 May 2010 (UTC)


Nice work. Did you do it all yourself or spork it from wikipedia or somewhere? If all yourself, more than a nice work, very very nice. Since you are newer, I'll be an asshole and interject some comments which I hope help. A couple of spots were, ah, spotty as I read some of it (haven't read it all). The Rosie O'Donnell thing at the start just threw it off for me, such a contrast from the set up you were doing. And one of the things that is often discouraged here are lists. People call them listcruft or something like that. I had to be learned about that myself when I was a young pup, as well as the random thing, which is where Rosie falls (and what a sound she'd make falling!). Anyway, nice work, and now I wander elsehwere, hither and yon. Al des chains 21:07 18 5 MMX

Thanks for the input. I agree that the Rosie thing feels pretty forced. (Well that sentence just sounds dirty all the way around.) I'll continue tweaking it until I'm happy (or bored) but I thought it was decent enough to be released into the main space. Any chance you know about moving pages? I definitely need some help with that. I'm new to the whole Wiki thing and am learning as I go. Any help you can give on how to properly move pages would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks again for the feedback on the article as well. It's always good to hear what others like and don't like so I can ignore them. (Only kidding) --John Lydon 21:14, May 18, 2010 (UTC)

Youse welcome. The only times I've moved a page it's either been just clicking on the "move" button along the top there, next to 'history', or just copy and pasting the whole thing. Yeah, tweaking is the thing, I've read here that the time editing a page should be at least as long as editing it. Many of us tweak our pages for months. I go back over mine and usually find things to change, or links to put in which I'd become aware of since the last time I went thourgh it. Just this morning I was looking at a page of mine which now reads rough in some points. Learning curve, I guess. Al des chains 21:23 18 5 MMX

Nice work[edit]

GoldenShower.jpg Rejoice, John Lydon! You have been entitled to the
Golden Shower Award
For donating high quality material to the Pee Review.

Your latest review was a real improvement on what we have seen from you before. Keep up the good work, it is greatly appreciated. --ChiefjusticeDS 20:05, May 21, 2010 (UTC)

Skunk warfare[edit]

Dude! Thanks for the review. I've some thinking to do. BTW: I was recently in mob riots and there was the riot boss, paying each and every protester, and the boss wanted "riot deaths" - to blame the government. The people will hardly lift a finger for free. Mobs are organized and paid. But they nuked them before I had a chance to write my article. Ah, well, next time. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th.png 16:28, May 28

Wow! You're a genius. As soon as I made the main changes you suggested it is immediately featured on HowTo. Thanks again. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th.png 17:20, May 29

I'm glad everything worked out. I drink a lot and wasn't really sure if I was actually reviewing your article or just hallucinating. I guess even blind squirrels find a nut now and again. Congrats on the feature! --John Lydon 13:14, June 1, 2010 (UTC)


Happy to oblige if it is what you are after. Simply add this: {{Adoptee|ChiefjusticeDS}} to your user page and move all your stuff in by Thursday night. You'll find your mattress in the small cupboard near the stairs, just underneath my satchel.... don't look inside the satchel. Also, don't mind all the people in the bathroom, it's just we haven't anywhere official to put the Pee committee at the moment, so they are using it for the Annual General Meeting. --ChiefjusticeDS 20:26, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Award from UN:REQ[edit]

Thumbs up2.jpg

This user created RC Cola, an article originally requested on Uncyclopedia:Requested Articles. Good for them us!
(for more information, see award statistics)


Thanks, that was a good pee. I agree with many of your suggestions and will take some time to think them over. Oh and yeah, the founder's name changing was intentional - this was to give the impression that his parents don't really care about him (ie. they don't really know, or care, what his name is). Perhaps it doesn't work... anyway, thanks again. --Black Flamingo 22:02, June 7, 2010 (UTC)

Speaking of Pee, with 6 in-depth reviews, it looks like you're eligible to be in PEEING. And I KNOW I'm right this time.--Sir HELPME Talk (more? --> CUN Candidate NOTM USS Pees Stain ) On Tuesday, 08:48, June 08 2010 UTC

Cheers for all that piss[edit]

Thanks for the review on the Mafia article. I is a uber n00b, but Uncyclopedia has been my inspiration in the last few hours days decades. I tried to leave as much as possible by other contributors, but after reading ur review I understand most of it was pure random crap and wouldn't fit with the new stuff. Very insightful pissing indeed. Godspeed. --SonOfPhyllis 23:40, June 8, 2010 (UTC)

An invitation I have never used before, anywhere, ever[edit]

Hello John Lydon, it has come to my attention that your reviews since joining Uncyclopedia have been of a very high standard and as such would like to invite you to join People for the Evaluation of Excrement and Influencing Nominations for Greatness. Membership will grant you several benefits, a groovy template to put... wherever you like and it will also make you eligible for the Reviewer of the Month award, which is a real award with votes and everything.

If this seems like your idea of a good time then simply add your signature to the Fresh Stains section of the committee page, or ask me for help if you aren't sure what to do. Good work so far, keep it up.

--ChiefjusticeDS 18:27, June 10, 2010 (UTC)

Tantra, thanks![edit]

Hello, and thank you for your pee of Tantra. You gave some very good advice, and Funnybony and I will work from them. The babysitting thing, right on. Will lessen that. Some of the links do need to go, too many at times. I like many of the wikipedia links, because they do a little more to educate the reader interested in tantra yoga and sexual satisfaction. The "thems" line was one I really like, it works when the entire sentence is taken as a whole. Babysitter pic will go, bye bye. But I love the tiger woman! She creeped out Funnybony too! Creepy pic, thumbs up. Well, you did very good, it will help a lot, and I'll get busy on it within the day. Thanks very much again. Aleister 00:44 11 6 MMX

Hey....only I'm allowed to review Al's articles...even though I'm too busy to... ;__;--Sir HELPME Talk (more? --> CUN Candidate NOTM USS Pees Stain ) On Friday, 07:18, June 11 2010 UTC

Tank you, tank you[edit]

Thank you for your review of Miss Teen South Carolina. I'm sure pee reviewers don't always get thanked, so I might as well. You provided clarity and direction for future edits, which the article desperately needed seeing as it was concieved on caffeine high (usually never a good idea). I really liked your idea of making a more wholesome encyclopedic article about her, I personally believe that is a good direction to take it. such as. 谢谢你,你很聪明 ^^ --TheGreatOmNom 02:49, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

Anarchists (who R so improper) accusing diplomats of acting improper[edit]

That is the joke. But it was too out of date for you. I would have deleted it before if I knew how. But thanks for the effort. I read all the review and noted all the advice. Again late thanks, as I just noticed the review. Cheers!--Funnybony Icons-flag-th.png 21:23, Jun 12

Tantra too[edit]

'lo Jo(hn). Per your great pee review I've done lots and lots of edits on Tantra, deleted whole sections and the photo you didn't like (not the scary Tiger woman, must keep the scary Tiger woman). Kept many of the wikipedia links, for educational purposes. Lots of things now in references. If you have a few minutes please have a glace at it, I'd like to have your comments and see if there are any quick fixes to do. Thanks again! Aleister 1:59 15 6 MMX

I'd be happy to look it over for you. --John Lydon 11:54, June 15, 2010 (UTC)

Wow, thanks. For the comments and for the nom. I have to run like the wind now, but will write a comment on it a little later crediting the original oh-so-serious author by name, and of course some bright-eyed character who did an excellent pee review and is undoubtedly practicing what he learned from the article (to the delight of young ladies everywhere). Aleister 12:32 15 6 MMX

Thanks heaps[edit]

You just reviewed my article (Only for a True Uncyclopedia Fan) and it was just the kind of response I was hoping for. I'm about to start editing now. Thanks heaps again, that was awesome. --Some Idiot 22:41, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

I think I've finished the article, although I have another idea I might add. Check it out here. Tell me what you think, and if it's so 'Random' now. An if there's anything I can add, of course. --Some Idiot 23:50, June 18, 2010 (UTC)
