DO NOT WHORE ON MY TALK PAGE.
I'm a very regular user. If I want to vote for your article, trust me, I'll find it.
Also, please do not add Thank You templates to this page. You're welcome. I have to work in the morning.

New on Bottom, Por Favor

Worship may resume? WORSHIP?[edit]

I don't worship ANYONE except God, Mickey Mouse and the feet of my favorite prostitute! --THE 23:20, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Same goes for me, except with Zappa, Freakazoid and the feet of my favorite kinky pornos. -RAHB 23:22, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, Jim Henson, MST3K and the ass of women who sleep with me by choice are my lords and saviors, but hey man, THINKERism is being put on the Florida state religious roster for 2012. My followers may worship freely! --THINKER 23:24, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
THEism is revolutionising the state of Maine as well. All of Maine's literate residents adore me. --THE 23:25, 28 May 2008 (UTC)
There are already too many religions in California. I don't even bother. -RAHB 23:27, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey guys[edit]

THINKER's back. - Don Leddy the Crunch Fedora.JPG (Nyah, see, nyah!) 01:29, May 29

Oh shit, really? Oh yeah, HI THINKER! -RAHB 04:49, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
And now ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Tom Jones!

Question Mark?[edit]

What's that question mark there for? Is there anything I can do to the article to remove said mark? I'm not actually trying to change your vote here, or whore in any way, just to get the feedback of someone whose opinion I value. Don't just leave me with an enigmatic vote comment here man! ;-) --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 08:45, May 29

Its just kinda Sarah Plain and Tall man. It doesn't compel me, and I didn't get all the many laughs out of it. Thus, a question mark. Sorry my friend. --THINKER 13:37, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I was kinda wondering if you had any suggestions to make it less plain, but never mind. You've joined an exclusive club good sir, you are only my second ever against vote thus far. I was expecting far more, given some of the articles I've put out! Still, your honesty is always appreciated, and it's good to see you about the place. Hang on, didn't I say that in a previous post on this page? Am I starting to repeat myself already? Heck... --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 13:50, May 29
I feel kinda responsible for this... well I felt it was ready :/ --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent OZ! Noobaward.jpg Wotm.jpg Unbooks mousepad.PNG GUN.png 13:54, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Woah, slow down there DJ - it's got a few votes, and I'm not complaining about Thinker's vote or your nom or anything. I was just asking his opinion on how he would have improved it - if you can't get advice from the WotY, who can you get advice from? If it's a quasi, it's a quasi, and so be it, I'm happy with that. I refuse to whore it about or get miffed that it didn't hit everyone's funny button. --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 14:02, May 29
Look man, I'm admittedly tough on VFH noms. If there aren't going to be quality reforms elsewhere on the site, I like to express tough love on what makes the front page.
That said, I have never been a huge fan of dispensing comedic/prose advice in a few sentences, and I especially don't like to do it after the article is already completed. Even pieces that I think have huge potential (ie. pieces I end up THINKERing) I don't mess with until it's stood on it's own merit. If the rest of the gang thinks its ready for FA (which it very well might be -- different strokes, etc) then don't worry about it. If it fails and you'd like to get in-depth with it, we'll talk at length. Don't be offended though man; it's just a nom, and doesn't mean I don't like your writing. --THINKER 14:23, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
I wasn't complaining about the vote in the slightest! As I said, thanks for your honesty (I am repeating myself - am I going prematurely senile?) The day I get that bothered about a vote or a feature is the day I stop editing Uncyc. Correspondence on this topic closed - see you around! --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 14:32, May 29
Right. All I'm saying is that if you want the advice from me, it should be before the article starts and isn't gunna be in 3 words. Laterz --THINKER 16:07, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
Sorry to but in chaps! I happened to be wandering past and wondered if perhaps I might pick some brains so to speak. I have been toying with the idea of voting against on VFH a bit more than I do myself recently. I think far too many people just read and vote for if it's even vaguely good. If they hate it, they don't vote. Practical upshot is that we have to rely on time stripping out a non popular nom, and a lot of people's reading time goes for nothing when it could be helping make VFH better. Is that your thinking Thinker? Also, are you saying that you don't think VFH is a place to improve articles? Maybe I read you wrong. As I said, sorry to but in, this may be my first appearance on this page, but I'm thinking of changing how I vote to a more Thinker like style and wondered what your thoughts were. Cheers. Sorry about all the poopy puns, I'm in a punny stupid mood. MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 00:49, Jun 2
To clarify... I guess I'm asking... "Do you think the silent abstain is a bad thing"? MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 01:03, Jun 2
It depends, if it is something that took little to no effort and is just crap then fine but sometimes you may not get it and others will and find it hilarious. If it is well written I vote For even if I don't fully understand it as a recognition of their effort. --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent OZ! Noobaward.jpg Wotm.jpg Unbooks mousepad.PNG GUN.png 01:07, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Why vote based on what you think might be the opinion of others? If you don't get it surely you should vote against? If everyone did that would VFH not work better? MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 01:24, Jun 2
mmm but if the person put in a lot of effort it is hardly fair to go FAIL I dUn git it?... --Sir DJ ~ Irreverent OZ! Noobaward.jpg Wotm.jpg Unbooks mousepad.PNG GUN.png 01:27, 2 June 2008 (UTC)
Actually, I think VFH would work better if everyone did. Thanks for your comments DJ, I guess we should leave poor thinkers talk page alone now until such time as he decides to comment. Cheers. MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 01:35, Jun 2
I think VFH would work better if the featured article every day cycled between things I have written. Think about it. -RAHB 02:38, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

I have no opinion about the voting habits of others, or want to be made as someone who is trying to "set an example" for other users when it comes to voting (that would be pie making; there I may be exalted on high). People are free to vote however they choose, and I respect that concept. However, I am a strongly opinionated person when it comes to comedy (see my archives with me and the moose fellow debating), and I'm honest about it.

I do take a little more stock in the quality of features than others. As egotistical as this may sound, I like to surround my work with other pieces of outstanding writing and humor. And as the mainpage is the first thing a person sees when first coming to Uncyc, I think they should be greeted with something funny that represents the best the site has to offer. I think the site is too polite with criticism: keep in mind my votes are never aimed at any of the writers personally. My personality clashes with certain users but I still view their work for the work itself. That Thursday Ape person told me to fuck off and I still vote for his funny ones. I'm just being honest for the benefit of the writers; I'm not consciously lying to them, or withholding a vote until their run whithers away. VFH: you ask our opinions, and you will get mine from me.

As for my feeling about improving articles mid-VFH, that too is just my personal feeling. I don't like to work on articles mid-run because personally I don't like that situation as a working condition. Just me; if you can make an article better, improve it all the live-long day.

In short: It's yo thang, do whatcha wanna do. I'ma do me. Other song lyric that means vote however makes you happy on VFH. --THINKER 05:04, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments. MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 16:59, Jun 2
Any time. We do have fun here on THINKER's Corner, don't we folks? --THINKER 17:49, 2 June 2008 (UTC)

And now, this:

Bubbledress.jpg *pop*
Yeah, er, thanks for *pop*
your vote for *pop* that...
oh lord, her whole dress is made of...
*popop* *pop*

OK, it wasn't a for vote, but I thank everyone who's taken time to read and article and give an opinion in the form of a vote. And as I believe I said earlier, your honesty is always welcome! --SirU.U.Esq. VFH | GUN | Natter | Uh oh | Pee 13:24, Jun 4

Any time man. Can't wait for the next one. --THINKER 04:25, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Just a quick note[edit]

Hi, I just saw your against vote-thats cool. However I would be grateful if you did not "Overhall" my article-The humour is intentionaly a lot more subtle than any of my prevous efforts, and I think this has worked well, plus there aren't any more areas of his career I see that would be worth my while to Parody-the key areas of his career are in the bag there.Thanks--— Sir Sycamore (talk) 07:51, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Absolutely. --THINKER 16:22, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

UnNews:Irish voters got it all wrong[edit]

Hiho, thanks for t(h)inkering around with the UnNews article, but I have one question: you do know that our beloved chancelorette Angela Merkel is a woman, don't you? So I presume the use of his (in "his last audience with George W. Bush") is intended for satirical purposes. Or not? Cheers. NaturalBornKieler (talk) 22px-Flag of Germany.png 13:37, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

Ah, I must've thought I was talking about Sarkozy in that instance, good catch. I hope everything in the update is to your liking. --THINKER 04:48, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Very much so, never fear. I always try to maintain a high standard in my articles' language, but as a non-native speaker I might miss the best way to express things just by so much. And of course there are many funny aspects I'd never could begin to think of from my German point of view. - The special funny thing in your "his"/"her" edit, on the other hand, is that Angela Merkel in German Uncyclopedia and other satires is often referred to as "it" (in German "Das Merkel", which cannot be translated since you have no different gender pronouns :), but I think this sort of joke would be rather lost in the English language. NaturalBornKieler (talk) Germany Flag 1.png 08:41, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Hah, yeah I get ya. You've got a great command of English for a non-native speaker though man, don't belittle your abilities. I'm sure like you said about the "her/him" vs. "it" thing; comedy doesn't always translate well from one language to another (Spanish especially; I've noticed this many a late night watching Univision). If you're this good with satire in English, your German work must be quite hysterical. --THINKER 08:50, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
I hope so :) Thanks. Cannot say much about Spanish, though - my Spanish is barely sufficient to buy a cup of coffee. Cheers. NaturalBornKieler (talk) Germany Flag 1.png 14:04, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

Hey, the article made it! Thanks for the nomination! NaturalBornKieler (talk) Germany Flag 1.png 12:04, 18 June 2008 (UTC)

For your vote in favour of today's FA, please allow me to serve you a modest Irish breakfast:

What is it about cows that gets us all hot and bothered? Where do cows come from? What are cows?

These are the questions that drive the Cow Moo Cult and its brethren, who are very, VERY interested in cows and cow by-products.

The CMC is devoted not only to cows, but to helping Uncyclopedia through general acts of goodness and through motivating people with cow-treats and the like.

So, The Thinker, why not join the CMC? It's free (unless you count virginity as money) and it's fun (and it's full of clichés)! You'll get a pretty template for your userpage and a nice title for your signature! What could be better? Sign Up Now!

Collab[edit]

So, hey, I'd like to write another UnTune. Er, do you have any ideas? Or lyrics? --Hyperbole 17:44, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

YES! Yes I do have lyrics. Can you play funk guitar riffs? --THINKER 06:19, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh. Wow. Um... maybe. It's amazing the things I can do that I can't do, given technology and enough takes :) --Hyperbole 17:30, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
Hah, hey man as long as it sounds good in the end I don't care how you make it happen. Gimmie a little bit of time (I'm working a bit more the next 2 weeks so I'm gunna just write it there). We'll figure out how the music will go once the I get the lyrics down and get a basic framework with my little '96 pimpin' casio keyboard (really just core melodic concepts; I'll leave most of the musical end to you). Which reminds me, what kind of programs and equipment are you working with? I'm an audio engineer, so I could probably secure some studio time for Pro Tools editing depending how well the rough draft comes out. Also if I can't, RAHB has some decent software, so I can work with him to perfect it. I'll keep ya posted, 'cause the song idea I'm thinking of going with is pretty funny. --THINKER 22:29, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

Hey It's Me Again[edit]

Yeah, me. I wrote something. I actually like this something. I would be enthralled if you read it. I enjoy simple sentences. http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/UnNews:4th_of_July_celebrates_birth_of_Chris_Hansen --SirIsaac 00:43, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah man, add it to Template:RecentUnNews. I wish you'd write more Mr. Isaac; as my first adoptee turned FA'd writer, I have a special place in my gin-soaked, near-black heart. --THINKER 06:19, 5 July 2008 (UTC)


Okay, sir, you've convinced me.[edit]

This is Dr. Skullthumper. He is sorry. And a bit bloody. Mental note to actually put the cat out before operating on it next time.

It's July again and I realize the Uncyclopedia I joined last year is not the Uncyclopedia I'm on today. And do you know why? It's about quality. You're absolutely right.

But you know why I'm seeing quality go down the drain? It's because there's no one to impress anymore. I'm not sure if this is the same for everyone, but... Last year, when I was a noob, I was like, "daymn, this site is good, I'd better write some good shit if I want to live." And I did, the first article I wrote was a feature. You are right, it's the standards that pushed me.

I look around today and there's no one to impress. The features feel formulaic. I don't write here for fun because there's no one to write for. Last year, there was you, Ljlego, Thekillerfroggy, RAHB, and the like, and many other great users. Now, they've stopped (or at least very much slowed down) writing, and so have I. Why? Because I know if I really set my mind to it I could probably have a "feature" written by tomorrow.

Last year, it wasn't about the features. Last year, I got real live feedback from other users, like the ones I listed. Last year, it was about having fun, because I felt like I always had to do better. The site felt more alive. Now, it feels like a machine.

That's what I want to avoid, and that's why I'm usually so much against Quality Control, is the machinelike feel. But I think the lack of challenge is what's caused it to be machinelike. I think that in all this, we've lost our "natural" Quality Control - our desire to impress other users as good as or better than ourselves. Where are the regulars, man? I'd be back in a second if all of them were back and writing as much as before. How I do miss last year.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize • writings • elk cloner) 21:14 Jul 05, 2008

Dr. Skullthumper needs to get laid... You are complaining because you have become a better writer? Oh, hi Thinker. MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 21:26, Jul 5

Subtopic[edit]

Sign here if you think Thinker's sig is ugly.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize • writings • elk cloner) 00:41 Jul 06, 2008

Hello! My Name is THINKER...[edit]

and this is why we can't have nice things. It's not even like I left for any prolonged period of time; I go to work, and return to this. Thanks for the fair warning RAHB. Now I'm going to try to untangle this web of shit. I'm drunk and have to be up in 4 hours, so conditions are perfect.

1. Dr. Skullthumper - I'm glad that you're finally interpreting my statements as they've been intended. But when you're talking about entertaining others man, I think you need to turn it inward. Write to entertain yourself dude. I can't speak for anyone but THINKER, but when I write, the entire process can be summed up in 1 sentence: I find a concept that I think is funny, then use it to make myself laugh. If you write things that entertain you then the goal is already accomplished dude: readership is an awesome, amazing side effect. You're one of the lucky people alive in our failure of a generation that writes well enough to make others laugh. THINKER is telling you this; it's fact. So, first write to entertain yourself my friend. Thereafter, whatever shall be shall be.

In fact if anything, your point about not having the great regs around to appreciate new articles only bolsters the idea of upping the bar around here: if the mainpage is filled with subpar, rubbish articles, what incentive is there for the next Cajek or the next DJ Irreverent to stick around and grace us with their unique brands of humor? Uncyc is one of hundreds of user-generated comedy websites. What makes us so special? Our good writers. Which is why the greats should be on the front page, all our other quality debates, etc. You are one of them man; let's strengthen our good company.

As for the regs not being around, this may be so, and its unfortunate when people trail off. But there is still a pretty active reg readership I think, or at least newer users becoming regs so to speak. I try to read as many new articles as possible, of course most especially VFH articles. And you wanna know what? Let the whole site trail off into oblivion: the writers who properly use Uncyc as a creative outlet shall continue on. Search your feelings; you know it to be true.

2. My sig is probably the most heterosexual on this site, so stuff it.

Hm.. that about covers it. I'm going to continue drinking now, thank you. --THINKER 06:49, 6 July 2008 (UTC)

"Heterosexual" and yet the words "New on Bottom, Por Favor" appear at the top of your talk page. Questions, questions, question... MrN Icons-flag-gb.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/4e/HalIcon.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/e/e1/Goldboobs_Improved.jpg 22:34, Jul 6
I do write to entertain myself... just not here. It's an internal conflict more than anything else, do I write long stories or try to force myself to write for a site that feels like I'm writing into a black hole? Article writing is not my natural habitat.
Also I find it largely ironic that we're trying to accomplish the same end but think the opposite means will work (more users, better writing, shiz like this). Oh, my aching head. Also, you think this talk page raping was bad? Dude, did you even see my userpage when I left for Lent? Hehe, people r teh funnies.
To clarify, my biggest fear about quality control is locking out the noobs. And yet, quality control seems to encourage the noobs at the same time. Damn it, this is hard.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize • writings • elk cloner) 01:58 Jul 07, 2008
Well the site being a blackhole I can't help on. If thats the way you feel about it, I'd actually advise you not to access it in favor of seriously honing in on the non-site stuff you do. As an ambitious person in the field, writing your long stories and not being so concerned with the site may be better for you. I am a resilient fucker and do both, but that isn't for everyone most assuredly. If you don't think the site is bettering you in any way then its probably having the opposite affect. That of course isn't to say I'm encouraging to leave -- because I like your work and do look forward to new pieces -- but if you're feeling like Uncyc is a dead end for you, it might be a self-fulfilling prophecy situation.
And locking out n00bs with standards would be if they were ironclad, set-in-stone rules. Front page quality is not that: it is (or should be) merely saying "hey there n00b, you're not ready for the spotlight just yet -- lets get you working towards becoming that level." We have our share of dicks on the site, but staving off n00bs is not a practice of even those folk. --THINKER 02:11, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

Hmm...[edit]

I suppose we should finish the project. It's been what...two years? :-D --THE 16:31, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Dude, I want to. I really want to. But right now, I'm just in a million places, working on actual work and other such ridiculous nonsense. If you want to go ahead and finish the edits, the DVD menu page and all the other stuff we planned, I promise you I will come through and do a THINKERing (much like how we ended up finishing the commentary page). I will also promise to do the UnNews article when the DVD is completely ready to be posted. If you don't want to I completely understand, but you see my contribs man; getting old and wanting more is taking a definite toll on me. I don't like it, but I can't help it at the moment. Hopefully one day in the future I'll be working in the capacity of my dreams and able to be making money and be on Uncyc at the same time. --THINKER 04:19, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I've not had much time to edit uncyc lately either...I might take you up on the offer for me to finish it then you to THINKER it after. I'll keep you posted! --THE 10:27, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Hah, good on ya mate. I haven't been around to fairly cast a vote, but if I get some time in the coming week I'll look over your progress. --THINKER 04:14, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Remember me?[edit]

I'm sorry I seemed to abandon Uncyclopedia, but school got in the way, along with getting banned from the computer for most of the summer. So, um, I'm back! --Anakin 21:44, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Hello my young apprentice! I too have been slacking on my Uncyclopedia utilization as of late (though I did put up one article recently). Good to see you're back in the swing of things though; let me know when you post a new article! --THINKER 18:40, 16 October 2008 (UTC)

While I was out...[edit]

Uncyclopedia appears to have died and/or turned to shit. I must politely query what the fuck happened, but that is not why I am writing this. Before I realized what happened, I wrote this: UnNews:Medvedev discovered to have strings coming from arms, legs Cheers, mate, assuming you ever read this. --SirIsaac 17:19, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

The direction of the site is somewhat unfortunate, but there is only so much petitioning one can do for quality control measures. I got tired of fighting that fight. But I am very glad to see you continuing to write; I recently read Employee Manual again, and it brought back some very fond memories. This latest piece is yet again another fine example of your talents and strengths -- great stuff dude. --THINKER 04:15, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

The thinker!!![edit]

Hey! I'm kind of not having time to bump around uncyclopedia at the moment. I'm still interested in finishing Sex Seafood though, at some point in the future. "In the future" meaning "at some point before I die." sorry for the pitiful lack of progress on the behind the scenes page. How've you been? --THE 23:34, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Heh, its all good dude, I'm much the same right now. I really would like to see Sex Seafood completed as well, but fear not; the idea is there, and as it is something that I've always thought had insanely grand potential, I might end up rewriting the script and using it for my portfolio (sharing all credit, of course). I think that the actual "film" itself kind of outshines the Bog/UQG story arc, which is what compels me to take it further. But by all means dude, get it to the point that we've always wanted it in whatever time is needed. Uncyc is (hopefully) not going anywhere, except for it's own domain and hosting. ;) --THINKER 04:22, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree that the script itself is actually much more compelling than the UQG and Bog article. The article is amusing but kind of nonsensical, whereas the script is actually a pretty epic satire. Also, I totally missed all of the drama about the domain name. --THE 12:21, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Judgery[edit]

Well, the Ball begins this Thursday, and writing will be halted on December 11th. And then the judging begins. I currently have you slated for judging the Aristocrats section of the competition, so here's the notice for that (along with likely another notice the week the judging will begin). Let me know if anything comes up so I can fill the spot. Cheers. (though I know we'll be talking plenty between now and then anyways) -RAHB 08:51, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Generic TDB Message[edit]

This is a generic message, being sent out to you, because you are one of the judges that is to judge in this year's Aristocrat's Turkey Day Ball judging. The instructions for judging, and the judging results posting, are to be found at this page. Your judging is to take place between the judging days of December 11th and December 21st, and to be posted to the judging page by the end of the judging span. If you are unable to judge the judging, please let me know on my talk page, in which case I will make my judgment of which user is the best prospective judge to judge. Have a good day, and happy judging! -RAHB 01:23, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Another generic TDB message[edit]

Just one (approximately) day left until the judging deadline, and you are one of three judges to have not yet turned in their final judgeries. This is just a reminder message that the deadline is coming up, and that we'd like to have winners announced and rewarded before the 22nd. The judgery page can be found here, so just go ahead and post up your results when you're finished with them. Cheers and happy judging. -RAHB 23:07, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Splendid on all fronts! Though I am still wondering what the hell happened with the Wikia talks, and why our URL is still the same uncool shit I was hoping would be gone by the time I returned... Looks like I'm gunna have to strap on my gasoline boots yet again. Le sigh --THINKER 00:33, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, I too am pissed about the current situation regarding that. Maybe we should permanently provide a link on the front page to a "Wikia sucks" article.--<<http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/f/f1/Bradmonogram.png>> 00:41, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
Well what the hell happened man? Did no one ever initiate the talks to make the move towards independence?? In this economy, Wikia would probably love to shed the weight of our hosting: we need to make this happen in a real way, Brad.

PLS judging[edit]

I'm sending you this because you are signed up to judge the Poo Lit Surprise. If you no longer want to judge or are incapable of doing so, please tell me as soon as possible. If you're still good to go, here are the instructions:

First, read all of the articles in your specified category. Second, judge them. Judge how you like, as long as it's at least fair and based on merit (one suggestion would be to use the Pee Review format). Post your top 5 articles here. Hit me up on my talk page for questions, comments, if these rules are not cognisant within you, or of you don't know what the word "cognisant" means.

Thank you again for your valued participation in the balletic train wreck that is the Poo Lit Surprise! –—Hv (talk) 24/03 20:24

On it. Thanks! --THINKER 20:49, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for your vote[edit]

I think Plink has taken the Best Article PLS, and it's partly thanks to your support.

I'll send out the proper thanks templates once it's officially confirmed, but one thing I wanted to respond to regarding your review - there is a possibly-too-subtle significance to the fact the the plinks don't occur every fifteen times. This character ("you") is reeling with the consequences of his own overconfident self-styled "masculinity" which is really causing him to lose eveything that matters. The fact that he "has confirmed" that it's every fifteenth drip, but in fact it is not, is intended to paint this picture. I'm a sucker for literary subtlety, but perhaps this feature is too subtle here.

Anyway, thank for your support. --Globaltourniquet - (was TPLN) 17:59, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

I see what you're saying. Personally I believe the application wasn't the best choice in this instance, but that's just my opinion, which is what I assume they were looking for when I was asked to judge. Either way good article. --THINKER 23:29, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Dear Sir The Thinker:
With all due respect, it hath come to mine attention that thou hast said most publicly that thou art adopting no noob, the current adoption of thine intention being zero in number, meaning none. And yet it seems that a certain lass by the fair nom de plume of Puffskein be seeking to be adopted by one found suitable as an adoptive parent. I did, in good sooth, address such an issue on the young lass' talk page, and I, in fact, have said most publicly that I be willing to adopt a suitable candidate, upon a worthy audition, and, in sooth, the lass Puffskein has duly shown herself a fine auditioner, and thus worthy of my parentage. And now thou hast the affrontery to, in frank and utter violation of all that thou hast sworn in a forum most public, to deign to break thy word and to say thou shalt adopt such a lass? For shame, sir, for shame!
Therefore, I do in all good conscience and full of righteousness challenge thee to be the rightful adopter of said lass Puffstein, and furthermore do I heap upon thee great insults in demonstration of wit and suitability and to show thy wit as most lacking. Therefore I do here and now and in this forum most public name thee a breaker of word, a frivilous changer of mind, a most foul, most odious and most putrid son and heir of a mongrel bitch! Take that, good sir, and cower in thine corner as befits such a downtrodden sot such as yourself may be. Of if thou find thineself worthy of my challenge, then do take it. As honour dictates, I do leave it unto thee to choose the weapons wherewith we may resolve our dispute by a suitable duel.
Yours sincerely,

PuppyOnTheRadio sig.gif                                                 

Well first of all, I don't know where I said I wasn't adopting. I figured someone just changed the page due to my sporadic contributions. Secondly, Puffskein does not need to be adopted by either of us, or anyone for that matter: she's a fine writer, versed in wiki formatting and usage, and has a good sense of humor (essentially all the elements an adoption-needing n00b lacks). So, whatever she wants is fine by me. Not like she can't come to me for help if needed regardless. But I will say this: the fact that she's a female has nothing to do with my interactions with her on this website. Think about how it affects your actions, young sir. And though I'm not certain, I will also say with a sizable degree of confidence that no matter how much you pal around with her, there is very little chance you'll be seeing her tits. That said, everybody polka! --THINKER 06:21, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

I just thought about how long ago 2002 was - damn I'm old. I feel like I'm in Pride and Prejudice but without the Zombies. I should let Whyner adopt me, since Thinker knows I'll bug him no matter what, nothing he can do to stop that. Muwhahah. I promise I'm super low maintenance - I don't need to be fed, or walked, or anything. --Puffskein 14:25, November 4, 2009 (UTC)
I hope I didn't cause some kind of a problem with my tongue-in-cheek challenge. I'll answer people's questions and comments here.
First, yes I would love to adopt Puffskein; that would be great. I would also be perfectly happy to share the adoption with The Thinker, or would be fine with The Thinker doing the adoption. Apparently The Thinker got you, Puffskein, here and you've known each other a long time, and I don't want to interfere with that.
Second, I agree with The Thinker that Puffskein doesn't seem to need the degree of help most noobs need but, frankly, neither did I. I was helped a great deal in the beginning by my "Mommy" Miley, Syndrome, Puppy and others, and there's still a whole lot I have to learn. But I've been editing wikis for 10 years, so I wasn't exactly a true noob.
Third, I want to promote adopt-a-noob because maybe (hope) those who can really use help will utilize it.
Fourth, yes I know Miley (girl) adopted me and now I'm "fighting" to adopt Puffskein (girl). But that's not a boob issue. Miley welcomed me here and was helpful from the very start so I asked her to adopt me, and Puffstein said she didn't want people fighting over her and I noticed The Thinker's entry on Adopt-a-Noob said he wasn't adopting (although he's since explained that wasn't his decision) so naturally that inspired me to "fight." If you'll check my posts, you'll notice the person I've been flirting with here the most is a guy, just because I'm having fun with it.
Fifth, in conclusion I'll go along with whatever Puffskein wants. Let me know, good lass! Rabbi Why do I need to provide this?, humble goylem rabbi of the Temple of Narishkayt and rector of The University of Uncyclopedia, Whynersville Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn)  15:18, November 4, 2009 (UTC)

Hey, let's revisit this, can we?[edit]

Well, I feel strange because I feel a sort of blind-siding here from you. In both cases that you have complained about, I never meant or felt any disrespect or lack of ability to receive criticism. Regarding Plink (I had to go back through your talk page to even know what you were referring to), it appears your issue is with the "every fifteenth drip" thing. In my post to you, I was honestly describing what I was trying to do, and I very explicitly allowed (and I continue to allow) for the possibility that it doesn't work, as you said. In no case is there any half-assed justification for something, just an honest observation. As for Charlie Kaufman, I honestly feel like the Tip template is the best thing to use here, and all I thought I was doing in my response was continuing an intelligent dialog about it. I was shocked to read your angry comment - it's shocking to me that you have carried a disgruntlement over the "fifteenth drip" thing all this time. There is no bullshit here to detect. I'm just trying to do my little part to make this little comedy wiki have the best articles it can. I hope you can revisit your reaction and maybe make the more even-handed assessment that I think my language deserves. And if not, if the fault is in my manner of speaking, then I am absolutely willing to adjust my language toward a better understanding. Thanks. --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, film critic 06:41, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, after review I did realize that I may have came off a bit harsh, so I do apologize for that. And I just have a good memory when it comes to this place for some reason; I wasn't harboring resentment over Plink. But when I read the comment on Kaufman, it reminded me of the Plink comment -- at the time I didn't even realize it was the same author. When I found out that it was, that's where the Monday-morning quarterbacking assessment came in. And though I may not have said it so elegantly, the core of my charge still does kind of stand: you write an article, it is whatever you want it to be. You make the choices in prose, style, humor, everything. Then, when people (or perhaps just me, I don't know) have something to say about a decision in the piece, the way you spoke in both instances, you were essentially saying "I did it that way for a reason; you're obviously not getting what I'm trying to do." And that very well may be, though I highly doubt it (being THINKER and all). Regardless of that though, clinging to these elements and claiming them as intentional by design, thusly rejecting criticisms altogether on these grounds, comes off as sort of douchey. And in that, it's not you or your critic that loses; the loser becomes the quality of your article, now with possible unrealized potential. So in short, just don't negate the opinions of others so automatically, and just be honest about your reasoning. If you just flat out like the way something is in a piece, you don't have to play the "you don't get it" card; just say "fuck you, I like it the way it is."

Yeah, maybe it's partly my language that's too thin. My intent is to extend the dialog about the issue, not play the "you don't get it" card. But I still fail to see the "you don't get it" message in my Tip template defense - I stated that it may be a matter of taste. Regarding the Plink issue, I think I agreed with you that what I was trying to do didn't work very well. I am not unwilling to take criticism. In the future, I hope you don't take anything else I defend as "you don't get it". I don't do that (unless it's obvious, as when an unreliable narrator is misconstrued, which is easy to pick out, and has never been the issue with your feedback). --AKA The Pretentious Testicle GlobalTourniquetUnAstrologer, film critic 23:10, November 2, 2009 (UTC)

Attention Judgeries![edit]

All turkies are now in the oven. You now have seven days to comply with your judgery duties. Please place all scoring here. If you can't judge for any reason, please let me know on my talk page. Now go and judge, you're wasting valuable time. ~http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/f/f6/Jewriken.GIF 18:33, December 10, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the Judgery[edit]

Thanks for drudgering judging my article; sorry you had to wade through read it. The constructive criticism was good. A special thanks for saying I could be "leagues funnier." Next contest I'll try to be moar clever than just changing the joke from "Aristocrats" to "AristoCatz" to take advantage of a lame internet meme as the central theme of my humor.  Happytimes are here!* http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/94/Happytimes.gif (talk) (stalk) Π   ~  09:57, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

Any time. Glad you took the criticism as it was intended; such an interpretation certainly lends itself to my assertion. Let me know if anything of yours is on Pee Review or VFH, I'll gladly judge it anew. --THINKER 00:06, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
I appreciate that! I'm actually more of an editor than a writer, but that's mostly because (for me) it takes loads more time to start from scratch than to fix an already established piece of work. Having said that though I will certainly let you know if I ever put my work up for review or get nominated for something.

Well, today's featured "article" is an example of one reason, and the other is that for the last 2 PLS competitions, I've gone through some bullshit regarding me being head judge. It should be an honorary position by now and pairing that with the site going from maddening to infuriating quality-wise, I rip out my hair and say: what the fuck is the point anymore? You know, I never set out to be someone who followed the evolution of a WOTY that wins and leaves. And had anyone backed the simplest changes in standards implementation, there would've been a need for PLS donations. We'd also probably be on our own domain and have the god damn URL back by now. So I scaled back my involvement to pursue more legitimate endeavors. You'd think that the one time I come around to do the one thing left within my power to impart a bit of comedic quality to the site (besides writing articles that the new generation of users appreciates like they do geometry lectures), and I have to get fucked with. Judge 1. THINKER. Is that so hard? --THINKER 21:33, April 28, 2010 (UTC)
I'll start by saying that I'm as happy as you with today's feature. I'll continue by saying that as much as you are a great writer and won WOTY by all rights, that doesn't earn you the right of being a primadona. Head judge? Honorary position? Come on. You know what? I can argue the opposite and say you know, after 4 years of editing, writing, recording, fixing, banning, deleting and dealing with scores of stupid fucks (and by all means, I don't mean you) and having a measly 15 features, I've earned the right of not being tossed aside by someone else, as good as writer as he may be, as though I was a used rag. As you obviously not following the site very closely let me drop a few names for your convenience. Hyperbole. Puppy on the Radio. DrStrange. Alister in Chains. MacMania. All great writers, all producing top notch material. So let's stop with the generalizing. Bottom line - you earned your place rightfully in the pantheon of Uncyclopedia. Your presence is greatly missed. But you didn't earn the right to come every half a year and demand (non existent) honors and riches under the assumption that you're saving us from total oblivion.

Final point, if I'd known that you'd take it that hard I would have left the bloody nomination as is, it was meant as a jab rather than a whole dramathon. Feel free to put your name on number one with the largest font possible. I won't touch it again. ~http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/f/f6/Jewriken.GIF 22:01, April 28, 2010 (UTC)

PLS judging[edit]

I'm sending you this because you are signed up to judge the Poo Lit Surprise. If you no longer want to judge or are incapable of doing so, please tell me as soon as possible. If you're still good to go then here are the instructions:

First, read all of the articles in your specified category. Second, judge them. Judge how you like, as long as it's at least fair and based on merit (one suggestion would be to use the Pee Review format). Post your top 5 articles here. Hit me up on my talk page for questions, comments, if these rules are not cognizant within you, or of you don't know what the word "cognizant" means.

Thank you again for your valued participation in the balletic train wreck that is the Poo Lit Surprise! -- [sire] EMC [TALK] 12:54 May 24 2010

High Five right back at you[edit]

Thanks for the much more positive than I was expecting review, its my first article so I was expecting to get slammed. Could you suggest anything I could do to improve it after PLS is over? --DougalJabber at me. 14:13, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

Congratulations on having your first article pass the THINKER gauntlet with relatively few flesh wounds. Glad to see new writers with some talent in them around here.
As for improvements, if you'll refer to my review, I think the most telling portion is the Humor score's comment. You've got a lot of solid wording in there, and it's obvious that you did your homework on the subject at hand. That said, you just need to tweak and distort some of these more fact-heavy passages. Inject a bit more humorous contrast in there. Actually, a good article for you to reference in this case would be my first-choice article for this PLS, salamander. It's got an obviously dry and direct delivery of blatantly ridiculous information. Being that much of your presented information is steeply rooted in fact, you have very fertile ground to plant the seeds of hilario. Besides that, just continuing your efforts to utilize wiki-formatting will help greatly as well (maybe aim a little higher with your image selections, more link-humor, etc). I see great potential in your writing abilities; stick around and I'm sure you'll make your mark. --THINKER 17:43, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
