Image Deletion:

I'm a n00b here and have recently added two articles. However, two of the images I uploaded for an article have been deleted. If an Admin deleted them, then I'm sure there was a valid reason for doing so. However, if it was not an Admin who took it upon themselves to remove these images, I'm wondering if I can upload them again without getting in trouble. Whoever deleted the images did so without even viewing the article they were used for. Please advise. --IssyMissy 18:07, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

I can't really say without knowing the images in question, or the admin who deleted them. Did you check the deletion log for the comment? ~ T. (talk) 19:37, 30 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the information. I didn't know about the deletion pages (until now, obviously). I guess my article will just have to do without those images. --IssyMissy 01:07, 31 May 2006 (UTC)


Sorry bout that --Scorchiolio 01:12, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Ive changed drunken keyboard SYNDROME IS IT ONE IN A LONG series of style jokes? Is it contagious? --D. G. Neree 20:10, 25 May 2006 (UTC)


Seems like the "edit"-buttons for the different sections have become somehow defective. [1] The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs)

There was a comment tag directly after a section title with no space. I've fixed it now. ~ HOMESTAR ME!!! TURTLE ME!!! t o d d k i n s  blah. ﻙﻭﻥ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ Build Tompkins' Userpage 20:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Article Gone

I had an article on Kings of Chaos. Its the first link when you search for it. In the description its still there, but when you click on the link, its gone. It was marked ugly before, but some friends helped me clean it up and add pics to it. Can it be restored or something? Because it was funny and many people I know liked it. Thanks -[User:ILikePizza421|ILikePizza421]

Looks like it was marked more than just "Ugly".  :) It also was marked {{rewrite}} and {{Alternate Universe}} (meaning that people outside your network of friends -- regular Uncyclopedia users -- didn't find it funny.) Codeine was the deleter, and after a read-through, I'm afraid I didn't really get it either. It sounded very random with all the odd numbers, and the teams (?). Maybe you had to be there.  :) Anyway, there's 2 options:
  1. I can move the page underneath your userpage, where you and your friends will be able to enjoy it, but it will no longer be an "official" Uncyclopedia article per se.
  2. You can appeal directly to Codeine to have him restore it as a public article, but I don't see that as likely.
Let me know which. ~ T. (talk) 02:59, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Could you put it in my userpage? Yea youre right... you have to play the game to find it funny. It was marked those becuase some friends of mine thought it was funny. I didnt think it would affect the article at all. Thanks -[User:ILikePizza421|ILikePizza421]

Minor Question

Well, thanks for the welcome; anyway I just want to know if I've been editing/adding to too many pages... so, uh, have I? And is it a problem if I have? And I'm a novice at this kind of thing so I'm not sure if this'll show up as anonymous or not... Lord Ichmael 01:57, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Be careful of adding too many categories to articles, or adding the same category to many articles in a single day, UNLESS the category really is a match to the article. Adding unrelated categories to many articles tends to attract the attention of admins, and you might be labeled a "category spammer". I'd suggest doing less categorization to start with, and do more writing to add or edit bits in your favourite articles, just until people get used to seeing your name around.  :) ~ T. (talk) 03:03, 24 May 2006 (UTC)


Not that I am being greedy, but do I get a special accolade for the Colossus making it as VFP and VFH? And can we get LeCorbusier back onto the VFH page - I'd like to try and go for an even for six months. Can't blame a girl for trying. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 00:14, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

There's {{FH|Article=Your article name}} and {{FP|Image=Your_picture.jpg}}. That what you're looking for? Spang talk 00:32, 24 May 2006 (UTC)
Seems like this has been taken care of? Good. ~ T. (talk) 03:04, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

George W loves you

Thanks for cleaning up the sources on the "Bush popularity lower than herpes" article. I meant to do it with other edits, but got high and missed it... rev. zim_ulator (Talk - Edits Logs) I am the dirt under your rollers. 21:33, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

No problem.  :) ~ T. (talk) 03:05, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

Ice Cream Truck

I read it and I wanted to get a fudge sicle. In the Root of All Evil we had ice cream but you had to eat it like fast as hell because it would melt and any notions of control from the ice cream truck failed and you just got pissed. I remember being solicited at little league games and the generator on the flimsly platform on the back making smelly farts and wafting into your nose as he drove away and you were eating some cheap ass ice cream. I saw the generator fall off one time and he drug it for about 100 feet before he got out put it on, and started selling again. The whores! -- Sir Severian Severian1.jpg CUN.png (Sprich mit mir!) Kraut.png 19:09, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

LOL! Thank you for what was, without a doubt, the most entertaining message I received this week.  :) ~ T. (talk) 22:28, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
I saw an icecream truck that was an old ambulance today! It was awesome and very scary looking, the driver was this old white guy with balding hair and some teeth missing, I shit you not. I got my fudge sicle by God!-- Sir Severian Severian1.jpg CUN.png (Sprich mit mir!) Kraut.png 02:31, 23 May 2006 (UTC)

Welcome Notes

Of course, "it had to be you" rolling out the welcome mat to all and sundry. I remember once calling you "the friendliest man on Uncyclopedia", and by golly, I was right. :-) But wouldn't it be best to leave them on the talk page rather than the user page? They won't get the New Message flag otherwise, AFAIK. Also, is there a New Users list somewhere that you're using to get the names, or are you just finding them by edits? *curious* -- Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 01:17, 20 May 2006 (UTC)

By edits. I usually check the last 500 changes, then look in Newpages. As far as leaving the notes, if I posted a few on userpages instead of talk pages, I must've been half asleep.  :) With some users that have been here for months but still have red user & talk pages, I'll sometimes just add the MUN template to their front page to mark them as "noticed". ~ T. (talk) 10:10, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
Yep... there they are. At least 2 of them I screwed up.  :) All fixed now, though. Thanks for alerting me. ~ T. (talk) 10:28, 20 May 2006 (UTC)


Glad you approve! Cheer BearC cheer.gif*huggles* 14:15, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

I was a bear in another life, so my objectivity is suspect.  :) ~ T. (talk) 14:18, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome

Cheers, I edit Wiki as Ghostieguide so I guess most things are the same as far as formating goes, I shall endeavour not to add any accidental "facts" in my edits. Hope you like the stepladder article Guidedghost 01:40, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Actually, we like facts... so long as they're blurred creatively.  :) Random nonsense articles are my pet peeve. I'd like to check out your article, actually. But perhaps tomorrow when my brain is less tired. Welcome aboard, and if you need help with anything ever, leave me a note. ~ T. (talk) 01:44, 18 May 2006 (UTC)

Thank you Todd! I'm trying to get how to work with these weird editing windows. Check my first article on Parthenogenesis and tell me whether it sucks. Cheers, Eli

Seems as though Hinoa has already tagged it "NRV". Don't worry too much, it just needs some expansion: More details/length, some links, and pictures if possible. Once it's about 5 times that length, remove the NRV tag at the bottom.  :) ~ T. (talk) 16:56, 24 May 2006 (UTC)

A Message, Of sorts

  1. I am not a rookie, I have been here far too long for that to be true (AKA Dec '05),
  2. I'm very sorry if I pissed you off Vexed you but....
  3. I am inclined to be inquisitive at times and consequently like to push the boundaries,
  4. So I therefore suggest that you and the rest of the Adminati FUCK OFF er, no, thanks for the advice,
  5. But I am only experimenting outside the Sandbox and really find this teasing so trivial. Maybe i should have made that more explicitly clear when writing it.

Oh well, you can't have everything. I shall get UnNews moved, and then I can emigrate and start a Communist Totalitarian Oligarchy Socialist Government, where I can do what I want, when I want. Dream on. Anyway, I shall stop clogging up your userpage, and cut the chase-I knew I was going to piss people off I actually wanted to see who was awake. I shall shut up now. --The Rt. Hon. BarryC Icons-flag-gb.png MUN (Symposium!) Sigh. Double Sigh. 20:53, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Sorry about that, this whole thing shouldn't have happened. It was obviously far too late at night for me to be sensible. --The Rt. Hon. BarryC Icons-flag-gb.png MUN (Symposium!) Sigh. Double Sigh. 21:54, 18 May 2006 (UTC)
That's okay.  :) ~ T. (talk) 13:55, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

How could you miss this vandalism???

(a) Congratulations on squeezing your message into a title.
(b) I purposely ignored your doings this morning, because it was a half-baked idea, cleared by no-one, which just created a lot of needless work for admins.
(c) You should consider yourself fortunate to have gotten off with a 1 minute ban.
~ T. (talk) 21:23, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
P.S. I'm not sure what your aim was in this edit to your talk page, but the quote I left on your page was your verbatim text, whether you try to sweeten it up after the fact or not. ~ T. (talk) 21:23, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Lance of Longinus

You deletd my article, Lance of Longinus. You at least gave a reason (NRV expiry), although it wasn't so. It had {{Rewritten}} on it, and you still huffed it. {{Rewritten}} is supposed to mean "DON'T HUFF IT! I rewrote it look, see?" but you ignored it. A lot of time and effort went into that article, could you please restore it (or at least temporarily so I can back it up)?

Thanks, Flameviper12 11:47, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

I've restored it, but left the NRV tag on it (with the date updated). I don't understand it, but rather than VFD it, I'd rather another admin evaluate it. ~ T. (talk) 12:08, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
Awesome, dude. I was going to make a series of these articles, like this one or this one...I'll get to it soon! Flameviper12 14:28, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

No Problem

Yeah! Supply and Demand, people want your articles hence the demand, you supply them at your own pace, and I support the articles to keep the people's addictions running high. btw, when I put an asterick in front of my signature User:Severian/sig it indents it like so. I can't figure it out.

I don't believe I asked you Flamer, you totally misread what I wanted from Todd. I wanted my signature fixed, not have it look chewy and get huffed like your article. Your trick that you gave me was as effective as a submarine with screendoors. I still want the wiki asterik so I can vote properly on the VFH. --Severian Germanflag.jpgMUN (talk) 12:06, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Yo dawg, it's me Waldo, the guy you welcomed. I'm a member of Wikipedia, and find this a hilariously accurate satire. After all, the big macs over at Wiki got pissed at me a lot for adding my name to the cast of my favorite films. Sons of guns. Waldo was in Narnia, I give you five bucks if you can spot me in the crowd. Anyway, I like to write. I have a blog. I hope I can become a valuable member of this team. If not, don't tell me. I fancy I'd like to think that I was. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Waldo J. Cartridge (talk • contribs)

Sounds like you have the perfect attitude to do well here.  :) Lots of Wikipedians like to put their sharp writing to creative use around here, and relax/enjoy themselves in the process, so you should be right at home.  :) ~ T. (talk) 01:34, 15 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. -Waldo J. Cartridge

UnNews Team

Major Lyons - Two things. One, I caint figure out how to "feature" one of my oh-so-clever articles on UnNews. I understand a gentleman named Olipro knows what's up, but I don't know him. I left him a note about it,though.

I like hanging out here when I can, but when I can is pretty badly crimped by work/love life, so when I show up, I try to show up large. Is there anything I can do to help out UnNews? I'd love to read an UnNews article and upload it, just like so many other fine Uncyclopedia users. But I really don't know how.

Or at least, could I get some kind of honorary positon? Washington correspondent, perhaps? I do live in the DC Metro area, you know.

Anyway, that love life is telling me to get into bed. Women.

Be well, — 2nd Lt. Sir David, the Weasel of Wild KUN VFH FP Icons-flag-us.png Fire! 02:27, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Seems like Oli's bailed you out already. To be honest, I have no idea what he's done to the featuring system. UnNews was changed while I was gone and I haven't really had the time to write or record anything since I got back. I'm not sure when I will, either. As far as positions go, feel free to desginate yourself Washington correspondent. Everyone else has.  :) Zombiebaron is the "Undead Correspondent", whatever that is. Nice to see you still checking in, despite the busy life. I feel your pain. And hey, just call me Todd.  :D ~ T. (talk) 02:57, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Uncyclopedian of the Epoch changed the link on my page from Writer of the Month to Uncyclopedian of the Year.......but I was hoping to be the first to win WOTM two months running. Now you've spoilt it...... /me cries. :) -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)

There's just no pleasing some people. :) ~ T. (talk) 17:05, 12 May 2006 (UTC)


Thanks for maintaining the Teapot article - I've been away from Uncyc. for a while.


my sig

thanks for changing it, I was actually eventually getting around to it. The reason why I had it that way in the first place was there was some talk of it on IRC, and I jumped the gun. So the whole deal was more banter than an actual initiative made my anyone. ~Piratehattie.gifCap'n SimzorzAr, Matey! 20:12, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

No problem. :) No harm done. ~ T. (talk) 20:22, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Stream of consciousness

Is my article, and the formatting is intentional. The obvious joke is that 'Stream of Conciousness' is written in a steam of conciousness style, so I see no why of changing it without ruining the joke. I understand why the template was put on there, it does look like shit, but that's sort of the point. I guess I could add some pictures or something.

And while I'm on the topic, my The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock is formatted essentially the same, for a similar reason, so I may as well bring it up now too. --ENeGMA 19:22, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Pictures would be nice, if they fit in with the narrative. I've removed the tag. ~ T. (talk) 20:04, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Hey, where did you steal those cute kids?

You would think that I would be able to figure something out by myself. But no, I can't. Help please when you have time. I like the format for the Venice article so far, but the spacing is all screwed up. I would like all the lines to be even. Take a look when you get a chance. Thanks a bunch. Oh, and on another note, even after reading "all about it" I don't quite understand the feud between you and Some user. Please forgive me if I don't take sides since both of you have been helpful to me in the past. I hope in the future everyone can get along, I know that has always been your aim (not sure about his aims..).--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 20:48, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

I appreciated your kind words on the thread, and don't expect you to take sides. My initial friction with SU (before we both went on hiatus) was strictly over how much information I could give him compared to how much he wanted. As an administrator, I'm sometimes bound not to discuss some things even with someone I consider a friend. The latest tension is over my use of a sockpuppet for the PLS. Some users have used sockpuppets in hurtful ways. I don't think my use was seriously hurtful, especially since RC was notified from the start. I guess Bear could have just disappeared quietly, but that seemed dishonest. I think people were entitled to know it was me, and why — especially those that had asked for input and opinions on their own articles. SU (and anyone else) is entitled to criticize me if they wish, and I accept their feelings as valid.
As for your article:
  • Remember that the 'px' setting defines picture width.
  • I went with a height of 60px based on your first picture's dimensions. You'll have to experiment with different widths to keep it uniform @60 with each new picture you add (or, just let me keep tweaking it... I'm happy to).
  • It's also important to use pictures at least once per sentence because too few will also disrupt the line spacing. I added a couple for this reason. Feel free to replace them with alternates.
Looks good so far. A really excellent presentation idea.  :) ~ T. (talk) 04:04, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, maybe I'm not explaining what i want correctly, or it can't be done without tons of work...I've been messing with it for an hour and can't get it right. I wanted none of the pictures touching, and I think they may be to small at 60px... What I'm asking then is if there is a way to create blank lines of space between sentences...? Uniform spaces, when I just fragement them and space them myself they become all screwed up... Sorry to be a constant bother, I thought this format would be super cool, instead it's becoming a pain :) --2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 21:05, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
Sounds like this is out of my league. Maybe Splaka can throw a line. He's got a knack for nice formatting. ~ T. (talk) 21:49, 10 May 2006 (UTC)
*Hears his name, sticks his head out of the door and peers around suspiciously* --Splaka

Moving item

Hey, I've shown that page to the guy on it (he's one of my best friends) and he thinks it's hilarious. Sorry if you don't get it, but it's our type of humour. Can he and my mates still see it now you've moved it? Thanks, RT

It's still there and viewable, under your user page. So long as it stays there, there's no problem. Please don't create any more articles about non-famous people in the public areas of Uncyclopedia. ~ T. (talk) 16:23, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for your vote

Cheers for the vote on Citizen Kong. It: (a) Made me laugh - and (b) Made me realise what an asshole I had been over voting on The Root of All Evil, which well deserves its place on the front page.

Plus - you're right - the damned thing never ends, just like the film --Hardwick Fundlebuggy 14:24, 6 May 2006 (UTC)

Heh. No hard feelings. I did enjoy it a lot, but the devil on my shoulder kept prodding me with the pitchfork as I scrolled, and scrolled, and scrolled...  :) I gave in. ~ T. (talk) 05:25, 7 May 2006 (UTC)
Update noted and much appreciated! ----Sir Hardwick Fundlebuggy (Bleat) 14:19, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Another Formating Question

Hello there. Yes, its back to business as usual now. I have an idea for something I'm working on, and will need your help if possible. By 'possible' I don't mean your help, I mean I don't know if what I want to do is possible or has been done before. For my Venice article I would like to include small pictures spaced throughout the text, that would correspond with words. Like this->

If you follow this


you are bound to arrive at Venice.

Except the picture would fall seamlessly in with the text, on the same line with the text on either side, and with the picture not having that caption area too. Hopefully your getting what I'm trying to explain. I want it to look kinda like those letters you used to write that girl at camp, with those cartooning illustrations that would stand for words- you know which ones I'm talking about.

Is this formatting possible in Wiki?--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 20:59, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Do you mean like this?
If you follow this Roadtonowhere.jpg you are bound to arrive at Venice. Once you arrive there, put on your best pair of Burberry-check-boxer.jpg and be sure to check out the attractive Ohura0042.jpg and the rather tasteless Helmetburger.jpg. Or is it the other way around?
If not, I'll try again. ~ T. (talk) 02:15, 6 May 2006 (UTC)
I like that very much, I think I'll "borrow" that coding for my own purposes.... Killtoddlyons.jpg -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
Yes! That's exactly what I was looking for. I haven't seen any articles like that- so we'll see if it comes out funny, or just childish.  :) Thank you sir!--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 14:01, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Truth and Apology.

Personally, I think it's great news, because that means (if I got this right...?) that you wrote Celebrity Roast - a fine piece of work if there ever was one. Plus, I think I was watching both your pages without realising you are one and the same. And anyway, what the heck are you apologising for? Is there some kind of sock puppet protocol that I am missing here? Either way, I think it's great. You've made my day. Bear for president. --Hardwick Fundlebuggy 05:46, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Thanks.  :) I hope most are as understanding, but I accept it if there's some anger over the temporary deception. ~ T. (talk) 11:55, 5 May 2006 (UTC)

Argh! KIY in distress!

Hiyaz, Todd. It is I, Yellow Dalek (KIY), and I have a dilemma on my plunger hands. It seems that due to the stress of my thesis defense (which went smashingly well,) I have somehow... forgotten my password. I've been unable to log in, and have requested a new one to be emailed to me. Unfortunately, no email has come through to my home address. Is there anything that I can do, or will I just need to create a new account and bid farewell to my old persona? (Heaven forbid.) As I don't have a watchlist, I'll check back here periodically for your reply. Oh, and I'm glad teh funni is still intact, though I must admit to being remiss in my duties (but that's all behind me now, thank Davros!) Please feel free to pass the word on IRC about my problem, and I'll be happy to provide my email again should it be required (I don't think I entered it wrong...) but I am naturally reticent to do so unsolicited on a talk page. Thanks in advance! -- 16:17, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Ack! Unfortunately, I have no irc access at work. I'm surprised this entire website hasn't been blocked out yet. I hope that some other admin reading this page has seen this and can ask Jasonr or another staff member to see what can be done. Prettiestpretty had the same problem fairly early on and started another account, but was able to get her original one back with a bit of patience. I'm sure you'll be fine. ~ T. (talk) 18:12, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks, Todd! If all else fails, I suppose I can recreate my account with a lowercase "i" and just cut-n-paste everything from there. All things being equal, however, I'd like to avoid that! Again, thanks for being understanding, and hopefully I won't need to prove my identity with a blood test! -- 18:26, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
KIY - I asked JasonR on #wikia about it.
<JasonR> rcmurphy: King In Yellow didn't set an email address...
<JasonR> rcmurphy: that makes it difficult to verify whether the request is coming from the true account owner.
Could you ask him what timezone he is in (that's the only information I have on the guy)?
rc (t) 18:55, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Hmm.. thought I set one. Ah well. I'm in North American Eastern Time (not sure what else to call it.) Any more info you require, I'll be happy to divulge (Sorry Todd about taking up so much space on your talk page!) -- 19:36, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Mi casa es su casa.  :) Actually, having this place as a hub of reading/writing activity makes me feel like it's back to normal. ~ T. (talk) 21:31, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
All right...Jason doesn't seem to be around anymore, but I'll pass it on to him when I get the chance. —rc (t) 20:17, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Sorry it's taken so long...I talked to JasonR again via IRC just now and he said he'd look at it "a bit later today." If you're still sans username after "a bit later" you might have more luck talking to him directly on his Wikia talk page. —rc (t) 20:00, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Another way you could be fairly sure it's him would be to ask him how much the guy who owned the "P-----’s Emblazoned" was willing to pay for the missing tassets. And just to make absolutely certain, what was it that lay upon the icy slab, still warm and fragrant?  c • > • cunwapquc? 22:40, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Oooo... nice one. Oddly fitting too, as I do need my "reputation" repaired.  :) -- 16:22, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, you're KIY all righty! I mean, if we're supposed to believe that there can only be one person in the entire state of Iowa who likes to make fun of Wiki culture and also writes proper English, you pretty much have to assume there can't be more than two people on Uncyc who've read R.W. Chambers, right? So... I guess a lot of e-mail addresses must've been cleared out after the MediaWiki 1.6 upgrade because they weren't "verified" within 7 days, or something to that effect. That would explain why mine disappeared for a while there, and (presumably) why KIY's didn't show up for this JasonR guy. By the way, if you can't get "King In Yellow" back, I suggest going with "Smashy." It's short, it's cute, it gets the point across, and we'll all still know it's you!  c • > • cunwapquc? 01:02, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, but I think Hinoa's got the copyright to the smashy hammer. I don't want to get embroiled in litigation. :) I'd be more likely to go with "Pallid Mask," or even "Doctor Davros" for an utter paradox! -- 13:06, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
Yikes, how embarrassing! Sorry, KIY, I guess I've been away from VFD a lot longer than I thought. Or else my short-term memory is completely shot to hell... Actually, I guess it's both, isn't it? Oh well. I'll try to make it up to you with a nice template or something!  c • > • cunwapquc? 22:19, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
Okay, so I put the wrong link to JasonR's talk page up there, it's actually Wikia:user talk:Jasonr. I'm an idiot, sorry. —rc (t) 00:42, 5 May 2006 (UTC)


I've converted the images. So, we're good to go. I'll get the rank templates up. (BTW, Why was I demoted? ) --PiOfFive 22:39, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

As I explained on your page:
(1.) The person that "promoted" you was a self-promoted fake, whose been subsequently bumped down to OCdt.  :)
(2.) Only a Captain or higher can promote someone to a Lt. Read the "Promotion" section on Admin Rank for more info on promotion/demotion protocol.
Good job on the matching ranks. One question: Why Air Force instead of Army? ~ T. (talk) 22:48, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

NRV taggingness of The Darth Cult Movement

Yo, you put an NRV on The Darth Cult Movement. May I ask why? There is infact little wrong with the article and it is written quite well except for a few edits by the user "PScouse". The length of it is quite acceptable and so really, there is infact no need to put the NRV on. But that's up to you.Jizm 16:54, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

If I can be completely honest, your article is a poisoned tree of links to fictitious characters of a tired and trite subject. It's beyond me why people must constantly keep re-inveting new Darths, Hilters, and Jesii, when there are so many other subjects to write about. Just to be clear, I'll be deleting Darth Emo, Darth Chickadee, Darth Tompkins, Darth Barfbucket, and any other Darths that become new articles as a result of being hotlinked from your article. I really urge you to branch out and write in an uncharted area. ~ T. (talk) 18:55, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Welcome back

Major Todd - Welcome back! Alas, I'm on a little sabbatical of my own until I sort out my new work arrangements - it's at one of those secret-y three-letter gov'mint agencies, and those guys can be a little uptight about stuff. Real uptight. But glad yer back! I don't have any specific plans here at UNC...but if you guys enjoy my writing, hell, task me with something and I'll put my mind to it. I tasked myself to come up with an Uncyclopedia theme song, and all I was able to do was write the lyrics and music and then didn't record it. That's how things work at Weasel, Weasel and Marmot ...well, I've been rambling. Now, off to get my novel published! Huzzah! — Cornet Sir Wilde Weas'l KUN VFH FP (Witty Remarkes) 02:09, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

I'm following your lead and trying to do a bit of collaborative work with Claudius. Having a damn good time, too.  :) Tonight though, it's my sad duty to hunt and punish all the naughty users that promoted themselves in Admin Rank. Hah! I love a little target practice now 'n' then.  :) Be well. ~ T. (talk) 02:15, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

[email protected] one more time...

Well, since you seemed to ignore my last message, I thought I'd start a new sectiion. It seems we're about to enter the top 1000 teams... I hope I'm around when that happens, but if not... Ah well... Life goes on. Anyways, what I was thinking... Though our trend line is a bit more vertical than last time I checked (thanks to the new folders), I think our team needs a rally. I was thinking something along the lines of a reskin... I've had this thought for some time, but never attempted any form of executing. Now, with the rising stardom and the fact there is no longer a direct link on the main page, it just might be a good time for giving it a go. I would, however, like to hear your thoughts on the matter first.

Take care, and have a good one! --Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU [email protected]|PLS|CM 23:47, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Ah. Sorry. Didn't realize that there was a mandatory reply for "I'm rubbing your nose in this"-type messages.  :) For the record, if anyone makes me a bureaucrat, I promise to opp users that don't actually exist (in the proud Canadian tradition).
The re-skin idea sounds good to me, though I'm not sure how it would work, seeing as this is one of the few humour-free projects around here (except for the articles that people write). I do sincerely want to kick Wikimedia's butt, now that we've left Wikipedia in our dust, but we'll need a serious push to catch up with them. Last I looked, they were increasing their lead on us. RC was/is extremely supportive of [email protected] so I'll look forward to his 2 cents on this. ~ T. (talk) 01:23, 4 May 2006 (UTC)
You don't know about the rule??? Oh my... And you call yourself an admin... Though I was referring to the fact that you didn't seem to "attend to the problem" by removing the award and à la Todd appologizing to Village Idiot for the mix-up.
As for the reskin: well, s'pose I'll work on it then... Like I said, I haven't really put too much thought into this, so it'll require some time, I s'pose... But after I've come up with a few ideas, I'll be sure to let you and Rc know about it and ask you people to work 'em out (as I'm quite shite at working ideas out... At least when it involves text). Until then, I bid you adieu and good day, sir. --Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU [email protected]|PLS|CM 01:42, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

  • lol* That was good stuff- I knew I was forgetting something if Mhaille and I got that far down his medals list without any mention of whores. I also see you rocked the Handicapped/Lite/Lite article. You weren't joking when you said you were back!--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 20:28, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks! I do what I can.  :) Feel free to slap any of my ideas around to better fit what your vision is. I enjoy helping, but I'm never sure if my thinking is along the same track of the person I'm helping. ~ T. (talk) 21:14, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Camden leisure pirate

The guy who created this came to my talk page and asked very nicely, so I've restored it for him. It doesn't seem to be vanity, and the TV show which he's referencing is pretty big here. Just thought I'd let you know. Best wishes to the family. --Sir Codeine K·H·P·B·M·N·C·U·Bu. · (Harangue) 19:17, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Category:Intentionally Offensive

Why add pages to the category, then remove them? either they are intended to offend or they are not. --Mindsunwound: ([email protected]) Torture Water Pup.jpg There 16:49, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Author's prerogative. I decided I didn't want that template on the pages. IMO, making them more offensive doesn't equate to making them better articles. ~ T. (talk) 16:52, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Ahhh... I didn't realize you were the author... I merely added the template because I assumptioned that you had seen the category, but not the template... Wearing the template is not a prerequisite to putting the article in the category however... to sum up: My mistake... --Mindsunwound: ([email protected]) Torture Water Pup.jpg There 16:59, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
Post Script: sorry about the item being added at the bottom... --Mindsunwound: ([email protected]) Torture Water Pup.jpg There 16:59, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
If there's no requirement to wear the template inviting people to add more nastiness, I'm all in favour of returning my articles to that category. As a label, I liked "Intentionally Offensive", which was why I added them in the first place. :) ~ T. (talk) 17:04, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
No, no requirement at all... which I will now Delineate in the category page now that I have made this arbitrary decision. --Mindsunwound: ([email protected]) Torture Water Pup.jpg There 17:07, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Deleted DELETE?

I was fixing it to be better... even if the title itself deserved it. Can I put my new improved version on? The original one sucked, yes, but I had high hopes for it. --Andros

I restored it immediately. I only deleted it as a joke.  :) Sorry to bother you. ~ T. (talk) 16:29, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

[email protected] again

...*cough* Oh Tooooodddd... Remember that message you left me on my talk page about [email protected]? Remember how you confirmed how thorough I was? Assuming your answers will both be "Yes, MoneySign, I do remember", I ask you: What the heck is this supposed to mean?:

<Villahj_Ideeut> I got two ninjastars for [email protected]
<Villahj_Ideeut> one from Todd and one from MoneySign

So I gave him an award on his talk page, as he didn't yet have a place for his awards on his user page. You must have overlooked that or something... Care to tend to this misunderstanding? :D --Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU [email protected]|PLS|CM 20:29, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

You're Welcome

It was nothing, really. Anyway, I'm glad to see you back, even if it's only for 25 edits a day. Oh, and I'll try my best to keep writing, even though I have sysops now. HOMESTAR ME!!! TURTLE ME!!! t o m p k i n s  blah. ﺞوﻦ וףה ՃՄ ண்ஸ ފއހ วอฏม +տ trade websites 21:10, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Shady's back, tell a friend.

You're too kind as usual Todd. It is WONDERFUL to see you back here again. Mhaille has been kind enough to help me out in your absence on this and that. He's a good chap. Bear and Prettiestpretty have also been kicking ass and taking names on numerous articles to help me out. No need to apologize for your leaving, not all of us get the pleasure of being paid to be chained to a desk all day, and it's fun for us deskbound people to hear about the adventures of those who have a life on weekdays. :) I'm sure soon I will be bugging you again for help, and it will seem just like the old days. :) --2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 17:09, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Please do.  :) I'm only too happy to help where I can. The fact that none of your work has been front-paged yet is something that needs to be corrected. Now that Mhaille has finally been granted long due credit with the WotM award, you are easily my top favourite underrated writer. ~ T. (talk) 18:09, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Anal Glands

T- Thanks for the nice message. By the way I worked the anal glands into my article Colossus of Barbie. Since your back and all, could you take a peep and tell me what you think, what needs improved, and whether you think it might be VFH worthy (although I have to say that at the moment, the strongest field of stories is up there right now in a long, long time). BTW, how was your vacation? The family? Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 12:03, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

The family is good, albeit a little stressed at the prospect of packing our lives into carboard boxes and moving hundreds of miles again. Life's that way though, at least if you're chasing the opportunities. I'd be happy to have a read through Colossus of Barbie once I've returned the rest of my March talk page messages (I'm half done, I think).  :) ~ T. (talk) 13:24, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
I understand the box thing. We move on or about the 15th and I'm up to my dark roots in boxes, kids playing in boxes, boxers playing in boxes. The futility is that once we move, then we have to through all this crap and put it away. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 13:29, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

/me a schoolgirl! -- Sir Mhaille Icons-flag-gb.png (talk to me)
It's stuff like that that makes me confuse your gender, Mhaille. And yeah, welcome back, Todders. Hope your reinsterted presence will remove (or at least reduce) my zero-tollerance set of mind. --Sir Mon€¥$ignSTFU [email protected]|PLS|CM 10:36, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps. But I think that the variety of personalities here is what makes the place run well. That said, it wouldn't hurt some of us admins to relax a little. P.S. Real men cry, but not generally like a schoolgirl. Can't blame him for being in touch with his feminine side though.  :) ~ T. (talk) 10:44, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Could be. But's let not forget that one of those personalities is officially The Nicest Guy On The Internet. And I for one welcome our new insect overlords am glad as all gladness that you're back. We've now doubled the guards so you won't get away so easily next time... -- Sir Codeine KUN VFP Bur. MDA NS UotM CM +S (Harangue) 11:40, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
Thanks Cody.  :) It's good to be back. I appreciate the extra guards, though they're probably unnecessary. I've torn a page from the Book of Elvis and will probably just disapparate off the Hogwarts Uncyclopedia grounds when family, university, or financial matters compel me to. The next 4 months promise more stress while I get things in order here, but I think I need some Uncyc play time, too. ~ T. (talk) 11:57, 1 May 2006 (UTC)


As you probably guessed, I find the award sort of funny also, since I characterized myself as a "useful gobshite" rather than a useless one. That being said, to be completely frank, I think jtaylor's nomming me as an apparent part of some sort of vendetta over some sort of imaginary offense I committed on his discussion page is utterly pathetic, and if it was supposed to embarass me and make me look stupid, in my opinion it's had the exact same effect upon himself. I don't take a nomination from him as an insult, since it was obviously motivated by his own personal problems, whatever they are.

--RudolfRadna 16:32, 26 April 2006 (UTC)


Please note that as per the deletion policy and nrv rules, pages older than a few days are not eligible for NRV. This is not a suggestion as your comments elsewhere on your talk page seem to indicate you treat it as. By disregarding the policy you are creating real work for the admins who have to undue your mistake and you also reduce the chance that the pages you mark will every be deleted or improved, because in many cases we don't have the energy to do more than just revert your edit. We appreciate the work you are trying to do, but if you blatantly ignore policy in the future you will get more than just a stern talking to. ---Quill.gifRev. Isra (talk) 09:48, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Oh really? Well, if it's threats you're resorting to: You win. I'm no match for your adminly powers. For a place that supposedly prides itself for it's lack of Gestapo goosestepping regarding policy and procedure, this place sure has done it's share of anal retentive pencil pushing recently. This truly is a Wikipedia clone. Well, if you're that intent on saving any of the truly crummy articles I marked by "due process" -- fine. Be damned if you ever see me in VFD, and for that matter, I've done my last bit of attempted maintenance around here. Have fun. --Bear 10:31, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Sigh. I phrased that poorly, and I apologize for that. You are never going to get banned for trying to help. But we do have our system designed from experience to produce the best results without straining admin resources, so when that system is disregarded it does produce some annoyed admins. I don't know that we have ever disavowed trying to engineer a system that works for our needs, regardless of whether it is wikipedia-like or not. As for maintenance, you should not feel compelled to perform it. If you want to help out, I don't want to discourage it (only channel it more productively) but it isn't something that we expect noobs will do, so don't feel like it is something you have to do. You appear to have writing talent and you should never feel that "merely" writing makes you a less important part of the community. Anyhow, it is late and my brains are fried and I hope you will forgive my verbal missteps. ---Quill.gifRev. Isra (talk) 11:16, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
I didn't think you sounded like yourself.  :) Cheers for not biting further into my saucy retort. It's true that I think that the new system (since the return of VFD) is needlessly complex from a user standpoint. There are too many tags, and it's unclear to me what applies where. For that matter, I don't enjoy reading Gwax's VFD replies about what entries weren't appropriate and which tag would fit. There's something unfriendly feeling about him that makes me want to steer clear of the deletion peocess altogether. For those reasons I will continue to write, but not crap hunt. Thanks for your very kind reply. --Bear 12:51, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
(sigh) The light of the sun pales in comparison to love in this room. You are both forgiven three venial sins or one mortal sin. Go now in peace. --GOD! 13:53, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Woo hoo! Uhm... is that pre-existing sins, or future sins? --Bear 14:57, 25 April 2006 (UTC)


You might find this informative. (The link actually goes to Uncyc; I just can't get it as an intrawiki link...) —Hinoa KUN (talk) 18:45, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

I read it, disagreed, and replied. But thanks for watching out for me.  :) --Bear 18:46, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Captain's log

I actually think it's a little too fat, personally. Trim some of the less funny stuff, and I think it's feature-worthy.--<<>> 00:39, 19 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks for the feedback. I still feel pretty unqualified to judge what's useful and what's not. I guess that's why even professional writers hand their novels over to professional editors to trim the excess off.  :) --Bear 00:47, 19 April 2006 (UTC)


Could you leave the vote counters off the VFH page please? People always forget to update them when they vote, and what's left can be misleading - people probably won't check to make sure it's right before adjusting it, if they do remember. Before I removed them, at least half of the counts were wrong already. Why do we need them there anyway? It won't make a difference to the actual voting, and anyone removing or featuring the nomination will have to count up the votes anyway, in case they're wrong. It's just rather redundant! Spang talk 12:50, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

I saw that an anonymous IP had removed them. There is discussion about the use of the counter on the VFH talk page. You might want to chime in there, and read my rationale. --Bear 13:19, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, I must have timed out, didn't realise I was an IP when I did that. Also didn't see the discussion bit about it. We chatted about it in IRC and decided it should be removed. I'll reall the talk page as soon as this crack vandal pisses off. Spang talk 13:22, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

What are you working on right now?

Thanks for stopping by, I was actually going to ask you about something last week, but now I forgot what it was... Yeah, most of the stuff that ends up on my talk page is banter anyway, and it's all technically archived anyway right? :) So, what are you working on right now?--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 15:25, 24 April 2006 (UTC)

My pleasure. I'm up to nothing at the moment. Not much is happening with my 5 recent articles... I'm at a loss to improve Captain's log and the rest are awaiting Pee Review feedback or some other talk page comment. So... I'm taking a writing break to stew in some more ideas. However, I was happy to see Fozzie Bear get an honorable mention alongside William Wordsworth (which was great BTW, and would have been my pick for best rewrite, had I been a judge). --Bear 15:33, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
That's very kind of you to say. I really thought Fozzie would win because it had such wide appeal. It would have been my pick btw. I'm working on the handicapped right now which is my first "for men only article" attempt, its harder than I thought to be a real dick about things. If your bored and would like to help out on the Handicapped/Lite article feel free :) If you like I can give some imput to Captain's Log, not sure what to do to expand it either...I never have a shortage of articles to write, but finding one that I'm in the "mood" for is the trouble... I also thought Segregation would win best article, that's funny stuff.--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 15:51, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
Yes, RadicalX should write more.  :) I'd be happy to have a look at Handicapped/Lite (thanks for the invitation) -- just know that you're free to remove any changes I make. I'm a firm believer that the primary author with the vision is best qualified to steer. If you've got a minute, take a red pen to Captain's log (note: lowercase "l"). Brad Frasier said it was too fat, so perhaps it needs streamlining and not additions (though it's possible that more jokes might occur to you during the cutting process). --Bear 16:01, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
Sounds good, I will give Captain's Log a look see. Feel free to go wild with Handicapped/Lite, I will try to make the misogynistic Handicapped article as rough and funny as possible to set up a good contrast on the lite version :)--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 16:19, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
Agh! One sentence? Not much to go on, but I'll try.  :) --Bear 16:44, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
The lite version has a lot less "pressure" to be funny I would think, which could make it easier- and like I said, I hope the original article can provide you enough inspiration. I'm going to add more pictures and text later today :) If you want to wait until I'm completely done with the man version that's cool--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 17:00, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
I really liked your lite page, so much I'm tempted to ask someone to create another template for an "ultra light" page to put on the lite page :) Seriously- funny stuff Mr. Bear, I don't see any reason to change anything except perhaps the "sorry" part, but even that made me chuckle. How long have you been around here? Your writing is quite good- and put together with greater efficiency than mine--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 20:30, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
I signed in March 29th... mostly just to enter the Poo Lit Contest and see how my stuff would be received. And I do like to write quickly. I prefer to start and finish within 24 hours, then let it sit for awhile and come back to it later. When you work on something too long, you lose objectivity. I much prefer collaboration, or getting as much feedback as possible from readers (which is hard to come by). I find it nearly impossible to tell if what I write has any value to anyone beyond myself. I'd love for someone with talent and an outside perspective to hack away at The Root of All Evil. I think it could be good, with a little boost and a lot of pruning.
I'm definitely available for continued collaboration, and have no real interest in getting credit for front page stuff. I've had enough success in life to worry about collecting prizes here. But I'm definitely interested in working with others, and getting people on the front page, if I can. --Bear 20:45, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
Bravo! I like the Lite Lite- I think that will be a funny thread for people to follow. My "real world" success is debatable- so I crave applause from others, but have never nominated anything I write. I'm still getting the hang of writing articles here, and its good practice for break up letters and such. Feeling Patriotic today? *laugh*--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 21:24, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
Oh, probably tomorrow.  :) Please tell me there are more pictures in that series. Then, email them to me.  :) --Bear 21:30, 24 April 2006 (UTC)
I wish there were, the rest are pretty tame I'm afraid...:)--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 17:13, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
It's just as well. They might be underage. I'm a bad judge of these things.  :) --Bear 17:21, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
I looked at On a stick, it looks good, I'm tempted to put in a picture of those chicks in the Hot Dog on a Stick hats in there know the girls who work at the franchise, oh and put in a quote from Ed Gein (American Psycho)like-

"When I see a pretty girl walking down the street, I think two things. One part wants me to take her out, talk to her, be real nice and sweet and treat her right."

And what did the other part think?

"What her head would look like on a stick..."

That would have to be condensed of course...I don't know if you want me messing with it :)--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 18:11, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes! By all means, please mess with anything that I write. I start with ideas, but then reach the point where I don't know what else it needs. I want people to read, get an idea, and run with it. If you want to add quotes, text, pix, by all means do so.  :)
Off topic: Did you ever remember what it was that you wanted to ask me last week? --Bear 18:17, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Okay, I'm going to go add some stuff then :) For some reason I think it had something to do with the Copernicus article I wrote a long time ago- but maybe not- are you Polish?--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 21:35, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Nope. Not Polish. Sadly, I don't really know what I am. Generic European stock, I guess.  :) --Bear 13:24, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

The Root of All Evil

I just wanted to say that I read your Poo Lit Surprise submission, and was most pleased. It is a travesty that the original scriptures detailing my stellar work in the creation of flip flop shoes and chaise lounges have been denounced as apocryphal by the leaders of the earthly church, and other so-called experts. Still, I stayed my hand, having already destroyed the world once. You are hereby forgiven for nine venial sins or three mortal sins. Go now in peace. --GOD! 13:50, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. I've never communicated with an omniscient, omnipresent, non-corporeal entity, and frankly I'm at a loss for words. I'm glad you enjoyed it. You may have been the only one, in all likelihood.  :) --Bear 14:56, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Reply to response to my Root of All Evil comment

No need for thanks, I just thought it was a really well done article. In fact, I agree with the comments above, and I personally think it would be a shame if you don't get the NotM award. (I already put in my vote this afternoon.) Oh, I really liked On a stick, too. I'll check out your others I haven't read yet later. ...But then again, I'm not an admin or winner or even nominee of shit for that matter, so what's my opinion worth anyway?! Later. --So So 13:11, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

A lot, actually.  :) Any feedback is valuable regardless of whether the user is an admin, or an award winner, or just an involved user. From what I've read, a number of admins around here (I can't remember them all) are trying to erase the idea that being an admin makes you more elite/valued. I hope they succeed. Some of my favorite writers around here have no rank whatsoever, and are not in the running for writer of the month yet, but it doesn't diminish my respect for them. I appreciate your modesty.  :) --Bear 13:22, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead

The Root of All Evil is good stuff, most people here aren't ready for stuff like William Wordsworth, and I feel that with all the 'important subjects' left mostly undone or done to poor standards its my responsibility to hack out as much as I can. I figure it's better to have a lexicon of B-/C+ work than one or two A+ articles, but most seem to disagree. Your critiques and compliments are much appreciated, and your certainly the nicest user I've come across since the passing of Todd Lyons. Thank you again for all of you help on Handicapped/Lite too.--2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 14:25, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks, and you're welcome too. Sorry I've run out of gas. If I see you make other changes to 'Lite', I may be able to add a bit more myself. As it is, I'm lost. Hate it when that happens. (Which is all the time, really).  :) --Bear 18:16, 27 April 2006 (UTC)

Surprise sex

I replaced the NRV tag that you put on this page with a fix tag because the article was older than one month. --Sbluen 15:38, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Thanks. My bad. --Bear 15:41, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

I'd like your feelings

Could y'all read my latest piece the Colossus of Barbie and let me know what y'all think? I'd liketo hear (or better yet read) you ideas for improvement. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 02:30, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

I like the whole concept, the digs at inbreeding, the great photoshop, and the bit of sexual humor thrown in (not overdone, but hopefully enough to sate the appetite of those that seem to need it in an article), but I must admit I didn't actually laugh. I read it 3 times just to make sure it wasn't from my mood. That said, I don't think it needs to be "fixed" in any way. On my subsequent read-throughs I really couldn't think of anything that it lacked, and that I could add. It's an enjoyable read and very inventive. I noticed that it's been added to the Recent template, so it's probably best to see how it fares in the wild. Maybe someone will add something unexpcted that works. I appreciate you and Hardwick for adding elements to 'On a stick' that would never have occurred to me, but that are definite improvements. Sorry I can't think of any additions to return the favor.--Bear 13:48, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

The school was unsure if I had enough credits, and I found my diploma case empty as I walked across the stage at graduation.

Yes, you've discovered my greatest weakness- horrible grammar. I'm afraid my self education after high school has skipped over that area, I preferred instead to travel and read fiction while traveling instead of getting that grammar thing down once and for all. Johnny Raven helped me clean up my Map article before his demise, but other than that most of my stuff is in dire need of grammar Nazification. Anyone who wants to is of course welcome, and often I notice that minor tweaking really makes a big difference in readability. If figured if I wrote 100 full length articles I might get noticed more, so that's the goal at present. :) --2nd Lt. Claudius Prime 16:51, 28 April 2006 (UTC)

Are goats second class citizens?

I think they should be standing in the first class rows in Bagdad airlines newest DC-10. Nice place to be sure...You should start your Root of all evil Tourism Industry, A Tourist of One, and I'll sell them armour. If you get a chance, do you mind reading my article Identity Theft? nOOb virginity is a stigma I have to stand up for. Criticism is relished and a bit of mustard makes it tasty.Thanks. --Severian 13:55, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Would you mind looking at my anal glands?

Stop thinking in the transitive sense. I would be most appreciative if you would take a look at my Anal glands article? Feedback, correction? I think it might be VFH calibre. Dame PotY WotM 2xPotM 17xVFH VFP Poo PMS •YAP• 13:41, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

Crack Vandal

Hooray, Todd Lyons saves the day when no other admins were looking! Spang talk 13:25, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Caught me lurking, I guess. I had to do something.  :) I'm still officially 'dead', bur I'll be back to work here part-time May 1st. Nice work on the reverts (and to Hinoa4). ~ Todd Lyons GUN etc. (UnNews) (yadda)3 13:29, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Heh, you picked just the right time to lurk then! Reverting the crackvandal is always fun. I'll leave you to your lurking for now, then :). I'm sure it'll be good to have you back! (And thanks for the {{Good Deed}}!) Spang talk 13:34, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

The banned users can edit their own userpages. While I think it's cool that he's blocked thrice as infinitely now, that's not going to do much. —Hinoa KUN (talk) 21:52, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Ah. Another wonderful new "feature" of MediaWiki 1.6. Broken sigs... Can't wait to see what other treats await me. BTW, I'd suggest not responding to talkpage bait, even in your edit summary comments. ~ T. (talk) 22:04, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
So how many times are you planning on infinitely banning that user, really? 22:20, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Now that I'm leading MoneySign 2 to 1, I'm satisfied again. If he (or any of you other wiseguys) tries to one-up me again, then I'll act accordingly. :) ~ T. (talk) 22:29, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Can't rest, for some reason

Todd, you might have noticed that I've been more active around here lately, which could mean that I'm "testing the waters," or maybe I'm just bored... but I've been thinking a bit about what happened, and I've concluded that I was way too hard on you. I don't usually get quite so upset about things, and the others involved don't really seem to have suffered much for it. Putting aside the whole issue of who I actually am (not), you could hardly be blamed for being coy about it, given the reputation that person has in Wikiland - something I was largely unaware of until last month. What's more, "strike" wasn't your word, it wasn't even Dave G's word - it was Imrealized's word, of all people. (He and I haven't communicated in a while, but I'm sure he didn't mean it in a pejorative sense any more than you did.) So, I wanted to apologize to you for all that. I'm still not happy with the whole situation, not by a long shot, but at least the WP types seem to be leaving me alone for the time being... Hopefully it's because they've finally come to their senses - there's been a near-explosion of anti-WP criticism lately, and since practically none of it mentions Uncyclopedia at all, maybe they're finally figuring out they have slightly more enemies than they can count on one hand, even if I am one of them, as of last month! (I might go and rewrite the Daniel Brandt article, just to keep messing with their heads.)

So, I hope you can forgive me at least a little bit, and I'll see you around, OK? (Btw, did you see this? I was really touched!)  c • > • cunwapquc? 16:57, 29 April 2006 (UTC)

Yes, I really appreciated Elvis and the gang for the big send off. It actually made it easier for me to remain mostly dead for the last 5 weeks, rather than tempt me to start writing and editing like usual after a week or two. I hope your rest was as good as mine was. From the looks of your user page though, it's clear you're 'still not happy'. I hope that changes, but for now it's good to see you back in some capacity. :) ~ T. (talk) 09:54, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
