Uncyclopedia is an encyclopedia parody wiki that is hosted by Wikia.

Uncyclopedia is a sister project of Wikia, along with Memory Alpha. Unlike most Wikia sites, Uncyclopedia is released under the Creative Commons by-nc-sa license rather than the GFDL.

The goal of this project is to provide the world's misinformation in the least redeeming and most searingly sarcastic and humourous way possible. People who come to Uncyclopedia a lot are affectionately known by parents and children alike as UnclePsychopedaphiles.

Désencyclopédie is a Wikia which is a sister project of Uncyclopedia. The wiki is a parody site in the French language. It was inspired by Uncyclopedia and may include translations of its content. Other language editions are shown at Template:Languages.

As of August 11th 2005, Uncyclopedia ranks as the #2 most visited Wikia-hosted site among Popular Wikia. Uncyclopedia is second only to the English-language, however the Prime Directive expressly prohibits interference in Uncyclopedia's plans for world domination by wikis from other planets. Damn you trekkies!

Popularity contest[edit]

For those obsessed with so-called-experts, Wikipedia has an article about:
The Contest.

The popularity contest, or more simply, the contest, is a contest to see who is the most popular. (Popularity is defined as the total number of edits a user makes; same as it was in high school.) Do note that you have absolutely no chance of being more popular than I am, so don't even try. Now send me lots of money and praise me to the highest heavens.
