"In other languages" sidebar?[edit]

I think Uncyclopedia should have an "in other languages" sidebar like Wikipedia, including links to articles in sister Uncyclopedias. Links to other languages at the top of articles look intrusive, and other less-enlightened users sometimes delete them.--Ryoske 03:18, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

It appears that you're starting to do so now. Thank you very much! (^-^)--Ryoske 05:58, 8 March 2006 (UTC)
Blame credit should go to Jason for setting this one up to link from the main Uncyclopedia [only] to destination pages in (ca de el en es fi fr he it la pl ru). --Carlb 00:26, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
It works both ways for the 12 uncyclopedias now.--Rataube 07:03, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
I've noticed that the french and the polish have been interlinking their articles with the english big sister. This feature has been only recently enabled in the Spanish uncy, so I call all the foreign uncys to interlink with us too. I've alredy added a few english, french and polish links from the spanish sista, and a few links from English articles to Spanish. Feel free to add more interwiki links by yourselves from both the Spanish and your home uncy.--Rataube 07:13, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Wait, I have a better idea, this is done by bots in some WPs! Could someone make a bot that you feed with a list of articles, say in Spanish, and with the list of what it would likely to be their translation, say in english, and then the bot checks if the article exists and if it does, it automatically adds the link in the english page? --Rataube 07:44, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Русский - Russian[edit]

Привет, афтары :) ! Я начал титаническую работу по созданию Russian Uncyclopedia - создал категорию Ru:Абсурдопедия , немного прочистил главную страницу. Тут еще много работы, и пожалуйста, будьте осторожны. Первое, что надо будет сделать в будущем (как только статей будет больше 10) - упорядочить русскйи раздел, создать глобальные тематические разделы: Люди, Страны, Наука и т.п., поменять шаблон первой страницы. Если вы затеваете нечто большее, чем добавление парочки своих статей - оставляйте здесь запись об этом, чтобы все были в курсе. Удачи! Пускай фантазия вдохновляет вас. Да, со мной можно связаться мылом shelya(at)ua.fm или здесь через User talk. Ваш Shelya 03:19, 21 Oct 2005 (UTC)

Привет и с моей стороны. Собираюсь писать регулярно и настолько много, насколько смогу(время, увы, не всегда позволяет). Написать нужно много, и ещё больше хотелось бы согласовать с английской частью Анциклопедии. К тому же, некоторые статьи настолько хороши, что было бы неплохо их перевести, возможно с небольшими изменениями. Хотелось бы знать, кто и как рулит русским разделом? Norro.

Пока здесь общинная демократия с круговой порукой. Главного модератора нет, и не думаю, что в ближайшее время он нужен - нас мало. Я предлагаю писать любые статьи, не нарушая правил ессно, и не конфликтуя друг с другом. Претензии решаем приватом и только в крайнем случае идем жаловаться админам. Желательно, чтобы с любым решением были согласны все. Norro, спасибо за участие, пиши исчо, только статьи, а не доносы :) --Shelya 00:30, 2 Jan 2006

И вам тоже доброе утро :) Epi 23:55, 13 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Ну здрасьте! Наткнулся вот на этот сайт. понравилось. Зарегился. Могу что-то написать. Но как просмотреть всё, что уже есть на русском? --Jekader 14:46, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Классная задумка. Написал статью: Babel:Ru/Ленин Вопрос о просмотре всех русскоязычных статей продолжает стоять ребром. --Baal 21:57, 12 February 2006 (UTC)


Language Links[edit]

Should we change our links to point to desencyclopedie:Accueil, w:c:nonsensopedia:Strona główna rather than to our own fr: and pl: --The Right Honourable Maj Sir Elvis UmP KUN FIC MDA VFH Bur. CM and bars UGM [email protected] (Petition) 12:42, 23 Sep 2005 (UTC)

That would depend on whether we want to recognize them as sista projects. I personally prefer not to treat them officially as such as they are operated by different people and don't seem to have much of a connection to us; they also license their articles under the Wikia-default GNU FDL unlike us. However, links on :fr and :pl would probably be good for all of us as our non-English projects seem to be going nowhere. --stillwaters/Talk 23:20, 23 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Names for Chinese and Japanese Uncyclopedias[edit]

For the Japanese Uncyclopedia, we already have an unofficial name, バ科事典(Bakajiten), popularized by 絵文録ことのは, which is a pun on the Japanese word for encyclopedia, 百科事典 (hyakkajiten, literally "Reference Book on a hundred subjects"). Bakajiten literally would mean something like "Foolish/Silly/Ridiculous Reference Book". So I suppose if we ever start a Japanese Uncyc, we can use this name in association with アンサイクロペディア (or however we want to transcribe it).

A Chinese Uncyclopedia had been started already, and is named 伪基百科/偽基百科 (wèijī bǎikē); this is a wordplay on the Chinese Wikipedia (维基百科/維基百科, wéijī bǎikē). Wéijī is simply a Chinese transliteration of the word wiki, and so the current Uncyc version simply replaces the first character with another similar-sounding character that means "fake" or "counterfeit". The whole phrase basically means (Fake)-Wikipedia.

This obviously requires the reader to be familiar with Wikipedia, and doesn't give us a unique identity independent of WP.

Another thing we can do, of course, is to make a wordplay on the Chinese word for encyclopedia, 百科全书/百科全書 (baike quanshu, "Comprehensive Book on a hundred subjects"). A possibility I came up with was 百科全输/百科全輸 (identical pronunciation, "Failing a hundred subjects"). This sounds pretty Uncyclopedic, but overall it doesn't seem good enough to be an official name. Any ideas? --stillwaters/Talk 23:26, 5 Sep 2005 (UTC)

I suggest using the the simple katakana name of アンサイクロペディア officially, with a caption or a reference to バ科辞典 in the logo/on the front page. Alternatively, アンサイクロペディア wouldn't be instantly understandable by most Japanese (even if they could understand 'Encyclopedia') but アンチサイクロペディア (anti-cyclopedia) would be understood by most, and though it isn't as elegant in English as uncyclopedia, you can't really apply the rules of English elegance to English words as said in Japanese. 04:45, 5 Dec 2005 (UTC)
  • I don't know, I actually speak Japanese and prefer the name バ科事典, as Japanese also like punning.--Ryoske 01:43, 17 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Multilingual interwikis[edit]

I think I've seen some multilingual wikis on Wikia, so I suppose it's possible to add new language interwikis to Uncyclopedia. Since we supposedly already have a few main pages done, should we try to set up multilingual wikis as soon as possible before our feeble attempts at organizing them end up cluttering up the English Uncyclopedia?

This would also help with the recent country-related vandalism, which was hard to deal with because of the non-English discussion. The way we dealt with that was, I think, not very good, because neither limiting the scope of discussion or culling the number of articles is too beneficial for this kind of wiki.

Should we start planning that once we hit 10,000 articles, which will probably happen soon? --stillwaters/Talk 12:00, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

The issue, as I see it, is who admins them? I got sysopped here, as did many others, by being a moderately useful member, showing some vestiges of sanity along with the ability to think logically, and make moderately sensible decisions. It's very hard to make those judgements of individuals who don't speak the same language. Hell, I have a hard time with Elvis and all the non-standard english he speaks sometimes. ;)
Anyway, I'm all for new language interwikis, but I see us floating between two scenarios:
  1. We don't have many or any sysops, and it's old-west, vigalante justice.
  2. We sysop a number of people we don't really know, and they make a nice little ruling junta.
Without a good grasp of the language, to see who's adding what, and what their personality is like, I don't see us being able to sysop people in the nice balance we have here. I'm a little hasty on the delete and ban keys - Elvis (among others) generally keeps me honest, and mitigates my overenthusiam. For the moment, I say we take it slow. We're starting to get to know some of the bilingual people helping out with the Lithuania mess, and I think once we are comfortable with a few of them, turn them loose as admins and fire up the Lt: interwiki. --Famine 16:15, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Addendum: We'll also need some good people to translate essential pages like Uncyclopedia:How To Be Funny And Not Just Stupid, Uncyclopedia:About, Help:HowTo, and Flamewar_Guidelines, so that we get "Uncyclopedia in another language" instead of "Horrible Mess in another language" or "Wikipedia v 1.5 in another language". --Famine 16:53, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Multilingual Co-ordination[edit]


There seems to be a pattern on WP of creating endless lists of users which look like:


There also seems to be a just-as-redundant collection of templates for inclusion on userpages, usually along the lines of {{commons:meta:template:yaddayaddayadda:userlang-ca|"This user, like, speaks [[Canadia]]n but mumbles a lot, eh? Please send [[Canadian Tire]] money at once."}}

Does any of this stuff actually get used for anything useful?


This is a cut-n-paste-n-search-n-replace wiki with uncyclo from wikipedia. Not at all finished, just a stub until I can spend some time futzing with it. We really need some more languages, and I'd like to take a stab at it. Or at least prod someone else into action. --Famine 22:35, 27 May 2005 (EDT)

Français - French[edit]

Okay, see, there's a site that requested that they handle FR uncyc. They're doing it now, and they'll join up with us once they're comfy. --Chronarion 23:41, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Wonder if they'll think we still have a long way to go... even if fr: in Uncyclopedia itself just doubled in size (from one article to two) it's still big like three apples («grande comme trois pommes») which isn't very big at all. --Carlb 01:30, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Heya guys! I'm the French-speaking guy who is starting a FR uncyc! Yaaaay me! I'm in the final stages of getting hosting for the wiki, after which I'll bring aboard my elite cadre of typewriting quantum monkeys to start populate it. And yeah, I saw the FR section of the uncyc, and I'm not worried about competition. Heheh! I wanna join the uncyc 'family' after a little while, because first, I'd like to find the right tone for the French uncyclopedia. This wiki rocks, by the way. --Philo 01:41, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'm trying to add some sites to German. I started by adding several words to the German page, and am linking to them individually. Is there a better way? (Übrigens, Reeperbahn now has a home at Uncyclopedia) --Sam

How can I become admin, bureaucrat? NCurse 06:48, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
You mean an admin of an hungarian uncyclopedia? Well, if you create it you'll authomatically become a bureaucrat. To create a new one you can request it at Wikia:Start a New Wikia.--Rataube 13:24, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
Um, it alredy exists, although it's not wikia hosted as sannse told you in the forum. Then try contacting the bureaucrats over there.--Rataube 14:00, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Greek Uncyclopedia[edit]

We want to get it starting. What needs to be done? --UnDada 11:55, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Do you mean here, or your own wiki on Wikicites? --Splaka 10:10, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
I was thinking of a wiki just like the french, german, italian etc. editions, so i guess a new wiki.. Many thanks. --UnDada 15:09, 23 February 2006 (UTC)
Easiest thing in the world. Go to Wikia:Start_a_new_Wikia and fill out the request form. Uncyclopedia sistah-language projects are often accepted. --Splaka 03:18, 24 February 2006 (UTC)

Swedish Uncyclopedia[edit]

Hello. A bunch of guys, me included, at the forums of hehu.se, wish to start an off-site swedish Uncyclopedia. However, they want to start it at hehu.se (which, otherwise, is a fan-site to some swedish cartoons parodising popular Disney figures like Donald Duck), but I notice other Uncyclopedias are Wikia. Is there some sort standardization about Uncyclopedias having to be wikicities, or can it be hosted on other sites? --DeathByPie 16:30, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Of the 8 sista-projects existing, only one is not hosted on Wikia: http://Uncyclopedia.de ... If you did start a sista-project, you should try to use MediaWiki software to keep it somewhat compatable. That all the other sistas are running on Wikia is just a matter of convenience, not so much of convention, as it is much easier to have Wikia/Wikia host and maintain your wiki for you. --Splaka 01:40, 28 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikia can host the swedish site for you and if you can get hehu.se to agree, they could offer a URL redirect. Angela at Wikia could help with it by sending in an email to wikia and asking for help

Norwegian Uncyclopedia[edit]

We are a couple of persons considering starting of a norwegian version of Uncyclopedia, a little discussion about a norwegian(ish) name has been started here. Any good tips can also be mailed to me so we can get some real cooporation here. A .no domain would be the most optimal, but the norwegian domain rules only allows companies to get .no domains.

Interwiki links[edit]

Hi all! How can we create interwiki links to other languages? I am refering to the interlanguage links that appear in the sidebar and link to the corrresponding article in another language/sister project. Cheers. --UnDada 12:25, 10 May 2006 (UTC)

Just add a wikicode "link" in the form: [[fr:Special:Recentchanges]] (for example). It parses it for display in the appropriate box (like categories, rather than inline like normal links). If you want to add a language, contact Carlb... --Splaka 04:16, 11 May 2006 (UTC)

Note that (as of May 2006) the links only work from a half-dozen of the languages (although they can link to about a dozen). The address linked for the German wiki is also outdated, causing these links to error 404 - hopefully this is temporary. Any changes to the lists would be out of my hands for Wikia-hosted languages wikia:user:jasonr might be able to do something, but individual admins can't. There is an extension m:Special_page_to_work_with_the_interwiki_table which can fix this limitation, but sadly it is not installed on any of the Wikia domains. --Carlb 06:22, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

Meta also needs a full external link to gain access, unless you're on an external (non-Wikia) site with that Special:Interwiki extension installed (which, for most of us, will be "nope"). It should be possible to link back here from meta using the uncyclopedia: prefix.

In the portuguese main page there are 19 interwiki links, 7 more than in here and other uncys I've visited. Does it mean all of those are alredy available too? It seems so...--Rataube 14:12, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

That depends on which wiki you're on bug:324. On Wikia, the list of destinations hasn't been updated since sometime before the Chinese (false base on a hundred subjects) uncyclopedias were created. They're more than two months outdated. Only ten still work. There should be twenty-one.

Even then, these links only work from some wikia (en, es, fr, he, pl, ru) and not others - and with ten of the twenty-one languages working as valid destinations (de, fi interwiki links are now broken, the others too recent to even be on this list). On external sites? Likely won't work from Meta, Ikkepedia.net or the Swedish wiki, should work to all languages from .info and .ws - although if we have multiple sites for a language (no, fi, sv) it's anyone's guess where those links will land even if available. We never did find out what happened to peelonet (fi).

Wikia are linkable by other means (for instance, w:c:de.uncyclopedia: as an interwiki link to ze master race that has invaded der Wikia) but that doesn't put the link in the "other languages" box. There is a {{lien}} template which takes a language code and destination pagename as arguments, spitting out whatever link it can for that language. An ugly kludge, not particularly interwiki.py friendly and only half the links make it into the little box. If it were to be ripped off copied for use on en: it would need a new name. :) --Carlb 16:58, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

Korean interwiki[edit]

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I think the korean interwiki here is wrong. ko: points to ko.uncyclopedia.info, but wiki.peremen.name looks like the "real thing". For example: On Russian Reversal, there's a link to, but that page only exists on wiki.peremen.name, not on ko.uncyclopedia.info. This was only one example, but i've seen others.

Also, the portuguese uncyclo, Desciclopédia is already pointing to wiki.peremen.name.

I'm at the Thai Uncyclopedia and I am making a parody to "Script Jad Hai" in Thai Wikipedia that can auto insert the templates(Current supported: Request deletion, Uncompleted, Copied from Thai Wikipedia).

What about the Norwegian Uncyclopedia? There are two variants of the Norwegian language, named Bokmål and Nynorsk. The ISO 639-1 codes are:

  • no — Bokmål
  • nn — Nynorsk

Which is or are the site(s) of the Norwegian Uncyclopedia? How does the interwiki work? There was in the past http://ikkepedia.net, now closed. Now there are;

  1. There is http://ikkepedia.org/
  2. There is http://ikkepedia.wikia.com/

On some Uncyclopedia (English, French, ...), the interwiki 'nn' links to 1. and the interwiki 'no' links to 2.

On some Uncyclopedia (http://ikkepedia.org, Suomi, ...), the interwiki 'nn' links to 1. and the interwiki 'no' links to 1. directly to http://ikkepedia.org/.

Fuck you! That's the Norwegian Uncyclopedia, not the Suomic Uncyclopedia! 17:04, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

The interwikis are messed up. For instance, the 'no' interwiki in the English page Suicide links to http://ikkepedia.wikia.com/wiki/Selvmord, which doesn't exist, instead the page http://ikkepedia.org/wiki/Selvmord exist.

In any case, the various Uncyclopedias should not link to a redirection site, but directly to the target one.

It is necessary also to check and fix Template:Languages about Norwegian.

ikkepedia.wikia.com vs. ikkepedia.org[edit]

Articles: ikkepedia.wikia.com: 1780 (it does also have more crap than the other one) | ikkepedia.org: 2620
Language: Ikkepedia.wikia.com: Bokmål (some nynorsk) | Ikkepedia.org: Bokmål
Sysops (active): Ikkepedia.wikia.com: 0 | Ikkepedia.org: 5

Additionally, ikkepedia.org got attention from one of Norways biggest newspapers (just on the web, though...) in May, and the same people (Not the sami people, but User:Ueland and User:Damsleth) started both wikis. My opinion is that 'nn' should be used for Ikkepedia.wikia.com and 'no' or 'nb' for ikkepedia.org.

We have already begun to translate bokmål-nynorsk. I am administrator at ikkepedia.wikia.com/wiki/ (Ikkjepedia), I was the first to begin to write & translate pages at ikkepedia.wikia.com/wiki/. 17:16, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

You may want to use caution as to what you translate. The GFDL license of ikkepedia.wikia.com is *not* compatible with the non-commercial license used in wikis such as ikkepedia.org, en.uncyclopedia.wikia.com (including the babel: namespace), *.uncyclopedia.kr, *.uncyclopedia.info, Memory Alpha, new illogicopedia.org pages and many other projects. If material from ikkepedia.org is not licensed for commercial use, it cannot lawfully be re-used in a GFDL wiki (even in translation) without the consent of each and every author who contributed to each individual page. The same applies to material which was originally translated from pages on this wiki, even after re-translation. There's nothing in CC-BY-NC-SA prohibiting translation of the content per se, just don't post the results to a GFDL wiki unless the original was either public domain or GFDL. -- 01:08, September 15, 2009 (UTC)

Norwegian Blue 18:45, 23 July 2007 (UTC) (I am (or WAS) sysop on ikkepedia.org, but have decided to leave it, and I started the article about the Sami people on uncyclopedia.)

I recommend Ikkepedia.org to be considered the main Norwegian uncyclopedia. On a good day, it has ten times as many edits than ikkepedia.wikia.com, and ikkepedia.org has active admins to take care of all the crap articles and maintain the quality of the wiki.

It is not enough to change the template: it is necessary to set up the namespace, so that, for each language, 'no' links to the correct Norwegian uncyclopedia. Laurusnobilis 22:59, 24 July 2007 (UTC)

Right. Unfortunately that can't be done directly, we need to ask wikia. It would be a good ideato inform user:Sannse. It usually takes them a long time to update.---Asteroid B61220px (aka Rataube) - Ñ 16:42, 25 July 2007 (UTC)
NOTE: The last real edit on ikkepedia.wikia.com (not robots or Laurusnobilis' message about this discussion) was 20. July. --Norwegian Blue 10:31, 25 July 2007 (UTC)

Not a new problem, see: Forum:German?#Just_say_no:.3F and Forum:Status of Ikkepedia.wikia.com for a better idea of what you're up against when it comes to Wikia and Special:Interwiki updates. Sorry. --05:52, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

This case is specially confusing. Are these two wikis in different dialects or not? And if they are not, what difference does it make which one is "nn" and which one is "no". I agree with Laurusnobilis that we do need consistency, all "nn" pointing to the same one, and all "no" pointing to the other. Didnt Sannse and Carl sort this one out some time ago?---Asteroid B61220px (aka Rataube) - Ñ 07:32, 28 July 2007 (UTC)
Ikkepedia.org and Ikkepedia.wikia.com are supposed to be in different dialects, hence the nb: and nn: prefixes. I don't know why they made two separate wikis for this, since people write in the dialect they prefer. The biggest difference between the two wikis is that ikkepedia.org is building a community with an active forum, a good community portal and help pages that actually tries to help people start using the site. Should I talk to Sannse about this? Even if i have the grammar of a 6 year old? --Trubadurix 14:09, 29 July 2007 (UTC)
Yes, by all means please do raise the issue, either on user talk:sannse or in the Village Dump. It does need to be addressed. Grammar is the least of our concerns.
The founders of this project originally started as ikkepedia.wikia.com, were dissatisfied with what they saw and (citing unspecified "performance reasons") moved the Norwegian project to ikkepedia.net - an independent wiki and de-facto predecessor to what is now ikkepedia.org. There were attempts to link from ikkepedia.wikia.com's main page to the new wiki, user:sannse reverted these edits as Wikia chose to continue operating ikkepedia.wikia.com as a direct competitor to the original community.
Wikia was unwilling to link no: to ikkepedia.net or its successors as they wanted to drive traffic to their own site. This effectively splits the project, and for motives which have little to do with the question of the nynorsk dialects. With no: unavailable for use by ikkepedia.net, nn: was used as an alternate. Arbitrary, but the best we could get at the time, given that en:'s servers are controlled not by Uncyclopedians but by Wikia.
On any of the non-Wikia versions of Uncyclopedia, both nb: and nn: do link to ikkepedia.org - but as far as I know, no version of the nb: prefix ever was created here on the English-language Uncyclowikia. Perhaps nb: as a prefix should be created, if only because marking something nb: infers that it should be noted as being important? --Carlb 17:01, 29 July 2007 (UTC)

Is it possible to merge the two Norwegian versions of Uncyclopedia? Laurusnobilis 14:00, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Technically it is. In practice, only if one of the two remains closed after the merging.---Asteroid B61220px (aka Rataube) - Ñ 14:38, 30 July 2007 (UTC)
Um, technically it isn't, as the licenses are incompatible.
CC and GNU? It's been done before.---Asteroid B61220px (aka Rataube) - Ñ 18:56, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi, Sorry for the late reply here, things are a bit crazy for me right now (I'm in Taipei for Wikimania). What Carl says is basically true (although it has Carl's particular slant of course :) Yes, we usually keep wikis open even if the community, or part of it, choose to move on. That means that there are two Norwegian wikis, which is a bit confusing. My favourite solution is to have two sections for internal and external links (I think Carl came up with this one). That seems the best way to ensure there are no conflicts and clear links to all. I will bring up the idea again at our meetings here at Wikimania, but if anyone has other ideas of the best way to resolve this confusion, that would be cool -- sannse<staff/> (talk) 08:45, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

If the nynorsk is on the old wikia, just swap no: and nn: in the interwikis and it should be fine? -- 20:19, 4 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm happy as long as there is no conflicts, but if Ikkepedia.wikia.com is to remain open, the project really needs sysops and bureaucrats. The site's content is 90% vanity, "cyberbullying"(where many pages includes the victim's full name and phone number, adress...) and advertising. It's becoming a scrapheap where users who's been blocked from Ikkepedia.org for this reason may vandalize without anyone being able to stop them. --Trubadurix 15:36, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
Is that an offer to take it on? ;) Sysops there would be great -- http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1e/Shiny3.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/b/b2/Shiny2.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/5/54/Shiny1.png sannse http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1f/Pretty.png esnnas http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/5/54/Shiny1.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/b/b2/Shiny2.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1e/Shiny3.png 23:38, 12 August 2007 (UTC)
As sad as I am that the two projects cannot be merged, I will take on the task to clean up and start building a community at ikkepedia.wikia.com. My user ID at the ikkepedia.wikia.com poject is "Knotebas". --Trubadurix 22:13, 14 August 2007 (UTC)
OK, you are all set there :) -- http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1e/Shiny3.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/b/b2/Shiny2.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/5/54/Shiny1.png sannse http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1f/Pretty.png esnnas http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/5/54/Shiny1.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/b/b2/Shiny2.png http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/1/1e/Shiny3.png 09:54, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Problems with other languages[edit]

Latverian is incorrect, it should be lt: -> http://juokopedija.org/wiki/ and also et: -> http://uncyclopeedia.org/wiki/

Most languages don't link to bg (Български). For instance, the page bg:Шаблон:Q exist, and is [1] but the interwiki don't work.

In Indonesian and Slovenčina, these interwiki don't work: bg:Шаблон:Q, sr:Шаблон:Цитат, th:แม่แบบ:Q, tr:Şablon:Q, see id:Templat:Q.

From Slovakian, many of the outbound interwikis were broken. It was about 50% last I looked.
bs: -> http://bs.neciklopedija.org/wiki/ and bg: -> http://bg.oxypedia.net/wiki/
Is Bosnian even worth adding? The whole proposal looks like bs: to me.
Oh, and from some of the Wikia, it's not 50% outbound that are broken... it's 100%. JavaScript Uncyclopedia, for instance, has no outbound links at all. -- 15:08, 25 January 2008 (UTC)

Which is or are the Svenska server(s)? Laurusnobilis 14:00, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

If today is Wednesday then Swedish is probably http://psyklopedin.org but it seems to be a moving target. http://wikiindex.org/psyklopedin has a full list for that wiki -- 18:46, 30 July 2007 (UTC)

Why all content created after December 5-th has disappeared in Ukrainian http://uk.inciklopedii.org/ --Vetal 14:09, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Hello, I'm an admin from stupidedia.org, the biggest German-language satire and fun wiki (18.400 articles). We would like to start a cooperation with Uncyclopedia or join the Uncyclopedia network if that's possible in some way. Unfortunately, Carlb who organizes this stuff is inactive and didn't respond to our requests. Can anybody tell us what to do now? --Smilo12 13:09, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
