You're just going pop by every half a year, spend a couple of days and vanish again, breaking my heart in the process? Shame on you!20:57, January 26, 2010 (UTC)
Oh no, this time will be different, starting with this- Horace. But thank you for noticing! -- 20:58, January 26, 2010 (UTC)
Are you really an admin/sysop?
I didn't see your name listed here. If you are an admin/sysop, please forgive me. If not, I'd take that template off your user page ASAP, before a real sysop sees it. Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn) 19:05, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
- I was in the process of striking out the above adding the below when you posted--edit conflict!
- Nevermind, I just saw this. Sorry about that. I am curious, though, how does that work? Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn) 19:11, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
- Back in the day Todd gave us rank for being a total bad ass even though often our comedic efforts were not recognized by the community at large... I've written a decent amount of articles but I stay pretty under the radar. I notice that most of the people on the list have not been active for many years, and I'm glad to be back and noticed so soon. -- 19:18, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
Duty Calls! Imperial Colonization has been commandeered! With a shiny new, waterproof coat, we're heading out to sea once again. We need you for our next colonization. You have one week to nominate or vote from right now, Sunday the 31st of January 2010, to Saturday the 6th of February 2010. (See Protocol for how to nominate an article for Colonization. And remember, if you vote for an article that means you intend to help colonize it.) Then starting Sunday, 7 February 2010, we will start colonizing another savage land (i.e., improving whichever article gets the most votes). Come on board and vote or nom now, to the glory of Her Majesty!
EXTRA: Our most recent colonization, Transformers, has just been Pee Reviewed. If you're interested in making improvements, please check out the article and the review. With a little work, we may have another glorious Feature article! Wouldn't that be just spiffy? And remember, if you participate and this does get featured, you get one half feature credit!
ATTENTION COLONIZERS: WE ARE RECREATING CREATIONISM
The Bible says God created the world in six days by himself--our crew of talented colonizers can surely recreate an article in a week and a half! Remember, any Colonizer is welcome to work on our current project, which is the Creationism article. But before you begin, check "READ THIS FIRST" at the top. From Sunday, 7 February to Wednesday, 10 February 2010, a hearty crew of brave colonizers plotted a strong course for the article by consensus. We have the beginning of a great colonization, so go forth and colonize to the glory of Her Majesty!
Special Note for Lobsterbacks (i.e. those who signed up but haven't yet worked on a successful colonization). We plan to keep your name on the honored membership list if you make worthwhile contribution to the article or other parts of Imperial Colonization between 31 January 2010 and the end of this project. If your name is removed from the list, you are welcome to reapply when you plan to become active. IC Buccaneer Admiral WHY??? (stratagems) 05:26, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
About the current IC project
I saw your note about not reading the description, and appreciate you posting. However, I fear what you're doing is still off the track of what we're looking for. The consensus is for this to sound like it's scientific and encyclopedic. Your beginning of Genesis is fairly on track, then goes to "Woman was created from man but that's not evolution that's just a big favor they owe us" which is off the encyclopedic-scientific track, as is "I had one of those moments before I started this article," etc. Think about it--do these sound scientific and encyclopedic? The goal here is that this almost sounds like it was a part of Wikipedia, at least at the beginning, then slowly--dare I say it?--devolves into a pseudo-scientific support for Creationist power. Rabbi WHY??? (shmuesn) 20:11, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
- Yeah I was hoping we could move Monkey Business down a bit and keep it for later in the article, but feel free to remove or rewrite anything you like. I understand it's a collaboration and I missed the boat (pun intended?) when you'all decided how you were going to write it. I won't be offended by whatever changes you make, just experimenting around a bit...Scrap everything I've written so far if you think it's way off from what you guys want in there...-- 20:22, February 11, 2010 (UTC)
IC BATMAN HAS BEGUN
Zowie Colonizer! Our next colonization is announced: BATMAN. As you're one of the few brave enough to take on Batman himself, meaning you volunteered to help do it, you're receiving this special dark knight notice. We are now planning to put together what may well become the greatest superhero of all time! Or maybe a kid who hands players bats. Or maybe.... Get your mind stimulated, flap those fleshy, featherless wings and fly out of the batcave and get to colonizing! (Or if you don't care about this overly-dramatic four-color dialog, just go to Uncyclopedia_talk:Imperial_Colonization/project and post your ideas.) Over and out. Rabbi WHY???

Imperial Colonization: Creationism and Batman
IMPORTANT: If you want to make comments on any part of this message, please post your comments on my talk page. I've sent this notice out to about 40 people, and will likely never see your response if you put it on your talk page. But if you insist on doing it anyway (sigh), please at least start a new section using == Your comments == below my signature and make comments there. This message is set up as a template, so if you try to make edits in this message, it will edit it everywhere, and get me nasty notes from admins.
The seventh day of Creationism
If you haven't heard the rumour, it's true. The new and improved and absolutely perfect version of Creationism has been created. And because it was so perfect, we got it Pee Reviewed so it could be even more perfect. Post-review edits are being done, and will be completed very soon so our colonized version can replace the current Creationism.
I gave credit on The Big Board to every colonizer who worked on the article (if I somehow missed you, put a note on my talk page). I really appreciate everyone's help; I think we have a great article. If this gets featured, however, I feel that only those who made the more substantial contributions should get co-feature credit. Otherwise, someone could add two words and get 1/2 credit for writing a feature article, which doesn't seem fair. (But note that half a dozen people or more could each get 1/2 credit; that's one of the advantages of being a colonizer as aren't limited by the laws of mathematics). Any opinions on this or anything in this notice are welcome on the IC talk page. Buccaneers traditionally work by group consensus, and I'm all for
sharing the blame tradition.
Our current colonization is Batman. Writing on it begins now. By consensus built over the past few days, this will feature a psychiatrist talking with Bruce Wayne, a delusional Arkham Asylum mental patient who thinks he is some hero named Batman--or is he delusional? See I'M BATMAN for the guidelines for this article.
Any colonizer is welcome to edit the article! Any non-colonizer who wants to apply is welcome to do so on the Imperial Colonization page. We promise we won't throw you to the sharks. Well, probably not.
We are taking nominations and votes for our next project. As per previous IC discussions, old nominations which aren't in the lead and which haven't received any recent votes will be removed. Check out the current nominations before they fade into history--but an article removed from the list can certainly be renominated. Nominate and vote on the IC page.

Actually, I'm looking for a temporary assistant/permanent successor as head of Imperial Colonization. I got put in charge of IC because I kept bugging a certain admin. I'd say, "Why isn't somebody doing this with IC?" and "Why isn't somebody doing that with IC?" So that admin basically said "Why, you're somebody; go do it" (see discussion here). But as you can see, I took on the position planning to update IC, get it moving again, and see it through one colonization. Well, that happened. IC was updated and reactivated and, thanks to some great colonizers, Creationism was recreated in a spirit of cooperation, was rewritten on deadline, was Pee Reviewed and, as a bonus, was voter-chosen as a feature article within about a day of being nommed. Our current project, Uncyclopedia:Imperial Colonization/Batman is scheduled to be written by 20 March, and then we'll begin another. IC is moving...and I'm looking for someone to keep it moving. If interested, please post a note on the IC talk page--experienced and successful users only need apply. Ability to say "ARRRRR" like a pirate is not required, but would be nice.
A reminder that you voted for Batman as part of Imperial Colonization (see here). Remember that if you vote for, it means you intend to help write the article (see there). Fortunately, the writing period has received an extension of one week to 20 March, so you still have time to make edits. Otherwise, you may find yourself a "client" at Arkham Asylum. Rabbi WHY???

Vote now for Colonisation
Hello ladies, gentlemen, and other,
As you may be aware we have now reached the point where April's Colonisation, Discordianism, has been successfully moved to mainspace, and we are currently voting on our colonisation for May.

Voting is taking place here as we speak. As of 1st of May I will be announcing the page that will get our tender mercies, so I encourage you to vote - or nominate - now.
