Welcome to UnNews[edit]

You'll notice I've ICU tagged your article, UnNews:42 demoted to Penultimate Answer because it's kind of ugly, and doesn't look like an UnNews article. I didn't bother to read much of it because of my overwhelming duties as an admin, so I'll just let you fix it, if you'd like. It may even be featured as a lead story. Read on, absorb the wisdom of the unnews collective, and become one with everything. Cheers! rev. zim_ulator (Talk - Edits Logs) I am the dirt under your rollers. 21:00, 16 April 2007 (UTC)

PEEreview[edit]

ThinkerToilet.jpg The article The Doctor has been reviewed by PuppyOnTheRadio(talk)
Version as at 25 July 2009 PEE review
I'm not going to do the second review, but this is a million times better, and I'd probably replace the existing Doctor Who page with this. <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 01:54, 27/07/2009

Pee Review Selling Drugs[edit]

Hey, I like your idea of converting my article into a HowTo, thing is, I have no idea how. As you may already know I'm a bit of a n00b. Do you have any pointers?

Six Hats[edit]

Hey, is this better than before? <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 22:21, 28/07/2009

Ah, you beat me in finding all those spelling errors. Yes, in short, I think it is better than before. Nice job. MacMania 23:13, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Whoops, I meant spelling and grammar errors. Isn't it ironic?
No it isn't. MacMania 23:22, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
No. I've learnt all about irony from popular culture, and I can't see in any way how this is like rain on your wedding day. But Yar! I don't spell/grammar check things completely until I'm happy with the content and layout. There's a few places where I've slipped into passive verbs in here, <opinion>but it fits in with the overall voice, which is just below encyclopaedic</opinion>. <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 00:46, 29/07/2009

Re: The Doctor[edit]

Hope you don't mind me taking my feedback to your talk page for this one, I just think it makes it easier for you to pick up rather than having to navigate back to mine all the time.

Alright, I have read through your article for a second time and I'm generally pleased with the changes that you have made to it now. As far as layout goes there are still a couple of problems that I can see on my precursory read through, you have done well to get rid of the image collisions from the top, just make sure it doesn't reoccur with the template and the Tardis image at the bottom of the page.

The incarnations of The Doctor are also a lot better, and I am very glad to see someone actually making use of HTBFANJS, best thing for you to do here is to now use your initiative to trim the section or add to it. Think about ways to satirise every person you have chosen to be The Doctor. It is not against HTBFANJS to describe what Hugh Grant might have done as a powerful time lord.... I suspect that it is too hideous to contemplate. I realise you set down a reason why they don't have a description, but you could make use of the space rather than leaving what they did up to the reader. You have to remember that while HTBFANJS is an invaluable asset there is no substitute for your own initiative in going through an article. Your tone is much better too.

Ultimately I would: wait for the article to be proofread, if it starts taking too long you can drop one of the more senior members a message on their talk page, while you are waiting for that you can go through and think and rethink all your words and tonal choices, this gets dull very fast but it is necessary to make the article great, and finally just revisit a couple of sections as I noted above and sort them out, you are getting into the realm of cosmetic changes now and any future changes will most likely be to the wording or structure. --ChiefjusticeDS 06:25, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I will try to make the less-satirised Doctors more satirised. MacMania 11:21, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

An excellent rewrite. You pruned out the utter dross, left what remained of the funny stuff and created some nice, original (and ultimately humorous) material. You deserve your cookie. --Guybles CUN 09:24, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

I hate to be a prick, but check out UN:SIG regarding sig height. You can get away with 16-17px (as per MrN and myself) but 20px is a little high, and looking at that image you have a whole bunch of white space above and below. I'd also be inclined to 'chop the image until it is your desired height (as per my poo in my sig) and attach a link to it, like your contribs or whatever you are wanting to whore advertise. <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 05:34, 30/07/2009

Sherlock Holmes[edit]

I'm actually feeling guilty for not doing a PEE review today, so I'm going to assuage my guilt by just saying I had a quick look at Sherlock Holmes, and I like the improvements, but I agree it still has a way to go. I was wondering where you wanted to go with it? There's all sorts of Sherlock Holmes spin-off stuff like the Star Trek episodes and this which I would love to get a copy of the original. The way I see it, you can either go as far away from the original Conan "the Barbarian" Doyle, or go back into the Holmesian universe, and just continue to expose the absurdity of the character. What are you thinking? <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 05:46, 30/07/2009

I laughed at the link. I don't know about going into spin-offs, though; that sort of stuff makes me queasy. (The premise sounds like an UnScript idea. No offence to UnScripts.) I know, I was okay with that for the Doctor, but the extra incarnations tended to stay within the bounds of reason or at least spoof the original. Although -- yes, I might consider the TNG holodeck episodes were I to write a section on Professor Moriarty. (And why on Earth haven't I?! [dramatic pause] To the Unmobile!) I should probably take a look at the local library's copy of the Annotated Sherlock Holmes, look at the annotations from those who play "The Great Game" (i.e. pretend Holmes was real and often struggle with the inconsistencies of Holmes canon because of this), and take some hints from that. (Or even the annotations on my well-worn Oxford copy of The Adventures of ... could do.)
By the way, is the signature all right now? http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN 19:43, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
OK, I gave in and made a reference to The Seven Percent Solution. But aside from the TNG episodes, that's the only spin-off I'm mentioning. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN 19:58, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Sig seems good, or at least I'm not about to make any complaints about it. (Actually it's scarily like mine, but with a hell of a less ostentation. That is a good thing.) Regarding Holmes, more than anything else I wanted to know where you were thinking of taking it, as I'm happy to throw in feedback along the way, but the reality is there was two ways to go - broad or deep. For Doctor broad works - the in-universe thing of regeneration and the length of the series and spin-offs asks for it - but with Holmes deep probably works better, but either way could work. I'll try and give it a decent review today if it's still in queue by the time I get there. So much time and so little to do. Wait a minute. Strike that. Reverse it <span class="GenOberst"> PoopyOnTheRadio </span>t 21:15, 30/07/2009
Oh! Deep it is, then. Well, it will be deep when I have developed it further. However, it is quite unlikely that I could do this sort of thing before the review gets done. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN 21:19, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
My uncle the God expert who helped me a lot on that article is also a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. He said he liked the Star Trek references and something about a Star Trek director wrote a Sherlock Holmes book you quoted? Sorry I don't remember how that worked. Also he said in one of the Star Trek movies Spock said Sherlock Holmes was his ancestor. I don't remember what movie but I can check if you want! Miley Spears 23:12, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I forgot my uncle also said he saw Leonard Nimoy who plays Spock play Sherlock Holmes. He said Nimoy wrote an article comparing the two characters. Miley Spears 23:14, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh yes, Nicholas Meyer wrote The Seven-Per-Cent Solution, wherein Holmes goes to Freud to be treated for his cocaine addiction. Same idea as the ending of that article, which was intentional.
And a Spock-Holmes connection seems natural: it's only fair that the two emotionless logical almost machine-like greats are related. It appears that Nimoy did star as Holmes in a run of a RSC (Royal Shakespeare Co) play, and also in a 15-minute television film titled The Interior Motive ... an educational film on Earth's interior. Huh.
Glad your uncle liked the article! http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN[23:49 18 Aug 2009]

Cheerio then[edit]

Big thanks for reviewing the article about copyright infringement. I've gone ahead and done a review for Cheerios as my way of showing thanks. Feel free to ignore the numeral score, I really didn't have any idea of if I should rate it high or low, hopefully the comments are more useful. I've also redone the article on Copyright infringement trying to take into account your suggestions. You can tell me what you think if you want, but you don't have to if you don't want to.Sequence 02:20, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Holmes[edit]

Having cast my eye over your article for a second time I have to say I'm very pleased to see you using the conversation between Holmes and Watson as the link between the prose, it makes the article feel much more structured. Nothing wrong with your tone in the new sections either. I would just be careful when it comes to linking into the prose, they just seem to appear, yes I know, this is another prose criticism, but just a sentence to suggest that Watson is actually typing as this conversation is taking place. Otherwise we can say that the prose requirement is just about satisfied.

I should commend your writing in general, it is superb and you have my vote for Writer of the Month already. Hope you carry on writing new stuff, it's always good to read, even if I do a review after. --ChiefjusticeDS 18:26, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Pee Review[edit]

Suffering from urinary tract problems at the moment (don't worry, nothing too serious) so I haven't been able to pee yet. Doctor says it'll improve in the evening, so you'll get your review then :) --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 13:07, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes! It looks very good now, the intro runs into it very nicely, awesome :) --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 19:50, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't know what to do about the pics though. I feel that is very important, but that might just be because I have a very short attention span and need big shiny pictures to enthrall me once in a while (exactly like the audience you are satirising I guess ;)) --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 19:56, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Firefly[edit]

I think you've made some positive improvements to it, good work on the accessibility and formatting stuff. It's very nearly there now. Just a couple more tweaks and you could be on your way to VFH. Tweaks would mostly be defined as a little bit of editing in the text to make sure your best jokes are utilised fully and a final proofread to make sure the article is wholly to your satisfaction. --ChiefjusticeDS 17:27, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Star Wars 2010[edit]

It is much better. You have my strongest support on VFH. You have sorted everything that I suggested and the critics views are a nice addition to the article. The pictures are much improved and the R2 one is far easier to see. Nothing else that I could see was a problem. Good luck on VFH. --ChiefjusticeDS 06:49, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for helping make Six Hats a feature...[edit]

2001[edit]

Afternoon, sorry about the lateness of my reply. First of all, I do like the changes you have made but I feel (and I think others will too) that there needs to be more consistency to it. Now this isn't as big a criticism as you may think, all it really needs is that when you introduce the movie at the beginning, you precede it with acknowledgement of the concept you are applying. So I think it might be best to include a little line of dialogue, even something as simple as...

crinkling of crisps packet
ssshhhhhhhhhhh!

...to make the reader aware of the approach you are taking from the start. So they know that they are watching someone watching 2001. Right, the rest of that intro section is perfect, especially the line about dialogue, so don't change that at all. What I feel you are actually missing out on a little is how extreme you should make these character's opinions. I think you should make them more caricatured because at the moment it feels a little bit too realistic, but you need to satirise the art-house enthusiast - how this film is like a kind of Bible to him, perhaps in a slightly silly way, he doesn't understand it at all but he can sure quote some people who do - against the Blockbuster special-fx ADD watcher - who can be the source of more the silly humour and more obvious criticisms that people on here might find funnier, outlandish statements and such. I mean don't take it too far, but add a bit of drama in there, a bit of conflict. Also I think you need to make it clearer whose voice is whom (I don't mean in the dialogue, but I feel there is a third voice coming over too? In the captions I mean). I would recommend making some additional comments that lie outside the 2 main voices in the captions, some that are more just witty observations (as you have at the moment) but not related to the nature of the film itself.

Alternatively, it's possible that I'm an idiot and you should go back to making funny captions for the pics and forget about any introduction of the analytical satire I suggested, for the sake of "teh lulz". I have a feeling people won't find it that funny as it is, people want immediate laughs and would properly react better to a basic satire of the film without any regard to people's reactions/opinions of the film. It's up to you, perhaps my idea is a little too ambitious... --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 12:19, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Also, cream the 2's actual characters for all their comedic worth too. Make it obvious how flawed they are in addition to satirisng the movie. I would suggest that, since I can't imagine the intellectual art-house type (or the one I have in mind) smoking a blunt or anything, you could actually have the guy that doesn't understand the movie being more the stoner and lighting up just before the final monolith, or half-way through the hyperdrive (or whatever it's called) sequence, then suddenly coming out with all kinds of randomly profound-yet-absurd statements about the film. That way the twist could be that this stoner exposes the other guy even more by making true - but exaggerated and silly - observations about the film, while the former know-it-all just has no response and is left speechless then suggesting that they watch something else (and Clockwork Orange is a good choice, yeah) to try and change topic as soon as possible, to which the stoner would reply with enthusiastic-yet-apathetic (hard to explain what I mean here unless you're familiar with stoners, something like "suuure, it's all gooood") stoner affirmative.--El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 12:32, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
You might have to watch the film stoned yourself though to get the right dialogue. --El Sid, the lazy oneparlez-vous franglais? 12:32, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Also, last "also" I promise, it would be funny if you somehow tied this final line of dialogue to a somewhat ironic subtitle right at the end. Something like "And so mankind's evolution continues...".

2001[edit]

I just read (a portion of) your article on 2001: A Space Odyssey on Pee. Though I haven't written it yet, I was thinking of using something very similar to the "dun dun dun" thing you used in your article for the beginning of my planned eventual rewrite of the existing shitty article on Stanley Kubrick. Also, your use of pictures is eerily similar to something I did in my Sergio Leone article. This means one of two things:

  • You are psychic and/or somehow steal my ideas, OR
  • We think alike, and should therefore be best friends.

I'm betting it's the later. We should do a collaboration sometime (maybe rewrite the shitty article on Stanley Kubrick).

Also, I really liked what I read of your 2001 effort.

Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 05:06, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

You're rewriting Stanley Kubrick?! Splendid!
Yeah, since I don't have psychic powers, I presume it's the latter. It all does make sense though, when you think about it: Also sprach Zarathustra is pretty iconic in 2001, and I used a lot of pictures because, like a lot of climactic shoot-outs in Sergio Leone films, Kubrick tends to convey the narrative through visuals rather than dialogue.
Rewriting Kubrick would indeed be nice, though. Quite deplorable that Uncyc doesn't have a better article, really. Since you're planning a rewrite, it's a good thing I didn't go ahead and start by myself, eh? Your rewrites of Kurosawa, Leone etc were marvellous, so I would, in fact, love to collaborate on Kubrick with you. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN[11:43 18 Aug 2009]

Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Uncyclopedia:Imperial Colonization/project (God)[edit]

First, I think the heading of this section is too long. Uncyclopedia:Pee Review/Uncyclopedia:Imperial Colonization/project (God)?

Really, thanks for your review of Uncyclopedia:Imperial Colonization/project (the God article)! I'm just one member of the IC so I can't speak for anyone but myself and, of course, God. But God said He likes your review too! I agree with a lot of your suggestions and I think some parts can be funnier. I don't think I can go back and edit right now, but maybe someone else can. You? I'll have to sleep on it first. I mean sleep on the article, not on God. But that might be fun too! Miley Spears 23:05, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Pixar[edit]

Just read that, and, though I won't have time to do a review of it, I think it should be called "Pixar". Also, it seems you have either been (subconsciously or otherwise) taking pages out of my proverbial "How to Write a Filmmaker Article" book, which means you are either a plagiarist or that we should be best friends. —Unführer Guildy Ritter von Guildensternenstein 14:00, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Or both! But I digress in jest. I've read both your articles and GlobalTourniquet's Hitchcock article, so I admit it had to be an influence. I did, however, try not to follow either too closely. Mostly I tried to walk the reader through a generic Pixar film while also displaying information about Pixar, which indeed is the basic idea of your director articles and the Hitchcock article. The major difference, of course, is that this is a studio rather than a single director. This results in Pixar's lack of frequent/memorable actors (except Ratzenberger) and visual consistency (given that there are advances in technology and differences between directors). The plots, however, tend to be more consistent in structure because they're all about self-improvement/discovery.
However, I just noticed I rambled on a lot, so I'll cut myself off by saying that that is all. http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/9/97/MacManiasig.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/0/0f/MacManiasig-cheerios.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/73/MacManiasig-holmes.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-starwars.png http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/70/MacManiasig-firefly.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/6/60/MacManiasig-pixar.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/76/MacManiasig-oregon.png http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/f/fd/MacManiasig-lesmiz.png http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/7/7c/MacManiasig-doctor.png http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/uncyclopedia/images/thumb/d/d8/HalLogo.png/16px-HalLogo.png Sir MacMania GUN[19:35 19 Aug 2009]

Reports say God is Dead?![edit]

If you go to the God article and click on the link for "Please see this article's entry," it takes you to the old nomination.

On the old one, some of the no voters said no because they believed it was just a rewrite. For example, see ChiefjusticeDS's talk page. Learning it's not a rewrite, the justice is reconsidering. But many people who try to vote will end up at the old nomination, and will believe the vote's already over. So could you fix the link so it goes to the new nomination? I asked someone else to fix it too, but whoever gets there first I hope you fix the link! Thanks! Miley Spears 02:16, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
