At Uncyclopedia, writing articles is not a requirement, but it certainly is a fun and easy way to express your creativity. To write an article, it's recommended that you start it in your userspace (for example, User:Ratbert/Example) so you can edit it at your leisure. If you decide to create it in the cold world of mainspace, make sure it is in accordance with the policies laid out above, and if you're not done put the "Work-In-Progress" template - {{construction}} - onto it as well.

If you haven't visited the site in a long while (i.e. since 2015) and are returning under a new name, your old username may have been renamed to Un-youroldusername. You can contact a bureaucrat to have your name changed. The "Uncyclopedia" skin no longer exists, but since we are no longer on Wikia, we now use the Wikipedia-like Vector skin. There are other choices as well, which you can read about at Skin Choice.

If you need help, feel free to ask me on my talk page, ask at the community forum or ask an administrator on their talk page. Additionally, our Adopt-a-Noob program can bring experienced editors straight to you. Simply leave a message on an adopter's talk page to join. I hope you enjoy editing here and being an Uncyclopedian!  Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:05 12-Jun-19

Your former life?[edit]

Hello and welcome! Are you the same guy who was Ratbert at uncyclopedia.wikia.com? If so, your stuff is at User:Un-Ratbert. In 2015, Wikia unified its wikis, found there was another Ratbert elsewhere with a different email address, and changed your username here. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:05 12-Jun-19

Puritan[edit]

Thank you for dropping a photo in here. I changed the caption (which essentially said, This is a photo) and rearranged the Intro a little. Now, this article has been on the site for 13 years, and is still essentially a collection of caricatures of Americans by someone who didn't know an awful lot about us. Are you inclined to jump in further? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:32 5-Jul-19
