Constantine III and Heraklonas again[edit]

Hey, Monothelitism is a red-link! and I can't remember the name of that page that developed it. Also making the usual request for photos, shouldn't be hard to do better than I did. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:55 9-Jun-20

It's on my next heresy to-do list. Yes, I will look for some images to illustrate the latest imperial article. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:00, 10 June 2020 (UTC)

Got it, it's Monophysitism, and for now, I piped it to point there. I await your illustrations! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:40 10-Jun-20

Constans II[edit]

I believe I posted this to your talk page on some 1-Jun in the past. (Archive25)

Your bucket photo doesn't ring true! Needs a beard! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:44 11-Jun-20

Also, my initial Pogo Possum illustration is sort of lame. It goes with the text, but that isn't much of a joke either. The coin could be moved up in its place, or you could provide one more for the Intro. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:00 11-Jun-20

Yeah, I know the man lacks a beard. Perhaps a bit of photoshopping may improve that. I admit, I had no idea who Pogo Possum was. Otherwise the article is finished. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:28, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

Ooh, photoshopping! But Pogo is famous! (At least with my father's generation...) Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:39 12-Jun-20

By the way, Pogo (actually, creator Walt Kelly) told the joke I reuse, a century later, in UnNews Audio, referring to "twenty-oh sixteen" and so on. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:46 12-Jun-20


Placement of the new illustration is inelegant, and "Spoiler!" is an admission it is inelegant. Perhaps build out Section 4 so that there is as much text as photos, as the other two are good too. Perhaps crop the new one to focus on "the action"? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif18:29 14-Jun-20

Got two images essentially telling the same joke. I will also crop it as suggested. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:34, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

B-52s cont[edit]

Are you ready to return to our collab here? Or are you still busy with the emperor articles? No rush, just making sure.--HolUp (talk) 22:51, 14 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes still interested in a collab. Perhaps the B-52s were really pilots on the quiet. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:57, 15 June 2020 (UTC)

Constantine IV[edit]

Would you like a copy-edit? or are you annoyed at me gobbling up big pieces of your project? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif17:55 17-Jun-20

No, that's fine. I want to fill in the religious gaps now with the two missing councils and what Monothelitism was. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:01, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Do we need a Heresies navigation-template, then? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif02:16 18-Jun-20

Christian Heresies[edit]

As this is on its way to becoming a Romartus boxed set, how about a navigation template? I'll code it if you submit a snappy illustration! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:05 18-Jun-20

The councils appear on the Christianity Template (see earlier ones). Perhaps they need their own. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:09, 19 June 2020 (UTC)

Ah, {{Unchristianity}}. It's jam-packed, but I don't know if splitting it into two would make it unnecessarily hard to find things. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:32 19-Jun-20

Spandex[edit]

User:Methanol has wrought his "magic" here, last edited by you (five years ago). He has written a new lede and several other crufty sections, but you might find some way to integrate them into what was there before. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:57 21-Jun-20


Is his new illustration at Acetone vanity/cyberbullying, or am I missing something? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif12:42 26-Jun-20

Don't know. Doesn't seem to relate to the article either. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:59, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

Elon Musk[edit]

This article, edited by Anon yesterday, has too little text or too many pix, courtesy of you. I discarded the photo of his ex-wife, as it added no humor and she is barely mentioned in the text. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:43 29-Jun-20

Oh, perhaps I should add more to this and about his wife too. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:51, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

OK, I've restored the voluptuous photo, go wild. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:30 30-Jun-20

Ben Phillips‎‎[edit]

Need a second opinion here too. This has been attracting crufty edits almost nightly from an Anon. I would have deleted it, but Nigel says on its talk page that Phillips is an established YouTuber. However, our usual guidance on vloggers is that "articles tend to be indistinguishable from adverts." This article is a fanboy rant that goes on for too long. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif17:23 29-Jun-20

I would revert recent edits, lock it and leave it. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:50, 29 June 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, have done. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:30 30-Jun-20

UnNews:Rapper Kanye runs for President[edit]

Sorry to savage your UnNews, including renaming it. Many of the topics you touched in passing called out for local color, notably Kanye "splitting the black vote" in view of Biden purporting to define who is black. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:41 7-Jul-20

You seemed to have run far with this one! I have in mind to start a new article on William Barr as Barney 'Constitutional' Rubble.Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 00:04, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

You already have an UnNews in on him! whereas I know very little about him; dour, not rolled by careerists as Jeff Sessions famously was, very serious about getting to the bottom of the FBI going rogue and the streets going aflame, the former with his US Attorney for Connecticut John "Bull" Durham, recently scolded by Sen. Grassley to please finish your two-year investigation timely enough for us to use it to flog our election opponents. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:25 8-Jul-20

User:Pashute[edit]

Arrived here on a bus for ED. Isn't taking advice from me. Look in if you care to. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:01 13-Jul-20

I saw the Disney World article by Pashute. I go through that and perhaps add an image anyway. Otherwise...erm..people are people. It's a matter of Do Your Own Thing! Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:10, 13 July 2020 (UTC)

Irene[edit]

Broke another one off and did it. I got the illustrations from Wikipedia; the coins illustrate the various phases of her love/hate relationship with her son and belong where they are. Perhaps you can find a photo from cinema for the Intro. 14:33 19-Jul-20 Also, you'll see Wikipedia confused me as to whether the confab she convened was the Second Council of Nicaea or the Seventh Ecumenical Council, or maybe they're the same thing. Please go in and clarify! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:57 19-Jul-20

Re-councils. Yes, it was both the Second Nicaea and Seventh Ecumenical. A bit like boxing titles. I will look for another Irene pic. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:05, 19 July 2020 (UTC)

That was just what was needed! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif02:55 20-Jul-20

Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace[edit]

I reverted your removal of this article's Infobox. Whytheonlyone had replaced this Template with a Module that didn't work. See Llwy's talk page; his work on the site has at least created a body of code we don't know how to maintain, and now we see some of the code is broken. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:19 27-Jul-20

Ok. I see. I was going to change over the front page with the article. See if there is a fix on the info box? Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:56, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Yes, Module:Infobox is gone, Template:Infobox is restored, and the nominated article now has an Infobox and not just an error message. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:05 27-Jul-20

Anthony Fauci[edit]

Thanks for this! I am in with a light copy-edit. Separately, though, I don't think Immanuel will be remembered a week from now. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif03:20 29-Jul-20

Er...you're right about Immanuel for now. Seems to have vanished as quickly as she arrived. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:52, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

Leo the Iconoclast[edit]

I took some hacks at this, but I can't even parse the second paragraph of the Intro. Please clarify. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:33 17-Aug-20

I had another go at that. I was trying to make the true historical point that Leo's adoption of the iconoclasm (and also by his son Constantine V) created a new schism in the Christian church. By the time it had been resolved, the Papacy held the former central Italian territories of the Byzantines in its own right, though under the protection of Charlemagne and his successors. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:55, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

UotY 2019[edit]

Can I haz a third vote and a declaration of winner-by-acclamation for Llwy? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:32 2-Sep-20

Vulgarism[edit]

You have an abandoned maintenance tag here. Keep going or (re-)userspace? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif09:29 5-Sep-20

Thanks for reminding me. Need to get that finished, along with the Bannon article. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:20, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
I was on the edge of banning Penis Lover69 before you did. But maybe he fancied contributing to the Vulgarism?! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:04 7-Sep-20
I still follow the policy of banning unacceptable user names and that includes those with swirling swastikas too. I finished Vulgarism but will re-visit it to tighten it up more. I only finished as I liked the initial opening paragraphs. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 13:01, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Uncyclopedia:Maintenance/Expand[edit]

My El Producto is finally a little more than {{Stub}}, TeX to the rescue. But I am stuck on the other two. Kidnapping is really childish, but it's better than a red-link. PythonAnywhere is not much better but Carlb did some remediation. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:03 7-Sep-20

I will have a go at improving Kidnapping as it currently has some lame stuff as regards Obama/Bush which now seems prehistoric as regards the recent crazy stuff. The other two, I have no insight or knowledge to improve them textually. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:56, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

But note that if you add the recent crazy stuff, as is your wont (Immanuel?), it will shortly seem prehistoric too! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif13:16 8-Sep-20

Immanuel did disappear which was your prediction. Perhaps that was a box of frogs too far and besides, she didn't get a job in the administration (at this time of writing). Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 15:05, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

On that topic, I wished Corey Lewandowski had been on my primary ballot today in New Hampshire. But he has decided he can "best help the President"...by being utterly invisible between now and November? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif18:02 8-Sep-20

Seems quite simple. If Trump is re-elected, the Republicans can say they won with a winner. If Trump loses it will be Donald Who? Never heard of him. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:21, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Romulus Augustulus[edit]

I tightened up the language somewhat and took it in a couple new directions, from roman-emperors.org. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif03:58 11-Sep-20

Thanks! Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 07:51, 11 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't see the humor in the second initial quotation, seems like bickering quotations to me. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif16:19 12-Sep-20

Petticoating[edit]

This is an Anon playground. Is this a real thing? Do you see a comedy strategy, or any Redeeming Value? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif22:35 11-Sep-20

I would need to find out more about this. The article seems to be 'ready formed' from some source. It's compotently done so we can wait if more of this particular 'universe' appears from anons. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:55, 12 September 2020 (UTC)

OK, then I'll let it be. Do you have a Patrol All button? Mine hasn't worked since we arrived here. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif16:05 12-Sep-20

Schism[edit]

HolUp and I have savaged this piece. Mine was mostly a copy-edit, though I rewrote Why schisms happen, initially wanting only to eliminate the possibly/probably, which didn't sound encyclopedic, then later realizing there was a theory to hold it together. One thing is missing, a segue near the end to romantic schisms (schisms based on jizm). Conclusion is a reprise of the Why section and needs to be merged or eliminated; its photo seems to belong in the previous section. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:18 1-Oct-20

Jizm!? As in semen?? Ha! Take your points. See what I can do. I guess I need to write an UnNews as regards recent Biden-Trump debate (or as it a rant-a-thon from the red corner?). Not yet seeing the comedic angle on that one yet, besides repeating all the regular issues. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 08:03, 1 October 2020 (UTC)

I surely saw it as a rant-a-thon. It's hardly possible to award debate points on the issues, as none were developed in detail, and neither candidate said what he intended to do going forward. All we can do is debate who is most helped by it being a rant-a-thon. The moderator was the most insistent, and the biggest loser. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif09:45 1-Oct-20

UnNews:Trump infected, Biden asleep[edit]

Retitled and copy-edited. I joined you for a side-by-side on the Front Page. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif02:55 5-Oct-20

File:MikePenceFly01.jpg[edit]

Jeezus! If you must document US politics from abroad, don't keep fixating on National Enquirer stuff that will be forgotten in a week! In fact, I claim (on UnNews) that no one will remember the losing VP candidate at all!

PS--It must be Brylcreem.

I just heard someone say that Kamala debated a cardboard cutout of Leslie Nielsen (and lost). Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:25 9-Oct-20

That fly will not be forgotten! :) Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 23:45, 9 October 2020 (UTC)

Not because Biden sells $5 swatters, surely Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:57 9-Oct-20

Iconoclasm[edit]

In today's installment, is CODA supposed to be an acronym? Or just the musical notation? All-caps is baffling. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:01 19-Oct-20

PS--I did something with CODA. As for "questionable imagery," I wanted to segue to Hunter Biden's laptop, but that will probably be as cryptic in a month as...Immanuel is now. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif10:38 19-Oct-20

Don't think I added a CODA as such. I want to wrap up Iconoclasm as a historical episode to a more general point about the destruction of imagery by latter Christians (i.e. in the Reformation. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:23, 20 October 2020 (UTC)

UnNews:Pope Francis decides he isn't a Catholic after all[edit]

I like the directions you take this in, but the lede is too factual! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif10:46 23-Oct-20

That's fine, I don't mind a re-edit. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:51, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Done and featured. It could accommodate additional directions, such as other points of doctrine that might be optional now. The communion host, unless you prefer jelly beans? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:24 23-Oct-20

Kamala Harris[edit]

Very well, though I got several chuckles out of it being a red-link. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif16:24 10-Oct-20

It's been 'Spiked'! Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:04, 10 October 2020 (UTC)

Now, if you dislike red-links, Amy Coney Barrett is your next chance to strike a blow against Papism. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif20:45 10-Oct-20

Go halvsies in the Hall of Shame on this? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:23 23-Oct-20

Ok, no prob. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:01, 23 October 2020 (UTC)

Globo[edit]

I userspaced this as it wasn't ready for mainspace, for the reasons I gave at User talk:Tomy Noku, which remain true. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:20 25-Oct-20

I wanted to encourage the writer. The current article is list heavy but it's not bad for a first effort here. It does need a bit more information for non-Brazilians to understand some of the points but you get the overall point. Globo is essentially crap. :) Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 09:49, 26 October 2020 (UTC)

But does it have a Page 3?! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif10:48 26-Oct-20

Perhaps when the writer returns we can ask him. Also, now that we're outside Wikia/Fandoomed etc, boobs are fine. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:16, 26 October 2020 (UTC)
