Rape

Two months and no one has "raped this virgin talk page"! How far we have fallen! Pillaging is down as well Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif23:36 22-Mar-20

Avronyx is such a n00b

Uhm hey, sorry for being such a n00b, but how can I can delete pages that are inside my userspace? Thanks. ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎‎AVRONYX‏‏‎ ‎‎‎ TALK | 20:07, 14 April 2020 (UTC)

You list 'em on QVFD and we do it! Please follow the rules there. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif20:10 14-Apr-20

Plagiarism

Heya Spike, since some articles aren't in this Uncyclopedia, would it be ok if I took some parts from the other sites (such as the Spanish or Portuguese versions) and translated them? Ps. what is the difference between the English .CO and .CA Uncyclopedias? Thank you. ‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎‎AVRONYX‏‏‎ ‎‎‎ TALK | 14:16, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

The license that covers submissions to Uncyclopedias makes the information freely available with acknowledgement of the editors. It is probably sufficient to include the {{Spork}} template to acknowledge where you got it. We revel in stolen photos (see HTBFANJS) but not stolen humor, as in a photo that makes it seem you are the funny guy when the truth is that someone else is the funny guy.
See Uncyclopedia:Requested articles for additional ideas on what to write.
The two English-language Uncyclopedias split apart in 2013. See my user page for my interpretation of events. These two sites don't share material except with the consent of the editors.
Literal copypasting from The Onion, as we saw today, is just wrong. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:42 30-Apr-20

Sockpuppetry and explicit images

Hi Spike, hope you're doing well. I sent you a time sensitive email two hours ago and have yet to receive a reply, so I'd just like to make sure you are aware of it. All the best, Zombiebaron (talk) 02:27, 28 April 2020 (UTC)


Hello Spike, I hope you are doing well. My name is Y, and I am an administrator at en.uncyclopedia.co. Please see this diff as confirmation of my identity. I am writing to make sure you are aware of the email that was sent to you by Zombiebaron, as it is time-sensitive and will require collaboration between our two wikis. It relates to the numerous sockpuppets of "The king of laughter" that you banned yesterday, whom we believe to be a troll banned by both us and Wikipedia numerous times for sockpuppeting as well as sending sexually explicit images to minors. Please reply to us as soon as you can. Thank you, Y (talk) 14:34, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Additionally, we would like to point you to this sockpuppet investigation conducted by Wikipedia, wherein they confirmed that multiple users with similar usernames as the "King of Laughter" sockpuppets were all one sockmaster. We believe that two of these sockpuppets are still operating on your wiki, specifically User:Sircaustix and User:Susborne. It might be helpful to keep track of that sockpuppet investigation, which is still developing, to ensure that further sockpuppets are not causing trouble on this wiki. Y (talk) 14:47, 28 April 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for your interest. I have permabanned such of yesterday's registrants whose IPs and clock time are at least so close as to be violating Social Distancing. I don't see commonality with Sircaustix except for a common edit of 1 article. He is doing actual (if mediocre) editing. I don't care what dirt on our users has circulated on Wikipedia. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif16:45 28-Apr-20
Noted. Thank you Y Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 17:11, 28 April 2020 (UTC)
For the record, new user "Supergeeeky1" dabbled in an sexually explicit image, which I regard as more narcissism than pedophilia. Romartus permabanned him, I did RollbackAll, and we both deleted the same image file; that must be a bug. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:41 29-Apr-20
Thanks for the reply, always great to hear from you SPIKE. As you never replied to my email, I will take your reply here as that reply. However, I think you may have misunderstood my email, as it wasn't so much about sockpuppetry as it was about collaborating on the Wikipedia article about our projects so that sockpuppets could no longer use it as a target for amateur trolling. This is an ongoing matter currently on en.wp with multiple confirmed sockpuppet accounts expounding the virtues of uncyclopedia.ca, and as I stated in my email I think the best way to resolve it would be for our communities to come to an agreement. Zombiebaron (talk) 05:23, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
To keep this private, please send email outlining proposals as regards wikipedia entry. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 22:36, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
I've already stated my proposal on this page: "as I stated in my email I think the best way to resolve it would be for our communities to come to an agreement." Zombiebaron (talk) 23:52, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Romartus, I know of no one on this website who is touting its benefits on Wikipedia, least of all using sockpuppets. Where I left the Wikipedia article was adding a thumbnail summary of the 2013 division, the URL of both websites, and an endorsement of neither; this by agreement with an Admin. If it has been vandalised, revert the vandalism. I am not interested in reading an email proposal on third-party edits to Wikipedia. The other website's stated position is that it is us, and we are inactive. It has used false flags and has manipulated youngsters to be its proxies. One credible interpretation of this episode is that it stage-managed the vandalism to enable itself to ride to the rescue. Our last agreement enabled the Fork to achieve its nine-year goal of snuffing us out by mere inaction, which is exactly what resulted. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:07 30-Apr-20
Thank you for this SPIKE. Once again I have the feeling you misunderstood the content of my email, I guess it may be my fault. I was not asking for "third-party edits to Wikipedia", I was asking for the above public assurance that your project is not seeking to endorse itself on Wikipedia. Can you please provide some proof of the accusations you've made against the uncyclopdeia.co community? I don't know anything about these claims you are making, but if they are true we will of course act accordingly. We have only acted in good faith and your repeated ignoring of me during this event does not appear to be motivated by good faith. Zombiebaron (talk) 02:28, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
What does 'your project' mean? This project is Uncyclopedia as was on Wikia/Fandom until 2019 and now independently hosted. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 18:02, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
I just meant "this project", sorry if that was confusing. Zombiebaron (talk) 19:26, 1 May 2020 (UTC)
Ok. Clarification accepted. Thanks. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:11, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Fox News

Check out this article on Forbes. I smell an UnNews. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 02:50, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Then for Chrissakes, write one! If it is more than vague conversations with random people, I will promptly feature it. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:12 30-Apr-20
The last one I wrote that was "vague conversations with random people" was trying to take the same approach as the Onion does with its "random person on the street" style. Most of the news on the "local" section and especially the "opinion" section on the Onion are basically interviews with random people. No, I am not as talented as the Onion writers. Is there anyone on this site that is? If so...they could make more money writing for the Onion. Here's to the "feral hissing" part of how "coronavirus will change human relationships". Yup, an onion article. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 23:41, 1 May 2020 (UTC)

Wikipedia sockpuppetry

One of the trolls from Uncyclopedia.co who created a ton of accounts to upload pornographic images has opened a sockpuppetry investigation against you at Wikipedia. They neglected to tell you but here is the link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/PKHilliam#29_April_2020

You may wish to weigh in.201.241.194.83 19:53, 2 May 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, I have weighed in, though a reviewer commented underneath that I am unrelated to the investigation. The complainant did not even tell me on Wikipedia; that's against protocol. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:37 2-May-20

Indecent image sockpuppets

I know who the sockpuppets are. It is Supergeeky1 and Kev from Uncyclopedia fork. They are very bad people and I think you should push for their admin flag removal on the fork. They are also the Wikipedia sockpuppets above.Nana Astar Deviluke (talk) 20:59, 9 May 2020 (UTC)

Maurice

Thanks for writing up on Emperor Maurice. I will look for a few more images to illustrate it. I would like to write about Phocas next. Also some UnNews ideas too. Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 10:22, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. Yes, Phocas is the next man up! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif12:14 27-May-20

Editnotice template

Because Wikipedia has editnotice messages (per wp:Template:Editnotice), should we add it in Uncyclopedia? Christian (via whytheonlyone · chat · email) 01:10, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

We have an Editnotice when creating new pages, and there is one when opening a new article at UnNews. I have been here, off-and-on, for over a decade, and it will be a hard sell to prove that we need additional structure. While I welcome your template expertise, it's time to show that you arrived at a comedy website to showcase your sense of humor, or to let us help you develop one! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:22 12-Jun-20
Spike I am talking about Editnotices that show up in pages while editing it, including user: and user talk: pages. Christian (via whytheonlyone · chat · email) 01:35, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Whytheonlyone: What will that do, and how will that benefit us? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif01:40 12-Jun-20
When some user is trying to edit another user page of another user, the editnotice will say custom sayings, with some saying that they should not be editing this user page. Example should be your user page, while I will edit it in desktop; the editnotice says that I should not be editing your user page, and I follow that rule. Christian (via whytheonlyone · chat · email) 01:46, 12 June 2020 (UTC)
Should not apply to user talk pages, as users do like to talk to other users, and this is how to do it! I agree, users should not edit one another's user pages, but one exception is when they have nominated someone for a prize; we have templates to be stuck on their user pages to advise third parties to vote for (or against!) them. My more global concern persists: Why do you work on improving our structure and not get started writing funny stuff? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif02:13 12-Jun-20

Request for rollback rights

Hello Spike. I am requesting you to assign me rollback rights because:

  • I have been here for more than a month.
  • I determined on what and what's not vandalism (I used undo!).
  • I would like to help on reverting vandalism in this wiki.

Thanks. whytheonlyone 💬 🤠 00:10, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Well, the last time you did so, it was on the basis of Anon not writing an Edit Summary, so I don't think you have determined what is and what isn't. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif00:51 1-Jul-20
So I guess we'll have to wait for sometime before the rights arrive for me. whytheonlyone💬🤠 02:11, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Yes; also, your patrol edit yesterday was ill-advised too; the section you changed was properly "Notes" not "References". Anon fixed it, and you reverted him! Might I suggest you write funny stuff? Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif09:41 1-Jul-20

Sorry on my talk page

My intentions were trying to add Wiki stuff until you said “I will permanently block you from the site”. And I removed the infobox template from my userpage. I guess I can’t help myself... whytheonlyone💬🤠 21:54, 27 July 2020 (UTC)

Southern United States definition weirdness

What are your thoughts on the Census Bureau including Maryland, Delaware, and Washington, D.C. in their definition of the South? Most other "big name" sources tend to go along with their definition, yet Average Joes seem to think it's preposterous, believing that MD, DE, and DC should be put in the Northeast.--HolUp (talk) 07:05, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

They're definitely not "Northeast," which is New England and maybe New York. Even NJ is not "Northeast." Your three are all below the Mason-Dixon Line. MD and DE were slave-holding states, were invited to join the Confederacy, but were occupied by federal troops. DC of course was not Confederate. I'd call all three "Mid-Atlantic." The Census Bureau is a political agency, and the current wisdom within our bureaucracy is that Negro slavery explains everything about the U.S. They may have categorized on the basis of slave vs. free.
Regarding Uncyclopedia, what the Census Bureau says is irrelevant. You can follow it, ignore it, or make the three jurisdictions a special case, as long as the result is funny. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif12:22 5-Oct-20
If possible, could you hack up the deleted page The North and put it in my userspace? I want to see if there was any salvageable material in there, to add to my new Northeast United States article.--HolUp (talk) 06:45, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
Can't; I can see no page history at all. Deleted in 2005. Llwy may be able to diagnose this, or it may exist on the mirror site. But I'd say write your own. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif10:12 13-Oct-20
