Wikia vows to close Uncyclopedia[edit]

Admin[edit]

On the Fork, they're nominating all active admins and bureaucrats here for the same position there. If you sign up there, you can get nominated! I know there was a fake Spike, so you'll have to use a different name. Admin DAP Dame Pleb Com. <font="Times New Roman">Miley <font="Times New Roman">Spears (talk) 20:10, March 1, 2019 (UTC)

The fake Spike was SPIKE in all caps. The name "Spike" is still available. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 01:19 2 March 2019

You may have to revote[edit]

Voting options have changed on Forum:Hosting options for Uncyclopedia (wikia). Because the set up of the vote has been changed, some people, including possibly you, need to know, You may have to recast your vote for it to count. Voting will end on Saturday, 23 March 2019 (check vote for time zone; currently it's set for Hawaii).

Uncyclopedia rises from the ashes, here[edit]

Uncyclopedia:Active Admins[edit]

You might re-list yourself here. If you prefer not to be bothered by users at this time, you could perhaps enter your username without making it a link. --Nigel Scribbler sig2.png (talk) 21:10, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I shall re-list myself. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:29 17-May-19

thumb around[edit]

This needs to be on Guiness Book of Word Records, Nigel should do his homework more before taking a dig about College of DuPage. They're in public turmoil right now.

Baptists saw an injoke treatment and Southern Baptists also saw a few touches played up. The article White People you might be asking where she got the item from for this too as we have a unique idea coming and I am planning to bring some family on for the presentation of this. The location we're cutting her loose on is Mummy but we need clearance to upload photos.--Factfinder (talk) 01:12, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Did some work on Pensacola; that became a pet project and the elements show up in the images and screen caps. Do your research on Crab Invasion of Florida and it got 18,500,000 views look you want to ban me because I was helping someone do research on a piece that will be published from that month. Some articles need to be expanded in recent events, Florida is one of those that commands a 4000 word article at least with the recent events with the crabs. Go look on Fox News 32 and the video well will be sent to Reddit.com.

So show that to some of the other admins and tell me Florida deserves to be expanded and done right, it doesn't need the treatment that White People or Fan Fiction both have but close enough. Pensacola saw 3000 words total as an expansion because of the recent events with Andrew Tuck. This is Evolution starting at him too. I was trying to get the article about Tuck to you but they wouldn't allow the link. I apologize for the external link on this post because Professor Kara Cooney of UCLA is one of the sources on this one. --Factfinder (talk) 15:22, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

No, I want to ban you because no one can get it through your thick head that this is a humor website and not a place for you to flog your research. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif15:29 21-Aug-19

The funny appears when it's true. Think about that one, when it's too outlandish to make up do you want to lie to people when you make them laugh? --Factfinder (talk) 15:45, 21 August 2019 (UTC)

Spambots[edit]

I created (repurposed) Special:AbuseFilter/24 to stop spambots based on the common pattern of using double <br> tags instead of normal line breaks. SherlynHayner27 had already run into it before you made the block, so it was definitely a spambot. Based on past experience with a similar filter at Illogicopedia, this should stop most or all of the spam coming in, but blocking the accounts or IPs is good too. The filter could do so itself if you like; at the moment it's limited to "disallow". ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 20:17 23 May 2019

It should block them. I did not check the abuse log; but when a "new user" arrives and the first edit is spam that is so easily identifiable, we ought not Assume Good Faith. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif20:49 23-May-19
It does now. I also installed QuestyCaptcha to cut down on the account creation. From what I've read, this is the most effective and least annoying of the captcha variants. The questions I added aren't very inspired -- should we discuss them somewhere? On the list maybe? ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 21:13 25 May 2019
That is better than forcing all of us to clear Google to administer its IQ test just to log in. More precisely preventing the account creation is better than more precisely banning users. I don't care what the questions are provided I can answer them and a bot can't. The very poor English of the spam suggests that we have simply been added to a list of MediaWiki installations to pester every couple of hours. If some human should study our questions and program the 'bot to answer them, we can change them. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:48 25-May-19
PS--The date style you use is disfavored (at least in UN:SIG) because 1/6/2019 will mean something different here from there. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif21:56 25-May-19
You're right. I've added month names. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 22:28 25 May 2019

Desysopping[edit]

Thanks. Could you do PIGGY too? I was hoping Sannse would come over here, but she's probably not going to. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 05:18 31 May 2019

  • Sannse has had creative fun here and always knows where we went. She does not need Admin power for this, and might someday use it in another crusade against nip-slips.
  • PIGGY I have not encountered in my decade here; and I think I tried to deopp him at Wikia but somehow could not. However, the last time I acceded to a request to use Admin power to do something a user could have done herself, it became part of a dossier in a campaign to deopp me. So do it yourself. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:32 31-May-19
Haydrahlienne and PIGGY were bot accounts used by Lyrithya when she was still trying to move the spoon content to un.uncyclopedia.co. As such, their status is temporary and the task for which they were created either is completed or will not be completed now. carlb (talk) 14:51, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
Yes, both were official Lyrithya bots. Brought back to life briefly but can now be disarmed again. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 16:44, 31 May 2019 (UTC)
Say n'more, done. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif16:51 31-May-19
Great. Sorry, I would prefer not to desysop anyone myself because I'm not a bureaucrat and I'd have to directly query the database. I've considered creating some sort of "sysadmin" user group but haven't done so. ❦ Llwy-ar-lawr talkcontribs • 18:53 31 May 2019

VFH[edit]

Couldn't see how I could vote there now. What happened to that gizmo Mediawiki extension that used to work before Wikia-Fandom messed up everything? --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 11:31, 30 July 2019 (UTC)

I've been voting by just editing the nomination file. I never messed with the VFH gizmos. Llwy has been repairing gizmos from the Wikia depredations; recommend you ask her. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif11:41 30-Jul-19
PS--In fact, most of the breakage is not from Jerry-rigging at Wikia but from adoption of more modern software versions, especially New Improved DPL, and we have done it too. Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif13:16 30-Jul-19

Saladin[edit]

Thanks for the edits and additions. More or less finished the article now but further tweaks are welcome.--Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 12:55, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

It's been educational! Spıke Radiomicrophone.gif14:51 18-Sep-19
