You know what? This page looks almost just like http://meta.wikimedia.org/



Linking to Uncyclopedia and back?

How do you do it without an external link? --Roger The BUM ⌥⌘⎋ [email protected] Complaints H4x0R M3!Spare a Quarter? 06:48, 14 March 2006 (EST)

Well externally would just be Uncyclopedia's Article Internally is Uncyclopedia's Article. Mr. "Blue Link" Tompkins 20:02, 13 March 2006 (EST)
How about Uncyclopedia over to here? --Roger The BUM ⌥⌘⎋ [email protected] Complaints H4x0R M3!Spare a Quarter? 06:48, 14 March 2006 (EST)
Try [[UnMeta:Article|UnMeta's Article]] I think it'll sort itself out... maybe... Mr. "Blue Link" Tompkins 16:20, 14 March 2006 (EST)
IS it worth adding UnMeta to Uncyclopedia:Template:Sisterprojects or is this surposed to be secret?, also I'm sure I saw a rant somewhere about how this needs to be the place to drop half arsed ideas, etc. can anyone remeber where it is? --Elvis 09:33, 17 March 2006 (EST)
I think we're supposed to keep it unlinked in the Main Space at least until after April Fools day. Mr. "Blue Link" Tompkins 16:43, 17 March 2006 (EST)
Rather than moving Uncyclopedia over here, why don't we move UnMeta to Wikia, Uncyclopedia has a lot more invested over there (I mean, they have multiple languages over at Wikia already). --68.252.59.133
I think having UnMeta at Wikia is a good idea. --Nerd42eMailTalk?pediaWPediah2g2 07:56, 12 July 2006 (PDT)
Actually, you should be able to link here from Uncyclopedia-related wikia using meta: as the prefix and link to Uncyclopedia from here by using uncyclopedia: or any of the individual language codes (such as en: es: fr: pt: zh-tw: and the like). Sysops here can add any prefixes to the interwiki table at Special:Interwiki here if there are any destinations that've been missed. Sadly we don't have that luxury on Wikia, so a link like pt:cheiramento de gatinhos that works just fine here isn't going to work from en: or anything else Wikia. You might get there from en: using meta:pt:cheiramento de gatinhos but on Wikia that still doesn't provide a way to slip a brazillion links to pt: articles into the "in other languages" box. It just shows as a regular interwiki link.
wikicities:uncyclopedia:meta:pt:cheiramento de gatinhos seems to work from most MediaWiki sites, but egads, why? --Carlb 17:28, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

License

CC-NC licenses are evil. Anyway, if you're copying pages from Wikimedia's meta, this wiki would need to be GFDL. Angela 03:33, 20 March 2006 (EST)

  • When we 'copy' from WikiMeta, we take the following steps:
  1. Copy it, word for word.
  2. Modify it so "Wikipedia" says "Uncyclopedia" and vice-versa.
  3. Strip it down to it's basic concept.
  4. Reinterpret it entirely.
  5. Build it up to the skewered interpretation.
  6. Mix all the text around.
  7. Change the title to something different.
  8. If it is still similar to the WikiMeta page, we block the incompetant user who can't change pages.

At least, that's how it's supposed to work. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 10:01, 23 April 2006 (EDT)

There's also the not-so-minor detail that text can't be copied to commercial-GFDL wikis from uncyclopedia:en: as the en: articles are under a non-commercial license. If we want to bring uncyclopedia:en: content here, we need to be CC-NC-BY-SA compatible. --Carlb 17:38, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

what?

i'm confused. If theres only one uncycloepdia then why do we need a metawiki? --Nerd42 13:11, 24 April 2006 (EDT)

See here for reasons. ~ Ghelæ talkcontribs 13:28, 24 April 2006 (EDT)

This wiki is cursed!!

Whatever you do, DO NOT CLICK HERE!! --Nerd42 11:44, 8 July 2006 (PDT)

... or here. --Carlb 18:05, 13 July 2006 (PDT)

日本語版は?

日本語版はありますか?--220.108.131.220 02:55, 31 January 2007 (EST)

おそらくunmeta-wikiはすべての「アンウィキ」の代表であっても会話のほとんどは英語なのでしょうね。大きくなれば言語も広がるだろうけど、いまのところでは... 222.158.162.242 03:26, 22 March 2007 (EDT)

Hmmmmm...

Why has uncyclopedia vanished off the face of the earth? It redirects to wikia. Why? --THE 03:29, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

It was voted for deletion as Patented Nonsense, I'd suspect. I've proposed English as a new language on Requests for new languages, although Iraq and Iran will likely vote against the idea... --Carlb 03:55, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

InciMeta

Can I create a spanish UnMeta? I should need the admins permission, or not?--200.28.180.182 03:06, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

As far as I know, anyone can create anything - no guarantee that it'll get much use but no harm in trying. --Carlb 22:02, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
