Hello![edit]

Can you create a finnish (suomi) version of this website? The url would be fi.illogicopedia.org and the name would Epälogiikkapedia. -- 83.245.242.0 16:38, 14 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)

Hello to you. Although I am an admin, I know very little about anything, but especially anything about the answer to your question. I will relay the question to Demigoddess Athyria, who is a Wikian. I personally would love yet another language for Illogicopedia, in order to spread the illogic to more of the world. I have taken up the discussion here, so please go there to discuss. Also, please register as a user here so we can more easily contact you. Thanks. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 23:10, 14 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)
This is my new account. You can now contact me. -- RTXD (talk) 18:24, 17 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)

Thanks[edit]

Thank... wait I don't know who fixed it but the main page is fixed. Thanks! Iamawesome  T | C | U  04:42, 20 Arply 2015 (UTC)

Sometimes, it takes a monkey, and a hard monkey is good to find. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 23:37, 14 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)
Monkeys? XY007talkcontributions 07:39, 15 Jumbly 2015 (UTC)
Yup, monkeys They used to use gibbons for the occasional gibbous moon, until some were-gibbons got mixed up in shipping in 1988. Several technicians and Illogicopedia users were mauled during the ensuing melee on the loading dock, but security managed to round up all 7 were-apes without further incident. They were stored in Schrodinger's box until spaces could be found in Skinner boxes. The decision to use monkeys was due to the fact that they have tails, unlike apes. Even were-monkeys are more easily caught since the tails make excellent handles. Despite water-boarding, the were-apes remained uncooperative.

Wat and General[edit]

If you had recently been thinking "wat are these newbs doing makingz stuffs about this bro called bawb teh shtonegui" or something similar, Bob the Stoneguy is a angel statue who will come for you at 12:30 at night, although he isn't to careful. One sign of him is a freaking burst of giant Metallica music into your room, and he'll usually be holding a radio. This guy has this epic Pokerface on him.

What to Do[edit]

So, if you tend to sleep a lot and enjoy your dreams, it'll be hard not to say something like "WAT R U DOING IN MY ROOM CAN YOU READ ITS TWELVE THIRTY AND I'M NOT AT A CONCERT WAT IS THIS "BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH" PLAYING????" This mistake has lead to many deaths. Say: "Hai Bab" Then start dancing to his Metallica music. He'll leave

Questions You May Have[edit]

Q: Why does this make no sense? A: It's illogicopedia. No moar questions

Actually, no. What we're wondering is, "wat r deez noobz doing goin to ilogicopedia and not making an account with them." 2+2=5 SPEAK TO ME, ILLOGIAN! Past accounts of sodomy RAVENOUS AND RUTHLESS CAPITALISM The greatest article in the history of Illogia! 00:07, 4 Novelniver 2015 (UTC)

Uhhh... This is awkward.[edit]

Yep

Alot of you know about the main page. But, There was a goof made by a Illogicopedian. That error comes from a forum box that says "Talk about stuff and things". and that error says "</forum>namespace=Forumcategory=Allforumtopicsshownamespace=falseaddlasteditor=truehistorylink=truecount=12<forum\>[1]" So, that's why you need to fix it! Look at the image and fix the main page! DO IT PLEASE! --(BKYE) Sophia, The Resident of Uncyclopedia Delty (babble)

Featured in 2015[edit]

Can some admin add the Featured template to the main page? (AMB) (XAR) (BKYE) Sophia, The Resident Uncyclopedia Deity (talk) 20:52, 13 Arche 2016 (UTC)

lol[edit]

Oh, I suppose you think you're pretty clever, huh? Thought you would find something you weren't supposed to see yet? Well, it's not just Wackypedia. It's just Illogicopedia. Nothing since last time when some guy which is me edited Illogicopedia of the Month for the sake of it. Let's just emerge from the middle of nowhere and relax. :) --(AMB) (XAR) (BKYE) Sophia, The Resident Uncyclopedia Deity (talk) 20:52, 13 Arche 2016 (UTC)

Ohio Weather[edit]

Horrible

"Ohio weather is horrible, I'm leaving. Bye."

-Me

Ohio weather is just another one of life's greatest mysteries, like, why is toilet paper white? Or, why are beavers so evil? I have no clue. It's just sunny one day and snowing the next. In summer.

Not XY007 :O[edit]

The main page is not featured for this year anymore, just remove the feature template. :) --(AMB) (XAR) (BKYE) Sophia, The Resident Uncyclopedia Deity (talk) 18:20, 18 Aym 2016 (UTC)

Why is the front page all wonky looking?[edit]

It used to be kind of a disorganized mess with some stuff that almost fit together and was just a little truncated on the right where the alignment was off a bit, along with pictures of socks or something, and now suddenly it looks all different with a bunch of text and no socks.
What happened? Snarglefoop (talk) 04:27, 22 Jeremy 2017 (UTC)

  • The front page became

  • Looks like it got broken. No biggie, stuff gets broken all the time. I'm surrounded by broken stuff. Many of us are. Are you surrounded by broken stuff, too? Could have been a vandal. Could have been a mysterious computer glitch. Could have been a Russian hacker, attempting to break in and botching the job. Somebody should go fix it, I suppose.

  • Oh look, it's back! It fixed itself, like that weird pipe in Brazil! Now we can all relax and go back to eating peanuts and waiting for the next political disaster. (I wish my car would fix itself like that.) Snarglefoop (talk) 23:20, 8 Arche 2017 (UTC)
  • Whay do you mean, it fixed itself? The main page looks completely blank to me. P00psicle (talk) 18:45, 7 Aym 2017 (UTC)
What car? The car works fine.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 00:28, 9 Arche 2017 (UTC)
  • In an amazing example of real life synchronicity, the car has been repaired a very large number of times, but it has also broken exactly the same number of times. If the synchronicity were to fail, and by chance the number of times it was repaired were to no longer match the number of times it had broken down, there would be a problem. On the other hand if it would acquire Main Page Power (or should we call it Main Page Brazil Pipe Power) and fix itself whenever it broke down, that particular looming danger would be eliminated (or at least moderated).

I dunno what to do about it, mamma! I replaced all my coding knowledge with scores from the teletext videprinter. Only thing I could say is that maybe something in the individual templates is causing the page to stretch beyond 100%.

If you want to see your sandalism again, bring 500,000 somalian pesos in small unmarked bills[edit]

OK so I failed completely to get a handle on why the main page is totally missing unless you're logged in.

And I tracked down the missing sandalism to the Vandalism template, which acts weird when it's stuck in a table with somebody else (or even itself). I didn't figure out what's wrong with the template -- replacing most of its code with stuff that made no reference to the width of the surrounding page didn't make a difference. If it's on the first row of a two-row table, its first cell decides it wants to be as wide as the entire second row, and sandalism goes off to nowhere-land.

HOWEVER I did find a workaround. It doesn't look quite right (sandalism's header and footer don't float properly) and, worse, it requires editing the main page, but it gets us into the ballpark again. Somebody with Main Page Power might want to bip it in there, since even if it's not perfect, it's a heckuva lot better than the messed up look we're currently sporting.

Where the main page says this:

{|width="100%" class="userinput1"
|{{Vandalpedia}}
|-
|{{Forumtemplate}}
|}

change it to this:

{|width="100%" class="userinput1"
|{{Vandalpedia}}
|}

{|width="100%" class="userinput1"
|{{Forumtemplate}}
|}

(yeah, exactly, just split the table.)

I added a slash to the references tag so it wasn't hiding everything underneath it. Sorry about the unsigneds -- had to replace the tildes or they'd all turn into my signature. Moral of the story: close your tags.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 19:55, 4 Farbleum 2018 (UTC)
  • Whoopsie! Thanks. I had wondered where it all went. Snarglefoop (talk) 20:33, 4 Farbleum 2018 (UTC)

If the main page is invisible when you're not logged in[edit]

Athyria explained this. The page is cached (somewhere) and the cache is only refreshed when the page changes. So, if the cache gets a broken version stuck in it, the broken version will be seen instead of the "right" page.

For reasons which are too high for my limited understanding, this only affects users who are not logged in. So, when the hoipoloi get locked out of Illogicopedia by this gremlin, the fix is simple:

Edit the main page.  (And save the edit.) 

The change doesn't matter -- add a blank or something -- anything to trigger the stupid robot who caches it to pick up a fresh copy. Snarglefoop (talk) 20:41, 4 Farbleum 2018 (UTC)

And of course only admins can edit it.  Flyingcat (meow?)fr: 22:45, 4 Farbleum 2018 (UTC)

Random cruft in Sandalism[edit]

So after spending lots of time getting nothing done I'm supposed to be getting done I did at least find the culprits for Sandalism having its width wonky and having no link to edit the template at the bottom. There is a general rule here:

Do not include fancy tables, nor templates that expand into tables containing all active user names, nor other wonky things in the Vandalism template.

And -- even more important -- do not leave your divs unclosed!! Snarglefoop (talk) 23:02, 26 Arply 2018 (UTC)

Broken 'featured image' list display[edit]

In the upper right of the main page, where the featured image list should go, we're showing an error message from DPL.

The reason is DPL 3 is apparently too stupid to ignore whitespace.

If someone would go in and just undent the 'dpl' code block to the left margin it'll get rid of that error message.

I'm going to include a couple screen shots because I need to show this with whitespace preserved, and I can't get the wiki code to do that.

Change this:

to this:

Screenshot-2018-04-28-2.png


I realize this sounds cretinous and you probably can't believe it, but in a test copy of the main page it got rid of the stupid "no parameter option supplied for ' '" message -- and it makes sense. The error message is babbling about a parameter named blank, f'gosh sakes. Snarglefoop (talk) 23:24, 28 Arply 2018 (UTC)
