Hi! Why can't we upload .ogg files? User:NCurse form hungarian Uncyclopedia...

It looks like .ogg is a valid filetype but that filesize is being limited to two megabytes per uploaded file. --Carlb 19:20, 29 July 2006 (EDT)


I´m admin of cs:Necyklopedie. I try to order Commons. If I have rights of admin even here, it ´ll be better. It will make my work easier. I want to make it more useful for people.

I aplly to allot rights of admin. People who can assure me are: User:Zylbrsztajn, User:Trnka z Necyklopedie Nazdar. --Ervinpospisil 19:01, 19 March 2007 (EDT)

apple pie[edit]


Carlb, congratulations & our gratitude for the new server and also congratulations for the appearance of the 500th article in the Oncyclopedia Neerlandica. I hereby send you the truckload of delicious Dutch apple pie I promised you. Don't eat them all at once! D. G. Neree 11:32, 24 May 2007 (UTC)


Please see work hereof honest worker. User:くぎり. Hundreds of categorization. Honest work. Need good administrator.

Shall I small problem on Wikia cs:Necyklopedie. I am bureaucrat. Need take away administrator law inactive administrators. Technically me it is not admissible. You can at it have a look? Thank you. --Ervinpospisil 22:57, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

Because you are on Wikia, you will need someone on Wikia staff to intervene if you intend to remove a privilege or issue certain flags (such as 'bot'). You cannot do this yourself there.
Adding a new sysop, however, may still be done by bureaucrats. --Carlb 16:48, 14 Dezembro 2007 (UTC)


Hello Carl, I (D. G. Neree can't get logged in with my normal password. Is it possible to get to the password or change it? It's strange because it's the only pasword i use for DGNeree 16:35, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

I've changed it and sent the new one to you as e-mail. --Carlb 16:53, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
I was wandering, caught in the wasteland of the anonymous lost souls, but you gave me back my name! ^_^ D. G. Neree 17:48, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Welcome back :) --Carlb 18:38, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Images from oncyclopedie[edit]

Oncyclopedie has a lot of pictures that aren't on Uncommons. Is there a way to transport a lot of images at once? Maybe with export/import? Is there a way to see which pictures are not on uncommons? And what happens when images are double, but have a different name? I can look for the pictures at oncy that i scanned myself, but i have no idea where the others came from mostly. D. G. Neree 20:39, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

I've copied the images list from nl:special:allpages to afbeelding so that you can see what exists here under the same names. Transferring many images at once would likely require something like the image import script that was used to import en:'s image collection to UnCommons. Using special:import would only import the descriptions, not the images themselves.
I don't have an easy way to find images where the names are different for the same photo, or detect the use of the same name for different images from one wiki to another. --Carlb 21:01, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

& here too :)[edit]




From all the editors at the Oncyclopedia Neerlandica
The left image won't show. Does it take a while for the database to manage it? D. G. Neree 19:07, 24 December 2007 (UTC) Never mind D. G. Neree 21:43, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Indeed, happy Christmas! Alzheimlich 21:48, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

dutch translations[edit]

Hello Carl, There is a Dutch Frontpage: , but the words in the boxes & buttons are in Portuguese. Is there a way to change that (I guess in mediawiki)? And also: i would like to translate some pages in Dutch. How do i go about doing that? Is the language section in different namespaces? And how is this on Uncyclomedia? Is there a babel-section there? 21:28, 9 February 2008 (UTC) D. G. Neree 11:39, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

The language for anonymous users is set in one of the MediaWiki configuration files. The possible ways to change language of the MediaWiki interface are:

At the moment, Babel: is not a separate namespace on either Commons or Meta, as Meta has relatively little "content" and Commons is mostly images. The Main Page is translated to Hoofdpagina as just another page in the main namespace.

Would it be worth creating a MediaWiki extension to be able to change automatically to ?uselang=nl on a per-page or per-namespace basis for anonymous users? --Carlb 16:57, 10 February 2008 (UTC)


Thankies from Tommy boy and Luvvy

Thank you for reverting the deletion of my Heart anim.gif. Without it my signature would just look naked. Having it up here makes it easier for me to work with multiple uncyclopedias, since I don't have to upload the heart separately everywhere. Huge thanks again. Luverly - (Contribs) (Talk) Heart anim.gif 01:23, 10 Mar

Having it here won't make it available everywhere, but should at least make it available on fi: ja: nl: pt: zh-tw: and a few others. Not sure why it was deleted. --Carlb 01:30, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

* 22:19, 9 March 2008 Ervinpospisil (Talk | contribs) deleted "User:Luvvy/sig" ‎ (content was: 'Luverly - Special:Contributions/Luvvy|<font color=...' (and the only contributor was 'Luvvy'))

* 22:17, 9 March 2008 Ervinpospisil (Talk | contribs) deleted "Image:Heart anim.gif" ‎ (bad qualit)

"bad quality"? It's a .gif made for a sig. What do you expect of a 12*13px or something roundabouts image? I guess I'll upload CruiseHeil just to prove my "quality" isn't that poor... I think there may have been an international punch line error there, or alternatively someone having a "bad grasp" of what work goes into animating that wee little heart... Ah well, I'm rambling. Have you voted for me at Uncyc already? (Girl's gotta whore as much as possible, right?) Luverly - (Contribs) (Talk) Heart anim.gif 01:39, 10 Mar

  • Just to ask a quick n00b question, aren't people's user spaces a bit more "safe" from admin edits than the main area? I'm not 100% on this, but the deletion of my sig on sight by an admin seemed a bit like overreacting... Luverly - (Contribs) (Talk) Heart anim.gif 03:54, 10 Mar

Just a bit more safe, for instance in that it should be possible to safely create a partially-finished article as a subpage of your userpage, then, when you're actually done building it, move it into main space. --Carlb 04:18, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

So as I thought. I knew more or less that it was like that, but to delete someone's sig when the user has been registered for barely an hour isn't too welcoming, as my edits didn't hurt anyone. I'm still a relatively new user on Uncyc, but I'm not too much of a regular n00b and I learn fast, which someone just might even have noticed, with my name on the main page and all... Ehem, yeah... I'd rather ask in advance than do foolish things. That's why I'm happy to have a lot of "Uncles" at Uncyc helping me out. I have sometimes hit the QVFD button, too, but that's always been in the main area. Though that "and the only contributor was Luvvy" -bit made me laugh for quite a while. It's my signature, it is highly unlikely someone else edits it without me raising a ruckus about it... :) Luverly - (Contribs) (Talk) Heart anim.gif 05:41, 10 Mar


it's me, the same VITIM from pt. how can I become a UnCommons' sysop? VITIM 18:29, 31 August 2008 (UTC) whoa, thank you^^! VITIM 21:24, 31 August 2008 (UTC)


for cleaning the pages that I've marked with template:delete! Slade 16:47, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

As VITIM,[edit]

can I be a sysop for UnCommons? I've more than 2-year sysop experience for wikis, and I guess that you already noticed my work here by the recent changes; please consider. Greetings, Slade [talk] @ 00:38, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for the trust, I'll not disappoint the project. And I was wondering: wikipedia:WP:AWB works here? Slade [talk] @ 01:30, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

I don't think AWB has been tried here, but I see no reason why it would not work. We do run the same MediaWiki software as WP.

I'm a little unsure why you marked category:people for deletion; that category (and its subcategories) is huge. --Carlb 14:16, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

I'll test AWB this week. And I didn't marked the categorie, but yes the template:killquote :) (going to hell to avoid more confusion) Slade [talk] @ 17:16, 8 September 2008 (UTC)

User:Hymie le robot[edit]

It's not better if you mark him as a bot? Slade [talk] @ 16:17, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Hi Carlb.
  1. I was wondering: uncommons has a welcome template for IP numbers?
  2. Can you mark User:Maintenance script as a bot? It activity overloads the recent changes. Greets, Slade [talk] @ 16:41, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

I comment here since the UnMeta is down[edit]

We just lost edits of five days in Hikipedia. The chaos seems to be on the menu again. Can it be undone? --Pullamössö 18:14, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Or of six days... May be even more. --Pullamössö 18:15, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

There is a problem with one of the hard drives on one of the servers. I have restored what I can from backups and put the sites back online, but there is missing data from September 7 through 10 on most of the affected wikis. --Carlb 18:36, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
So it's gone completely? --Pullamössö 19:17, 11 September 2009 (UTC)

Oh no! Not him again, he follows me everywhere!!![edit]

Yes I'm here! *Carl runs away with his arms in the air* I recently made an account here and D. G. Neree told me that it is recommended that I can be admin on this UnCommons. Erm... can you make me to an admin than? Thanks beforehand | CartoonistHenning 22:03, 4 October 2009 (UTC)

PS: I love the welcome-template. I jerked myself off for one houre because of that babe!

Olá Carlb[edit]

User name[edit]

Hello Carlb, Can you change my username to "Former User 80"? Then I'd be officially out. Thanks. --Former user (talk) 16:09, 14 April 2016 (UTC)


You could merge the accounts User:Cardenal Fibber and User:MarceloRenard2 keeping the second account, which is the account to use this wiki. Rhubella selo-02.pngRhubella Marie, the rat sockpreppie 30,147 preppieditsRhubella selo-01.png 16:21, 17 April 2016 (UTC)

Hello, I was wanting to ask you something[edit]

Você por acaso desativou o site ? Pois ele está a uma semana ou mais off, enquanto as outras plantaformas parecem estar funcionando bem. Dragomaniaco (talk) 11:41, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

Have you accidentally disabled the site ? Well it's a week or so off, while the other planforms seem to be working well. Dragomaniaco (talk) 11:41, 21 October 2018 (UTC)

The site is back to normal. Thank you very much. Dragomaniaco (talk) 18:38, 21 October 2018 (UTC)


I'v sent Wikimail from Japananese Uncyclopedia. Please check and reply.Thank you.--Muttley (talk) 09:12, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Is it possible to grant me the CheckUser tools in Uncommons?[edit]

Nos ultimos dias eu estou tendo problemas com um vândalo, que vive atacando a mim e a Rhubella Marie, eu já sou Sysop na Uncommons, mas esse vândalo vive burlando o bloqueio modificando o seu IP, então com essa ferramente vai facilitas para, eliminar a faixa de IP dele e assim, impedir que ataque outro usuários.

In the last days I'm having problems with a vandal, who lives attacking me and user: Rhubella Marie, I'm already Sysop in Uncommons, but this vandal is cheating the block by modifying its IP, with this tool will facilitate to, eliminate the IP range of it and thus prevent it from attacking other users.
