If you can't write, don't attempt to contribute to Sydapedia. No one wants to read a giant fucking wall of text comprised of your long, unfunny run-on sentences. Learn how to write a fluid, concise sentence. Oh, and there are these fucking things called PARAGRAPHS
. Look into them.
Article Clean Up

Due to someone posting inaccurate, unhelpful, and just plain old stupid shit, Sydapedia article clean up commenced starting last week sometime. By now, we can only hope most of the wiki has been repaired. How big is this wiki, anyway? Eight pages? We should almost be done, at any rate. I'll edit this when it's finally done... if it ever is.

There's no news, but I'm tired of looking at the same news post that's been here for almost 2 years. Nothing is really happening right now.
Repel The Enemy Forces!
Four score and several years ago, our ancestors created Sydapedia. The land used to be peaceful, but recently some shithead decided to post pornographics of Chinese variety. This was the first time somebody had really decided to post crap that needs to be deleted. I had a dream that my fellow Wikiers who did not have the right to delete articles would help the Wiki by somehow informing the people who DO have those rights of the articles, so they can be carefully and swiftly deleted. Thanks to the efforts of me
, we can. Please see the DELETE THIS SHIT!
article for details. There will be only two rewards for helping the wiki: peace and unity. And so, my fellow Wikiers, ask not what Sydapedia could do for you, but what you could do for Sydapedia. Thank you.

Honestly, I don't like doing this, but I really don't know anything about the show, and it's a damn shame that Syd has made a ton of articles about it, yet the best we can do is a link to Wikipedia. So someone who knows something please
work on the Are You Afraid of the Dark?
article? Please? I'll give you a cookie if you do.

I was looking through Sydapedia recently and came upon a green link: Locked Threads. So I went out of my way to sift through all of the General Discussion topics and found all of the locked threads. Adding new entries from the other boards is encouraged. You can check the page out Here.
If you want to add more entries, visit the discussion page
to find out the current completion of the archive. If you add something, please document it on the discussion page.

Over the coming weeks, I will be cleaning up Sydapedia. The Sydapedia is meant to be a collection of site history, forum in-jokes, information on forum members, and various information on pop culture. Pages which I feel are not related to these subjects are going to be deleted with extreme prejudice and without further warning.

The Complete Sydapedia
category is now,
with the exception of a couple of protected pages,
gone. Don't add new articles to it. Use Special:Allpages
to browse all articles of Sydapedia. You can find the now uncategorized articles at Special:Uncategorizedpages
. Feel free to add those to new or already existing categories.
Most Wanted - June 2008
SydLexia.com NES Challenge
The Sydlexia.com NES Challenge
is underway. Forumers will compete in a myriad range of events, all coordinated by Syd
. Participants must sign up on the forums. Are you a bad enough dude to save President Ronnie?
Tyop to the rescue!
While I sit here watching The Shawshank Redemption
, and Andy crawling through 500 yards of shit smelling foulness, I saw that Tyop
has been hard at work!
Way to be man! The main page has some new additions and is looking much better. Also the categories are looking much nicer.
Oh... there goes the Warden... and BOOOM! Warden Norton
The forums seem to be having a little bit of trouble. Hopefully someone will fix it? Maybe? Anyone?
Did someone change their DB password and forget to update their applications?
Maybe some php changes?
The news page is down too, and Wordpress is crying like a little bitch.
I have been working on this Wiki's look and feel. Open source crafted projects like MediaWiki are made by a special breed of human being. They don't think like... well, most others. So to change the style of this page, I have had to try to think like an open source web programmer. Personally I think that someone hitting me in the face with a shovel would probably help at this point. None the less, I am making headway. If you want to make some comments about how it all looks, do me a favor and post here Talk:Sydapedia Style Discussion
. For now I have run out of time, but I'll continue soon.
We really need these pages created...
Here are some pages that we need people to work on.
