Hmmm, thinkin' balloons.jpg might be a better image for this (or balloons2, I cut off the watermark and extra white space) - the goat is for the mainspace! humanUser talk:Human 17:51, 30 January 2008 (EST)

Thanks, Human, for de-uglifying the template. I chose the goat pic and color scheme mostly as placeholders, to tide things over until someone could improve it. Which you did. ¡Muchas gracias! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 19:57, 30 January 2008 (EST)
You're quite welcome. It certainly needed an injection of, well, fun! You've been on quite a roll with your seven-keystroke-saving templates, haven't you (u & f)? We could use one called "t" as well. I'll let you guess what that would be for... humanUser talk:Human 20:10, 30 January 2008 (EST)
Uh... Template? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:12, 31 January 2008 (EST)
Nice guess... and very convoluted, of course. OK, I meant "talk" humanUser talk:Human 00:16, 31 January 2008 (EST)
Eh, I think that's way beyond my skill level. I actually "stole" template:u straight from Uncyclopedia, and making a funspace equivalent was quite easy. All I do is steal code, I don't actually understand it. Additionally, I think the template would be too complex to be practical. It would have to be able to replace all these conventional links using fewer keystrokes than otherwise:
  • [[talk:calculator|calculator]] → calculator
  • [[talk:calculator|here]] → here
  • [[fun talk:calculator|fun:calculator]] → fun:calculator
  • [[fun talk:calculator|calculator]] → calculator
  • [[fun talk:calculator|here]] → here

Hmmm, I could take a crack at that. We have articles on calculators? Wow. humanUser talk:Human 11:44, 31 January 2008 (EST)

Fun?[edit]

Some of the articles linked to are only mildly fun. (like the water one) DoggedamesP 15:40, 8 February 2008 (EST)

paratroopers[edit]

I want to make this so no parameters are required, using PAGENAME as a default, if it's the same as the fun article title. But I forget how. humanUser talk:Human 15:42, 8 February 2008 (EST)

I purposely didn't do that, because sometimes the related funspace article doesn't share the same name. I also wanted to leave open the possibility of linking to an unrelated funpage, just for kicks. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:40, 8 February 2008 (EST)
You do it conditionally, so the functionality is still there. But if the fun article has the same title and you don't want a different text for the link, all ya gotta do is type {{fun}}. humanUser talk:Human 18:32, 8 February 2008 (EST)
I dun it, and altered the instructions accordingly. humanUser talk:Human 19:13, 8 February 2008 (EST)
I saw what you did and thanks! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:03, 9 February 2008 (EST)
You're quite welcome. I like simple defaults + complexity if desired. humanUser talk:Human 22:21, 9 February 2008 (EST)
