This article is part of Uncyclopedia's Why? series. See more Why's?
So you have decided to come to Uncyclopedia and read some articles. But you want to know why you should. Well we here at Why? have come up with the perfect answer, why don't you read this, Why Read Uncyclopedia?
What is Uncyclopedia?
Before we can go into the reason as to why you should read Uncyclopedia we should explain more about it first.
The success of the site is so popular that a parody site (Wikipedia) was created to make fun of Uncyclopedia.
Uncyclopedia has many factually accurate articles. Nowhere else can you see properly created articles with facts and figures that are useful in an article.
For example, look at Nihilism. Go ahead, click on the link. You see how the page was blank? Well now you know everything about Nihilism. Now for a counter-example look at Wikipedia. See all the words on the page there? That is not what Nihilism is about, so we see that Uncyclopedia is far more accurate.
In comparison to Wikipedia, Uncyclopedia is far superior in being factually accurate.
Because of it's reliability Uncyclopedia has been mentioned by numerous newspapers, these include:
- New York Times
- Boston Herald
- The Guardian
- The Register
- Taipei Times
- Apple Daily, which, if you don't have the right languages installed will mainly be ????-????.
- Arizona Daily Star
Point of View
Uncyclopedia is completely neutral in it's bias. The NPOV guidelines ensure that Uncyclopedia is at it's best at all times. When an article is found to be lacking in this guideline, everybody works overtime to fix it.
Wikipedia on the other hand does not work on maintaining a point of view.
Uncyclopedia has received criticism in the past for many reasons.
Various sources believe that Uncyclopedia is a parody of Wikipedia, and some have gone so far to say that it is a parody of a different site.
Funny or not funny
Some people believe that Uncyclopedia is not funny, or another site is funnier. The easiest way to show this, and to allow me more bias in writing this why is to just check out Praise of Uncyclopedia.
As we can see, criticism of Uncyclopedia is rather poor, or based on an argument of ignorance, or appeal to emotion, both logical fallacies so we can say that they don't have any merit, yet the strengths alone show that Uncyclopedia is far superior to other encyclopedia and thus you should start reading.
