Newspaper Issue 197 Color Vote Booth

The Club Penguin Wiki is a democratic wiki in which every user represents a part of the community. To make our wiki democratic, all of the decisions are taken to community vote first, to hear the voice of our community (from normal users, chat mods, rollbacks, admins and even bureaucrats), after a discussion takes place (only if needed). There are many things that involve voting in our wiki: we have Penguin of the Month, Featured Article, Featured Image and Item of the Month which are monthly votes. Also, there are many votes that take place on the Vote Page of the wiki, such as removing/adding a policy etc.

To vote you must ...

The results if you broke the above rules...

  • If an inactive user voted - Vote will be removed as soon as he/she votes.
  • If a user having less than 50 mainspace voted - Vote will be removed as soon as he/she votes.
  • If a user votes in place of another user - Vote will be removed as soon as he/she votes.
  • If a user nominates without an admin confirmation - Vote will be removed as soon as he/she votes (this point doesn't apply for any votes other than the Wall of Fame and Vote Page).
  • If a user votes for a user just because he or she is a friend (if he/she includes it in a comment) - It would instantly be removed.
  • If a user makes a comment that is disrespectful to another user (from teasing, making fun of, swearing etc.) - His/her vote will be removed and he/she will be blocked.
  • If a user nominates an image which contains inappropriate content - He/she will be blocked.
  • If a user makes a mass-message advertising about a vote - Three warnings, then if he/she does not remove the advertisements, a block.

Two more things...

  • These rules apply for all other votes, like the Wall of Fame.
  • You may get an infinite block if you broke the rules more than 3-4 times.
