FANDOM


The Wiki's Vote Page is made to hold all kinds of votes.


When a vote is held, you will be allowed to sign your username, using four tildes ~~~~


Each vote will be published in this way:

==<Vote name> (0)==
:Suggested by <your name> and confirmed by <administrator name>
===For (0)===
===Against (0)===
===Comments===

Nominee Notice: After being nominated, you can enter reasons on why you should be nominated next to the "nomination sentence". A vote closes when 14 days is up. The vote difference is calculated by the number of votes "for" subtracted by the number "against". The user option with the most vote differences wins.

Voter Notice: You must vote in either "For" or "Against". If you vote in for, you have to sign underneath the "For" heading. To do this you have to type this in:
#~~~~

After you have signed it, you must change the number in the brackets up by 1. (e.g if it was at 3, it means 3 people have already signed it. Change it to 4 when you sign it.) This is also the same with the number by their name. If you vote for, you must also increase the number beside his or her name by 1.

Please remember to use "#" instead of the usual "*", because it numbers the votes making it easier to count them.

You can also remove your vote. If in any case you change your mind, do not remove your vote completely, just strike it out and move it to the back of the list.

Please discuss with an administrator before creating a new vote!

To allow POTW winners from other languages to be listed on Penguin of the Week (+2)

Suggested by CPPerapin and confirmed by Hey.youcp

  1. We shouldn't have to navigate to a different wiki to have to see the POTW winners of other languages.
  2. We can read the penguin names, there is no other text in other languages, any English speaking penguin can read the names, so there's no need to translate.
  3. Removing the POTW winners of other languages decreases the content of the article. If we keep the POTW winners of other languages on there, it can be good for archival reasons and also for general notability (e.g. if a English user knows a familiar French user that won the POTW - or if someone was looking for a Spanish POTW winner with a certain penguin name on the article).
  4. Club Penguin is all about community and is global, so this wiki should be too. Note that we do have "Names in Other Languages" sections and list servers from other languages in the List of servers page, and the POTW winners of other language are relevant to Club Penguin because they won it in Club Penguin.

Therefore, regardless of language, they should be listed.

  • Sure, I don't see why not. --Hey.youcp Surfboard Pin 04:37, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
  • I think it wouldn't be useful to the vast majority of readers, plus I believe since this is an English wiki we should only focus on things from the English version of Club Penguin (this includes the What's New Blog.) I'd like to see French winners on the French Club Penguin wiki. Not including the French winners does not decrease the quality of the article, they are not necessary in the first place, plus it's questionable if they're relevant enough to be on that page on this wiki. One more thing: it seems kind of ridiculous to me how we're having a vote on something so small. Kallie Jo (talk) 04:48, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
    • I completely disagree. :) ~ Perapin GreenModeratorBadge (Contact) 04:51, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
      • As you usually do with my opinions.. Kallie Jo (talk) 04:57, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
        • By the way, if it's not useful for the "vast majority of readers", then they can choose to read the winners for the English only. People choose what they read on an article. True! ~ Perapin GreenModeratorBadge (Contact) 05:07, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
  • I've checked all the equivalent wikis in languages on which POTW is featured, and only the French wiki seems to have an article about the topic, however, it is a bit messed, and i'm not sure how up-to-date it is. The German and the Spanish wikis are missing these pages (The Russian and Portuguese CP blogs don't seem to have POTW posts). So why not expanding these wikis (if you know any of these languages), and the moment the article has been created, add a [[lang:PAGENAME]] link to the bottom of that article (or in a different form)? I mean, we could also do that with pages that may have similar issues as well, or direct other people for "stub interwiki articles" on some special cases. Preston108 tried to do something similar but it never quite took off, and didn't include actually the expansion of articles in different wikis. If we focus on specific pages it could work.

    • Or for an easier and more effective approach, add all the winners of the POTW on this wiki. The other language wikis are supposed to be expanded by users who are fluent in those languages. Unless we are going to wait for someone awesome foreign users to expand the other language wikis, contributing to other language wikis is not the best approach, as in most cases, they're not well organized and can't be unless they become highly active by users of other languages. And note that influencing the expansion to wikis of other languages is not the best idea, it is better to be unified in one wiki to add to our "community" aspect. Translation tools in browsers are on the rise, too. ~ Perapin GreenModeratorBadge (Contact) 05:57, May 18, 2014 (UTC)

To use the Club Penguin Wiki:Promotion Marking Schedule (+7)

Suggested by CPPerapin and confirmed by Roger6881

If this vote gets passed, this new system will be used by admins to make a more formal and informed judgement when promoting a user to a certain user right. Discussions will be less informal this way, as well as more authentic, and is more likely to choose to promote the right people for the right user right.

  • Good criteria. -- 10:38, May 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • Please note that admins can use this new system on the admin wiki if they want to use this in private. ~ Perapin GreenModeratorBadge (Contact) 10:55, May 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • Yeah!! This is good. ✓ Kyfur New Emote (talk) 11:13, May 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • I think this is a good system because - even though we expect all users to follow the behaviour guidelines, it will make a good checklist for when we want to promote someone; we may forget about all of these, after all. --Roger6881 (talk) 11:18, May 5, 2014 (UTC)
  • I think it would be good ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) kthnxbai 19:23, May 9, 2014 (UTC)
  • Great idea. This will make promotions much more organized. --Hey.youcp Surfboard Pin 04:37, May 18, 2014 (UTC)
