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.
Changing POTM Requirements (+4)
- Suggested by Callum Fawsitt
Recently, several times throughout this past year, the POTM voting has been very unpopular. In some months, less than 3 users have voted for a candidate. If it wasn't for myself and Hey.youcp nominating users, then we'd have very few winners of POTM this year. As a trial for December's POTM vote, I've removed the 50 mainspace edit requirements. The main reasoning for this is because some people who don't meet this requirement still deserve to become POTM. Some people have helped the community with several things and deserve it. Others are admins who work hard to manage the Wiki. Others are chat moderators who perform well and are well dedicated to moderating the chat. There are various other reasons too. So, this vote would be to either totally remove the mainspace edit requirement permanently or to lower it from 50. Let me know what you think of this suggestion by voting and commenting. If this vote passes, I'll discuss it with the admins and we'll come to some final conclusion. Callum Fawsitt (talk) 14:39, December 18, 2015 (UTC)

- I would be in favor of removing the mainspace edit requirement in order to allow more users to qualify for Penguin of the Month. However, we can also settle for lowering it to around 5-20 mainspace edits if people believe we should still keep the requirement. --Hey.youcp 06:18, December 19, 2015 (UTC)
- I agree about removing the mainspace edit requirement, some users use this wiki only to chat, but can still be good users (WikiaFrog and many others come to mind). You know it is CustardTheFreeBird 00:06, December 23, 2015 (UTC)

Changing the Editcount requirement for the Chat Mod Calendar
I know I said I wouldn't post on this page again, but I'm doing it for Jon as he wanted me to and I do agree with this. We think that the current requirements of 25 mainspace edits to apply for the Chat Mod Calendar is a bit arbitrary as moderating chat has nothing to do with edits, that would be more like a rollback or a patroller. :P
We think it would be good to either reduce or remove this requirement, thank you for reading. This was Custard Bird, Jon Player and Wikia Frog, back to you in the studio.
