I propose that, in my quest to bring this wiki up to the political standards of Wookieepedia, I think we should alter our policy on voting to include this clause: ...must have a majority of administrators, a unanimous bureacrat vote, and a supermajority of user votes. This is how Wookieepedia does it. I shall cast my vote now, and voting shall end one week from now, although it may be extended to my typical "one week after the last vote [required there is an objection present]", otherwise it will just end a week after my vote (i.e. the first vote).--Lord Cutler BeckettPort Royal 00:39, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

  • Wait, what's a supermajority? --Wanderingshadow 13:23, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
    • This is a supermajority. I think this is a too strict and an absolute majority would be enough. If there are more then two options, even an absolute majority is not granted. So what will you do if no option reaches one? Organize a second match between the two most popular ones? And what does "majority of administrators" mean? the one of all administrators (currntly 3 of 4) or of those who participated in the voting. and since a bureaucrat's vote is neccesary, what if no bureaucrat will participate in the election in any way?

      • Supermajority is the fairest and safest way to ensure that the motion in question is overwhelmingly suited to the desires of our contributors, for instance, a 57% outcome of a hypothetical vote is perhaps too closely cut to ensure that it suits everyone. If no conclusion is met, then, as I have done before, a new motion must be issued; for if the vote does not reach a supermajority, it dies, and must be brought up a second time, preferably after a 2 or 3 month lapse in time. By majority of administrators, I mean a percentage greater than 50%, of all active administrators. If no bureacrat is active in the debate, then a short vote of administrators may override the need for a bureacrat's vote. A bureacrat's vote cannot be overturned.--Lord Cutler BeckettPort Royal 23:44, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
