When discussions or debates take place, often the outcome might be holding a vote. Votes take place for a variety of reasons. When a vote is taking place, users will vote for one of the options. If the user chooses, he/she can give a reason why he/she votes for one. Some voting will be open to all users who have at least 5 edits on the Wiki, some only for users on the Admin Team (Chat Mods, Rollbacks, Administrators and Bureaucrats). However, all users are entitled to adding their opinions under comments, even if they can't vote. Just because the vote may not count, doesn't mean your opinion shouldn't be heard or taken into consideration.
- One vote per person. No voting more than once. Using sock-puppetry (a second account) to get an extra vote automatically results in a block, as per the Blocking policies
- Users should vote by signing under one of the voting options at hand, to sign, you use four tildes (~~~~). Most votes should have a comment section if you would like to do more than just vote, but add in your opinion as well, but please keep your opinion in a respectful tone. Just because you don't like or agree with something is not a reason to be a jerk about it
- The user who opens a vote will close it, as long as at least 24 hours has passed. With votes open to all users there must be at least 12 votes and a margin between the two sides of at least 2 or 3 one way or another. For votes open to only those users on the Admin Team then the majority of the team must have voted.
- Regular users may start votes, as long as they have received Admin approval to do so.
