I am proposing a new, fun, community activity: the Fan-Voting Arena!!! (Working title; we can call it something else when/if we make it) it is based on an idea I got from Kirby wiki, here. I think it can be a fun, new way to see what fans think of various in-game items, monsters, NPC's, etc., and could have a simple set of rules to keep it from getting out-of-hand. If there is something that is like this here already, then please change the suggestion from proposing it to advertising it on the main page. Thank you, ~~Signed,Bulbear4444Slayer's respite.png~~ 00:57, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Discussion

Support - as nom. ~~Signed,Bulbear4444Slayer's respite.png~~ 00:57, April 5, 2010 (UTC) Comment/Oppose - I'm sorry, I'm just not sure I really see a point to this. HaloTalk 01:06, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Haloo Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 01:07, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - See Duel Arena. --Iiii I I I 01:08, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Never mind, didn't read carefully. --Iiii I I I 01:09, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Haloo. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  04:10, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Normally I would support a community-building feature like this, though this one seems too pointless and time-wasting. Sorry. You could create something like this as a subpage of your userpage if this proposal fails. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 08:10, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Just do it yourself in the CC or something if you're bored. Would be pointless to put this on the wiki as a project. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 10:16, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - RS:SNOW anyone? Hello71 13:57, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Patience is a virtue. Let discussion go for a few days to see if somebody comes up with a reason as to why we should have this. You never know. Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 18:39, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - ^ --LiquidTalk 14:06, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I don't see the point. bad_fetustalk 14:40, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I would be happy to maintain it for everyone, I forgot to mention that.~~Signed,Bulbear4444Slayer's respite.png~~ 19:12, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

That doesn't make a difference, it's still useless. Hello71 20:00, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per above, also, aren't some of the other forums like this? I really just don't see the need. Ajraddatz Talk 02:58, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Request for Closure - Per RS:SNOW. HaloTalk 20:57, April 6, 2010 (UTC)

Too soon - less than 2 days of discussion.   az talk   17:32, April 7, 2010 (UTC)
It doesn't stand a chance of getting consensus. And you know that. So, please don't give me 'too soon'. HaloTalk 01:37, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
You are proposing that we stopped discussing the moment someone realises the proposal has no "chance of getting consensus"? If threads are closed 1-2 days after it is originally proposed, how would users propose counter-arguments, modifications/amendments, and compromises? No matter how ridiculuous the proposal, users should be given the opportunity to discuss it, for at least 1-2 weeks, before the thread is closed.   az talk   12:25, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
That leads to way too many threads being open. I think it's clear where the trend is going after a few days. HaloTalk 20:20, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Strong Support - Per stelercus, i have a good reason to support it, the wiki is too f***ing serious!!!! we need something fun here and i think this would be perfect..with restrictions of course --

It's not about seriousness. It's about the fact that this serves no purpose. Anyways, it's basically in effect on the main page, there is a poll there. Keep it there. HaloTalk 01:40, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Why are you supporting per me when I have not supported or opposed? Magic-icon.pngStelercusIlluminated Book of Balance.png 19:21, April 8, 2010 (UTC)
Per the point you made, that is...i think this would be a fun little thing......if we control it and really it doesnt matter if its pointless honestly 20:13, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - Though I see how you could think this wiki is "too" serious, it is meant to be that way. If we all wandered around joking like lunatics, this wiki would be a useless mess. Our serious nature is the reason the wiki is so well done and successful.--Cheers, Off-hand ascension crossbow.pngYodaAscension crossbow.png 01:27, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, imagine what this wiki would be like if everyone was like Rwojy?? We would have death by meme! Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:30, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - I never meant to be an anarchist, and I fail to see what makes this more pointless or difficult than thinks like the Main Page Poll, the RS Wiki Post, or [[Forum:Off Topic]]. It is not that I have anything against these things, but I think that this would not hurt too bad, and if you are worried about bandwidth, it does not have to be as "Fancy" as the one on Kirby Wiki, through the link above.~~Signed,Bulbear4444Slayer's respite.png~~ 21:09, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Removed wanted pages clutter. C.ChiamTalk 06:08, April 9, 2010 (UTC)
I don't think you were an anarchist. I believe the place for this is ON the main page. And bandwidth doesn't have anything to do with it, because it is internet connection specific. HaloTalk 21:15, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Neutral - This has the potential to be a great idea. At the moment it's a bit childish, but if we work on it it could evolve into a type of "Chill lout area" where we talk about in-game things, but it's basically the same as the Clan Chat   Swizz Talk   Events!   15:17, April 9, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - We will not be implementing the proposed "Fan-Voting Arena". C.ChiamTalk 03:38, April 17, 2010 (UTC)
