Forum:List of Previously rejected proposals
This is the page where we will vote on whether or not to add particular topics to our list of Previously rejected proposals. To be added to the list, a topic
- Must have been discussed and rejected at least three times.
- The community must have rejected the proposal overwhelmingly (approx.90%)
Wikians are not forbidden to re-raise these topics, but should note the reasons for why they failed. Such re-raised proposals must consider these objections strongly and explicitly address arguments against those objections before proposing anything similar again.
Disallow I.P.s from editing
It is recognized that most vandalism comes from random IP addresses, however, most IP edits are not vandalism. We believe that IPs contribute a lot of great material to this wiki, and that disallowing them from editing would violate the concept of a wiki, that being a site that anyone can edit, and we would lose a lot of great contributions.

Add to list - However, that is not to say that we may need to block them on certain pages, but this is unlikely.09:36, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Add to list - I don't think that hard working IP editors should be let down by vandals, who take advantage of the anonymity of the IP address. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 10:57, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Comment - Is the criteria set in concrete (so if you try to raise banning ips again without a new reason, the thread is locked) or is is just guidelines for people to consider when creating a thread?? If it is the first then I would have to oppose. Often, it is not what people are saying but how they say it that matters in Yew Grove. If someone believes that ips should not be able to edit (as an example) and without any new argument spends hours perfecting an argument on how ips should be banned, it would be possible that it could pass without any new evidence. By comparing posts to the criteria, you might prevent future discussions from occurring. Evil Yanks talk 11:01, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
- Comment - I believe it will just be guidelines for users. If a thread does pop up that is listed here, maybe we could just direct the user to this, if their ideas and reasons are nothing new. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 11:17, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Add to list or Support - per Degeneret. Anyone can and should be able to edit, unless of course, the pages are protected according to the Protection policy. 13:45, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Support/Add to list - Found another one. 15:24, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Add to list - Self explanatory and a good example of something that should be put on this list. New tools that are done along the lines of the semi-protect tool or perhaps other aspects to a wiki that could limit but not prohibit anonymous editing could be considered, but elimination of IP edits is pretty much cast in concrete at this point as something that won't happen. --Robert Horning 15:47, October 14, 2009 (UTC)
Add to list - Per common sense.20:37, October 16, 2009 (UTC)
Support - In the Spirit of the Wiki. The WikiGhost, if you will. Gone. 15:59, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Add to list - Good idea ;)
