Just making this to fix the wanted page (It's easier than fixing the coding). Feel free to comment on whatever though.

Hooray for only one wanted page. Although on my computer it says Help:Formatting is wanted despite existing

What do we do?

What are we supposed to do if there are only 2 suggestions, and they both look like they might lose?

I have no idea. I suppose we just add more and see if they are good.

EveryDayJoe45 – "Ours was the first revolution in the history of mankind that truly reversed the course of government, and with three little words: "We the people." "We the people" tell the government what to do, it doesn't tell us. "We the people" are the driver, the government is the car. And we decide where it should go, and by what route, and how fast. Almost all the world's constitutions are documents in which governments tell the people what their privileges are. Our Constitution is a document in which "We the people" tell the government what it is allowed to do. "We the people" are free."--Ronald Reagan

Well we only change them every two months or so. And you may not realize, but there is already a few that have passed. So for now at least, we are in the clear.

Eh

Seems to me that using the actual poll coding may ruin the fun of seeing the poll results. Since people vote here too, it may or may not be a preview of what the real poll results may look like. Why not just add it in list form? --AuronKaizer! 16:53, November 4, 2010 (UTC)

It seems like a better idea. Since if people add or remove stuff, the counter goes back to zero. --BassJapas 14:06, March 29, 2011 (UTC)
I think that we should keep it in poll format, but it doesn't matter too much. Since this is sampling only users of Zeldapedia (and maybe a few wandering IPs) and the other one is sampling anyone who stumbles across our site, we might get differences. Also, if we keep the poll previews, then we get to see "mini-results" of polls that don't make it. TheMask-Mimic 04:51, July 27, 2011 (UTC)

Mainspace Edit Requirement?

Okay, this is starting to feel like Temple of Courage Suggestions all over again. Users who rarely edit mainspace are suggesting a lot of polls, usually ones that receive a lot of opposes. It's like this is their backup to Temple of Courage Suggestions or something. I think that we should put a mainspace requirement here, just like the Temple of Courage Suggestions. Maybe 50, like the Temple of Courage Suggestions.

Sounds like a good idea. It would cut down on the number of users who only add suggestions to polls and make no constructive edits.
We've got 15 polls and only 2 of them have a positive score. Many have more opposes than I thought we had active editors ;p I don't know whether to take that as a sign that too many people are suggesting weak poll ideas, or that we desperately need plenty of people to suggest polls so that we can have some good ones among the fray. Since both of our positive-scoring polls of the moment were actually suggested by people with under 50 mainspace edits, I can't really support this at the moment, though I'm not that strongly against it. Also, judging by the ToC, even with <50 editors filtered out, we can't expect suggestions to get a positive score very often these days. So right now I'm personally leaning towards holding off on the post limit, and encouraging experienced editors to keep trying to put forth good suggestions even if there are a lot of (vehemently opposed) polls already there.--FierceDeku 05:48, July 27, 2011 (UTC)
By thw way, I wanted to go back through and see how many of the polls that made it were suggested by people who had <50 mainspace at the time, but almost none of the suggestions are signed, and trying to search the history for them turned out to be harder than completing the Water Temple while drunk, sleep deprived, on the phone, and driving a car with only 2 tires through a rainstorm. And not the 3DS water temple with the cheap little guide lines. Back in my day, we didn't have none of these lines and hints constantly telling us how to play the game, and we were happy! And we didn't have to wave our arms around neither!

Yeah, I'm for this. FD does bring up a decent point that some of these non-mainspace editors have done decent polls, but we're lacking in active mainspace editors right now anyway and it'd give these guys some incentive. I don't want them just pouring in here to suggest a bunch of polls no one wants. We have far too many suggestions as of now anyway.

Okay, I waited a few days and we have only one oppose (and he's okay with it anyway [I even talked with him outside here]). I think that it's fair to say that we can implement it now. If anyone has any lingering comments about it, bring them here and we can still change it back if necessary.
