:::I'm concerned about doing a fight extension thing too procedurally, because I don't think it'd get enough attention to be able to function effectively according to predefined rules. What if we just said "1-2 weeks" on the official thing (maybe mention why), and then we can talk about it in the peanut gallery if we want to extend/not extend a fight. It's only regular users that we know who would change out a fight, so if we spread the word a little they'd all know not to change a fight that's close, and we could have them say in the gallery things like "this fight is lame sauce I'm changing it in 2 more days if no one objects" or "hey nobody change the fight it's too close". I doubt our regular users will disagree much about whether to extend a fight or not.

Should there be the neutral vote in the vote templates? Right now, there's only support, oppose, and comment.

So... once a fight is picked... the others are just dumped into the archive? Isn't that wasteful? Couldn't the second and third best get rolled over to the next week or something?--Mjr162006 13:21, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

New Rule

I think we should make it so you need to make at least 50 GOOD (not spam) edits before one can vote or suggest on here. What does everyone think?Dark Ridley 20:27, 9 April 2009 (UTC)


Skull Kid Artwork (Majora&#039;s Mask)
Xykeb Zraliv – 9. Came the reply, “Long ago, you were offered to fulfill the role of the Bridge, as a being of both Magick and Technology. You could have proven your commitment to your King. You could have chosen your Successor. But in your arrogance, you resisted and created the Child to become the Bridge in your stead.”
TALK – it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
I'm inclined to agree. We've got way too many people that only make accounts to vote for the Temple of Courage and/or Temple of Courage Suggestions.

They've got a bucket on their head and they're plowing through your brand new flat screen TV. God save me, it was barely out of the box." -Dr. Perry Cox
TALK
50 edits? I would have said more... but I suppose that's a happy medium point. At the very least it will get people editing... but what about enforcement?
Samus Suit

Yeah, I agree with this one alright. Of course, I have absolutely no way of knowing how to implement such a system.

How about we add a message to people who have it, and for those who don't yet still vote, we will remove them. Dark Ridley 23:30, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

I agree with this 100%. This is so annoying, and I was just telling AK earlier that I think people (cough cough Big Poe=Nice Guy), are making fake accounts to vote for his selection.

Xykeb Zraliv – 2. Tomorrow I saw the Soul of the Bridgekeeper reduced to ash, and I saw the Bridge created by two-thirds.

Not that I doubt that Big Poe=Nice Guy would do something like that, but what is the evidence pointing to him making a fake account? Did you actually check the IP addresses?

TALK
First off no, i don't have the technology nor the ability to do so. Second lets face it, he seems exactly like the kind of person who would do that. Third look at Godsacredpowers, and tell me what you think. 2 edits, and the edits bumped dark ridley out of first and Big Poe into first. He had no other edits, its a brand new account, it seems very suspicious. of course I could be jumping to conclusions, but I always do notice little stuff like that.

Someone just said User:Freedle may be a puppet as well. But if so, Its definitely not Big Poe's, since he/she voted against his selection.

I'd just like to clear this up: I am not Godsacredpowers. When you bought that up EveryDayJoe I thought you were teasing me about my oh-so-obvious case of narcissism. I'm also more or less a sportsman (even though I don't do sports you know what I mean) so that kind of stuff just disgusts me. --Big Poe=Nice Guy 00:58, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

its quite a good idea. it'll encourage people to edit more but if it does come into play will users under the limit be able to cast anonymous votes? Oni Dark Link 11:03, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

I still think they can vote in the temple of time, just not for suggestions. Dark Ridley 18:42, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

TALK – it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
I personally doubt that Freedle is a fake account just used to vote on suggestions. The only ones he/she supported are the ones suggested by Dark Ridley and EveryDayJoe45, and I'm considering you two are the main ones against all this, I don't think that it's either of you. The only thing I can think of is that it's somebody that votes but didn't suggest a fight, but I'm not so sure about that. Can't really think of anybody that could be.

We might be able to see if Richard or someone could change up some coding to where users get a confirmation at 50 mainspace edits allowing them to vote or something. Only problem I foresee with this is people making stupid edits or a bunch of small edits to one page just to make the mark.

could still help though. or we could just not tell that its 50 votes and just say a commonly editing users are aloud to suggest. Oni Dark Link 17:40, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

We really should have this figured out by next week, since this week seemed to fall through.

I agree, I see people who have just joined this week so they can vote... perhaps we need someone to go through this and remove votes from these newcomers? Also if this is going to be a legitimate rule we should add it to the rule box.Dark Ridley 14:02, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

K... got another question- I was looking at the rules and this new rule shows up (apparentley you guys have been talking about this for a while now) and I just have to ask... what are mainspace edits?

I have a question...

This is probably not the place to ask this, but is their a certain amount of times you can suggest a fight for the ToC? Like if you suggest a fight one week are you not allowed to suggest one the following week?

Don't worry, this isn't a gaming clan or MMORPG, so nobody will look down on you for being a "noob". The rules are pretty much all there in that section. If there's nothing about it there, there's no limit to how many fights you can suggest for the ToC. Just don't suggest the same fight two weeks in a row and all that.


50+ Mainspace Edits Rule

Okay, here is the list. The second List will be removed next week. Feel free to edit this, as I know I will forget some names and I'll really just be looking for those who haven't achieved the 50+ edits rule. Dark Ridley 20:19, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

I don't think it's all that fair to "activate" this new system before everything has been arranged. And there'll need to be some sort of announcement. Regardless, this isn't going to go over well with the non-regulars, not that that should really matter.

This is not all, I've just been busy so I haven't been able to add them all to the list yet. I add them as they vote, and they can add their names to the list as well if they want. Dark Ridley 23:00, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

The mainspace is the category in which you edit any of the articles about things in the Legend of Zelda series. You can tell that it's a mainspace article because it will just have the article name, whereas this, for example, is a Zeldapedia page, which you can tell by the "Zeldapedia:" before the article name.

Did you not see the "Just noticed" at the start of my sentence? You apparently haven't learned this is school yet, but that generally has the meaning "I did not notice until now". I'm not sure if you're able to comprehend this advanced logic, but since I put that comment after supporting it, and we take into account the meaning of "Just noticed", that must mean that I did not notice until after I supported it. So no, I did not support this just to get rid of you. It's a just a very nice afterthought. Besides, it's not hard to get 50+ edits. I was expecting to really only be rid of you for a week or two, so it wouldn't be worth it to me to support it just to get rid of you if I didn't want it regardless of that.

Hey remember what AK said a week ago?

It's the way I express my humor on the internet that I need to work on, not the humor itself (why the @#$% does everybody always make that mistake?). I'd say 95% of the time, I really do understand that people are trying to be humorous. I just don't necessarily respond as if I knew.

Judging by all the discussions that just took place, the answer is no. I've been in the ToC Suggestions since I got on this site a few weeks ago and I'm also the dude who came up with the Majora vs. Zant rumble. If they won't let me odds are they won't let you until you get the 50+ edits. --Big Poe=Nice Guy 01:01, 25 April 2009 (UTC)

Anyone can look at IPs through history. Theres no point into this rule as far as I see, why does this person need to be helpful to the site to vote?

I'm wondering, if I make an edit that gets reverted will the reverted edit subtract from my total edit. For example I make a change thus increasing my edit count to 26 but it gets reverted bumping it down to 25.

I say the one with the least opposes should get through, because it therefore has the highest support-to-oppose ratio.

If there are any neutral voters, then they should change there votes. If it some how comes out even again then it should go to the one posted first, but only after having the same support/oppose/neutral should it just go defacto to the top one. Mathmatically it most likely won't happen, but there is still a small remote chance it could, so I just picked what someone in an incredibly tight situation would pick. We should just have a set day to change the fights as well, so anyone have a good date?

TALK – it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts it hurts
I sympathize with your plight, but it's simply not happening. We can't exclude options simply because a couple of users dislike how people talk about a character they happen to like. By the same token, Portal-Kombat could veto everything from TWW because some people get uppity about the graphical style. You can't change the rules that everybody must follow on a couple of people's whims. The best you can do is use your individual power to manipulate things as best you can, by opposing said Navi fights. And on that note nobody ever really supports Navi fights anymore, so it's kind of a moot point.

100+

Is it possible that we can up 50+ rule to 100+? It might seem a little unfair. But some people edit to reach 50, and then just stop. And I personally don't like that. I think 100 would be a good number. Since it's not hard to hit 100. --BassJapas 00:36, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Then people will edit to reach 100 and just stop. The only way to make people edit continually using the ToC suggestions as an incentive would be to use a percentage. -Isdrakthül 00:41, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
The percent changes as the total edit count gets higher right?
And is 15-20 a good goal? --BassJapas 00:45, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yes to the first, maybe to the second. I don't really know what a good goal would be. -Isdrakthül 00:49, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, this is a kind of tricky situation. The percentage thing might be good, but maybe a proportion of blog edits to mainspace edits would be better, so that blogs are stunted in their growth while encouraging both mainspace edits and talk page edits and the like. Maybe a 1:5 ratio or something (meaning that for every blog edit a user makes, he or she has to make 5 mainspace edits in order to suggest). TheMask-Mimic 01:02, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
Hrmm, do we want to use the ToC as an incentive to make people edit more, or will that just cause people to run around making unnecessary edits just for the sake of upping their count?--FierceDeku 19:35, April 22, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, we do want to use the Temple of Courage for that. However, the point about users making pointless mainspace edits is a good point. If we made it so that they had to make a certain amount of good, non-undone edits (and somehow check this), then that might work. If we did 50 good mainspace edits, then we would need someone to check each new user's 50 edits, which could take a few minutes for each user checked. That might work out, though. Is 50 a good number if we make it so that the edits must be good? (Or we could have it as having either of the following to suggest: 100 of any edits or 50 good edits) TheMask-Mimic 23:36, April 22, 2011 (UTC)

Manually checking up on every user who votes in the ToC for 50 good mainspace edits doesn't sound feasible to me. You'd have to pick out the mainspace edits, read all 50, and if some of them aren't useful, you have to keep track of how many are and go beyond the first 50 edits to see if the user eventually totals 50 useful ones. Also you can be skimming through and dismiss something because it was improperly formatted or used incorrect grammar, but not notice that it actually added useful information (heck, people do that sometimes while going over recent changes). No offense but I think a few minutes per user is a huge underestimation. Nice as it would be to judge if a user's edits have been constructive or not, I don't know that it'd be worth that kind of effort.

What if we set a limit to ensure the user's edits were recent? Like, you have to have at least 25 mainspace/talk page/forum edits within the last month or something. It's still relatively easy to check, and ensures that no matter how many edits the user sprinted up to in order to get voting rights, they have to keep contributing instead of dropping off mainspace.--FierceDeku 00:07, April 23, 2011 (UTC)

That idea sounds pretty good, but what is the easy way to check? Does it say anywhere how many mainspace edits were made in the past month? If not, then that would be too hard to measure to be worth it. TheMask-Mimic 00:43, April 23, 2011 (UTC)
There's no tool to automatically do this so far as I'm aware (I could have sworn there was a list of special pages but I can't find it now). It'd be a matter of looking over a user's contributions subpage, counting the number of edits in appropriate sections, and when you reach the required number, see if that edit was within a month of the date. Not that hard if it's a small number of edits required within the month, though even that might not get checked thoroughly by people. How time consuming it is for us to sort through this and how strongly we encourage ToC goers to edit would be proportional to how many edits are required.--FierceDeku 02:03, April 23, 2011 (UTC)

Time Between Fights

It says to have fights up for one week, but it's of course been much slower lately what with there being low activity in the ToC suggestions and in general. I'm about done with my summer busyness and was thinking I could start helping to keep the ToC regularly up to date, but I want to ask if we should wait longer than a week between fights since it's been so slow lately. The ToC is very visible, being visited by a lot of newer users, so it'd be good if it updated on the schedule it said it had (whatever we change that to). Wouldn't want the wiki to look sloppy or inactive up front before people have a chance to realize how totally awesome we are. My first thought would be a 2 week standard, to keep it moving but still allow time for suggestions to happen. We keep getting votes that late anyway. Thoughts?--FierceDeku 07:25, August 13, 2011 (UTC)

As I've remarked before, the ToC isn't a great gateway to actual editing, as very few even half-decent editors have stuck around. I think you overestimate the potential and intellectual capacity of the average voter here. Nevertheless, time constraints should be upheld, if only for the sake of it. However, two weeks may be a bit too much if there is a "boring, one-sided" fight. One idea is to give it another week if the fight is close and use the one-week-more-or-less when it's not, but I suppose that may make the whole business a bit too complicated for its own good. --AuronKaizer! 11:08, August 13, 2011 (UTC)
What if in the suggestions we add a section where you can vote to keep the current battle another week? This would give an option to be able to keep a good battle going an extra week (or possible two depending on how we limit it) but at the same time would keep a not so interesting battle to a one week limit. --Birdman5589 (talk) 16:01, August 13, 2011 (UTC)
I'm concerned about doing a fight extension thing too procedurally, because I don't think it'd get enough attention to be able to function effectively according to predefined rules. What if we just said "1-2 weeks" on the official thing (maybe mention why), and then we can talk about it in the peanut gallery if we want to extend/not extend a fight. It's only regular users that we know who would change out a fight, so if we spread the word a little they'd all know not to change a fight that's close, and we could have them say in the gallery things like "this fight is lame sauce I'm changing it in 2 more days if no one objects" or "hey nobody change the fight it's too close". I doubt our regular users will disagree much about whether to extend a fight or not. In a Deku Nutshell, I'm saying AK/Birdy's 1 week with extensions for close fights idea, and just do the extensions informally via comments.--FierceDeku 03:54, August 15, 2011 (UTC)
I think this would be a good idea, with the "keep it open"/"close it" idea. But what would be the vote standard? And how would we go about it? Either way, it sounds like it'd be good. – zzi 16:43, August 16, 2011 (UTC)
I think that it should be very informal and go by whatever the Peanut Gallery says, even if it's IPs or new user or whoever talking. (Another option would be what Birdman was saying about having a new section for this; I'm also okay with this as long as it's informal and all, but not voting, just saying "Hey, isn't it time to change the fight?" or something like that).
