Nookipedia Proposals allow the community to vote on sitewide changes that would affect a large number of pages or users. This process is not a replacement for community-wide input (see:The Roost) or talk page discussion. Rather, it takes the final product of those discussions (in the form form of a proposal) and puts them to a vote.


  • Proposals are only necessary for changes that would affect a large number of pages or users. Some examples: rules/policy changes, adding/removing namespaces, making major modifications to/replacing templates that affect 1000+ pages.
  • Proposals are for voting on fully worked out ideas. They should not have any yet-to-be-determined components: no 'option a, b, or c'. Proposals may be submitted without prior public comment or feedback, but should not receive major edits or changes once voting has started.
  • Proposals can only be submitted and voted upon by registered users. Comments or votes from unregistered users will be removed immediately. Furthermore, all votes or comments must have a signature attached (~~~~). Users are not allowed to vote on their own proposal, but may respond to comments.
  • Proposals will be open for seven days. This voting deadline can be extended upon request, at the discretion of a Bureaucrat.
  • At the end of the voting period, if the proposal has at least a 2/3 majority (66%) it will be considered successful. A Bureaucrat will then officially close the proposal, and either enact it themselves, or coordinate with other staff members to make sure the proposal is completed.
  • Once a proposal has been enacted, the staff member responsible will make a note here and move the proposal to the Archives.

Proposal: Implement new Nookipedia:Polls policy
A couple of months ago, I suggested reviving the idea of polls on the wiki, and a majority were in support of the idea. As such, I've devised a new policy in regards how the main page polls will work from now on here. To summarize:
  • This policy will call for the switching of the poll every 1st and 15th of every month.
  • A poll committee will be established, tasked with selecting the new poll for the main page. They will start a session to discuss what poll to use a week before the poll is switched out.
  • Guidelines on what a poll should be (poll related to the Animal Crossing series; minimum of three choices, maximum of ten; question are straightforward, simple; lighthearted poll only, no controversial ones; users have the option to display their username for suggesting the poll).
  • Guidelines on how to start a poll and how to archive a poll.

That's a lot to take in, but hopefully if this system is implemented, our main page poll system would work. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 21:38, September 20, 2022 (EDT)

Result: (??%) To be determined.
