Nookipedia:Polls

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki
The following contains content adapted from WiKirby's community poll policy and MarioWiki's poll policy.

Nookipedia's main page features a community poll system that readers can partake in. Polls are made possible by the AJAXPoll extension. Users can suggest a poll to be featured, which will be reviewed by a poll committee. These polls are to be swapped on the 1st and 15th of every month.

Guidelines

When suggesting a new poll for Nookipedia, users must keep in mind the following guidelines:

  • Users must suggest a poll that is related to the Animal Crossing series or Nookipedia as much as possible. Nintendo-related polls can be suggested, but they must relate to the Animal Crossing series (e.g. a poll on the recent Nintendo Direct)
  • A minimum of three options should be available for the poll, but should not exceed 10 or more options in general.
  • Any questions must be straightforward and simple.
  • The topic of the poll must be lighthearted; any controversial polls will not be accepted.
  • You may have the option to display your Nookipedia username for suggesting the poll or stay anonymous.

Archiving guidelines

When archiving a poll, use the {{Poll results}} template. Do not remove the poll until each data is stored in this template. The syntax for archiving a poll can be found here:

{{Poll results
|pollname=<Poll question>
|choice1=<Option 1> - <Percentage of option 1>% (<Vote count of option 1> votes)
|result1=<Percentage of option 1>
|choice2=<Option 2> - <Percentage of option 2>% (<Vote count of option 2> votes)
|result2=<Percentage of option 2>
...
|choice10=<Option 10> - <Percentage of option 10>% (<Vote count of option 10> votes)
|result10=<Percentage of option 10>
|totalvote=<Total votes of the poll>
}}

Poll committee

The poll committee is responsible for creating and selecting the poll for Nookipedia. They also hold the responsibility of reviewing any suggested polls and putting them on the forefront.

A week before the next poll is featured, a session shall be started by any member of the committee. They will decide on the new poll to be featured for the next month and review any suggested polls. Once a general consensus is determined by the committee, the poll with the most votes will be the one to be featured on the main page.

To apply for the poll committee, a user must start their application in Nookipedia talk:Polls. Other users will be able to cast their votes to see if the user qualifies. The length of the voting process may vary, but should generally end within 2 weeks. Users have a higher chance of success to gain support to join the poll committee if:

  • They have a long and outstanding contribution history on Nookipedia.
  • They have an active participation in the Nookipedia community.
  • They are a Trustee or higher.

Once the user is accepted in the committee, they should contact the other members in regards to poll selection either through Discord or through email.

Starting a poll

The AJAXPoll syntax to create a poll is as follows:

<poll show-results-before-voting=0>
(Poll question)?
(Option 1)
(Option 2)
...
(Option 10)
I want to see the results.
</poll>

The syntax for creating poll requires a option "I want to see the results." in order to display poll results. Note that changing any part of the poll will reset all votes made. It is recommended to check any grammatical issues with everyone involved before submitting the poll to the main page. It is also recommended not to tamper with the poll until all votes are counted and archived appropriately.
