Nookipedia:Proposals

From Nookipedia, the Animal Crossing wiki

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 of a proposal) and puts them to a vote.

Rules[edit]

  • 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 be a binary yes/no choice and 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. If a proposal does not follow these rules or is otherwise deemed unfit, it may be vetoed at the discretion of a Bureaucrat.
  • 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%) support and five total votes 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.
    • If the proposal does not have five votes at the end of the voting period, the voting period will be extended for seven days.
  • Once a proposal has been enacted, the staff member responsible will make a note here and move the proposal to the Archives.

How to make a proposal[edit]

All proposals must be made using the template provided below, posted under the "Current Proposals" heading:

| description = Additional proposal details/explanation.
| comments    = User commentary on proposal.
| votes       = User votes on proposal: {{Support}} or {{Oppose}} + signature (~~~~).
}}

Changing a mass of gallery pages[edit]

Proposal: Changing a mass of gallery pages
How about instead of having "Tree/Gallery" as the title, we add {{DISPLAYTITLE:Gallery Relating To ''Tree''? On Furniture/New Horizons/All furniture, editors added {{DISPLAYTITLE:List of all furniture in {{NH|short|nolink}}}}. I think we should do what I specified above on the gallery pages. Now, this will affect more than 1000 pages so this is why I am doing a proposal. ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 15:28, May 12, 2024 (EDT)
Comments:
  • I don't think this makes the titles much more informative than they are now. Certainly not by enough to make it worth making the thousands of edits that would be required, even with the help of a bot. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 12:51, May 13, 2024 (EDT)
  • Agreed with Drago. The display titles on the list pages clarify what the pages are, which isn't clear from the real title (e.g. someone seeing "Furniture/New Horizons" might not know it's a list of furniture). However, the gallery page titles already make it clear to the reader that they are a gallery relating to their respective subject. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 15:05, May 13, 2024 (EDT)
  • But listen. I want readers reading a more welcoming title than in the form: subject/gallery. P-L-E-A-S-E. ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 18:58, May 13, 2024 (EDT)
  • Honestly, I'm opposing it. The naming scheme for galleries already makes sense, Gallery/tree already gets the point across, a gallery of images showing trees. Plus, while not my biggest concern, it uses a bit more byte space that could go to minor edits on the page itself. I oppose this. Login (talk) 14:26, May 18, 2024 (EDT)
  • Too much effort for what it's worth and the current system does just fine and has worked for years, same can be said for other wikis that use Gallery pages pages as they use a similar system to Nookipedia. Why change what isn't broken... ~PoizonMushro0mPoizonMush Sig.png 03:37, May 26, 2024 (EDT)

  • Oppose Oppose I just think that there’s not really a point in sooooo much work that can be avoided as the titles are good. Thanks, --SunsetBay (Talk) Bob NL Villager Icon.png 01:04, May 25, 2024 (EDT)
  • But listen. I have great ideas, and I am pretty sure this will make nookipedia more popular. ACL.png Acnh Player (talk) ACL.png 23:52, May 25, 2024 (EDT)

Adding tips from our experiences on to pages.[edit]

Proposal: Adding tips from our experiences on to pages.
Adding a "Tips and Tricks" section, such as giving tips on the Turnip Market. - unsigned comment from Melodii (talkcontribs)
Comments:
  • Nookipedia is an encyclopedia, not a guide. It is our goal to provide readers with factual information, not to give tips or tricks. Guide content would be better suited for something like StrategyWiki. ~ AlexBot2004 (Talk) 17:05, May 26, 2024 (EDT)
  • I'll have to agree with AlexBot here and say that StrategyWiki is a far better place for guide content. FYI, we did have guides in the past which had their own namespace. I wouldn't support bringing them back. Drago (talk) Drago PC Villager Icon.png 10:58, May 27, 2024 (EDT)
