Ohai Darthipedians I took the liberty of changing some of the COTW nomination guidelines/rules because I can. For instance:

#4 The same image cannot go on the main page twice.

That one has never been enforced and in slower times when we didn't have enough nominations we even used old COTW's that were already on the main page once.

#6 If the same image is nominated with two different captions at the same time, the image with the highest vote count wins.

Again bullshit, If a nomination passes it will go on the queue, no matter which one has more votes. The queu may be altered to make sure the same image doesn't appear twice in a row.

#7 After a week's voting, if a nomination has +4 votes, it can go on the queue.

This was changed because sometimes we passed nominations with 2 votes. As long as a nomination has one support vote more it's going on the queue.

Keep in mind that the old set of rules were implememnted when we just started the COTW. When rules are not enforced or when they don't work they gotta be removed/changed accordingly, which I just did. I hope this will speed up the process and give the authors/nominators more freedom.

  • I agree, if rules are generally not enforced or don't work the way they're supposed to work they need to be changed. These rules were first implemented when we did not have any experience with the COTW, now that we've seen the system work I can clearly see that some of the rules (the ones Madclaw mentioned and changed) weren't working the way they were supposed to and weren't being enforced. --Jedimca0(Do or Do Not, There is No Try) 13:50, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Overall, good call. For the record, my earlier statements were simple comments, and were not intended to bring about any hard feelings or whatnot. Please feel free to strike my oppose votes that run counter to these new rules.--Goodwood BattlestarPavanicaLogo.png Wit and Weirdo Extraordinaire 23:22, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
