WiKirby:Proposals

Your opinions matter!

Due to WiKirby's recent surge in community interaction, we have seen fit to implement a formal proposals page. Up to this point, proposal-handling has been informal, with larger ones handled via referendum, but this page serves to clear away any ambiguity and provide a set of procedures for suggesting changes to the wiki, whether that be the handling of certain content, or changes and additions to policy.

How to make a proposal

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

==(insert proposal here) (insert date here)==

{{Oppose}}
{{Neutral}}

Once a proposal is made, the voting period begins (see voting regulations below). Voting period for a proposal ends two weeks after it starts, at 11:59:59 P.M. UTC on the 14th day of voting. If a proposal which follows all rules receives a basic majority of support, it is sent to the Administrators + for final consideration. The administrators + may decide to veto the proposal, which means that it will need to be voted on again and receive a supermajority of 75% or more to be passed again. If this happens, the proposal will be enacted, and cannot be vetoed again. If the proposal fails at any step, it will be rejected.

Restrictions

Users may propose many different changes or additions to the wiki. The following things, however, may not be voted on:

  1. proposals which target specific users (such as bestowing or removing ranks or rights).
  2. proposals which violate the law, as specified in the general content policy.
  3. proposals which seek to overturn a recently (within the last 8 weeks (or 56 days)) approved proposal.
  4. re-submitted proposals which were recently (within the last 8 weeks (or 56 days)) rejected.

Current Proposals
