No saturation of votes in R1
No saturation of votes in the Final

That should be done next year[edit]

  • Beginning early so voting is open for at least 3 weeks and announce before and make clear (at the beginning of the year) when you want to have the results.
  • Refractor the templates so they use a switch with {{#titleparts:{{PAGENAME}}|1|2}} → 2011 (detecting the year, so concluding to ordinal (sixth) is also possible) so they don't need to be copied (and translated) again.
  • Have a bot running to automatically patrol all vote-edits.
  • Never hardcode links to toolserver or dates, instead writing them into one template and then, it's easy to change this template when required.
  • All the above OR a software-voting extension that is tested and can be accessed by all committee members.
  • A system of preferential voting in the final (drag&drop for example). -- RE rillke questions? 15:16, 25 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Instead of Template:POTY2011/date, can we use separate "date" as follows:{{POTY2011/date/R1start}}, {{Template:POTY2011/date/R1end}}, {{Template:POTY2011/date/R2start}}, {{Template:POTY2011/date/R2end}}?--miya (talk) 14:44, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
  • IRC channel name: this year we use #poty2011, but under the naming rules it may well be #wikimedia-commons-poty.--miya (talk) 03:22, 2 July 2012 (UTC)

This was nice this year, please keep it[edit]
