Commons:Requests and votes/Voting Approval Poll

Pictogram voting info.svg Info This poll is now closed.

Please see Commons talk:Administrators/Requests and votes and particularly Commons talk:Administrators/Requests and votes#Next steps. The community has been discussing requirements for suffrage (the right to vote) in nominations and related questions (for all other permissions and their corresponding removals), as well as the qualifications to stand for adminship.

Preliminary polls to determine community thinking were held and revealed a wide variety of options. Some editors commented that multiple options would be acceptable to them, but there was no clear consensus for a single choice. Therefore we shall use approval polling to determine policy. The following are approval polls designed to get to a final consensual policy. There are two broad questions, one related to suffrage:

  • What are the requirements for suffrage, if any?

and one related to qualifications:

  • What are the requirements to stand for adminship, if any?

Contents

Poll mechanics

Each poll will consist of a series of choices. The choices have been seeded with the comments made previously, and are sorted into a roughly ascending order. Prior to the start of the poll, editors should feel welcome to add additional choices. Adding them after the poll starts is also allowed but may not result in them getting as many supports as they might have if added prior to the start. Commenters should sign under EVERY choice they find acceptable. This may mean a large number of comments need to be left so as to reduce edit conflicts, section headings may be introduced to allow separately editable sections. The choice which gets the largest number of supports will become the policy.

  • Polling will start at 0:00:00 UTC on 24 March 2008 and end exactly one week later at 0:00:00 UTC on 31 March 2008
  • Anyone who has an account on commons, regardless of edits or time, is eligible to vote.
  • Votes from IPs will be disregarded.
  • Unsigned votes may be disregarded or converted.
  • Please just vote, don't post long comments. There is a talk page, you can link a comment there to your vote if you want.

Suffrage

The following sections all relate to suffrage. The following points apply regardless of the criteria that wins the highest approval:

  • Being "a bit off" in meeting the criteria is OK, the crats are given some latitude, but not a lot. The bureaucrat will give a short rationale under the vote. During the vote, anyone can raise an issue to be considered.
  • Only "useful edits count"... A useful edit is one that is other than dinking around with one's own user page or making a null edit... uploading something, commenting on something, fixing something, categorising, these are all examples. Bureaucrats have reasonable discretion here as well.

REMINDER: Please sign under EVERY option you can live with. ALL comments will be moved to the talk page, even one or two words....

Suffrage Requirement

The choice selected here will be the suffrage requirement (what qualification, if any, is required to cast a vote (rather than just comment) in a permissions related question?).

No edit requirement and no time requirement

Just having an account here is sufficient. No requirement for an account anywhere else.

  1. VanTucky 23:08, 23 March 2008 (UTC) It's the job of a bureaucrat to determine the ultimate consensus, and they have the discretion to simply ignore any votes made in clear ignorance of Commons standards for adminship. Otherwise, suffrage should be open to all registered accounts.
  2. --Miaow Miaow 00:20, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
  3. Neither of these requirements need to be formal. The discussion should be based on informed consensus, not voting. Ultimately, bureaucrats must use their discretion; they should ignore sockpuppets and meatpuppets, and consider reasoned arguments, not just support/oppose.

No edit requirement and no time requirement here, 200 edits and 1 week somewhere else

A brand new account is fine, but must have 200 contributions and 1 week history elsewhere. This applies on any WM account (no Commons requirement, other than having an account and crosslinking it.)

Eligibility

The following relate to eligibility to stand for admin. The existing policy is 200 edits here and 2 months. The following points apply regardless of which criteria gets the highest approval vote:

  • The qualifications given are guidelines only, any community member can surface any issues with the qualifications and the community will decide, by their vote, whether they care.
  • The qualifications given are grandfathered (meaning that they don't apply) to all existing admins. Existing admins do not need to comply to this. This exemption applies to the admin forever even if the admin resigns or is involuntarily removed (for inactivity or removal).

REMINDER: Please sign under EVERY option you can live with. ALL comments will be moved to the talk page, even one or two words....


Qualifications

Who can stand for admin? This does not apply to other permissions such as 'crat, CU, Oversight, etc which may have other criteria.

No edit requirement and no time requirement.

Anyone can stand for adminship. The community will judge for itself about contributors that don't have a lot of experience.

  1. Patstuart (talk) 20:25, 23 March 2008 (UTC) Community is smart enough to figure it out. Requirements are high enough that meatpuppetry + bureaucrat judgment should be enough to help decipher.
  2. --Ragesoss 20:54, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
  3. VanTucky 23:04, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
  4. Community can decide who is right and who is not. Let's not bar a great user because they don't have quite enough edits. Majorly (talk) 23:10, 23 March 2008 (UTC)
  5. There should be no formal requirement for this. The community can decide who is ready. However, individual users may have informal eligibility rules that guide their own views. Superm401 - Talk 02:16, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
  6. Make commons for everyone. The bureucrats can decide, which accounts does not belong to fair voters. Not the rules. --Aktron 17:20, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
  7. Why the heck do we need a limit here? Somebody with 50 edits is not going to pass anyway. -- Bryan (talk to me) 18:17, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
  8. --Maxim(talk) 20:13, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
  9. A person who wants 500 edits isn't going to change their own standards if editors with fewer than 200 edits or whatever cannot apply so the only thing I see coming from this is a reuced number of nominations. James086Talk | Email 08:31, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
  10. The power of the community should be absolute. -- Felipe Aira 11:18, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
  11. Fully agree with Majorly. If a great editor with few edits stands for admin, we don't want to stop him from succeeding just because he has too few edits. Otherwise the community will figure it out on its own. --Aqwis 13:05, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
