RulesEdit

StephenHead1

This section, Voting Rules, discusses an official policy of Wikiality.com. We treat it like we would treat a decree from Our Glorious Stephen himself. Because it is so rich in gut-issued, truth-filled wikiality, this policy on Featured Articles has wide acceptance among members of Wikiality.com and is considered a standard that all users should follow. By following these standards, we are working to create a reality where each user's truthiness reflects the truthiness of Stephen.

  1. Before a page can be nominated, it must first pass Wikiality:Sound Advice. Please post your page there for pre-nominating "vetting". New pages should stay on Peer Review for at least a week before being nominated.

    2. if not directly about Dr. Stephen T. Colbert, D.F.A., it must reflect "The Stephen Colbert Experience"
    3. must be funny (actually, its more imporant to be satirical, but that's a wordonista word and what we really want is somebody nailed that we can laugh at)

    2. An Article will be removed from nomination, if it receives five votes of "No"
    3. An Article that has been voted "Not Yet" will be left on the list until it either improves and is voted in, or degrades in quality, and is voted off.
    4. If your vote is "No", please give a brief explanation of your position. This page is designed for voting only. Please direct conversations to the associated "talk Page" for the specific article.
  9. Editing an Article
    1. Articles that are "Nominated" will be blocked for anon users.
    2. Articles that are "Featured" will be blocked from any edits for a period of one month, then an "Archive" version will be made as a sub-page of the main article so that it may be viewed in all its Featured glory for future generations of Wikiality.com editors.



Winning, Losing and ScoringEdit

  • An article will become featured if it gets 5 "Yes" votes.
  • An article will get sent to the loser's bin if it gets 5 "No" votes or has not received a sufficient amount of votes within 7 days of being nominated.
  • "Not Yet" votes do not count for or against the article. They are null votes used to straddle the fence until the article is fixed.
  • You may change your vote by using the <s></s> tag to encompass your old vote so that we can readily see change. BE WARNED: Do not change another person's vote or you WILL be banned.
  • Note: A "Yes" vote will not cancel out a "No" and vice versa. If five "No" votes are cast before 5 "Yes" votes then the article will not receive a featured status.

How To Vote Edit

  • Just write "+1" under "Yes", "No", or "Not Yet" followed by 2 of these "-", then 4 of these "~", with no spaces in between.
  • The "+1" notes your choice, and the "--~~~~" leaves your signature.

So, for those of you who still don't get it: "+1 --~~~~" under your choice. Without the quotes, dummy.


Trouble Voting? Edit

If you can't edit this page, and you are logged in, comment on the Talk:Main_Page, if there is a syscop around, they will come and help you.


If you tamper with anyone else's vote,
you will be banned!

Not YetEdit

Just a few things I noticed--WatchTVEatDonutDrinkBeer 20:55, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

  • It needs some pictures (I posted some on the talk page)
  • There's a red link
  • Not enough Baby Jesus, please see Acts of God
    • Update--WatchTVEatDonutDrinkBeer 18:47, 24 November 2008 (UTC)
      • there still doesn't seem to be enough Stephen
      • I also noticed that there is no definition for "Lion's Market" (at the link it says some Christian group came up with it to describe "God’s control over the economic systems")

Um... no mention of Barney Frank, the great homosexual conspiracy to destroy capitalism, and the all-powerful ACORN which is somehow behind it all? John "the fundamentals of our economy are strong" McCain? At the very least, talk about Nancy Pelosi and how she traitorously hindered the patriotic bailout bill... Bi 10:27, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

BearSharksEdit

nominated by --Sarlaccpit48 10:50am, July 24, 2008

I nominated this article because it is well constructed page and is well written. It is written to make Bearsharks appear to be real creatures describing physical and behavior characteristics as well as different species of Bearsharks. This page also includes original hand drawn depictions of Bearsharks.

Not YetEdit

Nice article which is nearly there. Great pics and captions, nice layout, good content, nice footnotes. But needs a reference to MC Rove, and more Wikiality tube links. Also the text under "Dealing with Applicants" could benefit from being broken into 2 or 3 paragraphs. --Careax 16:26, 13 January 2008 (UTC)
