Inkipedia:Poll selection

From Inkipedia, the Splatoon wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Polls are select questions that are shown on the main page. These should be questions that are related to the Splatoon series and can be answered by anyone.

View poll suggestions from the Google form here.

Previous poll nominations can be found in the archives.

Moderation

All members of the Poll Selection Committee will moderate the votes on the poll selection. For each month there will be a person in charge (Judd). Their role involves tie-breaking, swapping the previous poll with the winning poll, and archiving the previous poll. Polls are swapped on the first day of every month. Members of the poll selection committee must be informed on how to do these tasks.

Rotation of S2 Icon Judd.png Judd
Months 1/7 Shahar
Months 2/8 Prinz the overlord
Months 3/9 FLAME1232
Months 4/10 Eminence
Months 5/11 Yawshi Fan
Months 6/12 Squid400

This list will be changed as people join or leave the committee.

Tasks of Judd

On the beginning of the month:

  1. In-case of a tie, decide which poll should be chosen and comment about the tie-breaking with reasoning as an option.
  2. Archive the current poll to Inkipedia:Polls with its order of the answers and not by most votes. Don't forget submission, date and image.
  3. Make the poll in Strawpoll.me.
  4. Put the newly created poll with fitting height x width, and image with link in Main Page/Poll.
  5. Archive the winning nomination to archives.

Nominations that stayed five voting periods will be removed and archived.

Nomination process

Polls can be proposed in the section below by members of the Poll Selection Committee, up to two pending proposals per member. If a member wants to submit another proposal, but two are already pending selection, they could retract one of their proposals and archive it. If a member re-submits a retracted proposal, voting must start as a blank slate for that proposal.

Proposals can be voted on once by each user. Nominations may stay up for up to five voting periods before they are removed. A poll may not be featured more than once a year.

On the first day of every month, the poll question with the highest difference of those in favor minus those who oppose will be featured. One poll will be featured at any time, comprising of the winner of the previous voting period.

Nominations can be made in the following format:

  • The merchandise page has been expanding recently and shows vast items that can be purchased from the Splatoon universe. It will also show some spotlight and might make editors fill the missing merch. It's also possible to ask which merchandise you got but I think there are too many categories with that. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 16:43, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Shouldn't we put OFFICIAL? Also I support as we have had vast improvements Prinz fanart.jpgQueenie the Overlord [Splatz]Prinz fanart.jpg 18:15, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
What do you mean by official? like the official merch? ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 19:16, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Yes thats what I mean. I've got a LOT of pins of splatoon characters but they're not official so i was wondering if that countsPrinz fanart.jpgQueenie the Overlord [Splatz]Prinz fanart.jpg 21:13, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • @Shahar, this poll has already been used. Eminence Chatter 13:35, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Err a poll can be used twice?-EMOPRIN'Z!Prinz.png(Talk) 14:15, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
      • It only says polls cannot be reused within a year, it doesn't say you can't reuse those over a year old. Yawshi Fan (talk) 14:18, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Oh you are right, I totally forgot about it. In retrospect, a poll may not be featured more than once a year so it is possible to have it again. I'll add another proposal soon. Shahar (talk) 15:14, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

  • I know some that might've started the Hero campaign and never finished it or haven't touched it at all so I'd add an option of 'None of the above' or 'I don't have a favorite'. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 19:16, 1 January 2021 (UTC)

  • I actually suggested the poll myself on the Google form. Prinz fanart.jpgQueenie the Overlord [Splatz]Prinz fanart.jpg 18:12, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I've got the manga but I haven't read it yet. I think this question is very specific as I believe those characters are not main and appear only at the first or two volumes. ShaharSig2.pngShaharSigtalk2.png 19:16, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • They feature a fair bit in the S1 arc and have a huge effect on the fanbase, Prinz fanart.jpgQueenie the Overlord [Splatz]Prinz fanart.jpg 21:12, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • The S4 actually appear throughout the series and are main supporting characters after the third volume. Eminence Chatter 12:23, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Many people may not have read the Splatoon Manga or may not know what it is. Since Inkipedia is mainly focused on the game, I don't think we should have a poll about the manga. Eminence Chatter 12:26, 2 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I agree with Shahar that it is pretty specific, although I would be on board if it were something like “What is your favorite team from the Splatoon manga?” However, I will withhold my judgement until this develops further.

  • It's something quite different from what the polls are, and so I'd like to give it a try. Yawshi Fan (talk) 02:59, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Again. same problem with the Octo Canyon Bosses. Some might not played the Octo Canyon so this can't be answer by anyone if it doesn't cover all the options. Shahar (talk) 10:26, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Now that I look back at the older polls, we didn't have a getaway option so I guess it's not mandatory to have a poll that can be answered by anyone. Shahar (talk) 17:56, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
      • It's fine if you want to start implementing it now. Yawshi Fan (talk) 03:42, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
  • I won't support this until the poll name becomes more precise and compact. Eminence Chatter 18:31, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
    • I don't think I can simplify it any further. These would you rather situations need details so people only have to fill in minimum blanks. I guess that's a challenge for these polls. Yawshi Fan (talk) 03:47, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
      • How about "What is your favorite Hero weapon?" Eminence Chatter 22:50, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
        • It would then become one of these polls we've done all the time, which is fine, but not what I was going for. I'm trying to blend in a tactical factor as well, because some hero weapons are significantly better than others. For example I would choose Slosher although my fav is Roller and I main Splatlings. Yawshi Fan (talk) 23:20, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
          • Then how about "Which Hero weapon is the best?" Eminence Chatter 23:25, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Not a big fan of the last answer/option; Could be "None" or "I don't have a favorite". As well as the the rephrase of "the best"; Maybe "favorite" or "most useful". Shahar (talk) 15:14, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
    • Yawshi, you could do as what is your FAVORITE hero weapon. Squid400 (talk) 16:34, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Pretty sure that's where Eleven left off before we were able to do this poll. We did it for the first game and a poll about the Splatfest was in-between its time period. Added rating sticker details so readers can know which physical copy they got. Shahar (talk) 16:42, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

  • Some people may not have ever used these weapons or not know what they are. Can we add an option like "Never used these weapons" or "What are these weapons?"
    • I think "I don't play Salmon Run" already covers that. Yawshi Fan (talk) 23:18, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
