The Club Penguin Wiki Council is a committee of users who bring up, discuss and vote on wiki issues or proposals on a regular basis. Discussions in the Council usually result in the change of policy for the wiki. The original council was created by Seahorseruler, who originally based it on a typical legislative body and was held on our IRC channel.

Guidelines[edit]

  • You must qualify to vote under the voting guidelines in order to vote in the council. All unauthorized votes will be removed.
  • The amount of time a topic will stay open for voting will be at the admins' discretion. A typical vote is open for about two weeks.
  • Topics which have a small vote differential (e.g. +1) may or may not pass. This will be discussed and decided among the administration.
  • Bureaucrats hold a special additional ability, called veto. This is enforced whenever over half of all present bureaucrats vote against a proposal - and the proposal is automatically discarded. There are currently two bureaucrats; both would have to vote against for this to happen.
  • Demotion votes for users do not belong here; they get their own demotion vote page.

OTRS (+5)[edit]

Often some interesting facts can be found out by asking CP support. If editor asks them, however, she has no way to source her findings, as copy-pasting mail body isn’t reliable or credible. I propose to create a system similar to Wikipedia’s Volunteer Response Team project, which would allow trusted editors to send e-mails to Club Penguin and store the conversations.

One difference from Wikipedia would be that our ticket system would have to be able to start a conversation, which by definition wouldn’t probably be a Ticket System any more.

Comments[edit]

  • How would this thing work? Would we need to create a new namespace to store these emails (even though email still sounds like a hard source to credit... I would just get facts/information from CP's site itself)? The Volunteer Response link doesn't explain anything to me; an explanation would be much appreciated. --Hat Pop Bunny Ears Rule! 12:13, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
    • It would be a separate system, acting as a read-only mailbox. Additionally, trusted volunteers could send e-mails from it to CP support. The responses could then be available through a new namespace (e.g. Ticket:125). CP site doesn’t have all the information we need and asking support could be a great way to find out more. —Lisured (会話) 13:12, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
