Hi everyone, as discussed in One Piece Wiki talk:Guidebook/Blogs and Chat, we will have to make and vote on blog rules since the previous forum only made one rule, that the wiki must contain blogs related to the wiki and the manga itself. Nothing more. So please, suggest blog rules which will all be voted on after discussion. Thanks.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  11:41, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Suggestions

I'd say no blog needs to be deleted unless it's obviously a troll/spam or if it's gettin outta hand just lock it :/--Roranoa zoro Talk|||12:04,10/27/2013

I agree.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  12:23, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

I say no to power level blogs. Questions like "who is stronger" or "who would win in a fight" produce non constructive discussions which end up in pointless arguements. However, we should be thorough about the width, that the term "power level" includes. Vaztalk 12:28,10/27/2013

There CAN and HAVE been great power lvl blogs with interesting arguments so no point sayin' flat out no to those IMO but if the blog gets outta hand delete/lock it.--Roranoa zoro Talk|||12:51,10/27/2013

^ That's true. We could make a lock template so that if a blog gets out of hand, an admin is notified to lock it.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  13:41, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

That sounds good since some of them have interesting ideas that don't provoke arguments. Videogamep Talk 16:55, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

The main rules I think we need are: got to be related to One Piece, minimum amount of content (so not just two or three lines), and no abuse/insults. Blogs are meant to be discussed, surely, so unless the argument gets out of hand it's not a problem. It's recommended to throw away socks after a year 17:04, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Most blogs about power levels and bounties do provoke arguments or are repetitive. Those kinds of blogs should be at least regulated, if not banned. And Sabo blogs are guaranteed to provoke arguments since that is probably the most contested topic in One Piece. Videogamep Talk 20:23, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

There is absolutely zero evidence that power level blogs lead to arguments. There may be an argument on one or two of them but not on every single one of them like everybody implies. I would like the rule that blogs have to be about One Piece gone but I know that won't happen. The "rule" about Sabo blogs will not be on any vote since that was a full blown lie created by DP when he randomly added it the first time. SeaTerror (talk) 20:55, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Some power level blogs do like "who is the strongest Straw Hat". Those will just lead to people making lists and arguing about them. I agree with the Sabo rule regardless of it's source since that subject is always going to lead to arguments and it is not original. Look how many blogs come up when you search for Sabo in blogs. This isn't even counting the blogs that have been deleted. Videogamep Talk 23:02, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

Prove that there will always be arguments on power level blogs. Sabo is a bad rule and should not exist. Only you and DP will want it. Also if you actually looked at the results you would see that some of those blogs only mentioned him and not as the main point of interest. SeaTerror (talk) 23:20, October 27, 2013 (UTC)

If there isn't a clear rule about power level blogs, then it will be difficult to determine, when the discussion has gone out of hand or is repetitive. Plus, it will end up being on an admin's hand to delete or lock it, which is what we are trying to avoid here in the first place. (and don't tell me that there's gonna be a democratic decision every time a lock is about to be determined) Vaztalk 02:14,10/28/2013

I agree; maybe we could allow them with an admin's permission to filter out the argument provoking ones. And ST we should poll the Sabo rule; if you are right, it won't pass and if DP and I are it will. Videogamep Talk 02:32, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I don't see a problem with a sabo blog. I've seen other speculative blogs and they haven't caused much disruption. So what's the difference? Lelouch Di Britannia Talk Page  03:27, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Sabo's mortality, power levels, and next member blogs, I have found, are the most non-constructive blog topics, with the first two going as far as being the two most volatile topics and all of them are an all-you-can-eat buffet for trolls. An activity feed full of vulgar blog comments just makes everything look bad. Flame wars lead to newer users making inaccurate judgments about this wiki, which we don't want. DancePowderer Talk 03:54, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I love how you have yet to provide any proof for any of your claims. SeaTerror (talk) 05:26, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I forgot to mention that we'll have to go over everything on the original forum again since there is only technically one current blog rule. I still say the rule about non OP related blogs should be debated again. SeaTerror (talk) 09:39, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

^^^^ and dont tell me this forum's gonna last for 41 days until a poll comes up ... why not just start a poll?... we all know it'll be decided by a poll :|--Roranoa zoro Talk|||09:47,10/28/2013

Nah, that rule is fine, nobody wants unrelated blogs anyway. Now, about power level and sabo blogs, who said that if you don't like them, the rest of the wiki doesn't either? Blogs are there to have fun and all. By your logic we should disable blogs since you never know which one will cause a war and which one won't. And if one blog does cause a war, you have all the power to lock the blog and delete the offensive comments. The fact that you don't like a specific type of blogs doesn't mean that you should delete them. I don't like some blogs either, lets delete them!  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  09:49, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

People never even discussed why non related blogs would be bad. People break the rule anyway including you Staw. Also going to poll right away would be moronic since we have to discuss what should be polled first. SeaTerror (talk) 09:59, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

The rules that will be polled anyway are

  • Sabo Blogs
  • Powah Level Blogs
  • New Straw Hat Members blogs
  • Bounties blogs
  • DF blogs
  • unrelated blogs (since we're redoing them let's redo everything)
  • images in blog comments

Whoever has something else to suggest, please do so. If no suggestions are made, I'll make a test poll.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  10:51, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Let me make something abundantly clear, my wanting to disallow Sabo's mortality blogs has nothing to do with my personal opinion on the matter. They are simply one of the topics I have seen get out of hand. That being said, the rule about Sabo should be "Sabo's mortality, since that's the only aspect that gets out of hand. If someone wanted to do a comparison between Sabo and Doflamingo, for instance, that would be fine. Unrelated blogs are just asking for trouble since that technically can allow almost anything to be put on a blog. For all we know, we'll see a fight prediction between Ichigo Kurosaki and Kakashi Hatake on here and have to allow it. That rule is simply to keep the content in line.DancePowderer Talk 14:16, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Agree with DP here. However, rules aside, I'm considered about the way the blogs get deleted. Maybe there should be some room for approval there. I don't know how such a thing could be achieved in accordance to the wiki's rules. Maybe it could be something like a candidate for deletion tag, which has to be confirmed or approved by at least 3 regular(3 months/300 edits) users. What do you think?Vaztalk 14:36,10/28/2013

Well, unrelated blogs shouldn't be allowed on the wiki because of many reasons. And there are two more rules I want to suggest. First one is advertising, eg if somebody makes a wiki or an image or anything else and advertises it here. I believe that this kind of blogs do nothing but harm the wiki and should be deleted. Another rules I want to suggest is not to allow unoriginal blogs. And by unoriginal, I don't mean blogs about topics that have been discussed many times, i mean blogs whose content has been copied by another blog or another wiki or even another site. Those blogs are pretty rare but when we get one, we surely should delete it. Ah and of course I think that deleting spam and vandalism blogs or blogs with very few words in common sense but I just want to make sure that it has been mentioned in the forum as a rule because some people might complain later *cough*ST*cough*. Moving on to vaz's suggestion, I believe that as long as we have stable rules, it should be up to admin to delete/lock a blog or not. Despite that, I would like to bring up again the idea of making a lock template to be used in blogs when they get out of hand, in case an admin doesn't notice them (which is highly uncommon but still, admins have lives too)  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:41, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

http://onepiece.wikia.com/wiki/User_blog:FutureCyborg18/Baroque_Works_%28Power_Levels%29

DP just deleted yet another power level blog while he knows perfectly well that there are no rules saying he can't do that.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  18:15, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

The old rules still apply, since we haven't voted on new ones. Thus, he is entitled to do that.Vaztalk 18:23,10/28/2013

Next time check the rules before you tattle, and maybe you won't look like you don't know what you're talking about.DancePowderer Talk 18:24, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Those "old rules" don't exist. They were never voted on. No blogs should be deleted until we get real rules and not rules anyone added without discussion and poll.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  18:30, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

How about we just allow Power Level blogs and let any admin lock comments if they get out of hand based on their discretion? I trust the admins to know when things do get out of hand/troll-y. I don't think a template is necessary for it though, since this judgement should be left to admins, and not the average user.

I do however agree with DP that blogs about if Sabo is dead or not and/or "____ is the next SH" shouldn't be allowed. Those blogs are rarely intelligently written. But the main reason I don't think those should be allowed is because every time one pops up, veteran users just dismiss it and they aren't nice about it to the blogger, who is typically a new user. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 19:31, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

We should not allow whether Sabo is dead or who will be the next Straw Hat member blogs, because they are often terrible and offer absolutely nothing interesting to this community. Also, they are incredibly annoying, and even the most patient person have his/her limits.

Same thing go for power level blogs. They are often written by morons, and often have only a few stupid lines that contribute absolutely nothing intelligent to the topic of the strength of characters. Also, as other users stated, is a lovely way to start a flame war in less than five seconds.

However, I think we shouldn't bring out our pitchforks and torches every time there's a power level blog. If the blog is actually well written, interesting, prompt intelligent conversations, then it should be allowed. However, if the conversations degrade to insults, lock it.

I have several more thoughts on what rules we should have, and what rules we most definitely should not have, but for now, I'll keep quite about it :P  Jademing  Talk   19:58, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

I love how people like you Just, have repeatedly made blanket claims without any evidence to back it up. SeaTerror (talk) 20:01, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Kinda hard to provide evidence if all of the "Sabo is alive!!!!", "next straw hat member!!!!" and "who is strong?????" blogs are deleted right away, ST. Be logical, mate.  Jademing  Talk   20:05, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Not all of them have been deleted plus they never should have been deleted in the first place since it was never a rule. So I'm calling plain BS on any of these claims since you people keep repeatedly not providing evidence. Plus everybody who has been making the claim has been using absolutes.SeaTerror (talk) 20:10, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

The only way for us to provide evidence is to dig through old blogs and read all of them to see if they prove our case which would be boring and way too time consuming. And you haven't provided any evidence to refute our arguments either. Videogamep Talk 20:37, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Burden of proof has always fallen on the person making the claims. Either way there have been multiple fallacies coming from your side so your arguments have already been proven to be weaker. SeaTerror (talk) 20:52, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

What fallacies are you referring to? You still have to provide some evidence for your side or you don't even have an argument. Just to be clear, my position is that most power level blogs cause flame wars, not all. Videogamep Talk 20:59, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

If you mean fallacies by lack of evidence, then by your logic, your argument is also weak and have multiple fallacies, as you did not provide any evidence either.  Jademing  Talk   21:14, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fallacy_of_composition this is the major one. Also for our side it wouldn't be possible since DP deleted every single one though from the ones that survived for a tiny bit there were no actual arguments. The burden of proof falls on your side for making the claim that every power level blog/sabo blog/straw hat blog = arguments no matter what. Plus if you found really old ones it wouldn't even count since most of the users from the old ones don't even blog anymore or come to the site anymore. SeaTerror (talk) 21:21, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

That is why I am saying that many, not all, power level blogs will provoke arguments. Since it doesn't seem like this is going anywhere why don't we just make a poll for the new rules so we can have some firmly set blog rules as soon as possible. Videogamep Talk 21:47, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Sabo and Straw Hat shouldn't even be on the poll. SeaTerror (talk) 22:01, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

Agreed wth Vid. This should be a suggestion's section. Everyone should just write the rules they suggest, and then they should be voted on. Those who are highly debated can then be discussed upon. There is no point arguing among suggestions, while they actually get lost in a crowd of words (how poetic is that?!). If we go on like this, I see history repeating itself.Vaztalk 22:04,10/28/2013

So if no one else objects I'll make a test poll for power level blogs. Videogamep Talk 22:06, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

No. This is exactly what ruined the last rules discussion. There should be one poll for all the rules suggested, with an agree/disagree choise underneath each one.Vaztalk 22:19,10/28/2013

Good. Please also add: One piece or community related content rule, and minimum length rule.Vaztalk 22:42,10/28/2013

No it is bad. Only one person wanted that stupid bounty one. SeaTerror (talk) 22:55, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

The community related content rule was already polled on the previous forum. Videogamep Talk 00:45, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Doesn't matter. More than one person said to do it again. SeaTerror (talk) 00:49, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Added it. Videogamep Talk 01:30, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

I still don't see why we have to revote on the stuff from before.DancePowderer Talk 01:34, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

We really don't but it will keep people from contesting them in the future. Videogamep Talk 01:47, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

I've removed the part about blogs being related to OP or the Wiki, since that was actually voted on in the last forum. It was an overwhelming majority (13-1) and there is no need to re-poll something that is A) Already a rule that was chosen by the community. B) Clearly going to have the same result if it is re-polled. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 06:20, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I just added it because I got tired of arguing. Videogamep Talk 06:24, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Added a section 'bout DFs--Roranoa zoro Talk|||06:45,10/29/2013

Removed. Wasn't suggested anywhere. Also if you're going to remove the One Piece related one when more than one person wanted it on then Bounties is getting removed because only one person wanted it. SeaTerror (talk) 06:52, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Let's just be clear since we are redoing this entire rule thing.--Roranoa zoro Talk|||07:00,10/29/2013

It was never a rule so not how it works. Removed again. SeaTerror (talk) 07:10, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

dude -_-' .. ok I'll suggest it here, there should be an option if blogs 'bout DFs should be allowed.--Roranoa zoro Talk|||07:15,10/29/2013

That doesn't even make any sense and is too broad. Plus you are the only one who suggested it. SeaTerror (talk) 07:43, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

Let's just poll everything that's been proposed so no one has any complaints at the end and we don't have to do this again. Videogamep Talk 15:54, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

The under conditions option will get us nowhere. We should remove it.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  16:09, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

It will help with things like power level blogs, where not all should be deleted but many should. Maybe we could allow them with an admin's permission. Videogamep Talk 22:44, October 29, 2013 (UTC)

@Staw: The "under conditions" has a point. Those rules, where the "under conditions" options gets the more votes, will be further discussed upon.Vaztalk 10:42,10/30/2013

As long as we have rules, it should be completely up to admin.  Staw-Hat Luffy  Talk  14:01, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Nop, what I mean is, that if the "under conditions" are more than the "yes" or "no", then that certain rule won't apply, but it will be further discusses and rephrased.Vaztalk 14:12,10/30/2013

Poll should not have opened since it was still in discussion. Plus if you added what Rora said then the non OP related should have been on the poll too. SeaTerror (talk) 19:09, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

Now the poll is closed since we have rules against this. Everything must be agreed upon first. SeaTerror (talk) 19:22, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

If we agree upon them, then why vote on them? If you mean we have to agree if they will be on the poll, then this won't happen, cause those who would vote "yes" will say put them on poll, and those woho would vote "no" will say don't put them. And so this goes on forever...Vaztalk 20:09,10/30/2013

The discussion didn't seem to be going anywhere and it seemed ready to be polled. The non OP related rule shouldn't be there since it was already polled and agreed on and no one else was in favor of adding it to the poll. Videogamep Talk 21:16, October 30, 2013 (UTC)

There was also the under conditions being discussed. Also if you think no one else was in favor or adding it then you should read the poll. Its ridiculous to have put up the bounty one when only one person wanted it on the poll yet leave the non-OP related blog option off when 2 people wanted it on the poll. SeaTerror (talk) 00:50, October 31, 2013 (UTC)

They never mentioned it in the discussion and like I said before, it was already decided on. Videogamep Talk 01:53, October 31, 2013 (UTC)

I think you need to read the discussion again then. SeaTerror (talk) 03:19, October 31, 2013 (UTC)

Vid, ST is right, it was mentioned several times. Also, let's open the poll or else I see this getting bumped repetedly. And while we wait there are no basic rules and blogs are all allowed.Vaztalk 08:11,10/31/2013

Okay, unless anyone wants to add something else to the poll we should open it before this forum is forgotten. Videogamep Talk 02:40, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

I already said what needs to be added. SeaTerror (talk) 08:00, November 1, 2013 (UTC)

Post poll discussion

So it seems that most of the rules have been set. Those that remain to be sorted out are:

  • Power level blogs
  • Future bounties blogs
  • Not related to One Piece or the wiki blogs.

I suppose the other rules can be set in stone ASAP. Here, we can discuss about the remaining three.Vaztalk 00:04,11/16/2013

i think that if people present reasoning and logic when making a power level and future bounty blog then i think they are acceptable, also if a blog is in no way related to OP, the wiki, wikis in general or manga in general then it definitely should be deleted, if you want to tell us about yourself or something then you can use your profile--Quoth The Raven "Nevermore" 00:10, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

I think the condition for all three should be with permission from an admin. I've seen some power level blogs that were well thought out and not just starting a flame war. AYET actually made a bounty blog recently that included no numbers and was very well thought out. As for blogs unrelated to the wiki, I only supported under certain conditions because someone (I don't remember who) made a personal blog some time ago with permission from an admin and that didn't cause any problems. Videogamep Talk 01:08, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

The ties for Future Bounties and Non-OP blogs mean that they should be re-polled or extended. Unless there's any important discussion that needs to take place now before they are opened again.

As for Power Level Blogs, we decided they are allowed "under certain conditions", so now we must decide what that means. I stand by what I said on the poll that we should just allow them and if the comments do turn into a flame war on a blog, an admin should just lock the blog. I also just thought of the idea that we could make up a quick template that goes on any power level blog to remind commenters that flame wars are not ok on blogs. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 06:20, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

We should still have a screening system since admins will do that for a blog anyway and some power level blogs are pointless and likely to provoke arguments. Videogamep Talk 06:48, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

Having to get permission from an admin just to make a blog is stupid. SeaTerror (talk) 10:11, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

Power level blogs: I just say no to them. Those blogs, no matter how well written or clever or inspired they are, it's still just a matter of one personal opinion against another, which ends up in pointless "is not-is too" comments or, at best, in someone trying to explain a shounen manga through the laws of physics in order to prove a point. Even if there is no actual flame war in it, a power level blog is as non-constructive as hell.

Future Bounty blogs: I don't see why these should not be allowed. Ayet's latest blog is a brilliant example of how good and entertaining such a blog can be. Besides, if the content is just number spouting, then it will probably get ignored by the majority of the users, so no harm done.

Unrelated blogs: I chose under conditions on this one. If it is about personal issues or shameless advertizing, then it's a no. But if it's, for example, some fan-art or some interesting story about characters not related to One Piece, then why not?Vaztalk 11:35,11/16/2013

poll is open for two more days, so lets table this discussion for now--Quoth The Raven "Nevermore" 18:45, November 16, 2013 (UTC)

Closed again.It's stupid to open all the sections for voting when 2 are tied,make a new one for the tied ones alone.--Roa[T]{MH,R!,-10:02,11/17/2013-}
alright fine, why dont we go back to the poll decision from when it closed the first time and go back to discussing
  • Power level blogs
  • Future bounties blogs
  • Not related to One Piece or the wiki blogs.

--Quoth The Raven "Nevermore" 17:35, November 17, 2013 (UTC)

Since it had to be closed again we should keep Nova and MoM's current votes for those blogs but extend it for another 3 days after it reopens. SeaTerror (talk) 01:07, November 18, 2013 (UTC)

I say those votes should be removed and the poll should stay closed. Deadlines are there for a reason, we can't just bend rules because we are bored to discuss or make another poll.Vaztalk 11:38,11/19/2013

So you want the poll to have a permanent tie? SeaTerror (talk) 11:43, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

Nop. I want to discuss it further and then repoll it. That way, some people may change their mind via argument exchange or some other could feel like joining the discussion and participate in the voting process.Vaztalk 14:12,11/19/2013

I don't think you get the point of this discussion. SeaTerror (talk) 19:00, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

We should just extend the poll since that's what we do when there's a tie. Videogamep Talk 21:46, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

No. Only the tied options get extended. SeaTerror (talk) 03:42, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, that's what I meant. Videogamep Talk 05:47, November 21, 2013 (UTC)

Since the ties have been resolved, we should discuss the rules for power level blogs now. As I said before, we should require people to get an admin's permission before they make one so we don't get poorly thought out blogs that will just provoke flame wars. Videogamep Talk 02:55, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

The poll never finished. Things were still being discussed so the poll never reopened. SeaTerror (talk) 07:55, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

No one was posting anything so I reopened the poll a few days ago. Videogamep Talk 17:09, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

Your fault for not stating it. I said if we did it again then we would need to reextend the vote. So the poll never actually reopened. SeaTerror (talk) 21:07, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

I reopened it because no one was discussing it and it didn't seem like there was anything to discuss. Regardless, the ties are resolved. Videogamep Talk 21:34, November 25, 2013 (UTC)

Nope, no ties have been resolved since you never said you reopened it. SeaTerror (talk) 02:16, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

Why does it matter? It was reopened and the only person who voted was me when I changed my vote? Videogamep Talk 02:34, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

It matters because it was closed since MoM had edited the other polls too. Nobody knew it had been reopened because you said nothing about it. Other people could have voted. So it was never reopened and your vote change is null and void. SeaTerror (talk) 04:42, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, then I'll re-reopen it. Videogamep Talk 08:26, November 26, 2013 (UTC)

Now that the poll's closed again and the ties have been resolved, let's discuss the rules for power level blogs. Videogamep Talk 16:34, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

The rule is they are allowed now. SeaTerror (talk) 23:30, November 28, 2013 (UTC)

Look at the poll again, the result is they are allowed under certain conditions which means we need to discuss what those conditions are. Videogamep Talk 01:15, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

Well, those who voted for the "under conditions" option, should come now and state the conditions under which a power level blog should or should not be allowed.Vaztalk 01:23,11/29/2013

I think people should get permission from an admin beforehand to weed out blogs that are poorly thought out or will obviously lead to a flame war (and no ST I don't have any hard evidence aside from common sense that blogs like that can lead to flame wars). Videogamep Talk 01:29, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

We will have to vote on each different "condition" now then. Also your common sense is made up since it just doesn't happen like what everybody who voted no implied. SeaTerror (talk) 06:13, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

We don't need to have multiple conditions, just something like what I suggested above. Videogamep Talk 06:18, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

I completely disagree with it so yeah it would need a vote. I bet I'm not the only one who thinks it is stupid having to get permission to make a blog. SeaTerror (talk) 06:32, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, then I'll make a poll and we'll see. Videogamep Talk 20:06, November 29, 2013 (UTC)

This is moronic. People need to make other suggestions first before any poll can be made. SeaTerror (talk) 01:41, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

The poll isn't open yet so people are free to make suggestions. I just included my suggestion because no one else has posted any other conditions. Videogamep Talk 05:40, November 30, 2013 (UTC)

Since no one has made any other suggestions, I'll open the poll. Videogamep Talk 17:32, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

I posted a condition at the top of this section, in the last poll, and in the discussion before the last poll, though that's been ignored for this poll... JustSomeDude...  Talk | 19:48, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry, I didn't see that; I'll change the poll. Videogamep Talk 21:20, December 1, 2013 (UTC)

Done, any other ideas to add to the poll? Videogamep Talk

Yes. Permit them all and let it to the admin's discretion if he will allow it or not, judging according to content and quality of comments. Vaztalk 20:45,12/2/2013

Don't admins already do that? Videogamep Talk 22:23, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Well ,yeah but it's the only rule that makes sense. After all, it is what many of the users proposed, more or less, on the original poll. Stupid char Vs char blogs or flaming comment wars are the reasons why power lvl blogs were forbidden in the first place. If those don't exists then the blog should be fine. And i trust the admins to judge correctly in both occasions. So, i still think what i said above is valid. Up to you if you want to poll it though, I don't really care. Vaztalk 22:38,12/2/2013

It doesn't really seem like we need a poll now. We just need an admin to unlock the page with the blog rules so we can update them and someone should make the template Just suggested. I would but I don't know how to make a template like that. Videogamep Talk 23:33, December 2, 2013 (UTC)

Nope. We definitely need a poll. DP has shown himself to be too bias when deleting blogs. SeaTerror (talk) 01:54, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

How exactly would a poll solve that? We would be polling the rules that I listed above and were agreed on already and that would just make this forum last even longer. We should only do a poll if an admin actively ignores the agreed upon rules, and DP hasn't deleted any blogs that weren't in violation of the rules listed here. Videogamep Talk 03:03, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Even though it's my idea, the template is stupid and not needed. All I want on the poll is the option for any PL blogs to be allowed, and instead of deleting them admins can just lock comments if the comments get out of hand (And that's from the perspective of an ADMIN, not regular users).

Also, any poll times should be rounded to the nearest hour (ex: Start 12:45, End 13:00) so we don't have to keep track of weird times. That's in the Poll Rules. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 04:03, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, I'll remember that next time. And I updated the blog rules with everything decided on here. Videogamep Talk 04:35, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

Nope. Nothing was decided on for it since the vote was closed. So there are still no rules for the power blog rules. SeaTerror (talk) 11:37, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

A poll isn't needed if there is only one person disagreeing. Videogamep Talk 15:38, December 3, 2013 (UTC)

The poll you closed says otherwise. SeaTerror (talk) 01:44, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I made that poll when I only knew the opinions of you and me. Now that other users have posted and there is only one person disagreeing a poll isn't needed and would just make this take even longer. Videogamep Talk 02:59, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

There were also the other suggestions. Plus what you just added to the actual rules which weren't voted on either. SeaTerror (talk) 03:07, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

"The poll you closed says otherwise." SeaTerror (talk) 04:01, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

The poll below says that I was the only one agreeing with a suggestion that I have since dropped. You are the only one disagreeing with the current rules that are different from what I proposed. And when I say posted I mean posted in the discussion. Videogamep Talk 04:13, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Since you opened that poll it means you have to open one for every suggestion since you were the only one who wanted that suggestion yet opened it anyway. SeaTerror (talk) 04:31, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I didn't know what other people thought because you were the only person who posted in the discussion. Do you even disagree with the current rule for power level blogs? Videogamep Talk 05:33, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

That isn't a current rule because it was never voted on. Plus by your own logic that means it should have been polled. Also they never should be deleted but only locked and obviously those would have to be the extreme situations that never happen anyway. SeaTerror (talk) 06:02, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

If you really want to poll the suggested rules then make the poll. Like I said before, the sooner we have solid blog rules, the better. Videogamep Talk 06:56, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

You have to make the poll since you were the one who wanted it in the first place and also made it. You also removed the other suggestion. SeaTerror (talk) 09:52, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

Where does it say anywhere that I have to make it? You are the one who wants a poll so badly so either make it or stop arguing. Videogamep Talk 17:38, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I don't even agree with the current "rule". I have maintained this entire time that if power level blogs get out of hand, that they should be locked to additional comments, and they should never be deleted. Let's just poll it so that we can bring this to an end easier. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 17:51, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

I changed it back just now until we poll it. What do you think of this poll? Videogamep Talk 22:15, December 4, 2013 (UTC)

It's broken. Also there needs to be a neither option on the last poll or else it should be reworded. SeaTerror (talk) 03:02, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Done, I forgot to add the }} at the end before. Videogamep Talk 03:35, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Any other conditions/changes for the poll or should I open it? Videogamep Talk 05:02, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Just realized that out of hand will be very subjective. Also might as well add the one Just suggested that you removed. SeaTerror (talk) 06:36, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Out of hand should probably be left up to the admin's discretion. Which one do you mean? Videogamep Talk 06:58, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

So in other words since DP is so bias that would be all of them. The one that Just said. SeaTerror (talk) 09:47, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

Do you mean the rule about the template? If an admin abuses their power about this, we'll address it when it happens but for now let's trust that the admins will do what they are supposed to. Videogamep Talk 17:23, December 5, 2013 (UTC)

There is no template rule. Plus we already know we can't trust DP for that since he always deleted those blogs. SeaTerror (talk) 00:26, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

Just suggested a rule about adding a template to power level blogs which is what I thought you were referring to. Could you specify which rule you want me to add (or you could add it). DP always deleted those blogs because he thought they were against the rules. That doesn't mean he is untrustworthy. Videogamep Talk 01:30, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

You called it a rule. It isn't a rule since it is only a suggestion. Also DP deleted them because he could and not because they were against any rules since we never had a rule for it. SeaTerror (talk) 15:38, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry I was unclear about what I meant. DP isn't the only admin on this wiki and IF he abuses his power (which I doubt) we will address it when it happens. We should get some rules before we say people will break them. Videogamep Talk 16:28, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

The template idea sucks, as it's only a preventative measure, and I guarantee anyone who's new enough to post a power level blog won't know how to add it. I don't want to make more work for the admins just to add a silly preventative measure, especially when the only thing at stake is the locking of the comments section.

I trust DP like I trust all the admins here. If after reading the comments section of a blog, he deems the comments discussion to be "out of hand", then it probably is. And if anyone has a serious problem with that, there are other admins who can be consulted. I would like to state that any decision on this matter should be left to Admins and admins alone. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 17:11, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

I agree that we should trust the admins but we still need some rules for the rule page. Should I open the poll now or should I add something? Videogamep Talk 22:55, December 6, 2013 (UTC)

The other admins will let any admin do what they want. To say only admins should be allowed to make the decision is asinine. SeaTerror (talk) 09:12, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

The admins aren't out to get us so if that's the only argument you have left, I'll open the poll. Videogamep Talk 17:05, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

Open the poll for what? As I said it would be subjective. SeaTerror (talk) 22:45, December 7, 2013 (UTC)

We should just leave the definition of "out of hand" to the admins' discretion. It is fairly obvious when an argument gets out of hand and we don't need to vote on every small detail for the rules to be effective. Videogamep Talk 00:34, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

You'll now have to prove that it is obvious. Plus two people arguing about something on a blog doesn't mean it should be locked when others aren't doing it. SeaTerror (talk) 00:37, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Out of hand is when an argument turns into a flame war. I opened the poll since this is going nowhere. Videogamep Talk 00:39, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Two people having a flame war doesn't mean the blog should be ruined for others. Also I thought that you wanted to add the template suggestion. SeaTerror (talk) 00:52, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

I didn't, I thought you wanted it and since Just doesn't want it, we don't really need it. And I agree about not ruining the blog for everyone, which is why I voted in favor of locking them instead of deleting them. Videogamep Talk 00:58, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

You missed the point. If its only 2 people then those people should be warned or their comments deleted instead of having the entire blog locked. SeaTerror (talk) 01:04, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

They might not listen and they can still make more comments. If people know that flame wars will get a blog locked, they might be less likely to get caught up in them. Videogamep Talk 01:12, December 8, 2013 (UTC)

Post Poll Discussion

The poll is now closed. Blogs comparing the strengths of two characters will not be allowed and blogs that get out of hand will be locked. Videogamep Talk 02:09, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, that's what I meant. I'll rephrase the rule on the page. Videogamep Talk 16:49, December 21, 2013 (UTC)
