Portal:Alien/Vote

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Each month a selected article of the month will be picked using this page. The winning article, list and picture will then be posted on the Alien Portal for one month. Also the corresponding template can be added to the article's discussion page, see templates for more information. This is specifically for Alien related topics which are at a good status. The article can not be a stub or being worked on at the open tasks page. Any registered user can nominate an article and can vote for any one of the nominated articles. Every Monday, the votes are tallied. For help please see the Alien WikiProject.

Voting[edit]

Any registered user is encouraged to vote so long as you abide by the policies of Wikipedia, specifically Wikipedia:Sockpuppets.

Please add only support votes. Opposing votes will not affect the result, as the winner is simply the one with the most support votes (see Approval voting).

To vote for a nomination, edit the nomination and add the following to the bottom of the Support section:

  1. ~~~~

This adds your username and a time stamp to the numbered list item. The vote will look like this:

  1. Username 11:00, 21 Feb 2006 (UTC)

If you wish to withdraw your vote, do not remove your vote; instead, add an asterisk and strike-through tags to your vote as shown: #* <s>[[User:Username|Username]] 11:00, 21 Feb 2006 (UTC)</s> This allows Wikipedia to correctly calculate the remaining votes and will appear like this:

  1. Username 8:00, 21 Feb 2006 (UTC)
  2. Username 2:00, 22 Feb 2006 (UTC)

Ties[edit]

In case of a tie, voting will be extended for 24 hours. If there is still a tie, the candidate that was nominated first wins. During the extended voting period the old selected article should still be active.

No nominations[edit]

If no articles are selected to be a selected article then the Alien Portal will go through a cycle of good articles as seen below.
