Finding Quotes candidates[edit]

Look for a quote in Wikipedia, Wikimedia, and on the Web that is related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine that you think is very good and would be suitable for use as a quote.

Nominating Quotes[edit]

  1. Click on the "Edit"-button for the "Current nominations" section.
  2. At the top of this page (above the other candidates) create a third-level header with the articles title and a wikilink to it, like this: === [[AUTHOR OF QUOTE]] ===
  3. Quotes should preferably include the name of the author, name of book or source where the quote appears, and the year that the quote was first made.
  4. Below this new line, add your reasons for nominating your quote and then sign your nomination with ~~~~.

Supporting and objecting[edit]

  • If you approve of a quote, write "Support" below the reason why this article was nominated, followed by your reasons for supporting it.
    • A nomination is considered a vote in support, so nominators don't need to add another vote to their nominations.
  • If you oppose a nomination, write "Oppose" below the list of supports, followed by the reasons for your objection. Where possible, objections should provide a specific rationale that can be addressed.
    • To withdraw an objection, strike it out (with <s>...</s>) rather than removing it.

So straightforward, so obvious.
