Quickpolls were a trial of a system for making fast decisions about problematic users. They consisted of polls among Wikipedia regulars on issues that needed to be quickly resolved. It operated from March to June of 2004, although some action continued into July.
After mixed reactions in the 30-day review process this page fell into disuse. As seen on the talk page, there was much dissatisfaction with the process, and no agreement on what changes were needed to fix it.
A proposal to revive quickpolls was active in March, 2005. See Wikipedia:Bring back quickpolls.
