Welcome to...

Voting Center

The Voting Center

Welcome to the Voting Center or VC for short. Here you can submit proposals to create new articles or to delete, split, merge, or rename existing ones. Proposals that pass and aren't immediately dealt with can be added to the Project Board.

To view past proposals, check out the revision history of the Voting Center's talk page or those of our original voting pages, the Articles for Creation and Articles for Deletion.


  • To submit a proposal, complete one of the forms below and save it on this page's talk page. If you're proposing something relating to a page that exists already, place {{Voting}} at the top of any articles you are proposing to delete.
  • Proposals pass: (1) when eight users vote for, or (2) when six users vote for and zero users vote against.
  • Proposals fail: (1) when eight users vote against, or (2) when six users vote against and zero users (besides the original proposer) vote for.
  • If your proposal fails, you can resubmit it after a week.
  • To vote, click "[edit]" next to the option you want to vote for, and add # ~~~~. ( # tallies your vote, and ~~~~ is your signature.) If you want to add your reasoning too, vote like this: # reasoning here ~~~~.
    • You can vote for your own proposal. (The forms below have your vote filled in already.)
  • Staff members may vote just like any other member.
  • The staff reserves the right to remove proposals and the right to skip the voting process. They'll try to be reasonable about things, and if you want to discuss a decision, you can leave a message on a staff member's talk page or the AFC's talk page. Likewise, in special circumstances (like if a new character is revealed that has large story significance... we can dream right?), you can ask a staff member and they may let you skip the voting process.
  • Some items are challenging to make polls for and either have a multitude of options available or are more generally in need of some direction from community consensus. These can be placed under the "Discussion" category without poll options, although staff members may move these to the "Poll" category if a poll appears useful.
  • Any project that passes the Voting Center and isn't immediately dealt with should be moved to the Project Board.


  • If you propose merging articles or creating a new one, writing a rough draft of the new, merged version is helpful. You can write rough drafts on BIONICLEsector01:Sandbox or on your own sandbox page (for example, User:Dorek's sandbox is at User:Dorek/Sandbox).
  • When users vote against proposals, they often give reasons why. If your proposal fails, retrying every week won't get you anywhere unless you address other users' feedback. On the other side of things, if you vote against a proposal, it's helpful to give your reasons why, especially if they are different from the reasons others have mentioned.

Image Discussion

For replacing images in an articles' infoboxes. This mainly applies to characters, but if another articles' infobox is in dispute, it can be discussed here too.

In many instances a vote won't be necessary and the staff may pass it. If there is significant debate, then a vote will still be held.
