@Daniel Carrero Do you think it would be possible to highlight the date for votes that are a few days from ending? Also, could the links point to the actual vote page? —CodeCat 13:13, 10 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

How many days would you like? I'm thinking 5 days. I'll look into highlighting the dates later today, though that's probably a job for Lua and I'm still not very good with it. Anyway, the links are pointing to the actual vote pages now. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 14:09, 10 October 2015 (UTC)Reply
Done. Edit Template:votes/row if you would like to change the formatting of the highlighted votes, edit Template:votes/highlight if you would like to change the rules, like changing the number of days. On that note, I've used a kludge so that if you let a finished vote linger, it stays highlighted, but only for 10 days at most. Probably there are better ways of doing that, but it works for now. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 22:51, 10 October 2015 (UTC)Reply

User: stuff


Why is it "User:Smuconlaw for admin" instead of just "Smuconlaw for admin"? And if the first style is the one we want to follow, should "Tohru for deadmin" become "User:Tohru for deadmin"? -Xbony2 (talk) 21:11, 14 July 2016 (UTC)Reply

The votes have different title styles because they were created by different people, and we don't really have a rule that all votes must follow a certain pattern in the title. But of all the admin votes, apparently "Tohru for deadmin" is the only one without "User:" in the title. If you see the "Starting a new vote on this page" on WT:V, the placeholder title for an admin vote is "Wiktionary:Votes/sy-2016-07/User: for admin", which encourages using "User:". --Daniel Carrero (talk) 22:42, 14 July 2016 (UTC)Reply

How do I actually make my new vote show up in the list?


The documentation page urgently needs to explain this. Equinox 20:40, 21 July 2017 (UTC)Reply

@Equinox: I added that urgent explanation. Does it look good now? --Daniel Carrero (talk) 20:49, 21 July 2017 (UTC)Reply



@Fytcha, from where did you quote that statement, by the way? ·~ dictátor·mundꟾ 15:38, 9 March 2022 (UTC)Reply
