The Club Penguin Fanon Wiki Council is a legislation of users that discuss and vote on current topics and proposals. Archived topics go here, no matter the outcome.

Modeled after the CPW and Shops' Councils.

Guidelines[edit]

  • Any users that qualify according to our Voting Policy may vote in all topics presented in the council. Users that don't qualify to vote may still give their opinion in the comments section.
  • Any user that qualifies to vote is allowed to open a council topic, though nonsense topics may be discarded without notification.
  • The amount of time a topic will stay open for voting will be at the admins' discretion. A typical vote is open for about two weeks.
  • Controversial topics which have a small vote differential (e.g. +1) may or may not pass. This will be discussed and decided among the administration.
  • Demotion votes for users do not belong here; they get their own demotion vote page.
  • We ask that all users who vote "neutral" state why they voted neutral, rather than choosing a side "For" or "Against". Neutral votes without an explanation will be removed.

The administration holds a special ability, called veto. When half of the present (active/partially active) administration votes against a proposal (if they have good reason for doing so), it will automatically be discarded, or vetoed.

Topics[edit]

Nullify the Country Policy until March 29th (First CP Memorial Act) (-3)[edit]

Retrospective to March 29, the end of Club Penguin, we should nullify the Country Policy so that everyone (even users with countries) can use it! What do you think?. What do you guys think? This would mean a rule change recommended by some users: "If a country page is LQA, the page will be deleted." as well as "Please, try to keep country making to a minimum."Give your ideas!Drunk science.gif I FEEL GR8 M8 MLG LOL.

Comments[edit]

  • The only difference is I want this to be done permanently. --Penstubal (Talk) (Edits) 19:46, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I feel like you might have added the "CP Memorial Act" on there just to get sympathy for the vote, since in reality people creating their own countries has nothing to do with CP. If we really wanted to memorialize Club Penguin, we'd all be editing CP-related articles, since there are plenty of those, and a lot that are incomplete as well. Not sure how I feel about the proposal yet, but I think that improving CP articles would be a better way to memorialize it than people making countries. CKSysop/BOBmaster? 19:55, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • The actual reason why I memorialized this is because this starts on March 29th, when CPI launches and CP shuts down.--Drunk science.gif I FEEL GR8 M8 MLG LOL. Wanna Chat? -Mcdonalds394 2016.png 21:04, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
  • This doesn't have anything to do with CP...are you saying you want to make a country? Because you can just ask for the approval of two or more administrators rather than nullifying a whole policy. Plus, I think we have nearly enough countries in fanon to rival the amount we have in reality (77 plus countless colonies parodying real-life countries vs 196 in reality). Policies are put in place for a reason, you know. --ayyy fam Wikipenguino (talkcontribsarticles) Here's a little lesson in trickery... Ring Ring!

  • As for the proposal, I don't think nullifying the policy is needed, especially not at this time. There are only a few users who don't have countries of their own, and those users can follow the protocol on the policy if they want to have their own country (five HQAs and double admin approval). Those restrictions aren't very hard to overcome if the users are determined, and they only exist as a way to prevent cluttering the wiki with sub-par country articles from users who aren't very skilled editors yet. CKSysop/BOBmaster? 01:45, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Definently yes. Anyway, it should be so that anyone can make a new country, NOT so that only the users with no country can. If it is so that only the users with no country can, then i'll change my vote. --

    • People with countries can make another country as well. I wouldn't give them limitations.--Drunk science.gif I FEEL GR8 M8 MLG LOL. Wanna Chat? -Mcdonalds394 2016.png 16:01, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
  • If we do it, there will be some sort of restriction. Last year it was a limit of one country per user, this time it could be that, the five HQA requirement from the policy, or something else. Or perhaps, some limit saying that any of poor quality in X amount of time will be deleted. Unrestricted spamming of LQA countries is exactly what the policy is preventing. CKSysop/BOBmaster? 18:52, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Also, keeping the 5 HQAs thing would be useless, as the users who don't have countries do not have 5 HQAs yet. If it is kept, then only the users who already have countries can make new ones. The non-HQA country deletion thing from last year seems way better. --

  • I'm pretty sure that doesn't change the fact that we all get one country per user and cannot create another. The '5 HQAs thing' in my opinion isn't useless, like one of us said before, if you're committed, it shouldn't be a problem. --ayyy fam Wikipenguino (talkcontribsarticles) Here's a little lesson in trickery...

  • Mcdonalds, who made the topic, said: "People with countries can make another country as well. I wouldn't give them limitations.". Even when it's one country, it means one NEW country.--

  • I have mixed feelings over this. I'm not against temporarily nullifying the policy, but on the other hand CK is right in that the policy prevents poorly-written country articles. Plus, it isn't impossible to make a country even with the policy. Five HQAs isn't a difficult task, and more often than not the admins would just say yes if you have those. Country making isn't banned forever, you just need to show you can write quality articles. --User:EDFan12345 17:55, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Is it until March 29 like the topic says or starting on March 29 like you said in the comments? --

  • I have no idea, McD has changed things a few times. CKSysop/BOBmaster? 09:32, 9 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Regardless of whether it was your intent or not, this just looks like you trying to make a country because you don't want to/can't make 5 HQAs. ULSK12TalkContribsBATCHIRIMINAAAAAA I WANT TO BE SPECIAL.jpg 06:46, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
  • I don't believe that country-making should be completely free and without restrictions. Current restrictions are way, way too harsh but they are also way, way too lenient. --Penstubal (Talk) (Edits) 11:33, 10 March 2017 (UTC)
  • Another potentially but probably unlikely issue I about this whole "no limitations" thing I was thinking of is that if one person had several countries under their control, they could possibly abuse it to annex other lesser nations without difficulty. --ayyy fam Wikipenguino (talkcontribsarticles) Here's a little lesson in trickery...
