en:Creek mythology[edit]

(Net support = 4; Against = 16.667%) (Group 1)

The Creek mythology is related to an American Indian Creek people who are originally from the southeastern United States, also known by their original name Muscogee (or Muskogee), the name they use to identify themselves today. Mvskoke is their name in traditional spelling. Modern Muscogees live primarily in Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. Their language, Mvskoke, is a member of the Creek branch of the Muskogean language family. The Seminole are close kin to the Muscogee and speak a Creek language as well. The Creeks were considered one of the Five Civilized Tribes. After the Creek War many of the Creeks escaped to Florida to create the Seminole.

(Net support = 3; Against = 20%) (Group 1)

Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont: Langhe-Roero and Monferrato is the official name of a new UNESCO World Heritage Site comprising "five distinct wine-growing areas with outstanding landscapes" plus the Castle of Grinzane Cavour in the region of Piedmont, Italy. The site, which extends over hilly areas of Langhe and Montferrat, is one of the most important wine producing zones in Italy. Located in the center of Piedmont region (North West of Italy), the site is inscribed as a "cultural landscape", since it is a result of the combined work of nature and man. The site is inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List thanks to the outstanding value of its wine culture, which has shaped the landscape over the centuries.

en:Civil township[edit]

(Net support = 2; Against = 0%) (Group 1)

A civil township is a widely used unit of local government in the United States, subordinate to a county. The term town is used in New England, New York and Wisconsin to refer to the equivalent of the civil township in these states. Specific responsibilities and the degree of autonomy vary based on each state. Civil townships are distinct from survey townships, but in states that have both, the boundaries often coincide and may completely geographically subdivide a county. The U.S. Census Bureau classifies civil townships as minor civil divisions.

The River Cuckmere rises near Heathfield in East Sussex, England on the southern slopes of the Weald.

Eventually flowing into the English Channel, it is the only undeveloped river mouth on the Sussex coast

James Robert Baker (October 18, 1946 – November 5, 1997) was an American author of sharply satirical, predominantly gay-themed transgressional fiction. A native Californian, his work is set almost entirely in Southern California. After graduating from UCLA, he began his career as a screenwriter, but became disillusioned and started writing novels instead. Though he garnered fame for his books Fuel-Injected Dreams and Boy Wonder, after the controversy surrounding publication of his novel, Tim and Pete, he faced increasing difficulty having his work published. According to his life partner, this was a contributing factor in his suicide.

An International Driving Permit (IDP) is an identity document that allows the holder to drive a private motor vehicle in any country that recognises IDPs. To be valid, the IDP must be accompanied by a valid driving licence.

The IDP, which is slightly larger than a passport, is a multi-language translation of the driver's licence from the issuing nation, complete with photograph and vital statistics. Oftentimes, short term visitors do not need an IDP since their driving licence suffices.

en:Solidarity Forever[edit]

(Net support = 2; Against = 25%) (Group 1)

"Solidarity Forever", written by Ralph Chaplin in 1915, is perhaps the most famous union anthem. It is sung to the tune of "John Brown's Body" and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". Although it was written as a song for the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), other union movements, such as the AFL-CIO, have adopted the song as their own. The song has been performed by musicians such as Utah Phillips, and was redone by Emcee Lynx and The Nightwatchman. It is still commonly sung at union meetings and rallies in the United States, Australia and Canada, and has also been sung at conferences of the Australian Labor Party and the Canadian New Democratic Party.

HTML email is the use of a subset of HTML (often ill-defined) to provide formatting and semantic markup capabilities in email that are not available with plain text.

Most graphical email clients support HTML email, and many default to it. Many of these clients include both a GUI editor for composing HTML emails and a rendering engine for displaying received HTML emails. Long URLs can be linked to without being broken into multiple pieces, and text is wrapped to fit the width of the user agent's viewport, instead of uniformly breaking each line at 78 characters (defined in RFC 5322, which was necessary on older text terminals). It allows in-line inclusion of tables, as well as diagrams or mathematical formulae as images, which are otherwise difficult to convey (typically using ASCII art).

Banksia violacea, commonly known as violet banksia, is a species of shrub or tree in the plant genus Banksia (family Proteaceae). It generally grows as a small shrub to 1.5 m (5 ft) high with fine narrow leaves, and is best known for its unusually coloured dark purple-violet inflorescences. The colour of the inflorescences, short leaves, and flattened follicles which are sticky when young, help identify this species from others in the field.[2] It is found in low shrubland in southern regions of Western Australia from Esperance in the east to Narrogin in the west, growing exclusively in sandy soils.

Equal oppose and support, and a minimum of 2 positive votes (group 3)

  • Sorted first by the net support and second in order of nomination.
  • If a candidate has an equal number of opposing votes and supporting votes for one month, it will be removed from the list (rule 2).
  • (With a minimum of 2 positive votes, of course. Candidates with 1-1 stay in group 5, to prevent unjust rewards.)


en:Toilet paper orientation[edit]

(fr:Orientation du papier toilette)

(Net support = 0; Against = 50%) (Group 3) (No votes from 1 month and 3 days) (→ It is removable)

Toilet paper when used with a toilet roll holder with a horizontal axle parallel to the floor has two possible orientations: the toilet paper may hang over (in front of) or under (behind) the roll. The choice is largely a matter of personal preference, dictated by habit. In surveys of US consumers and of bath and kitchen specialists, 60–70% of respondents prefer over.

  1. Too long (but introduction is not so long), too many editions, some editions (like the Italian) would not accept it. --Gce (talk) 00:44, 16 January 2015 (UTC)

Less than 50% support (group 4)

  • Sorted first by the net support (number of support votes minus number of oppose votes) and second in order of nomination.
  • If a candidate has more opposing votes than supporting ones for two weeks, it will be removed from the list (rule 1).
  • Currently, there are no candidates in this situation.


New candidates (group 5)

  • With only 1 positive vote. (Regardless of whether they receive a negative vote or more.)
  • Sorted first by the net support and second in order of nomination.
  • If a candidate has no vote after two weeks, it will be removed from the list (rule 4).

en:Asymptotic gain model[edit]

(Net support = -1; Against = 66.667%) (Group 5) (No votes from 19 days) (→ It is removable)

The asymptotic gain model (also known as the Rosenstark method) is a representation of the gain of negative feedback amplifiers given by the asymptotic gain relation:

G = G_{\infty} \left( \frac{T}{T + 1} \right) + G_0 \left( \frac{1}{T + 1} \right) \ ,

where T is the return ratio with the input source disabled (equal to the negative of the loop gain in the case of a single-loop system composed of unilateral blocks), G is the asymptotic gain and G0 is the direct transmission term. This form for the gain can provide intuitive insight into the circuit and often is easier to derive than a direct attack on the gain.
