A point of order about the vote[edit]

Are IP addresses permitted to vote in this discussion? I just noticed an IP address submit a vote, but for something like this, shouldn't users have to log in? DaneGeld (talk) 08:48, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Formally, these are advisory discussions, not true votes (or even true !votes). So I usually allow IP contributions (within reason). StevenJ81 (talk) 14:50, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Move protection?[edit]

Hello there, the usere who moved the request page, also moved a few pages at Simple English Wikipedia. It would probably make sense to move-protect this discussion? --Eptalon (talk) 21:30, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done StevenJ81 (talk) 22:31, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Splitting up the !votes into Support and Oppose[edit]

@StevenJ81: - is there any way that we could split the votes up into support and oppose rather than just counting the number of people who've commented? This would make the whole thing much easier to follow and give a clearer idea of where this is going :) DaneGeld (talk) 00:17, 1 July 2018 (UTC)

I don't know what the exact count is, but if the Oppose Opposes don't have a tiny numerical majority, it will still be a No Consensus discussion/waste of time. enL3X1 ¡‹delayed reaction›¡ 17:18, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

Until when is this discussion staying open?[edit]

Until when is this discussion staying open? In other words: when is the deadline to contribute to this debate? Thank you. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 16:33, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

It will stay open until July 19, or longer if the discussion remains active. StevenJ81 (talk) 16:42, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Protected edit request on 21 July 2018[edit]

{{edit fully-protected|Proposals for closing projects/Closure of Simple English Wikipedia (3)}} I think it is a good idea to close this Wikipedia Abote2 (talk) 23:50, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Discussion is complete.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:11, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

@StevenJ81: your chosen template at close of discussion says discussion open, yet you have protected the page. Can you please work out which you want it to be, and if necessary update the template if we do want to close/protect, and garner opinion on the talk page.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:17, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done templates fixed. It was previously announced that the discussion would be closed and page temporarily protected as of 12 UTC Thursday. When LangCom has a tentative decision, we’ll publish that and unprotect. StevenJ81 (talk) 02:51, 22 July 2018 (UTC)
