==Demoting Staff who set a Bad Image of the Wiki (2)==

==2018==
This would be used to demote staff members who frequently make fun of other Mixels fans and make a bad image of the wiki. Suggested by ToaMatau2004 confirmed by ZootyCutie

===Revised and updated policy===
  +
The current policy needs a lot of work. It was heavily based of another wiki which means it is fit for that wiki. Over time we have added things and changed things but it still is a bit odd. One thing that stands out is how there are set in stone ban times for socking but no set in stone bans for other offences. This leads to some crazy long main bans, or chat bans being lifted for no reason. I have made a revised policy that you can view at http://le-metru-test-track.wikia.com/wiki/Policy . I made it based on the current ones, but in a way that I felt suited the wikis needs and were easy to understand and not too long. Of course it can be fixed and revised as the admins like but this works better for the wiki. This was officially approved by Tungster830 and I have talked about it with other staff. It might also be helpful to say that some other users did help with this and helped it be "fair and not too strict".

===Placeholder names===
  +
We're getting a lot of nameless Mixels and I think some of them deserve pages -- except, we don't have names for them. They do have names like "Kid #01" and counting up, but we don't know what name applies to who.
   
'''Good idea. Will be implemented if it happens. -GN'''

A system used and inspired from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic wiki, placeholder names describes coming up with and voting for different names conjured from different users for specific, unnamed Mixels, and then using them in place of every one of their mentions, including their page, if they have one.
   
==Not allowing users to post messages on their message wall except in emergency (4)==

The Pony wiki does their votes on Reddit. Since we have the Kudos system, perhaps, we could do it on a separate board on the forum, and have the votes be determined by Kudos.

===Be kinder to new incoming users on chat===
  +
I've noticed that we've almost scared new users and potential editors off because we get too strict when they come into chat without a mainspace edit. Now don't get me wrong, the one mainspace edit to chat is a good rule, but I think we need to be a bit more kinder and not kick users the second they come in. Help them out at first, and kick/ban if they don't listen or start to act disrespectful.
   
==Deleting blogs unrelated to Mixels or the wiki (6)==
+
Immediately saying "User, GET AN EDIT." the minute they join (and/or kick them over that) can scare new users off right away, especially if they don't know how to edit and need help. Rather, say something like "Hi, welcome to the wiki! You'll need a mainspace edit to chat, by the way." It can leave a better impression on new users.

'''I've already been doing this, but I encourage other admins to join in. -GN'''
+
If a new user joins, don't assume they are a sock of a banned account. This is a way to scare users away from the wiki. New users do join and aren't always sockpuppets.
==Kicking Very Inactive Users in Chat (-2)==
+
:Results: Vote passed
Hi there. I've been thinking that if a user has been away for a certain amount of time, he/she should be kicked from the chat. The thing is, if you aren't chatting anymore, stop chatting! Also, this may be why the chat crashes a lot. However, this will not lead to any blocks in any way.

===Killing Chat rule===
'''This is pointless. People can be away if they want. People go to the bathroom, get food etc. while they chat all the time. -GN'''
+
If people are in chat but nobody is talking/ they are afk and nobody is there, an admin would ask if they can kill the chat by pinging all afk users. After 5 minutes if nobody has joined the chat. The admin can kill the chat. Alternately (doesn't need to be part of rule), if a user is always AFK when nobody frequently, they can be briefly chat banned.

==Removing Users from Mainspace Categories (11)==
+
:Results: Vote halted
I think we should disallow users from adding mainspace categories to their userpage. This adds confusion to readers and is unprofessional. If this is approved we will need to make a user infobox and request all users to remove them from their pages.
 
 
'''Definitely. Let's start, shall we? Before they build up too much. -GN'''
 
 
==Close Message Threads after a certain Inactivity Period (7)==
 
I've noticed that some recent message board threads have been restarted up again after long moments of inactivity with pointless topics. My idea would cause threads to be closed (like say, after two weeks of inactivity) to avoid "necroing" these threads, keeping the activity page clearer and to avoid random spam on issues that have been resolved.
