SPOON, FoRKS and related cutlery:

Nope. This is not headline material. It is about an injoke between editors, and not even all the editors care. Only about 50 or so do, by the voting.

Sadly, I'm sure we'll get a flood of vitriol and complaints after we do something.

Eh, they'll get over it. After all, it's not like reactions like this has never happened before.

Okay Guy
I think all a headline will do is attract the same kind of people who caused this mess.

These pages aren't really a big deal anyway.

Voted for the most voted option. I doubt the others will surpass it at this late point.

In uffish thought
The crowner's only been up for two days, and the top option was in the red yesterday, IIRC. There is still a fair chance it'll swing around again, though I hope it stabalises like it is soon.
Seeking for Light
Actually, I think the top option was added yesterday.

There's no hurry on this. We should leave it up for a few more days, at least.

I SAID HEY!
Am I the only one who has the feeling that some are actively WAITING for this crowner to close so they can THEN come out and complain about it?
What's going on?

No. But that can happen about anything, really, so no use getting worried about it. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Friday update: Consolidate and nuke member list is at +36 (46:10); consolidate and keep member list is at +11 (36:25). No other positive options.

[up][up][up]I want to complain that it isn't being harsher and nuking it all, does that count? I feel that on past performance I ought to be in the group that wants to rabidly defend FoRKs, but honestly I cannot be arsed with it. I think killing the entire thing, Forks included, is the way to go and keeping them even as an archive will not solve the problems. We'll back here for a nukem or keepem crowner in a year to eighteen months you know. Vote up the wipe 'em all option folks, save us time in the long run.

That's the view from a rabid Forker here.

Think of the mooks!
My only suggestion is to put a note on top of all of the TABLE entries about what's happening. I know it's on the bigger ones, but we should note it on even the smaller ones.

Mind you, I agree that we'll see complaining regardless (unless the "Do Nothing" option makes a startling comeback). Still, if we note that action is being considered on all pages, and we let the crowner go for at least a week, then we can at least reasonably say that we gave folks tons of opportunity to oppose any given action.
Reminder: Offscreen Villainy does not count towards Complete Monster.

There is a note added (by me) on all of the pages.

How long do wiki development crowners like this run? A week?

The important things yes, but for trivial things like this it's only three days. Here we had a new option added recently, so I don't feel it's ready already.

I SAID HEY!
Considering how the "Consolidate sans Member List" option is leaving by 32 votes, and that lead is only growing (albeit very very slowly), I think it might be getting close to time to call this one.

Edited for derp.

I was about to holler it, but there was another upvote then and I decided to wait a bit more.

Calling it. Actions to take: Redirect all the cutlery pages to TABLE.

eta: Done

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.

Wiki Development: Cutlery Factions Pages
27th Mar '12 8:10:28 AM
At issue:
Some of the cutlery pages have been shown to attract vitriol. What would be the best way to fix this?

Note: Not all options below are mutually exclusive, but some are. Please exercise judgment
