Next, the crowner should run until it stabilizes and there is a consensus. There is no strict set maximum or minimum number of days that a crowner has to stay open, but as a general rule of thumb, they normally should stay open for at least three days (not counting weekends) and should not be closed until there is a clear consensus. If the change is a major one (like the renaming of a whole namespace), you need at least one week. Crowners have timestamps in their headers, so [[Administrivia/TimestampsAreYourFriends check them]] if you aren't sure whether enough time has passed.

So you have been participating in a thread in [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/conversations.php?topic=renames Trope Repair Shop]] or [[https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/conversations.php?topic=images Image Pickin’]] , there has been some discussion about what to do to fix a page, and you want to move on to the next step and that much closer to actually fixing the page. In most cases, this means making a crowner.

Generally, it is a good idea to wait until there has been a decent amount of discussion (and a [[Administrivia/HowToDoAWickCheck Wick Check]] if appropriate) about the issue with the trope(s) before making a crowner. If you aren’t sure whether it is time for a crowner, posting in the thread to ask is normally a good idea.

A Single Proposition crowner is for situations when there is only one clear question that can be answered with a Yes (Up)/No (Down) vote such as “Rename This Trope?” “Split This Trope?” “Cut This Trope?” or “Merge This Trope and That Trope?”

Alternative Titles crowners are used to select a new name for a trope that is being renamed or for picking a name for a new trope that is being split off. Since these come after an initial rename decision (usually decided by a Single Proposition crowner), “Keep the old name” or any variant is '''not to be put on an Alternative Titles crowner'''. These crowners are for listing and voting on possible new names, not for arguing for the old one.

Crowners are a tool for measuring consensus for a decision on the wiki. The name is an ArtifactTitle from when they were used to determine Crowning examples of YMMV tropes like SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome. Interested tropers can choose to vote in them by clicking on the up or down arrows next to each option. You may vote for multiple options and revert your vote if you change your mind, but you obviously can only select up or down for each choice.

The important thing for consensus is the proportion of votes rather than the number of votes. For example, an option with 20 ups and 10 downs (a 2:1 ratio) beats out one with 98 ups and 97 downs (a 1.01:1 ratio).
