This page is considered an official policy on Star Wars Fanon.
It has wide acceptance among editors and is considered a standard that everyone should follow. Except for minor edits, please make use of the discussion page to propose changes to this policy.


This page in a nutshell
In order to vote, a member of the community requires at least 50 mainspace edits, may not be a sockpuppet, may not be an IP, may not be a vandal or banned, and must properly sign their votes.

The voting policy of the Star Wars Fanon Wiki was established to create proper and fair voting for the entire Star Wars Fanon community. The policy requires all users to have a minimum of 50 mainspace edits. Furthermore, users must sign their votes, be in good standing with the wiki, logged in, and have only one account. Anonymous votes and sockpuppet votes will not be counted and users may not vote for or against themselves in nominations for UotM, Requests for Adminship, Bureaucratship or Rollback rights. Moreover, one cannot vote for their own articles in the Wiki Awards or the Short Story Contest. Users do, however, have the ability to withdraw their name or their article from contention.

Like all other policies of the Star Wars Fanon Wiki, any member of the community may enforce the voting policy, as long as it is done so properly.
