I have a proposal to improve the voting policy, seen here: Call of Duty Wiki:Voting Lately, and in the past, people have voted against something in favor of something else. An example would be:

Pictogram voting oppose OpposeVehicles is a better article   Hax 217    talk-page  

This is quite clearly not a legitimate reason to oppose. I propose that users shouldn't be allowed to do this. Thoughts?   Hax 217    talk-page  03:29, July 20, 2010 (UTC)


I don't think we should have so many restrictions on people's thoughts; You can tell what people are getting at even with an answer like that. Shotrocket6 03:31, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think we should do that. In Requested Featured Articles, if one article is better than another, why not say it? Cpl. Dunn(Talk) 03:33, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree. User's get their own opinions on what they say. Bear emblem MW2 DevilWarrior112 Talk06:39, July 20, 2010 (UC)

A better example of this is more frequently seen in RfAs, such as the following:

  • Pictogram voting oppose Oppose — NuttyTheSurd is more deserving than Bax

While I do argue against the credibility of relative statements, it shouldn't be banned. Sometimes it is a relevant point and users should be allowed to have freedom in how they form and express their opinions. It is up to other users to challenge such statements in debate, which is what voting really is. It's not the number of votes that count but the points made by either side. --Scottie theNerd 10:12, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree. There was once a proposal on voting, where the nominator said that saying "per x" wasn't a legitimate reason. This failed, because users were restricted in giving their opinions (this case agreeing). Like Scottie said, we should allow the users no restrictions in stating their opinion, as all users are equal. LITE992 13:04, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Although I dislike comments like that, especially in RFAs, as they are just plain rude and unneeded, restricting them would only mean restricting the user's freedom of speach and the Call of Duty Wiki is not a Dictatorship, we shouldn't be able to do that.
