LoL Facebook Icon 28 This page documents an official League of Legends Wiki policy.

It is a widely accepted standard that should normally be followed by all editors.


Voting is not a substitute for discussion.

Even when a voting procedure is initiated, discussion can, should, and is encouraged to continue. The position taken by a user in a voting procedure may be challenged at any point.

On League of Legends Wiki, there should be a vote (open to all users) on whether there should be a change or what should be changed when the consensus of a major discussion is not clear. Community votes are also held when a user requests user rights for Moderator, Administrator and Bureaucrat. The following should be noted:

  • Once a vote opens, an administrator may add a notice for it to Community messages. If a user is concerned that a discussion is not gaining enough attention, they may also request a community message on the administrator noticeboard.
  • Voting will run for a maximum of two weeks. If there is a clear majority in favour of one of the solutions presented, that solution will be implemented.
    • If there are two solutions presented and voting is inconclusive (there is no consensus in favor of any solution presented), the discussion will be considered to have failed to gain consensus and the status quo will stand.
    • If there are more than two solutions presented and voting is inconclusive after two weeks, the two options with the most votes will undergo a second round of voting.
  • Vote by typing either of the following in the relevant sections:
    • # {{Support}} ~~~~ to produce
      1. Support Support — Example (talk • contribs) 10:08, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
    • # {{Neutral}} ~~~~ to produce
      1. Neutral Neutral — Example (talk • contribs) 10:08, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
    • # {{Oppose}} ~~~~ to produce
      1. Oppose Oppose — Example (talk • contribs) 10:08, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
  • Voting procedures on League of Legends Wiki are not polls. If a user chooses to vote, the user must justify your position with a clear, logical argument. A justification like "per user X" is strongly discouraged. Please see Wikipedia:Polling is not a substitute for discussion.
  • If no votes are cast for a consecutive three days, the voting procedure will end prematurely. If there is a clear majority in favor of one of the solutions presented, that solution will be implemented. If voting is inconclusive (there is no consensus in favor of any solution presented), the discussion will be considered to have failed to gain consensus and the status quo will stand.
