There is a simple process that all Quote of the Week candidates go through in order to be selected as a Quote of the Week. That process is as follows:
- To vote, a user must have 20 edits. (Number subject to change)
- Quotes are successful after reaching three (3) net votes, which is determined after adding the support and opposition votes.
- Quotes are unsuccessful after receiving a net total of negative three (-3) votes, or if they fail to garner any form of consensus after one month of being on the nominations track.
- All quotes must be sourced. If the quote only appears in an article, the source is the article.
- Users can use any reason to oppose a nomination. This includes "I don't like the quote," "it's too unbelievable," "it's too long," or anything else. All reasons are acceptable so long as users remain civil.
How to nominate:
When you nominate an article, please use the following nomination form in order to maintain a sense of organization on the nominations track:
- === Speaker's name ===
- ==== Quote (+/-#) ====
- ==== Support ====
- ==== Neutral ====
- ==== Oppose ====
- ==== Comments ====
Nominations will remain on the nominations track until they become successful, the author removes the nomination, it reaches a consensus of opposition, or it fails to gain the necessary votes to be either successful or unsuccessful after one month.
