So how do we make this a contest? should people come here to vote? --FUNKAMATIC ~talk 15:36, 14 April 2009 (UTC)

There should be a deadline set for entries first. --nintend06 <talk> 17:41, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. When we do vote, should people just leave their vote in comment form here? I don't know if there is any way to make a poll in wiki.--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 17:19, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
People can, in theory, change other people's votes on a wiki. When tallying votes, they could check the page history to be sure, but that sounds like too much trouble. --nintend06 <talk> 17:35, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
Just have a table like wikipedia. Muzer 17:41, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
I never said it wasn't doable; just that voting on a wiki isn't the best way to do things. If there's a forum like WiiBrew's, setting up a poll there would probably be the best way to vote. There needs to be a deadline first, though. --nintend06 <talk> 18:12, 16 April 2009 (UTC)
If any one wants i could build a small voting script but it will be very basic and i wont be using a db so if someone clears there cookies then they can alter the results to there liking Thetooth 21:37, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
Update: I have modifyed a script to be used as voting it is secure and will work perfectly! if you want it please send mail to thetooth@ameoto.com and i'll send it with instuctions on how to use. Thetooth 10:52, 19 April 2009 (UTC)
so anybody knows when will the contest end? Moonhack 13:29, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
The contest should close on May 12, exactly 1 month after the contest began. As for the voting, the poll will take place on a wikipage that I set up. More details will come when the contest closes. --Blooper (Talk) 01:52, 21 April 2009 (UTC)
Uhhhh, so the contest ended 2 days ago? I think we should warn people a few days before the contest ends. In addition to that, the method that we're voting should be announced.--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 08:52, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
Obviously noone does really care about this wiki. Not even the administrators. --Makorus 07:58, 16 May 2009 (UTC)
Correction: Nobody does really care about this competition, not even the administrators. Muzer 09:10, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
Let's just take the one by albertoi or Moonhack (if you like Wiibrew-style) for now, would always be better than that crappy steaming pot... :P --BlackNeedle 19:38, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

this site currently = FAIL.... but i hope that changes, like when some of the admins come decide what to do with this contest. --ChuckBartowski 02:47, 18 May 2009 (UTC)


Alright, how do we vote now?--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 01:34, 30 May 2009 (UTC)


Whose logo will be used? --bg4545 03:43, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, whose logo? --Moonhack Around 12, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Why, of course the one with the most votes... Wait, did you just say we never did vote? :P --BlackNeedle 16:20, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Voting time!

Okay, here's the deal. Review all the logos on the contest page. You can vote for as many logos as you like. Please copy the template below and add your vote to the end of the Votes section. At the end of the voting period, the logo with the strongest support will be chosen. The administrators reserve the right to reject a logo for any reason, even if it is in the lead.

The template

Please copy this in it's entirety (replacing what's inside the gallery tags, obviously) and do not remove or change the squiggles (--~~~~) at the bottom.

dvdhn currently ahead of mvit by 2!--ChuckBartowski 20:40, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
mvit now ahead by 1!--Zylar 19:42, 22 July 2009 (UTC)

When should the voting end? I think should at the end of July on the 31st.--playit800 12:25, 19 July 2009 (UTC)

Because the link to voting isn't even on the front page anymore, I say the voting is over.--FUNKAMATIC ~talk 19:10, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

Since the voting is closed, I'm going to go ahead and tally the top 3, do check my counting of course. ^_^ And no, I did not cast a vote before the voting ends, so I will not cast one. After a bit of counting, these are the top 3 logos, shown with author and (+numVotes). I personally like all three of them, so I'm happy that my vote couldn't have made a difference. I counted this on 8/21/2009 at 2:28 PM Central Time, so someone may want to verify my numbers with the editing history, based on when the voting was supposed to end.

Since an exploit was found, I imagine lots of people are going to check in here regularly to see about updates, etc, so having a logo picked out would liven the place up a bit, I think. --Thegamefreak0134 17:13, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Edit: I apparently lie, voting was never officially closed. --Thegamefreak0134 12:48, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

soooo....uhh yeah.... its been like 3 months and... i was kinda wondering when there would be an icon... not to rush you or anything....--ChuckBartowski 04:27, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
