Opposing?

I don't think an opposition section is needed. If you don't like the article, just take your vote elsewhere. After all, it's the article with the most votes that wins at the end of the day. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 22:32, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

First of all, why not? There's no honest reason to not have it, every single FA voting system I know has oppose, because it's to point out that you disagree with it getting it. It can help influence other votes, which it did here. Second, jokingly, wasn't it you who made Template:Oppose in the first place? ;) —The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 22:39, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree, that's how we do it (or so it seems?) on the Fanon site. Vaznock - Talk 22:39, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Er, didn't intend for it to be used here... :P, but anyway, if you really want to, then use it. Just be aware it's still the article with the most votes wins, regardless of how many oppose votes are in the same section. (It's too complicated to calculate the support rate for each article there.) Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 22:41, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Wait, do you mean if there are 12 opposes and 2 agrees, it'll still be featured? Or am I confused? —The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 22:50, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

If every other nominated article that month has 1 or less agrees, then yes. Opposes don't make a difference (unless there's a tie I guess ;)) Joey aa 22:53, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

That's....weird. Doesn't make any sense, sorry, why exactly is that? And then what's the point in opposes? —The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 22:54, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

There isn't any, that's why 888 was removing that section of voting. It's the most popular article (most votes for), not most popular article after subtracting opposes from agrees. Joey aa 22:57, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

I don't remember that part ever being including in the proposed policy. Where/when was it decided upon? —The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 23:04, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

The thing with doing it the other way is it makes the contest very complicated. Why would I bother calculating percentages for every article? Also, it makes an article with two supports and no opposes more likely to win than an article with 10 supports and 8 opposes. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 23:06, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Why are you talking about percentages? It's far less complicated then you're thinking of it. If there's 12 opposes and 5 agrees, the article is not promoted. I do see your second point, however. Hm... —The Flash - (Talk to me, talk to me, talk to me bay-bay!) 23:08, 31 May 2009 (UTC)
