From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Community Consensus

I vote we add a rule to Halopedian of the Month that says you can vote for yourself just as long as you're not the first one to do so. There should be no problem for the popular users who are probobly more deserving of the award, but it will impede the newer users who come in and just vote for themselves when no one else thinks they should win. Thoughts? --Dragonclaws 20:40, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Agree - I really don't even look at HotM very much (which actually made me think of HotMail when I saw it, BTW), but yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Guesty-Persony-Thingy 20:42, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Agreethat's a great idea I hate when people are the first to vote for them selfs.--ryanngreenday 21:37, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Partial Concurrence - I'm from other Wikias, which allow first self-voting, but I guess it's fine. I agree. Happy New Year! Cheers, 49 Proximal Secant[oracle]File:H3 Monitor.PNG|25px]] 21:39, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Agree - As per above -- Esemono 16:12, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Agree that's never really been a problem though, the user would usually end up only getting one vote. I my opinion its poor form to vote for yourself, but its not like people can be punished for it. -ED 17:02, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

Partially Agree - Honor dictates that I never nominate myself. However, honor also dictates I not force my beliefs on others. Then again, it would be nice if there weren't a series of self-voting newbies.

Strongly Agree - Its just irritating. If someone thinks you deserve HOTM, they'll nominate you. -- Manticore File:Fleet Admiral.jpg|25px]] Talk | CSV 07:26, 11 June 2007 (UTC)


It seems we have a consensus here, and I'm sure everyones noticed a few newbies seem persistent on voting for themselves every month. I agree with Dragonclaws above, vote for yourself, but only if someone else has nominated you already! So can we implement some sort of policy now? -- Manticore File:Fleet Admiral.jpg|25px]] Talk | CSV 11:59, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
