Discussing things related to user rights.
First issue, number of votes required. This came to my attention due to a recent nomination where only 5 users participated and was passed.
On this wiki, a minimum of 5 votes are required to make a consensus if not enough votes take place till due time. This is far too less to make a proper consensus from a large wiki where 10-20 can easily participate.
Granting a user rights can bring drastic changes to the wiki and they are appointed for a reason. Having only 5 users vote can possibly lead a bias group and is clearly not a "community decision" since we have average of 20 chat regulars. It makes no sense why a chat mod requires less votes than an admin, and if so, 5 is still far too low.
Secondly, making it compulsory to mention why you are supporting or opposing for every user right, mainly support. Clearly describe what made you support and why you think this person can run things around this wiki.
- Plain signature votes are not trustful and don't count as opinions to make a change. The least a vote can comprise is "Per nomination" or something like that. A crat has to make a consensus out of the nomination only so do state why you are voting,
- Along with ambiguous nominations to be removed as well.
