Since lots of people are calling for a Forest Fire Week over in this other forum, I thought it prudent to start an official vote on whether or not we will be holding one. I would like to return to the "classic" FFW format, so let me explain what exactly I am proposing (also because some of you may not know what a FFW is):

  1. Forest Fire Week will last one week. (I'm thinking 3rd week of January)
  2. A Forest Fire Week page will be set up. Everyone will be encouraged to list pages that they think deserve deletion on the Forest Fire Week page.
  3. All week long admins will patrol the Forest Fire Week page deleting pages.
  4. Users are encouraged to try to save pages from the list. To save a page they will add {{WIP}} to the page, and then work on fixing it up. After that normal {{WIP}} protocol will apply.
  5. ???
  6. Profit.

I could go into a long explanation about all of the wonderful benefits of the Forest Fire Week process, but that would be hella boring so let's just vote! -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 08:21, December 28, 2012 (UTC)

Pardon the newbosity, but I can't figure out how to vote. Do I have to write 'boner' and sign it? Do I tap on the monitor, once for yes, twice for no? --Bill Melater (talk) 14:13, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
Write Yes and your vote will be valid. --Laurels.gifRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 14:18, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
To vote boner and sign it add #{{boner}} ~~~~ below the other votes. Then increase the score in the {{s|##}}. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 16:50, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
Ok, thanks, I'm going with the boner--Bill Melater (talk) 18:25, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
Is there a mechanism like last time where a page can be saved without needing to WIP it? --mAttlobster. (hello) 07:10, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
This is a different system from last time. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 07:26, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
If someone lists a perfectly good article, how do you save it?--mAttlobster. (hello) 07:39, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
If somebody lists an article and you do not understand why they have listed it, ask them on their talkpage. If somebody is listing perfectly good articles for no reason they will be banned. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 07:57, December 29, 2012 (UTC)
What if somebody lists a perfectly evil article because it's offensive? >:) -- Simsilikesims(♀UN) Talk here. 00:08, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Offensive to who? Censorship reigns. Zombiebaron, I hope you and the other admins uphold the banning of anyone who lists good pages, and those who don't check the history of an article. The "rules" state that the user should check the history page for vandalism before listing a page, and hopefully the person will read the page. Last time some users were listing six to ten pages a minute and not getting banned. They were listing pages and categories that they had tried to VFD and failed without getting banned. This is a serious concern, as after the last ffweeks the red links here were, and are, still epidemic in features let alone all the pages. Use the ban stick quickly, please. Aleister 12:15 31december'12
Unlike two years ago when we did the last one (when a system of templates was used) the proposed system requires users to edit a page which will create much more oversight. We will be able to definitively point to a list of page and say "This is what we deleted" and the history of the page will plainly show who added those pages. I would like to once again remind you Aleister that the speed at which people make edits does not determine how much time and effort they put in, and just because you see somebody "lists six to ten pages [in] a minute" doesn't mean that they didn't spend an hour deciding to list them. -- Brigadier General Sir Zombiebaron 02:18, January 2, 2013 (UTC)

    So you're saying FFW got you to restore and improve a heavy-traffic piece.

  18. Symbol declined.svg I join Socky's Extreme Against So many good articles get killed with almost nobody checking them. Last time people would toss a template on 10 articles a minute, this is a horrible4 decision. This is a bad thing. Aleister 00:16 New Years Eve ;12
  19. Symbol declined.svg Against. Too many deletions of articles that would otherwise be considered sufficient quality. Nominally Humane! 12:06 31 Dec
  20. Symbol declined.svg Against. There is already enough articles that aren't even made when trying to link something that should be written. Like car. Seriously. I had to write car. After maybe 6 years is it? And I stumble upon it not being written? We don't need anymore pages deleted. Or mass deletion.--Sir Peasewhizz de New York (Chat) (Stalk?) 02:03, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
  21. Symbol for vote.svg For. Easy topics are what attract people to contribute. Study and study again have shown this, and the lack of remaining topics is indeed oft attributed as a reason for Wikipedia's decline in editor attraction and retention and stuff.
