Vote[edit]

Please write the numbers of the possibilities you'd choose, you might explain in discussion. You can choose more than one possibility (e.g. both for cities where names differs significantly and for cities where currently there is a minority), unless you choose first (both names for all cities) or the last (both names never used) possibility

I choose 3th and 5th suggestions, as this in my opinion would be the best compromise, and would include towns where this name was/is in actual use by local population or modern times official matters. DeirYassin 22:03, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • 3, with possible option for 5, but the latter is seriously flawed in that the exact area of Lithuanian claims would be hard to define. Halibutt 22:19, Jun 4, 2005 (UTC) - indeed, let's discuss the vote and think of it first. Halibutt 12:55, Jun 10, 2005 (UTC)

Wikipedia policy on surveys[edit]

Not so fast. This survey has to conform with Wikipedia policy, as expressed in Wikipedia:Survey guidelines. In particular, a single user has no right to unilaterally set up the survey and define all the questions. Balcer 22:46, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

I'd strongly recommend to improve the Survey guidelines first - visit Template_talk:Gdansk-Vote-Notice#Constructive_proposal. Then, when this is fixed, we can carry out a vote here. Note that if we don't fix it, we are likely to end up in another quagmire like the Gdansk Vote, which seems to have failed to resolve the issue. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 10:25, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)
