You may be wondering why I don't have any shows or aliens listed in the various sub-sections of the Navigation? Well that's because I have a proposal. Only 7 pages would be in each section, and to determine which ones would be on the Navigation, YOU, the Community would comment on this blog and nominate a show/alien by saying:

I NOMINATE <insert page here, please link it> TO BE IN THE <insert either "Fanon Shows" or "Omnitrix Aliens"> TAB, AS PART OF THE <insert section of Tab. If Omnitrix Alien, say which kind of Alien (Elemental, Powerful, etc). If Show, say which kind ("Spinoff/Inversed", "Shows about Ben", etc.)> 'SECTION. '

After a couple of days, I would take all the nominations for each Tab and Section. If there are more then 7, I would take all these pages, and put them in http://www.randomresult.com/pick.php. This website would randomly select 7 shows/aliens and whatever the shows/aliens are would be put onto the certain sections. This would make sure we were being "fair" to all shows and not being bias.

So, what do you think?


Please state your opinion by using two templates in your comments.

For deciding if this version of the new Navigation should be used, use:

Support
Support -
Oppose
Oppose -

For Deciding if we should nominate different shows/aliens and then randomly select 7 to be on different sections of the Navigation, use:

Support
Support -
Oppose
Oppose - .

To make these templates, type {{Support}} and {{Oppose}} in Source Mode. Please give VALID reasons to why you Support or Oppose both decisions.

Neutral Neutral - This template will not be recognized at all because Neutral is a "I don't know" template, and saying "I don't know" doesn't help decide anything. Also personally, I hate this template ALOT.

Comment Comment - This template is allowed, but please only use it if you have a suggestion.

Voting for both of these things ends on Saturday, February 1st, 2014.
