Hello to my fellow PAW Patrol Wiki editors!
Today I am launching the first wiki-wide vote on a move I've been wanting to make on our wiki for a long time.
I've noticed that primary gallery pages such as Marshall/Gallery have been so badly flooded with images that the page creates severe lag for users such as myself. There are hundreds upon thousands of images on a single page such as the one mentioned, not to mention the constantly-growing list of separate sub-gallery pages such as Chase's Gallery/Pups Save a Floundering Francois.
To minimize lag and maximize performance of our primary gallery pages, I want to remove all images on every primary gallery page for characters, and instead have each of the pages only contain the list of sub-gallery pages such as Rocky's Gallery/Pups Save Friendship Day. This way, viewers won't have to wait for several minutes at a time for the page to load, and the images will still remain on separate sub-gallery pages. If enacted, this will be effective for every character's gallery page, regardless of size.
Users have recently brought forth the idea of, if we ultimately choose "remove", removing all images on a single gallery page except promotional images not able to be found anywhere else. Since I like this idea, even though it is tedious, this is an example of how a page may look if we ultimately choose "remove".
Since this is a major change, I am starting a comment vote (beginning right now) for the public to decide on what to do. The vote will conclude on July 1, 2017.
To prevent fraudulent votes using Fandom's standard poll system, I am requiring that your vote is cast via a comment on this blog post. Please ensure to include either Keep or Remove along with your comment and/or opinion. Users are free to change their mind by editing their comment or replying to it with the opposite choice.
I hope to get plenty of responses! PAW Patrol is on a roll!
