Please vote to resolve a consensus dispute on which picture to use in this template. The poll is here. Thank you, come again. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 19:22 May 11 2012

If we want to look for a consensus one way or another, let's please do an actual vote. Using a poll prevents people from not only signing to indicate who they are, but also being able to discuss it at all. Now you've been pushing for this change for months despite having already been reverted by three different people on the template itself, so an actual discussion might be in order at this point, even if it is framed as a vote, no? Here:
Sounds fair enough to me. This isn't for drama, this is for consensus. I wanted to have a discussion on it months ago as you can see from the talk page but I got brushed off rather rudely. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 19:47 May 11 2012
Uncyclopedians seem to be really bad at using talkpages. Forums, on the other hand... it's weird. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 05:06, 12 May 2012

Do folks want to use the new version over the original version?

Not caring one way or another is a perfectly valid response.

  • Symbol against vote Against. I prefer the book. Not only is it not an animated image, but 'Queen's Reader' also makes more sense within the scheme of Uncyclopedia, what with the whole Order of Uncyclopedia and Sophia and all that jazz. 1234 ~ 16px-Pointy 19:36, 11 May 2012
  • Symbol for vote For. I prefer the animated gif. Not only is it not a random picture of a book, but it also makes more sense within the scheme of the template, what with the whole "Banned User" thing and all that jazz. --Hotadmin4u69 [TALK] 19:38 May 11 2012
  • Against EMC version. Not really the right message to send out - either makes fun of banned users in quite a vicious way, or undermines the banning process thereby subtly justifying unbanning. Not really an area for humour/humor. There are a couple of other ban templates that are less "Fun" that might be more appropriate.--Sycamore (Talk) 19:45, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol comment vote Comment. I kinda like the gif, but the others might have a point with it being potentially inappropriate in certain situations. But EMC definitely has a point with the book being completely random. Why not a book that's actually related to banning and/or Sophia Lorenz? Someone could even potatochop one, if need be.

  • The new one is awsome. Does anyone know where it came from? --ShabiDOO 21:03, May 11, 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol against vote Against.I prefer the book, the animated gif almost makes it seem like the banning wasn't serious. -- Simsilikesims(♀GUN) Talk here. 01:32, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol against vote Against. It's funnier, but the book is cooler with the name Queen's Reader. It just looks like a book which would be a ban book or something. I doubt if many people will read the book's title, I never did. The guy slapping the kid around is funny, and seems closer to the truth in some cases, but the book is classier and not demeaning (not as funny though). Aleister1:48 12-5-'12
  • Prefer original; The GIF is funny on its own, but the joke about being Queen's Reader is of type of clever witticism that I like most about Uncyclopedia. Also, I don't particularly care for animated GIFs in webpages. - I'm Not Funny 03:07, May 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • Older version for the win. The new one is just sickening. (Translation: That animated GIF, for some reason, just doesn't work on my browser unless I'm scrolling.) ~Pleb Sig-banner the magic! Dan the Hedgehog TheHappySpaceman Eclipse BANANA BATLETH 03:42, 05/12/2012

  • Slap. It's funnier. This is a humor wiki. It is template appropriate. It isn't a boring book. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 20:55, May 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • Sorry but I genuinely find the book funnier. Although the slap is pretty funny. Oh... someone choose for me! --Black Flamingo 22:27, May 16, 2012 (UTC)
  • Symbol against vote Against. The gif is funny but should only be used as a way to diffuse tension in a drama/conversation/activity that could lead to a permanent ban. I wouldn't use with noobs but perhaps the 'old soaks' who will understand what it means and where it could lead. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ® (Orate) 06:39, May 17, 2012 (UTC)
