From major policy changes to minor War Room discussions, the Call of Duty Wiki operates by consensus. This method of settlement is different from a "majority rules" system; in a consensus, the best possible resolution that the two (or more) viewpoints can achieve at the time is taken. All issues must be mediated by a neutral administrator, who will determine what the consensus is by considering points made by both sides of the argument. In order for a consensus to be decided upon, a discussion must run its due course (typically two weeks). In the event that a consensus cannot be reached in a voting process, such as a request for adminship, a rough consensus of 70% of the votes should be used to determine the outcome. To calculate a rough consensus, the number of support votes is divided by the total number of votes. Only support and oppose votes are counted in the total.
