An office pipe represents an office in an executive power structure. Its nominee property names the applicant whom the pipe minder intends to appoint to the office. The nominee is often a direct voter of the pipe, and thus an explicit applicant for the office, but may be anyone.1

Creating an office pipe

Each office pipe declares itself by a template call in the following form. This is the minimal wikitext essential to an office pipe:

{{office pipe
 | is active = Property:Is active value.
 | minder = Property:Minder value, but without the "User" namespace.
 | nominee = Property:Nominee value, but without the "User" namespace.
     Use "Anonymous" to clear the nomination.
 | poll = Property:Poll value.  Encoded in the page under id "pipePoll".

Certain restrictions of placement and form are necessary for this to work correctly. The template call must precede any section headings that are written to the same page. And the template parameters must be assigned in the order shown above.2 Violating these restrictions may cause the pipe to fail. To create a office pipe:

  1. Follow the instructions of Category:Pipe to create a basic pipe, or to reactivate an existing one.

  2. Ensure the wikitext of the pipe declaration is in office form:

    {{office pipe
     | is active = true
     | minder = YOUR USERNAME
     | nominee = Anonymous
     | poll = Sys/p/sandbox
     }} <!-- must precede any section headings, parameter order matters -->

    You may want to copy from an existing office-pipe page. In any case insert your own mailish username and the correct name of the poll.
