Policy Listings

This is currently a developmental project focusing on creating a formal guide to the wiki, through the use of Policy pages. This is currently just a listing of which Policy pages would contain what information, and how that information would be presented. The order in which this information is presented can be debated and changed, as nothing has been finalized and is open for discussion.

Each Policy page should have a brief introduction including the importance of the policy, and a basic summary of its content.
