ForumWiki Policies

{{Forumtop}}

I thought I would suggest some new policies for us as an up and coming wiki. ''Note These Policies are based on ones found on the Call of Duty Wiki and have only worked to better the community there.''

== Site and Community Policies ==
*'''Be bold''' - Don't be afraid to make edits and change things.
*'''Consensus''' - Consensus is how the wiki operates and is the model for its decision making.
*'''Don't delete discussions''' - Do not remove discussion from a talk page unless it is blatant vandalism. This policy applies to user talk pages as well.
*'''Red Link policy''' - Don't make red links to prove a point, only use them for pages that need to be created.

== User Policies ==
*'''All editors are equal''' - All editors, regardless of status and position, are treated equally and have the same amount of say in their opinion.
*'''Assume good faith''' - Unless it is obvious vandalism, always assume that a user's contributions to the wiki are to improve it.
*'''Blocking guidelines''' - Destructive editors and vandals that need to be blocked should be barred from editing the wiki in increasing periods of time depending on the magnitude of vandalism or controversial edits and if they were blocked previously.
*'''Sock puppetry''' - One editor, one account.
*'''User treatment policy''' - Be considerate and not disruptive.

I'm open to expansion upon these policies, as well as ideas for new policices. {{Signatures/Damac1214}} 2100, April 11, 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like a fine proposal. {{sig/KATANAGOD}} ''2202, April 11, 2012 (UTC)''

==Moving along==
Even though they'res only like 3/4/5 people here, may as well vote if we'll use these policies. 
Use {{TemplateOppose|Oppose}} for {{Oppose}} {{TemplateSupport|Support}} for {{Support}} and finally {{TemplateNeutral|Neutal}} for {{Neutral}}
