Policies are some of the most important rules of Guild Wars Guilds. Not only can they regulate content, but they can also regulate user conduct as well.
Creating, revising and repealing policies
Policies cannot be arbitrarily altered (with the exception of typo fixes and things to the like). New policies and policy changes must be drafted, proposed, discussed, and reach concensus before they are considered policy.
Policy changes (major or minor) are proposed by adding a link to the "Proposed Changes" section below (they should be added even if they are still in draft form). Major changes to a policy should have their own page which should be a subpage of the policy you wish to change (for example, it should be as so Guild Wars Guilds:<POLICYNAME>/<CHANGENAME>), in which the change is present. If you wish to propose a new policy then you must create a new page (Guild Wars Guilds:<NEWPOLICYNAME>) and create a draft version of the policy
Without concensus in favor of implementation, rejection or retraction, a policy proposal may remain a proposal indefinitely.
The recently implemented proposals and recently failed proposals sections may be periodically trimmed, however recently failed proposals must retain all proposals which have failed in the past two months and have not been re-proposed.
