As most wikis do, Fanon Wiki has several policies and guidelines that help organize the wiki, solve conflicts, and maximize the wiki's quality. Policies, known more simply as rules, are standards that should be followed to ensure the wiki remains in control, and guidelines are suggestions on how to polish articles. Adhering to guidelines is not mandatory but does make the wiki much cleaner and more organized.
Wikis are complicated, as all social projects are, so it's natural that their policies and guidelines won't always apply. Common sense and community consensuses can help determine exceptions. Regardless, pages should always be made as presentable as possible.
The purpose of policies and guidelines is to explain what editors should do when met with ambiguous circumstances. Additionally, editors are assumed to be able to use common sense when contributing to the wiki, such as knowing that the mainspace pages have objective content and that talk pages are the place to discuss topics personally.
To suggest or discuss policies or guidelines, use the proposals page.
