    Now that the standards are updated and replaced, I think it's time for a rewrite of the Main Policy as well. The document is old, and needs some serious rewriting. I have already created a new version with better wording, and a neater layout, but we need to discuss what actually needs to go on this document and what doesn't. There are a lot of things that are not on the policies that should be there, and there are a lot of things that are there that should not be.

    You can view the new policy suggestions here. Please help me make them better!

    • I think it's good that you've done something about it. Good Job.

    • SFW Main Policy:

      Section III: Users

      1. ) If multiple Users (at least two) known for being involved in starting fights (with each other or in general) are communicating as opposing sides over a topic, a User must notify an admin so that the admin may monitor the issue.
      2. ) If Users start fighting, an admin must intervene immediately and diffuse the situation. Non-admin Users are permitted to do the same, and if they are experienced and/or know at least one of the users involved in the fight, are expected to intervene.
      3. ) If the fighting continues, an admin is permitted to ban whoever they deem responsible.
      4. ) If a fight cannot be dropped, those involved are permitted to instead take it to another location, away from the SFW.
      5. ) If the fight started due to an unprovoked verbal attack from one User, that user must be banned. The time of the ban is up to the discretion of the notified admin.

      Section III.1: Elections

      Every so often, Sonic Fanon Wiki will host an election to give user the opportunity to run for a new ranking on the wiki. In order to be allowed to run in said elections, however, users must fit into a variety of qualifications which show that the user is right for the position.

      • Administrators
        • Must have at least 1000 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
        • Must have been active on the wiki for at least 6-8 weeks. For users who make new accounts, time spent on the previous account counts to time on the wiki.
        • If the user has been banned for vandalism, spam, or trolling, they must wait four weeks after the ban is lifted before they are viable for adminship. This time does not count to time spent active on the wiki. The ban does not count if it was unjustified; such distinction is up to the discretion of the current admins.
        • Nominee must know and adhere to the policies of the wiki, and must actively enforce these rules as an admin.
        • The user must be capable of being respectful and civilized to all Users, and must do so.
        • Any admin who is legitimately stripped of his/her rank two or more times will not be allowed to run for administration again.
      • Bureaucracy
        • Must have at least 7000 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
        • Must have been active on the wiki for at least 3 months. Time spent on previous accounts does not count.
        • User must have at least 6 weeks of adminship experience.
        • If the user has been justly banned twice, they are immediately exhempt from any bureaucracy nomination.
        • Rules 4 and 5 for Administration Qualification also must be adhered to for Bureaucracy Qualifications.
      • Chat Moderators
        • Must have at least 850 constructive edits, meaning no spam or vandalism.
        • Must have been active at least 6 weeks.
        • Must not have been previously kickbanned from chat (for a time of 12 hours or more) more than twice.
        • Must understand, follow, and enforce all SFW policies while on chat.
        • Must not be biased or make disparaging or demeaning insults towards other Users on chat.
        • The user must be capable of being respectful and civilized to all Users, and must do so.

      To recap: any users who do not meet the above qualifications will not be allowed to run in the corresponding election(s).


      These are some of the things I'd noticed were not on your version of the policies. We could probably start by sorting through these.

      and I purposefully left out the corruption call because Xi was already working on revising that.

    • Speaking of Elections, when is the next one coming up? I noticed that I could qualify for running for the administrator position.

      The first part about users is something that should be obvious to anyone who is elected to be an admin. I see no reason for it to be explicitly defined in the policies.

      My response to each of the parts to that section:

      1: Why should admins have to monitor every disagreement between these users?
      2: This is an admin duty, not something that belongs in the general policies for the wiki. It's also something that should be near-instinct for any normal educated human.
      3: Derp
      4: What is this, I don't even. You either stop fighting or you get banned. Whatever happens elsewhere stays elsewhere. It should not be defined in the policies like this, for it makes this wiki look even more childish than all the recolors.
      5: Also derp

      Now, about the second section for elections. I believe that these need to go in a separate document that explains elections and the process properly, not in the main policy document. I would be happy to discuss them here, however I do want to move them.

      I apologize for any attitude in this post, and it is not directed at any individual. I'm not having a good day so far and this is honestly how I feel about these.

    • Don't worry, I more or less expected this kind of response. I had a feeling some of these might get shot down anyway, I was just curious to see exactly how they would.

    • Now that the irrelevant conversation is gone from this thread, is it safe to say that I can put this up for a vote soon? Or do people still want to voice ideas and opinions on this?

      I think that we should go ahead and put this up for a vote.
