How to change a policyEdit

Every user is welcome to disagree with policy and attempt to change it. To change a policy:

  1. Go to the talkpage of the policy you wish to change. Add a new section to the talkpage listing why you disagree with the policy, how it would benefit Smashpedia if it were to be changed, and if possible leave the revised version of all parts of the policy you wish to change.

It is probable that other users will wish to revise your proposed revision. If so, other users should list their problems with the proposed revision, why their revision would be better at benefiting the wiki, and their version of the proposed revision.

If a consensus is reached that the policy should be changed, the accepted final revision will replace the old parts of the policies. However, if consensus is not reached, the new policy revision can not replace the old. While a vote may be used to indicate general opinion, a vote is not binding, nor is it indicative of consensus unless unanimous.

Proposing a new policyEdit

Proposing a new Smashpedia policy is a three-step process:

  1. Create a new article in the Smashpedia namespace, with the proposed text of the new policy. Make sure not to add the proposed policy to the Category:Policies category. Add {{Proposed policy}} to the top of the article if you are proposing a new policy; if you are proposing a significant update to a currently vetted policy, use {{Proposed update}} instead.
  2. Add the new article to the list of currently proposed policies above.
  3. On the proposed policy's talkpage, describe why the new policy is needed and why/how it would benefit the wiki.

If a consensus is reached that the policy should be accepted, it can be added to Category:Policies. Unless a consensus is reached, however, the policy will not be considered official. While a vote may be used to indicate general opinion, a vote is not binding, nor is it indicative of consensus unless unanimous.
