Users must have made at least one edit or discussions post prior to the start of the vote.
The procedure for proposing new policies and guidelines or changing existing ones is to create a topic in the Forum:Wiki discussion space. Once the discussion has led to a final draft, a vote will be called in the Forum:Wiki proposals and applications space. The vote needs to run for a week at a minimum.
The administrators may veto a policy, this should only be done sparingly and for valid reasons. Aside from the normal procedure, the administrators may "decree" policies or guidelines. This should only be done with consensus among administrators and in cases where community consensus cannot be reached but a policy or guideline is needed. Changes to decreed policies and guidelines can be suggested by anyone through the procedure detailed above.
Ten votes are required for a vote to be valid.
A simple majority is sufficient to pass.
