This page documents a procedural policy of Wikipedia. This page in a nutshell: Wikipedia’s policies and guidelines are pages that serve to document the good practices that are accepted in the Wikipedia community. This policy describes how WP policies and guidelines should normally be developed and maintained. Wikipedia policies and guidelines are developed by the community to describe best practices, clarify principles, resolve conflicts, and otherwise further our goal of creating a free, reliable encyclopedia. There is no need to read any policy or guideline pages to start editing. The five pillars is a popular summary of the most pertinent principles. Although Wikipedia generally does not employ hard-and-fast rules, Wikipedia’s policy and guideline pages describe its principles and agreed-upon best practices.
Policies are standards that all users should normally follow, and guidelines are generally meant to be best practices for following those standards in specific contexts. This policy page specifies the community standards related to the organization, life cycle, maintenance of, and adherence to policies, guidelines, and related pages. Wikipedia is operated by the not-for-profit Wikimedia Foundation, which reserves certain legal rights—see the Wikimedia Foundation’s Policies page for a list of its policies. See also Role of Jimmy Wales. Policies have wide acceptance among editors and describe standards that all users should normally follow.
All policy pages are in Wikipedia:List of policies and guidelines and Category:Wikipedia policies. Guidelines are sets of best practices that are supported by consensus. Editors should attempt to follow guidelines, though they are best treated with common sense, and occasional exceptions may apply. Essays are the opinion or advice of an editor or group of editors for which widespread consensus has not been established. They do not speak for the entire community and may be created and written without approval. Essays that the author does not want others to edit, or that are found to contradict widespread consensus, belong in the user namespace. These other pages are not policies or guidelines, although they may contain valuable advice or information.
Conversely, those who violate the spirit of a rule may be reprimanded even if no rule has technically been broken. Whether a policy or guideline is an accurate description of best practice is determined by the community through consensus. On discussion pages and in edit summaries, shortcuts are often used to refer to policies and guidelines. For example, WP:NOR, WP:NPOV, and WP:LIVE. Similar shortcuts are sometimes also used for other types of project page. Enforcement on Wikipedia is similar to other social interactions.
