Striking "is considered a standard that all users should follow" seems like a very significant change to this template, not mere semantics, and seems to be prompted by a recent request for the protection and enforcement of a wikifur policy that included this template that, at the time, seemed stable with no significant edits (aside from a typo fix and +categorization) in over a year. Can you show where there is a widespread concern and consensus to make such a significant alteration and/or how/why this change is constructive? --Chibiabos 14:17, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
- I see that the text it should be followed except when consensus dictates otherwise was added in during the same edit. I think that makes more sense and is more closely in line with how we do things on this Wiki. --Douglas Muth 16:50, 4 October 2006 (UTC)
I propose changing the wording of this template slightly to: This page is an official policy on WikiFur. This policy serves as a place to record previous consensus actions, and should be followed except when consensus dictates otherwise. Significant changes to this policy should first be proposed on the dicussion page.
This change removes the bit about statute law, which impeded the flow to my mind, and re-words the final sentence to, I hope, be somewhat clearer and more concise; a link to the talk page there would be good as well. Thoughts? -- Sine 18:17, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
- I like your suggestion and support it. -- JaeSharp 19:20, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
