Memory Alpha
This page describes one of Memory Alpha's policies and guidelines.

Please read through the policy below to familiarize yourself with our common practices and rules.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or complaints, please post them on the talk page.

Any new suggestions or clarifications added to our policies are temporarily listed on this page. Add it to your watchlist to stay up-to-date.


Memory Alpha:Deletion policy 
Added "Additional notes" to immediate deletion rules, mainly reordering. Especially clarified:
Memory Alpha:Policies and guidelines 
Not a policy change per se, but an organization. The Template {{policy}} has been created for all pages which list official MA policies, and a Category:Memory Alpha policies and guidelines is added to them via the Template.
  • Policy pages should be identified by the policy template unless there is a special case involved (I can't think of any right now, but address it on the individual page's talk).
  • Discussion about "blanket" protecting various other policy pages could commence at Memory Alpha talk:Policies and guidelines if it is deemed necessary.
