There are very few policies which apply across all of Wikia. These can be found on the Community Central Wiki at Wikia:Category:Policy.

Other policies and guidelines for Scratchpad should be decided by the Scratchpad community. It’s generally best to keep these as simple as possible, and not to introduce too many rules. A growing wiki can usually do well with a few simple policies/guidelines and a lot of goodwill and cooperation.

Adding {{policy}} to any policy pages will add them to the policies category, which is found at Category:Scratchpad policy.

Adding {{guideline}} to any guideline pages will add them to the guidelines category, which is found at Category:Scratchpad guidelines
