What is sasCommunity Policy?
How does a contributor know that their contribution is acceptable to the sasCommunity? This is what sasCommunity Policy is for. It allows contributors to know what to contribute and what they should not, how to contribute, when and where to do so, and why contribute. In essence, such policy sets out the rules or guidelines that contributors should follow. In many respects policy documents the sasCommunity.org wiki rules of behaviour for contributors, or in other words, etiquette. - Cameron (talk) 18:33, 20 April 2014 (CDT)
What is Policy?
What does Policy include?
Perhaps the best way to understand what policy can include is by considering how others deal with policy for a wiki. For example, Wikipedia policies cover a wide range of issues. Interestingly, Wikipedia has both policies and guidelines. Some of these are enforced quite strictly and formally, while others are treated much more informally, or are considered as suggested good practice amongst a range of alternatives. - Cameron (talk) 18:33, 20 April 2014 (CDT)
