I propose that the following 15 drafts be made into policies/guidelines:

  1. Policies and guidelines (also contains a summary of all the drafts I'm proposing)
  2. What the RuneScape Players Wiki is not
  3. Citing sources - Citing sources allows people to verify the information written in an article is accurate, while improving the credibility of the wiki.
  4. Images and media policy - The reason all images should have a suitable licensing tag added to them is because without them, we wouldn't know the copyright status of the file. We could be potentially violating copyright by keeping images without a licensing tag.
  5. Manual of Style
  6. Redirects
  7. Criteria for speedy deletion - I suggest that we delay the implementation of criteria number 3 under the "Files" subsection, considering almost all our files at the moment would violate that requirement.
  8. Deletion policy
  9. Proposed deletion - Proposed deletion makes deleting pages which don't fall under the criteria for speedy deletion much quicker, since there is no discussion in the process.
  10. Administrators
  11. AutoWikiBrowser
  12. Civility
  13. Gaming the system
  14. Consensus
  15. Protection policy

I would also like to suggest a change be made to our bot policy:

"Any tasks a bot performs should also get approval" --> "Any fully-automated tasks a bot performs should also get approval". This would ensure users could quickly carry out semi-automated tasks.
