All users are expected to adhere to the policies of the RuneScape Classic Wiki while editing on the RuneScape Classic Wiki. If you disagree with any policy, feel free to discuss changes on the Forums.
Policies have wide acceptance among editors and describe standards that all users should normally follow. All policy pages can be found at Category:Policies.
Guidelines are sets of best practices that are supported by consensus. Editors should attempt to follow guidelines, though they are best treated with common sense, and occasional exceptions may apply. Guideline pages can be found in Category:Guidelines.
Essays are the opinion or advice of an editor or group of editors, for which widespread consensus has not been established. They do not speak for the entire community and may be created and written without approval. Essays that the author does not want others to edit, or that are found to contradict widespread consensus, belong in the user namespace. Essays are listed in Category:Essays.
