Like most wikis, Pikipedia has a set of policies that help organize the wiki, solve conflicts, and maximize the wiki's quality. Policies are standards that should be followed to make sure the wiki does not go out of control.
A wiki is a complicated thing, so it's only expected that the policies won't apply 100% of the time. Common sense and community consensuses can help figure out exceptions.
The purpose of the policies is to explain what to do in ambiguous cases. So, just because a policy doesn't say you should do X, it doesn't mean you should do X – just because there's no policy about writing in all capital letters doesn't mean you should start doing it. In addition, editors are assumed to use a bit of common sense when simply using the site. For instance, the mainspace pages have objective Pikmin content, and talk pages are the place to go to discuss things personally.
Policies and guidelines are decided by Pikipedia's community. To suggest or discuss policies, use Pikipedia:Proposals.
A user proposing a change should explain their reasoning in their proposal. Afterwards, all users of the wiki are welcome to vote on it. As long as there are unresolved problems or worries with the change however, they should be addressed before the proposal can pass. This is all within reason, of course.
After enough time has passed for everyone to have reasonably shared their opinion, if there are no objections, staff members should go ahead and implement the change.
