Diagramme of hierarchy?
- There's different roles but they don't form a hierarchy. Dmcq (talk) 19:11, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

An Act of Wiki
I posted an explanation on the talk page. Comment there if you like. In short, an "Act of Wiki" might be required to set a guideline, but maybe not, and also, no one should expect that an "Act of Wiki" is a requirement for anything less than a guideline.
- @Bluerasberry: As far as I know, Wikipedia does not yet have a formal process for amendments to its policies and guidelines. Since Wikipedia's policies are only semi-protected, they are potentially vulnerable to conflict-of-interest editing and vandalism. Jarble (talk) 03:58, 21 April 2018 (UTC)
- @Jarble: Yes, I think there is no process. I expected that there was and when I failed to find one I drafted out that page. I did not propose a process, but only proposed that the process be called an "act of wiki". If anyone ever does have a process or the need arises then at least there is that page to read to confirm that no one has articulated a process and to start a conversation.
