To process any change, create a poll in #changes. There are two types of changes the community can request: rule changes and guideline changes. A rule is something an admin must enforce. A guideline is something an admin can choose to enforce.

  • Example of a rule: no pictures of cats are allowed
    • There is no room for interpretation
  • Example of a guideline: content about DSU should be posted in #dsu
    • The admin should use their best judgement about wether to remove the post or direct the user to #dsu
