The community of the Final Fantasy Wiki has developed several policies and guidelines over time, which exist to clarify standards and resolve conflicts. These should normally be followed by editors in most cases, although exceptions may arise when policies are too rigid to follow, although in these cases, amendments to the policies and guidelines over creation of exceptions are preferred.

Policies and guidelines exist to help the wiki and its editors, not to create needless bureaucracy. They are not to be taken as set-in-stone or as obstructions, and may change at any point when there is demonstrable consensus to support doing so.
