The PESWiki policies are our plan of action to guide decisions and our actions. The policies include the identification of our programs and priorities, those which we have choosen on the basis of the impact they have. PESWiki policies in short can be understood as management and administrative mechanisms arranged to reach the explicit goal of PowerPedia:Free energy. Every current PESWiki policy falls into one of the following categories:

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[2]: which topics are welcomed on PESWiki and give quality and naming standards.

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[3]: standards for behavior on PESWiki to make it a pleasant experience for everyone.

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4]: what action authorised users can take to enforce other policies and the fraught area of deleting articles that are considered undesirable.

There was an error working with the wiki: Code[5]: law-based rules about what material may be used here, and remedies for misuse.

The regulatory policies limit discretion of individual editors. Editors who disregard these policies may be dealt with in accordance with our policies, or may be threatened with sanctions. The PESWiki policies are dynamic they are not just static lists of goals or laws. The policy are blueprints.
