The process for maintaining and updating the [[Definition]] itself is simple:
* Make your desired changes to [[Definition/Unstable]]. If you are uncertain, you can suggest changes on the [[Talk:Definition/ Unstable|discussion page]] first.
* If the changes are minor (typos, errors, etc.), you can directly notify [[moderators|a moderator]], and he will update the stable version.
* Otherwise, it is always a good idea to explain what you have done on the discussion page, and to wait for consensus to develop.
* Only if a consensus is visible, the stable version will be updated.
But what if a consensus cannot be found about a change? Then, more frequently than not, the change will not be made. The wiki experience shows that consensus can often be achieved in small groups. Should there, however, be a very clear split between two groups, either in its emotionality or in the number of people involved, it may be desirable to call for a vote. In that case, all contributors who have made meaningful edits to the definition ( stable or unstable) will be eligible to vote. The voting method used will normally be [[w:approval voting|approval voting]], except in cases of simple yes/ no votes.
Extreme changes which are counter to the philosophy with which this definition was started can be vetoed by the [[moderators]] as a last resort.
Other pages in this wiki are free for anyone to edit without special procedures; this may change over time for selected pages, but in general, we will try to keep this wiki as open as possible.
