There is a tiny link to Help:Contents which links to our policies on the main page; however, I doubt most new users would know to look there or that we even have policies. I'm simply suggesting that we have add a straightforward and easy to find link to Category:Policies to the main page.

I agree too. Lots of users who have been blocked/banned complain that they don't know the rules. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  19:15, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Support - Would hopefully enlighten users who claim they don't know about any rules. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 19:25, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Support/suggestion - Users already get welcomed with a message that includes a link to the policies. I support this idea tho, because brand new users and non-users(IP) can't find the policies easy, nor do they look for them. I hope that, by adding the link to the mainpage, the amount of rulebreakers will reduce. I propose this change in Maintop;

Support - When a user does something as a new account, and didn't read the policies, someone might warn them. This wouldn't be very inviting to new users to see, so having a link to the policies on the homepage might work very well. ~MuzTalk 17:46, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Support - I always have to go to recent changes to find this for a quick reference. It would make it easier.

Comment - So is someone going to go ahead with this or what? ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  21:15, 5 June 2009 (UTC)

Closed - Policies link has been added to Maintop. The link will appear on the mainpage after the timeout period; in the mean time, it is viewable here. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:56, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
