I have asked a few times where the Arqade site policy states different things. Many of these times, the response is a link to a Meta discussion. I realize that the Meta is the place where the site's policy gets made and is intended to exists so we can smooth out the rules of the site as well as create new ones (among other reasons).
However, if we continually are pointing to Meta for our site policy, then when does a Meta become official policy? Is any Meta with a positive score supposed to be taken as official or does it need to be above a certain number? What if 2 answers have the same score and yet contradict? What happens when mods disagree on policies derived from meta discussions?
On a side note, should there be a link to meta-decided policies in an easy-to-access area for new users? (If this should be a different meta it can be moved)
