Policies

Main Article: Policy Main

Policy Determination

  • We strive for fairness above all and seek to maintain fairness when writing our policies. This is done by doing the following:
    • Making sure policies don't impede anybody's creative abilities
      • Except in cases where one's creative abilities would cause a detriment to another
    • Making sure policies don't conflict between the various staff teams
    • Making sure everyone can do what they want/need to do with as much ease and comfort as possible
  • We strive for efficiency as a secondary goal:
    • Form over Function is our philosophy
    • "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
    • "If it is broke, don't make it worse."
    • "If it can't be fixed, scrap it and make something better!"
    • "If the couch is in the way, move the fuckin' thing!"
  • Interwoven into the fabrics of all we do, we strive for clarity:
    • “What does a scanner see? I mean, really see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does a passive infrared scanner like they used to use or a cube-type holo-scanner like they use these days, the latest thing, see into me - into us - clearly or darkly? I hope it does see clearly, because I can't any longer these days see into myself. I see only murk. Murk outside; murk inside. I hope, for everyone's sake, the scanners do better. Because if the scanner sees only darkly, the way I myself do, then we are cursed, cursed again and like we have been continually, and we'll wind up dead this way, knowing very little and getting that little fragment wrong too.”
      • ~ A Scanner Darkly, Philip K. Dick
