Policy and guideline pages should:
* '''be clear'''. Avoid esoteric
* '''be as concise as possible—but no more concise.''' Verbosity is not a reliable defense against misinterpretation. Omit needless words. Direct, concise writing may be more clear than rambling examples. Footnotes and links to other pages may be used for further clarification.
* '''emphasize the spirit of the rule.''' Expect editors to use common sense. If the spirit of the rule is clear, say no more.
