Clearly, based on recent events, we need to start laying out a defined policy specifically for the archives
'''Archives policies''' in general are statements issued by Bulbagarden Archives that have varying scope and power. They fall into four categories:
* Policies - these are strongly binding recommendations and can be considered law.
* Guidelines - these are non-binding recommendations for administrators and users.
* Processes - these outline formal processes on Bulbagarden Archives such as dispute resolution.
* Statements - these are official statements on things such as fair use.

Please also review the policies of [[bp:Bulbapedia:Policy|Bulbapedia]] and [[n:Bulbanews:Policy|Bulbanews]] appropriately.
