I edited some of the Webmaster Policy stuff, but am now wondering whether I should have. Please feel free to revert anything I did.
It is a bit confusing to me, and after looking at that page as a whole, it occurred to me that it seems to have been intended to function as a specific and complete, static policy..... rather than a "policy Wiki" that we all work together to modify and refine.
Since both concepts seem valuable: the examples is good, and the Wiki approach is fundamental to this site.....
I was wondering if perhaps you couldn't post it as a reference. You might write a brief Wiki intro to a general topic of church web or digital communications policy and then reference this text as an example of such a policy. I think you could make the reference either by posting it somewhere else and linking to it (that would prevent bumblers like me from performing Wiki edits) or put the policy in a distinctive quoted section or something like that (I'm not refined enough on MediaWiki syntax to know how or if that's a doable thing). I'm also open to other ideas....
In any case, I don't think this example policy should be presented in a way that might make it appear to be authoritative or definitive for all UU's or UUWiki visitors. The text seems crafted to address some specific, subjective circumstances and philosophies. It seemed to do that quite well, and I think it works fine as an example. But, I don't think it's comprehensive enough or flexible enough to either serve as a general guide or stand alone on a Wiki page.

I just posted some material I thought might be useful. Please do whatever you'd like with it. - Margy
Not meaning to discourage you... I think we are all mostly amateurs here. (This is the first Wiki I've contributed to and I'm still feeling my way around.)
I wasn't sure what your expectations for your contribution were. I'd felt inspired to contribute to the topic, but I think I may have messed it up a bit. ( I'm not sure modifying the body of topic your post was the best approach. Thankfully the Wiki makes it easy to reverse changes.)
I'll see if I can come up with an approach that better preserves your contribution.

I'm not discouraged, it's just that I've written so much over the years that I'm not attached to what I write. Feel free to improve it, change it, whatever!
