Requests and proposalsRequests for comment (global issues or for other projects)archives
Requests for comment (RFC for short) are processes by which broader input can be requested. This is typically required for policy changes that are broad in scope. It may also be useful to gain wider input regarding conflicts or unresolved issues on other Wikimedia projects with the hopes of obtaining resolution. Add a link to the proposal page or disputed page or create a new subpage requesting comments here (please use {{Rfc subpage}}). Anyone is welcome to give his or her opinion on the requests listed below. See also: all RfC pages and more Wiki-wide elections and votings.
For local Meta-Wiki issues please use the local process Meta:Requests for comment instead.

Relevant policy for the opening, handling, and closure of RFCs can be found at Requests for comment/Policy.
Creating a new request
Create a subpage with a suitable name, for example Requests for comment/Reforming the RFC process and content:
{{rfc subpage |status = |comment = |date = {{subst:CURRENTTIMESTAMP}} <!-- creation date, do **not** change --> }}
Below this describe your issue and submit the edit. The link to your page will automatically appear here, thus do not try to add it manually, but you may have to use the "Purge" link above, otherwise it may take some days until it happens.
