This question was asked on meta.codereview.SE for deciding on a new site policy. There was not much for a response but all the response agreed on one thing.
Now there seem to be people saying that the OP(a moderator) didn't have the authority to decide on a new site policy like here. I wanted to know how to properly deal with such situations on a new website? There has to be some way to properly decide a new policy. How? More discussion? What if people don't participate on meta? Then what? Start using that policy and redirecting people to te original discussion asking them to post their opinions?
What is the proper way to decide on the site policy without dividing the community? Who can the final arbiter in this case?
