These two policies you saw were retracted because they were released without going through the policy review release process. Moving forward, all of our new moderator policies will be going through the below process to make sure that policies are reviewed and moderators have the opportunity to give feedback on them before they're active. Moderators will get an orange diamond inbox notification when this is posted to the moderator team.
Once the policy is active and announced on MSE, we'll send out another orange diamond notification so mods know it's live. For anyone else, feel free to subscribe to the RSS for the mod-agreement-policy tag to make sure you're not missing these policies when they're public.
So, considering this, your specific request is status-declined because we feel there will be enough notifications through this process already.
Once the policy is drafted, the first step is for the CMs to review it internally - this allows us to catch any issues within the team before showing it to external view. In some cases, reviewing with a single CM may be enough but the entire team should be aware of the policy. Other, more complicated policies, should go through our internal review process.
Mod Council Review
The second group to view the policy will be the Moderator Council.
Once their review is complete, we will make any changes that are necessary or can be made - there are some things that could come up that we may not be able to agree. The goal here is to work together towards the best possible solution.
Moderator Team Review
After the feedback from the Council, we'll make a post on the Mod Team. If there are outstanding things that the Council thought should be changed, we will use the post to explain why they aren't being changed so that the mods understand the reasoning for it.
Once posted on the Mod Team, we will use an orange diamond mod notification with a link to the post so that the mods are aware of the policy and can leave comments/answers.
In many (most) cases, the public documentation will be a post on MSE with the mod-agreement-policy tag. The answer will be policy locked.
In some cases, we may wish to write a help center article instead. In that case, we will edit the Moderator Agreement Policies help center article to add a link to the new help center article.
Once the policy is public, we will edit the Mod Team post to link to the completed policy so that mods can quickly find it from the Team and create another orange diamond notification to let the mods know that the policy is live with a link to the policy.
Hopefully that works for you, if not let us know. It's good to understand moderator workflows as we think about these things moving forward.
