Occasionally administrators and bureaucrats will create new policies or alter existing policies without going through the official policy proposal phase. Usually this will only be done for minor or urgent changes.

In addition, if it is clear that a policy proposal will, or will not, pass, an administrator or bureaucrat may propose it be closed through an administrative vote. When an administrator wants to close a policy proposal early, they can open a new section at the bottom of the proposal motioning to close it as either successful or unsuccessful. If a majority of administrators and bureaucrats vote in favour of this, the motion will be successful.

Any policy or amendment made this way would be subject to the usual recall processes.
