On Wikipedia, processes are the patterns and the methods of routine and semi-routine actions. It is a technical, methodical, and semi-formal means of accomplishing goals and resolving disputes. These processes are deferential to policies and overlap with guidelines.[why?]

Exact processes are subjective. Editors often express distinct patterns and methods. At the lowest level, editors are given the greatest discretion over the exact means of accomplishing a goal. As interests grows, disputes are fostered. Formal process becomes essential in resolving these conflicts.[how?]

Article-making is a loose process beginning with creation and continuing to a featured article review; it may in some cases be deleted.

Articles and groups of articles are tagged into semi-hierarchical categories, and grouped into portals.
