It would be helpful to make it a rule if that is what they are.

That sounds bad, and perhaps the page needs to be updated. What was the guidance you followed which got you in hot water?

Rules are knowledge: established steps to accomplish specific tasks under well-defined conditions. Best Practices are wisdom: the reasoning behind the rules, so that an editor can make as informed a decision as possible when a judgment call is needed--that 0.1% of situations that the rules did not anticipate.

At least, that is what the document was originally intended to be. Perhaps some parts of it have become so specific and/or thorough that they really ought to be considered rules.

I suggest changing the "Best Practices" to "rules".

I made a mistake described in the best practices, and my editing was suspended due to the mistake.

It would be helpful to make it a rule if that is what they are.
