One of the points that everyone seems to agree that we should work on for the community guidelines are definitions of the different types of vegetarianism, as well as a definition for vegan.

I have included my own in the comments. Other comments, clarifications or definitions are welcome. :)

I like the idea of just using the Vegan Society definition, with perhaps an explenation of the definition. I already mention in the explenation that veganism is not about diet as much as lifestyle, so perhaps there we should reiterate that the primary motivation, according to the original definition is to avoid exploitation of animals? (which is, by itself, an animal rights persepctive...)

And yes, I agree that maybe a definition of animal is worth incorporating -- both to clarify the fact that, yes, bees are animals, as well as to clarify the fact that, yes, humans are animals.
