Possible template for policy pages--but what looks best?

I was about to ask this on one user's wall, but I decided to make a blog post to perhaps garner more attention from more people. (It's not "big" enough for a whole forum thread, though, I feel, so...)

I've been working on a potential template for the top of policy pages at User:Citrusellaeditswikis/Template playground/WikiPolicy. But I'm not sure which looks best. There's a Calhoun themed one and a Vanellope themed one.

SC 4 What's the first rule of Hero's Duty?

This page describes a policy at the Wreck-It Ralph Wiki. Policies are widely-accepted rules that users are expected to follow under normal circumstances. If you want to change to the rules, any change should have a consensus, or the agreement of several editors, before being added.

This one has a bit of a "rules" theme, as you can see.

Vanellope8bit Welcome to my home!

This page describes a policy at the Wreck-It Ralph Wiki. Policies are widely-accepted rules that users are expected to follow under normal circumstances. If you want to change to the rules, any change should have a consensus, or the discussion and agreement of several editors, before being added.

This one matches the "branding" (if you will) of the community corner message visible in the recent activity page, a message currently talking about policy as well.

The wording of both was adapted from Wikipedia's policy template. The consensus line, while not hard-and-fast, has been kept even though we don't have a written consensus guideline to alert users that they shouldn't usually just, say, edit the policy out of nowhere to include something they want (even a good something sometimes) without talking to other editors about it first.

I think it would be beneficial to place this on the policy pages (though perhaps not the listing page, if only because that doesn't really describe policy, it just lists them (that and its opening paragraph is pretty much the template in more words)).

Anything is subject to change here, and feel free to suggest changes I didn't even mention!

Thoughts?
