Wikipedia:Dispute resolution

Disagreements on Wikipedia are normal; editors will frequently disagree with each other, particularly on content decisions. Editors are expected to engage in good faith to resolve their disputes, and must not personalise disputes. Many disputes can be resolved without external input, through gradual editing, discussion, and attempts to understand the legitimate objections of others.

If discussion stalemates, editors may seek outside input to help resolve the dispute. Mediation can help in finding a compromise solution. Discussions can also be advertised to WikiProjects to receive participation from interested uninvolved editors. Other methods of dispute resolution include asking for a third opinion, making a request at an appropriate noticeboard, or opening a request for comment.
