Wikipedia:Resolving disputes contains the official policy on dispute resolution for English Wikipedia. Arbitration is generally the last step for user conduct-related disputes that cannot be resolved through discussion on noticeboards or by asking the community its opinion on the matter.

This page is the central location for discussing the various requests for arbitration processes. Requesting that a case be taken up here isn't likely to help you, but editors active in the dispute resolution community should be able to assist.

Does every domain language of wikipedia has this kind of arbitration procedure/committee or it is optional for them ? For those which do not have, how resolution of conflicts is solved ? PaulRamone2 (talk) 18:24, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Conflict resolution procedures are set up independently in each project and may differ considerably. Many of the larger ones have something similar to Arbcom though. If you go to the WP:ARBCOM page, the list of foreign-language interwiki lings (at the left of the screen, under "languages") will give you a rough idea. Fut.Perf. 18:38, 17 May 2015 (UTC)


Is this (ARCA) the place to seek overturning of Arb restrictions? GoodDay (talk) 14:22, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Sort of. It's the place to argue for changes to the wording of remedies, but not to (for example) lodge appeals against bans. What are you looking to overturn? -- Euryalus (talk) 14:55, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I'm planning on getting a 3 yr old Arb restriction lifted from me. GoodDay (talk) 15:47, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, this would be a good place. -- Euryalus (talk) 02:49, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. GoodDay (talk) 23:48, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
