|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.

Question About Discussion in Contentious Topic Areas
Now available at WP:ARCA.
I don't know if I should ask this question here, or go through a more formal request at ARCA, but this is about moderating discussions of contentious topics. If the topic is in a Contentious Topic area, such as Eastern Europe or India and Pakistan, and I tell the participants that the topic has been designated as a contentious topic, is that considered sufficient notice for a subsequent report, if the moderated discussion fails? I think that the editors should be considered to have knowledge of the restrictions at that point, but I am asking. Robert McClenon (talk) 03:36, 12 May 2023 (UTC)
Does EE include Sino-Soviet border conflict
Hi, a clarification as to "broadly construed" in respect to WP:ARBEE and Russia/Soviet Union. Does this capture articles about the Soviet Union in a global context - specifically, the Sino-Soviet border conflict and like? Please ping in response.

Asking at WT:AE. Cinderella157 (talk) 09:45, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
- @Cinderella157: For an informal answer, no. That's got nothing to do with the geographic region of interest (eastern Europe). Russia is included usually only for the parts of Russia that are of interest there. For a formal answer, you will need to ask at WP:ARCA. Izno (talk) 14:11, 21 May 2023 (UTC)
