This policy describes what to do when you have a dispute with another editor. See FamilySearch Wiki:Etiquette Guidelines and read the advice from Wikipedia about Staying cool when the editing gets hot.

When disputes arise between community members they are strongly encouraged to talk together and resolve their differences without using Mediation or Arbitration.

Options to explore before requesting formal mediation or as a last resort arbitration include:

  • Ask for a third opinion
  • Ask about the subject
  • Ask about a policy
  • Request a comment
  • Informal mediation
