This is a thread for discussion, documentation, and exploration of topics regarding various current existing processes for these topics: dispute resolution, arbitration, and official processes such as Arbcom, arbitration, etc at the Wikipedias for various languages.

¶As part of the larger context for this new thread, please note the following points:
a) Currently there is no thread devoted to discussing the topic of processes for “dispute resolution” at the various wikipedias;
b) Presumably, and by extension, currently there is no definitive or systematic set of thread, here at MS Forums, for discussing the core topics of relevant procedures, rules, and processes, that shape the processes for editing Wikiepdia.
c) Therefore as a larger suggestion for the MS forums, I would suggest that perhaps we might consider creating a systematic set of topical threads, over the course of time, to discuss and to explore the various core rules, principles and procedures as they currently exist across the various wikipedias.
d) Let me also clarify that we should not create a whole new array of threads simply for the sake of having new threads. however this thread topic is presented both as a topic in its own right, and also as a larger example of how the MS forums as a whole can perhaps seek to eventually encompass and explore all of the core areas of Wikipedia, in a systematic way, however those core areas might be defined.
As part of this, let also assert that I fully welcome the input of the admins here. I would invite their input, if they wish, on the suggestion as to whether a strategy for systematically establishing a set of central threads, for discussion if various core topics might be beneficial, over the long term.
And I would welcome any input, or suggestions, as to how we might define, or delineate a hypothetical set of “core topics” that could eventually cover the vast array of topics that could potentially encompass all of the principles of Wikipedia editing as a whole.
I hope this idea is helpful to the MS Forums community. Thanks!
