On Sarkarverse, formal dispute resolution is a last resort. Typically, disputes can be resolved by courteous and constructive dialogue among editors. The rational solution usually satisfies everyone to some extent. However, in rare cases, for example, edit warring or some other disruptive activity, administrator intervention might be required. Note: Please do not seek administrator intervention without having first made a good-faith effort to resolve your issue through direct dialogue.
Administrator rulings and appeal process
Administrator rulings may be appealed to a bureaucrat; however, the time required for processing such an appeal is indeterminate. Until and unless an administrator ruling is modified or overturned by a bureaucrat, the administrator ruling is binding on all Sarkarversians. A bureaucrat ruling (whether on first instance or appeal) is deemed to be both binding and final. Bureaucrat rulings can only be modified or overturned by the founder or a majority of bureaucrats, but there is no formal appeal process for such an event.
