== First resort: talk to the other parties involved ==
The first resort in resolving almost any conflict is to discuss the issue on a [[Wikipedia:talk page|talk page]]. Either contact the other party on that user's talk page, or use the talk page associated with the article in question. Never carry on a dispute on the article page itself. When discussing an issue, [[Wikipedia:Staying cool when the editing gets hot|stay cool]] and [[Wikipedia:No personal attacks|don't mount personal attacks]]. Take the other person's perspective into account and try to reach a compromise. Assume that the other person is acting in [[good faith]] unless you have clear evidence to the contrary.
Both at this stage and throughout the dispute resolution process, talking to other parties is not simply a formality to be satisfied before moving on to the next forum. Failure to pursue discussion in good faith shows that you are trying to escalate the dispute instead of resolving it. This will make people less sympathetic to your position and may prevent you from effectively using later stages in dispute resolution. In contrast, sustained discussion and serious [[negotiation]] between the parties, even if not immediately successful, shows that you are interested in finding a solution that fits within Wikipedia policies. For additional ideas, see [[Wikipedia:Negotiation]].
