You can go back to the article by clicking on the article tab (on the left side of the discussion tab).

Comment: Disputes should follow a standardized structure, including argumentation why the commented statement in an article is under dispute. Including the reasoning behind the dispute will make the dispute better to understand and therefore easier to attack or support. The link to the article is helpful, but not always sufficient to understand why the statement is under dispute. Disputes are per definition individual points of view, supported by one or more individuals or groups.

Notation of a non-mixed difference in opinion

--1: What kind of symbols do I have to use, if I only doubt a standpoint but do not have an opposite standpoint, i.e. a non-mixed difference of opinion? Should I still use the attacking argument symbol (red arrow) or the comment symbol (the blue horizontal stripe)? --Sjuurd 16:08, 5 June 2007 (EEST)

--2: Well, we don't currently have arrow of doubt. Maybe this depends how strongly you are in doubt. I would prefer red arrow --Juha Villman 09:35, 11 June 2007 (EEST)

From Intarese: dealing with disputes

Part of this page will address managing disputes in a virtual setting. Please feel free to provide any suggestions related to conflict management in a virtual setting, for example managing disagreement among members of a virtual team. (Sjuurd)

First of all, I would suggest looking at the quite extensive materials available on the Wikipedia page on the topic of resolving disputes. There are some basic guidelines to be found there on resolving disputes, and avoiding them. It is worthy of note, however, that not all virtual settings function in the same way as Wikipedia (where most editors are unknown to one another outside of that virtual environment). The fact that many people working on INTARESE already know one another personally, have met or communicated by telephone may render some of the advice on the Wikipedia site somewhat less useful.
