Mediation Cabal Case

Hello. I am the mediator who has responded to the request for mediation by User:Toure. I think that this situation is getting close to an edit war, but I hope that I can help settle things down and help both parties come to an agreement. First, I would like to establish my neutrality:

  • I come from the UK, and have never read any of Toure's published work, in novel, newspaper, or magazine form.
  • Neither have I ever seen Toure on TV.
  • From the infomation in the article, I don't even have the same taste in music.

I hope that this helps to verify my neutrality.

Now then, I would like to draw both of your attention to WP:BLP, which is a policy on wikipedia which governs the rules about biographies of living people. If you look at the 'Presumption in favor of privacy' section on the page, the first line states,

  • Biographies of living people must be written conservatively and with due regard to the subject's privacy.

It also goes on to say:

  • Material from primary sources should generally not be used. For example, public records may include personal details such as home value, outcomes of civil court cases, traffic citations, arrest records, and vehicles and real estate owned. Use material only from reliable third-party sources.

and

  • ...editors should exercise restraint and include only information relevant to their notability.

May I ask, with this in mind, why, 84.100.38.28, you feel that adding Toure's last name is relevent or important to the article? Thε Halo Θ 14:50, 25 July 2006 (UTC)

This case is now closed, due to inactivity. I would suggest, as I ave written above, that adding Toure's last name is a violation of WP:BLP, and therefore not be put into the article. Thε Halo Θ 11:51, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Proposed move

This template must be substituted. Replace {{Requested move ...}} with {{subst:Requested move ...}}.

  • Oppose. Need reasons why that spelling should be used. Also, xomeone could help proposer of move by creating proper discussion section. Gene Nygaard 09:35, 9 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Oppose I'd agree with Gene Nygaard on this one. There seems little reason for the move. Thε Halo Θ 10:40, 9 September 2006 (UTC)>
  • Support if this is what Toure/é himself uses, presumably to indicate how his name is to be pronounced (assuming it is meant to be pronounced "Tour-ray" or the like!)  Regards, David Kernow 03:07, 10 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Neutral The personality is referred to as "Touré" through the entire article. Title must conform with content. However, I could not verify which one is the correct form (Google and Yahoo render virtually nil results for both forms +).--Húsönd 00:49, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
Support, per Recury.--Húsönd 00:25, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Support, "Touré" is the form he uses on his website. Recury 16:33, 11 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Support "Touré and Toure are different names with different pronunciations. Omitting the accent makes as much a difference as omitting a letter. Touré is the proper spelling of Touré's given name. Toure is an incorrect spelling, though it occurs frequently because many people don't know how to add accents on a computer. At the time the page about Touré was written the Touré page seemed taken and out of respect to the larger Wikipedia mission, the page labelled Touré was not disrupted. However, the page about Touré is incorrect until the page is named Touré. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Toure (talkcontribs)
  • Support Seeing as Toure wants it to be called Touré... Thε Halo Θ 19:15, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

Surname

I have removed Toure's surname from the article for now. Seeing as this falls under the BLP policy, we should take extra care in protecting people's personal information, especially when they have stated that they don't want that information known. I have raised the issue on the BLP noticeboard, so we should receive some feed back and community consensus as to what to do soon. Until that time, please, do not add Toure's last name to the article. Thanks. Thε Halo Θ 09:47, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

As you can see from the discussion on the BLP noticeboard, it is believed that Touré's last name is not relievent to his notability, so there is no need for it to be put into the article. Thε Halo Θ 16:35, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
