Please read before posting[edit]

Hi! I'm Carrie. It's nice to meet you.

If you want to say anything to me, feel free. I'd be delighted to hear from you. I will try to respond promptly, but of course I am not online 24/7.

I prefer to keep the whole of a conversation in one place. If you say something here, I will respond here. If I start a conversation on your talk page, please reply there; I will be watching that page until the discussion is finished, so there's no need to worry about letting me know.

Leaving Wikipedia[edit]

Hi Carrie

Thank you for reply.

Thank You[edit]

Hi, I would just say thanks a lot for your efforts in the issue regarding the article about Jehovah's Witnesses. I must admit I didn't get as much out of the discussion itself as I hoped, as the final result was minor changes, but I learned a lot through the process about sourcing and what to accept and conclude out of those, and not. I'm most active at the Wikipedia in Norwegian Bokmål, so you won't see me bothering you to much over here... Grrahnbahr (talk) 22:55, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

No problem; I'm glad I could help. CarrieVS (talk) 09:09, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for the reply.

One learns from past experience.

This includes not providing any information to Wikipedia in the future whatsoever.

Sorry you decided to throw your toys out of the pram, John. But, you were correctly warned about your behaviour. Kudos to you, CarrieVS, for your informed advice to this user. It's a shame he chose not to follow it. --Drm310 (talk) 07:49, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

DRN organisers[edit]

Hello. I am just letting you know that I've made a proposal to create a rotating DRN organiser-style role that would help with the day-to-day running of DRN. As you are a listed volunteer at DRN, I'd appreciate your thoughts on this, and the other open proposals at DRN. You can read more about it here. Thanks!

Was there a reason[edit]

... why you posted something on my talk page?Djflem (talk) 17:34, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Yes. There was a thread opened at the dispute resolution noticeboard listing you as a participant. I volunteer there, so when I saw a new thread I checked to make sure everything was filled in properly, and that all the listed participants had been notified. They hadn't, since the bot that usually does it is down, so I did it myself, as per the usual DRN procedure.
I see that someone's messed up the DRN-notice template, which is why that other bit was in there - might be my own fault as I forgot to substitute the template. I've fixed that. CarrieVS (talk) 18:01, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

DRN needs your help![edit]

Hi there. I've noticed it's been a while since you've been active at DRN, and we could really use your help! DRN is going to undergo some changes soon, so it'd really be great if our backlog is cleared before the start of August and we have as many people on board to help with the changes (they include a move to subpages and the creation of a rotating "co-ordinator" role to help manage things day-to-day. Hope to see you soon! Steven Zhang Help resolve disputes! 11:10, 15 July 2013 (UTC)

DRN- Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/2013 in British music[edit]

I believe the dispute centers on a very strict interpretation of MOS, but is not taking into account that the MOS is not an absolute and the dispute seems to be pretty much a criticism of one editor. I feel that the case was opened prematurely as there is no extensive discussion. If you object I will hold on closing the case. I will also be adding a thread at the DR/N talk page.--Amadscientist (talk) 04:39, 20 July 2013 (UTC)

The new face of DRN: CarrieVS[edit]


Recently the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard underwent some changes in how it operates. Part of the change involved a new list of volunteers with a bit of information about the people behind the names.

You are listed as a volunteer at DRN currently, to update your profile is simple, just click here. Thanks, Cabe6403(TalkSign) 17:06, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

Your involvement with DRN[edit]

Hi there, I noticed that you haven't been as active at DRN as you were before. DRN has been a bit backlogged lately and we could use some extra hands. We have updated our volunteer list to a new format, Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteers (your name is still there under the old format if you haven't updated it) and are looking into ways to make DRN more effective and more rewarding for volunteers (your input is appreciated!). If you don't have much time to volunteer at the moment, that's fine too, just move your name to the inactive list (you're free to add yourself back to active at any time). Hope to see you again soon :) Steven Zhang (talk) 13:13, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

DRN needs assistance[edit]

You are receiving this message because you have listed yourself as a volunteer at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard.

We have a backlog of cases there which need volunteer attention. If you have time available, please take one or more of these cases.

If you do not intend to take cases or help with the administration of DRN on a regular basis, or if you do not wish to receive further notices of this nature, please remove your username from the volunteer list. If you later decide to resume activities at DRN you may relist your name at that time.

Best regards, TransporterMan 15:52, 8 January 2015 (UTC) (current DRN coordinator)

Help needed at DRN[edit]

You are receiving this message because you are signed up as a volunteer at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. We have a number of pending requests which need a volunteer to address them. Unless you are an inexperienced volunteer who is currently just watching DRN to learn our processes, please take a case. If you do not see yourself taking cases in the foreseeable future, please remove yourself from the volunteer list so that we can have a better idea of the size of our pool of volunteers; if you do see yourself taking cases, please watchlist the DRN page and keep an eye out to see if there are cases which are ready for a volunteer. We have recently had to refuse a number of cases because they were listed for days with no volunteer willing to take them, despite there being almost 150 volunteers listed on the volunteer page.

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

DRN help needed and volunteer roll call[edit]

You are receiving this message because you have listed yourself on the list of volunteers at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteering#List of the DRN volunteers.

First, assistance is needed at DRN. We have recently closed a number of cases without any services being provided for lack of a volunteer willing to take the case. There are at least three cases awaiting a volunteer at this moment. Please consider taking one.

Second, this is a volunteer roll call. If you remain interested in helping at DRN and are willing to actively do so by taking at least one case (and seeing it through) or helping with administrative matters at least once per calendar month, please add your name to this roll call list. Individuals currently on the principal volunteer list who do not add their name on the roll call list will be removed from the principal volunteer list after June 30, 2016 unless the DRN Coordinator chooses to retain their name for the best interest of DRN or the encyclopedia. Individuals whose names are removed after June 30, 2016, should feel free to re-add their names to the principal volunteer list, but are respectfully requested not to do so unless they are willing to take part at DRN at least one time per month as noted above. No one is going to be monitoring to see if you live up to that commitment, but we respectfully ask that you either live up to it or remove your name from the principal volunteer list.
