The Olive Branch: A Dispute Resolution Newsletter (Issue #1)
Welcome to the first edition of The Olive Branch. This will be a place to semi-regularly update editors active in dispute resolution (DR) about some of the most important issues, advances, and challenges in the area. You were delivered this update because you are active in DR, but if you would prefer not to receive any future mailing, just add your name to this page.
In this issue:
- Background: A brief overview of the DR ecosystem.
- Research: The most recent DR data
- Survey results: Highlights from Steven Zhang's April 2012 survey
- Activity analysis: Where DR happened, broken down by the top DR forums
- DR Noticeboard comparison: How the newest DR forum has progressed between May and August
- Discussion update: Checking up on the Wikiquette Assistance close debate
- Proposal: It's time to close the Geopolitical, ethnic, and religious conflicts noticeboard. Agree or disagree?

Hi. When you recently edited Doolittle Report, 1954, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page The Doolittle Report (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.
- Note: the disambiguation link was intentional as it is referring to other Doolittle reports. I guess in this situation it often becomes a category; but a Disambig. Page is more suitable in this case. Mediation4u (chat) nb: editing is fun 09:28, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
Hey there, Mediation. Can you explain what happened at this submission? I think it was just copied, right? I just don't see why you didn't move it, which is quicker and cleaner. :P In general, we move the submission once we decide to create it so the history stays.

- In the past I've had the move button available, and get the chance to give it a new name before creation - which would have worked in this case. It all works usually in a "wizard-like" way and moves across the timestamped AfC template to the talk page, preserves history, etc.
- However for some reason the move button was not click-able for me this time. Am I missing some permissions? Or did I miss a step this time which enables the "move" link for me usually?
- So instead, I followed the instructions >>here<<. Where I thought the move was done by copy-paste. and I moved the TS across manually, as the preload talk was also not available.
- It's left at AfC review stage >>here<< if an Admin wants to go ahead and delete Doolittle Report, 1954, create it as another page, e.g., Doolittle Report (1954) then fix the link on The Doolittle Report disambig page to point to that new page. Then history will be preserved and also red links tidied. Mediation4u (talk) 09:34, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
- Hmm...that's odd. Well, do you use a script? There's a great one I've copied below - just paste it into your .js file - that makes it incredibly easy to review submission. Right under the normal 'Move' button will be a 'Review' button. Click that, and it will give you four choices: accept, decline, comment, or mark as in use. All but the in use button have separate submenus for things like explaining your decline reasoning, putting templates on the talk page (if you accept), and stuff like that. Whenever you decline it automatically notifies the submittor, and when you accept it notifies them, creates a talk page, and updates that "Recently created AfC's" page. Pretty useful. I'll go ahead and try to move the Doolittle page. Dunno if it will makes a difference, but it really can't hurt. Thanks for the answer :) Nolelover Talk·Contribs 13:44, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Meditation4u, there were a couple of issues with your review of this DYK nomination, most notably your edit summary, which seemed to contradict the review proper. Can you please address these, and give an icon that matches both new text and edit summary? Many thanks. (Under the circumstances, I didn't feel I could promote the hook into a prep area at the time, but would be happy to do so once the article is approved definitively.)

- I think my edit summary was optimistic and written before I got cold feet. The article may or may not be good enough for the main page. It is the weakest I have reviewed so far, so I think it is best taken up with the experts at WT:DYK for a third opinion. A worthy cause, but may need a bit more polish for the main page.
