Hi, Logician, I'm the current DRN Coordinator (and one of the founders of that noticeboard). With only 34 edits at Wikipedia, unless you can demonstrate that you have edited extensively at Wikipedia prior to adopting this username, I'm going to respectfully request that you stand down and allow a more experienced editor to take the Argument from authority case. Extensive experience with editing Wikipedia and extensive knowledge of Wikipedia's existing policies and guidelines and unwritten practices are needed to mediate cases at DRN in an effective manner. If you are willing to stand down, please post a note there saying that you're withdrawing at the case. To gain more experience in dispute resolution, in addition to doing a good bit of general editing, working at Third Opinion for 20-30 opinions is an excellent training ground since Third Opinions are not tiebreakers and do not "count" towards consensus. Thank you for wanting to work in dispute resolution: We really appreciate it (and need the help, too). Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 19:42, 6 January 2016 (UTC) (current DRN Coordinator)
- I am willing to take the dispute. I came here primarily to offer some advice, but I see that you have been requested to let another volunteer handle this case. Robert McClenon (talk) 19:41, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
DRN help needed and volunteer roll call
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.
Please stop attacking other editors. If you continue, you may be blocked from editing. Comment on content, not on other contributors or people. ᛗᛁᛟᛚᚾᛁᚱPants Tell me all about it. 05:45, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
I've just seen your comments at Talk:Argument from authority, and I must caution you to be careful when you pursue arguments by attacking other people's abilities. Please have a read of WP:NPA, and take note of the requirement to "Comment on content, not on the contributor". If you continue attacking your opponents' abilities rather than focusing solely on their arguments, you could end up blocked from editing. Boing! said Zebedee (talk) 10:22, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
