Have you read the AMA FAQ?

  • Answer: Yes.

How would you describe the nature of this dispute? (policy violation, content dispute, personal attack, other)

  • Answer: Content dispute

What methods of Dispute Resolution have you tried so far? If you can, please provide wikilinks so that the Advocate looking over this case can see what you have done.

  • Answer: None.

What do you expect to get from Advocacy?

  • Answer: I am new to Wikipedia and seeking guidance on which dispute resolution methods would be the most appropriate 1st step.


In essence I don't think that a particular block of text belongs in this particular article, and I advocate moving it. I think the talk page will be clear enough on the nature of the dispute. It seemed from WP:DR that 3rd party might be an appropriate next step, but the dispute is only *mostly* between 2 people, and I don't know how this works. It isn't representation that I seek, but an explanation/clarification of policy.

Update: Neigel von Teighen, thanks for opening the case. As you'll see I'm sure, the status has changed a little. It's pretty clearly not between 2 editors now, and as far as I can tell Hypnosadist is the only one advocating his viewpoint on the matter. The content issue itself may in fact be resolved now, I'm not sure. Any thoughts/clarifications you have on WP:DR are still appreciated. Thanks. Mishlai 14:52, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
