About becoming a volunteer and this list[edit]

Please note that this is the "social listing" of volunteers, not the volunteer signup sheet. To become an actual volunteer and for you to be recognized by our statusbot as a volunteer so that your edits on the main page show up in the "Last volunteer edit" of our status box, you must also list your name at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard/Volunteering#List of the DRN volunteers. For those reasons, listings here which say nothing about the editor other than their name or name and avatar are subject to being removed, especially if they are not also listed in the proper place to actually become a volunteer. Names not listed there may also be removed since they have not become an actual volunteer.

I'm Steve. I've been doing dispute resolution on-and-off for around seven years. I have a relatively decent knowledge of most policies. I generally prefer to take on more complex cases. Mutual respect is important to me, so I expect that you are prepared to put aside differences and work together as best as possible to bring the issues to a close. I also help maintain the noticeboard along with other volunteers, and would be happy to provide prospective volunteers with assistance or advice.

I am Guy Macon. I have years of experience resolving disputes as an engineer, engineering manager, and director of engineering. I currently have health issues which prevent me from taking new cases, but I am open to helping or advising other volunteers.

I'm TransporterMan. (The transporter part refers to transporter bridges, not to transporter vans or other kinds of transporter.) About all I do at Wikipedia is dispute resolution, volunteering both here at DRN and also at Third Opinion and being a member of the Mediation Committee. In real life, I'm a transactional lawyer (the kind that writes documents and does legal transactions rather than the kind that goes to court) who's been practicing law for over 35 years. I have experience on both sides of the mediation table, both as a giver and taker of mediation, and have received a good deal of mediation training.

GoRuck junkie, Operator of HasteurBot, Guardian of standards, "Zombie Thread" DRN closer. I was involved in the incubation of DRN (and cabalist #3) and had a hand in helping sheperd some of the earliest resolutions. I don't edit DRN all that much any more (as I'm neck deep in Articles for Creation and BotRequests). I keep an eye on the DRN dashboard to help guide DRN threads that have gone on far too long to try and hammer out a compromise and get the thread into the grave. Poke me on my talk page if you need help getting a thread into the coffin.

Oh hey, we get to talk about ourselves? Um...I've been fairly active at WP:FILM and can talk about film/television policies in general. I'm probably a bit of a deletionist with a strong belief with regards to sourcing and original research and such, but I at least like to think I can at least try to see all sides of an issue and make some vague attempt at being tactful when I talk. I've got a BA in English Writing and have been editing here since 2008. I work at a bank and admittedly try to keep most of my interaction with Wikipedia "casual". Oh, and this is all TransporterMan's fault. :P

Hi, I've been a content creator and editor at Wikipedia since 2008. I'm a member of the Mediation Committee and I've participated at most of the noticeboards as well as several Arbitration Committee proceedings and enforcements. I enjoy assisting editors in civil dispute resolution. Differences in opinion and style are the inevitable side effect of the WP collaborative format but we can work together to find common ground, compromise and consensus in a moderated setting. I look forward to working with you. Cheers!

I have been editing Wikipedia since 2005. My philosophy is that Wikipedia is an electronic work place, and that disputes should be resolved collaboratively.

I will try to resolve disputes in a neutral manner whenever I can.

Hi, I'm ThePlatypusofDoom! I have an unhealthy obsession with putting the word "Platypus" in usernames. I am new to dispute resolution, but I'm happy to help. I try to make decisons based on what will help the encyclopedia.

UY Scuti
Hello, I'm UY Scuti. I've been here for some time and I joined this volunteer group to help editors resolve disputes peacefully. I always assume good faith and guide new editors. My works in Wikipedia are widespread. I work in account creation interface, AfDs, AfC submissions, recent changes patrolling and vandalism reverting works. You can know more about me in my userpage. I'm always open to constructive criticisms. Thank you.
