Peace doves[edit]

The Peace Doves are a peace offering, or truce, that you offer to someone whom you've had an argument with recently. An apology or note equipped with one of the Peace Dove images presented on a user talk page can easily make someone's day, resolve disputes, and quickly dissipate harsh feelings.

A nice cup of tea and a sit down
{{subst:Nice cup of tea|message ~~~~}} A nice cup of tea and a sit down

A nice cup of tea and a sit down is a place to publicly declare what it is that you like about other members of the community, or their contributions. The goal is to create goodwill, and perhaps assist the dispute resolution processes that occurs on other pages, or if we're lucky avoid disputes at all. Introduced by Borofkin

Spreading kindness[edit]

These other images can also be useful for spreading kindness, recognizing those who do so, and comforting those who need it. You don't need to be told how and when to use them. This is not a bureaucracy.
