Wikipedia:Requests for mediation

The Requests for mediation process is used to request formal mediation of a dispute. Formal mediation is provided by the Mediation Committee as a final stage of the content-dispute resolution process. Formal mediation is only suitable for disputes over article content, so requests to mediate grievances with other editors will not be accepted.

Formal mediation is governed by the Mediation Committee's policy at Wikipedia:Mediation Committee/Policy, and so requests for mediation must satisfy the preconditions provided for by that policy.

To file a request for mediation, please skip to #File a request.

For a guide to filing a request for mediation, see Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Guide.

File a request[edit]

To submit a request, use the box below:
  • Further instructions will be displayed at the next page, in a box at the top of the page.
  • If a mediation case page already exists for the dispute name, append 2 to the name; e.g. you would type Swimming 2 below, rather than Swimming.

After submitting your request:

  • Check that MediationBot has added the request to Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/Pending; it may take up to an hour to do this. MediationBot will also notify all the listed parties to the dispute that the request has been filed (or message the Committee if this is not possible). Leave a message here if the Bot fails to do its job.
  • Add the case page to your watchlist, in case the mediator who considers whether to accept your request has any questions.

Open requests[edit]

New requests are listed in this section automatically by MediationBot. The bot runs hourly [search for "MedComClerk"].
Please don't list your case by hand; instead use Wikipedia:Requests for mediation/File. (Even trivial changes to this page are liable to break the case management bot.)
→ There are currently no open requests for mediation. Please see above if you wish to file one.

Issues to be mediated[edit]

Primary issues (added by the filing party)
  1. 04:37, 11 October 2018‎ 2601:188:180:1481:f468:2913:91d5:a5b5 (talk)‎ . . (16,692 bytes) (-21)‎ . . (remove the COI fluff again—this is not a promotional venue, and if you persist in that vein you will be blocked)
  1. domainvia requests :- The subject named in the page, is a multi-instrumentalist [by definition.]

Furthermore, the Grammy-reference concerning the individuals brother [is fact].

Enlighten me as to how these facts are "fluff"?

I await your response.

Additional issues (added by other parties)
  • This is not an issue for mediation, other than further disciplinary action against Domainvia (talk · contribs), a COI account who was already blocked for several days for a history of promotional edits: [1]; [2]; [3]; [4]; [5]; [6]; [7]; [8]; [9]; [10]; [11]; [12]; [13]; [14]. Returned from block for more of same [15]; [16]. Good example of willful ignorance of NPOV policies by a conflicted account, and no indication that they're here for any purpose other than what we've seen already. An indefinite block may be warranted. 2601:188:180:1481:5D63:2B25:812D:39A4 (talk) 20:50, 11 October 2018 (UTC)
  • I recommend that this be closed as frivolous. The OP has a track record of promotional editing on the article in question for which I have previously found it necessary to block them. I have placed the editor on notice that further disruptive editing is likely to result in unpleasantness. -Ad Orientem (talk) 03:24, 12 October 2018 (UTC)
