All parties should sign below, indicating that they agree to mediate the issue. If any party fails to sign, or if a party indicates they do not agree, then the mediation will be rejected. Only signatures and "agree" or "disagree" should appear here; any comments will be removed.
I volunteered on one of the other pending mediations, and I'll do the same here. I'm not a member of the mediation committee, but I do have some experiance in various forms of mediation, and I'd be happy to try and resolve this dispute, if the parties consent. JCO312 20:28, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
JCO, is it your intention to become a regular mediator? Why not first simply ask to join the medcom? There is surely a need for more assistance. In the mean time, Ill accept your offer, as long as you first openly state your own interest in the subject, as well as your point of view. The debate is already laid out on the talk page.

I volunteered to help with a couple of mediations because I saw that the medication committee was backlogged and I have some experience/education in mediation (although never in an online context). I didn't apply to be a member because I want to want to throw myself into a few mediations so I can get a better idea for the time commitment and such.
As far as the particular topic, I don't really have a specific interest in it. I do have a degree in political science, so I'm somewhat familiar with the topic, but my interest here is in dispute resolution, not in seeing a particular result on this article. As such, I don't think it would be appropriate for me to lay out my own personal view on what should happen. If you're still interested in working with me, I'll start a talk page (unless you both prefer email or some other method) and we can get started. Cheers, JCO312 18:48, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Let's get started on a talk page.—Perceval 00:39, 8 December 2006 (UTC)
