Other steps in dispute resolution that have been attempted:[edit]

Issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Should the NPOV Dispute template be added to the article?
  • How should the article balance space between supporters and critics? Should the article devote less space to supporters of Opus Dei and to rebuttals of criticism, devoting more space to critics of the Opus Dei? Should it keep the current proportions of support -vs- criticism? Or should it devote more space to supporters and less space to critics?
  • Should all commentary opinions (from supporters and critics) be placed in their own sections, or should they be interspersed throughout the article ("folded into the narrative")?
  • Should the overall tone of the article be changed so as to be less theological and more historical?
  • Should most of the images be removed from the article?
  • Should the introduction contain multiple specific details about the controversies?
  • Should the extensive discussions of theology be reduced to a short summary (linking to a second sub-article if needed)?

I would like to help mediate this - however parties should be aware that I am not actually on the mediation committee, though I would like to be. Would everyone be alright with me mediating? Armedblowfish (talk|mail|contribs) 18:28, 13 June 2006 (UTC)
Works for me, so long as everyone else agrees to accept you! Thanks for helping out. --Alecmconroy 08:29, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
Apparently, a more experienced mediator is desired. See Thomas S. Major's comment here. Thanks to both users who responded (Alecmconroy for his or her confidence in me, and Thomas for being nice.) Good luck to all of you! Armedblowfish (talk|mail|contribs) 02:43, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
Hi, I'm happy to take this case then. --Wisden17 01:34, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
