Issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Whether the entire "Politics section" of the JK Rowling article constitutes original research and should be deleted
  • Whether any claims have been made by Liberty as outlined below.
  • Whether Liberty's claims that Rowling's admiration for socialist Jessica Mitford translates into tacit support of her political views constitute original research
  • Whether this is supported by any of the citations provided by Libertycookies
  • Whether Libertycookies's assertion that the books promote a political agenda of anarchy and rebellion among the youth is original research
  • Whether this assertion is supported by the citations given by Libertycookies.
  • Whether Libertycookies's assertion that Rowling's admission of her liking for the books of E Nesbit translates into tacit support for the Fabian Society constitutes original research.
  • Whether Liberycookies's use of Warner Brothers' promotional poster for the fifth Harry Potter film, and the inferred connection with Rowling's supposed anarchist agenda, is original research.
  • Whether Libertycookies's assertions comprise a Synthesis of ideas not found in the sources
  • Whether Libertycookies's edits are in violation of the strict anti-OR rules mandated by WP:BLP

Additional issues to be mediated[edit]

  • Whether Liberycookies's use of a quote by John Granger, which describes a symbolic figure, John Bull, in terms reserved for actual people, is valid or relevant.
    • I've truncated the quote from Granger to eliminate the confusing 'John Bull' part.
  • Whether Libertycookies's insertion of an unverifiable hearsay quote by Rowling biographer Sean Smith should be deleted

Decision of the Mediation Committee[edit]

Reject. Although all three participants have agreed to mediation from the Mediation Committee, the Committee has decided that this request for mediation is not within our scope or our limits. This dispute is largely behavioural, with the link back to the text being far weaker than that of the behavioural issues alone. As evidenced by the above list of 'Issues to mediated', this mainly centres around one parties' apparent failure to follow core policy, WP:OR. This is not something we can help you with. The current arbitration request, Wikipedia:Requests for arbitration#JK Rowling, sits at (1/2/0/0), with Reject, do not see an ArbCom case here. The community can deal with the issues raised here being one of the comments. As evidenced by Jossi's comment on the talk page of this case, one party is merely repeatedly adding what consensus believes is OR, and this party will be blocked if they do it again. Such a situation is not appropriate to work out a 'comprimise solution', as the Mediation Committee refuses to bend consensus' interpretation of official policy on this issue to allow mediation to be effective. Although the parties are thanked for their good-faith input into this case, the Committee respectfully requests that the parties engage in a more user conduct-based dispute resolution method, such as requests for comment or the arbitration case, if accepted.

Decision of the Mediation Committee[edit]

Rejected, firstly, restricting administrator's powers does not fall within our area of work as a committee. Secondly, even if it did, Black Harry is not an administrator.

Reject. Insufficient discussion and prior dispute resolution attempts have been made to justify adding this case to the backlog at the Committee at the present time. In the interests of resolving this dispute amicably and in the briefest possible time for the participants, I suggest obtaining the help of the Mediation Cabal; click here for more details and instructions on filing a case there. I make this decision on the grounds that a) you would be better suited to asking for resolution at the Mediation Cabal, given your dispute is relatively narrow in the scope of the issues; b) I believe the two parties may benefit from the more informal nature of the Mediation Cabal, given the nature of this dispute; and c) you would benefit from the Mediation Cabal's presently-quicker turnover rate in resolving this discussion.
