Issues to be mediated[edit]

The party filing this request uses this section to list the issues for mediation. Other parties can list additional issues in the section below.
  • POV and Tone: The section Vertigo (DC Comics)#Notable Vertigo Writers, and related sections around it, are written in a fannish, insidery way that assumes much "accepted wisdom" on the part of the reader, and is boosterish and slightly fawning rather than neutral
  • Unreliable sourcing: In particular, using quotes from a comic-book distributor's catalog in which one writer's non-disinterested editor, whose books the distributor is selling, waxes grandly about that writer

Additional issues to be mediated[edit]

  • The statement in question by John Hick is utterly incorrect and obviously very misleading. Especially in the CS Lewis and Trilemma articles, its presence is irrelevant to the content and its wording is clearly inappropriate.

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 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; and that I believe the parties may benefit from the more informal nature of the Mediation Cabal, given the nature of this dispute.

  • When I give a valid example on his talk page, he deletes it, calling it "nonsense", which is untrue, especially in light of the stuff he's posted on my talk page (as well as my being forced to restore User:Sillygostly's rants on my talk page. JAF1970 (talk) 17:15, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Reject. The Mediation Committee provides assistance in disputes over the content of articles, rather than complaints regarding the conduct of other editors. This matter is more appropriate for requests for comment, wikiettiquette alerts, or the administrators' incidents noticeboard. I'd encourage you to seek input there regarding the conduct of your fellow editors, should you think it below the standards expected on a collaborative encyclopedia.

  • The article is protected. I have contacted the protecting administrator, Khoikhoi (talk · contribs), and discussed the preceding dispute/developments, which is now the subject of my request. The Administrator recommended formal mediation (here), on my talk page. Particular characteristics of the case does really not encourage informal mediation.

Issues to be mediated[edit]

  • The dispute is on whether the article should be brought back to its version of approximately a year ago (this is the version now protected) in lieu of the version dated 9 August 2008 (15.52), which has been gradually evolved since that version.

Mentioned users have during this time not taken part in the related editing and/or discussion. They have neither presented any argument in favor of the version they want nor any objection against the gradually developed version except for their firm statement that “there is no consensus”.

This has led to a revert war between myself on the one side and those users on the other side for about a week ending up in the protection.

At the time of the protection the article version dated 9 August 2008 (15.52) was in the process of editing and development through discussions between myself and another user Meowy (talk · contribs). The mentioned discussion is not the subject of the mediaton request at this time.

My wish is that the article is further discussed and developed in its natural course in line with wikipedia policies.

An outline of the dispute (revert war) is provided in my appeal to the protecting Administrator on the "About the Protect" section of talk page of the entry (here) as well as our subsequent correspondence with him/her on the "Hemshin peoples" section of my talk page (here).
