While the wiki community attempts to work on the basis of encouragement and cooperation, there are occasions where wiki users find themselves unable to reach accord. In the event of this happening, the Arbitration Team may be called upon to intervene, and attempt to find a reasonable compromise that, while perhaps not satisfying both parties, may at least assist in defusing the situation, thanks to the unbiased third party.

Guidelines for Arbitration Requests

In assisting in Arbitration, we generally suggest that both parties agree to the Arbitration. This is not, by any means, a requirement, but we do require that both parties be represented in proceedings.

Any Arbitration request should provide at least the following:

  • The aggrieved parties. Either person vs person, or [list of people] vs [list of people].
  • The reason for the arbitration. This should very specifically be without reference to people, as that information has already been provided. It should be a short paragraph indicating the causes of the aggrievement, and why both parties feel it requires arbitration
  • Any pages affected by the aggrievement. This should be a simple list of links.

Once the Arbitration commences, the Arbitrator will request statements from all parties involved. Any evidence to back up one's statement should be provided in link form. Each party will then have an opportunity to rebut their opponent's statement. After these two steps, the Arbitrator will then consider the case, and reach a conclusion, and determine the outcome that is required. It's the duty of the Arbitrator to move a case he accepted to a subpage of UDWiki:Administration/Arbitration, and to update the status of the arbitration case in the Arbitration Cases in Progress section.

As a note, by requesting an Arbitration, all parties are thus obliged to accept the outcome of the Arbitration. Not doing will be considered Vandalism, and such vandalism attempts will be treated as if the vandal has already received two warnings.

After the Arbitration is over, it will then be moved to an archive page. As publicly accessible pages, they may be used to establish precedent in further, applicable cases.

Current Arbitrators

For guidelines on how to arbitrate, see Arbitration Guidelines.

The following users have placed their hand up as users who are willing to be contacted to act as an Arbitrator. The role of Arbitrator is not restricted to the Administration Team; any user can be contacted as an Arbitrator (even if not listed below) and use this page for the arbitration, so long as both parties agree to the Arbitrator. Users who wish to place their hand up as an Arbitrator should place their name below on the list, using *{{usr|YourUserPage}}

Also note that not all listed Arbitrators are active on the Wiki.

NWO vs Cobra, User:Aichon and User:RadicalWhig

Also note discussions here, here, here, and here. --VVV RPGMBCWS 07:30, 11 September 2013 (BST)

I'm calling this arbitration because of the endless flame war, instigations, manipulating and trolling of NWO members. Here is an example of the slander we get from these users. This page should be deleted and any that have been clearly made to defame and insult NWO. Most of the information on this page can not be edited by members of NWO and quotes are taken out of context. Anyone supporting to keep this page is openly supporting the trolling of a group on this wiki. This page wasn't originally a "Parody group", it was made to insult NWO and it's users. Does deleting This page for being too short and insulting seem logical when The_Best_of_NWO gets to stay because they recently changed the page into a "Parody" with some advice from a Sysop Here to make it into a "Group parody" and that it's a longer insult? Basically the deletion request turned into a move request during the deletion process, skipping protocol. These users have made talking with other users on the wiki hard and very unpleasant by continuously instigating us by means of vulgar name calling and foul language. Furthermore, these players have begun to edit Krinks_Power_Station with false, needless and biased information on a NPOV page. The edits to this page stating our "focus" is false if you read here; keeping a public record of NWO sightings in Krinks on the Krinks page is irrelevant and even if it was relevant, pointless because nobody is going to update the page everytime a NWO member leaves or enter Krinks; Stating how many NWO were "slain" is off topic to the entire page, especially the "inhabitants" section and should be considered biased. Users I would gladly accept to Arbitrate if User:TripleU isn't acceptable:

Many users on the wiki are not what I would consider neutral, so the list is short. -.- 06:26, 11 September 2013 (BST)

I throw my name in as potential arbitrator. My credentials? I haven't played Urban Dead since St. Patrick's Day 2013, almost half a year ago. Hell, this is my first post on the wiki since...What? Almost a year, year and a half? That should qualify me as neutral. --Axe Hack: The Legend Returns to the Wiki 07:07, 11 September 2013 (BST)
With no personal offense intended, Axe Hack, I have had a not-insignificant-not-completely-friendly past interacting with you, so I strongly doubt you could be fully neutral in this case. --RadicalWhig 07:13, 11 September 2013 (BST)
Shot down by Raddy. Back to hibernation/ninja wiki stalker mode then. Bye, UDWiki. It was fun while it lasted. The entire hour of it. --Axe Hack: The Legend Returns to the Wiki 07:54, 11 September 2013 (BST)
i had to look up what arbitration meant. as somebody who made an honest attempt to be neutral in this whole thing, i, anja arnheim, offer to be middle ground. to me, this is not about who is right and who is wrong, it is about seeing both sides and coming up with a solution to the problem. --Surgeon General of the City of MaltonAnja 07:32, 11 September 2013 (BST)
I will accept you if radical accepts axe hack. H4ppy 24 7 08:03, 11 September 2013 (BST)
That makes no sense whatsoever. Do you want the both of them arbitrating together or something? That is a no, by the way.--RadicalWhig 08:08, 11 September 2013 (BST)
Even though you have tried to be neutral, I'm afraid you're not with our past conflicts. Can't trust your opinion, sorry. H4ppy 24 7 07:36, 11 September 2013 (BST)
two things, happy. the fact that i do not have a bias in all of this would make me perfect middle ground. the fact that i was not with your past conflicts, as you say, would make me perfect arbitration. it is like a jury. each juror is cross examined during court procedure, and if they are even exposed to the news, they carry bias and are just to replace with another juror. and since when is a problem solver entitled to an opinion? you are pretty much telling me that you cannot trust me to listen to both sides to find a way to solve this thing you and new world order are going through. i can accept this, but it is logic flaw. enjoy your biased arbitration, since it is what you want. --Surgeon General of the City of MaltonAnja 07:51, 11 September 2013 (BST)

Just kidding, that won't happen. no means no. Shaving your opinion down my throat and rejecting my decision doesn't doom my arbitration to a biased ruling. I know you want to arbitrate, for god knows why. I simply don't trust you because you have been extremely flip floppy, jealous and rude in the past. Thanks, but no thanks. H4ppy 24 7 08:13, 11 September 2013 (BST)

Ahem. Let me, RadicalWhig, make a few comments.
  • "Most of the information on this page can not be edited by members of NWO and quotes are taken out of context."
Putting aside the fact that most of those quotes are quite damning regardless of any possible mitigating context, your quotes on the wiki are 100% public and thus not protected. And of course the information on BoNWO page cannot be edited, just like I can't edit the NWO page without your permission. Unless you want that to change? I wouldn't mind being able to edit the NWO page if you could edit best of NWO. :)
  • "Anyone supporting to keep this page is openly supporting the trolling of a group on this wiki"
Lord no. You mean there has been the presence of TROLLING on the UDwiki? Heavens, such outrage, how could this possibly happen.
  • "Does deleting This page for being too short and insulting seem logical "
No one cares that RadicalWhig-An analysis is too short or insulting, no one made any arguments about that. In fact, though I didn't comment on keeping/deleting it, I would have preferred it be kept. The point is that the page was clearly off topic. There's precedence for Parody groups to be kept on the wiki mainspace, and that precedent does not apply to RW-AA. Also, Paynetrain agreeing to the deletion of the RW-AA page pretty much torpedoed your chances there. You're welcome to take another swing at your retort, though, if that makes you feel better about not understanding UD wiki civics.
  • " Basically the deletion request turned into a move request during the deletion process, skipping protocol. "
Uh, no. You can vote move, delete, keep or speedy. It says that clear as day on the A/D page. Jebus, do some light reading buddy. Spiderzed voted move, and he's the only one who did. It's a perfectly valid choice.
  • " These users have made talking with other users on the wiki hard and very unpleasant by continuously instigating us by means of vulgar name calling and foul language."
I think I will just submit this:
Stfu.jpg Shut 2 idiots up
Posted by you too, no less.
  • " Krinks blah blah blah blah blah"
Not my business, so I'll avoid going into depth. But you do realize that you are also partially at fault, because it takes two to make an edit war, right?
  • "Many users on the wiki are not what I would consider neutral, so the list is short. "
Yeah, your comments on little girls being raped and flipping off random sysops has endeared the populace, I would assume.
With love, --RadicalWhig 07:04, 11 September 2013 (BST)
This is about you leaving us alone so we can leave you alone and the POV edits on krinks. With that, I stand corrected. H4ppy 24 7 07:18, 11 September 2013 (BST)
Before I dive headlong into this, I want to be certain of something.
Having read through your statement, the fact that the only apparent reference to me was as "a Sysop" suggests to me the possibility that you believe I abused my sysop powers in some way. If so, the wiki has a proper course of action for dealing with that sort of issue: you would take me to Misconduct and make your case there. If you decide to go that route, which you are quite welcome to do, the other sysops will make a judgment on whether or not I abused my powers or authority.
If, however, the issue you wish to arbitrate with me is something else entirely, you might consider simply trying to discuss it with me first, rather than going straight to arbitration with no warning at all. This arbitration case comes as a surprise to me, since I didn't think that you and I had any issues that were significant enough to warrant such action. If you believe differently, however, then so be it. Aichon 07:50, 11 September 2013 (BST)
there were two references to you. The word manipulation.have we not had conflicts with PK in the past which has sprung out of control flaming? Have you not been part of this from the start? I do recall your "in character" comments comparing me to a child and influencing many insults even after making everyone in NWO apologize to everyone who seemed to care about what happened.H4ppy 24 7 08:24, 11 September 2013 (BST)
I would like to point out Arbies here is for wiki conflicts and not in-game conflicts. Whatever Aichon has done in-game does not fall in line with a case reagrding wiki related materials... --Axe Hack: The Legend Returns to the Wiki 08:34, 11 September 2013 (BST)

I've been paying attention to Krinks on-and-off since Cornholio. I've got a bit of a background in considering page deletion, and a significant background in editing location pages. If I were to arbitrate, my first priority would be to insure that Krinks Power Station is made accurate and informative. I don't expect that the two sides will ever reach much of an understanding, but I would at least attempt to keep them from brawling around and smashing up the wiki. Also, don't expect me to take much action against Aichon if his only offense was edit protecting Krinks Power Station. --VVV RPGMBCWS 08:32, 11 September 2013 (BST)
