Falkland Islands Article in Arbitration[edit]

Having briefly reviewed the article's discussion history, I've identified you as a potentially aggrieved editor whose contributions may have been negatively impacted by the actions of a group of editors who are alleged to be POV-pushing and engaging in WP:GAMES. I invite you to peruse the arbcom request and voice your opinion and experiences, at your leisure. The link is:

Dispute resolution survey[edit]

Dispute Resolution – Survey Invite


Hello Gibnews. I am currently conducting a study on the dispute resolution processes on the English Wikipedia, in the hope that the results will help improve these processes in the future. Whether you have used dispute resolution a little or a lot, now we need to know about your experience. The survey takes around five minutes, and the information you provide will not be shared with third parties other than to assist in analyzing the results of the survey. No personally identifiable information will be released.

Please click HERE to participate.
Many thanks in advance for your comments and thoughts.


You are receiving this invitation because you have had some activity in dispute resolution over the past year. For more information, please see the associated research page. Steven Zhang DR goes to Wikimania! 02:19, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Dispute Resolution IRC office hours.[edit]

Hello there. As you expressed interest in hearing updates to my research in the dispute resolution survey that was done a few months ago, I just wanted to let you know that I am hosting an IRC office hours session this coming Saturday, 28th July at 19:00 UTC (approximately 12 hours from now). This will be located in the #wikimedia-office connect IRC channel - if you have not participated in an IRC discussion before you can connect to IRC here.

Gibraltarpedia[edit]

I'm guessing from your name and contributions that you might be interested?~ Victuallers (talk)

You guess wrong. However as its a Gibraltar based initiative it should be free of the interference that has plagued the current wikipedia pages and discouraged me from making any further contribution. ~~gibnews — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.195.224.7 (talk) 14:12, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm so sorry that you have had this experience. I have found the GibraltarpediA controversy frustrating as well. I stopped contributing to DYK for several weeks over it. Certainly, however, there should be no requirement that you publish your real identity to upload images. If someone is mandating this, they are incorrect. Anne (talk) 20:39, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Clarification motion[edit]

A case (Gibraltar) in which you were involved has been modified by motion which changed the wording of the discretionary sanctions section to clarify that the scope applies to pages, not just articles. For the arbitration committee --S Philbrick(Talk) 21:58, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

Whereas I thank you for the information, I no longer wish to participate in a project where agents of the Spanish Government rewrite history 'their way' and get away with it. Life is too short to waste and unlike them, nobody paid me. --Gibnews (talk) 08:55, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
