Small typo[edit]

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Armenia-Azerbaijan_3/Proposed_decision#Other_Parties neither Grandmaster not Golden the "not" should be "nor" I think? Leijurv (talk) 03:24, 12 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Correct. Fixed in both locations. Primefac (talk) 10:18, 12 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Question About Discussion in Contentious Topic Areas[edit]

Now available at WP:ARCA.

I don't know if I should ask this question here, or go through a more formal request at ARCA, but this is about moderating discussions of contentious topics. If the topic is in a Contentious Topic area, such as Eastern Europe or India and Pakistan, and I tell the participants that the topic has been designated as a contentious topic, is that considered sufficient notice for a subsequent report, if the moderated discussion fails? I think that the editors should be considered to have knowledge of the restrictions at that point, but I am asking. Robert McClenon (talk) 03:36, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I'm guessing we're talking about a DRN moderated discsusion? If I have that right this should probably go to ARCA because with the new rules it's not a clear cut answer and if the consensus right now is "no" I could see us adding it to the footnote.

Yes, I am asking about DRN moderated discussions. Okay, I will ask at ARCA. Robert McClenon (talk) 04:47, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Idk Which is right forum. About the main question, when I see a user inappropriately dabbling in contentious area, I inform of contentious topic areas on talk page with 'Friendly advice' as section heading. Should that be considered a warning? I would say no, a friendly advice should go first and then if mistakes are repeated follow up with formal warning.
Now we have mentor system and providing guidance as friendly advice should be easier IMO. Bookku (talk) 05:10, 12 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Does EE include Sino-Soviet border conflict[edit]

Hi, a clarification as to "broadly construed" in respect to WP:ARBEE and Russia/Soviet Union. Does this capture articles about the Soviet Union in a global context - specifically, the Sino-Soviet border conflict and like? Please ping in response.

Asking at WT:AE. Cinderella157 (talk) 09:45, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Cinderella157: For an informal answer, no. That's got nothing to do with the geographic region of interest (eastern Europe). Russia is included usually only for the parts of Russia that are of interest there. For a formal answer, you will need to ask at WP:ARCA. Izno (talk) 14:11, 21 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
