In the spirit of Wikinews:Admin action alerts, this page is intended for "alerts" with regard to mediation requests. It is done in order to remove the "admin action" aspect of personal disputes on Wikinews. Here, you can request help as you would on WN:ALERT for harassment, bickering, and so on. These things generally do not require administrator intervention.

Note that, in the general case, it takes two to tango. Using this page does not remove your responsibility from any disputes, nor does it make you innocent of any inflamitory or aggressive comments. Usage of this page is a general admission of failed self-mediation.

This tool is not a weapon, and it is not an ultimate power. Your participation in a calm, reasonable, respectful manner is absolutely required for this to work.

Don't forget to have a nice cuppa tea when things get stressful.
