Forgetting disputes[edit]

In the spirit of MeatBall:ForgiveAndForget, I'd like to propose that we blank old disputes if the two parties agree. This would help us to focus on working together again. (The history would still be preserved in case anyone needs to look it up.) I would also strongly recommend that private mediation is used whenever possible -- the more publicly a dispute is carried out, the more ugly it is likely to get, because people feel like their words are being judged by the community as a whole. Thoughts?--Eloquence 23:22, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Personally it doesn't bother me, but I do see the merit in blanking. Dan100 (Talk) 23:29, 23 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Gathering consensus to make this policy[edit]

There have been no reactions, so I suppose there is a silent agreement.--Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 19:15, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

My edits to this page, Oct 3[edit]

My apologies for those edits - having issues with the ways Brian was showing this page on talk pages, and linked through incorrectly. Everything should be fixed now. Lyellin 19:15, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Dispute archiving[edit]

Can we archive the Brian McNeil / Matisse dispute somewhere, or at least remove it from the policy page? Microchip08 (talk) 08:51, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Done (without the fancy linking and templating stuff.) - Amgine | t 19:30, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
