Armenia-Azerbaijan topics

Hello all,

Seems as though when I go to add information or dispute anything my edits are reversed. For example recently I added referenced information that is reliable it was reversed without discussing first. Before that I removed a stat figure that was from a conflicting party on the subject and again it was removed. We should be using reliable third party references on topics like this with the historical disputes. I dont want to cause trouble so I am reaching out here on best ways to go about this. Is any third party members available to help with edits? Thank you for your time. Nocturnal781 (talk) 01:46, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

While the Arbitration committee currently has an open case about the subject area (WP:AA3), I'm afraid that's not really a question the committee or clerks can answer. General advice about dispute resolution and places to go to in such cases can be found at WP:Dispute resolution. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 00:03, 12 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Iranian dissidents and opposition movements

Hi, please check my contributions National Council of Resistance of Iran and its talk page.

Although relatively new to this subject matter, I have contributed to these in good-faith and what I believe to be a competent manner, and I believe that the WP:Verified facts that I've contributed, are allowed by our content policy. Please confirm that they are not "synthetic " statements of WP:Original research, which I understand are forbidden and agree to not make. Or else instruct - Have I inadvertently done "Synth"? Or are there other problems with my contributions of which I should be aware? Thanks for your help.

Also please review my contributions to and proposed move of The_future_of_Iran’s_democracy_movement, currently in AfD.

Another editor has alleged that I've made "Synthetic claims", relying on an overly broad mis-application (IMHO), of an earlier AfD on the Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Iranian_Democracy_Movement. I understand and accept the decision and rationale of the closing admin in that case, @Vanamonde93, but I think it does not apply in the context of these other articles in the way the adverse editor thinks that it does. I thought we had agreed to 'ana-lyze' - which is the opposite of synthesize - and then merge the now-deleted article's content, and the other editor appears to believe that none of it is now acceptable anywhere.

If you could educate us on the Content policy and how it applies in this case, it may help to avoid misunderstanding.

Hi Jaredscribe. I'm afraid this isn't the right place for your questions; the Arbitration Committee does not rule on content matters. Fear not, there are a variety of options available for dispute resolution, which can get other folks opinion on an issue. But be careful not to WP:CANVASS people to your discussion.

@Jaredscribe ah realize I didn't ping you, I'm still used to Enterprisey's reply tool. CaptainEek Edits Ho Cap'n! 01:30, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you @CaptainEek this is the first time I've gone to any of these places within the wiki bureaucracy, I think I will do the OR noticeboard since that is the policy in question. Sorry about that. Jaredscribe (talk) 01:45, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Jaredscribe, I suggest holding off of the noticeboard for the moment. The editor you are in dispute with hasn't edited since your post to the talk page yesterday. You need to give them time; opening multiple discussions isn't going to make them respond any sooner. If you remain in disagreement after a discussion on the talk page, going to WP:ORN might be more helpful. Vanamonde (Talk) 15:46, 1 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
