Thank you for volunteering to help with dispute resolutionEdit

Thank you for volunteering at both the Third Opinion project and at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. We always need more help in dispute resolution and every volunteer is highly prized. A couple of tips: When you decide to give a 3O, please be sure to remove the listing from the 3O page so that another volunteer won't spend time considering it. (I didn't in the case of Talk:Princess Margaretha of Liechtenstein because I wasn't giving a "real" 3O, though doing what I did could in some volunteers' opinions have caused the Third Opinion Paradox to set in.) If you're going to work at DRN, please add your name to the volunteer list so that our status bot will recognize you as a volunteer rather than as a participant in the dispute, but let me also note that your edit count suggests that you're a newcomer to Wikipedia. If that's the case, let me also suggest that you focus your DR efforts at 3O and avoid DRN for awhile. There's no restriction on newcomers working at either forum, but to do DR well you really need a good working knowledge of Wikipedia policy and guidelines and customary procedures. The disputes which come to DRN tend to be somewhat more complex, but more importantly what you say and do "counts" towards consensus at DRN, whereas all you're giving at 3O is your opinion which the disputants are free to either accept or ignore. Either way, you deserve this:

 
The Dive Right In Award

I award this Dive Right In Award to you as a newcomer who has shown real enthusiasm in helping with administrative tasks at Wikipedia. It's sometimes hard to get your balance, and there's a lot to learn, but keep on trying. Many, many thanks, TransporterMan (TALK) 14:03, 21 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the tips TransporterMan! When I first went to DRN I felt that I didn't feel that comfortable in identifying myself as a volunteer as I lack the experience in mediation. However, I will take your advice and start on 3O first - the reason why I went to DRN was because I was too excited in helping out to solve disputes ;). Ki Chjang (talk) 14:11, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
I've noted your participation in Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard#Haredi Judaism, so you might want to go ahead and list yourself as a volunteer and finish that one up or close it. Thanks again! Best regards, TransporterMan (TALK) 14:24, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
