Welcome to the dispute resolution noticeboard (DRN)
This is an informal place to resolve small content disputes as part of dispute resolution. It may also be used as a tool to direct certain discussions to more appropriate forums, such as requests for comment, mediation, or other noticeboards. You can ask a question on the talk page. This is an early stop for most disputes on Wikipedia. You are not required to participate. Any editor may volunteer! Click this button to add your name! You don't need to volunteer to help. Please feel free to comment below on any case. Be civil and remember; Maintain Wikipedia policy: it is usually a misuse of a talk page to continue to argue any point that has not met policy requirements. "Editors must take particular care adding information about living persons to any Wikipedia page. This may also apply to some groups.
The DRN noticeboard has a rotating co-ordinator, whose role is to help keep the noticeboard organised, ensuring disputes are attended to in a timely manner, are escalated to alternative forums as required, and that new volunteers get any assistance that they need. The coordinator also collects monthly metrics for the noticeboard.
The current coordinator is Nihlus.

|Closed. This is a real mess that is beyond the scope of this noticeboard. After the subject article was semi-protected, one of the subject editors has done a back-door delete of the article by replacing it with a redirect to the series. As a result, there is now nothing about which to discuss the content. This noticeboard is not the place to discuss the propriety of a back-door deletion of an article. That can be better discussed either as a front-door deletion via Articles for Deletion or as a conduct dispute at WP:ANI or WP:ANEW. My own opinion is that the back-door deletion was disruptive, but that is only my opinion. In any case, this is beyond the scope of DRN. Robert McClenon (talk) 02:49, 13 December 2017 (UTC)|
Have you discussed this on a talk page?
Yes, I have discussed this issue on a talk page already.
Location of dispute
User:JMichael22 and myself disagree on how Foxwoods Resort Casino should be labelled on professional boxing record tables, specifically Roy Jones Jr., which subsequently affects 100+ other articles. User:JMichael22 maintains that the venue should be displayed as being in the Indian reservation of Mashantucket, Connecticut; I maintain that it should be displayed as being in the town of Ledyard, Connecticut, in which Mashantucket is located.
MOS:BOXING/RECORD, specifically the Location element, has long stipulated that fight locations are to be labelled as "[venue] (arena, stadium, hall, etc.), [city or town], [state], [country]". Areas within a city (boroughs, suburbs, reservations, etc.) are overly specific and should be omitted for brevity on a wikitable.
Have you tried to resolve this previously?
We have discussed extensively at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Boxing, with both of us providing numerous WP:RS confirming that either descriptor (Mashantucket, CT; Ledyard, CT) is valid. Sources include primary and secondary. Overall, this is a labelling issue on which we cannot agree.
How do you think we can help?
Mediate on whether Foxwoods Resort Casino should be labelled, in professional boxing record tables, as being specifically in the reservation of Mashantucket, CT; or generally in the town of Ledyard, CT. Bearing in mind that labelling it as Mashantucket would somewhat disrupt the consistency set forth above in MOS:BOXING/RECORD, namely the convention of "[venue]/[city]/[state]/[country]".
I found it very simple the Foxwwods Resort Casino sits on the Mashantucket tribal land it is owned and controlled by the Mashantucket tribe. it is declared on numerous sources that the Foxwoods Casino is located in Mashantucket, CT. The Official website and social media accounts including Twitter and Facebook state the casino is located in Mashantucket. The Land is within Ledyard but has nothing to do with the town, it stands on its own as a Native American controlled and owned venue which is located on their land Mashantucket and is not under US government control. Ledyard is a town under US government control. Something that I feel makes things clear if the casino was part of Ledyard, CT then the Native American tribe wouldn't own the land it stands but that is not the case the tribe owns the land it is on and does infact through multiple sources refer to the Casinos location as Mashantucket, CT JMichael22 (talk) 20:12, 9 December 2017 (UTC)
|Closed for multiple reasons. First, the discussion at the talk page has been inadequate. Second, this appears to be primarily a conduct dispute, in that the filing party is asking that other editors be banned, which is not the purpose of this noticeboard. Third, the filing editor is an unregistered editor and the article has been semi-protected due to edit-warring by unregistered editors. Fourth, there appears to be too much discussion of the castes of some of the editors, which is irrelevant and inappropriate. The editors are advised to discuss on the article talk page. Disruptive editing may be reported to WP:ANI, or Arbitration Enforcement, because the article is about India; Arbitration Enforcement is likely to be more efficient than WP:ANI.
