General points 
What sort of conflicts would a meta mediation group be receiving? What scope is intended to be covered? Will this be purely mediation orientated, or will it include elements of uninvolved editor feedback? Will there be a formal structure to the group, or will it be purely informal volunteers?

- I'd suggest:
- My idea was for Meta Mediation to handle situations where there's a personal dispute (not a content dispute, typically, but upon acceptance of a mediator sure) and the local wiki has no formal dispute resolution policy.
- We would handle disputes between wikis (which I suspect should be rare), disputes between users on wikis with no DR policy, and disputes based on Meta and other "inside" wikis (but not private wikis) where a dispute resolution system is outside that project's scope. Disputes on projects subservient to certain groups (foundationwiki, mediawiki.org, advisory, wikimania, &tc..) should only be accepted after consultation with the group responsible for the wiki, in case that group wishes to perform mediation themselves.
- Uninvolved editors should have some forum for comments on the case, but unless involved should avoid commenting on the case pages themselves. At the moment, I'm leaning towards a membership based informal mediation, similar to en:wp:medcab but with specific users "qualified" to perform mediation. In all honesty, I ran across some users attempting mediation on cases there who were clearly not qualified and aggravated the situation.
- We're of course discussing all these points, please (PLEASE!) comment on what you'd prefer, why, and start some discussion. :) ~Kylu (u|t) 05:44, 11 April 2008 (UTC)
