What didn't you understand Pina?
The wiki was set up by people fighting Brisbane with the whole of 'their side' of the story. The winners write the history. They then lock the wiki pages so their side gets all the front pages. In brisbanes case it then linked brisbane.indymedia.org to those pages.
Instead, the resolve wiki should be used to develop a statement of basic agreement between conflicting sides. This should then be the conflict's front page.
They have enough people to wear out those who object to their actions with constant arguing. When that doesn't work they blame the victim for complaining and ask the NIMC to delist them.
Oceania refuses to take part in conflict resolution itself. It decides some cities are disfunctional and either tries to force them into conflict resolution internally or it shuts them down. What it should do is kick them out of Oceania not the NIMC. It is a principle of indymedia that groups should split but Oceania insist on groups obeying it.
Many small IMCs in Oceania are being shutdown by the big cities if they argue about the actions of their site hosts. Becasue the NIMC
If you are lost then you should you block the delisting until you can understand.

OK, now i'm officially lost in all this.
Can we please get a background on this conflit. I remember when we face
belgium and brisbane disfilition, ppl set up wikis with the intire story.
Kimci i read your email, and i'm not sure if it is my english abilities
that are too bad or if it's the lack of information, but i understood
Also the email send by the melbourne imc was too lacking of info.
PS: maybe is time that we all set together and talk about that
disfiliation process, maybe this could be one of the things to be
discussed in the irc gathering?
