Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Media Viewer RfC closed[edit]

The Media Viewer RfC arbitration case is closed following a suspension period of 60 days. The following considerations were taken by the Committee:

  1. The WMF has introduced a new staff user account policy, prohibiting the use of the same account for both work and non-work purposes. With effect from 15 September 2014, staff are required to segregate their work and non-work activities into separate work and non-work accounts, with the work accounts containing the identifier '(WMF)' in the account name.
  2. Eloquence (talk · contribs) has resigned as an administrator on the English Wikipedia. While this does not prevent him holding staff administrative rights on a designated work account, it does mean that as he resigned the tools while an arbitration case was pending, he may only regain administrative rights on his personal non-work account via a successful request for adminship.
  3. The WMF has announced a number of initiatives aimed at improving working practices. This includes a new software implementation protocol which provides for incremental roll-outs of upgrades and new features.

You know you want to. It's not too soon. And per Floquenbeam it's easy and fun. [1] --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 03:18, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Well, thanks, both, for the vote of confidence. But the aftermath from last year's run was the single most unpleasant thing I've experienced in the last ten years, and I have no wish to repeat it. I could see myself voting for you two, though. :) Like competitive sauna, it's an objectively unpleasant activity, but one for which some people seem to have an inexplicable affinity. 28bytes (talk) 05:20, 18 November 2014 (UTC)

Floquenbeam easy + fun ;) --Gerda Arendt (talk) 08:23, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Floq's observations should be required reading for anyone considering a run. 28bytes (talk) 08:40, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Tell them ;) - Looking at the GGTF case, I am tempted to ask the candidates a second question, "Are you willing to vote for a ban, ever?" And a third: "What do you tell a colleague who can't imagine any other so-called solution (as if it was one) than a ban?" - But now I promised just one question this year. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 09:00, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
OK. That's a pity. I think you'd romp in. Oh well. (It's an unusual field this year.) --Anthonyhcole (talk · contribs · email) 11:02, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
That it is. I suspect we'll see our first non-admin Arb this year, which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing. 28bytes (talk) 14:51, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
I think it'd be a bloody good thing. I also want to chime in on the "get your arse into the ring" posse. WormTT(talk) 14:52, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
There have been non-administrator arbs before, although the last was some time ago. Newyorkbrad (talk) 15:13, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
Interesting... looks like I need to brush up on my wiki-history a bit. 28bytes (talk) 15:55, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
  • Hey 28, you know what I think, both about the benefit to WP if you were an arb, and the wisdom of you actually doing it... :) --Floquenbeam (talk) 14:55, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
    Heh, indeed I do. :) 28bytes (talk) 15:55, 18 November 2014 (UTC)



Could you help me to change my Wikipedia username from PiniB to "Pini PB" ?

Thank You, Pini

Yes check.svg Done. 28bytes (talk) 13:23, 21 November 2014 (UTC)

Help[edit] He is a troll — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:27, 11 December 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps I am slow tonight. I don't see the trolling. Can you explain? 28bytes (talk) 00:23, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't see it as trolling; factually inaccurate editing yes, but probably in good faith. Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 00:28, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks, Luke, looks like you've got it sorted. 28bytes (talk) 01:27, 12 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Here's another one.[2] Could you deal with this please? I'm not keen to have banned users on IP's stalking me around Wikipedia disrupting any conversation I try to have. Thanks! Jehochman Talk 22:30, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
If that's who I think it is, brokering a détente between the two of you is unfortunately beyond my diplomatic abilities. You may need Pope Francis for that. 28bytes (talk) 23:20, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for considering it and Merry Christmas! Jehochman Talk 00:37, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
Merry Christmas to you as well. Cheers, 28bytes (talk) 00:43, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
