handling of unblock request

At Wikipedia_talk:Arbitration_Committee/Noticeboard#change_to_block_of_User:Will_Beback I've asked the Arbitration Committee about its response to the unblock request. —rybec 21:02, 7 March 2014 (UTC)

I hope that you can soon continue the necessary, good work that you did if you can promise not be overzealous again and promise not to out people again. Andries (talk) 11:05, 8 March 2014 (UTC)

Will Beback ban appeal

The Arbitration Committee has, by motion, suspended Will Beback's ("WBB") site-ban on the following terms:

  1. Suspension of ban
    1. WBB's indefinite site-ban is suspended subject to his unconditional acceptance of and continuing compliance with the terms below, the purpose of which is to enable him to return to active content work. Failure to comply fully with the letter and spirit of these terms may result in the committee revoking the suspension without warning and reinstating the indefinite ban.
    2. For purposes of enforcement, "on-wiki" refers to any edit in any namespace on the English Wikipedia or on any Project or mailing list or email system hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation or in any IRC channel with "wikipedia" or "wikimedia" in the channel name.
  2. One-way interaction ban
    1. WBB is directed to immediately cease commenting directly or indirectly on-wiki about User:TimidGuy and User:Keithbob. WBB also agrees to not communicate with the above editors, to not contact either their places of work or their colleagues, and to not seek sanctions for them, by any means.
    2. Administrators who receive requests for sanctions are requested to inform the Arbitration Committee by email.
  3. Topic ban: new religious movements
    1. WBB is indefinitely topic-banned from making any edit on-wiki about, or any edit to any page relating to, new religious movements, broadly construed.
    2. This restriction replaces WBB's existing new religious movements topic ban.
  4. Topic ban: conflicts of interest/paid advocacy; real-world identities
    1. WBB is indefinitely topic-banned from making any edit on-wiki relating to conflicts of interest, paid advocacy or the real-world identity of any editor, broadly construed.
    2. WBB agrees to not become involved in any investigation broadly construed, either on- or off-wiki, into the real-world identity of any editor or into their real-world interests and affiliations.
  5. Reconsideration of restrictions
    1. The original 2012 case has been carefully and extensively reviewed by the 2013 and 2014 Arbitration Committees, who have seen no reason to disturb it. No further review of the case will take place.
    2. No request for reconsideration of these restrictions may be made until at least twelve months have elapsed since the date on which the suspension of the ban comes into effect.

The record of the vote on the motion can be seen here. For the Arbitration Committee, Carcharoth (talk) 02:54, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome back, Will!

Live long and prosper! Cullen328 Let's discuss it 03:36, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome back from me too! TFD (talk) 03:42, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

What they said. Writegeist (talk) 04:06, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Yes, welcome back! Herostratus (talk) 04:32, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Great news. I personally really missed you in the areas where I edit. I'm sure you'll find enough to do outside your topic ban areas to keep you busy! Dougweller (talk) 05:39, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Winter's over and Will's back? It's a good week for RL and WP. Rivertorch (talk) 13:29, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome back. Smallbones(smalltalk) 13:47, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

Welcome back. Andries (talk) 20:16, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

I hereby join the chorus of people happy to see you back. Guy (Help!) 22:59, 2 April 2014 (UTC)

Just saw this today! It always makes me happy to see an act of justice such as this, although the restriction prohibiting policy discussion is still pretty absurd. Welcome back! ThemFromSpace 20:27, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

O! Happy Day! Will is Back! ```Buster Seven Talk 05:17, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

I check your pages every couple of months to see the progress of your exile, and now, finally, you are back! Wikipedia is better for it. Welcome back to the Monkey House. Randy Kryn 18:46 22 May 2014 (UTC)

welcome back Will, the name truly fits, will be back :) look forward to seeing you in all the old places. Darkstar1st (talk) 09:17, 31 May 2014 (UTC)

Suspension of site ban

I've unblocked you per the motion suspending your site ban and will be sending a final e-mail to conclude the appeal process. I removed the tags from your user page and user talk page and reduced the protection level on your user page to allow you to edit it. Please feel free to archive your talk page in due course, though you should keep a copy of the restrictions available to refer to. Additionally, as you requested by e-mail, I'm stating here that the terms of your unban do not permit you to discuss or comment on the case that led to your ban. If you have any further questions relating to your restrictions, please e-mail us (the Arbitration Committee) in the first instance. Carcharoth (talk) 03:56, 28 March 2014 (UTC)

So...

I was gonna say, it's a true test of a person to take his lumps and get back on the horse. I assumed that that you were about to pass that test since you went to the trouble of applying for reinstatement. But you haven't edited since your reinstatement after all, so dunno.

Of course maybe you're burned out or disgusted or disappointed or whatever. Of course it's 100% OK not to edit anymore, it's all purely voluntary here.

I know what I'd do though. I was kicked out of the admin corps for (IMO) insufficient reason and some people figured that I'd leave in a huff. I didn't and I like that about myself. It's a hard-knock world after all.

Everybody's different though. No criticism implied. It's entirely possible that editing doesn't work for you anymore and it's important to do what works for oneself. Best wishes whatever you do. Herostratus (talk) 18:21, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

I second the motion. Smallbones(smalltalk) 18:46, 27 April 2014 (UTC)

File:GuruDevtint.jpg listed for deletion

A file that you uploaded or altered, File:GuruDevtint.jpg, has been listed at Wikipedia:Files for deletion. Please see the discussion to see why it has been listed (you may have to search for the title of the image to find its entry). Feel free to add your opinion on the matter below the nomination. Thank you. --Mdann52talk to me! 16:02, 11 July 2014 (UTC)

Non-free rationale for File:GuruDevtint.jpg

Thanks for uploading or contributing to File:GuruDevtint.jpg. I notice the file page specifies that the file is being used under non-free content criteria, but there is not a suitable explanation or rationale as to why each specific use in Wikipedia is acceptable. Please go to the file description page, and edit it to include a non-free rationale.

If you have uploaded other non-free media, consider checking that you have specified the non-free rationale on those pages too. You can find a list of 'file' pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free media lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is already gone, you can still make a request for undeletion and ask for a chance to fix the problem. If you have any questions, please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. Stefan2 (talk) 23:01, 11 July 2014 (UTC)
