This page is about individual editors subject to editing restrictions. For restrictions that apply to all editors working in particular areas, see Wikipedia:General sanctions. For editors who are subject to site bans, see Wikipedia:List of banned users.

The Arbitration Committee may impose restrictions on users engaged in inappropriate behavior, usually following a request for arbitration. Such restrictions may be modified or revoked by the Committee by motion; usually following a request for amendment of the original case.

The community may also impose a number of different editing restrictions on users engaged in inappropriate behavior, usually at an administrator's noticeboard. Such restrictions may be revoked at the same venue by the community when the community believes that they are no longer necessary.

If a user has repeatedly violated policy to the point that any further violation will result in a block, specific final warnings worthy of documenting may also be listed here under "Final warnings". This section is only for warnings regarding the further violation of existing policies, rather than for added restrictions that revoke an editor's normal editing privileges.

Types of restrictions[edit]

The following is a list of the most common types of restrictions, however, the wording of such remedies may vary, so be sure to check the wording in each particular case in the first instance prior to relying on default rules. Restrictions that do not specify a duration are considered to be indefinite by default. More unique restrictions which have been imposed in unusual circumstances are not listed.

Account restriction
The user is limited to editing with a certain number of accounts (usually 1).
Civility restriction
The user may be blocked if they make any edits which are judged by an administrator to be uncivil, personal attacks, or assumptions of bad faith.
Probation (supervised editing)
The user on probation may be banned from pages that they edit in a certain way (usually disruptively) by an uninvolved administrator. Probation is usually used as an alternative to an outright topic ban in cases where the editor shows some promise of learning better behavior.
Revert restriction
Usually, the user is limited to a certain number of reverts (usually 1) per page/topic per period of time (usually: 24 hours or 1 week) – exceptions, such as obvious vandalism, may apply. The user is additionally required to discuss any content reversions on the page's talk page. Users who exceed this limit or fail to discuss a content reversion are usually blocked. See also WP:1RR or WP:0RR.
Topic ban
The user is prohibited from editing either (1) making any edits in relation to a particular topic, (2) particular pages that are specified in the ban; and/or, (3) any page relating to a particular topic. Such a ban may include or exclude corresponding talk pages. Users who violate such bans may be blocked. Note that site-wide bans should not be recorded on this page, but should be listed at WP:BU instead.
Interaction ban
The user is prohibited from interacting with one or more users. See WP:IBAN.

Enforcement[edit]

Editors who violate Arbitration-imposed restrictions may be blocked or otherwise sanctioned as described in the relevant Arbitration case. It is always best for enforcement actions to be taken by uninvolved administrators. Generally, blocks for violating civility restriction, revert limitation, or topic bans start at 24 hours per violation, but may escalate after multiple violations. All blocks and topic bans should be logged at the relevant Arbitration case page. Administrators who plan on enforcing Arbitration restrictions should check the case page for any case-specific enforcement language. For more information see Arbitration enforcement.

Ohconfucius Falun Gong 2
(Motion)
Suspended topic ban The Committee resolves that remedy 2 (Ohconfucius topic-banned) in the Falun Gong 2 arbitration case is suspended for the period of one year from the date of passage of this motion. During the period of suspension, any uninvolved administrator may, as an arbitration enforcement action, reinstate the topic ban on Ohconfucius should Ohconfucius fail to follow Wikipedia behavior and editing standards while editing in the topic area covered by the suspended restriction. In addition, the topic ban will be reinstated should Ohconfucius be validly blocked by any uninvolved administrator for misconduct in the topic area covered by the suspended restriction. Such a reinstatement may be appealed via the normal process for appealing arbitration enforcement actions. After one year from the date of passage of this motion, if the ban has not been reinstated or any reinstatements have been successfully appealed, the topic ban will be repealed. 2015-05-07

Cirt Cirt and Jayen466 Topic ban Cirt is prohibited from making any edit of whatever nature to articles relating to new religious movements or their adherents, broadly construed, or to any associated biographies of living people. Indefinite
Editing restriction Cirt is prohibited from editing articles that are substantially biographies of living people if, broadly but reasonably construed, (i) the articles already refer to politics or religion or social controversy; or (ii) his edits introduce to the articles material about politics or religion or social controversy. However, Cirt is permitted to edit other articles that refer incidentally to such living people providing (i) the focus of the articles is not substantially biographical and (ii) his edits are not biographical in nature.

Should Cirt's continued editing raise further concerns about his compliance with the BLP policy, the Committee may expand the scope of this restriction by motion to include all editing relating to living persons. Conversely, if Cirt conforms his future editing to applicable policies and the principles set forth in this decision and Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Manipulation of BLPs, he may submit a request for amendment after one year from the date of this decision seeking a relaxation of this restriction.

Noleander Noleander Topic ban Noleander (talk · contribs) is topic-banned from making any edit relating to Judaism, the Jewish people, Jewish history or culture, or individual Jewish persons identified as such, broadly but reasonably construed, in any namespace.

Any disputes concerning the scope of the topic-ban may be raised on the Arbitration Enforcement page for prompt resolution. Unnecessary "wikilawyering" about the precise scope of the topic-ban is unwelcome and may be cause for further sanctions.

This topic-ban shall be effective indefinitely, but Noleander may request that it be terminated or modified after at least one year has elapsed. In considering any such request, the Committee will give significant weight to whether Noleander has established an ability to edit collaboratively and in accordance with Wikipedia policies and guidelines in other topic-areas of the project. Any perceptibly biased or prejudiced editing concerning any other group would weigh against lifting of the topic-ban and could also result in further sanctions.

Indefinite
Lsorin Henri Coanda Topic ban Lsorin (talk · contribs) is prohibited from editing or commenting on articles about the Coandă-1910 aircraft, its inventor Henri Coandă, or the history of the jet engine. This topic-ban shall be effective indefinitely, but Lsorin may request that it be terminated or modified after at least six months have elapsed. In considering any such request, the Committee will give significant weight to whether Lsorin has established an ability to edit collaboratively and in accordance with Wikipedia policies and guidelines in other topic-areas of the project.

The topic-ban imposed in this decision applies to all pages in all namespaces. However, the topic-ban does not preclude Lsorin from (1) responding to good-faith, reasonable inquiries from other editors on his user talkpage seeking information about the Coandă-1910, as long as Lsorin does not misuse this permission; (2) participating in the arbitration enforcement discussion of any allegation that he violated the topic-ban; or (3) posting an authorized request for the lifting or modification of the topic-ban after the specified time period has elapsed.

Betacommand (now known as Δ) Betacommand 2 Topic Ban.

5.1) The Committee expects that the disputes and disruption underlying this case will cease as a result of this decision. In the event of non-compliance or a continued pattern of disputes, further review by the Committee may be sought after a reasonable time.

This editing restriction shall include a complete prohibition from comments on the respective user talk pages, filing reports on admin noticeboards, reverting edits on articles, commenting in other venues about the other party, or directly responding to each other's comments on article talk pages. This restriction by itself does not prohibit mutual participation on articles, as long as the editors stay away from each other. The restriction is to be interpreted broadly.

If any of the parties feel that the other party has violated this ban or other Wikipedia policy, and no uninvolved administrator responds to the violation within a reasonable amount of time, they may notify 1 uninvolved administrator of the incident on that administrators' talk page 12 hours after the original perceived infraction, and if that first administrator does not respond by at least acknowledging seeing the report within 24 hrs they may notify a second uninvolved administrator in the same manner, but in no case more than 2 notifications on-wiki. Repeated spurious reports to administrators using this mechanism shall be grounds for blocking for disruption.

Kmweber Topic ban Kmweber (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) is not allowed to edit the Wikipedia namespace or Wikipedia talk space.

Kurt is encouraged to edit the article space, and help contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. He is also reminded that the only way to lift this ban is to formally request it be reviewed, or go to ArbCom. For the purposes of the exception to the topic ban, expressing minority or unpopular views in a civil fashion shall not be considered "disruptive", although making personal attacks would be considered disruptive.

Disruptive editing of any AfD page, or editing the AfD page of an article to which he clearly was not a major contributor, will still be grounds for an indefinite block without further notice.

Jaguar Editing restriction ... be banned from using any automated script or tool relating to ENGVAR, broadly interpreted, through Dec. 31, 2014.

  1. ^ Both have been offered the chance to apply for review if they can show productive editing in other areas, though even after review the topic ban would be unlikely to be lifted entirely.
  2. ^ The extended topic ban is somewhat vaguely defined. If in doubt, Terra Novus is to approach an admin for clarification, preferentially User:Dougweller who proposed the extension.
  3. ^ This includes but is not limited to: changing templates to template redirects, changing template redirects to templates (see here for AWB stock changes on this item, with the understanding that bypassing template redirects will only be done when there is a substantive edit being done), changing the spacing around headers and ordered lists (except to make an aberration consistent with the rest of the page), and changing the capitalization of templates. Furthermore, prior to orphaning/emptying and deleting categories or templates, the appropriate processes (WP:CFD/WP:TFD) should be engaged.

Darkness Shines WP:Rollback, WP:CIVIL, WP:NPA
  • Explain all uses of Wikipedia:Rollback or Twinkle rollback functions notwithstanding the normal rules (which will apply to Twinkle rollbacks as well). However I would caution you against unexplained rollbacks in cases where the reason is not immediately obvious.
  • Accept that any personal attacks or gross incivility (solely in the opinion of the enforcing administrator) will be met with a block at least until the expiry date set for this block quite possibly longer.
  • These unblock requirements are not discretionary sanctions themselves (though the enforcement of them may be) so apply on all pages not just pages covered by WP:ARBIPA.
