Ohconfucius requested that an amendment be made to relax the restriction which prohibited him from using any automation in the article space.
At the time of writing, only arbitrators had commented on this request. Two arbitrators said they were "impressed with the quality of [Ohconfucius'] contributions since the Date delinking case, and with the tone and substance of [his] comments", and suggested terminating the automation restriction entirely. The Committee followed their suggestion and adopted a motion which terminates the restriction and permits Ohconfucius to use automation subject to community guidelines. Ohconfucius is still indefinitely limited to editing with a single account. Additionally, he is still topic-banned from style and editing guidelines relating to the linking or unlinking of dates, and related discussions.
Following the 30 March 2010 renewal of his ban on editing articles relating to medieval or ancient history for a period of one year imposed on 14 March 2008, User:Per Honor et Gloria filed an amendment on Tuesday for the topic ban to be lifted. It was decided by unanimous vote of six Arbitrators on 8 November 2010 that the ban be extended indefinitely. PHG's participation is limited to talk pages, subject to civil interaction with fellow editors. The discussion is here.
