Reminder: Biographies under General Sanctions
Per "Current areas of conflict" section which links to all the various active Arbitrations, we are reminded that a past Arbitration imposed Discretionary Sanctions - enforceable by an Administrator - on Articles with biographical content relating to living or recently deceased people, and edits relating to the subject (living or recently deceased) of such biographical articles.
When having problems with BLPs that you have to bring to Biographies noticeboard or Administrators Noticeboard it is important to link to that section of the Discretionary sanctions page so that Administrators will not be so reluctant to enforce sanctions against editors who egregiously or chronically violate WP:BLP policy. Is there somewhere on the main page where we can mention both dispute resolution and the Discretionary Sanctions link? Thanks. Carolmooredc (Talkie-Talkie) 14:32, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Citizenship, infobox discussion

Any particular reason the Portal:Biography has to have a picture of slavery ("Pyrates" image). How about an example picture that doesn't needlessly depict human bondage? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:52, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
