The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to impose binding solutions to disputes between editors, primarily for serious conduct disputes the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the authority to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail.

RE: Elizabeth Hamm[edit]

We assume she is alive per WP:BDP unless she turns 115 or a source says otherwise. Do not remove her unless you provide a source that says she is deceased. CommanderLinx (talk) 04:16, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

There is a source that says she is deceased, but you don't accept it. In case you are knowing at least a little bit of the topic you know that Ganymed is probably the best source you can get about german longevity. But you ignore this source and defend yourself with some paragraphs that don't fit in these topic. This is a malevolent twist of facts. You can not assume a person of this age as living when there are clear hints that she is deceased. It would be another thing when there were living and dead people in this list to mark her as dead. But this list is only for living people and there is no proof she is living, there are clear hints she is dead and the person most involved in this topic says she is 100% dead. --Dangermouse600 (talk) 12:48, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
If a source exists then the burden of proof is on you to provide it. I'm not ignoring the 110 club, it just isn't a reliable source per Wikipedia's reliable source policies and the guidelines to sourcing at the WP:WOP Wikiproject. Consensus for these articles is that they list people confirmed alive within the last year anyway. CommanderLinx (talk) 23:44, 19 February 2017 (UTC)
