Hello, Daniellagreen. Voting in the 2016 Arbitration Committee elections is open from Monday, 00:00, 21 November through Sunday, 23:59, 4 December to all unblocked users who have registered an account before Wednesday, 00:00, 28 October 2016 and have made at least 150 mainspace edits before Sunday, 00:00, 1 November 2016.
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.
Hi, I happened across a discussion with positive mention of your editing along with concern expressed about what I gather was harassment of you as an editor here having likely driven you away. I notice Pat McGee Trail and other nice contributions on your part, and am sorry that you have largely withdrawn, as the world would be better if you were contributing more. :) I have edited a lot of upstate New York articles, and have hiked some trails, and have in general enjoyed contributing photos and editing about non-controversial historic sites such as are listed here. Unexpectedly I encountered a lot of negativity and it colored my entire experience here, although I persisted and currently am cautiously optimistic that people and processes have somewhat changed and/or I have better skills to deal with awful stuff when it happens, including to help editors being treated badly. I hope you might consider returning more in 2017 or eventually; if you do please feel free to contact me (at my Talk page or by email) at any time, and allow me to possibly be helpful. Happy trails! --doncram 20:21, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
