Signpost Arbitration interview request
Excuse me. I am lead writer for the Signpost's "Arbitration Report" and am wondering if you would be interested in answering some interviews questions as an outgoing Arbitrator. The questions can be asked through email, unless answering them here would be a more suitable choice. GamerPro64 19:37, 19 January 2017 (UTC)
