British politics PD[edit]

I'm sure you're aware but we're required (and forgot) to notify you that a remedy has been proposed that relates to you in the proposed decision of the BLP issues on British politics articles arbitration case. For the Arbitration Committee, Kevin (aka L235 · t · c) 18:51, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

They not only "forgot" to notify me, they also "forgot" to notify Philip Cross! Yeah, that ArbCom crew runs a tight ship, don't they? KalHolmann (talk) 22:04, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
"Forgot" isn't quite the right word. The proposed decision was posted in the dead of night in the United States, when all clerks were asleep. I posted it about two minutes before scheduled server maintenance, which caused a thirty minute period where no edits could be saved to the English Wikipedia, so I couldn't give the notifications myself. It took until the next day for the paperwork to be completed by the clerks, who are all volunteers. I do not consider a 24-hour wait on the paperwork to be unreasonable. ~ Rob13Talk 05:59, 21 July 2018 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/BLP issues on British politics articles closed[edit]

An arbitration case regarding BLP issues on British politics articles has now closed and the final decision is viewable at the link above. The following remedies have been enacted:

  1. Philip Cross (talk · contribs) is warned to avoid editing topics with which he has a conflict of interest. Further, he is warned that his off-wiki behavior may lead to further sanctions to the extent it adversely impacts the English Wikipedia.
  2. Philip Cross (talk · contribs) is indefinitely topic banned from edits relating to post-1978 British politics, broadly construed. This restriction may be first appealed after six months have elapsed, and every six months thereafter. This sanction supersedes the community sanction applied in May 2018.
  3. KalHolmann (talk · contribs) is indefinitely restricted from linking to or speculating about the off-wiki behavior or identity of other editors. This restriction may be first appealed after six months have elapsed, and every six months thereafter. All appeals must be directed toward arbcom-l@lists.wikimedia.org.
  4. The community is reminded that publicly posting details or speculation regarding an editor’s personal information or off-wiki behavior violates the policy on outing, unless the information has been disclosed on-wiki by the editor in question. Concerns regarding off-wiki behavior are best reported through an appropriate private channel rather than on community noticeboards.

Reminder to administrators: In May 2014, ArbCom adopted the following procedure instructing administrators regarding Arbitration Enforcement blocks: "No administrator may modify a sanction placed by another administrator without: (1) the explicit prior affirmative consent of the enforcing administrator; or (2) prior affirmative agreement for the modification at (a) AE or (b) AN or (c) ARCA (see "Important notes" [in the procedure]). Administrators modifying sanctions out of process may at the discretion of the committee be desysopped."
