Appealing discretionary sanctions on MOS and naming conventions?[edit]

Wikipedia:Arbitration/Requests/Case/Article titles and capitalisation#Discretionary sanctions

Six of the named parties in the dispute are no longer active on Wikipedia, and several of those are blocked/SBANned. ArbCom has gone through four cycles since then. What exactly is meant by "discretionary sanctions" also seems to have changed significantly.

I was considering appealing for this to be removed now that the dust appears to have settled in the intervening four years, but I was wondering if you could provide me some context that might convince me not to?

Note: I was one of the primary targets of Kauffner, LittleBenW and JoshuSasori, and was subject to several outing attempts and severe real-world harassment over the "issues" of "diacritics" (and apostrophes!) in page titles, so I do appreciate that this is, or was at one time, a very serious issue. Please don't mistake me for someone who wants to engage in disruption and avoid discretionary sanctions -- I just don't like outdated and draconian measures being applied to such a broad range of pages.

At this point, I haven't been active enough to have a terribly accurate opinion on this subject. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 15:27, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Doncram case amendment[edit]

The Doncram arbitration case is amended as follows:
Passed 10 to 0 by motion at 13:11, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

For the Arbitration Committee, Miniapolis 13:17, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Please stop deleting article entries on Kshama Sawant Justin Renquist and United Progressive Party USA pages[edit]

It is clear to me that your edits and deletions are biased. Why don't you use a REAL name? WHO are you? I think this is clear anti-Bernie Bias and I highly suspect you are a HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTER. ARE YOU?

Gillian Duffy[edit]

Please consider taking the protection off Gillian Duffy. It is no longer a burning issue. I think it should only have been protection against article creation anyway. I just want to edit the redirect so it is better focused to United Kingdom general election, 2010#Bigotgate.--Penbat (talk) 08:20, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Penbat, that seems like a reasonable change. I'd raise it as an {{FPER}} on Talk:United Kingdom general election, 2010. It's not the best place for the request, but I think it's the best place for the discussion. --SarekOfVulcan (talk) 18:27, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
