Community discussion[edit]

A community discussion (here) has placed Climate change and related pages on article probation - effective as of 23:30, 1 January 2010 (UTC). Please direct all discussions of this remedy to Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard/Incidents.


Pages related to Climate change (broadly construed) are subject to the following terms of article probation:

  • Any editor may be sanctioned by an uninvolved administrator for disruptive edits, including, but not limited to, edit warring, personal attacks, incivility and assumptions of bad faith.
    • Sanctions imposed may include restrictions on reverts or other specified behaviors, bans from editing the climate change pages and/or closely related topics, blocks of up to 1 year in length, or any other measures the imposing administrator believes are reasonably necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of the project.
    • For the purpose of imposing sanctions under this provision, an administrator will be considered "uninvolved" if he or she is not engaged in a current, direct, personal conflict on the topic with the user receiving sanctions (note: enforcing this provision will not be considered to be participation in a dispute).
  • Prior to any sanctions being imposed, the editor in question shall be given a warning with a link to these provisions; and, where appropriate, should be counseled on specific steps that he or she can take to improve his or her editing in accordance with relevant policies and guidelines.
  • Sanctions imposed under this provision may be appealed to the imposing administrator, the appropriate administrators' noticeboard, or the Arbitration Committee.
  • Administrators are not to reverse such sanctions without either (1) approval by the imposing administrator, or without (2) community consensus or Committee approval to do so.
  • All sanctions imposed are to be logged at Wikipedia:General sanctions/Climate change probation/Log#Log of sanctions.

How to avoid being subject to remedies[edit]

  • Do not edit-war;
  • Interact civilly with other editors;
  • Avoid making repeated comments unrelated to bettering the article;
  • Avoid making repeated comments about the subject of the article;
  • Avoid repeatedly discussing other editors, discuss the article instead;
  • Not much leeway in pages under probation, so basically be a model Wikipedian;
  • We actually know when we cross the line; we are all intelligent people;
  • Don't get worked up when you get subjected to remedies such as a temporary block or ban. Take a break and come back refreshed.

Log of sanctions[edit]

  • GoRight (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · logs · edit filter log · block user · block log) indefinitely blocked by 2over0 [1]. - 2/0 (cont.) 18:27, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
    • Unblocked 13:12, 6 February 2010 by User:Bwilkins [2] with conditions accepted by GoRight including civility parole and topic ban (three months each). Unblocking admin adds: " I would suggest that transgressions during that period would more likely lead to a more formal ban, rather than a simple indef. I would also suggest that contraventions after the specified period would bring us right back to where we are now. This conditional unblock is not permission to wait a few months and then return to negative patterns of editing." --TS 13:24, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
