No cases this week; Amendments filed on Climate Change and Date Delinking; Motion passed on EEML
The Arbitration Committee opened no cases this week, leaving none open.
Gigs alleged that Lightmouse (talk · contribs) has engaged in "high speed semi-automated editing without BAG approval in apparent violation of the previous sanctions", and requested an amendment to the sanction, extending it to an indefinite ban on all automated and semi-automated editing.
At the time of writing, following arbitrators' request, Lightmouse has commented; comment requested from the Bot Approval Group remains outstanding.
Hipocrite requested that a new finding of fact be inserted regarding Sphilbrick (talk · contribs), a candidate for Adminship who had made an edit to a page related to Climate Change. If Sphilbrick is elected to this position, such an action would render him an involved admin. At the time of writing, four arbs responded, apparently in unanimous agreement that the proposed amendment is "unnecessary".
A motion was passed to amend the restriction that had been imposed on Piotrus at the conclusion of the case. Piotrus is now banned from topics concerning national, cultural, or ethnic disputes within Eastern Europe (previously, this topic ban encompassed all Eastern Europe topics).
