The Arbitration Committee opened one new case. Two cases are now open.
The filer, LessHeard vanU (talk · contribs), alleged that there was a sustained and possibly coordinated campaign to have the article, Shakespeare authorship question, reflect a certain point of view. Concerns about tendentious editing, ownership, and attempted outing were also raised. Drafter Newyorkbrad noted that evidence should be submitted within a week, and set 30 January 2011 as target date for a decision.
- Update: an extension of one week has been provided for evidence submissions and the target date for a decision.
Further evidence submissions were made during the week, including shortly after the evidence phase was set to close (see Signpost coverage from 11 January 2011). Since 25 November 2010, no editors have submitted any proposals in the workshop. During the week, analysis of evidence was received from one party, but no proposed final decisions were received from any editor.
The information reflects the state of cases at the time of publication.
Check back for the next Signpost on October 21.
